i saw somewhere a couple of years ago a research pointing that older parents have kids with higher iq.

i guess it can be for several reasons like

  • smart people tend to be interested in other things than dating
  • people like that are often not socially adapted and have troubles establishing relationships for a long time

but the most important, probably is that older people tend to choose reasonable partners, and reasonable partners probably have higher iq’s (which does not mean that unreasonable people should necessarily have low iq).

Armen T. Marsoobian offers us the unique lens of the Dildilian family of Armenian photographers in provincial Anatolia. Around the turn of the twentieth century, the Dildilians worked to memorialize portraits of fragmenting families and to document everyday scenes in provincial cities such as Sivas, Samsun, and Merzifon. Marsoobian, himself a descendant of the Dildilians, has woven together the family’s remarkable photographic archive along with their memoirs and oral histories, to describe how through ingenuity and professional connections, the family and with them much of their art survived the genocide in 1915-16.

When Mariam Avanesian and her family fled to Yerevan from Azerbaijan 25 years ago this month, they thought they were lucky; they had escaped physical danger, and left behind an apartment rather than “a grave” in the Azerbaijani capital, Baku. But moving to Armenia didn’t mean the end of uncertainty for Avanesian’s family members, and tens of thousands of others.
