Show Notes for Thursday, June 30, 2022


Dear John,

My wife and I went on vacation for a few weeks. While we were gone, my neighbor's son had been parking his car in our driveway. He didn't ask for permission, and I normally wouldn't care, but he apparently had some sort of leak and left an oil stain in the driveway. I've tried to wash it away, but it's still there. I have a security camera that points to the driveway and you can see his car there and you can see there was no stain before and over the course of the week, it got worse and worse. I want to get him to pay to remove the stain. My wife said it really doesn't matter and it's not worth starting a feud with the neighbor over this. What do you think? Should he be responsible to fix this? Should I leave it alone?

Signed – Upset Neighbor

A study of adults found 55 per cent had been delighted with a product’s low price, only to realize it reflected the quality of the item bought. And 45 per cent have rushed home with a bargain picked up in a sale – only to deem it ‘useless’ later down the line. Common issues include buying a cheap item of clothing only for it to become misshapen in the wash after one wear or getting damaged the first time it is worn. An item not lasting as long as expected also leads to frustration, as does an upgrade being released just after buying a new piece of tech. 35 per cent have seen the same item elsewhere for even cheaper, after picking up something at what they thought was a knockdown price. Bargain hunters estimate they spend three hours and 20 minutes each month hunting for bargains, either online or in-store. More than four in 10 (44 per cent) even describe searching for reductions as a ‘vital’ part of their life. And just under six in 10 consider being savvy when scouring price stickers for bargains as something particularly British. A little under a fifth of those polled (16 per cent) have even camped outside a store overnight to ensure they were in pole position for a bargain. To keep abreast of the best possible savings, 29 per cent rely on consumer websites, while 19 per cent get their info from Instagram. The research conducted via OnePoll also found the average adult will spend $450 on sale items in any given year, with 53 per cent putting their purchases on a credit card.

Soon, you’ll be able to play “Wheel of Fortune” at home…and win stuff! The famous TV game show is set to become an online casino game. Production company Sony Pictures has joined forces with BetMGM, the mobile gaming company, and International Game Technology to produce the online “Wheel of Fortune Casino”, expected later this year. The online gaming extension, with real money wagering on branded Wheel of Fortune slot machines, comes as the TV game show franchise gets set for its 40th season, and the launch of about 250 Wheel of Fortune slot games. The long-running show will also be going on tour this fall, visiting 60 cities across the continent, beginning Sept. 8. Guests will have the chance to spin a replica of the legendary “Wheel of Fortune” and solve puzzles to win cash, gifts and trips.


Elvis” is in a virtual tie for #1 at the box office with “Top Gun: Maverick,” with both movies earning a projected weekend total of $30 million. That would mean Baz Luhrmann’s biopic on The King of Rock and Roll would match pre-weekend projections, but Elvis still has a way to go before it reaches profitability, with a reported $85 million budget. The film is performing consistently with other summer music biopics by attracting older audiences. Warner reports that 60% of opening day crowds for “Elvis” were over the age of 35 while 43% were over 50.

The Voice” may be making a big change to its schedule. Reportedly, while The Voice moved to one cycle per year for 2022, NBC is considering going back to 2 seasons per year. According to Monsters and Critics, there are a few indicators: The show that served as The Voice’s replacement in the spring, “American Song Contest”, didn’t do very well in the ratings. So, it is rumored that NBC wants to bring back The Voice in its previous spring timeslot. Additionally, The Voice announced an open call for contestants on various June dates. Even though it may appear as though this would be for the upcoming fall season, that’s apparently not the case, as casting for the fall season has already been completed and filming for blind auditions has begun.

Canadians craving a pop of dough this year reached for Chocolate Glazed the most, Tim Hortons says, as the company’s Timbits mark their 45th anniversary this year. Birthday Cake, Honey Dip, Old Fashioned Plain and Sour Cream Glazed rounded out the top five in Canada overall. A regional breakdown also found Chocolate Glazed at the top — except in Atlantic Canada, where Old Fashioned Plain was the main choice. The country’s other four favourite flavours shuffled order but rounded out the top five lists in Western Canada, Ontario and Atlantic Canada. In Quebec, however, Tim Hortons customers were reaching for Strawberry Filled and Old Fashioned Glaze instead of Sour Cream Glazed and Old Fashioned Plain, according to the province’s top five list. When it comes to Timbiebs — the recently released Timbits flavors developed in collaboration with Stratford singer Justin Bieber — the company says Chocolate White Fudge has emerged as Canada’s top pick.

The role of chef, the amount of mess - and the amount of hot spices added to meals are among the most common dinner disputes, according to a study. Researchers also discovered things can get heated amid bust-ups over someone's attempt to interfere in their other half's culinary creation - and even what is for dinner. A study of men and women in relationships revealed the top 20 disagreements couples have on a daily basis including who should have to wash up and whether the meal is 'unhealthy'. Lack of inspiration and variety when it comes to what to eat for dinner are at the heart of many dinner time disagreements with many couples complaining they eat the same meals time after time, and the dishes are always boring. It also emerged the average couple will talk about what to eat for the evening meal for at least 10 minutes every day – or the equivalent of 61 hours across the average year.

