Study: Americans choose media messages <br> that agree with their views
Post Date: 2020-11-03 11:48:17 by Gatlin
Study: Americans choose media messages that agree with their views A new study provides some of the strongest evidence to date that Americans prefer to read political articles that agree with the opinions they already hold. Researchers found that people spent 36 percent more time reading articles that agreed with their point of view than they did reading text that challenged their opinions. Even when they did read articles that countered their views, participants almost always balanced that with reading others that confirmed their opinions. The study is important because it is one of the first to record what people actually read and link these findings to their views on the same ...
The Myth of Fact Based Opinions
Post Date: 2020-11-02 02:52:54 by Gatlin
The Myth of Fact Based Opinions Some friends were having a discussion about something that both have strong, but different, opinions. They became clearly frustrated and the tone of the discussion turned south. That is what set me to thinking about all this, though this post is not about them at all. The same thing happens to me. Its just that it was on my mind while I was doing yard work that could have been a fine opportunity for some mindfulness practice. But I couldnt not think about this. It happens so often to all of us. Two presumably intelligent people who strongly hold different opinions about a subject. Both believing in the correctness of their view because their ...

NASCAR boss condemns the 'jackass' flying a Confederate flag over Talladega before Sunday's race
Post Date: 2020-06-21 23:12:56 by Gatlin
NASCAR boss condemns the 'jackass' flying a Confederate flag over Talladega before Sunday's race Steve O'Donnell has made clear on multiple occasions how he feels about the flag NASCAR is no longer allowing to be displayed at its events and properties. He sent yet another clear signal Sunday. O'Donnell, who is NASCAR's executive vice president and chief racing development officer, tweeted a message a few hours before the scheduled start time of Sunday's Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in response to a massive Confederate flag banner with the words "Defund NASCAR" being flown by a plane over the track. Some media members covering the NASCAR ...
Why you’re wearing a mask: The pagan ritual of transformation
Post Date: 2020-06-19 19:34:03 by Deckard
he pagan ritual of transformation Julian Huxley once wrote that the basic elements in cultural transmission and transformation are psychological. This is how we change. Since time immemorial, high rituals have been performed to transform reality.Ritual is a spiritual psycho-drama of consciousness; a deliberate action taken to facilitate change; changes to the whole of the environment people exist in, starting with the mental landscape of the people themselves; the place where our reality exists is first born in a dream.Artist Sharon Devlin once bluntly described the true purpose of ritual as being a:
method to alter ones mind. Its a sacred drama in which ...

This is the official video for "Fire On The Moon." The song originally appeared on GRAND FURY. The video was made several years later when the song was re-released as part of MEET THE BELLRAYS on Poptones. This is the cleanest version as it is from the PAL tape we had converted to digital. Do not try to adjust your screen - this is made this way on purpose.

Poster Comment:Amusing initial comment/observation alongs with follow up reaction/comments to this as well as throughout the thread. Thanks to YouTube, young generations are listening/watching older music and are witness to good tunes, (relative) innocence, and care-free times. Of further note: The same performer here (Tony Burrows) also performed 'My Baby Loves Loving' (1970), 'United We Stand' (1970), and 'Beach Baby' (1974) for four different phantom "groups."

10 Reasons to be Okay with Being Disliked If your number one goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness, and, therefore, your excellence. ~Unknown We all know at least one hardcore people-pleaser. You know the signs: She sleeps out in the rain and gets a cold so her friends dog can fit in the tent. He lends money to his friends, knowing they wont pay him back, then struggles to pay his own bills. If a friend calls her stupid, she whips up a batch of cookies and makes a card that reads, Sorry for disappointing you. And despite all their efforts to be liked by everyone, many people disrespect them. ...

What Makes This Song Great? (Boston, 'More Than A Feeling') -- Rick Beato [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2020-04-04 13:17:03 by Liberator
Poster Comment:Rick Beato's intricate breakdowns of songs, music, and techniques is pretty cool. Boston's first album (1976) in my opinion is a Top 10 of all time. Still nothing sounds like it, never has since. Boston was its own genre. Summer of '77. Second album (1978) was good as well. I remember the anticipation of this second Boston album, buying it immediately. That was pretty much the end of Boston (aside from the single, Amanda), on their third album ten years later in 1986.

During a time in which many Americans find themselves traveling across the country, loosening their belts by another notch, and perfecting their personal Black Friday wishlists, one Texas couple got the week off to an impressively selfless start that left one local waitress feeling like she was dreaming. Dennys waitress Adrianna Edwards walks seven miles to work and seven miles home again for every shift she works at the restaurant. I have bills to pay, she explained. Ive got to eat. Youve got to do what youve got to do. While enjoying breakfast on Tuesday morning in Galveston, Texas, a couple Edwards was serving had a chance to hear the story ...

November 21, 2019 By Tim Binnall Attendees at an aviation conference in China enjoyed a breathtaking display of hundreds of LED drones that took to the skies to form various 'ghost' aircraft. The amazing show reportedly unfolded last week in the city of Nanchang as part of their annual Flight Convention where cutting-edge aircraft are showcased. This year's festivities culminated with the dramatic and creative drone performance that left onlookers in awe. Initially resembling fireflies filling the night sky, a total of 800 LED drones powered up and launched into the air. The UAVs quickly came together to form fairly detailed and well-crafted depictions of various ...
ROLLING STONES "WAITING FOR A FRIEND" **POP-UP VIDEO**, 1981
Post Date: 2019-11-02 16:58:52 by Liberator
Poster Comment:East Side in lower Manhattan, 1981. Mood and vid is really chill. Keef and Mick meet and then just hanging out. Once upon a time before cell phones and rushing all over, we all used to do just that. (Lower Manhattan was pretty much this same vibe for a long time.) A well-toasted Keef and Mick wind up in a nearby bar where the rest of the band are..."waiting" for their friends. 'POP-UP Videos' were a cool thing created by VH-1. "Info-Bubbles" pop up during the tune on band/video trivia. Love the haunting, breezy sax. Back in the early 1980s, sax was used quite a bit. Till it wasn't, replaced by techno-synth. Very under-rated track by the ...
