For years, the idea that blood groups had any medical significance beyond blood transfusions was dismissed by scientists. Cheryl Cole, left, and Elizabeth Hurley, right, are both followers of the ‘blood group diet’ – the idea that different blood types process food differently But a growing number of studies is revealing how our blood groups may make us more prone to lethal illnesses — or even protect us from them. The latest research into blood types shows that having group O blood can lower your risk of heart attacks. Researchers at Pennsylvania University discovered this benefit in a study involving 20, people. Their research, to be published in The Lancet, found that most people who have a gene called Adamts7 face a significantly raised risk of suffering a heart attack. But in people with blood group O who have the Adamts7, there is no raised risk.

Practice[ edit ] Advertisement for a matchmaking service Chennai , India In some cultures, the role of the matchmaker was and is quite professionalized. The Ashkenazi Jewish shadchan , or the Hindu astrologer , were often thought to be essential advisors and also helped in finding right spouses as they had links and a relation of good faith with the families. In cultures where arranged marriages were the rule, the astrologer often claimed that the stars sanctified matches that both parents approved of, making it quite difficult for the possibly-hesitant children to easily object — and also making it easy for the astrologer to collect his fee.
However, when farming families were widely separated and kept all children on the farm working, marriage-age children could often only meet in church or in such mandated social events. Matchmakers, acting as formal chaperones or as self-employed ‘busybodies’ serving less clear social purposes, would attend such events and advise families of any burgeoning romances before they went too far.

A multidisciplinary research and teaching department of the University of Oxford, dedicated to the social science of the Internet. This is according to a major new study from the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford and eharmony , which tracked changing preferences and communication patterns among single Brits over the past decade. Despite marked changed to the online dating landscape — including the emergence of more app based platforms — researchers found that traditional gender roles and expectations persist.
Men also demonstrate more confidence in their selection of a potential partner, sending more messages to women with a self-rated attractiveness score of between Men and women who do so receive less messages overall. Despite these seemingly set gender roles, the report, led by Dr Taha Yasseri , did suggest that online daters are becoming much more progressive in other areas. Both sexes have become less concerned with the income or education level of a potential partner.
However, some interesting gender splits remain. For example, women consider the income of a potential match as more important than men, but the importance of this trait has decreased over time, possibly in line with increased financial parity. For men, displaying more photos increases the likelihood of receiving messages, as does scoring highly on athleticism, agreeableness and altruism.
For women, being athletic was the strongest predictor of online success, alongside being romantic or altruistic. Over indexing as anxious, or clever all decreased the likelihood of women receiving messages. This opportunity to revisit our relationship with eharmony after helping them launch in the UK a decade ago has produced fascinating results on both a micro and macro level.

Share 14 shares Once the two headsets were connected, Gottlieb calibrated the HoloLens controller to track the Vive controller – merging the two worlds into one. The battery lasts for about two to three hours, with up to two weeks of standby time, says Microsoft. HoloLens has ‘see-through holographic lens’ that use an optical projection system to create multi-dimensional full-colour holograms. According to Microsoft, ‘the key to a great holographic experience is holograms that are light point rich, they have a high holographic density and are pinned, or anchored, to the world around you.
In order to achieve this, the device has an optimal holographic density of 2. Gottlieb began working on a proof of concept by designing his own 3D painting app, which is similar to Tilt Brush, called HoloViveObserver Players also have the ability to collaborate using the same app, allowing them to build objects that hover in the air together.
Vive uses Kinect-style lasers to track even the smallest of body movements, letting players become fully immersed in their games. Kinect is a system designed by Microsoft for use with its Xbox games consoles. The technology can read up to six skeletons at once and its ‘small object detection’ is said to be two-and-a-half times better than previous models. This means it can identify small movements of the hand on a controller, for example.

The Bill seeks to amend the Construction Act to ensure retention money is held in a deposit protection scheme — thus ending the issue of upstream insolvency and the working capital it takes from the industry and SMEs. The Bill does not seek to abolish retentions completely, but to address the fact that this money is not protected from upstream insolvencies.
The retentions reform has been a long-standing issue for FETA as it supports its members, many of them SMEs, who have been affected during past and current construction projects. In December FETA was among 23 signatories on a letter from the ECA, published in the Daily Telegraph, which highlighted how poor payment practices in construction affect productivity, innovation and investment. Retention payments are a deeply contentious matter for many of our members and the fact this Bill has received support across parliament suggests it is beginning to gain the attention it warrants.
FETA will continue to work alongside other trade associations to ensure the reform reaches a satisfactory conclusion for all parties.
By Aaron Smith and Monica Anderson Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships. Here are five facts about online dating: When we first studied online dating habits in , most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating — and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive. Online dating use among to year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic. One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.

Twitter Since the fall, ISIS has stepped up its social media campaign especially in English and French directed at luring young Western women and teens to be their wives. The recruiting and matchmaking is most often spearheaded by women residing in the Islamic State. What many people don’t realize is that men within most Arab countries do not have access to women before marriage.
For the most part, there is no dating, no premarital sex and no fooling around. But marriage remains a costly endeavor, and most men don’t or can’t get married until their thirties. In fact, more than 50 percent of men aged remain unmarried because of the high cost. This has resulted in all kinds of stop-gap measures that confuse researchers who study gender and sexuality. It appears to have also resulted in more men engaging in same-sex practices.
This goes a long way towards explaining why so many men from the region are flocking to ISIS. While Belgium has a disproportionate number of foreign fighters and the media focuses on those leaving from North America and Europe, the vast majority of foreign fighters are more local and from the region. ISIS is an attractive option for men who are unemployed or underemployed and are highly motivated to find a spouse.
