They say when Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, it means six more weeks of winter.

When Dixville Notch votes just after midnight Tuesday, will it be six more weeks (or more) of Trump?

Its 100 percent turnout is quite impressive, if you don't consider that it hit its 38-vote peak in 1988, according to the Boston Globe. (The Globe also reported that only 10 will vote in the town this year.)

The sighs we notice usually accompany emotions like relief or discontent. But our brains are programmed to make us heave an unconscious sigh every five minutes or so — no matter how we feel.

In 2013, during routine testing of bacterial DNA floating around in the blood samples of people suspected of having Lyme disease, researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., realized they were looking at something different.

If you watched Sunday's Super Bowl, how did you get it? Over cable? Rabbit ears? (Yes, those still work.) Or did you stream it online?

Do you know any global health stories that should be getting coverage — but are overlooked by the media?
