Show Notes for Thursday, August 11, 2022


Dear John,

We recently moved to my husband's hometown. His parents are getting older and we will be caring for them. I started my new job and I found out that my husband used to be a bully in school and my manager was one of the kids he picked on. I feel like I'm being punished for stuff that my husband did when he was a young dumb kid. I asked my husband about it. He said he feels bad for his actions from back in high school. I asked him to apologize to my manager. He said that would be pointless and may even cause more problems for me at work. He suggested I find a different job. What do you think? Should I just move on? Is it too much to ask my husband to apologize to the man he picked on as a kid? He said he felt bad about it. Why wouldn't he say it to him? I think it would make a big difference for my manager. What do you think?

A study has found that the pandemic allowed teens to sleep more, reducing COVID-related stress. McGill University researchers started looking into the sleep patterns of 62 students at a Montreal high school in early 2020. In the middle of the study, the pandemic hit, and online or hybrid learning emerged, along with a completely different schedule. That meant the scientists were able to study the difference between the sleep teens were getting before the pandemic and during it. With no commute, a later start, and no extra-curricular activities, teens were suddenly on the sleep schedule their bodies naturally need. The team found that teenagers became generally more alert and less stressed, which helped them better navigate the pandemic.

It pays to tweet. A new study says executives who self-promote regularly on Twitter are more likely to receive job offers with high salaries than those who don’t promote their brand online. The research, carried out by McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin — determined that executives who promote their expertise and qualifications on Twitter are 32% more likely to attract higher-paying job offers after interviews. The flipside? Poorly-written tweets can backfire on executive candidates if hiring managers don’t like what they see.


Kevin Smith is buying the movie theater that made him fall in love with filmmaking. The 52-year-old New Jersey native is purchasing the Atlantic Moviehouse in Atlantic Highlands, where his father brought him as a child, sometimes allowing him to cut school. The filmmaker, who announced the news on Instagram, is expected to close the deal on the property, which he will co-own with his wife, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith and other business partners, on Sept. 14. Plans include renovating the 250-seat interior of the theater, and erecting a mural in the lobby featuring characters from his movies such as “Clerks” and “Mallrats”, which were set in New Jersey. Smith also intends to live in the apartment above the theater, a twist on his childhood dream of living in a movie theater.

Kevin Smith has spoken out against Warner Bros.’ axing of “Batgirl”. During the latest episode of his “Hollywood Babble-On” YouTube show, the filmmaker called it “an incredible bad look” for the studio to drop the comic book tentpole, which was to be headlined by a Latina actor, especially when Warner Bros. is still moving forward on the release of its Ezra Miller-led “The Flash.” Smith said that he wasn’t concerned even if it was a horrible movie, and, quote, “I guarantee you that it wasn’t. The two directors…did a couple of episodes of ‘Ms. Marvel,’ and it was a wonderful…show and they had more money to do Batgirl.” Warner announced Aug. 2 that it would not be releasing the $90 million Batgirl in theaters or on HBO Max despite the movie being fully shot and in post-production.

If you’ve still got a road trip or 2 planned before the end of summer, here’s a piece of advice: Ditch the GPS. A memory expert in Montreal says she’s found an association between “habitual” use of GPS and spatial memory deterioration. Véronique Bohbot, a scientist at the Douglas Research Centre and a professor of psychiatry at McGill University, says her research shows that degradation of spatial memory is correlated to the frequency of GPS use. According to her, the hippocampus, which is the part of the brain involved in spatial memory, is also involved in other types of memory, learning and emotional behavior. That means people who have better spatial memory have better cognition and less risk of Alzheimer’s disease. She says humans have their own built-in GPS-like capabilities, and using it is good for our brain health. While it may seem impractical to swear off using a GPS on your next road trip, Bohbot suggests turning it off and trying to find your own way home after reaching your destination, or looking at the route before leaving to determine if you’re comfortable trying to find your own way.

Britney Spears has hit back at Kevin Federline after he revealed his sons with the pop star haven’t seen their mother “for months”. In an interview, Federline claimed their teen sons Sean Preston and Jayden had “decided” they didn’t want to see their mother or attend her recent wedding to Sam Asghari, and suggested they were embarrassed by her revealing Instagram posts. On her Instagram Story, Brit called the comments “hurtful”, writing: “It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children…it concerns me the fact that the reason is based on my Instagram … it was LONG before Instagram … I gave them every thing…My mother told me ‘You should GIVE them to their dad’ … I’m sharing this because I can … Have a good day folks!!!”

