Trey Malone is a new assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness at the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station.

A new agricultural economist who works with the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station says marketing in a world of endless options requires producers to know more about consumer demand.

Trey Malone, an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness at the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station, has spent more than a decade researching agricultural marketing issues and now focuses on development technologies that will help producers in regional food systems to compete in a global market.

“Once upon a time there was a farmer who could grow a Red Delicious apple and know someone would buy it for a high enough price, but now consumers have so many different apples to choose from at the grocery store,” Malone said. . “So producers need to know even more about what their customers are demanding in the market.”

As a potential solution, he is developing an index to inform producers and stakeholders of consumer concerns and help them “anticipate issues” such as the surge in toilet paper purchases at the start of the COVID pandemic. He expects the index, which uses surveys to collect data from a nationally representative sample of consumers, to be available to producers this year. The working title is the Food and Agriculture Systems Sentiment Index.

“We are delighted to have Dr. Malone join the faculty here in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness,” said department head John Anderson, who is also director of the Fryar Price Risk Management Center of Excellence for the U of A System Division of Agriculture and Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences.

“Trey is well established as an emerging leader in research and outreach on agricultural and food systems management and value-added agriculture,” Anderson added. “He has a deep understanding of the land-grant mission of relevant stakeholder research, outreach, and education. His diverse interests and skills are a perfect fit for a state like Arkansas, with its agricultural economy. diversity and the needs of the rural community.”

Malone has already begun working with the Institute for Integrative and Innovative Research, also known as I3R, or “I-cubed-R”. The new U of A research initiative is supported by a $194.7 million grant from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation. Malone submits the National Science Foundation’s first proposal for I3R to develop a platform to match regional farms with regional demand. The proposal is directly in line with his keynote address for the Southern Agricultural Economics Association’s 2022 Emerging Scholar Award titled ‘Moving the Conversation From ‘Can We Grow It?’ to ‘MUST WE Cultivate It?'”

Malone also hopes to work with the Center for Arkansas Farms and Food, an experimental station service center, to help specialty crop growers make research-based marketing decisions. Malone’s research will be conducted through the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station, the research arm of the Division of Agriculture. Starting this fall, he will teach agriculture and food marketing and agribusiness entrepreneurship at the U of A.

Prior to joining the Division of Agriculture, Malone was an assistant professor and extension economist in the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics at Michigan State University. He received his PhD in 2017 from Oklahoma State University, where his dissertation used the US beer market to explore the behavioral principles that underlie how modern consumers choose what to eat and drink.

Malone has published dozens of academic articles in peer-reviewed journals, as well as opinion pieces in major media such as USA Today, Fast Company and popular science. He has also been featured on TV news such as CNBC, CNN and the TODAY Show. He is currently co-editor of the peer-reviewed journal Agriculture and Resource Economics Reviewas well as editor-in-chief of International journal of food and agribusiness. His research has won numerous awards, most recently winning the Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association Advisor Award.

He also recently recorded a TEDx talk in Michigan titled “How to Change Your Mind About the Food System,” focusing on how he responded to the COVID pandemic.

“If I had a dime for every time I heard someone claim that COVID-19 proves America’s food system is broken,” Malone said. “I’m not so convinced. We’ve been through one of the craziest global events of the last century, and I think the food system has responded with resilience to this incredible challenge. It’s just that most Americans don’t have never known the empty shelves of grocery stores.”

Malone said the average grocery store in 1975 had about 8,000 unique options. He said the average grocery store leading up to the coronavirus pandemic had more than 45,000 unique options.

“Psychologists often talk about retrospection in pink. We all have this idea that things were ‘better,’ but even at the start of COVID-19 we still had over 8,000 options on the average grocery store shelf” , Malone said. . “Even though you didn’t necessarily like those options, you had more options than your grandparents.”

He said choice overload makes decisions more difficult for consumers and sometimes prevents them from making a decision. As part of its study of the marketing issue, an Oklahoma bar agreed to double the number of beers it offered to see if it increased or decreased beer sales.

“If we increased the number of beers on offer, we might reduce the chances of someone ordering a beer because it would overwhelm the customer and they would just decide not to order one,” Malone said.

However, if they offered quality ratings, some other type of third-party verification, or put a particular beer on the menu, they could eliminate the “choice overload problem.”

Malone has also conducted studies to help players in many agricultural value chains, including dairy, beef, eggs, hops, hemp, and even morels. He says maintaining trust with stakeholders is key, and he sees research and extension closely tied to the land-grant university’s mission to help stakeholders make decisions.

