A new study from the University of British Columbia has shed light on why people crave forbidden fruit. The study showed that when people are forbidden from something, it takes on a new level of focus. "Our findings show that when individuals are forbidden from everyday objects, our minds and brains pay more attention to them," said lead author Grace Truong, a graduate student in UBC's Dept. of Psychology. "Our brains give forbidden objects the same level of attention as our own personal possessions," Truong added.

 Canada's multi-billion dollar exports to Saudi Arabia are on the line as the two countries air their differences over tensions in the Middle East. Riyadh says it is angry over the top level visit by a Canadian government official in April to occupied East Jerusalem. The visit is at odds with conventional western protocol where government officials avoid visits to the city, a major point of dispute between Israel and Palestine. Saudi Arabia is also upset at Canada's steadfastness in its support of Israel, and its opposition to the granting of Observer Status by the UN to the Palestinians. Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird made a visit to East Jerusalem in April and caused more angst by visiting the Israel Defense Force base in the occupied Golan Heights.
