1.) General David Petraeus may have made a career of keeping secrets, but the ones that pertain to him just keep on leaking. The latest info on the affair between the former CIA Director and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, shows exactly how the twosome kept in touch via email. Apparently, Broadwell and Petraeus set up a joint email account that they never actually sent emails to. They would just save unsent messages to one another in a "Drafts" folder, and then the "recipient" could just log on and read what was written. This technique is so clever that it's been used by al-Qaeda, but didn't fool the FBI.
2.) With Thanksgiving one week away, there’s good news from the American Farm Bureau Federation. They’ve determined the cost of a classic holiday dinner - turkey, stuffing, cranberries, pumpkin pie and most of the basic trimmings - has increased just 28 cents this year, which is less than 1 percent over 2011. The average cost of dinner for 10 is $49.48, that’s just about 3 cents a person. The rise in price comes because of a slight increase in demand for turkey. Other foods that rose in price include coffee, onions, eggs, sugar, flour, evaporated milk, butter and brown and serve rolls.
3.) Football is under fire for the harm it does to players’ brains. Now the type of football played in the rest of the world is receiving the same treatment. A new study is showing that soccer players who repeatedly engage in heading – hitting the ball with their head – may suffer brain damage, even if they never get a concussion. Soccer players are at a much lower risk of concussions than athletes in other sports. But, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times, researchers looked at brain scans of 12 professional soccer players and found damage resembling that of patients suffering from mild traumatic brain injury.
