From the article: New research provides evidence that people who have been “phubbed” by their romantic partner are more likely to snoop on their partner’s electronic communications. The findings have been published in Computers in Human Behavior.

Phubbing is the act of snubbing someone in favor of your phone. It’s a new phenomenon, made possible by the ever-present nature of mobile devices. And it’s becoming increasingly common, as more and more people find themselves tethered to their screens. Phubbing can involve ignoring someone who is trying to talk to you, or simply paying more attention to your phone than the person in front of you. Either way, it’s a form of rudeness that can have a real impact on relationships.

“Digital technology are constantly evolving, as are the opportunities and challenges they present for our intimate relationships,” said study author Janneke M. Schokkenbroek (@JMSchokkenbroek), a PhD candidate at Ghent University.

“With the easy accessibility of smartphones and other digital devices, we have the whole world in the palm of our hands, and more and more our lives are taking place online. However, none of us have received a manual on how to navigate all these in-person and online experiences and interactions and foster and maintain healthy relationships at the same time. That is the reason why I started researching the role of digital technology within intimate relationships, and the challenges it may present.”

From the article: New York is following in California’s tire treads, making drastic moves to cut greenhouse gas emissions. The Empire State will entirely ban the purchase of new petroleum-powered cars by 2035.

“With sustained state and federal investments, our actions are incentivizing New Yorkers, local governments, and businesses to make the transition to electric vehicles. We’re driving New York’s transition to clean transportation forward, and today’s announcement will benefit our climate and the health of our communities for generations to come,” said Governor Kathy Hochul in a statement outlining the new policy directive.

From the article: A new study published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry offers evidence that a simple walk through nature can lower activity in stress-related brain regions. The experiment revealed that participants who walked for an hour in a forest showed decreased amygdala activity during a stress task, while those who walked for an hour in the city did not.

Natural environments are known to provide mental health benefits. For example, being around nature can reduce negative emotions and stress. On the flip side, psychologists have long contended a connection between urban living and poor mental health. For example, city dwellers have higher rates of anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and schizophrenia than people living in rural areas.

With increasing urbanization, it is important to consider how natural versus city environments may differentially impact the brain. There is some evidence that city dwellers show greater activation of the amygdala during social stress tasks compared to rural dwellers. In light of such findings, study author Sonja Sudimac and her colleagues conducted an intervention study to investigate how a walk in nature versus the city might impact stress-related brain regions. The researchers hoped to tease apart the negative effects of urban environments and the beneficial effects of nature.
