Roman Theater Discovered in University of Haifa Excavations at Hippos (Sussita)

Surprisingly, the theater is situated outside the city walls and appears to have formed part of a large sanctuary. Accordingly, it may not have functioned as a regular Roman theater, but rather played an important role in religious ceremonies to one of the gods of the sanctuary

Adaptive Music in Broadcast

Art feeds on self-expression, and all artists are constrained by the limitations of their bodies and their tools. Working with artists with disabilities, a team including researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has been creating more accessible tools and instruments that lower barriers to self-expression through the arts. With $100,000 in support from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, the team will extend that access to a wider community.

How “The Big Bang Theory” Portrays Scientists

Love it or hate it, you've probably at least heard of CBS’s hit TV show “The Big Bang Theory,” now in its 10th year of production. But how accurately does it portray scientific culture, and does it break or reinforce stereotypes? A free article in this month’s edition of Physics Today and a companion Inside Science video interview with its author explore these questions.

Not Just for Celebs: Meditation Provides Real-Life Health Benefits

meditation1.jpg

Tina Turner does it. So does Katy Perry, Sting, supermodel Gisele Bundchen and a host of other celebrities. When not strutting the concert stage or cat walk, they’re sometimes grooving to meditation’s benefits. While celebrity isn’t a reason to try meditation, it did make me a bit more curious. These are people who must surely have at least as much stress in their daily lives as many of us, right? As we swing into the holiday season, stress can play as big a role in our lives as exchanging presents and expressions of good cheer. Our minds race with thoughts of travel plans, family gatherings, gift-buying and how to keep it all together without losing it -- both mentally and physically. And that included stressed-out me. According to health experts, stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as heart disease, weight gain and mental health concerns.
