A Florida woman screamed the names of celebrities while she was arrested after a deputy caught her driving 90-miles-per-hour in a 35-miles-per-hour. According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, 38-year-old Reena Patel Sanders was driving a Lexus SUV when a deputy saw her speeding down US-1 after midnight on Monday, Aug. 17th. The deputy turned his lights and siren on, but Sanders didn’t stop. She almost crashed after turning left and fishtailing. Eventually, the deputy boxed Sander’s car in and held her at gunpoint. Another deputy got to the scene and tried to help the first deputy in removing Sanders from the car. She resisted arrest and kept pulling away, screaming “names of famous actors.” A “small amount” of marijuana-laced candies were found in Sanders’ SUV during a search. She was taken to jail and charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, DUI, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. (

No matter how hard you try, sometimes you just can’t fall asleep when you want to. But this scientifically supported method might be one of the simplest. Body temperature plays a big part in falling asleep. Having a high body temperature can make you feel more alert. When it’s bed time, your body tries to cool down before you go to sleep. One trick: sticking your foot (or feet) out of your covers to help your body release some heat. The bottoms of your feet are hairless, and they have special vascular structures to help regulate heat loss.

A study shows a moderate walk several times a week besides boosting fitness can also enhance brain functions and increase performance on cognitive tasks in older adults, reveals a novel study.

A man in England called police when he noticed a ladder had been tilted up against his window at 11:30PM. As he was on the phone with emergency dispatchers, he peeked out his window and saw two men getting ready to climb up to his window. But they had stopped to talk first. So the man opened his window and quickly pulled the ladder in, giving them nothing to climb. Police are looking for the men.

To the delight of grownups everywhere, a study has proven what we suspected all along: drinking alcohol can help us creatively solve problems. To test this, the authors gave the participants some bagels and a couple of vodka-and-cranberries, and then had them solve puzzles. The results: Study participants were better at solving the puzzles after the cocktails. So next time you feel stuck on a problem, go ahead — have a cocktail.

A Pittsburgh Public Schools' board member forgot to turn off her camera before getting in the shower during a live virtual meeting Wednesday. Veronica Edwards was seen undressing and getting into the shower during the district’s live-streamed public agenda meeting. Edwards is a Pittsburgh Public Schools graduate and worked thirty-seven years at the district before retiring. In a written statement, Edwards said she regretted the incident, but remains “committed, resolved and focused on her responsibilities to educate all children.” Her statement goes on to explain that during that due to the challenging time of virtual meetings, she had experienced a larger demand on her time, which lead to attempts of multitasking during some of the meetings. It is unclear how many people viewed the live incident, but the recording of the meeting has been edited to remove the showering incident. (

King said she "wanted to see where he was going.” King is facing one charge of receiving stolen property. (
