每日英語跟讀 Ep.K412: About woman - A woman’s finger length may determine how strong they are, study says
Researchers found that women who have an index finger that’s shorter than their ring finger could actually have more strength.
The Austrian study looked specifically at handgrip strength and people’s 2D:4D ratios.
The 2D:4D ratio is the most studied digit ratio and is calculated by dividing the length of the index finger of a given hand by the length of the ring finger of the same hand.
Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, Biological Sciences, the experts found women with a lower 2D:4D ratio had higher strength grip than those with a higher ratio.
女子站在船的圍欄上自拍 遭郵輪公司終身禁搭 Woman who stood on ship’s railing for selfie barred for life from cruise line
A woman was removed from a cruise ship and banned for life by the cruise company after she climbed onto her room’s balcony railing to pose for a dangerous photo shoot over the ocean.
The incident happened on board the Royal Caribbean ship Allure of the Seas as it was approaching Labadee, Haiti.
The unnamed woman was spotted by a fellow passenger, Peter Blosic, who alerted the crew.
"While on my balcony, I saw the woman climb on her railing. It happened so quickly. Not knowing what her intentions were, I alerted the crew. If I said nothing, and she was going to jump, that would be horrible," he told CNN.
