    A convicted murderer currently behind bars for the rape and murder of a woman in 1980 will now stand trial for the death of his adopted daughter, 14, who he allegedly pushed down the stairs, dismembered and buried under a concrete slab back in 1989. Dennis Bowman, 71, from Michigan, appeared in Allegan County District Court Monday where a judge ruled there was 'ample evidence' to send him to trial over the slaying of Aundria Bowman, who he previously claimed had ran away from home. Bowman's wife Brenda Bowman testified that her husband confessed to their daughter's murder in a prison phone call last year where he told her Aundria's body had been 'right under your nose' in their backyard for the last three decades.  At the time of his confession, Bowman was behind bars for the rape and murder of 25-year-old Kathleen Doyle, the wife of a US Navy pilot, after new...
    EVER wondered why your nose starts running as soon as the temperature drops? For about 50 to 90 per cent of us the cold weather brings and endless need for tissues. 3 Your nose produces more mucous in cold weather to warm up the air your breatheCredit: Getty - Contributor The phenomenon is known as cold-inducted rhinitis, more commonly referred to as "skier's nose". And people with asthma, eczema and hay fever tend to experience it the worst, according to David King, a senior lecturer at the University of Queensland in Australia. He explained on The Conversation that low temperatures trigger and automatic reaction in our nose to produce more mucous to make the cold air we breath in warm. This stops it irritating the cells on the inside of our lungs. 3 The extra fluid and mucous humidifies the air you breathe in so it does not irritate the...
    Do you have a hooter to rival Pinocchio's? If so, you may be able to blame a newly-discovered gene that we share with mice which affects the pointiness of our noses.   Experts from the UK and France analysed the genomes and face shapes of 6,000 people from Latin America, finding 32 gene regions that influence facial features.  These coded for such properties as a person's nose, brow, jaw and lip shapes, with nine of the genetic loci identified being entirely new discoveries, the team said. One of these, 'VPS13B', which impacts nose size, has also been found in mice and other animals, indicating a shared genetic basis among distant mammal species. The impact of this gene is significant, but nevertheless small, with other genetic and environmental factors also impacting our nose sizes, the team explained. Do you have a hooter to rival Pinocchio's? If so, you may be able to...
    Three years ago, I started noticing an unpleasant smell that no one else could detect. A neurosurgeon suggested it was phantosmia and that it would go; other specialists have been unable to explain it. I am 53. Have you come across anything like this? Lindsay Bruce, via email. Your symptom, although uncommon, is certainly not unheard of. I agree with your neurosurgeon that it’s likely to be phantosmia (also known as an olfactory hallucination), a condition that causes you to smell a phantom scent. There are a number of potential causes, relating either to problems in the nose (known as peripheral phantosmia), or the brain and nervous system (central phantosmia). In most cases the problem will resolve itself. You mention that nose-related issues have been ruled out by your ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist, including chronic sinus infection and nasal polyps, which are painless and non-cancerous growths inside your...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Texas Senator Ted Cruz was not happy with President Joe Biden reentering the Paris Climate Accord. He says it does not benefit the people of Pittsburgh. It was similar to a statement by former President Donald Trump when he wanted to pull out of the agreement in 2017. “From Pittsburgh to President Biden, thank you for taking this first step on climate. Now let’s finish that journey by transitioning to 100 percent clean renewable energy,” PennEnironment Clean Air Advocate Zach Barber said over Zoom. The environmental advocacy group says this is a good first step in fighting climate change. Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto praised the president’s action. He said the agreement has a “special import for our city given our worldwide leadership in battling climate change.” Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald was critical of Senator Cruz’s statement. “Outrageous. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He’s...
    Wearing a face mask does not have to be an uncomfortable experience leading to breakouts, fogged glasses and sore ears.  Two experts have had their say on mask use, after it became mandatory for all residents of greater Sydney, including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Wollongong to wear them this week. The recent outbreaks in Sydney's Northern Beaches and some western suburbs led to the new restrictions - and people who refuse to wear a mask will be fined $200.

    (CNN) — We teach kids not to do it. It’s unsanitary. It’s just plain gross to see. Let’s be real, though. Most of us pick our noses — some 91% according to the only (small and old) study that seems to have ever been done on the subject, perhaps revealing how little even scientists want to think about it. Looking around the world, however, it’s not exactly uncommon to see someone with a finger up their nose, either discreetly or not so much, like Queen Elizabeth. Jokes aside, nose picking is deadly serious.

