However, we need to address these issues in a way that preserves the sexual liberties of adults, adolescents and yes, kids, too. Abramson offers his ideas on how to meet both of these goals.

This CARTA symposium addresses the question of how human language came to have the kind of structure it has today, focusing on three sources of evidence. One source, which is discussed in these three talks, concerns neuroscientific investigations of functional specialization for language in the human brain and its dependence on the linguistic input the language learner gets during cognitive development. Evelina Fedorenko (Massachusetts General Hospital) begins with an examination of Specialization for Language in the Human Brain, followed by Rachel Mayberry (UC San Diego) on How the Environment Shapes Language in the Brain, and Edward Chang (UC San Francisco) on Neuroscience of Speech Perception and Speech Production.

Our solar system isn't the only one with planets revolving around a star. More than 2,000 such exoplanets have been discovered since the early 1990s. Astronomers at the Institute of Planetary Research at the German Aerospace Center are searching for a "second earth" -- a rocky planet that might show traces of life. But it's hard to distinguish such planets from gas planets. In 2024 the satellite mission PLATO with its 34 telescopes may bring us new knowledge.
