    Most people change their tone at least a little when talking to a cat or another animal. Now, research has coined the term “cat-directed speech” for the equivalent of baby talk with a cat. A new study analyzed how well cats can distinguish between cat-directed speech and normal speech toward other human adults. Source: ThePrint/YouTube Previous studies have found that humans speaking to babies in infant-directed speech or ‘baby talk’ can help develop language skills and the bond between parent and child. A new study published in the journal Animal Cognition sought to find out if there are similar effects of talking to cats through cat-directed speech. The researchers took 19 indoor cats to participate in the study, all of which were pets of veterinary resident students. To avoid stressing out the cats in an unfamiliar environment, researchers conducted the experiments in the cat’s homes. Researchers recorded humans speaking to their pets in both cat-directed speech and adult-directed speech. They also recorded 16 strangers calling the cat’s name. They then played back the speeches to the cat and...
    ABC "Dancing With the Stars" ballroom Former “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe was crowned the winner of “Dancing With the Stars” season 29. During the season, she was partnered with Artem Chigvintsev. Bristowe has previously been open about her relationship with Chigvintsev not always being a positive experience during her time on the show. When she was a guest on Melissa Joan Hart’s podcast, “What Women Binge,” she shared that the professional dancer was “cut-throat” and “angry.” “I think he was going through stuff in his own personal life and I was, like, so giddy to be in there, and he was going through so much on the outside world,” Bristowe shared at the time. Now, she says that she and Chigvintsev have not kept in touch.Bristowe Compared the Partnership to a Business Relationship View this post on Instagram A post shared by Kaitlyn Bristowe (@kaitlynbristowe) In an interview with Us Weekly, Bristowe shared that she and Chigvintsev don’t talk very often now that the show is over. “You know, what’s funny is I actually feel like Artem and...
    Men are bad at communicating. At least that’s what we’re told. The image of the typical man is one sitting in a pub, discussing the football results or nursing a pint while staring into the middle distance.  Men are berated for not talking about and sharing their feelings enough, with more and more women refusing to accept the traditional masculine methods of handling things. This, according to a psychologist, has led to a rise in the number of lonely, single men.  In an article last week, U.S. psychologist Greg Matos argued that men are lonelier than ever as they struggle to meet the higher dating standards of modern women who want ‘men who are emotionally available, good communicators and share similar values’.  It’s important to state that when we talk about the communication styles of ‘men’ and ‘women’, these are, of course, generalisations. There are some men who are very open about their feelings, and some women who are not. But, as a rule, men tend to hold back in comparison to the opposite sex.  In an article last week,...
    In the animal world, numerous species form same-sex relationships. They cooperate, defend territories, and bring up young ones. While these relationships may not be permanent, animals resort to them to enhance the chances of their survival or that of their offspring. As we just celebrated the pride community in June, let’s talk about queer animals too! But First, Why Are Certain Animals Queer? The key to survival for any species is to procreate and continue their bloodline. Some animals, however, resort to relationships that yield more gratification to sustain themselves. Some may form same-sex bonds out of love, some may have an ulterior motive to do so. There are reasons why animals engage in same-sex companionships: Securing Their Survival Those living in large social groups use their queer relationship to establish dominance over resources. Commonly observed in primate species, same-sex engagements help them out-compete others and gain control over space as well as food. Protect The Young Two same-sex individuals may come together to care for either of their offspring, like in the case of flamingos. Also known as...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more Buying ethically and sustainably matters. Adults are usually able to talk about the serious issues surrounding slave labor, sweatshops, and how mass consumerism is destroying the environment. However, while these are all important topics, they may be a little heavy to throw on children.  How can we talk to young kids about making purchases that respect the people sewing, building, or manufacturing them? It’s completely possible, so let’s break it down.  Simplify Things Throwing big words around will only confuse kids. Ethical consumerism is a relatively simple concept, so it can be broken down to be digestible for your children.  Here are a few examples of what to say to children to explain why shopping for the environment and the people in it is important:  “Someone has worked hard to make everything we buy, so we should respect the things that we have.” “Some things we buy make a lot of bad pollution, especially for the people who make them, so you need to make good choices about what...
    Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar called on Thursday for the Biden administration to do more to secure the border, saying a “staged visit is not enough.” “This administration, with all due respect, talks about how we’re handling the unaccompanied kids, but that’s one thing,” Cuellar said in an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “I’m glad that we’re doing a much better job. But what about the rest of the people? What about the individual adults who are coming in? We have to talk about that. “We always talk about working with Central America, Guatemala, and Mexico to do the … dirty things we don’t want to do, or the uncomfortable things we don’t want to do, and that is deport people. We want them to deport people before they come here,” he added. “But we’ve got to enforce the law, and part of the laws that we have is deport the people that don’t have a right to be here in the United States. It’s just plain and simple.” Cuellar, whose Texas district borders Mexico, has been critical of President Joe Biden’s...
    Vulnerable Democrats do not want to talk about Donald Trump anymore, as they seek reelection in 2022 to keep House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in power. “The former president is now a private citizen, and it appears our justice system is handling whatever potential misdeeds he may or may not have committed,” said Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), who will be in a tough reelection bid due to the State of Florida’s redistricting measures. “Trump is a Republican problem and a Republican cancer that they need to cut out of their party,” she added. “But that’s their problem.” Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA) said she is “focused on substantive issues. Not just retribution for a failed, corrupt president.” She continued, “I’ve never been obsessed with going after former President Trump.” “Even when President Trump was president, people got tired of hearing about him,” said Sen. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM), who won his seat in 2018. “Trump puts his foot in his mouth more than anybody else. Let him do the talking. People are going to see him for what he is,” Luján said....
    CNN commentators Ana Navarro and Joe Kennedy got into it on Monday over whether the media is giving Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R- GA) too much attention and oxygen. Greene recently made an on-its-face ridiculous comparison between mask mandates and Nazi Germany. Greene doubled down, while a smattering of Republican colleagues have called her out. Navarro went on a tear against Greene and asked how House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy could “possibly stay silent” in the face of this nonsense. “If you stand with Israel, you have got to denounce — get up and find your backbone, among other parts — and denounce and condemn these horrific, unacceptable statements by this heap of steaming trash that has been elected to Congress from Georgia,” she said. Kennedy, a former U.S. congressman, agreed that Greene’s comments are “disgusting” and said she “demeans democracy,” but went on to say, “We also can reject them and not give her the oxygen that continues to feed this machine.” Navarro said she disagrees and argued, “I don’t think we have the option of not giving it oxygen and...
    The NextGen Climate Survey has found 83% of Gen Z youth are concerned about the health of our planet, according to data from Blue Shield of California. This data provides a concerning outlook on the effects of climate change on Gen Z. Among 1,200 respondents aged 14-24, the majority of respondents shared that their environment affects their physical and mental health. More than half of the youth polled shared they are “very concerned” about the planet running out of resources. The top three environmental issues at the top of mind are air quality, water pollution, and plastic pollution. “Climate change is very real and there are a lot of environmental disasters happening,” said 22-year-old Justin Valenzuela, co-president of the Ohlone College Sustainability Club and co-founder of Renegade Feedings in the Bay Area. “Most importantly, I know a lot of marginalized communities around the world are facing different ends of climate change, even though they aren’t the contributors. Providing sustainable health care to all, especially marginalized communities that are affected by climate change, seems like the right step.” One in four...

