    Many thanks to Tim Brown and TED for this interview we recorded at TED 2017.

    IDEO is an international design company founded in 1991. In the beginning, IDEO designed products—the first notebook-style computer, hard drives, even the next generation (of its time) PalmPilots. Most notably, in 1980, the firm was tasked by Steve Jobs to design a more affordable mouse for the Apple Lisa computer. By 2001, IDEO stepped away from designing products and pivoted to designing experiences. The process to solving problems, whether they be simple or complex, encompass these four steps: observing, ideamaking, prototyping, and testing. Tim Brown, CEO and president of the company, explains how human-centered design (and this four-step process) is a major key in how IDEO approaches complex challenges.

  • How American Gothic became an icon
    How American Gothic became an icon How did American Gothic go from third place painting to icon? There's a story to this famous painting.

    Grant Wood's American Gothic is a classic painting. But to understand its fame, you have to learn some context about how it became an icon.

    When Grant Wood painting his sister and dentist in front of a house in Eldon, Iowa, he didn't know his painting would become iconic. But American Gothic soon became the subject of countless homages and parodies.
    Wood's place in American art history is unique — and worth knowing to truly appreciate American Gothic.

  • How the triplet flow took over rap
    How the triplet flow took over rap The “Migos flow” deconstructed.





    In 2013, Migos made it to the Billboard Charts with "Versace." It was a viral hit and it put the spot light on a very unique rap flow - the triplet. The triplet, often now called the "Migos flow" happens when three syllables are rapped over one beat. It's now so popular that nearly every mainstream rap artists these days has used it, often to great effect. Kendrick rapped in triplets on one of the most dramatic moments of his latest album, Damn. and Chance the Rapper used triplets on the opening track of Coloring Book. This video is about where the triplet flow came from and how it's been a common tool for rappers since Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's debut albums in the '90s.

    Many thanks to Franklin Leonard and TED for this interview we recorded at TED 2017.

    Phil Edwards has a chat with Franklin Leonard, the creator of The Black List, Hollywoods’ famous anonymous survey of unproduced screenplays. The Black List isn’t a guarantee that a script will be produced, however, it does give overlooked scripts a second shot of getting on the big screen. A handful of academy award- winning-films found their second chance on the Black List. And in an industry brimming with multi-year contracted sequels, and well-established franchises, the Black List survey has become one of the few places in Tinseltown where one-off scripts have a chance to make it to the big screen.

  • The real reason To Kill A Mockingbird became so famous
    The real reason To Kill A Mockingbird became so famous Find Overrated on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/OverratedTheShow/

    In this episode of Overrated, Vox's Phil Edwards investigates the largely unheralded business reason behind the success of Harper Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird."

    Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird is a literary classic, but it was also a landmark book in the paperback revolution. Thanks to publishers like Penguin Books, paperbacks changed dramatically from pulp fiction and dime store novels to a a legitimate way to read great literature.

    To Kill A Mockinbird's timing helped it capitalize upon that business shift and become a classic in classrooms — for business reasons as well as literary ones.

  • What Hillary Clinton really thinks
    What Hillary Clinton really thinks Hillary Clinton’s theory of politics is unfashionable, but she doesn’t care.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    On page 239 of What Happened, Hillary Clinton reveals that she almost ran a very different campaign in 2016. Before announcing for president, she read Peter Barnes’s book With Liberty and Dividends for All, and became fascinated by the idea of using revenue from shared natural resources, like fossil fuel extraction and public airwaves, alongside revenue from taxing public harms, like carbon emissions and risky financial practices, to give every American “a modest basic income.”
    Her ambitions for this idea were expansive, touching on not just the country’s economic ills but its political and spiritual ones. “Besides cash in people’s pockets,” she writes, “it would be also be a way of making every American feel more connected to our country and to each other.” 
    This is the kind of transformative vision that Clinton was often criticized for not having. It’s an idea bigger than a wall, perhaps bigger even than single-payer health care or free college. But she couldn’t make the numbers work. Every version of the plan she tried either raised taxes too high or slashed essential programs. So she scrapped it. “That was the responsible decision,” she writes. But after the 2016 election, Clinton is no longer sure that “responsible” is the right litmus test for campaign rhetoric. “I wonder now whether we should’ve thrown caution to the wind, embraced [it] as a long-term goal and figured out the details later,” she writes.
    What Happened has been sold as Clinton’s apologia for her 2016 campaign, and it is that. But it’s more remarkable for Clinton’s extended defense of a political style that has become unfashionable in both the Republican and Democratic parties. Clinton is not a radical or a revolutionary, a disruptor or a socialist, and she’s proud of that fact. She’s a pragmatist who believes in working within the system, in promising roughly what you believe you can deliver, in saying how you’ll pay for your plans. She is frustrated by a polity that doesn’t share her “thrill” over incremental policies that help real people or her skepticism of sweeping plans that will never come to fruition. She believes in politics the way it is actually practiced, and she holds to that belief at a moment when it’s never been less popular.
    This makes Clinton a more unusual figure than she gets credit for being: Not only does she refuse to paint an inspiring vision of a political process rid of corruption, partisanship, and rancor, but she’s also actively dismissive of those promises and the politicians who make them.

