    Shankar Vedantam: The Hidden Brain


    Washington Post columnist Shankar Vedantam discusses his book The Hidden Brain: How Our Unconscious Minds Elect Presidents, Control Markets, Wage Wars, and Save Our Lives. The hidden brain is Vedantam's shorthand for a host of brain functions, emotional responses, and cognitive processes that happen outside of our conscious awareness, but that have a decisive effect on how we behave. This lecture was presented by the Harvard Book Store and recorded on 2/9/10. View more lectures at:

    Blinded Me with Science: Podcasts for the Science Geeks in Us All | Murphy Research


    Recently we have shared ( a few of our favorite podcasts to help you become a better researcher, and for those of us who are naturally curious. As I’ve mentioned before, there truly are podcasts on any topic you imagine (there is a podcast dedicated to dissecting every episode of the TV show Cheers).

    One thing I’ve found to be true throughout my career in market research – many of us who choose this field are psychology and science geeks by nature. Our work truly is a combination of art and science, and if you need a little scientific stimulation, there are a few podcasts that are very laymen-friendly, to help you think about the world around you a little bit differently.


    It’s difficult to describe “Radiolab” – it’s a mixture of science, human stories, and superb sound-engineering and music. Each episode revolves around a theme – some are harder science than others, but the hosts find a way to make it accessible and captivating, regardless of the topic.


    NPR’s “Invisibilia” (Latin for “all the invisible things”) is about the invisible forces that control human behavior, including beliefs, ideas, and emotions. Episodes intermingle scientific research with stories from real people, in a well-produced and entertaining way. Like “Radiolab”, it’s episodic, so you can dip in and out as the topics suit you.

    Hidden Brain

    The newest of NPR’s blockbuster podcasts, “Hidden Brain” feels like a partner podcast to Blinded Me with Science: Podcasts for the Science Geeks in Us All-NPR's Hidden Brain podcast“Invisibilia”. If “Invisibilia” helps to explain the invisible forces, “Hidden Brain” helps explain the world around us, using neuroscience. Some of the questions they tackle include how gender plays a role in poker, why we get sweaty when we’re afraid, and other things you never thought you’d learn about!

    These are a few of our favorite scientific podcasts. Are there any podcasts that make you want to get out your high school chem set?

    Meine 10 Lieblingspodcasts


    Podcasts sind vermutlich eine Erfindung Gottes. Eine dreisekündige Recherche auf Google hat auch nichts anderes Ergeben, also können wir das vermutlich als gegeben hinnehmen.

    Ich höre so 30 verschiedene Podcasts und habe mir mal die Mühe gemacht, weil ihr meine Lieblingszuschauer seid, meine Top 10 in Videoform an euch heranzutragen.

    Auch hier ist jede Folge interessant. Selbst, wenn man denkt, dass das Thema langweilig ist, schaffen sie es daraus etwas großartiges zu machen.

    3. This American Life -

    Hier könnte ich echt jede einzelne Folge empfehlen. Nehmt einfach eine, die euch gefällt und hört sie ganz an. Es wird euer Leben bereichern.

    1. Radiolab -

    Colors (Die Mantis Shrimps Episode)

    Our world is saturated in color, from soft hues to violent stains. How does something so intangible pack such a visceral punch? This hour, in the name of science and poetry, Jad and Robert tear the rainbow to pieces.



    Chimps. Bonobos. Humans. We're all great apes, but that doesn’t mean we’re one happy family. This hour of Radiolab: stories of trying to live together.

    Is this kind of cross-species co-habitation an utterly stupid idea? Or might it be our one last hope as more and more humans fill up the planet? A chimp named Lucy teaches us the ups and downs of growing up human, and a visit to The Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa highlights some of the basics of bonobo culture (be careful, they bite).

    Ancient Astronauts Theory Anunnaki Nephilim Ancient Aliens Hidden Secrets Full Documentary


    Ancient astronauts proponents suggest that aliens came to Earth and profoundly affected the development of human civilization by manipulating the DNA of prehistoric hominids, citing evidence as found in this ancient Mesopotamian cylinder seal as proof of advanced technological influences

    Proponents of the ancient astronaut hypotheses often maintain that humans are either descendants or creations of extraterrestrial beings who landed on Earth thousands of years ago. An associated idea is that much of human knowledge, religion, and culture came from extraterrestrial visitors in ancient times, in that ancient astronauts acted as a mother culture. Ancient astronaut proponents also believe that travelers from outer space, referred to as astronauts (or spacemen) built many of the structures on Earth (such as Egyptian pyramids and the Moai stone heads of Easter Island) or aided humans in building them.[6][7]
    Ancient astronauts hypothesis of creation

    Proponents argue that the evidence for ancient astronauts comes from documentary gaps in historical and archaeological records, and they also maintain that absent or incomplete explanations of historical or archaeological data point to the existence of ancient astronauts. The evidence is argued to include archaeological artifacts that they deem anachronistic, or beyond the accepted technical capabilities of the historical cultures with which they are associated. These are sometimes referred to as out-of-place artifacts; and include artwork and legends which are interpreted in a modern sense as depicting extraterrestrial contact or technologies.

