Yawning May Be A Good Sign For Your Relatonship
Do you yawn right after your partner yawns? Researchers say the faster your partner yawns back at you, the healthier your relationship is. One scientist claims that humans don't pick up contagious yawning until they reach age four or five because certain parts of the brain need to develop, namely the parts related to social skills and empathy. This scientist says he wonders "if you could tell someone was falling out of love with you by the timing of their yawn delay." Previous research has revealed that people yawn more quickly after an acquaintance yawns then when a stranger yawns, and that the more familiar and attached a person is to the yawner the more likely he or she will return the yawn quickly.

How To Keep Companies From Tracking You Online
Privacy please!  It seems that nothing we do is private anymore, especially with the era of the Internet.  yes, everything you search for and click through is tracked by companies (now you know how those specialty ads pop up).  Now you can reclaim your privacy!

Google and Apple recently rolled out a feature called the “Do Not Track.” DNT lets consumers opt out of third-party web tracking. To date, only 19% of users say they use this feature, according to a Forrester Research report, but it’s one of the simplest ways to keep third-party trackers at bay.

To initiate “Do Not Track” on your browser, go into your browser preferences and look for the tab labeled “Privacy.” Check the box to enable the DNT feature. You can get the same protection on your mobile phone by enabling DNT via your browser privacy settings. Most popular browsers offer a DNT option, including Google’s Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Explorer and Safari.

Modern Family Home For Sale

The home used for the exterior shots of the Dunphy family residence on Modern Family is up for sale. According to Huffington Post, the 4 bedroom/4.5 bathroom house located in West L.A. is on the market for $2.35 million.

Current owner, Paul Chaimes, scores a paycheck from ABC every time the property is shown on the show and the new owners will most likely have the same kind of offer from the network.  But be warned, Paul revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that his house has become a bit of a tourist attraction with people regularly knocking on his door asking to take pictures in his front yard.

Why You Cannot Escape Allergies
Do you suffer with seasonal allergies? Don't bother packing up and moving. U.S. researchers say you can't escape your allergies, no matter where you go. Researchers say, "This study suggests that people prone to developing allergies are going to develop an allergy to whatever is in their environment. It's what people become allergic to that differs." To find this, researchers analyzed blood serum data from about ten thousand Americans. They say they found that children between the ages of one and five, and children from the southern states displayed a higher prevalence of allergies than their peers living in other parts of the U.S. Researchers also found that people in higher socioeconomic status groups were more commonly allergic to dogs and cats, while those in lower socioeconomic status groups were more commonly allergic to shrimp and cockroaches.  (UPI)

People With Hard To Pronounce Names Untrustworthy?
People are judging each other all the time, we all know it. Now scientists say they've found that we trust strangers with easier-to pronounce names. Researchers from the University of California say when someone has an easy-to-pronounce name they come across as more familiar, and safer. Researcher even found that people thought claims attributed to easy-to-pronounce names were more likely to be true. Researchers say, "When we encounter new information, how easy or difficult it is to process plays and important role in all sorts of situations. For example, research shows people think food additives with easier names are safer than those with difficult names."