This started as a really neat, fun story. Then it took a dark turn. Your Amazon Alexa may soon be able to replicate real, human voices. That sounds great. Until you realize that includes the voices of dead people. Amazon announced the new feature at the annual Re:Mars conference, which focuses on innovation in artificial intelligence. The update to Alexa’s system would allow the virtual assistant to mimic the voice of any person, based on less than a minute of recording. In a demonstration, the company played a video showing a young boy asking: “Alexa, can Grandma finish reading me the Wizard of Oz?” Alexa acknowledges the request, and switches to a voice mimicking the child’s grandmother to read the book. Amazon says it began working on this feature to put more “human attributes of empathy” into the Alexa system, but online reaction wasn’t having it, with one woman tweeting: “one of the creepiest suggestions I’ve heard in a long time. A key part of processing loss is letting go. Having my dead father tell me its time to take a cake out of the oven or that 2m is 6ft 7″ would be incredibly weird.”

UNICEF said it received the funds minutes after the bidding ended. The previous record for a Nobel was $4.76 million.

Getting a great education doesn’t just help people be more successful today, it may also keep them alive longer in the future. A new study finds that people with a stronger academic background show fewer signs of age-related mental decline during old age.

While people born during the spring and summer months tend to have "excessively positive temperaments," they're also "more likely to experience rapid shifts in mood," according to 2011 research published in the Journal of Affective Disorder. On the other hand, those who made their entrance into the world during winter are "less likely to have irritable temperaments."

Science is finally backing up what you’ve long known: that smoking weed does, in fact, make you nicer — and less greedy, to boot.

Donna Mills claims to be the blueprint for Grease’s ‘Sandy’. The TV icon, who is famous for her “Dallas” spin-off series “Knots Landing”, shared a video in which she dresses up as the character from the 1978 movie musical, a role made famous by Olivia Newton-John. In the clip, Mills says she was the “model” for the character. In the caption, she wrote: “Does the character Sandy from Grease look similar to me? Here’s why! Did you know that I went to school with Jim Jacobs?”, the musical’s co-writer. Mills added with a laugh that he “used me as his model for Sandy.” She goes on to say: “I didn’t know it at the time, but I found out years later, I was the original Sandy.”

Michael Jackson’s estate claims in a lawsuit that a man engaged to one of his siblings used the chaos surrounding his death to steal a large amount of property from the singer’s home. Jackson’s estate says Jeffre Phillips started staying at the home right after Jackson died on June 25, 2009 and made off with items, including Jackson’s iPhone video cameras, and computers, his drivers license, prescription pills and some clothes, plus handwritten notes and a briefcase filled with personal and business papers. The lawsuit does not specify which of Michael’s siblings Phillips was engaged to.

With gas prices at or near all-time highs, we need all the help we can get when it comes to minimizing costs. So, what about that little “eco” button on your car’s dashboard? Does it really do anything, aside from illuminate a little green leaf on the display? Sheldon Williamson, Professor at the Automotive Center of Excellence at Ontario Tech University, says that while some car makers claim eco mode may help you realize as much as 10-12% in fuel savings, most of us aren’t going to save that much, but it’s still worth it. Higher end luxury cars packed with more technological advances may be more likely to reach the 12% savings threshold, but most vehicle owners will experience a savings of about 5%. For most vehicles, eco mode is most effective when cruising on the highway at a steady speed, travelling through the city under normal conditions, driving across flat terrain, when nothing is being towed and when you don’t need maximum air conditioning.

Most people have facial plastic surgery because they’re hoping to shave a decade or so off their perceived age. But a study found that the average amount of “years saved” is only three. In fact, if your plastic surgeon tells you he can make you look X years younger, you might look for a new one. There’s no guarantee of how many years younger you’ll look, which is why reputable plastic surgeons should tell you their work will make you look less tired and more refreshed.

UK police were flabbergasted after attempting to save what they thought was an elderly woman in distress — only to discover that the “victim” was actually a parrot yelling “help!” West Midlands Police received a report of an elderly person “shouting for help” inside her house in Sutton Coldfield. But when the team knocked in the door, they found the property empty, aside from a parrot in a cage in the living room. Soon after, the woman’s son arrived and told them that the bird was the one making the distress cries. A tweet from the police force detailing the hilarious mixup is currently blowing up on Twitter, complete with a pic of an officer posing with the pranking parrot. LINK:

A wedding nightmare turned into a Celtic dream when, after a plane-load of problems, the local community on the Isle of Skye lent a hand. Amanda and Paul Riesel flew over 4,000 miles from Florida, to Scotland, only to find out their luggage was missing – including their wedding dress and suit. The couple had spent almost $15,000 on the trip, which they had been planning for over 2 years. They were ready to call the whole wedding off until photographer Rosie Woodhouse, appealed to locals to help. Within hours, Amanda had been offered a selection of 8 wedding dresses in her size, and Paul was given a kilt. The bride-to-be had luckily carried the wedding rings and flowers in her carry-on. In another kind gesture, the photographer even invited the couple to her friend’s house for a meal because most restaurants were closed. Afterward, Amanda called the couple’s big day “imperfectly perfect.”

