Ten times violence: A review of Portraits of Violence: An Illustrated History of Radical Critique.
Reviews the book, Portraits of Violence: An Illustrated History of Radical Critique by Brad Evans and Sean Michael Wilson (2016). Evans and Wilson's cartoon book offers most delightful engagement with an otherwise rather grim subject: violence and what humans do to one another. The book’s core disproves Steven Pinker’s argument that violence is decreasing. Violence is indeed decreasing but only as long as one looks just at the most visible forms of violence, for instance, war deaths, massacres, genocide, rape, and sexual assault (Pinker, 2015). As soon as one starts to look beyond the headline news—Iraq, Afghanistan,...

BOSTON (CBS) – More and more people are being afflicted by Lyme disease, not only here in New England but around the country. It begs the question, why don’t we have a vaccine to prevent this common tick-borne illness? A human vaccine was introduced in 1998. It was effective but expensive and there was public concern about its safety and sales were low, so it was yanked off the market four years later. Right now there is only a Lyme vaccine for dogs. Fortunately, there is a new vaccine for humans in the pipeline developed by a French company, which says it has received fast-track status from the FDA and hopes t...
