Over time, lies may desensitize brain to dishonesty  

The findings of a new scientific study, published on Monday in the journal Nature Neuroscience, show that telling lies may be an acquired trait that starts off with just the odd lie or two and escalates over time until telling lies becomes as natural as breathing.

What is your dog or cat dreaming about?  

You know by their leg movements when your dog or cat is dreaming, but do you ever wonder what your pet is dreaming about?

According to a Harvard expert, your pet is most likely dreaming about you.

Considering how attached dogs and cats are to their human owners, it’s highly likely that they’re “dreaming of your face, your smell or of pleasing or annoying you.”

And when owners learn their dog could be dreaming about them, they are almost without exception overcome with emotion.

Bees learn from each other just like we do  

Bumblebees have a brain about 0.0002 percent the volume of ours. But that doesn’t mean they’re not smart. In fact, there’s a lot of intelligence packed into the infinitesimal brain of a bumblebee.

A recent experiment by scientists from the Queen Mary University of London shows that the “insects possess the essential cognitive elements for cultural transmission.” It’s actually “possible to teach a single bee a new trick, in other words, and a different bee can learn that behavior from her peer.”

Uber plans self-flying drone taxis to beat city traffic  

Believe it or not, “If you summon an Uber in 10 years’ time, you will probably get a car that drives itself. But then again, you may not be travelling in a car at all.”

You may, in fact, be getting to where you’re going in an airborne passenger drone.

According to Jeff Holden, Uber’s head of product, “the company is researching ‘vertical take off and landing’ (VTOL) technology. Instead of the helicopter-style rotor blade drones, VTOL aircraft have fixed wings like planes, enabling them to fly silently, while taking off and landing vertically.
