Sulfur Hexafluoride
It’s not magic, kiddo. It’s science! Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is a colorless, odorless gas that is more dense than air at 6.12 g/L (at sea level). This density is why you can pour it into a glass container and float a light-weight aluminum “boat” on its gas “sea.” Watch this demonstration at the Physikshow of the University of Bonn! (0:30)

"The A-Bomb Won't Do What You Think!": An Argument Against Reliance on Nuclear Weapons
For four years after the U.S. dropped atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II, America held a monopoly on the production of atomic weapons. During this period, debate centering on the use of nuclear bombs in future wars proliferated among government officials, scientists, religious leaders, and in the popular press. In the following article from Collier's, former Navy lieutenant commander William H. Hessler, using data from the Strategic Bombing Survey, argued that saturation bo

What's Flu Got To Do With It? The payoff of influenza studies for medical demography. We review some of the major features of influenza mortality in the United States, 1959-2007, the period in which the most detailed data are available. Focus is on two areas, first, classification robustness across influenza and pneumonia over time. Second, we estimate 2-parameter Gompetrz models of winter pneumonia and influenza (P+I) mortality. We find that Gompertz is a good parameterization of P+I mortality

Les enjeux de l’individualisme (audio)

Jusque dans les années 60, le modèle d’intégration sociale dominant était un modèle « corporatiste » qui assurait une place, une position garantie à chaque individu au sein de la société. Chacun était alors acteur du système, chacun était à sa place: le médecin, l’ouvrier, la femme au foyer…

Aujourd’hui cet idéal de stabilité est mis à mal: les catégories sociales sont bousculées (les ouvriers sont moins nombreux, les femmes travaillent de plus en plus),
