Chile's lawmakers take key step towards decriminalising abortion| Reuters

SANTIAGO Chile took a step towards easing its strict abortion ban on Tuesday after legislators in the nation's lower chamber voted to advance a bill that would overturn the prohibition. Amid applause from the gallery, the Health Commission of Chile's Chamber of Deputies voted eight to five to move forward on President Michelle Bachelet's landmark proposal to allow pregnancy terminations in certain circumstances. To become law, the bill will still need to win simple majorities in both the Chamber and the Senate, which could be difficult as the project faces significant opposition in both houses. #markets #Chile #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment

Young fathers face raised health risks in middle age - study | Reuters

NEW YORK First-time dads in their early 20s may have the energy and agility to keep up with their young children, but a new study shows early fatherhood can pose perils later in life. Research by Finnish researchers showed that becoming a father before the age of 25 is linked to a higher chance of dying in middle age. "Men who have a child before the age of 22 have a very clear higher midlife mortality than men who have children later, at an average age of 25 to 26," said Dr. #India #Middle East #Health #Europe #markets #Latin America #Entertainment

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
