flyLate last year, Jesse Singal of NYMag wrote of the left’s war on social science, citing trans researcher Alice Dreger. Last week Dreger had a piece pulled from Feminist Current after an uproar.

Last year, Max Fisher looked at the potential Third World War.

An interesting look at the relationship between intelligence and heredity.

The heartwarming story of a penguin and a prosthetic foot.

Sara Miller Llana looks at the relationship between religion and support for Brexit.

France’s labor strikes are intensifying. Partially in response to this, President Hollande is suffering from some of the worst approval ratings I have ever seen. One poll has him down to 5%.

Donald Trump, it turns out, is not always wrong.

I don’t know if Milo Yiannopoulos is a neo-Nazi, but I do suspect he would find himself doing alright under a fascist regime.

I can understand why Reid has to research Massachusetts’s senate vacancy procedures, since they change the rules whenever the governorship changes hangs. Maybe with a Republican governor, they’ll have the interim elected by state legislature.

    The 2nd Dreger link goes to the same place as the first.

    Also, Aaron Carroll blurb has no link.

      Thanks, the second half of the Carroll blurb (including the link) was missing. The other one fixed, too (with a link to the pulled article, published at another location).

    The article about the heredity of intelligence is a decente overview, but vaguely hints at a key point without actually spelling it out: Adult IQ is one of those traits I mentioned a while back that are dominated by genes and non-shared environment, with little to no contribution from shared environment, at least within the range of home environments seen in wealthy nations. So, yes, environment matters, but not the kind of environment that is typically assumed to be important.

    Also, 60% is on the low end, I think. The literature reviews I’ve seen attributed 70-80% of variation to genetics. It may be that the ones I saw were non-representative, though.
