‘Parenting expert’ says grandparents should ask their grandchildren for consent before hugging them 

 

Parenting expert Jane Evans says that grandparents should receive verbal consent from their grandchildren before giving physical affection, such as hugging or kissing.

Evans made the remarks during Wednesday's broadcast of British daytime show "This Morning."

What are the details?

Evans, who appeared on the show to speak with hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, said that grandparents asking consent to show physical affection can only benefit young children, encouraging them to "take control of their own bodies from a young age."

Georgia man dies in Dominican Republic, bringing US death toll to at least 10 

 

A Georgia man died in the Dominican Republic in March, adding to the list of U.S. tourists who have passed away in the Caribbean vacation destination this year.

In a statement sent Tuesday, the State Department confirmed to USA TODAY that an American citizen died there in March.

ABC News and Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV 2 report Tracy Jerome Jester Jr., 31, of Forsyth, Georgia, died on March 17 while vacationing with his sister, according to his mother, Melody Moore.

Moore told ABC she spoke to her son the night before he died and that he noted he drank a soda that tasted odd. The next day, her daughter called to say he was vomiting and complaining he couldn’t breathe.

Air Canada Passenger Wakes Up Locked in Empty, Dark Plane After Falling Asleep Mid-Flight 

 

A passenger who was getting some shut eye on a recent Air Canada flight woke up to find herself in a nightmare scenario.

Tiffani O’Brien was traveling from Quebec City to Toronto after a weekend trip, when she fell asleep mid-flight. When she woke up hours later still buckled in her seat, she says she was completely alone and the plane was “freezing cold” and “pitch black,” according to a Facebook post shared by a woman who identifies herself as O’Brien’s friend.

This is why America's travel business is worried

 

Foreign travelers to the United States bring billions of dollars into the economy each year. But that flow of people and money now appears to be at risk.

Last year set a record for tourism: 78.6 million foreign travelers came to the United States in 2018. But following that banner year, tourism is now in a slump. Travel in early 2019 is in decline, particularly from Canada, Mexico, China and South Korea. That slowdown started taking place in the second half of last year.

The travel industry is worried about how severe, and long lasting, that decline could be.

Tourism is a serious economic driver for the American economy. The United States enjoyed a $69 billion surplus on international travel last year, reducing the country's overall trade deficit by 11%, according to Tori Barnes, executive vice president of the US Travel Association, the industry trade group. On average,foreign travelers spend $4,000 each on visits to the United States. Chinese tourists spend about $7,000.

"It's a really significant economic impact," said Barnes.
Companies that rely on foreign tourism are starting to feel the decline in travel: For example, Tiffany's reported disappointing sales this week, in part because of a drop in purchases by foreign tourists at its US stores.

These robots were built to be punched, stabbed and cursed. Here's why you might want to oblige them. 

 

It’s no secret that technology can drive us batty. Between glitchy apps, social media outages and data breaches, the only thing stopping some people from smashing their personal tech is the exorbitant cost of replacing it.

Now a trio of researchers say they’ve found a way to use technology to channel our rage rather than provoke it. They’ve created robots designed not to perform tasks but to serve as our personal punching bags.

The research team, based at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, says the so-called “cathartic objects” are designed to be hit, stabbed, cursed and otherwise abused. The bots don’t complain or fight back, as seen in a video, but they do respond by flashing lights and flailing around.

Why should we take our anger out on robots? The researchers say it’s all about catharsis, the process by which people give full expression of their negative emotions as a way to curb them.

This Plastic Surgery Procedure That Promises to Give You Six-Pack Abs Is Ridiculous 

 

Forget clean eating and slaving away at the gym: The latest liposuction procedure promises to give you flawless six-pack abs without hard work or willpower. Sound too good to be true? Yeah, it pretty much is.

The procedure, called "abdominal etching," involves suctioning fat from specific parts of the abdomen, which then reveals a person's natural abdominal lines, according to an article published this month in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Patients can choose a more defined, chiseled look, or can opt for a natural, smooth appearance. But as you’d imagine, bypassing the gym for this surgical shortcut has its repercussions.

