SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Researchers from Yale have found that music fans who attend festivals such as Burning Man or Coachella find themselves “transformed” by their experiences – in a good way. Those who say they felt transformed by the gathering reported feeling more connected to humanity and were more likely to help strangers. The lead author of the study said: “We’ve long known that festivals, pilgrimages, and ceremonies make people feel more bonded with their own group. (The study found) that experiences at secular mass gatherings also have the potential to expand the boundaries of moral concern beyond one’s own group.”

Everyone agrees that the right song can brighten even the darkest of days, but new research says “groovy” music can even enhance brain function!

Could wedding bells ringing this summer for J-Lo? Jennifer Lopez wants to marry Ben Affleck “sooner rather than later”, according to a source. The pair are still unsure when they will tie the knot but she would be OK with getting hitched “as early as this summer” after they shared their intention to get married last month. The 2 got back together in 2021, after calling off their first engagement in 2004. US Weekly reports that an insider with knowledge indicates that Lopez “wants the formalities out of the way so they can start their journey as man and wife sooner rather than later.” And added she would say “she’s not in a rush to get married, but her friends think otherwise. The truth is that if Ben wanted to push this forward as early as this summer, she’d be totally down with that.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by


Breeze: Almost any breeze above 1mph (1.6kph) makes it difficult for them to fly. Pick a breezy spot outdoors…aim a fan on you at night. It works better than those fancy ultrasonic devices and apps.

Stay Cool: Mosquitos are drawn to you by the pheromones released in your sweat, so cool off and don’t sweat. Yes, easier said than done in the summer.

Give your heart a breather: They also search for carbon dioxide to identify food sources. Exercise, alcohol, and spicy foods all increase CO2 production.

Plant plants: Certain plants discourage mosquitos from hanging around your house. Those include citronella, lavender, marigolds, lemongrass and basil.

Get rid of standing water: Mosquitos can breed in small containers of water like a birdbath or even water sitting around your plants…and so can some viruses common to mosquitos.

Wear tightly woven, light-colored clothes: Mosquitos can’t penetrate material with a very tight weave. Many synthetic fibers, like hi-tech athletic apparel, tend to resist them.

Avoid scented products: Any scented perfume, lotion, or soap could attract them.

Dwayne Johnson’s daughter Simone Johnson has shared her professional wrestling name ahead of her WWE debut. Following in the footsteps of her father ‘The Rock’, 20-year-old Simone signed a deal with WWE in 2020, but her debut was postponed after she suffered injuries that required surgery. Recently, she shared her wrestling moniker, “Ava Raine”, on social media. And of course, some people criticized her for not making it clearer that she is connected to the Rock. She was having none of it, though, shooting back that she “could build my entire career around my father & people would still bash me anyway.” She’s actually a 4th-generation wrestler. Simone’s grandfather and great-grandfather were also pro wrestlers.
