The study, co-authored by Marily Oppezzo, a Stanford doctoral graduate in educational psychology, and Daniel Schwartz, a professor at Stanford Graduate School of Education, found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly encouraged creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, an

"The Australian-led search is relying on information from satellite and other data to determine the missing aircraft's
