How hard can I post this story?

------------
The findings “robustly demonstrate that children from households identifying as either of the two major world religions (Christianity and Islam) were less altruistic than children from non-religious households”.
Older children, usually those with a longer exposure to religion, “exhibit[ed] the greatest negative relations”.

The report was “a welcome antidote to the presumption that religion is a prerequisite of morality”, said Keith Porteus Wood of the UK National Secular Society.
------------
Religious belief appears to have negative influence on children’s altruism and judgments of others’ actions even as parents see them as ‘more empathetic’

Today’s the day to make history! Starting at 2:00 PM EST (11AM PST), we will be rolling out another very big social media call to action on Twitter. The goal? To give Bernie as big of a social media boost as possible tonight, and get the hashtag #CaucusForBernie trending across the country. It would help us greatly if you could retweet our posts from @BernieSanders, and then adopt the hashtag as your own! We’ve written a few ideas below to help w...

Krugman decreed that all "serious" policy experts support Hillary Clinton, thus excluding dozens of pro-Bernie Sanders experts from his club.

Hillary Clinton is a formidable candidate who has assembled a strong campaign. She will remain formidable even if Sanders exceeds expectations by doing well in Iowa and winning in New Hampshire. The panic among her supporters is both unseemly and excessive. Clinton's difficulties stem not from the attacks of Sanders -- the most courtly of opponents -- but from her own revealing choices.

Bernie is something new. The major media has given him ridiculously little coverage, and belittled him in most of that coverage. Yet he has surged in the polls, in volunteers, in small-donor fundraising, and in real world events.

Chomsky is only covered when he discusses partisan politics; his foreign policy criticism is ignored. He agrees.

We've been taking our two cats to Oakdale for a year. The time and attention we get from everyone at Oakdale is more than we could ask. Dr. Sullivan always takes the time to answer all of our questions, and usually answers them before we even think of them. I love that they are reachable via e-mail! Everyone is extremely friendly and professional, and the facilities are clean and attractive.

Awesome vegetarian food! I got the regular fresh-cut french fries with salt and pepper, and their homemade Jamaican veggie burger. Great atmosphere, super friendly service, great experience. Really comfortable lunch spot.

Their customer service is superior. I've had to request administrative help a few times and each time the manager has responded very quickly, been very helpful, and never made me feel like I was putting him out. Plus, they are very much online; they respond to e-mail, and do online class bookings and payment. Their facilities are clean and attractive. I only go there in the morning, so I don't know what it's like by the time herds of people are done with the place by mid-afternoon, but the place is tastefully decorated and serene. In the Reformer room, there's a waterfall, ceiling fans, peaceful lighting, climate control. The machines seem well maintained. My instructors have been extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful, and there are several to choose from. P.S. I've only taken the Reformer classes.

They came out next day, were punctual, professional, and helpful. Plus, they have the same rates on weekends! It was nice that they e-mailed us prior to their arrival.
