People apply rules of their spoken language to sign language: Study

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 8 : In contrary to popular belief that language is not limited to speech, a recent study reveals that people also apply the rules of their spoken language to sign language.

According to Northeastern University, language is not simply about hearing sounds or moving our mouths.

When our brain is "doing language," it projects abstract structure. The modality (speech or sign) is secondary.

"There is a misconception in the general public that sign language is not really a language," said researcher Iris Berent. "Part of our mandate, through the support of the NSF, is to reveal the complex structure of sign language, and in so doing, disabuse the public of this notion."

Will Trump have the last laugh courtesy blue collared whites?

New York [USA], Nov. 8 : Even as on Sunday, Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump 48 percent- 43 percent in a Washington Post/ABC tracking poll, 44 percent - 40 percent in an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll and 45 percent - 42 percent in a Politico/Morning Consult poll, the most recent surveys find that the win is still not very clear.

Is Trump following Obama's footsteps?

New York [USA], Nov. 8 : Comparing incumbent US President Barack Obama with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may look bizarre to any American. However, the duo indeed has something in common from a political perspective.

Trump has been reckless with his words in many of his speeches, leading many to believe that racism is at the core of his campaign while Obama being the first elected black President in the US history stands quite opposite to Trump's assertion so far.

But what Trump has said is on the same issues and frames that Obama raised in 2008 and 2012. The Republican nominee has, however, changed the story lines, writes the New York Times.

Are second opinions effective in prostate cancer care?

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 7 : A new analysis finds that many patients, suffering with prostate cancer, go for second opinions from urologists before getting treated, but surprisingly, these second opinions are not associated with changes in treatment choice or improvements in perceived quality of prostate cancer care.
