Researchers Say Colorful, Funny Socks are Markers of Success, Individuality

SAN FRANCISCO, USA, July 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to researchers at Harvard University, all one has to do to tell if a person is likely to succeed is to look at his or her socks.

In a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research, “The Red Sneakers Effect: Inferring Status and Competence from Signals of Nonconformity,” researchers took a look a nonconformity and how that related to social status and competency.

They concluded that nonconformists such as those who wear “crazy socks”–socks with bright colors and bold patterns–are intentionally signaling that they are not concerned with prevailing social ideas or practices.

Though nonconformists can sometimes be characterized as strange or weird by those who conform, nonconformists benefit from their shunning of social norms as they are perceived by those who adhere to societal norms to be more competent and of a higher social status.

Dr. Adam Galinsky, a social psychologist from the Northwestern University, conducted a study similar to the “The Red Sneakers Effect.” He arrived at some of the same conclusions as the Harvard researchers before concluding that what a person wears literally affects the way they think, feel and act.

David Jason, a spokesman for the sock web site, SockstoBuy.com said he understands why something as simple as a pair of fun dress socks can show nonconformity and affect behavior.

“Crazy socks are kind of the modern equivalent to the power tie,” he said.

“In the 1980s everybody wore power ties so that they would be perceived as powerful and lacking weakness. In modern society where ‘humble bragging’ is a thing and people are trying to downplay their viciousness, crazy socks for men is the new stand in.”

“Although socks are hidden for the most part by a person’s pants, all it takes is one flash of a person’s socks and the other person knows what time it is. The boldness of the socks shows the bystander that the ‘flasher’ is a rebel and proud of it.”

GAPFRAME Reveals the World is in a Critical State

The World GAPFRAME Profile

Never before has the state of the world been measured across four sustainability dimensions. The news is not good, the world in a critical state.

The SDGs provide a framework to secure a sustainable future. To succeed we must identify the gaps. I welcome the GAPFRAME, which can play a role in identifying the sustainable development priorities.”

— Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever

LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, July 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a measurement of global sustainability the GAPFRAME (www.gapfame.org) is unique. Never before has the state of the world been measured across four sustainability dimensions and against the ideal of a safe space. The news is not good, the world in a critical state. The task is clear: moving the world to a safe space requires improvements in every one of the 24 issues measured.

The GAPFRAME translates the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into 24 relevant issues and then measures each country and region across four sustainability dimensions: Planet, Economy, Society, and Governance. It maps the results to a target safe space, highlighting the resulting gap. To ensure strong sustainability the GAPFRAME ranks countries over the score of their lowest dimension.

This first GAPFRAME Report covers 155 countries, 20 Geographical and 3 Geopolitical Regions. It is published by GAPFRAME.ORG, a group of multi-stakeholder sustainability thought leaders, driven by the desire to make it easier to deliver on the SDGs. This coincided with the launch of the GAPFRAME by Katrin Muff, Ph.D. at the UNPRME Global Forum which takes place during the High Level Political Forum Exchange in New York.

When asked why is the world doing so badly, Katrin Muff explained:
'With a GAPFRAME Score of 5.1 the world is in a critical state with all four of its dimensions measuring less than 6.3. No surprise! Major threats in issues of peace & cooperation, structural resilience, business integrity, and transparency result in Governance being identified as the priority dimension. However burning issues such as waste treatment, social integration, clean energy, innovation, and land & forest, represent equal threats in the dimensions of Planet, Economy, and Society. On a slightly more positive note: biodiversity, sustainable consumption, carbon quotient, clean air, and living conditions are at a critical stage.'

The GAPFRAME clearly outlines the priority issues for each nation so that governments, business, community and education can start to act. It provides a concrete starting point for strategic discussions on sustainability and an effective decision-making tool to help focus on activities that can bring the world to a safe space.

Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever said:
 ‘The SDG’s provide the world with a framework to secure a sustainable future that works for everyone. To succeed we must understand where the gaps are. As has rightly been said, you treasure what you measure. That is why I welcome the GAPFRAME, which can play a helpful role in identifying the sustainable development priorities for each country and region.’

Key Findings:
-There is evidence that the more developed a country is, the more advanced it is at improving all its issues towards a safe space, of course with exceptions – e.g. USA ranking at 89.
-Planet (the environment) is the most challenged dimension with only 1% of countries contributing to a safe space.
-Scandinavian countries emerge as best practice examples on the journey to safe space

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, -, July 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Anchor Linda Cavanaugh of NBC KFOR-TV News in Oklahoma City interviewed Elizabeth Sanders, founder of HorseOPeace.com goat milk soap company, who told the famed newswoman that there is a growing national trend to homemade natural soap as people avoid toxins and chemicals in most store-bought soaps.

On NBC KFOR News4, Elizabeth offered a 25% discount on HorseOPeace.com goat milk soaps, by entering Couple Code: NBC17.

Linda, the Emmy-winning Anchor and first woman to co-anchor the evening newscasts of Oklahoma City’s NBC KFOR News4, then teamed with Elizabeth to help demonstrate how to make soap at home. In a talk with the HorseOPeace entrepreneur Linda noted natural soap “is a way to avoid a lot of chemicals and added ingredients in commercial soaps.”

The Anchor asked, “With all the wonderful, natural additives in HorseOPeace soaps, does the soap still clean and lather?” Elizabeth responded, “HorseOPeace goat milk soap lathers beautifully and you don’t get the film from detergent bars on most store shelves.

Linda noted that Elizabeth was quoted in the New York Times about the trend to homemade natural soaps, as the Times reported “HorseOPeace sells 17 kinds of raw goats’ milk soap bars, scented and unscented” and the Times called Elizabeth’s “unpretentious” as she explained “Our soaps are all naturally beige. We’re not trying to beautify with dyes and make it look unnatural.”

