"Our DNA contains roughly 100,000 pieces of viral DNA. Altogether, they make up about 8 percent of the human genome. ... Some of our ancient viruses may be protecting us from disease; others may be raising our risks for cancer, among other conditions. “It’s not an either-or — are these things good or bad? It’s a lot more complicated than that,”" (Carl Zimmer of NY Times, partly quoting Aris Katzourakis)
"[T]elling kids they're smart causes them to fear doing anything that might disprove this praise. That leads them to avoid pushing themselves and making mistakes, just the sort of striving that drives learning. ... it might also make them prone to cheating as well." (Jessica Stillman citing Carol Dweck and other researchers)
