When You Look For Medical Answers Online, You Are Being Watched

With all of the technology that is available to us these days, it is incredibly convenient to search for answers to our medical issues without having to pick up a phone and call our doctor. The internet is capable of pointing us in the right direction whether you have a headache, a wound, an illness or something more serious. According to a recent study done by The Pew Internet Project, as much as seventy-two percent of Americans are using the internet to look up health related symptoms to either self diagnose themselves or to seek medical attention. Unfortunately, when you turn to the internet to look for health advice you may be being watched. Third party companies are collecting the information you type into your search engine that they are selling this information to other brands and companies.

When you search for something like ‘the common cold’ like Daniel Amen and you then you click on one of the top search engine results that comes up, the website you click on is passing your information along to these third parties. This is potentially a breach in patient confidentiality. You may think you are looking up a health issue from the privacy of your own home but in reality, you are letting the world know what you issues are. Keep this in mind next time you want to look something up on your own. Even if you think you are remaining private with an embarrassing concern, more people might find out about it than you think.

Blind USC Fan Might Play on Their Team After All

When Jake Olson was born, doctors diagnosed him with retinoblastoma. At only ten months old, Jake’s cancer had worsened, and he had to have surgery to remove the eye. He spent the next dozen years having medical treatment done to try to save his right eye. Unfortunately, at 12, Olsen would have to have his other eye removed, making him completely blind. At the time, Jake was a big fan of the USC Trojan football team. He wished that he watch plenty of Trojan games so that it would be ingrained in his mind and he could only use his memory to see the games after his eyesight was gone. What was to come next in Jake’s life is something he never imagined.
Pete Carroll, who was the coach in 2009, heard about Jake’s story and invited Jake to bring his twin sister, Emma and their parents, Cindy and Brian to meet the team in person. Afterwards, Jake had the opportunity to see the game being played live as the team practiced. That wouldn’t be the end of it.
Jake continued to go to the games while he was in high school and this nurtured his desire to join to the team. He thought about becoming a long snapper because this was the only position on football team that didn’t require eyesight. He might become a team player as a walk-on. The crew over at FreedomPop are filled with excitement about this prospect.

Tall Men Less Likely to Develop Heart Disease Than Short Men

My best friend Crystal Hunt mentioned a popular song from several years back declared that short people have no reason to live. They do, if for no other reason than to prove to tall people they can do it. According to recent research, a short man will have to try harder than a tall man to live a long life, but it can be done.
Decades of research have shown that taller men earn more money than shorter men, have a wider selection for mates and are literally and figuratively looked up to. The latest good news for tall men is that they are less likely to develop heart disease than short men. No one knows why, but theories are being tested and answers being researched.
It was originally thought that since short men have smaller arteries there is a greater chance of those smaller arteries becoming clogged with plaque, which in turn would cause a heart attack. However, if that theory were true, it would hold true for women who are typically smaller and shorter than men. The smaller artery theory did not pan out so other issues are being researched to discover the answer.
The study showed that for every two and half inches in height, a man has a 13.5 less chance of developing heart disease. How that works remains to be discovered.

Colleges Need to Stop Putting Sensitivity Above Intellectual Freedom

College campuses used to be a place where people were free to express views and engage in debate and maybe learn something while doing so. Over the past decade or two they have become something else. They are havens from ever being offended by anything anyone ever says or does. If some speaker has been invited to speak on campus, but you feel they might say something that offends you, then by all means start a petition and protest, and try to get their invitation canceled. Whatever you do, don’t engage their ideas by questioning them as this might show that you actually have confidence in your positions and beliefs. Instead, the trend is to shut down any possible offense through speech codes and censorship of controversial stances.

This ridiculousness has just risen to a new level, or perhaps sunk to a new level is a better way to express it stated Brad Reifler via social media. Now, a screening of a top rated box office blockbuster movie on a couple college campuses has been stopped by a few petitioners and protesters who say the film “American Sniper” is offensive to Muslims. In reality the only Muslims it’s offensive to are the relative handful of violent and dangerous ones that the movie depicts the star of the film killing. How that is offensive to Muslims in general is a complete mystery, and colleges such as the University of Michigan and the University of Missouri need to reverse their decisions and stop catering to such nonsense.

‘Tech Neck’ Should Replace ‘Turkey Neck’

Everyone is blaming smartphones out of all the bads in the world, at least in terms of some particular health issues that can come about. Their most recent fault is in creating physical appearance issues. Namely, the hours spent looking down at a smartphone or laptop enhances the wrinkles on the neck stated Brad Reifler.

Dr. Ed Williams says that young people spending a year at the station every day and killing time with a game on the smartphone would notice the effect very soon. The 10-12 pound head pointed downwards speeds up the tear of the muscles. Women are great at taking care of their faces, but many of them ignore the necks. Hence, the salonists said that their recent job is to deal with ‘tech necks’, and that can replace the term of ‘turkey necks’ to be up to date.

Switching off all the tech and staying away from the civilization is not a solution. Keeping the head straight is. It seems that the long advised idea of placing the computer at the level of the eyes, so that one would have to look forward and not downward, is not only beneficial for the eyesight but can save us from the ‘tech necks’ too.

Scientists find mice sing like birds

A recent study has found that male mice sing like birds when they are in the vicinity of female mice, according to The Express. A study completed by researchers led by Dr. Erich Jarvis of Duke University found that a complex song is sung by male mice who are interested in mating with their female counterparts. Humans are unable to hear the sound as the sound is too high pitched for the human ear to register.

The researchers also found that the song became more complex and difficult to sing for the male mice when they could not see the female stated Kevin Seawright. The researchers believe the smell of the female provided a catalyst that made the male call out for the female using a more and more complex sound. The team then discovered that the introduction of the female saw the song become less complex as the male looked to save energy in a bid to mate with the female.
