A 4-day school week results in poorer grades, according to research by a team at Oregon State University. They found that high schoolers participating in a 4-day school week performed worse on a series of standardized math tests than their peers sticking to a typical 5-day schedule. Interestingly, scores dropped even more among those attending non-rural schools, but it only seemed to impact math grades. Reading scores were generally unaffected.

A child’s first words are often ‘Mama’ or ‘Daddy’, but not always. Researchers from Cornell University have found that kids are just as likely to learn ‘this’ or ‘that’ as their first real words. Other demonstratives, such ‘here’ and ‘there’ are also often among early additions to a child’s vocabulary. Interestingly, this has been documented across a number of languages, including English, Spanish, and Mandarin.


Jason Momoa is about to get very pixelated. The “Aquaman” and “Dune” star is in “final” negotiations to star in a live-action movie based on the popular video game “Minecraft”, according to reports. Minecraft, first launched in 2011, is a sandbox video game with a distinct blocky design in which players can explore and craft on a virtually endless terrain of open-world space. “Dune” producer Mary Parent and Roy Lee are set to direct the movie.

After bidding farewell to Daniel Craig’s ‘007’ last year in “No Time To Die”, the question remains: Who will be the next “James Bond”? Tom Hardy has consistently dominated the conversation, with the “Venom” star often named as the bookies’ favorite to play the next 007. However, it seems he has now been replaced by a fresher-faced candidate. According to one oddsmaker, “Bridgerton” star RegĂ©-Jean Page is currently the favorite to play the next James Bond, with odds coming in at 9/4. Hardy is fourth, with odds of 8/1. Ahead of him are Henry Cavill and Aidan Turner, in 2nd and 3rd places.

Jennifer Grey is opening up about her infamous decision to get a nose job at the height of her career in the early ’90s, and how she felt she wasn’t a “natural match” for her “Dirty Dancing” co-star Patrick Swayze. The 62-year-old would go on to have 2 rhinoplasty surgeries after finding worldwide recognition in the 1987 box-office smash where she played ‘Baby’ — but her new look left her unrecognizable, causing her to, in her words, lose her identity and her career overnight. Promoting her new memoir, “Out of the Corner”, Grey also said that she and Swayze had “zero chemistry” together, “and the fact that we needed to be a natural match created a tension.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

While prices for just about everything have increased across the board, there remains one notable exception: AriZona Iced Tea. The company’s 23-ounce core product, nicknamed “Big-AZ”, is still only 99 cents in the US, and it’s been that way for 30 years. Company founder Don Vultaggio recently said that he’ still “committed to that 99-cent price…Consumers don’t need another price increase from a guy like me.” Yes, his company is making less money per can, but he sells a billion cans per year in a crowded market where rival brands cost roughly twice the price.

Does it sometimes seem like your life consists the same mundane, boring things, day after day? That could be a good thing. An occupational therapist at Queen’s University in Kingston ON says that having routines can support cognitive function, boost health and provide meaningful activities and social opportunities. How? Megan Edgelow says having a daily routine and regular habits supports cognitive function by freeing you up to be more creative. Research shows that regular work processes allows people to spend less cognitive energy on recurring tasks, which can support focus and creativity for more complex tasks. As for health, regular routines and habits can support older adults to function better in their home environments, such as taking medications at the same time, regular meals and getting enough sleep. And what about the social benefits of routines? Edgelow says a health-promoting activity such as walking can offer chances to enjoy nature, explore new places and socialize…while providing mental health benefits at the same time. With some pandemic measures being eased these days, she says we now have an opportunity to consider the routines we want to keep and the things we need in our daily lives to stay productive, happy and healthy.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

An Ontario county was forced to reprogram a digital sign parked at the side of a road after the tires it used to change locations went missing. The County of Wellington (west of Toronto) said in a Twitter post that the wheels from the digital sign’s trailer vanished while it was parked on the shoulder of a road in Belwood. The sign was being used to warn drivers of their speed on the road until the wheels were apparently stolen. The new message greeting everyone who drives on Wellington Road 19? “Have you seen my wheels?”
