Around the Blogs, Vol. 97: Heritability, Indians, Blotzheim [delete commas to obtain band name]

1. "The national news media appears to be turning into a giant conspiracy to feed me material." A rather funny post by Steve Sailer. From the same author: A good example of environmental influences on heritability (estimates), as a part of musings on the height of actors.

2. "Close friendships appear to counteract genetic vulnerability to depression in girls, but not boys" (Christian Jarrett/Brendgen et al.). Suggestive, but correlation-not-causation/endogeneity alert.

3. German name of the day (Andrew Hammel)

Enjoy your weekend!
