Christopher Chabris, along with Daniel Simons, are cognitive psychologists who have each received accolades for their research on a wide range of topics. Their “Gorillas in Our Midst” study reveals the dark side of our ability to pay attention and has quickly become one of the best-known experiments in all of psychology; it inspired a stage play and was even discussed by characters on C.S.I. Chabris, who received his Ph.D. from Harvard, is a psychology professor at Union College in New York. Simons, who received his Ph.D. from Cornell, is a psychology professor at the University of Illinois. Daniel Simons Daniel ... market research, surveys and trends

From Dan Cantor, Working Families Party, please forward. With a coupla comments from me. Ironic, no horrific, ruling a while back, coming on as one train car of many that are filled with pieces of law that bolster corporate person status while further subjugating individuals--persons & our bodies. This, too, while I'm busy working on a talk & workshop on commoning & the body. Remember: corporate personhood legislation has been modified in parallel with the stripping of individual rights (habeas corpus, labor rights, etc) for many years now, more fully in the past decade. So, time to act. Only thing: we actually have LESS ... market research, surveys and trends


A Republic - If We Can Keep It - 98.07
F the many remarks uttered during the U.S. Senate investigation of the 1996 national elections -- elections that saw the laws on campaign spending and contributions stretched to the point of absurdity -- one of the most telling came in a brief comment by the former White House deputy chief of staff Harold Ickes. Challenged about his handling of a questionable transaction during the final week of the 1996 campaign, Ickes defended his conduct in part by pointing to the chaotic atmosphere all around him: "We were like Mad Hatters," he said. This allusion to the fundraising madness of the 1996 election cycle seems apt -- ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Campaign Finance Reform: A New Era - Campaign Finance Reform ...
Partisan deadlock leaves the Federal Election Commission (FEC) without a quorum to enforce federal campaign finance laws for six months of a year that saw the highest political spending in history. The collapse of the mortgage giants triggers the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, after Congress - which reaped $907 million in campaign contributions from the banking and financial interests since 2000 1  - deregulates the industry and ignores repeated warnings of disaster. Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich is arrested for trying to sell Obama’s U.S. Senate seat, extort campaign cash from a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Why Power Is Not a Dirty Word
Who, after all, gets up in the morning pledging to starve children? Yet, each day over 24,000 young children die of hunger and poverty. Who, anywhere, sets out to heat the planet and rid the world of its species? Yet, every day roughly 100 more species are lost forever. Do we simply lack the know-how to reverse these horrors? No. We humans already have proven solutions to everything from climate chaos to poverty. Or is it human nature—underneath are we all just selfish little shoppers, so of course we’re doomed? No, again. In recent decades, a revolution in our understanding of human nature has produced evidence from ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Stock Market (Casino) Capitalism
MACON,GA.- How many more financial crises will it take to persuade state legislatures, governors, and the U.S. House of Representatives to join forces to protect the tax base and Main Street economy in the 50 states from the economic and financial disasters caused by stock market (casino) capitalism? Knowing since the 1930s that stock market (casino) capitalism doesn�t work without massive taxpayer subsidies and special privileges, the two political parties have used spending by the federal government to cover up that this system cannot survive on its own. But the federal government is now bankrupting itself, state governments, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

  Campaign finance reform attracts intense political, academic, and media attention. The debate swirling around the McCain-Feingold legislation in 2001 is evidence of the power of the issue. Despite the intensity of the spotlight, commentators and politicians often overlook an important element of any proposed reform: diversity. This Note explores campaign finance reform from an under-explored angle: the impact proposed reforms would have on minority and female candidates. This Note explores the woefully inadequate diversity of representation in elective office and critiques numerous proposals for change from the ...

"(May – September 1787) Assembly that drafted the Constitution of the United States. All states but Rhode Island sent delegates in response to a call by the Annapolis Convention for a meeting in Philadelphia to amend the Articles of Confederation. The delegates decided to replace the Articles with a document that strengthened the federal government. An important issue was the apportioning of legislative representation.
