Intriguing study observing the difference in musical pitch perception between speakers of tone (eg: Cantonese, wherein pitch denotes meaning) and non-tone (English, French) languages. Even in the absence of musical training or background speakers of tone languages show enhanced pitch perception ability. The "auditory evidence challenges the common assumption of universality of basic mental processes and speaks to the domain generality of culture-to-perception influences."

The bad news is, especially for us fat & lazy Americans, is that the great, century-long era of Prosperity-on-Autopilot is over.
The world still wants serious talent. And it still wants people pushing mops, digging ditches, waiting tables and slinging burgers.
It’s the people in the middle who nobody knows what to do with anymore. And the politicians who claim that they do, are lying.
