Palma, Associate Professor of Agricultural Economics and Director Human Behavior Laboratory, Texas A&M University, and first published on theconversation.comMany of us have already decided that things will be different in 2018. We’ll eat better, get more exercise, save more money or finally get around to decluttering those closets.But by the time February rolls around, most of us – perhaps as many as 80 percent of the Americans who make New Year’s resolutions – will have already given up.Why does our self-control falter, so often leaving us to revert to our old ways? The answer to this question has consequences beyond our waistlines and bank balances.Psychologists and economists have traditionally fallen into two seemingly contradictory camps about how self-control works. But recent research conducted by my colleagues and me suggests the two sides of self-control might both be at play in each of us.Self-control: A battery or a snowball?A well-known series of experiments conducted at Stanford University in the 1960s and ’70s asked children to choose between getting one marshmallow right away or waiting a few minutes and getting two marshmallows. Researchers found that the children who waited patiently, able to resist eating that first marshmallow even when no one else was around, tended to do better throughout life in terms of SAT scores and educational attainment, employment, health and other major measures of success.For those kids, self-control – not how intelligent, wealthy or educated their families were, or any other identified factor – was the main driver of their later success. In other words, the ability to delay gratification helps in virtually all aspects of life.But researchers have had trouble nailing down where self-control comes from and how it works. For decades, studies of self-control in short-term decision-making have led to two clear, but seemingly contradictory, results.One model suggested that self-control is a finite resource that can get used up if you lean on it too heavily, like a battery that loses its charge over time. Someone who resists the urge to eat a doughnut for breakfast, for example, might give in to the temptation of a cookie later in the afternoon. Each little demonstration of self-control throughout the day ends up exhausting the limited reserves.The alternative model suggested that exercising self-control can help you build up the skill. Not eating the doughnut might increase your motivation and confidence to stick with a healthy diet – like a snowball that gets bigger as it builds momentum rolling downhill.So is self-control something you run out of when it’s overtaxed? Or is it something that you get better at the more you “practice”? The debate continued as different research groups investigated the question in various ways – and came up with contradictory evidence for which model best explains the inner workings of self-control.Using biometrics to tell the whole storyPart of the problem has been how hard it is to conduct behavioral research. Traditional methods assume that test subjects fully understand the questions they’re asked and give honest answers. Unfortunately, researchers had no practical way of knowing whether this was the case, or whether they actually measured what they intended to.But here at the nation’s largest biometrics lab, my Texas A&M colleagues and I figured out a new way to investigate the question that didn’t rely on just what volunteers report to us.We designed a two-part experiment. First, we asked subjects to focus on a red bull’s-eye at the bottom of a computer screen for either six or 30 minutes. This task requires volunteers to exert self-control – it’s tempting to look away from the boring, unchanging bull’s-eye to the animated video playing elsewhere on the screen.Then subjects participated in a second laboratory task meant to measure impulsive buying: They could conserve a real US$5 cash endowment or purchase several household items on-site they hadn’t been looking to obtain. The task is analogous to going to the store and buying products that aren’t on your list. The idea is that self-control helps individuals reign in these impulse purchases.The bull’s-eye for subjects to focus on is at the bottom of the screen. In this image, eye tracking technology lets the researcher precisely monitor how many times, and when, subjects deviated from the instructions. Marco A. Palma, CC BY-NDOur innovation was that we did not have to assume people fully complied with the video-watching task – we were actually able to measure it via their physiological responses. By tracking eye movements, we could quantify very precisely when participants stuck to staring at the bull’s-eye – that is, when their self-control was keeping them on task. We also measured facial expression and brain activity for a clearer understanding of what was going on with each subject.Basically, we found that both sides of the self-control debate were right.For a while, most people could focus on the boring bull’s-eye. But they’d hit a fatigue point. After that, if subjects hung in there and still stuck with the task, they ended up exhausting their self-control “battery.” We could see this by looking at how many impulse buys they made in the second half of the study. If they’d pushed past the fatigue threshold in the previous task, they showed less self-control and ended up making more impulsive purchases. This pattern was shown in both what they “bought” in our experiment and also in the brain: The prefrontal cortex showed patterns indicative of impulse-buying behavior.On the other hand, subjects who eased off once they’d reached the fatigue threshold had a different experience. They remained in the “snowball” stage of self-control – they practiced the skill a bit, but didn’t overdo it to the point of exhaustion. In the next task, their brains didn’t exhibit the typical impulse-buying activity patterns. Exercising self-control on the bull’s-eye task, but not overdoing it, led to more self-control in our second task. These subjects did better at controlling impulse purchases than the other group of subjects who didn’t have the initial bull’s-eye-watching session that turned out to rev up self-control.Our study suggests that self-control has the qualities of both snowball and battery: Exhibiting self-control once makes it easier to do so again a short time later, but overdoing it initially makes us more likely to give up altogether.Understanding how to maximize self-control can help with that list of resolutions. Costello77/Shutterstock.comHow to make it past February 1Our new understanding of self-control provides lessons for sticking with those New Year’s resolutions.First, remember that slow and steady is best. If you want to get fit, start by walking around the block, not running five miles. Achieve enough to stay motivated, but don’t overdo it to the point of frustration. Don’t burn out your self-control battery.Second, remember that small acts of self-control build over time. Instead of drastically cutting all carbs or sugar out of your diet, consider giving up just one piece of bread or one can of soda per day. Over time, consuming fewer calories per day will result in gradual weight loss.And finally, realize that little acts of self-control in one area will improve your self-control in other areas. Getting traction with a healthier diet, for example, will increase your confidence and motivation to achieve another goal. As the self-control snowball gains some momentum, you’ll get better and better at sticking to your objectives.A more apt metaphor for our new understanding of self control is that it’s like a muscle. You can overdo it and exhaust it if you overexert yourself beyond your capabilities. But with consistent training it can get stronger and stronger.

