World Cup Loss = Domestic Violence

Researchers at Lancaster University found (through the time-table of three tournaments in 2002, 2006 and 2010) that domestic violence against women increased by 38% when England was knocked out of the World Cup.

For more information about this issue and how you can be involved in preventing domestic violence against women, visit Tender, an organization that is devoted to ending abuse for all people everywhere.

"Though research on the rise of domestic violence during the World Cup is relatively new and for lack of a better word, sparse, the trend is alarming and impossible to ignore.  The weather is getting warmer, more drinks will be consumed, emotions will be heightened, and none of this excuses violence. We ask that individuals and organisations to stand together this World Cup season and say ‘No excuses’." - Tender

Stunning photos of tears under a microscope vary by emotion

Follow policymic

"The project, called "The Topography of Tears," captures unique moments in human experience, but there’s also a scientific reason why every tear looks so different. There are three different types of tears: basal (lubricating), reflex (responding to stimuli) and psychic (triggered by emotion). Each type of tear contains different organic substances, and the molecular makeup depends on the causative agent. For instance, emotional tears contain the neurotransmitter leucine enkephalin, a natural painkiller that the body releases to mitigate stress."
