Radicalized French citizens who adhere to Islamic State propaganda are less likely to disengage from their beliefs if they are married men with children, and from families with married parents. This is according to Nicolas Campelo of the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in France, who led a study in the journal Palgrave Communications which is published by Springer Nature.
A study is the first to use qualitative research to gain deeper insight into law enforcement officers' personal experiences and perspectives on the use of body-worn cameras in a post-Ferguson era. Based on a long and deep immersion in the field, researchers have generated insider knowledge on one of the most overt strategic changes to modern American policing.
Our ability to do things well suffers when we try to complete several tasks at once, but a series of experiments suggests that merely believing that we're multitasking may boost our performance by making us more engaged in the tasks at hand.

The cognitive skills of a future employee are examined during a job interview. However, qualifications and a nice character don't necessarily mean that the interviewee will be a competent colleague. The individual's emotional intelligence has to be factored in, that is, his capacity to understand, regulate and manage emotions in the specific context of the work environment. Researchers at the UNIGE and UNIBE have devised an emotional intelligence test that measures emotional competences at work.
A Rutgers-led experimental study found that women prefer and invest more in daughters, while men favor and invest more in their sons. The study of gender biases appears in the journal Scientific Reports.
A new national study shows that people whose mothers had more partners -- married or cohabiting -- often follow the same path. Results suggest that mothers may pass on personality traits and relationship skills that make their children more or less likely to form stable relationships.
