handHard-to-read handwriting is causing problems in America’s workplaces, according to new research.

A new study examining handwriting usage in both professional and personal circumstances has found that one in two people have been told by others that their handwriting is hard to read.

The survey of 2,000 Americans, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Bic USA Inc., also found that the average respondent has experienced two instances in their working life where their handwriting led to a miscommunication or caused a real problem.

Even more interestingly, 45 percent of Americans struggle to read their own handwriting — and it’s taking its toll at work.

bubbleStress relief packs are being handed out at the Bristol University Student Union living room to relieve exam tension. The packets of bubble wrap come with instructions: ‘For immediate stress relief. Pop three capsules every 4-6 hours, or as needed’.

But some students have apparently become more stressed by the bubble wrap therapy and its potential to cause plastic waste. Bristol University Student Union was forced to issue a reassuring statement via the uni paper Epigram.

The bubble wrap was originally used to package new furniture for the new Student Union living room. A spokesman said: ‘We are aware that a number of students have raised concerns about the environmental impact of the bubble wrap. ‘Sustainability is important to us which is why the bubble wrap being offered is being reused – it was originally the packaging that various Living Room items arrived in.’

Company selling boxes of used tissues for $80

tissuesA Los Angeles start-up is offering to let people choose their own illness schedules by buying a box of used tissues for $80.

The company, Vaev, claims that ”using a tissue that carries a human sneeze is safer than needles or pills,” indicating exposure to the viruses on the tissues serve as an alternative to flu shots and similar vaccines.

“We’re not about chemicals or prescription drugs here at Vaev,” the company’s website states, inviting customers to “get sick on your terms.”

The company is unclear on whether the tissues are artificially treated or coated with the waste materials from an actual human sneeze.

Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist and professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, called the effectiveness of such a scheme into question.

“This is potentially hazardous if it does work, and I don’t think that it does,” Schaffner told Yahoo Lifestyle. “There are over 200 common cold viruses out there. Suppose you get infected with one — you can still get infected again because there are other cold viruses out there.”

Schaffner said he finds it unlikely that viruses would survive the journey from the company to the customer’s home.

“Save your $80,” Schaffner said. “This whole thing is a cockamamie idea.”

catAnimal rescuers in Wales said they are searching for the owner of a hamster that had a lucky escape when it was dragged home by a cat.

The RSPCA said personnel were sent to a Cardiff home Thursday when the owner called to report their cat had brought a fluffy white hamster into the house.

The Grangetown neighborhood resident was able to rescue the hamster from the feline and found the non-native rodent was uninjured.

“It must have been a huge shock for the cat’s owner to see their pet bring a hamster into the house!” RSPCA Inspector Gemma Black said. “Thankfully, the poor thing was unhurt by the ordeal, and is now safely in RSPCA care.

“We’d love to find the owner of this white fluffy hamster, with a gray face,” she said. “It seems very possible this hamster escaped from a nearby property in the Grangetown area and was then caught by the cat.”

BLIND MAN UTTERS THE UNEXPECTED AFTER SEEING HIS FAMILY FOR THE FIRST TIME, MOVES EVERYONE PRESENT TO TEARS

blindGene was completely blind by the time he had met Joy, who he would later go on to marry. Joy recalled the moment when she saw Gene for the first time, “I kept waving at him, and he just kept passing by.” Joy was unaware at the time of Gene’s disability and she assumed that he didn’t like her at all. All she could tell from his gestures was that he seemed interested but she would later find out the reason behind his odd behavior.

Joy and Gene were enrolled in the same course during their college education and they shared the same class as well. When the two met for the first time and exchanged a few words, it was the time when Joy came to know about Gene’s disability. It was only a matter of days and the two bonded really well. They eventually started dating each other and the lovebirds were having the time of the life. After scoring their graduation degrees, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level.

Gene and Joy were madly in love and the two were now ready to take a major step that would only strengthen their relationship. Their compatibility was unbeaten and they decided to get married. Despite all the struggles that Gene had to suffer with, he had found himself a woman who loved him unconditionally and she never let his disability act as a hindrance in their relationship.

