A fascinating study from researchers at the University of North Florida reveals that running barefoot may actually improve your memory more than running with shoes. While most memory studies seem to take place in a laboratory or room where everyone sits at a table, this experiment definitely introduced an interesting idea to the search for a better memory. The experiment focused on something called "working memory," which is the human ability to process information and recall details throughout life. The scientists published the results of their study in "Perceptual and Motor Skills," and found that running barefoot resulted in a not-insignificant memory boost when compared with memory performance after running with shoes. The researchers found that tossing your shoes off and running for about 16 minutes at a comfortable pace could result in a 16% improvement in working memory performance.

Regardless of whether or not you think Snapchat is worth the $3 billion Facebook offered it, one thing is clear: There's an appetite out there for so-called ephemeral networks, where content literally vanishes seconds after being received. And, contrary to popular perception, this isn't just about sexting and X-rated selfies (though it definitely is about that, too). As content on the major networks becomes more corporate and commoditized, Snapchat and services like it restore some of the fun and spontaneity to social media. Just like a real-life interaction -- where ideas flow freely and you generally don't worry about everything being recorded for posterity and broadcast to the world -- SnapChat and networks like it offer a channel for genuine, unfiltered exchange. And the kids really like it. While Facebook's own CFO officially acknowledged last month that teen use of his network is declining, the number of teens on SnapChat -- at least anecdotally -- is exploding.

Denmark, for instance, is 88 percent white Danish today — hardly a majority in jeopardy. But a generation ago, in 1980, it was 97 percent white. The anti-immigrant Danish People’s Party is now the second-largest party in the Danish Parliament. In Germany, where the foreign-born population shot up by approximately 75 percent between 2011 and 2015, the anti-immigrant, populist Alternative for Germany party is now drawing record support.

Catch up on the past 24 hours

Welcome back: Chanie Stamford woke her daughters Mkinnley, 6, and Saniyah, 11, at 6 a.m. on Friday and told them to shower, eat breakfast and get dressed.  Bright and early, they were up for an extraordinary first day of school: online, and at home. Seattle Public Schools (SPS), the state’s largest school district, kicked off its “soft start” to school Friday. There are no immediate plans to resume learning in-person.

Glitches galore: SPS students spent a few hours Friday getting to know their teachers and classmates over Microsoft Teams, but many families reported difficulty getting on the platform. Some said they were booted out of class calls or couldn’t access certain features such as the chat window or view camera feeds.

Money moves: Small and medium-sized Washington cities and counties that didn’t get coronavirus relief money directly from the federal government were given nearly $190 million this week from the state’s share of the funding. Details here.

We're No. 5: Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, more people have been taking daily walks or finding creative ways to work out at home. According to a study by Quote Wizard, outdoorsy Washington ranks fifth nationally on a list of states with the highest percentage of physically active people. The study used Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

Biden tested: Joe Biden said Friday that he’d been tested at least once for the virus that causes COVID-19 and promised he will be tested regularly during his general election campaign against President Donald Trump. The Democratic nominee also blasted Trump for downplaying the coronavirus and thus ensuring that it will continue to kill Americans and ravage the economy.

Labor Day spike? Americans headed into the Labor Day weekend amid warnings from public health officials not to make the same mistakes they did over Memorial Day and July Fourth. Some officials fear that backyard parties, crowded bars and other gatherings will cause the coronavirus to come surging back.

Death toll: The global death toll from the coronavirus pandemic could triple by year’s end, with an additional 1.9 million deaths, while a fall wave of infections could drive fatalities in the United States to 410,000, according to a new forecast from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

WHO promise: The head of the World Health Organization said the agency will not recommend any coronavirus vaccine before it is proved safe and effective, even as Russia and China have started using their experimental vaccines and other countries have proposed streamlining authorization procedures.