“I can’t publish meaningful articles unless I know the issues and have the ability to collect primary data within trusted partnerships,” Malone said. “As a land-grant institution, we are accountable to stakeholders to maintain that level of trust. I think the Division of Agriculture is on the front line in maintaining those relationships, and faculty on campus have obligation to support this.”

Malone’s family ranch is the Backwards Rocking L Ranch near Laverne, Oklahoma. His wife, Caroline Kraft Malone, is a developmental psychologist from Tulsa and is set to take on a teaching role in the U of A’s Department of Psychological Sciences, as well as a part-time role in communications. of the agricultural experiment station. Previously, she worked as an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Michigan State University.

Wales attacking coach Stephen Jones has dismissed the suggestion that his players must overcome a significant mental barrier when they face the Springboks this weekend.

The question was posed to the former fly-half in light of Welsh Areas’ tribulations in South Africa at URC last season. Of the eight matches played by Welsh sides on South African soil, all ended in defeat, with abject performances culminating in an aggregate score of 351-106.

The lousy scoreline, however, lacks the context that the Welsh internationals were out for the majority of those games. Jones was quick to point out that the national team has fared much better in recent years.

Wales have won four of the last six matches against the Springboks, losing the last two.

“No, not at all,” he refuted. “If you look at the last six games that South Africa and Wales have played, they’ve been incredibly close.

“The vast majority of our squad were here last summer for the Lions tour. They had a lot of test matches against South Africa.

“From our perspective, we are looking forward to the test. We’ve got a wonderful group of players and it’s certainly been a long time since our last game against Italy and we’re chomping at the bit because we’ve got a world-class squad here, looking forward to an intense Test match.

An additional challenge Wales will have to overcome is the crowds. Saturday will be the first time fans will be allowed to watch the Springboks in person since becoming world champions in 2019.

A bustling crowd is expected to descend on the iconic Loftus Versfeld and Jones was adopting a ‘bring it’ mentality, hoping for a sold-out crowd.

He said: “Hopefully it’s sold out and that’s what you’re playing the game for.

” That would be great. That would be absolutely awesome. From our perspective, we are excited about the challenge ahead of us.

“As a player growing up, to play in South Africa in an incredible venue, which will be sold out, you have to be excited because you know it’s going to be a real challenge, an intense game.

“But that’s what you play the game for, to experience these environments, so it’s going to be very special for us.”

Why We May Misperceive Being Awake or Asleep http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/why-we-may-misperceive-being-awake-or-asleep/ Sat, 25 Jun 2022 17:13:16 +0000 http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/why-we-may-misperceive-being-awake-or-asleep/ What explains the fact of feeling deeply asleep?

What explains the fact of feeling deeply asleep?

Sleep researchers and clinicians often compare how a person subjectively reports their sleep to objective sleep recordings in a lab or clinic, and it’s not uncommon to find that people misjudge their sleep. , including their sleep duration or subjective quality. or the depth of their sleep.

In sleep clinics, patients with insomnia often report feeling like they hardly ever sleep, but after taking a standard polysomnography test, they appear to have a relatively normal sleep pattern. So what makes someone subjectively feel sound asleep?

In a recent experiment, researchers invited 20 good sleepers and 10 poor sleepers to the lab for an overnight study and used high-density EEG (256 electrodes on the scalp) to objectively record their sleep. The experimenters woke the subjects repeatedly during the night and asked them if they felt awake or asleep, and if they felt sleepy, how deeply asleep they felt, and if they remembered a dream experience.

Awakenings were performed in different stages of sleep, including stage 2 NREM (non-rapid eye movement), slow-wave sleep, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep throughout the night. Each time you woke up, the first question asked was, “What was the last thing that crossed your mind before the alarm went off?” then, “Were you awake or asleep?” If the subject felt sleepy, they were asked to rate their depth of sleep between 1 (shallow) and 5 (deep).

Surprisingly enough, the researchers found that even among good sleepers, in 10% of awakenings, the subjects felt like they had been awake even though the EEG showed that they were completely asleep. This is called sleep misperception: when you mistakenly perceive your sleep state as being awake. Poor sleepers had about three times as many instances of poor sleep perception.

The experimenters also showed that this state of “feeling awake while sleeping” never really occurred during REM sleep in healthy subjects, the phase of sleep during which we have more vivid dreams.

