According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a deadly bug has been reported in southern regions of the United States. You should be extremely careful. Even though the bug looks harmless, it can carry a Trypanosoma cruzi parasite that causes Chagas disease. These bugs are typically found in the southern United States, Mexico, Central America and South America. Almost 8 million people are infected by this parasite, worldwide.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is not easy for this bug to give a human Chagas disease. The disease is transmitted through the bug’s feces. A person can only get Chagas disease from this deadly bug if the feces get rubbed into a bite wound or enter through an exposed body part such as the mouth or eyes. The species typically found in southern regions in the United States looks similar to the species that are common to Chagas disease.
The tiny insect feeds on human blood much like a mosquito, but it is specific to biting the face of its victims. The bite from this deadly bug begins to itch and as the host scratches the bite introducing the pathogen. People who are bitten don’t normally feel sick, so they don’t seek medical care. But, it ends up causing heart disease in about 30% of those who are infected.
Known as the triatomine bug — or less informally the “kissing bug” — according to 11-ALIVE News, the insect has been reported all across the southern regions of the United States. Below, you can see all the states that have reported the bug’s presence.
All the states where the “kissing bug” has been reported.
Our native species are capable of carrying the Chagas Disease pathogen, but they don’t defecate as part of their feeding behavior therefore, the pathogen is not transmitted to humans. If you think you may have found one of the bugs you can bring the sample to your closest CDC office.
Specifically, the CDC states the following about “kissing bugs,” says NBC-12 News:
The CDC says these bugs can live in cracks and holes indoors and in outdoor spaces including:
Between rocky structures
In rock, wood, brush piles, or beneath bark
In rodent nests or animal burrows
In outdoor dog houses or kennels
In chicken coops or houses
To keep these bugs away from you home, the CDC suggests:
Sealing cracks and gaps around windows, walls, roofs, and doors
Removing wood, brush, and rock piles near your house
Using screens on doors and windows and repairing any holes or tears
If possible, making sure yard lights are not close to your house
Having pets sleep indoors, especially at night
Keeping your house and any outdoor pet resting areas clean
If you think you’ve found this dangerous bug, the CDC suggests that you should not touch or squash the bug. Place a container on top of the bug, slide the bug inside, and fill it with rubbing alcohol or, if not available, freeze the bug in the container. Then, you may take it to your local extension service, health department, or a university laboratory for species identification.
Body language is a form of nonverbal and often unconscious communication in which physical behaviors, rather than words, are used to express or convey information. For millions of years, our ancestors navigated through life and survived by working together in groups. They effectively communicated their needs, observations and desires with each other, and before the use of language this was all done using different forms of nonverbal communication through body language. These ancient mechanisms still remain with us today and can give interesting clues about our feelings and personalities.
Body language often plays an important role in job interviews, on dates, in relationships and in social gatherings. According to Dr. Paul Eckman, how we sit is often overlooked when it comes to body language, as most people pay attention to facial expressions and hand gestures rather than the legs. While we are often unconscious about which position we choose to sit down in, there’s something we can learn about ourselves when it comes to the body language of our legs.
In this fun test, have a seat and notice how you naturally place your legs, then read below to see what it possibly reveals about your personality:
If you find yourself regularly sitting in this position, it shows that you are an honest and trustworthy person who is also sometimes unsure of themselves. The wider stance of the feet relates to telling the truth, while the inverted positioning of the feet relates to an unsure personal position.
People who frequently sit in position 1 are often very interested in others and are the kind of people that you love to talk to. They have great listening skills and are wonderful supporters. A little quirky, spontaneous, and with a great sense of humor, you’re always entertained when you’re with them.
If you prefer to sit with your legs crossed, it shows that you tend to be more reserved and take your time before choosing who to trust. If the knees point towards the person in front of you it can indicate honesty, and if they point away from the person it can represent discomfort or guardedness in conversation.
People who regularly sit in position 2 tend to be professionals who are ambitious, passionate and have a certain status in their careers. They are not likely to conform to the crowd but stand strong in confidence doing their own thing. Their standards are higher than the average person, and their quality of life reflects it. While not always willing to be vulnerable around others, they often will help those who really need it.
