Vaping Can Increase Heart Disease Risk, Study Says
In case you missed it, a new study shows that smoking e-cigarettes – or vaping – might raise the risk of heart disease. Researchers at UCLA studied people who habitually used e-cigarettes and compared them to people who neither vaped nor smoked.
The scientists found the people who vaped showed significantly higher risk of heart disease. The average age of people in the study was 27. Many people are vaping in the hope of avoiding the health risks of tobacco cigarettes, but the study indicates vaping might not be much safer than using tobacco when it comes to heart risks.
The study is published online in "JAMA Cardiology" - to read it, CLICK HERE.

Things to Start Doing In Your 20s, Not 30s
It's said that 30 is the new 20 and that should bring comfort to a lot of people. Why? No, it's not that you should put off actually getting your stuff together until you're 30. It means you have more time to actually do things right earlier on. Here are a few examples of what one person started doing in their 30s that they wish they had started doing in their 20s:
- Working out when you feel like it - Exercise shouldn't feel like punishment.
- Being honest about sex - If it's not good with someone, tell them.
- Leaving people alone - No more "you should" and "you ought to" because you really can't change people anyway.
- Dating people who actually want to date you - This is a total no brainer, but you'd be surprised at how many creeps you let stick around in your 20s.
- Going to the dentist as much as your insurance will allow - Just do it. It's usually twice a year and it's going to save your behind in the long run.
Remember Zima? Well It’s Coming Back!
According to a Miller Coors spokesperson they are bringing back everyone’s favorite 90’s alcoholic beverage ZIMA! Okay not everyone’s favorite, mostly women. I don’t know any guys who went up to the bar and ordered a Zima.
- Was Zima your favorite alcoholic beverage in the 90’s? Were you upset when it was discontinued?
Study Finds Men Actually Fall In Love Faster Than Women
If a guy you’ve been seeing said “I love you” first, you may have thought it was just an attempt to get you naked sooner. But according to one study, he was probably being sincere. Research shows that men actually fall faster than women - despite everything we’ve come to believe about females being the ones who are head over heels first.
The study surveyed college students and to start with, both genders thought women would fall in love before men. Thanks to society for making us all believe that! But as it turns out, it was the men who felt the feelings first and said those three little words before women did.
So why are men falling faster than we are? "I think women unconsciously postpone love compared to men," explains study author Marissa Harrison. “Women have a lot more to lose reproductively by committing to the wrong man. They’re born with a finite number of eggs, yet men produce millions of sperm on a daily basis.”
But on the flip side, it could be that men are just predisposed to want to procreate as much as they can. Psychologist Ingrid Collins says that in her experience, men are “far more inclined to get fired up about a mate, but also more likely to look around more.” So if you feel like saying “I love you” first, you do you. And if you feel like waiting, just know that science says he’s probably feeling it too, even if he won’t say it just yet.
Color Changing Hair Dye Is Here
Hair chameleons, rejoice! There is finally hair color that changes while it's on your head, no second dye job necessary. Data visualization scientist Lauren Bowker has invented a product that changes to adapt to the temperature at any given time.
“When heat hits the pigment, or if the cool hits the pigment, it changes the bonds of the chemistry to give you a different color, so it’s like a chemical reaction,” Bowker tells “Dazed.” "So what we did was look at data patterns of weathers and the environment in different countries and tailor the color changes to correlate with those."
The product is named "fire" and will make its debut on a runway at London Fashion week, but you can't buy it from any store just yet! For now, it's back to hitting the salon or a do it yourself makeover every six months.
The company without a boss
Do companies need a strong leader to make it in today’s highly competitive environment? Many would say “yes, definitely,” but the employees of one Swedish software consultancy company would tell them otherwise. They don’t have a CEO. Nobody tells anyone what to do, instead all the 40 employees have meetings and decide together. Crisp, the software consultancy firm that has become world famous for not having a boss, has in fact gone through a number of organizational structures, including the classic formula of having a single person running things. Hoping to get its employees more involved, it moved on to changing its chief executive officer annually, but ultimately, the 40-strong staff decided there was actually no need for a single leader, so they scrapped the position altogether.
