SExpand If you're trying to attract men in San Francisco who like to visit coffee shops, you may want to skip filling in your "about me" section, and spend as much time as possible picking out your very best profile picture. According to consumer research company AnswerLab, men spend 65 percent more time looking at photos than women, while women spend 50 percent more time than men actually reading through profiles. These are the results of a small study conducted over the course of a single day at a coffee shop in San Francisco. 18 women and 21 men — who self-identified as being interested in dating a member of the opposite sex — were asked to peruse dating profiles from Match.com and eHarmony.com. How much of your online dating profile do people actually read?
Why I Quit Cooking: Women in the Kitchen May 10, 2010, 1:37 pm 15 Comments Photograph via Reuther Library There's been a lot of talk recently about women and professional cooking. New York chef Amanda Cohen posted a rant concerning female chefs, the Beard Awards, and the women's access to funding in the restaurant world, and EMD's Helen Rosner responded at her main gig on Grub Street by saying what many essayists on this topic have been trying to tip-toe around: the restaurant world is sexist. I worked in the restaurant industry for six years, largely in the kitchen. Why I Quit Cooking: Women in the Kitchen

According to Fortune, CEOs are getting talkative these days—about politics, about high unemployment, about same-sex marriage. Of course, shareholders don’t hire them to spout off and cause trouble. And shareholders come first. Or is it that they came first? Fortune suggests that thoughts about maximizing shareholder value could be changing. “Perhaps some CEOs have begun to question the prioritization of shareholder value over the company’s defining values,” the magazine avers. Maximize This!

A Quantitative Model for ci(r) For each scientist i, we find that ci(r) can be approximated by a scaling regime for small r values, followed by a truncated scaling regime for large r values. Recently a novel distribution, the discrete generalized beta distribution (DGBD) has been proposed as a model for rank profiles in the social and natural sciences that exhibit such truncated scaling behavior20, 21.

Book review of Ervin Laszlo In his search of yet another "theory of everything", the Hungarian philosopher Ervin Laszlo takes David Bohm's "in-formation" (an active form of information that shapes the informing agent) as the fundamental constituent of the universe expressed through a ubiquitous field that originates from the quantum vacuum. His aim is to prove that everything is interconnected in the universe thanks to that "Akashic" field, and he claims that this would explain a number of puzzles of modern Physics as well as parapsychological phenomena (such as telepathy, that he takes for granted). He sees analogies in the ways that particle are connected by quantum effects and in the ways that living organisms are connected by ecological laws (Laszlo even believes that our individual "consciousnesses" are connected in a superconsciousness that evokes both Carl Jung's collective unconscious and Teilhard de Chardin's noosphere).

A visitor is seen looking at a Chinese artist Liu Xia photo during an exhibition in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, in 2011. The photos were brought out of China under the noses of the authorities by French academic, writer and economist Guy Sorman, a friend of the artist and her Nobel Peace prize-winning husband Liu Xiaobo.
Warren Buffett has a lot that his assistant Debbie Bosanek does not, including a figurative arsenal to fight for lower taxes. After ABC interviewer Bianna Golodryga cited claims by Republicans that the tax code debate is a form of class warfare, Buffett admitted that, while he wouldn't use that term, the tax code is inherently "a struggle." The problem, however, is that people like his assistant lack the artillery to compete. "If this is a war, my side has had the nuclear bomb," Buffett told ABC News.

In what may be one of the most 'aww'-inducing stories of the day, two sick dogs from Corpus Christi, Texas, made their way to a human hospital and waited patiently in the lobby, KIII TV reports. According to the station, hospital staff treated the "emaciated" pups, and a doctor carried them to the station's van, which then transported them to the Gulf Coast Humane Society.

the Eye in Hand / el Ojo en la Mano The Choctaws believed that the Sun watched them with its great blazing Eye, and so long as the Eye was on them they were all right, but if the Eye was not on them they were doomed. p 126 Perhaps the Mississippian Hand-and-Eye design represents a crystal held in a man's Hand, symbolizing the ability to see into the future, although this interpretation must remain conjectural until other evidence presents itself.73 p 169 note 73: James Howard has suggested that the Hand and Eye design had something of the meaning the Hand design had for the Plains Indians in more recent times. Namely, that it was associated with warfare, and that it might have meant, as among the Omahas and Dakotas, that the warrior wearing it had been struck or wounded by the enemy (Southeastern Ceremonial Complex, 29-34).
