How People Thrive on Less Sleep
Most people need seven to eight hours of sleep a night to be at their best, but some lucky individuals need less.

Short sleepers can function on just six hours of sleep or less, and only make up about one percent of the population. A 2009 study found that three types of genetic mutations are related to the ability to function well on minimal amounts of sleep, and that short sleepers are usually optimistic and energetic.

Most researchers say they think short sleepers are actually sleep deprived, but somehow do not feel the symptoms of sleep deprivation the way most others do.  Professor Ying-Hui Fu, with the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, says that if researchers can one day pinpoint what makes short sleeping possible for some, it could lead to a drug that reduces the amount of sleep ordinary people need.

Americans Eating Twice the Amount of Butter than Margerine
Americans are once again embracing butter in all of its deliciousness. The average American today eats nearly 23 sticks of butter a year, which pulls butter ahead of margarine for the third year in a row.

The revival of butter comes with a growing backlash against processed foods, and new research suggesting that fat is not so bad after all. Still, butter consumption today is low compared to the 1920s, when the average American ate about 72 sticks a year.

Firework Related Injuries on the Rise
Fireworks are pretty to look at, but you should exercise caution if you plan to play with any.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSP) says that last year 11,400 people were hurt while handling fireworks,and that number is up from 8,700 injuries in 2012. The CPSP reports that 65 percent of injuries last year happened within the 30 day period leading up to the July 4th holiday. Kids under the age of five had the highest per capita rate of the injuries last year. To be safe, only buy legal fireworks, don't let kids handle or light fireworks, and keep a bucket of water or a garden hose nearby, just in case.

5 Industries that Millenials Are Destroying
Millenials are characterized as entitled and out of touch special snowflakes… and they are now responsible for the impending death of five former juggernaut industries.

Yahoo! Finance predicts that the demographic shift coming from the 80 million Americans born between 1980 and 1995 will be a disaster.  While lauding millenials’ tech-savviness, they say that the industries that they are currently shunning will cause a lot of pain to investors.
  1. Cars.  As of now 28% of 16 year olds have licenses, compared to the 44% in 1980.  Car sales in America are on the rebound, but they predict that since millenials love to live in urban and walkable areas, car-sharing services like ZipCar will rise while car dealerships will crumble.
  2. Cable TV.  Video streaming sites are on the rise while pay-TV lines are falling, which will cause major headwinds for anything related to cable TV for investors.
  3. Brick-and-mortar retail.  While economy experts are blaming the bad winter for a slowdown, online sales are on the rise, growing about 17% in the last year.
  4. Homebuilders.  Half of home-buying Millenials are asking their parents to shoulder their down payments, while the other half are too spooked by the recession to take on a mortgage due to increasing student loan debt.    
  5. Soft Drinks.  Coca-Cola and Pepsi are suffering under a new movement to destroy childhood obesity and Millenials are consuming far less soda and previous generations.  And the number declines every year while the consumption for energy and sports drinks are now rising.
So there you have it!

Too Much TV Consumption Linked with Early Death
What's your favorite TV show? You'd be better off not binge-watching it, finds a new study.

Over 13 thousand people were studied over a span of eight years, and researchers found that those who watched three or more hours of TV per day were more at risk for meeting an early demise.

Study author Dr. Miguel Martinez-Gonzalez says people who watch lots of TV may have a higher risk of an early death because they are more isolated, and so are very lonely with little support. Martinez-Gonzalez points out that there is nothing wrong with watching TV, you just shouldn't watch three or more hours a day.

More Than 41 Million Americans Plan to Travel on the 4th
For many Americans, Independence Day means a three day weekend.

Triple-A is predicting that 41 million people will the hit the road for the holiday weekend and travel 50 miles or more. That's up about two percent from last year, when 40.3 million people traveled for the Fourth. The fact that the holiday falls on a Friday is certainly encouraging people to pack up and go. Most will be traveling by car (85%), and gas currently costs $3.86 a gallon, up nearly 13 cents from the same time last year.

