Watching less TV could cut heart disease, according to University of Hong Kong research. Coronary heart disease occurs when fatty material builds up inside coronary arteries, causing them to narrow, reducing the heart’s blood supply. The researchers found that more than one in 10 cases of coronary heart disease could be prevented if people reduced their TV viewing to less than an hour a day. They concluded: “Reducing time spent watching TV should be recognized as a key behavioral target for prevention of coronary heart disease, irrespective of other risk factors.”


Dame Angela Lansbury is set to receive a Lifetime Achievement gong at the Tony Awards. The 96-year-old actress – who has won 5 Tonys — will be honored at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on June 12. A statement says “Angela Lansbury’s contributions to the stage are insurmountable, from her groundbreaking role in “Mame”, to her iconic performances in “Deuce” and “Sweeney Todd”, and most recently, in the revival of ‘A Little Night Music,’ Ms. Lansbury has given us a lifetime of unforgettable performances.” Lansbury is perhaps best-known for playing ‘Jessica Fletcher’ in “Murder, She Wrote”, which is still the longest-running TV detective drama of all time.

Getting COVID was an especially scary experience for Jeff Bridges. In a new interview, the 72-year-old told People that he “was pretty close to dying” after contracting COVID while undergoing chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma in early 2021. The actor explained that he “had no defences. That’s what chemo does — it strips you of all your immune system”. Bridges said he was in hospital for nearly 5 months, in extreme pain and unable to even roll over without a nurse to help him with his oxygen supply. Quote: “The doctors kept telling me, ‘Jeff, you’ve got to fight.” He says he was “in surrender mode”, but began to improve after receiving convalescent plasma treatment, in which blood is used from people who have previously recovered from an illness.

Bruce Willis is dunking on. The “Die Hard” star, whose family announced his aphasia diagnosis earlier this year, appeared to be in high spirits Monday as he played a game of backyard basketball with friends. Willis’ wife, Emma Heming, captioned the video “I see you BeeDub,” which showed him shooting the ball through the hoop. The 67-year-old actor, wore a dark gray sweater, khaki trousers, gray sneakers and a blue baseball cap in the clip, which came a few days after Heming admitted to struggling with her husband’s health news.

The statements below, contrary to what you have probably been told, are all myths:

Dark skin doesn’t need sunscreen/can’t get melanoma: Darker skin tones are less prone to skin cancer, but this can mean signs are ignored until chances of successful treatment are diminished.

A base tan protects you: A base tan is nature’s way of producing sun protection because you’ve been irradiated. But it doesn’t lessen your risk of skin cancer, and you’ll age your skin faster with constant sun tanning.

You don’t need to use sunscreen inside: All contact with sunlight requires protection, even exposure through an office or car window and walking from building to building.

The number on sunscreen is proportionate to the number of minutes of sun protection: Nope. Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a measure of how much solar energy (UV radiation) is required to burn protected skin. SPF 15 allows 1/15 of harmful UVB rays to reach the skin. The remaining 14/15 means you’re protecting against 93% of UVB radiation. So, SPF 30 blocks 97% and SPF 50 prevents 98%. (OK you got me there…I thought that one was true!)

The SPF in makeup is enough: It’s good enough to cover you when you’re walking from your car to work. If you’re outside longer than 15 minutes, you need higher SPF and must reapply.

One application of sunscreen in the morning is enough for the whole day: Reapplying is just as important as the first coat. Sunscreen gets consumed once the light hits it, which means you have to reapply regularly to remain protected.

You don’t need sunscreen during off-peak hours: The sun’s rays can cause damage no matter what time it is. If you’re outside for longer than 15 minutes, you need SPF. You can still get burned at 8 am as well as after 4 pm. (So why can’t I seem to TAN then??)

Sunscreen on your face, arms, back, and legs is enough: It’s a great start, but you should also apply it to the ears, nose, hands and the tops of your feet. And remember your scalp, especially if you have thinning or less hair. (That’s what my fishing hat is for!)

Melanoma is only caused by sun exposure: Melanoma can strike without sun exposure, which makes regular skin checks important. Sun exposure does make the risk higher.

It’s the latest must-have pet . . . and it’s definitely NOT one you’re going to be able to guess: The praying mantis. Researchers in Italy have noted that the pet mantis (including the praying mantis and other stick insects) market is growing drastically. Study authors say they are being bought and sold at fairs and pet markets, then “raised” by either professionals or amateur owners. These interesting insects come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some downright elegant and beautifully colorful, like the Orchid Mantis. Others look sort of like a Pok√©mon (the Jeweled Flower Mantis). Many, such as the Giant Shield Mantis, are totally safe to handle and pretty darn cute. The “typical mantis breeder or enthusiast”, according to the study, is male, 19-30-years-old, and purchases mantises mostly due to either personal curiosity or scientific interest. Buyers are usually willing to spend over $30 per mantis, and most prefer aesthetically pleasing species over rarer ones.

