Sharon consulted a lawyer, who explained that it was illegal for Peters to withhold the teeth without a contract. As a result, Peters returned the teeth to McDonald on Monday.
She argues that half of your happiness is genetically set, while 10% is due to life circumstances and 40% is left to one’s behavior. As you have probably figured out, that means we can help ourselves be happier by actually doing things, not just thinking about them!
Intentional acts are much more valuable than anything you can do on autopilot, especially if almost half of our happiness could be up to our own actions!

According to a new British survey, almost 45 percent of adults say they do not brush their teeth at night, and you can imagine the excuses they gave. Forty percent blamed it on being tired, while 30 percent were just plain lazy, and 28 percent say they just simply forget.
But those who do brush their teeth aren’t exactly much better. Twenty percent of people say they brush with water only, while 41 percent actually use their finger, which dentists warn against because it can introduce new bacteria into your mouth.
And if brushing is bad, forget about flossing. Only 24 percent of those polled say they floss their teeth daily.

J.Lo has a high-tech system to remember everything she wears so she doesn’t repeat her outfits, a source close to the singer tells Confidenti@l. “She had her feet up at a meeting, and someone noticed that she had a bar code on her shoe and asked her if she borrowed them,” says our insider. “Jennifer laughed and said no, that she has her own internal bar code system on all of her closets to digitally keep track of what she wore and when she wore it, so that she isn’t caught wearing the same thing twice.”
We’re told all her clothes, from her gowns down to her jeans and T-shirts, have a tag inside with a code that’s scanned into a database, which pulls up a picture and description of each item, including size, color and date it was last worn. There’s also a database of paparazzi shots of the singer wearing the items. “She has a full-time staffer in charge of just her clothing,” adds our source, who says that with the star’s extensive travels and homes in New York and Los Angeles, the system monitors where every piece of clothing is at every moment in case she needs access. “She takes her fashion very seriously,” laughs our insider. “She never wants to be caught accidentally in the same thing twice. When she chooses to wear something more than once, it’s intentional.”
We’re also told Lopez’s closet looks like “Barneys,” with some “historic” pieces she has worn placed on mannequins behind glass in her three-room closet in New York.
CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. (AP) — The Atlantic City bomb squad was dispatched to a southern New Jersey home over the weekend after a man dug up a live cannonball in his backyard.
Police say the Lower Township man was digging behind his West Bates Avenue home when he discovered the explosive Saturday.
Police say the brass-capped cannonball was approximately 5 inches in circumference and was stamped "4k, 85mm."
Officials say the bomb squad took an x-ray of the device and determined it was fully functional. The cannonball was later detonated in an unpopulated area.
Police say the discovery is not unusual for this part of the state, but residents are advised to never touch or move any found artillery shells.
Originally fired as solid projectiles, cannonballs developed over time to include fuses and explosive materials.
