A fascinating look at how a little girl walking in the
sand of the African desert could cause a hurricane 4000
miles away in the USA. Great video from BBC show The
Science of Superstorms. Contains some scenes that some
viewers may find upsetting.

Eyewitness Misidentification

Eyewitness misidentification is the single greatest
cause of wrongful convictions nationwide, playing a role
in more than 75% of convictions overturned through DNA
testing.

While eyewitness testimony can be persuasive evidence
before a judge or jury, 30 years of strong social
science research has proven that eyewitness
identification is often unreliable. Research shows that
the human mind is not like a tape recorder; we neither
record events exactly as we see them, nor recall them
like a tape that has been rewound. Instead, witness
memory is like any other evidence at a crime scene; it
must be preserved carefully and retrieved methodically,
or it can be contaminated.
