Can You Tell Which Are A.I. Generated? | NY Times
A.I. is getting better fast. Phony deepfake images now appear regularly on social media, with many users seeming to believe that the images are real. The fake images can increase the risk that people will be deceived online, & they also risk eroding the public’s trust, making it harder to believe genuine images. But there are still some telltale signs that an image was made by A.I.
Our immediate ancestors lost most of their body fur 3 to 4 million years ago & did not don clothing until 83,000 to 170,000 years ago. That means that for over 2.5 million years, early humans & their ancestors were simply naked. Since her discovery in 1974, Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis) has been presented in ways that reflect historical assumptions & biases about motherhood, the nuclear family, women, men, & their relationships to one another. #anthropology #psychology Lucy Skeleton, Brain Size, Oldest Human, Ancient Humans, Human Evolution, Early Humans, Natural Science, Great Ape, Human Species

A deceptively simple concept. #Aeschylus
It can be hard to witness loved ones experiencing hardships & not want to step in & fix it. But being *emotionally supportive* of them is vastly different from being *emotionally responsible* for them. Support can look like helping find resources for therapy; motivating them to connect with new or old friends; or nudging them to pick up a hobby so they can have something for themselves. Support is not managing their emotions for them, resolving conflict on their behalf, or rejecting your own mental health to "be there" for them. They need to do this work for themselves. #psychology Parents Problems, Indian Parents, Premarital Counseling, Emotional Affair, Identity Development, Urban Culture, Dating World, Focus On Me, I Want To Cry

"I'm so busy" : How Being Busy Became a Status Symbol | The Atlantic
By bragging about how busy they are, workers can signal just how much the labor market values them & their skills: it conveys being "important". Working or "staying busy" all the time & perceiving work/busyness as an essential element of identity are dysfunctional, unhealthy signs of an unbalanced life. Being too busy is not a virtue or a status symbol; it's a trap.
