By early evening, police were roaming the area by the dozens, kitted out with riot gear and driving armored cars. Helicopters hovered above. But by the time Shapiro’s speech let out around 9 p.m. local time, the night had gone without great tumult or physical injury reported by police – unlike several other run-ins the city has seen over the past year between extremists on the right and left.

So THAT'S Why Some People Don't Need To Use Deodorant
With rising temperatures and long summer days on the way, most of us are trying to figure out the best way to curb heavy sweating and body odor. But if you’re one of the lucky few who don’t possess the gene that produces odor in your armpits ― it’s called ABCC11 ― you don’t even have to worry about deodorant. According to the website LiveScience, the presence of the gene means that your armpits lack a chemical that, when combined with sweat, bacteria feeds on to produce smelly body odor.   In January 2013, Ian Day, a genetic epidemiologist at the University of Bristol and Santiago Rodr...

Trump Is Ruining My Teeth
It shouldn’t have been a shock when my tooth broke off, but of course, it was. For months, my jaw and teeth have been in a constant state of clenching and grinding. Now, a molar had broken in half, pushed over the edge by one bite of a salted caramel cookie and a steady diet of political news-induced stress. Research shows that as much as 70 percent of bruxism (the medical term for jaw and tooth grinding) occurs as a result of stress and anxiety.
