    Babies who seem the most captivated by magic tricks go on to become more curious children — and may also be more intelligent — a study has found. Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore studied the curiosity of infants from the age of 11 months to three years. They found that the children's interest in seemingly magical events — like a floating toy or a ball that passed through a wall — remained constant as they developed. Furthermore, the babies who appeared most intrigued by such illusions went on to become more curious toddlers, the team found. 'Something about a baby's curiosity about magic tricks is predicting how curious they become as pre-schoolers,' said study co-author Lisa Feigenson. 'What the data suggest is that some three-year-olds have a leg up or seem particularly well positioned to learn a lot about the world.'  Babies who seem the most captivated by magic tricks go on to become more curious children — and may also be more intelligent — a study has found THE MAGIC OF MAGIC  Past research in Professor Feigenson's...

    Everyday Aussie mum Natalie Angel has turned her natural flair for fashion into a business opportunity after her realistic try-on videos on Instagram amassed her a following of more than 123,000 women who soak up her every word.  The mum-of-one from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, started her page 'Let Me Try Before You Buy' 18 months ago after noticing a 'huge gap in the market for honest feedback' for clothing that is inclusive of sizes 16 and beyond. Natalie, 41, sat down with FEMAIL and explained that while the average Australian woman is between sizes 14 and 16, few honest reviews exist online for them. Since there is no standard size guide in Australia, Natalie often felt blinded and frustrated shopping for clothes online that fit correctly. So, the personable mum decided to 'give it a go' herself and began sharing videos of herself trying clothes on online to help women find the perfect fit. Her brand now has a strong, engaged following and companies almost always sell-out immediately after appearing in one of her 'try-on' videos.  Scroll down for...
    We’re not exercising enough. We’re eating too much of the ‘wrong’ food. Our waists are too big. It’s pretty hard to ignore the daily barrage of messages about our bodies and health. The slings and arrows are well-intentioned because it’s known that these kinds of factors play a key role in health and the risk of developing a life-limiting chronic disease, such as type 2 diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, fatty liver disease, cancer, dementia — and, more recently, dying from Covid-19. Most Brits now spend the last 20 years of their lives in ill health, or with some form of disability. And these numbers are rising — thanks to our expanding waistlines, but also because we are moving too little and sitting for far too long. Nobody wants to end up like this. But, equally, nobody wants to feel they’re being told off about it. Not least because it can leave you feeling inadequate when it seems that the only option being offered is drastic life change. ‘Drastic life change’ may be what some of you are after; but others,...

Researchers from Hungary grouped dogs into two categories based on their behavioural traits — and then tested their ability to learn by watching others.
