I was in Iran in early 2011 when there were reports from opposition sources in exile saying that protests were sweeping the country. There was some substance in this. There had been a demonstration of 30,000 protesters in north Tehran on 14 February – recalling the mass protests against the allegedly fixed presidential election of 2009 – that had caught the authorities by surprise. There was hopeful commentary from Western pundits suggesting that...

The Associated Press just announced that AT&T is buying Time Warner (which owns CNN & HBO, among others). Does anybody else have a problem with this, or is it just me?

A Better Understanding of ‘The Addictive Personality’

An excerpt published in Scientific American taken from the book, Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction, by Maia Szalavitz, says that there is no scientific evidence, no general collection of personality traits, to label someone with an addictive personality. Such a diagnosis is a myth, and in no way based on current scientific research. Moreover, Szalavitz adds that many of the behaviors associated with addictions are often a result of problems associated with learning and interpreting one’s experience, whether positive or negative.

Such individuals are not born with what is deemed as anti-social personality disorders, which suggest a genetic component, but might have learning disorders, primarily in how they process information—often in a way that can distort their thought processes and lead to the formation of bad or destructive personal habits.

Unbroken Brain: Maia Szalavitz, writes: “Addictions and other neurodevelopmental disorders rely not just on our actual experience but on how we interpret it and how our parents and friends respond to and label the way we behave. They develop in brains designed to change with experience—and that leaves us vulnerable to learning things that create damaging patterns, not just useful habits.”

Truly authentic Thai cuisine, healthy, not as oily as other restaurants. They have some dishes here that you won't find anywhere else, except perhaps in NYC or Thailand. Extremely friendly hosts and staff. The mango curry is TO DIE FOR!!!!!

This place is anything but authentic. The decks and staff are wonderful but the food clearly is prepared for an American palate. Food is heavily and overly seasoned with soy sauce and sugars making it taste more like a French dessert than a Thai dish. Vegetables are used sparingly, the emphasis here definitely is on proteins. There are many, more authentic, and less diabetic-coma-inducing Thai restaurants in the area. Prices are above average here, and portions are a bit smaller. But again, the decor is splendid, they have a bar, and the staff is fabulous and friendly. If you don't mind a heavily Americanized Thai food experience and are more interesting in atmosphere (e.g., a great place to take a date), this is the place for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere, especially if you're seeking authentic Thai food (like King & I and Sweet Basil deliver).