Justin Bieber's 'Eggate' at a Standstill
No advancement has been made in Justin Bieber’s egg throwing case.  TMZ is reporting that case is just sitting in D.A. Jackie Lacey’s office.  Apparently no one can make a decision as to whether or not file the case as a misdemeanor or felony vandalism.  What’s the difference? The total cost amount of damage made .  If damage exceeds over $400, it’s a felony.

Teens Are Not Leaving Facebook: Refutes Old Findings
A new Forrester Research report indicates that teens aren't abandoning Facebook after all in favor of other social media like Twitter and Tumblr, even though reports and studies over the last couple of years had shown that they were visiting the original social network last frequently.

The new report found that nearly 80 percent of U.S. teens still use Facebook and are more active on the social networking site than any other. The survey found that almost half of the teen respondents said they use Facebook more than they did a year ago, and 28 percent said they're on Facebook "all the time."

Conforting People Going through Hard Times
How do you comfort a friend in need?

If you think pointing out that every cloud has a silver lining is a good plan, you'd be wrong. A new paper reveals that when participants "positively reframed" negative events it did not resonate with people with low self-esteem. In fact, the method was found to potentially backfire and make the comforter feel worse because their comforting wasn't working.

What worked better was the use of "negative validation", or telling the person that their feelings, actions or responses were normal and appropriate to the situation. Researchers say that positive reframing fails to work because it "may suggest to some...that their anxiety about the upcoming event is unfounded and that their relationship partner does not truly understand or accept their feelings.

How to Make People Hate You on Facebook
Whatever happened to writing a good old fashioned love letter?

New data reveals the obvious-- people who post mushy things about their partner on Facebook are less popular. Researchers created fake Facebook profiles, some of which featured a profile photo of a couple, and revealed the user's relationship status. Then those profiles posted "high disclosure" statuses about their significant other such as, "Pining away for Jordan... I just love you so much I can't stand it!"

Participants were then asked to judge how happy each "user" was in their relationship and asked to rate how much they liked each person. Those who disclosed too much information about their relationship were the least popular, however, they were also judged to be the most satisfied in their relationships.

Facial Recognition to Replace Passwords?
Passwords cause all sorts of issues, but they may soon be replaced. A new password alternative is being explored called "Facelock," and is based on the psychology of face recognition.

To use Facelock, users would flag a set of faces they know pretty well but others may not, and then would have to identify one of those faces in a series of grids that contained faces from a similar field. The face would stick out to the password creator and stump a fraudster. Study author Dr. Rob Jenkins says, "Pretending to know a face that you don't know is like pretending to know a language that you don't know-- it just doesn't work. The only system that can reliably recognize faces is a human who is familiar with the faces concerned."

Pesticides May Cause Autism
A new study from the University of California, Davis, found a possible link between pesticide exposure in pregnancy and autism in children.

Researchers found that children with an autism spectrum disorder were more likely to have mothers who lived close to fields treated with certain pesticides while they were pregnant. Exposure was also linked to other types of developmental delay in children.

Lead author Janie F. Shelton said, "Ours is the third study to specifically link autism spectrum disorders to pesticide exposure," however she told Reuters that more research is needed before scientists can say that pesticides cause autism. Explaining why pesticides could do this, she says that they all affect signaling between cells in the nervous system.

Men Are More Emotional Than Women
Men are stereotyped as being tough, but stereotypes tend to be unreliable.

A U.K. study reveals that men are actually more emotional than women. Fifteen mothers and fifteen fathers were shown a series of images and videos while they had their physiological responses measured. Men were found to have a slightly higher emotional reaction to blissful, funny and exciting content compared to women, but were twice as emotional as women when shown heart-warming content.

Neuropsychologist and study leader, Dr. David Lewis, says, "This study suggests that men feel emotion just as much as women, sometimes more strongly, but are less willing to express these emotions openly due to expectations put on them by society."

William Shatner Starts a Twitter Fight --- Loses
William Shatner thinks that only mega stars should be verified twitter users.  He tore into John Colucci, the social media guy for a company called Engadget.  So, Shatner, being very mature about that, tweeted if Colucci can get verified, his social media guy should also get verified.  He went on to call Colucci a nobody.  Of course, Twitter took Colucci’s side and Shatner logged off – ending the argument.

