Distractions tempt us at every turn, from an ever-growing library of Netflix titles to video games (Animal Crossing is my current vice) to all of the other far more tantalizing things we could be doing instead of doing what actually needs to be done.

Cern residency programme unites artists and physicists Cern has launched a programme that aims to bring together artists and physicists at its laboratory near Geneva. Collide@Cern -- which falls into a wider Cern policy for engaging with the arts called Great Arts for Great Science -- is a three-month residency programme for artists to be mentored by leading scientists, supported by a stipend of €10,000. The head of Cern's arts programme, Ariane Koek, said: "The arts touch the parts that science alone cannot reach and vice versa. Collide@Cern gives Cern, artists and scientists the opportunity to engage in creative collisions that can occur when these two areas of human creativity and ingenuity come together." The first part of the scheme -- Prix Ars Electronica -- was launched in August at digital arts festival Ars Electronica. The chosen artist will spend two months at Cern and then one month at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, the festival's studio space.

The program I used to write it was created by Microsoft, started by the college dropouts Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught It's a typical scene: a few minutes before 11:00 on a Tuesday morning and about 200 sleepy-looking college students are taking their seats in a large lecture hall - chatting, laughing, calling out to each other across the aisles. Class begins with a big "shhhh" from the instructor. This is an introductory chemistry class at a state university. For the next hour and 15 minutes, the instructor will lecture and the students will take notes.
