, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- U.S. billionaire Donald Trump is to dominate the Republican contest for presidential nomination longer than expected, but his chance of success is still slim, a U.S. expert told Xinhua in an interview.
Trump is bashed for his bombast, in-your-face nature and aggressiveness, but those traits are ironically just what Americans desire in a leader, Jeffrey Pfeffer, professor of organizational behavior at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University, said in the interview.

, Trump continues to top the list of Republican Party candidates in a very crowded field, and garner much media attention in the race to win Republican nomination for the 2016 presidential elections, despite initial predictions that he was a flash in the pan.
Pfeffer predicted that Trump will continue to dominate the polls and the nomination contest a lot longer than most people expect. While Trump has many of the leadership characteristics people say they abhor, people also reward them, he noted.
People may disapprove of Trump's self-promotion, disdain for facts, and unapologetic persona, but these are the very qualities that allow leaders to succeed. Numerous studies show that narcissism Cheap Craig Biggio Jersey
, not modesty, and self-confidence, even overconfidence, self-presentation lead to leadership roles, according to Pfeffer, author of the book, Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time.
"Trump is all about marketing. Marketing will take you a long way, but not all the way." Pfeffer said. "In the end, people need to build structures that aren't so completely dependent on the whims of one person Cheap Astros Shirts

CANBERRA, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- A common species of Australian pigeon uses the sound of its feathers to warn of impending danger, a local study has found.
Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) found that rather than using vocals, the crested pigeon uses a high-pitched sound produced by its main flight feathers to warn fellow pigeons of predators.
As the pigeon flaps faster to escape danger, the tempo of the alarm signal automatically increases.
Trevor Murray, an animal communication expert from ANU, said on Friday that the team is able to prove that other crested pigeons flee when they hear the warning, proving it is used specifically as an alarm rather than a by-product of flight.
"Crested pigeons signal danger with noisy wings Cheap Astros Jerseys
, not voices," Murray said in an ANU media release.
"It shows that birds really can use their feathers as 'musical instruments' to communicate with others."
In order to prove that the pigeon's whistling feather was an alarm system, researchers used high-speed video and conducted feather-removal studies.
They found that the bird's eighth primary wing feather was responsible for the high-pitched notes with each downstroke.
It was also discovered that the ninth feather produces a low-pitched sound that it was not involved in the alarm.
Researchers played flight sounds of crested pigeons with and without their eighth feather to a flock of other pigeons.
"We show that the crested pigeon produces an acoustic alarm signal with its wings and that it is an intrinsically reliable signal of danger," Murray said.
"The alarm signal is intrinsically reliable because pigeons flap faster to escape predators, and this fast flapping automatically produces the high-tempo alarm signal."
