How to own a Hilux and how to remember stuff

I’m a sucker for anything that makes fun of gender stereotyping (there really are no women in this ad.!) and there are so many in the latest Toyota spot I had to watch it over and over to catch them all. Love the ending too.

And an excellent description of the differences between short-term memory, working memory and long-term memory, with teaching hints for all three:

End of year graffiti walls at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Murals by third year Fine Arts students have started popping up on some of the construction hoardings around the Registry building. The painting is by Emma Tuohy and Cameron Ralston; the front of the building features a vinyl design by Kelsey O’Hagan. Thanks to Hawkins Construction, Deco NZ Ltd and Computaleta Christchurch for supporting the students and supplying materials. Hopefully you’ll see more of this popping up around campus soon!
