Ten Politically Incorrect Truths About Human Nature Human nature is one of those things that everybody talks about but no one can define precisely. Every time we fall in love, fight with our spouse, get upset about the influx of immigrants into our country, or go to church, we are, in part, behaving as a human animal with our own unique evolved nature—human nature. This means two things. First, our thoughts, feelings, and behavior are produced not only by our individual experiences and environment in our own lifetime but also by what happened to our ancestors millions of years ago.
I'm ready for my claws-up By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 15:57 GMT, 24 August 2011 Jill Greenberg, like every other professional photographer, knows that models can be hard to handle - with their diva-like demands and hissy fits. And, with the models she works with especially, getting them at the wrong time of day is literally like dealing with a bear with a sore head. Greenberg's studio portraits feature animal celebrities, including many who have appeared in Hollywood films and commercials, at their most cute - and frightening.

The Myth of Japan’s Failure DESPITE some small signs of optimism about the United States economy, unemployment is still high, and the country seems stalled. Time and again, Americans are told to look to as a warning of what the country might become if the right path is not followed, although there is intense disagreement about what that path might be.