In patients, if it sometimes occurred in REM, it was even more frequent in NREM sleep. Additionally, this “feeling awake while sleeping” seemed to occur more frequently earlier in the night, which was surprising as this is actually the time period when it objectively appears that we are in our deepest sleep, with slow waves occurring throughout the brain.

Another interesting point: the researchers found that the subjects felt awake more often if they were not dream. On the contrary, when the subjects dreamed, they felt more deeply asleep; again, this is more likely to occur during REM sleep, which is objectively a lighter phase of sleep more similar to wakefulness.

It seems that the content of the sleep experience is also important. Sometimes subjects reported just having thought-type experiences before the alarm, and often these thoughts were related to trying to fall asleep, feeling like they were unable to sleep, and other cognitions. similar.

These thoughts were often reported after being awakened from deep slow wave sleep early in the night. It is unclear whether these thoughts occur during deep sleep, or perhaps they were the last thoughts the subject had before falling asleep, but in both cases upon awakening the subjects had the perception mistaken that they were still thinking and struggling to fall asleep. .

On the other hand, more perceptual dream experiences were associated with feeling deeply asleep, and these occurred more often during REM sleep. In fact, subjective depth of sleep was directly correlated with dreams, such that more perceptive and vivid dreams were associated with feeling deeper sleep.

So, to sum up, feeling awake while sleeping is not that uncommon even in good sleepers, and feeling awake while sleeping is subjectively very different from feeling asleep. Feeling deeply asleep appears to be more correlated with REM sleep and dreaming experience, and unexpectedly was less common in early night deep sleep, which is actually associated with less vivid dreams and more sleep. mental life experiences (often about trying to sleep) – and therefore associated with a feeling of shallower sleep.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – It was supposed to be a “recovery day”.

After working 41 hours in three days caring for COVID patients, Katie Slayton had the day off on September 22, 2021.

A single mother to a five-year-old son, the Williamson County nurse had dropped him off at daycare that night so she could run to the mall.

Hours later, she picked it up and prepared to pull out of the parking spot when she saw police lights directly behind her.

What happened next would have devastating consequences: charges of impaired driving and criminal child neglect, a separation from her son for nine weeks, and an agonizing six months of waiting for blood test results.

A test that would eventually show that she was sober all the time.

“(Franklin Police) traumatized my son; they traumatized me. They drove a nurse, with a clean 3-state record, straight to Franklin, Tennessee,” Slayton said.

The arrest

The call to police came from a daycare worker worried that Slayton seemed ‘off’.

In police body camera footage, the employee describes Slayton as “turning around here, scratching her head, talking to herself.”

But Slayton was unaware of what the daycare worker had claimed; all she knew was that the police had asked her to get out of the car and questioned her sobriety.

“When they asked you – are you inebriated, are you drunk – are you surprised they asked you at this point?” asked WSMV4 investigation.

“Completely surprised. It never occurred to me that anyone thought I was impaired,” Slayton said.

In the footage, Slayton agrees to take a field sobriety test, at one point insisting she hasn’t had a drink.

An officer can be heard observing, “I don’t smell any alcohol.”

The police report shows Slayton acknowledging that she takes Prozac and Adderall for ADHD.

The video also shows Slayton’s five-year-old son running down the sidewalk, ignoring a police officer’s calm pleas to stop running.

When the boy’s laughter grows loud, the officer interrogating Slayton gestures to another officer, asking, “Can you…?”

The second officer eventually picks up the boy to take him back to daycare, to which he responds with a “No!”

Slayton then performs the field sobriety test, not standing firmly on one foot and appearing to wobble as he walks with one foot in front of the other.

“I saw the videos. You look shaky,” WSMV4 Investigates asked.

“Yeah,” Slayton said.

“You can understand why the officers may have had a concern,” WSMV4 Investigates asked.

“I think – basically – it’s either fight or flight. It’s my maternal instinct. They were leaving,” Slayton said. at that point, I started shaking.”

The police report writes that Slayton “had slurred speech and his mannerisms appeared to be slowed down.”

Body camera footage shows her astonishment when she is finally arrested.

“You are under arrest for impaired driving,” the officer said.

“What?” Slayton asked.

“Yes, ma’am,” said the officer,

The officer then asks Slayton if she has any family or a babysitter who can pick up her son. Otherwise, his son will be taken into custody.

“If you can’t find someone or a friend to pick him up, we have to call DCS and they’ll pick him up,” an officer told him.

“Oh my God, no,” Slayton replies.

Slayton tells them she has no family in Tennessee and her phone is dead, so she can’t contact a babysitter.

