    Reading time: 2 min — Viewed Scientific alert Can you sort your memories? What if you were asked to pick the five most important? What will they reveal about you? Made famous in 2015 by the animated movie On the contrary, the concept of “primary memory” recently took TikTok by storm. According to this theory, our personality and behaviors are determined by five basic memories from our childhood. False belief or established scientific fact? Well, this “central memory” thing is a complete myth, Science issues a warning. Although our memories contribute greatly to our psychological state, this view is incorrect. First, there is no limit to the capacity of our memory: long-preserved autobiographical memories are not limited to five. Failing to determine our personality, they occupy three main functions described by psychologists: they “Define Yourself”, that is, we know ourselves through our past experiences; They encourage social interaction with others when we tell them; Finally, our memory has a guiding function because it helps us draw lessons from the past to solve problems. It is important to emphasize that the...

    Widely broadcast on social networks, the map shows the photovoltaic installations on the old continent, where France is one of the European countries with the least facilities in this area. It is actually a collaborative mapping project that does not reflect the actual capacity established in France. Internet users bemoaning the low use of renewable energies in France have widely shared a diagram on social networks to illustrate their point. In this image, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy or the UK are covered in red areas – reflecting the density of installed photovoltaic panels – while other countries such as France or Portugal appear surprisingly empty.

    Elizabeth Holmes promoting Theranos pre-scandal Welcome back to the Nuts & Bolts guide to campaigns. Every week, with the help of members of campaigns around the country and people who’ve worked in field in management, communications, and finance, we cover topics about what can be taken from campaign experience big and small and injected into any campaign at any level. Most campaigns do not have professional staff and can’t afford them, which is especially true in red states where staff can be difficult to attract, leading most campaigns to use whoever is willing to step up to the plate and do the best they can in helping a Democratic campaign succeed.  This week, I want to talk about the “too good to be true” problem. Small campaigns can find themselves bombarded with offers and advertisements of services aimed at solving every issue your campaign could possibly face. So many of these services seem like a dream come true. Many come with catches, though: Service commitments. Fees. Purchase requirements. Percentages. Before you take the plunge, it might take a bit of legwork. Ask yourself: Does...
    It's a regular topic of discussion by the pundit class that America is a nation with a growing number of 'silos' or 'bubbles.' The argument is that people only read and watch certain things that cater to their interests and are ignorant of the views and lifestyles of others. Since the argument is typically lodged by left-leaning pundits and columnists, it creates the false impression that it is the American right that lives in a silo, unencumbered by the opinions of the left or the reporting of the New York Times. Of course, if you think about it for two seconds, you'll realize the opposite is true. While Fox News is huge and powerful and there is a whole universe of talk radio hosts and news media outlets, which espouse conservative and libertarian views, the truth is that America's media is dominated by left of center views. And those who work in the mainstream media ignore everything that challenges their perceptions. It's one reason so many people expressed shock at the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, or more recently,...
    The enigmatic, unsettling — and depraved — relationship between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein exerts a terrible fascination. But it is so clouded by their lies and obfuscation that even those closest to them remain unsure of the exact nature of their co-dependency. Epstein, found dead in his prison cell in 2019 while facing child sex-trafficking charges, was stupendously wealthy and undoubtedly handsome. He was also socially inept, awkward, taciturn and, of course, amoral. Maxwell, by contrast, was gregarious, Oxford-educated and formidably well-connected. Socially supremely confident, by turns charming and eccentric, she was also ruthlessly self-serving.  She became first his lover then his constant companion and lady of the house; his confidante and co-conspirator. The enigmatic, unsettling — and depraved — relationship between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein exerts a terrible fascination She offered him the entrée he craved into a world of high-society movers and shakers, of presidents and royalty. How else would the man from working-class Brooklyn ever have met Prince Andrew without her introduction? Epstein, in return, kept Maxwell in the lavish lifestyle of the super-rich, to which...
    Cher sues widow of Sonny Bono claiming she is withholding royalties For frustrated homebuyers, all-cash bids programs expand as workaround © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Asked about his vaccination status given New York City’s mandate and even his availability for Brooklyn Nets home games, Kyrie Irving repeatedly said, “Please respect my privacy.” That public silence – even as the Nets announced they’d hold him from road games and practice, too – led to an anonymously sourced report about Irving’s reasoning. Irving, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, is upset people are losing their jobs due to vaccine mandates. As one of Charania’s sources put it, “Kyrie wants to be a voice for the voiceless.” Irving on Instagram Live: Putting me as a hero or painting me as a villain sort of say or going against the vaccine mandates, that wasn’t my intent at all. Nobody is going to hijack my voice. Nobody is going to take the power away from me that I have for speaking on these...
    (CNN)Larry Elder, a radio talk show host and the top Republican candidate in California's recall election, disclosed in 2011 episodes of his radio show that he had twice been accused of sexual harassment and forcefully denied the allegations. In one instance, Elder recounted that, while he worked in private practice as an attorney in the 1980s, his employee accused him of hitting on her. Elder then defended himself by implying the woman was too unattractive for him to sexually harass."This woman who tried to break the contract, not to compete and then accused me of hitting on her," Elder said in one episode. "That's how, that's how she put it. If you had seen her, you would know that the picture would be a complete defense. I'm just saying."Elder later said the claim, made while he owned and operated a legal executive search firm in the 1980s, was false and said the woman backed down when he threatened to sue her for defamation.

