마술과 같은 착시현상 -에임스룸

Ames Room Video Illusion


같은 선상에 있는 왼쪽의 어른이 오른쪽의 어린이 보다 훨씬 작다?

마술가들도 이와같은 트릭을 보여주기도 하였지만 원리를 알고 보면 간단한 눈 속임.


사람들의 고정관념을 이용한 착시현상.


사람 크기가 차이가 나는 것이 아니다.

실은 두 사람이 있는 방이 정육각형이 아니고, 두 사람이 서 있는 거리가 다른 것이다.

The National Building Museum, which hosted a BIG Maze in its Great Hall last year, is now the site of an indoor beach. Their newest exhibition is aptly titled The BEACH and features an immersive installation by experimental design firm Snarkitecture. The 10,000-square-foot space is filled with an “ocean” of one million translucent polyethylene balls and a carpeted deck that’s complete with lounge chairs.

Although the installation presents a beach-like setting, it uses creative liberties to interpret the idea of an oceanside environment. The entire piece is clad in white and its 50-foot wide “shoreline” includes neutral-colored umbrellas and seating, while the two shipping containers’ worth of balls engulf swimmers in a ghostly quagmire. The entire piece culminates in an opposite-facing mirrored wall which creates the illusion of a seemingly infinite sea.

Visitors are welcome to “swim” in the ocean or dangle their feet off the pier. The BEACH also encourages people to relax by reading a good book or enjoying a beverage at the pop-up snack bar. If you’re local to Washington, DC, you can beat the heat and experience the installation until September 7, 2015.

선천적으로 녹내장을 갖고 태어난 라일라는 남들에게 약한 모습을 

보이지 않게 한쪽 눈에 안대를 해야 했다.


라일라의 아버지 'Redditor Gfgrubb'은 이 안대에 재미있는 그림을 

그려 넣기 시작했다.


요 몇달동안 인스타그램의 'laylaspatches' 사이트에서는 아빠의 딸에 

대한 애뜻한 마음을 표현한 사진들이 올라오자 온통 감동의 물결로 넘쳐났다.


오늘도 아빠는 어떤 패치로 해줄까 고민 중에 있다.

Born with a small cataract, baby Layla was forced to wear a patch over her eye to make the other one stronger. Making light of a challenging issue, her father, Redditor Gfgrubb, starting drawing clever and creative drawings on her patch. After receiving a wave of internet support over the last few months, the loving dad created an Instagram page called laylaspatches, where they happily proclaim: "A new patch everyday!"

This project won't last forever, though. Layla may only need to wear the patch until she's four years old. "This should prevent a lazy eye and surgery if we're lucky," Gfgrubb explains. Regardless, the father and daughter will have a fun and creative project that they'll always be able to look back on and remember fondly.

2036년 존 티토의 지도 상에 일본이 한국의 식민지로 되어 있다. 실현가능성은 없겠지만 

생각만 해도 통쾌하다.

  자신이 타임머신을 타고 2036년 미래에서 왔다고 주장하고 있는 미국 예언가 존티토의 2036년 지도가 네티즌 사이에서 화제가 되고 있다.


10월 7일 인터넷 커뮤니티 사이트 등에 퍼진 '존티토의 예언'은 2036년 제3차 세계대전이 발발 후 변화될 각국의 지도가 게시돼 있다.

 

특히 주목할 부분은 일본이 한국의 식민지로 나타나 있다는 점이다. 지도에서 한국의 본토는한반도를 넘어 만주와 연해주를 포함한 중국의 해안선을 포함하고 있다. 일본은 한국의 식민지로 표기돼 있다.


사진을 본 네티즌들은 "2036년 대한민국은 강대국이 된다",


 "일본이 우리 식민지라니 통쾌하다", "3차 대전이 언제 일어날까"

"예언이 정말 맞았으면 좋겠다" 등 뜨거운 반응을 보이고 있다.

 

한편 존티토는 미국발 광우병 파동을 예언했으며 결국 이를 적중시켜 화제가 된 바 있다.


 

​​​​John's Posts about the Year 2036 in his Worldline

 ​

I remember 2036 very clearly. It is difficult to describe 2036 in detail without spending a great deal of time explaining why things are so different.


