Tell those mosquitos to bug off!

9 Ways to combat mosquitos naturally

Before they breed, congregate, bite, and drive you indoors, consider these natural ways to combat summer's worst foe: the mosquito.

Turn On a Fan

I'm sorry, could you repeat that?

10 Common noises that can cause permanant hearing loss

What Counts as Excessive Noise?

Frightening fact: Hearing loss can occur after a one-time noise exposure at 120 decibels, such as gunfire, or continuous noise exposure to dangerous levels of 85 decibels or above over a prolonged period of time. It's important to know what levels are safe in order to protect your hearing:

110-140 decibels:
Rock concert or jet engine
Nail gun
Ambulance siren
Home stereo speakers at maximum volume

* Just 1 minute of exposure to noises at this level can result in permanent hearing loss, according to the National Institutes of Health.

85-100 decibels:
Garbage truck
Power mower

* Continual exposure to noises in this range can cause permanent hearing loss.

But with workers facing stagnant wages and increases in the cost of living, it’s little wonder tipping has become more widespread, he says.

Here’s a guide to some of the other more unusual places customers are expected to tip in 2013 (besides fast-food chains).
