On Point: The Value of Awareness Feelings in Combat or Business

By Stephen Cheney

The human body has sensors all continually inputting to the brain.  But those impulses are also competing for the brain's attention. The brain sometimes shuts some inputs off in order to focus on those that it wants. When a friend is talking you may focus on that and exclude hearing a door opening. When a friend is nagging you, you may not register what is said, your mind listening to the remarkably interesting calls of birds far in the distance. When you are communicating with someone while they are observable by you, you register their body language somewhat subconsciously. You don't have to know why or how, just register impressions overall. This subtle sensing feeds information of meaning to the brain and assists you to make judgements that may turn out to be correct even though you may not be able to explain why.

Extremism & EU: The British Conservative Government's New Measures

We would like to extend our most sincere congratulations to David Cameron for his re-election. The British People beat the expectations and sent a clear message: PM Cameron did a fine job tidying Britain up and wish him to not only keep up with the fiscal discipline, but to also deliver on matters related to the European Union – the Left would never be as competent as the Conservative Party.
