SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
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. With the new feature, called “Notes”, users can include text — up to 2,500 words — as well as photos, videos and GIFs in one post. 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.

A Florida man’ pregnant dog scored him a $2 million-winning lottery ticket. 42-year-old Leonard Linton of Pinetta is celebrating with his best friend, Ivy, thanks to a $10 scratch ticket he picked up because of the expecting dachshund. Linton got a call that Ivy was not feeling well so to get to her as quickly as possible, he took a different route home. Along that route, he made a quick stop at a convenience store where, unbeknownst to him at the time, he purchased the winning ticket. Linton calls the win “life-changing”, and says “I’m definitely getting Ivy a new kennel!”
