Brain learns to recognize familiar faces regardless of where they are in the visual field

A new study finds that recognition of faces varies by where they appear in the visual field and this variability is reduced by learning familiar faces through social interactions. The findings suggest that repeated social interactions may tune populations of visual neurons in the face processing network to enable consistent and rapid recognition of familiar faces.

The NYC ‘I Voted’ Sticker: You’re Wearing It. They Designed It.

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Just like the cartoon stickers awarded to very brave boys and girls who make it through their dentist appointments, those who exercise their constitutional rights get a souvenir from their experience: another sticker!

“Everything is so heavy,” Marie Dagata, who co-designed the sticker all New Yorkers receive after voting, told The Daily Beast. “(The stickers) are a lightness, a form of self-expression for whatever your political stance is.”

On a day that exists to be partisan, the sticker communicates an unadulterated patriotism and old-school levity not usually seen in this vitriolic political era. “I’ve seen the sticker on people of all ages, on pets—I saw a nice one where people were kissing, and they both had my ‘I Voted’ sticker on their cheeks,” Dagata said. “It’s sweet.”

Bill Maher on Being Targeted by Pro-Trump Mail Bomber: ‘They’re So Stupid, They Don’t Know Science’

HBO

This past week, we learned that in addition to shipping pipe bombs to the Obamas, the Clintons, Joe Biden, Rep. Maxine Waters, CNN, George Soros, Robert De Niro and a host of others, pro-Trump mail-bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc was also looking to target comedian Bill Maher, whose management firm was evacuated after it received a suspicious package addressed to him (it was thankfully a false alarm).

And on Friday night’s Real Time, the political satirist addressed the controversy as only he could.

Everybody has to vote,” announced Maher to cheers from his in-studio audience, before joking, “We have an election. Democrats, if you’re voting by mail, make sure there’s enough stamps on your thing, and Republicans, the same goes for your bombs.”

Millennials Could Make a Big Difference in the Midterm Elections. But Will They Vote?

One point appears to be clear: Millennials will be looking for game-changing U.S. political candidates as Election Day draws closer.

Fifty-five percent of millennials report they will definitely or probably vote in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new NBC News/GenForward survey. The elections occur on Nov. 6. Some 19% of millennials indicate that they will definitely or probably not vote. Another 25% are unclear if they will vote or not.

A majority of millennials have regularly indicated they plan to vote for Democrats in the 2018 congressional elections within the last year. Roughly a quarter plan to vote for Republicans. Another quarter doesn’t plan to vote for either party, uncertain what they will do.

Survey findings showed that “the candidate quality that matters most to millennials’ vote in the upcoming midterms is someone who can bring about needed change, signifying that young people are still on the hunt for someone they feel can make a difference.”

Forty-two percent of millennials surveyed reported their midterm vote will be in opposition to President Donald Trump. Just 14% say their vote in this year’s midterm election will back Trump, while 24% contend Trump won’t affect their vote at all.

The survey of 1,910 adults ages 18-34 was conducted nationally from July 26 through Aug. 13 this year.

Intriguingly, millennials are not overly thrilled with either party. In the past year, the survey showed millennials perspective of the Democratic Party was split between favorable and unfavorable. During the same time, about 6 in 10 millennials have asserted unfavorable impressions of the Republican Party, with fewer than 3 in 10 disclosing favorable views.

The survey also suggested that “millennials are disillusioned about the midterm elections.”

On the numbers front, millennials could be a force in the election if a great number vote. Millennials are expected to soon top baby boomers in size demographically. Totaling 71 million in 2016, millennials in America are closing in on baby boomers (74 million) in population and expected to become the nation’s largest living adult generation in 2019, according to the Pew Research Center.

And while millennials might be more likely to vote for Democrats, a big uncertainty is how many of them will actually vote. Observers conclude that millennials over the years have not displayed high turnouts for midterm elections.

Blac Chyna Gets Emotional In Beverly Hills While On An Outing With Friends: ‘They Can Say Whatever They Want About Me’

Blac Chyna was recently spotted on a night out with her pals in Beverly Hills last Friday. She seemed a bit overemotional, as Daily Mail puts it, while she was leaving a steakhouse with her pals.

She was with a female friend, and she told her the following: ‘I want to get my message out. Go out and vote. It’s midterms.’

She also continued and said ‘I’m doing good and my kids are doing very well.’

Daily Mail reports that Chyna went on: ‘I keep quiet, I keep silent. Do you want to know why? Look up your religion. Get more informed. They say whatever they want about me. I look at it and laugh. You know why? Because it’s all false.’

Just recently Chyna discussed other subjects as well such as new music.

‘I’ve been working on some music. I never been the type of person to really coast. I just want to test all my boundaries to see if I can kind of do it,’ she told DailyMailTV.

Backgrid

‘My music is kind of fire. I have a little bit of singing, a little bit of rapping and I have a little love song.’

She also stated a little while ago that she would definitely consider getting back together with Rob Kardashian, but her baby daddy did not address the issue, at least not in public.

Speaking of Rob, Chyna’s mom, Tokyo Toni begged him via social media to let her see Dream Kardashian in a really emotional video.

The T Rex’s tiny baby arms might have been way more useful than they seem

t rex arms

Running into a Tyrannosaurus rex in the wild would have been a truly frightening thing for just about any animal that roamed the earth between 65 million and 80 million years ago, and for an obvious reason. The mighty meat-eater was huge in size and had a mouth built to turn bones into powder. If it snagged you with its jaws you were probably going to have a bad time, but nobody was afraid of its puny little arms… or were they?

As Live Science reports, a new study presented at a recent meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology took a close look at how T. rex’s arms would have functioned, and it makes some bold predictions.

Nickelback are immune to your mean tweets, in fact, they relish them

TwitterFacebook

Nickelback are pretty good sports when it comes to being one of the most ridiculed bands on the planet. I guess you have to be.

In the latest edition of Jimmy Kimmel’s way harsh segment “Mean Tweets,” music stars like Pink, Miley Cyrus, The Strokes, Schoolboy Q, Imagine Dragons, Tyga, Dua Lipa, and Gwen Stefani read out awful things people have written about them on Twitter.

Heck, Korn even takes a deep burn with a comparative reference to Nickelback.

More Men Are Wearing Stilettos—if They Can Find Their Size

Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

Shaobo Han put on his first pair of heels at age 11. The pair wasn’t Han’s, exactly—he’d stolen them from his mother, to practice “prancing around the house when no one was around.” Han thought that boys weren’t supposed to wear heels, so he made sure to play with them in private.

“I have other male-presenting friends who have the same memory of trying on their mother’s clothes,” Han told The Daily Beast. “It’s fascinating that a collective memory exists. Even though nobody taught us how to wear heels, we all tried on our own.”

Years later, Han went to Forever21 to buy his first real pair of heels for $ 40. “I was lucky that my shoe size is a men’s eight, which is a women’s 10,” said Han. “Other people aren’t as fortunate. If they have larger feet than mine, it’s almost impossible to find something that fits.”
