Roses are red. Violets are blue. What gives flowers those eye-catching hues?
To solve the mystery of why roses are red and violets are blue, scientists are peering into the genes of plant petals. "When you ask anyone how one flower is different from another, for most of us, color is the feature that first comes to mind," says evolutionary biologist Stacey Smith of the University of Colorado Boulder. Most people don't think about why a flower is a particular color, but it's an important question for biologists, says Prosanta Chakrabarty, a program ...

Boys In Chairs: That Time I Couldn't Masturbate By Myself Anymore
In the summer of 2014, I wrote a blog post entitled, "Boys and Girls in Chairs: The 'Right' to Get Off".

At the time, I was talking about a hypothetical person. I never considered -- really considered -- the realities of what it might feel like to not be able to achieve self-ple...

Think chicken: Think intelligent, caring and complex
Chickens are not as clueless or ' bird-brained ' as people believe them to be. They have distinct personalities and can outmaneuver one another. They know their place in the pecking order, and can reason by deduction, which is an ability that humans develop by the age of seven. Chicken intelligence is therefore unnecessarily underestimated and overshadowed by other avian groups.
