What does it mean to be “cute”? Beauty standards and perceptions of attractiveness vary across cultures, but one thing is clear: being called “cute” is something entirely different. Is there a scientific explanation of why our brains perceive some people as “cute” and others as “beautiful,” “hot,” and so on? We’re about to answer all of them with the help of science!

- There are other traits in babies that our brain, for whatever reason, finds adorable. They have a disproportionate head-to-body size and short limbs. In fact, if babies were proportioned more like mini-adults, we probably wouldn’t be as inclined to coo at them!
- East Asian people tend to hold onto these features into adulthood, a phenomenon called “neoteny.” Studies have found that neotenous faces are often perceived as more social and feminine, whereas non-neotenous faces are seen as more intimidating.
- The EDAR gene controls the development of our hair, skin, and teeth. This mutation causes people to have thicker hair shafts, more oil glands (which helps keep skin looking youthful for longer), and less breast tissue in females.
- Sexual dimorphism is what makes males and females of the same species look different. So, less sexual dimorphism means men with neotenous faces tend to look more feminine.
- The recent surge in the worldwide popularity of Korean pop music (abbreviated as Kpop) with groups like BTS has put this cultural difference in the spotlight. Rather than exhibiting the sort of “macho” features of Western standards of male beauty, sensational Kpop stars like Jimin have smooth faces, slim bodies, and an overall feminine appearance.

He has a great personality, is a versatile dancer and his vocals have improved so much! He takes care of people be it family, BTS, friends or the fandom. Though his smile makes your day, but the fact that he is such a good soul is what I find the cutest about him.
I dont think feminine looking asian men are going to replace masculine looking men anytime soon - just look at the leads of major films involving asian men - those guys aren't feminine. Also - how much plastic surgery do these guys have? It's awful.
Honestly it’s a smooth face and a weird laugh that make someone cute. Jimin is my second favorite but Jungkook is more a feature person for me. His laugh and youngest and strong muscles put together make a ultimate love! *ARMY COME OUT*
Jimin is cute, but he is not just cute. He is BEAUTIFUL. Of course, ALL the men of BTS are beautiful, and it is a masculine beauty. Don't beauty standards also have a lot to do with symmetry?
In BTS, Namjoon is my bias, but if I had to rank them by looks (which I don't know that I could do, because I'd change my mind every two seconds depending on the picture or the video I looked at), I'd probably put Jimin first, and Namjoon a very, very close second. I've noticed that Namjoon seems to be more popular with Western women than he is with Asian women...has anyone else noticed that?
I truly appreciate the Chris Hemsworth's of the world, but I have ALWAYS had a huge appreciation for beautiful Asian men. And please don't flame me, because this is just my personal opinion, but I've always thought that humans who are of half Asian descent and half Western European descent are the most beautiful humans in general, especially the men. Hmm...I guess it's how the genes mix together?
People call me cute all the time 😂😊😘, but one day, I will upgrade to the next update😂😂 (Jimin will replace THOR😂😂) I really like asian boys, but I also like masculine guys! I prefer an Asian Masculine guy😂😂🤤
Wait the video title should not be Asians it should replace that Asian word to "Mongoloid or Chinese faced" because I was waiting for other Asian countries maybe Bright Side doesn't know much about Asia😅😅😅
Owned buildings at another site may be used as alternate workspace if a building cannot be occupied. This depends upon the location of the building and whether the building would be affected by the same hazard that prevented use of the primary building. The alternate facility may be a viable business recovery strategy if the building can be configured with the required equipment or existing equipment can be configured to need business requirements.
Systems and Equipment.
Evaluate these systems to determine whether they meet the needs of the program. Identify and plan to overcome emergency communication system limitations such as weak radio or cellular service or areas where a warning system cannot be heard. Upgrading this critically important system may be required. Verify that these systems are in reliable working condition.
If fuel, battery backup power or batteries are required, make sure the system can run for the required time and chargers are available. Document how to operate these systems and mark the locations of controls. Make sure the information is available during an emergency. Many of these systems also require periodic inspection, testing and maintenance in accordance with national codes and standards. Train staff so a knowledgeable person is able to operate systems and equipment.
Materials and Supplies.
Be sure to compile a list of available resources using the Emergency Response Resource Requirements and Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheets as a guide.
Preparing for an emergency, responding to an emergency, executing business recovery strategies and other activities require resources that come from outside the business. If there were a fire in the building, you would call the fire department. Contractors and vendors may be needed to prepare a facility for a forecast storm or to help repair and restore a building, systems or equipment following an incident.
The following external resources should be identified within plan documents. Include contact information to reach them during an emergency and any additional instructions within the preparedness plan.
Public Emergency Services.
