Taking more time to enjoy your food may also help you avoid obesity. Researchers in Japan found that chewing more leads to the human body expending more energy and increasing the metabolism of food in the digestive system. The new study, conducted at Weseda University, reveals that oral stimuli, which has a connection to tasting food, and the amount of time spent chewing both play a role in increasing how much energy someone uses while they eat. As a person chews their food longer, the body uses more energy. This increases metabolism and intestinal motility, which leads to more heat generation by the eater after their meal. While the difference in energy expenditure is small, the scientists say that the cumulative effect over multiple meals each day during the course of a year, is substantial.

He looked inside the truck, saying in a report it was in “disarray.” When the officer asked for a drivers license, Patterson said she didn’t have one. She was taken into custody.


A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Netflix brought by a grieving California father who said the TV show “13 Reasons Why” was to blame for his 15-year-old daughter’s death by suicide in April 2017. He accused Netflix of using sophisticated algorithms to “target highly vulnerable children,” including his daughter Bella Herndon, and alleges that kids were “directly manipulated” into watching dangerous content. Netflix disputed the accusations, saying in court filings that restrictions on programming would result in self-censorship. Bella’s father said he plans to appeal.

As the world increasingly accepts the fact that we’ll someday soon live in a world where all vehicles are powered by electricity, car-maker Audi has debuted an “electric vehicle charging hub” that experts say is a taste of the future. The facility, which opened at the end of 2021 in Germany, features 6 quick-charging stations at ground level, built from “second life” batteries recovered from dismantled cars. It also uses solar panels and a standard electrical connection to provide enough juice to “fill” 80 cars per day. It takes about 23 minutes to charge a car from 5% to 80%, during which the driver can while away the time in the lovely lounge upstairs. Audi offers on-time food delivery and vending machines, plus mobile car care. Service staff look after customers in the 200 square meter (2,150 sq. ft.) lounge, which also has a patio. There they can work and relax. On a 98-inch screen, Audi models can be configured or information about the Audi charging hub’s functionality or a car’s current charge level can be retrieved. The lounge also features an electric scooter lending service, information about various Audi products, and test drives of the latest Audi vehicles.

A castle in Scotland said to be haunted by Sir Andrew — aka the Baron of Earlshall, who lived in the home in the 17th century — is up for sale with no particular asking price. Over the years, visitors of the castle have claimed to have heard the footsteps of Sir Andrew, who goes by the nickname “Bloody Bruce.” Sir Andrew lived in the home in the 17th century. Owners and visitors of the home say they hear the footsteps of Bloody Bruce on the spiral staircase in particular. The Baron earned his nickname following his brutal victory at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 during the Scottish Jacobite uprising. He hacked off the hands and head of Covenanter Richard Cameron when defeating him in battle, according to the Savills website, which represents the listing. After Bruce’s direct male line died out in 1708, the castles were bought and sold to different individuals throughout the years. The current owner purchased the estate back in 2019. The castle was built in 1546 by Sir William Bruce, a famed architect at the time — with no relation to Bloody Bruce. It was later restored and renovated by Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer in the 1890s. The castle is made up of 10 bedrooms, eight reception rooms, two dressing rooms, six bathrooms and three cottages across the grounds. Situated on 34 acres of land, features include the original granite fireplace in the Great Hall, coats of arms of European royalty and Scottish noble families, decorative ceilings and wood panelling, and exposed stonework. Many of the windows throughout the historic property were installed for defensive purposes, with musket loops and smaller windows located in strategic places in case of attack. High-profile visitors include Mary, Queen of Scots and James I of England.

Montgomery County Police arrested six men Tuesday on drug trafficking conspiracy charges. The unsealed criminal complaint federally charged the men, who were allegedly distributing cocaine and other drugs in Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and elsewhere in the D.C.-area. The men are all Maryland residents and range in age from 27 to 43. The men were arrested on Jan. 20 and as a result, law enforcement moved forward with search warrants for 21 locations associated with the organization. Officers seized approximately 22 kilograms of cocaine as well as a dozen weapons, including a "ghost gun" and a rifle. Ghost guns are homemade weapons, which are assembled from parts purchased online and are therefore untraceable due to the lack of serial numbers.

