New research published in The Journal of Physiology highlights how exercise could help people exposed to extreme temperatures protect themselves from the cold. This could be useful for people who live and work in very cold conditions.
Tourists considering overseas travel 'trust' a destination like London would provide a positive experience, says new research from QUT researchers. Consumer behaviour experts from QUT Business School investigated the effectiveness of the official tourism website, Visit London, for tourists choosing the city as a destination to explore. Their findings, published in the Journal of Strategic Marketing, have implications for the travel industry in Australia and overseas amid an emerging trend to 'personify' places to build long-term bonds with tourists.
A team of researchers from Cologne and New York presents proposals for the traffic management of the future. A dynamic and fair toll for road use could reduce congestion.
Even when people have well-connected social networks beyond their home cities and across state lines, they are still most frequently interacting with people who are geographically nearby. That is one of the major outcomes of an expansive, 16-month study of more than 51 million geo-tagged tweets generated by more than 1.7 million Twitter users across the United States. The study was funded, in part, by the National Science Foundation.
The study replicates and extends prior research on the effectiveness of using driving simulators to detect and mitigate risky behaviors.
A new study from a team of researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing found that in the previous three months, about half of parents talked on a cell phone while driving when their children between the ages of 4 and 10 were in the car, while one in three read text messages and one in seven used social media.
Tourism activity in areas with a rise in Airbnb rentals could spill over into complementary industries, such as the restaurant business, unless those neighborhoods are predominantly black or Hispanic, a new study suggests.
James Cook University researchers in Australia say the phenomenon of the 'digital-detox' is on the rise and could be an important part of the tourism industry in the future.
The study 'Contribution of MOTs to road safety and the protection of citizens' health and the environment,' conducted by the Motor Vehicle Safety Institute 'Duque de Santomauro' of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, reveals that the Ministry of Transport tests (MOTs) prevent 133 deaths, nearly 12,000 injuries of differing severity and at least 17,700 traffic accidents a year.
Teenage drivers are eight times more likely to be involved in a collision or near miss during the first three months after getting a driver's license, compared to the previous three months on a learner's permit, suggests a study led by the National Institutes of Health.
