These are the most hated states in America, and #1 is not a surprise 

 

How much do you love your home state? How much do you hate other states? For most of us, it’s something we probably don’t think about that often, but the folks at BestLife? Well, they’re on top of it, and they’ve crunched the numbers to come up with a ranking of the 50 U.S. states based on how much they are hated.

The “Hatred Index” that BestLife came up with is based on a number of factors, including surveys where residents expressed how much (or little) pride they had in their state, how many people are moving into or out of the state, and a poll where people picked which state they hate the most, whether it was their own home state or a different one.

Let’s start with the positive side, because it’s been a rough year and we could all use a bit more positivity these days. Here are the least hated states, according to the data:

Mouthwash could 'inactivate' human coronaviruses that cause infections like the common cold 

 

Mouthwashes may help lower the transmission and spread of the coronavirus, according to a new study.

In the study, published in the Journal of Medical Virology, researchers investigated over-the-counter mouthwashes and nasal rinses commonly found in drug stores and supermarkets, since both types of products “directly impact the major sites of reception and transmission of human coronaviruses (HCoV)” — namely, the mouth and nose — and “may provide an additional level of protection against the virus.”

To find out whether mouthwashes and nasal rinses would be effective against the coronavirus, the researchers tested a common human coronavirus known as 229e — one of several strains that typically only cause mild infections like the common cold, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — not SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus associated with COVID-19.

Animals Keep Evolving Into Crabs, Which Is Somewhat Disturbing 

 

We knew the long quarantine was making us all crabby, but this is extreme: People now feel fully betrayed by the long history of crabification (technically, “carcinization”) of different species over time. That means groups of crustaceans have evolved into crabs in five completely different contexts, giving rise to a meme that the long arc of history truly bends toward the crab.

So how does carcinization happen? Well, that part is pretty simple. Animals that live in similar habitats face obstacles that can shuttle them all toward the same evolutionary advantages. Britannica cites the marsupials as a key example, where despite having one critical difference from their “placental” counterparts in other parts of the world, the marsupials often correspond very closely to these other animals.

Animals can evolve separately but end up evolving toward other species, too, or even spontaneously evolve the same characteristics in totally separate groups. Birds and bats can both fly using mechanical wings. Birds and mammals are both warmblooded, but both evolved from groups that were not.

Americans Are Dying In The Pandemic At Rates Far Higher Than In Other Countries 

 

During this pandemic, people in the United States are dying at rates unparalleled elsewhere in the world.

A new report in the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that in the past five months, per capita deaths in the U.S., both from COVID-19 and other causes, have been far greater than in 18 other high-income countries.

"It's shocking. It's horrible," says Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a professor of health policy and medical ethics at the University of Pennsylvania and one of the authors of the study.

"The United States really has done remarkably badly compared to other countries," he says. "I mean, remarkably badly."

Getting enough sleep isn’t considered ‘manly’, study finds, because that’s how literally exhausting toxic masculinity is 

 

According to research published in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research, a combination of six studies have found that “sleeping less is related to increased perceptions of masculinity, and increased masculinity is related to decreased perceived sleep amounts”.

As well as this, “based on how much they sleep, men face social judgements favouring men who sleep less”.

Doctor says soon trans men will be able to receive penis transplant surgery 

 

The doctor that has pioneered penis transplant surgery believes that soon it will become possible to operate a successful transplant.

“This would be a quantum leap if you were able to transplant a real penile structure. It’s certainly pushing the boundaries,” plastic surgeon Curtis Cetrulo, M.D. told MedPage Today.

“We’re ready to do it, and we could do it pretty soon if we get it approved,” the Boston doctor claimed.

Cetrulo, who works at Massachusetts General Hospital, was the first to complete a successful penis surgery in 2016. Now he has to convince the medical community and hospital administration that it can be done.

Study Shows People Prefer Robot Over Their Boss: 6 Ways To Be A Leader People Prefer 

 

These are stressful times—among the most stressful in history—and people need help. Often, they turn to their employers and specifically their leaders. But they don’t always get what they need. A new global study reports people actually prefer robots to humans for help with mental health issues. So what’s going on, and how can leaders be more empathetic, supportive and preferable to robots?

It’s important to know the issues plaguing employees are significant. In a just-released global study involving more than 12,000 people across 11 countries by Oracle and Workplace Intelligence, 78% of people reported their mental health had been negatively affected during the pandemic. In addition, people said stress, anxiety and depression were reducing their productivity (42%) and increasing poor decision making (40%).

