    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — You never know these days what is going to show up on TikTok as the latest trend or craze some causing health concerns — but the newest one, involving tongue scraping, is quite the opposite, and is one that should be encouraged. The first question — what is a tongue scraper? “There are either metal or plastic device that you use and you scrape it across your tongue and it removes bacteria that harbor on your tongue,” said Dr. Katie Polley-Schemel. The bacteria that the scrapers move is the type that hides behind the bumps on your tongue that contain the taste buds. “Bacteria that cause gum disease, cavities, and bad breath tend to harbor around those papilla and the toothbrush doesn’t do a great job at cleaning it off,” Dr. Polley-Schemel said. This means that tongue scraping is indeed a good idea. “Absolutely. I recommend it for all of my patients,” Dr. Polley-Schemel said. One might wonder why a thing like tongue scraping would become a TikTok trend, but it’s thought that people like things involving...

    PHILADELPHIA  (CBS/CNN) — Running shoes, keys, watch — are these the essentials you always grab before heading out for a jog? Ditching your running watch, especially if it’s a smartwatch or fitness tracker, could actually improve your workout — or at least your stress levels and enjoyment of running, some research suggests. READ MORE: 16-Year-Old Ahjaon Jackson Shot, Killed While Coming Home From Work With Twin Sister, Philadelphia Police SayData-free exercise The idea of unplugged running is gaining steam in the fitness community, as recent studies show that obsessively tracking fitness metrics can lead to negative mindsets and outcomes. “There is certainly evidence out there that people are becoming obsessed by it — people who used to have an interest in their sport and got enjoyment out of the sport, but now that’s switching to the data,” said Eoin Whelan, a senior lecturer in business information systems at the National University of Ireland Galway. His research explores the psychology behind engagement with social media and fitness tracking apps. “People are getting more enjoyment out of gathering the data and analyzing that and...
    (CNN)Running shoes, keys, watch -- I used to always grab the essentials before heading out for a jog.When I first began running in high school on the track team, it made sense to carefully clock every mile and push myself to race for personal bests. But as I transitioned from running for sport to running for recreation as an adult, I found that tracking my workouts became more harmful than helpful. Casual runs turned into a competition with myself, usually ending in frustration if I failed to keep up with the pace dictated by my watch.Ditching your running watch, especially if it's a smartwatch or fitness tracker, could actually improve your workout -- or at least your stress levels and enjoyment of running, some research suggests. It wasn't until my watch battery died several years ago that I first experienced the sense of calm that comes with running for the pure joy of it. I never replaced the watch battery, and experts say that might not be a bad thing for my fitness goals. Read MoreData-free exerciseThe idea of unplugged...

