Brain training app could help people with schizophrenia | Reuters

LONDON A "brain training" iPad game developed in Britain may improve the memory of patients with schizophrenia, helping them in their daily lives at home and at work, researchers said on Monday. Scientists at Cambridge University said tests on a small number of patients who played the game over four weeks found they had improvements in memory and learning. The game, "Wizard", is designed to help so-called episodic memory -- the type of memory needed to remember where you left your keys several hours ago, or to remember a few hours later where you parked your car in a multi-storey car park #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Floods #Entertainment

Libya investigates video of guards beating jailed Gaddafi son| Reuters

TRIPOLI Libya's state prosecutor is seeking to identify guards shown in a video apparently beating a son of Muammar Gaddafi held in a Tripoli prison, his office said on Monday. The video was posted a week after a Tripoli court sentenced another of Gaddafi's sons, Saif al-Islam, and eight former regime officials to death over crimes during the 2011 uprising that toppled his father, who was later captured and killed by rebels. The video appears to show guards goading and beating Saadi Gaddafi, 42, who was extradited to Libya by Niger last year. #Business #United States #Technology #Entertainment #opinion

Insight - Breaking taboo, Jerusalem Palestinians seek Israeli citizenship| Reuters

JERUSALEM "I declare I will be a loyal citizen of the state of Israel," reads the oath that must be sworn by all naturalised Israeli citizens. Increasingly, they are words being uttered by Palestinians. In East Jerusalem, which Israel captured from Jordan during the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed, a move not recognised internationally, issues of Palestinian identity are layered with complexity. #Technology #France #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion

UNITED NATIONS The United Nations 193-member states agreed on Sunday on an agenda for the world's sustainable development over the next 15 years that pledges to leave no-one behind and is now due to be formally adopted by world leaders at a summit in September. After two weeks of final negotiations and several all-night sessions, the sustainable development agenda of 17 goals and a declaration that covers implementation and review were agreed by consensus to replace eight Millennium Development Goals.

U.S. Democrats see fire wall holding to preserve Iran deal| Reuters

WASHINGTON U.S. backers of the Iran nuclear deal are increasingly confident of enough Democratic support to ensure it survives review by Congress, despite fierce opposition by majority Republicans and a massive lobbying drive. By the time the House of Representatives recessed for the summer last week, no senior Democrat in the chamber had come out formally against the agreement and several central figures, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, were strongly in favor. #India #Congress #markets #Iran #United Kingdom #Entertainment
