    Young children spanked by their parents may perform better at school later on and grow up to be happier, according to a controversial new study that is drawing scorn from critics. The U.S.-based research states that spanking children up to six years old made them more successful in school, more optimistic about life, more likely to take voluntary work, and more keen to attend university than their never-spanked counterparts.

    Spanking can get kids to behave in a hurry, but new research suggests it can do more harm than good to their noggins. The study, involving hundreds of U.S. children, showed the more a child was spanked the lower his or her IQ compared with others. "All parents want smart children," said study researcher Murray Straus of the University of New Hampshire. "This research shows that avoiding spanking and correcting misbehavior in other ways can help that happen." One might ask, however, whether children who are spanked tend to come from backgrounds in which education opportunities are less or inherited...

    A SCUNTHORPE man who admitted bruising his wife's buttocks with a slipper, claimed she had developed an interest in spanking, North Lincolnshire Magistrates' Court heard. Rebecca Dolby, prosecuting, said the assault took place on August 9, at the Eastfield Road home of Mark and Rebecca Gibbons.

Gibbons pushed his wife onto the bed and used the cork-soled sandal to assault her. Mrs Gibbons protested about the assault, declaring: "Ow -...

    An appeals court has overturned a $1.5 million verdict awarded to a woman who was spanked in front of co-workers in what her employer called a camaraderie-building exercise. A jury in 2006 had ruled that Janet Orlando had suffered sexual harassment and sexual battery when she was paddled on the rear end at home security company Alarm One Inc. The jury punished the company with a $1 million punitive damage award. But on Monday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the state Court of Appeal overturned that verdict, ruling that the jury had been given improper instructions. In particular, the jury...

    FRESNO, Calif. - Lawyers for a woman who was spanked in front of her co-workers as part of what her employer said was a camaraderie-building exercise asked a jury Wednesday for at least $1.2 million for the humiliation she claimed to have suffered.

Employees were paddled with rival companies' yard signs as part of a contest that pitted sales teams against each other, according to court documents. The winners poked fun at the losers, throwing...

    Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist first announced today that he was finished calling votes on John R. Bolton's nomination as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, calling it a pointless exercise. But about an hour later, after a meeting with President Bush, the Tennessee Republican did an about-face: He will continue pushing for a floor vote on the controversial nominee after all. "The president made it very clear that he expects an up-or-down vote," Frist told reporters in the White House driveway after he joined other GOP lawmakers for a luncheon with Bush. "It's not dead." The Senate majority leader...

    After a chase through Harvard Square, Cambridge Police Department (CPD) officers arrested a man at around 7 p.m. yesterday for allegedly masturbating in public view in a Mt. Auburn Street window. The suspect will now be questioned about alleged “lewd and lascivious behavior,” according to Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) spokesperson Steven G. Catalano. While the case falls under CPD jurisdiction, Catalano said that an HUPD officer who was in the area at the time assisted in the arrest. The arrest came after a chase that started in the area around Peet’s Coffee and Tea at 100 Mt. Auburn St....

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) - In an upset as historic as it was inevitable, Tim Duncan, Allen Iverson and the rest of the U.S. basketball team lost 92-73 to Puerto Rico on Sunday, only the third Olympic defeat ever for the Americans. It was also the most lopsided loss in the games for the U.S. team, alarming not only for its significance but also for its decisiveness. Puerto Rico, which had lost to the Americans five times in the past 13 months, took control in the first half, led by 22 at halftime and gamely held off a fourth-quarter comeback for...
