Another manifestation of the same problem can perhaps be gleaned from Facebook data feed?

For a third insight, look at young people in a restaurant, ranging from Beijing to London or Los Angeles – they’re typically looking down at iPhones, rather than talking.

  1. Dr Alf brings us a useful article on a subject that he is probably better qualified to write and speak about than I am.

    My late father and mother engaged in “deep and meaningful conversations”,sometimes at more decibels than might be regarded as easy on the ear by those who like to communicate in whispers. They also used to speak the truth and did not communicate in riddles. It worked for them over just under 50 years and it works for others in countries that truly value marriage and traditional family life.

    Those who clearly know how to make things work are living examples that “rugged individualists” and narcissists who think only about themselves might do well to try and emulate.
