20 Cellos

Aug 29 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: reveries

Maya Beiser channels Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix and others through her cello, reports Corinne Ramey in The Wall Street Journal (8/26/14). Her idea is to play their “voice.” With Kurt Kobain, for instance, Maya produces a “grimy, fuzzy howl.” “His voice is raspy and out of tune and not clean,” says Maya. Getting at that “is about … diving into that world.” Similarly, Jimi Hendrix’s solo on Little Wing is “so out of tune … You have to learn to bend and sort of ...

Ethics vs. Research

Aug 27 2014 4:01am CDT | Source: reveries

Researchers are grappling with the ethical dilemma of deceiving their subjects in the name of science," reports Shirley S. Wang in The Wall Street Journal (8/26/14). The argument goes that there are some circumstances under which failing to tell subjects they are being studied is the only way to get accurate information. Geoff Pearson of University of Liverpool applied this premise in a ten-year study of ...

The End of Absence

Aug 26 2014 4:30am CDT | Source: reveries

Michael Harris thinks we need to limit our intake of technology just as we do fat and sugar (The Economist 8/16/14). Michael is author of The End of Absence, in which he argues that putting ourselves on a high-tech diet may be the last best hope, of those who still remember life before the web, to pass along healthier habits to the next generation. His premise is that when "our insatiable appetites — for information, stimulation, validation" — are instantl ...

Cool Yawns

Aug 25 2014 4:01am CDT | Source: reveries

Yawning doesn’t necessarily mean you are tired or bored. It could mean your brain is on fire, reports Jonathan Rockoff in The Wall Street Journal (8/19/14). First, forget the old idea that yawning was "the body’s way of correcting for a dearth of oxygen." It’s also a myth that our "tendency to yawn when other people yawn" is "an expression of empathy." The latest thinking is that it’s changes in brain chemistry that make ...

Fox News

Aug 21 2014 4:02am CDT | Source: reveries

Foxes are "more wily and flexible learners" than hedgehogs because of their childhoods, reports Alison Gopnik in The Wall Street Journal (8/20/14). The difference between the two animals — whose traits are often ascribed to people — was defined by the Greek poet Archilochus, who said: "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing." (Archilochus apparently knew one thing but didn’t know how to make it rhyme.) The concept was later popularized by Isaiah Berl ...

Beane’s Genius

Aug 21 2014 4:01am CDT | Source: reveries

Contrary to popular belief, the Oakland A’s success is not because of homegrown players, reports Jared Diamond in The Wall Street Journal (8/20/14). In fact, the "A’s have used just four homegrown players in 2014, the fewest in baseball by a wide margin." By comparison, the languishing New York Mets "have used 21, the third-highest total." Interestingly, both teams have "similar payrolls" — the Mets actually spend a bit more ($85 mill ...
