Zukünftig darf nur noch weniger als die Hälfte eines geschützten Werkes auf diesen Plattformen veröffentlicht werden. Zum Schutz vor nun verbotenen Uploads werden Filter und Fingerprinting benutzt.

**Exercise may boost kids’ vocabulary growth**

"Swimming a few laps likely won't turn your child into the next Katie Ledecky or Michael Phelps, but it just might help them become the next J.K. Rowling or Stephen King. A recent study suggests aerobic exercise, such as swimming, can boost kids' vocabulary growth."
