IS HE WORTH THE EFFORT?

Okay, so you're not Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, Marilyn Monroe, or some other great sex goddess of the past or present -- but you'd still like to impress a man. No problem. Just follow a few easy tips Dr. Ursula Van Heern shared with Relationships magazine.

Practice being independent
It takes a lot of pressure off of men if they know you can make decisions on your own and they aren't going to suddenly find themselves in a situation where they have to take care of you.

Don't play the dumb broad
If you do that, he's going to believe you really are a dumb broad -- and then you can be stuck with the role. And do you really want a man who would want a woman like that?

Dress well
And that doesn't always mean dress sexy. Sure, men love garter belts, black-seamed stockings and stiletto heels. But save those for the right occasion.

Don't worry if you don't look like a supermodel
After all, you don't expect every guy you meet to look like Tom Cruise or The Rock. Just do the best with what you've got -- and don't pick your teeth with your fingernails. It's class that counts most, not looks.

Be sociable and open
If that hunk who's caught your eye sees you surrounded by a bunch of other guys, he's going to wonder what your secret is.

Remember that guys like compliments, too
If you like his cologne or something he's wearing -- tell him about it. And if you're really interested, you can compliment him -- even if you don't like his choices of cologne or clothes.

Know when to put the cork in the wine bottle
Drinking too much lowers inhibitions, and could make you say or do things you'll regret later.

Be appreciative
Say "thanks" when thanks is in order, and say it with a smile.

Ask about his hobbies and other interests
While you're encouraging him to talk about himself, listen carefully and let him know you're interested -- by asking intelligent questions.

Be relaxed and easy to get along with
The more comfortable you are, the more comfortable people around you will be. Remember, he may be just as nervous as you are.

YOU PROBABLY THINK THIS STUDY IS ABOUT YOU

A study of Americans reveals that, contrary to popular opinion, guys are vainer than women. Here are the statistics, from Brandweek magazine. Read 'em and weep fellas:
  • Slightly more than half -- 51 percent -- of the men said they wish they were thinner. And 70 percent of those have dieted. 
  • Men fear gaining weight (36 percent) more than cancer (35 percent) or having heart attacks (34 percent). 
  • One quarter fret over growing bald, while 23 percent agonize over looking old. 
  • Approximately 1-in-3 men admitted to having plucked an eyebrow hair or two -- or more. 
  • A plucky 4 percent waxed their backs. Ouch. 
  • 1-in-5 said they've confided in a therapist, while 13 percent have taken an anti-depressant. 
  • For all their talk of sexual conquests, only 3 percent claim to have had 75-plus partners, while the largest percentage of men -- 43 percent -- confess to a far more modest tally of one to five lovers.

THINGS YOU'LL BE SURPRISED TO FIND OUT YOUR DOG HATES

(Answers.com)

Hugging

There aren't too many people who don't enjoy hugging their dogs. However, there are quite a few dogs that hate it when you hug them. In the wild, hugging, or rather one dog placing his paw on another dog's back, is a way of establishing dominance. When you hug your dog, he may feel threatened or challenged.

Walking Without Exploring

Rainy or cold days are the worst for letting your dog do what comes naturally. You don't want to be stuck outside for what seems like hours while your dog sniffs every tree, fire hydrant, and piece of grass he can find. Dogs hate not being able to sniff because smelling an object is how they learn and 'see.' Even if you let your dog sniff for a couple of minutes, you'll be doing him a huge favor.

Teasing

Typically, children are guiltier of teasing dogs than adults, but plenty of grown-ups think it's funny. Teasing by barking at a barking dog or pulling a dog's tail not only upsets the dog, it shows the world how immature a person truly is.

Being Lazy

Dogs, like people need stimulation. They hate lying around waiting for something to happen. Dogs need to be mentally and physically stimulated for them to be happy and stay out of trouble.

Patting

Imagine how you would feel is someone came up to you and began to pet your face and head. Most dogs tolerate this type of behavior, but that doesn't mean they like it. Dogs, like people, need their personal space.

Being Too Lenient

Dogs are pack animals and you are the pack leader. In the wild, dogs look to the pack leader to set boundaries and make the rules. Domesticated dogs need this same kind of structure. If you don't make rules, they will undoubtedly do something you don't like.

