What Shamu Taught Me About a Happy Marriage
(From the NY Times Magazine Modern Love column.)

"Least Reinforcing Syndrome (L. R. S.).
When a dolphin does something wrong, the trainer doesn't respond in any way. He stands still for a few beats, careful not to look at the dolphin, and then returns to work. The idea is that any response, positive or negative, fuels a behavior. If a behavior provokes no response, it typically dies away."
