Otherworldly images from the Puna

The Puna de Atacama is the high plateau of the Atacama Desert that stretches across northern Chile and Argentina. Last August, during the South American winter, we visited this eerie Mars-like landscape, where volcanoes, sand, and salt mingle. In the middle of the Puna sits one of Argentina’s highest villages, Tolar Grande, with an elevation of 11,500 feet. Surrounding it are some of the tallest peaks in the Andes, many soaring well over 20,000 feet high. We stayed in the village for a few ...

Beautiful images from Madagascar

In December , my family and I took a trip across northern Madagascar, the world’s second-largest island country after Indonesia and home to diverse animal species found nowhere else on the planet. The country is made up of the main island of Madagascar, the world’s fourth-largest island, and several smaller islands. We started on the island of Nosy Be, off the coast of the main island, and ended at the main island’s northern port city of Antsiranana, visiting three national parks along the w...

Ask anyone to name a female pioneer who studied wild species in their natural habitat in Africa and you’ll get Jane Goodall. But in 1956, four years before primatologist Goodall’s rightfully celebrated work with the chimpanzees started, there was the 23-year-old Canadian Dr. Anne Innis Dagg and her research of giraffes. Despite being the first […]

Nobelist Robert Shiller’s New Approach to Economics: The “Economic Narrative.”

My graduate research early in the 1980s was focused on narratives. By that time education had begun to realize that teaching just facts or principles without embedding them in stories was a poor way of teaching. The primary reason for that wasn’t fully understood until neuroscience got in the business of figuring out how memory and understanding work. The result of a lot of research was that memory is based on stories that we put into our gray matter, not on principles or facts. Sounds dumbly ob...

The Reality Bubble: how humanity's collective blindspots render us incapable of seeing danger until it's too late (and what to do about it)

Ziya Tong is a veteran science reporter who spent years hosting Discovery's flagship science program, Daily Planet: it's the sort of job that gives you a very broad, interdisciplinary view of the sciences, and it shows in her debut book, The Reality Bubble: Blind Spots, Hidden Truths, and the Dangerous Illusions that Shape Our World, a tour of ten ways in which our senses, our society, and our political system leads us to systematically misunderstand the world, to our deadly detriment.

What’s It Really Like to Travel Guyana?

When I knew I was traveling to Guyana, I had no idea what to expect. Even for the girl who grew up constantly reading about other countries, I knew very little about Guyana and never really had a desire to visit. Then in November, I received an opportunity to visit Guyana on one of the Guyana Tourism Authority’s very first press trips. At the time, I was in Kenya on another press trip. One of the writers with me was Guyanese-American, and I excitedly told her I got invited to her home country. ...

Human encroachment is obliterating chimpanzee culture

A study finds that human impact is decimating the cultures of chimpanzee communities in the wild. Unique localized behaviors are being reduced by 88 percent. Socialized learning in chimps has finally been established, just in time to be destroyed.

Best spring break trips in the US

You don’t have to do five-story beer bongs off a beachfront balcony to have a great spring break. Though let’s be honest, it’s a better story if you do. The annual respite from school and work that runs from the beginning of March to mid-April is one of the great American traditions, where college kids create memories they won’t remember, and families finally have time for some peace and quiet. Even if you can’t afford a week of debauchery in Mexico or a family jaunt to Europe, each state has...

100-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor Helen Fagin Reads Her Letter About How Books Save Lives

"Could you imagine a world without access to reading, to learning, to books?" Helen Fagin, who poses that question, doesn't have to imagine it: she experienced that grim reality, and worse besides. "At twenty-one," she continues, "I was forced into Poland’s World War II ghetto, where being caught reading anything forbidden by the Nazis meant, at best, hard labor; at worst, death." There she operated a school in secret where she taught Jewish children Latin and mathematics, soon realizing th...