One of the very first dream that a couple cherishes together is to bring forth a child. After a few years of their marriage, the couple was finally ready to add a member to their family. They later became proud parents of a little boy whom they named Lincoln. Life sure doesn’t sound that bad for Gene, but you’ ll be surprised to know that Gene had never seen his son or his wife by now and all he could see was just a blurry image. However, his life would take a 180 when he least expected it.

roadA Florida police department says an officer ran over two people who were lying in a dark roadway to watch Sunday night’s lunar eclipse.

In a statement to The Palm Beach Post , West Palm Beach Police said the man and the woman were treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said around 11:30 p.m., at the height of the eclipse, the officer was patrolling in a park and driving around 5 mph (8 kph) when his vehicle struck the pair.

The statement said the man and the woman live nearby. Because the park was “extremely dark,” officials believe they were trying to watch the eclipse when they were run over.

The officer was placed on administrative leave. Police said the man and the woman were both 24 years old; their names were not released.

FLORIDA MAN INJURES PENIS USING UNREGULATED “GOD SNAKE OIL” TO INCREASE SIZE

oilMichael Dumphrey, of St. Augustine Florida, admitted himself to an emergency room citing concerns regarding his genitalia. Upon further questioning, he revealed that the rash, the boils, and his strange discharges followed his use of the “God Snake Oil”, an unregulated product that promises to add inches overnight.

GSO (God Snake Oil) is controversial. Despite not being regulated by the FDA, Americans can purchase the product online or through associates of the GSO peer to peer marketing program. There are no scientific studies proving the effectiveness of GSO, but it continues to sell because of countless positive reviews.

Dumphrey was treated with antibiotics and a topical cream, and instructed to cease use of GSO. After two weeks, Dumphrey’s penis returned to normal. When asked what advice he would give other consumers considering the product, Mr. Dumphrey had this to say;

“Well, I can’t tell em not to. Despite the side effects, it was definitely effective. I can’t believe the increase in length and girth.”

Dumphrey is the first to report side effects, but the product is unregulated and could be dangerous.

Texas man stabs nephew’s pet with steak knife in retaliation for dog killing his chicken

knifePettit told police that he stabbed the dog because it had killed his chicken last year. He was arrested and charged with animal cruelty, a third-degree felony that could carry a 10-year jail sentence.

This wasn’t a crime of passion. The chicken died last year, and nobody cares that much about a chicken. There was some other motive. I’m guessing, the uncle is a right-wing hate-bumpkin who suspects the nephew of being a liberal and did what hate-bumpkins do.

Idaho woman has 50-pound tumor removed

tumorAn Idaho woman who thought she was gaining weight because of menopause discovered she actually had a 50-pound tumor that had been growing inside her for decades.

Boise television station KTVB reports Brenda Cridland of Meridian chalked up her weight gain to aging, but when her health started to quickly decline about eight months ago she decided to see a doctor.

That’s when a CAT scan revealed she had an enormous tumor that had displaced her organs and was cutting off the blood supply to her brain. Cridland said she underwent two-and-a-half hours of surgery to remove the mass, which luckily was benign.

Cridland says she lost 65 pounds in the process, and learned the tumor was caused by undiagnosed endometriosis. She says she ignored red flags about her health, and hopes her story will remind other women that they shouldn’t avoid seeing a doctor.

passengerRoyal Caribbean said a 27-year-old cruise passenger has been banned after he filmed himself jumping from the boat for an Instagram video.

Nick Naydev posted a video to Instagram showing how he jumped from the 11th deck of Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, while it was docked last week in the Bahamas.

“I was still drunk from the previous night,” Naydev explained. “When I woke up I just decided to jump.”

Naydev was picked up by a nearby small boat and brought back to the cruise liner, where crew members told him he and his companions were being kicked out. Naydev said he spoke to local police, but they told him charges were not being sought.

“This was stupid and reckless behavior, and he and his companions have been banned from ever sailing with us again,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement to USA Today. “We are exploring legal action.”
