Evolution: Why do your eyes face forwards?


Take a stroll through a zoo and, if you're paying attention, you might notice that most animals can be sorted into two groups.

Do you know the difference between teaspoons and tablespoons?

Many parents don’t, according to a study published Monday by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which found more than 10,000 calls to the poison center each year are due to liquid medication dosage errors.