People who prefer to sit in position 3 tend to be friendly, relaxed and generally happy with their lives. The open knees represent a general honesty and truthfulness while the feet close together can represent sensitivity and some level of introversion.
People who naturally sit in position 3 are easily approachable and are able to get along with just about anyone they meet. They’re dependable, highly liked by others, and have an inner peace that draws others to them. They’ve done a large amount of personal and emotional growth in their lives, and their heightened emotional intelligence allows them to be more understanding and compassionate towards others.
If you find yourself comfortable sitting in position 4, then you are likely a straight-forward person who can be gentle and reserved, but when asked will tell it how it is and doesn’t beat around the bush. The legs both pointing forward represent honesty, while the feet close together represent a measure of being reserved and well-mannered.
Those who sit in position 4 are often minor perfectionists who feel most comfortable when things are in order. Highly responsible, intelligent, and on point describe them. They’re not fans of small talk but they can tolerate a decent amount of it. They spend as much time as they can out in nature, traveling or relaxing on the beach. New and interesting topics keep them motivated and passionate about life.
People who prefer to sit in position 5 are passionate, intimate, and follow their hearts whenever possible. The legs completely closed and pointed away represents a strong inner focus and also is a subconscious distancing behavior reflecting hesitance to open one’s heart completely to another.
Those who feel comfortable sitting in position 5 are dreamers and doers. They have wonderful imaginations, are goal-oriented, and when they set their hearts on something, nothing stands in their way from getting what they want. Their deep need for intimacy reflects their desire to share their loving ideas with, and ultimately, to help others. Relaxed but driven, calm but passionate, smiling but filled with the fire of love, these people are treasures to have as close friends.
Which sitting position do you feel most comfortable in?
Keeping white clothes perfectly white after every laundry is quite a challenge. Expensive detergents or stain removers won’t do the trick, plus they are packed with chemicals.

3. Vinegar and lemon
The combination of vinegar and lemon juice is the most powerful stain remover you will ever use. Wash your clothes with this, and you will never ever see those ugly stains again. You will definitely love the citrusy smell on your clothes.

She buries his head in his chest
Ladies, did you know that men love when a woman puts her head on their chest? Well yes, they feel like real men who give their loved one a sense of security.
She plays with his hair when he drives a car
He “receives” this act as an expression of love, affection and need for contact from the partner.
She praises him on Facebook
I really think that this is kind of obvious – he “enjoys” when she shares pictures with him .
She’s a good listener
This will make your man feel the love.
She sends him SMS/Calls when she’s on a meeting with friends
Your man will be very happy when you tell him that you’re thinking of him, even when you’re busy with something else.
She turns out his affection in public
You catch his hand (first), or when you hold him in the checkout line; when you correct his hair – all these gestures make his heart beat faster.
Whether your eyes hurt from straining, or simply from concentrating, can negatively impact your vision. This happens when your eye muscles need to “stretch”.
However, most of us cannot afford to walk away from our work for extended periods of time, and so must push through the headaches, blurred vision, and dryness.
Fortunately, there are 10 eye exercises to combat eye fatigue and improve your vision.
1. Gaze Into Darkness.
You don’t even have to find a dark room to perform this exercise. Simply place your hands in front of your eyes and stare into the dark hollow for a few minutes. To make the most of this technique, place your elbows on your desk or another hard surface, rest your head in your hands, and just relax.
2. Move Your Eyes From Side to Side.
You might look like a crazy person if your colleagues see you doing this, but moving your eyes from side to side can remarkably improve your concentration and vision. Glance left, focus on what you see, and then glance to the right. Do this five times. Repeat the whole cycle three times.
3. Move Your Eyes Up and Down.
Again, you might look a little strange doing this exercise, but you’ll be the one laughing when your eye for detail becomes much stronger than that of your coworkers. First look up, concentrate on what you see, and then look down. Do this five times. Repeat the whole cycle three times.
4. Move Your Eyes Diagonally.
This is where the eye exercises start to get tough. Start by looking straight ahead, and then look down and to the left. Move your eyes in a diagonal motion towards the upper right. Focus on what you see, then move your eyes to the bottom right and diagonally toward the upper left. Repeat the exercise five times, and repeat the cycle three times.
