Swinging your arms while running does nothing for your speed, according to a new study. While it is commonly believed that arm swinging propels a runner forward and acts as a counterbalance to the momentum of the legs, researchers from Southern Methodist University found that athletes who ran with their arms closed across their chests ran nearly as fast as when running with their normal arm motion.

Batwoman’s time in Gotham has come to an end. The CW has canceled the DC Comics drama after 3 seasons. Showrunner Caroline Dries shared the news on Friday, writing: “I am bummed, but full of gratitude. What an honor to make 51 episodes.” The cancellation comes a month after the third season finale aired. It also comes as The CW’s owners, Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global, are exploring a sale of the broadcaster, which has led to speculation that the network would pare back on scripted series.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A TikTok’er is warning people about a hotel room-service scam that cost a family $6,000. Ali Koca of Toronto told his 1.8 million followers that a family was staying at a hotel, and ordered room service using the dad’s debit card. In the clip, which has racked up almost 2 million views, Koca shares the family’s story in front of an image of a Holiday Inn Express, although the location of the incident hasn’t been made public. The story is that after calling to place a food order and providing the info from dad’s card, the family waited over 90 minutes before finally calling the front desk to ask where their order was. They were told an order from their room was never received. That’s when the man logged into his banking app to find more than $6,000 was missing from his account. It turned out that the room service menu they had ordered from was a fake, that had been slipped under their door by scammers. Koca went on to say” “Once you call and give them your card info, they can login to your account and take out all the money they want.” Online commenters agreed, saying this trick is more common than you’d expect.

A popular YouTuber has had his pilot license revoked after intentionally crashing his plane and filming his parachute escape for views. In Nov., Trevor Jacob, an Olympic snowboarder turned Youtuber, crashed his small propeller airplane into the mountains of California’s Los Padres National Forest. The exact moment his propeller stopped working was caught on camera, as was his jump from the plane and deployment of a life-saving parachute. Three weeks later, he posted a YouTube video titled “I Crashed My Plane”, which quickly went viral, amassing over 2 million views. Following a probe, the FAA revoked his license, pointing out that he never tried to restart the plane, and had attached multiple cameras to the exterior of the plane before takeoff.
