The Self-Domestication of Humans

In an essay adapted from his forthcoming book, The Goodness Paradox: The Strange Relationship Between Virtue and Violence in Human Evolution, anthropologist Richard Wrangham says that before humans domesticated dogs, cows, and pigs, we domesticated ourselves. No other mammal has the brainpower to organize capital punishment. When language became sufficiently sophisticated, our ancestors’ ability to conspire led not only to a more peaceful species but also to a new kind of hierarchy. No longer w...

7 Tattoo Trends You're About To See Everywhere In 2019

Long before Dr. Woo, JonBoy, and their A-list clientele made dainty white dots and tiny crosses mainstream news, tattoos were already deeply ingrained in the fabric of history, discovered on the bodies of Egyptian mummies and an Austrian-Italian iceman now known as Ötzi. In those times, thousands of years ago, tattooing was thought to be used therapeutically, a kind of early form of acupuncture; today, it's much more popular for creating decorative body art.Still, Ötzi and his pre-Common Era co...

The future is bright for Jack Leach, England’s rising cult hero

Just two years ago, Leach was overlooked by England when an opening was on the offing in India, mainly as a result of concerns about the legality of his action. Leach has overcome adversity at every turn but, at the age of 27, will head out to the West Indies in the New Year as England’s first-choice second spinner – and not too far off topping the bill. The Taunton-born left-armer would baulk at the suggestion that he could oust Moeen Ali as England’s number one by the time next summer’s Ashes ...

Why Jack Leach is not ‘better’ than Adil Rashid

Photo by Sarah Ansell We reckon this article will take you somewhere around six minutes to read. Only you can decide whether you trust us to justify that gargantuan investment of your valuable time. (You might also feel moved to make an angry comment afterwards, so maybe factor that time in too). We’d argue that what might at first look like an overlong examination of a very specific selection dilemma actually leads to far more interesting, broader questions about how teams are selected an...

UCLA football mailbag: How does 2018 set the Bruins up for the future?

The first year of Chip Kelly is done at UCLA. The Bruins have only three wins to show for it. The 3-9 record sounds disappointing after so much preseason hype with Kelly’s hire, but players remained optimistic after last Saturday’s season-ending loss to Stanford. Now begins the long nine-month wait to see if that optimism will be rewarded with better results next year. Thanks for all your questions for this year’s mailbags. For the last time in 2018, let’s get to the A’s to your Q’s: DM question...

England seal historic series whitewash in Sri Lanka, winning final Test by 42 runs

England have sealed a historic series whitewash in Sri Lanka, winning the final Test by 42 runs despite a late scare as the hosts' tail wagged. Suranga Lakmal and Malinda Pushpakumara put up 58 for the final partnership and had England worrying but Jack Leach, securing his fourth wicket of the innings, trapped the Sri Lankan skipper Lakmal in front to spark wild celebrations. The spin duo of Moeen Ali (4/92) and Leach (4/72) shared eight wickets between them to ensure England became just th...

UCLA football mailbag: What has to happen for the Bruins to become playoff contenders?

In three weeks, UCLA went from one of the last winless FBS teams in the country to unexpected contenders in a crowded Pac-12 South race to the brink of its third straight losing season. It’s been a roller coaster season and there’s still a month left. Just one more loss in their last four games guarantees that the Bruins will be staying home for December, losing bowl eligibility and the accompanying 15 practices that could be beneficial for the young team. The tight rope walk starts Saturday in ...

Why losing the will to live can be deadly within three weeks

Losing the will to live is deadly, scientists believe, after finding people can die within three weeks simply because they have given up on life. A new review by Dr John Leach at the University of Portsmouth, is the first to widely study the condition known as ‘psychogenic death’ and define its five stages. Sometimes termed ‘give-up-itis’ it usually follows an emotional shock from which a person thinks there is no mental escape, which makes them dangerously apathetic about their own existence. I...

USC faces Washington State in hopes of ending struggles

USC sits in a precarious position. In the aftermath of consecutive blowout losses at Stanford and Texas, the Trojans have started the season 1-2 for only the second time since 2001. Recent seasons in 2016 and 2015 offer templates for in-season turnarounds under Coach Clay Helton, but the Trojans have displayed few signs that one is imminent in the early weeks and with a visit Friday night awaiting from Washington State, which upset them last season. Through three games, the Trojans rank near the...

Broad Street Bullies: More Than Goons, Fists & Enforcers

During the 1970s, only the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins had more victories than the Philadelphia Flyers’ 424. During that decade, the Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1974 and 1975, went to two more Finals, and missed the playoffs once. Furthermore, they registered 100 or more points in five consecutive seasons between 1974 and 1978. The Flyers of that era are often overlooked by the Bobby Orr-led Bruins and the Guy Lafleur-led Canadiens because the Flyers lacked the elite offensi...
