Researchers from the University of Surrey say it may soon be time to say goodbye to e-books, in favor of augmented reality books. They have unveiled the third-generation version of the Next Generation Paper project. It allows the reader to consume information on printed paper and screen side-by-side. To use augmented reality, or “a-books”, all you need to do is swipe your finger or turn the page. The information will then be displayed on a nearby device. The scientists say the technology “can assist the reader in a deeper understanding of the written topic and get more through digital means without ruining the experience of reading a paper book.”


Alec Baldwin has doubled down on his claim that he never pulled the trigger of the gun that discharged, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza. The FBI recently released a report stating that the incident could not have taken place without the trigger being pulled. Baldwin spoke with Chris Cuomo on his new show “The Chris Cuomo Project”, and although it appears as though the interview was conducted before the FBI’s report went public, Cuomo asked Baldwin how he’s been navigating the situation nearly a year after it took place, and the actor responded that he is not the real victim here, Hutchins is. He maintained that he did not pull the trigger and noted that everyone on the set of the production was shocked and “confused” by what happened. Baldwin’s lawyer has responded to the FBI report, saying that it was being “misconstrued.”

If you enjoyed “Top Gun: Maverick”, you’ll probably enjoy it with 110 minutes of bonus material. Paramount has announced a digital release date of Aug. 23 for the #1 movie of the year, with the film hitting 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on Nov. 1. As part of the release, there are 110 minutes of bonus features, including music videos for the soundtrack songs by Lady Gaga and OneRepublic; various short featurettes, and the Masterclass with Tom Cruise from the Cannes Film Festival (running a whopping 49 minutes and said to be the most essential special feature). The continued success of “Top Gun: Maverick” means instead of the typical 45-day window before debuting on streaming services and PVOD, it simply remained in theaters, collecting record-breaking revenue and delighting movie fans enough to make it the #2 movie at the box office last weekend, months after its May release.

Think twice about that granola bar in the morning, because ice cream may be a better option. A new study from Tufts University in Boston has created the “Food Compass,” a system that ranks how healthy foods are by giving them a nutrient score. Unsurprisingly, whole foods like fruits and vegetables ranked highly on the list — with spinach even scoring a perfect 100. But fans of sweet treats will be thrilled to learn that chocolate ice cream with nuts scored 35 points, while a coconut and chocolate granola bar received just 15 points. By the way, frozen yogurt, a treat often cited as a healthy alternative to ice cream, scored just 23.

Grapes can add years to your life, and have other health benefits as well, according to research published in the journal Foods. The study, performed on mice that were fed western diets with grape supplements, found that antioxidants found in grapes can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, boost metabolism and reduce the risk of fatty liver disease. It was determined that grapes could also extend the lives of humans by as much as 5 years.

Angelina Jolie has seemingly been identified as the “Jane Doe” who sued the FBI, questioning why an investigation into her then-husband Brad Pitt was closed after allegations of physical and verbal assault in 2016. According to Puck News, Jolie is the unnamed plaintiff in the suit, which had long been speculated, given the timeline and the events described. The suit demanded the bureau turn over documents related to an investigation into Pitt, after Jolie alleged that he had “physically and verbally assaulted” her and their children while traveling on a private plane “several years ago.” Pitt has denied the allegations of physical abuse, and no charges were ever filed. He and Jolie divorced shortly after the alleged incident on the plane. Reps for Jolie and the FBI have not commented.

The beauty experts at HD Brows have taken a deep dive into the biggest mishaps that could be causing your lashes harm.

Rubbing your eyes
The most frequent beauty mishap many of us are making is ‘rubbing our eyes too vigorously’. The topic has had 44.5 million TikTok views, 1 million YouTube videos dedicated to the problem, and has had a 62% increase in searches on Pinterest this year.

Using expired mascara
Ranking second on the most common lash mistakes, is ‘using expired mascara’. The beauty blunder, which has 37.6 million views on TikTok, can lead to irritation, infection and conjunctivitis.

Overusing false lashes
Lash extensions or false lashes make your morning much faster, as you wake up feeling more glamorous with luscious lashes. However, using fake lashes too often can lead to eye infection, allergic reactions and damage to your natural lashes.

Wearing mascara too often
Wearing mascara too often can be the biggest culprit of eyelash loss, damage to tear film and eye infection. With over 20 million TikTok viewers asking what happens if you wear mascara every day, it’s clear we aren’t being as kind to our lashes as we should be.

Eyelash curlers
The most common mistake people make when curling their lashes is applying the mascara beforehand, which is a major culprit of eyelash breakage. Instead of giving that luscious volume you’re after, curling the lashes after applying mascara will make them sticky, and more likely to get pulled out by the curler,” explains Debbie.

Ripping false lashes off
36 million people on TikTok have enjoyed videos of eyelashes being ripped off, however this can cause more harm than good. Debbie says: “We’ve all been there. It’s the end of the day and there’s nothing more satisfying than just ripping off your falsies. But this can lead to not only losing your lashes, but damaging the hair follicles so they don’t grow back”

Sharing mascara
Sharing mascara and other eye products is a massive beauty mishap that can cause harm to your lashes and surrounding area, the potential risk outweighs the benefits of sharing any mascara, liner or shadows. “Sharing cosmetics, especially mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner, can lead to a staph infection, pink eye, and even lash lice,” warns Debbie.
