Believe it or not, there or items in the news that have nothing to do with celebrities passing away.
Do you know what is the most dangerous high school sport?
Nope…it’s not football but, it does have to do with football games.
Cheerleading causes more serious and deadly injuries by far than other sports.
That’s according to the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Between 1982 and 2007, there were 67 fatal, disabling or serious injuries recorded among female high school cheerleaders. The next most dangerous sports: gymnastics (nine such injuries) and track (seven). Cheerleading accounted for 65.2 percent of high school and 70.5 percent of college catastrophic injuries among all female sports.
Okay…so there’s a new test message scam going around.
It’s called “smishing”.
The text message is designed to get the recipient to call a number and provide an account number and personal identification number.
The message appears to be from a local bank and advises the recipient that his “CARD” has been deactivated. The text then requests the recipient to call a number in the 323 area code to “reactivate” the card by providing account and identification numbers. This information is then used to remove funds from the caller’s account.
Psychologists at the University of Rochester say that Happiness Has Nothing to Do with Wealth.
Wonder how much they were paid to say that.
Instead,wealth, fame and good looks may be a formula for anxiety rather than happiness. Researchers say that among their study group of young college graduates, those who focused on a goal tended to reach it. This new research shows that having the right kind of goals is what matters,.
And, what are the 5 keys to Happiness?
1. Pick good parents
Gnes trump environmental factors, according to a study in the journal Psychological Science. Differences in DNA that could explain why some people tend to have an extra bounce in their step might also underlie the tendency to be more emotionally stable and socially and physically active.
2. Give it away
It only takes $5 spent on others to make you happier on a given day, according to a 2008 study. And selfless acts can also help your marriage become a more enjoyable experience for you and your spouse.
3. Ponder this
4. Work out
Yep, we have heard this one before. Exercise improves one’s state of mind by affecting the body’s levels of two chemicals: cortisol and endorphins.
5. Live long
A study of 2 million people from 80 nations found that depression is most common among adults in their mid-40s. Among Americans, the worst of times hit women around age 40 and men about age 50.