In 2036, I live in central Florida with my family and I'm currently stationed at an Army base in Tampa. A world war in 2015 killed nearly three billion people. The people that survived grew closer together. Life is centered on the family and then the community. I cannot imagine living even a few hundred miles away from my parents.


There is no large industrial complex creating masses of useless food and recreational items. Food and livestock is grown and sold locally. People spend much more time reading and talking together face to face. Religion is taken seriously and everyone can multiply and divide in their heads.

'I'm a woman': Tearful Bruce Jenner reveals he considered suicide while transitioning to his 'true self' in Diane Sawyer interview which will be his last as a man 



Bruce Jenner's highly-anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer was aired to millions of viewers on ABC last night 

In tell-all interview, former Olympian revealed he 'is a woman' - and has known of his true identity since childhood

'For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,' said Bruce. 'Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie... I can't do it anymore'

He also said all three of his ex-wives knew about his gender struggles, which once left him contemplating suicide

He took hormones for years in the 1980s and developed 36B breasts, but was too scared to continue with change 

Eldest four children support him; Kim Kardashian described as most supportive, but Khloe is having a 'hard time'

Bruce said despite his 'female soul' and plans for full gender reassignment surgery, he is only attracted to women

He said 'I am not gay. I am, as far as I know, heterosexual. As far as I know, I've never been with a guy.'   

Revealed that this is his last interview before he becomes a 'she' - but refused to disclose female name he will use

Bruce sparked rumors about his gender identity last year after visibly altering his appearance in a number of ways


브루스 제너는 어제밤 ABC방송에서 앵커 다이앤 소여와 인터뷰에서 "자신은 여자"라고 밝혔다.

어려서부터 여자로 알고 있었다고 말하기도 했다.


그와 결혼한 3명의 아내들도 그의 성 정체성의 혼란에 대해 알고 있었으며 한번의 자살을 시도한 

적도 있다고 말했다.


부르스 제너는 1980년대에 수년간 호르몬제를 맞았으며 가슴이 36B컵으로 발달하기도 했다.


가장 많은 지지를 보내는 그의 의붓 딸인 킴 카다시안 등 4명의 자녀들은 그의 성 정체성에 대해 

대체로 인정하고 있는 편이다.


브루스 제너는 앞으로 완벽한 성전환 수술을 계획하고 있다.

그는 말한다 "나는 절대로 게이가 아니다. 그냥 이성애자 일 뿐이다"라고


이번이 진정한 여자가 되기전 마지막 인터뷰라고 말하며 끝내 그의 여자 이름을 밝히기를 거부했다.

부르스 제너는 작년부터 외형이 여자로 변해가면서 그에 대한 무성한 루머들이 떠돌기도 했다.


미국의 브루스 제너는 1976년 몬트리올 올림픽 남자 육상 10종경기 금메달리스트이다.

그리고 미국의 모델 및 배우인 킴 카다시안의 의붓 아버지이기도 하다.


그는 얼마전에 여자로 성전환 수술을 했는데

파파라치들이 그의 사진을 찍으려고 하자 교통사고를 내기도 했다.


미국 일각에서는 여자로 변해가는 부르스 제너에 대해 일대 충격으로 받아 들이고 있다.

By SOPHIE JANE EVANS FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

Bruce Jenner has revealed that he identifies as a woman - his 'true self' and a childhood dream - in an explosive ABC interview with Diane Sawyer.


The 65-year-old Olympic gold medalist and reality TV star sparked rumors about his gender identity last year after visibly altering his appearance.


And last night, he confirmed that he is reinventing himself physically in a bid to transition from male to female in the highly-anticipated, intimate sit-down.


Speaking in front of millions of viewers, including Kim Kardashian and her family, Bruce tearfully revealed: 'For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.


'My brain is much more female than it is male. That's what my soul is. Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie.' He firmly added: 'I can't do it anymore.' 


During the interview, Bruce also admitted that he has been regularly taking female hormones - and plans to completely transform into a woman.


But he said he was still attracted to females. 'I was never attracted to the guys,' he told Diane, explaining how he has always enjoyed a good sex life.


Jenner added: 'I am not gay.I am, as far as I know, heterosexual. As far as I know, I've never been with a guy. I've always been married, raising kids.'