    Japan’s ruling party has proposed to invite women to attend key meetings - so long as they do not speak – days after its Olympics chief was forced to resign for his sexist comments. Leaders of the Liberal Democratic Party decided to allow five female lawmakers to observe its all-male board meetings during which the women are forbidden from talking. The new proposal comes after a sexism row was sparked by Tokyo Olympics chief, Yoshiro Mori, who claimed that women prolonged meetings because they spoke too much.

    Ana Navarro said Tuesday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s plan to speak with freshman Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was not enough. Navarro made an unscheduled appearance on ABC’s “The View” and argued that Greene should at the very least be stripped of her appointment to the House Education Committee. WATCH: Cohost Whoopi Goldberg began the segment by noting that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had spoken out against the more radical elements within the Republican Party — and most assumed that he was likely referring to Greene. Navarro responded then, saying that a large number of Republicans had left the party in the days that followed the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. (RELATED: ‘White Slavery’: Ana Navarro Says Kevin McCarthy Visiting Trump And ‘Kissing The Ring’ Looked Like Slave And Master) “I think what Mitch McConnell did was frankly fill in the vacuum left by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in the House,” Navarro continued. “That visit by McCarthy to Donald Trump, really he looked like a seal waiting for a trainer to throw him a...

Nets Last week, during the Nets’ media week, Irving left a statement with a team spokesperson revealing that he wouldn’t be speaking with the media and would, instead, “let my work on and off the court speak for itself.” Of course, that’s a violation of the league’s media protocols and it resulted in a fine of $25,000 that the league hit him with on Thursdsay. He certainly wasn’t going to let that go unchecked. On Friday, Irving issued a response via his Instagram. He started off with a Malcolm X quote and said he was for peace, love and greatness.

    Nets point guard Kyrie Irving issued a Friday statement in response to the NBA’s $25,000 fine after he failed to comply with the league’s media rule. Irving opened his statement — which came via Instagram — with a quote attributed to Malcolm X. He then went on to say he hopes the fine money is used to help “marginalized communities in need” before ending the statement with, “I do not talk to Pawns. My attention is worth more.” MORE: LeBron James ‘hurt’ by Irving’s comments on Kevin Durant’s podcast The NBA on Thursday fined Irving — in Year 2 of a four-year, $141 million deal — after he refused numerous requests to speak with reporters since the beginning of training camp on Dec. 1.

    Coronavirus — Barcelona City Council, governed by Ada Colau, has published a new report on the effects of the low coronavirus crisis «The gender perspective». It includes the measures that the council has applied to alleviate the effects of inequality, but only 25% have something to do with women. The Barcelona City Council maintains that the arrival of the pandemic in Spain has caused more harm to women than to men. “The impact of this crisis in the medium and long term will depend on how the feminist perspective is incorporated into the responses that are given,” says the municipal report in its introduction. Therefore, the council has decided to carry out an analysis that includes the measures that have been taken to prevent the coronavirus from becoming a greater problem for them than for them. The Colau government team considers it necessary to apply specific feminist policies in each area of ​​life and, therefore, they frequently carry out this type of analysis, detailing the reasons why women should be considered as a vulnerable group. .
