28 Photos On Sunday evening, Egg Gang (as the account has named itself) zoomed from 14 million likes to 18 million in under three hours, meaning it landed in the history books as Instagram’s most-liked post. Kylie Jenner moves to second place after rallying another 100,000 likes as the Egg ascended to the throne. It becomes the first nonhuman in Instagram’s top 20 most-liked posts, with celebrities such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Beyonce and Selena Gomez owning the lion’s share of top photos. As of 6:30 a.m. PT Monday, the egg post had 28.6 million likes, well past the now 18.3 million tally for the Jenner clan.Now that the egg is No. 1 we finally have an answer to the centuries-old question: What came first?But bigger questions persist. Why an egg? Is it an ironic nod to Jenner’s original record-breaking photo about the development of life into a living, breathing creature? Is this a ploy to shed light on the plight of laying practices in the farming industry? Is it just an elaborate ploy to enable the construction of fantastic puns and headlines across the internet? Egg Gang didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

An unusual therapy that involves looking at cute pictures of puppies or bunnies can help rekindle the fading passion in your marriage, scientists have found. One of the well-known challenges of marriage is keeping the passion alive after years of partnership, as passions tend to decline even in very happy relationships. Previous research has shown that marriage satisfaction often declines even when day-to-day behaviours stay the same.Researchers from Florida State University in the US hypothesised that an intervention focused on changing someone’s thoughts about their spouse, as opposed to one that targets their behaviors, might improve relationship quality. They wanted to find out whether it was possible to improve marital satisfaction by subtly retraining the immediate, automatic associations that come to mind when people think about their spouses. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”One ultimate source of our feelings about our relationships can be reduced to how we associate our partners with positive affect, and those associations can come from our partners but also from unrelated things, like puppies and bunnies,” said James K McNulty of Florida State University.Researchers designed their intervention using evaluative conditioning. Images of a spouse were repeatedly paired with very positive words or images – like puppies and bunnies. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveParticipants in the study included 144 married couples, all under the age of 40 and married for less than 5 years. At the start of the study, couples completed a series of measures of relationship satisfaction. A few days later, the spouses completed a measure of their immediate, automatic attitudes toward their partner.Each spouse was asked to individually view a brief stream of images once every 3 days for 6 weeks. Embedded in this stream were pictures of their partner. Those in the experimental group saw the partner’s face paired with positive stimuli (eg an image of a puppy or the word “wonderful”) while those in the control condition saw their partner’s face matched to neutral stimuli (eg an image of a button). Couples also completed implicit measures of attitude towards their partner every 2 weeks for 8 weeks.To measure implicit attitude, each spouse was asked to indicate as quickly as possible the emotional tone of positive and negative words after quickly glimpsing a series of faces, which included their partner’s face. The data showed that the evaluative conditions worked.Participants who were exposed to positive images paired with their partner’s face showed more positive automatic reactions to their partner over the course of the intervention compared with those who saw neutral pairings. More importantly, the intervention was associated with overall marriage quality.As in other research, more positive automatic reactions to the partner predicted greater improvements in marital satisfaction over the course of the study. The new findings suggest that a brief intervention focused on automatic attitudes could be useful as one aspect of marriage counseling or as a resource for couples in difficult long-distance situations, such as soldiers. read more
August 8, 2011 What it is: Founded in 2006, Wix specializes in DIY Web design. Its new mobile site tool creates content for mobile devices like the iPhone and, to a limited extent, the iPad. Wix’s mobile website builder uses simple templates and editing tools that deliver mobile Web basics: a home page with the site name and an image, plus a list of pages with additional content such as photo galleries or lists of services. A preview sidebar shows how the changes look as you go. The bare-bones approach is intentional, says Wix CEO Avishai Abrahami. The company’s initial idea was to move users’ existing Wix websites to mobile devices, but the idea was a flop with beta users who favored more compact, to-the-point mobile sites.Why you might like it: It’s ridiculously easy to use. We created a live mobile website within, no exaggeration, minutes. There isn’t much to it — you can edit text, upload images and change the site colors — but the tool includes mobile must-haves like the click-to-call and click-to-text buttons, which let mobile users reach you right away.Why you might not like it: One word: Flash. Wix’s traditional Web-development tool is based on Adobe’s programing environment, called Flash, so your Web customers need to use a device that supports the language to see your site. Most PCs do, but many mobile devices do not; Apple’s iPad is the best known. Wix uses more Web-friendly development languages for its new mobile tools, but the Flash-based approach still causes problems. Wix mobile sites do well in small format devices like the iPhone, but look frankly unprofessional on the bigger iPad screen.Bottom line: As a low-cost entry to the mobile Web, Wix offers some interesting options for small businesses. Although the Adobe Flash-based site editor might be a deal-breaker for some users, the service is worth a look. There is no harm in having a quick and easy-to-make mobile site.What’s stopping you from making your site mobile? Leave a comment and let us know.