And interestingly, 68% say when they have stress or anxiety at work, if given a choice between a robot or their boss, they would rather talk to a robot than their own manager. While the results may not indicate our future managers will all be robots, they do illustrate important ways leaders can improve and support their employees.

Children from poor neighborhoods show abnormal activation of motivational neurocircuits 

 

A study published in Psychological Science revealed a possible neurological explanation for why children from disadvantaged backgrounds are at risk for psychiatric problems. Children from disadvantaged neighborhoods showed blunted dorsal striatal activation — an area of the brain related to reward-motivation — during a task involving reward anticipation.

As study authors Teagan Mullins and associates say, the scientific literature points to a link between socioeconomic disadvantage and problematic mental health, yet few studies have directly looked at how neighborhood deprivation relates to brain function.

“Given the established link between socioeconomic disadvantage and psychopathology, it is critical to better understand the neurodevelopmental mechanisms driving this association,” Mullins and team say.

'Long Covid': Why are some people not recovering? 

 

There is no medical definition or list of symptoms shared by all patients - two people with long Covid can have very different experiences.

However, the most common feature is crippling fatigue.

Others symptoms include: breathlessness, a cough that won't go away, joint pain, muscle aches, hearing and eyesight problems, headaches, loss of smell and taste as well as damage to the heart, lungs, kidneys and gut.

Mental health problems have been reported including depression, anxiety and struggling to think clearly.

It can utterly destroy people's quality of life. "My fatigue was like nothing I've experienced before," said one sufferer Jade Gray-Christie,

If Your Partner Is Doing This, They're About to Break Up With You 

 

Research has shown that we tend to follow a script at the beginning of a courtship: we ask many of the same questions to get to know a potential partner in those early days of dating. But now, a new study reveals that breakups function in much the same way, by following certain steps to help us through what can be an emotionally messy process.

1

A partner loses interest in his or her significant other. (He watches more football.)

5

The partners spend less time together. ("I wonder how his emergency business trip to the Bahamas went?")

8

The partners communicate their feelings with each other. ("I hate you, you old shrew.")

If you sleep less than 8 hours a night, you’ll likely gain weight 

 

Nothing replaces a good night’s sleep. As noted by Time Magazine, “It’s nature’s panacea, more powerful than any drug in its ability to restore and rejuvenate the human brain and body.”

Anything less than the recommended seven to nine hours has been proven to lead to emotional problems like anxiety and depression, puts you at heightened risk for certain diseases, and may even impact your career according to Harvard.
A lack of sleep also makes any preexisting physical or psychological issues you suffer from worse.

Keto Diet Could Negatively Affect Your Heart, New Study Finds 

 

Following a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates has been shown to help people lose weight. The keto diet also helps people exercise more, control blood sugar, manage chronic diseases, and more. But, just like any diet plan, there are some things to consider before you try it out. This goes for if you have tried it, too. (If you are seeing some warning signs like nausea, headaches, diarrhea, and others, it may be time to stop.) Overall, one thing to think about is your health long-term, and one study just revealed that following a keto diet could hurt your heart.

Your Cat Is Making Your Kids Stupid, Says Science 

 

For years, scientific studies have warned pregnant women about the possible effects of toxoplasmosis (a disease found in kitty litter) on their unborn child.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that toxoplasmosis can lead to serious illnesses such as blindness, hearing loss, mental disabilities, and psychosis.

Most children do not show symptoms of toxoplasmosis. If they show any symptoms, they usually include swollen lymph glands, fatigue, and muscle aches.

In teens, it can cause chorioretinitis, which is a rare symptom that consists of blurred vision and dark spots floating in front of your child's eyes.

Majority of Pet Owners Admit to Canceling Plans to Hang with Dog Instead, Survey Finds 

 

Earlier this month, Wisdom Health Genetics, a leading pet genetics company and maker of Wisdom Panel dog DNA tests, released the results of its 2020 Pet Census survey, painting an up-to-date picture of human-pet connections.

Over 13,000 pet owners participated in the survey, accounting for about 25,000 dogs and 6,000 cats.

One notable finding in the census is that the majority of pup parents — 72 percent, to be exact — admitted to canceling social plans simply to spend time with their four-legged pal. For cat owners, that total was 32 percent.

Proving animals are just as much part of the family as any human, 64 percent of pet owners said they view their dog or cat as a child or family member.
