Because of Facebook my niece found her dad after 18 years

Facebook is for connecting with others and providing emotional support during difficult times in our busy lives.

Facebook helped my niece find her father after 18 years. She met her dad for the first time at age of 18 with lots of tears and hugs.

My mother loves to watch funny videos at Facebook and Youtube.

And learn about beautiful places all over the world. With Facebook, it seems that the world is within grasp.

I met all my high school classmates because of Facebook.  And continued our friendship until we age.

It is our responsibility to put good content without intolerance and hate and block those who spread fake news and hate.

We need to guard our democracy, our freedom and our peace.

Thanks to Facebook and we hope to help Facebook stop hate and spread love , tolerance and freedom.

We cannot change a man, our happiness is our priority

happy.JPGWe cannot change or wait for a man to make us their priority, our happiness is our priority.

My girlfriend waited for a man who did not make her happiness a priority and receive no affection.

So, I told her that her happiness is her priority. She cannot change him or wait for him to make her his priority. She received no affection for 2 years waiting for him to come back.

Because she thinks that her life as divorce woman is now totally different from the past including her social activities. She said he is controlling that no white woman can put up with him. She raised her children alone and never received any help in parenting from the father who is now separated from her and been with so many different women. She thinks he will change. He did not.

Be free ladies. We are here to receive happiness from what we do, the love we share with others. If the love does not come back, let that person be free for he is getting what he wants from others.

Let your future be free from bondage of any contractual agreement that you are not receiving the benefit of happiness and joy, only obligation.

We are in the current society that women must not be obligated to do duties alone and keep giving without receiving love back.

Women must keep their happiness a priority. In doing this, love will enter your house as you love yourself first and no man can step all over you like a piece of rug.

Love yourself and you will find your soul mate. Keep the positive spirit, contentment and love and spread it and it will come back a hundred fold.

Be blessed,

Connie

Motherhood is forever, a poem by Connie Dello Buono

To love unconditionally to our children takes patience and full acceptance

Mothers bonded to their newborn more than their partners

For the newborn has no way to communicate except by crying

And mother’s heart melt easy and even can sense far and future accidents

As if the umbilical cord is intangible and operates remotely from 0 to old age.

I love you forever and always, says a mother while singing a lullaby to her baby.

We cry when our children curse us and we stood our ground and tell them no,

we cannot accept their cursing since we are mothers who gave them life but

only loaned to us by God.

We go about our daily chores mindful of our children, 24 hours and 7 days a week

as they just came out of our bodies like magical creatures

We cannot stop holding them and give them breastmilk every two hours

We forgo our needs for a moment

And then they have grown as young adults, they say “mom do text me ahead of time for any meeting, as I’m busy”

We pursed our lips, we forgive and understand for they will be our children forever

And always, in our thoughts, we forgo looking for another partner and gave all our time with them

Knowing that at the end and every time, they will always need us their mothers

For motherhood is forever.

Learn a new dance, movement , language to grow new brain cells

Surround yourself with people who will let you get the optimum potential that your brain can do to be successful in your own terms. You control your destiny, what your career will be , your finances and happiness.

Find an inspiration. I want to be a doctor before I reached the age of 80. I will use the internet for free skills and knowledge while I save for the time to be full time student as Nurse Practitioner first.

Every time we learn a new dance, movement , language or reach new accomplishments and solve new challenges, our brain cells grow.

So, grow your brain cells and be in control. Do not use the excuse that someone introduced you to a path that later on is a failure. Use that failure to get up and do a meaningful project you own and be proud of. I believe in the human potential and the power of the mind to control the brain to move and do some learning.

How the Brain Responds to Injustice

How the Brain Responds to Injustice

Summary: A new study implicates oxytocin in corrective punishment that helps maintain fairness.

Punishing a wrongdoer may be more rewarding to the brain than supporting a victim. That is one suggestion of new research published in JNeurosci, which measured the brain activity of young men while they played a “justice game.”

Study participants played a game in which two players — a “Taker” and a “Partner” — each start out with 200 chips. The Taker can steal up to 100 of the Partner’s chips, and then the Partner can retaliate by spending up to 100 chips to reduce the Taker’s stash by up to 300 chips. Participants played as either a Partner or an Observer, who could either punish the Taker or help the Partner by spending chips to increase the Partner’s stash.

Mirre Stallen and colleagues found that participants were more willing to punish the Taker when they experienced injustice directly as a Partner as opposed to a third-party Observer.

The decision to punish was associated with activity in the ventral striatum, a brain region involved in reward processing, and distinguishable from the severity of the punishment.

Before beginning the experiment, all participants were given a nasal spray, with some randomly assigned to receive the hormone oxytocin, which has been suggested to have a role in punishing.

Participants in the oxytocin group chose to give more frequent, but less intense, punishments.

This finding implicates oxytocin in corrective punishments akin to a “slap on the wrist” to maintain fairness.

Abstract

Neurobiological Mechanisms of Responding to Injustice

People are particularly sensitive to injustice. Accordingly, deeper knowledge regarding the processes that underlie the perception of injustice, and the subsequent decisions to either punish transgressors or compensate victims, is of important social value. By combining a novel decision-making paradigm with functional neuroimaging, we identified specific brain networks that are involved with both the perception of, and response to, social injustice, with reward-related regions preferentially involved in punishment compared to compensation. Developing a computational model of punishment allowed for disentangling the neural mechanisms and psychological motives underlying decisions of whether to punish and, subsequently, of how severely to punish. Results show that the neural mechanisms underlying punishment differ depending on whether one is directly affected by the injustice, or whether one is a third-party observer of a violation occurring to another. Specifically, the anterior insula was involved in decisions to punish following harm, while, in third-party scenarios, we found amygdala activity associated with punishment severity. Additionally, we employed a pharmacological intervention using oxytocin, and found that oxytocin influenced participants’ fairness expectations, and in particular enhanced the frequency of low punishments. Together, these results not only provide more insight into the fundamental brain mechanisms underlying punishment and compensation, but also illustrate the importance of taking an explorative, multi-method approach when unraveling the complex components of everyday decision-making.

SIGNIFICANCE STATEMENT

The perception of injustice is a fundamental precursor to many disagreements, from small struggles at the dinner table to wasteful conflict between cultures and countries. Despite its clear importance, relatively little is known about how the brain processes these violations. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, we combine methods from neuroscience, psychology, and economics to explore the neurobiological mechanisms involved in both the perception of injustice as well as the punishment and compensation decisions that follow. Using a novel behavioral paradigm, we identified specific brain networks, developed a computational model of punishment and found that administrating the neuropeptide oxytocin increases the administration of low punishments of norm violations in particular. Results provide valuable insights into the fundamental neurobiological mechanisms underlying social injustice.
