ONE-HIT WONDER: DEAD SKUNK LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III 1973
A new study by UC San Francisco and the University of Pittsburgh reveals that insufficient sleep increases the chances of getting sick. Researchers studied the sleep habits of 164 adults over two months and found that people, who slept less than six hours a night were 4.2 times more likely to catch a cold than those, who got more than seven hours of sleep per night. People, who slept less than five hours per night were 4.5 times more likely to catch a cold.
Professor Aric Prather tells Medical Xpress: "Sleep goes beyond all the other factors that were measured. It didn't matter how old people were, their stress levels, their race, education or income. It didn't matter if they were a smoker. With all those things taken into account, statistically sleep still carried the day and was an overwhelmingly strong predictor for susceptibility to the cold virus."

Portland, Oregon resident Ted Nelson is being hailed as a hero for saving a dog's life. A 5-year-old Bichon Frise named Mordy climbed out onto his owner's balcony before falling 14 stories.
Ted tells KGW that he caught the dog. “I just looked out my window at my apartment across the street. There was a dog that had ended up climbing through the railing on its balcony, and it was perched on this little ledge. Eventually it slipped. I just looked up at it and it was looking at me and it landed right in my chest… caught it for a minute, kind of fell, it did hit the ground. It let out a yelp but it was a huge relief to hear it yelp.''
Mordy is ok.

Police are looking for a trio of teens seen in surveillance video, who robbed a VCU student of his sandwich at gun point. Surveillance video shows the three teens, in a Subway sandwich shop, not ordering anything, until one asked for a cup of water. Police said they then followed a man outside the shop on Semmes Avenue just after he got his sandwich, and stole his meal.
"Holding somebody at gun point for a sandwich,” said Christina Moore, who lives in an apartment nearby. “It's so reckless."
But stealing a man's foot-long sandwich is still a felony, one that has people who live nearby talking about safety. "I'm not going to walk alone or with headphones on, for sure," Moore said.
The boldness lay in the timing of the crime and how the suspects seemed not to care that they were caught on camera. "It’s pretty shocking because it was over a sandwich, and we live here,” said Moore. “I'm not going to come out alone at night."
People living in the neighborhood said apartment managers have warned them of petty crimes like loose change being swiped from cars, but nothing as serious as an armed robbery.

CBS claims spiritual healer Dorina Rosin is planning on having a dolphin-assisted birth in the ocean. She and her partner Maika Suneagle believe their baby will be able to speak “dolphin.” Experts say ocean births are dangerous because of sharks. Dorina has swam with dolphins during her pregnancy. She says delivering in the ocean is more relaxing than in a hospital.
Science journalist Christie Wilcox previously told Discover: “This has to be, hands down, one of the worst natural birthing ideas anyone has ever had. Dolphins have been known to toss, beat, and kill other mammals for no apparent reason. Is this an animal you want to have at your side when you’re completely vulnerable?”
