It’s a common saying that a dog is a man’s best friend. And that is true, literally! According to the study, men have a better chance of finding a partner if they have dogs in their dating app profile pictures. Intriguing, right?
A group of researchers at the University of Jaen, located in Spain, collected and analyzed data from 300 female university students. The study also focused on the variety of reactions depending on the size of the pet dog and the context of the photo. While positive context means photos were taken in well-lit areas or public places, negative context means low-light backgrounds or not-so-clear pics. The researchers studied the preferences of romantic hopeful women willing for dating and the determinant factors behind swiping right or left.
The study reveals that in the case of dating preference, men with dogs are generally perceived to be more attractive. The researchers also found that the size of the dog also matters as men with smaller-sized dogs are perceived to be less intimidating and threatening. According to one of the researchers, the current study has revealed a connection between animal size and common human psychology. In most emotional contexts, dating app profile pics of men with small-sized dogs prompt a higher sense of safety and more positive reactions than medium and large-sized ones.
Though the recent study has confirmed this particular dating preference, the men had already caught onto the preference earlier. As a result, the term ‘dogfishing’ has emerged in the world of online dating in the past few years. The term refers to the clever trend of men trying to lure more matches on dating apps by including a cute pug or adorable little pooch in their profile pictures. Now, the research study has stamped this particular modern age courting method as an effective practice yielding positive results.
Off late, the blue hydrogen has been making headlines for various reasons. Experts and researchers are still trying to understand if this could become the modern-day climate solution or not. Well, it turns out that this form of fuel may not be that eco-friendly after all. To support this theory, Energy Science and Engineering published a study on Thursday that helped us get better clarity about what blue hydrogen is all about.
What Does Robert Howarth Have to Say?
Robert Howarth is the author of this study in an email stating that it was not until recently that everybody was emphasizing blue hydrogen; he further noted that even 2017 established Hydrogen Council was pushing this idea. They stressed that we could consider this form of hydrogen either under the zero or low emissions category. However, they did not have any kind of real data backing their claims.
How Does This Research Turn the Tables?
This research brings to light the reality of blue hydrogen and some uncomfortable truths about its creation process. As per the study, compared to the grey hydrogen, the blue one may have fewer carbon footprints when it comes to methane, but various other things worsen things. Rather than helping to address the climate change problems, it will aggravate and be a dangerous distraction.
Key Facts That are a Cause of Concern
When you look at the potency factor, methane is close to 80 times higher in comparison to carbon dioxide. As per the findings in the IPCC report, the methane numbers are said to be a cause of concern while considering the creating process of hydrogen and the storage of CO2 emissions. It is even pointed out that the so-called supposedly clean fuel is worse than natural gas itself. To make hydrogen, a large number of natural gases is needed.
