    Getty Jamaal Williams gestures for a first down against the Browns in 2021. The Detroit Lions have one of the NFL’s best team motivators in Jamaal Williams, and the running back clearly isn’t lacking for self confidence, either. Williams is one of the best quotes in the league and a great guy for a locker room. Perhaps the reason this is revolves around his own abilities and confidence. Heading into another year, Williams left no doubt where he sees himself. Speaking to reporters after practice on Tuesday, August 2, Williams was asked about his personal expectations for a new season. As he said, there’s nothing that he feels as if he can’t do.

    THIS brain-frazzling optical illusion is enough to put your head into a spin. The purple-and-yellow image looks as though it's both three-dimensional and moving but is in fact stationary and flat. 1All is not as it seems with this mind-boggling optical illusionCredit: Getty - Contributor It's an example of illusory motion, also known as motion illusion, in which a static image appears to be moving. They work by tricking the brain into seeing motion using contrasting colours, object shapes and position. Because our brain reads a change in light as motion, it looks as though the lines are moving. In reality, they are entirely static. A similar trick is used to create the illusion of depth. Read more about illusionsSILENCE IS GOLDEN What you see in this X-rated illusion could mean you have a filthy mind Interestingly, the trick relies on the viewer scanning their eyes across the image for the full effect.

    Empathic curiosity doesn’t necessarily mean putting yourself in someone else’s shoes. The practice is about expressing curiosity about the thoughts and feelings of other people. This also includes curiosity about the reason they have those thoughts and feelings. Source: World Economic Forum/Youtube It’s no surprise that health care professionals have been through so much in the last few years amid the pandemic. A study at the end of 2021 on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health found that 74 percent of health care professionals reported feeling depressed, and 75 percent said they suffered from anxiety. Fifteen percent even reported that they had thoughts of self-harm or suicide.

    THE idea of giving up custody of their kids would be unthinkable for most mothers, but for these three women it was one of the best decisions they made. Speaking to Topic in the recent documentary The Last Taboo, three mums have revealed what lead them to moving away from their kids - and the judgement they’ve received for doing so. 5Maria moved out of the family home when she divorced her husband after her daughter's deathCredit: Topic 5Maria says she struggled to maintain the role of an "ideal mother"Credit: Topic Here we share their extraordinary stories… Maria Maria had been desperate to be the perfect wife and mother, but had not been prepared for the unimaginable.

