Honorary Doctorate for Bishop Johan Bonny

At a ceremony held yesterday evening at the Forum Internationale Wissenschaft (FIW) in Bonn, the Bishop of Antwerp was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Bonn in recognition of his hard work and dedication to the synodal process within the Catholic Church and to consolidating its teaching on marriage, the family and other forms of relationship. The major honor was conferred on him by Prof. Dr. Dr. Jochen Sautermeister, Professor of Moral Theology and Dean of the Faculty of Catholic Theology. 

Sweet snacks: Children have very different preferences

Would third- and fourth-graders buy fewer unhealthy snacks if they were more expensive? The answer provided by researchers at the University of Bonn is nuanced: Some elementary school students do actually pay attention to the price. Others, however, have such strong preferences that they are willing to pay a little more for them. A third group, in contrast, does not yet seem to have sufficient cognitive skills to be significantly influenced by prices. The study illustrates above all how differently children behave when it comes to their snack purchases - a finding that should also be of interest to policymakers. The results have now been published in the journal "Food Quality and Preference."
