1.) If you’re feeling a little under the weather and you’re not certain if you should call off work, do your co-workers a favor and take a sick day. A new study done at the University of Arizona concludes that when you go to work sick, your germs infect everyone and everything, and quickly. An average worker touches, and infects half of the commonly touched surfaces at work in just 4 hours, and 70 percent of office surface by the end of the day. One person who goes to work sick increases the risk of co-workers getting sick by between 40 to 90 percent.
2.) It’s not actually on Elm Street, but the house that was used in the original 1984 movie “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is up for sale. The house number is the same as in the movie - 1428, but the home, in the Spaulding Square neighborhood in Hollywood, is actually on Genesee Avenue. The house was also featured in the 1985 sequel “A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge,” and the 1994 sequel “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. The asking price is only $2.1 million dollars.
3.) Next year, there may not be a concert at halftime of Super Bowl 48. That decision hasn’t been made, at least not yet, but has nothing to do with Beyonce’s performance at the game on Sunday. Next year’s Super Bowl will be played in New Jersey’s Meadowlands Stadium, and will be the first time the big game is played outside in a cold weather location. The New York Post is reporting that it may be too cold for a performance, and not just for the entertainers, but the crews that would have to quickly assemble a stage. A planning source is quoted as saying “there’s no plan, right now, of what to do in its place.” Super Bowl 48 will be played next Ground Hogs Day, February 2, 2014.
