Bullying among adolescents hurts both the victims and the perpetrators

(Martin-Luther-Universit ä t Halle-Wittenberg) About a tenth of adolescents across the globe have been the victim of psychological or physical violence from their classmates. In a new study researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) show that victims and their perpetrators both suffer as a result of these attacks: They are more inclined to consume alcohol and tobacco, are more likely to complain of psychosomatic problems and their chances of having problems with their social environment increase, too.

In this study, various nonionic surfactants (NS) with different ethylene oxide (EO) numbers and tail lengths and its binary blends with anionic surfactants (AS) were used as emulsifiers for naphthenic oil to form the microemulsion metalworking fluids (MWFs), and the effects of them on the stability of the emulsion system were investigated by formulation triangle method. The results indicated that binary complex surfactants of NS and AS as emulsifiers exhibited better emulsifying effect than that of single NS. NS with different EO numbers and tail lengths presented various emulsifying effects. NS (EO = 10) exh...

The effects of smoking and alcohol consumption were also examined. The comet tail length, % tail DNA, and Olive tail moment were significantly higher in pesticide-exposed workers compared to non-exposed controls. None of the damage parameters differed when control smokers and con...
