I have water but can you drink from my hands? | MetaFilter
"'Young Scheduled caste children were taught not to stand in doorways so that they would not cast a shadow into the room where higher caste people are eating and mistakenly contaminate their food.'"

also good comment summary - "the villagers had sound economic reasons to lop more tree branches, they noticed the change and realized that it could become a problem, and they are compensating for it by reducing their dependence on the forest (which also allows the trees to grow more anyway)."

Why trying to help poor countries might actually hurt them - The Washington Post
"The United States gave aid to Ethiopia for decades under then-President Meles Zenawi Asres, because he opposed Islamic fundamentalism and Ethiopia was so poor. Never mind that Asres was 'one of the most repressive and autocratic dictators in Africa'"

How a Computer Predicts Schizophrenia and Psychosis - The Atlantic
“'In our study, we found that minimal semantic coherence—the flow of meaning from one sentence to the next—was characteristic of those young people at risk who later developed psychosis ... It was not the average. What this means is that over 45 minutes of interviewing, these young people had at least one occasion of a jarring disruption in meaning from one sentence to the next. As an interviewer, if my mind wandered briefly, I might miss it. But a computer would pick it up.'"

Empathy Is Actually a Choice - The New York Times
"An experiment... found that even people temporarily assigned to high-power roles showed brain activity consistent with lower empathy. ... People with a higher sense of power exhibit less empathy because they have less incentive to interact with others."

"In our view, empathy is only as limited as we choose it to be."

Mythcommunication: It’s Not That They Don’t Understand, They Just Don’t Like The Answer |
"These women said they generally offered excuses that posited an inability rather than unwillingness to accept the offer because, in one woman’s words, 'that would stop the boy from blaming you.'”
but then the takeaway of the study? "The problem of sexual coercion cannot be fixed by changing the way women talk."

Can You Die From A Nightmare?
"But in the last few months I've started considering a more mundane possibility: That things as common as a breakup, my dog dying, or stress at work are the primary causes of my sleep disturbances. It's deflating to think that there are people with what I consider real problems who are probably managing just fine, and here I am running into doors and almost jumping out of windows because of a breakup — but that seems to be my reality."