“There was nothing I could do at that time. I felt completely helpless,” Slayton said.

Her son would ultimately remain in state custody for nine weeks while she waited for his blood alcohol level, which showed she was not intoxicated.

A psychologist’s examination deemed her fit to resume custody.

But the test showing what else was in his body would then take much longer: six months.

When he finally became available, it showed, once again, that she was not inebriated.

The charges were dropped.

“Just seeing myself being accused of this horrified me,” Slayton said.

But the question persisted: how could someone, completely sober, fail a field sobriety test?

Lawyers warn against driving ‘under the influence of ADHD’

The blood test revealed what Slayton acknowledged, that she was positive for amphetamine due to her ADHD medications.

“She tested positive for her prescribed medication. But they were well within therapeutic levels,” said Ben Powers, Slayton’s attorney.

Since untreated ADD/ADHD can make it difficult to follow instructions, attorneys across the country have raised the possibility that a person could be wrongfully arrested for impaired driving if they exhibit ADHD behaviors.

A Memphis law firm posted an article on its website entitled “How can ADHD/ADD be confused with a DUI/DWI?”

Lawyer Charles Rowland’s website in Dayton, Ohio has a post-read, “Driving Under the Influence of ADD.”

The message states that officers receive “…no special training is given to look for signs of ADD/ADHD.”

“Police are trained to look for central nervous system stimulants – which are almost identical to the type of symptoms someone with ADHD has,” Rowland told WSMV4 Investigates.

ADHD experts will point out that medications can wear off each day and become less effective later in the day if taken early in the morning.

In the body camera footage, an officer asks Slayton when she took her medication.

“Are you sure you took your medicine this morning?” You didn’t take it then? asked the officer.

“Yes!” Slayton said.

Slayton later told WSMV4 Investigates that she remembered taking the drug later that morning.

Slayton maintains that she did so poorly on the field sobriety test because she was exhausted from long shifts that week and knew officers were separating her from her son while she was taking the test.

WSM4 Investigates repeatedly called and emailed Franklin police to request an interview, but a spokesperson for Chief Deborah Faulkner denied our request, citing potential litigation, sending a statement that reads in part: “The Williamson County magistrate found probable cause to support the charges and warrants were obtained.”

Slayton said she was not prosecuting but instead requested that her arrest be assessed.

Slayton said he was told no discrepancies were found in the way the arrest was made.

She said she also emailed Chief Faulkner asking for an apology, but never received it.

Due to the arrest and the fallout, Slayton said she was leaving the state.

Stating that international organizations should not abuse their power, Mohammad Eslami, in an interview with the Tasnim news agency, said that Iran has 3% of the world’s nuclear capacity, but more than 25% of inspections were made in Iran.

Referring to the propaganda made against Iran’s nuclear program by some countries, he added that these actions are in line with the policy of psychological and political pressure, as well as maximum pressure against the Iranian nation.

He also pointed to the anti-Iran draft resolution submitted by the United States and E3 to the IAEA Board of Governors, saying that the submission of the draft resolution against the Iranian nuclear affair to the Board of Governors was the last test of enemies. “We answered them in a completely legal way, and if they want to respect the treaty, everything that is agreed there cannot be implemented either as one word more or as one word less.”

Following the publication of a recent report by Rafael Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, as well as efforts by three European countries and the United States to draft an anti-Iran resolution in IAEA Board of Governors, officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran have explicitly stated that Iran will respond quickly and effectively to these actions, and the countries that are pushing for the adoption of an anti-Iranian resolution by the United Nations nuclear watchdog will be responsible for all consequences.

Grossi sparked controversy after visiting Israel and meeting with regime leaders late last month.

The IAEA received documents provided by Israel on Iran’s nuclear program, which Tehran rejected as fake and fabricated by MKO terrorists.

Following this visit, the IAEA Board of Governors passed a resolution accusing Iran of not cooperating with the agency, which took the Islamic Republic by surprise.

Iran’s response was quick and decisive, saying it had “taken practical countermeasures, including installing advanced centrifuges and disabling cameras operating outside the safeguards agreement.”

Could cannabis use make you a better person? This is the suggestion of a new study published in the magazine Scientific reports, which found that people who had recently used cannabis displayed more “prosocial behaviors” – such as showing empathy, helping others and engaging in community service – than people who had not used it. . Read on to learn more and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these Sure signs you’ve already had COVID.

