Both men and women who report high levels of closeness to God take the Bible more literally -- and this confidence grows stronger as they seek intimacy with God through prayer and Bible study.
By studying the logbooks of fishing boats, Princeton postdoctoral research scholar Talia Young and colleagues found that some fishing boats travel more than 250 miles to catch the fish that used to be in local waters. In response, Young began investigating how local community supported fishery programs -- like farm shares for fish -- can affect fishing communities. That resulted in the creation of Fishadelphia, a CSF based in a South Philadelphia charter school.

Used in the right way, smartphones may not be as isolating as some would think. A new Carnegie Mellon University study suggests smartphone-based mindfulness training may help individuals feel less lonely and motivate them to interact with more people. The researchers also found acceptance skills training to be a critical active ingredient for improving these social functioning outcomes.