    On Tuesday morning, I sat down with Clinton for an hour on the first official day of her book tour. It is a cliché that stiff candidates become freer, easier, and more confident after they lose — see Gore, Al — but it is true for Clinton. Jon Stewart used to talk of the “buffering” you could see happening in the milliseconds between when Clinton was asked a question and when she answered; the moments when she played out the angles, envisioned the ways her words could be twisted, and came up with a response devoid of danger but suffused with caution. That buffering is gone.
    In our conversation, she was as quick and confident as I’ve seen her, making the case for her politics without worrying too much about the coalitional angles or the possible lines of offense. And she says plenty that can, and will, offend. In our discussion, she lit into Bernie Sanders’s single-payer plan, warned that Donald Trump is dragging us down an authoritarian path, spoke openly of the role racism and white resentment played in the campaign, and argued that the outcome of the 2016 election represented a failure of the media above all. This was Clinton unleashed, and while she talked about what happened, it was much more interesting when she talked about what she believed should have happened.

  • The People Who Worship Aliens as Gods
    The People Who Worship Aliens as Gods So far, the concept of aliens in popular culture has largely been limited to little green, probing perverts from sci-fi and the rantings of conspiracy theorists. However, there is a group of men and women in a renovated church in Parson’s Green who take the matter very seriously. They are The Aetherius Society and to them, aliens are Gods.

    VICE's Amelia Dimoldenberg has the honour of being invited to their annual pilgrimage to Holdstone Down in Devon, the place where Jesus first came down in a spaceship from Venus. She is witness to Operation Prayer Power, a ritual where a 'prayer battery's' energy is charged so that it can be directed by Extraterrestrials to help mankind.

  • How 9/11 changed Disney's Lilo & Stitch
    How 9/11 changed Disney's Lilo & Stitch 9/11 was a turning point in every facet of American society — including cinema.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    In September of 2001, Disney was approaching final cut on Lilo & Stitch — a children's film set for release in early 2002. The climax of the film initially featured Stitch piloting a 747 through a fictional Hawaiian city. But that urban backdrop was replaced with a mountainous backdrop, and the aircraft was re-worked to look like an alien spacecraft.

    The changes were informed by the shift in the mood in America following the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Disney wasn't alone in their obligation to rework content to a more appropriate tone for a nation still reeling from the attacks. Children's shows like Power Rangers, Pokemon, and Invader Zim had episodes taken off the air due to scenes where buildings and cityscapes were destroyed.

    The nation had changed, and the national conversation facilitated by popular culture had changed alongside it. To trace these developments in greater detail, read this write-up from Lindsay Ellis: https://www.vox.com/2016/9/9/12814898/pop-culture-response-to-9-11

  • Why a storm surge can be the deadliest part of a hurricane
    Why a storm surge can be the deadliest part of a hurricane It can start before a hurricane even makes landfall.



    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    What really concerns experts, though, are places that don’t experience a lot of hurricanes but are still vulnerable to storm surge.
    This map shows that in the event of a big hurricane, based on the characteristics of the shoreline, the coasts of Northwest Florida and Georgia would be at comparable risk to the Gulf Coast.


    These areas have shallow water, which means sea level can rise faster and water can reach further inland making the flooding worse.
    But they’ve seen fewer hurricanes than the Gulf Coast and they are likely to be less prepared.
    So when a major hurricane like Irma hits low-lying areas like these, the storm surge can be the first and deadliest thing headed their way.

