Divorce rate cut in half for newlyweds who discussed 5 relationship movies

Divorce rate cut in half for newlyweds who discussed 5 relationship movies | prediction | Scoop.it
Discussing five movies about relationships over a month could cut the three-year divorce rate for newlyweds in half, researchers report. The study, involving 174 couples, is the first long-term investigation to compare different types of early marriage intervention programs. The findings show that an inexpensive and relatively simple movie-and-talk approach can be just as effective as other more intensive therapist-led methods -- reducing the divorce or separation rate from 24 to 11 percent after three years.

Brin's Corollary to Moore's Law

Brin's Corollary to Moore's Law | prediction | Scoop.it

The cameras will get smaller, cheaper, more numerous and more mobile every year. We are in for a time of major decision as the Moore's Law of Cameras -- sometimes called “Brin’s Corollary to Moore’s Law-- takes hold and elites of all kinds are tempted to utilize surveillance in Orwellian/controlling ways ...often with rationalized good intentions.

 

Alas, many "champions of privacy and freedom" push the nebulous notion that dark outcomes can be prevented by passing laws against this or that elite lookingat this or that kind of information. In other words, by restricting information flows.
