How disbelief in free will can corrupt cooperation

first_imgPinterest Share on Twitter Email LinkedIn Sharecenter_img Arriving home from work to find your partner toiling away in the kitchen, odds are you’ll jump in and help. That’s human nature. But if you’re flat out ordered to help? That’s a different story.Remove the perception of choice and you’re in fact more likely to recoil from cooperation and go a different direction altogether. Maybe you suddenly have other plans for dinner.The intricacies of free will — and how a belief in the notion, or lack thereof, impacts our behavior — are examined in a new study by UC Santa Barbara psychologists John Protzko and Jonathan Schooler. Their findings appear in the journal Cognition. Share on Facebook The results show that while people are intuitively cooperative, challenging their belief in free will corrupts this behavior and leads to impulsive selfishness. However, when given time to think, participants are able to override the inclination toward self-interest.“Challenging a person’s belief in free will corrupts the more automatic and intuitive mental processes,” said corresponding author Protzko, a postdoctoral scholar in Schooler’s META (Memory, Emotion, Thought, Awareness) Lab in UCSB’s Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences. “Our study suggests that a challenge to an individual’s belief in free will can shift this default mechanism — at least temporarily — to become intuitively uncooperative and cause an individual to act in their own self-interest.”To test why discounting the existence of free will increases the likelihood of uncooperative behavior, Protzko and Schooler recruited 144 people to play an economic contribution game called Public Goods. Subjects chose how much of their own “money” to put into a public pot. Their contributions were doubled and the communal pot was evenly divided among the players. They were also able to keep the money they didn’t pool.In one of two manipulations used to determine why behavior changes when free will is challenged, the investigators placed time constraints around participant contributions to the public pot. This, in essence, influenced the players’ sense of free will. Some subjects were told they must read instructions and decide how much to donate within 10 seconds; others were told to wait 10 seconds before making their decision.A separate manipulation was presented in the guise of an unrelated pilot study to see if reading certain passages alters mood. The passage argued that neuroscience had recently proved that our decisions, or what we perceive as decisions, are made by complex brain interactions before we have conscious access to them. Control participants read an article on whether nuclear energy is environmentally friendly.The researchers then assessed the degree of belief participants had in free will by asking them to rate, on a 1-100 scale, their agreement with the statement, “I have free will.” Those who read the neuroscience article agreed significantly less (75.6) than those who read the control passage (86.6).“Challenging a person’s belief in free will did not seem to provide them with a conscious justification for uncooperative behavior,” Protzko said. “If it did, we should have observed fewer contributions when people were given adequate time to think about their decision on the amount to contribute.“It’s very damaging to hear that we don’t have free will,” said Protzko. “Discounting free will changes the way we see things. Yet given time, we recover and go about our lives as though nothing were different.”last_img read more

Solicitor struck off in High Court after SRA wins leniency appeal

first_imgLord Justice FlauxSiaw will not have to pay any fine and will be refunded any money already paid, but the tribunal’s costs order of £3,371 remains in place.At a hearing last week, the SRA submitted that Siaw acted for a client in an immigration case and received £500 from the client’s wife, which he failed to account to his firm, south-east London practice Mountain Partnership Services. Siaw had withdrawn his evidence to the tribunal part-way through the hearing and could not explain why he was paid the money.The tribunal concluded on integrity that Siaw ‘knew that either all or part of the money was costs and he should pay it into the firm’. But, rejecting dishonesty, it found Siaw had a ‘deep if misguided belief that he was acting privately to help a friend and that at least part of the money was his own’.Flaux LJ said there were clear errors both of law and principle in the tribunal’s approach to the issue of dishonesty, not only in his handling of the client matter but in his responses to subsequent questions from the SRA. The finding of no dishonesty was ‘inconsistent’ with the finding of a lack of integrity, it was ruled.The judge said the tribunal ‘set the bar too high’ in considering Siaw had not engaged in a concerted course of action to deprive his firm of money or mislead the regulator.The judge added that while the amount involved may have been moderate, ‘any dishonesty involving handling of client money is serious and in this case was aggravated by the fact that the respondent was prepared to lie to and mislead the SRA’.Siaw had told the court he believed he was helping someone in urgent need and that he had not acted dishonestly. Born in 1959, he was admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales in September 2002.The court rejected his plea to have the case remitted to the tribunal ordered his immediate strike off. The High Court has ruled that a solicitor who received client fees into his personal account was treated too leniently by disciplinary watchdogs.In Solicitors Regulation Authority v Siaw, Lord Justice Flaux today overturned the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal decision to fine Kwame Siaw £10,000 for acting with a lack of integrity.The judge allowed the SRA’s appeal and ruled that Siaw should be struck off the roll and ordered to pay a further £14,000 costs.last_img read more

