It’s no wonder we look forward to the holidays with so much anticipation. With them come a number of special moments that we just don’t get to enjoy at other times of the year. Among them, the chance to get together with loved ones, beautiful decorations and music to celebrate the season, gifts…and food, of course! According to a survey, cinnamon is the top holiday-season flavor. The OnePoll survey of Americans found that both kids and adults named cinnamon as the top taste to evoke feelings of holiday nostalgia and comfort, with 58% of respondents putting it at the top of their list. Cinnamon was followed by pumpkin (54%), peppermint (52%), cocoa (47%), and nutmeg (39%). When it comes to the most cherished holiday traditions, decorating the Christmas tree came out on top (43%). Second was seeing friends and family (40%), followed by decorating the home (29%), watching holiday movies (26%), and eating holiday meals (25%).

Budweiser has a special prize for the winners of the 2022 FIFA World Cup following Qatar’s decision to ban alcohol at game venues. The beer brand is offering a massive warehouse-sized slab of free beers to the winning country. Budweiser is one of the sponsors of the tournament, and planned to sell a whole lot of beer at the event. But Qatar decided to prohibit the sale of alcohol inside stadiums just 2 days before the World Cup kicked off. In response, earlier this week, Budweiser tweeted a picture of some enormous skids of beer inside a warehouse, with the caption: “Winning Country gets the Buds. Who will get them?” LINK:


Amber Heard says her million-dollar insurance policy does, in fact, cover her in the Johnny Depp trial and verdict, and she’s asking a judge to confirm it. She has countersued New York Marine and General Insurance Co. after they first asked a judge to let them off the hook for a $1 million liability policy she’d taken out to protect her from defamation claims. Their argument was based on the fact the jury found Heard committed willful misconduct in her defamation of Depp, so they’re not responsible. In new court docs, Heard argues that New York Marine promised to pay her defense costs and judgments against her up to a million dollars, according to the unconditional deal she claims they struck with her.

Have you Heard? Amber Heard is the most-Googled celebrity of the year. Research from Hollywood news site CelebTattler analyzed Google search trends in 2022, tracking over 150 notable celebs, eventually crowning “Aquaman” star Amber Heard as #1. Presumably due to her high profile court battle with her ex, the 36-year-old actress prompted an average of 5.6 million searches every month in the US. The ex in question, Johnny Depp, trailed closely behind in second place, with 5.5 million searches per month. Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September, came third, followed, in order, by Tom Brady, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson.

One of the great “school hacks” that students of the 21st century have been able to take advantage of is the opportunity to use their phones to take pictures of a teacher’s lecture slides. It’s much easier than traditional note-taking, and definitely more accurate. It also helps students recall the information being presented, according to a new study. University of California researchers found that taking a photo helps students better remember both the slide AND spoken-word content presented by the instructor. While the study did not explain why taking photos helps with memory retention, the study authors suggest that “the predictability of taking a photo” periodically “enabled participants to pay more attention” while in class. The results were even observed among students who never referred back to their photos in preparation for an exam.

A dad who hates hearing Christmas songs too early came up with the ultimate solution – programming his Amazon Alexa to reject his kids’ festive requests until December. England’s Mark Lovell says he was forced to act when he overheard his 3 children chatting about Christmas tunes in the first week of November. The 42-year-old gets “irritated by Christmas starting too early” so he opened the Alexa app and set up a “skill” to respond to phrases such as “play Christmas music.” Facebook video shows him testing his handiwork by requesting festive tunes, only to have one of his 4 smart speakers tell him: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that until December.” It then recalls the day’s date, which Mark added to emphasize the request’s earliness. He also programmed Alexa to block the phrases “play holiday music,” “play Christmas albums,” “play Christmas carols,” “play Christmas tunes” and “play Christmas hits.” Before you assume he’s a Grinch, we should point out that he insists he loves festive music – but not until December.

