Jo Nesbo's Headhunters Opens in U.S. Theaters April 27

Over the past year, I've read about a half dozen of Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo's novels. If you are heading on vacation this summer, I recommend you pick a few up at the bookstore. Now the first of his books appears in U.S. theaters with the April 27 release of the Danish film Headhunters, based on the novel by the same name.


Below is the trailer followed by theaters showing the film in the States.

    Four philosophers who realized they were completely wrong about things

    Philosophers like to present their works as if everything before it was wrong. Sometimes, they even say they have ended the need for more philosophy. So, what happens when somebody realizes they were mistaken?

    Culture & Religion

    Sometimes philosophers are wrong and admitting that you could be wrong is a big part of being a real philosopher. While most philosophers make minor adjustments to their arguments to correct for mistakes, others make large shifts in their thinking. Here, we have four philosophers who went back on what they said earlier in often radical ways.

    Just before I turned 60, I discovered that sharing my story by drawing could be an effective way to both alleviate my symptoms and combat that stigma.

    I've lived much of my life with anxiety and depression, including the negative feelings – shame and self-doubt – that seduced me into believing the stigma around mental illness: that people knew I wasn't good enough; that they would avoid me because I was different or unstable; and that I had to find a way to make them like me.

    Sexual activity linked to higher cognitive function in older age

    A joint study by two England universities explores the link between sex and cognitive function with some surprising differences in male and female outcomes in old age.

    • A joint study by the universities of Coventry and Oxford in England has linked sexual activity with higher cognitive abilities in older age.
    • The results of this study suggest there are significant associations between sexual activity and number sequencing/word recall in men. In women, however, there was a significant association between sexual activity in word recall alone - number sequencing was not impacted.
    • The differences in testosterone (the male sex hormone) and oxytocin (a predominantly female hormone) may factor into why the male cognitive level changes much more during sexual activity in older age.
