[Embargoed until 4:00 p.m. ET Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007 to coincide with a presentation at the American Psychological Association meeting in San Francisco.] SAN FRANCISCO � Shiite vs. Sunni. Red state vs. Blue state. Immigrant vs. native. While it may appear that conflict is an inevitable part of interaction between groups, research actually suggests that fighting, hating and contempt between groups is not a necessary part of human nature, according to an Ohio State University professor of psychology . �There's still this belief that a group's cohesion depends on conflict with other groups, but the evidence doesn't ...
Media coverage of the conflict has been dogged by allegations of bias on both side. These perceptions of bias, possibly exacerbated by the hostile media effect , have generated more complaints of partisan reporting than any other news topic and have led to a proliferation of media watchdog groups on both sides. 1 Cite error: There are tags on this page, but the references will not show without a tag; please see the .

Sassounian: Senate Should Scrutinize Bryza Before Confirming Him ...
After a lengthy delay, Azerbaijan consented last week to the appointment of Matthew Bryza as U.S. ambassador to Baku, an unnamed American official told EurasiaNet.org. It is noteworthy that there has not been an American ambassador in Azerbaijan since last July. When John Evans was recalled as ambassador to Armenia in 2006 for using the term Armenian Genocide, the Bush Administration pressured the Senate to quickly confirm his successor, claiming that the United States urgently needed an ambassador in that country. Surprisingly, there has not been a similar sense of urgency in Washington, during the year-long absence of a U.S. ... market research, surveys and trends

The Psychology of Prejudice: Ingroup Love or Outgroup Hate ...
Allport (1954) recognized that attachment to one's in groups does not necessarily require hostility toward outgroups. Yet the prevailing approach to the study of ethnocentrism, in group bias, and prejudice presumes that in group love and outgroup hate are reciprocally related. Findings from both cross-cultural research and laboratory experiments support the alternative view that in group identification is independent of negative attitudes toward outgroups and that much in group bias and intergroup discrimination is motivated by preferential treatment of in group members rather than direct hostility toward outgroup members. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Since it touched on two subjects of great interest to readers of The Lede, Wikipedia and Israel, it is not surprising that Friday’s post, “ Wikipedia Editing for Zionists ” — about an initiative to edit entries in the online encyclopedia to make them “balanced and Zionist in nature” — has generated an impassioned debate in one of our comment threads. While several Israeli readers argued that the initiative was necessary in a part of the world where even the term “facts on the ground” is used as a euphemism — for the dispute over Israeli settlements built on occupied ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Are We Moving Toward a Clan Society?
The controversy over the Park51 Islamic cultural and religious center in New York has generated controversy that is way out of proportion to any rational assessment of its importance. The so-called "Mosque at Ground Zero" is neither -- it is a community center with a prayer space located three blocks from Ground Zero. If you're not familiar with New York, three blocks is much farther than it sounds -- the density of buildings and population means that there is an awful lot between the two sites, including churches, businesses, strip clubs, and all the accoutrements of life in the big city. Try as I might, I ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up. Again, if two lie together, they are warm; but how can one be warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him. --Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Welcome to the Group Dynamics Resource Page. For centuries, sages and scholars have been fascinated by groups--by the way they form, change over time, dissipate unexpectedly, achieve great goals, and sometimes commit great wrongs.

advantages: helps hold the executive( usually top 20 people of winning party) to account, lets other parties have their say, also a way of swaying others towards your views. disadvantages: can create more conflict and also if the winning party has a large majority they would be much harder to hold to account :) It depends on the context Political debates are a great forum to reach people and express ideas High School debates on different issues raise awareness I think the main advantage is that you get to voice your oppinions and listen to others without being interupted The disadvantage is that you are judged on you view points ...
