There has been a whole lot of buzz since Sunday night’s Oscars.

A recent study at Edinburgh University proves that men have a harder time reading other people’s emotions than women do. Well, this explains a lot.
During the study, a group of both men and women were shown pictures of faces and asked numerous questions about them while their brains were scanned. When asked how approachable the people in a photograph seemed, the men took longer to respond. Though they eventually came up with the same results as the ... Read More
