The final section of the paper, Section 4, reviews the evidence for policies and interventions aimed at weakening discrimination, covering role model and intergroup contact effects, as well as sociocognitive and technological debiasing strategies.Laura Stilwell and Jan Zilinsky provided excellent research assistance. We are particularly grateful to Betsy Levy Paluck, our discussant, for her detailed and thoughtful review of an earlier draft.Sitting outside with my back to the sun, I noticed that the shadow cast by each clear lens of my glasses was equally as dark as that cast by the frame and my head. Surely the clear lens would let the light through rather than casting a shadow?Runners have long debated the difference between training on a treadmill and training on solid ground.Most people, reasonably enough, aren't much interested in politics and wars and religions, and prefer to have something to do that they like, and somewhere nice to live with people they like.So why burden them with yet more warnings, and information about a ridiculous bunch of obsolescent fanatics?I have been surprised by how often I hear or read someone saying that sociopaths don't have emotions or can't form emotional bonds with other people.Most often it's people talking about how sociopaths are soulless monsters or must live lives completely devoid of any real meaningful relationships, but sometimes it's someone saying that he couldn't possibly be a sociopath because he feels emotions and love, etc. The three main diagnostic criterions actually have relatively little to say about emotions: Cleckley only mentions "general poverty in major affective reactions" and a poorly integrated sex life, Hare's PCL-R also lists shallow affect, and the DSM-V's ASPD only says that sociopaths tend to experience irritability and don't feel remorse. Nowhere does it say that sociopaths can't form emotional bonds.
If one tells me about how their friend died and they are in tears, I know that I must contribute with an appropriate response so that they 1) do not realize my status and 2) are not feeling any worse.the 'Third World' | Classics | Local History | Economic History | Psychology | Anthropology | Evolution | Engineering | Math and Mathematical Models | Women's Studies, Feminism | Economics | Business | Military | Military History | Military Intelligence | Weapon Distribution | Art | Housing | Politics | Law & International Law | Peace Studies | Statistics | Crimes, Policing | Jewish Marxism | Jew Awareness | Civilisations / Futurology of Jews | Talmud notes ] There are obvious reasons for warning young people about murderers, rapists, fraudsters, kidnappers, thieves and so on.And warning them of risky locations and situations.But I don't think even this idea of faking emotions is so different than most people.Do you always mean it when you say "oh, I'm so sorry to hear that"?[ Practical, Applied, Theory-Free Jew Teaching for Everyone | Race | Religion | Philosophy | History of Ideas | ...History of Silly Ideas | Sociology | Organisations: Unions, Political Groups, Govt Departments, New Organisations | Populations, Demography | Geography | Finance | Media Studies | BBC | Books | Film | Critics | Education | Jewish exam paper | Science | Scientific Method | Medicine, Nutrition | Health vs Harm Studies | Agriculture | History | International History ...Mosquito bites frequently induce a sharp sting in people and some animals, with severe evolutionary consequences for the mosquito when it gets swatted.Are any mosquitoes evolving with delayed-action stings or reduced sting secretions so that they can drink blood without the threat of imminent death?I've just read that eggs should not be stored in a rack on the back of a fridge door, the exact place where most fridge manufacturers put the egg rack.Before I revamp my fridge, is there any truth to this? My French granny says it is more hygienic to poo in a big hole in the garden, like she did when she was growing up, than it is to go inside. She also said that in olden days, people collected pee and used it to make plants grow better. In your article about housework ("Germ Warfare", 14 January 2017), you said that after washing dishes we should "rinse with plenty of water, preferably hot". Wouldn't it save money if they were rinsed with the cold water that comes directly from the mains?
