Direction Of Tail Wag Means Different Things To A Dog - http://geekologie.com/2013...
Direction Of Tail Wag Means Different Things To A Dog
A dog that sees another dog's tail wagging asymmetrically to the left or right elicits a different response in the dog that sees it. In a recent study, researchers found if a dog sees another's tail wagging to the right, the dog responded calmly. If it saw it wagging to the left, its heart rate increases and got anxious. If it saw it chasing its own tail, it felt sorry for the dog the same way you would a stupid younger brother. Earlier, the same research team discovered that dogs wag to the right when they're happy, like seeing their owners, and to the left when they're feeling stressed or anxious (like seeing a dog they're hesitant about). Their prior study showed that left-brain activation produced a wag to the right, while right-brain activation produced a wag to the left -- a consequence of left/right asymmetric functionality in the brain. Honestly, I'm just surprised dogs are smart enough to notice what side another dog's tail is wagging towards. Hell, I'm human and I can barely...

The Beginner's Guide to the Hashtag - http://mashable.com/2013...
The Beginner's Guide to the Hashtag
If you’re a social media novice, hashtags — those short links preceded by the pound sign (#) — may seem confusing and unnecessary. But they are integral to the way we communicate online, and it’s important to know how to use them (even though some people, like Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, are not the biggest fans). Plus, they can be a lot of fun. On Twitter, the pound sign (or hash) turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organize content and track discussion topics based on those keywords. So, if you wanted to post about the Breaking Bad finale, you would include #BreakingBad in your tweet to join the conversation. Click on a hashtag to see all the posts that mention the subject in real time Read more... More about Facebook, Twitter, How To, Social Media, and Tumblr

This Existential Hamster Helps You Contemplate Life
Everyone experiences the occasional spiritual crisis, but saying you feel trapped in life can be an understatement when you're literally a hamster in a cage. Such is the life of Edward the Hamster, the titular character of Miriam Elia and Ezra Elia's quirky book, The Diary of Edward the Hamster 1990-1990. Between boycotting his wheel and going on the occasional hunger strike, Edward experiences the combined existential struggles of Camus, Nietzsche and Sartre See also: 9 Books Based on Your Favorite Netflix Show We all have our days when we feel like Edward.

Apple Reportedly Bringing iTunes Radio To UK, Canada And More In Early 2014
iTunes Radio is one of the best new parts of iOS 7 (and the most recent update to the iTunes desktop media management software), but it's a U.S. exclusive. As is often the case with new movie/music/TV media products, Apple has launched the feature first in its home (and largest) market, likely because it focused on locking down streaming radio rights in the U.S. first. Now, Bloomberg reports that the service is set to expand in early 2014.