“Most investigations of the effects of cannabis use have focused either on the negative consequences of cannabis addiction or on the physical health effects of cannabis use,” said the lead author of the report. study, Jacob Miguel Vigil, professor of psychology at the University of New Mexico. “Almost no formal scientific attention has been devoted to understanding other psychological and behavioral effects of consuming the plant, despite its being so widely used throughout human history.”

In the study, researchers asked subjects to complete various psychological tests encompassing traits such as empathy, trust, and prosocial behaviors. They also tested the participants’ urine for the presence of THC, the active ingredient in cannabis.

Scientists have found that cannabis use can make people less self-centered and more focused on helping others and protecting them. Male cannabis users were more agreeable than non-users.

“Our results are … consistent with research showing that acute THC intoxication is generally associated with attenuated aggression and positively related to subjective feelings of openness, peace, joy, wonder, spirituality and a heightened sense of connection to the universe,” the study authors wrote. They noted that previous research estimated that frequent cannabis use could increase an individual’s sociability by 68.4%, deep thinking by 31.4%, happiness by 16.1%, feeling good or pleasant by 20.9%, the insight of others by 11.9% and the insight of oneself or oneself. personal growth of 8.7%.

The researchers also found that personality differences between cannabis users and non-users were associated with the time elapsed since cannabis use, suggesting that the effects are temporary. “The transience of effects shows that cannabis triggers changes in behavior and perception rather than that cannabis users and non-users differ fundamentally in their basic approaches to social interactions,” said Sarah Stith, co-author of the study of the economics department of UNM.

The study noted that cannabis has often been shown to have physical medicinal benefits, but research into its potential social and psychological benefits is in its infancy. “Prosociality is essential to the overall cohesion and vitality of society, and therefore the effects of cannabis on our interpersonal interactions could possibly prove to be even more important to the well-being of society than its medicinal effects” , said study co-author Tiphanie Chanel of UNM’s psychology department. .

Posted: Date Posted – 11:00 PM, Mon – 13 Jun 22

The strategy typically used for academic exams might not work for competitive exams, Vepa Academy director Dr. CS Vepa said on Monday.
Explaining in more detail, Vepa said that the evaluators of academic exam answer sheets would think in favor of the students, but the competition answer sheets would be critically evaluated to check whether or not the candidate has in-depth knowledge on the subject. . Therefore, academic exams such as the prep plan would not be suitable for TSPSC Group I exams.

He then explained the 50-5-5 formula, which would be useful for contestants. In the formula, one hour should be considered as a unit in which 50 minutes should be devoted to study, five minutes to the visualization of the subject studied and five minutes to physical movement or relief.

He further mentioned that aspirants can overcome the problem of “more content to master in less time,” with a preparation plan of dividing the curriculum into units. A single subject should not be studied by a candidate throughout the day, which would cause the candidate to lose interest. He suggested that two or three subjects should be selected to study one day, for change. To memorize the content, candidates must create an image of the subject studied in their minds and link the images of the newly studied subjects with them to prepare a story-like image.

Besides, Vepa also suggested that candidates should be more alert while taking the exam and should have the talent to convert their knowledge on the subject into notes. “According to scientists, a person can forget 80% of the content within the first 24 hours. Systematic revision is needed to overcome this problem. In the first 24 hours, the candidate must revise the content studied at least five times. This may be followed by a review of the subject twice a day the following week and at least once a day the following week.

Giving suggestions on tricks to have a longer memory, Vepa taught the technique of flash cards to seekers which can be used to learn vocabulary and remember years of incidents, economy characters and people from the world. ‘story. He also suggested candidates keep a separate notebook for each subject. Also, to instill self-confidence in the aspirants, Vepa suggested that they keep a success journal to record activities related to their goal as a reminder.

Explaining about four pillars of competitions, he said skills would have 30% share, physical stamina would have 10% share, knowledge would have 30% share and psychology would have 10% share in the success of any contestant . in all competitions.

EXAM: Sloane Crosley’s second novel, an unromantic comedy satirizing start-up culture, modern dating, urban aesthetes and other millennial woes, is dedicated to “men”. With his gift for precision, the author clarifies: well, “some of the men”.

Crosley’s first two books, I Was Told There’d Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number, were collections of essays reminiscent of Nora Ephron, filled with tender scenes surrounded by acerbic jokes, the emotional tenor of her carefully calibrated humor , almost as well if it is informed by an algorithm. Her debut novel, The Clasp, centered on similar themes, directed by a sophisticated cast of 20 people.

