US school shootings rise rapidly in two decades: study 20.4.2018 General News
Mass shootings at US schools are rising rapidly, killing more people in the last 18 years than in the entire 20th century, said a study today. The report in the Journal of Child and Family Studies tallied mass shootings -- events when at least one shooter killed at least four others -- and death tolls at US schools for children and teens aged five to 18, going back to 1940. The study excluded gang shootings and any shootings that occurred at universities. "The United States had no mass school shootings that fit our criteria until 1940, when a junior high school principal killed the superintendent, the high school principal, the district business manager, and two teachers, before attempting suicide, because he thought he was going to be fired at the end of the school year," said the report. Researchers found no mass school shootings in the 1950s and 1960s, followed by "a steady increase beginning with a school shooting in 1979 orchestrated by a 16-year-old female with mental health ...

Nationwide German raids target Thai forced prostitution ring 18.4.2018 General News
German police carried out dawn raids today against an alleged organised crime ring suspected of human trafficking for forced prostitution on a massive scale from Thailand. Calling it the "biggest operation in terms of manpower in the history of the federal police force", it said in a statement that some 1,500 officers swooped on 63 brothels and flats in 12 of Germany's 16 states. Authorities say a "core group" of 17 suspects "smuggled Thai women and transsexuals into Germany with fraudulent Schengen visas". Those brought to Germany "had to hand over 100 per cent of their wages to the operators of the respective 'massage parlours' to pay off their smuggling fee" of between 16,000 and 36,000 euros (USD20,000-45,000). Seven of the accused, including a 59-year-old Thai woman and her 62-year-old German partner, were taken into custody on outstanding arrest warrants. Prosecutors in the western city of Frankfurt, who have been working with police on the case since February 2017, estimate ...

Workplace anxiety may boost performance 18.4.2018 General News
Anxiety in the workplace can help boost employee performance in certain situations, a study has found. Researchers from University of Toronto in Canada looked at both the triggers of workplace anxiety and also its relationship to employee performance. "If you have too much anxiety, and you're completely consumed by it, then it's going to derail your performance," said Julie McCarthy, an expert on organisational behaviour. "On the other hand, moderate levels of anxiety can facilitate and drive performance," she said. If employees are constantly distracted or thinking about things that are causing them anxiety, it will prevent them from completing tasks at work and that can eventually lead to exhaustion and burnout, said Bonnie Hayden Cheng, now an assistant professor at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. However, in certain situations anxiety can boost performance by helping employees focus and self-regulate their behaviour. Cheng compares it to athletes who are trained to harness ...

Raw fruit, vegetables good for mental health: study 17.4.2018 General News
Eating raw fruits and vegetables may be better for your mental health than cooked, canned and processed products, a study has found. Public health campaigns have historically focused on aspects of quantity for the consumption of fruit and vegetables. However, the study, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, found that for mental health in particular, it may also be important to consider the way in which produce was prepared and consumed. "Our research has highlighted that the consumption of fruit and vegetables in their 'unmodified' state is more strongly associated with better mental health compared to cooked/canned/processed fruit and vegetables," said Tamlin Conner, Psychology Senior Lecturer at University of Otago in New Zealand. Conner believes this could be because the cooking and processing of fruit and vegetables has the potential to diminish nutrient levels. "This likely limits the delivery of nutrients that are essential for optimal emotional functioning," said ..
