Violent video game engagement is not associated with adolescents' aggressive behaviour: evidence from a registered report | Royal Society Open Science
In this study, we investigated the extent to which adolescents who spend time playing violent video games exhibit higher levels of aggressive behaviour when compared with those who do not. A large sample of British adolescent participants (n = 1004) aged 14 and 15 years and an equal number of their carers were interviewed. Young people provided reports of their recent gaming experiences. Further, the violent contents of these games were coded using official EU and US ratings, and carers provided evaluations of their adolescents' aggressive behaviours in the past month. Following a preregistered analysis plan, multiple regression analyses tested the hypothesis that recent violent game play is linearly and positively related to carer assessments of aggressive behaviour. Results did not support this prediction, nor did they support the idea that the relationship between these factors follows a nonlinear parabolic function. There was no evidence for a critical tipping point relating violent game engagement to aggressive behaviour. Sensitivity and exploratory analyses indicated these null effects extended across multiple operationalizations of violent game engagement and when the focus was on another behavioural outcome, namely, prosocial behaviour. The discussion presents an interpretation of this pattern of effects in terms of both the ongoing scientific and policy debates around violent video games, and emerging standards for robust evidence-based policy concerning young people's technology use.

This British Television Presenter Can Barely Contain Disdain For Early 1970s American Offerings
Back around the end of 1973, with the fuel crisis looming, American carmakers were still optimistic about selling a few hundred examples of large-and-in-charge V8 machines to residents of the British Isles. As a result, the very English Tony Bastable rounded up the best of the American offerings in the UK for a discussion of their merits on Drive-in, a factual automotive television program at the time. Maybe it’s something of a precursor to Top Gear given its cynicism. The resulting six minute review is just so great.

Mike Pope on Twitter: "When editing non-American authors, I find it useful to do a few regex searches: [^y]ourW ... for words like "behaviour" iseW and isingW ... for words like "optimise" and "optimising" What else should I be looking for? #amediting"
This thread covers some potential regexes for to help with manually massaging British English into American English, such as—

... for words like "behaviour"

... for words like "optimise" and “optimising"

Double-l: traveller/travelled/travelling

// for British-style punctuation

// for “centre” and the like

// for paediatric and such—but keep in mind that “aesthetics” is okay in AmE

// for “sizeable” and the like

// for grey

// for “towards,” “backwards,” “afterwards,” and such

// for nonrestrictive “which,” which seems more prevalent in BrE
[a-zA-Z0-9]+ which

// for flagging dates for review
