This Common Grilling Mistake Could Make You Very Sick—Luckily, There's An Easy Fix 

 

Eager cooks can find myriad reasons to make dinner on the grill every night of the week in peak grilling season: From chicken and steak to pizza, potatoes, bread, even dessert, there isn’t much that isn’t delicious after a spin over charcoal or the flames of a gas grill.

However, one thing no one wants to take away from their smoky piece of perfectly-grilled fish is a foodborne illness. But it is entirely possible an over-eager cook could set up their family and dinner guests for just that if they don’t do this one essential step: preheat the grill and scrub it clean of any residue before cooking.

Grills can harbor pieces of food for days, weeks, even months after the dish has been consumed. The food that remains on the grills is an attraction for birds, insects, and other animals. They can introduce any number of bacteria (and even waste) to the grill’s surface. Plus, leftover food bits are a magnet for bacteria, and they can produce unusual odors or flavors in the food you’re cooking on top of them.

Why American life expectancy is declining 

 

For the third year running, life expectancy in the U.S. has declined, per new data from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

Children born in 2017 are expected to live an average of 78.6 years, down from 78.7 the year prior. This most recent decline makes the last three years the longest period of decreasing life expectancy since the years of 1915 to 1918, USA Today reports. Considering that time period included World War I and the Spanish flu epidemic, those factors might at least partially explain the reduced life expectancy.

NYC has a penthouse problem, LA has a mansion problem, and Miami has a condo problem 

 

Miami condos may boast ocean views and luxury living, but that's no longer enough to get them off the market.

Long a city for vacation homes and foreign buyers seeking safe investments, Miami is now faced with a surplus of condos, reported Candace Taylor for The Wall Street Journal. Its high-end real-estate market has slowed in recent years, with condo sales in Miami Beach decreasing by 24% over the past four years, she said.

The condo craze began in the early 2000s, Taylor reported. The market imploded during the financial crisis, but Latin American buyers — along with buyers from Europe and America — brought it back to life post-recession.

But what were once strong South American economies are now suffering, and Latin American buyers have less buying power in the US, according to Taylor. Their disappearance isn't the only factor driving the abundance of empty condos — the threat of rising sea levels and the preference for large houses are also shaping the trend, she said.

“Climate Apartheid” Is Imminent. Only the Rich Will Survive. 

 

“Climate Apartheid”

If our global climate change catastrophe continues unchecked, vast swaths of the world will likely become harsher and far less hospitable for humanity.

When that happens, an even greater rift will appear between the global haves and have-nots, as many people will be left without the means to escape the worst effects of the climate crisis, according to a new report published Tuesday by the U.N.’s Human Rights Council that describes an impending “climate apartheid.”

While the rich hire private firefighters or move to more expensive habitable areas, the report predicts that 120 million people will be pushed into poverty by 2030 by climate change. Many more will die.

A third of women only date men because of the free food: study 

 

The results are in: she only wanted to try that hot new restaurant.

A new study published Friday in the Society for Personality and Social Psychology journal found that a quarter to a third of heterosexual women have gone on a date with a guy they weren’t interested in — just for a free meal.

“Foodie calls,” can happen when money’s tight, the grocery store is out of a favorite frozen meal, or a must-try entree is just too extravagant to justify — when the tab comes out of your own bank account.

Your Professional Decline Is Coming (Much) Sooner Than You Think 

 

It’s not true that no one needs you anymore.”

These words came from an elderly woman sitting behind me on a late-night flight from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The plane was dark and quiet. A man I assumed to be her husband murmured almost inaudibly in response, something to the effect of “I wish I was dead.”

Again, the woman: “Oh, stop saying that.”

To hear more feature stories, see our full list or get the Audm iPhone app.

I didn’t mean to eavesdrop, but couldn’t help it. I listened with morbid fascination, forming an image of the man in my head as they talked. I imagined someone who had worked hard all his life in relative obscurity, someone with unfulfilled dreams—perhaps of the degree he never attained, the career he never pursued, the company he never started.

At the end of the flight, as the lights switched on, I finally got a look at the desolate man. I was shocked. I recognized him—he was, and still is, world-famous. Then in his mid-80s, he was beloved as a hero for his courage, patriotism, and accomplishments many decades ago.

Ohio bakery awarded $11 million in libel lawsuit against Oberlin College over alleged racial profiling 

 

An Ohio jury has ordered Oberlin College to pay $11 million to a bakery which said it was libeled and wrongfully accused of racially profiling students.

The case stems from the November 2016 arrests of three black Oberlin students at Gibson's Bakery and market near the college's campus in Oberlin, Ohio.

One student, Jonathan Aladin, was accused of attempted robbery for allegedly trying to "steal wine or otherwise illegally obtain wine" from the bakery, according to a defamation lawsuit. He would eventually confess in a written statement to buying alcohol illegally.