And he denied that his revelations were for publicity purposes. Instead, he made them due to his inability to continue to 'pull the curtain', he said. 


Indeed, hiding his identity was so painful for Bruce that it once left him contemplating suicide to escape from the never-ending scrutiny, he revealed.


Many viewers and celebrities were taking to social media last night to congratulate Bruce on making a giant leap for the transgender community. Lady Gaga tweeted: '#BruceJennerABC Now that is bravery', before telling her fans to 'empower people like Bruce' globally by 'being loving & not mean'.


Meanwhile, Bruce's 17-year-old daughter, Kylie Jenner, tweeted an emotional message to her father. 'Understandingly, this has been very hard for me. You will hear what I have to say when I'm ready to but this isn't about me. I'm so proud of you, Dad. You are so brave. My beautiful Hero,' she wrote. 


However, other users expressed concern that Bruce's TV appearance has simply made transgenderism into a spectacle.

Twitter user Ali Levine wrote: 'I am completely behind transgender equality but this Bruce Jenner interview is such a spectacle,' while a man named Daniel tweeted: '#BruceJenner coming forward is not going to help #transgender people. He's a spectacle, not an "idol." #BruceJennerInterview.' 


At the start of last night's program, titled 'Bruce Jenner: The Interview', Diane asked Bruce: 'Are you ready?', to which he replied: 'I am, let's do it.'


The star continued: 'You know what... it's going to be tough. I've been thinking about this day forever and what I should do with my life. How do I tell my story, how do I tell people what i've been through? And that day is today.' He then asked Diane for a tissue and used it to wipe his tear-filled eyes.


Clutching the tissue, Bruce remarked: 'We have to keep our sense of humor about this. Me of all people - Bruce Jenner - has to deal with these issues.'


Seconds later, he finally answered the question that has been on everyone's lips for the past year - is he transitioning from a man into a woman?


'I have always been very confused with my gender identity since I was this big,' admitted Bruce, lowering his hand to several feet above the ground.


'People look at me differently. They see this macho male, but this female side is part of me, it’s who I am. I was not genetically born that way, and so now I have all the male parts and all that kind of stuff so in a lot of ways we’re different but we still identify as female.'



He added: 'My whole life has been getting me ready for this. I'm really excited about the future, about what good I could do in the world. It's going to be an emotional rollercoaster, but somehow I'm gonna get through it... I feel like I’m going to be OK. 2015 is going to be quite a ride... Quite a ride.'


But despite his self-proclaimed 'female soul', Bruce said he does not describe himself as a woman stuck in a man's body. 'I'm a person and that's who I am,' he said. 'I'm not stuck in anyone's body. It's just me. It's who I am.' He added that last night's interview would be his last one as Bruce, as a 'he'.


And when asked if he dreams as a woman, he said he 'always' has done. Indeed, Bruce was only eight or nine years old when he first put on one of his mother's dresses while she was out of the house. He then carefully placed the feminine item back in the exact same spot to avoid getting caught.


'At the time, I didn’t know why I was doing it besides it just made me feel good,' he told Diane. He went on to tell her about a time, as an adult, that he was greeted by a storm of paparazzi after a doctor's appointment to get a trachial shave. 'That night I thought, 'Oh, it's, like, over,' he said.


'I was walking up and down this hall right here, back and forth, back and forth all night long. Heart's pounding. And I thought, wouldn't the easiest thing to be right now, and I could see where people get to that - is go in the room, get a gun. Boom. You know? Pain's over. Done. Go to a better place.


'And I thought, "nah, I cant do something like that". I mean, I wanna know how this story ends.' 


Reflective: 'My whole life has been getting me ready for this. I'm really excited about the future, about what good I could do in the world. It's going to be an emotional rollercoaster, but somehow I'm gonna get through it... 2015 is going to be quite a ride,' said Bruce

HOW BRUCE JENNER'S CHILDREN AND FORMER WIVES HAVE RESPONDED TO HIS INTERVIEW WITH DIANE SAWYER

THIRD WIFE, KRIS JENNER: 'Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero.' (She also lashed out out at Diane Sawyer for claiming she did not provide a comment to ABC on her former husband's revelations). 

