EXPERT: PUPPIES THAT INTERACT WITH DIFFERENT TEXTURES WITHIN SIX WEEKS OF BIRTH ARE BETTER BEHAVED: Some dogs are much better behaved than others, and an expert says there’s one thing you can do to try and get your pooch into the ‘better behaved’ category--- expose a puppy to multiple textures within the first six-weeks of its life. Researchers from the charity Guide Dogs in the U.K. train about 1,300 puppies per year to be used as guide dogs for visually impaired humans. Over the six-week period the animals are slowly introduced to sounds (think a bag rustling up to a cell phone ringtone), and textures (a sweater and then by week six grass and various types of clothing.) By week six the puppies also begin early training. In addition, coming into contact with the bristles of men’s mustaches and beards helps improve the animal’s social skills as well.

THESE TRICKS COULD HELP YOU GET YOUR LUGGAGE FIRST AT BAGGAGE CLAIM: If you check a bag, waiting for it to appear on the carousel can feel like it takes forever. But there are a few things you can do to speed up your wait time. First, you can ask the representative at the check-in counter to attach a fragile sticker to your bag. Bags marked in this way will typically be loaded later and therefore come out sooner when you get to your destination. Gate agent Thomas Sciuto also says you can wait to be the last person to check-in, which follows the same logic as the first suggestion. Still, loading and unloading systems can sometimes vary, so in some cases those who check in last may not necessarily get their bag first. The only guaranteed ways to get your bag first is by either booking a first or business class flight, or by joining an airline’s frequent flier club so you get a priority tag on your bag.

The Best Time to Do Holiday Shopping to Avoid Crowds
Thanksgiving is next week, and that means Black Friday kicking off holiday shopping is just one week away too, which isn't good news for people who hate all the crowds in stores when they're out looking for gifts. InMarket has compiled data on the most- and least-crowded days in stores during the holiday season to help choose the best days to avoid the worst of it. InMarket uses Bluetooth beacons to connect with shoppers' smartphones, and with that was able to get traffic data from 50 million people from last year's holiday shopping season. They found that December 13th was the least crowded day, and there was also a dip on December 5th, while Black Friday, the weekend before Christmas, and the day before Christmas were the busiest. For all the people who do post-Christmas returns, the week after the holiday was also busy. (Business Insider)
