Women regret casual sex less if they take the initiative

Women regret casual sex less if they take the initiative

Health
Young women regret casual sex less if they take the initiative and the sex was good, according to a new study. Previous research has found that in general women regret one-night stands more than men. But researchers interviewed 547 Norwegian and 216 American university students, all of them heterosexual.The answers suggested that the "clearest gender-differentiating factor" for regret after casual sex is who made the first move.They also found that women feel less regret if the "partner was skilled and they felt sexually satisfied".All the participants in the the study undertaken by researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Texas were aged under 30 years. Previous research has found that men in general regret casual sex much less than wo...
Premier League raises less from TV rights auction

Premier League raises less from TV rights auction

Business
The Premier League has seen a decline in the money raised from the sale of rights to broadcast matches in the UK.In total BT and Sky bid £4.4bn to screen the lion's share of 200 games for each season between 2019-2022.That amount falls short of the £5.1bn the Premier League netted in 2015.Two packages to show 20 midweek matches are still to be sold, but experts say it is unlikely they will raise enough to top the previous rights deal."I don't think that those two packages by themselves are going to bridge the gap between what the domestic rights were sold for last time and what they're going for this time," said Dan Jones, head of the sports business group at the accountancy firm Deloitte.In 2012, BT and Sky paid £3bn for the rights to show matches between 2013 and 2015, up from £1.77bn in

How to Feel Less Bloated After a Huge Thanksgiving Meal

Health
Thanksgiving dinner, your house: After downing a couple of helpings of turkey and stuffing, your stomach gives a firm nuh-uh to that slice of pumpkin pie. A voice in your head has another idea, replying, "but today’s a holiday, you have to eat it.” After you consume the last delicious bite, your stomach gets revenge in the worst way: with a monster food baby spilling over your jeans.Belly bloat is your body’s way of saying, "you stuffed me," Keri Gans, RD, a New York City nutritionist, tells Health. This can be hard to avoid during holidays, when stuffing yourself is expected. Bloating can also be triggered by eating something your stomach doesn’t agree with, chowing down too quickly, and&nb
As ice sheet melts, Greenland's fjords become less salty

As ice sheet melts, Greenland's fjords become less salty

Science
Oct. 13 (UPI) -- New data suggests the water around Greenland is becoming less salty as the island's ice sheet melts.Researchers with Denmark's Aarhus University detailed the impact of melting ice on Greenland's coastal waters in a new paper published this week in the journal Scientific Reports.The loss of ice in Greenland is relatively well documented. Over the last two decades, the island's ice has roughly doubled its melt rate. But few studies have looked at how the influx of freshwater is impacting coastal waters.Since 2003, Aarhus scientists have been analyzing water samples collected from Young Sound and from the sea joust outside the sound. Young Sound is located in northeast Greenland. Between 2003 and 2015, researchers recorded a four-fold increase in the amount of fresh water acc...
Small-business employees less likely to get cancer screenings

Small-business employees less likely to get cancer screenings

Health
SATURDAY, Oct. 14, 2017 -- Waiters, contractors and other employees of America's small businesses are more likely to miss out on cancer screening, mostly because of a lack of insurance, new research shows. "Workers employed at smaller organizations had substantially lower breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening rates" compared to people working at larger corporations or organizations, American Cancer Society (ACS) researchers reported.And poorer insurance coverage accounted for much of these differences, said the team led by ACS researcher Stacey Fedewa.One breast cancer specialist who reviewed the findings said the issue is an important one, because mammograms, colonoscopies and other screens can save lives -- not to mention health care dollars.So it's crucial to "find ways t...
