The latest update issued Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows influenza is now widespread in 43 states -- up from 36 states the previous week. Six children died of the flu last week, raising the total number of childhood fatalities for this year's flu season to 21.

These stroke victims can't speak, but they're still singing from PRI
“Welcome to the Stroke a Chord choir, my name is Tim Adams.” Adams, a 49-year-old lawyer from Australia, was training for a marathon about four years ago when he suffered a massive stroke.

How To Cook Every Winter Vegetable from The Huffington Post
Vegetable season comes twice a year: in the summer when we froth at the mouth for fresh veggies like corn and tomatoes, and in the first weeks of January, when New Year's resolutions are fresh and naive minds are optimistic about following them. With the holiday season officially behind us, it's time to at least pretend you're going to be eating healthy food for a while, and if you play your cards right, you may even trick yourself into enjoying vegetables (if you haven't yet gotten on board with the best food trend in recent years: vegetables rule).
