Now here's a study I can really sink my teeth into...or at least my liver.
Drinking reduces the risk of heart disease but the beneficial effects seem to work differently in men and women. They found that for men drinking daily seems to have the biggest positive effect on health while in women the amount of alcohol consumed may have more of an impact.

Every Adult, Child In Town May Become Millionaires

Here's another reason to live in the middle of nowhere. Wait did I say another? This is really the only reason I have heard of to date, so I guess the use of the word another is completely and totally baseless. Either way, here's one reason to live in the middle of nowhere:
Every Adult, Child In Town May Become Millionaires:

One of the biggest jackpots in Nevada may not be a casino.
Residents of Boulder City could vote on a plan to make every man, woman and child there a millionaire.
An initiative that could be on the November ballot calls for the city to sell 167 square miles of undeveloped open land in one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. The property is about 25 miles southeast of Las Vegas.
The ballot measure would require the city to distribute the billions to the 15,000 residents of Boulder City.
But it's too late to move there. Only people who lived in Boulder City as of March 31 would qualify.
However, residents shouldn't start counting their millions just yet. City officials said they intend to fight the forced land sale initiative in court.
They tell us this now? The had to wait to report about this until now? Although I could only imagine what kind of madhouse the area would have been had this news broke before March 31. In fact, real estate could have made a handy profit from a story done prior to the deadline.
