Bonehead Of The Day:

A El Paso man was caught trying to crack into a stolen safe in the backyard of a police officer's house.

The 17-year-old broke into a church and stole a safe. He walked about a block to a random yard and tried to break into the safe using a screwdriver.

He couldn't get in so he left the safe and came back the next morning to give it another go.

It happened to be the home of an off-duty cop who was home this time and came outside and confronted the teen.

He was arrested and tossed in jail on $50,000 bail.

Pintrest & Facebook May Be Making You Fat

Researchers (at the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) found that people who spent two hours using a device backlit with LED display - such as an iPhone or iPad - had a corresponding dip in melatonin levels. Melatonin is the chemical that prepares your body for sleep, so if your melatonin levels are decreasing, you're going to have a harder time falling asleep at night.

AND..... There's a link between sleep loss and weight gain. When you're awake for longer periods of time, you've got more time to eat and late night snacking can be dangerous.

This research is also true for texting, playing games, or using your web browser late at night.

Whether you're pinning and updating from bed, near bed, or on the couch for two hours before you go to sleep, you're at risk of losing sleep and gaining weight. Limit the amount of time you spend on your cell phone before bed, and put it down a few hours before you doze off.

Tip:  Don't Wear Flip Flops Every Day

Experts are warning people to avoid wearing flip-flops every day, even though they may be the coolest options during the hot summer days.

One doctor explained, "Just due to that small piece of rubber trying to support your foot. Not getting much arch support. So you get that wear and tear on your main tendons, your main ligaments."

He added, "And that's where the pain begins to happen, things like Achilles tendonitis, some flat-foot problems, some plantar fasciitis."

The doctors say that flip-flops are fine for quick errands, but not long walks, and definitely not for playing sports.