Two other suspects, Cecelia Whettston and Endia J. Lawrence, were arrested and accused of misdemeanor assault, court documents state.

After that, Oberlin staff members tried to discredit the family-owned bakery, the lawsuit says.

Ask the Captain: Is it OK to rat out passengers for phone use during takeoff and landing? 

 

Question: Why don’t airlines stress strongly to leave overhead bins closed during emergency evacuations? I noticed some people on the recent crash in Russia that people delayed the evacuation and most likely caused deaths. I've also seen videos showing people running away from crash site with their carry-on luggage. No luggage is worth losing lives over.

– Dan O, Massachusetts

Answer: Passengers who attempt to retrieve overhead luggage during and evacuation put themselves at risk and others at risk.

The Unwritten Sex Rule My Husband and I Have: Once a Week Is Good 

 

Sex once a week — this is the unwritten and unsaid rule my husband and I have stood by pretty much since the "I've gotta have you right now" phase fizzled. And let's be honest, that fire often dwindles after those first few years of newlywed bliss and comes dangerously close to being put out altogether when you have kids. But as long as you make an effort, a flame will always be there — sometimes small, sometimes big. For my husband and I, that effort happens once a week. And after talking with many of my friends about this unwritten sex rule, it turns out we're not alone.

1 Million People A Day Contract An STI, According To World Health Organization 

 

A staggering new figure from the World Health Organization reveals that more than 1 million people contract curable sexually transmitted infections globally every single day.

The report, published Thursday, gathered data on the four STIs that make up 376 million new cases annually: chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis and syphilis. Trichomoniasis, which is a parasitic infection contracted during sexual intercourse, is the most common STI, making up 156 million cases among men and women ages 15 to 49 in 2016 (the year with the most recent available data).

Each of the infections is treatable and curable. However, a lack of education surrounding STIs ? as well as the fact that in many cases a person does not experience symptoms when they contract one of them ? is troublesome. According to WHO, a global shortage of penicillin and a drug-resistant strain of gonorrhea pose a threat as well.

Crappy parenting can damage your kid’s DNA: report 

 

Blame your parents for all your problems? Science supports that.

A new report by researchers at Lomo Linda University suggests that aloof and unsupportive parenting damages their children’s health on a genetic level, potentially leading to disease and early death in adulthood.

“The way someone is raised seems to tell a story that is intertwined with their genetics,” says lead study author Dr. Raymond Knutsen, public health professor at Lomo Linda University.

We are at the beginning of a global mental health revolution 
 

Access to mental health services has never been more critical -- no matter where you live. Mental health disorders are increasing globally, and depression is the leading cause of disability in the world. One in four of us will experience a mental illness at some point in our lives, according to the World Health Organization.

And many more are indirectly affected by disorders experienced by someone we love.

In the United States, mental disorders among children and adolescents have reached a crisis level, with the country experiencing its highest suicide rate in 50 years.

My interest in mental health started more than 50 years ago in front of a cotton mill in Atlanta. It was 1966, when my husband, Jimmy Carter, was running for governor. I stood outside the entrance of the factory early in the morning, waiting to give people brochures as they left the night shift. An older woman came out, looking weary from work. When I asked if she would be able to get some sleep, she told me she hoped so, but that she had a daughter who had a mental illness and needed care while the woman's husband was at his job.

I love my husband but I can’t stop fantasizing about having sex with a stranger: Ask Ellie 

 

Q: I’m a 50-something gay man, married to the man of my dreams, together for 10 years, married for seven. We have a great sex life. He’s adventuresome, kind, patient with me.

Yet I have a strong desire to have sex with someone else, preferably a person we don’t know. I have a wandering eye, and my husband knows and enjoys it, even pointing out attractive guys.

I’ve not told him about my secret desire. I hate cheaters. I’ve been cheated on and it’s devastating. He trusts me.

Yet I’m fantasizing about meeting a stranger and having sex. It even happens during our actual sex, which he thinks is just our natural heat.

I’m afraid that if I tell him, he’ll be hurt, think that what we have isn’t enough, and take that as his fault.

How fast you walk predicts how long you'll live 

 

Walking is one of the best ways for the average person to get and keep fit: it's free, you can do it basically anywhere, and you don't need any special training or equipment.

A study published this month in Mayo Clinic Proceedings confirms your walking speed is a simple predictor of longevity: fast walkers have a longer life expectancy than slow walkers.

From the Straight Spouse’s Perspective of a Gay Man Having an Affair 

 

My husband is having an affair with a man. We have four young children. He moved out quickly after I discovered the relationship. I am worried about him and I don’t know how to make this better for him and for us. His kids miss him. I honestly thought we had a happy and loving marriage. Do you have any advice for me? Or for him?

Thank you for sending your question, and I’ve written a lot about how the gay spouse proceeds through this process. I only occasionally hear from women or men who have been left behind. So in this response, I’m going to focus on you and them.
