Editor’s Selections: Power and Corruption, and Physical Punishment

Editor's Selections 34 Comments
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.

I’m sure you’ve been waiting eagerly, so without further ado:

  • At Psych Your Mind, Juliana Breines takes a closer look at the idea that power corrupts. She dissects three myths associated with this sentiment and finds little empirical support.
  • Dr. Stu’s presents arguments for and against physically disciplining children. He presents an interesting summary of the points with support from stats in countries where physical discipline has been banned and places where it has not, noting that happy families are the best environment for children.

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.

    I’ve to show some thanks towards the writer just for bailing me out of such a dilemma. As a result of surfing throughout the online world and coming across strategies that were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was nicely over. Existing minus the solutions towards the difficulties you’ve resolved all by way of the post is really a serious case, and the kind that would have negatively damaged my career if I had not discovered your web page. Your own personal know-how and kindness in playing with every part was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a stuff like this. I can also at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks very a lot for your specialized and results-oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to suggest your internet website to anybody who needs guide on this subject matter.

    One thing is that one of the most typical incentives for using your credit cards is a cash-back and also rebate offer. Generally, you’ll have access to 1-5% back on various purchases. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1% again on most expenditures, and 5% back on acquisitions made using convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores in addition to ‘member merchants’.

    En el Servicio Técnico Fagor en Madrid recomendamos que actue con cautela y avise a un servicio de asistencia Fagor ya que seguir utilizando su aparato, si este está averiado, puede empeorar su estado y encarecer la reparación. Lo primero es reconocer donde falla su electrodomestico Fagor despues póngase en contacto con nosotros y solicite la asistencia a domicilio de un técnico para reparar su aparato. En primer lugar, queremos informar de nuestra forma de funcionamiento, ya que somos una empresa que esta ofreciendo servicio técnico desde hace mas de 20 años, lo que nos permite contar con una plantilla de técnicos profesionales en la reparación y mantenimiento de electrodomésticos.
