SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Researchers say that confidence in your cooking skills — along with better eating habits and decisions — is good for your mental health. This comes from Edith Cowan University scientists, who partnered with charities to put together a mobile food kitchen that provided community cooking lessons. During the program, the team polled participants on their satisfaction with cooking and general diet habits. Those who took the 7-week cooking course displayed significant improvement in their mental health, overall health, and perceived vitality. Many participants also reported increased confidence in the kitchen, newfound ability to change their diet on the fly, and the capacity to overcome lifestyle barriers to healthy eating.

Are you feeling the love from your boss? A new survey says that 63% workers feel unappreciated by their employer on a daily basis. In the poll of 2,000 Americans, all of whom are either employed or searching for a new job, 65% said they’d likely stay at a job with an unappreciative manager if their co-workers still recognized their work. But 59% said they’ve NEVER has a boss who truly appreciated what they do for the company. How important is it to feel appreciated? 20% claim they’d give up a week’s worth of pay for more employer recognition. Other findings in the survey, done by OnePoll:

46% have left a job because they felt unappreciated.

35% would prefer recognition from their employer in the form of perks, bonuses or a recognition program.


Reports that Kanye West is seeking help following his recent conflict with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson are false, according to his rep. Last week, a “source close to the Kardashians” said that West told his former spouse he is “going away to get help.” The source claimed that West doesn’t plan to make any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and will go away to “get better”, for the sake of their kids. However, West’s new Head of Media and Partnerships, Jason Lee, said in a statement that this narrative is not accurate. Quote: “He’s been focused on taking care of himself, being a present and loving father and a creative genius well before all the false headlines we’ve seen as recent.”

Some lucky bidder is walking home with a cool artifact from “The Wizard of Oz.” The Tin Man’s oil can has just sold for $250,000! The highly sought-after piece of memorabilia was expected to fetch around $200k at the Artifacts of Hollywood & Music Auction. Tin Man’s can, the actual one used in the classic 1939 movie starring Judy Garland, is one of the only original items left from the character’s costume. Jack Haley, who played Tin Man, got to keep it as a parting gift after filming wrapped.

Netflix is taking its dating shows to the realm of marriage with “The Ultimatum: Marry or Move on”. It features 6 couples, all on the verge of getting hitched. But one partner in each relationship is unsure of taking things to the next level. While on the show, they are given an ultimatum: get married in 8 weeks or move on with someone else. The couples will also be choosing new partners to spend those 8 weeks with as they move in together in a “trial marriage”. Netflix released a trailer for the new show this week. The first 8 episodes of “The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On” was released April 6. LINK:

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by


(Although some reports conclude there’s simply no amount of alcohol that’s healthy, many published papers point to the ways red wine benefits us. Here are some…)

May improve gut health: OK, maybe not the sexiest benefit to start off with, but studies show those who even drink it occasionally enjoy increased gut microbiota diversity (one benefit of which is antioxidants), plus lower levels of “bad” cholesterol and obesity.

Diabetes prevention: Just one glass with dinner can reduce blood sugar levels, as opposed to drinking beer or liquor with food, which increases your diabetes risk.

Improves blood pressure: Flavonoid-rich foods such as berries, wine, apples, and pears have a positive effect on blood pressure levels. 3 glasses of red wine per week also appears to do the trick. (Of course, breaking the cork into the bottle has the opposite effect…)

Brain health: If you pair wine with cheese, it appears to contribute to better cognitive health as you age, which may also help fight Alzheimer’s disease.

Walking on Mars(!): Without gravity, human muscles and bones quickly deteriorate and lose strength. On a 9-month journey to Mars, this would be a big problem. But resveratrol, found in red wine, has displayed the ability to preserve muscle mass and strength in rats exposed to simulated Mars gravity.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Apparently, it wasn’t an April Fool’s Day joke. Late last week, Dyson, the company famous for vacuum cleaners and hair dryers, unveiled its new noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones that come with a unique feature – an air purifier. Named the “Dyson Zone”, the headphones supposedly purify airflow to the nose and mouth. They come equipped with electrostatic carbon filters that remove 99% of particulates, according to the company. And despite the face mask-style visor – which flips down and detaches to avoid getting in the way of conversations – Dyson says it was not designed with COVID-19 in mind, but is aimed at those living in cities looking for a way to reduce the effects of air pollution. The Dyson Zone will go on sale this fall, starting at about US $550. LINK:

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Texas teen has been treated to a new pickup truck after surviving a harrowing and bizarre ordeal last week. A storm chaser’s camera inadvertently captured the moment that a tornado near Austin tipped Riley Leon’s Chevy pickup onto its side then blew it back onto its wheels, allowing him to drive away to safety. The truck was severely damaged, so Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet and the automaker worked together to give him a brand new 2022 Silverado Texas Edition. Along with the truck, which is worth over $50,000, the dealer also gave Leon $15,000 for expenses. His back was fractured in the incident and may require surgery, and his family has no health insurance.
