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.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

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.

Although the use of GPS is free, it costs $2 million per day to operate. The money comes from American taxpayers.

A slinky, when stretched completely flat, is 67 feet (20.4m) long.

Kleenex was originally invented as a filter for use in gas masks due to a WWI cotton shortage.

On average, a 150-pound (68kg) person burns 114 calories per hour while standing and doing nothing.

A wildlife technician once calculated that a woodchuck would chuck 700 pounds of wood if it “could chuck wood”.

Herring fish communicate through flatulence.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

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.
