Terry Hill, PhDs insight:

In what ways does this type of cross-sex group activity help to reduce the likelihood of sexual abuse, body image stereotyping, ageism, inappropriate communications, sexism, etc.? I can think of many ways. Contrary to conservative and prudish views towards group or family nudity, it has many positive psychological benefits, especially if begun at an early age

Generation Y Rebels Against Company Tech Rules

Generation Y Rebels Against Company Tech Rules | The Human Body | Scoop.it
Study finds Generation Y breaking company policies on technology use in the workplace.

Via Color-Art
Terry Hill, PhDs insight:

It's to be expected given the uniquity of iPhones and their presence now even in the hands of 4-year olds. The urgency of interpersonal communication has never been greater, with it's ease of access, an omnipresent worldview of fatalism, a loss of a sense of community, and depressing economies. Generation Y also have a resilient sense of entitlement, unearned but made clear. iPhones/iPads are revolutionizing traditional education, as virtual classrooms force up the price of real estate now holding empty or rapidly dwindling on-site classrooms. And concept of self has morphed into getting constant feedback from Alice's looking glass disguised as an iPhone. Self is reflexive and requires technology for its efficacy. Anxiety surges out of empty in-boxes. Times they are a-changing.

Wesley J. Smith - Big Transhumanist Believes in Intelligent Design!

Wesley J. Smith - Big Transhumanist Believes in Intelligent Design! | The Human Body | Scoop.it
Transhumanism is a materialist religion that seeks to find transcendence and immortality through technology and the fashioning of a “post-human species.”

If transhumanists have a leader, Oxford professor Nick Bostrom is the guy.
Terry Hill, PhDs insight:

This is not so far-fetched as you may imagine. Although there is no 'intelligent' design to evolution, just random mutations that work or don't work, his reference is to humans who use technology intelligently to extend bionic life. 

So let's follow this guy and see where he leads us,  but keep an open mind on the way.
