1.) The controversial online dating site that allows only attractive people to join is expanding its service for employers. BeautifulPeople.com is launching a recruitment feature today for employers wanting to hire "good-looking staff." The free service will give individuals and companies access to its 750,000 member base of "attractive" people. Only those members who are voted beautiful by others on the site are allowed to stick around. Employers will have a dedicated business profile and be able to pursue other members who are looking for a job. Members will also be able to look through job listings and apply directly to companies.
2.) Do you know if your dog is left pawed or right pawed? Left handed dogs are more likely to be aggressive to strangers than those that are right-pawed. Australian researchers tested a group of dogs to see which paw they preferred to use for basic tasks and then analyzed their behavioral traits. They found while there was no link with levels of excitability or attention seeking, the animals which were 'left-pawed' were much more likely to act aggressively towards people they did not know.
3.) It’s not unusual for buildings, businesses even towns to avoid the number 13. A suburb in Toronto, Canada has gone farther. Along with skipping 13 when giving out new addresses, Richmond Hill has decided to do away with the number four as well. Four is considered unlucky by speakers of Cantonese and Mandarin because it sounds like the word "death," and while the area has a large Chinese population, residents say it's not only Asians who are turned off by the number. The Toronto Star reports numbers like 14 and 24 will still be used for new addresses, and people who currently have a four in their address can apply to have a suffix added to make into the somewhat less unlucky 4A or 4B.
