A week of links


Jason Collins

Links this week:

  1. There have been some strong reactions to the Edge piece on Napoleon Chagnon (I pointed it out last week, and if you haven’t yet, give it a look). Some are entertaining, although most are not particularly enlightening. Jason Anstrosio goes the epigenetics maneuver and Stephen Corry pins death rates among ancient hunters on hunting accidents.

  2. If you’re risk averse, don’t do science - become an actuary.

  3. The Faroe Islands Health Ministry plans to genetically sequence everyone on the island who wants it.

  4. Overview of the Flynn effect (unfortunately gated if you don’t have journal access).

  5. George Monbiot on rewilding (audio download)
