Uh-oh. Turns out that BPA, which has long been known as an endocrine disrupter associated with everything from gestational abnormalities to cancer to diabetes and obesity, is in our bodies in much higher levels than thought. The trouble is regulatory: The FDA has repeatedly determined that human exposure to BPA is low, and therefore safe. (A recent FDA report stated that “BPA is safe at the current levels occurring in foods.”) Patricia Hunt, a researcher at Washington State University, says these regulations may be “based on inaccurate measurements.” Hunt and colleagues developed a more accurate way of measuring BPA in the body by directly measuring BPA metabolites in urine. They found levels of BPA up to 44 times those used as the basis for FDA regulations, based on indirect measurements. The researchers found this alarming, and say that regulations for parabens, benzophenone, triclosan, and phthalates may also be based … [Read more...] about Stop using plastic cups because BPA exposure may be much worse than we thought

They are the one feature on the venture capitalist’s handsome, square-jawed 84-year-old face that give away his age; they’re also a mark of the Draper gene pool, an optometric family crest. Bill’s son, Tim, also a venture capitalist, has similarly unruly patches. And Tim’s sons, Adam and Billy, both entrepreneurs, have a tamer twentysomething variation. “Those are some power brows,” Adam says of his dad’s and granddad’s facial hair. “You meet them and you just look at their brows for a little bit–they’re like visors.” advertisement advertisement Bill has the air of a vintage businessman. Dressed in a camel-hued sports coat and burgundy dress shoes, he looks like the kind of man who wouldn’t dare enter an elevator … [Read more...] about Can VCs Be Bred?

It’s just before 9 a.m. on an overcast February morning. About 60 fifth graders at a Harlem charter school have just filed into a multipurpose room to hear architect Phil Freelon talk about his career-defining work on the National Museum of African American History and Culture, or NMAAHC, in Washington, D.C., the universally celebrated newest addition to the Smithsonian Institution. But before he gets to his lesson about the design—a brilliant, bronze-hued building that alights the Mall like a shining crown—he warms up the crowd by letting them in on a secret: He once played drums in a band with his brother, Gregory Freelon, a teacher at the school. The room’s energy perks up as students whisper; Phil has instantly connected to each of them. Now it’s time for the meatier part of his talk. advertisement advertisement Eager hands shoot into the air. “Art is a subject of creativity,” a boy says. “It’s expressing … [Read more...] about America’s Humanitarian Architect
Before the most recent flight I took from JFK to my hometown, a 90-minute hop across the state of New York, I asked the flight attendant for a drink. “Do you need a double?” he asked, after seeing my likely nervous-looking face. A few minutes later he brought me a plastic cup filled with Johnny Walker wrapped in a napkin, free of charge. advertisement advertisement I have an irrational fear of flying that I usually manage with self-medication, an expensive and not always convenient remedy–gulping down shots at 8 a.m. isn’t exactly ideal. So when I heard of a new (free) app that promises “to relax anxious passengers” from Japan’s All Nippon Airways, it sounded like a healthier and more appealing way to handle my flying anxiety. But can an app really cure a deep, nonsensical phobia? Taking advantage of the recently relaxed FAA regulations on in-flight cell phone use, various airlines and third parties have developed apps catering to the … [Read more...] about Can An App Cure Your Fear Of Flying?
