The day in science:

  • Power does not corrupt. In fact, if we think we’re powerful, we’re actually better at our jobs. “The study suggests that people at the bottom of the workplace totem pole don’t end up there for lack of ability, but rather that being low and powerless in a hierarchy leads to more mistakes.” (Time)
  • Food of the future: Meat that’s grown in a lab. But will you eat it? (NPR)
  • Cellphones may harm unborn babies. Or maybe not. (ABC)
