Whether you pulled the lever for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney may reflect how your brain copes with risk, new research finds.The study, which examined the brain activity of 35 men and 47 women registered as either Democrat or Republican, found no difference in the amount of risk people of each political persuasion were willing to take on during a gambling game. But the way the brain processed risk worked differently between the groups, with Republicans showing more activity in an area linked with reward, fear and risky decisions and Democrats showing more activity in a spot related to processing emotion and internal body cues.Recent investigations into the psychology of liberals and conservatives have found a number of subtle differences, from conservatives exhibiting more squeamishness to liberals paying less attention to negative stimuli or threatsComparing the Democrat and Republican participants turned up differences in two brain regions: the right amygdala and the left posterior insula. Republicans showed more activity than Democrats in the right amygdala when making a risky decision. This brain region is important for processing fear, risk and reward.Meanwhile, Democrats showed more activity in the left posterior insula, a portion of the brain responsible for processing emotions, particularly visceral emotional cues from the body. The particular region of the insula that showed the heightened activity has also been linked with “theory of mind,” or the ability to understand what others might be thinking.By: Stephanie Pappas, LiveScience Senior Writer

New Study Shows Who Is Angrier: Republicans or Democrats
A Republican and a Democrat have a problem with their cable bill and decide to call the company’s customer service hotline.1. Which of them is more likely to curse at the representative on the other end of the line?2. Who is more likely to raise their voice and scream?A new study by John A. Goodman, who happens to be one of the founders of the customer service industry and his company CCMR (Customer Care Measurement and Consulting) investigated the current state of consumer rage in the U.S. among people of different political affiliations and found the state of the union is…pretty pissed.One of the more interesting findings in the Rage survey was that Republicans and Democrats express rage differently. Republicans report less general customer rage than Democrats (58 percent versus 69 percent for Democrats) and are significantly more trusting of the companies with whom they do business than Democrats (43 percent versus 31 percent for Democrats). However, a more detailed look into the habits of Republicans and Democrats reveals Democrats are not necessarily the angrier of the two.There are two interesting findings: First, Democrats are far more likely to curse while Republicans are far more likely to yell (13 percent of Democrats let loose with profanity compared to 3 percent of Republicans, while 44 percent of Republicans tend to scream into their phones compared to only 33 percent of Democrats).Second, and perhaps representing perhaps the truest rage indicator used in the study, Republicans were three times as likely to seek “revenge” against companies that wronged them than Democrats (6 percent for Republicans compared to a docile 2 percent for Democrats).If you consider cursing worse than yelling, Democrats take the crown

Well Dr. Since you didn't get to watch the Nancy DNC speech :You maybe still able to find it on the MaybeIt followed a Female Hindu Sikh : Who made mention she had to wear her prayer head covering as she lead the opening prayer. She requested that the audience bow their head & they did, or about 50% 0f them did as the camera panned. That Female Hindu Sikh was offering a Prayer to JESUS.Nance's speech was difficult for her for the drawl's, near slurps, falling behind on the teleprompter, and un able to enunciate or parse her word's properly as they should be spoken. Lip's would not work nor her tongue nor facial expression.She had a very bad palsey in her lip's and right side of the face " Our Left as Viewed } almost literal facial cramps. It was wild - Like comming out of a dentist office.But how ever she looked GREAT like a 20 year old. Little too much of the immediate result of BOTOX - figure ??