  • The colleges where the American dream is still alive
    The colleges where the American dream is still alive These schools are much better than Harvard, Yale, or Princeton at making poor kids rich.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    Wealthy, prestigious universities such as Harvard Yale, Stanford and Columbia garner billions in donations with the message of financial aid. They show off case after case of talented students from humble backgrounds reaching the top 1% after attending elite schools. The story goes that these universities aren’t just world leaders in cutting-edge research, they’re engines of upward social mobility.

    But the latest research by the Equality of Opportunity project suggests this is a myth. A study 10.8 million people on the effect colleges have at moving kids born into the bottom 20 percent of the income distribution up to the top 20 percent showed that though elite universities are very good at moving students up the income ladder, they let in very few low-income students. The problem isn’t one of financial aid, but outreach; thousands of high-achieving poor kids just aren’t applying to elite schools.

    The true heroes are less selective schools that let in a large number of students from the bottom 20%. They include Cal State Los Angeles and PACE University. These schools take in the most low-income students who move to the top fifth of income in the US after graduation.

    The most consequential decision President Donald Trump made on immigration in his first year in office wasn’t about the wall, or who’s going to pay for it, or anything else he talked about incessantly on the campaign trail.

    It was his decision to announce, on September 5, that his administration would be winding down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — a program he didn’t mention outright, that many people didn’t know about and even fewer understood.

    The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which has protected nearly 800,000 young adult unauthorized immigrants from deportation and allowed them to work legally since 2012. The immigrants protected through DACA grew up in the US; people might not assume they are unauthorized immigrants, and they might not have even known it themselves until they were teenagers. The program was supposed to give them a chance to build a life here.

    Now, DACA is on the chopping block. Trump, under pressure to make a decision about its future before September 5 (the day a group of Republican state officials were set to sue over its constitutionality), has decided that no one new will be protected under the program — and that those currently covered will start to lose their protection and work permits on March 6, 2018.

    The prospect of DACA’s demise is throwing the program into sharp relief: calling attention to the “DREAMers” who’ve been able to benefit from it, and the ways in which their lives have been changed over the past five years.

  • Why more pop songs should end with a fade out
    Why more pop songs should end with a fade out The fade out is underrated. It should come back.




    The fade out in music is one of those necessary tools in a record producers arsenal. But if you listen to today's hits it's much more likely you'll hear a song that has a hard abrupt electronic ending. Bill Weir, wrote a great piece at Slate a few years ago tracking the rise and fall of the fade out in pop music: from one of the very first fade outs created by a literal wooden door to the epic 4 minute fade out of "Hey Jude." In the video above he brings me through that sonic journey.

    Here's the Slate article for reference: http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/music_box/2014/09/the_fade_out_in_pop_music_why_don_t_modern_pop_songs_end_by_slowly_reducing.html

But most interesting was a methodical shift in hue as winter descends upon Westoros. The show managed to shift the average hue of aggregate color palettes from warm to cool as the seasons changed.

  • Why America still uses Fahrenheit
    Why America still uses Fahrenheit Fahrenheit, explained to the rest of the world


    Since I've moved to the US in 2010, there's one thing that I still don't fully understand: the imperial system. Virtually every country on earth uses Celsius but America has yet to follow. Although it might not seem like a big deal, not using the metric system puts America at a great disadvantage. For example, American kids have to learn 2 sets of measurements making science education even more difficult. On top of that, American companies have to produce extra products to export to metric countries. So why does the United States still have such an antiquated system of measurement?

    The collapse of Venezuela and President Maduro's rise to dictatorship.
    Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America.
    It has the largest known oil reserves in the world. And its democratic government was once praised world wide.
    But today, Venezuela’s democratic institutions and its economy are in shambles.
    The country has the highest inflation in the world, making food and medicine inaccessible to most Venezuelans.
    Over the last four years, its GDP has fallen 35%, which is a sharper drop than the one seen during the Great Depression in the US.
    The country’s murder rate has surpassed that of the most dangerous cities in the world.



    These conditions have sparked months of protests against the president, Nicolas Maduro. And it’s easy to see why: the country has become measurably worse since his election in 2013.

    The modern way of burying a body, the "casket in the ground method" most of us are used to is horrible for the environment. It uses an incredible amount of resources, emits toxic pollutants into the air, and pumps the ground full of formaldehyde, which is known to cause cancer. It's also prohibitively expensive. The average cost of a modern funeral costs between $10,000 to $12,000.

    There are a number of greener options available though. Cremation uses less resources and requires less space than a traditional burial, but isn't perfect. There are more experimental methods on the horizon such as promession and alkaline hydrolysis.

