Growing up in a house full of books is major boost to literacy and numeracy, study finds

Led by Dr Joanna Sikora of Australian National University, academics analysed data from more than 160,000 adults, from 31 different countries, who took part in the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies between 2011 and 2015. All participants were asked how many books there were in their homes when they were 16 – they were told that one metre of shelving was equivalent to around 40 books – and went through literacy, numeracy and information communication technology (ICT) tests to gauge their abilities.

While the average number of books in a home library differed from country to country – from 27 in Turkey to 143 in the UK and 218 in Estonia – “the total effects of home library size on literacy are large everywhere”.

“Adolescent exposure to books is an integral part of social practices that foster long-term cognitive competencies spanning literacy, numeracy and ICT skills,” they write. “Growing up with home libraries boosts adult skills in these areas beyond the benefits accrued from parental education or own educational or occupational attainment.”

Teenagers in a home with almost no books went on to have below average literacy and numeracy levels, the researchers found.

What a daft fucking article.  Here is a hypothesis which is much more likely to be true than 'books exude an IQ-boosting aura': Smart people tend to read more books.  Smart people have smart kids, largely due to genetics.  It is the intelligence of the smart parents causing the books and the positive outcomes for kids, not the books causing the positive outcomes for kids. 

MAYBE the underlying study talks about causation and it's just the journalist who sucks...

Yes, you are absolutely right of course, we evil alt-rightest here know it, and so do most of serious experts in the field.

It's pretty funny how well the PISA test scores correlate with the study: http://factsmaps.com/pisa-worldwide-ranking-average-score-of-math-science-reading/

5.    Estonia    524.3
23.    United Kingdom    499.7
50.    Turkey    424.3
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

Man Finland has dropped the fuck down. We were up way higher back when I attended those, but that's over 10 years ago. Soon they're going to downgrade our status from asian to white.



I'm sure the yuge drop in the last decade has absolutely nothing to do with the country and its schools being swarmed with low-IQ mudbloods though.  :tuss:

26.    Sweden    495.7

At least you're ahead of Sweden and likely the gap will grow larger as Sweden switches into fifth gear in the race to become a third world country.

White Flight as a phenomenon/problem is tiny in Finland compared to the rest of the west. There's some brain drain targeted towards lower taxation/higher wage countries though. The cost of living is extremely high here, unless you're a welfare leech.

Also lol no military your stupidity might actually eclipse your obvious mental illness I/O.

Quote
The man who shot and killed two people in a Tallahassee yoga studio appears to have made a series of racist and misogynistic videos four years ago.

Police say that on Friday night Scott Paul Beierle posed as a customer at the yoga studio and then suddenly started shooting people. He killed two women and injured five others. Beierle then fatally shot himself.

In a series of videos that were posted to YouTube in 2014, Beierle criticized how black people dress and speak and called women who date black men "whores." In another video he also complained about an "invasion" from Central America, while in another he ranted about the women who he said had caused him to become a misogynist.

Soldier found guilty of first-degree murder in triple homicide with ties to 'furry' community

https://www.stripes.com/news/us/soldier-found-guilty-of-first-degree-murder-in-triple-homicide-with-ties-to-furry-community-1.555875

Quote
SANTA ANA, Calif. (Tribune News Service) — A 23-year-old Army mechanic who confessed to killing a Fullerton couple and their friend in order to “save” a teen he believed was being sexually abused was convicted Thursday of first-degree murder.

A Santa Ana jury convicted Joshua Acosta of the special circumstances killings of Christopher Yost, 34, his wife, Jennifer Yost, 39, and their friend, Arthur “Billy” Boucher, 28, who prosecutors said were ambushed and executed while they slept in a Fullerton home in the early morning of Sept. 24, 2016.

Acosta, who was stationed at Fort Irwin, told police that he carried out the killings in order to protect the Yost’s oldest daughter, then-17-year-old Katlynn Goodwill. Acosta met Goodwill, along with her parents and co-defendant Frank Felix, in the “furry” community, made up of people who like to dress up as animals and take on their personas.

In a recorded confession played during the trial, Acosta described using a shotgun to shoot Boucher in the head while he slept on a couch, shooting Jennifer Yost between the eyes in her bedroom, then shooting Christopher Yost as he tried to flee from the Fullerton home. Acosta told detectives that the Yost family was a “festering wound” that he had “cauterized,” while Boucher was “collateral damage.
...
Goodwill testified that Christopher Yost, her stepfather, molested her on a weekly basis between the ages of 7 and 15. Goodwill alleged that Felix, another friend she met in the furry community, had “blackmailed” her into having sex with him by threatening to tell her mother about the alleged sexual abuse.