A stressful day at work could change the way you speak. That’s according to a study from Germany, which found a link between work stressors and increased speech rate and voice intensity. Researchers at the University of Augsburg and Saarland University said the findings show that the voice could be “an early indicator of potentially problematic stress levels.” Study participants used their smartphones to send voice notes daily at the end of a work shift. Analysis of the recordings using computer software showed distinguishable changes in people’s voices on the days that they reported more stress factors. Researchers said increased stress levels activated the sympathetic nervous system, which in turn stimulates the production of adrenalin and cortisol. High levels of stress are associated with a range of health concerns, including cardiovascular diseases and mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.

Even dim light can disrupt sleep, raising the risk of serious health issues in older adults, a new study has found. Phyllis Zee, chief of sleep medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, says her team found “Exposure to any amount of light during the sleep period was correlated with the higher prevalence of diabetes, obesity and hypertension in both older men and women.” Further concerning matters is the fact that researchers were surprised to find that fewer than half of the people in the study regularly slept in darkness for at least 5 hours per night. The same team found earlier this year that among adults in their 20s, those who slept for even one night with a dim light, such as a muted TV, experienced higher blood pressure and a raised heart rate.


Michael J. Fox will be given an honorary Oscar Award for his years of advocacy on behalf of Parkinson’s Disease patients. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that Fox will be given the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, which is presented to individuals who make “indelible contributions to cinema and the world at large.” Fox has suffered from Parkinson’s Disease himself since 1991. Other recipients of the award this year will include filmmaker Euzhan Palcy, songwriter Diane Warren and director Peter Weir. They will be presented at the Governors Awards on Nov. 19.

Director Scott Derrickson was almost certain that Ethan Hawke would never agree to star in his new horror movie “The Black Phone.” But after getting Hawke on board, Derrickson said he now feels Hawke’s chilling, complex and sadistic performance in the film is part of an ongoing transformation for the actor, which he likens to the “McConaissance,” the so-called career transformation in the early 2010s when Matthew McConaughey went from a rom-com star to a sensational, Oscar-winning actor and beyond. Quote: “I think Ethan’s kind of having one of those moments right now where he’s really playing above the rim. He’s taking risky roles and doing things that are so daring and unique and different than what he’s done in the past.” The Black Phone hits theaters last week.

An effective new weight-loss pill could be on the way. Researchers at Stanford University say they have found an “anti-hunger” molecule, called Lac-Phe, which is normally only produced after an intense workout. After giving obese mice this molecule, they were not only found to have eaten 30% less, but also weighed less in the long term, and had a lower percentage of body fat and improved blood sugar regulation. The research could lead to the creation of a “a fat-fighting pill”, which would be used to “suppress appetite for those who cannot easily exercise because of other conditions (such as) aging or bone issues.”

Twitter is testing out a new feature that will let people go over the 280-character limit in a single piece of content.

The Note card will show up in the Twitter timeline as a tweet that contains a preview of what’s in the longer post. Twitter has launched a public test of Notes with a small group of writers from the U.S., U.K., Canada and Ghana.

Are you starting to plan your next family vacation? Get busy. Vacations are more enjoyable for the whole family when they’re well-planned out in advance. That’s according to a new survey of 2,000 American parents, which found that when preparing for vacations, 1 in 4 say they are the “planners” of their family — the ones who keep everyone on track and organized. Meanwhile, others name their partner or co-parent as an “agent of chaos” who always seems to cause trouble (18%) or is always running late (17%). The poll, for Chase IHG Rewards Credit Cards, also found that 76% of families are able to plan out their entire itinerary within 6 hours over a span of a few days. And six in 10 (61%) families start planning at least 5 weeks in advance. On the other hand, 28% are still frantically getting ready up to the very last minute. More than half (55%) haven’t had a vacation in at least 3 years – but 70% are planning to take one within the next 18 months.

Fans of “Jeopardy!” are buzzing on Twitter about a potential new host.

British cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva says that by using digital facial-mapping technology, he was able to determine that Heard’s face is exactly 91.85% perfect — that’s almost as good as it gets. Bella Hadid scored highest of all well-known beauties (94.35%), followed by BeyoncĂ©, Heard, and Ariana Grande.
