NEW YORK - Children who grow up in poor families may have smaller brains than their more well-off peers, says a new study. But good...
Jose M Quiroz's insight:
"Biology is very much influenced by the environment," --in this case it hasn't been proven but it is very likely that poorer families are are a greater risk of raising children whom might have smaller brains than the average person at that age. Increasing the probability of not fulfilling their real performance.

football (soccer) takes part in sports psychology and i think is a great deal (since it has been played for a long period of time and is played in most of the rest of the world.) the question here was why Moyes over Mourhino? well the answer is easy: its because Mourhino does not have what Moyes do. Moyes pays a great deal of importance to culture, ethics and moral which are inevitably real traits for a long lasting company with great accomplishments.
Research has showed that women are not put in 'glass cliffs' by society but for themselves, for historic events that have taken action in the past and keep taking action, for who they are and because they are more likely to accept a position where have peer and chiefs support.
this is a very helpful source of information due to the ignorance of some (but not all) when it comes to choosing a career regardless of which field or area i have chose. Needless to say this article discuses how much a psychologist would make depending on educational level and actual job being executed (i.e. forensic psychologists.)

Martin Seligman talks about psychology -- as a field of study and as it works one-on-one with each patient and each practitioner. As it moves beyond a focus on disease, what can modern psychology help us to become?

unbelievably, the EvCC and WWU are bond to help students succeed in their post secondary school interests, and are committed to help every and each one of the students to explore courses that students with a major interest are interested in
Lord Baker, the former Conservative education secretary, says that large numbers of children are being forced to leave school lacking the vital skills needed to find a job
Jose M Quiroz's insight:
Education in colleges and universities is very important; but has failed to equip students with much of the essential skills they actually need. A further education is not guarantee that one will be successful in life; for example in England and Japan have the greatest number of overqualified students in the world just because education has turned too much theory based instead of hands on learning. I think that in order to resolve this problem is too think ahead of the problem and choose not only a career that matches you; but also one that won’t leave you cleaning tables at a bar six months right after graduation.
“There are five hiring attributes we have across the company,” explained Bock. “If it’s a technical role, we assess your coding ability, and half the roles in the company are technical roles. For every job, though, the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not I.Q. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information. We assess that using structured behavioral interviews that we validate to make sure they’re predictive.”
As Adam Bryant said "There are five hiring attributes we have across the company" and it is true about any job. those attributes are: humility and ownership, expertise, the ability to process on the fly, leadership, and the fundamental attribution error.
Recent research results go against the "conventional wisdom" (which had resulted that thoughtful deliberation improves decision-making.) Indeed “In everyday life, people often try to be specific to be accurate,” said Suk and colleagues, but this new research suggests that specificity and accuracy don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand.

this article talks about a new career ( the forensic psychology career) which many have no idea about and explains what it is, how it works, and what actual forensic psychologist do. it is very interesting and i think that many others should read about this career since from my own personal perspective is an extremely rigorous career that requires higher level skills.

What is consciousness? A neuroscientist's new book argues that it arises when information is broadcast throughout the brain
Quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli expressed disdain for sloppy, nonsensical theories by denigrating them as “not even wrong,” meaning they were just empty conjectures that could be quickly dismissed. Unfortunately, many remarkably popular theories of consciousness are of this ilk—the idea, for instance, that our experiences can somehow be explained by the quantum theory that Pauli himself helped to formulate in the early 20th century. An even more far-fetched idea holds that consciousness emerged only a few thousand years ago, when humans realized that the voices in their head came not from the gods but from their own internal spoken narratives.
Not every theory of consciousness, however, can be dismissed as just so much intellectual flapdoodle. During the past several decades, two distinct frameworks for explaining what consciousness is and how the brain produces it have emerged, each compelling in its own way. Each framework seeks to explain a vast storehouse of observations from both neurological patients and sophisticated laboratory experiments.
just as this article emphasizes, the consciousness is incredibly difficult to analyze. To be said is that we as humans are most likely to want an answer for what can't be answered yet; even if that requires implanting sensory devices in peoples skulls, and brains to discover what is yet to be answered. In this case it is a confusing material just as psychology is in great part gray area, indeed the conscious could be explained as the process of storing data to later be processed and used in the required way it is needed.
Malaysian minister woos parents to send children to Malaysian universities gulfnews.com Dubai-based Pakistani expatriate Sarah Mansour, who graduated with a degree in psychology in Malaysia, testified to this.
Jose M Quiroz's insight:
I think that this article emphasizes very well how this nations system of education has failed. Yes! Failed. Besides having the most expensive form of education along with the English, it has so many former college students that simply give up; either because they did not have the money to keep going with their studies, they environment was way different as their way of life back home or because they simply decided it was worth nothing to just keep trying since it is just way to expensive and the investment doesn’t even pay off by the time you retire. Also it is very important to consider that some eastern universities suck as Malaysian Universities have a competitive system with for only a fraction of the cost from the ones in the U.S.A. and England.
