more comprehensive reviews of psychopathy. Although the most prominent descriptions of psychopathic characteristics were found in the 20th century (McGillian, 1961), the term psychopathy has seen an increasing number of descriptions of characteristics and behaviours from all over the world (e.g., Dadd, 1989; Hare, 1994), with the development of a range of criteria in the subsequent years (e.g., Hare, 1990). This review focuses on the most common psychopathic traits across different populations, in order to evaluate whether their prevalence is increasing. The article uses data from a number of large epidemiological studies, focusing on those populations which are representative of the general population. Because of the variation between samples, and the fact that the prevalence, the estimated prevalence, may not be consistent across different samples, the data presented represent national averages.A new trailer for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has hit the web, and I’m not going to share all of them because of spoilers, but we already know one big thing about the latest installment in the Captain America series: Marvel Studios is making the fight look all the better while keeping things from becoming too complicated.

A new piece of artwork and production stills have been released, and the new pics show off a more grounded style of fighting in Civil War, but that doesn’t mean the battles get super simple.
According to the synopsis from Marvel, Cap will still be able to punch his way through Civil War without any trouble, because he has his team to help him make the tough calls:
A major milestone in the evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes as Captain America battles not one, but two superpowered civil war supers: Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans).
The two superhero teams come to blows when Stark and Rogers lead the forces of good against Cap and the new Avengers.

It appears that the cost of doing nothing to fight climate change is even higher than previously thought, according to new research.
The study examined the “social cost of carbon” – the damage that would occur if we stopped emitting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Using this figure, the researchers found a “social cost for inaction” of at least £8bn ($12bn), they suggest.
The government has promised to reduce emissions by a fifth in the UK by 2050.
In the US, climate change is also considered a national security threat.
And a recent report by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) concluded that global inaction on climate change would be “dangerous, economically destructive and politically destabilising”.
How ‘social cost of carbon’ works
The social cost of carbon is the net present value of all climate change damages over the course of a generation – and is calculated by dividing the total cost of all climate change damages that can reasonably be expected to occur (based on the latest scientific and quantitative research) from the current cost of avoiding them (which is considered to be a conservative estimate).
According to the report’s authors, it is important that policy makers consider the costs of inaction as well to ensure that they achieve the best possible outcome at the lowest possible cost.
