Memory and Multitasking

More scary data: We only think that we are good at multitasking!  This article explains the latest data and has a link at the end for a test.  This applies to all of us, and it underscores our worries about the long-term effects of computer use. Very humbling, indeed.

Nice try, USA: The US is now out of the World Cup. Many of us felt that the refs were turning a blind eye to some of the fouls by Guana, while being awfully free with yellow cards for the US.  Hmmm. Linguistic trivia: rather than translate world cup (which would come out something like g’viat olami), Israel uses the French mondial to refer to this event.

  1. Great minds think alike. I also blogged about multitasking recently: http://erikapov.blogspot.com/2010/06/multitasking-virtual-drug.html
    In Hebrew they do use משחקי גביע העולם בכדורגל, but Mundial (not Mondial) is shorter. I think they use the Spanish word for it.
