To disengage from current affairs, though, is still mainly to court accusations of selfishness and unexamined social advantage. A year ago, the New York Times profiled Erik Hagerman, an Ohio man who had imposed a news blackout on himself since the 2016 election, even going so far as to pipe white noise into his ears while visiting his local coffee shop, to drown out talk of Trump. The article went viral – of course it did – and Hagerman was widely met with moralising scorn.

It turned out that people were not so rational, and in fact the reverse was true: it was quite easy to persuade people to give more money if you moved them emotionally, but persuading them to abandon causes that they had believed in for years was very hard. It was easier for him to convert logical types who had never thought much about charity than it was to change the minds of longtime do-gooders. When Ord talked about his ideas in public, he tried to avoid imposing guilt – he believed that making people feel guilty did not get you anywhere. He told people instead that giving away money was an exciting … [Read more...] about Extreme altruism: should you care for strangers at the expense of your family?
The artificial eyeball creates images by means of an assortment of tiny sensors that mirror the light-detecting photoreceptor cells of its natural counterpart. These are packed into a membrane of aluminium and tungsten that is shaped into a half sphere — mimicking a retina … [Read more...] about Bionic eye that is as sensitive as human retina could give millions of people the chance to see again and will be available in just five years
