    Is Religion an Excuse for Ivanka Trump’s ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ Photo?

    The backlash is still brewing over a photo that first daughter Ivanka Trump shared of herself and her husband, Jared Kushner, all dressed up for a black-tie event on Saturday night, a situation that has been described as having heavy “Let them eat cake” overtones. To recap: As people around the country protested President Trump’s executive order that temporarily bans the citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States and immediately halted the U.S. refugee program for four months — with Syrian refugees barred indefinitely — the couple posted a glamorous date-night image with Ivanka wearing a $5,000 metallic dress.

    Religious Kids Aren’t as Good at Sharing, Study Finds

    Some families may think that religion helps kids become more empathetic and giving toward others, but a surprising study published in the journal Current Biology found the opposite to be true: The study revealed that children from religious backgrounds were less likely to be altruistic, defined as lacking selfishness and showing a desire to help others. In the study, which involved 1,170 children between ages 5 and 12 from six countries — the United States, Canada, China, Jordan, South Africa, and Turkey — the kids were given two tasks: First, an altruism task, in which they played a version of the “Dictator Game.” In the game, they were given 10 stickers and had the opportunity to share the stickers with another unseen kid. The University of Chicago researchers measured altruism based on the average number of stickers shared. STORY: Here’s How to Raise Kind Kids The second task tested moral sensitivity: The children watched an animated short in which one character pushes or bumps into another, either by accident or on purpose.
