Looking Beyond the Female Firsts of Science History | Science

Stamped in relief on the back of the heavy gold medal given to Nobel Prize recipients in the sciences is the image of two women. One, bare-breasted and holding a cornucopia, represents Nature. Pulling back her veil and bearing a torch of knowledge is Science, who reveals Nature and illuminates her secrets. It is an allegory as old as science itself, drawn from even older representation traditions, and it adorns the most prestigious prize in science as a reminder of the high ideals of discovery and truth. But it is an image that obscures more than it illuminates.

Google On Internationalization & Languages SEO

Lidia Infante asked Google’s John Mueller an excellent question on international SEO. She asked why do you think each country and language site needs a different approach to success in SEO? Is it about Google’s understanding of languages or more about user behavior changes with search?

Here is her question “In my experience, each country/language needs a different approach to succeed in SEO. Is it because Google’s semantic understanding changes, because the search landscape is different or because the users behave differently?”

John Mueller said it is likely both but he would give more weight to the user side. He

The Rise of Shareholder Politics

When asked whether public corporations should be legally forced to disclose their political donations, Gary Gensler, President Joe Biden’s pick for chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission, said that the decision should be based on what investors want. To an outsider, this might sound like an evasive answer, in the grand tradition of confirmation hearings. The truth is that for the future chair of the SEC to pledge to pay attention to investors should be no surprise.

But what investors want is sometimes surprising. On May 26, for example, shareholders of Chevron voted 61 percent in favor of a

This is the second story in a series of stories on the history of gasoline. So far, Jalopnik’s tech coverage has been focused primarily on the emergence, or reemergence of the electric vehicle. One of the primary arguments levied against electric cars and electric charging infrastructure has been that bringing both into the mainstream would take significant investment from private and public actors, and that this has not generally been politically palatable in the United States. In this ten part series (here is the prelude from last week), award-winning journalist Jamie Kitman will lay out how American corporate

How the Gaza war affected Palestinian politics | Israel-Palestine conflict

For many Palestinians it was clear that the recent war in Gaza was going to inevitably affect the Palestinian political scene. After all, war is an extension of politics.

The military escalation in Gaza was triggered by events in Jerusalem, where Israeli forces repeatedly stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque and were preparing to expel yet another group of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood. As anger among the Palestinians simmered and protests repeatedly broke out, violently suppressed by the occupation forces, the Palestinian Authority (PA) only made feeble statements that no one paid attention to.

The Arab world issued verbal condemnations
