Aliens are living among us, first British astronaut into space confirms

Aliens exist and they could be living among us, the first British astronaut into space has said

Dr Helen Sharman, who went into space 28 years ago, said it is without a doubt that “all sorts of forms of life” are alive in the universe – but perhaps we “simply can’t see them” as they are so different to humanity. “

Aliens exist, there’s no two ways about it,” Dr Sharman told the Observer Magazine. “There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of forms of life.

 “Will they be like you and me, made up of carbon and nitrogen? Maybe not. It’s possible they’re right here right now and we simply can’t see them.”

Daylight Saving Time Negatively Affects Our Brain in Long-Term, Study Says

Are the bi-annual adjustments to our internal clocks for daylight saving time actually having a larger effect on our bodies than we realize?

Neurology professor says daylight saving is not worth the harm to our bodies: ‘It’s a misalignment of our biologic clocks for eight months of the year.’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Daylight saving time is typically considered nothing more than an annoyance or simple fact of life as we “spring forward” and “fall back” each year. But, are these bi-annual adjustments to our internal clocks actually having a larger effect on our bodies than we realize? According to a new research piece conducted at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, the answer to that question is yes.

STUDY- Taking More Selfies: Less Likable, Less Successful, More Insecure

If you lose sleep over the number of likes on your Instagram account, you might want to think twice before posting that selfie.

That’s the main takeaway from a new study in the Journal of Research in Personality by Washington State University psychologists.

The scientists conducted a novel experiment with hundreds of actual Instagram users to determine if there are certain types of self‑image posts that cause others to make snap judgements about the user’s personality.

Their work shows that individuals who post a lot of selfies are almost uniformly viewed as less likeable, less successful, more insecure and less open to new experiences than individuals who share a greater number of posed photos taken by someone else. Basically, selfie versus posie.
