Does how we view the world depend on our genes? A new study suggests that it does. Science Daily reports that a study published in Psychological Science shows that a gene variant can be responsible for why certain individuals perceive emotional events more intensely than other, especially when it comes to negative events.

According to the article, the gene in question was previously known to play a role in real-time perception. However, the study reveals that participants with the gene variant were more likely to experience negative words than others, even though all participants were shown neutral, positive, and negative words.

“This is the first study to find that this genetic variation can significantly affect how people see and experience the world,” Prof. Rebecca Todd of UBC’s Dept. of Psychology, told Science Daily. She added, “The findings suggest people experience emotional aspects of the world partly through gene-coloured glasses — and that biological variations at the genetic level can play a significant role in individual differences in perception.”

Mobile Ads: The Newest Trend – By Ted Dhanik

October 11, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

The PC has become a common device in the homes of most Americans. In addition, internet access is also a common feature of the modern home. However, what has become even more prolific is the availability of cell phones. And while there is great deal of difference between the home PC and a mobile device, they are both a part of the online experience. And while most businesses promote online, a great deal of them have yet to embrace marketing on mobile phones. Mobile advertising has become just as crucial as other forms of web marketing. In fact, it can even be argued that mobile advertising may even be more important than other forms of internet marketing due to the fact mobile devices are more ubiqutious in today’s world.

Walk into any home, business, or public spot, and people will be examining their mobile devices. A lull in a conversation or a moment of boredom will bring about mobile phone activity. With folks checking their phones multiple times in a daily basis, this becomes the perfect ground for cultivating new customers. The world of marketing for mobile users can bring about an incredible amount of results if taken advantage of. And a modern business would be foolish not to use this very potent tool to promote their goods and services.

Any good online marketing campaign will take into account the mobile market. And if a company’s current marketing design has neglected to include this mobile potential, then it should be re-examined. Mobile marketing has the potential to become the most powerful aspect of display advertising.

History Points to the Constant Danger of Coastal Development

According to environmental historian John Gillis’ new book The Human Shore: Seacoasts in History, the modern concept of the coastline as a place for recreation and building expensive homes has created a disconnect between people and the true nature of ocean shores. In a profile published by The Chronicle of Higher Education, Gillis points out that the idea of the beach being a place for relaxation didn’t start until the 19th century. Before then, the coast was a place for industry relating to the ocean and a place that was rugged and dangerous.

Events like Superstorm Sandy serve as stark reminders of the potential dangers of living near the shore and the continually evolving nature of coastlines. Gillis suggests that the pattern of human development near coastlines suggests that major storms and their resulting damage are not isolated incidents but should be the eventually expectation.
