How does a 16-year-old make it from San Jose to Maui? We might have the answer. 
The 15-year-old boy who survived a flight across the Pacific Ocean stowed away in an airplane's wheel well has everyone wondering just how he achieved this remarkable feat.

Love is blind, but don't be stupid about it. Thinking of someone too highly is never a good thing

If it's not obvious enough, science has a few reasons why you shouldn't put a loved on a pedestal. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/xt0p

What's healthy and what isn't seems to go back and forth a lot. See if sugar really causes cavities, or if you've been lied to for years. 
You've probably heard it all your life: Eating sweets will rot your teeth. But while a diet high in sugar certainly promotes the formation of cavities (as well as other medical problems), sugar itself isn't the real culprit behind tooth decay.