In Cult Classic, Crosley turns his satirical gaze to love in a time of search options, data trails, Instagram-imposed memories, an ever-present past. Its heroine, Lola, an inexhaustibly ironic copywriter, is engaged to Boots, a glassblower who went to Brown and who, Lola observes more than once, is 6ft 3in tall – as if his physical presence always registers her. like a list of facts, a walking Hinge profile.

Those winning qualities aside, Boots doesn’t get Lola’s full attention. She is preoccupied with a box full of letters from her exes, which she often thinks about; it doesn’t help that their personal sites and semi-professional portraits, their grids populated with newborn girls, their more than lukewarm reviews of overly long second novels are just a few keystrokes away.

* Proof that Kelly Ripa’s daughter, Lola, is just like any other 20-year-old girl on her birthday
* Lola’s Grave Mistake: A very original and quirky show
* Pet of the Day: A Boy’s Best Friend

Then, surreal, the all-too-present past presents itself to Lola IRL; over the course of a few days, she meets a series of her exes, each time struggling to experience something like closure.

Crosley’s fast-paced wit and plot lends itself better to some of Cult Classic’s later scenes, which take place in a marble-laden boot space inside an abandoned synagogue, with an espresso, but mostly no of cold pressed juice. Here, we learn that Lola’s ex-dating was not accidental but part of a scheme hatched by her former partner in a little flirtation. The two worked together at a now-folded magazine, Modern Psychology, which inspired him to start a business with Lola as his unwitting test subject. Could immersion therapy cure nostalgia and indecisiveness in love? Hard to say.

The cult quality of companies offering camaraderie instead of a living wage is an ideal subject for Crosley, who confuses the setup but warmly regards those who fall for it. After the decline of modern psychology, Lola herself is caught in an unsatisfactory position on an artistic site, “covering culture instead of creating it”.

Inevitably, his work affects his personal life. Lola laments that she has become a superficial consumer, a “people hoarder”, “detailing… faults as if I had none”. In a moving moment of sincerity, she observes, “perhaps the Internet has spoiled us more than we suspected and we already suspected a lot”.

Although a longer-lasting love is presented as an alternative to internet glamor, Crosley doesn’t seem to commit to that deepening of character and connection by the end. Instead, the book is a fun mirror on a set of alienated townsfolk, an endless source of clean-cut catches.

Cult Classic by Sloane Crosley (MCD) is available from August 2.

A recent national poll showed that 71% of adults oppose animal testing, and in another poll respondents said they would stop buying their favorite skincare and makeup products if it involved any form of animal testing. These views highlight the importance of turning your massage practice into a cruelty-free space.

The problems of animal testing

Carbon dioxide chambers, electro-ejaculation devices, guillotines, restraint chains, shock plates, dissection (without anesthesia) and lethal dose testing are not the first practices that come to our minds. mind when we think of body care.1. The reality is that these torture devices—yes, that’s how they should be defined—are strongly tied to the manufacturing practices of all kinds of cosmetic products.

PETA claims that “every year more than 110 million animals, including mice, frogs, dogs, rabbits, monkeys, fish and birds, are killed in American laboratories.” 2. For the sake of beauty, we are willing to traumatize and kill innocent, helpless creatures.

Even though the FDA advocates the development and implementation of alternative tests, it also justifies the use of animal testing methods if and whenever companies deem it necessary in order to ensure that ingredients and final cosmetic formulations are safe for humans.3.

The emphasis is on making these methods as “ethical and humane” as possible by obtaining the maximum amount of applicable scientific data with a minimum of animal sacrifice.3.

The question remains how to reduce the pain and damage that personal care companies inflict on living beings. Judging by the graphic evidence that has bombarded all media, this feat seems next to impossible.

A much different story is playing out internationally, with the European Union leading the way in the cruelty-free movement in 2013. Today, 41 countries, including Australia, India, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey4, followed suit and completely banned or limited animal testing for cosmetic purposes. It’s hard to believe the United States is so far behind in this area given the incredible testing innovation available across the country.

Although consumers are not legislators, we have the power to reverse this unfortunate situation. In an effort to achieve this goal, we will dedicate this article to explaining what truly cruelty-free means and why it is essential that cruelty-free products are part of every massage therapist’s business plan.

Cruelty-free: the definition

Cruelty free means that the ingredients or products in question have not been tested on animals. It’s so simple5. What is not simple is the process to achieve such status. Many companies have designed their own cruelty-free logos, which usually include a rabbit, in an attempt to convince customers that no animals were harmed in the manufacturing process of their products.

