The CDC says there are millions of cases of the common cold that affect both adults and children in the US each year. Adults come down with roughly two or three colds annually and while they tend to last around a week, there's no cure. But according to Business Insider, there are ways to make yourself more comfortable as your immune system fights off the virus. Dr. Aimee Desrosiers is an infectious disease expert. She says the number one immune-system booster is rest, plain and simple. After that, stay hydrated with plenty of hot or cold water, tea, and broth. Run a humidifier to ease a sore throat and loosen up chest congestion. Finally, use throat spray for a sore throat, decongestant to ease breathing through your nose, and OTC pain relievers for head and body aches. Night night!

What's The Difference Between A CD And A Bond?

For investors looking for a stable stream of income, CDs and bonds are a good place to start. According to Business Insider, although the two financial instruments have much in common, they are distinctly different in several key areas. For example, CDs are insured by banks--bonds are not. Bonds are traded on the open market--CDs are not. Bonds can be liquidated quickly, but CDs tie up your money. Government-issued bond yields aren't taxed. But if you are in, say, the 24% tax bracket, you'll be taxed $24 for every $100 you earn in interest on your CD. Also, bonds have long-term maturity dates, from at least 10 to as long as 30 years. However, CDs usually mature within five years.
