MEN WHO COMPLIMENT A WOMAN BEFORE ASKING HER OUT ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET A "YES
" A recent study finds that men who gave a woman a simple compliment before asking her out were 16-percent more likely to get a date than guys who did not give a compliment. Dating expert Tracey Steinberg says this may happen because most women work hard to look good and that when they know a man appreciates their beauty it makes them want to get to know him better.

MANY PEOPLE WOULD RATHER HAVE A ROOT CANAL THAN WORK WHILE ON VACATION
A new survey finds Americans are very serious about their vacations. The study was commissioned by Ricoh Americas Corp. and was conducted online by Harris Interactive. The survey covered over two-thousand adults, and found that half of those who said they have taken a vacation said they'd rather get a root canal than work while on vacation. Sixty-seven-percent of those who have taken a vacation said their families resented it if they worked while away, and three-quarters said their employer did not make it easy to access work-related documents remotely. However, 67-percent of those who took a vacation said that checking work e-mail eased their return to work. Vice president of strategic marketing at Ricoh said, "Workers absolutely must have a chance to recharge themselves, their families and their career. Employers ignore this need at their peril."

FATHER'S DAY GIFTS TO AVOID THIS YEAR
1.)HAIR LOSS REMEMDIES. MAYBE HE NEEDS IT OR EVEN SORT OF WANTS SOMEONE TO BUY IT FOR HIM. STILL, SAVE IT FOR AN EVERYDAY PRESENT AND GIVE DAD SOMETHING ELSE ON FATHER'S DAY INSTEAD. 2) BACK SHAVER. KEEP THE GROOMING GIFTS TO THINGS THAT FEEL MORE LUXE AND PAMPERING THAN HYGENIC AND PERSONAL, LIKE A BADGER SHAVING BRUSH JAMES BOND WOULD LOVE. 3) COLOGNE. DAD'S GOING TO WANT TO PICK OUT THE SCENT HIMSELF - IT'S A PERSONAL THING. 4) APRONS. IF DAD SPENDS A LOT OF TIME IN THE KITCHEN, IT MIGHT SEEM LIKE A GOOD IDEA. BUT HE'LL PROBABLY BE MORE EXCITED BY A GADGET LIKE A SINGLE-CUP COFFEE MAKER OR A JUICER OR AN ELECTRIC BBQ FORK. 5) FANCY DESK ACCESSORIES. IT'S AN UNDERSTANDABLE THOUGHT WHEN DAD IS THE DEFINITION OF THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING. BUT HE'D PROBABLY WANT SOMETHING MORE FUN TO PLAY WITH IN HIS OFFICE, THEN, LIKE A TOY DRONE HELICOPTER OR A DESKTOP RECORD PLAYER. 6) "#1 DAD" ANYTHING. BEST DAD" OR "#1 DAD" MOTIFS ARE CHEESY, BUT YOU CAN STILL LET HIM KNOW HE'S THE BEST DAD EVER BY GIVING HIM OTHER STUFF LIKE COOL BEER STEINS. 7) TIES. IF DAD LOVES TIES AND YOU FIND ONE THAT HE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT, THEN GO FOR IT! BUT FOR THE MOST PART THIS GIFT IS TOO CLICHÉ. PICK AN ACCESSORY THAT HE'LL GET THE MOST USE OF THIS SUMMER, LIKE A CLASSIC PAIR OF SUNGLASSES. ??? TRIVIA ??? How many fathers are there in the U.S.? : More than 70-million. Source: History.com ---

MEN SETTLE ON THEIR FAVORITE HAIRSTYLE AT AGE 32
A survey by hair product bran Fudge finds that men tend to keep their hairstyles the same from age 32 on. The study covered two-thousand people, and asked about men's hair styles and celebrity influence on their hair choices. They survey found that men usually settle on their favorite hairstyle by age 32 after trying out five different cuts, and 65-percent of men say they stick with one style because it's convenient, while 10-percent said it's because their partner likes it. One-in-five men said they wanted to grow out their hair longer to copy celebrities like David Beckham or Bradley Cooper, and two-thirds said they'd rather go grey like George Clooney than have their hairline start to recede. And interestingly enough, 12-percent of men said they'd consider dying their hair grey to keep up with fashion trends. (Daily Mail) ---

WHITE PEOPLE ARE DYING FASTER THAN THEY ARE BEING BORN
The U.S. Census Bureau says that in 2012 more white people died than were born. The experts say the trend is likely to continue in coming years. To find this, researchers simply subtracted the number of deaths from the number of births, and found a decrease of 12,400 people among the nation's 198-million non-Hispanic whites. Severak demographers say they are not aware of any other time in U.S. history when there was such a decrease in population among the dominant racial group. No other racial group showed a similar falloff. Researchers say this is happening in part because fertility rates have been slowly dropping since 2007, and for white women, they are now below the level considered necessary to keep the population at a stable level. ---

EXPERT SAYS WE MAY HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO TALK TO OUR PETS WITHIN 10 YEARS
--- One animal behavior expert says we may be able to talk with our pets in the next ten years. Professor Con Slobodchikoff says he is using new artifical intelligence software to record the calls of prairie dogs and translate them into English, and says eventually it could be used to interpert other animals. The professor says, "I think we have the technology now to be able to develop the devices that are, say, the size of a cellphone that would allow us to talk to our dogs and cats." The professor thinks if the technology is created it will help protect many animals from euthanasia as communication with them would then be possible. ---
