The Truth About Sex Differences - By David P Schmitt Ph.D

It's time for a grown-up conversation about sex. No, not that one. The other one, about the minds of men and women. Converging lines of empirical evidence—from developmental neuroscience, medical genetics, evolutionary biology, cross-cultural psychology, and new studies of transsexuality—along with our evolutionary heritage, all point to the same conclusion: There are psychological differences between men and women. And they affect matters as trivial as sensitivity to smelly socks and as significant as susceptibility to disorders such as depression and autism.

The dramatic physical and behavioral differences between men and women, including strength and size, pubertal timing, consistent patterns around the world of hunting versus gathering and childrearing, as well as pervasive differences in risk-taking, mortality, and reproductive requirements, attest to the likelihood that evolution sculpted adaptations into men and women that make us somewhat different creatures. Psychologically, this sculpting by evolution has left men and women with particular approaches to life and love built upon a common core of human nature. 
Ironically, just as the evidence is mounting that psychological sex differences are real, denial of differences has become rampant. Attempts at respectful and productive conversations about biological sex differences often end with name-calling (genetic determinist!) or outright cancellation of events—not to mention the very public firing of a Google software engineer for writing a memo on the topic. 
One reason that conversations about sex differences run aground is the widespread lack of foundational knowledge about sex and gender. Then there's the huge array of influences, from both inside and out, that shape all our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Still, denying men's and women's different psychologies is not merely a denial of reality; it has serious health consequences for significant segments of the population.

Azure IoT Edge: What’s in it for partners?

For the last decade, one of the most significant topics in technology has been the role of the cloud itself, and discussion is often framed around which workloads and technology should be deployed and managed locally. And this decision is usually seen as a binary. You can pick cloud or local, but not both. But the truth is often in the middle, and today, the possibilities are more varied. The question today is, how does a company use local and cloud resources to achieve great efficiency, impact, and better overall value?

The new generation of IoT solutions will take advantage of both cloud and the edge to analyze and immediately respond to mission-critical data locally, while sending the data for further processing (such as training machine learning models) to the cloud. While edge computing has historically been concentrated in manufacturing and industrial settings, it is now making an impact in non-traditional sectors.

"Toshiba’s fundraising news eliminates the risk of Toshiba being delisted said Takatoshi

Tokyo — Toshiba’s plan to raise about $5.4bn through a sale of new shares will help it avoid a delisting, but will also mean more than 30 overseas investors, including activist funds, will own 35% of the embattled conglomerate.

The move, decided at a board meeting on Sunday, will allow Toshiba to pay off billions of dollars in liabilities at its bankrupt US nuclear power business, Westinghouse.

3 Ear-Wax Removal Horror Stories Will Make You Cringe

Got an ear itch? Excessive ear wax? Got a cotton swab? Problem solved, right? Wrong. "People should absolutely not stick Q-tips inside their ears," says Arnold Henry, M.D., and ear, nose, and throat doc at Indiana University Health. First, it doesn't work the way you think it does. Instead of cleaning out ear wax, it's just pushing most of the wax further down into your ear where it can build up, create an infection, and even temporarily decrease your hearing, he explains. Not only that but every time you stick something into your ear canal—be it a cotton swab, a bobby pin, a pen cap or any of the other popular "ear cleaning" hacks—you risk puncturing your ear drum, he says, adding that punctured ear drums are excruciatingly painful and can lead to infections and even deafness.

But, let's be honest:
