PrettyLitter Helps Cat Owners Monitor Feline Health

Since most households in the U.S. have at least one pet, a significant number of Americans are familiar with the joys of being a cat parent. But, of course, it's not all sunshine and rainbows -- especially when it comes time to take your furry friend to the vet. It's estimated 80% of dogs and 70% cats show signs of dental disease by age three, leading to abscesses, loose teeth, and chronic pain. Not only do many felines have strong feelings about being locked in a carrier, but they also tend to hide their pain or discomfort, which makes it hard for owners to know whether there's reason for concern. But now, you might need only take a look in your kitty's litter box to assess whether it's time for a trip to the vet. Despite the fact that dumpsters are typically serviced at 60% or below f...

Study: Children With Divorced Parents Are Less Likely to Attend College

While the divorce rate seems to be slowing down, particularly among younger newlyweds who are waiting longer to tie the knot, that certainly doesn't mean that every marriage will end happily. In states like Tennessee, you'll have to wait anywhere between 60 and 90 days after drafting a divorce complaint before the legal dissolution of your marriage can take place. And if you share kids with your soon-to-be ex, you probably already know that a divorce can be even messier when children are involved. But while the immediate effects of divorce can be damaging enough, there's also evidence to suggest that divorce can have major long-term implications for children -- and that might include your child's pursuit of higher education. Most divorcing parents will focus their energy on developing a...

Debt Collection Agency Breach Exposes Data From Millions of Diagnostic Patients

In today's digital world, we're constantly trying to make data more convenient to access. Edge computing and mobile data centers, for instance, allow for expanded location options and make it possible for companies to move these resources virtually anywhere in the world. Coupled with liquid immersion cooling -- which can also improve data center design, location, and rack density -- these improvements make it possible for users to obtain data at lightning-fast speeds. Unfortunately, that may also mean that this data is more vulnerable than ever. Whether mobile data centers are utilized or not, security breaches are becoming more common all the time. We're all too willing to connect to a public WiFi connection, enter our passwords and credit card information, and send emails containing s...

Study Shows Teens and Young Adults Are Still Receiving High Numbers of Opioid Prescriptions

People may take medication for a variety of reasons -- from surgery recovery to a life-long illness to chronic sleep issues, which affect up to 18% of U.S. adults, medication can be beneficial for certain situations. But in recent years, the U.S. has seen an increase in opioid prescriptions, which has turned into a nationwide crisis. And a new study shows that opioid prescriptions for adolescents and young adults still remain high. In this study, researchers looked at data from two surveys that were conducted by the National Center for Health. The data was from 2005 to 2015 and looked at patients between the ages of 13 and 22 who had visits to emergency rooms and outpatient clinics during that time period. During this time period there were over 78,000 patients in that age group who took...

Ireland Citizens Vote to Lessen Strict Divorce Laws

Global divorce rates are higher than they've ever been before -- in the United States, around 40% to 50% of married couples end up getting divorced. Unfortunately, many countries have strict laws that make finalizing a divorce difficult. But the Republic of Ireland has officially voted to lessen divorce laws. Under current divorce laws, there is a clause that states couples looking to get a divorce must be separated for four of the five previous years to be granted a divorce. A recent referendum saw 82.1% of voters wanted to remove this clause, making getting a divorce significantly easier as lawmakers will decide on an updated separation period. Charlie Flanagan, Minister for Justice and Equality, tweeted after the vote saying the majority support for the change in law was "very positiv...

AAA Study Says Regular Exercise Can Help Seniors Improve Their Driving

As people age, their reactions slow, they may experience more fatigue, and they can have difficulty completing everyday tasks. This is why about 52% of people who turn 65 will need some level of long-term care services. And a new AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety study has found that some of these factors, including increased fatigue and poor physical functioning, are factors leading older adults to limit their driving. Researchers at Columbia University were commissioned by the AAA Foundation to look into eight different factors that could help determine how changes in health could impact driving mobility in seniors. The factors included sleep disturbance, pain interference, depression, fatigue, anxiety, physical functioning, participation in social activities, and pain intensity. Among...

Time To Call A Lawyer? When You Should Seek Legal Help

Few people rarely choose to deal with the legal system, and on most occasions, people look to avoid interacting with the law however they can. Unfortunately, sometimes things don't go according to plan, and you'll need to contact a legal professional. Not every situation will require a legal team to handle, however, so use this list as a starting point for when you should seek out a lawyer. DUIs And Arrests One of the most widely recognized times when you might need a lawyer is when you're arrested. However, not all crimes lead to an arrest, but you'll still want a strong legal team on your side. For one example, look at DUIs, sometimes called DWIs (driving while intoxicated) or OWIs (operating while intoxicated). In Michigan, a motorist less than 21 can be charged with a Zero Tolerance ...

Coconut Oil Was Seen as a Healthy Alternative, But It’s Actually Way Worse For You

Coconut oil has recently received a ton of praise for its supposed health benefits. Therefore, it's been embraced by a number of Americans looking to make better nutritional choices. But as it turns out, this oil might not be nearly as beneficial to your physical well-being as you thought. In fact, it could end up being seriously bad for you. Coconut oil has been used for, among other things, the improvement of dental health. Since approximately 99.7% of adults believe a healthy smile is socially important, it's no surprise that the practice of oil pulling became overwhelmingly popular a few years back. Swishing coconut oil through your mouth for a prolonged period will purportedly get rid of unwanted bacteria, alleviate bad breath, or even whiten your teeth. Some dentists agree that wh...
