AND WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT:
Although the participants didn't personally endorse stereotypes, it's clear that they affected the participants' unconscious thinking. Stereotypes can be like poison in the water we all swim in, and the brain, like a sponge, absorbs them, Freeman said, even when we don't want it to.
The scientists put participants to work at a computer rapidly sorting those faces into categories: male or female, black, white or Asian, happy or angry. What they didn't tell the participants was that they were tracking the subtle movements of their mouse — looking at where instinct pushed them to go in the first hundred milliseconds after an image appeared, before they had time to process the face and then sort it accordingly.
SHADES OF "BACK TO THE FUTRE" BUNKY:
PARIS — A Frenchman has flown more than two kilometres on a hoverboard in an apparent new world record.
The Guinness World Records reported on its website that 37-year-old Franky Zapata travelled 2,252 metres off the French Atlantic coastal town of Sausset-les-Pins on Saturday at a height of 50 metres above the surface of the water.
It said a Guinness World Records official was on hand for the flight and determined that it beat the previous record of 275.9 metres by Canadian Catalin Alexandru Duru last year.
Zapata achieved the new flight on a jet-powered craft developed by his company Zapata Racing. He also held an earlier Guinness record for doing 26 backflips with a water jet pack in a single minute.
Franky Zapata crushes hoverboard world record with his flyboard Air between Carry-le-Rouet and Sausset-les-Pins. This is the first press video released by Zapata Racing.
