Can “Weak” Immune Systems Be Enhanced?

I collect license plates. A peculiar hobby to be sure, but I find it to be spine-tingling fun and very inexpensive. Requirements: one flashlight, one screwdriver, two good sneakers. I have been fascinated with plates since the day, with my mother leading me by the hand through a busy Sears parking lot, I came across a Hawaiian license plate. Certain things seem to more...

Macular Degenerates

I caught the Perseid meteor showers last summer, or at least I watched them, or at least I tried to. August's celestial showcase, performed on the northeast stage of heaven's amphitheatre, is an exercise in aggravation to many of us who would actually like to see this shooting star spectacle.

Although it is often said that people who dream in color may have a mental illness, this has proven to be a myth.  Research reveals that about 75% of our dreams are in color but apparently it wasn’t always that way.  According to studies in the middle of the 20th century developed by a fellow by the name of Dr. Sigmund Freud, most people dreamt only in black and white more...

What do I do about a drippy nose?

“Son,” I announced turning to my 12-year-old slumped in his seat in a when-will-we-get-there pose, “I want to stop in this next town and show you the greatest sign ever posted in sports arenas anywhere.” He probably thought I was losing my few remaining marbles when we pulled into the tiny dry gulch town of Ashcroft, BC.

Old People Smell

Despite how your grandfather’s knitted sweater smells it’s actually a myth that the person who wears it has an offensive odor.  In fact, scientists have revealed that the older a person is, the less stinky their body parts become.  In a study published earlier this year, it appears that young and middle-aged individuals are more likely to give off a noxious scent more...

Flies Get Restless Legs

Did you know that humans aren’t the only species that complain of restless legs?  In fact, researchers have discovered that even fruit flies suffer fidgeting and sleep disturbances secondary to restless leg syndrome (RLS) much like many of us two legged creatures.  Scientists at Emory University School of Medicine were able to prove that a gene called BTBD9 was more...
