How long were you breastfed?

Dominic Vanderzypen brought an interesting article about breastfeeding and IQ: http://www.theguardian.com/science/brain-flapping/2015/mar/18/breastfeed...

So I am wondering... How long were you breastfed?  

Those cathegories were chosen like this, since a baby can live only with milk up to 6 months and starts to eat other things from this time. The remaining cathegories were chosen purely arbitrarily.

Jass-Gruppe Zürich

Hallo Zusammen

Jonathan Hayes hat gerade die Idee eingebracht - nach dem erfolgreichen Jass-Workshop am EMAG - ob wir nicht eine Jass-Gruppe Zürich gründen könnten. Dies würde es vereinfachen spontane oder regelmässige Termine unter Gleichgesinnten zu finden um in der Region Zürich ab und zu einen zünftigen Jass zu klopfen. Was meint Ihr dazu? Wieviele würden sich spontan in einer solchen Gruppe eintragen?

Bin gespannt auf die Rückmeldungen.

Besten Dank und viele Grüsse

Manfred

(Jass-Instruktor am EMAG ;-)

Ja, super das wäre was für mich, darauf habe ich schon lange gewartet.

«Glass Road» wins «Mensa Preference 2014»!

For the third time, Mensa Switzerland awarded the game prize «Mensa Preference» for the best board game released in the last year.

In September the passionate game players in our High IQ Society started to test the games they liked best and which they deemed to deserve recognition for their complexity and the fun they provide. On January 1st a primary selection was presented, consisting of 10 games from all sorts of genres. In the middle of March, they decided on the five finalists.
