And This Is Why Cartel Leaders Shouldn’t Floss On Instagram

cartel leader posts life on instagram and gets arrested

If you’re involved with a major drug cartel, you might not want to plaster your exploits on social media. Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, otherwise known as ‘El Chino Antrax,’ was arrested at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the beginning of January after he arrived on a flight from South America. Inside sources say that he was caught because of his public Instagram account that he used to post photos of his extravagant lifestyle. Gamboa is reportedly the right-hand man of Sinaloa Cartel bosses Ismael Zambada and recently captured Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. He’s suspected of murdering and hanging three men from a bridge in 2011, and he’s so infamous that several narcocorrido folk songs have been written about him.

What The Average Human Face Looks Like In Every Country

March 17, 2014 | 5 Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

average faces from around the world

FaceResearch.org has published the results of a recent experiment where experimental psychologists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland have combined the faces of men and women around to world to approximate the “average face” of each country. Using a modern version of the technique that Sir Francis Galton pioneered in the 1800′s, multiple images of faces are aligned and composited together to form the final result.

Some people feel that the average is “too attractive.” Part of this is explained by the process. Instead of having a lot of blurry images with undefined features, this method averages the shape of the features before blending the images together. Also when blending, remember that many singular issues are “averaged away.” The study also does not reveal how the participants were selected or how large the sample size actually is.
