  • Giant Viruses and the Tree of Life
    When the first giant virus, the mimivirus, was discovered in 1992, it was misidentified as a bacterium because it was too large to have been a virus by the current understanding. Ever since, biologists have been debating how viruses should be categorized and described. Are they living? Are they something else? What is their place […]
  • Metallic Hydrogen
    For over eighty years, scientists have been trying to produce lab-made metallic hydrogen, the holy grail of alternative fuels. In that process, diamond anvils must withstand pressures greater than those at the center of the earth—no mean feat. Recent research may have finally achieved hydrogen’s metallic state. All that remains is for another lab to […]
  • Expertise Unheeded
    In responding to pandemics, members from the middle levels of the US government have tried, usually futilely, to get the political appointees above them to do the right thing, or merely to pay attention. In The Premonition: A Pandemic Story, Michael Lewis describes official responses to pandemic crises in the US from 1918 to the […]
  • On Science and Civilisation in China
    When the first volume of Science and Civilisation in China was published in 1954, Chinese scientific and technological accomplishments were largely unknown in the West, even among scientists. The initiator of the series, the British biochemist Joseph Needham, subsequently became one of the most important conduits between Chinese science and the international community.

    “Təxmini 70-ci illərdə insanlıq başa düşüb ki, kütləvi turizm təbiət üçün məhvedicidir və təbiətin resursları tükənməz deyil, onlar nə vaxtsa tükənəcək.

    “Onlar çalışırdılar ki, bu tamaşaları çox sakitliklə izləsinlər. Amma incəsənət elə bir şeydir ki, insanın ruhunu riqqətə gətirir və bəzən elə olurdu ki, sakitlik və nəzarətə baxmayaraq, insanlar həyəcanlanaraq əl çalırdılar və barakdan alqış səsləri ucalırdı.” Növbəti videomuzda Ritual Mobil Teatr Laboratoriyasının təsisçisi Aynur Zərrintac konslager və gettolarda teatrlar haqqında danışıb.

    “Vətəndaş cəmiyyəti quruculuğu prosesinin kökündə dayanan ideya odur ki, hökumətin nəzarətindən və bazar münasibətlərindən kənarda yaranan vətəndaş birlikləri könüllü formada yaranır və özlərini idarə edirlər. Bu birliklər öz maraq və narahatlıqlarını dövlət-vətəndaş münasibətləri çərçivəsində ifadə edirlər.” Əkinçinin növbəti qonağı, tədqiqatçı Nəcmin Kamilsoyla demokratik geriləmə və vətəndaş cəmiyyəti haqqında söhbət etmişik.

  • The Feminist Vision of Friedrich Engels
    The son of wealthy textile manufacturers, Friedrich Engels enjoyed the good life that fortune afforded him, shared his wealth (including, famously, to support Karl Marx’s writing), and (mostly) rebelled against the bourgeois values which he was expected to embody. Scandalously for a man of his background, he had a long-term relationship with an Irish, working-class […]
  • For Short-Staffed Employers, Prison Labor Is a Get-Out-of-Jail-Free Card
    Headlines are full of dire warnings about labor shortages. “Where is the labor?” asks USA Today. Employers are “begging” for workers, the Washington Post reports. Labor shortages could “jeopardize essential services” and undermine Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan. By some accounts, “worker shortages could cancel Christmas.” Yet, according to Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist David Autor, […]