5. Roll Your Eyes.
Sit up straight, take a deep breath, and relax. Then slowly roll your eyes to the left, and keep rolling until you’re looking straight again. Do this five times in a clockwise motion, then five more times in a counterclockwise motion. Repeat the cycle three times.
6. Focus Near and Far.
Take a pencil, pen, or another small object and hold it half an arm’s length away (bend your elbow). Look at something in the distance, focus on it, and then focus on the pencil. Look at something far again, and then bring your focus back to the pencil. Do this five times. Repeat the cycle three times.
Sit up straight and relax. Bring your focus to the point between your eyebrows, concentrate on what you see, and then look straight ahead. Repeat this exercise five times, for three cycles.
Continue to relax and looking forward, but this time when you focus, focus on the tip of your nose. Look up and concentrate on something in the distance, then look down at your nose again. Do this five times. Repeat the cycle three times.
9. Rest Your Eyes.
Close your eyes and squeeze them tight. Keep them this way for two to three seconds. Then, without opening your eyes, relax the muscles around your eyes. Keep them rested for a few seconds, and then squeeze them tight again. Repeat this exercise ten times.
10. Massage Your Eyes.
To wrap up your eye exercises, close your eyes and then gently massage the eyelids in a circular motion. Don’t press too hard, as this will strain the eyes. Do ten circular motions in a clockwise motion, and then ten more in a counterclockwise motion.
Just like all the muscles of your body, your eyes need exercise to perform at maximum capacity. However, on the same token, if you work them too hard they become strained and start to wreak havoc on other parts of your body (i.e. the headaches). These tips have received great feedback from people who have tried them, so if you’re feeling extra tired or feel a headache coming on, give these tips a try. You won’t be disappointed!

It all starts with a kiss. When it comes to communicating the feelings you have for each other, you will say more with kisses than with words.
Kisses form a bond between two people and make them more connected, not just in the literal sense of the word, but kisses also build up a couple’s emotional attraction.
And though everybody’s kissing style and preferences differ, there are some universal tips for kissing that can improve your performance and make everything better.
There are 6 ways in which you can kiss a man and make him crazy about you.
1. Follow their lead
Take it slow, there’s no need to rush things. Enjoy every moment, and take it all in. Whatever you do, try not to overthink it, just let it play itself out.
But don’t freeze either. If you are kissing for a while, they will move from fast to slow, from sweet to passionate, so follow their lead and listen to your feelings.
2. Don’t judge everything by the first kiss
Don’t worry if the first kiss doesn’t go as you imagined. Sometimes our expectations are not easy to reach, especially when we’ve imagined the kiss a million times in our head before it ever happened.
Kissing is a skill in itself, and it gets better with time and practice. We all have different kissing styles, and yours and your man’s might not match right from the start.
That happens often to people, and it’s the most natural occurrence. That’s why the best thing to do is to stop over-analyzing, and start practicing more often. As long as you are into kissing him, everything will be more than ok.
3. Use your hands to enhance the feelings
You are literally making bonds and pulling someone closer by using your hands in your kissing session.
All the receptors in your body will be working overtime, and the intensity of the kiss will be heightened. That will make the whole experience more intimate.
4. Bite & nibble
This is something that should be done delicately. You don’t want to hurt him. You want to spark his imagination.
It’s really very simple. All you have to do is make little additions to your kissing session. While you are in the middle of kissing, gently and lightly take his lip between your teeth, and pull it slowly back.
It will drive him crazy, and he’ll want you more and more.
5. Don’t forget about his erogenous zones
Men are just as sensitive as women are, but you have to know what will trigger their senses. For starters,their ears are one of the most sensitive areas a man has. Suck, slowly kiss and lick his ear.
The same is with his neck. He will get goosebumps all over, just feeling your warm breath. His breath will be heavier. You will be able to hear his heartbeat racing, and it will definitely make him aroused beyond measure.
6. Kiss every inch of his body
Or almost every inch—you don’t have to go overboard. Always start by kissing him on the lips or with neck kisses, and then slowly proceed to the rest of his body.
A lot of men wouldn’t admit it, but their stomach is also one of their weak areas. Place kisses and pecks on his stomach, and see how he responds.
Be imaginative and experiment. Kisses all over will heat up the whole situation before you actually engage in any sexual activity.
