So I just finished the first two volumes of 進撃の巨人 in Japanese. Great art, and a chilling story. I enjoyed it very much.
I’m told by my son that a section of the fandom tends to hate on アルミン for being a coward. Look. アルミン isn’t a warrior. And frankly, few of us would be in his shoes, either. We’d be wetting ourselves in terror on a minute-by-minute basis if our world were a small patch of land surrounded by man-eating giants.
アルミン is a tactician - and as a tactician, he has saved countless lives. He’s the Xander Harris of SnK.
(And yes, I know that’s アレン in the pic, so don’t go there.)
New Study Shows Hillary Clinton’s Face Makes Women More Confident
Tess VandenDolder Apr 25th at 1:07 pm
In the study individual men and women were asked to give a speech in front of a panel of six strangers. For some there was a picture of Bill Clinton on the back wall and for others there was a picture of Hillary. Overall the men spoke longer and were judged as better speakers than the women, except for the group of ladies who spoke while looking into Hillary’s baby blues. That group blew the men out of the water as far as the length of their speeches and overall confidence and success in conveying their ideas publicly.
The conclusion researchers drew from this study was that when women are exposed to powerful female role models in leadership positions they gained instant boosts in confidence and the ability to achieve at high levels. ”Female political role models can inspire women and help them cope with stressful situations that they encounter in their careers, such as public speaking,” the authors of the study wrote. ”A lack of female powerful role models leads to a vicious circle, because if women fail to take leadership positions, they also fail to provide role models for junior women to follow.”
