Second Issue: Happiness by Government

The June issue of Miller-McCune magazine went live today at Miller-McCune.com. Some of the better stories:

— Livingston Award finalist Ryan Blitstein on well-being research and whether the government can use it to make us, yes, happy.

— AAAS award-winner Michelle Nijhuis on the fight against business-funded campaigns to manufacture scientific doubt where little exists. (Think tobacco, climate change, asbestos, so on.)

Stanford‘s Norman Nie asks whether education makes you smarter and comes down, in a brilliantly qualified way, on the side of “no.”

— I take off from the British best-seller Flat Earth News to ask (and partly answer) the age-old question: Why are the news media so repetitive and dumb?
