Experimental setup and participant performance. (A) We used a Meccanoid15KS animated at a distance by a human operator using two smartphones to control the robot's gestures and speech. In the two presence conditions, the robot was positioned in front of participants (to their right on the edge of their periph eral vision) and watched them 60 % of the time by turning the head according to a pre-established script. (B) The main effect of condition on Stroop performance improve- ment (error bars represent 1 SE) indicates that the positive interaction condition did not differ from the control condition, whereas the negative HRI condition differed from the positive HRI and control conditions averaged (see the Supplementary Materials for detailed statistical analyses).

kamikazevendetta: souratgar: I made an art tutorial on how to draw hijab and hijabis! Ahhhhh!!! Its so good!! Thank you lovely person for making this, maybe ill finally get to see people dressed like me in art soon!! (Also thank you for the note on the modest clothing- wearing a hijab isnt like choosing to wear a hat, while how each hijabi wears it is different and totally up to her, its frustrating to see it added on as an afterthought in media to gain representation points. A large part of the reason many wear it is the lack of sexualisation it gives us, so please keep that in mind!): HOW TO DRAW HIJAB @souratgar certified Muslim WHAT IS HIJAB? "Hijab" is a form of dress code in Islam. Not only does it apply to women, but it applies to men as well. Hijab means dressing modestly; covering your arms, legs, and wearing loose clothing. There's a lot of different types of hijab! Here's the 3 main types: (somehimes the entire) face is covereel @Souratgar HIJAB FOR THE SAKE OF SPACE, WEL LOOK ONLY AT THO STYLE) NIQAB BURQA Sometimes hijabis will wear a CHADOR over their hijab. A chador is a fabric that hangs from your head (it's almost like a superhero cape!) Some Muslim women will wear chador while praying. M SUPER They come in a lot of different designs and colours. The most common colour is black. Com FY However, there are plenty of chadors that have beautiful floral designs. The fabric used to make chadors is usually cotton. @souratgar "OKAY SO HOW DO I DRAN IT? It's very easy! Drawing a hijab requi res one skill: knowing how fabric folds! And sometimes, depending on how tight the hijab is there won't be many fabric folds! @souratgar MIX TIGHT LOOSE You can even design your own! The criteria for a hijab is - Covers ears, neck, and hair - *Has* to be worn with modest clothing, no bikini armour sorry :( REMEMBER! To use references! But also, if a hijiabi has a problem with your design or your drawing of a hijabi, listen to them! You can always learn new things from others, especially those you're trying to represent. @souratgar THANKS GOOD LUCK kamikazevendetta: souratgar: I made an art tutorial on how to draw hijab and hijabis!

feniczoroark: randomnightlord: feniczoroark: randomnightlord: feniczoroark: @randomnightlord Look, they’re making new things for the guardsmen Weren’t the Tyranids completely immune to every sort of laser weaponry except some strange insecticide they loaded into bullets I know the autocannons were/are okay/good for use against tyranids. Lasweapons were too slow I thinkI was mainly just taking the piss out those guardsmen and their flashlights Oof Seriously, according to the wiki: “However, it is against the Tyranids that the Autocannon finds its true calling. The ability to deliver large volumes of heavy firepower is vital in combating massive Tyranid bioforms such as Hive Tyrants and Carnifexes, which lack the natural armour that requires the penetrating power of a Lascannon, but are too tough to be threatened by a Heavy Bolter.”Weird, since the Hbolter uses fucking microrockets Nice: What we see: Scientists have been working on a mosquito-killing laser that can kill upto 100 mosquitos a second. The system can even distinguish gender and species by calculating the speed at which their wings beat.

bennonobueno: uncommonbish: Congratulations to white people for discovering the things they labelled as savage and uncivilised when they found our ancestors doing them Stop judging the article by this poorly frased tweet. Please just read the actual article. This guy obviously doesn’t claim to have discovered the coconut or it’s many different uses. He simply found a cheap way to mass produce pallets out of coconut husks. Of course making new things out of coconuts is an age old practice but it has never been done at this scale. This actually is a pretty cool thing because it makes use of millions of coconut husks that would have gone to waste and therefore saves more valuable resources like trees from being cut.

The writer knows what’s up: Vodafone.de 36 %| 09:03 Summary How we work ("bullshit-free" version); We write all new code in Swift but we also carry the baggage of legacy Objective-C code. Ugly 10-year-old Objective-C code. You know what we mean. But we're committed to getting rid of it We reach 400,000 people every day. We support 13 languages. We have more than 2 million vehicles in our database We really care about quality. We have a lot of tests and keep a close eye on our crash logs. . We aim to be data-driven. We A/B test all user-facing features.We're focused on user experience and work closely with UX designers. . We automate ALL THE THINGS. We own our Cl. We use TeamCity, Fastlane, Danger, and all the rest. We love trying new things. Architectural patterns, services, tools, you name it. Promises and Apollo (GraphQL) work great for us. Heck, we even tried Readt Native. Not that great. What We Need From You Passion for development and a strong sense of ownership * Be not afraid to explore or touch things, even in ugly old legacy code Be agile . Think beyond Swift and Objective-C. There will also be some Ruby, shell scripts, and even the occasional Scala Speak English (German is a plus, Bavarian even more, but that's more important for Oktoberfest) *Willing to give and accept help from your colleagues (a.k.a. "collaborative culture") Be smart and don't overengineer every piece of code you push (some overengineering between Christmas and New Year's Eve is fine) The writer knows what’s up
