Farmers actually work more than hunter-gatherers, have less leisure time

Toil all day, very little pay.

Time flies as we age because our brains get bigger and less efficient, a new paper proposes

‘Clock time’ is not the same as ‘mind time’.

Child and teen obesity on the rise as they’re consuming too much… screen time

“Overall screen time seems to be increasing — if portable devices are allowing for more mobility, this has not reduced overall sedentary time nor risk of obesity,” says Tracie A. Barnett, one of the paper’s authors.

You’re doing fun activities wrong — but a new study reveals how to do them right

Stay flexible!

It takes about 200 hours with someone to turn them into a best friend, new study shows

Making new friends take time. A new study quantified how long it takes, on average, for an acquaintance to climb our social circle.

You can’t chase your happiness and have it too — you must let it come to you

Chasing happiness might be what’s pushing it away.

Who do you spend most of your time with? The answer might surprise you

Birds of one feather flock together.

Each language you speak in alters your perception of time, study finds

The pen is mightier than the clock too, it seems.

Time travel is proven possible — but we’ll likely never be able to build the machine, author says

He named his machine the TARDIS — bonus points for that.

The Earth is spinning slower, making the days longer and longer

Tick tock.

Consciousness comes in “slices” roughly 400 milliseconds long

This is the first time a two-stage model has been proposed for how consciousness arises, and it offers a more complete picture than the purely continuous or discrete models. It also provides useful insight into the the way our brain processes time and relates it to our perception of the world.

All of 2015’s weather, in a stunning 4K time-lapse video.

The European Meteorological Satellite Organization (EUMETSAT) in collaboration with the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a time-lapse 4K video of the weather of 2015 — and it’s awesome.

Is the modern life really busier? Not really, Oxford lab finds out

Armed with almost 1 million diary entries, an Oxford-based laboratory is trying to figure out why modern life seems so hectic.

Bacteria growth limited by time, not only concentration. Revises 1950’s Alan Turing theory

How do organs such as the heart or kidneys know when to stop growing? A number of theories have been proposed to answer this, the most entrenched of which dating back fromĀ 1952, when the infamous Alan Turing used math to show how biological cell patterns form and how these knew when to stop division. Turing envisioned that the cells knew

Nuclear clocks set to become most accurate timekeepers on Earth. Only a fraction of a second lost for 14 billion years

Atomic clocks are the current most accurate time and frequency standards, capable of operating with an uncertity of only a second in millions of years. A new research currently in the work by scientistĀ from the University of New South Wales seeks to track time with an unprecedented accuracy of a mere 20th a second in 14 billion years, 100 times

Japan Earthquake causes Earth axis to tilt – shortens day!

As a consequence of last Friday’s devastating earthquake near the coast of Japan, the nation’s most powerful recorded earthquake to date actually since it began archiving results in the late 1800, scientists have assessed that the Earth axis has tilted by a few inches and that the chronological day has been shortened by a millionth of a second. The link

Obtaining 2 dimensional time – fact or fiction?

For almost a century, scientists have been trying to figure out what’s good and what’s bad about Einstein’s vision of the universe. Blending the traditional view of physics with the bizarre almost impossible to understand world of quantum physics is no easy task – for anybody. It’s due to our current understanding of these phenomena that we believe it is
