The first day of spring is almost here, (March 20th) and for many Americans, that means it’s time to break out the cleaning supplies and tackle those chores you usually put off. But a new survey found that only half of Americans participate in annual spring cleaning. Even more alarming - 37% say they never do a deep clean of their home.

Most hated chores: Cleaning bathrooms, washing dishes, doing laundry

85% of people put off doing the chores they hate

65% of women with kids say they do all the chores in the family, versus 23% of men.

Take a look at the full report for additional insights on Americans’ cleaning habits, how it impacts their relationships, and the role working from home can have on the cleanliness of your home.

Not only are they delicious, watermelons offer a wide array of health benefits. A new study by a team at the Illinois Institute of Technology has found that the watermelon is quite unique, as it contains various compounds that benefit multiple bodily areas, including amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and essential vitamins. The researchers found watermelons not only offer cardiovascular benefits and improved metabolic health, they also can benefit brain health and bodyweight control. They concluded that making watermelons a regular part of one’s diet may help promote greater overall health.


Dave Chappelle is continuing to work with Netflix despite controversy surrounding his comedy special “The Closer”, which was criticized for comments against the transgender community. He’ll host and executive produce 4 upcoming comedy specials, collectively titled “Chappelle’s Home Team”. The specials, according to a Netflix press release, will be stand-alone shows that will each feature a different comic introduced by Chappelle.

It’s just come out that comedian Russell Peters tied the knot in a big way last weekend — inviting almost 300 guests, many of them big-time celebs. Peters and his bride, Ali, had their big day at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, CA, with a “who’s who” from the music, comedy and sports worlds. Cedric The Entertainer led the couple through their “I dos” as he conducted the ceremony, and, of course, got a few laughs in the process. R&B great Deborah Cox sang the bride and groom’s first dance song, Chic’s Nile Rodgers made a special appearance and UFC announcer Bruce Buffer introduced Russell and Ali as they entered the reception.

Amanda Kloots has announced that she’s been diagnosed with COVID-19, 2 years after her husband Nick Cordero died after a very public battle with the virus. Kloots, the former Broadway dancer and “Dancing With The Stars” contestant assured her followers that she is “feeling completely normal now and feel very grateful for that.” She added that being vaccinated and boosted against the virus “is very much putting me at ease” and she plans to be back at work on “The Talk” when her quarantine ends.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Do you sleep on your side? Stomach? A skin expert is saying you shouldn’t, if you want to avoid the signs of aging. Dr. Farah Moustafa, a dermatologist and director of Laser and Cosmetics at Tufts Medical Center, says that repeatedly sleeping on your side or your stomach means your face is pushed against a pillow. This pressure on the skin can cause wrinkles to form. Lines caused by sleeping on our side or stomach usually appear as vertical wrinkles, while horizontal expression lines are formed when a person makes facial movements like raising or furrowing their eyebrows. Moustafa says that there “is definitely some benefit from sleeping on [your] back to avoid a lot of the compression forces on the face that create lines over time.” The drawback? Sleeping on your back can increase snoring and sleep apnea…and many people don’t find it a natural position to sleep in.

Here’s a dating app with a different angle: “Fourplay” lets singles go on double dates…and it has a waiting list 9,000 names long. The idea is this: You, as a single, could create a joint profile with a friend – so you wouldn’t have to go on a date to meet a stranger alone. Fourplay matches you and your single friend’s profile with the shared profiles of other pairs of singles, setting up pressure-free double dates. As co-developer Julie Griggs puts it: “If two people meet on a Fourplay date and want to go on a romantic date after that, great! If someone comes away from a Fourplay date with one or two new friends, great!” “If you didn’t vibe at all with the people you went out with … at least you were with a friend so it wasn’t a waste of a night.” Fourplay is currently limited to people in the New York City area, but with new investors coming aboard, it should be available internationally soon.

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

Like many who have felt the mental health impact of the pandemic, New Zealander Brooke Lacey had her own share of issues. In the hope helping others, the 22-year-old was inspired to create a batch of stickers that read: “Please don’t take your life today. The world is so much better with you in it. More than you realize, stay.” She printed 600 of them, putting them up in public places, and one on the back of her car. She promptly forgot about the signs for months, until she came out of a coffee shop one day to see a piece of paper stuck underneath her windshield wiper. Figuring she was on the receiving end of a nasty note about her parking technique, Lacey was gobsmacked to find a note thanking her for saving the writer’s life. It read: “I left my house with a plan and asked for a sign, any sign I was doing the right thing, when I saw your car in the parking lot. Thank you.” Lacey’s tweet about the incident, with the words: I am so glad whoever you are chose to stay today. You never know who needs this reminder”, went viral.