A person’s dependence on social media is best judged when major networks such as Facebook go down, a new study says. Penn State researchers analyzed reactions to a 6-hour Facebook outage, and found that users of the site flooded rival Twitter with nearly a quarter of a million tweets about the outage, quickly making #facebookdown a top trending topic. While many comments reflected anger about the situation and others ridiculed Facebook, users also expressed a need to find other social media outlets. Another top trending topic after the outage was “social media detox”. The researchers concluded that social media platforms need to look at outages as seriously as utility companies view blackouts, and prepare communication plans to help consumers navigate the outage.

If you’re tired of your burritos or wraps falling apart as you bite into them, this could be perfect for you. Students at Johns Hopkins University have developed a new edible food tape. The young engineering students — all women — created “Tastee Tape,” which comprises of “a food-grade fibrous scaffold and an organic adhesive” designed to keep the contents of your comfort food under control during cooking and consumption.


Fans of “The Office” might be disappointed to learn that the show was “almost” renewed to go on for a few more seasons . . . at least. Cast members Jenna Fischer (‘Pam’) and Angela Kinsey (‘Angela’) host a podcast for the series, where they talk about episodes of the show and answer fans’ questions about what happened backstage. In a recent interview about their new book, “The Office BFFs: Tales of The Office From Two Best Friends Who Were There,” the friends revealed that NBC offered the series 2 extra seasons. But at the time, several contracts had expired, and moving on without the rest of the cast would be “sad and wrong”, according to them. The show was first released in 2005 and wrapped up in 2013, after 9 seasons.

Will Smith says he’ll always stand by his family. Season 4 of Netflix’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman” premiered on Friday, with Smith visiting the couch in the second episode. The interview is full of tidbits from the actor’s life and career, and while Letterman’s interview with the 53-year-old took place before Smith stunned the world in March by slapping Chris Rock during the Oscars, one comment he made looks very prescient, in light of that occurrence. In his conversation with Letterman, Smith spoke about his parents’ contentious relationship, saying, “I’ve always thought of myself as a coward. When I was 9 years old, I saw my father beat up my mother, and I didn’t do anything. And that just left a traumatic impression of myself as a coward.”

America’s Got Talent” judge Howie Mandel’s obsessive-compulsive disorder has been the butt of jokes on the show, but it is a very real daily struggle for him. In a new interview, Mandel called OCD “debilitating”, explaining that some OCD patients create dangerous thoughts that may not be based in fact but can lead to rituals that “inhibit every aspect” of life. He said one of his symptoms is “obtrusive thoughts” that lead to obsessions where “You can’t show up. You can’t be productive. It’s mind-boggling.” Obsessive hand-washing has even led to him being late to events, Mandel said. He has joined NOCD, a website launched to help OCD patients. He hopes raising awareness will help inspire others to speak out about mental health struggles.

New technology that automatically slows your car down could someday make speed limit signs redundant, and automaker Ford says it could also make streets “simpler, safer and easier on the eye”, AND help drivers avoid costly speeding fines. “Geofencing” technology creates a virtual area where vehicles slow down. The driver receives the information on the dashboard display, with the new speed limit flashing below the current speed. The vehicle then automatically reduces speed; however the driver is able to override the system at any time. Ford is now conducting trials on the geofencing technology, which it says could also be used to set speed limits “dynamically”, to take into account factors such as local hazards, temporary road works and the time of day.

By now, everyone is familiar with the term ‘mansplaining’, when someone (usually a man) explains something in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing. Well, according to an article in The Guardian, guys should also be careful to stay away from something known as “hepeating”. The term, which is rapidly gaining popularity, comes from a 2017 tweet by US physics professor and astronomer Nicole Gugliucci, who says her friends came up with the word to describe “when a woman suggests an idea and it’s ignored, but then a guy says the same thing and everyone loves it.” She gave the usage examples: “Ugh! I got hepeated in that meeting again,” and “He totally hepeated me!” The concept was immediately recognized, with her original tweet getting 185k likes and 58.8k retweets. While “hepeating” hasn’t made it into the dictionary, like ‘mansplaining’ has, some believe it’s only a matter of time.

If you’re the type of person who has always struggled to solve a Rubik’s Cube, you’ll want to stay as far away from THIS as possible. The company MegaHouse has come up with what they call the “Rubik’s Cube Impossible”. You can see where I’m going with this. They say it’s the most challenging variant of the popular toy ever. It looks much like a classic Rubik’s Cube, with the only difference being the coloring. The difficulty of the Rubik’s Cube Impossible lies in the fact that all 54 facets (or colored stickers) are iridescent, meaning they change color when looked at from different angles. As you can imagine, that makes it much harder to solve. It’s recommended only for those who are seasoned enthusiasts, and it should be pointed out that Shuhei Omura, the 2009 Rubik’s Cube World Champion, struggled with it so much that he even asked the development team to confirm that his prototype was not defective. How much? $21.00

