The study found that the childrensignificantly preferred the target of positive nonverbal signals over the target of negative nonverbal signals.” When they were offered the opportunity to give a toy to one of the targets, they were “significantly more likely” to share with the recipient of smiles and warmth. Later, the preschool children were introduced to the targets’ “best friends,” who wore the same color shirt as the target. When the children were asked, “Which of the friends do you like the best?” the majority of kids preferred the friend of the target who had received positive nonverbal signals. In other words, they generalized their initial bias to other individuals in the same shirt-color group.

“The application for the loan can be made online through PTPTN's website (www.ptptn.gov.my),” she said. “To see how much the amount of loan the applicant can receive, we would have to see the applicant’s parent’s finances. If both parents or the applicant are 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) recipient, the applicant can get the maximum loan for their courses. “If they are not recipients of BR1M, we would have to see the household income – if it is below RM8,000 per month, the applicant can get a loan of 75% of the tuition fee, while monthly household income above RM8,000 would be able to get a loan of 50% of the fee,” she said. Mastura also dispels rumours of the loans being used for “non-education spending”. “We believe and hope that the loans will be used to pay their fees ... if they do not do so, they cannot sit for their exams,” she said. Mastura noted that she believes that the students would use the loan during the semester to help pay for accommodation or expenses for their education, including textbooks and computer.

Around the same time, several members of Trump’s team were reportedly in touch with Russian intelligence officials . Flynn’s ties with Russia were well known even before the election. Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort resigned before the election due to his pro-Russia stance and business ties. Trump is known to have business ties in Russia – and he has many times praised Vladimir Putin while refusing to criticise even his more repressive practices. Even after all this, Trump seemed to care little for the potential political or security fallout. For secretary of state he picked Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon Mobil , a company which would stand to gain if the sanctions on Russia were lifted. Tillerson is a noted recipient of Russia’s Order of Friendship , the highest honour it confers on foreign citizens. The evidence on the administration’s connections to Russia is certainly of concern.

65 compassionate acts a day, and receiving .59 such acts. These acts included things like changing personal plans for their partners sake, expressing tenderness or gratitude, or simply doing something thoughtful, like cleaning snow off a spouses car before work. The researchers assumed that, collectively, the couples would reap the most benefits when acts of kindness were recognized and acknowledgedand that hypothesis proved true, for both husbands and wives. But they also found that givers reported emotional boosts even when their actions werent consciously noticed. In these cases, emotional benefits for the giver were about 45% greater than the benefits for the recipient. This was a bit surprising to the researchers. You could argue that being compassionate and not having it noticed would not be good at all, says Harry Reis, a professor of psychology at the University of Rochester.
