Criticism of library contents continues

While some area Republicans continue to push for certain materials to be removed from area libraries, staff maintain that libraries must include books on all topics — including those that some deem controversial or objectionable. “The library can’t discriminate,” said CLN Director Amy Rodda. “We have books on all viewpoints.” At a meeting of the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans on Thursday, Marianna Cochran led a presentation about what she called “toxic” books available to children and teens through the Community Library Network.

Everyday physics, and your own particle accelerator

Everyday physics, and your own particle accelerator

The most high-profile physics subfield is high-energy and particle physics, where physicists try to break down atoms to find the smallest possible ingredients that make up everything — by literally ramming stuff together as fast as they can with particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest in Switzerland. Why does this matter? Breaking things down is how we learned what goes on inside atoms, and how electrons work. That knowledge underpins all modern electronics as well as nuclear technology. Plus, almost every one of us has a particle accelerator at home: a microwave, or an old-style CRT TV — the kind used before LCD became mainstream.

ANALYSIS: A social media danger to society

Part four: Manipulating behavior

The closed loop aspect of people being more accepting to views that are similar to their own than contrary ideas can lead to walled-off minds. Just like the 18th century pioneer who was not prone to considering any beliefs but his own. Such a padlocked mind often results in echo chambers: The beliefs of a group, churned inside but not outside this group, are further amplified and reinforced. Because the information is cloistered from rebuttal, even criticism, most of us are prone to seek out information that reinforces our existing views. Without encountering opposing views, these mental echo chambers can increase social and political polarization and extremism. That is the conclusion of many people who study human behavior.
