Kids hospitalized with the flu are more likely to need intensive care and a longer stay if they've been exposed to second-hand smoke at home, a small new study finds. Analyzing the records of more than 100 kids hospitalized with flu in New York state, researchers found those exposed to second-hand smoke were five times more likely to be admitted to the intensive care unit and required a 70 percent longer stay in the hospital, compared to the kids not exposed to smoke. "People are being a bit complacent and thinking that because they don't see smoking as often…that it's not a problem anymore," said Dr. Karen Wilson, of Children's Hospital Colorado, in Aurora, who led the study. "But we still need to be vigilant about protecting kids from second-hand smoke." According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, passive smoking causes ear infection, breathing problems and lung infections in children, and leads to the hospitalization of up to 15,000 children under the age of 18 months every year.

A Chicago-area woman wanted to return an overdue copy of "The Picture of Dorian Gray" to the Chicago Public Library, but first she wanted to be sure she wouldn't go to jail. That's because the book, a rare limited edition of the Oscar Wilde novel, was checked out in 1934. Harlean Hoffman Vision found it in her late mother's possessions, with a Chicago Public Library stamp. The library is conducting a rare three-week amnesty program for overdue items, and Vision figured this was her chance to return the book, said Ruth Lednicer, the library's marketing director. The books was returned Thursday. More»

A space telescope has added to its list of spectacular finds, spotting millions of supermassive black holes and blisteringly hot, "extreme" galaxies. The finds, by US space agency Nasa's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (Wise), once lay obscured behind dust. But Wise can see in wavelengths correlated with heat, seeing for the first time some of the brightest objects in the Universe. The haul will help astronomers work out how galaxies and black holes form. It is known that most large galaxies host black holes at their centres, sometimes feeding on nearby gas, dust and stars and sometimes spraying out enough energy to halt star formation altogether.

A cup of tea with a cucumber sandwich tops the list of best foods to have during hot weather, researchers say. According to the researchers, however tempting ice creams may be, they will not work to beat the heat, the Daily Mail reported. Even water should be drunk at room temperature rather than ice cold during the hottest days of the year. While the British colonial favourite of cucumber sandwiches work best during summer, the crust free, white bread versions served in posh hotels and tea rooms, do not seem to work best. Food industry experts at the American Chemical Society annual meeting said that having them on whole wheat bread with a ‘slab’ of mayonnaise and sea salt on top works best. More»

An Egyptian woman has filed for divorce from her husband after he refused to relocate from their district, which was hit by frequent power cuts. The mother of two said in her lawsuit that their home had become unsuitable to live in because it was located in a densely populated area, comprising ex-cons and unlicensed hawkers, reports Gulf News. According to the woman, when she insisted on moving to another house, her spouse insulted and beat her up in front of their children. She said her husband was financially capable of affording a new house. The court is yet to rule on the divorce request, the paper said. This summer Egypt has been plagued by unprecedented power outages, which the government has blamed on soaring consumption rates and high temperatures. More»

Roger D. Fisher, a Harvard law professor who was a co-author of the 1981 best seller “Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In” and whose expertise in resolving conflicts led to a role in drafting the Camp David accords between Egypt and Israel and in ending apartheid in South Africa, died on Saturday in Hanover, N.H. He was 90. The cause was complications of dementia, his son Elliott said. Over his career, Professor Fisher eagerly brought his optimistic can-do brand of problem solving to a broad array of conflicts across the globe, from the hostage crisis in Iran to the civil war in El Salvador. His emphasis was always on addressing the mutual interests of the disputing parties instead of what separated them. As he would tell his students, “Peace is not a piece of paper, but a way of dealing with conflict when it arises.” More»

US astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man on the Moon, has died aged 82. A statement from his family says he died from complications from heart surgery he had earlier this month. He set foot on the Moon on 20 July 1969, famously describing the event as "one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind". US President Barack Obama said Armstrong was "among the greatest of American heroes - not just of his time, but of all time". Last November he received the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest US civilian award. He was the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft. More than 500 million TV viewers around the world watched its touchdown on the lunar surface. More»

When is a book no longer a book? I wasn’t expecting to have my mind blown by the iPad app of the children’s story “Another Monster at the End of This Book.” The tale, of course, is about itself: Grover, probably the world’s most lovable furry monster (from the Sesame Street) cooks up a half-dozen schemes to prevent the reader from turning pages to get to the promised fright at the end. In this sequel to the all-time classic There’s a Monster at the End of This Book that was a runaway hit with children and adults alike, Grover is joined by Elmo, the other Seseame Street lovable muppet monster - a casting move nakedly designed to appeal to a younger audiences - who, eager to meet the monster, encourages us to subvert all of Grover’s defenses. The fun increases in leaps and bounds as Elmo urges us to ignore all of grover’s warnings and get to the end of the book to know who the monster is. The iPad version is animated and interactive. Grover keeps begging us not to turn the page in his real whiny-gravelly voice. To help Elmo get to the end, you’ve got to swipe away the paper clips, glue, and alphabet blocks that Grover puts up to block each page. At first, this is delightful; when I offered the app to my 19-month-old son Khalil, he was instantly smitten. But as I watched him play with Another Monster, I began to wonder what was really going on. More»

Results of a newly-conducted study have shown that people who tell fewer lies enjoy enhanced mental and physical functions. By performing polygraph tests on 110 people aged between 18-71 over 10 weeks, a group of psychologists from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, US, found that when the participants made an effort to tell less lies their overall health improved. According to the researchers, about half of the participants in the study were encouraged to refrain from telling major lies or fibs over the 10-week period through adopting strategies including refusing to answer questions and keeping secrets while the other half received no instructions. Once in a week, both group filled in questionnaires about their mental and physical health and their close relationships. They also took a lie detector test. The study revealed that those in the no-group lies reported fewer health complaints both mentally and physically, highlighting the strong relationship between honesty and better health. More»

A recent study finds that eating dark chocolate or cocoa powder each day can reduce blood pressure in the short term and help protect against cardiovascular disease. A review of research, issued in the Cochrane Library, revealed that people who eat dark chocolate may experience slight reduction in their blood pressure. The Cochrane Group researchers assessed 20 different studies that lasted between two to eight weeks and included 865 people eating between 30-1080 milligrams of flavanols found in 3 to 100 grams of chocolate. The researchers then found that eating flavanol-containing chocolate or cocoa powder resulted in a 2 to 3 mmHg (millimetres of mercury) reduction in blood pressure, meaning that a blood pressure of 120/80 decreased to 118/78.