    Twice a day for a few hours my husband’s right ear ‘clicks’, affecting his hearing and his voice.  When he lies down, this seems to sort it. He was referred to the local hospital, but they couldn’t identify the problem. Can you help? A. Crowe, North Devon. For years I worked part-time in a nose and sinus research clinic, and it seems to me that your husband has the classic symptoms of eustachian tube dysfunction. The eustachian tube runs from the middle ear (which transmits sound to the brain) to the nasopharynx (the upper part of the throat at the back of the nose) and its main function is to equalise the air pressure in the middle ear with the pressure outside.  The tube opens every time we swallow or yawn, more than 80 times every hour. However, for various reasons the valve at the inner end of the tube can...
    Unlike sight or touch, your sense of smell can evoke memories in seconds, allowing you to recall experiences and emotions almost immediately following a familiar scent.

Rich with earthy, warm notes, this decadent room spray can easily turn any space into an inviting one....
    You may want a quiet life, but your body has different ideas, gurgling, clicking and buzzing all day long. Sometimes, these noises can be a sign of an underlying health issue. Here, Angela Epstein looks at the reasons behind your noisy body... GURGLING Any food we eat has to pass through eight metres of intestine. To encourage it on its way, the walls of the gastrointestinal tract squeeze. So that gurgling sound you hear after eating, known medically as borborygmus, is caused by the passage of food, liquid and gas through the intestines during the digestive process. ‘It is especially noisy at the junction where the small bowel joins the large bowel — known as the ileocecal valve,’ says Colin Rees, a professor of gastroenterology at Newcastle University. ‘This valve opens to allow digested food to pass through.’ Gurgling can also be heard when we are hungry. The brain sends...

Ad Microsoft Full screen 1/5 SLIDES © Provided by Best Life This Is How to Know If Your Stuffy Nose Could Be COVID Everyone gets the occasional stuffy or runny nose. And there are plenty of reasons that's the case—from a sinus infection to a deviated septum to a common cold. Even stress can cause congestion. But one of the most likely causes of the annoying nasal symptom is seasonal allergies. However, given that congestion in your nose and sinuses can also be a symptom of COVID-19—albeit a fairly rare one, according to allergist Sara Narayan, MD—you don't want to brush off the symptom or fail to take...
    Your doctor might recommend using a neti pot if you have nasal congestion. linavita/Shutterstock To use a neti pot safely, make sure you're filling it with distilled or properly sterilized water to avoid possible infection. After filling the neti pot, tilt your head sideways and pour the liquid into one nostril and wait for it to exit through the other nostril, ideally carrying any excess mucous with it. Anyone can use a neti pot for nasal congestion from illnesses like the common cold, but it's especially effective for people with chronic nasal problems. This article was reviewed by Graham Snyder, MD, MS, who is the medical director for the Infection Prevention and Hospital Epidemiology branch at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. This story is part of Insider's guide for Treating the Common Cold. A neti pot is a series of devices that you use to flush mucus...
    EVERY time a UK celeb criticised the policy of the United States and our Republican president, my reaction was always the same: “Don’t they have enough problems in their own nation to solve without sticking their noses in our business?” Now, I direct that same question – and admonishment – at U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden. 8Joe Biden, the Democratic Presidential Nominee, controversially commented on Brexit negotiationsCredit: AP:Associated Press In a somewhat bizarre, transparent, and convoluted attempt to pander to Irish-American votes, Biden decided to weigh-in on Brexit in relation to the contentious negotiations between Britain and the European Union regarding Northern Ireland.  Biden has now made it clear that he is siding with the EU - and that if Britain does not surrender to the demands of the EU with regard to Northern Ireland, he will punish Britain by blocking an American-British trade deal. “Bullying,” “blackmail,” and “extortion” being but...

    Washing your nose and mouth with an iodine solution could prevent you from being infected with the novel coronavirus, a new study suggests. In a laboratory, researchers poured solutions of the antiseptic povidone-iodine (PVP-I) at three different concentrations on a sample of the virus. They found that even a concentration of just 0.5 percent completely inactivated SARS-CoV-2 in as little as 15 seconds. The team, from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, says the rinses could prevent person-to-person spread of the virus and prevent a severe cases by decreasing the amount of virus that travels to the lungs.   A new study from the University of Connecticut found that, after 15 seconds, a solution of iodine completely inactivated a sample of coronavirus, even at the lowest concentration (file image) It is well-known that the nose contains high levels of the receptor ACE-2, which the virus uses to enter and...
    HAVING symptoms of a cold is not a sign your child has coronavirus, a top medic has claimed.

