If you’ve ever sneezed while driving your car, did you immediately think, “Cars Cause the Common Cold!”? No, of course not. A headline like that wouldn’t make any sense. And yet, some of the sources we rely on for health and medical news are not much better. Many media outlets are perfectly happy to grab us with a wacky headline or an article that reflects none of the nuance of the study on which it’s based—as long as we buy the magazine or click through to the article. And we do. We take the bait. With 50,000 scientific studies published each week in English, many media outlets don’t put in the time and effort to adequately decipher and report on even a tiny fraction of those studies. But they publish news about them, anyway.

Being able to study efficiently and effectively is a superpower. As students, it boost our grades, reduces our stress levels and frees up our time to do more interesting things. But we're never taught how to do it. Most of us rely on 'intuitive' techniques like rereading, note-taking, summarising and highlighting to get through our exams. But as the evidence shows, these intuitive techniques are often counter-productive.

A first impression can make or break a successful interaction, whether it’s in the office, at a party, or on a date. Before you speak or even shake hands, the first way you communicate with others is through body language and facial expression. Consider just a few of the messages you are sending to someone upon first look: Do you exude confidence, or are you visibly nervous? Are your shoulders pulled back and your posture straight, or do you have your hands shoved in your pockets? Do you make eye contact, or shift your gaze around the room?

Key Points of Learning: 01. How British Anglicanism came to be replaced in the South by evangelical Christianity. 02. Trace the rise of abolitionism and antislavery societies, and the violent backlash of anti-abolitionists. 03. Investigate the vibrant musical culture of the postbellum South and the African musical elements that converged in the birth of ragtime and jazz, as well as the evolution of blues, country music, and gospel. The American South holds a special place in the minds of people around the world. The South’s extraordinarily colorful and dramatic history, its competing narratives of prosperity and cruelty, its role in the American Civil War, and its influence on the emerging conception of human rights are, for many, the stuff of legend.

Count on Freddie Mercury to bring such a distinctive group of artists together for a concert memorializing his untimely passing while helping to raise awareness of the then rather frightening "new" disease of AIDS. Who else but the inimitable Queen frontman could have brought together such disparate people as Axl Rose and Liza Minnelli? And yet here they—and an incredible roster of other A-list stars—all are, in this often breathtaking 1992 concert which has long been on …

Filmed over the course of five immensely challenging years, it remains a fascinating eight-episode exploration of the world's oceans, beautiful underwater expanses and coastal vistas, and rich, diverse sea life, with narration from David Attenborough and music composed by five-time Academy Award nominee George Fenton. The game-changing culmination of what came before it and the inspiration for much of what has come after, The Blue Planet remains a fairly absorbing experience, even if it's been surpassed by more in-depth natural history series in the twelve years since its debut. While by no means a deterrent, the production's age does take a small toll, from its standard definition video…

Stories have been told throughout history since the time of cavemen. Over the centuries, this has evolved into modern cinema, television and even video games but some of the most well-known fables and fairy tales have endured and are still told today. Myths & Monsters is an interesting, 6 part documentary that chronicles the origin to some of the best-known stories in Western culture in an interesting and engaging way. Although a lack of Eastern-influenced fables is a little disappointing, this documentary does a good job of piquing interest in the various stories depicted whilst never diving deeply enough to make it an exhausting watch.
