College Warns Of Mom Around Campus Trying To Get Dates For Her Son

They say that you should marry someone just like your mother. Let's hope this college student doesn't. The police at Towson University in Maryland has issued a warning to the students and the faculty to watch out for a woman on campus. She's in her 50s and she usually wears a multicolored scarf.  And she's looking for a date for her son. She's literally walking up to people, showing them a picture of her son on her phone, and asking if they want to date him.

The woman is also very persistent as two different people called the campus police on her and now they're asking people to report her the next time she comes to the school. It's not clear if her son actually attends the university but they would simply like the behavior to stop. She's not being sought for any criminal charges.

How Many Followers Do You Need To Make Money On Instagram?

Everyone wants to be an Instagram influencer these days. It really seems like the perfect job – your life looks perfect, and you get to model cool products for free. What’s better than that!? But how do you even find people who would be willing to pay you to show off their products? And how much many followers do you need for it to be worth it for them? These are the questions that keep me up at night.

It’s not a clear-cut answer, but influencer experts say that having 10,000 followers could get you a decent amount of money in sponsored posts. If you have this kind of following, you could end up with a few hundred dollars for one post . People with more followers, you can imagine, are more or less rolling in the dough.

And then there’s the Kylie Jenners of the world. Her healthy following of 126-million could get her a cool million bucks just for making ONE Instagram post. Has us reeeaally thinking about the Fyre Festival stuff, right? Also has us thinking about switching career paths…

Wildlife Center Will Name Salmon for Your Ex, Feed it to a Bear

An Oregon wildlife center is offering a fresh twist on Valentine's Day naming promotions -- allowing patrons to name a salmon after an ex and have it fed to a bear.

The Wildlife Images Rehabilitation Center in Oregon said the "Catch & Release" promotion offers a unique Valentine's Day gift in exchange for a $20 donation.

The center said patrons can pay to have a salmon named after an ex-lover, and the salmon will then be served to brown bears Kodi and Yaki.

Wildlife Images said the $20 package includes a special certificate and photos of the bears eating the salmon.

"Beer before wine is fine"? No, you'll still be hungover, study says

The old saying goes, beer before wine and you'll be fine -- the next morning. But wine before beer?

Many folks have long said the order in which different types of drinks are consumed will affect one's hangover. Another common adage is "Liquor before beer, in the clear. Beer before liquor, never sicker."

But a group of scientists now have said that's not true: The order in which drinks are consumed doesn't affect a hangover.

If you drink too much, the study showed, you'll still likely be in store for a rough morning after.

A joint study by researchers from the Witten/Herdecke University in Germany and the University of Cambridge in the U.K. put the old sayings to the test, using 90 volunteers split into three groups. One drank beer and then wine, another wine and then beer, and a third drank only beer or only wine.

A week later, the volunteer groups switched what they were drinking. The volunteers were asked to rate their hangovers based on common symptoms -- fatigue, headache, nausea -- and asked to rate their levels of drunkenness throughout a day's revelry.

The researchers, led by Dr. Kai Hensel , a senior clinical fellow at the University of Cambridge, found there was no significant difference between the three groups in terms of hangovers depending on what order they drank which drink.

"The truth is that drinking too much of any alcoholic drink is likely to result in a hangover." said Jöran Köchling from Witten/Herdecke University, an author of the study, which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition .

Hensel noted one silver lining: "Unpleasant as hangovers are, we should remember that they do have one important benefit," Hensel said. "They can help us learn from our mistakes."

Newest Dating Trend: “The Vulture”

“Vulturing” is a dating trend that’s as nasty as it sounds. It’s when someone becomes interested in their partner when they fear that their relationship is about to end, or they’re single and suddenly showing interest in their crush because someone else is. When you tell your partner you’re fed up with the relationship or you stop playing to your crush’s whims, they suddenly swoop in and give you attention. WTF? They’re making big moves just at the last second to try to keep you around, but they’re not always genuine.

  • Are you guilty of being a vulture in your relationship or with your crush?
  • Is being a vulture just a sign of insecurity?