Critics: NFL decision chooses mainstream appeal over players

first_imgFile- This Jan. 5, 2017, file photo shows Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La. speaking during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Zach Gibson, File)WASHINGTON (AP) _ With its decision to ban kneeling during the national anthem, critics are accusing the NFL of prioritizing being in the good financial graces of mainstream America over the social justice passions of its players trying to draw attention to the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of police.Some opponents of the new policy now vow to never watch an NFL game again.The NFL’s new anthem policy _ similar to NBA rules in place for decades _ makes the athletes stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” or be absent from the field while it’s played.Critics say the league acted without input from its majority-Black players and buckled to pressure from some major advertisers and even President Donald Trump, who rallied his mostly-White base against players for failing to display their patriotism, shifting the debate from social justice for minorities to how to act during the anthem itself. Others, including some players, applauded the league’s action or took no issue with the policy.“I think they made this decision to placate Donald Trump and those like him who blindly equate standing for the national anthem with patriotism,” said Democratic U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus. “The country I want is a country where everyone wants to stand for the national anthem,” Richmond said, emphasizing the word “wants.”Vice President Mike Pence tweeted “(hash)Winning” and declared the decision “a win for the fans, a win for (President Trump), and a win for America.”The NFL started requiring players in the league to be on the field for the anthem in 2009 _ the year it signed a marketing deal with the military. Its new rule passed Wednesday permits players to stay in the locker room during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” but requires them to stand if they come to the field.Taking a knee during the anthem has been an issue since August 2016, when now-unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of police. The issue bubbled over from the field into living rooms as other players joined the movement, and morphed into a larger discussion last fall when Trump called on NFL owners to fire players who did not stand during the national anthem.“This is white supremacy, period. A blatant and disgusting attempt to strip Black athletes of their voice and reduce them to a number on a jersey _ all while continuing to profit off of their bodies,” said Rashad Robinson, executive director of advocacy group Color of Change.Bree Newsome of Charlotte, N.C., right, is taken into custody after she removed the Confederate battle flag from a monument in front of the South Carolina Statehouse in Columbia, S.C., on Saturday, June, 27, 2015. The flag was raised again by capitol workers about 45 minutes later. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)Bree Newsome, who climbed a pole to snatch down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina statehouse in 2015, tweeted: “For the White-owned NFL to blackball Kaepernick & then change policy to specifically target Black athletes’ protest of racism is not simply a matter of football. It is about using one of the largest stages in America to reinforce racial caste in USA.”Civil rights groups denounced the decision.“Instead of working together to address an issue disproportionately plaguing the communities of the majority of NFL players, the owners instead desire that players bury their heads, shut up, and just play football,” NAACP chairman Derrick Johnson said.Kaepernick and other NFL players who kneeled said their protests were over the shootings and other mistreatment of African Americans at the hands of law enforcement. The quarterback was not resigned by the San Francisco 49ers after beginning his protest and has not played for an NFL team since. He has filed a grievance against the league, as has out of work safety and fellow protester Eric Reid.Calls to boycott the NFL because of the anthem decision started immediately online. NFL fans previously had threatened to boycott the NFL because players were kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner, and others said they wouldn’t watch until Kaepernick was signed by a team. Now a new group is promising not to watch pro football games.“As a former NFL player I am extremely conflicted but more than likely will not be supporting anymore until this is resolved amongst other issues,” said Matthew A. Cherry, who played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals, Carolina Panthers and the Baltimore Ravens.The NFL Players Association said it would challenge any changes that violate the collective bargaining agreement.“This is fear of a diminished bottom line. It’s also fear of a president turning his base against a corporation,” Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said on Twitter . “This is not patriotism. Don’t get it confused. These owners don’t love America more than the players demonstrating and taking real action to improve it. It also lets you, the fan, know where our league stands.”Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea, a 12-year NFL veteran, said “fining players for really expressing what they believe, I think that’s kind of overboard.”Others said they approved of the compromise.“I’m going to stand for the national anthem,” Denver defensive end Derek Wolfe said. “Whatever anybody else wants to do, that’s their decision and they have the right to their opinion. So, they can do whatever they want _ as long as they stay in the locker room, I guess.”Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster shrugged his shoulders when asked about the policy and said that in a way, players are powerless.“If the team says, `This is what we’re doing,’ and ownership (does too), you either deal with it or you’re probably going to get cut,” Foster said.AP sports writers Will Graves in Pittsburgh, Bob Baum in Phoenix, Arnie Stapleton in Denver, Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia.Jesse J.