This couldn’t be further from the truth, as no one should ever fall prey to claims that cannot be backed up by a third-party assessment. These logos are very misleading and do not guarantee anything except to make money from uninformed consumers.

While there are a few cruelty-free accredited logos on the market, the one you should look for in every cosmetic packaging is the Leaping Bunny Standard. This logo is regulated by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) in the United States and Canada, and Cruelty Free International (abroad). Because these logos are standardized, they require brands to engage in a rigorous supplier vetting system to certify that their supply chain management is free from animal testing.6:

• Submit to independent audits.

• Recommit to the program each year.

• Suppliers must submit documentation proving compliance with the standard.

• The final product must never be tested on animals.

• Companies will not be allowed to sell their products in markets that require animal testing.

• Ingredients of animal origin are allowed as long as their extraction/manufacture does not involve any form of cruelty, such as beeswax.

• Leaping Bunny says brands owned by a parent company that tests on animals can be certified, but they “must promise to operate as self-contained subsidiaries with their own supply chains and must continue to meet Leaping Bunny Standard requirements in order to remain on our list.”

Interestingly, there is no legal definition of the term “cruelty-free”,seven but relying on a standard like Leaping Bunny guarantees the cruelty-free status of an ingredient or product6.

Why is it crucial to be cruelty-free?

The most compelling evidence against animal testing comes from the fact that 95% of drugs that are shown to be safe and effective in animal testing provide no human benefit or cause serious harm.8. Of the remaining 5%, half must be relabeled due to side effects that could not be predicted in animal testing.

This shows that at some point ingredients or end products will need to be tested on human subjects8Additionally, modern science has enabled humans to develop non-animal testing methods such as computer modeling, in vitro testing, human-patient stimulators, and research with human volunteers that are more accurate, affordable, and rapid.9.

Those focused on sales should know that cruelty-free products increase both loyalty and purchase intent; this phenomenon is known as ethical consumptionten.

The reason for such behavior is that customers believe they are making a socially responsible purchase.ten. In 2021, the demand for cruelty-free cosmetics has reached the staggering number of $5.45 billion and should touch the $9.9 billion by 203111.

All of this data is consistent with a national poll two years ago in which 71% of adults oppose animal testing.12. In another survey, respondents claimed they would stop buying their favorite skin care and makeup products if they involved any form of animal testing. 13. Customers’ position on this issue is crystal clear and highlights the importance of making your massage practice a cruelty-free space.

Takeaway meals

There is no justification for animal testing in the beauty care industry. There is no real benefit that we as humans can derive from such a practice, and it is impossible not to exercise some form of torture while performing the various forms of animal experimentation.

More importantly, animals have no way of consenting to it. We have absolutely no right to make that decision for them either. All species have an equally important role to fulfill in this world. The idea advanced by the theory of speciesism that other living beings are inferior to man – and therefore “in his service” – is unethical.

There is some light at the end of the tunnel, however, as seven states: California, Nevada, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Hawaii, Maine and New Jersey14– followed in the footsteps of the EU, as well as other countries, and recently banned animal testing in almost all cosmetics14.

Your mission as a massage therapist is to use only certified cruelty-free body care products in your services and to demand that companies that still rely on animal testing change their policies. These actions will benefit the planet and your business, and improve your reputation and as a healthcare professional.

Sleep Position Personality Test: Psychologists and sleep experts around the world have conducted several studies to establish the link between our sleeping positions and our personality. Our subconscious is the powerhouse that influences our functioning throughout the day, the way we walk, the coffee we order, our sleep, etc. sleeping position. However, many of Dunkell’s pioneering works on the link between sleeping positions and personality traits. Sleep researcher Samuel Dunkell writes in his book Sleep Positions, “The way we sleep is the way we live”.

Sleep science has helped prove that sleep reveals your personality traits which can be categorized as neuroticism, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and openness. The European Journal of Personality says the quality of sleep you get this week will likely influence your personality five years from now.

Let us find out what your sleeping position reveals about your personality.

What does your sleeping position say about you?

Ready? Read below to find out what your sleeping positions say about you.

Sleeping position: On your back

Personality test: Sleeping on your back

If you sleep on your back, then your sleeping personality indicates that you enjoy being the center of attention. You are an optimistic person who would enjoy the company of like-minded people. You are usually found to have a strong and bold presence in a room full of people. You don’t engage in petty talk or things that don’t meet your standards or are unsupportive of you. You have very high expectations of yourself and others.

