Nighttime Alcohol

It’s not just you: Ice-cold beer really does taste better in the evening than it does in the morning. That’s because the brain’s “rewards” system is connected to the body clock, and cravings for pleasurable things are often stronger in the evening. New research may lead to a way to break that connection: A drug that influences the immune system has been shown to disrupt evening desires for alcohol in mice, and while more testing is needed, the results suggest the drug could help to control human urges to drink during the time when temptation is strongest.

The ‘internet of things’ is sending us back to the Middle Ages

Internet-enabled devices are so common, and so vulnerable, that hackers recently broke into a casino through its fish tank.

Cop who bullied Utah nurse has history of 'unwanted physical contact' with female officer

The cop who arrested Utah nurse Alex Wubbels after she refused to follow his orders and draw a blood sample from an unconscious man has also sexually harassed another police department employee, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
Salt Lake City Police Detective Jeff Payne, who is currently being investigated by the FBI for his arrest of Alex Wubbels on July 26, made “unwanted physical contact” with a female officer multiple times, according to the police chief in a May 2013 letter obtained by the Salt Lake Tribune.
In addition, Payne also sent a “disparaging email” that was “profane in its content” to his female colleague — using official department accounts.
“Your harassing behavior was severe and persistent and created a hostile, intimidating work environment for this employee, significantly interfering with her ability to work,” the chief wrote.
Despite the incidents, Payne only received written reprimand that warned any additional harassment could result in his dismissal.

A deadly herpes virus is threatening oysters around the world

Oysters, a delicacy eaten on most coastlines of the world, are a multi-billion-dollar industry. They also are intriguing to study from a health perspective. Oysters feed by filtering tiny plankton from the surrounding water, processing up to 50 gallons per oyster daily. In doing so, they improve water quality and make their ecosystems healthier. But the water that they grow can be filled with disease-causing microorganisms that can affect both oysters and humans.
Today a deadly herpes virus, Ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1), is threatening Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas), the world’s most popular and valuable oyster species. It is almost certain to spread more widely in our globally connected world.