 

STEPDAUGHTER KIM KARDASHIAN: She said yesterday morning: 'The family is watching all together with Bruce. As a family we always support each other 100 per cent and I know that I see things online that there is this divide and this one doesn’t support this and this one doesn’t support this and you know it’s all ridiculous and it’s all rumors and we love everyone in the family and we support everyone equally so we're excited to watch tonight and I’m excited for Bruce to tell his story on Diane Sawyer.'

She tweeted last night: 'Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter.'

STEPDAUGHTER KHLOE KARDASHIAN: She showed support for Bruce after Jamie Foxx poked fun at Jenner's transition during the iHeartRadioAwards in April, calling his jokes 'very mean and a low blow.' 

Yesterday, she tweeted: 'Just finished watching the #BruceJennerInterview with the family. Bruzer, I'm soooo proud of you! Dads really are heros.'

STEPDAUGHTER KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN: 'Couldn't be a more proud daughter. With courage and bravery, let's chaange the world. I am honored to stand by Bruce's side and support him.' 

 

KOURTNEY'S PARTNER, SCOTT DISICK: No public comment so far.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN: 'Just finished watching the #BruceJennerInterview with the family. Bruzer, I'm soooo proud of you! Dads really are heros' 

STEPSON ROB KARDASHIAN: No public comment so far.

DAUGHTER KENDALL JENNER: 'So very proud of you, my hero.'

DAUGHTER KYLIE JENNER: After the broadcast. she tweeted: 'Understandingly, this has been very hard for me. You will hear what I have to say when I'm ready to but...this isn't about me. I'm so proud of you, Dad. You are so brave. My beautiful Hero.'

She shared a message of support on Instagram yesterday morning. She posted a picture of her father from the Eighties wearing a crop top and denim shorts with the caption, 'Daddy throwback'. She added the hashtags: '#Tonight #DianeSawyer #ABC #love'

BRANDON JENNER 'Proud son.' Brandon and his wife Leah joined his siblings Burt, Brody and Casey on the Diane Sawyer interview, where they all voiced their support for Bruce. 

 

FIRST WIFE, CHRYSTIE SCOTT: 'I support him in whatever he chooses to do. I just want him to be happy. We see each other on and off at family events, and he is a very proud and present grandfather. We all support him.'

She told ABC in a statement: 'Someone who has lived 65 years of his life as the wrong gender has every right to live the last quarter of his life as his authentic self. I support him and so hope the world can too. I pray for his happiness for the rest of his journey.' 

SECOND WIFE, LINDA THOMPSON: She praised her ex-husband for being 'a champion for those who share the struggle to just be who they are.'

She also told ABC in a statement: 'Bruce has always had my loyalty, even if he wasn’t aware of it. I support his courage and commitment to this new chapter of his life. My hope is that his transition will inspire others who struggle with their identities, and my prayer is that humanity has evolved and been educated enough to exercise kindness toward those we may perceive as "different".'

In the second half of the interview, Diane asked Bruce how his children had taken the news that he identifies as a woman. The star revealed that Kim once caught him in a dress, while his daughters with his third wife, Kris Jenner - Kendall, now 19, and Kylie - had also seen him in women's clothes. 


He said Kris's daughter, Khloe Kardashian, 30, had reacted the worst to the news. 'Khloe has been very emotional, she's had the toughest time with it, she's had a lot of losses in her life,' he said, adding that Kim was 'by far the most accepting' to his decision to transform into a woman. 


Bruce revealed how he had explained his identity to his children. '[I told them] "God's looking down, making little Bruce. He gave me all these wonderful qualities. [But then He thought] wait a second, we've got to give him something in his life to struggle with. Let's give him the soul of a female".' he said.


I've been thinking about this day forever and what I should do with my life. How do I tell my story, how do I tell people what i've been through? And that day is today
Bruce Jenner 

Incredibly, he also told Diane that he had embarked on hormone therapy and electrolysis within 10 years of becoming an Olympic champion in 1976. He said he took the female hormone estrogen for a staggering five years, saying women do not know 'how lucky they are that they can be themselves'. 


However, fear drove him to stop the process and continue giving motivational speeches as a man, Bruce said in the two-hour interview.

