FBI refused WH request to garner Trump-Russia stories

The FBI rejected a White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russian officials.

A White House official said that the request was only made after the FBI indicated it did not believe the reporting to be accurate.

Invention of the Polio Vaccine was 62 Years Ago Today

Before 1954, polio was considered one of the most frightening public health problems in the world, but on February 23, 1954, children from Arsenal Elementary School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, received injections of a polio vaccine which was developed by Dr. Jonas Salk, a medical researcher and virologist .

There is still no cure for polio once it has been contracted, but the use of vaccines has virtually eliminated polio in the United States and the world; however, there are still some 250,000 cases addressed each year, mostly in underdeveloped countries.

7 Earth-sized planets found 40 light years away

40 light years is very close when using the universal scale. So close that if we had the technology to see life (if it exists) on one of these planets, which is orbiting the Trappist-1 star, we would be seeing them as they were only 40 years ago.

That is a far cry from other exoplanets (planets that orbit a star other then out sun) found in our galaxy some 40,000 light years away. In comparison, if a spaceship were travelling at the speed of light (386,000 miles / second), then it would reach Trappist-1 in 40 years, but if it were to go to the star system that is 40,000 light years away, get ready to pack you cots, because you will be in space for 40,000 years.

Record hot years will soon be 'new normal'

Ambiance seems to affect calorie intake when dining out. According to the Journal of Marketing Research, Restaurant diners were seated in either a bright room or dim one. The well lit diners ordered healthier items than their peers in shadows. Under low lights, diners ordered 39% more calories, though they ate 14% less. Bright light keeps you alert which leads to better choices.