    Princess Diana's former butler has thrown doubt on a letter she wrote saying she had 'no regrets' about her interview with Martin Bashir for Panorama in 1995.  Paul Burrell, 62, who lives in Cheshire with his family, said the letter, which was released as part of the Dyson Inquiry into the BBC, was 'odd,' in spite of being written in Diana's handwriting.  Speaking to Lorraine Kelly this morning, the royal aide turned commentator said the letter is the 'greatest asset' to Martin Bashir, after the revelation that he 'conned his way' into interviewing the late royal, two years before her death.  However, he revealed his theory that the letter could have been dicated to the late Princess because he knows that she did regret speaking publicly about her affair with James Hewitt.   Burrell's comment comes as both the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex condemned the actions of the BBC in airing Diana's interview, which was seen as a catalyst for her to officially divorce Prince Wales and leave her royal life behind.  'It is welcome that the BBC...
    Can it be all that surprising that, in these uncertain times, we are seeing a boom in people turning to spiritual practices for solace and reassurance? After almost 12 months expecting the unexpected, many of us are desperate to believe in the power of crystals, coloured light, vibrations and tea leaves — or to send our most heartfelt wishes to the moon. Moon wishing, in fact, is one of the fastest growing lockdown pastimes. The theory is simple: you write a wish on a piece of paper, read it aloud, visualise it happening, then ask the moon to make it come true. It’s a bit like making a New Year’s resolution, only instead of relying solely on your own will-power, you call on the powers of the universe — via the moon — to give you a bit of extra support. The moon is believed to act as a kind of ‘help desk’ which delivers wishes to the universe. Top astrologer Keiko (pictured) shows how to increase chance of wishes coming true, with key factors including timing and strategy...
    A bestselling author enlisted her husband to help her promote her latest book on TikTok, having him pretend to be the adulterous — and possibly murderous — main character in her new psychological thriller.

Now author Jeneva Rose and her husband Andy have had to clear up that the novel is purely fiction, and Andy neither cheated nor murdered his mistress.  Clever: An author enlisted her husband to help promote her latest book on TikTok, having him pretend to be the adulterous, and possibly murderous, character in her new thriller Uh-oh: In the viral video, her husband pretends to have cheated on his wife with a woman who has since turned up dead 'I'm guilty of a lot of things, but murder isn't one of them.

    Peace between the English and the Wampanoag fell apart within a generation. Joe Raedle / Getty Images Most children in the US do not learn the real history of Thanksgiving in school. The well-known story of Thanksgiving is an account of how the English pilgrims and Native Americans came together for a celebratory meal in Plymouth, Massachusetts. In reality, peace didn't last between the English settlers and their one-time Wampanoag allies, and the two became embroiled in a devastating war just a generation after the famous feast. Some people view the holiday as a reminder of the systemic racism and oppression Native Americans continue to experience in the US. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. While celebrations may look different this year in light of the ongoing pandemic, typically Thanksgiving is a time for family, parades, lots of delicious food, and, oftentimes, intense travel snarls. American schoolchildren are usually taught that the tradition dates back to the pilgrims, English religious dissenters who helped to establish the Plymouth Colony in present-day Massachusetts in 1620. As the...
    CNBC’s Shepard Smith cut off President Donald Trump’s White House briefing to deliver an utterly scathing rebuke. Just before the top of the 7 p.m. ET hour Thursday, Smith broke in while the president was still delivering frantic remarks from the White House podium in which he falsely claimed Democrats are stealing the election, and made a series of wild, untrue claims. “We’re interrupting this because what the President of the United States is saying, in large part, is absolutely untrue,” Smith said. “And we’re not going to allow it to keep going. Because it’s not true.” One by one, Smith knocked down Trump claims, including, to name just a few; his accusations that pollsters intentionally skewed their numbers to suppress turnout, his boasting that there was a “red wave,” and his nebulous talk of “corruption.” “None of that is true,” Smith said, after spending five minutes systematically dismantling Trump’s claims. “Not one word.” Later in the broadcast, during an interview with Larry Sabato — director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics — Smith talked about...
    Robert Guffey September 13, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) In the previous four installments of this series, I chronicled the attempts made by an old friend to convince me of an outlandish conspiracy theory being promoted by the group of rabid online Trump supporters known as QAnon. According to my friend, initiates of the Illuminati had teamed up with subterranean demons to torture, rape and eat kidnapped children in underground military bases ruled by the mortal enemies of Donald Trump. He insisted that when Trump is re-elected in November we can all look forward to the abolition of the income tax, the development of "free energy" for all and the public unveiling of thousands of grateful kidnapped children rescued by Trump's private army of "white hats" from cages squirrelled away in these Satanist-controlled underground dungeons.  One of the pieces of so-called "evidence" provided by my friend was a YouTube documentary called "Out of Shadows," which took the internet by storm in April. Perhaps the most impactful propaganda film of the past few years, "Out of Shadows" is a thinly-disguised QAnon recruitment...
    Hill Harper says his nine-year run enjoying Dr. Sheldon Hawkes on “CSI: New York” impressed his top-rated crime/investigation sequence on HLN. “For me, all of it got here out of that [role], of seeing folks have an actual curiosity in studying about forensics and every part that goes into an investigation,” Harper, 54, says of “How It Actually Occurred with Hill Harper,” now in its fifth season as HLN’s longest-running, most-watched unique sequence. “In a approach, it’s a mix of these issues and the truth that expertise is repeatedly evolving — and, as instances are examined, there’s at all times one thing new.” “How It Actually Occurred,” which premiered in 2016, blends archival footage, interviews and professional evaluation with Hill (who’s additionally a producer on the sequence) offering wraparound narration. This season’s matters embody the 1999 murders of three girls in Yosemite Nationwide Park (airing Sunday at 9 p.m.); the dying of Tom Petty; Siegfried & Roy; the homicide of Michael Jordan’s father, James Jordan; and the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. “A few of the instances we do about...