'I felt like a liar,' he told Diane, reflecting on the speeches he gave, telling people to 'find the champion inside you' while wearing a suit. He admitted he would go back to his hotel after each event, take off his suit, and dress as 'her'. Both his first and second wives knew about his secret, he revealed.


'Chrystie was the first one to know,' he said of his first wife, Chrystie Crownover. 'I said these are my issues, this is what I deal with.' She was loving, he said, but fundamentally believed she could change him. Linda Thompson, his second wife, knew it was something deeper, he said. 


As for Kris, Bruce revealed that his third wife knew about his internal torment from the moment they started dating in the early 1990s. She saw him cross-dressing, he revealed, but he found it difficult to fully express how deep his feelings sat; that his believed his soul to be female.


'I kind of downplayed it,' he told Sawyer of the early days in the relationship. 'I feel like in a lot of ways, when you loves somebody, you have a tendency, you don't want to hurt them.' He claims Kris was relatively low-key when she found out. 'She didn't say much... "OK, you gonna change now?"'


Bruce added: 'I probably was not as good at saying, "This is really down deep in my soul and I don't know if I can go any farther like this."

'It was tough on her. You see your husband, I get that. I understand...Kris is a good woman. I've got no complaints with her. She's a good person.' 


Speaking out: Bruce (pictured pulling a face in the interview) said: 'You know what... it's going to be tough. I've been thinking about this day forever and what I should do with my life. How do I tell my story, how do I tell people what i've been through? That day is today'

The couple stayed together for more than two decades, raising Kris's four children, Bruce's four children, and their two biological daughters, Kendall and Kylie. Despite having 'a great sex life', Bruce said, he could no longer hide his 36B breasts. 

The high-profile pair divorced last December. 'If she had been good about it, we'd probably still be together,' said Bruce.


Before last night's interview, ABC had refused to confirm exactly what the Olympic decathlon winner would speak about.

Instead, the network simply promoted the sit-down as being 'wide-ranging'. Diane also declined to confirm what the interview would cover - but said it would be 'fascinating'.    


'I think we can all agree that some stories should only be told by the person who lives them,' said the 69-year-old acclaimed journalist. 'And he wants to speak directly tonight, so I’m going to let him say first what he wants to say, but we did talk over several days, long conversations.'


She added that the 'fascinating and interesting' interview would cover Bruce's children's reactions - and 'what they do to try and be a family again'.    


Speaking before the broadcast, Diane revealed what she hopes viewers will take away from the revelations. 'I hope people talk with other people, with families, with friends, because there is so much to think about,' she said. ‘Not just about what he is going to tell you but about everyone’s life.' 


Yesterday, just hours before the tell-all interview, Kim revealed that her family would all be watching the sit-down, which began at 9pm EDT. 

'Champion': Also today, Bruce's second wife, Linda Thompson, tweeted her support for her former husband, who grew up in New York

Speaking to E! reporters in New York at the Variety Power of Women event, the 34-year-old said: 'We always support each other. Our family is super supportive of everything that we do and you know we're gonna watch the special tonight and support Bruce and watch it with him tonight.'


Meanwhile, Bruce's second wife, Linda, tweeted her support for her ex-husband, who grew up in a middle class home in New York.


'Once a champion of Olympian magnitude...now a champion for those who share the struggle to just be who they are,' the 64-year-old wrote.  


She followed it with the hashtags #compassion #acceptance #tolerance #education #evolution #kindness #inclusion #freedom #peace.


And Bruce's daughter, Kylie, took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of her father - making her love for him known. She captioned the black-and-white image, in which Bruce shows off his athletic build: 'daddy throwback. #Tonight #DianeSawyer #ABC #love'. 


In a joint statement yesterday, Kylie and her sister Kendell said that their father has 'the biggest heart', adding: 'If he's happy, we're happy.' 


However, others were not so thrilled about Bruce's revealing interview.  


Wendy Williams said on her Thursday show that she was not happy with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, whom she called a 'fame wh**e'.


She also noted he should be paying more attention to Kylie, who is dating rapper Tyga, 25 - and said he should not have had kids in the first place. 


