SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
What is the key to feeling happier at work? “Summer Fridays” would do the trick, according to a new poll. What are summer Fridays? That’s when workers are allowed a short day or day off on occasional Fridays during the season. 59% of 2,000 working adults surveyed said their jobs offer Summer Fridays, and over 8 in 10 agreed that it makes them feel much happier at work (Duh!). The survey, commissioned by Wisetail, drilled deep into the impact weather has on our on-the-job effectiveness, with 73% saying they believe it directly affects their productivity. Cool temps and clear blue skies were associated with being most productive at work, and heavy rain and freezing temperatures were seen as the root cause of unproductive workdays. Time is also a factor. In order to have the “best day” at work, the average person needs to wake up at 7:30am, while rising at 8:30am is considered the “worst” way to start off the day.

Mosquitoes learn to dodge pesticides – after just a single exposure. A study by scientists at Keele University in England and the University of Science, Malaysia shows the insects are more intelligent than previously thought. It was found that they recognize the smell of pesticides after being exposed to it once, and steer clear, rendering it ineffective. The authors wrote: “Understanding learning and memory is important for insects that transmit human diseases, because behavior such as host finding and blood-feeding have critical implications for…disease transmission. Mosquito-transmitted diseases include malaria, chikungunya, dengue, yellow fever, Zika and West Nile.

Is Joaquin Phoenix getting ready to reapply his makeup? This week, director Todd Phillips alluded on Instagram that a follow-up to the 2019 film “Joker” is in pre-production. The 2-part post opened with the red cover of a script titled “Joker: Folie à Deux”. The binder was dated May 18 and featured his name next to Scott Silver, with whom he co-wrote the first Joker screenplay. A second shot showed Phoenix, who won the Best Actor Oscar in 2020 for his role as ‘Arthur Fleck’ and his alter ego in the first film – casually reading the script on a couch while smoking a cigarette. The title Joker: Folie à Deux, which references a delusion or mental illness shared by 2 people, also suggests that Joker may also team up with another supervillain – possibly his sometime-girlfriend ‘Harley Quinn’, most recently played by Margot Robbie. No word on a release date.
Dave Chappelle is giving back following his weekend performance in Buffalo. The comedian is making what will be a sizeable donation to the families of victims who were killed in that city’s recent mass shooting. Chappelle hit the stage Sunday at the Shea’s Performing Arts Center, and it has been confirmed that he is giving all the money from ticket sales at the 3,000-seat venue back to the Buffalo community directly affected by the May 14 tragedy. The decision to do the stand-up gig in Buffalo was last minute – Chapelle announced it on Wednesday, and tickets sold out within an hour.
SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
Thousands of workers in the UK are in the midst of a 4-day work week – with no cut in pay — in the largest trial of its kind. The pilot, which will last for 6 months, involves 3,300 workers spanning 70 companies, ranging from providers of financial services to a fish-and-chips restaurant. Workers will receive 100% of their pay for working only 80% of their usual week, in exchange for promising to maintain 100% productivity. The program is being run by not-for-profit 4 Day Week Global, Autonomy, a think tank, and the 4 Day Week UK Campaign in partnership with researchers from Cambridge University, Oxford University and Boston College. The researchers will measure the impact the new working pattern has on productivity levels, gender equality, the environment, as well as worker well-being.
Apple has just announced the exciting news (to people who get excited about stuff like this…) that the upcoming iOS 16 will give users the ability to edit and “unsend” messages. You’ll also have the option to mark messages as “unread”, which has been possible on rival messaging service WhatsApp for a while. Why would you want these features? During an announcement about the new iPhone update, software engineering senior VP Craig Federighi said the “unread” feature will be perfect for users who don’t have “time to respond in the moment and want to be sure to come back to a message later.” The ability to edit or unsend a text will be available for up to 15 minutes after the message is initially sent. Reaction on social media was, as you can imagine, ruthless, with one person writing: “iMessage getting an edit button will forever change screenshots of conversations.” Another posted: “I can’t wait to send a risky text then change it to a motivational scripture if she doesn’t respond in 3 minutes.”

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
A Christmas card-like scene was captured a German town, despite the fact that the temperature was in the 70s F (20s C). That was the situation in Weiler-Simmerberg after an intense storm covered the streets with hailstones that accumulated to several feet. Video footage captured Sunday shows tractors plowing the hail as if it were snow. Fortunately, those balmy temps helped quickly melt the fallen hailstones. The piles of hail came from thunderstorms that erupted across parts of western and central Europe this past weekend. The storms also dropped hail the size of tennis balls and softballs from France to Austria. LINK: https://tinyurl.com/3zsfjbkw

WORDS AND PHRASES THAT SHOW YOUR AGE:
✓ “Surfing the web”: Use of this phrase peaked in 2004. If that seems relatively recent to you, remember — for Gen Z, it was literally a lifetime ago!
✓ “Chesterfield”: Your grandkids have no idea that by “chesterfield,” you mean “couch”.
✓ “Heavens to Betsy!”: Well, of course. NEVER say this phrase, except sarcastically, using your “old person” voice.
✓ “Kodak moment”: If you use it, you’re probably old enough to remember when people only took pics on special occasions.
✓ “Psych!”: This slang interjection basically means “Just kidding!” If you’re still saying it, you probably REALLY miss the 1990s.
✓ “Going steady”: I’m not even sure teenagers “date” anymore. These days, apparently, they “hang out,” which means “going steady” sounds terribly old-fashioned.
✓ “Talk to the hand”: Yup. Back to the 90s again.
whoopee”: This euphemism for sex was popularized by the 1928
jazz/blues song of the same name. There are tons of MUCH more
interesting modern phrases to choose from!
