First it's a visit to Auschwitz, then an organised bar crawl | Catherine Bennett

We are in grave danger of trivializing history, it is essential that young people learn properly

dismay, a few years ago when it appeared that the organizers of stag party involved children of Auschwitz-Birkenau as a small must-see, arrested the unruly British people book tours to the extermination camp - "this mysterious trip is a must," said a tour operator. In fact, judging by the number of specialists parties now offer the tour, revulsion and widespread accusations of insensitivity Auschwitz was only confirmed as a bonding experience up to run with the bulls and oil wrestling, it says another expert Krakow, the characteristics of "incredibly attractive women, wearing only a lubricant."

"Quads morning after visiting one of the most disturbing Auschwitz museum in the world," offers the same operator. "A permanent tribute to one of the greatest hoaxes of the 20th century, followed by the Saturday VIP bar hopping tour with English-speaking guides." There is little evidence that clients fight hangover, taste-wise, with the so-called stag do package Auschwitz supplier, which could be due to amnesia, or the fact that, with the lap dance and medieval banquet what happens in stays Birkenau Birkenau.

A student recently saw the Conservative MP Aidan Burley, asleep and text messages during an educational tour Auschwitz (yes made to atone for his past involvement in a Nazi-themed stag so that guests toasted the Third Reich).

An American student journalist However, he wondered why the idea of ??genocide should not be incompatible with coffee, cigarettes and a tasty snack. A guide criticized for being disrespectful, "I eat the sandwich anyway, almost defiantly, making sure to savor every last crumb rationalize any Polish Gypsy, Jewish or who died literally kill for a bite of the sandwich . . "It is well known that the accounts of the prisoners of Auschwitz, as Primo Levi, witness incredible acts of altruism on the ground and the refusal of the prisoners to be reduced to their instincts." It is perhaps a surprise, "writes Levi

" in the camps one of the states most popular spirit was curiosity. And However, in addition to being frightened, humiliated and desperate, we were curious hunger for bread and also to understand the world around us is upside down and that someone must have spilled ... "

the Holocaust Educational Trust, with its mission "to provide knowledge to new generations," remains a symbol of faith, in addition to teaching the Holocaust and school its own negotiations impressive survival program, films and seminars, visits to the extermination camp are particularly useful. There are other ways to fight against ignorance and oblivion: the Imperial War Museum, for example, has a magnificent exhibition of the Holocaust (not recommended for children under 14 years), with testimonials survivors, helps visitors understand the tragedies genocide individual family.

Screw you! The psychology of anger and aggression | Dean Burnett

Many people were very upset by many things lately, both in the real world and online. This is nothing unusual. But what makes people so you work on what others are relatively trivial?

There may have missed the latest debacle Twitter. Some people deeply unpleasant very angry against women pursuing public agendas pro-woman. People are very angry against those people who sent threats and Twitter, in general, for not doing more to stop it. Some people were angry against these people instead of solutions they wanted. A short twitter-boycott was organized after a large person, it seems that people get angry with her, I mean its very existence. People are very angry against the supposed reason behind the boycott. People are very angry against those people who were upset by the boycott. It could have been more, but it got too complicated for me. I'm just a neurologist.

Around this time, a message received GQ rage fueled fans One Direction because of trivial comments made about Harry Styles, one of the sections mentioned in the bipedal hair band. Then he announced the new Doctor Who and many were angry against him another white man. This is a big problem for some, diversity is not enough racial / gender in the Time Lords. Each of their own.

lot of anger about the end of time, is what I say. If it was a liquid that would pile sandbags against doors. But where does all this? And why is it so often directed against foreign targets?

