Learning From Your Mistakes is a Big Mistake!

Learning From Your Mistakes is a Big Mistake!
As it turns out, trying to learn from your mistakes isn't such a good idea. Reporting in the Journal of Consumer Psychology, scientists from Vanderbilt University say that focusing on the past appears to put people in worse moods and may even be self-fulfilling. "Be very careful when you ask anybody to dig up the past," says Kelly Haws, an associate professor of marketing and coauthor of the study. She adds that looking forward tends to be far more effective explaining, "You don't buy the $700 boots, because you want to go on that trip to Europe. You study instead of party because you want a good score on the test. It's generally a more effective way to try to make decisions." To study this, the team divided subjects into two groups, asking one to remember their self-control "successes," the other their "failures," reports Futurity. They also asked participants to remember different number…

Millennials Totally Cool with Funeral Selfies!

Millennials Totally Cool with Funeral Selfies!
It seems for millennials, every time is the right time for a selfie. Evan funerals! Yep, a new study by Luster Premium White says one in five millennials are OK with taking a selfie at a funeral! It gets worse: 47 percent are perfectly OK with snapping a selfie while in the throes of childbirth, 50 percent are down with naked selfies, and 30 percent have no problem with taking a selfie during sex. Considering that the survey estimates that the average millennial spends around 54 hours a year taking selfies, it's doubtful there will be any kind of "selfie control" anytime soon.(Huffington Post)

Tinder Outraged That They Would Be Associated with STDs!

Tinder Outraged That They Would Be Associated with STDs!
Who in their right mind could ever think that Tinder could be associated with STDs? The popular "hook-up" app has sent a cease and desist letter to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation after a billboard went up in Los Angeles last week that draws a link between dating apps and a growing rate of sexually transmitted diseases. Probably didn't help that the billboard was located near the West Hollywood headquarters of Tinder. The foundation said the billboard's purpose is to raise awareness about the increasing STD rate and to encourage dating-app users to get regular screenings or a "free STD check." The billboard features silhouettes of people and the words "Tinder, Chlamydia, Grindr, Gonorrhea." Whitney Engeran-Cordova, the foundation's public health division director, said, "In many ways, location-based mobile dating apps are becoming a digital bathhouse for millennials wherein the next s…

Lord of the Crows

Lord of the Crows
Now for your feel good story of the day. All we know is the man has a Snap Chat account and recently documented an amazing tale of a good deed. The man recently came across a crow with his head stuck in a fence. So he carefully freed the suffering bird, decided to name it Russell (after that guy from Gladiator) and nurse it back to health. Once restored to health, the inevitable heartbreaking moment comes when the crow and his Good Samaritan have to part ways. Apparently it's not only elephants who never forget-- also crows. Russell came back to thank the man, bringing with him a whole flock of his friends. It seemed a little creepy at first but the murder of crows, as they are properly called, just hung out in the guy's backyard and fence for a while before taking off again. Kind of just a crowey way of saying, thanks bro. (Metro)

What the What?

What the What?
During a news conference Thai police said they have identified the motive for the deadly bombing at the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok last August: Human trafficking. Police Chief Somyot Pumpanmuang said authorities had "destroyed" a human trafficking network, and the bombing was revenge for that -- not for Thailand sending Muslim Uighur people back to China as was once suspected. A man they arrested in August was the man spotted in surveillance footage from the shrine wearing a yellow shirt, and has confessed to his role in the bombing. Another man was arrested who used a cell phone to trigger the bomb. So, since the police themselves solved the crime, they then saw fit to give themselves 3 million bhat, or $83,000 in reward money. No kidding. (Reuters)

Your Parrot's Talking is Against the Law!

Your Parrot's Talking is Against the Law!
In Avalon, New Jersey, Elaine Scattergood used to place her parrots, Edmund and Arthur, on the front porch where neighbors walking by would often stop and say hello and the parrots would reply with a greeting. But not anymore. It seems other grumpy neighbors complained and called police. The case actually ended up in court where a judge told Scattergood the noise complaint will be dismissed if there are no violations reported in the next 90 days. (The Press of Atlantic City)

We Keep Telling You: Don't Leave Your Dog in the Car!

We Keep Telling You: Don't Leave Your Dog in the Car!
How many times do we have to tell you to not leave animals in cars? In Ellsworth, Maine, somebody found out the hard way. Ellsworth Police say our friend was walking the dog near Branch Lake but then put the dog into his truck after an encounter with another dog. While the man spoke to the other dog's owner, the Yorkshire terrier managed to bump the Chevrolet Silverado into gear, causing it to roll about 75 feet smack into the lake, and bounce off a rock before sinking in roughly 10 feet of water. Police say a family friend immediately swam into the lake and saved the trapped dog. A towing company was called in to remove the truck. Fortunately no humans or dogs were injured. Can't say the same for the truck. (myway.com)

Project Update: I-40 paving and SR 87 bridge deck replacement at Winslow

Project Update: I-40 paving and SR 87 bridge deck replacement at Winslow Paving on I-40 through Winslow has been completed and crews are now working on replacing the SR 87 bridge deck
The Arizona Department of Transportation has finished the paving portion of this project through Winslow. Crews are now working on replacing the State Route 87 bridge deck, which crosses Interstate 40, on the east side of town.
On Tuesday (Oct. 6) and Wednesday (Oct. 7) from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., I-40 will be closed both eastbound and westbound at the SR 87 Interchange (exit 257). Traffic will be diverted around the closure by using the on and off ramps at the interchange.
There will be narrow traffic lanes, wide load restrictions and a reduced speed limit through the work zones. Drivers are asked to use caution, watch for detour signs and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

For more information about this project, please call Rod Wigman at 928-308-8233, or emailrwigman@azdot.gov.

