In one extra condition, the opaque gorilla stopped halfway across the display, turned to face the camera, thumped its chest, and then exited on the other side of the screen. Even in this condition, half of the observers did not see it. In the static IB paradigm, observers often fail to notice the onset of a new, un ...

  • Cats - 1,226 words
    ... All types of cats come from the same, basic evolution. Cats are meat-eating, or carnivores, and great hunters; they have sharp, pointed teeth called canines and claws that can be retracted into their paws (Brown 1147).

A diskette can contain much more data than a written page, and it takes fewer places It is possible to get the New York telephone book on just one diskette. In the near future, a new area will be taken over by co ...