    Legitimate academics have responded that gaps in contemporary knowledge of the past need not demonstrate that such speculative ancient astronaut ideas are a necessary conclusion to draw.[8]

    Thomas Gold, a professor of astronomy, suggested a garbage theory for the origin of life, proposing that life on Earth might have spread from a pile of waste products accidentally dumped on Earth long ago by extraterrestrials.[9]
    Artist rendering of the suspect FOXP2 protein
    The genetic argument

    Ancient astronaut creation theorists believe that language is a gift from the gods. Hypothesis proponents argue that the Forkhead box protein P2 (FOXP2) gene, which research shows to be linked with language,[10] is of extraterrestrial origin. The hypothesis contends extraterrestrials are responsible for giving mankind the ability to communicate, use tools, manipulate fire, socially organize and interact symbolically with one another. The ancient astronaut creation hypothesis further argues the possibility that all life on Earth is of extraterrestrial origin.
    Genetic research and brain evolution

    In 2004, researchers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, at the University of Chicago, Illinois, conducted a study and found human genes that control the size and complexity of the brain have undergone rapid evolution in humans, and that mammals and other non-human primates had not evolved in this manner.[11] Ancient astronaut creation theorists believe that this evolution is the result of extraterrestrial beings manipulating the DNA of early hominids as well as natural selection.
    Hypothesis origins and proponents
    A physiologically manipulated Nazca skull (housed at the Museo Regional de Ica in Peru). AAC theorists claim the culturally-based practice came about in as a societal attempt to emulate the bone structure of ancient alien visitors to earth.

    Paleocontact or ancient astronaut narratives first appeared in the early science fiction of the late 19th to early 20th century. The idea was proposed in earnest by Harold T. Wilkins in 1954; it received some consideration as a serious hypothesis during the 1960s; and has been mostly confined to the field of pseudoscience and pop culture since the 1970s. Ancient astronauts appear as a feature of UFO religions (beginning in 1967), with the Scientologist 'Scripture, and followed by Raelism (1974), and others.[citation needed]
    Alfred Russel Wallace
    This section contains information of unclear or questionable importance or relevance to the article's subject matter. Please help improve this article by clarifying or removing superfluous information.

    The AAC hypothesis challenges Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection. Proponents of the hypothesis cite the research and theory developed by one of Darwin's contemporaries, Alfred Russel Wallace, as at least partial basis for their beliefs. According to the ancient astronaut theorist, Craig Stanford, the theory of evolution by natural selection is inaccurate because Darwin had no means to gain a clear understanding of the amount of time that had passed since early hominids had started to walk upright, began the use of tools, and developed language.

    Wallace believed that an unseen creative spirit had interceded three times on planet Earth. First, to create life from inorganic matter; second, to create conscio

    Uber Knows When Customers Will Pay Highest Surge Prices


    Uber has the technology to see inside your smartphone, including how long until your battery dies. They’ve realized people are much more likely to accept surge prices when their charge is low. Cenk Uygur, Jimmy Dore, and Brett Erlich (Pop Trigger), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

    “...And, not surprisingly, the company has figured out exactly when you are more likely to pay double or triple the cost of your ride: when your phone battery is low.

    Uber’s head of economic research, Keith Chen, recently told NPR’s Shankar Vedantam on an episode of The Hidden Brain podcast that people are willing to accept up to 9.9 times surge pricing (ouch) if their phones are about to go dead. Data about user batteries is collected because the app uses that information to know when to switch into low-power mode. The idea being: If you really need to get where you’re going, you’ll pay just about anything (or at least 9.9 times anything) to ensure you’re getting a ride home and won’t be stranded. A person with a more fully charged device has time to wait and see if the surge pricing goes down.

    Chen called it an “interesting kind of psychological fact of human behavior,” and promised that the company is not using that data to gouge riders.”*

Her work assists people and organizations in uncovering their purpose and action plan, understanding and easing transitions, alleviating burnout, and finding accurate answers to pressing questions.

    We all know that cigarettes are bad for us but what we may not know is that one of the more addicting ingredients in those little death sticks is naturally produced by the plant itself.

    “Solanaceae, the nightshade, or potato, family of flowering plants (order Solanales), with 102 genera and nearly 2,500 species, many of considerable economic importance as food and drug plants.

    The Dope On Nicotine:

    “If it weren't for nicotine, people wouldn't smoke tobacco. Why? Because of the more than 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, nicotine is the primary one that acts on the brain, altering people's moods, appetites, and alertness in ways they find pleasant and beneficial.

    The Nicotine Content of Common Vegetables:

    “The presence of nicotine and its metabolite cotinine in the body fluids of nonsmokers is usually taken as evidence of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke.

    How Nicotine Works:

    “You may have discovered the effects of nicotine in your teen years -- as many as 85 percent of adult American smokers admit they got hooked when they were under 21 -- but tobacco has a more substantial history than sneaking a smoke after school.

    Toxic Halitosis Protects Tobacco-Eating Caterpillar:

    “Way before people started inhaling nicotine in cigarette smoke, plants were using the chemical to defend themselves from animals. Nicotine is a poison, and an exceptionally deadly one.

    Addiction To Nicotine:

    “Addiction to tobacco kills one person prematurely every six seconds. One in two long-term smokers—largely in low- and middle-income countries —will die from
    tobacco addiction.

    5 Health Benefits Of Smoking:

    “Who says smoking cigarettes is so bad ... well, aside from the World Health Organization, Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and every medical board and association on the face of the Earth?

    Hidden Benefits Of Nicotine on The Brain:

    “When most people think of nicotine, they think of smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products. Since tobacco products are linked to various types of cancer (e.g. lung cancer from smoking), many people assume that nicotine is inherently evil.