    No matter which method we choose, it's clear that we need to reform how we bury the dead.

    Following clashes of violence surrounding protest against the removal of Robert E.

The central questions: Are these monuments meant to commemorate the racial tension underlying the confederacy's secession? Or are they meant to serve as a simple marker of American history?

    The designation was originally for small-business owners to bypass corporate taxes and only pay the individual tax rate. Now huge corporations are also taking advantage.

    He explains how Microsoft Paint works for him, and includes notes about his favorite artists, like Herge, Ivan Bilibin, and more. He also shows why he prefers Paint to Photoshop and Illustrator and how it created his unique artistic style. This speedpaint is a reflection of years of labor.

    How a recording-studio mishap shaped '80s music Warning: This is an unapologetic ode to gated reverb drums



    Here's a Spotify playlist of some of the best gated reverb songs: http://spoti.fi/2vH7ZZL

    Over the past few years a general nostalgia for the 1980s has infiltrated music, film, and television. I deeply love those gated reverb drums of the '80s - you know that punchy percussive sound popularized by Phil Collins and Prince? So for my second episode of Vox Pop’s Earworm I spoke with two Berklee College of Music professors, Susan Rogers and Prince Charles Alexander, to figure out just how that sound came to be, what makes it so damn punchy, and why it’s back.

  • Anti-Jihadist Training Camp: VICE Reports
    Anti-Jihadist Training Camp: VICE Reports After the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the Paris attacks, the Nice attack, and a constant drumbeat of smaller lethal jihadist terror attacks, France is a country on edge. Still in a state of emergency, with troops patrolling the streets and more than 17,000 suspected terrorists to monitor, France’s security services are more stretched than ever, and its civilian population on edge.

    Now a French entrepreneur living in Poland is offering what he calls “anti-jihadist training” in Poland, a country lionized by Europe’s new radical right for its uncompromising attitude to Muslim immigration and rejection of Western European liberalism. Videos on Hussard’s website show camouflaged figures training in woodland with automatic weapons- is this legitimate self-defence training against a potential jihadist attack, or is it the beginning of a worrying slide towards militia training and civil conflict in France?

    VICE went to Warsaw to meet Grégory Leroy, founder of Hussard, to find out what the anti-jihadist training involves, why he’s doing it, and what kind of people attend.

  • Tales from the shadow of the moon
    Tales from the shadow of the moon Eclipse chasers tell us what it's like to witness a total solar eclipse.

    The August 21, 2017, total solar eclipse in the US will likely be the most-viewed totality in history and the first for a whole generation of Americans. But there is a small community of enthusiasts who have already seen 5, 12, even 30 total eclipses before. That's because after their first eclipse, they were hooked, and now spend all of their vacation time and spare money chasing total solar eclipses around the world, with the solar system as their travel guide. We interviewed 9 of these eclipse veterans to find out what totality is like, what we should expect, and whether they have advice for first-timers.

    Haiti has a significant deforestation problem, driven in part by the widespread usage of charcoal for cooking in Haitian households. This practice is doubly problematic as it also raises health concerns for Haitians who burn charcoal in their homes. One initiative, spearheaded by The Nature Conservancy, is tackling this problem through the introduction of solar ovens. These ovens cook food with reflected sunlight, reducing the burden of deforestation in a sustainable way.

    Vox Borders is a new international series focused on telling the human stories that emerge from lines on the map. Johnny will travel to six border locations to produce a final set of documentaries. While he travels he'll release dispatches on YouTube and Facebook documenting his experiences.

  • Charlottesville: Race and Terror – VICE News Tonight on HBO
    Charlottesville: Race and Terror – VICE News Tonight on HBO On Saturday hundreds of white nationalists, alt-righters, and neo-Nazis traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia to participate in the “Unite the Right” rally. By Saturday evening three people were dead – one protester, and two police officers – and many more injured.

    “VICE News Tonight” correspondent Elle Reeve went behind the scenes with white nationalist leaders, including Christopher Cantwell, Robert Ray, David Duke, and Matthew Heimbach — as well as counter-protesters. VICE News Tonight also spoke with residents of Charlottesville, members of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the Charlottesville Police.

    From the neo-Nazi protests at Emancipation Park to Cantwell’s hideaway outside of Virginia, “VICE News Tonight” provides viewers with exclusive, up close and personal access inside the unrest.

    This episode of VICE News Tonight aired August 14, 2017 on HBO.