Former couple: After Bruce divorced from Kris  last December, Chrystie Crownover - his first love and an interior designer - spoke out about the rumors that he was transitioning. 'I just want him to be happy,' said Crownover. Above, Bruce and Kris are seen together in 2008

Rumors surrounding Bruce's gender identity first arouse in January 2012, when Ellen Pierson - who married Kris's ex-husband Robert Kardashian - claimed the star had been a cross-dresser 'for years. She said his first wife, Chrystie, had said he had a penchant for women's clothing. 


Two years later, the rumors escalated when Bruce was spotted in public after reportedly undergoing a laryngeal shave to flatted his Adam's Apple. In May 2014, he then refused to cut his long hair for Kim's wedding to rapper Kanye West, despite pressure from the bride and his estranged wife Kris. 


And in August that year, Bruce was pictured with what appeared to be breasts, sparking claims he was having hormone therapy to turn into a woman


A month later, Bruce started growing out his hair and shaving his legs. And in November, he was spotted wearing nail polish, a sports bra and Spanx.


After Bruce divorced from Kris in December, Chrystie - his first love and an interior designer - spoke out about the rumors that he was transitioning. 


People look at me differently. They see this macho male, but this female side is part of me, it’s who I am. I was not genetically born that way
Bruce 

She revealed that she still sees Bruce - the father of two of her children, Burt and Casey - at family events, and would support him in his decision. 'I just want him to be happy,' she said. 'He is a very proud and present grandfather. We all support him.' 


Bruce, whose father was a tree surgeon and mother was a housewife was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was young. However, he showed a strong talent for athletics - and excelled at sports while a student at Newtown High School in Connecticut.


In the 1976 summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, Bruce took the gold medal in the decathlon and quickly became a household name


During his marriage with Kris, Bruce was stepfather to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian.


The pair also had daughters Kendall, now 19, and Kylie, 17, together, before announcing their separation in 2013. They divorced the following year.


According to People magazine, the Kardashian girls 'were the last to know' about the 'true identity' of Bruce, who lives in a $3.5million Malibu mansion.


'They were just hysterical when it all really came out,' a source told the magazine in March.

'The whole family went through a rough patch.. It's naturally a difficult thing to process and work through.' 


Bruce’s children, Burt, 36 and Casey, 34, (from his marriage to Chrystie ) and Brandon, 33, and Brody, 31, (Linda) featured in tonight's interview.


They all spoke out in support of their father's new identity. 'I’m just honored and more proud than ever to be a part of the family,' Brandon told Diane.


And as Bruce noted at the end of the interview, 'I'm not saying bye to me. This has always been me.'

HOW HOLLYWOOD HAS REACTED TO BRUCE JENNER'S INTERVIEW

LAVERNE COX: Sending lots of love and support to #BruceJenner and their family tonight. It is always brave to stand in one's truth. Congrats darling.

ROB LOWE: I was proud of Bruce Jenner in Montreal and I'm proud of him tonight. Some have to fight more than the rest of us for their happiness.

ELLEN DEGENERES: Bruce Jenner is a beautiful, brave human being. Sending him lots of love. He's saving lives and opening minds tonight.

MILEY CYRUS: I LOOOOVE LOOOVE LOOOVE Bruce Jenner!!!!!!!

LADY GAGA: #BruceJennerABC Now that is bravery. We have the chance to write this moment in history together. Let's empower people like Bruce all over the world by being loving & not mean

JIMMY FALLON: One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. #BruceJenner #Brave

LARRY KING: I've interviewed #BruceJenner many times, and I'm in his corner. I support him & offer my respect.

ANDY COHEN: Mazel Tov to #BruceJenner - very very brave!!!

ELTON JOHN It's an incredibly brave thing to do, especially when you're older. I admire him for doing it and I support him 100 percent.

DR PHIL McGRAW I am so happy for him. This is his body and his life, and he needs to do what he wants to do. It drains your spirit if you can't be yourself. He is freeing himself. 

LENA DUNHAM: I think it's an incredibly powerful and brave move to disclose anything about your gender identity or sexuality in such a judgmental society. The interview is going to mean a lot to a lot of young people. 

