Who will win Nobel Prizes in 2022? Wikipedia posits a handful of contenders for Physiology or Medicine, about 20 different possible winners for the Peace Prize and several dozen potential winners of the Literature Prize.

There’s a growing bipartisan push to prohibit members of Congress from buying or selling stocks. The shift follows news reports that several senators sold stocks shortly after receiving coronavirus briefings in early 2020 and that at least 57 lawmakers have failed to disclose financial transactions since 2012 as required by law. Congress passed that law – the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge […]

  1. PHILOSOPHY
Philosophers have historically treated the problem of knowledge as establishing the conditions for personal “justified true belief” in the presence of philosophical skepticism and relativism. Epistemologists since Plato‘s Theatetus have developed a bewildering number of theories of knowledge.  Second only to Kant ‘s “scandal” that philosophers cannot logically prove the existence of the external world, it is scandalous that professional philosophers are […]

The company says it expects the flex format to be adopted by the […]

Cartoons make us laugh. But they can also make us feel anger and powerlessness, fear and loathing. In early January, Al-Qaeda gunmen unleashed a brutal attack on the offices of the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo in retaliation for cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad.