Top of golf now belongs to youth

first_imgTiger Woods, lower center, and Rory McIlroy, lower left, emerge from a horde of fans following Tiger on their way to the 18th green during the final round of the Tour Championship golf tournament Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/John Amis) HONOLULU (AP) _ Leave it to the oldest rookie to best illustrate how the PGA Tour has become such a young man’s game.Chris Thompson tried for 19 years to reach the highest level of golf, and he finally earned a PGA Tour card when he was 42. With every year he spent on mini-tours from Florida to Arizona, he couldn’t help but notice that getting better only meant keeping up.“It’s a profession that not many good players get out of, but there’s always good players getting into it,” Thompson said.Stewart Cink knows what he’s talking about it.Cink and Tiger Woods arrived on the PGA Tour at roughly the same time and were voted rookie of the year in consecutive seasons (1996 and 1997). Woods got an early start in the fall of 1996 and won two times in eight starts, so that became his rookie season. Cink’s first full season was 1997.“So really, we started playing fulltime the same year,” he said. “For the first three years, he was the only player younger than me. That put me at 23, 24, 25. There was no younger player besides Tiger Woods than me my first three years.“How many players on the tour now are 25 and under?” Cink asked. “Forty?”He was close. There are 29 players with full status on tour who are 25 or younger. That includes Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, who already have won majors and reached No. 1 in the world. It includes Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele, all of whom are among the top 10 in the world ranking.“They play a lot more, against better competition when they’re younger now,” Cink said. “And they’re just more seasoned when they come out here. There is no break-in period anymore like there used to be because you don’t need to learn.”When he started two decades ago, Cink said most players _ Woods is an exception in almost every way _ had to reinvent the wheel and learn to play the style of golf required on the PGA Tour.“Now you just come out here, guns blazing,” he said.More are on the way.Woods went straight from college to the PGA Tour. Playing on sponsor exemptions, he made enough money to secure a full card in just four tournaments, and then he won in Las Vegas in his fifth start as a pro. It took nine years before that happened again. Ryan Moore, the NCAA and U.S. Amateur champion, did it in 12 events in 2005, helped mightily by a runner-up finish in the Canadian Open.Only three other players had done that since 1980, a short list that included Phil Mickelson, who won as an amateur.Now?Spieth didn’t have a card on any tour in 2013 and effectively secured his card in six tournaments. Rahm got it done in three starts after he turned pro in 2016. What was the exception is not the norm, but it’s getting there.Scott Verplank, who won the 1985 Western Open when he was an amateur, watched the NCAA Championship in Stillwater, Oklahoma, last spring and he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. And it wasn’t just his alma mater, Oklahoma State, winning the title. Just about every team that reached the quarterfinals of match play had players who looked like they were ready for the PGA Tour.Charles Howell III also went to Oklahoma State and keeps tabs on college golf, “so I kind of knew what was coming.”“All these guys were hitting the ball over 300 yards and they all putt great,” he said. “You get Justin Thomas come out and win a bunch. Jordan Spieth comes out and wins a bunch. So when they do that, then that’s a veteran’s job gone. That’s another veteran’s job gone. That’s just how it works.”Not entirely.Golf doesn’t have a 53-man or 25-man roster like the NFL or Major League Baseball. And the beauty of golf is that no other sport can be so ageless. Remember, Mickelson won last year when he was 47 at a World Golf Championship.Howell’s point was that it’s getting even more difficult to win as tour cards go to younger and younger players.“When I first started on tour, the best players were the older players,” Howell said.Woods _ again, the exception _ was No. 1 and on his way to four straight majors in Howell’s first full season in 2001. But the top 10 in the world was filled with players in their 30s _ Mickelson and Vijay Singh, Ernie Els and Davis Love III, Colin Montgomerie and Hal Sutton.“Now I’ve gotten older, it’s shifted the other way,” Howell said. “And the best players seem to be the younger players. So you go look now at all the guys that we talk about, that we focus on _ Jordan, McIlroy, Justin Thomas, etc. These are all the young guys. And they’re the sport’s best.”last_img read more

