Surprising Bacteria That Live on Your Money

ABC News - April 21, 2014 - 4:31pm
Germs are an unavoidable part of life. No matter how many times you sanitize, there’s always another door knob, public space, or bathroom you’re bound to come in contact with. But do you sanitize every time you slip a few bills into or out of your wallet? A recent study conducted by New York University’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology identified 3,000 types of bacteria on dollar bills from a Manhattan bank. Most of the bacteria were unsurprisingly microbes found on the skin, while others matched those found in mouths, and even some in vaginas.

    More Households Ditching Satellite and Cable TV

    ABC News - April 21, 2014 - 3:49pm
    Approximately 18.1 percent of all US households with a Netflix or Hulu account are considered to be “cord cutters” or Internet consumers that lack cable or satellite television, according to a report by Experian Marketing Services. This includes independent young adults who have never paid for TV services. Moreover, households where one of the residents owns a smartphone or tablet are at least 20 percent more likely to be a cord cutter. In fact, smartphones are the most commonly used device to watch downloaded or streaming video. The top mobile apps include YouTube, Netflix and CNN. Regardless of this rise in cord cutting, 94 percent of US adults will still watch some version of video content. Furthermore, one in six adults will watch at least 40 hours of TV a week, suggesting that live programming or video recordings on a DVR is still a major appeal.
