Etymology: [L. humanus; akin to homo man: cf. F. humain. See Homage, and cf. Humane, Omber.]
Humans are primates of the family Hominidae, and the only extant species of the genus Homo. Humans are distinguished from other animals by a relatively larger brain with a particularly well developed neocortex, prefrontal cortex and temporal lobes; enabling high levels of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, problem solving, culture through social learning, and other important mental capabilities which, combined with bipedal locomotion that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed far greater use of tools than any other species. Humans are the only extant species known to build fires and cook their food, as well as the only known species to clothe themselves and create and use numerous other technologies and arts. The scientific study of humans is the discipline of anthropology. Humans are uniquely adept at utilizing systems of symbolic communication such as language and art for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization. Humans create complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families and kinship networks to states. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of human society. Humans are noted for their desire to understand and influence their environment, seeking to explain and manipulate phenomena through science, philosophy, mythology, and religion.

I think human nature is to overreact, personally. It's sort of short-sighted and you just see the feeling that you have at the moment, right now, what is it, best three out of five now ? We went from best four out of seven -- now, it's best three out of five.
My attorney said that one day someone will listen to me, no one looks at the crime as a traumatic event, they don't look at the individual who was a part of it. The clemency process is about the individual and what happened versus the legal side of the incident. It is a much more human experience.
As South and North Korea have promoted this 'mood for peace,' the defectors and North Korean human rights activist groups feel excluded.
What is happening now is not new. Racism and unjust phobic fear of Black males and disregard of Black females is very real. When we look at the facts, it's hard to deny there's a real problem in our society, if we take this time to see that this is a human issue, and speak out together, we can greatly decrease fear and create change.
The disaster is what the earthquake does to human structures. We change those human structures, we can eliminate the disaster.
