Seattle Sees Unexpected Consequences From $15 Per Hour Min. Wage
 
01:03
Low wage workers in Seattle who spent months agitating for a city-wide $15-per-hour minimum wage were quite successful in their quest. But many have suddenly found that the new rate has had unexpected consequences. Some workers across the city are left telling bosses to give them fewer hours at the higher wage because a full week’s earnings now puts them past the threshold for some welfare payments such as food stamps and assistance with rent. There have been other unforeseen consequences to the higher wage. Some restaurants are tacking on a 15 percent surcharge onto customer’s bills in order to avoid firing workers. Other stores, restaurants, and small businesses are simply closing down because they can’t afford the wage hike. By March of this year, for instance, restaurant closings increased at a much higher than average rate in Seattle. Many restaurants noted that the new wage put labor costs at nearly 50 percent of operating costs, and that made profit margins disappear. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/07/24/seattle-sees-unexpected-fallout-from-15-per-hour-min-wage/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by O&O Story Selection using http://wochit.com

Why Does Mexico Celebrate ​St. Patrick’s Day In A Big Way?
 
00:56
In the U.S., St. Patrick’s Day is usually celebrated with lots of parades and even more beer. Mexico shows its Irish pride in a different way. The day is celebrated as a sort-of military holiday, in honor of El Batallón de los San Patricios. Saint Patrick’s Battalion was a group of European immigrants and expatriates, overwhelmingly Irish, who had defected from the United States army to fight alongside Mexico during the U.S.-Mexico War of 1846-48. Their reason for deserting is largely attributed to religion. The U.S. and its army, was majority Protestant, and the Catholic servicemen felt marginalized and reminded of their experience under Protestant British rule in Ireland, so they fled to the Catholic confines of Mexico. http://fusion.net/story/282037/st-patricks-battalion-mexico-ireland/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Goldman Sachs Limits Interns to 17 Hour Workdays
 
01:14
Memo to Wall Street interns: go home and get some sleep. Goldman Sachs told its summer interns — all 2,900 of them — when they started their gigs this summer that they can’t be in the office between midnight and 7 a.m.. The 17-hour work day restriction is an attempt by the banking giants to curb some of their junior staffers’ long and grueling hours. One young banker told Atlantic writer Kevin Roose last year that the “banker 9 to 5” is 9 a.m. until 5 a.m. the next day. And 22-year-old Sarvshreshth Gupta complained to his father about regular 100 hour work weeks before he died earlier this year. Earlier this year, Bank of America told its staffers that they’ll be required to take a minimum of four weekends off per month. Goldman Sachs has also encouraged its staffers not to work on weekends, and began offering analysts full-time contracts instead of two-year contracts to relieve some of the pressure. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/tGnTl615qMg/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Surprise! 7-week Old Baby Says "Hello"
 
01:01
Most babies usually wait until they are at least one year old before they utter their first word. So a mother from Northern Ireland remained speechless recently, when her seven-WEEK-old son did this: ][ The surprised mom, Toni McCann, said she sensed her son Cillian was trying to mimic her before ultimately uttering "Hello". "If I hadn't videoed it, I’m sure people wouldn't have believed me", she told the Daily Mail, adding that she probably wouldn't have believed it herself. null http://www.wochit.com

Lying Comment Earns Kellyanne Conway Unintented Laughter
 
01:13
After a series of bizarre television appearances in which her messaging conflicted with the White House, it seemed that Kellyanne Conway was in the Trump Dog house. But now, Conway is back in the public eye. While speaking at D.C.'s Newseum during an examination of journalism in the Trump era, Conway said - without a hint of irony - "You can turn on the TV... and people literally say things that just aren't true." The crowd immediately erupted in laughter, and Kellyanne had to wait several moments before resuming, nodding and smiling as if to note that she, too, was in on the joke. And in another memorable moment from Conway's interview, moderator Michael Wolff referenced the Washington Post's tagline, saying "I'm going to tell you, when they say 'democracy dies in darkness,' you're the darkness," after which Conway paused again for the audience's laughter, before responding "I'm not the darkness." A fitting answer for the woman who coined the term "alternative facts." http://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/news/a44507/kellyanne-conways-newseum-panel/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Japan Building "Great Wall" Against Tsunamis
 
