Summerfriendly fabrics men can invest in

first_imgBrave the summer heat in style with added comfort by dressing up in breathable fabrics like linen and chambray, experts suggest. Here are few summer fabrics for men you can opt for: 4Linen: Linen is considered as one of the best fabrics for summer. It is made of flax plant fibers and is a good absorbent of moisture. The material is loosely woven and is extremely lightweight and breathable. Shirts and formal suits made of linen are well-liked during summer as it remains cool and absorbs sweat. Choose among soothing shades like greys, sky blues and you are all cool in the fiery heat. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf4Cotton: Made of a cotton plant, cotton has a soft touch. Even when blended with other fabrics, it is considered as a great option during hot weather. Our body breathes in cotton apparels and combat heat. One of the important features of this fabric is that it is easily washable and is durable.4Chambray: This soft, luminous and light weight cotton fabric is a great choice for that fresh yet elegant look, while still keeping it cool from the inside. Being look-wise similar to denim, you can pair it with chinos and suitable accessories for that smooth, versatile ensemble that works from desk to dinner.

Reasoning not gut behind tough decisions

first_imgNew York: Do people depend on gut feeling for taking tough decisions? Not really. They think through difficult moral problems and do not primarily rely on automatic “gut” reactions to make tough decisions, finds a study.The findings suggested that adolescents and adults reason deeply about complex moral issues, belying the popular notion that we rely on our ‘guts’ and don’t think through challenging questions on right and wrong.”When confronted with very, very hard questions about the value of life, decisions are grounded in multiple and sometimes competing considerations about harm, welfare, individual rights, fairness, and justice,” said lead author Audun Dahl, Associate Professor of psychology at the University of California in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Contrary to popular belief, people are quite able to articulate all of this when asked to justify how they arrived at their decision,” he added in the paper detailed in the journal, Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development.In the study, he analysed moral reasoning by sharing examples of hypothetical dilemma scenarios, with 432 adolescents, college students, and other adults.In the first scenario, a train hurtling down a track was about to hit and kill five people, but a bystander could throw a switch and divert the train to another track, saving five lives.

A bystander on a footbridge above the track could push one man to his death on the track, taking one life to save five others. In both situations, people recognised the value of life, they want to maximize the welfare of all.In addition to the number of lives that would be saved, “both adolescents and adults considered a number of factors: the fundamental value of life, the intrinsic rights of individuals, and their responsibilities in the scenarios, as well as guilt and social repercussions,” he noted.”Our findings rebut that adults can’t reason about moral issues,” Dahl said.last_img read more
