Are Smart People Getting Smarter?

-How can popular culture and modern society, filled with its video games and mind-staggering media, actually help our brains when many have claimed that it distracts us too much?

-What if the reason why people are getting smarter is because our brains are actually continuing to evolve, and our human species is actually just getting smarter as a whole?

-Why is the Flynn effect disappearing in some countries if it is supposed that our intelligence increases as we have more nutrition, access to education, etc.?
