Avengers Campus

Avengers Campus is an upcoming Marvel Comics–themed area being developed at several Disney theme parks: Disney California Adventure in Summer 2020, Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris in 2021, Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023. The Marvel-themed areas or "lands" will be developed at the three parks and inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they will be developed by Walt Disney Imagineering, in collaboration with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment. These three parks all hosted a Marvel-themed seasonal event in the past, which confirmed the demand for the integration of the superheroes in the parks. Based on three different continents, the Marvel-themed areas will be defined as the "Super Hero campus" of their specific region, that will form guests to become heroes; each area will feature different sets of attractions and entertainment, while being interconnected with each other by sharing a common narrative. The version at Disney California Adventure will be taking up the space occupied by A Bug's Land and will be anchored by the nearby Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! attraction.

The land closed on September 2018 to make way for the new area. At the 2017 D23 Expo, Disney announced the Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers as part of the new immersive Superhero area at the park. Disney has said phase one of this superhero themed area will open in 2020. Due to a 1994 contract with Universal Parks & Resorts, Disney cannot use the "Marvel" name in the area name or attractions; the new Spider-Man themed ride will use the former It's Tough to Be a Bug! attraction.

On December 10, 2018, it was announced that Walt Disney Studios Park would feature a Marvel area similar to the one coming to Disney California Adventure, receiving the same Spider-Man ride, Doctor Strange interactive show.

This version entered phase 2 in 2019, which includes Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! in the Science and Technology Pavilion of Stark Expo, along with a new retail facility and themed food. This new attraction joined the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and took up the area where the former Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters attraction used to be. On top of this, there will be new attractions and other forms of entertainment added to the land up until the year 2023, when a brand new Avengers themed ride will open, taking over the area occupied by Autopia.

Mental timeline

A mental timeline is a mental representation of time, spatial in nature. The mental timeline is similar to the mental number line where numbers are perceived increasing left to right. Earlier time periods are associated with the left side of space and time periods with the right, it is thought of as being presented left to right for populations who read left to right and right to left for populations who read right to left. One rationale behind the connection between time and space is that space is an easier concept to understand than time. Space is three dimensional and can be perceived directly using visual sensors, that is, we can physically see a space. In contrast time is one dimensional and can only be perceived indirectly, for example, by seeing that a person has aged, we can infer that time has passed however we do not physically see time. There are many other examples of spatial representations of time around the world such as clocks and hourglasses; this reasoning is given for the use of spatial metaphors connecting the intangible concept of time with a more solid concept of space.

Spatial metaphors such as, ‘there’s a big day ahead’ or ‘put the past behind you’ are common colloquialisms that represent the idea of a mental timeline. They provide linguistic evidence that our cognitive perception of time is linked to our representation of space. Evidence the mental timeline can be seen in experiments such as Santiago, Lupianez and Funes; the participant was shown a list of words categorized into the past or the future on either the left or the right of a computer screen. They were asked to respond by pushing a button either on the right of the keyboard. In the first half of the experiment the left button meant past and right meant future, in the second half these were switched to mean the opposite; the study found that participants responded faster if the response key was aligned with the mental timeline. That is, the participant was faster to respond when the left key was aligned with the past and the right key with the future; this effect mimics the spatial-numerical association of response codes, shown when testing for the mental number line.

Evidence for this effect has been shown using non-linguistic stimuli. Fuhrman and Boroditsky ran a similar experiment to the one described above but with pictorial cues rather than linguistic. Participants were shown pictures of a banana at three time points, unopened or ‘earlier’, half-peeled or ‘middle’ and empty banana peel or ‘later’. Again, participants were asked to respond by pushing a button either on the left or the right of the keyboard; the results showed the same effect as before, where response times were faster when the key was aligned with the direction of the mental timeline. The effect of the mental timeline does not appear to be reliant on visual experience. An experiment using braille showed that blind participants had the same left to right mental timeline as sighted participants, it is thought to be due to the fact that both the sighted and blind participants, in this case, read left to right. There is evidence that patients with left hemispatial neglect ignore the left side of the mental timeline.

Saj, Boroditsky conducted an experiment where patients with left spatial neglect were measured against controls in remembering pictorial cues. The cues were pictures of food. Foods David liked to eat in the past were shown with a white cap above them, while foods he will like to eat in the future were shown with a black top hat above them; the results showed that the participants with neglect recalled fewer items coded to the past and mislabelled more past items as future items than the control group. This suggests that the left side of time was neglected much like the patients have visual neglect of the left side giving more evidence to the use of the mental timeline. Casasanto, Daniel.

Julolidine

Julolidine is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound. It has the formula C12H15N; the first synthesis of julolidine was first reported by G. Pinkus in 1892; this compound and its derivatives have found recent interest as photoconductive materials, chemiluminescence substances, chromogenic substrates in analytical redox reactions, dye intermediates, potential antidepressants and tranquilizers, nonlinear optical materials, high sensitivity photopolymerizable materials, for improving color stability in photography.
