4. Why do we prefer eating sweet things?

Is the "sweet tooth" real? The answer may surprise you. Humans vary in their preference towards sweet things; some of us dislike them while others may as well be addicted. But for those of us who have a tendency towards sweetness, why do we like what we like? We are hardly limited by type; our preference spans across both food and drinks, including candy, desserts, fruits, sodas, and even alcoholic beverages.

18. Darra Goldstein on the history of sugar

Sugar has had an important hand in many facets of history, not all of it fun and games (but certainly not all of it dreary, either). Did you know fudge played a huge part in American women's college education? or that slavery in sugar plantations was rampant? We asked Darra Goldstein a number of questions on sugar and its history, unearthing the good, the bad, and everything in between.

19. Heroes Throw Down in the New Batman v Superman Trailer

Over the weekend, a new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was unveiled at Comic-Con International. The video embedded above offers glimpses of stars Henry Cavill as Superman (a.k.a. Clark Kent), Ben Affleck as Batman (a.k.a. Bruce Wayne), and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (a.k.a. Diana Prince).

This movie, helmed by filmmaker Zack Snyder, will hit theaters on March 25, 2016. Click on this link to watch the teaser trailer.

Even though this adaptation hasn’t been released yet, the executives at DC Comics have been busy developing plans for future film projects. Deadline reports that Affleck intends to collaborate with Geoff Johns on a script for a stand-alone Batman movie. Once they complete this task, production will move forward with Affleck serving as the director and taking on the lead role. (via Rolling Stone)

20. New Heroes: Reborn Trailer Features the Return of Original Series Stars

“Memories are funny things.  The good ones fill our lives with meaning— with context, with clarity…but other memories can deceive.  The ones that make you believe you know the truth— those are the dangerous ones.  When you look back at the decisions you’ve made in your life, the one thing you don’t wanna feel is regret.”

— Noah Bennet

In a cryptic opening statement that summarizes series creator Tim Kring’s entire relationship with the Heroes franchise, Jack Coleman aka Noah Bennet introduces the world of Heroes: Reborn.  This brave new world is different than the one we left at the end of Heroes‘ final season in 2010, but will feel incredibly familiar to those that stuck around until the end of the original series:

The fresh faces of the 13 episode mini-series are dwarfed in this new footage by the return of original series regulars including Sendhil Ramamurthy as Mohinder Suresh, Cristine Rose as Angela Petrelli, Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman, Jimmy Jean-Louis as The Haitian, and Noah Gray-Cabey as Micah Sanders.

It looks like the plot is going to echo some old X-Men storylines, with the government hunting down meta-humans.  The cheese-factor of the series looks like it will be back in full force, as the trailer features an awful lot of samurai and even an act-into-the-camera moment from an unnamed character whose ability seems to be controlling auroras…how that actually affects the world in any way has yet to be seen.

Heroes: Reborn debuts this fall.

21. Suicide Squad’s Sizzle Reel in Glorious 1080p!

With a huge frown on their collective entity’s face and a couple of stiletto-wearing foot stomps to boot, Warner Bros. has released an official copy of the Suicide Squad sizzle reel that leaked after being shown at a panel during SDCC.  The trailer comes with a statement:

“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”
– Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures

Deadline and a few other outlets have speculated that the leak of Suicide Squad and Deadpool footage meant exclusively for SDCC attendees could mean the end of the media practice.  Deadline characterizes this type of footage as a “gift,” and it is.  However, the reality of the internet is that information can be disseminated far and wide at increasingly rapid speeds.  There’s no way to stop this sort of thing from happening in the future, and not showing any promotional material at all seems like an emotionally driven reaction that ultimately hurts all parties, movie studios like Warner Bros. included.

It doesn’t make sense for companies to fight the future.  There’s plenty of room for innovation left in the internet.  Corporations simply need to embrace that.

22. Who was Jonas Salk?

Most revered for his work on the polio vaccine, Jonas Salk was praised by the mainstream media but still struggled to earn the respect and adoration of the medical community. Accused of abusing the spotlight and giving little credit to fellow researchers, he arguably become more of an outcast than a "knight in a white coat." Even so, Salk continued to make strides in the medical community, ultimately leaving behind a legacy larger than the criticism that had always threatened to overshadow his career.