Instagram Influencer Mom Leaves Kids and Husband in Coach While She Flies First Class 

 

This Instagram influencer mom is not afraid to leave her family in the back of the plane while she flies first class.

Naomi Isted, a fashion blogger and TV presenter from Essex, U.K., who has 94,400 followers on Instagram, told INSIDER that she travels every six weeks on average for work, and if she’s booked in an economy seat, she’ll always “try to upgrade if there’s scope to do so.”

However, if her children are traveling with her, she will upgrade alone because she believes that, at ages 3 and 9 years old, they’re too young too appreciate the amenities of first class.

“I never personally experienced business or first until I was presenting a wine TV show in my 20s,” Isted, 40, told INSIDER, adding that a person shouldn’t fly first class until they are old enough to “appreciate and understand the value of money and hard work.”

Ghosts? Scents?: Scotland Stumped Why Numerous Canines Have Jumped from 'Dog Suicide Bridge' 

 

It’s a mystery that has plagued the superstitious town of Dumbarton, Scotland, since the 1950s: why do dogs jump from Overtoun Bridge?

According to The New York Times, numerous dogs — reportedly up to 600 canines — have inexplicable thrown themselves from Overtoun, which has earned the name “Dog Suicide Bridge,” and dozens have died from the subsequent fall to the rocks below.

Numerous explanations have been offered over the decades for why the bridge has seemingly compelled dogs to jump down into the gorge it covers.

“People in Dumbarton are very superstitious,” Alastair Dutton, a Dumbarton resident told The New York Times. “We grew up playing in the Overtoun grounds, and we believe in ghosts here because we’ve all seen or felt spirits up here.”

Pet owners are at risk for countless animal-related diseases. But you probably wouldn’t guess that owning a fish could be detrimental to your health. However, a recent article published in BMJ Case Reportsthis link opens in a new tab tells the story of a 73-year-old man who contracted a horrifying bacterial infection after cleaning his fish tank.

After breaking out in chickenpox-like rashes on his arms and torso, the unnamed man was sent to the University of Iowa’s infectious disease unit. The doctors who treated him first thought that he might have developed an infection from a bacterium called Nocardia, which can cause chest pain, coughing, and breathing difficulties.

'These diets are bulls***': Viewers criticise How to Lose Weight Well for promoting 'fad' slimming plans - including a liquid cleanse and one that only allows you a SINGLE meal a day 

 

Channel 4's How to Lose weight Well has sparked anger from viewers for promoting 'fad diets'.

In the third episode, which aired on Monday night, Dr Xand van Tulleken and Dr Helen Lawal road tested the latest hyped-up diets including a 'visualisation' diet and a one-meal-a-day plan, on six volunteers.

Each slimmer tried a different plan, ranging from the 12 day 'crashers' and six-week 'shapeshifters', to the four-month 'life-changers'.

And while many of the participants saw dramatic results, viewers took to social media to slam the 'fad' diets as dangerous and not sustainable long-term.

This town in Greece is draped in thousands of spider webs 

 

It sounds like a something out of a horror movie: A town covered in thousands of webs, each crawling with hordes of spiders.

But for residents of a town in Greece, it's a spooky reality.
In recent days, the webs have draped plants, trees and boats along the lagoon in Aitoliko, a town of canals that's otherwise known as Greece's "Little Venice."
Giannis Giannakopoulos noticed the "veil of webs" earlier this week and captured the spider creations with his camera.

Passengers Asked to Pee in Trash Bags and Bottles on This Flight from Hell 

 

Last Friday, a woman on an American Airlines flight from Phoenix to Hawaii got up to go to the bathroom and was faced with a dilemma most people only deal with on poorly planned road trips or out on the deep playa at Burning Man. When she made it to the front of the plane, a flight attendant calmly told her that if she wanted to pee, she'd have to do so in a trash bag.
