    Narcissists are more likely to be politically active, according to a new research. Researchers found individuals who displayed classic narcissistic traits - like selfishness, entitlement and a need for admiration - were more likely to sign petitions, reach out to elected officials and vote in midterm elections. People who were self-sufficient, however, were less likely to be politically engaged.  Peter Hatemi, a political science professor at Penn State University, said his findings may explain 'the current state of our democracy.' 'If people who are more interested in their own personal gain and status take a greater part in elections, then we can expect candidates to emerge who reflect their desires -- narcissism begets narcissism,' said Hatemi, whose research was published...

After 13 hours of overland transport, Amanaci arrived for care on Aug. 21 at the NEX Institute in the Brazilian state of Goias, where Gianni and other veterinarians have since been working to heal her.

    Crystal Cox/Business Insider Fasting for 16 hours a day may not make a significant difference for weight loss or other health measures such as blood sugar control, according to a new study.  Researchers found no difference in weight loss or metabolic health between people who fasted and a control group during a 12 week study, when both group consumed roughly the same amount of calories.  That suggests fasting may work only if it helps people cut calories.

    Two law enforcement experts said the majority of U.S. police departments train officers under a concept known as the “use of force continuum,” where tactics escalate if a situation becomes violent or a suspect becomes uncooperative.   Both of the training authorities agreed that officer discretion is a vital component of the continuum, as real world situations don’t always play out as intended.  The continuum has its flaws, as some officers are prone to escalate too quickly and others are reluctant to use a proper amount of force. Police are trained to evaluate situations to determine whether the use of deadly force with a firearm is necessary, but they often need to rely on situational discretion for scenarios...
