What Happens When Grandparents Help Raise Children

About 1 billion people in the world today are grandparents. Because humans are living longer, we are spending more time in the grandparenting role compared to past generations. What’s more, people are having fewer children overall, which means that grandparents can dedicate more distinct time to each grandchild. Grandparents have been universally important in families across time and their role continues to evolve, but their involvement in their grandchildren’s lives is different around the wor...

A study shows why you shouldn't just rely on Google Maps or Yelp for restaurant reviews

You can update the address of your business on Google Maps by using the free Google My Business tool. AngieYeoh/Shutterstock Academic analysis of restaurant reviews shows public reviews aren't the objective truth they claim to be. Reviews submitted on Google for the same restaurant in the same area average 0.7 stars more than on Yelp. "The five-star rating scale is a false simplicity," said Brent Hecht, one of the authors of the paper. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Be...

How China’s Realme sold 50 million phones in just over 2 years

Starting a new phone brand in 2018 might seem too late in an already crowded market, but Sky Li was convinced that consumers between 18-25 years old were largely under-served — they needed something that was both affordable and cool. A few months after Li founded Realme in May that year, the smartphone company organized a product launch at a college campus in India, the world’s second-largest smartphone market. It brought its own production crew, built a makeshift stage and invited local rappers...

What Is, What Could Be, and The Art of Yearning For What Never Was

Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne,  I enjoyed you letter dated October 17th, but I’m left again wondering how the hell did another whole month go by? You might not know this about me, but I’m the kind of guy who’s always looking for a silver lining. For instance, I had high hopes for my Stewartia, but when it died I told myself, “Well, now at least there’s room for a Disanthus.” Per usual, replacing an impossible plant with one that’s even worse. Blinders. I wear them as well as anybody. When the p...

5 Points About Democrats’ Bad (But Not 2011-Level Bad) Position Going Into Redistricting

Heading into last week’s election, Democrats had poured considerable resources into avoiding the Republican sweep that happened a decade ago, in the 2010 midterms, and that allowed GOP lawmakers in several states to draw legislative maps with extreme tilts to their advantage. But Tuesday was a rough night for down-ballot Democrats, even as it gave Joe Biden the presidency. And it blunted much of the momentum that they and nonpartisan redistricting reformers had achieved in the 2018 and 2019 e...

Despite global headwinds, Chinese hardware startups remain to take on the world

Bill Zhang lowered himself into lunges on a squishy mat as he explained to me the benefits of the full-body training suit he was wearing. We were in his small, modest office in Xili, a university area in Shenzhen that’s also home to many hardware makers. The connected muscle stimulator attached to the suit, called Balanx, is designed to bring so-called electronic muscle stimulation, which is said to help improve metabolism and burn fat. “We are not really aiming at Chinese consumers at this p...

The "Little Pimp" gaffe.

Lil Pump takes the stage at the Trump rally shortly after 1amET on Election Day. Trump introduces him as "Little Pimp"— Brandon Wall (@Walldo) November 3, 2020 To be fair to Trump, there is a movie "Li'l Pimp." It looks truly atrocious, but maybe Trump has watched it: As for Lil Pump himself, I had never heard of him, but I read his Wikipedia page and watched the video he made with Kanye West, "I Love It," which I won't embed here because the lyrics include the n-...

Brain study finds that humans are born wired for reading letters and words

There's an area of the brain specializing in the recognition of letters and words.Neuroscientists wonder how this faculty develops since it would not be a trait associated with survival.fMRI scans reveal that this region is already connected to the brain's language centers in newborns. It's been over a century since scientists identified an area of the brain that serves as its "letterbox." The "visual word form area," or VWFA, recognizes letter and word shapes before sending them on to the brai...

A Scientific Portrait of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus

This is a great piece from Carl Zimmer about how much scientists have learned about SARS-CoV-2 through imaging, including how the virus works and prospects for treatment and a vaccine. Thanks to the work of scientists like Dr. Li, the new coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2, is no longer a cipher. They have come to know it in intimate, atomic detail. They’ve discovered how it uses some of its proteins to slip into cells and how its intimately twisted genes commandeer our biochemistry. They’ve ob...