01:08
Four years after the tsunami ravaged much of its northeastern coast and killed over eighteen-thousand people, Japan is constructing a nearly 250-mile chain of cement seawalls to fend off future towering waves. Opponents of the 6.8 billion dollar wall, which in some places will reach nearly five stories high, say that the massive concrete barrier will damage marine ecology and scenery and hinder vital fisheries. Moreover, it will do only little to protect residents, and even worse - it'll foster complacency. Instead, they call for people to either move to higher ground, or to create a "green wall" of trees that perhaps won't stop the floods, but will weaken the impact of the waves. However those in favor of the "great wall", say it's a necessary evil, and one that will provide some jobs, at least for a time. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/35d608bb1ebe4766b33146e39b6044ba/japan-opts-massive-costly-sea-wall-fend-tsunamis http://www.wochit.com

Actress Olivia De Havilland Talks Sibling feud
 
01:17
Legendary actress Olivia de Haviliand is celebrating her 100th birthday today. In a rare interview, De Havilland is finally breaking her silence on Hollywood's most famous sibling rivalry. De Haviliand is a two-time Oscar winner and last living remnant of Hollywood's Golden Age. In the interview she finally talked about her true feelings about her late sister Joan Fontaine, revealing that she calls her "Dragon Lady." De Havilland said the "legend of a feud" with her sister was first created by an article entitled "Sister Act" in Life Magazine . The article followed the 1942 Oscars, where both sisters were nominated for an Academy Award. Joan Fontaine, at that time, was the lesser known sister. She won for the movie "Suspicion". De Havilland, meanwhile, had been nominated for "Hold Back the Dawn." De Haviliand said "A feud implies continuing hostile conduct between two parties. I cannot think of a single instance wherein I initiated hostile behavior. But I can think of many occasions where my reaction to deliberately inconsiderate behavior was defensive." http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/4e67281c3f754d0696fbfdee0f3f1469/Article_2016-07-01-EU--France-Olivia%20de%20Havilland/id-68ac2116a18f4c48b0953182c030edb1 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Two Tanzanian U.N. Peacekeepers Killed in Congo Ambush
 
01:03
The country's U.N. mission said Two United Nations peacekeepers from Tanzania were killed in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on Tuesday when their patrol was ambushed in an area where government forces are fighting Ugandan rebels. Felix Basse, spokesman for the mission known as MONUSCO, told Reuters the peacekeepers were attacked in the village of Kikiki, around 30 miles north of the town of Beni in North Kivu province. He said, "The ambush took place today, this afternoon ... The death toll is two and we have a couple of injured." The Congolese army said earlier on Tuesday that it had killed 16 Ugandan Allied Democratic Forces rebels during fierce fighting in the same zone over the weekend. Tuesday's ambush was the second attack on U.N. forces in the area in 48 hours after a MONUSCO helicopter was fired upon by unidentified gunmen on Monday. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/iXpXnbE9dlw/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Instant Karma For Manhattan Attorney's Viral Racist Rant
 
01:05
Attorney Aaron Schlossberg is getting a heavy dose of payback for recent actions. Schlossberg was videotaped this week at a Fresh Kitchen near his Madison Avenue law office Where he was berating restaurant employees.and diners for speaking Spanish Schlossberg even threatened to call immigration authorities. The next day, his face landed on the front page of the New York Daily News. It was positioned above a Spanish headline which translated to: "Screw you, idiot." And there's more video emerging, showing Schlossberg accosting another pedestrian. And to top it all off, 2 NYC lawmakers have filed a formal complaint against him. "What we witnessed in the vile video from Mr. Schlossberg, which has since gone viral, is a humiliating and insulting attack on the more than 50 years of progress that this nation has made since the civil rights movement. We watched Aaron's video and we were disgusted." Rubén Díaz Jr. and Rep. Adriano Espaillat. The 42 year old Schlossberg is now laying low, (hopefully) learning a lesson about verbally attacking innocent bystanders. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/new-york-politicians-file-formal-complaint-against-lawyer-whose-racist-n875006?cid=public-rss_20180517 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Yoshinori Ohsumi Wins Nobel Prize In Medicine For His Work On Autophagy
 