I believe it’s been 10 years since we started building our holiday homes in the Dordogne. Back then, I thought we’d be finished in a jiffy. This couldn’t be further from the truth: the construction work, regulations, conditions, distance, business developments (including a building for us in Eindhoven in the meantime) and human circumstances all ended up having an influence. Looking back, it would’ve been easier to have made a tasteful documentary about the whole thing, which would probably have attracted a whole flock of loyal viewers. We definitely had all the ingredients of a TV drama. Miraculously, we appear to have survived in one piece. Not due to knowledge, providence or other commendable qualities, mind you, but through sheer luck, patience and the joy of building on a dream.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerI’ve always held a torch for ruins, which are pretty much the only type of ownership I have pursued since I was a child. I think it’s because a ruin is suggestive of the past while, at the same time, offering the possibility to reconstruct it, so that it also contains the future. What makes this place so unique is that the mill was built here because of the river to move the water wheel, rocks to build the dyke and walls, valley to dam up the water and woods to provide the construction timber. In fact, it’s the same approach I always take: working with materials, techniques, handicrafts and available possibilities, so that you lose as little time as possible to limiting conditions. We’ve constructed based on that tradition, but in a way they would have done in the past. Stone, wood, concrete, glass, natural stone: the buildings are in and of nature. Everything is detailed, almost everything is new, nothing stands out, it is not architecture that catches the eye or makes one think. Instead, it’s architecture that blends in and, above all, is designed to spend time in.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSave this picture!The Mill, Floor PlanSave this picture!© Thomas MayerWhat’s it like to be there now? Each and every time, I go there with the nagging thought that I’ve been completely mad to invest so much in one place and a couple of houses and, yet, every time I arrive I think to myself: everything is as it should be. Fortunately, I’m not the only one who feels and expresses this same sentiment. In fact, it almost feels like a miracle. The first morning, while enjoying a cup of coffee on the patio, for instance, I saw a little roe deer walking across the grass in the valley. The water murmurs day and night. The large windows give a sense of there being no difference between outdoors and indoors, and as if it has been this way for hundreds of years. When the weather gets hot, you can swim in the more than twenty metre-long canal (also when it’s not really hot, incidentally). Plants sprout out of the ground. You cook and eat like you’re living the life of Riley and you sleep like a baby. And because the water is always flowing, there are no mosquitos!Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSave this picture!The Mill, Floor PlanSave this picture!© Thomas MayerProject gallerySee allShow less#donotsettle: User-Oriented Architecture VloggingVideosVanke Pavilion – Milan Expo 2015 / Studio LibeskindSelected Projects Sharecenter_img Year:  2015 France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/627536/mill-mavaleix-piet-hein-eek Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation, Heritage•Chalais, France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/627536/mill-mavaleix-piet-hein-eek Clipboard Projects Mill Mavaleix / Piet Hein EekSave this projectSaveMill Mavaleix / Piet Hein Eek Architects: Piet Hein Eek Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

