Unconscious Mind Can Detect a Liar When Conscious Mind Fails

The unconscious mind could catch a liar

“We set out to test whether the unconscious mind could catch a liar – even when the conscious mind failed,” says ten Brinke. Along with Berkeley-Haas Assistant Professor Dana R.

Immigrant breaks cultural barriers; achieves American Dream

Written by Featured Organization on 01 April 2013.

New book follows a new immigrant’s journey of assimilating into American middle class DALLAS – In the mid-80s, Nigeria was a country torn apart by political strife causing many people to search for a better life abroad. Osaze Ehigiator shares the story of his immigration from Nigeria to the United States in his new book Thrill of the Rookie.

 

Upon his arrival in the U.S., Ehigiator experiences the generosity of others coupled with the challenges associated with culture shock and a language barrier. He worked a number of jobs in the food service industry during his first few years in the U.S. until he registered for college courses and took a job as a cab driver. As a cab driver, Ehigiator was thrust into the underbelly of American society, where poverty is rampant and the vulnerable are exploited.

“There is a separate society inside the United States run by pimps and outlaws,” said Ehigiator. “They operate under a different set of codes called the ‘Eleventh Commandments’ and exploit vulnerable people without pity or remorse.”

Ehigiator hopes to expose this underground society in order to show Americans the exploitation that these people face on American soil.

Throughout the book, Ehigiator shows readers his journey chasing the American Dream and how through hard work and dedication, he achieves his dream of college education. Ehigiator holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree and has successfully assimilated into the American middle-class.

“The American Dream is attainable by anyone who applies themselves and stays focused,” said Ehigiator. “The U.S. is still the best land of opportunity in the world for anyone with a good work ethic and special talents.”

By sharing his experiences, Ehigiator hopes to inspire and provide a guide for immigrants looking to come to the U.S. as well as remind all American citizens to be thankful for their country.
