A new study has found that flocking on curved surfaces gives rise to unique patterns that nature could be taking advantage of – in our bodies, in the world. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the project of modernity, as had been promoted by Bacon and Descartes, led to rapid scientific advance and the successful development of a new type of natural science, mathematical, methodically experimental, and deliberately innovative.
In my year and a half on the replication beat for Slate, the phrase science is broken has appeared in the headlines of two of my stories Another headline claimed that cancer research is broken,” while a fourth announced, with reference to psychology, that everything is crumbling.” I could say that reporters rarely write their own headlines—indeed, those phrases originated with my editors—and that I don’t believe I’ve ever put the B-word in the body of a replication piece.
Not since 1970 and 1979 has a total solar eclipse been visible to so many people in the US. The 1970 total solar eclipse event was visible to many people along the east coast before the shadow passed out to sea near Norfolk, VA. Even though the driving time from my home to Norfolk was approximately six hours, I made an error in judgement in not traveling to Norfolk from northern New Jersey.
It never occurred to the researchers even once that the bond between the two males could have been sexual and that the two could be lovers (of course it doesn’t mean that they’d be having anal sex which is considered the only evidence of male to male sexual behaviour by the researchers).
While on the one hand science helped in intensifying the pressures on men to have sex with women in order to qualify as men, at the same time the forces of heterosexualisation were destroying men’s spaces by heterosexualising them, and were forcing out in the open the male-male sexual bonds that had survived quietly all these hostile ages under the safety of men’s solidarity provided by the mainstream men’s spaces.
