Dirty Jobs’ Mike Rowe on the Dignity of Labor

Posted on 01.23.08 | Not Rated

"Dirty Jobs is an homage to George Plimpton, with a nod to Studs Terkel--an introduction, Rowe says, to the 'men and women who do the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us.' Watching Rowe struggle with a forklift or wade through raw sewage is good, nasty fun. But for all the bathroom humor, his real curiosity about and respect for his subjects telegraphs a powerful message: There's dignity in hard work, expertise in unexpected places, and deep satisfaction in tackling and finishing a tough job."

What’s Behind Steroids? A Culture of Fear

Posted on 01.16.08 | Rating: 3

"We must openly address not only the drug issues plaguing the sports we love, but the culture of fear that shakes our society... We’re scared of failure, aging, vulnerability, leaving too soon, being passed up — and in the quest to conquer these fears, we are inspired by those who do whatever it takes to rise above and beat these odds. We call it 'drive' or 'ambition,' but when doing 'whatever it takes' leads us down the wrong road, it can erode our humanity. The game ends up playing us..." READ MORE >

Big Brain Theory: Have Cosmologists Lost Theirs?

Posted on 01.15.08 | Rating: 4

“It could be the weirdest and most embarrassing prediction in the history of cosmology, if not science… If true, it would mean that you yourself reading this article are more likely to be some momentary fluctuation in a field of matter and energy out in space than a person with a real past born through billions of years of evolution in an orderly star-spangled cosmos… If you are inclined to skepticism this debate might seem like further evidence that cosmologists… have finally lost their minds.” READ MORE >

These Scientists Can’t Tolerate the Pope

Posted on 01.15.08 | Rating: 3

"Sixty one Italian scientists have signed a letter protesting against a planned visit this week by Pope Benedict XVI to Rome's Sapienza University because of his stated views on Galileo... Then Cardinal Ratzinger ... observed that 'At the time of Galileo the Church remained much more faithful to reason than Galileo himself. The process against Galileo was reasonable and just.' The Italian Catholic writer Vittorio Messori agreed, saying Galileo 'was not condemned for the things he said, but for the way he said them. He made statements with sectarian intolerance...'"

Movie Violence Might Temper the Real Thing

Posted on 01.07.08 | Rating: 3

"“The study’s premise strikes me as somewhat goofy,' said Melissa Henson, senior director of programs at the Parents Television Council, a media watchdog... 'I’d hate for people to walk away with the message that, ‘Oh, I ought to send my son to watch violent movies so they won’t go out and drink or do drugs and commit violent crime...’" READ MORE >

Taking Science on Faith

Posted on 11.28.07 | Not Rated

Taking Science on Faith Unlike biologists, who get tarred with the brush of Creationism at the slightest mention of the G-word, physicists have been free to bring God into their speculation. Here, physicist Paul Davies explains the obvious: that both religion and science are confronted with mysteries that can’t be reduced to theories or empirical investigation.… READ MORE >

Why Benedict XVI Is So Cautious with the Letter of the 138 Muslims

Posted on 11.27.07 | Not Rated

Why Benedict XVI Is So Cautious with the Letter of the 138 Muslims Few observers are more hardnosed and skeptical about dialogue with Islam than Sandro Magister. Sometimes he goes overboard, but here he’s probably right to contrast the fawning response by 300 Christian scholars to the Muslim “letter of the 138” to the Pope’s more toughminded, nuanced stance. How many apologies for… READ MORE >

Posted on 11.19.07 | Not Rated

Bob Guccione Jr. finds his way back to church "For Gooch, an erstwhile altar boy who describes himself as 'a lazy but devout Catholic,' science is incomplete without the contemplation of faith.
