U.K. scientists say they’ve come up with a new technique capable of rewinding the aging of skin cells by about 30 years. Researchers from the Babraham Institute’s epigenetics research program claim that they partly restored the function of older cells, without losing their specialized function. These partially-rejuvenated cells also showed signs of behaving more like youthful cells. They say the research could have implications for regenerative medicine and create cells that are better at healing wounds.


Personal items that once belonged to Betty White, including a gold watch from her mother, are going up for auction in September. Awards, paintings, scripts, jewelry and red-carpet outfits from the “Golden Girls” actress were put on display at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. Julien’s said the auction of items exclusively from White’s home in Brentwood and her residence in Carmel in northern California, where she lived with husband Allen Ludden, “represent an incredible life and career.” The most personal item is a “14-carat gold watch that was gifted to Betty Dec. 25, 1940 with the initials T.C.W. which is Tess White, Betty’s mom.” White died at age 99 on Dec. 31.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

What’s an early warning sign that the economy might be tanking? Your underwear, according to former US Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. He became a little bit famous for his theory of underwear as a key economic predictor. He believes that nobody else sees men’s underwear, except in the locker room. So, the thinking is that underwear sales are usually stable, and when it dips, that means men are so broke that they’re deciding not to replace underwear. And stats back up his theory. Here are some other strange supposed economic indicators . . .

Skyscraper Index: The theory is that an increase in very tall buildings happens as we’re approaching a bust — and when a building that breaks the record for world’s tallest is completed, an economic crisis is imminent.

Lipstick Index: The purchase of cosmetics, especially lipsticks, are inversely related to the economy because women replace more expensive purchases with small pick-me-ups. This was revised to the “moisturizing index” during the COVID economic downturn, as consumers turned to skincare items as they donned masks and worked from home.

Dating Site Index: Matchup sites enjoy a boost during economic busts. Why? Unemployed people have plenty of time to swipe around. And online dating is (relatively) inexpensive.

A Texas drone business teamed up with an online content creator to create a giant QR code over Dallas to “Rickroll” the entire city for April Fools Day. People on the ground who used their phones to scan the QR code formed by the drones were taken to the YouTube video for Rick Astley’s song ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, the classic online prank known as a “Rickroll.” In a Facebook post, Digital content creator Jared Guynes, known as the creator of “Epic Nerf Battles”, said: “That’s right Dallas. You were witness to the first ever drone rickroll in history. I thought you’d get a kick out of it”. LINK:

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

A man who won a $217 million lottery jackpot has decided to spend nearly all of it to help save the planet. The winner, nicknamed “Guy” by the French lottery group Fran├žaises des Jeux, won the sum in December 2020. At the time, the jackpot was the largest in the history of EuroMillions, a lottery involving several European countries including France and the UK. He says he is putting the bulk of his winnings toward “Anyama”, a nature foundation he created. Why? “The priority today is saving the planet. We must act. It is an absolute emergency.”