Dressing Up Your Dog

Most dogs do not like playing dress-up. They will sometimes tolerate getting stuffed into a silly costume, but the concept still isn't really a thing to them. They just understand that their movement and vision is often constricted while wearing the costume. If you dress your dog up, take a quick picture and monitor the dog to see his or her reaction. Take the costume off if your dog seems uncomfortable.

Leaving Them Home Alone

Dogs are pack animals and want a leader. When they are left home alone, some dogs act out because of their anxiety. Certain breeds like Labradors, Retrievers, and Terriers are often more affected by being left alone, although any dog can suffer from separation anxiety. Make sure you have a routine that you can stick to so your pet understands when you will leave and come home.

Looking a Dog in the Eye

Although this rule applies to some pets, it is really for those folks who approach a strange dog while looking him in the eye. In the wild, dogs challenge one another by staring each other in the eye. For your own safety, never approach a dog while you're staring at it.

Too Much Baby Talk

Dogs do not understand our language except for key words and phrases they're able to associate the sound with a specific action or response. If you baby talk your dog too much, the mumbled phrases you're saying to them just won't be comprehend. You could possibly run into a situation where your dog ignores you all together.

Being Tense

Dogs have the uncanny ability to pick up on their human's emotions. If you're tense, dogs sense that and feed off it. It stresses the dog when you're feeling stressed out, especially when you're walking the dog. Try to relax and enjoy the time with your canine friend.

Forcing People on Your Dog

If your dog doesn't like someone, chances are, there's a good reason. Forcing your dog to interact with a person he doesn't like only causes him stress and may make him like the person even less.

SAVE YOUR WAY TO ZERO STRESS

If you feel like you're in a constant state of worry about money, at least take comfort in knowing you're not alone: 68 percent of women lose sleep over their finances, compared with 56 percent of men, a recent survey from CreditCards.com found. "Women tend to be consequential thinkers. We are wired for concern about safety and domestic security," explains New York-based psychotherapist Kachina Myers, who specializes in helping clients with financial issues. "And money, of course, creates that security." Redbook magazine spoke with Emily Guy Birken, author of End Financial Stress Now, on how to build an emergency fun. Start like this:

Be realistic

Instead of an overly lofty savings goal, aim for an achievable amount of a flat $1,000. Start by saving $10 per pay period. "For most people, $10 out of their paycheck is not an amount that is going to be missed," Birken says. Have it automatically transferred to a savings account, and then in three months, raise it to $15 per pay period. If you realize you won't miss $30 from a paycheck, do that. The point: Just start somewhere.

Add to it

Hit that $1,000 mark. Now you can return to that goal of having three to six months' worth of expenses saved up. See where you can cut back on your weekly spending. Once you get there salt away money for various irregular expenses. Like a monthly car repair fund, even when you don't need a repair. That way the money will be there when you do. Perhaps a monthly Vet fund. Things we all know will come up and cut into our monthly cash.

Keep it separate

An emergency fund needs to be two things: inconvenient to dip into you you're not tempted to skim from it, but still accessible for an emergency. Sounds like a unicorn of a bank account. But this sort of thing does exist: online, high-interest saving accounts. Web-based banks often have better interest rates than their brick-and-mortar competitor. Generally it takes a couple of business days to transfer money from an online account to your checking account.

Think about yourself

"No matter how rock-solid your relationship may be, there are no guarantees in life," warns Birken. "So you need some kind of financial independence in case something were to happen to your marriage or your spouse." In addition to your family's emergency fund, it's not a bad idea to have your own. If you're not bringing in a paycheck, you can build this fund by using any cash you get for birthdays, and holidays. Set aside a small portion.