    Late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Trevor Noah, and Seth Meyers roasted President Donald Trump for holding a largely maskless indoor rally in Nevada over the weekend — Fallon joking that “the next long-term residency in Las Vegas will be the coronavirus.” Fallon pointed out that this was Trump’s for entirely indoor event in three months, joking that it was attended by people who watched the Tulsa rally and thought, ‘That, but less safe.’” “You know how bad you have to mess up to be known as the guy who made a bad decision in Vegas?” Fallon quipped. “Even old ladies smoking at the slot machines were like, ‘I wouldn’t set foot in there.’” The host also pointed out that the event went against Nevada’s 50-person limit on indoor gatherings, noting that even a state that allows prostitution and gambling was against the Trump’s rally. “The Trump campaign was like, ‘Honestly, after Tulsa, we didn’t think 50...
    The fall season brings new irritating allergies for many people. Carlos G.

    The nose is the organ in charge of smell and the entrance to the respiratory system. According to a study carried out at the Rockefeller University (United States) thanks to her we are able to distinguish over a billion different smells. Being so visible on our face —a nose changes practically our entire physiognomy— since ancient times it has been sought to perfect it. In fact, according to some historical documents, Egyptian doctors already performed interventions on the nose in 3000 BC These operations were used to rebuild the nose after a war. On the other hand, the nose is the only organ that can get tired when you perceive an unpleasant smell, because the body detects it and we are aware of it. However, after a while the brain can get used to it, something that does not happen with other senses of our...
    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Researchers are issuing a new warning about why wearing your mask below your nose could put you and those nearby at risk for COVID-19.Previous studies have showing the incredible amount of particles that can come out of our mouths just from speaking but now, researchers say when it comes to getting infected, they have their eye on the nose.Certain masks may be worse than no mask at all, preliminary Duke study findsEMBED More News Videos By now we all know that N-95 masks are better than surgical masks which are better than cloth masks which are better than a scarf or bandana.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — How are you wearing your mask? Does it cover just your mouth, or both your mouth and nose? New research from Johns Hopkins Medicine suggests the nose is a key entry point for the coronavirus, and that’s why it’s important for people to also cover their noses. “Making sure that you are wearing the mask properly, that you are not breathing air out of your nose and into the world that might infect another person,” said Dr. Andrew Lane with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The team at Johns Hopkins believes COVID-19 is latching on to certain cells in the nose at an alarming rate — up to 700 times more than in other cells.

    Since ancient times, the idea exists in the popular imagination that the size of the nose is related to that of the penis. Big noses like Julius Caesar’s have been associated with unbridled sexualities. Even in modern times, Freud, for example, spoke of the cure of neuroses of sexual origin by cauterizing the nose. Although science today does not endorse any of these ideas, the belief survives. The truth is that various studies have shown that the nose directly influences people’s sexuality, from the choice of a partner to the ability to detect emotions; even to the point that the sense of smell can determine the number of sexual encounters. Research published in the journal Biological Psychology suggests that men with a worse sense of smell also have fewer carnal encounters. According to the psychologists of the University of Dresden authors of the study, it is because their bad nose...

    (CNN)Living with a plugged nose isn't fun, but James Nestor was ready. Plus, it was for science. While researching his recent book, "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art," Nestor let Stanford University scientists block his nostrils with silicone and surgical tape to measure the impacts of breathing through his mouth for 10 days. "We knew it wasn't going to be good, because there's a very firm scientific foundation showing all the deleterious effects of mouth breathing, from periodontal disease to metabolic disorders," Nestor said. The surprise was just how quickly the experiment affected him.Nestor's blood pressure rose 13 points, edging the writer into stage one hypertension. Measurements of heart rate variability showed his body was in a state of stress. His pulse went up, and he stumbled around in a mental fog. He also snored for hours each night, developing obstructive sleep apnea. His blood oxygen levels dropped....

    QUESTION: I get post-nasal drip. I was told it might be caused by acid reflux, but I don't have the classic symptoms. What else could be causing it? Stephen Pearson, by email. ANSWER: Post-nasal drip (clinically, known as chronic rhinitis) is where mucus accumulates in the nose and drips down the throat, causing a sensation of excess fluid. Other symptoms include nasal discharge, a blocked or stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing and, in some instances, loss of smell. While acid reflux (where stomach acid rises up the oesophagus) can cause this, I think there is another, much more common, explanation here: in 90 per cent of cases, the cause is allergy.  Post-nasal drip is where mucus accumulates in the nose and drips down the throat, causing a sensation of excess fluid.

    Something I’ve noticed about masks is that having them fit snugly on your face can be a little tricky. Your nose can just push the mask up, leaving the mask ill-fitting and you’ll find yourself breathing out of the sides of the mask, which is pretty annoying. Thankfully, some genius out there invented the nose wire, which wraps around your nose to both give the mask added security on your face and to help it fit more snugly. If you’re looking for a mask with a nosewire, we have some of our favorite picks to make your search a little easier.  Vida Mask Set: These Vida masks come in a pack of four.

    Many people are faithfully wearing masks in order to prevent others from being infected with COVID-19. But while mask-wearing is important for public health, it’s also a big adjustment for a lot of Americans who are adapting to a new garment and sweaty faces. Those of us with glasses have to deal with another problem: fogged-up lenses. When you wear a mask and your warm breath hits the relatively cool surface of your glasses, the result will be fog. This can be really irritating, especially if you walk from a hot street into an air-conditioned store, suddenly can’t see, and don’t want to handle your glasses without washing your hands first. There are a number of strategies that have been suggested to keep your glasses, and your vision, clear when you’re wearing a mask.

    By Louis J. Ignarro, The Conversation Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. It’s not just something you do in yoga class—breathing this way actually provides a powerful medical benefit that can help the body fight viral infections. The reason is that your nasal cavities produce the molecule nitric oxide, which chemists abbreviate to NO, that increases blood flow through the lungs and boosts oxygen levels in the blood. Breathing in through the nose delivers NO directly into the lungs, where it helps fight coronavirus infection by blocking the replication of the coronavirus in the lungs. But many people who exercise or engage in yoga also receive the benefits of inhaling through the nose instead of the mouth. The higher oxygen saturation of the blood can make one feel more refreshed and provides greater endurance. I am one of three pharmacologists who won the Nobel Prize in 1998...

    New York — Avoid certain practices when bleeding from the nose, such as throwing your head back There are many causes that can generate nasal bleeding. Most of the time it is due to a strong blow to the area or some specific condition. In order to treat nosebleeds properly, it is important to know a little more about them. That is why we will delve a bit into the subject here. How to stop nosebleeds According to an article in the Cigna portal, when a nosebleed arises, you shouldn’t throw your head back. This is one of the first things that is done, and so you need to remember it over and over again. Instead, you should sit up straight and tilt your head forward slightly. With your thumb and index finger, you should press on the soft part of the nose, to prevent blood from passing. If...
    Wearing a mask that covers both your mouth and nose is crucial to protecting yourself (and others) from coronavirus, because the nostrils are particularly vulnerable to infection, new research shows.  Although its coronavirus's devastating effects on the lungs that land patients in the ICU, University of North Carolina (UNC) scientists found that the virus typically first lodges itself in the tissue inside the nose and travels down the respiratory tract from there.  The virus does not establish itself or make copies of itself as well in the throat, but can make its way from the nose into the lungs of some people at night while they sleep.  With strong evidence that the nose is coronavirus's first target and best breeding ground, the scientists say that wearing a mask is key - and rinsing out your nostrils may help reduce the risk that the virus will reach the lungs and cause...
    A scientist with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created a video that shows the differences in airflow when a person wears a face mask and when they do not, demonstrating how much air is expelled from a person’s nose and mouth in each instance. The video aims to demonstrate how wearing a face covering can help slow the spread of infectious diseases such as the novel coronavirus. Matt Staymates, a fluid dynamicist and mechanical engineer at the NIST, typically uses advanced fluid flow visualization tools when helping to detect “drugs and explosives through the flow of fluids that are usually invisible,” he wrote in a blog post. RESEARCHERS URGE 'WIDESPREAD' WEARING OF FACE MASKS TO SLOW CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC “When I’m in the laboratory, I use a number of advanced fluid flow visualization tools to help better understand and improve our ability to detect illicit drugs and explosives on...
