    Having grown up in Massachusetts, I love the idea of warmer winters. A winter where I will not have a $150 heating bill? A winter where I will not need to shovel for hours when it snows?

    Formal sciences are language disciplines concerned with formal systems, such as logic, mathematics, statistics, theoretical computer science, information theory, game theory, systems theory, decision theory, and theoretical linguistics.Whereas the natural sciences and social sciences seek to characterize physical systems and social systems respectively using empirical methods, the formal sciences are language tools concerned with characterizing abstract structures described by sign systems. The formal sciences aid the natural sciences by providing information about the structures the latter use to describe the world, and what inferences may be made about them.

    In computer engineering, computer architecture is a set of rules and methods that describe the functionality, organization, and implementation of computer systems. Some definitions of architecture define it as describing the capabilities and programming model of a computer but not a particular implementation. In other definitions computer architecture involves instruction set architecture design, microarchitecture design, logic design, and implementation.

    The reason grandparents get up at dawn and teenagers stay awake into the wee hours might be related to how ancient humans guarded their settlements, New Scientist reports. For 20 days, anthropologists monitored sleep patterns in the Hadza, hunter-gatherers who live in groups of about 30 individuals in modern-day Tanzania.

    The major rift in the Larsen C ice shelf pictured in July 2017.

    Climate change has a new poster child: a massive iceberg the size of Delaware -- one of the largest ever recorded – that early this week calved off Larsen C, the largest remaining ice shelf off the Antarctic Peninsula, scientists announced today. Although researchers cannot explicitly connect the calving event to warming air or water, those monitoring the event are now concerned that the entire shelf, after shedding more than 12% of its area, could follow the fate of its more northern peers, Larsen A and B, which collapsed entirely in 1995 and 2002, respectively.