    ///

    August 20, 2017 marks the fortieth anniversary of the launch of Voyager 2. Along with Voyager 1, NASA sent the twin spacecraft to collect data about giant planets of our outer solar system. Voyager 2 was the first spacecraft to visit Uranus and Neptune, as well as discovering many new moons orbiting both Jupiter and Saturn. In addition to collecting data, Voyager 2 was sent with a copy of “The Golden Record”: a disk containing 116 images and various audio recordings that depict human life. Should Voyager 2 ever be encountered by an extraterrestrial, the record will be a means of understanding planet Earth. Besides the collection of data and the mysteries of alien life, perhaps the most wondrous aspect of Voyager 2's mission is the distance it has traveled: nearly 11 billion miles as of late 2017. It is the second-farthest human-made object from earth (the farthest is Voyager 1) and it is currently on a one-way journey into the unknown depths of interstellar space. Unable to grasp the enormity of this distance, we made a video to try and visualize what that actually looks like.

    The real reason streetcars are making a comeback It’s mostly about economic development.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    Starting in the late 20th century, modern streetcar proposals started rippling across municipalities in the United States. They’re touted as infrastructure carrying benefits ranging from the social to economic and the environmental. But these projects often make appearances in the news as costly, blunder-filled experiments in public policy.

    Cities are willing to bet big on this technology for its potential to develop the local economy. But there is some disagreement as to whether the streetcar is driving this progress, or if it is simply the result of planning *around* the streetcar.

    If you're looking for more information on public transportation and urban planning, here are a few links:

    This interactive map by Yonah Freemark and Steven Vance allows you to zoom in on all public transportation projects across North America. http://www.thetransportpolitic.com/transitexplorer/#6/38.617/-78.673

    Most people have probably never heard of it but there is a tiny 100 by 200 foot island on the East River in New York City called U Thant Island. It’s right below Roosevelt Island and next to the United Nations headquarters and has more history per square foot than most places in Manhattan.

    It’s origin dates back to the late 19th century when construction of an underground tunnel produced a tiny mound of rock that was originally named Belmont Island, after August Belmont Jr. who financed the construction project.

    In the intervening years it was leased by a Buddhist spiritual group, crashed into by numerous vessels, and briefly occupied by a protesting artist.

  • The secret rhythm behind Radiohead's "Videotape"
    The secret rhythm behind Radiohead's "Videotape" Welcome to Vox Pop: Earworm!




    In my first episode of Earworm, I speak with Warren Lain. He's a Radiohead fan who also happens to be an incredibly talented musician and music teacher. In December 2016 he uploaded a 38 minute video to YouTube about a Radiohead song that I deeply love, "Videotape." He had been thinking about the music theory behind this seemingly simple song for the better part of a decade. The reason? “Videotape”, a slow rhythmically monotonous song, is actually syncopated. I’m joined also by Erin Barra, a professor at Berklee College of Music, who helped Warren and I explain this musical illusion.

    Warren’s video can be found right here:

    Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the US; and climate change is helping it to spread even more. Animals such as deer, mice, squirrels, other critters in wooded area can be hosts to the bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, that causes Lyme disease in humans. When ticks feed off these hosts, the ticks become infected with it. And the bacteria can then be transmitted to humans via tick bites. There are numerous ways to prevent tick bites, but the best protection is vigilance. Whether you're going hiking, camping, or just a stroll in the woods, check for ticks that may have become attached. The sooner the tick is removed, the lesser your chances of being infected with Lyme disease.

  • Sweden's Hidden People: VICE Reports
    Sweden's Hidden People: VICE Reports In this episode of VICE Reports Hidden in Sweden, correspondent Milène Larsson discovers the emergence of a growing parallel society in Sweden, as increasing numbers of denied asylum seekers who fear deportation are going into hiding. Stakes for people in this situation are much higher now since it was revealed that the terror attack in Stockholm on April 7 was committed by a denied asylum seeker in hiding. She meets refugees and the ordinary Swedish people who are opening up their homes to hide them, and finds out about the civilian networks organising across Sweden to help those no longer under the protection of the authorities. She also meets an MP of the far right Sweden Democrats (now the second biggest party in Sweden) that wants to make it a punishable crime to hide refugees, as well as the head of the Swedish border police who expects an additional 40,000 denied asylum seekers to go into hiding in the coming years, and that’s not counting undocumented migrants.

