Emotions: Not for the Powerful

Posted: 03 Jan 2018 10:05 PM PST

A new international study undertaken at the University of Haifa and in the United States and the Netherlands found that people with high social status are perceived as insincere when they apologize for a transgression. "This perception applies to the world of business and work, and it's reasonable to assume it applies to politicians, too. The more senior they are, the less authentic their emotions are perceived as being," says Dr. Arik Cheshin of the University of Haifa, one of the authors of the study

Did Ancient Irrigation Technology Travel Silk Road?

Posted: 03 Jan 2018 02:05 PM PST

 Using satellite imaging and drone reconnaissance, archaeologists from Washington University in St. Louis have discovered an ancient irrigation system that allowed a farming community in arid northwestern China to raise livestock and cultivate crops in one of the world's driest desert climates.Lost for centuries in the barren foothills of China's Tian Shan Mountains, the ancient farming community remains hidden in plain sight -- appearing little more than an odd scattering of round boulders and sandy ruts when viewed from the ground.
