Putin Reveals What Future Technology Will Be ‘More Terrible Than a Nuclear Bomb’

“One can almost imagine that people will be able to create human beings with specific characteristics. This can be a brilliant mathematician, or a brilliant musician, but it can also be a soldier – a human being capable of fighting without fear, without compassion, without regret, or even pain,” Putin said.

‘Human power plant’: How the cell’s molecular machines work

Every cell in our body is like a workshop full of machines. The machines are embedded in mitochondrial membranes – microscopic energy centers. They serve to synthesize ATP (adenosine triphosphate) – sort of a fuel for humans that our whole body uses in order to function properly.

Petition · We’re calling on Governor Brown to sign Californian rape survivor civil rights, AB1312, into law

California is close to passing a Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights that will guarantee comprehensive, common sense civil rights for survivors like me.

In March of 2015, I was sexually assaulted by a man I was dating. When I tried to stop his unprotected advances, he forced himself on me.

It’s hard to put into words exactly what one goes through after such a trauma. I think the best way to describe my experience is something akin to being on a roller coaster during an earthquake in the midst of a storm.

New African literature is disrupting what Western presses prize

There is a thriving counter-current of transnational African literary life that confounds rather than caters to an international taste for “digestible” fiction.

African literature is the object of immense international interest across both academic and popular registers. Far from the field’s earlier, post-colonial association with marginality, a handful of star “Afropolitan” names are at the forefront of global trade publishing.

Books like Chimamanda Adichie’s “Americanah” and “Half of a Yellow Sun”, Teju Cole’s “Open City”, Taiye Selasi’s “Ghana Must Go” and Yaa Gyasi’s “Homegoing” have confounded neat divisions between Western and African literary traditions. The Cameroonian novelist Imbolo Mbue captured a million-dollar contract for her first book, “Behold the Dreamers”. That’s even before it joined the Oprah’s Book Club pantheon this year.
