A nice firm handshake has long been a mark of good manners and elevated social skills.
It is also a very germy way to greet your fellow humans, much worse than a couple of more casual alternatives, a new study shows.
"A short, sweet fist bump will transmit the least bacteria," and even a high-five is better than a traditional shake, says David Whitworth, a senior lecturer in biochemistry at Aberystwyth University-Ceredigion in the United Kingdom.
Whitworth and a colleague systematically tested the three greetings for a study published Monday in the American Journal of Infection Control.

By the way, this wasn't a little six or ten propeller toy drone, this was a full-sized aircraft you might think was military.

CALFIRE confirmed this morning that a drone being flown over the Sand fire nearly caused air attack operations to be stopped because of the potential danger to firefighting planes.
The unidentified person flying the drone was apparently trying to get video of the blaze and was told to stop by fire officials. Bill Lavallie is trying to gather more information about this aspect of the many facets of the Sand fire. Be sure and pick up a copy of the Friday, Aug. 1, 2014 print edition of the Amador Ledger Dispatch for a timeline, synopsis, full color photos and the personal stories of those affected by this blaze.

Not only did the Sand fire make the national television news this weekend, it also landed us in the Los Angeles Times.

CALFIRE’S latest information on the Sand fire released at 8 a.m. this morning, Monday, July 28, says the blaze is now 65 percent contained, and has not burned any additional acreage, with 3,800 acres still listed as burned. Fire crews increased the containment overnight and plan to continue to improve and hold those lines today. There are currently 1,937 fire personnel on scene in 51 crews using 196 engines, 4 helicopters, 30 dozers and 52 water tenders. Most other air resources have been re tasked to the El Portal fire burning in Yosemite National Park. Fire officials estimate that although the steep, dry terrain continues to challenge their efforts, “the recent gains in containment has moved the projected control date to August 1.”
