Alice Boman - What

I got the Swedish single through my inbox, but I hadn’t yet watched this brand new video that corresponds with it. It’s easy to lose it because of the slow, easy pace of the song, but the power is more evident here in the visual.

Her II EP comes out on June 2nd with via Adrian Recordings in Scandinavia, Happy Death throughout the rest of Europe, and June 3 The Control Group in North America. Video made by Studio Pop.

Afraid of math? That may be because for some, facing math is physically painful

For many people the thought of these kinds of problems is horrible. Painful, even. A study by psychologists Ian Lyon and Sian Beilock has shown that that’s not hyperbole — some people who dislike math do so because the thought of working out things with numbers is experientially similar to physical pain. For people with “high levels of mathematics-anxiety” (HMAs), maths hurts. […]
Since it’s the anticipation of mathematics that seems to get people the most, rather than the actual sums themselves, it might be worth investigating whether there’s a different way of teaching maths in schools. It could also mean taking the time to simplify the process for returning a tax return, for example. Governments often wring their hands over how many adults are effectively mathematically illiterate after leaving school, but maybe it’s not their fault they couldn’t concentrate in class. They might well have just been scared of the number seven (because, after all, seven ate nine).

I always knew that mathematicians were masochists…
