Milgram Experiment

In the early 1960s psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted what may be the most important experiment ever done on human obedience to authority. He was interested in a dilemma that has fascinated psychologists throughout history: the question of whether it was possible for ordinary people to be induced by malevolent authority to abandon their moral instincts and obey orders.

In 1961, shortly after the Nuremberg War Criminal trials of World War II genocidal murderers like Adolf Eichmann, Milgram began conducting experiments that were designed to answer this question. Using a series of newspaper ads, Milgram recruited men from all walks of life and paid them $4.50 at the start of the experiment, claiming that they were part of a study that was focused on memory and learning.

During the experiment, the participants acted as “teachers” who were instructed to press one of three shock switches whenever they believed that the “learner” in another room was wrong. As the voltage increased, the teacher became more uncomfortable and hesitant to administer the shocks. Some teachers paused and questioned the experiment, some even said they would refund their money for participating.

However, most of them kept delivering shocks to the confederate, though many were exhibiting signs of nervous laughter and trembling. Some also displayed the classic emotional responses of fear, disgust and anger.

After the first few shocks, however, many of the participants were able to overcome their discomfort and began to deliver the maximum 450-volt shock. They started to show symptoms of stress, such as stuttering, biting their lips, groaning, digging their fingernails into their skin and sweating.

Then, some participants argued with the experimenter and tried to find ways to get out of the situation. Some participants even deceived the experimenter by pretending that they wanted to continue the experiment.

The results of the Milgram Experiment, which has remained a controversial issue, reveal that it is possible for ordinary people to be influenced by powerful authority and to become obedient without giving any thought to their own morals or values. Despite these findings, the United States is often seen as a nation of individuals who value autonomy and independence.

The Earth Will Spin Around

The Earth is in a constant state of motion, revolving around the Sun, and it is constantly moving through space. This is what causes our planet to spin on its axis, and it also explains why we experience day and night.

It is also why our planet is a sphere. In order to explain how the Earth’s axis moves, Kepler’s laws of planetary motion have been established. These laws show that the Earth’s ellipses have an eccentricity of about 0.017, which is about equal to the radius of the Earth.

As a result, the Earth’s surface reaches an average speed of about 1,000 miles per hour on its axis, or orbit. This speed is caused by the Coriolis force which forces the Earth to move in a curved orbit as it rotates on its axis.

If the Earth stopped spinning, gravity would be stronger and everything would fall off of it, including people, buildings and trees. If this happened, it would be a very bad thing.

This would cause things to be swept off the land and into space, as well as cause our planet to have a much more chaotic and dangerous atmosphere. Thankfully, it’s not very likely that this will ever happen.

Scientists are not sure exactly how the Earth’s inner core rotates, but it does have a unique way of doing it. This is due to a precession that has been going on for 26,000 years, which causes the axis of the Earth to slowly wobble.

The researchers are able to monitor the rotation of the Earth’s core with seismic waves, which are created when earthquakes hit the ground. These waves can travel deep into the Earth’s interior and through the core.

Some of these waves can be detected in different ways from other parts of the Earth, which means that scientists can track how the core is rotating. The research suggests that the inner core is not spinning the same as the rest of the planet, and it might be rotating in a different direction.

The researchers say that this is a normal fluctuation that people won’t notice and won’t be cause for concern, but it does raise some questions about our place in the universe. It’s also a question about the way time works, since it’s very likely that our clocks will have to adjust in a few billion years.

An Anthem From The 80’s

The ’80s was a decade full of zany excess, and it gave us a lot of memorable songs. But it was also a time when many of the world’s most enduring artists emerged, rewriting the rules of music forever.

Talking Heads’ ‘Speaking in Tongues’ was a pop masterpiece that has stood the test of time, thanks to tingling synth notes and Tina Weymouth’s pulsating bassline. It was a perfect song to listen to on a summer evening and one that still feels fresh in 2018.

Culture Club’s ‘Karma Chameleon’ is another great anthem from the ’80s, a sun-drenched track that is just as infectious now as it was back then. The lyrics speak to the power of a harmonica line and the band’s ability to turn up the volume in their live shows, proving that despite being a pop act Culture Club can be just as evocative as Boy George or the Cure.

Patti Smith’s ‘Dream of Life’ might not have been as big a hit as it would have been in the day, but its best single is arguably ‘People Have The Power’, a hallucinatory fusion of Blakean poetry and fist-pumping workers’ anthem. It’s an unlikely earworm that could have been destined for obscurity, but covers by the likes of R.E.M and U2 have helped to elevate it into one of the era’s most iconic tracks.

Depeche Mode began the ’80s as adorably puppyish synthpoppers, but by the time they reached 1985 their songs had become more serious, taking furious aim at ’80s greed culture with an album-defining track like ‘Everything Counts’. It’s an incredibly moving anthem, but it’s also an important moment in the band’s career as a whole: they’d go on to write some of the greatest albums of the era, including ‘Personal Jesus’.

In the ’80s, there was so much going on, it was hard to keep up with it all. But if you’re looking for a song that sums up the era in one concise, powerful stroke, look no further than this 1985 ode to London street life.
