A California man was arrested Sunday for Boating Under the Influence (BUI) near the Narrows in Collier County, Florida. 57-year-old Michael Doran of Los Angeles was pulled over for a slow speed zone violation by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) around 1:30 p.m. Officers said Doran smelled like alcohol and they saw multiple open alcoholic beverage containers near him. They say Doran was wobbling and slurring his speech. After conducting field sobriety tests officers determined Doran was drunk and charged him with BUI. He was placed in handcuffs and his boat was towed back to Hamilton Harbor and impounded. Doran was picked up from the boat and on his way to Naples Yacht Club when officers said he ‘urinated and defecated on himself’ in the vehicle. He was allowed to use the restroom again at the yacht club. Officers then took Doran to the Naples Jail Center. (https://bit.ly/33w91Zc)

Despite the ongoing pandemic, a new study finds a quarter of adults don’t wash their hands after coughing and 16 percent will even sneeze while covering their mouths without sanitizing afterwards. Incredibly, a third of adults admitted the increase in COVID-19 cases had no bearing on how important they thought it was to wash more regularly. In fact, while the average person spent 19 seconds soaping their hands in July following the first wave, this has now dropped to just 16 seconds. The study found that the more diligent adults are washing and sanitizing their hands eight times a day — the same as at the beginning of the pandemic.
An app that aims to translate your cat’s meow has been developed by a former Amazon Alexa engineer. MeowTalk records the sound and then attempts to identify the meaning. The cat’s owner also helps to label the translation, creating a database for the AI software to learn from. Currently, there are only 13 phrases in the app’s vocabulary including “feed me!”, “I’m angry”, and “leave me alone”. Research suggests that, unlike their human servants, cats do not share a language. Each cat’s meow is unique and tailored to its owner, with some more vocal than others. So, instead of a generic database for cat sounds, the app’s translation differs with each individual profile. The app is available free on both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
A survey once found that America’s dullest store for holiday shopping is the museum store at the National Museum of Funeral History in Houston, Texas. The Funeral History Museum’s in-house gift shop and online store sell such tempting items as a $75 book on The History of American Funeral Directing, and a $25 book titled President Gerald R. Ford Funeral Service. Browsers can also buy a baseball cap, mug or a tombstone-shaped magnet emblazoned with the museum’s slogan: “Any day above ground is a good one”.
A study says part of avoiding heart disease might involve brushing your teeth. Researchers in Korea found a clear link between good oral health and a lower chance of heart irregularities and serious heart failure. The study looked at the health records of more than 150,000 middle aged to elderly Korean residents. During the study period 3 percent of volunteers experienced a case of an irregular heart beat, while 4.9 percent experienced heart failure at least once. But even after accounting for other known factors for heart disease like age, body mass index, and smoking history, the researchers found that people who had reported better oral hygiene were less likely to develop these heart problems. Those who brushed their teeth at least three times a day, for instance, were 12 percent less likely to have heart failure, and people who had lost a substantial majority of their teeth (22 teeth or more) were 35 percent more likely to have heart failure, after accounting for other factors.

visiting family for the holidays, what are the rules and boundaries?
A woman in Australia who follows a vegan lifestyle had her mother
over to stay with her. Things were going well, until she discovered
that her mom had been frying bacon in the kitchen one morning. The
woman said she was left feeling “riled up” by her mom’s
actions. Vegans don’t eat any animal-based products, including
items such as meat and cheese. After the woman posted her ordeal on
Facebook many people agreed her mom was being disrespectful. One
commenter said: “It’s your house. Ask your mother to stop doing
that as it goes against your values.”
