Entertainment
Nigella Lawson has revealed she has had to tell US TV stations to not airbush her "sticking out" stomach.

Ho, ho, ho — don't eat raw cookie dough: CDC

Health
The holidays are upon us and for many that means family time in the kitchen preparing delicious baked goods and maybe even licking the spoon before the cookies go into the oven. So the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put out a warning this week to, “Say No To Raw Dough!” Dr. Todd Ellerin -- who admits he doesn’t bake -- said it’s the raw flour and uncooked eggs that can make us sick.

Many U.S. pharmacies don't offer opioid overdose antidote

Many U.S. pharmacies don't offer opioid overdose antidote

Health
Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Many pharmacies don't offer the drug that can save the lives of people suffering from opioid overdoses, according to three new studies. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on Tuesday reported 25 percent of pharmacies it surveyed in Texas didn't have naloxone in stock, even as the National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that more than 115 people die each day from opioid overdoses. The drug reverses the effects of opioid overdose, but 84 percent of Texas pharmacies would give out the drug to customers without a prescription. "More naloxone in the hands of friends and family can save lives," researchers wrote in a new survey of Texas pharmacies. One reason for reluctance on behalf of some pharmacies to give out naloxone could stem fr...

50 countries vow to fight cybercrime – US and Russia don't

Technology
Fifty nations and over 150 tech companies pledged Monday to do more to fight criminal activity on the internet, including interference in elections and hate speech. But the United States, Russia and China are not among them. The group of governments and companies pledged in a document entitled the "Paris call for trust and security in cyberspace" to work together to prevent malicious activities like online censorship and the theft of trade secrets. The push is supported by EU countries, Japan and Canada as well as tech giants Facebook, Google and Microsoft, among others. French President Emmanuel Macron had pushed for the initiative, whose unveiling comes a day after dozens of world leaders gathered in Paris on Sunday for the centenary of the end of World War One. Speaking at the Interne...

Powerball jackpot surges to $750 million. If you win, don't count on remaining anonymous

Finance
It's starting to look like deja vu all over again. On the heels of the Mega Millions jackpot climbing for three months to $ 1.537 billion before someone nabbed the prize this week, Powerball's haul has surged to $ 750 million following no jackpot winners in Wednesday night's drawing. It marks the 21st straight drawing with no one picking all six winning numbers. The last time someone beat the astronomical odds against winning Powerball was Aug. 11, when the $ 245.6 million prize went to a man from Staten Island, New York. The current $ 750 million jackpot — up for grabs in Saturday night's drawing — marks the thir...
