Online parental training may help to improve behaviour in children
Online parental training led to reasonable improvements in behaviour problems in children and young people, compared to no training.

Online training had similar outcomes to face-to-face training. The review identified 14 studies of online training and tested ten different ways of training parents.

‘Going Down In a Blaze of Glory.’ The Brief, Crusading Life of the Cambodia Daily
Phann Ana represents the best of everything the Cambodia Daily stood for. In 17 years at the newspaper — which Cambodia’s strongman prime minister cruelly snuffed out in early September — Ana championed poor villagers persecuted by the country’s acquisitive oligarchy, investigated political murders, and exposed illegal logging and grand corruption, again and again and again. He worked his keyboard with a malicious grin and his sources with an unmistakable soprano chortle. He seemed able to retrieve internal documents from government ministries as easily as if they came from his own desk drawer. &ldq...

The True Story Behind the Battle of the Sexes Movie
The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs was a spectacle made for Hollywood. King was at the top of her game, the first female player to win over $100,000 in a year. Riggs was an over-the-hill showboat and self-declared chauvinist pig with a gambling problem. Riggs hoped for one last minute of fame, King to prove that women deserved as much prize money and respect as men. Ninety million people tuned into “The Battle of the Sexes,” and 44 years later Emma Stone and Steve Carrell are bringing the match to the big screen.

When Andy Rubin sold his startup Android to Google in 2005, the tech landscape looked vastly different.