    On Feb. 12, 2001, scientists at the Human Genome Project unveiled a bold undertaking nearly 20 years in the making: a first draft of the sequence of the human genome. This early translation—and its more complete version two years later—gave researchers the ability to finally read human DNA. Since then, the blueprint of around 20,000 cataloged genes has informed and transformed healthcare, making it possible for us to predict, diagnose, and treat genetic diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis more precisely than ever before. However, there's been one final hurdle to overcome: decoding the entire human genome. The “finished” sequence published in 2003 only amounted to about 90 of the genome that seemed most vital at the time. Segments of that deciphered DNA (about 2 percent) encoded instructions for making proteins. But there was another 8 percent that appeared to be “junk”—repetitive sequences that seemed inconsequential—and went untranslated. “We said it was done with a little asterisk way back in 2003,” Dr. David Valle, a geneticist at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who was an advisor to the...
    Their poor memories mean fish are often seen as the dunces of the animal kingdom. But a new study suggests that view may be a little misguided because stingrays and zebra mbuna have been found to add and subtract just like humans.  Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany said their findings highlight that the numerical abilities of fish are on par with those of other vertebrate and invertebrate species.  A new study found that stingrays and zebra mbuna were able to add and subtract. Fish were shown cards with either blue or yellow shapes (pictured), and then presented with two gates containing cards with different numbers of shapes — one of which was the correct answer Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany found that Zebra mbuna – a species of cichlid fish – and stingrays (pictured) can add and subtract one from the numbers one to five HOW INTELLIGENT ARE STINGRAYS?  Stingrays and manta rays have both garnered a reputation for their high levels of intelligence. There are two scales of how intelligence is roughly estimated in...
    Many of us get stage fright at the thought of public speaking in front of a huge audience or doing something mortifying at a party in front of work colleagues, but it turns out that some people fear rather more mundane situations.  People from around the world took to anonymous sharing app Whisper to admit the ordinary things they feel too embarrassed to do in public, from one who hates to blow their nose, to a Californian woman who avoids kissing her boyfriend in view of others.  One person admitted they feel anxious when eating around people they don't know, while a woman, who lives in Georgia, revealed she gets embarrassed when buying sanitary towels, even at the age of 29. Another said they're grateful for delivery apps because a simple act like grocery shopping fills them with fear because they're overweight and think they'll be judged by other shoppers.   People from around the world took to Whisper to reveal the 'normal things' they are too embarrassed to do in public - including a Californian woman, who doesn't like kissing her boyfriend...
    Jim Clyburn, the South Carolina Congressman, isn’t a good public speaker. Even so, he speaks for me. He should speak for you, too. This article was authored by John Stoehr. Last week, during an interview with The Hill, the House majority whip put Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s fascist turn in the context of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Europe’s infant republic: It’s high time for Americans to take a hard look at our country, where we are and how we fit into the rest of the world. When you see Russia, you see an arch-opponent of capitalism, an opponent of democracy, someone [Vladimir Putin] who’s installed himself as president now for over 20 years, see us buying into his rhetoric. The people who are doing it are not doing a good service to this country. He continued: There is a reason that the founders put into our oath to protect against all enemies, foreign and domestic. There are some domestic enemies of democracy, of capitalism, who would love to see an autocracy put in place. That’s why you’re...
    Johann Hari, longtime journalist and author of the book "Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention and How To Think Deeply Again" Johann Hari joined "Tucker Carlson Today" to discuss America’s dwindling attention span, the importance of being able to think in-depth, and how to retrain the mind to focus. The native of England explained to Carlson how he grew up in a working-class family and what propelled him into his writing career. "So I was very lucky I was from a working-class family," he said. "My dad's a bus driver. My mother worked in shelters for survivors of domestic violence. And I was really lucky I got to go to Cambridge University.

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — When India Walton beat Buffalo’s four-term mayor in a Democratic primary last June, New York’s second largest city looked like it was about to get a leader like no other in its history. She’d be its first female mayor and the first to identify as a democratic socialist. After becoming a mother at age 14, she grew up to be a nurse and strived through a lifetime of financial hardship that continued through the campaign, when her car was impounded for unpaid parking tickets. But rather than pack up his City Hall office of 16 years, Mayor Byron Brown has stayed in the race in pursuit of his own superlatives: He’s trying to become the first person to win a major race as a write-in candidate in New York state, and — if he gets a fifth term — Buffalo’s longest-serving mayor. “Either way it’s going to be historic,” Nazareth College political analyst Timothy Kneeland said of the race, which is yet another marquee battle between the center and left of the Democratic Party.

    Beauty fans have shared striking before-and-after photos revealing how they sharpened their jawlines and reduced puffiness without the use of surgery or fillers.  The secret to their chiselled looks is being kneaded, prodded and poked by skincare professionals at FaceGym, a 'gym studio for the face' with branches in the US and the UK.  Treatments focus around stimulating the 40 muscles that make up the 'scaffolding' of the face, using techniques including manipulating the inside of the cheek, massaging the jaw with a closed fist and wearing a mask charged with an electrical current.

    (CNN)A cattle rancher in North Dakota has culled half his herd, since there's little grass left to graze. Thousands of trees in Tucson, Arizona, are dying and an entire generation of salmon in the Klamath River could be wiped out. Richard M. FrankThe western US, which is in the throes of a "megadrought" that has been plaguing the region since 2000, has entered an era of water crisis that is unprecedented in recorded American history. Due to climate change, that drought has been getting progressively worse. Warmer winters lead to decreased snowpack and hotter summers cause drier conditions, creating a vicious cycle of heat and drought.Climate scientists warn that longer and more intense droughts are not an aberration -- they're the "new normal." To make matters worse, the laws and policies determining water rights are now becoming obsolete due to climate change. Given this reality, it's imperative that the American West modify its water policies without delay and implement more efficient methods of conserving and managing water. The alarming effects of the West's megadrought are multifaceted. Without sufficient rain and...

