SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Many expecting couples choose to wait until birth to learn their child’s gender. But new research says it’s actually a better idea for parents to find out the baby’s sex as soon as possible. That’s because doctors say parents can be better equipped to protect their unborn child and themselves from potential pregnancy problems. Babies who are biologically male tend to have more pregnancy complications than girls because they grow faster and need more nutrients or oxygen. One in 10 women has life-threatening pregnancy problems, but many of these conditions are treatable if they are caught on time. The results of the current study by St. John’s College suggest knowing the sex could also have lifelong health benefits for the baby.

Zoom has announced that one-on-one video conferencing will now be limited to 40 minutes. Zoom Video Communications (the company) generously made calls unlimited during the pandemic, but all good things must come to an end. However, there are many other platforms available that do not have time restrictions, including Skype, Signal, WhatsApp, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Meta Messenger, all of which can facilitate almost any video conferencing need.


Two Michael Jackson musicals dominated nominations for the 75th annual Tony Awards on Monday, with newcomer composer Michael R. Jackson’s “A Strange Loop” leading with 11 nominations. “MJ: The Musical,” about the late King of Pop, and the 19th-century-set “Paradise Square” followed with 10 nods each. Familiar stars such as Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster (“The Music Man”), Billy Crystal (“Mr. Saturday Night”), Sam Rockwell (“American Buffalo”), Phylicia Rashad (“Skeleton Crew”) and Mary-Louise Parker (“How I Learned to Drive”) all received nominations. Winners will be announced at Radio City Music Hall in New York on June 12. Oscar winner Ariana DeBose will host.

The new ‘Dr. Who’ has been revealed. BBC has confirmed that 29-year-old “Sex Education” actor Ncuti Gatwa will succeed Jodie Whittaker. Fans have been speculating about who will replace her since her exit was announced in late 2021. Her run will officially end later this year with a feature-length special episode. The announcement was made hours before the BAFTA TV Awards, where Gatwa was up for Male Performance in a Comedy Programme for his role as Eric Effiong in “Sex Education.”

Queen Elizabeth’s never-seen-before home movies are set to feature in a new BBC documentary. The 96-year-old monarch’s life will be the focus of “Elizabeth: The Unseen Queen”, a 75-minute doc that will include behind-the-scenes footage from landmark moments in her reign. The BBC says the documentary, which airs May 29, “is an extraordinary glimpse into a deeply personal side of the royal family that is rarely seen, and it’s wonderful to be able to share it with the nation as we mark her Platinum Jubilee.” The home movies were mostly shot by members of the royal family and date as far back as the 1920s.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

The completion of a road construction project in Oregon resulted in the return of the world's smallest park -- now located about 6 inches from its former location. Mill End Park, a tiny patch of green in the median of Portland's Naito Parkway that received its first plants and its name from Oregon Journal reporter Dick Fagan in 1946, became a globally famous landmark as the world's smallest park when it received recognition from Guinness World Records in 1971. The tiny park was demolished as part of the Portland Bureau of Transportation's Better Naito Forever project, but Portland Parks & Recreation announced Mill End Park has now been reconstructed about 6 inches away from its former location. The park, which measures about 2 feet wide with a total surface area of 452 square inches, bears a new sign and a new cloverleaf park border. Portland Parks & Recreation said officials are hoping to hold a "rededication ceremony" for the park in the near future.

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

A woman who says she’s “addicted to helping people” won more than $145 million (£115 million) million in the lottery, allowing her to help a LOT of people. Making headlines around the UK and Ireland, Frances Connelly has already given away $74 million (£60 million) with her husband, “Patty” Patrick, who actually bought the winning ticket. 55-year-old Frances has been helping people since childhood, working as a St. John’s Ambulance volunteer, and she set up an AIDS helpline while a student in Belfast. She also runs several community groups, so winning the EuroMillions 2019 jackpot gave her all kinds of ideas on how to help people. She used some money to immediately set up 2 charities, and she has also donated about $13.5 million (£11 million) directly to other charities. The couple also bought a new house.