Kristen Stewart Sues Joan Rivers
Kristen Stewart’s team has threatened to sue Joan Rivers due to the comments the comedian made about Stewart’s affair in her upcoming book.  Here’s what Joan had to say about it. "I'm now being sued by Kristen Stewart.  She obviously didn't read our disclaimer, which is it's a comedy book.  I can't wait to get her to court, because I want to get a puppet, and I want her to shoe me on the puppet where she thinks I claim she touched her director."   Stewart's team has since backed off their threats for the time being.

Joan Rivers told TMZ photographers that Kristen Stewart (right) is threatening to sue her over comments made in her memoir about the ‘Twilight’ actress.

Are Hillary Clinton and Katy Perry BFF's?
Former first lady Hillary Clinton met Katy Perry during her book tour.  While signing copies of her memoir, Hard Choices, Katy shared a selfie of the two and wrote, “I would write her a ‘theme’ song if she needs it.”  No word if Clinton did actually accept the offer, though.

Negative People More Efficient at Their Job

If your workers earned the nicknames of the seven dwarves, who would be Grumpy?  If it’s you, that’s actually a good thing.

Researchers at the University of Illinois are finding out that negative people are more efficient at their job.  They spend more time on less tasks, which means they get the job done more thoroughly.  People with more upbeat attitudes tend to get involved in more activities.

In two studies, participants reported all of their activities over a one-week period and also completed a measure of attitudes. Nearly 15 per cent of the differences in how many activities people took part in over a week was associated with being a hater versus a 'liker'.  Haters and likers didn’t differ in how much time they spent doing activities throughout the week; they merely differed in the number of activities that they did.

Haters could be characterized as less active because they do fewer things as people with a positive attitude, which means they are more focused because they spend more time on the small number of tasks.  While likers can develop a jack-of-all-trades knack, they don’t spend as much time as the ‘hater’ on the one skill they are good at, proving varying levels of skill.

That grumpy person you know may be better at their job since they spend so much time on fewer activities

Hypoallergenic Peanuts in the Works
Attention peanut allergy sufferers, there could someday be hypoallergenic peanuts. Researchers from North Carolina's Agricultural and Technical State University have developed a process that reduces peanut allergens by up to 98 percent.

The process requires soaking de-shelled and roasted peanuts in a solution of food-grade enzymes. Lead researcher Jianmei Yu says, "Treated peanuts can be used as whole peanuts, in pieces, or as flour to make foods containing peanuts safer for many people who are allergic." The treated peanuts apparently still look and taste like regular, roasted peanuts.

There's even a chance they could be used in immunotherapy under a doctor's supervision.

Rihanna Enjoys the Single Life
Rihanna is totally cool with being single.  Although it must be tiring denying all those rumors about all those men she’s apparently dating.  She opened up to a German magazine, Bravo, saying that while she does take guys out for dates, she’s not looking for anything serious.  RiRi added that just because she hangs out with a member of the opposite sex, doesn’t mean they’re doing it, either.

Harley Davidson Unveils Electric Motorcycle
When you consider who might be interested in getting an electric motorcycle, probably the last person you'd think of is a Harley-Davidson rider. But that's not what the classic American company thinks, having designed an electric concept motorcycle called Project LiveWire.

In fairness, Harley is looking more to win new customers than to get traditional Harley riders to go electric. Jeff Richlen, chief engineer of Harley-Davidson new products, told Yahoo Autos, "We see this as a bike for more urban areas. It's something that's appealing to people that perhaps haven't considered a Harley before, but it still retains our core DNA." The LiveWire has an electric motor that produces 75 horsepower and allows the bike to reach 60 miles per hour in under four seconds, and it has a total range of around 53 miles before recharging. Those are what the numbers are for now, at least, since this a test bike, not one that's in production yet. Harley also says it's created a new sound signature for the LiveWire that's different from the traditional Harley sound, describing it as "fighter jet on an aircraft carrier."

