Horror Fans Fare Better During the Pandemic
"A new study has found that people who are fans of watching horror movies are faring well health wise during the pandemic published recently in the Journal personality and individual differences. The study conducted by Danish and American researchers asked three hundred ten participants, a series of questions about their movie and TV Diet as well as their current emotional states. This was conducted back in April and the participants were questioned. Again a month later with similar results and those results people who self reported as fans of horror films and regularly engaged with threatening fictional phenomena experienced lower levels of psychological distress during the early part of the pandemic compared to participants who watched other genres of film and TV. The researchers also categorized some of their participants into fans of a prep irs genre those who enjoyed films with zombies alien. Invasions and apocalyptic or post apocalyptic scenarios and those participants reported feeling fewer disruptions to their life by the pandemic and feeling more mentally prepared for it. Overall, the researchers also had the participants rate themselves on the Morbid curiosity scale, which is a real thing. I will link to in the show notes in case you WANNA, take it for yourself in asks you questions like if you'd ever consider watching. An autopsy if you were interested generally in the supernatural and if you'd be curious to witness various violent events if you lived in different eras throughout history and once again, the participants who rated higher on the morbid curiosity scale were more comfortable with the current pandemic. They reported having more positive experiences since it began and had no issue watching pandemic themed movies even while living through the real thing. Quoting from the research paper although most people go into a scary movie with the intention of being entertained rather than learning something scary movies. Present ample learning opportunities fiction allows the audience to explore imagined version of the world at very little cost through fiction people can learn how to escape dangerous predators, navigate novel social situations, and practice their mind reading and emotion regulation skills. One reason that horror US may correlate with less psychological distress is that horror fiction its audiences to practice grappling with negative emotions in a safe setting experiencing negative emotions in a safe setting such as during a horror film might help individuals hone strategies for dealing with fear and more calmly deal with fear eliciting situations in real life and quotes. and. So those people who regularly engage with horror may feel less a sense of shock having thought through similar scenarios before they may even be curious to learn what the situation is really like even if at the same time they're experiencing personal hardships. Including, vice what lead author. Colin scrivener isn't sure about at least not yet is whether say forcing ourselves to sit through all of the Annabelle movies tonight would help us feel any better going forward assuming the causation flows from watching horror movies to becoming more resilient it may depend on the mechanism by which this happens. For example, if the primary mechanism is practicing emotion regulation and learning to deal with fear and anxiety is possible that could help he said. Of course if someone hates horror movies, it may simply make it worse if emotion regulation skills are what are being improved in helping people deal with depend, it may also be best to watch movies that are scary to you not movies that are considered the scariest in general if this is how it works, the whole point would be for you to learn to accept feeling afraid or anxious and learn how to overcome that feeling and quotes. So I'm not saying to go watch contagion tonight but I'm also not not saying it.

Jamaican Monetary Policy: Behind The Music
"So, we called up the Central Bank of Jamaica ask what was going on with their music video and they put us in touch with Wayne, Robinson in economist and deputy governor at the Central Bank of Jamaica. Hello Wayne you're here with us now thanks for joining us I very basic question. What does the Central Bank of Jamaica do okay. Have you heard about the fit? The US. I'm sure. Yes. The equivalent of the US Fed Meka. Responsible for overseeing the financial system. Are also responsible for monetary policy. The issuing of notes and coins so I was on twitter. kind of scrolling through very distressing stories and I saw something that you posted on the Jamaican. Central. Bank. And it was like. It was all these dancers and it was like it was like a music video. Yes, think you are speaking to our, what was I looking at? Okay, the government took a policy decision. As part of its economic reform program. Transitioning or monetary policy framework and our and our monetary policy strategy. To what is called A full-fledged inflation targeting strategy. This innocence see what you're saying now is exactly like that is the kind of language I expect out of a central bank right I mean, it's very, it's very technical. Word. And precisely you're. I think you're not alluding to the challenge we face then. How do we break down just what I said to you? In language that. Every single individual can understand and can appreciate. And that was a challenge. Tour Pr Department and one of the things nor Jamaica. You knew that we're a country that is renowned and we love music and the PR department. decided to try to capitalize on this to try to tell the story in a language that everybody's speaks and everybody understands that language is is music particularly Reagan music music videos with like dancing and like everybody's talking about inflation rates. Yes. and. It's the what is it the low stable and predictable inflation? Predictable inflation. And inflation just it's it's the amount that prices rise. So inflation really high that means prices are going up a lot and and people get really scared because they're saving starts to be feel less valuable. Also. Begin to worry. So, then they will then go back on their investments as well. So that will affect employment and growth I feel like for time at least at the Central Bank of the US, there was sort of an effort made to be as cryptic as possible. The idea of clearly communicating monetary policy so that everyone can understand like that's actually not that's pretty new. Roof central banks. To recognize this imperative. And, a number of central banks have tried to change their approach. But I think coming out of the global financial crisis where one of the major challenges encountered was that are traditional tools of monetary policy I. Think Right