A former housekeeper at a 4-star hotel has a list of things you should never touch when staying in a hotel room. TikTok user @_sourqueen detailed some slack cleaning processes, saying: “I’ve seen some things. I have some horror stories.” For starters, she says when staying at a hotel, you should never use the coffee pot or any of the glassware. Why? “Usually, the housekeeper just rinses these…in the bathroom sink, and dries them off with the same rag that they used to clean the rest of the room”. Other things to avoid, according to the video, which has been viewed more than 534,000 times:

The ice bucket: Guests sometimes use them as “water dishes for their pets and whatnot” – or worse. She said, “I don’t even want to talk about that.”

The bedspread: She says they are only washed once a year, unless someone has bled, puked, (or worse) on them. She suggests you take it off the bed “the minute you walk in there.”

Although @_sourqueen acknowledged not every hotel operates the same as the one she worked at, a lot of people messaged her saying they had found the same level of cleanliness where they worked. The TikToker also pointed out that she feels part of the problem is housekeepers get in trouble if they take too long cleaning a room or for sending too much laundry to be cleaned. LINK:

Douglas Robert and Tamíris Muzini were ready for their big wedding day, but it was also the day that Tamíris would find out there was someone else. As the blushing bride arrived at the church in Brazil, she noticed a wedding crasher had come by—a stray blonde dog that was mingling gently with guests. No problem…the ceremony eventually commenced — with the dog sitting down by the doorway to watch, as if he knew what was happening. As the newly-married couple headed for the exit, the dog suddenly became excited. As the bride put it, “When he greeted us at the end, he asked: ‘Take me home.’” They decided in that very moment to make their happily ever after fit for 3. They adopted the scrawny pooch, and named it Braiá Caramelo. Braiá’s scars suggest his road to the church had not been an easy one, but that’s all behind him now. Muzini says the loving pooch “gives us hope”.

When that dreaded warning light appears on your car’s dashboard, how long does it take until you head to the mechanic for service? If you’re a young adult, it seems you’ll wait…until you have a whole collection of them. According to a OnePoll survey of Gen Zers and millennials (born between 1991 and 2012), it takes an average of EIGHT warning lights for people to schedule vehicle maintenance. 27% said that in light of inflation and the current economic landscape, they’re OK to disregard and continue driving with a broken radio, and 26% can ignore dull wipers, excessive emissions, low tire pressure light, oil change, or scratches on their vehicle. On average, it takes 5 breakdowns for Gen Zers and millennials to buy a new car. They say they’ll eventually stop driving their car and get a new one when the upkeep surpasses their budget (39%), or when there are too many strange sounds or smells (38%) — or when too much of it is being held together by tape (37%).

If your neighbor has a home security system, you might want to close the blinds — fast! According to a poll, many people aren’t just using their surveillance cameras to keep the house safe – they also use it to spy on the neighbors. In a survey of more than 1,000 Americans who have home security cameras, one in 4 people admit to using their cameras to peek at what their neighbors are up to. And one in 7 confessed that, at some point, their system has caught a neighbor walking around naked. And it turns out Gen X homeowners are most likely to use their cameras to spy on others. Younger respondents actually use their cameras for the exact opposite purpose. Three in 10 Gen Z respondents said they use their security system mainly to avoid people who knock on their door.


Anne Heche is in stable condition and expected to survive following the fiery accident that left her severely burned Friday. A rep for the 53-year-old said: “Her family and friends ask for your thoughts and prayers and to respect her privacy during this difficult time.” That came a day after the “Six Days Seven Nights” actress crashed her blue Mini Cooper into several buildings before it caught fire. Video obtained by TMZ shows the movie star *quote* “driving like a maniac” down a residential LA street before crashing into a parking garage. Bystanders tried to help her out of her vehicle, but she reportedly backed up and drove off before crashing into another home, triggering an explosion and an engulfing fire.

Anne Heche will have to give a blood sample to police after crashing her car into a home in Los Angeles. The LAPD received a warrant to test the “Six Days, Seven Nights” star’s blood to see if she was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at the time of the crash, according to reports. Police believe Heche was intoxicated when she plowed her blue Mini Cooper into a house Friday and sustained severe burns after the vehicle caught fire, but blood test results could take weeks. Sources say that, at the minimum, the LAPD will refer Heche’s case to the LA City attorney, who could press hit-and-run charges, as she reportedly slammed into a garage and drove off before driving into the nearby house.

Étienne Klein, a celebrated physicist and director at France’s Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, shared the image of the spicy Spanish sausage, praising the “level of detail” it provided, considering that it is “located 4.2 light years away from us.”.

A drought-proof weed may hold the key to feeding the world, according to new research. The common plant known as purslane, harbors important clues about how to create valuable drought-resistant crops. Yale scientists describe how it integrates 2 distinct metabolic pathways to create a novel type of photosynthesis that enables the weed to endure drought while remaining highly productive. Understanding these novel metabolic pathways could help scientists devise new ways to engineer crops such as corn to help withstand prolonged drought.

