Why our kids are going to play outside this winter, and yours should too, according to science

The benefits of outdoor play for children are significant in any season, with a scientifically proven link between outdoor activities and healthy brain development. This winter, our kids will be getting outdoors as often as possible, both for the fun and health benefits outdoor play engenders as well as to break the cycle of screen time that is all too common during the colder months.   Research suggests that outdoor play can benefit the mental, emotional, and (of course) physical development of children. In the words of a report released by the UMKC School of Education's Edgar L. and Rheta A....

The turkey you're about to eat weighs twice as much as it did a few decades ago

Turkeys have gotten much bigger than they were half a century ago.   To meet growing demand starting in the 1950s, American turkey farmers began to breed birds for their size and speed of growth. Today, the average turkey weighs around 30.5 pounds, almost twice as much as they did in the 1960s.  The turkey on your Thanksgiving table this week probably won't look anything like it would have decades ago.  Today's turkeys are a lot bigger — more than double the size — and faster-growing than the birds our parents or grandparents ate. For reference, here's the turkey that President...

Archaeologists discovered ancient bedroom 'erotica' art in Pompeii

"Leda and the Swan." Archaeologists in Pompeii uncovered an "erotic" fresco depicting "Leda and the Swan," a renown legend in Roman mythology. In the legend, the god Jupiter (commonly known in Greek mythology as Zeus) disguises himself as a swan and "seduces" the Spartan queen. The fresco most likely belonged to a rich merchant who wanted to elevate his social status with mythological artwork.  Even the ancient Romans liked their dirty pictures. Bow chicka wow wow. A newly unearthed fresco discovered in an ancient Pompeii bedroom captures a sensual – albeit uncomfortable – love scene between legendary Queen of Sparta...

These 7 states have the worst homelessness crises in the US. They also have some of the most expensive housing.

"I miss my kitchen. I miss my kid," said Christian McKenzie, a homeless woman in Seattle. Talk of homelessness in America tends to center on the most visible crises: open-air drug markets in San Francisco, crowded encampments in Los Angeles, cardboard shelters in New York, and tent cities in Seattle.  But even these harrowing conditions don't capture the full scope of homelessness in the US.  Although homelessness is declining by around 14% nationwide, 16 states have seen their homeless populations increase since 2007. In that time, states with a relatively small number of homeless residents like Wyoming and South Dakota...

A 24-year-old has invented a new way to break down plastic waste and prevent it from landing in the ocean

More than 220 million tons of plastic is produced around the world each year, but less than 20% is recycled. Miranda Wang, the 24-year-old CEO of BioCellection, has invented a new way to break down plastic waste. BioCellection focuses on recycling polyethylenes, which are the most common but least recyclable type of plastic. In early November, Wang's company received $100,000 from the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability for the invention. A 24-year-old University of Pennsylvania graduate has invented a new way to break down plastic waste and help keep single-use packaging out of oceans. Miranda Wang, co-founder and...
