Three things you should know today

1 Everything you need to know about love: Mistletoe, the popular holiday plant under which couples traditionally smooch, is actually a parasitic plant. That means mistletoe will harm other plants by using their water and nutrients.

2 Mary Cheney, daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, is pregnant. The news is troubling to some conservatives who don’t support same-sex couples having children.

3 Former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, who died recently from poisoning, lost the hair on his head from the radiation, but not his eyebrows. This is because radiation affects the fast-growing hair follicle cells on the top of the head more than the slower-growing hair in the eyebrows.
