Lessons In Love

Like the pandas who are getting lessons in love-making, students at two polytechnic schools in Singapore can take a love elective worth two credits. The government is offering the class, which include watching romantic films, holding hands, and love song analysis, to boost the city state’s flagging birthrate. According to the CIA, the birthrate in Singapore is 9.17 per 1,000. To put that in perspective, the U.S.’s birth rate is 14.16 births per 1,000, and the U.K.’s is 10.67. Get busy, kids!
