    Facebook’s role in Brexit — and the threat to democracy | Carole Cadwalladr

    So, on the day after the Brexit vote, in June 2016, when Britain woke up to the shock of discovering that we’re leaving the European Union, my editor at the “Observer” newspaper in the UK asked me to go back to South Wales, where I grew up, and to write a report. And so I went to a town called Ebbw Vale. Here it is. It’s in the South Wales Valleys, which is this quite special place. So it’s had this very, sort of rich, working-class culture, and it’s famous for its Welsh male voice choirs and rugby and its coal. But when I was a teenager, the coal mines…

    The lethality of loneliness: John Cacioppo at TEDxDesMoines

    Translator: Tatjana Jevdjic Reviewer: Elisabeth Buffard When you look out onto the world, it certainly appears the Earth is flat. The ground beneath you is stable and unmoving, and stars and sun circle the Earth. Hundreds of years ago, elaborated theories were developed based on these common sense observations to explain and predict the reach of the oceans and the movement of celestial bodies. When science demonstrated that these common sense observations were illusions, and depicted the Earth and the Universe in a completely different way, people slowly came to accept that the world was not as it seemed. Scientific measurements and sophisticated calculations have repeatedly demonstrated that what we…

If you’ve spent any time digging in the ground, you’ve certainly met them, too. I’m talking about earthworms! These animals are super cool, and super hardworking, too!

Can you spot the differences? Remember what makes an insect: six legs, three main body parts, and a hard exoskeleton. Our earthworm doesn’t match that at all!…
