The invasion of America

The story of Native American dispossession is too easily swept aside, but new visualisations should make it unforgettable…

Between 1776 and 1887, the United States seized over 1.5 billion acres from America’s indigenous people by treaty and executive order. The Invasion of America shows how by mapping every treaty and executive order during that period. It concludes with a map of present-day federal Indian reservations.

Why We Look for Aliens That Look Like Us

One of the most common criticisms about the search for life is that scientists spend too much time looking for Earth-like life. Why is that the case? Doesn’t this kind of narrow focus simply limit us from actually finding anything?

Two researchers spent Monday tackling that question during “Searching for Life Across Space and Time,” the first of a two-day workshop about aliens hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

You may want to keep some grass on the field.

If you like things down below as smooth as a baby’s bottom, you may want to rethink things. A new study done at the University of California—San Franciscoreports that people who regularly groom their pubic hair are 75% more likely to develop a sexually transmitted infection than non-groomers. As reported earlier this year, STIs are on the rise.

The survey, reported in the journal “Sexually Transmitted Infections,” included U.S. residents 18-65, asking their grooming habits, sexual behaviors, and STI history.

One of the reasons for the corellation between STIs and shaving? The act of shaving may create “epidermal microtears” that might allow transmission of bacteria or viruses like HPV.

Chimps Recognize Butts the Way Humans Recognize Faces

Recognizing a fellow human’s face is about more than just identifying a nose or mouth. It’s believed we use something called configural recognition to process the entire facial structure altogether, which is why there’s often a little bit of a lag time when we see a face upside-down (humans have an easier time recognizing other objects, like cars or houses, that have been flipped).

Researchers now believe chimpanzees have something similar to configural recognition. Only they use it to recognize each other’s butts.

What have you got to lose, Trump asks.

It is wonderful to watch the reptile-quick post-election pivot from White Privilege and Identity to White Nationalism and Supremacy.

At a Harvard University conference last week, sour-grapes Democratic campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri charged that white nationalism and supremacy — she used the words interchangeably — were foundational to Donald Trump’s election victory.

These anti-white politics, lowdown and incendiary, are at the center of a concerted semantic campaign. They have nothing to do with good governance or reality. The goal is to render the new administration radioactive and off-limits before inauguration. It’s the politics of destruction, intended to incite blacks, women, gays, and immigrants to ill will.

The White Privilege meme got traction from Black Lives Matter-inspired demonstrations on campuses last year. White America stood accused of unearned social benefits that it takes for granted. Days before the election, in “Behind 2016’s Turmoil, a Crisis of White Identity,” the New York Times’s Amanda Taub proposed declining white status as the root of nationalist political movements worldwide.
