By Krystal D'Costa

Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.

This week in the social sciences:

  • Julien Riel-Salvatore has a short, but fascinating discussion on the merits of obsidian blades at A Very Remote Period Indeed.
  • At Gene Expression, Razib Khan presents a clear and engaging discussion on the racial ancestry of Brazilians.
  • With typical flair, Scicurious of Neurotic Physiology tackles a recent digital media study investigating self esteem and online presence, highlighting areas for skepticism that are worth noting.
  • DeLene Beeland explores how the nature of social communities can impact preservation efforts with regard to carnivores at Wild Muse.
  • At Language on the Move, Ingrid Pillar muses on the meaning of “home,” and the ways language can help and hinder ties for transnationals.

I’ll be back next Thursday with more selections from the social sciences!

    Nutrition was my major at an accredited university. I’m starting to wonder if the “graduate” student is not attending an accredited university since they would NEVER agree with a fruitarian diet, and rarely a vegan diet. Harley uses studies, and turns the study into favoring him. I did a casual in depth critique on one of this videos with the studies he linked below. I found that he twisted the true research, and lied. Not only did the studies not mention anything he had said in the video, but his research was lacking some fundamental skills. But he did use science, just not what came out of his mouth. ;)