Hong Kong residents are rebelling against a proposed cull of the city’s pet hamsters. After enduring, and largely complying with a series of extreme and often baffling pandemic rules, when a cull of 2,000 pet hamsters was announced, a line was crossed. An ‘underground railroad’ has emerged to save abandoned hamsters, with foster carers taking them in and concealing them. ‘Resistance fighters’ have created groups to share updates, drawing on methods used in anti-government protests in 2019. Nearly 3,000 have volunteered to house affected hamsters. And on social media, concerned residents shared photos of abandoned hamsters in the hope of enlisting rescuers, who say the government’s plan is rooted in knee-jerk panic rather than science. Officials said the rodents could carry the coronavirus, and transmit it to humans.

Three people have been charged in connection to an interstate drug trafficking ring in Florence. Deputies with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Enforcement Unit pulled a vehicle heading south on I-95 over for a moving violation Monday. During a consent search of the vehicle, deputies found cocaine and a “large amount of U.S. Currency.” Deputies charged 23-year-old Aaron Joseph Mata, 26-year-old Taylor Lynn Bardwell, and 29-year-old Gene Autry Haley, III with trafficking in cocaine. The three California residents were denied bond and are currently being held in at the Florence County Detention Center. According to FCSO, the estimated street value of the cocaine seized is roughly $230,000.

Americans spend nearly half of their waking hours looking at screens, according to a survey. More specifically, the survey found that 42% of the time Americans are awake, their eyes are fixated on a television, smartphone, computer, tablet, or other device. Supposing the average American slept eight hours a night (not even close to the case for most adults), the researchers calculated that people spend about six hours and 43 minutes a day staring at a screen. Over a typical lifespan, that’s 7,956 days. Of those surveyed, 79% said their screen time has increased over the past five years, with four in ten admitting it’s grown “a lot.” Three in four participants believe they simply spend too much time in front of screens. In fact, 53% take breaks from the computer — by checking their phone. Another 27% admits to watching TV and looking at their phone at the same time. A whopping 92% of the 18 to 35 age group checks their phone immediately after waking up, compared to just 51% of those over 55. About three in five millennials also admit feeling “anxious and irritated” if they can’t check their phone, while only one in five baby boomers feel the same way. Meanwhile, as a whole, 73% say that all the screen time they log makes them feel lethargic, and 64% feel happier after getting a significant break from a screen.

Research carried out in some unique Canadian lakes backs a strange evolutionary theory that has never before been proven. Given the right circumstances, fish get old — like, decades old — but they don’t age. Craig Purchase of Newfoundland’s Memorial University, studied trout in Ontario’s Experimental Lakes Area, a series of isolated watersheds set aside as a biological laboratory. Living in these lakes means the old fish eat the same things the young ones do, which made for the perfect opportunity to study how the trout age. What they found is that not only do the fish continue to grow for their whole lifetime, they also stay reproductively capable…meaning they don’t biologically age. Unfortunately, none of this helps humans, because, as Purchase points out, “We might get fat, but we don’t continue growing.”

Dear John,

He said it was also her Christmas present. They didn't break up, but they are kind of taking a little break, whatever that means. I'd like to tell her that it is wrong for her to tell him no, then keep the engagement ring too. Am I wrong in thinking that?

Earth is in the middle of its next “mass extinction event”, and it may be too late to undo the harm inflicted upon the planet’s species. That’s according to a new study by biologists from the University of Hawaii and the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris. While researchers say that conservation initiatives have been put in place which will protect certain species, the study suggests that the damage has already been done. According to a press release: “These initiatives cannot target all species, and they cannot reverse the overall trend of species extinction.” A mass extinction event involves the loss of at least 75% of species. While we haven’t yet seen such a high rate of extinction, there is potential for it to happen in the future, and the scientists argue it’s in the process of happening right now. -IFLScience, CTV
