At a recent press conference, NASA scientists addressed rumors surrounding the Mayan calendar. Scientists say people misinterpret the end of a certain cycle on the calendar to mean the world will end on December 21st, 2012, and that Mayan scholars say the Mayans would not have interpreted the date to signal the apocalypse. Scientists addressed popular rumors such as: a rogue planet will collide with earth and kill everyone, and the danger of killer solar flares. Scientists say neither of those issues are a concern, and that the greatest threat to Earth in the foreseeable future is from the human race itself. (Huffington Post)
So, just in case you thought you could escape those end of the month bills, better think again!

Here’s the deal! French and Swedish researchers find exposure to blue light may improve alertness in night drivers as much as a cup of coffee. The blue light exposure is known to stop the secretion of melatonin; that’s the hormone that causes sleepiness, into the body. Researchers had a group of volunteers drive at night 3 different nights. During each of the nights the volunteers were given coffee, or were exposed to continuous blue light. Researchers found that drinking caffeinated coffee and exposure to blue light both improved driving alertness about the same amount. (Daily Mail)
Give me coffee anyday! There’s just something about the smell that I LOVE; maybe even more than the coffee itself. And besides, whenever I see a blue light, I think of “get ready K-Mart Shoppers, we have a Blue Light Special on Aisle 9.”
Results of a new study published in the journal Psychological Science has found sadness can lead to impulsive, and irresponsible financial choices. No kidding!
For the study, participants watched either a sad or neutral video and then were offered a monetary reward. They were given a choice- they could receive the money after the session, or receive a bigger reward that would be mailed to them in the future. Those who watched the neutral video chose to have the reward mailed to them 13-to-34% more often than people who watched the sad video.
Scientists involved with the study say people who are sad tend to focus more on the present, rather than the future. (Women's Health)
A new study finds that most Americans think old age is not represented by a birthday, but by a person's actions.
For the study, researchers interviewed people in their 80’s, their family members, and their paid caregivers. They found that the ability to participate in certain activities, such as grocery shopping or attending medical appointments, serve as a way of identifying if someone is "old."
Oregon State University researcher Michelle Barnhart found says that society views and treats people in their 80’s and 90’s as "not old" if they are aware, active, safe or independent. (Live Science)
NOT OLD? AND THEY’RE IN THEIR 80’s and 90’s?
Lemme tells ya folks, that’s OLD…I’m decades from it and I’m old now…yes, I do everything for myself but not nearly as fast or with as much fun as I once did. Admit it, old is nothing to be ashamed of, it is a sign that you have lots of memories and hopefully lots of loved ones with whom to share them.
More stores will be starting Black Friday sales before you even have time to digest your turkey. Walmart, Target, Toys "R" Us, and Sears will start their sales on Thanksgiving at 8 p.m. while Macy's and Kohl's will open at midnight.

So what about you? Good idea…quite frankly, I LOVE IT! But would YOU shop on Thanksgiving?

A new study by Australian researchers finds ever hour of television watched after the age of 25 reduces the viewer's life expectancy by about 22-minutes. SEE I TOLD YA TO LISTEN TO THE RADIO INSTEAD!
For the study, researchers surveyed 12-thousand Australian adults. Participants were asked about general health, disease status, how many hours of TV they watch per day, and more.
