Some sense staring from rear, tests find A science program makes the claim after experiment. Dennis Bueckert. The Vancouver Sun . Vancouver, B.C.: Oct 25, 1997. pg. A.4 OTTAWA -- Experiments organized by a well- known television science program suggest there is a statistically significant probability that people can tell when they are being stared at from behind. Data support the theory that people become connected by “morphic fields” when one looks at the other, Jagg Griffith, a producer of the science program, said in an inter- view Friday. Viewers were asked to conduct 20 trials lasting 10-seconds each in which one person would either stare or not stare at a second who was turned away from the first. The second person would report after each trial whether he or she felt stared at. Viewers reported 181 correct responses and 151 incorrect responses, producing an accu- racy rate of 54.5 per cent, Griffith said in an interview. The results are statistically signifi- cant, she said.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
