To Sleep, Perchance to Lucid Dream
By Marjorie Noble and Daniel Oldis via DreamsCloud When we remember our dreams, we often struggle to make sense of them. For example, you may dream that a bear is chasing you, and wonder what it could possibly mean. Freud, who believed that puns were important in dreams, might have suggested that a problem or conflict is "bearing" down on you. Animals often turn up in dreams. For instance, let's say you dream that there's a shark in your hot tub and its dead eyes stare at you while it flosses its rows of teeth with fishing line; maybe this signals that you're in hot water because of an approaching deadline at work.

Got a case of bad breath? You're not alone. An estimated 65 percent of Americans suffer from halitosis, or bad breath, according to the Washtenaw District Dental Society. But where does it come from? According to a TED-Ed video narrated by professor and bad breath researcher Mel Rosenberg, all comes down to the activity of bacteria in the mouth.
