The science of puppy dog eyes: Dogs’ facial expressions depend on human attention

Everyone with a functioning brain cell or two who has been around dogs knows that these lovable creatures are constantly trying to communicate with us.

Now we can cite scientific evidence to support what we knew.

Excerpt from Nature

Every dog owner is familiar with the ‘puppy dog eyes’ expression. As the inner brow lifts, the eyes get bigger and bigger … It’s tempting to interpret this as a plea from a sad dog for a scrap of the family dinner. Now, a small study provides support for the idea that dogs do indeed produce facial expressions to communicate with people — although perhaps just to engage us, rather than to manipulate us.

The dogs in the study produced more than twice as many facial expressions (‘puppy dog eyes’ was one of the most common) when a researcher was facing them than when she was turned away. But it didn’t seem to matter whether she also held food. Earlier studies have shown that seeing food is more exciting to a dog than is social contact with a silent person, so something other than the dogs’ emotional state must have been responsible for the effect.

“Dogs make their eyes more attractive to us while we are watching, not just when we are in the vicinity or in response to food,” says Brian Hare, a cognitive neuroscientist and co-director of the Duke Canine Cognition Center at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. “This is fantastic work.”

The study, published on 19 October in Scientific Reports1, adds to a growing body of work that shows how sensitive dogs are to human attention. It also provides the first evidence in a non-primate species that facial expressions can be used actively to communicate, says psychologist Juliane Kaminski at the Dog Cognition Centre at the University of Portsmouth, UK, who led the research. Researchers had previously assumed that such expressions are an involuntary reflection of an animal’s emotional state.

The rest of the article goes on to explain how the study was conducted.

Dogs are trying. Now, if only science could teach humans how to understand all the things that our dogs are saying to us.

Pigging: Shameful New Dating Game Played by Men on Women

SOPHIE STEVENSON. ALLEGED VICTIM OF CRUEL PRANK.

A vile new dating game played by men upon women is in the news today.

We need to start by acknowledging that “pigging” may not really exist. The stories told by alleged victims may be stories told by crazy women. Or, if pigging exists, then it may not be common.

However, if we believe that pigging is real, then let’s get this straight: Men who practice pigging are enemies of our people.

Our people need to have men and women get together to form families and have babies. Anything that causes distrust between the sexes is disgraceful.

So what is pigging? Read on for an explanation.

Excerpt from The Telegraph

It is one thing being rejected or ignored by your holiday romance. It is another thing entirely to fly out to see him in Amsterdam, after weeks of messaging, only to be stood up in the airport with nothing but a text saying the entire affair was a cruel joke and calling you a ‘fat ugly pig.’

But this horrific scenario is exactly what 24-year-old Sophie Stevenson says happened to her after she met Dutchman Jesse Mateman, 21, on holiday in Barcelona. She claims the pair slept together, had a “proper romance” and then spoke regularly when she was back home in Stoke. A month later Mateman convinced her to fly out to visit him in Amsterdam for the weekend.

“We were talking up until I got on the plane,” Stevenson told the Mail. “But when I arrived, he wasn’t there to pick me up. I called him a bunch of times, and he didn’t answer. I waited at the airport for two hours and I hadn’t heard anything, I was really starting to panic about being abandoned.”

Six hours later, she says he messaged her saying ‘you were pigged, it was all a joke.’

‘Pulling a pig’ is a vile game that sees a man try to woo a woman they deem ‘fat and ugly’, solely because he and his deplorable friends think it is ‘funny’.

According to Urban Dictionary, the “winner” is the guy who attracts the “ugliest” one, and the awful phenomenon seems to have been around since 2014, when Big Brother contestant Josie Cunningham tried to launch a dating site called ‘Pull the Pig’, aimed at ‘average-looking women’ (seemingly, it is currently inactive).

It’s part of a wider culture that increasingly relies on trickery, mocking and nastiness in dating. Recent terms like ‘benching’ refer to men keeping a woman they don’t feel passionately about ‘on the sidelines’ – just in case. While ‘kittenfishing’ and ‘catfishing’ mean lying on your social media profile to trick someone into dating you.

A particularly appalling example is ‘chubby chasing’ – where men seek larger women ‘as a laugh’ to impress/shock/win a bet. It is heartless, sickening and, as Stevenson simply said, ‘cruel.’