    The former Blue Jays pitcher might be ready to rejoin this playoff-primed franchise — but should Toronto bring him back into the fold? Blue Jays fans have much to be take pride in this year, even if their team missed playoffs — it was by a single win in the MLB’s most competitive division. The Jays are building something in Toronto, something fans and even former players are repeating as they head into the offseason earlier than expected. One advocate for this new Blue Jays crew is Marcus Stroman, the Jays’ former pitcher who now throws for the New York Mets. But if Stroman’s wishes come true, he could be coming back to Toronto for a reunion. Would you like to see @STR0 back in a @BlueJays uniform? ???? pic.twitter.com/1sodd2hFwi — Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) October 5, 2021 Should the Toronto Blue Jays bring back Marcus Stroman at pitcher? If it were up to Jays fans, the answer would be mixed: some would love to see him home for a reunion, while others blame him for the “toxic culture” that team managers...
    The location of the router is one of the most important decisions we must make, not only because this will determine devices that will be close enough to it to be wireda, but also because this will determine the starting point of our wireless connection, that is, the place from which it will emit the signal. It goes without saying that if we place the router too far from the devices and equipment that we want to connect in a wired way, we will have a very serious problem, since the cables will not reach, and we may have to look for impossible positions and placements. Regarding the Wi-Fi connection, the location of the router will determine the scope of it. Let’s see a couple of examples to understand it better. Imagine a scenario in which the router is placed in a room located in the lower left corner of a house, positioned at a very low height and surrounded by some obstacles. If we have forced this placement, we may not have problems connecting, by cable, the devices that...
    Saving Earth’s resources is important. For this reason, a study was carried out a long time ago on how much water would we save by pissing in the shower every day. However, there are other reasons not to do so. Especially if you are woman, as there are a couple of things you should know about pissing in the shower. And so a doctor has made it known in several of her videos on TikTok. As we said, a couple of years ago some students calculated how much water could be saved if we did one pee a day in the shower. They talked about the first of the day, of course; But it can actually be applied to any time you decide to shower. The results? Pissing in the shower for a year is save about 2,190 liters of water, they point out from IFLScience. And if we all did it at the same time, about 699,000 million liters of water could be saved. They are not few. However, perhaps not everyone should. Especially women. Yes, you save water...
    If you’re the parent of a young adult, you may be asked to co-sign for a car loan or an apartment lease. Before you agree, know what’s at stake — you could be putting your own financial security at risk. WHAT CO-SIGNING REALLY MEANS When you co-sign, you become fully responsible for someone else’s debt. If they don’t pay, you’re on the hook. Even if they pay on time, being a co-signer can make it harder for you to qualify for credit, because that debt is considered yours and creditors could see you as overextended. If your child doesn’t pay on time, you could suffer significant damage to your credit score. When you put your name on someone else’s debt, it’s smart to make sure you can access account information so you know if trouble is brewing. “You need to be prepared for the worst-case scenario, which is the other person is unable to pay and they ghost you,” says Kelley Long, a certified public accountant and consumer financial education advocate for the American Institute of CPAs. ...
    Given I’ve spent the last 30 years writing and researching sex, the amount of unsolicited penis pics I’ve received in that time have been remarkably few. I’m still shocked when they arrive but more in a ‘What on earth do they think is going to happen next?’ way. Are they trying to make me laugh? (Most men would be horrified to discover this is the usual reaction.) Do they expect me to comment on their ‘manhood’? Ooh and ahh over how big it is? Ask them to hotfoot it over to ravage me? Or is it done simply to shock?  But turns out exhibitionism wasn’t the primary motivation for men who took part in a large study on genital selfies. Most said – wait for it - they sent a photo of their bits as a form of flirtation. Forget flowers or love poems, today’s men think the way to a woman’s heart is to send a photo of their privates.  Most wearily delete them and get on with their day, shoulders just that little bit more slumped. Others feel...
    Several young men from New York have been accused of defrauding the government and identity theft to earn large sums in COVID relief funds, before sharing their earnings on social media. A group of eight men from Brooklyn were formally charged in the District Court of Eastern New York on Tuesday for their alleged role in stealing COVID relief funds, the New York Post reported. Six of the eight men, who range from 18 to 25-years-old, were formally charged, while two of the suspects reportedly remain at large with warrants out for their arrest, according to the New York Post. 8 NYC suspects accused of stealing $2M in COVID relief, flaunting cash online https://t.co/e0ygeGzlBw pic.twitter.com/y9hQYDVdmx — New York Post Metro (@nypmetro) May 19, 2021 In the affidavit, the group was accused of intentionally using stolen identities, such as credit cards and social security numbers, to fraudulently file for COVID unemployment benefits that resulted in $2 million being sent out to them between June of 2020 and April of 2021. Money that was received from the benefits was funneled to...
    (CNN)Over the past few months, public and private innovation in America has coalesced around one goal: bribe people in order to get them vaccinated against Covid-19. Getting people vaccinated is lofty and noble, necessary for public health, necessary to defend those who can't be vaccinated, and if bribery gets us there, I'm all for it. David M. PerryKrispy Kreme promised a free doughnut, which may have been the first such incentive to make national news (because hey, free doughnut!), but local retailers have been creative in their own programs. Several dispensaries around the country and activists on the streets of New York offered free joints. Numerous major employers such as Kroger, Publix, Target and AutoZone are offering time off, transportation, and cash bonuses. Chef José Andrés offered DC residents $50 gift cards. A brewery in Buffalo may have been the first to cleverly give new life to the old "shot and a beer," when they offered a free drink to anyone who got vaccinated at a pop-up clinic on site. Others have followed, including a Cleveland brewery that charged...

Everyone staring at the wreckage must wonder why it did. The PM spent part of last week in a row over a leak of text messages he exchanged with Sir James Dyson last year. Nothing in them was untoward. But Labour hope they are uncovering another lobbying scandal. Number 10 then made the great mistake They briefed that the PM thought he had identified the leak’s source as Dominic Cummings, the PM’s ex-adviser.

    A portrait of George Floyd is seen during a Black Lives Matter protest on June 17, 2020, in New York City. In preparation for the upcoming murder trial of former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin on Friday, the city approved $1.18 million in funding for communications, including plans to hire six social media influencers. The goal was to use a flat rate of $2,000 per influencer to have them reinforce the city's messaging directly targeting people of color in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, city officials told CBS Minnesota. The city, however, is backtracking on the plan after it garnered fair criticism from activists. Toussaint Morrison, an activist with an Instagram following of more than 11,000 users, told CBS Minnesota he's worried about the predictable bias coming from influencers paid by the city. “The key word here is ‘city-approved’,” he told the news station. “What do you think the message is going to be? It’s going to be pro-city, it’s going to be anti-protest.” City officials clarified their plan on Monday during a virtual public safety meeting preparing for the trial. David Rubedor,...
    Prince Harry has defended Netflix's The Crown, saying it gives a 'good idea' of the pressures faced by members of the Royal Family.  The Duke of Sussex, 36, shared his feelings on the Netflix show - which has come under fire over its unflattering portrayal of the royals, including Prince Charles - on The Late Late Show with James Corden.  Speaking on the TV special, filmed in Los Angeles, Harry said The Crown is 'loosely based on the truth' and captures the feeling of needing to put 'duty and service above everything else'. The segment was filmed before he and wife Meghan confirmed they will not be returning as working members of the Royal Family.   Prince Harry has defended Netflix's The Crown, saying it gives a 'good idea' of the pressures faced by members of the Royal Family.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Jeremy Howard knows a thing or two about masks. He joined us often in the early days of the pandemic and did everything from tutorials on how to make your own mask to explaining in visual detail why they're so important.He's a research scientist at USF and founded Masks4All trying to spread awareness about the effectiveness of masks.OK, now that we've established he knows his face coverings, we have a whole new slate of questions to pepper him with:Are cloth masks still effective?It depends. Cloth masks can be much more effective if you're able to add a filter to the inner layer of the mask. Howard says filter material is pretty readily available online these days and it has similar qualities to N95 masks. Also, cloth masks with nose wires can help close the gap around your nose. "Without those two things, a cloth mask doesn't do a hell of a lot to protect the wearer, although it does still protect other people from you," Howard said.How do new COVID-19 variants impact masks?"We don't know anything...