    Dear Amy: “Sophie” is a very close friend. I love her dearly. We have had a couple of difficult conflicts over the years but have always recovered. Amy Dickinson  I vowed that I would never hire Sophie as my real estate agent because of how it would affect our friendship, but I didn’t discuss this with her. Recently, I put my home on the market, and against my better judgment, I asked Sophie to be my agent. Within 10 days, I realized that working with her was a bad decision. She did give me some advice about staging my home and also sent me listings for places to rent. We had not yet signed the contract when I told her that I loved her dearly and that she might even be the best real estate agent for me, but that the stress would not be healthy for our friendship.

    The best way to combat the incestuous and corrupt relationships between news media and political figures is to “write bestselling books exposing all of these linkages,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said on Friday, referring to Breitbart News Editor in Chief Alex Marlow’s Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption. Cotton spoke with Marlow on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. Marlow highlighted two examples of conflicts of interest presented by marriages between news media persons and current and prospective Biden administration officials. “It is anticipated that Biden is going to nominate a guy named Tom Nides to be the ambassador to Israel, and he’s someone who is part of the Biden Institute at Delaware, and I think is a Morgan Stanley guy — Democrat establishment all the way — but what’s more interesting to me is that he’s married to the vice president of newsgathering at CNN, named Virginia Moseley.” He added, “The type of thing I’ve been documenting in my book Breaking the News is how much of the media establishment is literally in bed with the Biden administration....
    When I went to the dentist last week, I didn’t plan to bring up racism and entrenched systemic abuse of Black people in the U.S. Dodging conflict was a survival skill I learned in childhood, but I pushed past my aversion and took a risk. It was a tiny risk in a situation that wasn’t dire, but the results illustrate that facing difficult issues instead of skimming over the surface can help us break old patterns.   Conversations during dental work usually are one-sided and superficial—they talk and I hum in reply without moving my open mouth. This time, though, the dental hygienist and I dug into a topic that’s especially important for white people. It was prompted by something mundane: the dentist’s soft rock background music. There we were, listening to The Big Bopper singing “Chantilly Lace.” These song lyrics prompted the event. Chantilly lace and a pretty face And a ponytail hangin' down A wiggle in her walk and a giggle in her talk Make the world go 'round Ain't nothing in the world like a big-eyed girl To make...

    HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. (CBS) — A quadriplegic in Highland Park has a request for his neighbors. He wants them to swap parking spots so that he has enough space for his wheelchair-accessible van in the garage.

For Chris Block, getting into the van is a small victory unto itself. “I don’t have any feeling from the armpits down,” Block said. “I’m working kind of best can to overcome my physical limitations and whatnot.” On the day we met Block, no one was parked in the space next to his – the spot where his ramp extends out from his parking spot. But that space is linked to another condo unit, so when his neighbor parks in the garage, he cannot. “I would like to just be able to access grocery stores, restaurants – whatever I’d like – without having to knock...
    One week into shelter-in-place last year, Jeremy Bailenson was talking to a BBC reporter and had an epiphany. “Why are we Zooming? There’s no need for us to be on Zoom,” he thought. A phone call would have sufficed. This kernel of realization became an op-ed article that Bailenson penned in the Wall Street Journal titled, “Why Zoom Meetings Can Exhaust Us.” Bailenson, a professor of communications and founder of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab at Stanford University, wanted to dig deeper. So he wrote an academic paper, published Tuesday in Technology, Mind, and Behavior, that boils down four underlying causes of videoconferencing fatigue. First, the format subjects us to prolonged eye contact at close range. In the close quarters of an elevator, Bailenson points out in his paper, people avoid making eye contact. During in-person meetings, they might look at the speaker, but they’re also looking down to take notes or glance elsewhere. “On Zoom, you’re getting eye contact 100% of the time, regardless of whether you’re speaking,” Bailenson said in an interview. Our computer...

