Evolution punishes the selfish and impulsive aggressive behaviour, oh my!

Those of you who know me at all definitely can confirm that I am quite the Nerd. So when I am cruising my Flipboard at an undisclosed location I have been known to run across some pretty interesting articles, news stories and blog post.

It talks about game theory which is something that is captivating to me in itself. Although I am not sure that evolution punishes anything at all I do know that being selfish is never good and it in fact will catch up with you eventually from small to big things in life.

Get single category of parent category and display in WordPress post

I can’t remember anything and keep running into things like this so I wanted to post this. I found this on the following forum topic

//get categories for this post and only display if the category parent is Location
$location_cat=get_cat_ID('Location');
$categories=get_the_category();
foreach($categories as $category) {
if ($category->parent == $location_cat) {
echo 'name ) . '" ' . '>' . $category->name.'';
}
}
