On Star Trek: Discovery, Does Anyone Actually Want to Follow the Rules Any More? 

Star Trek might be the ultimate nerdy franchise not because it’s about space exploration, spaceships, and science, but because really, it’s a TV series about a group of people who really love rules.

A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Brings Out Star Trek: Discovery's Best

Pretty much every other episode of Star Trek is a good “Hey, everything’s broken?” or “We encountered a thing and everything’s broken?” type of episode. On the latest Discovery, basically five of those episodes happened at once—but after pulling themselves out of multiple wringers, the crew might be in better form…Read more...

Trump wants U.S. military in Iraq to 'watch Iran': CBS interview

The Republican president lamented "endless wars" in Syria and Afghanistan in an interview with CBS' "Face the Nation" and made clear he wants to reduce the costly U.S. military presence in those countries despite warnings against such moves from his military advisers and spy chiefs.

Advertising Weed Is Tough When the Feds Consider You a Drug Dealer

Facebook, which like Google prohibits marijuana ads, has kicked some weed sellers off Instagram. Earlier this month CBS declined to air a commercial touting the benefits of medical marijuana during the Super Bowl. With a growing number of states legalizing weed for recreational and medical purposes, the U.S. market could surge eight-fold to $80 billion in sales by 2030, according to Cowen & Co. But it’s hard to see that happening unless companies can market their wares the way beer and liquor ...

You’re Only As Old As You Feel: The Research of Harvard Psychologist Ellen Langer Shows Why Age May Be a Mindset

You’re only as old as you feel, right? The platitude may be true. In a scientifically verifiable sense, “feeling”—a state of mind—may not only determine psychological well-being but physical health as well, including the natural aging processes of the body. Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer has spent decades testing the hypothesis, and has come to some interesting conclusions about the relationship between mental processes and bodily aging. In order to do the kind of work she has for dec...