Mateman has denied the claims, after facing a backlash, insisting he never had a holiday romance with Stevenson and that any texts between them are invented. “That is just fantasist rubbish and it is ruining my life,” he said.

Western civilization is in an existential crisis, and if this report is true, then our young males are foolishly making it worse. You really have to ask if we’ve raised a generation of sociopaths.

Any guys who pull this stuff on women should not only be shunned by women, but also by other men. They make it harder for decent guys to find women to date.

Prince Harry and Mulatto Meghan Markle ‘to announce their ENGAGEMENT next month’

There’s almost always a black sheep in a family and the Royal Family is no exception.

Does Harry really have jungle fever or is that a maneuver by the Royals to build support for the monarchy by bringing in a house Negro who might also be acceptable to British white people?

Harry is either a black sheep bringing disgrace to the royal lineage or he’s part of a covert plan signed off on by the (((globalists.)))

His mulatto girlfriend probably can’t wait to be fitted with a crown in hopes of one day being Queen, should William and Kate be unable to assume the throne.

Express.co.uk

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle are set to announce their engagement next month for two reasons, a royal insider has revealed.

The source claims that if the ginger royal has already got on one knee for the Suits star, the couple will announce their engagement in November.

The source said: “This would be the month for two reasons.

“Firstly because it will be a month before Christmas, so they are hoping the hype would have calmed down.”

The insider also told the Daily Star: “But secondly, Harry’s brother William announced his engagement to Kate in the same month in 2010.”

The date also seems set in stone as the 36-year-old is set to wrap up the filming of the seventh season of the hit-US legal drama.

After finishing up her final scenes on the show, the actress is reportedly set to move to London to live with Prince Harry.

With the 70th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip on November 20, the smitten couple seems set to manoeuvre their impending announcement around the big event.

The source stated: “The Platinum anniversary is on the 20th, so it could be before or after that date.

“Nothing is in concrete yet.”

This news comes shortly after it was revealed that the royal’s girlfriend could quit Suits to live with Prince Harry in London.

Insiders have claimed that if the couple are to live together, the 36-year-old actress will have to ship her bags to the UK.

A source told the Sun: “Meghan loved playing Rachel and feels she owes so much to Suits.

“But Harry can’t move to Toronto, so she’ll have to move eventually if they want to be together.

“Her decision to give up the biggest role of her career would mean a lot.”

Rumours of the blooming relationship between the Suits star and Prince Harry ripened after the smitten couple struggled to keep their hands off each other at the recent Invictus Games in Toronto.

Insiders recently revealed that the Royal and Miss Markle are “as good as engaged” and have discussed their marriage plans openly with family and friends.

An insider said: “While Meghan may not be wearing a ring or a formal engagement announced, it’s fair to say they’re as good as engaged now.

If the marriage of a half-Negro commoner to a ginger Royal comes to pass, will it succeed in broadening the appeal of the royals to the nonwhite immigrants?

It may make them realize that there’s nothing special about the monarchy. It might be fun for the rest of us to witness the ghetto as it comes to Buckingham Palace.

The Royal chefs will need to make sure the pantry is stocked with KFC and watermelon if this marriage is to succeed.

One more thing. Is it just me or does she have a tranny look about her?

Fired L’Oreal Negroid Tranny Munroe Bergdorf is Back in New BBC Video Hating on White People Again

To keep your lunch, breakfast, or dinner down and not on your computer keyboard, you might avoid watching either of the videos embedded in this post. The mulatto tranny here isn’t fooling anyone, but is disgusting to see and listen to.

I listened because I do it for you, the people.

Breitbart

The BBC has produced and aired a “take” by trans model Munroe Bergdorf, in which white people are excoriated as inherently racist and “the most violent and oppressive force of nature on earth”.

Bergdorf, who was previously given a platform by the BBC when cosmetics firm L’Oreal sacked them for similar racist comments, was speaking on the October 12th edition of the BBC This Week current affairs programme.

“What kind of country is modern Britain? No doubt it’s a country that likes to think of itself as inclusive, but that depends on where you’re standing,” Bergdorf complained.

“For me, as a transgender mixed race person, we live in a deeply racist society.”

“Why should we expect anything else from a country that’s built its success on the enslavement of non-white people?” Bergdorf alleged.

“It’s that continuous cycle of racism that explains where we are now. Why does the UK acknowledge the sacrifice of people killed in wars, but not the spilt blood of black people?”