People will probably hear the truth from you rather than a sugar coated lie. You work extremely meticulously and with perseverance to achieve your goals. You live life in a structured way with a success-oriented mindset. You greatly value your “me time” while lying in bed and watching your plans come true.

An independent person can adopt the royal position of sleeping on their back. People who sleep flat on their backs show royal inclinations such as a ‘queen’ or ‘king’ of day and night. They exude self-confidence, acceptance of the world and freedom. They appear to be open-minded and in search of experiences or sensations compared to other sleeping styles.

According to sleep researcher Chris Idzikowsk, sleeping on your back is categorized into soldier position and starfish position.

If we sleep in the position of a soldier with straight legs and arms, they are usually reserved and quiet but have high standards.

If we sleep in starfish position with outstretched arms and legs, they are good listeners who enjoy friendships and do not prefer to be the center of attention.

Sleeping position: Sideways

Personality test: side sleeping

If you sleep on your side, then your sleeping personality indicates that you are a calm, reliable, easy-going, active, go-getter, and social person. You are always impatient. You don’t regret the past. You are not afraid of the future. You are very adaptable, no matter the changes or the situation. You always look for the silver lining in everything. You are very aware of yourself, your good and bad aspects, so it is not easy to offend you. You always wear a smile on your face even during hardships.

Side sleepers with outstretched arms out are however suspicious of others. They are not very open to the opinions of others. They tend to stick to their own decisions and thoughts.

People who sleep on their side with a hugged pillow or stuck between their legs turn out to be extremely helpful individuals who value relationships more than other aspects of life.

People who sleep on their side in the log position with their legs and arms extended are gullible and open to life experiences, according to sleep researcher Chris Idzikowsk in his studies.

Sleep position: fetal

Personality test: sleeping in the fetal position

If you sleep in the fetal position, then your sleeping personality says that you seek protection, that you crave to be understood and cared for by others. The fetal sleeping position is similar to curling up like a baby. Sleeping in the fetal position helps you disconnect from the problems of the world. You are a reserved person who does not open up easily. You find it difficult to trust people.

If you sleep in the fetal position, they are more comfortable with family members or people who have played a major role in their upbringing. They are shy, sensitive, innocent and forgiving with a clear conscience. They like to do things that don’t require too many people around them. They are mainly found in painting, drawing, writing, dancing, etc., where they can find ways to express themselves.

The fetal sleeping position was first theorized by sleep researcher Samuel Dunkell in the 1970s. He observed that people who sleep in the fetal position are more emotional and anxious. They are usually tense and closed to enjoy life on the move. In studies, people who slept in the full fetal position expressed feelings of abandonment in their waking lives. Sleep researcher Chris Idzikowsk has also observed that people who sleep in the fetal position tend to be shy around new people or new settings, but with the right company they can relax quickly.

Sleeping position: On the stomach

Personality test: Sleeping on your stomach

If you sleep on your stomach, then your sleeping personality says that you are a willful, risk-taking, adventurous, high-spirited, problem-solving individual. You are effective at leading or offering advice to others. You strongly prefer to sleep for a full 8 hours or more to stay energized and recharged.

You are a gregarious person who sometimes comes across as cold or rude. You always avoid confrontation. You will try to find the happy medium in all the extremes. You are a social butterfly and like to be cherished. You have a warm, friendly vibe when you’re at your best. However, dealing with criticism is not your best trait because you are your worst self-critic, so hearing it from others makes you uncomfortable.

According to sleep researcher Dunkell, people who sleep on their stomachs tend to be compulsive, impulsive, anxious and rigid. They are seen to lack confidence or inhibit insecurities about them. Studies have shown that if someone sleeps on their stomach, they are more likely to work in management, banking, or accounting.

If you sleep on your stomach, hands on or around the pillow, head turned to one side (left or right), then this stomach sleeping position can be classified as a free fall position. According to sleep researcher Chris Idzikowsk, Freefall sleepers have proven to be social butterflies, but can appear to be just as brash, especially when criticized or having extremities. This is related to a lack of confidence or insecurities in themselves.

Did you enjoy discovering your sleeping personality types?

It should be noted that no one sleeps in the same position throughout their life. As we evolve throughout our lives, our subconscious acquires new traits or sheds old habits. We grow as individuals, we learn new things about ourselves and we change mentalities. Therefore, one may also find themselves sleeping in a mixture of two or more sleeping positions. They could reflect that you embody traits of different sleeping personality types. Stay tuned for more such personality tests.