across the globe central banks recognize that we had to augment those traditional tools and in a context we're not sion's where the market expectations and with an auditor man's. Rations really matter a lot. The central banks came to the realization that the hot to then a just how they communicate in order to affect those very same expectations with our which are important. Central banks they're known for being very formal, very stuffy cryptic, and even though there has been some movement away from that like you guys have just gone like totally in the other direction I mean this is like speedy. It's like exuberant and fun and people are dancing at it's just like so it's like the opposite of everything I associate with central banks. That was a deliberate strategy because we're. At the outset, the first thing that we needed to do was to grab people's attention. Because other say economics monetary policy issues tend to be very critic very boring very to use your term Recoba crosses as has been very stuffy. So we had to radically change that. So this is the first step was to grab attention. And then the knicks fees then was to then try and break down don't issues to do that. We had to do something radical. I feel like one of the things that central banks really try to do it's very important for them to be taken seriously because there's a lot of trust that is necessary in a banking system. was there any worry that like this might make people trust the central bank glass that it might seem like less serious? No No. No. That wasn't our concern really because, okay. One thing you really recognize with a need to connect to people. You can't build that trust unless you create a bridge on this, you meet that connection. And so this was the main strategy that we thought was necessary to make that connection in order to build that trust. Do you think other central banks should take a page from you guys and be More fun more accessible or sure almost definitely. But the precise strategy the precise methode would be a function of the audience that they're targeting. Are you in? Are you in Kingston Right now? Yes. The capital. Yes. Are you working from home? Are you going to the office now Willa? Combination? Some days in some days I I work from home. One of the strangest thing is that coming into the office? You're virtually alone here. Because we have minimal staff that that comes in. Do you Miss Your Coworkers Oh? Yes. Oh yes. The coffee breaks the chops accommodate. Over coffee. Yes. That's sort of camaraderie dot a about various direct social interaction. And the two should know we are thinking of ways you know to. Sort of encourage this evening this virtual world. Well, thank you so much for making the time I. so appreciate it. That's that's my pleasure. Stacey. Yambio. Nation.

"The Twenty Twenty Ige Nobel Prize winners were announced last night the ignoble prizes to achievements that. First make people laugh. Then make them think the prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual honor the imaginative and spur people's interest in science medicine and technology and quote. A. Common Misconception about the ignoble prizes is that they're like the razzies you know making fun of things for being bad. But as they say on their website quote, we're honoring achievements that make people laugh and then think good achievements can also be odd funny and even absurd. So combat achievements a lot of good science gets attacked because of its absurdity and a lot of bad science gets revered despite its absurdity and quote. This year, the award ceremony was held only online but fun fact for you the ceremony while always in person prior to this year has also been streamed online every single year since nineteen, ninety, five making it. One of the very first events to be streamed live online. Improbable research who runs the prize thinks that it may have been the first ever event streamed live online was. Not a music concert, which is pretty cool and now without further ADO, here's a rundown of the twenty twenty winners, the Acoustics. Prize. went to a multinational team that basically had an alligator inhale a bunch of helium with the high pitched effect you'd anticipate so that they could study how alligators communicate the psychology prize went to a North American, team who came up with a method to. Identify, narcissists based on their eyebrow movements. The Peace Prize actually went to the governments, of India and Pakistan. For quote, having their diplomats surreptitiously ring each other's doorbells in the middle of the night and then run away before anyone had a chance to answer the door and quotes and next up the physics prize went to a team who wanted to see what happens to an earthworm. When you vibrate at high frequencies, some of these I think make a lot more sense view actually dive into the paper ignoble does a really good job of describing them in the weirdest most intriguing ways possible. The Economics Prize was awarded to the team who tried to quote quantify the relationship between different countries, national income inequality, and the average amount of mouth to mouth kissing and quote. The management. Prize went to a team of professional Chinese hitmen who conducted a hit by having. So many of them pay the other one to do it with less and less money each time that eventually no one was murdered. The. Prize was awarded to Richard vetter for collecting evidence that Entomologists Aka people who study insects or indeed scared of spiders. Are Not Insects. Now, the medicine prize went to a Dutch and Belgian team for diagnosing missile phony A-. And this is one I remember seen in the headlines about when the research was published because I super identify with it missile phony is Stress at hearing other people make chewing sounds end quotes. The materials science prize sounds completely bazaar and pointless until you understand that this British and American team are archaeologists who were trying to prove something about an artifact that had been found. They won the prize for quote showing that knives manufactured from frozen human feces do not work well and quotes. And finally the Second Prize winner of the year to be more ripped from the headlines than based on academic papers. The Medical Education Prize was awarded to Jay Your Bolsonaro of Brazil. Boris. Johnson of the United Kingdom. Never Injure mody of India Andrea Manual Lopez Obrador of Mexico. Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus, Donald Trump of the USA or John of Turkey Vladimir Putin of Russia and govern Guli Berdymukhamedov of Turkmenistan. For quote using the covid nineteen viral pandemic to teach the world that politicians can have a more immediate effect on life and death. Then scientists and doctors can end quote. Wow.
