When peer pressure is a-ok. Peer pressure generally leads to things that aren't that great for you. The "one" more drink has gotten us more than once.  Well, new research says you can peer pressure your friends into exercising longer and harder. The paper was published in the journal Psychology of Sport and Exercise. Psychologist Christian Jarrett has summarized the findings for the British Psychological Society’s Research Digest. Jarret writes:
Sixty-eight regulars (nine men) at a Pilates studio were asked to perform two plank exercises, and to hold each for as long as they possibly could. The participants were given a three-minute rest between each attempt. The key intervention is that between planks, half the participants were given the "social norms" message that 80 per cent of people similar to them (in terms of age, gender and Pilates level) had achieved a 20 per cent longer time on their second effort. The other participants were told nothing of this kind, or anything else.
Participants held the plank position twice. The second time, they were told their peers could hold the plank longer, and voila the peer pressure worked. Participants held their second pose 5 percent longer than their first try. The second group who wasn't told anything, dropped by 18%. So go ahead and let the peer pressure roll. We just hope you use it for the more beneficial things. Most of the time. Spotted via: NY Mag

Documenting censorship in the Information Age. In the spring of 2014, father Wyatt Neumann took his 2-year-old daughter Stella with him on a road trip. As any father would do, he documented their journey in pictures. While on this trip, a hyper puritanical, neo-conservative group launched a cyber attack on the photographic works. They went as far as to shut down his Facebook, Instagram, and attempting to shut down his website. They even started a webpage about him and his seemingly “perverse” images. "This show, and this work, details a stark contrast between two very different ideologies and worldviews in both America and abroad. One is open minded, proud and expressive. Unafraid. The other is far more conservative; a point of view bent on shame, and the manipulations of people’s freedoms based on subjective will," Neumann says. "My children are free, they live without shame." Wyatt Neumann's “I FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR CHILDREN – the sexualization of innocence in america” is open from now until August 21st. Safari Gallery 355 West Broadway New York, NY See some more photos from the exhibit below.
