Californians seem divided over health care reform, but not the GOP.
The latest poll from the Public Policy Institute of Calfiornia shows an even split over Obamacare. 44% of voters have a favorable view of the law and 44% have an unfavorable one.
"Not only divided, but deeply divided along party lines," Mark Baldassare with PPIC said.
Baldassare says nearly 2/3 of the uninsured say they'll buy in.
When it comes to parties, the GOP continues to suffer with a record 65% disapproval.
"It's a challenge for Republicans to win statewide races," he said.
But Democrats shouldn't exactly celebrate. 50% of respondents weren't fans of that party either.
Researchers are suggesting that energy drinks loaded with caffeine can change the way the heart beats.
A team from the University of Bonn in Germany said the study shows contractions were more forceful an hour after people had the drink.
Researcher Dr. Jonas Dorner says the amount of caffeine is up to three times higher than in other caffeinated drinks such as coffee or cola.
The researchers told those attending the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America that children and people with some health conditions should not use the drinks.
More than 100,000 people signed up for health insurance through online exchanges last month.
"Bloomberg" cites an anonymous source, close to the federal healthcare program, who says the November numbers show a steady increase in online sign-ups since the program's troubled rollout on Oct. 1.
The majority of last month's sign-ups were through the exchanges run by 14 states and the District of Columbia, while roughly one-quarter were done through the federal marketplace.
The increase in November is good news for the Obama administration, which still expects most people to sign up next year as the March 31 deadline for buying health insurance approaches.
The White House is promoting improvements in healthcare.gov, the website for new healthcare exchanges.
"With the improvements that were made, we believe that this website is and will function, effectively for the vast majority of users," White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
Carney said about 375,000 users went to healthcare.gov by midday Monday.
Over the weekend, the Obama administration touted a 90% success rate after a tech surge that went on for nearly a month.
The federal website was riddled with glitches when it was launched on Oct. 1.
Carney stressed, "The work is not done" and said special tech teams will continue working to make the site better.
Emergency Oral Contraceptives are not working in women who weigh more than 176 pounds.
Scientists say weight is having a clear impact on a drugs effectiveness.
France's HRA Pharma found their emergency contraceptive Norlevo began losing its effectiveness in women above 165 pounds and was rendered ineffective at 176 pounds.
Norlevo is the European equivalent of the Plan-B One Step oral contraceptive in America.
The reason for the ineffectiveness is the amount of time taken to reach certain levels of concentration in a woman's blood stream.
Women concerned about contraception effectiveness can have an IUD implanted.
But the best way to prevent pregnancy is to use effective birth control correctly and consistently.