I MUST BE REALLY SMART

Are you disorganized? Research says that's a good thing. "In Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation" by Steven Johnson, he says "the more disorganized your brain is, the smarter you are." Across the board, in Johnson's book and other sources it seems pretty clear that creativity is messy. Ideas need to be sloshing around or crashing in to one another to produce breakthroughs:
  • Having multiple hobbies allows your brain to subconsciously compare and contrast problems and solutions, forming new connections at the margins of each. 
  • Similarly, reading multiple books at the same time vs serially lets your brain juxtapose new ideas and develop new connections. 
  • Wandering minds are more creative. 
  • Studying a field "too much" doesn't limit creativity -- it does the opposite. More ideas banging about just produces even more ideas. 
  • The "accept everything" mantra of brainstorming doesn't work. Debate is far more effective. Let those ideas fight. 
  • ADD and bipolar disorder are both associated with greater creativity. When you're drunk or exhausted your brain is poised for breakthroughs. 
  • Even with teams, it's better to mix up experience levels, familiarity with one another and other factors to keep things rough around the edges.

SURPRISING SCIENTIFIC FACTS ABOUT FIRSTBORN CHILDREN

(thestir.cafemom.com) If you're a parent, chances are you've thought about birth order and how it affects your kids. Am I harder on my firstborn? Do my kids have a normal sibling relationship? Does the order in which the kids were born really matter in the long run? Turns out it does. Scientists have done extensive studies on family make-up and how it affects not only how you parent, but your kids' health and personalities. Wonder if your oldest child is like most firstborns? Here's what science has to say:

1. They go that extra mile for an education. When researchers at the University of Essex's Institute for Social and Economic Research surveyed 3,553 individuals (1,503 groups of siblings), they found that the oldest children in families had a 16 percent greater chance of going to college as compared to their younger siblings.

2. They're born to learn. Is your oldest child a bit of a know-it-all? It could be because of their birth order. Firstborns really are born to learn, according to a 2013 study, published in the Journal of Research in Personality. Researchers at Belgium's Ghent University found that birth order actually affects a child's lifelong goals. The eldest child, they found, wants to "master" or "learn," while the second child tends to want to "win." It certainly goes hand-in-hand with number one, doesn't it? Other studies have also shown firstborns (and only children) tend to pick more academic-oriented careers as compared to their younger siblings.

3. They may be at risk for diabetes. A study out of New Zealand and published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism claims children who were born first have greater difficulty absorbing sugars into the body and higher daytime blood pressure than kids who were born later in the birth order. And no, it's not because of childhood obesity because ...

4. They're skinnier. That same study that found firstborns are at risk for diabetes also found eldest children tend to be taller and slimmer than their younger siblings. Why? Scientists think it comes down to the mother's uterus -- which changes after her first pregnancy.

5. They get more from Mom and Dad. Think you're equally dividing your time among your kids? Scientists disagree. When Cornell researchers dove into the quality time issue, they found the eldest child receives 20 to 30 more minutes of quality time each day with a parent than a second-born child of the same age from a similar family. Another study at Brigham Young had similar findings -- they estimate firstborns get about 3,000 more hours of quality time with their parents between ages 4 and 13 than the next sibling gets when they pass through the same age range.

6. They're more creative ... sometimes. Still debating the age gap between your kids? This might make up your mind -- when scientists at Washington University in St. Louis studied siblings, they found that firstborn kids tended to be more creative than later-born kids if they had younger siblings of the opposite sex or if their younger siblings were less than three years younger. Not surprisingly, big age differences tend to push oldest kids into parental surrogate roles, while smaller age differences allow for more playtime -- and thus more creativity.

7. They're smarter. Well, their IQs tend to be higher anyway! A study published in the journal, Science, reveals about a two-point gap between firstborn men and men born later in the birth order, with the firstborns coming out ahead. Interestingly, the "oldest sibling" in families where the eldest child died also tended to perform better on the IQ tests.

8. They're bossy ... if they're females. Sorry Sheryl Sandberg, but the science is in, and it turns out some girls are, indeed, bossy. Not only did researchers at the Southern California Child Study Center find bossiness to be more prevalent in firstborns, but they found it to be based on gender, with eldest girls more likely to be domineering than eldest boys.

9. They're more prone to asthma and allergies. Does your eldest child have breathing issues? It might be because of their birth order! According to research presented at the American Thoracic Society's 2008 International Conference, genes act differently in firstborn kids, particularly the genes responsible for asthma and allergies!

