A Visit To A Beautiful College Campus In Bloomington
Chattanoogan.com, July 5 -- Do you like to visit college campuses and judge the beauty of the buildings and landscaping? I certainly do, and I was very impressed with what I saw during a recent visit to Indiana University in the Southern Indiana town of Bloomington. In fact, all at the same time I thought I was taking a walk in the woods, visiting a big city's outdoor botanical garden, and getting an architectural tour on creative ways to use Indiana limestone and marble. Full story.

Writing in the British Medical Journal, the researchers challenged, among such notions, the belief that people should drink at least eight glasses of water daily. "When we examined this belief, we found that there is no medical evidence to suggest that you need that much water," said co-author Rachel Vreeman, MD. Full story.

Jconline.com, July 5 -- Patrick Hagmaier of West Lafayette is not ashamed to admit that physical attractiveness is what typically draws him to a woman, especially if she's a little shorter, with long brown hair and brown eyes. Also, Hagmaier tends to make his decision sans the influence of friends, family and strangers. Even if a woman is garnering the interest of other males, it doesn't make her more attractive to him. Full story.
