    Somebody forgot to tell me that Boston magazine is a legitimate journalistic enterprise. I was under the impression that they were solely in the business of giving away (or selling) "Best of Boston"...

    But in this case they arenít just acquiring and deploying technology willy-nilly; in fact, far from it:



    Does this mean we canít trust the judgment of the people whose job it is to assess...

    Regarding the USAFA start time study (link):


    All students at the Air Force Academy are required to have breakfast at the same time every morning, leading the authors to surmise that they all...

    How do students reach 100% of their full potential if all co-curricular benefits are eliminated?
  5. *sigh* The back and forth in this thread (onto...

    *sigh* The back and forth in this thread (onto which I've admittedly thrown plenty of kindling) is sounding more and more like an argument about religion, in which both sides are as certain they are...

    Eloquently put. It's this self-sustained desire to learn, for example, that drives many graduate students. Selling learning for the sake of learning, however, will be quite the challenge.

    How would you bring that about? At its core, I think you have an important point, which I understand to be that we need to instill a stronger sense of the value of learning (and so by necessity of...

    That is a tautology. You are saying that the fact many people agree with Graham proves that many people agree with Graham. No?



    Perhaps Mr. Hoffman should simple have pointed out that Graham is...

    The ďfull quoteĒ fails to bolster your argument. You are arguing that an immature brain is in effect a savage brain, and that teenagers cannot help but be cruel to one another. The study cited does...

    This paper (PDF) expands on that link (and I think may be its primary source, though the link you gave provides no citations). The authors explain that the prefrontal cortex undergoes significant...

    I'm not 100% sure (having not read every one of them), but I have a strong hunch that the people who are apt to respond to Grahamís essay are a self-selecting group. That is, people who were labelled...
