Trump has turned words into weapons. And he's winning the linguistic war | George P Lakoff and Gil Duran | Opinion | The Guardian
Then there are what cognitive scientists call “salient exemplars” – well-publicized individual cases, where wide publicity leads the public to take them as having a high probability and typifying a whole class. Trump turns them into weaponized stereotypes. He is a master at defaming entire groups of people as liars, rapists, terrorists – or in the case of US law enforcement and intelligence agencies – agents of corruption.

“I Feel Like Don Quixote”: Michael Cohen’s Legal Shake-Up Foretells a Possible Battle with Trump | Vanity Fair
This period of limbo has weighed considerably on Cohen, who had already felt isolated by Trump and his inner circle in Washington, who have distanced themselves from him. He was also hurt by the lack of support he received from the Trump family. Earlier this year, he heard that Eric Trump was telling associates that he felt Cohen was sloppy in the way he handled the Daniels agreement, which rankled Cohen. “I feel like Don Quixote,” he has said to people close to him, intimating that he seeking justice. “It’s ruining my children’s lives. It’s ruining my wife’s life. It’s worse than a pit in your stomach.”

The health impact of separating migrant children from parents - BBC News
Nelson is a principal investigator on the Bucharest Early Intervention Project, a long-term study of 136 abandoned infants and toddlers who wound up in orphanages in Romania in 2000. Nelson and his colleagues have been following the children for 18 years, and says they have observed very different patterns of brain activity in children who were placed in foster care versus those who stayed in an institution.

"What we see in kids who have been reared in institutions, that is separation from their parents, is a dramatic reduction in the brain's electrical activity," he says. "If they're then removed and put into good homes before the age of two, a lot of this recovers. But if they're older than two, meaning, say, the separation has occurred for two years, there's no recovery. The brain continues to produce dramatically less brain activity."
