Secondhand explore the shitty NYC of decades ago!


Everything related to living in, working in, visiting, or otherwise experiencing New York City as the broke, violent, graffitti'd, dysfunctional, crime-ridden, grimy hellhole it was from about the mid-1960s to the mid-1990s. Embrace the seedy excitement!

I am surprised that when there's often an acknowledged relationship

between cruelty to animals and violence against others inference is lacking in other situations. For example, logic should dictate that violence against women and girls should also translate into the community at large. There's plenty of research that supports domestic violence translates to mass shootings. Why is law enforcement so poorly informed? I am of the belief that it's the continued subjugation of women and girls that is perpetuated by lousy law enforcement that results in the continuation of mass shootings. Somebody needs to get a clue.

Adolescent Conspiracy Beliefs Questionnaire from the article. Thanks, JL. ❤

Academics worked with secondary school teachers to devise an initial list of 36 questions. The questions were then tested on a range of young people from schools across the UK through multiple studies, allowing the team to confirm a list of nine questions that effectively measure young people’s belief in conspiracy theories. The ACBQ includes statements such as “secret societies influence many political decisions” - participants completing the questionnaire are asked to respond to each statement on a scale from 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree). A higher mean score indicates a higher belief in conspiracy theories.

Dr Daniel Jolley said: “Our project has put the spotlight on young people’s conspiracy beliefs for the first time. As part of our scale construction, we uncovered initial evidence that paranoia and mistrust are associated with conspiracy beliefs in young populations. We also found that by the age of 14, conspiracy beliefs appeared to remain constant. Exploring the psychological antecedents and consequences of conspiracy thinking in younger populations is important and timely.”

Vanessa Cuthill, Director of Research at the British Academy, said: “The British Academy is proud to support research that helps deepen our understanding of people and society. High-quality, independent research in the humanities and social sciences points us towards new ways to think about our most pressing concerns. This study is a great example, providing us with new ways in which we can learn more about the origins of conspiracy beliefs and the impact social media and digital technology have on the lives of young people."
