Global Consciousness Project The Global Consciousness Project (GCP, also called the EGG Project) is a parapsychology experiment begun in 1998 as an attempt to detect possible interactions of "global consciousness" with physical systems. The project monitors a geographically distributed network of hardware random number generators in a bid to identify anomalous outputs that correlate with widespread emotional responses to sets of world events, or periods of focused attention by large numbers of people.[1][non-primary source needed] The GCP is privately funded through the Institute of Noetic Sciences[2][non-primary source needed] and describes itself as an international collaboration of about 100 research scientists and engineers.

Madison Ave. Has Growing Role In the Business of Drug Research Dentists leafing through The Journal of the American Dental Association last May found a study concluding that a new drug called Bextra offered relief from one of their patients' worst nightmares -- the acute pain that follows dental surgery. Federal regulators had rejected that conclusion only six months before, leaving Bextra's marketers, Pharmacia and Pfizer, hard pressed to sell it as an advance over Celebrex, their earlier entry in a crowded market for pain drugs. The new study helped light a fire under Bextra. Its sales soared 60 percent over the three months that followed, according to industry data. But the research was not conducted by academics.

photo - New York City's Gentrification Curbed was founded a decade ago as a site that would chronicle real estate and neighborhood changes, two subjects that are inextricably intertwined. And boy, have we ever, tracking the topic with self-proclaimed obsessiveness and attention to minute detail. It's easy to capture the drastic evolution in areas like the Lower East Side, the East Village, the Meatpacking District, and Tribeca in photos; comparing historic images and modern-day shots truly does lay bare what's gone and what's replaced it. But as the term "gentrification" turns 50, we figured it was time to sit back and take stock on a more microscopic, anecdotal level.

Snapshots of Tribeca’s Gentrification A couple of weeks ago, Curbed made a request: We’re asking neighborhood experts to tell us, in 100-150 words, about a memory or moment or instance that personified gentrification. The more concrete the better: when a local diner made way for yet another Starbucks? A vacant lot got an expensive rental building? A dive bar now houses a place with $15 cocktails?
