The New York Times:The widespread use of search engines and online databases has affected the way people remember information, researchers are reporting.The scientists, led by Betsy Sparrow, an assistant professor of psychology at Columbia, wondered whether people were more likely to remember information that could be easily retrieved from a computer, just as students are more likely to recall facts they believe will be on a test.Dr. Sparrow and her collaborators, Daniel M. Wegner of Harvard and Jenny Liu of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, staged four different memory experiments. In one, participants typed 40 bits of trivia — for example, “an ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain” — into a computer. Half of the subjects believed the information would be saved in the computer; the other half believed the items they typed would be erased.The subjects were significantly more likely to remember information if they thought they would not be able to find it later. “Participants did not make the effort to remember when they thought they could later look up the trivia statement they had read,” the authors write.Read the whole story: The New York Times More of our Members in the Media >

Fall to fifth loss since start of season RUGBY LEAGUE BY FIDELIS SUKINA [email protected] RUGBY LEAGUE The SP PNG Hunters have slumped to their fifth loss this season after going down to the South Logan Magpies 20-12 at the Oil Search National Football Stadium but not without some controversy over some of referee Michael Gordon’s rulings. Hunters coach Michael Marum was disappointed with some of the penalties against the Hunters calling them “unfair”. Marum also admitted their performance was also to blame for the loss. “I am not blaming the referee. The effort was there. All throughout (the game) we made four errors in the first half but in the second half we didn’t finish the sets. The effort was there,” he said. “It’s always been tough playing against a strong side then again the ruling we have been really given a lot of penalties since round one and for us, as a team, we have tried our best to do the right thing playing along with the rules but it has just been unfair. “Again, we trained really well for this game. They were a strong side they are number three on the ladder but we had the ball we made them work but every time we gave away the ball or got penalized we had to defend really hard.” The Hunters were held at 12-12 by the Magpies in the first half, but remained scoreless in the second half with the Magpies surging to 20-12 at fulltime. The Hunters scored first through Edene Gabbie six minutes into the game; Edene pouncing on a loose ball ran 80m to score, with skipper Ase Boas converting the two points for a 6-0 lead. The Magpies were next to score after center Marion Seve toed a kick in to the Hunters’ try line and scored after a re-gather to level at 6-6 in the ninth minute. The Hunters looked cool with good ball control and complete sets, Ase Boas and Charlie Simon made good deep kicks into the Magpies try line, holding them off and making them work hard to return the ball. The Hunters organised sets paid off when Willie Minoga crossed over for the home side’s second try. Willie taking the ball from the ruck in the 10m line and headed into three Magpie defenders muscling his way for a converted try to take them to a 12-6 lead. With just 10 minutes before half time, the Magpies found the Hunters’ lacking in defense which saw interchange Jordan Scarlet dashing 30m through open space to score a converted try tying the score at 12-12 heading into half time. The Magpies Guy Hamilton converted a penalty kick in the 62nd minute taking the Magpies to a 14-12 lead. The Hunters were left miserable after a controversial penalty call. Wartovo Puara’s tackle on Magpies Sam Scarlett saw him losing the ball forward allowing Hunters Junior Rau to dash 90m only to be called back and a penalty awarded against the Hunters. The Magpies secured the win with Jordan Scarlet scoring a converted try off dummy half in the 75th minute to end the match at 20-12 at full time.
