The Twenty-Seven Best Movies of the Decade By Richard Brody November 26, 2019 [image: Illustration featuring characters and elements from the films 'Get Out' 'Wolf of Wall Street' 'Holy Motors' 'The Grand...]From an artistic perspective, the past decade in movies is the decade of mumblecore. The movement of intimately scaled, often improvised, low-budget dramas and comedies that pull their actors from the lives and milieux of filmmakers who build stories around their personal experiences has become the energy-giving core of the American cinema. All decade long, aside from the reliab... mais »

[image: Aerial view of an aeroplane flying over a glacier in Alaska.] An aeroplane flies over a glacier in the Wrangell St Elias National Park in Alaska. (Frans Lanting/Nat Geo Image Collection) “The stability and resilience of our planet is in peril.” Evidence is mounting that abrupt and irreversible shifts in the Earth system — such as the loss of the Amazon rainforest or the West Antarctic ice sheet — are more likely than was thought. At worst, a global cascade of these tipping points could lead to a new, less habitable, ‘hothouse’ climate state. Seven climate scientists look at th... mais »

(Dennis Kunkel Microscopy/SPL) How stem-cell therapies mend broken hearts Common stem-cell therapies improve heart function — but not by becoming heart-muscle cells themselves. Instead, research in mice shows that they trigger immune cells called macrophages to repair connective tissue in damaged regions of the organ. Swapping the stem cells with an inflammation-inducing chemical — or even bits of dead cells — worked, too, indicating that inflammation set of... mais »

Brain Pickings by Maria PopovaFROM THE ARCHIVE | Living and Loving Through Loss: Beautiful Letters of Consolation from Great Artists, Writers, and Scientists *“Grief, when it comes, is nothing like we expect it to be,”* Joan Didion wrote in her classic memoir of loss.

And when grief does come, when its tidal force anneals us to the rawest axis of our being, it seems like nothing at all can unmoor us... mais »
