Make a Vegetarian-Friendly Caesar Dressing With Blue Cheese

A true Caesar salad dressing gets its rich, salty funk from anchovies, but not everyone eats fish. Shouty purists may insist that those people simply don’t deserve a Caesar salad, but I think that’s a little harsh, especially when you can make a very good vegetarian approximation with blue cheese.

How To Reclaim Space On Your Windows 10 Hard Drive After the October Update

It feels like Microsoft is ramping up its major system updates for Windows, with one now coming every six months or so. But the problem, apart from Redmond eating your files, is that Windows updates always leave a lot of temporary files and other space-stealing junk on your PC.

Don’t Project a Sexual Identity Onto Little Kids 

A smiling infant boy is not a “ladykiller.” A toddler offering an adult a cookie is not a “flirt.” Literally nothing a baby does needs to be turned into a romantic moment, so let’s stop saying things that imply otherwise.

RIP OAPL: An Academic Publisher Vanishes

A dubious predatory academic publisher called Open Access Publishing London (OAPL) seems to have died. Their website has gone down, taking some 1,500 scientific papers with it. What can we learn from this? Long-time readers will remember my series of posts on OAPL back from when I first investigated it in 2013. As far as I can tell, it was a one-man operation. The man turned out to be a Dr. Waseem Jerjes. Jerjes is a dental surgeon with many legitimate research papers to his name, and he

The Human Brain Evolved to Believe in Gods

It’s natural to believe in the supernatural. Consider how many people worldwide belong to a religion: nearly 6 billion, or 84 percent of the global population, and these figures are expected to rise in the coming decades. In the U.S., surveys show 90 percent of adults believe in some higher power, spiritual force or God with a capital G. Even self-proclaimed atheists have supernatural leanings. The same study found all atheists reject God, but one-in-five accept higher powers or spiritual fo

The Five Brightest Planets Align in the Night Sky

For the second time this year, the five brightest planets in our solar system — Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars — will be visible in the night sky at the same time. The planets will form a line that rises up from the horizon in the western sky and it will be easiest to see after sunset this Thursday, October 18. However, all month these planets will be visible in the same general areas of the sky. Mercury and Venus will be most visible west and closer to the horizon, while Sa

How to Stop Getting Absurdly Long CVS Receipts

Hayabusa2’s Amazing Close Encounter With Asteroid Ryugu

This past summer, Hayabusa2 — a spacecraft, operated by the Japanese Space Agency JAXA, sent to collect and return asteroid samples — arrived at asteroid Ryugu. Today, the craft comes close to the asteroid in the first of two touchdown rehearsals. After reaching the asteroid on June 27, Hayabusa2 primarily observed Ryugu from “The Home Position,” which is a position about 65,617 feet (roughly 2,000 meters) away from the asteroid. Today, Hayabusa2 is descending to only 82 feet (25 meters)
