A vital reminder from the fourth episode of Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos series.
Perhaps Bertrand Russell put it best in his 10 commandments of learning, where he admonished:

Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.

 
Pair with Carl Sagan’s toolkit for critical thinking.

So worth repeating.

    The idea that you could tell a story in 30 seconds is astounding. I don’t know why they don’t get more props, people in advertising. Done well, a good television commercial is a story, right? But 30 seconds is insane. Making someone laugh is really easy. Making people cry is really hard. And as a society, we venerate people who can make us laugh, but we’re sort of indifferent to those who can make us cry – which is crazy…

    Malcolm Gladwell in conversation with Paul Holdengraber at The New York Public Library. Pair with Gladwell on brands.

    Props to #ad people and story telling.

    Client: Can you make it wider?

    Me: We can’t make it wider without making the text column next to it narrower.

    Client: Not side to side wider, up and down wider.

    Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

    Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

    Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

    Wow

She had knocked on several doors seeking help after the accident. #blacklivesmatter#justice4renisha #blackwomenmatter
