What do you think the opposite sex finds attractive in you? If you're a guy, do you think that women prefer bulging muscles and washboard abs? Or, if you're a woman, maybe you think men prefer skinny girls, like the ones we see on the catwalk? If so, you're likely mistaken.
If the differences between sexes of the same species are so profound and diverse then imagine the differences with other species with whom we share even less genetics, biochemistry and physiology.
While I acknowledge that some women genuinely haven't experienced it, the fact that so many senior women scientists refuse to engage with feminist issues bothers me deeply - not because I'm a blinkered women's rights campaigner, but because equality in science matters to me.
I really support the essence and ambition of the Sunday Assembly. However, Atheism's greatest strength will always be it's intrinsic inclusiveness, honesty, openness and enlightened spirit. This must not be forgot in an attempt to market the Sunday Assembly as a friendly (yet ignorant) song and dance.
Increasing evidence and scientific analysis is showing why these events are associated with human induced climate change. The related impacts are becoming more widespread and complex, affecting society from health issues to agriculture, from transportation to economics, and becoming more severe, long-lasting and costly with increasing frequency.
As technologies become ever more sophisticated, companies have an increasing demand for highly skilled workers. Of course, higher skill levels equate to higher pay so throughout the UK many industries are experiencing widespread salary hikes.
Most maps are static representations of a geographical snapshot in time but the world changes constantly, especially in fast-moving situations such as wars or natural disasters - something I recently explored in a recent documentary for BBC Radio 4, Mapping the Void.
The latest scientific research is now starting to indicate that if the baby is not properly seeded with the mother's own bacteria at birth, then the baby's microbiome, in the words of Rodney R Dietert, Professor of Immunotoxicology at Cornell University, is left "incomplete". Consequently, that baby's immune system may never develop to its full potential, leaving that infant with an increased risk of developing one or more serious diseases later in life.
It's no secret that better collaboration between scientists can lead to new insights and faster discoveries, and the world's richest countries are now using this idea globally to push for a dementia cure.
In similar vein, stories of a health dividend from a "divine connection" - often called prayer - are slowly but surely being woven into the growing debate about the importance of life's immeasurables.
There has been an exceptionally high number of storms in the UK since the start of December. With more rainfall on the way this is already the wettest winter ever recorded, and in line with what is expected to become more common with climate change...
Data aggregators and directories are important roles in the ecosystem. There is so much data out there, that it's hard to keep up with what is available. Additionally, you want to ensure that the data feeds you want can be integrated with your existing data with minimal effort.
Back in the world of politics Ed Miliband has said that 'Britain is sleepwalking to a climate crisis', and while the polar vortex is gripping the States in its icy fingers Senator John Kerry has called climate change a 'weapon of mass destruction' and is due to make a speech that will apparently convince all climate deniers of the truth of the C-word.
"The placebo effect is real, quantifiable and in fact you're doing quite well with an active therapy if you can get as good a response as the placebo response," said Professor Jon Stoessl, director of the Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre at the University of British Columbia.
Having seen pupils struggling to use different types of technology in the classroom, I was intrigued by what the Snooker gaming enables children to do.
The whole of curling worldwide shares one simple yet geologically significant secret. That secret is held in the smoothed blue/grey stones that are pushed down the ice, known as the 'curling stones'.
