Crews approaching halfway mark for rubberized asphalt resurfacing



PHOENIX – Drivers are already noticing a smoother ride on Interstate 17, and there’s more on the way as crews work to resurface more than 10 miles of the freeway between the downtown area and north Phoenix with a fresh layer of rubberized asphalt.

As the Arizona Department of Transportation’s $9.8 million I-17 Improvement Project between Dunlap and 19th avenues approaches the halfway mark, crews have already paved six miles southbound and five miles northbound.

The paving, which started in March, requires sections of the freeway in one direction to be closed on most weekends until mid-June, including northbound I-17 between McDowell and Camelback roads from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m.Monday (May 1). The Interstate 10 ramps connecting to northbound I-17 at the “Stack” interchange also will be closed.

The entire I-17 project, including final lane striping, will be completed this summer.

ADOT’s project team is working to limit the…

Overnight closure on Interstate 19 at Irvington Road scheduled this weekend

Northbound Interstate 19 will be closed overnight at Irvington Road beginning 11 p.m. Sunday, April 30, through 3 a.m. Monday, May 1, for overhead sign work. Drivers will be routed east on Irvington Road, north on Sixth Avenue and back onto I-10.

The work is part of a $40 million project to replace the existing traffic interchange at I-19 and Ajo Way with a modern single-point urban interchange. The project is expected to be complete by spring 2018.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF KISSING

(CNN) It's Kiss Your Mate Day. The kiss. It can be so many things: sweet, loving, awkward, intense, transporting, disappointing, boring, sublime, life altering. On the delicious and passionate side of the spectrum, a smooch can be a heart-healthy micro workout, a hormone releaser and a mood booster. It's also fun -- and a great way to connect with the person you care about. "Sex, as wonderful as it is, can be perfunctory," says Andrea Demirjian, author of "Kissing: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about One of Life's Sweetest Pleasures." "Kissing is intimate: You're right there in the space of your soul. It gets to the core of your heart and spirit because it's such a lovely way to express and receive love and affection. A kiss a day really can keep the doctor away."

1. Kissing helps reduce blood pressure
Making out isn't just good for your emotional heart, it gives your anatomical one a workout, too. "Kissing passionately ge…

MEDICAL MYTHS YOU PROBABLY BELIEVE

While cracking your knuckles is an unpleasant habit and may eventually injure your joints and weaken your fingers if you do it excessively, it will not cause arthritis. That's just a myth -- or something your mother told you to get you to stop doing it. There is a lot of homegrown medical advice most of us believe is true, but it's actually not. The top five medical myths you probably believe are true -- but they're not, according to the Editors of Publications International Ltd.:

1. Chocolate and fried foods cause acne.
When oil glands under the skin produce too much of a waxy oil called sebum, which the body uses to keep skin lubricated, pimples form. They're most likely caused by hormones, but stress and heredity also come into play.

2. Coffee will sober you up.
Once alcohol is in your system, no other liquid -- be it coffee, soda or water -- will sober you up. Only your liver can do that job.

3. Cold weather will give you a cold.
Viruses cause colds, not the weather. …

WEIRD WAYS TO STAND OUT AT JOB INTERVIEWS

Would you ever consider lighting a corner of your resume on fire during an interview to show your "burning desire" for the job? Someone actually did that. Call such stunts creative. (Or crazy.) In the quest to secure gainful employment, some people have done some pretty bizarre things just to get the hiring manager's attention. CareerBuilder.com and Harris Poll surveyed more than 2,000 hiring managers across all industries in companies large and small to find out the most unusual ways job candidates have attempted to get their attention so they'll stand out from the rest. Do note that in 100 percent of the cases cited below, the candidate did stand out -- but not necessarily in a good way. As CareerBuilder.com notes: File it under #CandidateFail. Here are the top 10 off-the-wall tactics job seekers used to stand out, but not always for the right reasons:

