Researchers have found that songbirds help reduce anxiety and feelings of paranoia among people. In a study of 295 participants, a team from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Germany examined the impact of hearing birds versus various traffic sounds. Although birdsong did not positively impact levels of depression, it did ease the severity of other mental health issues. Conversely, traffic noise was shown to worsen depression.


He sure knows how to “Rock” the box office. Dwayne Johnson’s “Black Adam” looks to have claimed the top spot on domestic movie charts, ahead of fellow new release “Ticket to Paradise.” Black Adam landed a $26.8 million opening day, including $7.6 million in Thursday previews. The DC Comics adaptation debuted in 4,402 North American theaters. An opening weekend gross of $62.2 million was projected for the superhero flick, which would mark the first wide release to debut above $50 million since Disney’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” bowed to $144 million in July. Second-place “Ticket to Paradise” was projected to nab a $16 million opening weekend.

Halloween begin life as an ancient Irish festival where the dead would come back to the world of the living for one night only. But where did they get this belief? Well, around the same time every year, the wild mushrooms that grow in Ireland go through a chemical change making them “magic mushrooms”.

The people, seeing ghosts and ghouls now walking the streets due to the hallucinations they were experiencing.

To keep them away from the home, they places a carved turnip at their doorstep, the face of the turnip was the face of a man known in Irish folklore as Stingy Jack.

Stingy Jack was a bit of a con artist and a messer.

One night after Jack was telling of his misdemeanours while drinking with friends, whilst walking home he came across a body lying in the street.

When he turned the body around, he instantly recognised the face as Satan’s.

To cut a long story short, Jack tricked Satan 3 times into not taking his life.

When he eventually did die 10 years later, neither Satan nor God wanted jacks soul.

He was left to roam the world as a spirit.

Putting him outside the door warned off other spirits as they did not want to be tricked by Jack.

Fast forward through the years and as the Irish move in large numbers to America, they keep the tradition.

But there aren’t many Turnips in America. So instead they begin using pumpkins.

Then, as it was an Irish thing to do, the others in America begin calling Jacks face a “Jack-o'-lantern”.

The “O” being placed there to go with the tradition of Irish surnames.

☞ “Being cool. At around 35, everyone…started realizing that all the things I thought were cool when we were 20 are actually really, really dumb and unimportant and we weren’t interested in them anymore.”

☞ “Anything that is called an “afterparty.” I am barely going to make it to the party, son.”

☞ “Night shift. I abused my 20s to it’s limit and (messed up) my sleep schedule so bad that even several years on days not hasn’t fully fixed.”

☞ “Flakes. As a single entering the dating scene again in my 30s, you could get away with being a flake and playing games in your 20s, but now, you’re just waving red flags in people’s faces.”

☞ “Hangovers. My hangovers really took the turn to the worst somewhere between 25-27. In my early 20s I could drink like a fish, stay up til 3 and wake up at 9 and go to my college class perfectly fine. Now, even when I get 8 hours of bed time (after drinking), the next day is basically ruined.”

☞ “Caring about what other people think is cool after age 30.”

Vaccines to fight cancer could be widely available before 2030, according to the husband and wife team behind one of the most successful Covid-19 jabs. Lessons learned during the pandemic will accelerate cancer treatments based on mRNA technology, say professors Ugur Sahin and Ozlem Tureci. The couple co-founded BioNTech in Germany, in 2008, to work mainly on cancer. When the pandemic hit, they changed focus to create a vaccine, working with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. The mRNA Covid vaccine works by ferrying genetic instructions for essentially harmless spike proteins on the Covid virus into the body, where the immune system’s antibodies learn what to search for and attack. The same approach can be taken to prime the immune system to seek out and destroy cancer cells, according to Tureci.

HBO’s “House of the Dragon” season finale leaked online Friday ahead of its Sunday night release. In a statement, HBO said the finale was posted to illegal torrent sites, and “appears to have originated from a distribution partner in the EMEA region,” referencing Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The network noted that it is “aggressively monitoring and pulling these copies from the internet.” HBO ended its statement by saying: “We’re disappointed that this unlawful action has disrupted the viewing experience for loyal fans of the show, who will get to see a pristine version of the episode when it premieres Sunday…exclusively in 4K”.

The “House of the Dragon” bosses are promising the second season will deliver more of the thrills and spills familiar to the millions of Thrones fans tuning in, along with more humor along the lines of the original series. Dragon showrunner Ryan Condal said that producers deliberately slowed down the narrative for the first season, to ensure viewers were invested in the new characters. Quote: “We will get to the spectacle. But you have to understand these people’s complexities before they’re thrown into war.” Condal promises there will be more lighthearted moments too in the next season, when the writers introduce “natural pathways into moments of levity” in the drama.

The vid begins with the words: “Hi, I’m Meghan, and I play a mean game of Scrabble!” She goes on to say that she’s “very good at Jeopardy”, loves to cook and makes “a really solid Bolognese sauce.” She says her favorite rom-com of all time is “When Harry Met Sally”, but “put Julia Roberts in anything, and I’m going to be a fan of those too”. When asked what she’s been watching lately with Prince Harry, she says that once the kids are in bed, and she has “played a little Wordle”, they occasionally turn on the TV, and “do endless searching until you get tired of searching, you don’t watch anything!” LINK:

A group of restaurant employees dressed as Power Rangers were real-life superheroes last Friday. Staff at NōKA Ramen in Oakland CA, where they serve a cocktail called “The Noka Rangers,” came to a woman’s rescue after she rushed into the eatery trying to escape from a man. A Twitter thread spelled out the story, saying: “I’m at a ramen shop owned by Thai people in Oakland dressed as power rangers, when a woman comes rushing in saying she wasn’t safe — and a man came running in after her and puts her in a chokehold…the black power ranger (the manager with a kickass bob) and the yellow ranger, told the man to leave,” the thread went on. “He swung at them. This is when all rangers yelled, ‘Huey!’ (a Thai expression meaning ‘WTF’). We’re trying to call the cops. Patrons are shaking & crying. The pink power ranger (hostess) tells us our food is free. The man…starts picking up (things) to throw at the windows. I, for some reason, start wolfing down my ramen. Next, the Yellow Ranger grabbed the man by the collar and dragged him out of the restaurant…More swings are swung, more power rangers pile onto the man at the door…I tell the hostess we’re paying her for our meal & double the tip. The Black Power Ranger manager explains that they are “beta testing these costumes, but we wore the right outfit tonight.” NōKA Ramen posted a snap of their Power Rangers, with the caption: “Our NōKA Rangers were real life heroes last night…Like our heroic namesakes, it’s not just the powers and costumes that give us strength. It’s who and what we are inside that empowers us.” LINK:

When you use the restroom you expect to see toilet paper, soap, an air freshener, and paper towels. But the Eufaula Alabama Police Department added "snake" to that list when they discovered a surprise visitor back in September. During the day shift, deputies found a snake in the toilet. “We never know from one day to the next what kind of call we will receive during our shift," police noted on social media. "Today was no exception, however a snake in the toilet wasn’t on our list of possibilities. Day shift removed the unwelcomed visitor and released it to a more suitable habitat.
