Nina DiSesa: Are bloggers dangerous?

Nina DiSesa: Well I think that anybody who puts an opinion out there that is damaging anonymous way, I think people who are blogging, there are really good bloggers out there who are performing valuable services in there, its fun to have a really good blog on your computer into at engage in that. But I think the once that are the damaging ones are the ones that are very mean spirited wishes and anonymous. People don’t want to put their name on these horrible things that they write, they shouldn’t be allowed to do that. I have seen blogs where if you don’t have your name on it they won’t print your answer. And I think those are …. I think I respect those blogs and the people who run those blogs are have a great deal of integrity. If you don’t have the courage to put your name on your comment, then you shouldn’t have a platform to be so destructive and that’s what I find objection, not just in business, but the blogs that attack children that’s just children don’t have the thick skin that we have in advertising we use the people not liking what we do. I mean even creative people have this someone things and otherwise we put and get up and go to work every morning it’s the kids I worry about, because they don’t have that thick skin, and these wishes attacks on them is totally uncalled for and should be out lawed because I am going. So I know we get do that is not legal to do that but I wish we could.

Scientists reactivate cells from 28,000-year-old woolly mammoth

"I was so moved when I saw the cells stir," said 90-year-old study co-author Akira Iritani. "I'd been hoping for this for 20 years."

Yamagata et al.
Surprising Science
  • The team managed to stimulate nucleus-like structures to perform some biological processes, but not cell division.
  • Unless better technology and DNA samples emerge in the future, it's unlikely that scientists will be able to clone a woolly mammoth.
  • Still, studying the DNA of woolly mammoths provides valuable insights into the genetic adaptations that allowed them to survive in unique environments.

Sex & Relationships
  • Ghosting, or the practice of cutting off all contact suddenly with a romantic partner, is a controversial method of dumping someone.
  • People generally agree that it's bad form, but new research shows that people have surprisingly different opinions on the practice.
  • Overall, people who are more destiny-oriented (more likely to believe that they have a soulmate) tend to approve of ghosting more, while people who are more growth-oriented (more likely to believe relationships are made rather than born) are less tolerant of ghosting.