Psychologically, it is a complex issue (like many emotions tend to be). Aggression (in humans) is defined by Anderson and Bushman as "any behavior directed toward another person that is performed with the following for (immediate) harm. Furthermore, the author must believe that the behavior will not cause harm and that the target is motivated to avoid the behavior. "Someone does something you do not like (for example, a woman who expresses opinions ), do something for those experiencing harm (eg, threatening violence and assault), and I hope I can answer prevent new (eg, fail to express opinions).

is important to differentiate between anger and aggression. Anger is the emotional state of physiological arousal. You can get angry about something, but choose not to behave aggressively to another, therefore, this type of behavior is considered very mature. Similarly, can be very aggressive with someone, for example, to attack without being angry against that person, chances are that you know nothing about them except that they may have valuables in them. For the record, attacking someone who is not considered mature.

hostility is the cognitive component of aggression. These are the things you think that leads to aggressive behavior, and keeps going while you do it. Hostile aggression is when aggressive and impulsive responding to the threat / perceived insult. In contrast, instrumental aggression is when aggression is used to buy long-term goals. A colleague who eclipse openly in front of others is likely to have instrumental aggression to get promotions in their charge; cave try later with a stapler head while in the bathroom is a hostile attack

There are many theories behind human aggression. Psychodynamic, evolutionary, ethological, the hypothesis of the frustration-aggression cue-awakening, social learning and much more. Perhaps the most comprehensive decision is the general pattern of aggression. Neuroscientificallly, it is believed that the attack on the involvement of the frontal lobes, amygdala and serotonin, but the overall understanding of what appears to be limited. This is understandable, scientific study of anger that you need to make people angry. However, most psychological experiments in humans require ethical approval, and it is unlikely that the damage / active people angry. In the Venn diagram of "people easily angered" and "people who were willing to volunteer to allow scientists to tickle the" not going to have a lot of overlap, so that research opportunities are limited.

This is something that the Internet is not going well, but it provides a great thing to get angry if we have the power to alter or affect, but we offer many opportunities to move and aerate our aggression and anger into smaller goals, less important.

Obviously, the truth of the matter is much more complex, taking into social, psychological and evolutionary beyond the scope of a single blog post. And anger and aggression are not all bad. Without anger, serious injustices remain unanswered, we would be less motivated to ourselves and our loved ones protected and may not have survived as a species, and daily traffic Web Mail site collapse like a paper canoe rice .

Cornel West and Tavis Smiley do a disservice to African Americans | David Dennis

used to love these two prominent black intellectuals. But lately, the voice critics have targeted oil-bashing Obama

Dr. Cornel West and Tavis Smiley disappointed.

Cornel West and Tavis Smiley are certainly two of the most important figures of the black intelligentsia and political action in my life. West is probably the most important voice that helped shape African-American identity in recent years, and their careers that matters is one of the most needed in American history. As for Smiley, unwavering news coverage and calls for political action always measured and effective, especially in the light of other activists, celebrities candidates seeking their next book or a sponsorship contract.

That is why it pains me to say that Smiley and West have disappointed me. Of course, I'm not important to them person, but I represent a generation of African-American men who looked to the West and Smiley - to see damaged his legacy by participating in public barbecues embarrassing President Obama

I watched Smiley and West since he was a teenager, the collection of an assessment of race relations and my understanding of my place in this country. I always dreamed of having even a fraction of their impact on the American discourse. So I can not help but feel disappointed when I see these two men relegated to fighting, insults, throwing self-parody, especially when it comes to discussing the president.

Obama called West a "Rockefeller Republican in blackface" and support both the president recently criticized Al Sharpton as an example of this being "in Obama's plantation." These inflammatory comments that discredit criticism valid Smiley and West may have about how President Obama has led in the past five years. And that's a shame, because the two men were also much to offer the country as true intellectuals.

Smiley and West are supposed to be two thinkers who help eighth year of Obama to power in a broader context. They should be our moral barometers, men who advocate for change Obama promised in 2008. With the attention of an African-American president and the state of race relations in this country, it was natural that Smiley and West luster, becoming iconic leaders of his earlier work seemed to prepare. And is fixed for people like me who grew up in the example, the smiley and West show gross participate in Obama-bashing is more embarrassing than inspiration.

Smiley and West do not see it. West responded by saying the air strikes are way Obama a "comprehensive George Zimmerman," while Smiley said the speech was "low pre-sweetened Kool-Aid" (whatever that means).

These comments are all the more disappointing because they seem to come from a place of personal contempt, rather than any desire to promote intelligent discussion. West has gone on record saying that his initial break with President Obama is that I could not get tickets for his family to go to the inauguration. Smiley threw a crisis in 2008 when President Obama could not make his State of the Black Union event (also say "no thank you" to the proposal that Michelle Obama is in place).
