Are language skills alone enough to ensure overseas Chinese fit well into their new home? The answer is no, according to a study of the social experience of recent Chinese immigrants in Australia, which found that their biggest barrier to communication is not language or knowledge, but the ability to make small talk. The experience of 25-year-old Fei - a financial adviser who has lived in Melbourne for seven years, speaks fluent English and considers himself outgoing - is typical. Every time the company holds a social function, he's reluctant to join, he says. Chinese immigrants find Australian small talk too awkward Chinese immigrants find Australian small talk too awkward
Most of the time, we try to avoid inflicting pain on others — when we do hurt someone, we typically experience guilt, remorse, or other feelings of distress. But for some, cruelty can be pleasurable, even exciting. New research suggests that this kind of everyday sadism is real and more common than we might think. Two studies led by psychological scientist Erin Buckels of the University of British Columbia revealed that people who score high on a measure of sadism seem to derive pleasure from behaviors that hurt others, and are even willing to expend extra effort to make someone else suffer. The new findings are published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. “Some find it hard to reconcile sadism with the concept of ‘normal’ psychological functioning, but our findings show that sadistic tendencies among otherwise well-adjusted people must be acknowledged,” says Buckels.

The "Horatio Alger myth" refers to a perceived characteristic trajectory - and attendant ethic or message - found in the novels of Horatio Alger, Jr.. Alger wrote over 100 books for young working class males, a well-known early example of which is Ragged Dick, which was published in 1867. His books have been described as rags to riches stories, although often 'rags to middle class respectability' might be more accurate.[1] "By leading exemplary lives, struggling valiantly against poverty and adversity", Alger's protagonists gain both wealth and honor, ultimately realizing the American Dream.[2] The characters in Alger's stories sometimes improved their social position through the aid of an older, kindly, wealthly helping person. Success of Alger's characters[edit] The association of Alger's stories with the 'rags to riches' trope is somewhat misleading, as his heroes rarely become extremely wealthy.

But most individuals in every one of those groups never have suicidal thoughts — even fewer act on them — and no data exist to explain the difference between those who will and those who won’t. We also have no way of guessing when — in the next hour? in the next decade? — known risk factors might lead to an attempt. Our understanding of how suicidal thinking progresses, or how to spot and halt it, is little better now than it was two and a half centuries ago, when we first began to consider suicide a medical rather than philosophical problem and physicians prescribed, to ward it off, buckets of cold water thrown at the head.

The Dalai Lama - "The World Will Be Saved By the Western Woman" About a month ago, the Dalai Lama said something about women that is just now making the rounds on Twitter. His statement, "The world will be saved by the western woman," was delivered during the Vancouver Peace Summit 2009, which opened on the morning of Sunday, September 27th. Although I'm still trying to track down a transcript of the speech containing the above statement, the Dalai Lama participated in more than one panel discussion that day, and the event most likely to have provoked such a strongly worded declaration was the "Nobel Laureates in Dialogue: Connecting for Peace" presentation held that afternoon.

How many times in your life have you started something that you wanted to do, maybe bought some equipment, learned a little about the process, and then quit a week or two in? How many diets have you started and stopped or how many times have you procrastinated doing something that you think would make your life better? I would bet you’ve probably done this as much as I have or maybe more. Think about this; billions of dollars are spent every year on gym memberships, fitness equipment and self-improvement books and seminars, yet most people continue to do the exact same thing day after day, without making a noticeable change in their lives. What kinds of excuses do we put in front of ourselves? LPT: Create Your Own Life Experiments for Simple Life Improvement : LifeProTips