01:07
Yoshinori Ohsumi is a biologist at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and this year’s winner for the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. Ohsumi has received the prize for his work on autophagy, a method for breaking down and recycling large pieces of cellular junk, such as clusters of damaged proteins or worn-out organelles. To keep recycling machinery in good condition is crucial for the cells' health. Not enough recycling can cause cellular trash to build up and lead to neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and too much recycling has been linked to cancer. According to biologist Maria Masucci of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, Ohsumi‘s discoveries helped reveal the mechanism and significance of a fundamental physiological process. She said, “There is growing hope that this knowledge will lead to the development of new strategies for the treatment of many human diseases.” https://www.sciencenews.org/article/deciphering-cell%E2%80%99s-recycling-machinery-earns-nobel http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Joe Biden Attends Son Beau Biden's Emotional Funeral
 
01:01
Beau Biden's viewing service was emotional to say the least. Vice President Joe Biden, whose son tragically passed away from brain cancer five days ago at the young age of 46, was surrounded by friends and family Thursday at Beau's public service and viewing at Legislative Hall in Dover, Delaware. Biden, his wife Jill Biden, Beau's wife and kids and the rest of their family were understandably emotional while watching honor guards carry Beau's casket, which was draped with an American flag. The famous family shed tears as they said goodbye to the former Attorney General, who had been battling brain cancer for several years. In addition to the service and viewing, Beau was awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross, Delaware's highest honor, for his "heroism, meritorious service and outstanding achievement." http://www.eonline.com/news/663433/vice-president-joe-biden-attends-son-beau-biden-s-emotional-funeral-surrounded-by-family?cmpid=rss-000000-rssfeed-365-topstories&utm_source=eonline&utm_medium=rssfeeds&utm_campaign=rss_topstories http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Mexico's President In Another Corruption Scandal
 
01:17
Once again, Enrique Peña Nieto and his family appear to be benefiting from his position as president of Mexico. José Luis Montenegro and Julio Roa are reporters at The Guardian. According to Fusion, they recently revealed that Mexican businessman Ricardo Pierdant, who has operations in both the U.S. and Mexico, appears to have paid taxes for Peña Nieto’s family and allowed them to use his luxury apartment in Key Biscayne, Florida. The journalists reported that Pierdant also used a holding company to pay $29,703 in property taxes for the President's wife Angelica Rivera's apartment in 2013. Stranger still, the apartments are connected by a private elevator and share the same telephone number. One has to wonder: What did Pierdant expect in return for lending out his million-dollar property and paying Rivera’s taxes? That's unknown at this time, but the journalists have explained that Pierdant’s company, Grupo Pierdant, is expected to bid for a lucrative government contract to manage seaports in Mexico. http://fusion.net/story/337255/jorge-ramos-another-scandal-pena-nieto/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

NTSB Reveals Disturbing Details Of American Airlines Flight 383's Terrifying Fire
 
01:06
According to a preliminary report released Friday by accident investigators, an engine disk that broke apart and forced an American Airlines jet to abort a takeoff in Chicago last week shows signs of fatigue cracking. The National Transportation Safety Board report said an examination shows evidence of an anomaly where the fatigue cracking begins. Metallurgical examinations of the disk are underway to determine what caused the cracking. CBS News reports disk pieces were spewed up to a half-mile away and a fierce fire enveloped the right side of the plane after the failure. American Airlines Flight 383 was traveling at 154 mph and was seconds from lifting off from O’Hare International Airport for Miami when pilots slammed the brakes. The fire was fed by a pool of jet fuel that formed under the wing when the plane came to a stop. All 161 passengers and nine crew on the flight safely evacuated. Twenty-one people suffered injuries, mainly from the evacuation. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ntsb-failed-american-airlines-engine-disk-chicago-ohare-fatigue-cracking/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Researchers say they have identified a protein -- tyrosine phosphatase receptor type Z, or PTPRZ, -- as a drug target for patients with glioblastoma. Glioblastoma has been classified by the World Health Organization as the highest grade glioma, a type of brain tumor that is difficult to treat with the median survival rate of patients with glioblastoma is 14 months. There has been a lack of effective treatment options has spurred researchers to look for other treatment options. The study also showed that the allosteric inhibitor of PTPRZ known as NAZ2329 suppressed stem cell-like properties in glioblastoma cells in cultures and tumor growth. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/07/18/Scientists-identify-drug-target-for-treatment-of-glioblastoma/6421500394895/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