A few dozen LiveWires will go on tour around the U.S. and Europe to see how buyers respond to the bike and what might need changing if and when it goes on sale. Richlen said, "So far, riders have been stoked. The response has been phenomenal, but the tech is still maturing."



Here's what one of the prototypes looks like

The Biggest Tech Turn-offs in Relationships
Do you continue to text during dinner? You're probably irritating your partner.

New data from U.K. company TalkTalk Mobile finds that sending the wrong amount of kisses (Xs) is the top tech turn-off of those in relationships. In other words, responding with fewer Xs than a partner sent to you is a big no-no. Other technology-related behaviors people rated as annoying: ending a relationship via text, re-sending the same text if your partner doesn't respond, and answering the phone during dinner. Over half of men polled said they think it's acceptable to end a relationship via text, while 62 percent of women said they think face-to-face break ups are best.

A researcher says, "Nearly 70 percent of us know someone with bad phone manners-- although only a fifth of us thought our own phone manners may be in need of improvement. So our top tips aim to help people weave their way through the web that is modern phone etiquette."

Using the wrong amount of kisses in a text message has been revealed as the top turn off in romantic phone etiquette. Answering the phone at dinner and using it in the cinema (stock image pictured) also made the list

Facebook Will Now Celebrate Your Anniversary
Anniversaries can be big milestones in a relationship, so obviously Facebook should acknowledge them. Facebook will now congratulate users on their relationship or wedding anniversary.

Users will have the option of sharing their relationship story alongside a college of photos of the couple. The new feature will only apply to users who share the actual date their relationship began, and the congratulatory message will only appear to those in the relationship (unless of course the they choose to share it.)

Nicki Minaj's Says "Your Love" Was a Mistake
Did you know Nicki Minaj’s “Your Love” almost didn’t happen?  Apparently when someone located in the Atlanta branch of Hot Beats Studio leaked the track, Nicki was extremely horrified since the music was still unfinished.  However, she and her manager figured the world would forget about the leak, but it didn’t, and it wound up on Billboard on its own.

Personal Driverless Cars Could be a Thing Soon
After a long day at the office there's nothing worse than sitting in traffic.

New data reveals that driverless cars could reduce traffic by up to 80 percent. Researcher and director of an MIT-run lab, Carlos Ratti says that driverless cars combined with the right applications could ultimately result in fewer cars on the road, and therefore less traffic.

Singapore is leading the world in driverless car trials, and is currently testing a fleet of the vehicles on the National University of Singapore campus.

Google announced last month that it intends to have a fleet of 100 driverless cars on public roads by next year.

Trophy Wife Is a Myth!
We all know the stereotype of a trophy wife-- an attractive woman who is married to a rich man.

Now science says the trophy wife is basically just a mythical creature. Researchers looked at a nationally representative sample of couples and found that "handsome men partner with pretty women and successful men partner with successful women." Also, it was fairly rare for an attractive woman from a lower social class to move upward via marriage, and men are just as likely to do so.

Lead researcher Elizabth McClintock says that high-status men do have more attractive wives on average, but it's because they are also considered more attractive than their less successful counterparts. McClintock acknowledges that "trophy wife" couples do exist, but that they are the exception, not the rule.

Americans Rank Fast Food Chains... You'll Never Guess Who Comes in Dead Last
How often do you eat fast food?  

New data from the American Customer Service Index finds that Americans aren't huge fans of McDonald's. The report indicates that the average American ate out four times a week in 2013, and that the average customer satisfaction score for a fast food establishment was 80 out of 100.

Fast food pizza chains came out on top, Papa John's nabbed the top spot scoring an 82. Restaurants rounding out the top five: Pizza Hut (82), Little Caesar (80), Domino's Pizza (80) and Subway (78.)

The bottom five restaurants were: Burger King (76), Dunkin' Donuts (75), KFC (74), Taco Bell (72) and of course McDonald's (71). SCSI Chairman Claes Fornell says, "In a weaker economy, consumers respond to price, but as the economy improves, quality becomes more important to restaurant consumers. This is good news for smaller chains and individual restaurants..."