Look…you better be nice to ‘MA!’ – Octavia Spencer stars in horror film (June 5)

first_imgLike us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourier by Bill Neal, For New PIttsburgh Courier:10—You can add in all the obvious expletives you want. All I can tell you is “Ma” is all of them. Ms. Octavia Spencer hands in a horror performance that will fit in with the likes of “Saw,” Freddy, Jason, Carrie and the Wicked Witch of the West. Please go see it for three reasons. No. 1. A Black woman is the lead in a horror flick, first time ever. No. 2. It’s good…really scary, unpredictably good. No. 3. You don’t have anything better to do!:09—Well, the Golden State Warriors, as I predicted, would win the Sunday night Game 2 of the NBA Finals over the Toronto Raptors. So now let’s see what happens as the series moves to Oakland Wednesday.The series is tied at a game apiece.:08—To that point, for all you wannabe basketball minds that think Golden State is a better team without Kevin Durant, I suggest you reset your meds cause you’re clearly delusional!:07—It’s closer than you think. Get ready, Steeler Nation. The Black and Gold report to St. Vincent College on July 26. It’s go time, baby. BTW, have you noticed no one…nobody…is talking about the deserters. You know who they are!:06—Serena Williams falls to Sofia Kenin in the third round of the French Open. Thirty-four unforced errors will do that to you. Being 37 years old doesn’t help much, either. Not to worry, greater days to come.:05—I am truly surprised that you’re surprised…that your Pittsburgh Pirates are 50/50. That’s been the presumption since they returned from spring training. Given the level of injuries the true surprise is they’re still in the 50/50 race. But, the thing to remember is there’s not a better time to be had than a day at the park. It’s the best baseball park in America, there are no bad seats, the food is the food, and it’s baseball. C’mon, man!:04—Speaking of baseball, a few things about the late, great Willie Stargell. No. 1. The likeness of his statue at the park is tremendous. No. 2. While you’re loving Josh Bell for the run he’s on, as well you should, remember the path his balls are taking have been traveled before by Mr. Stargell. No. 3. And most importantly, he was one of Western Pa.’s greatest humanitarians.:03—That being said, mark your calendar for the 45th Annual (and consecutive) Willie “Pops” Stargell Pittsburgh Allegheny County MVP Awards Luncheon (Most Valuable Person) featuring the Connie Hawkins Pro/AM Summer Basketball League Hall of Fame inductions. This year’s inductees include Billy Varner, Myron Brown, Derrick “the Mailman” Gordon, Pete Harris, Coach Ron Bougus, Ty Givner, Darrell Porter and others. Thursday, June 20, all live on “Soul Take Champions Live” sports talk show…Friday, June 21, proclaimed Connie Hawkins League Day in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County…also on June 21, Connie Hawkins Reunion at Sugar & Smoke Restaurant, 6 p.m. until… and Saturday, June 22, at noon, the Stargell MVP & Connie Hawkins Awards at Sugar and Smoke. Call Achieving Greatness Inc. for more information, 412-628-4856.:02—Don’t remain the only person in town not listening to “Soul Take— Champions Live” sports talk show every Saturday on urbanmediatoday.com from 6-7 p.m. Why, you ask? That’s where you get all the information for the big event.:01—As usual, I am late to the dance, but…“Game of Thrones” is all that and wings and fries. Mannnn they are crazy, crazy. And when they say heads will roll, they mean heads will roll! Now I get it like all of you got it. Whew!!!:00—GAME OVER!last_img read more

Moreover, the winning team captain will become the GM of Monday Night Raw. Here is the concerned tweet from WrestleVotes.Advertisement As of now, we have no idea when Kurt Angle will return. Meanwhile, Baron Corbin isn’t doing his job as the General Manager impartially. The Lone Wolf had even granted himself a match for the Universal Championship although there were far more deserving wrestlers in the locker room.The fans and the superstars in the locker room can’t stand Baron Corbin’s favoritism. They need a just and unbiased General Manager and, Kurt Angle is a worthy candidate for that.