On Tuesday, street artist Banksy confirmed on Instagram that he is responsible for a mysterious piece of artwork that appeared in South Wales that morning. Banksy placed the work on two walls of a garage owned by a local steelworker in the Taibach area of Port Talbot. According to CNN, the art, which appears to pay homage to the town's industrial past, depicts a child playing in what looks like snow, but is actually ash from a skip fire. In July, properties and cars were covered with black dust from the town's steelworks, which has been suggested as a potential inspiration for the work. https://www.cnn.com/style/article/banksy-port-talbot-wales-gbr-scli/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

In early July, Betsy Davis emailed her closest friends and relatives to invite them to a two-day party, telling them: "These circumstances are unlike any party you have attended before, requiring emotional stamina, centeredness and openness." And just one rule: No crying in front of her. The 41-year-old artist had ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. According to the Associated Press, Davis held the gathering to say goodbye before becoming one of the first Californians to take a lethal dose of drugs under the state's new doctor-assisted suicide law for the terminally ill. Davis spent months planning her exit, feeling empowered after spending the last three years losing control of her body bit by bit. The painter and performance artist could no longer stand, brush her teeth or scratch an itch. Her caretakers had to translate her slurred speech for others. Wearing a Japanese kimono she bought on a bucket-list trip she took after being diagnosed in 2013, she looked out at her last sunset and took the drugs at 6:45 p.m. with her caretaker, her doctor, her massage therapist and her sister by her side. Four hours later, she died. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-08-11-US--Woman's%20Final%20Party/id-21d9da4fc7f440b2ab9c01f3eb8c68a4 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

India to Sign Iran Port Deal, Ignores U.S. Warning

India will push ahead this week with plans to build a port in southeast Iran, two sources said, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi keen to develop trade ties with Central Asia and prepared to fend off U.S. pressure not to rush into any deals with Iran. India and Iran agreed in 2003 to develop a port at Chabahar on the Gulf of Oman, near Iran's border with Pakistan, but the venture has made little progress because of Western sanctions on Iran. Now, spurred on by Chinese President Xi Jinping's signing of energy and infrastructure agreements with Pakistan worth $46 billion, Modi wants to swiftly sign trade deals with Iran and other Gulf countries. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/OyDjpFbC4kQ/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Implanted Defibrillators Can Deliver Inappropriate Shocks, Driving Up Huge Bills
 
01:09
Implanted defibrillators can deliver a potentially lifesaving shock to a heart that's beating erratically. However, a new study shows that patients often wind up in the emergency room or the hospital needing medical procedures afterwards. According to UPI, that was the case whether the shock was needed or not--and in 38 percent of cases, the researchers added--it wasn't. Inappropriate shocks occur when the device mistakes an irregular heartbeat for ventricular arrhythmia, a condition that can cause the patient to die from cardiac arrest if not corrected. Cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating. Aside from pain, anxiety and discomfort for the patient, there is the issue of money. The researchers found the average cost of health care following a shock was nearly $5,600 for an appropriate shock--and nearly $4,500 for an inappropriate shock. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/02/15/Shocks-from-implanted-defibrillators-trigger-health-costs-of-their-own/4231487189250/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Pope 'Suffers' Little Sophie Cruz To The Popemobile

Five-year-old Sophie Cruz went to Washington with a letter for Pope Francis. Like thousands of people on Wednesday, she waited anxiously for the “people’s pope” to pass by on the National Mall. Francis had said he wanted to step out of the popemobile, spontaneously, and greet the American people. But the security threat was too great. As Francis passed, Sophie slipped past the barricade and started to walk toward the popemobile. The security guards stopped her in her tracks. But then the papal procession stopped, too; suddenly, the pope beckoned the little girl. A guard carried Sophie to Francis, and the “son of an immigrant family” – as the pope boldly called himself next to Barack Obama earlier in the morning – embraced the daughter of another immigrant family, in the middle of the street, in a moment instantly beamed across the world. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/23/pope-francis-sophie-cruz-letter-immigration http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Dazzling Supertide Transforms France's Mont Saint-Michel Into an Island, Delighting Thousands
 
