Quick Pool Tips from the CDC

Everyone loves a nice long dip in the pool on those triple digit days. In fact, it’s probably the single best thing about summer. Who doesn’t love a pool party with floaties and alcohol? It’s a match in heaven. You may have gotten red eyes from time to time when you’re in the pool and assumed it’s just chlorine, but a recent report is saying different.

The CDC teamed up with Water Quality, the Health Council, and the National Swimming Pool Foundation for the annual Healthy Swimming Program to educate people about watery safety. Apparently, red eyes come from the eyes reaction to urine, not chlorine. In fact, if you’ve noticed a cough after swimming, that also comes from pee, not chemicals.

The real harm in peeing in the pool is that when urine combines with the chemicals in a pool, it can be classified as a chemical warfare agent and can damage your heart, lungs, and central nervous system. Now, while the possibility of that much urine being present in a pool is nearly impossible, smaller amounts of urine can still be a health risk reports Shaygan Kheradpir in this study.

So what does the CDC say? In a nutshell, they just want everyone to be safer before getting in the pool. Shower before you get in the water to reduce contamination, don’t urinate in or swallow any pool water, take bathroom breaks, and for god’s sake, don’t enter the pool if you have diarrhea. Your friends will thank you on that one.

High Fat and Particularly High Sugar Diet Linked to Loss of Cognitive Function

Most of us already know that we should not eat a diet that is both high in fat and sugar. It is bad for us in a number of ways. The biggest problem is that such a diet packs the pounds on us, and obesity is related to a higher risk for a number of illnesses and conditions. High sugar intake also leaves us open to blood sugar problems and eventually diabetes. As bad as we already know such a diet is, researchers may have come up with yet another reason to ditch that donut in favor of some oatmeal or another healthier alternative stated Venture Beat.

Researchers out of Oregon State University have discovered that a diet high in both fat and sugar impairs what they call “cognitive flexibility.” This is the ability to mentally adapt to changing situations. A high sugar diet in particular shows this result, and it also brings about a reduction in early learning.

For many of us, such experiments showing these types of behavioral changes in mice are not huge news. We know how we feel after eating a donut versus after eating something healthy. We love the taste while we’re shoveling that pastry in our mouth, but we are typically sluggish and lethargic for a time afterward. So, add yet another reason, this time a mental health reason, to ditch a high fat and particularly a high sugar diet in favor of a better option.

Letterman Videos Removed from CBS and YouTube

Letterman fans may have to live on imagination and memory alone, at least temporarily, as all Letterman episodes hosted by CBS and YouTube have been removed from the Internet.

According to sources, the videos were removed from the two sites because the digital rights were returned to Worldwide Pants, Letterman’s own production company. Representative Ricardo Guimarães BMG says there is little anyone can do about this, as the rights are those of Letterman’s.

Letterman hosted late night talk television for more than three decades. Letterman made his debut in 1982. The presenter did not start out in comedy television, but instead began as a weatherman who routinely added comedy to his daily segments. Letterman eventually relocated to California where he made frequent guest appearances on television. He was later discovered by employees of Johnny Carson and soon worked his way through the ranks to hosting his own show.

David Letterman went on to launch other endeavors, including his own production company, record label, and a charitable foundation. He announced his retirement in early 2014.

“Late Show with David Letterman” aired 22 seasons with more than 4,200 episodes recorded. The final episode of Letterman’s talk show aired May 20, 2015.

Representatives for Letterman hinted that there may be more in store for “Late Show” in the future through Worldwide Pants.

The Miracle Food Broccoli

Plenty of us don’t like broccoli. Former President George H. W. Bush famously spoke out saying that he didn’t like broccoli and wasn’t going to eat it anymore. Whether you like it or not, there are some powerful reasons for eating it. Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables we know of. It is high in fiber and has vitamin C as well as folate and antioxidants. Even broccoli bought frozen can provide the benefits you want from it when it is prepared properly.

