It's been a mild flu season so far in the Granite State. The Department of Health and Human Services says there are only pockets of outbreaks and no reported flu related deaths in the state. It's the N1H1 virus this year, so it matches the vaccine.
It's a stark contrast to last year when the H3N2 flu virus was widespread and not a good vaccine match.
At roughly this same time last year there had been four confirmed flu related deaths in New Hampshire.
Even though this year is mild, it's still recommended to get your flu shot.
Research warns that sleep deprivation - meaning getting only four or five hours of sleep a night may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Now a new study from the University of Colorado, Boulder suggests that "catch-up" sleep on the weekends might reverse that risk -- at least in the short-term.
Researchers do warn that follow-up studies are needed to see if that extra sleep on the weekends helps when the sleep deprivation is long-term.
The study was published in the journal Diabetes Care.
A new study by Travelmath found 3-star hotels are cleaner than 4- and 5-star hotels.
Researchers tested nine different hotels. They found the average room is dirtier than an airplane, your home and your kids’ school.
The dirtiest surfaces were the bathroom counter, followed by the remote control, desk and phone. Bathroom counters in 4-star hotels where the nastiest. the remote controls and the desks were also dirtier in 4 and 5-star hotels than they were in 3-star locations, so you might consider saving a little money.
