Scientists in Need of Arts Training

How can universities train our scientists, technologists and engineers to engage with society rather than perform as cogs in the engine of economic development? Author Richard Lachman asks for educational system to require STEM students to take art and humanities courses, not as an attempt to “broaden minds” but as a necessary discussion of morals, ethics and responsibility.

Rates of hypoxia induction alter mechanisms of O2 uptake and the critical O2 tension of goldfish [RESEARCH ARTICLE]

Matthew D. Regan and Jeffrey G. RichardsThe rate of hypoxia induction (RHI) is an important but overlooked dimension of environmental hypoxia that may affect an organism’s survival. We hypothesized that, compared with rapid RHI, gradual RHI will …

Why Are Free Speech and Diversity Seen as Campus Enemies?

The news that students at City, University of London have voted to ban The Sun, Daily Mail and Express newspapers from its campus – a ban which could be extended to other media organisations – is just the latest example of how free speech is under threat at universities across the globe.

Mathematics: “Particle collisions are somehow linked to mathematical ‘motives.’”

From math and computer science writer Kevin Hartnett at Quanta: Over the last decade physicists and mathematicians have been exploring a surprising correspondence that has the potential to breathe new life into the venerable Feynman diagram and generate far-reaching insights in both fields. It has to do with the strange fact that the values calculated […]

Quantum mechanics as an emergent property of space-time.

Is the quantization of energy/mass a fundamental or an emergent characteristic of reality. Quantum mechanics assumes that it is fundamental because it defines all interactions within it in terms of its quantized properties while one could say that Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity defines it in terms of an emergent property of continuous space-time manifold […]
