Under a Blood Moon: A Look at Famous Lunar Eclipses in History

On the evening of Jan. 20 and early morning Jan. 21, the moon will undergo a total eclipse visible over all of the Americas. Today such a spectacle provides good opportunities to judge the clarity of our atmosphere based on the brightness and color of the eclipsed moon, to observe the Earth's shadow passing over prominent lunar craters, and to simply stare into the sky at a beautiful celestial show. But eclipses in the ancient (and not so ancient) past often terrified onlookers, who viewed...

Cisco CEO Warns Higher Tariffs Will Force Companies to Cut R&D

U.S. companies will end up absorbing the costs of higher tariffs, spending less on the research and development that can lead to technological breakthroughs, Robbins said during a meeting with government officials in D.C. earlier this month. "If we go to the next wave in tariffs, tech companies in the U.S. will have to absorb that and cut back in R&D when what they want us to do is lead in innovation,” Robbins said in an interview at Bloomberg’s New York office Wednesday.

Anti-vaccine movement is powered by ‘hysteresis’, study reveals

A new study explores society's relatively poor vaccination coverage through the lens of hysteresis, a phenomenon that describes how systems are dependent on their history.The results show how 'imperfect vaccines' and episodes of public confusion can result in sharp drops in population-wide immunization rates, and how it can take years for those rates to recover.By promoting an individual's choice to get vaccinated as an altruistic behavior, societies might be able to reach vaccination goals soon...
