Extreme weather is so bad in some parts of the country, even the US Postal Service won’t be going out:

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” the saying goes.

But whoever said that didn’t face weather of the kind predicted for Wednesday. So postal workers won’t be out delivering anything in six entire states, and parts of four others.
The US Postal Service said Tuesday night on Facebook that because of the predicted deteriorating weather conditions in the Midwest, delivery will be suspended in some areas.
The list of regions and states affected: Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and parts of Kansas, Missouri, Montana and Nebraska.

Women invited to wear white to Trump’s State of the Union address:

The House Democratic Women’s Working Group is inviting female members of both parties to wear white to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next week as a symbol of solidarity.

“Wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned rights,” Rep. Lois Frankel of Florida, the chair of the working group, told CNN.

Lowering blood pressure could cut risk factor for dementia:

Intensive lowering of blood pressure, to a less than 120 mm Hg level, can have a measurable impact on mild cognitive impairment (MCI) — a well-established precursor of dementia, a new study finds.

Previous studies have suggested high blood pressure could be a risk factor for dementia and mild cognitive impairment, leading US researchers to explore whether lowering pressure could reduce this risk in a large randomized trial on more than 9000 people.
Lowering blood pressure did not significantly reduce dementia risk, but the secondary results showed a significant reduction in MCI, according to the study published Monday.

Four-figure hotel rooms: Eight that are worth the price:

There are the five-star hotels with excellent concierge services — and then there are the five-star hotels that provide you with a personal 24-hour butler for the duration of your stay.
For those who can afford to pay more than $1,000 a night for a room, travel expectations are extremely high. And a hotel’s stars take on a whole new meaning.
Guests plunking down at least four figures for a single night are used to attentive service, luxurious details and, perhaps most importantly, utmost discretion. And of course, this level of luxury is certainly not one-size-fits-all. The properties on this list range from miniscule, secluded camps in hard-to-get-to areas to large, lavish hotels in some of the top urban centers of the world.
Distinct as each property is, they all share one essential commonality: attention to every detail.