The Kelly family have a passion for cooking that few families do. Their interest is so great that they frequently try to decipher the ingredients of dishes in their favorite restaurants and later reinvent them at home. They also have a respect for heritage and sustainable design that along with their culinary passion became the foundation for the design of their new home.Save this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitCarlton is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Melbourne. It was established in 1851 to the North-East of the city when the Gold Rush began in Australia. The housing typology is primarily brick Victorian-style townhouses, with the vast majority of the plots being narrow and elongated, accessible from both the front and the rear by narrow laneways. Carlton is also the epicenter of Italian cuisine and community within the city of Melbourne.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Section 02The Kelly’s bought two of these Victorian townhouses in Carlton with a plan to combine the two lots, demolish the additions built in the 1950’s and 1970’s, restore the original heritage streetfront, and add a new addition to the rear. An important aspect of the architectural project was to maintain the ‘layers’ of history that had made their mark over the decades on the property whilst also moulding the house around Michael and Angela’s culinary passion.Save this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitThe house runs from West to East but in order to maximise the play of light within the space the design was divided into northern and southern zones. The new volume of the extension is located in the southern zone, overlooking a garden to the north to ensure that the low winter sun has access to the interior of the house. The house is divided into old and new with the front of the house restored to its original heritage style. The first floor addition at the back of the property twists to run north-south instead of east-west and overhangs the garden to form a shaded courtyard. To maintain the conceptual foundation of the design this twist has its central axis in the kitchen space.Save this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitWith a dedication to the philosophy of sustainable development, all the bricks from the buildings that were demolished were recovered, cleaned and organized by hand by the Kelly’s, to be recycled and reused in the new construction. Despite having to demolish part of the northern house to make room for a garden, the perimeter walls at the edge of the site were deliberately kept free from any major modifications. Those walls defined the history of the house, different renovations over time represented in the layers of bricks in a wall. Along with this, the new construction highlights the recycled bricks as a show of respect to the house’s historical value.Save this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitThe Kellys maintain a very active social life, one that extends to their neighbours and so it became important that the garden open directly onto the back laneway becoming an extension of the streetscape. This sense of community, food and respect for history permeates the home and provides a rich space for its inhabitants.Save this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitProject gallerySee allShow lessDiderot University Restaurant / Chapuis Royer ArchitectesSelected ProjectsEncore Melaka Theatre / ASIMA ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Canning Street House / Riofrío Carroll Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952857/canning-street-house-riofrio-carroll-architects Clipboard Houses Area:  280 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Willem-Dirk Du Toit Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Riofrío Carroll Architects Area Area of this architecture project Canning Street House / Riofrío Carroll ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCanning Street House / Riofrío Carroll ArchitectsSave this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du Toit+ 22Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyHouses, Extension•Carlton, Australia 2020 Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeRiofrío Carroll ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionCarltonOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on December 14, 2020Cite: “Canning Street House / Riofrío Carroll Architects” 13 Dec 2020.

This year clothing recycling is expected to raise nearly £10 million for them.Tony Hosking, Head of Clothing Collection Division, explains that the design of the banks had evolved over time. However, he wanted the new look to convey the work of the charity more clearly to donors and the public.After the charity approached Central Saint Martins, three graduate students took part in the project. They got to meet some of the people that the Salvation Army helps by visiting various projects.They also visited the charity’s recycling centre in Kettering.

India: RSF deplores arbitrary raids on Delhi news website Newsclick

first_img“This series of searches on the spurious pretext of money-laundering allegations is intolerable,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “They constitute a serious violation of press freedom and the confidentiality of journalists’ sources, which are guaranteed by Indian legislation, and they are preventing the site from operating in a normal manner. “We urge the authorities to drop the arbitrary proceedings that the Enforcement Directorate initiated against Newsclick and we call on the government stop using federal agencies as tools for harassing critical media.” At the same time, searches were carried out at the homes of several senior members of Newsclick’s staff, including editor-in-chief Prabir Purkayastha, editor Pranjal Pandey and human resources head Amit Chakravarty. Four days later, the searches are still continuing at the homes of Purkayastha and author Githa Hariharan, who have not been allowed to leave since they began. Newsclick had been praised for its coverage of the big protests that farmers have been staging in the New Delhi suburbs for months. The authorities have repeatedly obstructed journalists covering these protests, as RSF reported last week. An ED agent leaving Newsclick’s office during the raid (photo: Express Photo/Tashi Tobgyal). Rejecting the accusations, Newsclick said in statement that “the selective leak of misleading facts is nothing but a malicious attempt to smear the image of Newsclick and discredit our journalism.” It added that it was cooperating fully with the authorities and had “nothing to hide.” News India is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Documentary filmmaker beaten by embassy security guards

first_img Follow the news on Canada Receive email alerts News News News June 21, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Documentary filmmaker beaten by embassy security guards Raouf was beaten when he was about to film absentee voting at the embassy in the country’s presidential election. He told Canadian police, who were outside the embassy because of a demonstration by Iranians calling for a vote boycott, what he was going to do and was given the go-ahead. Once inside the building, he immediately asked for permission at the reception desk and set up his equipment. Three embassy guards then ordered him to switch off his camera and hand over the film in it. Raouf said he had not yet started filming and asked them to call the Canadian police. The guards said they would but failed to do so. One of them seized the camera and looked at film taken of the protest outside the embassy. Masouf again asked for Canadian police to be called.The guards then punched him on the nose and face, breaking a tooth, tore his clothes and threw him against a wall, kicking him in the legs and in the crutch. Masouf broke a window to attract the attention of the police, who came into the embassy and took him out after 45 minutes. Though seriously injured, he was able to describe the attack to the demonstrators and media outside the embassy before being taken to hospital. His camera was returned but without the film in it.
