Big Think Launches 10 Under 25
Know an exceptional young talent under the age of 25? Think they would be a good candidate for the web's most engaging global thought forum? Big Think is launching a new series called 10 Under 25 this Friday and we are soliciting nominations from the Big Think community.
Or maybe one of those exceptional candidates is you.
Either way, create an argument for why you or they should be one of Big Think's 10 Under 25. Tape it via webcam and upload it to a Big Think expert page designated for that young expert. The most exceptional among them will be invited to the Big Think studio for an interview this spring.
High schools, colleges, and students themselves are encouraged to submit their nominations for immediate consideration. Please also include a young achiever's profile complete with a summary of their accomplishments and contact information to Zachary at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because at Big Think, youth is never wasted on the young.
New research links urban planning and political polarization.
- Canadian researchers find that excessive reliance on cars changes political views.
- Decades of car-centric urban planning normalized unsustainable lifestyles.
- People who prefer personal comfort elect politicians who represent such views.
Progressive America would be half as big, but twice as populated as its conservative twin.
- America's two political tribes have consolidated into 'red' and 'blue' nations, with seemingly irreconcilable differences.
- Perhaps the best way to stop the infighting is to go for a divorce and give the two nations a country each
- Based on the UN's partition plan for Israel/Palestine, this proposal provides territorial contiguity and sea access to both 'red' and 'blue' America
Science and the squishiness of the human mind. The joys of wearing whatever the hell you want, and so much more.
- Why can't we have a human-sized cat tree?
- What would happen if you got a spoonful of a neutron star?
- Why do we insist on dividing our wonderfully complex selves into boring little boxes
