After a year of 'the right to be forgotten' a quarter million Europeans have asked Google to forget them.
Nearly a million websites were analyzed by Google in the program's first year.

They are 'not forgotten' in the rest of the world, only in Europe. How globalized is that? ☺

Lack of empathy, indifference and even animosity are among the more common narcissistic traits.
 
Narcissists do not consider the pain they inflict on others; nor do they give any credence to others' perceptions," says Dr. Les Carter in the book Enough of You, Let's Talk About Me 
Don't expect them to listen, validate, or support you.

The remarkable story of three reporters who did their homework well and managed to overturn Costa Rica's political establishment.
How three scrappy Costa Rican reporters used the power of data to bring down a system of sleaze.

Having social connections is like having your brain on steroids.
Wade Harman originally shared to Social Media Psychology:
 
A Better Brain...?
Did you know having social media connections relates to having your brain on steroids?  Well, maybe not steroids, but you still get the picture.  This article shows why your social connections (if they're positive) can boost your brain activity.

Check out this quote from the article:
Lieberman sees the brain as the center of the social self. Its primary purpose is social thinking. One of the great mysteries of evolutionary science is how and why the human brain got to be so large. Brain size generally increases with body size across the animal kingdom. Elephants have huge brains while mice have tiny ones. But humans are the great exception to this rule. Given the size of our bodies, our brains should be much smaller—but they are by far the largest in the animal kingdom relative to our body size.

Nice.  Take a look.

#socialmediapsychology  
Recent trends show that people increasingly value material goods over relationships—but neuroscience and evolution say this goes against our nature.

A book about the rise of the middle-class in China and how to go about doing business in those markets.
 
There is a very good book about the rising middle class in China that is a must-read if you want to grasp the growth potential in this country. It is called “China’s Super Consumers,” by Savio Chan and Michael Zakkour.
What we experienced with the rise of the U.S. middle class in the 1950s has started to take place in broader international markets today.

Anxiety has now surpassed depression as the most common mental-health problem among college students.
 
Anxiety has now surpassed depression as the most common mental health diagnosis among college students, though depression, too, is on the rise. More than half of students visiting campus clinics cite anxiety as a health concern.

Is that another way of saying that Di Maria will still be with +Manchester United​ during the 2015-16 season? 
Angel di Maria has really struggled at Manchester United since joining in August 2014, but his luck could be about to change. The Argentine is an unlikely holder of the best ‘big chance’ creator in the Premier League for the 2014/15 season, according to whoscored.com. They calculated the results by looking at the highest proportion […]

Cosy, nice ambience, brightly lit and clean. The food is good and reasonably priced. Was somewhat disappointed though to find that they do not serve South Indian filter coffee, despite being a place whose fare is almost wholly S. Indian.

Interesting case study! Have never been there though this outlet is pretty close to where I usually stay when in Kolkata. Also, this is possibly one of their early outlets, if not the first one. The song by Manna Dey was greatly popular during the 70s and possibly early part of the 80s. Not quite sure whether young adults today or even folks in their 30s have any kind of fond memories or even nostalgic memories associated with the original song. Re: the other aspects, for this outlet specifically, the feedback I have received from old friends & relatives has been rather negative. Am told there's nothing out-of-the-ordinary as far as the fare is concerned, prices of most dishes aren't quite value for money, service is below par and waiting times during certain days & hours can be irritatingly long. Maybe some of this is right and maybe it isn't but, given this feedback, have no motivation, to try out things, specifically at this outlet. P.S. There appears to be some wrong classification here. Bengali cuisine, while it may have a few seafood dishes can't be primarily classified as seafood as the bulk of the non-vegetarian offerings would happen to be river fishes of one kind or another or red or white meat.

Has degenerated over the years into a seedy, somewhat sleazy place which mostly screens local movies interspersed with the occasional Bollywood ones. The auditorium is infested with bedbugs, cockroaches & possibly even blood-sucking leeches. Visit this place at your own risk.

Food quality can greatly vary depending on the client on whose behalf they are doing the catering. I've had a range of stuff from Bijoli Grill over the years - some of it quite good, some of it mundane and some of it yucky! Wish they exercised more quality control & demonstrated greater consistency.

I have been here only a couple of times. The first sight that greets you is that of a bunch of youngsters playing basketball. Other than that there appear to be a whole lot of offices in Level 1 & Level 2. During one of my visits I was looking for a Food Court but was told it wasn't there. There is a Hans cafe instead.

One of the oldest & best known outlets for traditional Bengali sweets. While quality remains good, it has suffered at the hands of some of its more contemporary competitors in terms of range, variety & packaging.

Some hot nice curry puffs & pratas can be had from the Malay Stall in the evenings. Most of the other stalls are closed anyway. Mostly it is a hangout for the late evening beer drinkers with the Karaoke joint in the Community Centre next door providing some business, one supposes.
