source VH-studio / Shutterstock A study in 2010 found that small talk was associated with lower life satisfaction. But a follow up study has found this actually isn’t the case. Small talk isn’t as important as deep, meaningful conversations – but it isn’t bad either. Lead researcher Matthias Mehl said it is more like an “inactive ingredient” in our social lives. The study also found no difference between how extroverts and introverts approached small talk. Few people admit to liking small talk. A banal conversation about the weather or repeating tales about your weekend to your colleagues may be fine in the office kitchen, but it’s not how we’d want the majority of our conversations to go.

Everybody agrees that medical treatments should be based on sound evidence. Hardly anybody agrees on what sort of evidence counts as sound.

Sound decisions come from considering the evidentiary database as a whole. That’s why meta-analyses are also a popular candidate for best evidence. And in principle, meta-analyses make sense. By aggregating many studies and subjecting them to sophisticated statistical analysis, a meta-analysis can identify beneficial effects (or potential dangers) that escape detection in small studies. But those statistical techniques are justified only if all the studies done on the subject can be obtained and if they all use essential similar methods … [Read more...] about Informed wisdom trumps rigid rules when it comes to medical evidence
This is part of our Road Trip 2017 summer series "The Smartest Stuff," about how innovators are thinking up new ways to make you — and the world around you — smarter. I lean back against the gray, microfiber-lined cushions inside an egg-shaped pod, and prop my feet on the matching footrest. Black headphones fit snugly over my ears as a spa concierge taps on a Samsung tablet mounted beside me."This meditation dome is your personal retreat," the screen reads. "It is a space to calm your senses, relieve stress and align your mind and body."Exactly what I need. The concierge lowers an illuminated white dome over my body, making me feel like I'm inside a cocoon. I can see my feet peeking out from under the pod, warding off any sense of claustrophobia. The dome is bathed in a soft light from the LEDs, which glow bright green (a color that "stimulates inner peace," according to the brochure).A woman's soothing voice tells me to close my eyes. "Take the brief pause … [Read more...] about Try this meditation tech to fight tech stress. Seriously.
