Summary of “Cleveland Cavaliers Kyle Korver plays through family tragedy”

PELLA, IOWA – ON a mid-March day in Central Iowa, Kyle Korver and his three brothers were watching the NCAA tournament together in the same room.

Summary of “The unexpected catharsis of an Instagram location page”

Bangkok is home, but that temple is where my heart is.
He tagged every location he visited, leaving behind breadcrumbs that would lead me to the temple’s location page on Instagram and filling a void I didn’t know existed.
Before my brother’s Instagram, I had never thought to search and explore the temple there.
Today, the location page is full of images of visitors touring all the corners of the temple grounds, one image or story at a time.
For as long as locals and tourists stopped by the temple, which is located near the popular bar area of Khao San Road, its Instagram location tag would always be populated by strangers who’ve unknowingly helped me visit him with every innocent click of the share button.
I think this is why it is difficult for me to quit Facebook or Instagram.
Still, for all the shallowness of social media’s mission to “Connect” people, we can’t deny that at the core, apps like Facebook and Instagram have intensified the way we find each other and discover ourselves.
I often wonder what he would have thought of Instagram if he was alive today.

Summary of “Give Thanks For Adult Siblings, Who Can Make Life Healthier And Happier”

Give Thanks For Adult Siblings, Who Can Make Life Healthier And Happier : Shots – Health News Our sibling relationships are the longest-lasting family ties we have, and can help us weather the pains and challenges of adulthood, including illness and the death of parents.
The adult sibling relationship has only sporadically been the subject of attention.
A study by Jill Suitor, a sociologist at Purdue University, and her colleagues polled 274 families with 708 adult children in 2009 and found that the majority had good feelings toward their siblings.
In families with more than one child, every sibling seems to get a label in contrast to every other sibling.
When a new baby is born, writes Purdue psychologist Victor Cicirelli in the 1995 book Sibling Relationships Across the Life Span, “The older sibling gains in social skills in interacting with the younger” and “The younger sibling gains cognitively by imitating the older.”
The literature on sibling relationships shows that during middle age and old age, indicators of well-being – mood, health, morale, stress, depression, loneliness, life satisfaction – are tied to how you feel about your brothers and sisters.
In one Swedish study, satisfaction with sibling contact in one’s 80s was closely correlated with health and positive mood – more so than was satisfaction with friendships or relationships with adult children.
Throughout adulthood, the sibling relationship “Is powerful and never static,” said Jane Mersky Leder, author of The Sibling Connection.

Summary of “Some Parentified Kids Grow Up to Be Compulsive Caretakers”

“Children’s distrust of their interpersonal world is one of the most destructive consequences of such a process,” writes Gregory Jurkovic in his book Lost Childhoods: The Plight of the Parentified Child.
From the age of eight until she left home at 15, Rene, who asked to be identified by only her first name because she was concerned about upsetting her family, says she would pick up her three younger siblings from day care, bring them home, feed and bathe them, read them stories, and put them to bed.
Just as Rene took care of her younger siblings, she and her older brother relied on each other for emotional support.
Just as Wendy assumed the role of “Mother” for the Lost Boys in Peter Pan, parentified siblings often forge symbiotic relationships, where they meet each others’ needs for guardians in a lot of different ways.
This may account for why some parentified siblings who come from abusive homes end up maintaining close, albeit complex, bonds into adulthood, with some “Continuing to attempt to fill parental needs at the expense of their own.”
“When you think about it, if you’re parentified and you leave your younger siblings, it’s like having a parent abandon them,” said Rene.
How can a parentified sibling heal? Nakazawa believes that recognizing how these psychological puzzle pieces all fit together can be a step in the right direction.
For Kiesel, the freelance writer who cared for her brother from a young age, counseling and Al-Anon have helped her feel less personally responsible for her brother, though she laments the lack of support networks for siblings who have been parentified and have their own specific needs.

Summary of “Keeping it in the family: why we pick the partners we do”

Scientists have long been interested in unravelling the subconscious processes that influence partner choice, since heritable characteristics that are favoured in sexual partners will tend to increase in frequency in subsequent generations.
First, people’s partners seem to be more likely to resemble the parent of the corresponding gender: girlfriends match mothers, and boyfriends match fathers, irrespective of whether they’re in a heterosexual or homosexual relationship.
Another possible reason is that, biologically speaking, prime reproductive partners sometimes look a little like our parents.
In our latest study, instead of looking at the similarities between partners and parents, we turned our focus onto brothers.
We collected together facial photographs of the brothers and male partners of 56 women.
The volunteers did not know that the men they saw were the brothers and partners of specific women.
The volunteers ranked every group of four partners according to how much they looked like the brother.
Although the similarity that we saw between partners and brothers was only subtle, these subtle effects matter because human behaviour is a messy thing, arising from a complex interplay of impulses and influences.

Summary of “Spain’s Long Economic Nightmare Is Finally Over”

It had long churned out mass-produced, undistinguished wines, to be shipped over the border and folded into table wines bearing a label that fetched money, “Product of France.”
The brothers had visions of bottling their own wines.
The brothers recently opened La Festival, a retailer of organic wines set up in a Barcelona neighborhood full of hardware stores turned into gastro pubs.
One wall is devoted to taps that draw from tanks full of wine.
One tap offers wine from Finca Parera, the work of Rubén Parera, a 37-year-old vintner who persuaded his own reluctant father to chop down cherry, plum and peach trees at his struggling orchard to make room for grapes.
Customers at La Festival bring in refillable growlers and leave with wine to carry home.
Which means the Virgili Brothers have engineered success by reinventing the very commodity their family began with: bulk wine.
On a recent evening, they were readying for a trip to New York to seek new customers, potentially adding their wine, bearing Catalan insults, to the wave of cars, auto parts, olive oil and other Spanish wares headed to points far away, lifting the country out of the doldrums.
