The study tested 186 children ages 3 to 7 in a temptation-resistance paradigm. Approximately half of the children were lied to by an experimenter, who said there was “a huge bowl of candy in the next room” but quickly confessed this was just a ruse to get the child to come play a game.

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.

New Company, Black Business Apps, Helps Black Entrepreneurs Capitalize on Mobile Revolution

Written by Featured Organization on 25 February 2013.

 Austin, TX -- Black Business Apps is helping black entrepreneurs and businesses capitalize on the mobile revolution. The company specializes in highly functional mobile applications for small businesses and professional service-oriented entrepreneurs. Founded by author, speaker and television personality Fran Harris, the company specializes in the development of highly functional mobile applications for small businesses and professional service-oriented entrepreneurs. A snapshot of Fran Harris, founder and CEO of Black Business Apps,being featured in her self-developed app.

During February, Black History Month, to commemorate the genius and innovation of black entrepreneurs, BBA is promoting a "Success Runs In Our Race" Special on all apps ordered by midnight on February 28, 2013. "This deal is like a glass of southern iced tea - and we all know how sweet that is," laughed founder & CEO, Fran Harris, who also co-founded the highly successful Black Millionaires Summit in 2008 featuring Russell Simmons.

"There are two business trends that we simply can't afford to ignore," said Harris. "Local and mobile." By 2015 the mobile marketing industry is expected to eclipse the $38 billion mark. Research shows that black entrepreneurs tend to lead in the consumption but not in the development of technology. Harris' company aims to change that.

"In 2013 there's no good reason for us to be behind the 8-ball when it comes to growing our companies through the power of the Internet and mobile," said Harris. "But if finances have kept start-ups, mom & pops or other companies from taking the mobile plunge, my company plans to eliminate the tech barrier for those who are truly serious about their brand's success."

Black Business Apps develops Android, iPhone and iPad apps for small businesses and professional services such as restaurants, doctors, chefs, dentists, authors, speakers, bands, lawyers, rappers, churches, non-profits and entertainers. "While we can certainly develop applications on the scale of mega-apps like Angry Birds or Evernote, most companies don't need a $500,000 app to grow their businesses," said Harris. "But they do need to be in the mobile space because that's where their customers live." For more information, visit www.BlackBusinessApps.com.
