In dieser Studie wird der Attentional Blink repliziert. 104 Versuchspersonen sollten in einer schnellen aufeinanderfolgenden visuellen Präsentation von Buchstaben einen teilweise definierten Buchstaben (Target) identifizieren und dann die An- oder Abwesenheit eines vollständig definierten Buchstaben (Probe) bestimmen. Die Psychologiestudenten führten die Versuchsreihe in Räumen der Universität durch, in denen mehrere Computer zur Verfügung standen. Die übrigen Teilnehmer nahmen einzeln in ruhiger, häuslicher Umgebung an der Versuchsreihe teil. Insgesamt gab es zehn Versuchsleiter. Das Experiment wurde zur Überprüfung der Deutlichkeit der Instruktionen in Probedurchgängen mit freiwilligen Testpersonen, die hinterher nicht mehr am fertigen Experiment teilnahmen, getestet. Zusätzlich konnten durch zahlreiche Selbstversuche auch technische Probleme ausgeschlossen werden. Das Experiment wurde aus ökonomischen Gründen zusammen mit drei anderen Experimenten zu einer Versuchsreihe zusammengefügt. Die Durchführung der Untersuchung erfolgte vollständig computergestützt. Wie bei der Untersuchung von Raymond et al. (1992) wurde ein experimentelles Versuchsdesign mit Messwiederholungen benutzt. Jede Versuchsperson wurde auf jeder Position des Probes getestet.

In the Blink of an Eye is editor Walter Murch's essay of film editing. Starting with what might seem to be the most basic editing question - Why do cuts work? - he treats the reader to a marvelous "ride" through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. Along the way, he offers his insights on such subjects as continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming, and real life; the criteria of a good cut; and the blink of the eye as both an analog to and an emotional cue for the cut. New to this second edition is Murch's lengthy meditation on the current state of digital editing.

As a young man in Glasgow’s underworld, Ian ‘Blink’ MacDonald fought, robbed and slashed his way to the top, developing a taste for the high life along the way. His notoriety earned him an offer of work from Scotland’s most feared gangster, Arthur Thompson, but MacDonald had other plans: to finance a new life in Spain with the multimillion-pound proceeds of a high-risk armed bank robbery. But the job went badly wrong, and MacDonald was jailed for 16 years. In prison, he met scores of high-profile inmates, including torture-gang boss Eddie Richardson, high-society serial killer Archie Hall, notorious lifer Charles Bronson and Ronnie O’Sullivan senior, father of the snooker star. On his release, MacDonald became a magnet for trouble, enjoying a hedonistic, drug-fuelled lifestyle and finding himself drawn into conflict with police, gangsters and businessmen. Rearrested several times, he was the target of more than one terrifying murder attempt. In Blink, MacDonald provides an eye-opening account of his highly eventful journey through life in Glasgow’s brutal gangland.

Threats promising more attacks spread through the media. Panic has broken out in many cities. How could American intelligence have failed to detect a nuclear device? Who is responsible for the blast? Sean Falcone, national security advisor, is tasked with identifying and tracking down the attackers. Powerful forces within the Capital point the finger at Iran. But appearances are always deceiving, and never more so than when millions of innocent people may die for a crime they did not commit. With the potential to incite the entire Muslim world against America and bring the world to the brink of Armageddon, Falcone discovers an astonishing secret hidden deep within the upper echelons of Washington's elite...but why should the President—or the American people—believe him?
