Could Testing Block Psychopaths From Senior Management?
A psychopath who couldn't get around a simple test isn't much of a psychopath.
Microsoft's Hotmail Challenge Backfires
I had the same thing happen to me. They wanted to send text to a phone number that did not exist anymore. It was a fairly lightly used account so I had never sent many emails or anything. They havent given the access back to me after 2 months of back and forth.
US Authorities GPS Tagging Duped Indian Students
You just have to go an immigration forum dominated by Indians like murthyforum.com and search for TVU. You will find posts as far back as last year where people were discussing TVU as a university which would issue you a CPT (curricular practical training) from day one had no classes and you could start working right away with other people warning this was a fraud. The discussions were long and many people wanted to work from day one. Often it was people who were laid off from their jobs, could not find something in the short period thereafter, so you join this "university", change to an F-1, get a CPT and start working elsewhere without the limitations that an H1 imposes.
Some Google Searches Now Blocked In China
India also blocks various websites, just a much smaller number. e.g., savitabhabhi.com was blocked not too long back.
Second Inquiry Exonerates Climatic Research Unit
Science isn't mathematics. In the most fundamental case, I would argue that any imprecision implies some degree of subjectivity, and no measurement made by a human has infinite precision.
Objectivity doesn't imply infinite precision. In fact, infinite precision is impossible, and we can still have extremely objective theories and measurements in quantum mechanics.
Studies Reveal Why Kids Get Bullied and Rejected
I think this is a wrong way of looking at it. Think of it like defensive driving. Regardless of who is at fault in a car accident, defensive driving reduces the chance of you getting into a collision. Learning behaviors that reduce the likelihood of you getting bullied is similar. Moreover, unlike car accidents where you do have some recourse after the accident in bullying you are usually out on your own. Teachers don't believe you, at worst they often take the sides of the bullies and a lot of teachers are former bullies themselves. Also, changing the behavior of one kid who has a good incentive to change behavior (not get bullied) is much easier than changing the behavior of everyone else who have little to gain from not bullying and something to lose (dominance).

Correcting Misperceptions About Evolution
I suggest that we make a rule that if you do not believe in evolution you cannot be prescribed any of the newer antibiotics in case you get a bacterial illness since the earlier ones should be just as effective. If creationists are right, they will save some money, and if they are wrong we will exert a gentle evolutionary force toward people with better critical thinking skills.
