January 12, 2012 | Happiness |
Older people tend to be happier. But why? Some psychologists believe that cognitive processes are responsible -- in particular, focusing on and remembering positive events and leaving behind negative ones; those processes, they think, help older people regulate their emotions, letting them view life in a sunnier light. "There is a lot of good theory about this age difference in happiness," says psychologist Derek M. Isaacowitz of Northeastern University, "but much of the research does not provide direct evidence" of the links between such phenomena and actual happiness.

January 10, 2012 | JunkHealthcare |
Why do so many people still rely on a cancer treatment which spreads poison throughout their body killing everything in its path? Do people regularly use shotguns to kill flies?

A major life lesson that takes many people a whole lifetime to learn is that the passion felt for material things and material wealth will never equate to how special loving someone and being loved by someone can make you feel.
