SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
Have you ever noticed that when pro athletes play against their former team, they often seem to have a “chip on their shoulder” and play better? Well, according to a new study, playing a “revenge game” may actually be a thing. Russian researchers found that athletes’ emotions have a much greater effect on their performance when taking on ex-teammates. For the study, data was analyzed from the NBA, NHL, and 6 European football leagues. It was determined that athletes performed exceptionally better at their former home stadiums against their old teams compared to newer venues. Researchers also found both NBA and NHL players took more shots against their ex-clubs. This also included those who saw little to no playing time with their former teams, with study authors saying these athletes may have felt they had something to prove. The researchers believe their findings could apply to other situations, such a new employee’s performance in competition against their former employer.

News that James Franco is set to play former Cuban president Fidel Castro in an upcoming film has some in Hollywood riled up, and not because of his sexual misconduct allegations. Veteran actor John Leguizamo posted the news, writing, “How is this still going on? How is Hollywood excluding us but stealing our narratives as well? No more appropriation Hollywood and streamers!” The “Moulin Rouge!” star, who was born in Colombia, added: I don’t got a prob with Franco but he ain’t Latino.” Newly appointed “The View” co-host Ana Navarro commented, saying “no Latino actor worth their salt would sign up to play and aggrandize a murderous dictator who terrorized the people of Cuba for 6 decades.” “Alina of Cuba” also stars Ana Villafañe as Castro’s daughter, Alina Fernandez, and follows the true story of her Cuban exile. It is one of Franco’s first major casting announcements since he was swept up in the #MeToo movement in 2018.
The ‘Titanic’ has been sunk again. “Top Gun: Maverick” has flown past the legendary blockbuster on the list of biggest money-makers in US box office history. Tom Cruise’s latest film, which has been on a roll since its release in May, is now in the #7 spot domestically, with $662 million in tickets sold, beating out James Cameron’s 1997 classic by about $3 million. ‘Maverick’ raked in $7 million over the weekend, which might not sound like much, but considering it’s in its 11th week in theaters, it’s pretty impressive. Other films still ahead of Top Gun 2 at the US box office include “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Black Panther” which had domestic hauls of $678M and $700M, respectively.

When it comes to replacing your old toothbrush, you want to be hygienic without being wasteful, so how often should you do it? According to a group of dentists, here are some answers: Manual toothbrushes should be replaced every 3-4 months – and never stretch it past 6 months. Your toothbrush literally brushes bacteria off of your teeth, and germs can stick around even after you’ve rinsed it. Plus, worn out toothbrushes don’t remove plaque well. Electric toothbrushes? 1-2 months, as the vibrating brush heads don’t last as long as standard toothbrushes. And if you’ve been sick with cold, flu, or another virus infection, it’s important to toss your toothbrush and get a new one right away to avoid reinfection.