PATRICIA ARQUETTE: You have to be so brave to live this truth of who you are. And if Mrs. Jenner is transitioning, I give all my support to her and love and appreciate everything she’s given to America. She’s fighting a fight for a lot of kids that are being kicked out of their own homes. Society turns their back on these kids and it’s really brutal.

BOY GEORGE: I absolutely applaud what [Jenner’s] doing and I think it’s very brave. And it actually makes me quite emotional. [Jenner] has my 150 percent support in every way. I think that the whole transgender thing is the new frontier. 

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: This is going to be a little bit of a game changer for people, and dealing with family and how people feel and having those conversations, this is going to be much bigger than ABC or Diane (Sawyer),

JEFFREY TAMBOR: Any movement toward authenticity is an important movement and everyone can relate to it.

DONALD TRUMP: It's very sad because he doesn't seem very happy, and maybe whatever he’s going to be doing will make him happy. If he's happy, I'm happy. 

LARRY KING: 'Had amazing talk with Olympian Rafer Johnson this week, who fully supports his fellow gold medal decathlon winner #BruceJenner & so do I' 

WENDY WILLIAMS I feel duped by Bruce… I don’t feel duped because he’s turning into a woman. I feel duped because he’s the same fame whore as the rest of the family. Bruce has bigger fish to fry than turning into Belinda. He should have thought about [transitioning] before he had all the kids… Belinda, shame on you! 

KIRSTIE ALLEY: 'Trying to find a place for myself midst a world that has mistaken bravery for insanity...Mandela was brave...the rest of this sh*t is absurd'

‘여성의 뒤태’.

 

이건 길거리에서 남자들의 눈과 목이 돌아가게 만들고 인터넷에선 어마어마한 트래픽을 이끌고 다니는 마법의 단어다. 


여성의 뒤태 중 가장 중요한 요소는 풍만한 엉덩이고 이건 전혀 새로울 게 없는 얘기다. 킴 카다시안이 어떻게 스타가 됐는지 우린 알고 있다. 물론, 남자가 잘록한 허리와 커다란 엉덩이를 젊음과 생식능력의 상징으로 여겨 선호한다는 데 대한 연구도 있다. 


그러나 새로운 연구가 남자의 ‘엉덩이’에 대한 관심에 진화심리학적인 근거를 덧붙였다. 더 정확하게 이야기하면 엉덩이와 척추가 이루는 각도에 대한 진화 심리학적 고찰인 셈이다. 


“인류의 오랜 역사 동안 여성은 임신하면 무게중심이 앞으로 쏠리는 문제로 항상 곤란을 겪어왔습니다. 허리뼈와 엉덩이의 각도가 뒤쪽으로 크게 꺾여 있을수록 임신했을 때 균형을 잡기가 쉽죠. 이런 맥락에서, 남성에게 이런 신체 구조를 가진 여성을 생식의 파트너로 선호한다는 가설을 세워볼 수 있습니다.” 이번 연구의 공동 저자인 텍사스 주립대학 대학원생 에릭 러셀이 허핑턴 포스트와의 이메일 인터뷰에서 밝힌 내용이다.


쉽게 얘기하면, 진화심리학적 측면에서 남성은 임신했을 때도 무게 중심을 잘 잡아 활동이 가능한 여성을 선호하게 됐다는 것이다. 


Is it Kim Kardashian's, erm, spine that men find so attractive? http://t.co/h0yARNK1wI

Richard Gray (@chalkmark) March 4, 2015


실제로 26도부터 61도까지 다양한 허리뼈의 각도를 가진 여성의 실루엣을 놓고 300명의 남성에게 선호도를 조사한 결과, 중립에 가까운 45.5도를 가장 선호하는 것으로 나타났다. 


연구자에 의하면 이는 허리뼈 통증이나 추간판 탈골 증 등의 부상을 피하기에 가장 좋은 각도라고 한다. 


“엉덩이의 피하지방이 크다고 해서 좋은 게 아닙니다. 엉덩이의 허리뼈가 이루는 각도가 가장 중요한 요소입니다. 남자는 아마도 엉덩이에 주의를 기울이고 여성의 허리뼈에 대한 정보를 습득하는 것 같습니다. 심지어 자기 자신들도 인식하지 못한 채 생각이 시키는 대로 말이죠.” 


