“With less than a month until Election Day, voters are being inundated with political ads from their mail boxes to their Facebook feed; in some cases, generating a sense of anger.” WBAY interviewed Prof. Ryan Martin (Psychology, Human Development), an anger researcher. “There’s a lot of things about social media that exacerbate anger,” said Martin. “The fact that you’re often socially distanced from the person who you’re angry at; that means you can’t see their facial expression when you make comments, you can’t see how they are responding to what you’re saying, it makes it easier to say hurtful things. I think that’s a big piece of it.”

“But the truth is, spiders don’t just live in warm places. Worldwide, there are over 40,000 species of spiders and they’re found living on every continent of the world except Antarctica.
