TORONTO, ON – The AMG Driving Academy is expanding its global network with the addition of a new North American destination for its signature AMG Winter Sporting program. Formerly only offered in Sweden, close to the Polar Circle, driving enthusiasts will now be able to experience a selection of high- performance AMG vehicles on the icy surface of Lake Winnipeg in Gimli, Manitoba. Known for its Icelandic roots, where merciless winter conditions prevail, the small town of Gimli, Manitoba harbours a secret that will entice every driving aficionado. During the program, Lake Winnipeg will be trans- formed into an uncompromising, frozen terrain where adrenaline-charged curves and apexes modeled from world-famous racetracks like Laguna Seca, Mosport and Mont-Tremblant will be recreated in milled ice. This will be the perfect environment to tackle hard, glistening sheets of ice and snow drifts in Mercedes-AMG performance vehicles donned with studded tires. The Canadian AMG Winter Sporting program was jointly designed and curated by the AMG Driving Academy group in Affalterbach and by Driving Unlimited, a long-time partner of Mercedes-Benz Canada. Driving Unlimited manages and operates all of Mercedes-Benz’s other highly successful advanced Mercedes-Benz and AMG Driving Academy programs across Canada. The team, comprised of some of the most qualified instructors in the industry, will ensure that each participant receives the highest level of training and enjoys an experience on and off the ice that is truly commensurate with the AMG brand. The three-day AMG Winter Sporting ADVANCED and four-day AD- VANCED PLUS programs will be alternating from January 30 to February 27. Participants will gain valuable experience with controlled driving safety and dynamics through theoretical training, driving exercises, video analysis, and perfection training that will culminate in a final AMG “Race of Champions.” Both programs also provide exclusive access to a special onsite AMG lounge. More information is available by emailing email@example.com or by calling 1.877.577.6232. “For many years, the AMG Driving Academy has been a resounding success story with thousands of AMG customers who have attended its different programs in Canada and around the world. Canada is world-renowned for its natural beauty, its many lakes and, in some parts of the country, its piercing cold and highly challenging driving conditions. We were not entirely surprised when AMG in Germany knocked on our door requesting assistance with this great winter driving opportunity.
WASHINGTON, (IANS) Curiosity could be an effective tool to entice people into making smar ter and healthier decisions, a recent study has revealed. "Our research shows that arousing people's curiosity can influence their choices by steering them away from tempting desires, like unhealthy foods or taking the elevator and toward less tempting, but healthier options, such as buying more fresh produce or taking the stairs," said Evan Polman, researcher at University of Wisconsin-Madison, in a statement. Polman and his colleagues conducted experiments to test how raising people's curiosity might affect their choices. In each case, arousing curiosity resulted in a noticeable behaviour change. For the study, the researchers approached 200 people and gave them a choice between two for tune cookies-- one plain and one dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Half the par ticipants were given no additional information and
half were told that the plain cookie contains a for tune that the researchers would reveal. Par ticipants whose curiosity aroused (i.e who were told that the plain cookie contained a for tune) overwhelmingly chose the plain cookie by 71 per cent. In contrast, when par ticipants were told nothing, 80 per cent chose the chocolate-dipped cookie. "By telling people if they choose the ordinary cookie they'll learn something about themselves via the for tune inside of it, it piqued their curiosity, and therefore they were more likely to pick the plain cookie over the more tempting chocolate-dipped option," Polman added. While researchers were not surprised that curiosity could change behaviour, they were surprised at the overall strength of the effect. The results suggested that using interventions based on curiosity gaps has the potential to increase par ticipation in desired behaviours for which people often lack motivation.

NEW YORK, (IANS) Decreasing ability among women to produce healthy eggs as they become old may be due to excessive scarring and inflammation in their ovaries, repor ts a new study. In this study, published in the journal Reproduction, scientists exam- ined the reproductive age-related changes that occur in the environ- ment in which the eggs develop, known as the ovarian stroma and shows how the ageing of ovarian environment affects the quality of eggs it produces. "Under the microscope, eggs from reproductively young and old ani- mals may look identical, but the environment in which they are grow- ing is completely different. Ovaries from reproductively old mice are fibrotic and inflamed. Environment impacts the growth of eggs and leads to decrease in quality," said Francesca Duncan, researcher, Nor thwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. In this study, researchers analysed ovarian tissue from populations of reproductively 'young' (equivalent to women in their early twen- ties) and 'old' mice (equivalent to women ages 38-45). They consistently identified fibrosis in the reproductively 'old' mice. This age period is associated with a decline in reproductive function and egg quality in both humans and mice. Ovarian fibrosis is a key feature of polycystic ovary syndrome, a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. Researchers also found a type of immune cell (multinucleated
macrophage giant cells) in the ovaries of reproductively 'old' mice only. When found in other tissues, these cells are associated with chronic inflammation. They also found ovaries from mice of advanced reproductive age expressed genes and produced proteins that are highly inflammatory. "Our work establishes fibrosis and inflammation as hallmarks of the ageing ovary and lays the foundation for considering the use of anti- fibrotic or anti-inflammatory treatments to delay or counteract the impact of reproductive ageing," added Duncan. These findings could result in new treatments that preserve fer tility by delaying ovarian aging.
Focus on future to stop impulsive use of credit card NEW YORK, (IANS) Are you not able to save money because of an impulsive urge to use credit cards? If yes, you need not necessarily have to cut up your card as new research suggests that focusing more on the future may help you reduce impulsiveness and make better financial decisions. Simple visualisation and writing exercises designed to help people create vivid, detailed mental pictures of their future helps them to improve their financial behaviours and ultimately
their lives, the study said. "Our results suggest that by helping people to create vivid, detailed mental pictures of their future, we may be able to help them take better financial decisions," said Sarah Newcomb, Behavioural Economist at Chicago-based investment man- agement firm Morningstar. "We wanted to better understand the psychological factors that drive consumer spending and saving with the hope of identifying and tar-
geting those that could potentially motivate more savings and in- vestments among people who have adequate resources but poor f inancial management ski l ls," she said. In the study, Newcomb and her colleagues conducted an online survey of over 700 adults in the US. Par t ic ipants were asked questions designed to measure financial behaviours as well as attitudes known to be associated with saving or spending, includ- ing impulsiveness, materialism, fi- nancial literacy and the extent to which they think about the future. As expected, the researchers found that high levels of impulsiveness and materialism were associated with poor finan- cia l decis ion-making (more spending, less saving).
Some tattoo myths busted NEW DELHI, (IANS) Want to get a tattoo, but have several doubts? The pain is not un- bearable and your inking won't fade with time, say experts. Vikas and Mickey Malani, Co-founders of Bodycanvas Tattoos, bust some myths associated with the art of tattooing: * Can't donate blood: It's only the first three months that you cannot donate blood. After that you can donate blood. * Tattoo cannot be removed: Tattoo can be removed through a laser treatment leaving no scars behind. * Tattoo will fade when you get old: Tattoo needs maintenance. You need to moisturise your tattoo at least once in a day. * Skin allergy and blood poisoning: People have a mindset that getting a tattoo can lead to skin allergies. With the right artist and hygiene factor, it doesn't come up as a problem. * People who are below 18 years cannot get a tattoo: You can s
