2017-09-22T14:49:17+00:00

Consider the amount of standard daily doses of opioids consumed in Japan. And then double it. And then double it again. And then double it again. And then double it again. And then double it a fifth time. That would make Japan No. 2 in the world, behind the United States.

Lessons learned from neuroscience experiments run on radicalized people in Spain.

2017-09-21T18:38:02+00:00

A fun, interesting profile of Max Maxey, Chance the Rapper's onstage translator for deaf and hard-of-hearing hip-hop fans (seen above signing Warren G's "Regulate").

Maxey's ASL interpretation is an explosive, code-switching mishmash of textbook American Sign Language, pantomime, and makeshift signs he's cobbled together for slang words native to hip-hop ("molly," for example, combines gestures for "pill" and "sex"); the way he signs is as worldly and wry and improvisational as he is.