    Ben Shapiro questioned the wisdom of President Trump allowing himself to be repeatedly interviewed by veteran journalist Bob Woodward after audio excerpts were published by The Washington Post Wednesday. "Who in the hell thought it was a good idea for Trump to talk to Bob Woodward?" the "Ben Shapiro Show" host asked Thursday, later adding that "letting the fox into the henhouse is a really bad idea, particularly with President Trump, who is fond of overstating things. "He is a real estate magnate with a gift for puffery." TRUMP LASHES OUT AT WOODWARD BOOK AS 'POLITICAL HIT JOB' Trump has been criticized after telling Woodward in a Feb. 7 interview that the coronavirus was "deadly stuff" weeks before comparing it to seasonal flu. A month later, on March 19, Trump admitted to Woodward that he "wanted to always play it [the virus] down. I still like playing it down because I don't want to create a panic." Shapiro characterized Woodward as a "pseudo-journalist" whose last several books "have come under serious question for decontextualizing comments." "He'll report rumors, doesn't footnote his stuff ... he's...

    President Trump claimed that a recent New York Times report that he had inquired about having his face added to Mount Rushmore was "Fake News," although he was not exactly opposed to the idea. The Times reported on Saturday that in 2019, a White House aide asked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem's office about how a president could get added to the famed mountain sculpture. CNN later picked up the Times' report, adding a reference to a 2018 Oval Office meeting where, Noem said, Trump asked her about it directly. TRUMP, IN FIERY MOUNT RUSHMORE ADDRESS, DECRIES RISE OF 'FAR-LEFT FASICM,' CALLS ON AMERICANS TO RISE UP "This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN," Trump tweeted Sunday evening. "Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!" Noem claimed, according to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, that she had encouraged Trump to visit South Dakota, mentioning Mount Rushmore, to which Trump replied that it was his "dream" to have his face...
    Fox & Friends acknowledged that it might not have been wise for President Donald Trump to hold an indoor campaign rally in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday, the Fox News morning show broke down the possible reasons why Trump’s Tulsa rally ended up having a smaller crowd than anticipated (the campaign boasted of 1 million requests, some 6,000 showed up to half-fill the stadium). Brian Kilmeade noted that the Trump campaign will have to think about this ahead of their upcoming event in Arizona, now that the state has seen “a slight tick up” in coronavirus cases. “They have to think about how they want to do it from here,” Kilmeade said. “Let’s be honest, as experienced as anyone is, no one has ever been through a campaign with a pandemic and civil unrest, two things out of control of Democrats and Republicans.” Fox host Steve Doocy proposed that some people might not have shown up at the rally for fear of “anarchists.” “I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to put 20,000 people...
    Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council and one of President Trump’s closest allies, said on Sunday that people attending Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Okla., next weekend should “probably” wear a mask to prevent more coronavirus infections. Kudlow noted that certain states are seeing hospitalizations of people with COVID-19 going up, but he attributed that to people being allowed to have elective surgeries. He added that he does not believe there is a second wave of the virus. “I want to also say, though, that hospitalizations may be going up, but that's because elective procedures are now permitted," Kudlow said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” "And maybe, most importantly, Jake, although the case rate has increased a bit, we're not talking about a second round here.” Kudlow added that fatality rates “continue to be very low.” “That’s probably the ultra key metric,” he said.

    Celebrities from Katy Perry and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to Susan Sarandon are shining a light on police brutality by posting completely black photos on social media -- but not everyone thinks it’s a good idea. When posting a solid black block on Instagram, many celebrities used the hashtags #BlackoutTuesday and #justiceforgeorgefloyd. Blackout Tuesday is just one of the many forms of protest some have participated in as the nation grapples with George Floyd's death. Jon Bon Jovi, Steve Harvey, Don Cheadle, Kevin Bacon, Mandy Moore, Tiffany Trump, Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds, Jamie Lee Curtis and Chelsea Handler are among the dozens of other celebrities who have participated.