이번 연구를 주관한 터키 빌켄트 대학의 심리학자 데이비드 루이스는 데일리 메일과의 인터뷰에서 이렇게 말했다. 


이번 연구는 2월 7일 ‘진화와 인간의 행동’ 학지에 게재됐다.

Science Explains Why Men Like Women With Curvy Booties

 

The Huffington Post  Macrina Cooper-White 

From that bootylicious Kim photo that broke the internet to hit songs like "All About That Bass," women's backsides are having a major moment in the spotlight.


Interest in the female form is nothing new, of course. Previous research suggests that men evolved to prefer women with small waists and big hips--signals of youth and fertility.


Now a new study adds surprising nuance to the the evolutionary theory behind men's interest in prominent posteriors--or, more precisely, in the curved spines that create them.

"Over the course of human history, women faced the adaptive problem of a forwarded-shifted center of mass during pregnancy," study co-author Eric Russell, a graduate student in psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, told The Huffington Post in an email. "Women with a greater degree of lumbar curvature ... were able to redistribute this center of mass to reduce the strain of pregnancy. Thus, we hypothesized that men should have a psychological adaptation to prefer these women as mating partners."


In short, male preference for this specific anatomical form likely evolved because it enabled women to sustain multiple pregnancies without injury and to forage productively during pregnancy.

For the study, more than 300 men rated the attractiveness of female silhouettes that had lumbar curvatures ranging from 26 to 61 degrees.


The men found a moderate curvature -- about 45.5 degrees -- to be just right. Such a curvature would have conferred evolutionary advantages without presenting health problems like back pain and slipped disks, the researchers said.


The researchers also found the structure of the spine itself, rather than just the buttocks' fat and muscle, is key.


"Men may be directing their attention to the butt and obtaining information about women's spines, even if they are unaware that that  is what their minds are doing," Dr. David Lewis, a psychologist at Bilkent University in Turkey and the study's lead author, told the Daily Mail. "Alternatively, men may have preferences for both lumbar curvature and buttock size. Future research is needed to better understand the latter."


The study was published online Feb. 7 in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior.

콘도의 이름은 '럭셔리 서바이벌 콘도(Luxury Survival Condo)'다. 지금은 전혀 사용되지 않는 미국 캔자스 주의 옛 핵미사일 격납고에 있다. 보안상의 이유로 저 자세한 주소는 밝혀지지 않았다. 


미사일 격납고를 개조한 이 호화 콘도는 어떠한 종류의 종말에서도 살아남을 수 있도록 건설됐다. 최대 75명을 수용할 수 있는 이 콘도에는 독립적인 거주 지역, 화려한 침실, 수영장, 피트니스 센터 등이 모두 갖춰져 있다. 또한 5년간 생활이 가능한 물자도 보관되고 있다. 


1개동은 이미 다 팔리고 없다. 대신 또 다른 콘도가 새로 건설 중이다.

109-year-old Alfred 'Alfie' Date, Australia's oldest man, has 80 years of knitting experience under his belt, which is why the nurses at his retirement home asked him for a highly specific, peculiar favor. Back in 2013, there was an oil spill that was negatively affecting the little penguins of Australia and New Zealand, a species with only 32,000 members in its colony on the Australian Phillip Island. 

After the devastating oil spill, the Victoria's Phillip Island Penguin Foundation began requesting knit jersey donations to ensure the survival of the penguins, since the jerseys prevent the penguins from ingesting toxins and keep water from getting into their sticky, oil-covered feathers, which causes them to freeze and be unable to hunt. Back in 2001, 96% of the 438 penguins affected in another oil spill were saved and rehabilitated using these sweaters. 

Alfie states that when the nurses asked him for this favor, he couldn't refuse, especially since he has trouble turning people down. The self-taught knitter, who began knitting after making a baby jacket for his nephew in the 1930s, remembers the sinking of the Titanic and the declaration of World War I. Australia's oldest man claims that "waking up every morning" is his secret for living a long, satisfying life.

Even after enough penguin sweaters were contributed, Alfie continues to keep his hands busy by knitting scarves for friends and beanies for premature babies. "It's a good way of getting along in life," Alfie states about knitting. "You make friends all the time, but you don't make a fool of yourself either."