01:01
A supertide has turned France’s famed Mont Saint-Michel into an island and then retreated out of sight, delighting thousands of visitors who came to see the rare phenomenon. The so-called “tide of the century” actually happens every 18 years. Although the tide rushes in and out along the whole northern French coast, it's especially dramatic at the UNESCO world heritage site, which is normally linked to the mainland only by a narrow causeway at high tide. The high tide, said to rise at the pace of a horse's gallop, turned the Mont briefly into an island Saturday, while the day's low tide allowed people to walk on the expansive flat seabed. Tidal specialist Nicolas Pouvreau told France 24 the surge was a few inches short of expectations. http://feeds.foxnews.com/~r/foxnews/world/~3/gP2Ubk0HhSE/ http://www.wochit.com

Scientists Use Stem Cell Therapy To Treat Leading Cause Of Blindness
 
00:51
2 (UPI) -- Researchers made advances toward creating stem cell-derived retinal cells used to treat a leading cause of blindness, scientists at the National Eye Institute said. NEI scientists found that tiny tube-like protrusions called primary cilia on a layer of cells in the back of the eye, known as the retinal pigment epithelium, are essential for the survival of the retina's light-sensing photoreceptors, according to a new study published in the journal Cell Reports. The discovery has advanced scientists' ability to use induced-pluripotent stem cells to create adult RPE for transplants to treat patients with geographic atrophy -- or dry age-related macular degeneration -- a leading cause of blindness in the United States. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2018/01/02/Scientists-advance-stem-cell-therapy-for-a-leading-cause-of-blindness/8571514929118/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Seaweed's Farming Revolution Caught In Net Of Red Tape
 
01:21
Seaweed cultivation in the U.S. is growing quickly, cresting on its promise as a sustainable, low-impact form of aquaculture that could help feed millions. Not only that, kelp also reduces the acid level of the ocean. But tough state rules surrounding commercial use of coastal resources are preventing many would-be entrepreneurs from diving into the market. Dr. Charles Yarish is an internationally recognized seaweed expert and marine sciences professor at the University of Connecticut in Stamford. He says fifteen farms currently have permits to commercially grow kelp in the Northeast, up from zero prior to 2008. But most would-be kelp farmers on the West Coast are in limbo, as states work to establish regulations. So far, only Washington has regulations in place, and just one research project under way. Even in states where regulations are in place, however, Yarish told NBC News the permitting process is "very onerous." Yarish says the approval process is deliberate because regulators are determined to avoid environmental damage - including excessive nutrient discharge, escapes of farmed animals and spread of disease - inflicted by some big aquaculture operations of decades past. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/red-tape-slows-bloom-seaweed-farming-s-green-revolution-n613526 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Here are five facts about the little-known Pangolin: 1. Pangolin’s scales are made of keratin, which is the same material found in a rhino's horn. A pangolin's tongue can be longer than its body. Pangolins don't have very good eyesight. Pangolins can live in trees or in the ground. Some species climb trees by using their claws to grip on to overhanging branches, while others use their claws to dig holes in the ground. Four of the species are found in Asia and the four others are found in Africa. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/37470783' http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Sorry, Princess! Thai Prince Strips Wife of Royal Name
 
00:47
Thailand's crown prince has revoked the royally-assigned family name of his wife, following the arrest of several of her relatives in a high-profile corruption case. News about the monarchy is heavily filtered by the palace, and under the lse-majest laws, the world's harshest, anything deemed an insult or a threat to the monarchy is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The office of Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn issued a statement on Friday ordering the Interior Ministry to strip the family of Princess Srirasmi of the royal-appointed surname Akharaphongpreecha. Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn is the first in line for the Thai throne. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/40f9239a/sc/11/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Cworld0Cthailands0Ecrown0Eprince0Estrips0Ewife0Eroyally0Eappointed0Efamily0Ename0En258351/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Scientists Create Better Way To Study Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria
 
