One in a hundred children have psychopathic traits

Can children from normal families be psychopaths?

Psychopathic traits in children need to be addressed to stop them developing into the stuff of horror movies

Many of us 1wonder what makes psychopaths. When we hear about Stephen Paddock shooting into an innocent crowd in Las Vegas or the ten-year-old Liverpuddlians who hit two-year-old James Bulger with bricks and left him on a train line in 1993 to be 2split in half by a train, we desperately want to understand why. If we could only understand, maybe we could 3fix it.

Around 1% of children have what experts call “4callous, unemotional traits” – behavior that would be considered psychopathic in an adult.

Pedro Almodovar exported Spanish identity abroad

What is the essence of being Spanish?

Silicon Valley's quest for eternal life

I want to live!

Tech giants spend millions on research into extending the human life span

There are a number of ways to live longer: you can give up smoking, take exercise, eat healthily and less. You can even 1ditch sex – apparently eunuchs live 14 years longer than 2average.

Since 1900, we have gained almost 50 years. While most Spaniards lived to 35 in 1900, they can now hope to get to 83. So it seems only natural that we should be trying to extend our lives again by another 50 years – to say 130. Or does it?

tourism phobia

Poor Tourist? No thanks!

Tourism-phobia is growing in Europe and poor tourists will suffer

First it’s immigrants, now it’s tourists. From Barcelona to Berlin, locals 1have had it with visitors, particularly poor ones, which, of course, are in the majority.


Tourism brings Spain 11% of its GDP while Amsterdam earns €80 million a year from tourists looking for Dutch 2charm and coffee shops where they can smoke marijuana without having the police breathing down their necks.

Prince Harry: Britain’s King of Hearts

Like his mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry is a man of the people. He has a natural way of connecting. Perhaps because he is not afraid of 1embracing his vulnerability.

Researcher Professor at Houston University, Brené Brown says, “Connection is why we’re here. It’s what gives us purpose and meaning to our lives… In order for connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be seen, vulnerably seen.”

Walled Off Hotel in the West Bank

Banksy, the West Bank and the Walled Off Hotel

Everyone has heard of the West Bank and Gaza, the Occupied Palestinian Territories. But few have cared to visit the two pieces of land the Palestinians ended up with in 1948, and which have been occupied by the Israelis since the 1967 War. Now, with his Walled Off Hotel that opened in March, Banksy, the anonymous British street artist and colleague of Sam 3, hopes to change that.


Few visit because the West Bank and Gaza are synonymous in our minds with conflict. What happens in this corner of the world has been happening for so long, we have become immune to it. It sounds 1unfair but it is so far away. The conflict looks as though it will never be solved. And it doesn’t affect us.
