The NYT ethicist — Kwame Anthony Appiah — comes out in favor of cultural appropriation.

begins with a letter from an art therapist who had hospital patients go on "a guided mindfulness journey to find their spirit animals." This involved teaching them about Native American cultures and having them draw "their animals" on a totem pole. One patient questioned the activity and used the criticism "cultural appropriation." I think it's an awful exercise, for many reasons. I don't know what has to happen to you to make you a patient on the receiving end of such "therapy," but if I'd be...

What is static electricity? We may finally have an answer

This article was originally published by our sister site, Freethink.Somewhere on Northwestern's campus may be the answer to a 2600-year-old mystery: exactly where static electricity comes from. Every known material creates it, and it is often disproportionately powerful compared to the amount of energy it takes to create. Yet, amazingly, this everyday electrical phenomenon had no widely accepted scientific explanation — perhaps, until now.The solution, hidden in a dense thicket of math, was crea...

New Carnivorous Plant Discovered In Pacific Northwest

A pretty little white flower that grows near urban centers of the Pacific Northwest turns out to be a killer.

In the wake of the success of his stage version of In the Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda started writing songs for Vivo, a movie he pitched to Sony Pictures Animation in 2010.
