Yet, it must be difficult to see your minority views reflect a more worldly view of public opinion. As I reflect on my views as a Texan on the death penalty (definitely against), I wonder why we want to be counted with the terrorist states of the world as the only places this penalty continues to exist.
Thank you for being part of this discussion.
New research links urban planning and political polarization.

- Decades of car-centric urban planning normalized unsustainable lifestyles.
- People who prefer personal comfort elect politicians who represent such views.
It turns out the human scalp has an olfactory receptor that seems to play a crucial role in regulating hair follicle growth and death.
- Scientists treated scalp tissue with a chemical that mimics the odor of sandalwood.
- This chemical bound to an olfactory receptor in the scalp and stimulated hair growth.
- The treatment could soon be available to the public.
- 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
