With the summer months just ahead, it's time to start taking early precautions to ward off harmful ticks carrying Lyme disease. Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium carried and transmitted by deer ticks, which are so tiny that people often don't even see them, so they don't know they've been bitten. The bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, is closely related to the one that causes syphilis — both are spirochetes, so named because of their corkscrew appearance. … [Read more...] about How do I know if I have Lyme disease?

Home Daily News Chemerinsky: Supreme Court's recent actions… U.S. SUPREME COURT By Erwin Chemerinsky Posted February 7, 2019, 6:00 am CST Erwin Chemerinsky. Photo by Jim Block. On Jan. 22, the U.S. Supreme Court took three actions that did not involve deciding a case, yet nonetheless provided a likely harbinger of the future. The actions reflect the court’s new composition and surely please conservatives but are very troubling to liberals. TRANSGENDER MILITARY BAN One action by the court, in a 5-4 ruling split along ideological lines, was to allow President Donald Trump’s ban on military service by transgender people to go into effect. Trump overturned an Obama administration policy to permit such military service. Three federal district courts—in Washington state, California and the District of Columbia—issued preliminary injunctions against the Trump ban in Trump v. Karoski, Trump v. Stockman and Trump v. Jane Doe 2, respectively. The Trump … [Read more...] about Chemerinsky: Supreme Court’s recent actions are telltale signs of its future direction
Forget lipstick on the collar – if your partner switches off their phone at night, keeps their laptop passcode a secret and suddenly “quits” social media for no reason – they may well be having an affair, according to a new poll. Researchers polled the nation to discover the modern telltale signs that your other half might be hiding a secret and, according to the data, it’s the small things to watch out for. Applying fake tan regularly, wearing a new perfume or aftershave and regular nights out with “new” friends or colleagues from work emerged as key indicators that your loved one might be straying. Unexplained bank transactions, archiving text messages and your partner updating their style also made the cheat list. And according to the poll, someone who is having an affair is likely to want MORE sex with their partner, while a further seven percent of those polled said they realised their other half was playing away when they started eating … [Read more...] about Lipstick on the collar is out, now signs your partner is cheating include them quitting social media
As a marine biologist and conservationist, I can’t say that I often read environmental news stories that are good. I was therefore pretty thrilled to find those telltale signs of the presence of a shark — bite marks — on a deceased whale discovered right in New York Harbor in July 2016. I was hosting “Sharks and the City: New York” for the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week and had spent quite a few days floating around with a dead whale, just a short boat ride from the Statue of Liberty, hoping to spot a shark. For the first two days, there were no real visible indications that a shark was nearby; however, on the third day there were two large bite marks adjacent to the whale’s pectoral fin leaving no doubt that a large shark visited this deceased whale for a snack, and the idea of sharks in New York City made me very happy. Sure, it was sad that I had a dead whale on my hands, but just knowing that a whale had been alive at some point in or … [Read more...] about Sharks in New York Harbor: A sign of improving waterways.
