In light of the pandemic, grocery stores have increased their cleaning and disinfecting measures. But how well is that working? In Toronto, Canada, 24 grocery stores had high-touch surfaces swabbed. Unsurprisingly the surface with the most bacteria was the PIN pad used during checkout. The surface with the second-highest bacteria count was the shopping basket handle. Tied for third place were the freezer door handle and the front of the shopping cart. Fourth was the baby seat in the shopping cart. The cleanest spot was the shopping cart handle, probably because staff are regularly cleaning those and stores are providing wipes so customers can also clean them.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, which would it be? A survey (Harris Poll) posed this thought-provoking question to Americans. In an increasingly polarized country, where ideological differences result in shouting matches and pointed fingers, it’s heartening to know that Americans can agree on what really matters: pizza. Yes, the single food that most Americans would want to eat for the rest of their lives is pizza, which 21 percent of survey participants chose as their answer. It beat out steak (16 percent), tacos (11 percent), pasta (11 percent), and even the hamburger (13 percent).

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by TimeForRehab.com
the CBS affiliate licensed to Bay City, Saginaw, and Flint, Michigan,
aired a helpful reminder about daylight saving time on October 31st,
2020 — but sharp-eyed viewers got more than they bargained for. The
graphic was assumedly supposed to read “Turn your clocks back one
hour tonight” but whoever created the image missed an “L”
resulting in “Turn your cocks back one hour tonight.” Ouch. That
sounds painful. In a Facebook post, the station wrote: “We regret
the unfortunate typo in a spot for changing clocks this weekend.
We’ve taken steps to address it” accompanied by a different
graphic with, thankfully, the correct spelling of “clocks.”
