Improved environment for cyclists
The Investigation of Cycling presented last Wednesday several proposals to the Swedish government on improving cycling. The aim is to simplify the lives of cyclists by making better roads and cycle parks. One of the proposals is that children should be allowed to ride on the sidewalk. Another one suggests cyclists having priority at crossroads.
The Investigation of Cycling also urges The Transport Administration to review the chaos around Malmö C and Lund C, as procedures for bicycle parking must be improved in these areas.
The propositions are expected to come into force in July 2016th.
Telepathy is possible, according to university professor
A study, which can be read in the latest issue of Lund university magazine, has brought an outcry in Sweden. The professor of parapsychology, Etzel Cardeña, at Lund university, claims his studies shows that telepathy is possible. Several scientists angrily argues that there’s no evidence that supports his research. There has been critic towards the professor, since he used himself as a human test subject in the experiment. He also allowed people who believed in telepathy and who stood close to each other to participate. Cardeña himself says that the criticism is absurd and refers the critics to read his research report.
