SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Maybe sometimes, when it’s too hot in your bedroom, or when you’d just prefer to be able to S-T-R-E-T-C-H right across the mattress, you look back longingly on your “sleeping-single” days. Well, this might surprise you: According to a new study, having a sweetheart to cozy up to can actually help you get a better sleep. Researchers from the University of Arizona found that those who share a bed with a spouse or partner experience better-quality sleep than those who sleep by themselves, and may even have a lower risk of issues such as insomnia and sleep apnea. However, those who often share a bed with a child reported higher levels of insomnia, less control over their sleep and have a greater risk of apnea.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

If you REALLY love your cat, you might as well start saving for a new couch now. A team of veterinary psychologists says that coddled cats are more likely to tear up furniture. Researchers at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil say they determined that tolerance for this type of “unacceptable behavior” could be a sign of a strong human-feline bond. According to their report, published in the Journal of Veterinary Behavior, “Evidence supports that cats’ behavior influences the level of emotional closeness between the animals and the owners,” and “owners of cats that do not scratch the furniture had a lower level of emotional closeness compared to those reporting this inappropriate behavior.” Researchers believe the “surprising” correlation indicates that clawing at couches is considered an “expected and tolerable” cat habit by those who love them most.

Many hardcore golfers go their entire life without ever sinking a hole-in-one. Frank Kowalski did it twice – in the same round. It all started with his first swing of the day. He was running late for his weekly outing at Bentley Village Golf Club last month in Naples, Florida, so he didn’t have time to practice. Using a sand wedge on the 7th hole where his group was starting, he hit a hole-in-one. Then on hole #15 — one of the trickiest on the course – he scored another ace with a 5 wood. The 74-year-old described it as the most exciting day he has ever experienced on the greens.
