Studies have confirmed that women talk considerably more than men do – up to tree times as much. In fact, one study showed that during an average day women spoke about 20,000 words compared to 7,000 words a day for the average man.
But why is there such a disparity between the sexes when it comes to chit chat?
Some people mistakenly believe that liposuction, a surgical procedure that removes fat from various areas of the human body can be a practical solution to weight loss.
It is not.
The case involves Hrach Shilgevorkyan, a motorist involved in a 2010 traffic stop in Maricopa County. Shilgevorkyan was arrested and forced to take a blood test. The blood chemistry revealed a chemical compound which is only produced after another compound is broken down following the ingestion of marijuana. The compound in question can remain in the system for weeks and is not an indication that the person was intoxicated or impaired.
Overturning a lower court decision, the appeals court ruled that both compounds apply to Arizona DUI laws. The result of the decision means that a driver does not have to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs to be arrested and convicted.

This is cold and flu season. Colds, like the flu, are caused by viruses. Typical symptoms of a cold usually include headache, fatigue, sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, and occasionally a mild fever. Although very unpleasant, colds tend to run their coarse and formal medical treatment is usually unnecessary.
Occasionally colds will produce a more severe swelling of the nasal passage ways causing the mucus to become trapped in the sinuses resulting in a more persistent infection; a condition known as sinusitis. Signs of a sinus infection include prolonged headache, or pain behind the eyes, usually lasting a week or more. The mucus will often turn yellow or green, and may even have an unpleasant odor – especially if the infection becomes bacterial.
