4 Things Finger Length Can Reveal About You

  4 Things Finger Length Can Reveal About You This is what your finger length ratio, the difference between your index finger and ring finger, reveals about your health and behavior.The ratio length between our index finger and ring finger has been known to reveal everything from our health to behavior to physiology. Researchers have specified the smaller the 2D:4D ratio (2D = index finger; 4D = ring finger) — the longer our ring finger is compared to our index — the more testosterone we absorb in the womb. High levels of testosterone exposure is known to slow the growth of our index fingers, which can leave us with a greater difference in digit ratio between our index and ring fingers.

sleepy tired bored studying woman library © Provided by Business Insider sleepy tired bored studying woman library Adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is far more common than previously thought, according to a recent study published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry — though it's often undiagnosed.

There's been a recent rise in the number of adults diagnosed with ADHD, which was previously considered extremely rare. More recently, researchers have estimated that between 2 and 5% of the population struggles with the condition. And the new study suggests adult ADHD may be even more common than that.

Researchers attribute the rising rates at least in part to the fact that we weren't doing a great job of detecting ADHD in adults before now.

20 Year-Old Stroke Survivor Shares the Warning Signs

  20 Year-Old Stroke Survivor Shares the Warning Signs One we think about strokes, we usually think that it's a possibility later in life. A healthy college student had her first stroke at age 20 and shares the warning signs.When her first stroke hit her, she tells The Doctors that she felt “dizzy and disoriented” while sitting in class and she thought she might have just been tired. A fellow classmate turned to her and said, “I think you just had a seizure,” but Sarah didn’t believe that was even a possibility. When she tried to leave class she lost feeling on the right side of her body, developed an intense migraine and facial drooping.

Attention - deficit hyperactivity disorder , or ADHD , is not just a problem for kids—the symptoms can persist well into adulthood . How often do you have difficulty concentrating on what people say to you , even when they are speaking to you directly?

Adult ADHD is surprisingly common – with recent University of Barcelona research suggesting that up to two-thirds of young ADHD sufferers find that their disorder persists into adulthod. New research from JAMA psychiatry came up with a list of questions to help doctors diagnose adult ADHD , IFLScience.

In order to better diagnose cases, the researchers behind the study developed a new list of questions to help doctors screen for adult ADHD. The questions are designed based on the most recent definition of the condition as it's described in the most recent version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), sometimes referred to as psychiatry's "Bible."

Here are the questions that researchers say can reliably and easily find adult ADHD cases:

1. How often do you have difficulty concentrating on what people say to you, even when they are speaking to you directly?

2. How often do you leave your seat in meetings or other situations in which you are expected to remain seated?

3. How often do you have difficulty unwinding and relaxing when you have time to yourself?

Disney World Is Making Some Major Security Changes

  Disney World Is Making Some Major Security Changes Planning a trip to the happiest place on Earth? Read this first.Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom will soon be moving security checks to outside of the park's Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), WFTV Channel 9 reports. Instead of going through security at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom park, guests will now go through metal detectors and bag checks as soon as they exit the tram from the parking lot, before boarding a ferry or monorail. Security barricades and tents near the TTC have already been put into place, and the new security measures will be put into effect on April 3, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Adult ADHD is surprisingly common – with recent University of Barcelona research suggesting that up to two-thirds of young ADHD sufferers find that their disorder persists into adulthod. New research from JAMA psychiatry came up with a list of questions to help doctors diagnose adult ADHD , IFLScience.

Six simple questions can reliably identify adults with attention - deficit / hyperactivity disorder , according to a World Health Organization advisory group working with two additional psychiatrists. The questions are : How often do you have difficulty concentrating on what people say to you , even when

4. When you're in a conversation, how often do you find yourself finishing the sentences of the people you are talking to before they can finish them themselves?

5. How often do you put things off until the last minute?

6. How often do you depend on others to keep your life in order and attend to details?

Each question can be answered with "never, rarely, sometimes, often, and very often." Answers can be converted to a numerical score that researchers use to screen for ADHD (Not all questions have the same value. A physician should be the one to make a diagnosis and to decide whether further evaluation or medication is needed).

In the process of developing and testing the scale, the authors say that they estimated that 8.2% of adults are affected by adult ADHD. They calculated this by having several clinical interviewers assess respondents' answers to several health surveys using the DSM-5 definition of ADHD.

Baristas Reveal How They Really Feel When You Don't Tip for Coffee

  Baristas Reveal How They Really Feel When You Don't Tip for Coffee At a time when the very idea of tipping has been brought into question, the debate surrounding how much you should tip at coffee shops remains confusing. Should tipping for a two-dollar drip coffee be the norm, or is that extra dollar only called for when you've ordered something complicated, like an extra-foam soy chai latte with sugar-free hazelnut syrup? The questions don't stop there. Is dropping your fifty-cent change into the tip bucket basically an insult? And: Are baristas mad when you don't tip at all? We spoke to a handful of current and former baristas about how they feel about tipping - and whether they notice when you don't tip. (They do.) The general consensus seemed to be that while baristas almost always make a mental note of whether you tipped or didn't, they're only really bothered by a lack of tip when the order is complicated, and they had to go above and beyond. "I always notice," a barista in an East Williamsburg café told me. "I'm not usually irritated unless the order is really big, like five or six drinks, and the person doesn't tip me anything. I just put all this effort into this with this huge line of people, and there was nothing extra that I got out of it." She added that tips are appreciated for small orders, too. "If someone gets just a small coffee, I definitely still notice when they don't tip," she said. "When people tip I'll go out of my way to do stuff for them.

The new questionnaire isn't a pure measure of ADHD symptoms, according to a commentary published alongside the study in JAMA Psychiatry. Two of the questions have more to do with procrastination and the ability to keep your life in order on your own, which aren't official ADHD traits. But the authors of the study say these traits help predict the condition in adults better than some of the defined symptoms of ADHD.

The commentary authors say that these findings help reflect the fact that we still base the criteria for ADHD largely on what we expect to see in children, which means the current definition may still be inadequate for identifying adult ADHD. That could help explain why the researchers think there are still a significant number of people out there with the condition that have yet to be diagnosed.
