- Senior Editor of Reader Digest Jeremy Greenfield – 50 “NICEST PLACES IN AMERICA” SELECTED BASED ON KINDNESS AND CIVILITY: The places are chosen over a submission period of 31 days. Finalists consist of neighborhoods, communities and towns where people are kind and treat each other with respect. A panel of judges and Reader’s Digest editors selected the places after reviewing entries highlighting stories of goodness.Nicest Places in America is not a ranking,” said Reader’s Digest Senior Editor Jeremy Greenfield. “We don’t use algorithms – we tell the stories of the actual people who are choosing civility and kindness as a way of life. Our goal with Nicest Places is to inspire Americans to be kinder to friends, family, strangers and neighbors.”

- Expert on Infectious Disease Dr. Murray Cohen – WHICH SPREAD MORE GERMS: AIR DRYERS OR PAPER TOWELS?: Those air-blown hand dryers in public restrooms may spread far more germs than conventional paper towels, a new study suggests. British researchers placed a harmless type of bacteria on the hands of volunteers in order to simulate poorly washed hands. They then had them use warm-air dryers, high-powered “jet-air” dryers or paper towels to dry their hands. The investigators measured airborne bacteria levels and found higher amounts of germs around both types of dryers than around towel dispensers.