Coca Cola Debuts Coke "Life" with Stevia Sweetener
Coca-Cola has been quietly test-marketing a new low-sugar, low-calorie version of its iconic beverage that's made with stevia, a natural sweetener that comes from the leaves of a plant.
 
Bloomberg Businessweek reports that Coke released the drink, called Coke Life, in Argentina and Chile last year, and is launching it in the U.K. this fall. The soda -- which comes in a bottle with a green label -- still contains some real sugar and has about 89 calories per can. According to the report, Coca-Cola is trying to respond to both the growing concern about sugar and the distrust of artificial sweeteners found in diet sodas, both of which have been cutting into their sales. There is currently not debut date set for Coke Life in the U.S.

Hidden Painting Underneath Picasso's "The Blue Room"
Scientists and art experts have revealed that they've found a hidden painting under the surface of one of Pablo Picasso's first masterpieces, "The Blue Room," according to an Associated Press report.
 
Using improved infrared imagery, they discovered a hidden portrait of a bow-tied man with his face resting in his had. The painting was created early in Picasso's career, at a time when, as a poor young artist living in Paris, it wouldn't have been unusual for him to reuse a canvas. Experts had long suspected there might be something under  "The Blue Room," which shows a woman bathing and has been part of The Phillips Collection in Washington since 1927.
 
Conservators are now trying to find out who the man in the portrait is.

Judges with Daughters More Likely to Make Feminist-Leaning Decisions
Having a daughter really does influence people.
 
New research from Harvard finds that judges with daughters are more likely to make feminist-leaning decisions than judges who only have boys. The data shows judges who have one daughter are seven to nine percent more likely to decide in favor of women's rights compared to judges without any daughters.
 
Also, the "daughter effect" did not increase when the judge had more than one girl. The study is the first to suggest that personal relationships may influence judicial decisions just as much as the judge's own political affiliation, race, or gender.

Espresso in Space? It's a Thing
Astronauts on board the International Space Station will soon be able to enjoy some freshly-made espresso, after Italian coffee company Lavazza denied a custom-made machine for the orbiting outpost.
 
Called the ISSpresso, the machine uses a high-tech system to deal with the micro-gravity environment. According to The Independent, "The plastic tube that normally delivers water . . . has been replaced by a steel tube capable of resisting pressures of over 400 bar to ensure that no liquids escape and the final product is served not in an espresso cup but in a sealed plastic pouch." The machine will be delivered to the ISS in November by an Italian astronaut.

Is It Impossible for Some People to Quit Smoking?
Smoking is a seriously addictive habit, and now science unveils why some people have an easier time kicking the habit than others. The brain of nicotine-deprived smokers were scanned in and MRI machine, and researchers found those who had the weakest brain response to rewards also were the least willing to stop smoking.
 
Dr. Stephen Wilson says, “Namely, potential sources of reinforcement for giving up smoking—for example, the prospect of saving money or improving health – may hold less value for some individuals and, accordingly, have less impact on their behavior.” The findings could lead to special interventions being developed for those who show weaker reward responses in the brain, and wish to quit smoking.

Can Siri Order You a Pizza?
If you order pizza via Domino’s mobile app, you’ll soon have the option of speaking to “Dom.” Similar to Apple’s Siri, Dom is a computer-generated voice that is expected to deliver a “human-like conversational” experience.
 
Dom will walk customers through the ordering process after they enter their address, but customers will still have to enter their credit card information on their own. Domino’s CEO Patrick Doyle says of the voice, “It is not perfect. This is the sort of thing, like any other new technology launch, you’re going to learn, you’re going to get better.”

91-Year-Old Man Returns Book 61 Years Late
A 91-year-old man returned a library book that was 61-years late. Ron Webster of England, checked out a copy of Structure and Function in Primitive Society in 1953, but only recently realized that hadn't returned it. He feared that he would be punished for lateness of the book, but the library staff were more "Amazed" then mad. Webster had his $7,600-late-fee waived on the condition that he lead "exemplary life and return all his books on time."

