The open line apparently went unnoticed by the 18-to-20-year-old partiers even as the cops arrived to pull the plug around 3:30 Monday morning; emergency dispatchers were also able to eavesdrop as a responding officer cited the suspects.
Researchers at Queen Silvia Children's Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, believe that families are better off washing dishes the old fashioned-way, that is, in the sink, because it fits into what’s termed the “hygiene hypothesis.”
Pure and simple, the scientists, led by Dr. Bill Hesselmar, believe that the more people are exposed to different microbes, the greater the likelihood they’ll develop resistances to allergic conditions that include asthma and eczema.
Hesselmar and his team examined the health records of 1,000 kids pertaining to seasonal allergies, taking into consideration various extraneous factors that can cause these conditions, and discovered that children whose families washed dishes by hand had a far lower rate of asthma, eczema and seasonal allergies than in homes where dishwashers were used.
Although the researchers didn’t go as far to say that there was a direct cause-and-effect relationship between reduced allergic conditions and hand-washing dishes, the results seem to verify other studies that support more natural exposure to microbes to build up the immune system.

Love, lust: it's easy to confuse the two, especially in the early stages of a relationship. Both emotions make you feel a kind of bliss that you’ve never experienced before - which is wonderful and joyous and something to celebrate - but make sure you know the difference between the two. Need a little help? Here's a few clues:
1. When you’re in lust, you dress to the NINES. Maybe even the TENS. Obviously, there’s no harm in trying to look good for your significant other, especially when you're first courting each other. But we all know dressing (and looking) like you’re going to Fashion Week each time you step out for a date takes a sh*t-ton of effort, not to mention money!
When you’re in love, you might forget to wear pants. Are you wearing a shirt? Check. Shoes? Check. Pants? Oops! On those exciting Friday nights where you end up pacing the aisles of Costco to stock up on frozen pizzas and Lucky Charms cereal, comfort = love.
2. When you’re in lust, you look past their foolishness. Things are so hot & heavy, it's easy to look past minor "annoyances" (that laugh, that money problem, that MOTHER) that may turn into larger issues down the road.
When you’re in love, you point out their mistakes. You love them, which is why you want them to be a better person. And if they love you, they'll accept the (constructive) criticism and try to be a better person not just for you but for themselves, too.
3. When you’re in lust, you say what they want to hear. You constantly aim to please. When they ask you a question, you're more apt to reply with a "safe" answer, even though it might not fully express how you feel. (You figure you'll get to that later, right?)
When you’re in love, you keep it real. You don’t agree with everything they’re saying and you clearly state that. Having different views and opinions from your significant other doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not a good match; it just means that SHOCKER: You're different people. And that's okay. Healthy debate is good and normal and helpful at seeing things from another perspective.
4. When you’re in lust, the person you're with is a Greek God/Goddess. Or rather, try this analogy: a perfectly-shaped cookie with no dents or chipped corners. But hate to break-it-to-you: even perfect-looking cookies have burnt sides (even if they're not visible at first).
When you’re in love, they're more like a Greek God/Goddess statue missing it's arm. Perfectly imperfect, just like you! Pretending to be anything other than that is exhausting and oh: A LIE.
5. When you're in lust, you don't really know them. Sure, you know their favorite color is blue and their favorite food is macaroni and cheese. But that's surface level-stuff. You haven't dug down deep - and girl, that tunnel is LONG.
When you're in love, you know small insignificant details. Their favorite color is blue because when they were little, it was their mother's favorite color to dress them up in. Their favorite food is mac & cheese because it's the comfort food their Grandma always made them when they went to visit. These small, seemingly insignificant details are intimate parts of their past and who they is. And you know all these little, beautiful factoids because you took the time to really get to know them - and better even, you still want to know more.
6. When you’re in lust, you don’t feel comfortable talking to them about your problems. Talking about your problem can help ease stress and tension. But you prefer to talk about them with someone you trust. And let's face it, you're just not at that ride-or-die stage yet.
When you’re in love, you’ll talk to them about, well, basically everything. You know you love someone when you can trust them with the most minor (and major!) issues you're having, not matter how weird/trivial/embarrassing they are. You know that they'll listen without judgement. That's love.
7. When you're in lust, silence is awkward. Which is either filled with rambling or make-out sessions. No objection to make-out sessions, of course, but the fact that you both find the silence awkward is a sign of discomfort.
When you're in love, silence is welcomed. When you run out of conversation topics, you don't feel like you need to fill the silence with something else. You just let the silence sit comfortably. The void is welcome.
8. When you're in lust, the future is unknown. Yes, you're enjoying every moment you have with them right now. You love their attention, the dates, and the feeling of pure bliss. But when you look at the long run, you have absolutely no idea what the next few months (or years!) will hold. It's a little scary.
When you're in love, you welcome thoughts of the future. Whether you marry or not is up to you both, but can you see yourself sitting side-by-side on matching rickety rocking chairs? Does the idea of that give you something to look forward to? Do you picture bad vacations, fights over trivial things, and (gasp!) babies and can't imagine anyone else taking this journey with you? Then, you're totally and utterly in love.

Chef Adam Holcroft is opening London's first bug restaurant. The Grub Kitchen will serve dishes that feature crickets, worms, worm fudge ice cream and bug burgers.
Adam tells the Daily Mail: ''We're treating them as a normal food item, incorporating insect protein as an ingredient but using normal flavors we're familiar with and everyday food items we recognize. We want to pioneer the movement to normalise the eating of bugs on a day-to-day basis. We've found that we can ground crickets up to make flour, which can be used in baking. We've also created cricket grapes served with bamboo worm fudge ice cream. We're serving both bug burgers and lamb kebabs.'

Who knew being ecologically friendly could be so delicious? KFC has created a 100-percent edible coffee cup to celebrate the launch of Seattle's Best Coffee being served at their locales.
The cup is made of biscuits, but a "unique" kind. According to DailyMail, he cups are a sweet biscuit, wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of heat-resitant white chocolate. As if that weren't enough, the "Scoff-ee Cups" have been infused with scents. Some of the smells include coconut sun cream, freshly cut grass and wild flowers. The point is to not only have great tasting coffee, but to "evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays."
The cups are under development and not for sale just yet.
What's easier than taking candy from a baby? Stealing money and lunches from preschoolers, especially if you're a school bus aide. 33-year-old Rosa Rios stole money and bagged lunches from the three-to-five-year-olds she supervised on a bus in New Jersey. The little tikes didn't need to say anything, a driver noticed $400 was missing and reported it. That's when police reviewed security cameras on board for the past two months and found Rios rummaging through kids' bags. She was fired and charged with robbery and theft. Source: HuffingtonPost

Police are still searching for the suspect.
Honesty isn't the best policy if you're trying to avoid getting into trouble with the cops. 18-year-old Michael Cramer of Sarasota, Florida didn't think about that after he was caught by police counting money with a bag of marijuana next to him. What's worse? Cramer got out of the car and said to the cop who knocked on his window "I'm in so much trouble. ... There's a lot more in the trunk." Aside from the $4,300 in cash and the bag containing 28 grams of cannabis that were in plain view, cops got a warrant and found 748 Xanax tablets, more than 6 pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and edible products containing THC. The teenager was arrested on various drug charges. Source: MySuncoast
