Subjects were then given a probe stimulus in the form of a digit from The subject then answered as quickly as possible whether the probe was in the previous set of digits or not. The size of the initial set of digits determined the reaction time of the subject. The idea is that as the size of the set of digits increases the number of processes that need to be completed before a decision can be made increases as well. So if the subject has 4 items in short-term memory STM , then after encoding the information from the probe stimulus the subject needs to compare the probe to each of the 4 items in memory and then make a decision. If there were only 2 items in the initial set of digits, then only 2 processes would be needed. The data from this study found that for each additional item added to the set of digits, about 38 milliseconds were added to the response time of the subject. This supported the idea that a subject did a serial exhaustive search through memory rather than a serial self-terminating search. Mental rotation Shepard and Metzler presented a pair of three-dimensional shapes that were identical or mirror-image versions of one another.

Paul Berry After building the product for Huffington Post, and owning the product and engineering groups at AOL after we were acquired, it was clear to me there was a huge gap between what the current CMS offering gave the world and what the world needed. Five years later we are at scale, moving the needle and doing to WordPress what Airbnb did to Craigslist. Social and Centralized WordPress, Drupal, and the custom CMS solutions of the world are all independent, non-connected instances that each need to be updated individually.

There are over 87 million instances of WordPress alone in the world, and each security upgrade, feature update, and every other single thing has to be updated for each site individually. By contrast, RebelMouse is a social, centralized platform built to keep up with the speed of the tech giants.

The overall rates vary widely depending on how the pollsters frame the question, but the ratio is pretty consistent. The data on perpetrators is less clear. If you prefer anecdotes to data, you can sift through this Reddit thread with comments. I had a chief harass me daily which resulted in administrative actions when I tried resisting her abuse. Eight months later I was suicidal and that WO was signing my counselling and probation with her husband. She then started thrusting into my backside.

It was pretty uncomfortable and I felt kinda vulnerable. In the wake of all these sexual harassment stories, I looked back on this moment and considered for the first time that that was actual sexual harassment. But then is it odd that so few of the recent high-profile victims of sexual harassment have been men, and so few of the high-profile perpetrators women? The viral Facebook message that started MeToo — at least the one I saw — urged women to come forward with their stories of sexual harassment, and men to come forward with stories of times they perpetrated sexual harassment.

From up to , National provided Airways companies with HRO receivers for use at airports and for airway navigation uses. The RCD provided specific airways features like squelch, relay controlled speaker selection and audio bandpass filters and single audio amplifier output sections designed for either Z ohm lines or Z ohm speakers that had internal output transformers. No S-meters, no crystal filters and most importantly, no external power supply.

Mental chronometry is the use of response time in perceptual-motor tasks to infer the content, duration, and temporal sequencing of cognitive operations. Mental chronometry is one of the core paradigms of experimental and cognitive psychology, and has found application in various disciplines including cognitive psychophysiology, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral neuroscience to elucidate.

This is a virtual museum in cyberspace. Many are too delicate to handle. The restored and enlarged digital images presented here are often much easier to see than the original! Due to the ravages of age and technical factors, each image has typically required extensive restoration and modification using digital tools to eliminate defects and achieve what we believe is the most esthetic and historically accurate rendition of each picture. Skillfully performing such magical transformations by digital image restoration requires considerable subjective judgment, artistry, originality , and creativity, as well as technology.

Clarke, the famous science fiction writer once remarked that “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

The phrase basket-type hilts refers to a large group of hilts which provide a degree of protection to the hand and wrist. Basket-hilted swords have featured prominently among British military edged weapons over the past five centuries, from the Wars of the Roses in the mid fifteenth century to the period immediately after the second Boer War of the early twentieth century.

In setting out to give a full account of the hilt type, and the many variants within it, the first necessity has been to provide an appropriate terminology to employ in cataloguing and describing individual examples. The book, well illustrated with black and white illustrations, falls into several parts, dealing successively with general aspects of various hilt types and discussion of typological methodology, the three major groups of basket-hilted swords, the diverse group of incomplete basket hilts, ‘mortuary’ hilts, and hilts closely related to ‘mortuary’ hilts.

I hope this helps.

Contact Author I recently purchased 10 pounds of vintage buttons. The seller said they were old but I didn’t realize just how old they were. There were many yellow and brown toned buttons that I am pretty sure used to be white. There were buttons ripped off of old clothes, and the small ripped pieces of fabric definitely looked to be from decades past.

There were a few that had cracked apart. It looked like they somehow disintegrated and and they had broken off in these weird clumps. There were some that were glass, cloth covered, metal and lots and lots of them made from plastic. Needless to say, I have been on a mission to identify and learn about the materials these buttons are made of and I’ve learned lots of great stuff!

I figured it was a perfect time to do a vintage button hub. I have always thought buttons were darling and I LOVE using them in craft projects but I really wanted to be for sure that I didn’t ruin any buttons that may be of value plus I wanted to know the proper way to clean them. I am sharing with you in this guide, everything I’ve learned recently while researching antique buttons.

Recording done, it was now time to break out the trowels and start digging. As the depth of a burial can never be predicted, this process is carried out slowly and with great care and one of the edges of the grave cut proved to be very clear – the others were somewhat less co-operative.

Most ballads tell a popular story of tragic romance or personal catastrophe in short stanzas with a refrain, usually in the form of a dialogue with action. Repetition over an extended period of time tends to produce variants.

Beginning in 16th-century Britain, broadside ballads about contemporary issues and events were printed on a single sheet of paper and sold in the streets to be sung to well-known popular tunes. In the late 18th century, a new literary form developed in which long narrative poem s were written in deliberate imitation of earlier popular ballads example: Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