First Borns More Likely to Find Love Online
Have you ever tried online dating?
 
Now, science finds you're more likely to be successful if you're the firstborn in your family. A team of researchers looked at data from 7.6 million PlentyOfFish users. They found that middle children are the least likely to find a relationship online, while eldest children are most likely to find love. In families with more siblings, the eldest's chances of finding a relationship climbed higher.
 
For example, in a family with four children, the eldest had a ten percent higher chance of finding love online compared to his or her siblings. Sex and relationship expert Tracey Cox says, "You're not fated to live out your life dominated by the random timing of your birth. The stereotypes are more based on our role in the family which is something we are free to change." Cox adds its surprising that the youngest was found to have a harder time finding love online as they usually have great social skills and are popular.

What Bosses Hate to See the Most in the Office
When you're at work, you have to do things, like wear pants, and stay focused.
 
A new survey reveals what behaviors bosses think employees waste the most time on at work. NBC Nightly News teamed up with CareerBuilder and found that 50 percent of employers named cell phone use and texting as the top time waster, while 42 percent said gossip, and 39 percent said the Internet. Additionally, 38 percent said social media was a big distraction and 27% said snack or smoke breaks. Employees agreed that the use of personal technology was the top cause of being unproductive at work, with 24 percent admitting they spend at least one hour a day on personal calls, emails, or texts during a typical work day.
 
CareerBuilder's Rosemary Haefner says, "It's important to be organized and designate times to work on different deliverables. Minimize interruptions and save personal communications for your lunch hour or break. It can help put more time and momentum back into your workday."

Beyonce Shuns Gwyneth Paltrow
Oh Goop!  Looks like Beyonce is distancing herself from her former bestie, Gwyneth Paltrow.   Things went awry after Gwen’s and Chris’s divorce, causing Bey to completely cut her out of the picture.  The only thing she does is check in on their kids from time to time.  Before the breakup, though, Beyonce donated a pair of expensive boots to Gwen’s charity and got annoyed when an email blast went out announcing it since Beyonce likes to do her work anonymously.

Solar Flare Can Send Shockwaves and Mess With Technology Today
If your cell phone is acting funky today it's not because it's Friday the 13th. It's most likely because of a "coronal mass ejection" (CME), a huge cloud of irradiated particles and magnetic shockwave.
 
The cloud comes from three large solar flares that occurred earlier this week. If the CME strikes, the damage could be severe-- think huge electrical surges capable of knocking out power grids.
 
The NOAA says a serious event is unlikely, and the CME expected today will only land a "glancing blow" on Earth. Still, satellites could be affected, which could lead to dropped cell phone calls.

Tweets Determine Intelligence by State
How smart is your state? If you're basing each state's IQ off of tweets made by residents, Massachusetts is the most intelligent.
 
Researchers came up with an IQ for each state based on 500 thousand tweets posted by U.S. residents. A computer algorithm was used to score tweets based on spelling, grammar and word choice.
 
The majority of states got scores falling between a fourth grade and sixth grade reading level, and state-by-state results pretty much matched up to previous official state education performance statistics. Louisiana and Alabama received the lowest scores.

Use a Lot of Filler Words? You're More Thoughtful!
Do you know someone who uses tons of filler words such as "um," "like," "you know," and "I mean"?  It turns out those people are full of complex thoughts.
 
A new study indicates that people throw in filler words in an attempt to pause for a moment to collect their thoughts, or to prevent the listener from starting to speak. For example, people throw in "like" when they don't want to fully commit to a thought, and "you know" when they want the listener to make inferences about the conversation, or when they want to ensure the listener understands what is being said.
 
The data shows people who used these fillers were most likely to have the personality trait of conscientiousness. In other words, they are more aware of themselves, so they have a strong desire to rephrase or share opinions with their audience.
 

 So, Like, Um, It Turns Out People Who Use Filler Words Are Actually More Thoughtful

You Can Get Scared to Death
Feeling 'scared to death' is not just a cliché, it can really happen.
 
