Dover Police officer dances to ‘Shake it Off’

The Dover Police Department released a dash-cam video on Friday of one officer, Master Cpl. Jeff Davis, jamming out to Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” as a thank you to its local community.

Dover Police Department public information officer Mark Hoffman told TODAY.com that the video was a fun way to engage with the department’s Facebook page, which recently reached 10,000 likes. The numbers, Hoffman said, are a huge success considering the town has a population of about 38,000, and the department only started their page in October of 2013.

Dover Police DashCam (Shake It Off)

The video is introduced as a “Dover Police Department Public Affairs production.” It opens with text that reads: “While reviewing in-car cameras, we tend to see some “interesting” things… We decided to share some of them with you in a new series called ‘Dash Cam Confessionals.”

10 Tips on Organizing your Mind

Dutton

The neuroscientist that brought us bestsellers โ€œThis is Your Brain on Musicโ€ and โ€œThe World in Six Songsโ€ has turned his attention to the problem of organization. Dr. Daniel Levitinโ€™s new nonfiction book, โ€œThe Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload,โ€ combines scholarly research and interviews with people like Michael Bloomberg,George Shultz and Sting with practical tips on how to organize our homes, social lives, time and more. โ€œNeuroscientists have learned a lot about the brain and organization and productivity, but it hasnโ€™t trickled down to the average reader,โ€ he says. โ€œMy aim was to bring the science to the average person.โ€

Here are ten tips on organization from Dr. Levitin based on his book, which will be released by Dutton tomorrow.

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2475395,00.asp

What health apps do doctors actually recommend? That’s what a new report from telehealth platform HealthTap sought to uncover, in categories from weight loss and women’s health to heart health and aerobics.

HealthTap requested app recommendations from more than 65,000 doctors on iOS and Android based on three criteria: medical soundness of the app, the app’s utility (in supporting health or healthy living goals), and the app’s usability.
