Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, covering anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice. Follow her on Twitter @krystaldcosta.

Quite a diverse collection this week:

  • Can a specially designed Speedo help you match the speed of a shark? If you’re skeptical, you’re in good company. Elizabeth Preston of Inkfish explains why we come up short trying to duplicate the physical qualities of shark skin.
  • Language can be quite telling about social norms. Ingrid Pillar of Language on the Move delves into some of the ways change is reflected in language in a Bavarian village.
  • Are you a city person or a country person? At Per Square Mile, Tim DeChant explores why the suburbs continue to draw people from urban centers.

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.

    August 7th, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    So, I had this charger for about 6 weeks when it just stopped working. The part that plugs into the computer no longer lights up or charges my laptop. It just so happen to stop working a week after the date that I could return the product. But I mean for 7 dollars, I guess it lasted longer than I expected. I dont think it would have been worth the hassel to return the product anyway. I guess I’ll just have to pay more for a better quality product.

    You can use these Kitchen – Aid mixer attachments to shred onions, potatoes, chocolate or even nuts. Large kitchen appliances can indeed be worthy investments, so try to make sure you have the works: lifetime guarantee, service warranties, spare parts warranties, etc. Audio interfaces turn your desktop computer into a very capable mixing machine.
