Children whose minds wander ‘have sharper brains’

first_imgThe Telegraph:A study has found that people who appear to be constantly distracted have more “working memory”, giving them the ability to hold a lot of information in their heads and manipulate it mentally.Children at school need this type of memory on a daily basis for a variety of tasks, such as following teachers’ instructions or remembering dictated sentences.During the study, volunteers were asked to perform one of two simple tasks during which researchers checked to ask if the participants’ minds were wandering.At the end, participants measured their working memory capacity by their ability to remember a series of letters interspersed with simple maths questions.Read the whole story: The Telegraph More of our Members in the Media >last_img

The FBI said Bubba Wallace was not a victim of a hate crime. The noose that was discovered in his garage had been hanging there since October 2019, which was confirmed by NASCAR’s video footage. Hence, there was no federal crime committed.NASCAR issued a statement to confirm the investigation has been concluded by the FBI. “Photographic evidence confirms that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment,” NASCAR said.

NWFL Super 4: Rivers Angels Beat Delta Queens In Strange Game To Seal Spot…

first_imgEvelyn Nwabuoku’s second-half goal was all Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt needed to secure their place in this season’s Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Super 4 ahead of Delta Queens inside a wet and cold Yakubu Gowon Stadium on Thursday. Nwabuoku fired home in the 63rd minute from a 25-yard set-piece, beating a helpless Ihuoma Onuegbu in goal for Delta Queens. Both teams came into the game in the knowledge that victory for either side would guarantee a place in the season-ending Final Four tournament after Lagos side FC Robo picked the other available ticket with a victory over Osun Babes on Wednesday.The match between Angels and Queens was originally scheduled for Wednesday, September 11 but heavy downpour meant it was shifted to 8am on Thursday. However, kickoff was yet again delayed as the rain continued in the early hours of Thursday with the game eventually kicking off at exactly 11:20am although there was no shortage of drama as Delta Queens held up the match for 20 minutes in protest over the state of the waterlogged pitch. What eventually transpired was a strange game that saw just 24 minutes played in the first half with the referee allowing an hour and seven minutes of action in the second half.Wogu Chioma and Yetunde Adeboyejo both went close for Angels in the first half and Angels maintained their dominance in the second period with Nwabuoku rifling home the winner from a set-piece in the 63rd minute after Wogu had been fouled. Angels head coach Edwin Okon was understandably excited about his side’s progression to the Super Four but was quick to set his team’s focus on the task ahead. “I want to thank God for this victory and the Super 4 ticket,” began an excited Okon.

Tosan Blakson, head coach of Delta Queens was critical of the NWFL’s decision to sanction the game inspite of the ambient circumstances and said his team only carried through with the match out of professional courtesy. “Unfortunately for us, we heard the result of Robo yesterday and knew we needed a win in order to qualify,” said Blakson. “I came prepared because I knew today’s game was a winner-takes-all. “But I equally want to blame the board for making us play under the condition we did today. “We only agree to play because we want football to grow and my girls gave their best,” he added.
