Students learn more from teachers who hand-wave

Math teachers who wave their hands while talking in a way that illustrates a point differently from their words impart more information to their students. The UChicago researchers determined that students whose teachers hand-wave learn more, and that when the hand-gestures illustrated a point to one side of the main point, they did even better.

A recent study suggests that unattractive individuals commit more crime than people who are average or good looking. Researchers from the University of Colorado and Georgia State University determined this based on a survey of 15,000 teenagers interviewed in 1994 and again in 1997 and 2002.

France rapped over human rights

French police are accused of operating with a sense of impunity
France's law enforcement and prison system have been sharply criticised by Europe's human rights watchdog.

The Council of Europe found prisons were overcrowded and police operated with a sense of impunity, according to excerpts from a report due next week.

The council's human rights commissioner Alvaro Gil-Robles said there was a 'widening gap' between the 'text of law and what is actually practiced'.