There’s nothing quite as relaxing as spending a summer evening gathered around a campfire with family and friends, some camping treats like ‘smores or hot dog wieners, a few drinks, and maybe a guitar. The problem? Those wonderful evenings usually also involve inhaling copious amounts of campfire smoke . . . because no matter where you sit, it seems to follow you around. Why is that? Physics. According to research scientist Kerry Anderson of Environment Canada, you’re not imagining things, and it’s all because hot air rises. When it does so, surrounding air is drawn into the fire to replace it. When you or I sit next to a fire, we create a barrier that blocks the air from being drawn in. So, the hot air that’s rising ends up being pulled into the area, often toward those sitting around the fire. How tall you are, your distance from the fire, and whether you’re wearing a big jacket or blanket, or sitting in a chair will affect the size of this barrier and how strongly the smoke will be pulled into your face. If you’re looking to enjoy a campfire this weekend, Anderson says you can minimize this phenomenon by having people position themselves evenly around the fire so the smoke isn’t drawn to any one individual.

Mercedes-Benz has sold a car for $142 million, the most ever paid for an automobile. The very rare 1955 Mercedes-Benz SLR coupe that had been kept in the German automaker’s collection was sold to a private owner on May 5 for 135 million euros, the equivalent of US $142 million. The previous record was $70 million paid in 2018 for a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO. The Mercedes was one of only two 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe prototypes. Money from the sale will be used to establish the Mercedes-Benz Fund, a global scholarship program.


This weekend, Tom Cruise has a chance to do something he’s never done before — open a film to more than $100 million at the domestic box office. The prolific actor, who has made a name for himself as a fearless stuntman, has generated more than $4.2 billion at the domestic box office since 1981, but has never had a film open to more than $65 million. After several pandemic-related delays, “Top Gun: Maverick” arrives in theaters this weekend with a 97% “Fresh” rating from Rotten Tomatoes and strong presale tickets. Box-office analysts are predicting a domestic opening of between $98 million and $125 million for the film.

Just when you thought the “Mission: Impossible” franchise couldn’t get any more intense, the first “Mission: Impossible 7” trailer has arrived, and it promises a positively epic new installment. “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One” finds Tom Cruise’s ‘Ethan Hunt’ running across the globe, getting into fights and defying gravity — and this sequel appears to be digging into the franchise’s past as it moves forward. Henry Czerny’s ‘Kittridge’ narrates the trailer, reprising his role as former IMF director from the very first Mission: Impossible film. There are also stunts that harken to the past, like Cruise fighting atop a speeding train. And the all-new action sequences include Cruise riding a motorbike off a cliff and using a parachute — a real, actual stunt Cruise did for the film. “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One” openson July 14, 2023.

Don’t you hate it when your bananas are ‘done’ before you’re done with them? Not only is it a waste of money to have to throw out your brown and mushy bananas, it’s also a waste of food, something we should all be very aware of these days. Well, get ready for a game-changer. Bananas that DON’T TURN BROWN could be on the way. The color-changing phenomenon has been slowed by scientists at Florida State University, offering hope for reducing tons of food waste. It’s a complicated fix, that we won’t go into detail about here, but bananas go soggy because of too much oxygen. The scientists found a way to slow formation of the spots by decreasing oxygen levels in their tiny formation sites. The research team says their discovery could help decrease the estimated 50 million tons of food waste which occurs annually as stores and consumers throw out bananas due to their unappetizing appearance.

Well, there goes another tradition down the pipes. Apparently the “black wedding dress” trend is a thing now. As wedding season approaches in earnest, sellers have noted a big uptick in interest in black bridal gowns. And Google trends says searches for “black wedding dress” have actually kept pace with searches for “white wedding dress” over the past year. A spokesperson for David’s Bridal, one of largest sellers of wedding gowns in the US, says black gowns are “chic and dramatic”. Why the surge in interest of ditching traditional white to join the dark side? Apparently, the concept of what is traditional has evolved to include other shades, possibly influenced by the pandemic. After some brides were forced to postpone their weddings due to COVID restrictions, they now want their special day to be unique. As a result, some are picking unique venues, some are wearing sneakers and having food trucks cater their weddings . . . and some have chosen to wear black.

Well, this is fun! A little weird, but fun! There’s a viral trend going around where people are grabbing a clothes hanger, opening it up, and sandwiching their head inside. Why? Because of an involuntary reaction. For many, when they wrap the hangar around their skull, they involuntarily move their head to one side – and can’t seem to resist, even when they expect it to happen. It turns out the so-called “hanger reflex” was first reported in 1991, and in a 2015 study, researchers studied 120 people, and observed head rotation in 95.8% of subjects. The effect is directional: You turn your head away from the hanger’s hook. We’re not sure what causes people to turn their head when there’s a hangar hanging off of it, but researchers say they may someday be able to use this knowledge to help patients with Dystonia, a movement disorder that causes abnormal muscle contraction.
