    AN optical illusion spotted by a scientist at a cafe in the 1970s is still baffling scientists to this day. The aptly named Cafe Wall Illusion tricks your brain into seeing curved lines when all the lines are actually parallel. The horizontal lines are actually parallel, and not at all slanted.Look at the distance between them at the start and end of each row if you dont believe it.Wonderful version of the cafe wall illusion, by Victoria Skye. pic.twitter.com/tYQYWEawU7— Gavin Buckingham (@DrGBuckingham) May 29, 2020 The optical illusion was first called the Kindergarten illusion in 1898 but grew in popularity decades later when a scientist spotted it on a cafe wall in Bristol, England. Despite the illusion being known for a long time, scientists still don't quite understand it. New World Encyclopedia explained: "The café wall illusion is not well understood." Adding: "It is unclear whether the effect is due to an inhibitory mechanism or if there is a kind of computational filter acting on input from cells operating at different spatial frequencies".

MDARD, along with our state, local and federal partners, has been working tirelessly to inform and educate growers and the public about this highly invasive insect.” Adult spotted lanterfly’s bright wing coloration is hidden when wings are closed.

    Christina Bobb, former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer who was at his Florida mansion on Monday as the FBI searched it, spoke with Real America’s Voice on Tuesday and said that the warrant the FBI showed her was partly sealed. “When I arrived and kind of announced myself as the legal representation for President Trump. I asked to see a copy of the warrant,” Bobb said, recounting the events prior to the search. “Initially they refused and said, You know, ‘we don’t have to show it to you.’ And there was a little bit of an exchange about whether it was appropriate to withhold the warrant when you’re searching the residence of the former president, who’s likely to be the Republican nominee in the next election, though they conceded and let me see it, they did not give a give me a copy of it right away, but they did let me see it,” Boob, a former host on the far-right One America News Network, continued. “It was very, I would say, thin.

    Braves pitcher Spencer Strider isn’t hitting the panic button after the Mets won the series against Atlanta, pointing to October as the true test. Coming out of the MLB trade deadline, the Braves had a huge opportunity to close in on the Mets in the chase for the NL East lead. After five games and four losses, they’re significantly further behind than they planned. For pitcher Spencer Strider, whose 5-2 loss on Sunday concluded the series, the games just played don’t matter all that much compared to what’s to come. Braves pitcher Spencer Strider“[There were] a lot of weird hits. [The Mets] seem to be having a lot of luck right now offensively. That’s great. It’s August. (We’ll) see what things are like in October,” Strider said, per Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. New York certainly seemed to have luck on their sides at times in the series. Still. he temptation may be to downplay the regular season games that don’t go their way, but Strider and company do need get a few games back on the Mets when...

However, she was recently forced to shut it down after she openly spoke about having sex with her husband while she was breastfeeding her son.

    Minneapolis (CNN Business)When the latest jobs report comes out on Friday, it very well could show the smallest number of positions added in the past 18 months. The US economy is expected to have gained around 250,000 jobs last month, according to Refinitiv. While that's far from the 456,000 average monthly gains so far this year, it's not a sign that the sky is falling, economists say. In fact, it's exactly what the Federal Reserve wants to see.A more sustainable pace of employment growth is part of the Fed's game plan as the central bank looks to extinguish high inflation without completely upending the labor market or triggering a recession. Last month, payroll gains came in hot, surpassing expectations with 372,000 jobs added during June -- giving the Fed a green light to act aggressively with little fear of damaging the labor market. "If we got a number that was anything like the June number, the Fed would be rightfully worried, and I think we all would," said Dean Baker, senior economist and co-founder of the Center for Economic and...
    TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly.'  The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking.  Many people began posting videos of themselves with and without the filter, as the song 1, 2, 3 by Sofia Reyes played in the background. TikTok user @eunicetjoaa was one of the first to participate in the trend, and her video gained more than 30 million views and inspired others to try it too.  TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly' The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking Many people began posting videos of themselves with and...

    First Lady Jill Biden defended her husband and his administration's performance in an interview published on Tuesday, saying she wished voters could see just how hard he was working on the problems facing the nation. President Joe Biden's personal standing has been battered by crisis after crisis, from the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan to inflation and high gas prices.  This week it fell to 38 percent, according to Gallup, marking a new low. Jill Biden leapt to his defense, saying he was in power during a 'tough time in history' before reeling off his achievements. 'Sometimes it feels like we're pushing this boulder up the hill, but progress is being made,' she said in an interview with Real Simple magazine. 'Joe's been in office for, what, 18 months now?

    DEAR ABBY: I recently made some unflattering comments about my daughter-in-law to my son. They were recorded on their Ring doorbell. Now she’s angry with me and my son, and I’m not sure I will ever see the grandchildren again. When I emailed her an apology, she said she didn’t know if she could ever forgive me. She will see my husband, but I am not allowed over there if she will be around. Any words of wisdom as to what to do? We have always helped them out with the children and sometimes financially. Should my husband tell her if I’m not welcome, then he feels the same way? I know he feels caught in the middle between me and the whole situation.

    Trey Mancini wanted to relax. Honestly, he did. Orioles manager Brandon Hyde could tell the first baseman was pressing at the plate, so he gave Baltimore’s longest-tenured player the night off Monday to unwind and take in a 5-1 win against the Tampa Bay Rays from the dugout, enjoying a view at Camden Yards that Mancini might not have for much longer as trade speculation swirls. “Me being classic me,” Mancini said, “by the third inning I’m going to the [batting] cage.” With this being the final series at Camden Yards ahead of Tuesday’s Major League Baseball trade deadline, Mancini is bracing for the possibility that this will be his final time inside the dugout along the first base side of Camden Yards. He wants to treat it as if this is his final week, in a way, because he doesn’t want to waste this time in front of the home crowd that has cheered him on since 2016 by racking his brain for a way out of a slump that, entering Wednesday, has him hitless in his last 25...
    AN IMAGE of a muddy mountain bike has left the internet baffled - can you figure out what's really going on? A bizarre optical illusion has gone viral on the popular forum Reddit. 1So can you figure out what's really going on in this photo?Credit: Reddit The snap in question shows a red mountain bike covered in mud and stood on a very dirty ground. But it's not to much the bike or the background that's left people's minds confused. It's the fact that the mountain bicycle appears to be missing the front tire. Covered head to toe in mud, you cannot see the usually black rubber tire. To make it even more challenging, the colour of the mud blends in perfectly with the background, leaving Reddit users confused. However, whilst some were fooled, eagle-eyed social media fans eventually figured out what was going on in the photo.
