Stressed men have altered proclivities. A 2012 study published in the journal PLoS ONE found that men who are feeling stressed out prefer women with curvier figures. The study had one experimental group perform a stressful activity, while the other control group did not. Afterward, they were shown pictures of women with various body types. When the men in the control group were asked to rate the women on a scale of one to nine, they rated pictures of women with higher BMIs as the most attractive. PRESENTS... A NEWS HEADLINE...

A Texas man had his sentence more than doubled after he was caught running a $12 million invoice fraud while awaiting trial for a separate multimillion-dollar cattle scam. 31-year-old Stewart Kile Williams of Sweetwater had pleaded guilty in March to creating a trench-digging service for the oil industry and defrauding a finance company through the use of phony invoices. Williams was alleged to have run the scam starting in late 2018 until early the following year, while he was out on bond in a cattle scam case in which he was accused of stealing $2.5 million from a ranch through the sale of non-existent cattle. “They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Mr. Williams wasn’t insane, but he was brazen. While on pretrial release for one fraud in south Texas, he had the audacity to perpetrate a similar fraud in north Texas,” said Prerak Shah, the acting U.S. attorney for the northern district of Texas. Williams last week was sentenced to nearly nine years in federal prison for the invoice scam on top of the nearly six years he had already received in the cattle case, in which he pleaded guilty in 2019. He was also ordered to pay an additional $7.4 million in restitution on top of $2 million in the cattle scam.(

A 31-year-old Michigan woman is recovering after she accidentally set herself and her car on fire this week while trying to kill bed bugs. According to Fox 2 Detroit, the woman was treated at McLaren Oakland Hospital for second-degree burns caused by setting rubbing alcohol on fire inside her vehicle in hopes of killing the bed bugs. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call Tuesday for a reported car fire on Perry Street around 1:40 p.m. When they arrived, deputies found the woman and discovered she’d had a panic attack after finding bed bugs in her car. In an effort to kill them, she poured the rubbing alcohol in the car and set it on fire. The Waterford Fire Department assisted in putting out the fire. (