Couples who sleep apart may not only be saving their relationship, but saving their health as well, according to a survey by the Better Sleep Council. Their research found that more than 25% of couples have gone through a “sleep divorce”, where they either sleep in different rooms or in 2 beds in the same room. The older you are, the more likely you are to sleep apart, with 16% of those 55-and-older saying they sleep in separate bedrooms. That’s more than double those who are 35-54 (7%), and significantly higher than those in the 18-34 group (3%). While many believe sleeping in separate beds is a sign that a relationship is on the rocks, it’s actually the opposite. The survey found 1 in 3 people say their bed partner has a negative impact on their own sleep. Sleep deprivation is connected to health issues including diabetes, obesity, heart disease and depression, as well as irritability, poorer job satisfaction and, yes, relationship woes. The survey found that women’s sleep suffers more than men’s, because “women are more sensitive to their sleep environment.”

Bald may be beautiful, but most people would rather keep their hair. And now, thanks to some researchers in China, it may be possible to get it back. They have developed a patch which can prevent baldness in both men and women. Male pattern baldness becomes permanent because the body doesn’t have enough blood vessels surrounding the hair follicles to deliver the necessary nutrients. The scientists came up with a microneedle patch that stimulates the formation of new blood vessels around the follicles, leading to hair regrowth. In tests on mice, it led to faster hair regrowth and similar coverage in comparison to a leading topical treatment for baldness. Topical hair treatments also need to be applied more frequently than the patch.

My Grand Mother always cooked tasty food. But one day, she put a burnt pie in front of my Grandpa.

Not just a little burnt, but black as coal.

I waited to see what my Grandpa would say.

But he just ate the pie and asked how my day was.

Then i heard my Grand Mother apologize to him for his dinner.

I'll never forget his response.

"Dear, I like your pie."

Later, I asked him if he had told the truth.

He put his arm on my shoulder and said, "Your Grandma had a tough day at work."

"She was tired."

"The burnt pie didn't harm me but, a sharp word could have hurt her."

We all make mistakes.

We shouldn't focus on mistakes but, support those we love.

That's the secret of long and happy relationships...

A 29-year-old man has been charged with criminal aggravated trespassing after allegedly riding a school bus to Grainger County High School last year. According to the arrest report, a Grainger County Sheriff’s deputy was called to the main office at Grainger County High School. Upon arrival, the deputy spoke to Juan Purkey, who told him he had ridden a school bus to the school. The Grainger County Superintendent, James Atkins, said, “Safety is of the utmost importance.” The 29-year-old allegedly made his way to the cafeteria and was taken to the office at 8 a.m. where the deputy found him. The school was placed on a soft lockdown. Purkey is not a student at the high school, nor did he have permission from anyone to be on school property. To that, he also had no lawful purpose to be on school property during school hours. One week earlier, Purkey was informed by a deputy, and an assistant principal at the school to not be on school property since he wasn’t a student. He was also told that if he came to school he would be charged with criminal trespass.

Wrinkly shirt? It might sound like a paradox but just throw it in the dryer with a few ice cubes for five minutes. Wrinkles gone!

After a nice, long hot shower, most of us usually have the same problem: the bathroom mirror is too fogged up for you to shave or brush or whatever. Instead of trying to wipe all that moisture off, just give it a quick blast of hot air from a hair dryer. After a few seconds, you’ll be able to use your mirror as it was originally intended.

Most wine bottles come with a foil wrapper on top that, often, is hard to get off. Many of you wine experts may already know this, but for the rest of you: don’t try to unwrap the foil. Use a cork screw! Just drill right through the foil, twist, and pull—you’ll be enjoying your wine in no time.

Respondents said the best chicken wings are deep-fried (55%) or grilled (51%) and tossed in barbecue sauce (39%), ranch seasoning (34%) or hot buffalo sauce (33%).

City life is making animals fatter, according to new research. As urbanization causes many animals to lose their natural habitats and end up running through local neighborhoods, a study has found that although scientists have long believed that this process ends up making animals smaller, it’s actually leading to larger and more hefty critters roaming through your trash. A team from the Florida Museum of Natural History examined the body length and weight of more than 140,000 animals from over 100 North American species which pop up in cities, including wolves, bobcats, deer, bats, shrews, and rodents, and found they are getting bigger and fatter than their rural relatives, thanks to the fact that there is more food in the area.

Polish construction firm Budimex and refiner Lotos have created a floral-scented asphalt. Why? According to the companies, it’s not to improve conditions for people living in large cities without ready access to nature. And it’s not for the sensory enjoyment of commuters who must spent hours fighting traffic every day to get to work. It’s to improve working conditions for road builders. The new bitumen contains a mixture of natural and synthetic essential oils, most of which neutralize the typical smell of asphalt, while the remaining ones add a more pleasing scent. A foreman was quoted by the companies as saying that at times, he can detect the scent of flowers, which made “working more pleasant”.
