12/4/2020
Do different occupations drive differently? Have you ever looked at people driving cars and wonder what they do for a living? Think their occupations have anything to do with their driving style? It does. Makes sense, right? Let’s take the medical profession. Does a dermatologist drive differently than a surgeon? A study that focused on fast driving, luxury car owners and their medical specialty gave us the answers. All of this information was learned during speeding traffic stops. As it...

12/3/2020
Your childhood lunchbox Remember that lunchbox you carried to school? Or, did you have a brown paper bag like me? The one that was reused until it became too tired to safely carry my sandwich anymore. Maybe you had one of those cool domed Disney School Bus domed metal boxes. Wow! Six million were sold from the early 1960’s. Lunchboxes designed for kids hit the market in 1902. They were shaped like a picnic basket and had pictures of kids playing on it. Designer lunchboxes hit the market big...

Parenting Pointers 1137 - Teens share too much online

12/2/2020
Teens share too much online Think your teen isn’t sharing private information online? Think again. Just because your little darling is very smart and seems mature for her age, don’t think she has the wisdom and judgment she needs to protect herself. But, it’s not just her. About 75% of teens, ages 13 to 17, report that they’ve given their full birth date, address and importantly, the school they attend. They’re so accustomed to sharing everything with their friends that their awareness...

12/1/2020
A messy kitchen can make you fat Is your kitchen a disorganized mess? If so, it might be adding to your waistline. People with chaotic kitchens frequently have out-of-control feelings of stress that make them hungry. Their thoughts go something like this...”Life is hard. I’m really stressed. I deserve a treat”. Oh yeah, and what happens next? They get really stressed again and they go looking for food in their totally messed up kitchens. We get good at what we practice and when we practice...

11/30/2020
Marijuana in dispensaries is stronger Got a prescription for pot? If you get that filled at a medical marijuana dispensary, you’re likely to get a stronger dose than the doctor prescribed. A lot stronger. Doctors typically prescribe 5% THC and a survey of products at dispensaries revealed that the THC level is at 10%. Side effects such as anxiety and paranoia, plus the tendency to develop a tolerance, increases with dosage. Don’t think you can inhale a little less to offset the increase in...

Parenting Pointers 1134 - Are middle names necessary?

11/27/2020
Are middle names necessary? How many people know your middle name? Are you ashamed of it, delighted by it? Middle names are phasing out. 125 years ago, most Congressmen used their middle initial and now, most don’t. But that’s Congress. In ancient Roman times, only the elite had middle names. The first name was for the individual and the last was for the family. The middle name was a nickname of sorts. Come the 1200’s in Italy, only the upper class had middle names, but that didn’t last...

Parenting Pointers 1133 - Women with thinning hair

11/26/2020
Women with thinning hair Disney princesses. Hollywood celebrities. Yep, they’ve set us up to believe that all women should have full, lush hair. The way it works is that when we reach 30, about a third of us will have noticeably thinning hair. It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs every day, but if you start losing upwards of 150 hairs, you’ll notice. The condition also includes hair miniaturization which means that your hairs will have a smaller diameter. At that point, you’re well...

Parenting Pointers 1132 - They apologized, but I’m still really mad

11/25/2020
They apologized, but I’m still really mad Your feelings are really hurt. They apologized, but you’re still angry. Was the apology all it should’ve been? There are 5 critical elements of a “healing apology” that ease the hurt and repair the relationship. One, the offender must acknowledge the reasons for your pain and own their actions. Two, they must accept blame instead of putting it on you with that, “Gee, I’m sorry your feelings are hurt” stuff. Three, they don’t take an accusatory...

Parenting Pointers 1131 - The most unusual jobs in America

11/24/2020
The most unusual jobs in America There’s a job for everyone, I guess. Some “unusual jobs” are more unusual than others. Would you like to be a professional snuggler? They make upwards of $80 for a 90-minute snuggle. How about a golf ball diver or a pet food taster? Would you prefer to test beds or sniff paper towels to see if they have just the right scent for your kitchen? Hate to wait in line? You can pay someone to do that for you. If you’re a kid at heart, you can test water slides....

Sitting up straight and crossing your arms works wonders Science proved it. When you’re faced with a challenging task, people who sat up straight and crossed their arms stayed with it for nearly twice as long as those who didn’t assume such a determined stance. When you change body postures, breathing patterns, muscle tension, facial expressions, gestures, movements, words and even vocal tones, there’s a surge of chemicals that change our internal state. The same thing happens when you...

11/20/2020
Will bank buildings become obsolete? Most Americans think bank buildings will become a thing of the past in the near future. Why? The digital age has revolutionized the banking industry. About 27% of Millennials, ages 23 to 38, have never been in a bank and make all of their transactions electronically. Not only can business be conducted fast and easy, but all of the records are online. No more paper chase. It’s not just the Millennials that think banks are quickly becoming a thing of the...

What is the happiest time in a marriage? Every marriage has its own season. It can’t be all rainbows and champagne every day, but, many marriages enjoy specific periods of time that seem to bring the greatest satisfaction. The happiest time in a marriage is said to be 11 months and 8 days after the wedding. All of life is fresh, new and exciting. About 2 years and 4 months in, couples enjoy the height of intimacy.

Yep, the latest bad news is that most diets stop working after a year. You thought you had it made when you got to the one-year mark, but that’s not the case.

Oh no, say it ain’t so, Dr. Claudia! Waddya mean that doing housework can make me happier? People who clean their own homes are 25% happier than those who don’t. And, what’s worse is that for every extra hour of cleaning a week, the happier you are by a whopping 53%. What’s going on here? If you have a tidy home, you’re likely to be more relaxed, have increased focus, greater productivity and you’ll sleep better. If your environment is a mess, you feel out of control.

11/16/2020
Social anxiety might be genetic Ten percent of people will experience social anxiety in their lifetimes. Social anxiety is that distressing feeling you get when you worry about being judged by others. You avoid any social situation where people will think poorly of you. And, in your mind, they can only be critical of you. If you prefer to interact online rather than in person, you just might have social anxiety. Physically, it causes you to have a rapid heartbeat and feel out of breath. You...

Feeling full and getting depressed People who regularly eat fast food over a period of 6 years are 41% more likely to become depressed than those who avoided the fat crud. Scientists looking at this connection decided that it’s the high level of artificial trans fats that’s interfering with the brain’s ability to produce certain mood stabilizing neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals responsible for sending messages throughout the body. Kind of important, right? Despite the 2018...

11/11/2020
Left brain, right brain. It’s a no-brainer. Not too long ago, we still thought that people who are left-brained are more logical, analytical and math oriented while right-brained folks are more emotional, intuitive, artistic and free spirited. We don’t believe this anymore because science has learned the truth. Even common sense tells us that both sides of the brain should be working together. Most behaviors and abilities require that both sides of the brain cross the aisle to process...

11/10/2020
So, what is this new umami taste anyway? You keep hearing about it. Suddenly, out of the blue, there’s a new flavor. It’s umami, a Japanese word that means a “pleasant, savory taste”. Foods with an umami flavor have a brothy or meaty essence that’s long-lasting, mouth-watering and leaves a coating sensation over the tongue. The source of the taste is a high level of glutamate, an amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and have critical roles in your health. The umami...

Can your friends make you fat? Do your friends influence your weight? Yes, they do, and it makes sense, doesn’t it? Our friends influence our fashion, our way of speaking and gesturing, the movies we see, the books we read and our love interests. A study from Harvard Medical School cautions us about the powerful influence of our friend’s weight on our eating habits. If they’re thin, you’re likely to mind your calories. If they’re overweight, your scale is likely to move in that direction....
