Gender fluidity and Autism open gates of power for women

James Maher Photography US scientists are scared to talk about differences between male and female brains, probably because it will get them fired. The loudest voices say there cannot be male and female brains because there are women and men who think in similar ways. While universities in the US squelch ideas they don’t like, the rest of the world accepts the scientific theory that there is a male and female brain, and Autistic is the word to describe women who think the same way men do. ...

Pattern Seekers: Identifying Neurodiversity in the Law

Are you a systemizer? In Patter Seekers: How Autism Drives Human Invention, Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen (Professor and Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University) discusses the significance of systemizing to inventions. He posits that humans have a special kind of engine in the brain. They seek out if-and-then patterns. This way of thinking developed about 70,000 to 100,000 years ago, when the first humans began to make complex tools. Dr. Baron-Cohen categorizes the brain into 5 di...

Is Autism the Legacy of Humans Evolving the Ability to Innovate?

The CBC Radio show Quirks and Quarks shares an interesting theory: If you find yourself pondering the marvel of aerodynamics when you fly on a plane, or if you concentrate on the structure of music as it plays, rather than simply listening, you may score high on measures of "systemization," according to University of Cambridge neuroscientist Simon Baron-Cohen. And if so this may reflect abilities that he thinks may have first evolved in humans between 70,000 and 100,000 years ago, when our hu...

‘Borat 2’ Star Maria Bakalova Felt It Was Her “Duty” to Go Through With Giuliani Scene, Had a Sweet Reunion With Babysitter Jeanise Jones

Maria Bakalova was the undeniable breakout star of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, an unknown Bulgarian actress straight out of acting school who was able to hold her own against prankster extraordinaire Sacha Baron Cohen and dupe U.S. political figures like Rudy Giuliani. So it’s no wonder that the most buzzed about scenes from the Borat sequel usually feature Bakalova, including the aforementioned Giuliani interview and a sequence involving Jeanise Jones, a kindly 62-year-old woman who was recrui...

Giuliani Flips Out After Fox Host Confronts Him Over Infamous ‘Borat’ Scene

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, blew a gasket on Tuesday night when Fox Business host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery pressed him on his shocking appearance in Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film, “Borat 2.” “Do you regret your interaction in the Borat movie?” Kennedy asked Giuliani, who was filmed lying down on a hotel bed and sticking his hand down his pants while speaking to an actress posing as a 15-year-old girl. “Now that’s a stupid question isn’t it?

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm hasn’t even been out for an entire week, and it’s already been making waves in a variety of ways.

So of course it’s prompted some verbal sparring between the petty world leader and Borat star and creator Sacha Baron Cohen. But t...

'He was very influenced by Lenny Bruce and he realized that if he could make people laugh, he could get them engaged in the cause.'...
