Your winter clothes could be making you sick
While folks likely wash their clothes weekly, there’s a good chance they're probably not treating their winter outwear with the same care and it could be making them sick. Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona, says folks should wash their coats, gloves and such once a week in order to get rid of viruses and bacteria that could build up and get them sick. For example, gloves are constantly in contact with germs, and if you touch your face it could lead to sickness, while coats are also bad because people don’t usually wash them, as are boots, which could be traipsing fecal matter and other gross stuff into your home. Experts say you don’t have to worry as much about your scarves, because you’re basically breathing in your own germs, and your hats aren’t too bad either, unless you have acne, which can cause bacteria build up and cause breakouts.

TOM BRADY’S WIFE WANTS HIM TO RETIRE
Despite the fact that Tom Brady is headed toward another Super Bowl, his wife, Gisele Bundchen, seems to want him to retire.
While on vacation during the offseason, Gisele reportedly told Tom’s friend Jay Feely to try to convince Tom, who is 40 years old, to get out of the game.
That sneaky move backfired, though, because Jay instead told Tom to keep playing as long as he can.
No matter what happens, the guy is set to play in his eighth Super Bowl. But from the sound of things, there's pressure on him to make it one of his last. (Business Insider)
