Your mind is like an attic. Only store things there you'll actually use.

"I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose," Sherlock Holmes famously remarked. In this lesson, Maria Konnikova, author of Mastermind: How to think like Sherlock Holmes, teaches you how to optimize memory, Holmes style. The goal is to expand one's limited "brain attic," so that what used to be a small space can suddenly become much larger because we are using the space more efficiently. Learn more with a subs...

'Epidemic' of Class-C arrests poo-pooed in 2001 by SCOTUS now documented by new Appleseed report, racial-profiling data

"Data, data, data, I cannot make bricks without clay." - Sherlock Holmes One of the frustrating aspects of debating the issue of Class C misdemeanors in Texas has been a general lack of information about how often people are arrested for these low-level infractions. When legislation to limit such arrests was heard in 2017, law enforcement claimed Class-C arrests almost never happened and were nothing to worry about. "Move along," we were told, "nothing to see here."Except that was patently false...

Exclusive ‘Holmes and Waston’ Clip Presents Bloopers From the Golden Razzie Award-Winning Film

Remember Holmes and Watson? There’s a good chance you don’t – the film didn’t screen for critics last year, and the critics who went and saw it on their own weren’t kind.

Farewell To The Resistance?

Anyone can be startled by a yelping dog. The true detective, as Sherlock Holmes taught us, is the one who notices dogs that don’t bark and asks why they remained silent. Over at Vox, Matthew Yglesias points out that the Resistance, the guard dog whose vigilance played such a crucial role as a check against Donald Trump, has gone quiet since the Democrats won the House in the 2018 midterms. “The resistance has demobilized,” Yglesias notes. “There was no mass mobilization to call senators in ad...

Portsmouth History: Taking Advantage of It as a Traveler

Whenever tourism is spoken about in the UK, particularly from overseas visitors, few would disagree that London is the first name that comes to mind. In fact, scrap that, it’s usually the only name. This perhaps does a disservice to the rest of the country. As today’s title might have already given away, we’re now going to talk about Portsmouth and how this can be more than a viable alternative to the UK capital. Portsmouth isn’t just great for the hotels, which are of much better value than Lon...
