Tylenol May Help Ease The Pain Of Hurt Feelings

Posted By Staff

TylenolNobody likes the feeling of being left out, and when it happens, we tend to describe these experiences with the same words we use to talk about the physical pain of, say, a toothache.

“People say, ‘Oh, that hurts,’ ” says Nathan DeWall, a professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky.

DeWall and his colleagues were curious about the crossover between physical pain and emotional pain, so they began a series of experiments several years back.

In one study, they found that acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol) seemed to reduce the sting of rejection that people experienced after they were excluded from a virtual ball-tossing game.  More

rockDrivers can’t seem to stop hitting a giant rock in a suburban parking lot, despite it being an inanimate object surrounded by yellow-painted curbs.

“I don’t know how you miss this big rock or how you cut the curb so tight you end up jacked up on the rock,” said Brangwyn Jones, who lives in the northwest community of Sage Hill.

“I’m trying to wrap my mind around it, as are many of the community members.”

After several collisions, the Sage Hill Rock — as it has become known among area residents — is now set to be removed from a retail shopping complex that is still being developed in the relatively new community.   More

deafTAMPA, Florida – Tampa police say a career criminal posing as an American Sign Language interpreter last week during a hastily-called news conference announcing an arrest in the Seminole Heights serial shooting case left many deaf viewers confused by her “gibberish.”

Tampa police spokesman Steve Hegarty says a lack of due diligence allowed sign language poser Derlyn Roberts to be a part of the news conference.

Hegarty says Roberts presented herself as an interpreter for the deaf just before the news conference. In that hectic moment, he says he failed to ask the right questions to determine whether she was from Purple Communications, which the city typically hires for sign language duties.

Rachelle Settambrino, who teaches sign language at the University of South Florida, says interpreter Roberts signed the following: “Fifty-one hours ago, zero 12 22 (indecipherable) murder three minutes in 14 weeks ago in old (indecipherable) murder four five 55,000 plea 10 arrest murder bush (indecipherable) three age 24.”  More