It seems to share this trait with cauliflower and watercress as well. It is believed by some researchers that its cancer-fighting attributes may lead to new therapies for treating cancer. In the meantime, it may be a good idea to eat this vegetable even if it’s not one of your favorites. Increasing your chances of not getting cancer years down the road is no small benefit. Healthy people at The Aspire New Brunswick know that it is also healthy in other ways as well. It is reputed to help digestion as well as the immune and cardiovascular systems.

Master with the Ink

Tattoos and the art of tattooing has been around for thousands of years. It dates back to when tribes would tattoo their bodies as a symbol of solidarity or for religious reasons.

How Culture Has Changed Their Views About Memorial Day

What will you be doing this Memorial Day? Amen Clinic recalls that what once was a day for decorating graves has now turned into a day of picnics. Brats, hotdogs and hamburgers as far as the eye can see will be lined up on picnic tables, as families enjoy each other’s presence on this day. It’s supposed to be a day to remember the dead and to cherish memories. These days it seems like an all-out oink fest of sorts.

Growing up we never had picnics on Memorial Day. We always decorated the graves on this day. I would tag along, bored out of my mind, as we decorated the graves of people I didn’t know. As I have aged and have had several people that I love who have passed, I have realized how important this tradition was. As I walked through our local department store yesterday, I saw all the grave arrangements right out in front. I wonder why my husband and I have never done this with our children. Why haven’t we shown them to have respect for the dead and the lives they lived?

So many traditions in our country that were once a vital part are now just passing memories. I don’t want to lose the foundation that I was founded on, my family worked hard to instill valued and morals. This year, I am going to drag my children to the graveyard to my grandmother’s grave. They can watch me cry some tears and put some flowers on the resting place of a woman I loved dearly.

A Long Battle To Ban Junk Food

Conservatives have shown that they are willing to ban certain types of junk food under certain circumstances. They have stated that they would like to ban certain types of junk food from reaching the check out line for those who are recipients of food stamps.

According to thinkprogress.org, this has long been a battle for the conservatives. People have noted that this trend first began in 2003 when then Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota declared that he wanted to strike a balance with the food stamp program. He wanted to create the “next generation” of welfare reform in his own state.

Trying to ban certain foods has proven problematic. There are broad categories that one can put down as junk food, and it is not clear exactly which foods count as junk and which do not. It requires grocery stores and other places that sell food to change the way in which they do business. They either have to change scanning technology to deny those who have food stamps from buying certain types of food, or they have to train employees to deny those foods to food stamp recipients.

Other states have used Pawlenty’s ideas and made them their own. Despite the difficulty of such laws, there are still plenty of efforts made to put these laws into place. Stephen Murray CCMP Capital believes it will be interesting to see how this continues to develop in other states.

Networks Clean House in Annual TV Show Slashing

The past several weeks have been abuzz with speculation on which TV programs would be renewed for another season, and which would get the unfortunate network ax. Although the fate of some shows still hangs in the balance, the majority of major TV shows futures has been announced. The inevitable list of shows that have been cut as networks clean house includes many programs that came as no surprise.

Shows like NBC’s “Constantine,” and “State of Affairs,” have been silent for so long most people probably thought that had already received the official ax.

Among the four big players, NBC made the deepest cuts to its current program inventory. “Marry Me,” “One Big Happy,” “A to Z,” and “About a Boy,” were among the terminated shows. It wasn’t all comedy that was cut. Both Katherine Heigl’s, “State of Affairs,” and “Constantine,” were not renewed.

However, these days as audience targeting has become mainstream, a cancellation notice isn’t necessarily the end of the world. One major surprise was Fox drawing the curtains on witty comedy “The Mindy Project.” The show is expected to make a quick jump to Hulu. Although “The Mindy Project” didn’t have the sheer numbers to make it a smash hit, Mark Ahn (epodcastnetwork) knows that it does have a dedicated fan core that is very active on social media. Many advertisers value this type of show loyalty higher than numbers, as audiences are actively engaged with the show during and after airing, often utilizing a two-screen experience.