New data pinpoints why stressful situations can trigger heart attacks. Researchers studied the bacteria from diseased arteries taken from patients, and say they have the potential to be toxic.
 
Study co-author David Davies explains that certain hormones are released into the bloodstream when a person experiences a sudden emotional shock, and that the hormones can shift bacteria clinging to arteries. Those bacteria can then enter the blood stream and cause a heart attack or stroke. The findings indicate that managing bacteria may be just as important as monitoring cholesterol in patients with a build-up of fatty deposits in their arteries.

Reports say the singer pulled out because her demands weren't met, meaning private jets, hotel paid for, room service, the whole nine yards for not just her but her entire entourage.  World Cup officials didn't agree to the terms and she pulled out.  However, the backlash from fans around the world caused her to change her mind.

Dunkin' Donuts to Jack up Coffee Prices
You may want to start budgeting more for your morning cup of coffee.
 
Dunkin' Donuts says its prices will go up a little bit in stores due to a worldwide shortage of coffee. Earlier this year a fungus called coffee rust ravaged crops in many parts of Central America, and more recently coffee prices have increased due to concerns over drought in Brazil that may affect coffee bean supplies.
 
The CEO of Dunkin' Brands, Nigel Travis, says,"Coffee prices will go up a little bit in our stores, but not by much. We see other people increasing [the price] because of upward pressure." Back in March, Starbucks announced they would not be raising their store coffee prices despite the coffee shortage.

Televisions in the Bedroom = Better Sex Life
Having a TV in your bedroom may beneficial for your sex life.
 
A British company surveyed 2,431 people about their bedrooms and their sex lives, and 74 percent of people said they had televisions in their bedrooms.

Does Money Really Make You Happy?
Money can't buy happiness, but it certainly helps.
 
Americans seem to think they wouldn't really need that much of it to be happy any way. CNNMoney's American Dream Poll found that nearly a quarter of those questioned said they'd be happy making between 50 and 75 thousand dollars a year.
 
The responses echo a Princeton study, which found that emotional well-being rose with income, but not much beyond 75 thousand dollars. Ten percent of those polled said making between a dollar and 30 thousand dollars would make them happy, six percent said money can't buy happiness at all, and 23 percent admitted they'd need between 100,000 and 200,000 dollars to be happy.

Free Form Gestures Could Replace Pins and Passwords
What if you could simply make a free-form gesture to unlock your phone?
 
Researchers from New Jersey say they've developed a way to make that possible, and say it's more secure than the grid-based patterns currently used on iPhones and Android devices. The system allows a user to create any shape in any size and location on the screen of the device, which they then use as they would a password to unlock the device.
 
 Researchers found that the gestures were more secure than traditionally typed passwords or "connect the dot" grid exercises. Study leader Janne Lindqvist says, "All it takes to steal a password is a quick eye. With all the personal information we have on our phones today, improved mobile security is becoming increasingly critical."

Working Extra Hard Isn't Worth It
Sit back and relax, it turns out going the extra mile doesn't mean much.
 
Study author Ayelet Gneezy says, "Breaking one's promise is costly, but exceeding it does not appear worth the effort." A series of experiments showed that "promise receivers consistently failed to recognize the additional effort required to exceed a promise."
 
In other words, getting a task done on time makes people happy, getting it done late makes them angry, but getting it done early doesn't matter to them. Gneezy adds, "Just keeping your word is good enough, focus on that."

Most Feel American Dream is Impossible
Are you living the American dream?
 
A new poll of 1,003 American adults reveals 59 percent feel the American dream is unattainable. Sixty-three percent of those polled ages 18 to 34 said achieving the dream is impossible, as they've suffered in the wake of the Great Recession.
 
Perhaps that's why 63 percent of Americans said most children will not be better off than their parents, and just 54 percent said they feel they are better off than their own parents. Erin Currier with the Economic Mobility Project at Pew Charitable Trusts says, "The pessimism is reflective of the financial realities a lot of families are facing. They are treading water, but their income is not translating into solid financial security."

Most Prenups Now Have Social Media Clauses
Are you married? If so, there's a chance you signed a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot.
 
