  • Are You a Left-Brain or Right-Brain Thinker? This Image Can Tell You

    The Blaze ^ | 11 August, 2013 | Mike Opelka
    Roger Sperry won the Nobel Prize in 1981 for his work on what is now commonly known as right brain-left brain thinking. Sperry theorized that some very specific activities were controlled by one side of the human brain or the other — for example, the right side controlled creative tasks, while the left side was where logic, language and reasoning lived. People were fascinated by the idea, and in the three decades since, bookstores, television, the Internet and college psychology classes everywhere have been filled with endless discussions of the differences between right-brain, left-brain, and whole-brain thinkers. (Ironically, Sperry’s...

    Thomas R. Dooley Jr., 28, stole a .22 caliber handgun and used it to rob a business. Police responded and stopped Dooley’s vehicle, but Dooley then sped away leading authorities on a high’speed chase. During the chase, Dooley fired his weapon at a pursuing officer, attempted to ram a Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office vehicle, and caused another vehicle to crash. After turning down a dead–end road, Dooley lost control of his truck and his vehicle ran into a tree. Then, he fled on foot. The handgun was found in his truck with all nine rounds fired. Dooley entered a guilty...

    SAN FRANCISCO – A federal appeals court says Anna Nicole Smith's estate will receive none of the more than $300 million that she claimed her late billionaire husband had promised her. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is the latest stop in the 15-year legal battle over the $1.6 billion estate that oil magnate J. Howard Marshall left after his 1995 death at age 90. Smith had married Marshall the previous year and argued that he meant to leave her more than $300 million. A Texas state court ruled against Smith and in favor of Marshall's son, who argued...

    President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, and we are having a difficult time figuring out why. The prize committee cited its decision on this: “For his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” Really? We missed this. Obama seemed surprised by this announcement and said winning the prize was a “call to action.” The nominations for the prize took place in February, which was only a couple months after Obama’s inspirational and change-promising “Yes We Can” campaign. In fact, he is the first U.S. president to be awarded the prize in his first term. Obama...

    Once again, the remarkable run of neurological disease in prominent political figures has come to the forefront. The potentially fatal consequences of a ruptured brain aneurysm were recently underscored by the untimely and wholly unexpected death of Congresswomen Stephanie Tubbs Jones. Fortunately, for the newly-named Democratic vice-presidential nominee, his prognosis is excellent but, once again, because of the gravity and importance of the position he is aspiring to obtain, special circumstances supervene.

Date, time if you want. The winner wins... our undying respect here on FR.Have fun.

    FORT BLISS, Texas (Army News Service, June 5, 2006) – The first-ever Afghan soldier to attend the Sergeants Major Academy has graduated as a member of SMA Class 56, at Fort Bliss, Texas, May 19. Sgt. Maj. Roshan Safi was selected to attend the U.S. SMA on recommendations from his commanders and U.S. Army mentors in Afghanistan because of his consistent leadership potential as a career-soldier, which began with the post-Taliban controlled Afghan military. “We have officer and enlisted training in Afghanistan,” says Safi. “But in the future we want to establish more non commissioned officer enlisted and officer schools.”...

    Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York. This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about...

    A man is dining in a fancy restaurant and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He has been checking her out since he sat down, but lacks the nerve to start a conversation. Suddenly she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it out of the air, and hands it back. "Oh my, I am so sorry," the woman says as she pops her eye back in place. "Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you," she says. They enjoy a...

    Ed Morrisey Jr. has his opinion about rumors President Bush received preferential treatment when he was allowed into the Texas Air National Guard in the late 1960s. The Blount Countian also has firsthand knowledge. The 75-year-old Jackson Hills resident is a retired colonel with Texas Air National Guard. He swore Lt. George W. Bush into the service in May 1968. On Thursday, Morrisey said the argument that Bush got off easy by being in the National Guard doesn't take into consideration the context of the 1960s. ``Bush and the others were flying several flights day or night over the Gulf...

    So much for low-fat, chocolate doughnuts have 18 grams of fat A health food executive is serving 15 months in a US federal prison for wilfully mislabelling doughnuts as low-fat. Robert Ligon, a 68-year-old food executive is scheduled to begin his prison term on Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported. The three-year scheme spanned America and involved selling mislabelled doughnuts, cinnamon rolls and cookies to diet centres. Labels on Ligon’s doughnuts said they contained three grams of fat and 135 calories. But officials at the Food and Drug Administration said one of the doughnuts, glazed with chocolate, contained 18 grams...

While firefighters focus on containing the blazes rather than the detective work necessary to prosecute arsonists, many are wondering about a possible connection with terrorism. In August, Australian authorities launched an investigation into reports al-Qaida planned...

    GERMANY’S long, relentlessly scientific search for its national sense of humour may at last produce dividends this weekend when hundreds of psychotherapists and teachers meet to discuss the nature of laughter. The International Humour Congress in Stuttgart is the latest symptom of a comic revolution in Germany. Sacha Baron Cohen’s Ali G now appears on German television — with the help of remarkably coy subtitles — and Mr Bean and Monty Python have developed strong followings. Last month the British Embassy hosted an Anglo-German comedy summit, with makers of television series including Absolutely Fabulous exchanging ideas and punchlines. The two...
