[ooyala code=”k3c20zbTr-VWMPTMdDnfNwns1GN6owMt” player_id=”6c21d43b06ee4460a29e40d9542c86ae”]RICHMOND, VA (WTVR) — If you have been experiencing itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing – you are not alone.

Allergy season is upon Central Virginia and experts say it may be the worst in years.

Some are even calling it the “Pollen Vortex” as a play on words to the phrase “Polar Vortex” from this past winter.

But the two phrases may be linked as some allergists attribute bad allergies to the long winter, which delayed trees that were supposed to bloom weeks ago from blossoming.

Now, those trees are blooming along with other plants that always bloom in Mid April.

On Monday, Richmond’s allergy rating measured a 11.3, that was one of the most severe on the East Coast. For perspective, allergy ratings only go up 12.

“It is going to get worse before it gets better,” Dr. Ananth Thyagarajan, an allergist tells CBS 6.

“We can’t…

Study Suggests Naps Could Be Hazardous To Your Health

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A lot of us take a nap during the day and feel better afterward, but could those naps be bad – or even kill us?

As CBS 2’s Dr. Max Gomez reported, a new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology said regular daytime napping may actually be detrimental to your health.

Back in the good old days, we were all supposed to nap. Toddlers didn’t always like it, but parents loved the break.

But once those toddlers grow to become high school and college students, naps are likely to become their favorite pastime. And that often goes for full-grown adults too.

“I love them,” said Hilaire Dolfeyn. “I’ve just had a nap in Central Park.”

“I think it’s great – it’s very refreshing, as long as it’s not too long,” said Zoya Kocur.

And even sleep experts agree that naps are probably good for you.

CBS Boston

HINGHAM (CBS) – For 71-year-old Joe D’Arrigo the Boston Marathon is a family legacy. “It’s family, it’s tradition and we will not be intimidated. We’ve been going to the marathon with my children for 37 years,” D’Arrigo said wearing his new marathon jacket in Hingham with his four daughters.

For Joe’s 70th birthday last year his dream was to have all four of his daughters cross the finish line together. “As we were approaching we were excited to finish together,” daughter Kerri Roberts said. When they got to mile 25 the bombs exploded and their dream came to an end.

This year all four of Joe’s daughters are back and ready to finish what they started. “For us standing on Mass Ave. last year we knew we were going to do it. There’s was no question about it. For us it’s family,” D’Arrigo said.

All four of Joe’s faithful bodyguards…

Women who took birth control pills for more than 3 years double the risk of glaucoma

Fellowship of the Minds

Birth control pills work by suppressing ovulation.

That is powerful stuff.

So why do we persist in thinking that a pill this powerful has no side effects?

birth control pill1

Emma Innes reports for the Daily Mail, Nov. 18, 2013, that a new study found that women who take oral contraceptives of whatever kind for more than three years have double the risk (2.05 times) of glaucoma, an eye condition that can lead to blindness.

Glaucoma occurs when the drainage tubes within the eyes become blocked, preventing fluid from draining properly and causing pressure to build up, damaging the optic nerve and nerves from the retina. The eye damage caused by glaucoma cannot be reversed but prompt treatment can halt the progression of the disease, which is why early diagnosis is important. The condition can be treated with eye drops, laser treatment or surgery.

The new study, conducted by researchers at the University…

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — Metro high school students want to feed everyone in need in eastern Jackson County for three days.

So on Saturday, they set up at the Hy-Vee in Independence. The students were up with the early birds this morning with one goal in mind.

“They’ve been working on this project for weeks,” said Doug Cowan of the Community Services League.

It’s actually a huge goal.

“We’ve been working with our schools and churches and local organizations trying to get some donations to help our goal,” Britany Copack, a student at Fort Osage High School.

In 12 hours the Youth Advisory Councils from 14 local high schools want to collect 10,000 non-perishable food items, which is enough to feed the hungry in Jackson County for three days.

“It’s called Global Youth Service Day and we participate every year,” said Amanda Knight, a student at Truman High…

CBS Philly

By Michelle Durham

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A local marriage and family therapist is hosting a six week seminar.

“Single and Searching” is designed to provide women with the support they need while they continue their quest to find the perfect partner.

Marriage and Family Therapist Pella Weisman says women need all the support they can get.

“It can take years of sorting through lots of potential partners, lots of dates to be able to find someone who is a really good match.”

Weisman says it’s important that women approach finding that partner the way they prepare for every other aspect of their lives, plan and make a selection according to your priorities.

“You really have to get clear on what those are and you have to have people in your life who will hold you to it and make sure that you don’t end up dating somebody who really is…
