We’re very liberal when it comes to choices of beverages or conversation topics. You just bring yourself and leave the rest to us.

Who should attend:
You’ve just started learning German and you would like to practice some more? You’ve been to Berlin once and want to know now if your impressions were only based on stereotypes? You simply like all the friendly people at the German department and you would like to get to know them better? Then this is the place and the time for you!

Targeted computer games can change behavior of psychopaths

Yale Science News - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 9:02am
Psychopaths generally do not feel fear and fail to consider the emotions of others, or reflect upon their behavior — traits that make them notoriously difficult to treat. However, a study published Dec. 18 in Clinical Psychological Science suggests it may be possible to teach psychopaths to consider emotion and other pieces of information when they make decisions. The results could form the basis of treatment for this group of dangerous prisoners — 7 of 10 of whom go on to commit new crimes after being released.

Engineers use liquid drops to make solids stiffer

Yale Science News - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 1:40pm
Engineers at Yale University have discovered that the stiffness of liquid drops embedded in solids has something in common with Goldilocks: While large drops of liquids are softer than the solid that surrounds them, extremely tiny drops of liquid can actually be stiffer than certain solids. But when they’re “just right,” the liquid drops have the exact same stiffness as the surrounding solid.
