Android Portable Device Application- Soundwave

"Sarah it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how do you respond?" a person asks Sanders.

In a cheeky clip posted on Twitter, White House staff argued over Yanny and Laurel.

Regarding the Laurel or Yanny question, the "right" answer is Laurel since the clip was taken from a recording of the word "Laurel" from dictionary.com.

Thanks to the team from ASAPScience who unpack the perplexing audio clip and explain in detail why some of us hear "Yanny" and some of us hear "Laurel".

In a rare display of lighthearted humor, an unlikely source weighed in on the internet's "Yanny vs. Laurel" debate: the White House. The Yanny vs Laurel debate has now reached The White House - and it's a divided house as the staff can not agree on what the audio clip actually says.

The Taliban claimed the assault on Farah in statement to media, saying they had attacked from multiple directions. Clashes between militants and security forces forced Farah residents to close shops and businesses.

Some hear one word very clearly and can't understand why anyone would hear the other.

A short explanation people's brain's perceive pitch and frequency differently and depending on the person you'll hear a different word.

"Who's Yanny?" Vice President Pence asks. Much like anything on the internet, disagreements over what is being said in the clip broke out nearly immediately.

The Press Secretary blamed his information on CNN calling it "fake news" and clarified she could only hear Yanny. In a recent Twitter poll, 47% of people heard Yanny while 53% heard Laurel.
