    The average person can recognize 5000 faces

    If you live in a city , you’ve probably seen tens of thousands of passing faces in your lifetime. But how many of those faces can you recognize if you saw them again? New research suggests you could probably recall around 5,000 of them. For the study the researchers divided the faces people knew into two categories: personally known faces, like your neighbor, and public figures like musicians. Participants were given an hour to recall faces in their personal lives, which meant that they could either form a mental image of the face or believe they would recognize the person if they saw them. Researchers provided several categories to help…

    How to Paint a Cherry Tree in Watercolor – Splatter Painting Trees – Paint a Tree – Sakura

    Hello my friends and welcome to another Tuesday of tutorial. I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today, by popular demand, we are going to paint a cherry tree. We begin by preparing our tones.

    Research Minute: How a Built Environment Impacts the Elderly

    The focus of my dissertation is I’m really interested in healthy aging and how things like the built environments and our neighborhood surroundings impact our health status particularly mental health for older adults. There’s terrible statistics out there that only about one in three older adults will age successfully. And that’s not nearly enough and we all are going to lose, have some issues with losing our independence, but we want to maintain that as much as we can. We want to make sure that you can still go to the church that you’ve always attended or you can go out for coffee with your friends, that you can take…
