This is a duplicate post.

Please check the group posting history prior to creating new posts.

Though this is a heinous revelation & great personal tragedy which speaks volumes to the evils of organized religion. Signal boosting evil is not uplifting or helpful to anyone. Can we please try to keep the sensationalism and tabloid like stories in this group to a minimum?

I firmly and deeply believe that focus on evil just creates more evil. Let's please try to honor each other in this group by being informative, supportive and uplifting. I think many would agree we have more than enough stressing us out, pushing us down, as it is.

Please. Focus is our most vital tool. Let's use it to work toward the greater good for all. Thank you.

Calling HB2 the bathroom law does little to foster an honest conversation

About the bill and the ramifications therein. No offense but that title barely scratches the surface of the serious threat to national civil liberties this abominable law creates. Please consider this:

The bathroom issue is important but the wound here cuts deeper and broader. We should be terrified of the nefarious social stew HB2 serves up for all citizens not just the LGBT community. You can read the entire law in PDF FORM here:https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015E2/Bills/House/PDF/H2v4.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwjT6P2148_MAhXGFj4KHRLeCLEQFgg_MAs&usg=AFQjCNEwjZWfcuI0l8Ef4ZRRFlxp0d2eQA&sig2=gYrv__PIYveXnL0FelL_QA

The Secret to Smart Groups: It's Women

The concept of "general intelligence"—the idea that people who are good at one mental task tend to be good at many others—was considered radical in 1904, when Charles Spearman proposed the theory of a "g factor." Today, however, it is among the most replicated findings in psychology. But whereas in 1904 the U.S. economy was a network of farms, mills, and artisans, today's economy is an office-based affair, where the most important g for many companies doesn't stand for general intelligence, but, rather, groups.

So, what makes groups smart? Is there any such thing as a "smart" group, or are groups just, well, clumps of smart people?

As a team of scientists from MIT, Carnegie Mellon, and Union College write in this Sunday's New York Times, research suggests that just as some individuals are smarter than others, some groups are smarter than others, across a range of tests and tasks. In other words, there is a "c factor" for collective intelligence. Teams that are successful at solving visual puzzles also tend to be good at brainstorming and beating computers in video games. The authors provide a nice summary of the characteristics of smart groups in their original study (not directly linked in the Times piece, but accessible on page 686 of Science, October 2010):
