New study shows Transcendental Meditation reduces PTSD in South African college students
(Maharishi University of Management) A study published in Psychological Reports showed that after 3.5 months of practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM), most of the 34 tertiary-level students at Maharishi Institute (MI) -- all of whom were initially diagnosed with PTSD by mental health professionals -- went below clinical thresholds as measured by standard assessments. Students also experienced relief from depression. A comparison group from University of Johannesburg (UJ) with the same diagnosis received no treatment and showed no change in their symptoms.

Why North Carolinian boats are fishing off New Jersey's coast -- and how a CSF might help
(Princeton University) By studying the logbooks of fishing boats, Princeton postdoctoral research scholar Talia Young and colleagues found that some fishing boats travel more than 250 miles to catch the fish that used to be in local waters. In response, Young began investigating how local community supported fishery programs -- like farm shares for fish -- can affect fishing communities. That resulted in the creation of Fishadelphia, a CSF based in a South Philadelphia charter school.

WeDraw: A new multi-sensory teaching method for math and geometry by using dance and music
(Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT) WeDraw's main goal was to improve the understanding of STEM disciplines by identifying a new multi-sensory teaching method. Teachers usually considered the sight as the prevalent sensory channel to transmit mathematical concepts, leaving out hearing and touch. Monica Gori's group at IIT showed that before 8-10 years of age children have their own preferred sensory channel. The project realized serious games where fractions, angles and 3D trasformations are associated with sounds, vibrations and body movements
