    SNORERS have been warned that ignoring their problem raises the risk of them dying in a car crash. Not everyone who snores is aware that they may in fact have a health condition called sleep apnoea. 1People who snore are at an increased risk of dangerous driving, research showsCredit: Getty Sleep apnoea is when a person’s breathing stops  for around 10 seconds to a minute while they sleep because their airways are narrowing. This happens repeatedly over the night. It causes a person to make the occasional gasping or choking sound in the night as well as loud snoring. Although a person with sleep apnoea is not aware of it, their condition wakes them up repeatedly in the night, causing daytime tiredness. The NHS says that without treatment, people with the condition have a higher chance of having a serious accident caused by feeling sleepy, such as a car accident.

    The armorer for Rust filed a lawsuit against the film's ammunition supplier, alleging the company's ammunition handling led to the on-set fatal shooting. Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed filed the suit seeking compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorney's fees, and more on Wednesday in New Mexico’s Second Judicial District Court, arguing that Seth Kenney and his company PDQ Arm & Prop had mixed live and dummy rounds on set, according to Fox News. "Defendants distributed boxes of ammunition purporting to contain dummy rounds, but which contained a mix of dummy and live ammunition to the Rust production," the suit read, according to a copy acquired by Variety. AMERICAN AIRLINES PASSSENGER ACCUSED OF VANDALIZING PLANE COCKPIT "Hannah and the entire Rust movie crew relied on the Defendants' misrepresentation that they provided only dummy ammunition.

    A SMILE can hide a thousand tears - or so goes the saying. But there might actually be something in it... 1 'Smiling depression' is not a technical term but is increasingly being used to describe one of the most common mental illnesses It's easy to brush off concerns from friends and family, with a smile and quick, "I'm fine". Yet, beneath the surface, darker forces may be at work, according to experts. "Smiling depression" is a term used more and more - it's the idea you can appear happy to others while suffering depression internally. Some may well question whether it is a real, mental health condition. But Olivia Remes, a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge said while smiling depression is not a technical term used by medics, "it is certainly possible to be depressed and manage to successfully mask the symptoms". She warns the condition put people at even greater risk of suicide - the biggest killer of people under the age of 35 in the UK. That's why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone...

READ MORE: Caught On Video: Vandal Smashes OMNY Screens In Subway Investigators spent much of their time overnight and in the morning on the busy block combing for clues about what led to the crash. The 57-year-old victim’s family told CBS2 he was hit in front of his home in East Flatbush around 10 p.m. Wednesday. He was getting something from his car when he was struck, they said. A woman said she rushed out of her house near East 37th Street and Avenue D when she heard the commotion. She saw the victim laying in the street. “I heard a terrible bang. I didn’t realize it was somebody, I thought it was two cars as usual. But when I came out, the man was on the ground bleeding. Breathing, but bleeding,”  the woman told Dhillon. She and other neighbors were horrified. READ MORE:...
    Doctors who do not use MRI scans on all COVID-19 patients after infection could be missing 85 percent of dangerous heart inflammation cases linked to the disease. Researchers from 13 schools in the Big Ten athletic conferences performed Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) on 1,597 student athletes that tested positive for coronavirus. Screenings determined that 37 athletes had the inflammation, known as myocarditis, with specifically nine student-athletes reporting clinical myocarditis and 28 with subclinical myocarditis.  With standard testing based on only cardiac symptoms, only five of the cases would have been detected, meaning using CMR detected nearly eight-fold more cases. The research shows that more people than expected may experience long-term COVID-19 symptoms, and that CMR testing may be necessary to truly catch all cases of the condition.  Cardiac MRIs caught 85% more cases of heart inflammation, known as myocarditis, compared to standard screenings.  Florida guard Keyontae Johnson (pictured) became the most high profile case of myocarditis last year, when he collapsed during a game against Florida State Myocarditis is a condition where a persons heart becomes inflamed and expands.    The...
    Federal officials on Tuesday pulled the brakes on the use of the Johnson & Johnson shot after reports of six patients experiencing blood clots and a “stroke-like illness.” The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they’re using the pause to look into whether the episodes are linked to the single-dose vaccine as well as educate patients and health professionals about the condition. “We’re recommending this pause while we work together to fully understand these events, and also so we can get information out to healthcare providers and vaccine recipients,” Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock said. Here’s what to know about the cases so far: Who is being affected by the blood clots? Six women, whose ages range from 18 to 48, experienced a “severe stroke-like illness” an average of nine days after receiving the J&J vaccine, officials said. The FDA said the cases involved rare blood clots known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), which draws blood from the brain, along with low platelet counts, a condition known as thrombocytopenia. Acting FDA Commissioner Janet...

    Another potentially dangerous blood condition has been spotted in a handful of patients given the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, the EU's drug watchdog has announced.  The European Medicines Authority (EMA) said five cases of capillary leak syndrome had been reported in vaccinated patients on the continent. The rare condition sees blood leak from tiny vessels into muscles and body cavities, resulting in a sudden drop in blood pressure. If left untreated, it can cause organ failure. Data suggests the UK's regulator, the MHRA, had spotted three cases of capillary leak syndrome out of 20million people given the AstraZeneca vaccine by late March.  It is another blow for the British-made jab, which has been restricted for certain age groups in various countries around the world, including under-30s in Britain, after reports of rare blood clots in the brain and abdomen. Officials insisted there is still no evidence the jab causes the blood conditions and stressed the benefits of vaccination far outweighed the risk. Meanwhile, the EMA revealed it is also reviewing reports of rare clots involving Johnson and Johnson's Covid vaccine, which...

    At least eleven deaths have been linked to a dangerous winter storm system that's breaking records across the country. Some four million homes and business in Texas were without power early Tuesday as the electric system struggled to meet demand, according to poweroutage.us. Among the dead were a woman and girl who were in an attached garage in Houston where a car was being run because the lack of power meant there was no heat in the home, reports the CBS affiliate there, KHOU-TV. Authorities said they suffered carbon monoxide poisoning. So did a man and boy from the same family, who were hospitalized. There was no word on their condition. In Fort Worth, two people were in critical condition and one was in serious condition from what was believed to be carbon monoxide poisoning, reports CBS Dallas. A child was also among those overcome but was said to be in good condition. Also in Texas, a 78-year-old man died after falling on his front lawn and being stuck in the cold for two hours.

    The Navy began releasing documents from the investigation into the deadliest submarine disaster in U.S. history this week, revealing that the ship's commanding officer noted a "dangerous condition" on the vessel before it was lost. The first of the documents released were 300 pages from the official inquiry into the sinking of the USS Thresher in 1963. The loss of the nuclear-powered submarine and all 129 men aboard during a test dive in the Atlantic Ocean delivered a blow to national pride during the Cold War and became the impetus for safety improvements. Yellowed newspapers from April of 1963 declare the tragedy of the USS Thresher.
