To avoid fight with spouse, eat a snack

This undated handout photo provided by Ohio State University shows an all purpose voodoo doll. A quick candy bar may stave off more than hunger. It could prevent major fights between husbands and wives, at least if a new study involving voodoo dolls is right. Psychology researchers monitored the nightly blood sugar levels of 107 married couples for three weeks, asking them to stick pins in a voodoo doll representing their spouses to measure aggression. They found that the lower the blood sugars, the higher the crankiness, and the more pins pushed into the voodoo doll, according to a study released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The people with the lowest glucose scores pushed twice in general as many pins on average as those with the highest blood sugar levels, the researchers said.

Brain scans show what pain looks like

The X-ray scan of a wounded anti-regime demonstrator shows a bullet lodged in his brain while he is nursed at the intensive care unit at a hospital in the eastern city of Tobruk on February 25, 2011. Scientists said Wednesday, April 10, 2013, they have figured out how to recognize pain in brain scans, possibly paving the way for future tests that could accurately gauge its severity.

Experts on deception say everyone lies

By
In this Aug. 29, 2012, file photo, Lance Armstrong talks to supporters prior to a run on Mont Royal Park in Montreal. Armstrong was diagnosed with cancer in 1996. Within minutes of Armstrong announcing he would step down as chairman of Livestrong, the foundation he created to support people with cancer, his longtime endorser Nike issued a statement saying it would be cutting sponsorship ties with the cyclist amid allegations of doping. Armstrong is said to be worth around $100 million, but most sponsors dropped him after USADA's scathing report—at the cost of tens of millions of dollars.

Lance Armstrong may have been branded liar and cheat of the month, but experts say he’s not as different from the rest of us as we’d like to believe.

How do you know if you have forgiven?


By

Lately I’ve been grappling with forgiveness. When I grapple with something, I like to read up on the subject. I’d like to believe that over the years, I’ve become a much more forgiving person than I was 10 or even five years ago. I guess it comes also with having been through a lot of situations or circumstances where I learned that clinging to the pain simply does no good.
