“It was strange, because this is the kind of environment where inclusion and diversity are the watchwords and bullying is wrong,” Weiss noted. “But bullying the right people, it’s not just okay there, it’s kind of like a virtue. One of the ways this played out was this just really, really insidious double standard. If you had the right politics, and you have the right perspective, you could basically be unscrutinized and you could act totally unprofessionally, for example, on Twitter, and nothing would happen to you.” … [Read more...] about Former NYT Writer Blasts Newspaper For Hypocrisy, Tells Megyn Kelly That It’s Become A Place Where You’re ‘Fired For’ Publishing Conservatives

Trenchard and colleagues proposed that this queueing enabled smaller, slower trilobites to keep up with larger, faster individuals. Through modelling, they calculated that a 61.5 % power saving could be made by a slipstreaming trilobite relative to the leader. They used measurements from a living isopod crustacean to estimate maximal sustainable walking speeds for different sizes of trilobite. Their modelling suggests that as the trilobites reached their maximal sustainable walking speed, they would be expected to align into a single-file queue – which is what is seen in the remarkable fossils. … [Read more...] about What do the Tour de France and fossils have in common?
