New music survey: P2P users buy the most, no one wants disconnection penalties A new survey from the American Assembly, a research center at Columbia University, provides new insights about public opinion on file sharing and copyright enforcement. With support from Google, researchers Joe Karaganis and Lennart Renkema commissioned a public opinion survey to find out how consumers were getting their media and what their attitudes were toward a variety of copyright enforcement strategies. Among the most significant findings: Americans overwhelmingly oppose the use of disconnection and rate-limiting as penalties for unauthorized file sharing. The distinction between public and private sharing is central to Americans' thinking about the morality of file sharing. Unsurprisingly, young people tend to be friendlier to copying than older Americans. While the survey was commissioned by Google, not all of the results will be to the Mountain View company's liking. File sharers buy more music Of course, correlation is not causation. Cultural differences

Human mind , soul and spirit Pat wrote:"The forum for talks about the intangible universe, the human mind, and the soul"I am very curious about what other people think the human mind is and what the soul is and spirit . Are they the same or different? What do they mean to you? How closely attached are they to the human body, if at all? Soul is my emotional consciousness, therefore when I am hurt I would say:"My soul hurts." Spirit is my driving force, my true self that guides me and supports me through life experiences. Mind is my watch, my computer, my calculator, my navigator, my passport, protector of my personality. My body is a vessel, boat where all three reside. Child, when born is Soul, Mind is system of knowledge and education, like an inner personal library or computer, Spirit is the same soul after experiencing Life and learning about self as it is, transformed soul, that has transcended this reality into the stable state of consciousness.

What it means to "hold space" for people, plus eight tips on how to do it well - Heather Plett When my mom was dying, my siblings and I gathered to be with her in her final days. None of us knew anything about supporting someone in her transition out of this life into the next, but we were pretty sure we wanted to keep her at home, so we did. While we supported mom, we were, in turn, supported by a gifted palliative care nurse, Ann, who came every few days to care for mom and to talk to us about what we could expect in the coming days. She taught us how to inject Mom with morphine when she became restless, she offered to do the difficult tasks (like giving Mom a bath), and she gave us only as much information as we needed about what to do with Mom’s body after her spirit had passed. “Take your time,” she said. Ann gave us an incredible gift in those final days. In the two years since then, I’ve often thought about Ann and the important role she played in our lives. The work that Ann did can be defined by a term that’s become common in some of the circles in which I work.

How To Draw The Human Head This is a personal collection of mine collected over the web, unfortunately I don’t know which are the authors of these works, so if somebody knows I’m going to be really happy to give the credits to them. Hope to enjoy it. Never stop practice. Andrew Loomis, from the Book “How to Draw the Head and Hands” 10 poses of the head 21 Rotations Of The Head Very Detailed Rotations Very Nice Rotations Of The Head Excellent Application Of Face Expressions Forensic Psychology: A Free And Comprehensive Guide worrying-about-stuff-is-a-sign-of-intelligence The tendency to worry about stuff could be a sign of a certain kind of intelligence, according to a paper in an upcoming edition of the journal Personality and Individual Differences (hat tip to Christian Jarrett at the British Psychology Society's Research Digest for spotting it first). A team led by Alexander Penney of Ontario's Lakehead University gave 126 undergrads a litany of surveys and questionnaires designed to measure both their intelligence and how much they tended to stress about events in their lives. (For instance, they were asked how strongly they agreed with statements like, "I am always worried about something.") Correlation doesn't imply causation, of course, but this is not the first paper to have found a link between anxiety and intelligence. It is possible that more verbally intelligent individuals are able to consider past and future events in greater detail, leading to more intense rumination and worry.

using pop culture in high school psych class | TV clips for your psych classroom Como fazer alguém se apaixonar por você Eles só se encontraram por causa de um questionário. A equipe do psicólogo Arthur Aron (aquele mesmo da pesquisa na Ponte Suspensa de Capilano) havia convidado voluntários para responder a uma série de perguntas sobre estilo de vida, hobbies, interesses etc. Com base nessas respostas, Aron formou uma série de casais que dividiam gostos e ideias parecidos para ficar frente a frente e conversar. Cada dupla se sentou em uma sala confortável, só os dois, sem ninguém por perto, e começaram a conversar. Ela perguntou quem ele levaria a um jantar, se pudesse escolher qualquer pessoa no mundo. E também contou qual seria a opção dela. Eis as perguntas do questionário do amor, que faria duas pessoas desconhecidas se apaixonarem: FASE 11. FASE 2 13. FASE 325. A ideia do questionário era criar laços de confiança de um jeito bem rápido. Aqueles quatro minutos finais de encarada amarraram de vez os laços. Crédito da foto:
