This Is The Time Of Day We're More Likely To Cheat
We've all been there: We arrive at the office at 9 a.m., proceed to eat a nice healthy breakfast, bang out some stellar work, and are totally pleasant to our colleagues. Then, 3 p.m. hits, and we're snappy, unfocused, and hitting the vending machine hard.
While this scenario might seem more like your daily dossier than anything particularly scientific, it actually is: New research has suggested mornings really are when we're at our absolute best, and by the afternoon — worn out from our earlier attempts at being angelic — we're more likely to lie, cheat, or indulge in lazy behavior, reported NBC.

HIGH SCHOOLS CANCELLING DANCES OVER FEARS KIDS WILL TWERK AND GRIND
Miley Cyrus can't be blamed for teens' raging hormones, but she can be blamed for teaching them to twerk. One high school in Vermont is so scared that kids will twerk and grind at school events that it's just cancelled them all instead. The principal of that school wrote on his blog that previous attempts to ban the inappropriate dance moves had been futile, and this was a last resort. Many schools have issued zero-tolerance "twerking contracts," written agreements signed by students saying they will not engage in the raunchy dance or anything like it. Yale University professor of Psychology, Dr. Alan Kazdin warns the bans may actually make the dance moves seem more attractive to teens and says, "Twerking is not the issue; it's a symptom of a larger cultural problem that sexualizes young women."

SCIENTIST CREATING NON-ALCOHOLIC BEER THAT STILL GETS YOU DRUNK
Want to have a few drinks after work, but are worried about feeling hung over the next day? Well, scientists are developing alcohol substitutes, much like the idea of e-cigarettes that have all the benefits of real alcohol without damaging our livers, hearts and brains. Alcohol targets the Gaba Function of the brain, which keeps the brain calm, and scientists are developing substances that have the same effects on the region without the harmful side effects. In his post on theguardian.com, researcher David Nutt claims that he has tested the substances on himself with much success and that the substances would be addiction-free and help curb alcohol fueled aggression. And the best part? There is an antidote to help drinkers sober up in minutes.
