Wide-Faced Men: Good Guys or Bad?

first_imgTIME: Think of the stereotypical tough guy: broad-faced, square-jawed, uber-macho. Research even bears out this convention, linking wider, more masculine faces with characteristics like dishonesty, lack of cooperation and perceived lack of warmth.But a new study challenges the notion that wide-faced men are always the bad guys, finding that in certain situations, they’re actually the most self-sacrificing of the bunch.For the study, researchers from the Perception Lab at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland gave 54 male students money to play a game in groups. Each man was given £3 to play with — they could either keep the endowment to themselves, or invest as much as they wished in the group. The participants were told that if the group as a whole invested more than £12, then each member would lose his initial investment, but receive a £5 return. If the group failed to meet the £12 minimum, then each man could lose his investment without any return.Read the whole story: TIMElast_img read more

Titans Uniforms

first_imgguest23 3,353 hawk36 dennisbergan Posted August 4, 2012 Members Got you roasted like evah 1,083 Jezus_Ghoti Share this post Just watched some training camp practice of the Tennessee Titans.Saw many of the players wearing light blue jersey’s and white pants.Startling how great a look that is. Also startling that the Titans have never worn light blue/white pants in their history in Nashville since they became the Titans. Have no clue why not either.The Titans, in my opinion, have the most underutilized uniforms in the league. They have many different options they could (and SHOULD) be using and have settled on basically two. One at home and one on the road. How boring. Kinda like their team.If it were me, I’d wear the light blue jersey’s and white pants for 5 home games. Light blue/light blue for one game. Light blue/navy blue (the current standard home look) for one game. And their navy alternates with light blue pants for one game.On the road, I’d stick with the white jersey’s with light blue pants look for the majority of the time. Use that for 6 road games. Go white jersey/navy pants for one game. And go white jersey/white pants for one game (probably the first road game in the heat of September).Come on Titans…get with the program. You have a great color scheme. But continuing to use your worst combination (light blue jerseys/navy pants) doesn’t make sense. That combo when paired with a white helmet just looks goofy. 1,083 Members Followers 0 Location:detroit 0 0 Doubtful. They switched away from navy to light blue. If anything, it’s the opposite. henburg 0 0 1,083 0 Share on other sites Posted August 4, 2012 Location:San Jose Link to post 1,284 Share on other sites Share this post 1,252 Buc 16,001 Share on other sites Location:Nashville, TN Share this post Link to post Location:Nashville, TN Location:Somewhere on I-90 most likely Share on other sites 1,284 I can think of another solution to the Titans’ uniform issues…just change the colors.***SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT***[Concepts]You’ve been doing that quite a bit lately. Anyways, since the Titans have done a lot of things to remind us that they were once the Oilers, they might as well do one of a couple* things they haven’t done and pair the Light Blue jersey with the White pants. It’s not perfect (helmet vs. pants stripes), but it’s easily the best look that they currently have, being the most color-balanced.Tennessee’s a few tweaks from a long-standing, modern classic look: match the helmet stripe with the pants, one way or another; bring back some red, somewhere; and maybe, just slightly round off numbers or otherwise tweak the computerish font they have now.*The other is to return to being a Light Blue/Red team.

The Titans have worn this style of practice uniforms for a couple of years now, and I always have really liked how it looked as well. I like your idea of utilizing the combinations, although I would replace the dark blue/light blue with dark blue/white, which is the Titans “classic” look. Other than that I think that if the helmet stripes matched the pants stripes, than the Titans would have a pretty decent uniform. These are very good points.

Great look except that the helmet stripe and pant stripe are close but don’t match.

Link to post 0 Meh, I say. The light blues, with the navy shoulders, look sop much better with the navy pants… so long as they don’t use navy socks with it. In fact, white with two navy stripes (similar to the helmet, only not tapering) would be the best choice.I disagree. I think it looks horribly unbalanced with a white helmet.I would like to see the Titans wear white pants with the home jerseys permanently. But really, looking back at old pictures, the original Titans’ set was the best combo. I was excited when they first changed to Columbia at home, but it has never looked right. They should go back to navy over white at home and white over navy on the road. As for the potential white socks, they should have navy-coumbia-navy stripes, just like the white pants (and so should the helmet, for that matter). hawk36 Link to post 3,353 1,227 posts 2,215 Posted August 4, 2012 1,284 This topic is now closed to further replies.

Kerry Washington says playing Olivia Pope on “Scandal” gave her the “courage” to be a mother

first_img“I don’t know if I would have had kids at this point in my life if she didn’t make me feel like anything is possible,” says Washington, who shares two children with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, 3-year-old daughter Isabelle and 1-year-old son Caleb. “There is so much that has happened, a black woman being the lead on a network show, all of that is so important,” she says. “But equally important is that this is a work environment where we have treated each other with a great deal of love and respect and I really want that to be part of our legacy.” ABC/Bob D’Amico(HOLLYWOOD) — With the final episode of ABC’s Scandal less than a month away, series star Kerry Washington is reflecting on the show’s impact on her life. “The thing that’s really fun for me about saying goodbye to a character is they kind of live in you,” Washington, who plays Olivia Pope, on the show tells Entertainment Tonight. “There will be things that Olivia Pope has given me that always stay with me. She’s changed me.” Scandal airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico In addition to providing her with courage, Washington says the show had another purpose during its seven seasons — to offer a legacy for years to come. According to the actress, playing the no-nonsense Washington D.C. fixer on the show has made her believe she “can do anything,”– including taking on motherhood. “I feel like she’s given me a lot of courage. So I’ll keep that courage,” Washington adds. “I’m going to have to say bye to the Prada purses but not goodbye to the courage, and the courage is more important.” Relatedlast_img read more