10. They have it the hardest. Tougher on your oldest child? You're not alone! When economists from Duke University and Washington University tackled the topic of parental rules and birth order, they found earlier-born siblings are more likely to be subject to strict rules and parental monitoring and more likely to face harsh consequences for wrongdoing than younger siblings.

11. They're less likely to suffer from PTSD. Nobody wants to think about their kids going through a traumatic situation, but have heart. Research out of England's University of Sheffield shows firstborns are less likely than their siblings to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. The scientist behind the study isn't quite sure why -- he surmises that younger siblings are more likely to take risks and put themselves in traumatic situations, but it may also be down to parenting style. Other studies have also found firstborns are significantly less susceptible to anxiety or depression.

How to Get a Good Night's Sleep

Want a better night's sleep? The secret may be as simple as writing down a "To-Do" list for tomorrow. Researchers at Baylor University's Sleep Neuroscience and Cognition Laboratory have did a study showing that people who write out a to-do list before bedtime fell asleep an average of nine minutes quicker than those who didn't. That's comparable to the improvement seen with some sleep medicines. The study's lead author, Michael Scullin says, "Most people just cycle through their to-do lists in their heads, and so we wanted to explore whether the act of writing them down could counteract nighttime difficulties with falling asleep." During the study, 57 men and women between the ages of 18 and 30 were split into two groups. The first group was told to write out a to-do list for five minutes while the other group was asked to write about already-completed tasks for the same amount of time. Subjects were then told to go straight to bed. Scullin says, "There are two schools of thought about this. One is that writing about the future would lead to increased worry about unfinished tasks and delay sleep, while journaling about completed activities should not trigger worry. The alternative hypothesis is that writing a to-do list will ‘offload' those thoughts and reduce worry." The study was published in the January issue of the Journal of Experimental Psychology.

The Ultimate Sweaty Gym Guy Repellant

Hey ladies! Tired of those stinky sweaty guys hitting on you in the gym when you're just trying to get your workout on? While some people find gyms excellent for flirting and socializing, the vast majority of us just want to be left alone. Well author and Twitter user Olivia Cole says she's discovered one sure-fire way of protecting your privacy, space and time when you're trying to get fit. She was down the gym the other day and saw two women working out together when some guy started approaching. Rather than bothering to let him try to start a conversation, one woman immediately told him that she'd just farted so might want to keep his distance. Worked like a charm. And she was like 21 says Cole. Her friend then asked, "Did you really?" The girl said, "Of course not." Cole added, "I literally screamed in the gym. Turned it into a cough so I didn't give her away." (Metro)

Worst Father Ever: The Continuing Saga

In Brisbane, Australia, a 51-year-old father is going to prison for a year after he photoshopped his teenage stepdaughter into pornographic photos involving himself. He said he did so because he was morally outraged after his stepdaughter, then aged 16, told him she was becoming sexually active with her boyfriend. Somehow he thought this would teach her a lesson. But, Brisbane District Court Judge Leanne Clare dismissed his claims as "implausible," saying he had been sexually obsessed with the girl he had raised since she was two. In fact the court learned he created the images in late 2014, just months after he was given a suspended sentence for touching his stepdaughter inappropriately while she slept. He used Photoshop to digitally add images of the girl when she was about 13 onto the bodies of adult women engaged in sexual acts with himself. The world's worst father was arrested in September 2015 after being caught with around 100 images on hard drives in his luggage as he returned to Brisbane from a trip to South Africa. He described the photos as "artworks" and said there was no sexual motivation behind their creation. However, he pleaded guilty to four charges including possessing or producing child pornography material outside Australia, and importing and exporting objectionable goods without approval.

