>Good guys more violent in movies
A study presented at the ongoing annual American Academy of Pediatrics conference showed that the "good guys" in superhero movies were on average more violent than the villains, potentially sending a mixed or negative message to young viewers. The most common act of violence associated with protagonists in the films was fighting, followed by the use of a lethal weapon, destruction of property, murder, and bullying/intimidation/torture, according to the study's abstract. John N. Muller, the study's principal investigator, suggested families watched those movies together and discussed the consequences of violence actively with their children. "By taking an active role in their children's media consumption by co-viewing and actively mediating, parents help their children develop critical thinking and internally regulated values," he said.



>Scattering ashes at Disney parks
As the world biggest entertainment company, Disney has something of a following, so it shouldn't be much of a surprise some people want to stay in the theme parks... forever. As a report in the Wall Street Journal confirmed, some people really try to do that - by having loved ones scatter their remains. At Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, it happens so frequently staff members have a special code to call in when they spot any sign of cremains: "HEPA cleanup." Employees then come in with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, specifically designed for very fine particles like ash, and vacuum up the remains, possibly for disposal into a garbage bin.
作为世界最大的娱乐公司,迪士尼有狂热的粉丝,所以如果你听说有些人想留在迪士尼主题公园……直到永远,也不用感到惊讶。《华尔街日报》的一篇报道证实,有些人真的试图这样做——他们让亲人把自己的骨灰洒在迪士尼乐园。在加利福尼亚州阿纳海姆的迪士尼乐园和佛罗里达州奥兰多的沃尔特迪士尼乐园,撒骨灰的情况频繁发生,因此当工作人员发现任何有关骨灰的迹象时,就会发送特殊代码"HEPA cleanup"进行上报。然后就会有员工带着专门用于拾取细小颗粒的高效微粒空气过滤吸尘器(HEPA),吸走疑似骨灰的物质——最后可能倒进了垃圾箱。



>Kid's resume goes viral
An extensive resume by a kindergarten student became a hot topic on Chinese social media. Posted in the form of a 15-page PDF document, the resume gives a comprehensive overview of the child's relatively short history. The document appears to be part of some application materials for an international primary school. "I was born in a family where both parents are graduates from Fudan University," the child proudly states of his family background in the first part. The boy moves on to describe himself as "confident, considerate, and strong". He also explains how he excelled in four things - literature and history, science and math, arts, and sports. "I write three English essays per week to express my feelings," he says, adding he has a variety of hobbies outside school, such as piano, hip-hop dance, soccer, and Go. The five-year-old also says he read over 500 English books in the past year. At the end of the resume, there are five pages listing all the English books he has read so far. This viral resume offers an intriguing glimpse into China's hyper-competitive education system, where getting into an elite primary school has become more cutthroat than ever.



>Radiation linked to cancers
A long-running US study on the effects of radio wave radiation, the sort emitted by mobile phones, has found "clear evidence" of a link between high levels of exposure and heart cancers in male rats. Some evidence of links to brain and adrenal gland tumors was also found in male rats, but in female rodents and male mice signs of cancer weren't clear, the National Toxicology Program (NTP) concluded in its final report. The program is run by the US Department of Health and Human Services and was tasked with reviewing the toxicity of mobile phone radiation in response to the devices' near ubiquity in modern life.
