Dans le cadre des TraAM 2012, nous avons réalisé et expérimenté une séquence de veille autour de l’orientation avec un outil de curation : Pearltrees. The end of capitalism has begun. The red flags and marching songs of Syriza during the Greek crisis, plus the expectation that the banks would be nationalised, revived briefly a 20th-century dream: the forced destruction of the market from above.

For much of the 20th century this was how the left conceived the first stage of an economy beyond capitalism.

Semen has controlling power over female genes and behaviour

In many animals, seminal fluid alters both the bodies and sometimes even the behaviour of females. Human semen, too, triggers changes in the uterus, and might have wider effects on women, aimed at just one goal. “It’s all about maximising the chances of the male reproducing,” says Sarah Robertson of the University of Adelaide in Australia. The effects are most striking in fruit flies: seminal fluid can make the females eat more, lay more eggs and be less receptive to other males. Now a team led by Tracey Chapman at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK, has found that male fruit flies selectively alter the chemical make-up of their seminal fluid. Some of their findings were presented at the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution conference in Vienna, Austria, last week, including their discovery that one of these proteins is a “master regulator” of genes.

16 Things Unemotional Women Will Understand

Seriously.” Those strange moments where we’re sure we are some sort of alien species barely resembling the other well adjusted humans around us because everything we do suddenly seems off kilter. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but the point is that I think we all feel different and alone at some point in our lives (the reality being that we are neither different nor alone, of course). Growing up, riddled with the female stereotypes of prior generations, I seriously thought I was emotionally broken. I felt like I was lacking some key sensitivity gland or brain wave because I had a hell of a hard time relating to the other girls/women around me. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

" What Each Myers-Briggs Type Does In A Rut (The Rise Of The Inferior Function) Each Myers-Briggs personality type reacts to prolonged stress in a slightly different form. While there may be a simple answer for helping each type through a bad day, the solution to helping each type snap out of a rut is slightly more complicated. We tend to fall into ruts when our first three cognitive functions have failed to aid us in a particular situation and we are forced to rely on our inferior function to get by.* Because we are not used to relying primarily on our inferior function, doing so often facilitates the development of an unhealthy mindset (or a ‘rut’) that we have trouble snapping out of. The Female Alpha. When most people hear the phrase ‘female alpha’ they think of the most attractive, powerful or domineering woman they know. However, female alphas are not so easily recognizable.
