My latest Skeptical Inquirer column, “The Parable of the Power Pose and How to
Reverse It,” is up on the SI website. I recount the rise and fall of power posing and also describe a new open science initiative aimed at strengthening research. If these new methods are adopted, they should produce results that are more trustworthy and less likely to be overturned.
The January/February 2017 print issue of Skeptical Inquirer is on news stands now, including my column “Consensus: Can Two Hundred Scientists be Wrong?” This is the print version of an article I wrote online back in September. In the back pages, I also provide some pithy responses to letters sent in by readers.
Finally, if anyone is spending the holidays in the Boston area and missed out on seeing me on the WCVB TV program Chronicle last October, you have another chance on Wednesday, December 28. The Chronicle segment “Are You Superstitious?” will air again on that date at 7:30 PM on ABC 5. Of course, no matter where you live, you can see a video of that show any time you want by simply clicking here.
That’s all for now. Have a happy and safe holiday season.