Hey It's Been Too Long Since We Had a Good Birther Debate

Hey Obama left the White House over a year ago. So it's high time we got back on this birther thing. Or at least former Sheriff Joe Arpaio seems to think so. Now a candidate for Senate, Arpaio has somehow turned the massive text-alert gaffe in Hawaii over a nonexistent missile as a way to dredge back up the birther controversy over President Obama's birth certificate. In a Fox News interview, Arpaio said "There's something wrong with that government. I know doing a certain investigation on a fake, fraudulent government document. They can't even solve that case." At that point, Fox News interviewer Jeanine Pirro pushed back and informed Arpaio that Hawaii had, in fact, produced the birth certificate proving that Obama was a US citizen. But the 85-year-old Arpaio, a longtime "birther" who is running for Jeff Flake's seat in Arizona, wouldn't budge and said, "Well, the only thing I'm saying is they can't even solve a phony document." Pirro again countered him, "because they did solve that," and moved on. It's not the first time Arpaio has addressed the subject in his short candidacy. Just one day after announcing last week, he told CNN that he's sure Obama's birth certificate is fake. (ABC News)

Death by Bungee

Authorities in Colorado are investigating how Ciara Romero, a 20-year-old nurse, fell to her death in a bungee jump accident - when the equipment was apparently working properly. Ciara Romero died at the 70-foot Get Air attraction at the Silo Trampoline Park in Grand Junction. Participants leap off a tower connected to a bungee rope attached to a harness. After free-falling for around 20 feet, they are supposed be caught by the device and slowly lowered to the ground. The company that makes the device says it carried out tests and the "device, webbing, and triple-locking carabiner were found to be intact, and functioning normally." State investigators say they will now focus on witness statements, and the Grand Junction Police Department says no criminal charges will be filed. According a a police report, employees and other witnesses said Romero was reluctant to jump. "She was hesitant, you know, pretty freaked out," one employee told police, "Kind of scared, but excited to go." Video shows employees checking to make sure the harness was properly attached, the report says. The report states that an employee told investigators that it was possible Romero's hand could have slipped and opened the carabiner. The employee said this would have been very difficult, though an officer wrote that he "found the carabiner to be relatively easy to open with one hand" and believes it could have happened accidentally.

God is Dead

Doug Harvey umpired in the National League from 1962 through 1992, and was a crew chief for 18 seasons. He was so sure of his calls on the diamond, he ended every game the same way. Following the last out, Harvey would take his wad of chewing tobacco and fling it on home plate. "He was held in such regard by major league players and managers they called him "God." Sadly, Mr. Harvey died Saturday at age 87. During his amazing Hall-of-Fame career, he worked five World Series, including the plate for Kirk Gibson's extraordinary home run in the 1988 opener, and six All-Star Games. His 4,673 games in the regular season rank fifth. Ironically, that signature chewing tobacco habit lead to the development of oral cancer in 1997, after which he spoke publicly about the dangers of smokeless tobacco. Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement: "A generation of umpires learned as a result of Doug's example, his eagerness to teach the game, and his excellent timing behind the plate." In particular, Harvey would take an extra split-second to call a play, to be sure he got it right. Over his 31 seasons, Harvey ejected 58 people. The first person he tossed was Joe Torre, as a player in 1962; his last ejection was Torre, too, as a manager in 1992. "You always respected him because he came out to do his job and (did it) with a lot of class," once recalled Torre, a fellow Hall of Famer. Harvey once said, "I always tell my wife, if you're looking for something to put on my gravestone, put down: 'He was an honest man and he never held a grudge.'" (Newser)

What the What?

Amanda Teague is a 45-year-old professional Jack Sparrow impersonator in Northern Ireland. Yes, Jack Sparrow the pirate. And she just married his ghost. No kidding. The fact that Sparrow died almost 300 years ago barely affects their marriage at all. Teague had five children with her human ex-husband, but said she has never been able to connect with anyone like the ghost of Jack. Although she has never seen Jack's physical form, Amanda said he was a Haitian pirate, who told her he is black with jet black hair, and was executed for his crimes in the 1700s. Teague believes their pirate connection is what brought them together - first as friends before she developed "strong loving feelings" towards him. She claims her family has been entirely supportive of their relationship, which took the next step when Jack proposed. The wedding took place on a boat in international waters where their union would be legal. In attendance were 12 of close friends and family members. They used a psychic to allow Jack to say "I do," and used a skull and crossbones flag to represent him. And yes, this marriage has been consummated. Teague says, "You can literally feel the physical act of what the spirit is doing to you, and the spirit can feel it too." Sounds like somebody's due for a check-up from the neck up! (Metro)
