You can’t multitask

psychofactz:

We know, you are a professional multi-tasker. Unfortunately, if you really believe that, you are also overly self confident, because the truth of the matter is that humans cannot multi-task. At least not in the sense of the term that we often use. While you can certainly walk around while talking to your friend, your brain can only focus on one higher level function at a time, which means you cannot be thinking about two things at once.

Britain’s First (Biracial) Black Marchioness Emma McQuiston.

Upon marrying Ceawlin Thynn, heir to the Longleat estate, she is a  viscountess and a marchioness-in-waiting. She will take the name Lady Bath when her husband inherits his father’s peerage.

The mixed-race daughter of a Nigerian oil tycoon is marrying into the aristrocracy’s most eccentric family. Her father-in-law, 80-year-old Alexander Thynn, the seventh Marquess of Bath, is well known not least for his harem of at least 75 “wifelets” that he keeps in cottages on his estate, despite having been married for four decades.

Miss McQuiston claims to have had to face “some snobbishness, particularly among the much older generation”. She told Tatler magazine: “There’s class, and then there’s the racial thing.”

“she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background”

SO REBLOG, BECAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.

Genomic sequencing indicates that the human genome shows every sign of having had a long past history of evolution, taking place partly by means of natural selection and partly by means of genetic drift. You can read this chapter from Genes: A Very Short Introduction free on VSI Online for a month.

Gerzina has written a fascinating account of London blacks, focusing on the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Because of a paucity of sources from blacks themselves, Gerzina had to rely primarily on glimpses through white eyes, especially those of antislavery advocate Granville Sharp. Gerzina is quite adept at culling evidence of a rich, complex black life, with significant interaction (and intermarriage) with the white community.