...and nothing of value was lost. Yiff in hell, furfags and Godspeed aspie furslayer.

Amerikkkan X-tian missionary killed for trying to disrespectfully push his cloud-giant beliefs on those who don't want to hear it!
 :christina:


That's how my local reddit reacted at first cause the guy was from Tulsa.

https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/local/isolated-tribesmen-kill-oru-grad-on-remote-indian-island/article_19ef123d-8370-5596-8c69-fbf669b56d45.html

But he was actually killed for border security reasons by a little island tribe who are known to shoot outsiders full of arrows. The only outsider blood in their ethnostate is going to be outsider blood that's been spilled all over their beach. You can probably guess they aren't white. And neither was the missionary lol. NPCs HATE this story.

Jewish leaders call for new editions of the Bible and the Koran to carry trigger warnings highlighting anti-Semitic passages

There are several themes in the New Testament that have come under fire for their use as justification for anti-Semitic attitudes.
These include the blame of Jews for the death of Jesus and the seemingly stubborn nature of the Jewish people and their disloyalty to God.

Other recommendations include religious leaders and thinkers 'publicly denouncing as unholy writ' canonical or quasi-canonical writings of religious anti-Semites.

It reads: 'God’s revelation is thus marred by human fallibility. Beginning with the New Testament, divine revelation expresses itself in Christian holy texts that also express a form of hatred.

Suddenly I feel a distinct religious kinship with my European ancestors who probably kicked Jews out of their German principality. Forget Uncle Adolf, we need another Martin Luther right about now.
Quote from: George Lincoln Rockwell
The Conservatives have a slogan which I think is despicable and defeatist: "It's better to be dead than red." And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

The New Testament? God talks mad shit about the Jews to Moses in the Old Testament. How do the kikes explain that away?

"Bitcoin miners hit hard by the cryptocurrency's crash may be throwing in the towel," reports Bloomberg:
Quote
The Bitcoin network's hash rate, one way of gauging the computing power dedicated to mining the digital currency, dropped about 24 percent from an all-time high at the end of August through Nov. 24, according to Blockchain.com. While the decline may have partially resulted from miners switching to other cryptocurrencies, JPMorgan Chase & Co. says some in the industry are losing money after Bitcoin's price tumbled. "This suggests that prices have declined to a point where mining is becoming uneconomical for some," JPMorgan strategists led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou wrote in a Nov. 23 report, in reference to the falling hash rate...

The break-even cost to mine a single Bitcoin using Bitmain's Antminer S9 rig was estimated at $7,000 in a Nov. 16 report by Fundstrat Global Advisors, though the level is probably lower for some miners with access to cheap electricity and equipment... A big miner shakeout could be bad news for chipmakers including Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Nvidia Corp. who supply the industry, along with mining-rig designers like Bitmain Technologies Ltd. that are pursuing initial public offerings.

The price of bitcoin dropped 37.4% just in the month of November -- its worst monthly decline in seven years, since August 2011 when it fell from roughly $8 to $4.80. And the decline in bitcoin also dragged down 24 of the top 25 largest cryptocurrencies, reports CoinDesk. "What's more, the average performance of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization was -30 percent, while the average performance of all 25 was -37 percent..."

Quote
"The total capitalization of the cryptocurrency market has now lost over $690 billion and 83 percent of its value since reaching its all time high north of $820 billion this past January, according to CoinMarketCap."

I bolded the important part.

I'm not happy about this, but for folks who have any investments in Cryptocurrencies, well, things don't look very good. It was always looking like a bubble but it looks like it has finally burst.

Market cap is a shitty measurement for BTC and nothing more than marketing. The Cryto market didn't just lose over $690 billion.

I'm not a fan of crypto or the "investors" who dabble in it, but this is typical proto-kike, doomsday article reporting.

  :smalljewrub: "Oy vey! One point three billion! 83 percent loss! Do not call attention to our loss figures which point to difference between all-time peak and current price. The bubble has gone bust and crypto is doomed for good, this time! Sell now before it's completely worthless and re-invest that money in Goldman Sachs series B ETFs!"
