Most of us took a second language in high school, then promptly forgot everything we learned in favor of bong making methodology and Led Zeppelin lyrics. But for those who stick with it and wind up fluent in another language, the language you happen to be using at the time may directly affect the outcome of the conversation.Recent studies have suggested that language may act as a cue to which cultural frame of reference a given interaction belongs in. Wait, don't go off Googling apple bongs yet! We'll explain: Psychologists call this phenomenon frame shifting, and it's basically the ability to put yourself in someone else's cultural shoes just by speaking in their language.For example: A test was applied to bilingual Arab Israelis who spoke both Arabic and Hebrew (two cultures that have famously held a little animosity toward each other over the years) that asked participants to record whether words had negative or positive connotations. When the test was given in Arabic, the participants picked Jewish names as being intrinsically negative, but this effect disappeared when the test was given in Hebrew. In short, their bias against Jewish names arose from the fact that they were thinking in Arabic at the time, and not because they necessarily had any deep seated bias against Jews. Don't go thinking that the Arabic language is somehow inherently racist it has plenty of Jewish friends. They just go to another school; you wouldn't know them.But fail the test in multiple languages? Sorry, you're racist after all.The effect can be seen virtually any time you deal with culturally sensitive concepts in two different languages: In another study, Japanese Americans who spoke both Japanese and English were asked to complete the sentence "When my wishes conflict with my family ." in each language. One participant, in Japanese, came up with ". it is a time of great unhappiness." In English, however, he or she finished it with ". I do what I want."We can only assume about the finger snaps and sassy head wobble that accompanied the latter statement. But assume we shall.1. "Futureless" Language Speakers Are Better at Friggin' EverythingConsider the tenses past, present, and future. The difference between the sentences "Bob is at the store buying nachos" and "Bob will go to the store to buy nachos" has explicit implications about how far we are from eating nachos. That is need to know information. But it may be surprising that some languages don't have a future tense, or it's not obligatory.One might think that speakers of such languages would just be wandering around confused, utterly unmoored from time as we know it, hurtling obliviously through chronology with no anchors to tether them, screaming into the void as history whips pas Huh. The surprising result was that cultures in which most people speak languages without a future tense make better health and financial decisions overall. In fact, it found that speaking a tensed language, like English, made people 30 percent less likely to save money. It is thought that speakers of such languages, whom we shall call Untensers, see their lives as less of a timeline and more of a whole. Therefore they are automatically more mindful of how their decisions will affect their futures than we savage, primitive Tensers. Strangely, it seems that thinking of "the future" as being some far off place, removed from the realities of our daily lives, makes us more likely to buy that second Xbox just because the first looked lonely.Untensers consistently accumulate more wealth, hold onto it for longer periods of time, are healthier, and live longer than Tensers, for whom the past is something we've left behind, and the future is like a distant planet where consequences live that we don't fully intend to visit.Mike Floorwalker can be found on the Twitters and the Facebooks.Always on the go but can't get enough of Cracked?

Secretary of Agriculture had a horrifying nightmare that he was thrown into a shallow grave by a giant ear of corn and then buried alive. "I'm walking alone through this barren cornfield in the middle of the night, and it's completely silent," said Vilsack, speculating that perhaps the recent pressure he's been feeling about rising corn prices could have had something to do with the nightmare. "Then this massive form blocks the moonlight and I feel something rough and dry sliding across my skin. Then two powerful husks wrap around my arms and feet and lift me from the ground. Next thing I know, this gigantic ear of corn is dragging me across the empty field towards a perfectly round hole in the ground." "I tried to ask why, to plead with it, but I couldn't speak because my teeth had turned to corn kernels and were falling from my gums," Vilsack added. Tuesday's was only the most recent in a series of terrifying corn based dreams suffered by the agriculture secretary since taking over the post in early 2009. According to Vilsack, he often dreams that he is delivering an important address to the nation on the importance of corn subsidies when he realizes that everyone in the audience is an ear of corn, and they are all laughing at him. In another common nightmare, Vilsack returns to his childhood home to find that the pond in his backyard is filled with rotting creamed corn, and his children are corn muffins drowning to death. In another dream, Vilsack goes from eating to kissing an ear of corn named Derek. "It all seemed so real still can feel the dirt on me and see every single kernel on the hulking ear of corn," Vilsack said of the previous night's dream. "And then it all switched and I was burying the corn and it was asking for help, saying I was making a mistake. The thing is, I didn't want to be burying the corn; I wanted to save the corn." Last week, Vilsack began attending regular counseling sessions with psychologist Dr. Jacob Collins to discuss his subconscious issues with the edible grain. "Mr. Vilsack has already shown a lot of progress, and has really opened up about his thoughts, fears, and feelings about corn," Collins said. "While each person's specific behavior and past experiences influence their dreams, in this particular case I believe the corn in Mr. Vilsack's dreams represents corn." Despite the growing concerns of family, friends, and co workers, Vilsack insists that he doesn't always have chilling nightmares about corn and sometimes has wonderful dreams where he feels completely free while flying through a sky filled with corn or making love to a sexy cob with the most plump and juicy kernels. 653996 060 KD 7 Calm Before The Storm Grey Hyper Punch Light Magnet Grey,two inches high heeled It was months already that am into buying a black pump shoes or a black close high heeled shoes for some formal occasion or going to church.

In chapter five, Paul explains the ideal relationship between a man and a woman in a marriage relationship. He advises wives to submit to their own husbands and respect them just as they do to the Lord. With equal vigor, Paul commands husbands to love their wives just as Christ loved the church and sacrificed Himself for the church's sake. Paul references Genesis 2:24 to remind the church of the origins of the marriage covenant. In the first of Peter's letters to the church in Asia minor, he echoes Paul's insistence on marital relationships as expressed in the book of Ephesians. He insists that a good marriage is one in which wives be subject to their own husbands, even if their husbands do not share their convictions. Similar to Paul he directs husbands to mimic Christ by loving their own wives and respecting them as fellow heirs of grace. Bible Verses About the Marriage Between a Man a Woman.
