Why was Steve Jobs sometimes so mean?: „Sometimes called narcissism, Jobs’ sense of specialness gave him the confidence to take big risks and to inspire colleagues and customers. But it also gave him the license to take advantage of others without paying attention to their feelings or needs. And this, in turn, led him to be mean in two ways: through indifference, because he simply didn’t realize that he was hurting someone; and through explicit attack if he detected the slightest hint that he was being challenged, especially by an underling or a person he didn’t respect.”

How an Absent Father Affects Boys and Girls Differently: „While daughters generally require a level of quality interaction with a father figure, sons benefit from sheer quantity of time, and respond simply to having a father or father figure around the house. Most interestingly, however, is the finding that daughters appear to be adversely affected by contact with their non-residential biological father.”

15 modele literare pentru copii: „Remi – Personajul central din romanul “Sigur pe lume” al lui Hector Malot este poate cel mai bun exemplu pentru copiii care visează să fugă de acasă doar pentru că părinții nu le cumpără o jucărie nouă. Prin ochii lui Remi cu toții am învățat ce înseamnă să fii orfan, al nimănui, să găsești consolare și o familie lângă un câine (mulți cred că am plâns când Capi a murit iarna, cumva încercând să îi ofere căldura corpului său lui Remi) și, într-un final, să te bucuri de întregirea unei familii, distruse de dispariția unui copil.”

The books business – Great digital expectations: „TO SEE how profoundly the book business is changing, watch the shelves. Next month IKEA will introduce a new, deeper version of its ubiquitous “BILLY” bookcase. The flat-pack furniture giant is already promoting glass doors for its bookshelves. The firm reckons customers will increasingly use them for ornaments, tchotchkes and the odd coffee-table tome—anything, that is, except books that are actually read.”

Can a blood test really tell you when you’ll die?: „Some newspapers, to the dismay of the scientists involved, have gleefully announced that the test – which measures the telomeres (the protective caps on the ends of my chromosomes) – can predict when I will die. […]

The test is based on the idea that biological ageing grinds at your telomeres. And, although time ticks by uniformly, our bodies age at different rates. Genes, environment and our own personal habits all play a part in that process. A peek at your telomeres is an indicator of how you are doing. Essentially, they tell you whether you have become biologically younger or older than other people born at around the same time.”

Deep Intellect – Inside the mind of the octopus: „Only recently have scientists accorded chimpanzees, so closely related to humans we can share blood transfusions, the dignity of having a mind. But now, increasingly, researchers who study octopuses are convinced that these boneless, alien animals—creatures whose ancestors diverged from the lineage that would lead to ours roughly 500 to 700 million years ago—have developed intelligence, emotions, and individual personalities. Their findings are challenging our understanding of consciousness itself.”

Women on the Pill May Choose Reliable Over Sexy, Study Suggests: „In lab studies, women who are in fertile stages of their cycle are more likely to go for men who look healthy, self-confident, and masculine, which tend to be markers for good genes, but also for infidelity. The pill mimics pregnancy, though, when the die has already been cast and being a good provider is more attractive than sexy. In the lab, women on the pill do indeed select men who look like they will be more reliable and steady.”
