Biochemical Testing - Clinical correlation and Diagnosis Edited by Varaprasad Bobbarala PhD

10. This is very clearly argued in Nisbett’s book, Intelligence and How to Get It, which starts by explaining how new evidence on psychology, genetics, neuroscience, and effectiveness of education interventions has “overturned” the genetic position on intelligence. A few paragraphs later, he says that intelligence and education and professional success depend on environmental factors “that have nothing to do with genes” (Nisbett 2009, p. 2). Flynn (2007) also dismisses the genetic mediated relationship.

We also note that these works have been expanded upon by multiple researchers who followed these lines of thought.

Updated research on this, and overviews of it, include Olson (2012), Knudsen et al. (2006), Nisbett (2009), Putnam (2015), and Tough (2012). Also, seminal research was published by Bloom (1964): his book not only acknowledged the importance of the environment, but also clarified that understanding the environment is key to more fully explaining the development and change in human characteristics.

14. A repercussion for this finding is that using noncognitive skills to explain cognitive skill development helps explain performance gaps between black and white children, as argued by Grissmer and Eiseman (2008).

Because they have lower baseline odds of graduating from high school, black and Hispanic students who do not read well in third grade are twice as likely as their white peers to fail to graduate. This disadvantage is further exacerbated if the student grows up in poverty, as is true of a range of other academic outcomes (Hernandez 2011). Researchers suggest that third grade is the time at which school transitions from a place in which students are “learning to read” to one that expects them to be “reading to learn,” and those who cannot do so thus experience behavioral and other problems that lead to diminished odds of subsequently completing high school (Miles and Stipek 2006; Griffin, Burns, and Snow 1998).

16. While largely acknowledged in other disciplines, noncognitive skills have been relatively ignored in the economics area, at least when considered from an empirical point of view. Major recent compendiums studying individuals’ personality skills in economics are Borghans et al. (2008) and Almlund et al. (2011). The interest in this area is in great expansion and includes a long lifetime perspective. Better earlier skills can affect the success on the education ladder, but also be consequential for the work and well-being of the individuals. Some of these associations are also covered in Heckman and Kautz (2012).

“Self-productivity” of skills means that current levels of skills increase the skills attained at later stages. “Dynamic complementarity” between investments in the two types of skills implies that current levels raise the productivity of investment at later stages (see Cunha and Heckman 2007 for more details).

The Cut

Masturbation has always been a favorite subject for Louis C.K. While many comedians — particularly male comedians — appreciate a good dick joke, C.K.’s preoccupation with the subject takes on more sinister (and creepy) overtones in the light of today’s New York Times report in which five women accused C.K. of sexual misconduct , detailing instances in which the comic either masturbated in front of them or expressed a desire to do so.

As the Times says, “The stories told by the women raise sharp questions about the anecdotes that Louis C.K. tells in his own comedy. He rose to fame in part by appearing to be candid about his flaws and sexual hang-ups, discussing and miming masturbation extensively in his act — an exaggerated riff that some of the women feel may have served as a cover for real misconduct.”

Here are 17 C.K. jokes that highlight his long-running obsession with the theme.

“Sexual perversion is a problem. You can’t stop it. People gotta do what they gotta do. This country’s pretty perverted. We have to jack off to everything. Sex is in everything. You watch the news and there’s like a woman telling, like oohh and in Libya, and I’m like yeah well tell me about Libya [makes hand gesture of him masturbating]. Tell me about Libya. Say Libya again, come on. I’m fucking right up to my screen, my flat screen. Come on, say Libya again. [Grunts.]” Louis CK: Live at the Beacon Theatre , 2011

“My problem is very simple — trying to find a place in my house where I can masturbate without somebody bothering me. And that’s getting really difficult, there’s nowhere to go. And my wife has her mother living with us. I’m on the streets now with nowhere to go. Now I know when I see a guy in the West Side Highway, jerking off in plain daylight. That’s not a homeless guy, that’s a married man right there. He’s got nowhere to go. Fuck it. Fuck you. Go ahead and look, man. What else am I going to do?” — Louis CK: One Night Stand , 2005

“She always wants to know shit about it, she always asks me stuff, my wife’s like, ‘Well, do you think about me when you’re doing that?’ Are you fucking high? I can think about anybody, that’s magical. Why the fuck would I, I married you? Do women really think their husbands are going, oooh, my wife? Oh yeah, that’s fucking hot. Oh yeah, picking her up at the airport and getting yelled at, yeah that’s fucking hot.” — Louis CK: One Night Stand , 2005

“Masturbation doesn’t bring much joy to guys. Women seem to like masturbating; they put flower petals on the pillow and they’re like ‘AHHH, ME!’ or whatever, you know. And the guys are like ‘Ah, shit … Ah, fuck it all … Goddammit.’ Sometimes you find ecstasy but it’s followed by the deepest self-hate and depression you’ve ever felt. It’s an amazing drop from way up here this like, ‘Aw, yeah, aw … What the fuck is wrong with me, goddammit! I got to get to work, I don’t have time for this shit right now!’” — Louis CK: One Night Stand , 2005