Trump to Sessions: You’re Fired?

I would urge caution to those individuals who are passionate about the legalization of marijuana against prematurely breaking out the champagne.

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, July 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — President Donald John Trump has ratcheted up his Twitter attacks against Attorney General Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions during the past few days, referring to him as “weak” and “beleaguered.” It is clear that Trump wants Sessions out, and as far as the president is concerned, the sooner, the better.

Even an apoplectic Trump knows that firing Sessions is not an astute move. Worth noting this has not stopped Trump from similar actions, including the firing of FBI director, James Comey, which added fuel to the continuing Russian investigation fires. It appears that the tack Trump has chosen is to harangue and embarrass Sessions to the point of forcing his resignation.

Sessions’ hatred of state-licensed marijuana businesses is well-known. Many proponents of state-licensed marijuana businesses are elated that Trump is seeking to force Sessions out. I would urge caution to those individuals who are passionate about the legalization of marijuana against prematurely breaking out the champagne.

Sessions was sworn in as attorney general on February 9th. Although his rhetoric against marijuana has increased in frequency and degree, he has not yet taken any direct actions against state-licensed marijuana programs. He did not seek to prohibit the opening of Nevada’s new recreational marijuana program on July 1st of this year. That certainly came as a pleasant and unexpected surprise to me.

Those of you who have read my prior articles know that I am not a fan of Jeff Sessions. To his credit, he has been particularly efficient at ramming through a number of Trump initiatives at the Justice Department. Of particular concern to me is his July 19th reinstatement of the Department of Justice’s asset forfeiture program. The asset forfeiture program allows the Federal Government and local law enforcement agencies to seize marijuana businesses and their assets.

Both the mainstream and marijuana media treated the reinstatement as a mere footnote. My conclusion is that the asset forfeiture program is a serious threat to the state-licensed marijuana industry. The implementation of this program puts all state-licensed marijuana businesses, their assets and their principal’s assets at risk. I am sure that there are numerous local law enforcement agencies who are ‘chomping at the bit’ to begin shutting down marijuana businesses by seizing their assets.

In addition to reinstating the asset forfeiture program, Sessions appointed a task force on crime reduction and public safety. He authorized the task force to include a review of marijuana law and enforcement policies. The task force is expected to make their recommendations on July 27th. It is likely that their report will not be very favorable to America’s state-licensed marijuana industry.

Senator Ted Cruz and Rudy Giuliani are being suggested as possible replacements for Jeff Sessions. One could determine that no one could be more hostile to the marijuana industry than Sessions, but Cruz or Sessions could prove that theory wrong.

As Will Rogers said, “Things can’t go on like this, and they didn’t, they got worse.”

There is an old Irish proverb that should be taken to heart. “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.” That proverb has never been truer than today.

250 years ago, in 1767, Captain Samuel Wallis discovered Tahiti. (By Corinne RAYBAUD.)

TAHITI, POLYNESIA, July 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Corinne RAYBAUD, Doctor of History at the University Paris X Nanterre and Doctor of law at the University Montesquieu Bordeaux IV has focused her research activities on the history of Tahiti, Easter island and the islands of the eastern Pacific ocean. Her specialities are Easter island between 1862 and 1888 and the development of the law in eastern Polynesia from 1767 to 1945. Corinne Raybaud lives in Tahiti.
Her first book published in 1996 is dedicated to Easter Island. Since 2008, she wrote books based on her universitary works on Easter Island and polynesian laws and the Oceanic French Establishments during WWI (1914-1918). She is the co-author of two biographies on John Brander and Dutrou Bornier two influent people during the 19th century in the Pacific. In 2011, she published a historical novel today known as Cornelia which relates the story of a great tahitian family from the 19th century to nowadays. In 2012 and 2013 she wrote short stories about women in Tahiti where she narrated their brave and moving lives.
Her last book named " Wallis discovered Tahiti, 250 years ago in 1767" relates the circumnavigation of Captain Samuel Wallis on the Dolphin, the discovery of Tahiti then called "Island of King George III" and the first meeting between European navigators and Tahitian people. She had the project to make small movies about the arrival of the first navigators.
Samuel Wallis (1728-1795). In 1766, Samuel Wallis who had already served under Commodore John Byron became at 38 years old the captain of the HMS Dolphin. On June 19, 1767, he discovered Tahiti. Wallis decided to name the island of Tahiti after the King George III, who ruled Britain at that moment. After discovering Tahiti and lots of other islands in the Pacific he came back to England in May 1768. Even though he is not as famous as French Captain Louis Antoine de Bougainville and English Captain James Cook, Wallis was the one who first discovered Tahiti. When he came back to England he gave precious information to James Cook before he traveled across the Pacific and some men of his crew even sailed with Cook.
In 1767, Captain Samuel Wallis discovered Tahiti and anchored in Matavai Bay in the north of the island. He called the island "The Island of King George III"
Nine months later, in 1768 French Captain Louis Antoine de Bougainville arrived in Tahiti but anchored on the East coast (Hitia'a) and thought that he was the first to discover the island, and named it: "The New Cythera"
In 1769, Captain James Cook disembarked in Matavai in the same place where Samuel Wallis anchored, because Wallis came back to England just before Cook left forTahiti. He called the island : O'Taheite.
These circumnavigations lasted two or three years. There were dangerous. Scurvy was a painful and mortal disease and after these trips, captains used more oranges, limes, cabbage to save their crews.
For three years, 2017-2018-2019 we will celebrate in Tahiti the arrival of these famous explorers : Samuel Wallis in 1767, Louis Antoine de Bougainville in 1768, James Cook in 1769.
