Scientists have found that running helps the brain to grow new cells.
The team at Cambridge University found the new brain cells grow in a place which is important for memory.
The result is that people can remember better and so can learn more efficiently. The research could also help older people to keep their brains working well.
The company which makes the UK’s favourite sweets and chocolates has been bought by the giant American company, Kraft.
Students in Britain will probably have eaten KitKat chocolate wafer bars and Galaxy chocolate, made by Cadbury. Another famous Cadbury product is the Crème Egg, a small chocolate egg filled with very sweet sticky liquid. Children love the Curly Wurly, which is a long curvy toffee covered in milk chocolate.
The sale of Cadbury will mean that many jobs are lost. Lots of people are also wondering whether their favourite sweets will disappear as well.

Manchester City beat Manchester United this week. The two teams meet again in the Carling Cup next week, but the 2-1 City victory was a big surprise for many people.

For many years United seemed unbeatable, but has had two surprising defeats this year and is not currently at the top of the Premier league. However, many football experts think City will beat United in the second leg of the match next week.
