Using headlights during the day can save lives

Several studies have found that accident rates could be reduced and lives saved if drivers in Connecticut and around the country used their headlights during the day. Some researchers believe that the number of crashes on the nation's roads could be cut by 10 percent if all vehicles were fitted with daytime running lights, and countries including Denmark and Canada have passed laws mandating the use of headlights during daylight hours.

Shared parenting as an option in divorce

Connecticut parents who are divorcing might want to consider joint physical custody instead of the traditional arrangement in which one parent, almost always the mother, gets custody of the child while the other parent has visitation rights and spends much less time with the child. There is a growing body of research about the benefits of shared parenting for children after a divorce, and the arrangement can work better for parents as well.

Preventing digital eyestrain in the workplace

Connecticut workers who sit in front of computers all day may suffer from digital eyestrain or computer vision syndrome. These conditions encompass a number of vision-related problems that can be caused by prolonged exposure to digital screens, including computers, smartphones and tablets.

Repair technique for water pipes may be hazardous

Connecticut workers who regularly repair water pipes as part of their jobs should be aware of the results of a study conducted by researchers at Purdue University. The researchers contend that the cured-in-place pipe repair method emits dangerous substances in the air and should be reassessed for the dangers that it may present to workers, the general public and the environment.
