I've been watching a lot of the food show Mind of a Chef on Netflix lately. In a couple of episodes, a chef visits a locale where meat is being cured. I've noticed there consistently appears to be fungi (mould) growing on the meat, whether it's skerpikjøt (mutton dried using the wind on the Faroe Islands), dry-aged beef, country ham, or dry-cured sausage. These fungi, having managed to grow to such an extent as to be visible to the naked eye, obviously influence the characteristics of the ........ Read more »

The entrepreneur is one of the archetypes of our age, defined above all – if countless commencement speeches and hagiographies are anything to go by – by the passion they hold for their business, allowing them to devote so much to it. New research by Michael Gielnik and colleagues published in the Academy of Management Journal suggests this common belief has things backwards: in fact entrepreneurs get passionate because they get stuck in.The first study spent eight weeks surveying 54 German ........

By guest blogger David RobsonWhen screenwriter Nora Ephron's mother was on her deathbed, she had one instruction: "Take notes". For the family of writers and raconteurs, no event was too painful to be burned in the crucible of their wit. "Everything," Ephron Senior said, "is copy". Nora Ephron applied the philosophy religiously with the semi-autobiographical novel and film Heartburn, documenting her husband's cruel affair with "a fairly tall person with a neck as long as an arm and a nose as lon........

Social networking makes it easy to monitor the status and activities of a former romantic partner, an often unhealthy use of social media known as interpersonal electronic surveillance (IES) or, more commonly, “Facebook stalking.” Psychological and relationship factors and how individuals cope with the termination of a romantic relationship can help predict their use of online surveillance, according to a new study....