    No one knows the true scale of this parallel society and Sweden will struggle with the consequences of this social exclusion for decades to come. The occurrence of a parallel society is not unique to Sweden, it's a reality across Europe.

  • How fentanyl is making the opioid epidemic even worse
    How fentanyl is making the opioid epidemic even worse Fentanyl, a drug more potent that heroin, is the latest iteration of America's evolving opioid epidemic.

    Fentanyl is the latest iteration in an opioid epidemic that is claiming an increasing number of American lives. In the mid 1990s, Americans started getting hooked on prescription pills in record numbers. Many users found their way to addiction by abusing pills like OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin – prescription opioids that had been prescribed by medical professionals to treat pain. Hoping to stem an increasing number of opioid overdoses, the US government limited the supply of prescription pills by restricting regulations, prosecuting irresponsible physicians, and penalizing drug manufacturers. As a result, addicts had access to fewer pills so they turned to a more potent opioid: heroin. As the rate of heroin usage began climbing, the desire for even more potent opioids soon increased. Within a few years, overdoses caused by another opioid began rising: fentanyl. Three years after US heroin overdoses began rising, overdoses caused by synthetic opioids (e.g., fentanyl) began rising as well. Now, even more potent opioids, like carfentanil, are starting to be used by opioid addicts. The iterative progression of the opioid epidemic demonstrates the need for more responsible drug policy: in addition to cracking down on the supply of drugs, authorities can work to reduce the demand for opioids by providing and promoting effective addiction treatments.

  • The sound illusion that makes Dunkirk so intense
    The sound illusion that makes Dunkirk so intense Why Christopher Nolan is obsessed with Shepard tones.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a nerve-wracking movie. Three separate storylines tell the tale of the famed World War II evacuation in a intense two hours of film. A lot of that feeling has to do with how the film's score uses Shepard tones — layered sound waves that simulate a constant ascent in tone — to create a sensation of building tension. They're a personal favorite trick of Nolan's: he's based sound effects and entire soundtracks with other composers on the auditory illusion. In Dunkirk, composer Hans Zimmer crafted his soundtrack around the effect — and it's an auditory masterpiece.

  • Raised Without Gender
    Raised Without Gender With recent victories for the trans rights movement and more young people defining as something other than “male” or “female” than ever before, VICE host Amelia Abraham goes to Sweden - the world’s most forward thinking country when it comes to questioning gender - to find out what it’s like to grow up without the gender binary.

    In Sweden, the gender neutral pronoun “hen” has been in the national dictionary since 2015 and is now commonly used by most Swedes, the Swedish government’s school plan has since 1998 forbidden enforcing gender stereotypes, and government funded gender neutral kindergartens with gender aware teachers has made it possible for families to raise their children without a set gender identity, something that often sparks controversy in the foreign press.

    Amelia spends time with one of these gender non-conforming families, mapa (mom and dad) Del LaGrace Volcano who was born intersex (both male and female), the children Mika (5) and Nico (3) and their grandma Margareta. She visits Mika and Nico's gender aware kindergarten to find out what the teachers and the other kids make of Mika’s gender expression.She also meets the founder of Sweden’s gender-neutral kindergartens, Lotta Rajalin, to learn how they go about deleting gender norms from education, as well as psychiatrist Dr Eberhard who is against Sweden’s attitude to gender in kindergartens.

  • The bizarre physics of fire ants
    The bizarre physics of fire ants They're not just an animal, they're a material. And that's got engineers interested.

    Red imported fire ants (solenopsis invicta) are native to South America and an invasive species in the United States. One of the adaptations that makes them so hardy is that they can build large structures by linking their bodies together. This is how they form rafts that can float during floods. When they're aggregated together, fire ants can be seen as a material and the Hu lab at Georgia Tech has been testing that material for years.

  • The Supreme Court's two big gerrymandering cases, explained
    The Supreme Court's two big gerrymandering cases, explained The Court won't use the same criteria for either case. Here's why.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    In America, voting districts are redrawn every ten years to account for shifts in demographics. Someone has to be in charge of drawing the new lines. And because voting is left to the states, in many jurisidictions this responsibility is left to partisan politicians. This creates an opening for politicians who might want to alter the outcome of an election through a process called gerrymandering.

    But not all gerrymandering is the same. There are, in fact, two types: racial, and partisan. It is much more difficult to prove harm as a plaintiff in a partisan gerrymandering case than a racial one. And that distinction has to do with provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
