Brain scans link concern for justice with reason, not emotion
People who care about justice are swayed more by reason than emotion, according to new brain scan research from the Department of Psychology and Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience.
Psychologists have found that some individuals react more strongly than others to situations that invoke a sense of justice—for example, seeing a person being treated unfairly or mercifully. The new study used brain scans to analyze the thought processes of people with high “justice sensitivity.”
“We were interested to examine how individual differences about justice and fairness are represented in the brain to better understand the contribution of emotion and cognition in moral judgment,” explained lead author Jean Decety, the Irving B. Harris Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry.    ..

This is Aaradhna singing this retro styled song of cutting of your boyfriend’s dick for cheating on you in a delightful song called "Lorena Bobbitt."You should all listen (and buy) her album Treble & Reverb on her bandcamp here - it will make you shimmy and sock hop instantaneously.

New Zealand based Aaradhna otherwise known as a Aaradhna Jayantilal Patel is half Indian, half Samoan and full on awesome.

Aaradhna is a New Zealander of Samoan and Indian descent. Her father Jayanti Patel is Indian from Navsari, Southern Gujarat નવસારી village and her mother Sia’a Patel is Samoan from Papa Uta village (Mother Lagi Taofinu’u), Auala village (Father Mulimai Moe) & Falealupo village (Step Father Pio Taofinu’u). Aaradhna is the eldest of five. She first showed singing aspirations at the young age of 12, singing along with her mother to traditional Samoan and country songs. She would try to imitate the songs she heard in Bollywood movies that her and her father watched and also went to festivals that her father performed at. [Wiki]

this is just too cute i can’t

Viral videos aren’t about the people who are in them, they’re about the people who watch them. It’s much easier to look at a 60-second “uplifting” video and tear up and feel really good about yourself for sharing a post to Facebook than it is to learn anything meaningful about the lives of Deaf individuals around the world. So the next time you see one, don’t just cheer for the newly hearing person, but take a moment to think of the others in the Deaf community and the viral videos that won’t be made about them.

Why You Shouldn’t Share Those Emotional ‘Deaf Person Hears for the First Time’ Videos

It is difficult to be sat on all day, every day, by some other creature, without forming an opinion on them.

On the other hand, it is perfectly possible to sit all day, every day, on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoever.

And don’t the sun look good today? But the rain is on it’s way. Watch the butcher shine his knives, and this town is full of battered wives.

I’ll always love this clip for capturing sleepy summer Brisbane in the 80’s, just before the transition from a large country town to more socially stratified, 3rd east coast capital took off. Even Robert being pretentious.
