Today's Brain Teaser . . .
What term did English astronomer John Herschel coin in 1839 that literally means "writing with light"?   (answer below)
How To Protect Yourself And Others On The Road
Could you pass a written driver's test – today? The results of an online GMAC Insurance survey showed that nearly 1 in 5 licensed drivers – 38 million Americans – probably wouldn't! Here's what you should do to brush up on the Rules of the Road and make yourself safer.

Take the National Drivers Test. Go to www.nationaldriverstest.com. Answer the 20 questions from state exams and study up on the ones you missed. You also can download it to Facebook and challenge your friends.

Review Local Traffic Laws. Many states post them on a .gov website.

Avoid these top driving mistakes that cause crashes:
  • Multi-tasking while driving. Say "no" to: texting, phone calls and eating!
  • Following too closely. Leave 2 seconds between you and the car ahead.
  • Failure to yield on a left turn. Check for cars or people in your path.
  • Incorrect merging. Merge carefully but don't stop.
  • Backing up. Don't rely on the mirrors. Look over your shoulder.
Get help from your car. The next time you're car shopping, look for a model that offers new "smart" technologies such as Distance Control Assist (which applies the brakes when you're following another car too closely); Blind-Spot Detection (which alerts you about vehicles in your blind spots); and Night Vision Systems (which give you a vision of the road ahead with a infrared beam).

Five Spices To Boost Your Brain
By "spicing up" your life, you can be helping your brain. Recent studies have shown that spicy food can preserve brain function and help prevent disease. Add these five tasty spices to your diet to reap the benefits:

Turmeric. Called the "ultimate health spice," turmeric contains curcumin and is an ingredient in curry. Studies have shown that it may help prevent Alzheimer's and lessen the pain of rheumatoid arthritis. Sprinkle it on your broccoli or mix a spoonful in a warm glass of water and drink it down.

Ginger. This spice may make you smarter if combined with ginkgo biloba. It also may help treat Parkinson's disease and migraine headaches. Try drinking it as a hot tea.

Garlic. You already love this one, but did you know it increases blood flow to the brain? In a 2007 study, garlic helped fight brain cancer cells.

Saffron. A saffron extract has been found to be effective in treating people with depression.

Cinnamon. Eating it helps with blood sugar control, but just smelling it boosts brain activity. It also speeds the way your brain processes visual cues. Chew some cinnamon gum before your next bike ride.