    Adobe Dear Oracle, I'm in my early 30s, and my parents have recently separated. They have decided to keep their finances joined, which is driving them, and me, fucking bonkers. They argue about bills, who's responsible for what, and all the things they are entitled to. I'm pretty worried that one or both of them might do something shortsighted (dumb/selfish) that could adversely affect them both financially, which is the last thing I want.  My question is: How involved should I be? I'm in a position where I could take control of most of their finances and ensure that they both can live fairly comfortable lives. Still, I'm worried about the very real possibility that their anger and frustration with each other will just refocus on me, and I'll be the bad guy. I don't want to be in the position of parenting my parents, but part of me feels like that might be the best option. What should I do? —Swell intentions Cards: Fool reversed, Nine of Pentacles, Tower, High Priestess.  Swell, this is a problem big enough that three...
    In an exclusive interview with Mediaite, CNN legal analyst Elie Honig warned that President Donald Trump’s waning days in office will be a chaotic “pardon-palooza” that could even include a controversial self-pardon. Honig was a guest on this week’s edition of The Interview podcast, where host and Mediaite editorial honcho Aidan McLaughlin asked the former federal prosecutor what to expect from what will likely be several months of a lame-duck presidency — if current trends hold. “Oh, it’s going to be chaos,” Honig said, and added that “it’ll just be pardon palooza.” Mr. Honig noted that “There seems to be a little bit of an impression out there that the president loses some of his powers once he’s… lost the election and is a lame duck. Not at all. He doesn’t lose a single legal or constitutional power. He still has the pardon power.” Honig listed some pardons he would expect to see, telling McLaughlin “I’m sure Michael Flynn, I’m sure he’s going to pardon Michael, Paul Manafort, and George Papadopoulos, even though the latter two have already served...

    MARCELO BIELSA is ready to take Leeds back to the top of the charts — by doing it his  way. That is the view of the club’s former title-winning boss Howard Wilkinson, who reckons Bielsa is the Frank Sinatra of the Premier League. 3A giant mural of Marcelo Bielsa has been painted in LeedsCredit: Rex Features 3The Argie tactician masterminded the Whites' promotion bidCredit: PA:Press Association And although the 65-year-old Argentine has not got the voice of Ol’ Blue Eyes, Bielsa does possess the kind of star attraction that sets him apart from the chasing pack. Wilkinson, who was the boss in 1992 when Leeds last lifted the top-flight title, told SunSport: “I really admire Bielsa because he dares to be different. “That applies to what he does and how he is as a person. He’s got great belief in what he does and he’s able to get people around him to believe it too. “I suppose if he was a singer, he would be Frank Sinatra — he does it his way but funnily enough, I don’t think he’ll...

    Photo by Bill CottmanAt the George Floyd Memorial, June 2020Bill Cottman knew in his teens that he wanted to be an artist. But as a young Black man in a segregated high school in Salisbury, Maryland, seven miles south of the Mason-Dixon Line, he didn’t get a lot of encouragement. “That’s not a statement about our teachers and our guidance people,” he said earlier this week. “They were doing everything they could to put us on paths that would allow us to support ourselves and our families. Art was like, ‘Are you crazy?’” Cottman went to Howard University and studied engineering. In 1967, he graduated, married Beverly Delores Walton and moved to Minnesota for a job. He spent the next several years working as an engineer, most at Honeywell, where his career went “extremely well. I mean, extremely well.” He also took photography classes and workshops, studying with Frederick Sommer, Charles Harbutt and Gary Winogrand. Bill and Beverly had talked about retiring at 55. They spent a month in Ghana, returned home and retired at 53. They moved from west...