00:55
For bacteria, practice makes perfect: Adjusting to ever higher levels of antibiotics prepares them to morph into super resistant strains, and scientists can now watch it happen. According to Science News, a new device — a huge petri dish coated with different concentrations of antibiotics — makes this normally hidden process visible. Microbiologist Michael Baym and colleagues report in the Sept. 9th issue of 'Science' that the setup gives a step-by-step picture of how garden-variety microbes become antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Baym and his colleagues think the experimental setup could be used to study microbial evolution under other environmental and spatial constraints, like the availability of particular nutrients. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/scientists-watch-bacteria-evolve-antibiotic-resistance http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Three Amazing Things To Do In Ottawa During The Frigid Winter
 
01:09
Ask any American to suggest things to do in Ottawa in the winter, and chances are you'll be met with a big, fat "Huh?" But for Canadians, “Skating the Rideau Canal” will most likely be the first response. Nevertheless, visitors to Ottawa are often disappointed to find that when it's too warm, the canal is only partially open--or even closed--during their winter visit. But Readers Digest reports the open-air, refrigerated Ottawa City Hall Sens Rink of Dreams is usually good to go. Admission is free, but be sure to bring your own skates. Dominion Arboretum is one of Ottawa’s lesser-known cold-weather tourist stops. It has prime slopes once the snow falls. Admission is free, and if you don’t have a toboggan--but you do have a few free nights and approximately $400--you can sign up to make your own at the Ottawa City Woodshop, located a short drive away in Little Italy. Now that’s a souvenir! Finally, the ever-popular Gatineau Park is 20 minutes from Ottawa proper, but you can use its free ski trails along the Ottawa River. http://www.readersdigest.ca/travel/canada/things-to-do-in-ottawa-winter/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Depression's Physical Source Discovered
 
01:02
In a new study, an international research team says they have identified the physical source of depression in the brain. The condition is one of the most common mental ailments in the world Investigators traced depression to the lateral orbitofrontal cortex. It's the part of the brain responsible for a non-reward mechanism. According to the research team, this is likely the reason people living with depression often feel a sense of loss, disappointment and low self-esteem. Researchers also linked depression to the medial orbitofrontal cortex and memory systems, in addition to the lateral orbitofrontal cortex. They say this explains why individuals with depression have difficulty accounting for happy memories. Comprised of investigators from the University of Warwick in England and Fudan University in China, the research team's findings were published in the journal Brain. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/10/18/Scientists-discover-physical-source-of-depression/2911476792291/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Ring Bought At London Garage Sale Could Be Worth $500K

According to the Huffington Post, while shopping at a garage sale at West Middlesex University Hospital in West London, an unidentified woman may have unwittingly scored a one-of-a-kind discount! The woman purchased a £10 (or approximately $13) diamond ring at the garage sale, and assumed it to be costume jewelry due to its heavy antique setting. But after a jeweler suggested that it may be real, she had it appraised, and was shocked to discover it in fact was a genuine 19th century cushion-cut diamond. Soon afterwards, Sotheby's of London, the revered auction house which specializes in the expensive and historic, confirmed the authenticity of the stone, estimating the 26.27-carat diamond at about $450,000, thanks to its near-flawless color and clarity. http://www.allure.com/story/garage-sale-ring-worth-half-million http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Potent Drug Fentanyl Poses 'Grave Threat' To Police K9s
 
01:16
An incident in Florida involving a police dog named Primus is causing concern for police departments and their K9 units. The dog overdosed after coming in contact with the drug Fentanyl during an October police raid, which has led to changes in the way Police approach narcotics investigations. Vets have begun training dozens of officers to recognize and respond to K-9 fentanyl exposure, and dog handlers will start carrying Narcan to treat suffering dogs. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that's 50 times stronger than heroin, and has killed hundreds of users since its availability spiked in 2013 - including legendary musician Prince. But now the DEA says it also poses a "grave threat" to first responders, both human and canine. According to Weiman, "If fentanyl is loose in an environment, it can spread out where a dog can absorb it through his pads. He could sniff it up through his jowls." And Weiman added "... fentanyl is so toxic, so strong that the very smallest amount of it — that you couldn't even see — could affect the dog. You wouldn't know they've even ingested it." http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/k-9-dogs-overdose-fentanyl-drug-killed-prince-n687611?cid=public-rss_20161126 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
