How much water should you drink?

Drinking water is essential to good health. However, drinking too much water causes low sodium levels and can result in a mild to life-threatening condition called hyponatremia. A new study released in the New England Journal of Medicine found an increase of hyponatremia in Ironman triathlons. The study found that women triathletes with a racing time of nine hours or more appear to be the most susceptible to hyponatremia. So, how much water should the average person drink?

Animal Island: Cut tree branches to move unwelcome birds along

Q: We live near the water and four or five pairs of some kind of small heron have built nests in some very large maple trees in the front of our house. The first year they did this there was only one pair and we thought it was kind of cool, but now the mess on our front lawn is unbelievable. Poop and feathers are everywhere and all over our cars if we park them in the driveway. Is there any way we can discourage the birds from living here? Nothing scares them at all; people on our block shoot off fireworks every Fourth of July and it does not faze these birds at all.
