LOS ANGELES Authentic Johnathan Abram Jersey , July 17 (Xinhua) -- An international research team suggests that humans are hardwired to favour leaning to the right while kissing their romantic partners, which may have wider implications for neuroscience and cognitive sciences.

According to the new academic study Authentic Josh Jacobs Jersey , just published in the journal Scientific Reports, over two-thirds of the kiss initiators and the recipient of the kiss have a bias to turn their heads to the right and men were about 15 times more likely than women to initiate kissing.

Psychologists and neuroscientists at the universities of Bath Spa and Dhaka Authentic Clelin Ferrell Jersey , Bangladesh, invited 48 married couples to kiss privately in their own homes Nick Nelson Jersey , and after kissing they were asked to go to different rooms, open an envelope and then report on various aspects of the kiss independently of each partner.

The setting for the study was significant as kissing in Bangladesh is not typically observed in public and may censored from television or films. That means similar results from the western countries could be attributed to cultural factors or having learnt how to kiss through influences on TV or film.

According to a press release on Monday Arden Key Jersey , building on the previous studies from western countries, which have involved couples kissing in public places Brandon Parker Jersey , the new study is the first to investigate an inherent bias for turning the head to one side while people kiss in a non-western context. And it is also the first study in the world to show that the kiss recipients have a tendency to match their partners' head-leaning direction.

"Head turning is one of the earliest biases seen in development - even in the womb a preference for turning the head to the right is observable before that of favouring the right hand or foot. Whether this fundamental bias is innate and extends into adulthood is a lingering question for neuroscience and psychology," Dr Rezaul Karim Johnny Townsend Jersey , lead author from the Department of Psychology at the University of Dhaka, said in a statement.

The new research suggests that the act of kissing is determined by the brain splitting up tasks to its different hemispheres. Different hormone levels in each hemisphere and neurotransmitters might be unevenly distributed to each hemisphere as giving rise to a bias to turn right P.J. Hall Jersey , researchers say.

NAIROBI, April 18 (Xinhua) -- Peaceful elections in Africa, a continent that had been haunted by election-related violence, have started becoming a reality, hence guaranteeing continued stability and development.

The latest case is presidential elections in Chad on April 10. Having been in power for 26 years, President Idriss Deby Itno is seeking his fifth consecutive five-year term against 12 opposition challengers.

This year alone, over 10 African countries have held various elections, most of which were concluded peacefully. In addition to Chad, those that held presidential elections include Benin, Niger, Uganda, Republic of Congo, Djibouti and Comoros Island.

Africa, a continent with the largest number of developing countries in the world, had been labeled as "the hopeless continent" by some western media outlets until 2000. In slightly over a decade, with its robust economic growth and gradual geopolitical stability, the narrative has changed to "Africa rising."

Despite a dark electoral past, recent electoral contests on the continent have generally been peaceful. The acceptance of the results by both winners and losers is a pointer to political modernization on the continent. Those elections, however, are by no means easy given most African countries' colonial experience.

For starters, maintaining a sound momentum of economic growth is a basis for peaceful elections as peace reduces uncertainty and risk, hence positively contributing to economic growth. The World Bank said in its 2016 growth forecast that sub-Saharan Africa countries sustained a robust 6.8 percent growth in Gross Domestic Product in the 2003-2008 period.

Secondly, acceptance by many incumbents to leave power after their constitutional terms also contributed to stability and development on the continent.

Muhammadu Buhari, candidate of Nigeria's opposition All Progressives Congress, was declared president after defeating then President Goodluck Jonathan in Nigeria's presidential election in 2015. For the first time, a challenger defeated a sitting president in the high-stakes contest to govern Africa's most populous country.

The election is widely hailed by regional and international organizations as political observers said Nigeria had shown a good example for the sub-region by setting a standard for other countries awaiting elections.

Thirdly, increased election monitoring and reporting by the African Union, regional bodies as well as civil society groups are also of great importance for a peaceful election.

A recent appeal by AU Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma for peaceful and transparent polls in African countries should be heeded, as this will undoubtedly protect st.
