How to Select the Right Therapist for You

It’s not easy to find a good therapist. Therapy can be incredibly cost-prohibitive, for one thing, depending on insurance coverage. Then, there are scheduling constraints (it’s hard to find a therapist with open hours if you work a traditional 9-to-5), location constraints, general time constraints, and trying to suss…

This ‘Cannonball’ Pulsar is Racing at Escape Speed Across the Milky Way

Astronomers discovered a pulsar, a kind of zombie star, racing across the galaxy so quickly that it could get from the Earth to the moon in six minutes flat. The dead star has a tail pointing back toward the remnant of a supernova that exploded 10,000 years ago. Astronomers suspected this might have provided the kick that sent the pulsar speeding off, but had to wait for 10 years of telescope data to make their case convincing. A pulsar is the rapidly spinning neutron star left over after

Make Sure Your Campaign Donations Aren’t Funding Scams

You know what time it is: that moment when politicians spam your inboxes with requests for money. And gosh darn it, sometimes, they deserve it! Beto, take my money! Warren, here’s my debit card and bank account information! AOC, here’s my life savings! But sometimes, it’s worth being a little more discriminating when…

Scientists Find That Anesthetics Can Weaken Traumatic Memories

Some memories can leave us scarred for life. For example, the memory of a dog attack may leave even the most canine-loving person terrified of every pooch they come across. Fortunately, traumatic memories may not be permanent. In a new study, researchers have discovered that a general anesthetic can weaken emotionally disturbing memories. The find means a routine anesthetic could potentially treat psychiatric disorders such as phobias and anxiety. “This is proof of principle,” said Bryan

An Important Group of European Hunter-Gatherers Taught Themselves To Farm

Some 12,000 years ago, the land was exceptionally fertile curving up from the Nile River basin across Jordan, Syria, and Iraq, down into the Tigris River Valley. The area’s earliest settlers grew wheat, barely and lentils. Some kept pigs and sheep. Farming soon replaced hunting and foraging as a way of life there. The region became known as the Fertile Crescent, the birthplace of agriculture. This pastoral lifestyle eventually spread across Europe from a place called Anatolia, which sits

You Can Treat Radishes Like Little Potatoes

To most, radishes are a salad vegetable, and a good one at that. I really enjoy a raw radish—particularly dipped in butter with a pinch of salt—but a cooked radish is surprisingly delightful.

How Did Dinosaurs Hear The World? Alligators Give Us Clues

How did dinosaurs hear? Researchers now have an idea thanks to alligators. In a new study, researchers have discovered that American alligators process sounds the same way that barn owls and chickens do. And because birds and reptiles last shared a common ancestor nearly 250 million years ago, the finding means the shared hearing strategy originated before dinosaurs existed. "We know so little about dinosaurs," Catherine Carr, a biologist at the University of Maryland in College Park, who
