British researchers say a firm handshake could be a sign of a longer life expectancy. Scientists found that elderly people who could still give a firm handshake and walk at a brisk pace were likely to outlive their slower peers. They found simple measures of physical capability like shaking hands, walking, getting up from a chair and balancing on one leg were related to life span, even after accounting for age, sex and body size.

He was arrested for public intoxication and trespassing and booked into the city jail.(


Mark Wahlberg is set to star opposite Kevin Hart in “Me Time,” a comedy at Netflix. It centers on a stay-at-home dad (Hart), who, with some “me time” for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away, reconnects with his former best friend (Wahlberg) for a wild weekend that nearly upends his life. It’s a big get for Netflix, as Hart has been one of the few consistently bankable box office stars recently, with his movies grossing over $4 billion worldwide.

Could a reboot of “The Office” be on the way? According to NBCU content chief Susan Rovner, it’s a possibility. She recently attended the Edinburgh International TV Festival, where she initially said “no comment” when asked about plans for a potential reboot of the hit NBC sitcom. When pressed, she said: “Whenever (exec producer) Greg Daniels wants to do one, we’re standing by.” In January, Daniels said that a reboot of The Office was not currently in development but is “not impossible.” He elaborated by saying: “I would want to be involved, and I’ve got two other shows I’m working on right now.”

We’re all obsessed with finding the best: the best TV, the best laptop, the best toothpaste. At a certain point, though, you’re just wasting time. Personal finance advisor and author Ramit Sethi says we shouldn’t spend more than two seconds on decisions that don’t really matter. The next time you find yourself deliberating, ask: “Is this something that actually matters? Or should this be a two second decision?”

Two young nitwits committed a series of drive-by slushie attacks that they recorded with a GoPro camera for uploading to YouTube, according to Florida cops who charged the duo with battery and conspiracy. Police say 19-year-old Rafael Mercado and 18-year-old Ke’ziyah McKay targeted victims Saturday afternoon in Pinellas Park, a city in the Tampa Bay area. As alleged in a criminal complaint, the teenage dirtbags purchased seven slushies from a Circle K store and then proceeded to throw the frozen drinks at “multiple persons for the purpose of their YouTube video content.” The slushies were launched at pedestrians by McKay, who was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Mercado (who filmed the misdemeanor action with McKay's GoPro camera). After Mercado was collared by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper, he reportedly confessed and said that he had done similar slushie attacks a week earlier, “also for the purpose of the YouTube content.” McKay is listed as Mercado’s co-defendant in the complaint, but he has yet to be arrested. Mercado was freed from the county jail Saturday night after posting $650 bond. (