In fact, there are many British memorials commemorating the victims of the slave trade and celebrating its abolition. The oldest, according to Historic England, is the Anti-Slavery Arch in Stroud, Gloucestershire, erected in 1834 by Henry Wyatt to celebrate the passing of the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833.

The most recent appears to have been a memorial erected in June this year to commemorate Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton, a parliamentarian who campaigned tirelessly against slavery.

Alt-Right picks up on Bergdorf’s obsession with feelings over facts.

Bergdorf himself has a fascinating passive-aggressive debating style worth mentioning, which I’d like to call “the hair-trigger roundhouse bitch”. In this unique style of communication favored by feminists and SJWs, one treats all questions and offers of discussion as deeply offensive assaults upon one’s feelings. Facts and figures, especially, are insulting, as they are used as weapons to invalidate one’s anecdotal evidence and emotion-based talking points which form 100% of the roundhouse bitch’s intellectual arsenal. Questions and stated facts are never actually responded to, only deflected in these two ways: 1. by whining about one’s imaginary victim status and 2. by complaining about being “misunderstood”. Amid the sympathy-seeking wails, the roundhouse bitch snidely counterattacks with angry, oftentimes unintentionally humorous outbursts and insults that betray the bitch’s true hate-fueled agenda and desire to dominate and crush opposing views. Such a debating style can be clearly observed in the video clip below, from the Victoria Derbyshire program on which Bergdorf made an appearance after L’Oreal fired him in early September.

This unhappy creature isn’t needed anywhere in the West, including in Britain. He should either kill himself or move to some paradise free of white people. I recommend almost any country in Africa.

Woman Vendor BANNED from British Market for Selling Mugs That Might Offend Muslims

TINA GAYLE. BUSINESSWOMAN. MOTHER OF FIVE.

You may want to take a mini-crash course in the Knights Templar at Wikipedia before reading this story.

The banning of a woman market trader for selling “offensive” Knights Templar mugs isn’t really about the mugs. It about Muslims exercising their clout. It’a also about terrorizing the indigenous white people of Britain.

You will like the lady. She’s totally unrepentant and totally defiant.

metro.co.uk

A market trader has been banned from having a stall after selling Knights Templar coffee mugs – in case they upset Muslims.

Tina Gayle, 57, who was previously warned for selling books and CDs featuring Nazi swastikas, was ordered to remove the £6 mugs from her stall after Charnwood Borough Council received a complaint they were offensive.

The mugs feature a drawing of a knight and have the Latin motto which translates as: ‘Not to us Lord, not to us, but to Your Name give the glory.’ The Knights Templar was a medieval order of crusading Christian monks who fought against Muslim soldiers. Some modern extremists have claimed to be part of them, for example right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik who wrote a ‘manifesto’ saying they had been re-founded to fight against the ‘ongoing European Jihad.’

When Tina, who pays £16.80 each week for a pitch at Loughborough market, refused to withdraw the mugs she was banned from coming back. The mum-of-five, who also works as a book dealer and artist, said: ‘It’s absolutely, completely bonkers. How on earth are these mugs offensive?

‘I haven’t had a single complaint from a Muslim and I’ve had many browse my stall. ‘The complainant said they were offensive because the Knights Templar killed Muslims in the crusades 710 years ago. ‘The Knights Templar were fighting monks, used to protect businessmen travelling across the Holy Lands. ‘They were not marauding murderers. Whoever made the complaint needs to study the history books more closely.

‘If I only sell books on people who haven’t killed someone, I’d be reduced to Alan Titchmarsh.’ She added: ‘The council gave me a letter at 4pm and said I’m banned. You’re meant to have three written warnings before expulsion and they did not do that.

‘I’m now selling the mugs on eBay. I’d like to get back on my stall but at the moment my hands are tied until the council sees sense.’ A spokesperson for Charnwood Borough Council said: ‘The trader refused to remove the mugs from the stall so we issued a second letter which excludes the trader from all Loughborough markets. ‘This decision is in line with our market regulations which state that if a trader has displayed serious misconduct, they can be immediately excluded from trading, with no further warnings required. ‘Serious misconduct includes bringing the market into disrepute and selling items which could be offensive. ‘The trader can appeal this decision, and we would ask her to write to us to confirm she wishes to do so.’

Diversity isn’t a strength. It’s a prescription of conflict.

As injustices go, Tina’s is minor compared to the injustice suffered by the dead victims of Muslim terrorism.

