Cited in Digital Journal, "The two reports were prepared by the Costs of War Project at Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Catherine Lutz, Costs of War co-director and a Brown Professor who authored the projects' report on deaths said: "These reports provide a reminder that even if fewer soldiers are dying and the U.S. is spending a little less on the immediate costs of war today, the financial impact is still as bad as, or worse than, it was 10 years ago."
Cited in The Washington Examiner, "Brown University's Costs of War Project has unveiled its annual report on the budgetary costs and obligations the United States has incurred from the global war on terror. The report estimates that the federal government has spent $5.4 trillion thus far on our post-9/11 conflicts."

Emily Oster in Mashable, "There's this fetishization around this type of brain science where just the idea that we can see inside people's brains and what's happening in there is awesome, and we must be learning something really important...But whether it's screen time that causes those differences in the brain, or other features of the family, is really not something this study can disentangle."
