first_imgOTTAWA – What impacts your vote more, your brain or your gut feeling?As Canadians prepare to cast their ballot in the federal election, it appears a person’s subconscious may play a bigger role in their decision than you might think.When you mark your ‘X’ on Oct. 21, you may like to think you’ve rationally decided which party or candidate is best, but hidden biases have a big impact.David Moscrop, a political scientist and author of the book Too Dumb for Democracy, explains studies have shown the pitch of a candidate’s voice, their facial structure, their gender, their race, and even their height can be more of an influence on your vote than their policies.“The pattern of your thinking is so deeply structured by biased racial and gender considerations,” he says. “We typically operate on cognitive auto-pilot.”Moscrop says everyone faces these hidden biases, and that’s why subconscious sexism and racism are big problems in politics.“We can’t ever assume that the decision we’re making is wholly rational,” he notes, adding those hidden factors can have a bigger impact than you might think on the overall result. “In a close race, those little biases can be decisive, they can be huge advantages.”So how do you kick these biases? Moscrop says it’s important to take a step back, always be aware, and challenge your choices to make sure you’re making a reasoned and informed decision.“Dig into what you think is an important issue. Give yourself some reasons — don’t simply look at someone and say, ‘well, I like the way that person makes me feel.’”last_img read more


The Cardinals lost to the Saints 31-7 on Sunday. The fifth-year safety went into surgery later that day, where doctors shaved the exposed bone and closed the wound, according to Somers’ tweet:“Drs shaved bone on Johnson’s finger and repaired. Lost about down to first knuckle— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) September 23, 2013.” Johnson pulled off his glove and the flesh was still in the glove exposing the bone down to the first knuckle. Apparently Johnson didn’t even realize the injury until he took his glove off on the sideline. Arizona Cardinals’ Rashad Johnson lost a piece of his left middle finger after making a routine tackle on New Orleans running back Darren Sproles on a punt return.Not even Johnson knows exactly what or when it happened, but Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers confirmed via Twitter that Johnson’s injury occurred sometime during his Sproles takedown:“Johnson’s injury happened on a punt return, tackling sproles. Not sure what happened, might have smashed in ground. #AZCardinals— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) September 23, 2013.” read more

They say he cannot properly help run San Diego’s largest school district and wrestle with a civil lawsuit, claiming sexual harassment and assault.Beiser maintains his innocence but hasn’t communicated with his constituents since the allegations came to light in March. The school he teaches at, Castle Park Middle in Chula Vista, says he’s been put on an indefinite leave of absence without pay.To actually remove Beiser parents would need to gather signatures from 15 percent of the estimated 586,000 registered voters in the school district. Parents have threatened to do just that but it’s not a quick fix.

first_imgA still of Joju George from the movie JosephJoju George is one of the most noted emerging stars in Mollywood and recently won the Kerala State Film Awards in the ‘Best Character Actor’ category for his performance in the movie ‘Joseph’ directed by M Padmakumar. The recent news about the actor is regarding a personal story he shared about an apparent near-death experience.A recent video uploaded to popular entertainment YouTube channel ‘Cine Life’ reveals that Joju once had a near-death experience (NDE) while undergoing a surgical procedure. As per Joju George, during the time of the surgery, he went unconscious and later saw his body lying on the operation table.The actor also added that he heard a mysterious voice and believes that it might be from a heavenly entity, most probably God or Death. Joju made it clear that he saw all his past events in life just like a cinema during the near-death experience.Even though Joju George debuted in the Malayalam film industry long back in 1995, he became a popular star among Mollywood movie lovers after the release of ‘Joseph’ in 2018. The film became a critical and commercial success, and people lauded Joju for immortalizing the character of a drunkard police officer with perfection on screen.The latest film of Joju to hit the theatres was ‘June’. The film which featured Rajisha Vijayan in the lead role received positive responses from critics, and it is now enjoying a decent run at the Mollywood box-office. Joju’s upcoming movie is ‘Virus’ which is being directed by Aashiq Abu. Even though spiritualists consider the experience faced by Joju an authentic proof of life after death, experts claim that these visual hallucinations are the result of a survival technique adopted by the human brain to combat limited supply of oxygen during life-threatening events.last_img read more
