- Are printers hazardous to you health? A study says it is while HP denies. Per article, "Office printer could be posing as much danger to the lungs as a drag on a cigarette, according to air quality tests by Australian scientists.

- According to Forbes, today's riskiest housing markets are: Miami, Orlando, Sacramento and San Francisco.

- What's the best time of the day to do stuff? This article IDs them. Who knew that 4 p.m. is the best time of the day to clean the house? It's a handy guide for many of us who've always thought it's at quarter-to-never.

- Finally, here's a unique way to clean up dirty cops: Offending Thai cops will have to wear Hello Kitty armbands. "Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late — among other misdemeanors — will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day." Meow!