Bridge replacement work starts on I-40 west of Holbrook Oct. 12

Bridge replacement work starts on I-40 west of Holbrook Oct. 12 Drivers should expect narrowed lanes and reduced speed limits
The Arizona Department of Transportation will begin a project on Monday, Oct. 12 to replace the eastbound bridge at Tanner Wash on Interstate 40 (milepost 277-278), about seven miles east of Holbrook.
The $2.2 million project, which is scheduled for completion the first part of 2016, will include the construction of a new bridge, replacing the approach slabs and bridge barrier.
Work hours will be sunrise to sunset Monday through Thursday. There will be narrowed traffic lanes and the speed limit will be reduced through the work zones.   While the eastbound bridge work is being done, traffic will be diverted to the westbound side of the freeway where two-way traffic will be maintained for approximately one half mile. Eastbound and westbound Interstate 40 access will be maintained at exit 277.
Flaggers will be present to guide vehicles through the work zones when neces…

THE WHITE TEETH DIET

THE WHITE TEETH DIET It's time to load up your plate with broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. If you pay attention to what you eat -- and what you don't eat -- you can clean and whiten your teeth naturally, says UK dentist, Dr. Anthony Zybutz. There are three components to the white teeth diet: chewing, saliva production and staining, Zybutz tells London's Daily Mail: 1. Chewing
Fruits and vegetables that must be chewed act like a toothbrush while you eat, scrubbing the surface of your teeth, removing food particles and preventing plaque build-up. These foods also massage the gums, which stimulates blood flow and helps keep gums healthy. Best foods to eat: Apples, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, broccoli, pineapple, celery and hard cheeses. 2. Saliva
When the flow of saliva is increased, it helps keep teeth whiter by essentially rinsing your teeth as you eat. Best foods to eat: Citrus fruits, such as grapefruits, limes, lemons and oranges, as well as strawberries. 3. Stainin…

William Wrigley Jr. -- The man who brought us "pure chewing satisfaction"

William Wrigley Jr. -- The man who brought us "pure chewing satisfaction" -- was born way, way back in 1861. Modern chewing gum was invented when "chicle," a latex sap much like rubber, was brought to the U.S. In 1870, the first flavored gum, Black Jack, was manufactured. Wrigley was selling Spearmint and Juicy Fruit by 1893. Chiclets and gumballs came in the early 1900s -- and Walter Diemer invented Dubble Bubble bubble gum in 1928. After World War II, chemists learned how to make artificial gum bases to use instead of chicle.
A recent study shows a simple stick of gum can often fight heartburn just as well as over the counter medicines. Researchers at England's Kings College found that chewing gum half an hour after a meal can relieve symptoms of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) -- commonly known as indigestion. Chewing gum stimulates saliva, which neutralizes acid in the esophagas.According to a small study by Andrew Scholey of the University of Northum…

ON THIS DAY

ON THIS DAY On this date in 1452, the very first book was published, Johann Guttenberg's Bible. Critics were afraid to say anything about. However, it instantly went to number one on the best-seller's list... until a second book was published.It probably would have sold a lot more copies if the majority of the population knew how to read.However, none of the authors were present for the party.Needless to say, it went to #1 immediately on Amazon's top 100.Actually, for a while, it was just the Top 1.The local library was thrilled. They finally had something to lend out.
In 1846, ether was used for an operation for the very first time. After the doctor kept falling asleep during the procedure, it was decided that it should be for the patient next time. On this date in 1894, the safety pin was invented by James Hunt, who at the age of only 14 months, was sick and tired of having his diapers glued on. In 1902, a patent was given for Rayon... to the Rayola company. They're the o…

HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?

HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT? Getting a good night's sleep is hard work. That's the conclusion of a survey of 1,506 adults by the National Sleep Foundation. Some survey results:
Three quarters of the adults surveyed said they frequently have a sleep problem. Those problems include difficulty falling asleep, waking up too early and not being able to get back to sleep, snoring or waking up feeling unrefreshed.Three-fourths said their partner has a sleep problem. The most common problem was snoring.The average amount of sleep for an adult is 6.9 hours. Experts say adults should be getting a minimum of seven to nine hours of sleep a night.Six in ten adult motorists say they've been behind the wheel while drowsy in the past year. Four percent reported having had an accident or near-accident because they were too tired or actually dozed off while driving.Roughly a fourth of those surveyed who have partners said their sex life has been hurt because they've been too sleepy.

US 93 traffic switch planned for Thursday north of Wickenburg for widening project

US 93 traffic switch planned for Thursday north of Wickenburg for widening project Motorists to travel on new southbound lanes as work continues on existing northbound lanes


PHOENIX — The Arizona Department of Transportation continues to make considerable progress on an improvement project to widen and upgrade a five-mile segment of US 93 between State Route 71 and State Route 89, just north of Wickenburg.

On Thursday, Oct. 1, crews are scheduled to switch both directions of traffic to the newly constructed southbound lanes. As crews make preparations for the planned traffic switch, motorists may be stopped intermittently for up to 15 minutes at a time between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Oct. 1.

While one travel lane will remain open in both directions, motorists should continue to be prepared to allow 10 to 15 minutes extra travel time through this segment (mileposts 185-190).

Once the traffic switch is complete, ADOT will begin work to repave and restripe the existing northbound lanes.
