How to Survive a Lightning Strike: An Illustrated Guide The best way to survive a lightning strike is to avoid being outdoors in the first place. Use the 30/30 Rule: If, after seeing lightning, you can’t count to 30 before hearing thunder, get inside a building or car. Don’t go outside until 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder. If you’re caught outdoors and can’t take cover during a lightning storm, seek shelter in a low area under a dense growth of small trees (don’t stand too close to them, though). Avoid tall, isolated objects like tall trees and flagpoles, since lightning often (but not always) tends to strike the tallest object in an area. Don't Muzzle Librarians and Archivists An Open Letter to The Honourable James Moore Dear Minister Moore: We are deeply concerned and surprised by the directives in Library and Archives Canada’s new “Code of Conduct: Values and Ethics”.

The Stroop Effect: Measuring Our Unconscious by Lisa Wade, PhD, Mar 20, 2012, at 12:34 pm How does a scientist measure your unconscious mind? It turns out, it can be done. With a technique called the Implicit Association Test, psychologists can measure your unconscious beliefs about anything: whether, deep down, you associate Black men with weapons, Asians with foreigners, fat people with laziness, men with science, and more.

Despite our best attempts to "know thyself," the truth is that we often know astonishingly little about our own minds, and even less about the way others think. As Charles Dickens once put it, “A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.” The 6 Scientific Principles Behind Influence and Persuasion At the core of much of our marketing activity is one simple desire: to influence and persuade our audience. How does it actually work, though? Are we just throwing things out into the universe and hoping that someone, somewhere will find our content influential and persuasive? UK-based virtual phone service Everreach took a deep dive into the science behind these oft-used but little understood terms, based on the teachings of Dr. Robert Cialdini, author of Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.

88 (number) Eighty-Eight is a refactorable number, a primitive semiperfect number and an untouchable number. It is also an hexadecagonal number. Since it is possible to find sequences of 88 consecutive integers such that each inner member shares a factor with either the first or the last member, 88 is an Erdős–Woods number. In base 10, it is a palindromic number and a repdigit. Number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture, since the word 8 sounds similar to the word Fā (发, which implies 发财, or wealth, in Mandarin or Cantonese). The number 8 is considered to be the luckiest number in Chinese culture, and prices in Chinese supermarkets often contain many 8s.

After introducing the case, the judge asked: ”Is any reason why you could not objectively apply the law?” My hand shot up. I said: I have to admit, I’m kind of disgusted that state resources are being used to protect the corporate interests of Chanel and Gucci.