There's now a new trend in prenups-- a social media clause. This clause addresses what's acceptable for the couple to share online about each other, and can come with serious consequences if ignored.
 
Attorney Ann-Margaret Carrozza says, "This is relatively new. It's a huge issue because we all know this stuff, once it's out there, you can't shake it. It can be humiliating. It can be painful...I expect this clause to become much more important..." Carrozza says a typical social media clause will forbid those signing the prenup from posting nude photos, embarrassing photos or photos or posts that are likely to harm a spouse's professional reputation. Those who disobey the social media clause can expect to pay up to 50 thousand dollars for one inappropriate tweet.

Allergy Season Can Last All Summer Long
Bad news, allergy season could extend into summer.
 
Dr. Jacqueline Eghrari-Sabet explains, "Because we've had the late onset of the spring...what we don't know is what the weather is going to be in terms of blooming of other pollens like weeds.We could certainly have this parade of one leading into the other that the tree pollen leads to the grass pollen leads to the ragweed."
 
The quality of air where you live, combined with weather patterns and high pollen counts could cause allergy and asthma symptoms to worsen among some sufferers. Eghrari-Sabet says patients should act fast to treat allergies and asthma now, before they get worse.

Men and Women Feel Pain Differently
Men and women are very different, and now science has found your gender may affect how you experience pain.
 
Researchers interviewed over ten thousand patients in Germany, 42 percent who were male and 58 percent who were female. Women were found to be more likely to report feeling more pain after minor surgical procedures, while men were more likely to report more pain after major surgery.
 
Study authors say there were differences between how the genders were affected by different procedures-- for example a cancer-related biopsy or an abortion may take a particularly serious emotional toll on women, affecting their perception of pain. Still, one expert says in his experience he has seen no difference between how men and women deal with severe and chronic pain.

Hair Color Has Nothing to Do With Intelligence
The stereotype of the dumb blonde is just a myth, finds new research.

Study lead, Professor David Kingsley, says, "The genetic mechanism that controls blonde hair doesn't alter the biology of any other part of the body. It's a good example of a trait that's skin deep and only skin deep."

Kingsley and his team identified the gene that determines hair color and say it is not associated with eye color, nor does it affect the brain in any way.

Statistically: The Worst Times to Be Admitted to a Hospital
The time you schedule your surgery or get admitted to the hospital can affect your risk of death.

A recent study found that a patient's risk of death after surgery is highest on weekends, afternoons and in February.

Another study echoed the findings, confirming that patients admitted to hospitals on the weekends have a higher risk of death than those admitted on weekdays. For the first study, researchers analyzed data from over 200 thousand patients and found that patients operated on in the afternoon were 21 percent more likely to die compared to those who had surgery at other times of the day.

Additionally, surgery on the weekend was found to have a 22 percent higher risk of death than surgery on weekdays, and those who had surgery in February were 16 percent more likely to die than those who had surgery in any other month. Researchers from both studies say they're unsure if hospital care quality is worse on the weekends and afternoons, or if patients admitted on weekends tend to be more ill than those admitted on weekdays.

Sixty-two percent said they had no idea if the person giving the injection was properly trained to do so, and about 33 percent admitted they felt nervous before, during and after the procedure.

Transform reports seeing an alarming 15 percent rise in the number of patients seeking help following ineffective treatments with non-registered salons. Dr. Hilary Jones, an independent member of Transform's Clear panel says, "Informed consent is vital for any medical procedure and cosmetic interventions such as anti-wrinkle injections are no exception."

EMERGENCY: Egg White Shortage
 What's for breakfast?

Health conscious Americans are eating a ton of egg-whites, putting a strain on the egg supply chain and causing an egg white shortage.

Analysts say as fast food restaurants have added low-cholesterol egg sandwiches to menu boards, and egg suppliers have been struggling to keep pace. Data shows the price of unpasteurized egg whites has soared 80 percent to more than a dollar per pound in the past year alone. Those high prices are hurting independent bakeries, who have had to start rationing dried egg white sales to customers as they can't keep them in stock.
