The Week Contest
This week’s question: Our culture is more sexualized than ever, but new research has found that Americans are having sex significantly less often than they did in the 1990s—perhaps because we’re so distracted by our digital devices. What would be a suitable sociological or medical term to describe this phenomenon?
Last week’s contest: Two Brazilian researchers have created a special recipe as a possible solution for future food shortages in a more populous world: bread made out of ground-up-cockroach flour. If they were to set up a bakery showcasing this unusual ingredient, what would it be called?
