Does soil really affect wine's flavour?
“Soil, not grapes, is the latest must-know when choosing a wine,” Bloomberg has proclaimed. Meanwhile, wine writer Alice Feiring has published a book which helps drinkers choose their tipple by “looking at the source: the ground in which it grows”. And there are now restaurants with wine lists organised not by grape, wine style or country of origin, but by vineyard geology. The idea that a vineyard’s ground is important for wine took hold in the Middle Ages when, legend has it, Burgundian monks tasted the soils to find which would give the best tasting wine. After all, the vines wer... (Click Here To Read More)

Why Europe's Astronauts are learning Chinese
It was not what Matthias Maurer was expecting when he signed up for sea survival training with Chinese astronauts. “It was so nice and relaxed,” says the German European Space Agency (Esa) astronaut. “I was floating there in the life raft, looking up at the sky – I only needed some music and it would have given me a real Hawaii holiday feeling.” The exercise took place last year at a newly built training centre near the coastal city of Yantai, around an hour’s flight south-east of Beijing. For two weeks, Maurer and fellow Esa astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti, lived and worked al... (Click Here To Read More)

According to some psychologists, this uncomfortable truth constantly lurks in the back of our minds and ultimately drives everything we do, from choosing to attend church, eat vegetables and go to the gym to motivating us to have children, write books and create companies. For healthy people, death usually lurks in the back of our minds, exerting its influence on a subconscious level. “M... (Click Here To Read More)

Does the way you speak reveal how much you earn?
Research shows that high-earning CEOs speak a certain way – what does your own voice say about your own income? Give a firm handshake. Make eye contact. Remember people’s names. Our working lives have long been filled with behaviours that supposedly make you more successful, build more contacts or help you earn more money. But what about the way we speak? Do our voices affect our income? Can we change our speaking patterns to be more successful? And in what ways are we unfairly biased against certain types of voices? http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20180605-does-the... (Click Here To Read More)

Who Built the Egyptian Pyramids? Slaves?
The life of a pyramid builder certainly wasn’t easy—skeletons of workers commonly show signs of arthritis and other ailments—but evidence suggests that the massive tombs were built not by slaves but by paid laborers. These ancient construction workers were a mix of skilled artisans and temporary hands, and some appear to have taken great pride in their craft. Graffiti found near the monuments suggests they often assigned humorous names to their crews like the “Drunkards of Menkaure” or the “Friends of Khufu.” The idea that slaves built the pyramids at the crack of a whip was firs...
