Late risers more likely to die early? Wake me up from this nightmare | Andy Dawson
My dedication to watching woeful late-night TV is apparently a health hazard. Should society do more to cater to night owls?In my (admittedly self-regarding) opinion, I do my very best living between the hours of 11pm and, say, 3am. That ’s when my children have been confined to their beds and I have the relative freedom that allows me to consume television until my eyes start to sting. Essentially, I’m talking about repeated episodes of Bullseye (the originalJim Bowen incarnation, not the abhorrent Dave Spikey reboot), maybe some BBC4 music documentaries that I ’ve already seen seven or eight times, or o...

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif.—Patients today have access to tools that allow them to know much more about their personal health than ever before—for better or for worse.

How MDMA May Help with the Pain of PTSD

MDMA might be the answer for PTSD. What is PTSD? PTSD is a psychological condition that is triggered by a traumatic event. The person may suffer from nightmares or flashbacks, causing severe ...

Cadagan: Humor and tenacity after a stroke
Most parents try to discourage their children from indulging in humor about bodily functions like burping. But for Daniel and Lori Hooley, a simple smirk in response to a belch was the sign they needed that their daughter, Cadagan, was going to be okay. It was 2012 and 7-year-old Cadagan was asleep, tucked into bed for the night. Around 11 p.m., she suddenly awoke — but it wasn’t because of a nightmare or a late-night request for a glass of water. Instead, she seemed limp and couldn’t focus. Then she began throwing up. Born with an extremely rare genetic disorder called trisomy 12p, the little girl had al...

When Bullets Rained Down in Las Vegas, One Man ’s Hotel Room Became a Sanctuary for Strangers
Sunday was just not Aaron Banner-Goodspeed’s day. The TSA confiscated his shaving cream; he thought he might be able to sneak it through airport security, but he got busted.

Then he ate some dinner and went back to his room and tried to find an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm on TV. But the Tropicana hotel had no HBO. Just his luck. He was hanging out in his underwear, flipping through basic cable channels, when he heard a commotion outside his room on the first floor. “I th...

And while that will be a welcome change, as a Saudi woman, the change I’m really waiting for is something far more fundamental. I want women to be called by their own names by their fellow citizens.
