Studies Show Cat People Are Smarter Than Dog People

first_imgTime:Have you ever suspected that people who hang out with slinky, clever, moody cats are actually smarter than everyone with a goofy, friendly-to-everyone dog? Your hunch was likely correct, according to a new study carried out by Carroll University in Wisconsin. The study looked for personality traits in 600 college students that coincided with choices in pet ownership. Dog lovers tended to be more lively, but cat owners were “non-conformists” who preferred expediency to following the rules.Cat lovers also scored higher on intelligence over all. So is the cat educating you, or do you just have to be smart to adequately care for such a mercurial animal?Read the whole story: Time More of our Members in the Media >last_img

Tainton hails ‘world class’ training facility

first_img‘A massive boost’The state-of-the-art facility welcomed players and staff for stage two of rugby union’s return to play training process – although it is yet to be completed fully – and the CEO says it provides ‘a massive boost’ for the Bears.”When you drive down the long driveway, through the trees and get the first sight of the building, it takes you aback. I’ve been blown away – and I’ve been working on it every week for the last year. For the players to see it finished, or nearly finished, it’s amazing – they’re delighted, and they were blown away too.“It’s a massive boost to everyone involved in the club that we’ve come to this new facility – and in fairness to the main construction company, Beard, they’ve done a tremendous job.“I’d also like to thank Steve May from Capita, who’s been on the job with me for the last year, for his involvement – he’s been superb.’No excuses’“We’re at stage two so this only certain things we can do. We’ve got restrictions on what the players can and can’t do at the moment, but hopefully in the coming months, we’ll get past stage two and into stage three and we can utilise the building to its full potential.“If you look at the branding around the building, Jon Lansdown has done a fantastic job designing it. As Steve Lansdown mentioned when he came here a number of months ago: you’ve got a great facility here, there’s no excuses for the players now.“With these facilities, certain pressures come, but I think they’ll embrace that. From what I’ve seen, the players have been very enthused and looking forward to the restart of the season.”last_img read more

Ten-man Celtic suffer huge blow to Europa League last 32 hopes

first_imgCeltic’s Europa League hopes suffered another blow following a 2-1 home defeat by Molde – and the spotlight will surely turn back on boss Ronny Deila.The offside flag deprived the Hoops of two goals in the first 12 minutes following the loss of Jozo Simunovic to injury before Mohamed Elyounoussi stunned Parkhead with a 20-yard drive.Midfielder Kris Commons levelled five minutes later but Molde’s 40-year-old skipper Daniel Hestad restored the Norwegian club’s lead in the 37th minute to give them the interval advantage.The hapless home side’s misery was compounded in the 77th minute when Nir Bitton, who had moved from midfield to defence in a reshuffle, was shown a straight red card by referee Slavko Vincic for a ‘last man’ tackle on Molde substitute Ola Kamara.Defeat kept Deila’s side bottom of Group A with two points from four games and with a home game against Ajax and a trip to Fenerbahce remaining, the Scottish champions require two wins to progress, an unlikely scenario on the evidence so far.
