Your 5-mile run feels harder in the summer because it is. "For every degree your internal temperature rises on a scorching day, your heart rate increases by about 10 beats per minute," says Cedric X. Bryant, Ph.D., chief science officer for the American Council on Exercise. A jog now feels more like a sprint as your body desperately produces more sweat in an attempt to cool you off. Thankfully, these products are basically on-the-go air-conditioning. | By Jaclyn Emerick

    • Dear Abby: Family thinks ill husband is faking it

      DEAR ABBY: My husband has been sick and unable to work for several years due to a debilitating illness. He has been home taking care of the kids while I have been working full time. We have lost everything because of the financial burden of his illness. I am very grateful to my parents for helping us financially during this tough time. Unfortunately, I believe some of my family think my husband is faking his illness. This is hurtful since they have known him for a long time (we’ve been married 12 years). My sister recently asked him in a rather nasty way why he doesn’t just go get a job, and I’m beginning to think that my parents share her sentiment. He already feels guilty and worthless for

    • Gordon Ramsay Reveals the 1 Place You Should Never Eat

      Sure, Gordon Ramsay has high standards, but is there really anything he would never eat? Turns out it's more of a place where he would never eat rather than one specific food — and that's on a plane. In an interview with Refinery29, Gordon revealed his feelings about airplane food and why those feelings might be justified. "There's no f*cking way I eat on planes," he said. "I worked for airlines for 10 years, so I know where this food's been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board." Yikes. The man has a point — there's no denying that airplane food is not the best. So what's a traveler to do to avoid midflight hunger, according to the world-renowned chef? If you're like

    • Dwyane Wade's Baby Momma, To Join Cast Of Basketball Wives LA

      I can still remember the office conversations we had when the world learned that Dwyane Wade had fathered a child with another woman while he and Gabrielle Union were on a break. Dwyane held a press conference calling his son a blessing. Wade’s son Xavier was quickly dubbed the “break baby,” Union was questioned by paparazzi in airports and many of us wondered what we would do in a similar situation. Well, Gabby and Dwyane worked it out, got married and seem to be enjoying their marriage. Afterward, unless you were following Aja Metoyer, Xavier’s mother, we didn’t hear too much more about the little boy. But all of that might be changing now that Xavier’s mother is going to be joining the cast

    • This Mom Saved Her Kids From Being Abducted With One Important Lesson

      When Jodie Norton, the Utah-based blogger behind Time Well Spent, went to the emergency room last year, she got the scare of her life. Only, the scare wasn't related to her health. According to Norton, while she was in the ER, two of her kids were almost abducted. Thankfully, they remembered the "Tricky People" lesson their mom had taught them and stayed safe. Recently, the story has resurfaced, and the message is as timeless as ever. It all started when Norton was in the shower one morning and started experiencing unbearable pain, which turned out to be a ruptured ovarian cyst. Somehow, she got dressed, loaded her four kids into the car, and drove to the hospital five minutes away (she says
