A big element of the business story around climate change is risk. The risk to cities, states and countries, to businesses and the banks that invest in all of them.

Mathematics as a subject is distinctive in its symbolic abstraction and its potential for logical and computational rigor.

Far from incidental, these ideas prime mathematicians and the public to see in mathematics th…

In this pandemic, we are shopping online way, way more than we ever have.

Marielle Segarra recently clicked t…

We’ve been waiting for 5G, the fifth generation of wireless technology, for years.

There is a long history of brain research that seems to legitimize widely held beliefs about the men versus women.

And if so, what are they? To find out, yo…
 
Science may be known for banishing the demons of superstition from the modern world.

Lies and unfounded allegations about the U.S. election are not going anywhere.

Alfred S. Posamentier's The Joy of Geometry (Prometheus, 2020) is a book for someone who has taken geometry but wants to go further. This book, as one might expect, is heavy on diagrams and it is sometimes hard to discuss some of the ideas without reference to a diagram. Also, to be fair, this is not a book intended to be read casually. To fully ap…

The incoming Biden administration will have a long list of policy initiatives, but since the last time Joe Biden was in the White House, tech policy has taken on a much bigger role.