Britain knows what needs to be done. Summon up the political will and do it, you guys.

Panic on London Train As Black Man Reads BIBLE VERSES Aloud

Was the Negro who read apocalyptic Bible passages aloud on a train a devoted Christian seeking to share the gospel or was he a black bastard troublemaker enjoying scaring white passengers?

You make the call on this one.

metro.co.uk

Panicked passengers forced their way out of their rush hour train after a man read out Bible passages in the carriage. The train was just outside Wimbledon at around 8.30am, when the man started reading out phrases such as ‘death is not the end’.

Commuters became scared, and started trying to get out of the carriage as quickly as possible. As the passengers forced open the doors and climbed frantically onto the tracks, the rail power lines were cut. The train was travelling from Shepperton to Waterloo, one of London’s busiest commuter lines.

Ian, who was on the train, tweeted that the man’s Bible-reading caused a ‘crush’ and a ‘commotion’. He said that someone asked the man to stop speaking ‘as he was scaring people’, after which ‘the guy stopped and stood there with his head down’.

Other passengers praised a guard, who apparently dealt with the situation with ‘compassion, restraint and bravery’. A Network Rail spokesman said: ‘Passengers self-evacuated off a train and on to the tracks at Wimbledon this morning after a passenger incident. ‘British Transport Police are investigating and there were no injuries to passengers or staff.

‘This has caused significant delays to services in and out of Waterloo that will continue for the rest of the morning.

Not Terrorism, Police Say: Six People Injured in Acid Attack near London Shopping Centre

I can’t say what happened in London is or isn’t an act of terrorism. London police say that Saturday’s acid attack was not terrorism. The press has revealed that a 15 year old has been arrested for the crime. The question left unanswered is whether he’s a Muslim.

Acid thrown at strangers is generally not a crime you see white Englishmen doing.

metro.co.uk

Six people have been injured in a mass acid attack in the area of a shopping centre in east London.

They were hurt following reports that a group of people were spraying a noxious substance near Westfield, Stratford, police said.

Police said a number of people have been reported injured at different locations within the area.

Emergency services were pictured at the nearby Stratford Centre, while footage from the scene shows paramedics treating an injured person at Stratford Tube station.

Officers have arrested a man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

Hossen, 28, a Burger King assistant manager, said he saw a victim and his friend run into the fast food outlet’s bathroom ‘to wash acid off his face’.

He said: ‘There were cuts around his eyes and he was trying to chuck water into them.’

Witness Zak Abdi told the Mirror: ‘It didn’t hit just one person, it hit a crowd of people. One guy had been hit in the face, he kept shouting ‘I can’t see, I can’t see, I can’t see’.

‘I think he has lost his vision. He kept shouting, it was a scary moment for everyone.’

There are unconfirmed reports that an argument broke out between a group of people in the area.

Some witnesses took to social media to describe the scene, with Kirsty Austin writing: ‘Too scared to leave the station I think if I heard right… the guy on the floor had acid thrown at him.’

A spokesman for the Met Police said the incident is not being treated as terror-related.

A statement said: ‘Police were called just before 8pm on Saturday September 23 to the area around Stratford Shopping Centre to reports of a group of males spraying what is believed to be a noxious substance.

In a story published early this morning, U.S. time, The Sun offers more details and photos.

Teenager James Turvey told how he was sprayed as he ran to help a friend.

The 18-year-old, who suffered irritated skin near his eyes, said: “We were in Mc­Donald’s and, as we got outside, my mate was surrounded by about ten guys.

“They circled him and started punching him.

“People ran to help him and the gang put on balaclavas, got out Lucozade bottles and started spraying everyone. It was horrific.

“My mate has been rushed to hospital. I don’t know how he’s doing. I don’t know why they did it. They just picked on us.”

Kirsty Austin wrote: “Too scared to leave the station I think if I heard right… the guy on the floor had acid thrown at him.

“WHO. COULD. EVER. ATTACK. SOMEONE. THEY. DON’T. KNOW. I’m actually done with how awful this year has been for innocent people.”

She added: “Was at the station a min after and sadly saw and heard him.

“Wishes for him and the friends who were with him.”

VICTIM JAMES TURVEY RECEIVING ATTENTION FROM PARAMEDICS.

That graph near the top of the post suggests that the more nonwhite London becomes, the more dangerous it is to be white. Make London white again or be absorbed by diversity. There is no other choice.