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. Staining

DOZIN' ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON

(Men's Health) A midday doze does not make you old. It makes you smart. A City University of New York study found that people who nap have sharper memories. But not just any nap will do: Use this guide to find your sweet spot: 
10 minutes -- A quick fix. napping for 10 minutes immediately wards off fatigue and boosts brain power for at least 2 and a half hours, an Australian study found. A 5 minute nap is no help. 20 minutes -- Delayed benefits. Doubling down will improve your reaction time and performance on alphanumeric task. But not right away it takes at least 35 minutes to shake off the postnap mental fog from "taking 20." 30 minutes -- A healthy boost. You will feel drowsy for about 5 minutes afterward, but then more mentally fit for 90 minutes. Still, a 10 minute nap is better; you avoid the hangover effect of a deeper sleep. 45 to 90 minutes -- No help. During a 45 minute to 90 minute nap, you drift into deep sleep without completing a full sleep cycle. "You …

THINGS NOT TO DO WHEN YOU'RE SLEEP DEPRIVED

(Huffington Post) You know getting too little sleep makes you tired and crabby and hungry and forgetful. But other than waking up on the wrong side of the proverbial bed, how bad is the occasional sleep-deprived day, really? It turns out just a little bit of extra sleep goes a long way in protecting your health, boosting your memory and keeping you safe from potentially-fatal events like heart attacks and car accidents. Just one night of sleep deprivation can also set you up for a number of everyday missteps we'd all rather avoid. Here are a few of those things you shouldn't do when you haven't had enough sleep.

Drive
You wouldn't get behind the wheel after having a few drinks, but you also shouldn't get behind the wheel without your 40 winks. In a 2012 study, researchers found that drunk and sleepy drivers are both at least twice as likely to be responsible for an accident, Reuters reported. "We know from experimental studies that just four hours of sleep loss…

WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?

What do women want? Men have been asking this question since the beginning of time. Of course, we've been telling them, but they clearly weren't listening. Relationship gurus reveal the eight common mistakes men make with women:

EAT LIKE A MAN

Cosmopolitan says women can learn interesting morsels about their man just by watching him eat.

He likes it hot
The more fiery his dinner selection, the more daring the dude. According to neurologist Alan Hirsch, author of "What Flavor Is Your Personality?", spice fans are often olfactory-challenged, so they seek stimulation in food... and in life. A man who goes for milder stuff relishes the security of a solid relationship.

He favors fruits
A guy who goes for grapes, bananas, and other soft-fleshed fruit tends to be dormant, while crunchy veggie lovers are introspective and sensitive, Dr. Hirsch's hypothesis: "People who don't behave aggressively take out aggressions on their food.

He's a meat man
Count on beef boy to be a solid but basic guy. "The psychological profile of a meat eater is a man of traditional values," says Adam Drewnowski, Ph.D., director of the nutritional-science program at the University of Washington. "Expect a guy who goes…

That Time the TV Station Had No Sense of Humor
Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher just thought they were having some harmless fun when they pranked the morning television show - "Hello Wisconsin" on WEAU. But to Gray Television, which owns the station - they duo are guilty of fraud, copyright infringement, and conspiracy to commit a wrongful act, and they're now suing the boys. Apparently Pickett and Prueher booked an appearance as "Chop & Steele," a phony strongman duo that court records show had convinced the station - via emails from a Mr. "Jerry Chubb" and a press release - to book them while they were in town on their "Give Thanks 4 Strengths" tour so they could educate viewers on how they've been "using their muscles to entertain and educate" on subjects such as bullying and unity. But their "educational" performance included karate-chopping twigs they'd found in the parking lot, lifting chocolate milk contain…

ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1789, the famous Mutiny on the Bounty took place.
How they got all those sailors on a roll of paper towels is beyond me. They should have known there would be trouble on board a ship named for a paper towel. The famous "Mutiny of the Bounty" took place when the crew of the ship ignored the captain and switched from Bounty to the cheaper Costco brand of paper towels. 
In 1914, W.H. Carrier patented the air conditioner.
Most had the same reaction: "Cool!" You would have thought that happened more during the summer. That's the device that inspired wives everywhere to say, "Does it have to be that cool in here?" After getting it to finally work, he chilled. 
On this date in 1919, the very first successful parachute jump was made.
Notice I didn't say the first parachute jump. Obviously by someone who had absolutely nothing with the previous attempts. It went so smoothly: jump out, count to ten and pull the ripcord! By then they had figure…