If you’re having a “ruff” time when it comes to meeting someone special, maybe the answer is right under your…kitchen table…or wherever else your 4-legged friend likes to hang out. A survey of dog owners found that 34% of them met their significant other thanks to their pupper. And it’s not just romantic love that people are finding, thanks to their dogs: one in 3 respondents said they met their best friend because of their pet. How are these meetups happening? The majority of respondents to the survey of 2,000 US dog owners conducted by OnePoll (68%) said it’s easier to start a conversation once their pet has broken the ice, and provided something to talk about. That might explain how 72% of those surveyed said they have struck up a conversation with someone specifically because of their pet. For those people, those conversations happen an average of 172 times per year.

Shortly before he made headlines recently with the news that he’ll be parting ways with Manchester United, forward Cristiano Ronaldo became the first person to amass 500 million followers on Instagram. And his lead over the person with the second-most followers is astounding: Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is next with 377 million. Kylie Jenner is in third spot with 372 million followers while Selena Gomez and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson are 4th and 5th with 357 and 347 million, respectively.

Tom Cruise’s British commute is apparently disrupting the filming of the BBC drama “Call the Midwife,” according to star Jenny Agutter. In an interview with The Mirror, the actress said: “Tom Cruise keeps on ruining our filming by landing his helicopter right outside where we’re shooting.” The “Top Gun” star, who holds a pilot license, reportedly flew his helicopter over the “Midwife” set in Surrey, England, causing a ruckus while the cast attempted to shoot scenes. Cruise appears to be in town filming “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two.” A rep for Cruise did not immediately return a request for comment.

Finally, we know when “Top Gun: Maverick” will be streaming on Paramount+. The highest-grossing film of 2022 will hit the streaming service on Dec. 22 in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the UK and some other markets. It will be available in South Korea and France in 2023. The streaming release comes 7 months after Top Gun: Maverick first hit theaters. Producer and star Tom Cruise was reportedly adamant that the “Top Gun” sequel not land on Paramount+ too close to the film’s theatrical release date, and that move paid off to the tune of $1.49 billion at the box office. Most Paramount films begin streaming at Paramount+ 45 days after opening in theaters. The second Top Gun movie was made available to purchase or rent on Digital in August, followed by a 4K Blu-ray and DVD release on Nov. 1.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet that Twitter will launch its delayed “Verified” service this week, with different colored checks depending on the type of account. The plan is for there to be a “gold check” for companies, a grey check for government accounts, and the existing blue one is for individuals, whether they are celebs or not. This comes after he was forced to pause the $8 per month “Twitter Blue” service, which allowed anyone to pay the subscription for the blue verification tick, after users abused the system by impersonating brands and famous people. Musk said that all verified accounts will be “manually authenticated” before the check is activated on Friday. LINK:

Elon Musk has a plan if Apple decides to boot Twitter from the App Store. He’ll simply create his own smartphone. Musk wrote in a Friday tweet he would “make an alternative phone” to compete with Apple’s iPhone if the tech giant ends up blocking Twitter from its powerful App Store. Musk’s comments come after Phil Schiller, an Apple exec who’s responsible for leading the App Store, deleted his Twitter account, and Yoel Roth, former head of trust and safety at Twitter, said in a New York Times column that the social media giant risks being expelled from Apple and Google’s app stores if they fail to adhere to guidelines, with regards to content moderation.

One more thing about Elon Musk – no one can say he’s not ambitious. In addition to the fact that he founded and/or oversees several multi-billion-dollar companies, he has taken on what may be his most difficult challenge yet – turning Twitter around. And so far, all he has managed to do it turn it upside down…but he definitely has big plans. Such as? Monday, Musk said he plans to add video and voice call features, plus ‘secure direct-messaging’ to the social-media platform. At the company’s San Francisco headquarters, Musk gave a presentation with slides entitled “Twitter 2.0.” Under the plans, DMs would be encrypted, meaning the text could only be read by participants, as is the case on platforms like WhatsApp, Telegram, and Signal. That feature, and voice and video chatting (both already available on Facebook and WhatsApp) could be tied to Musk’s idea of “creating X, the everything app.” He bought the domain name “” over 5 years ago, and has spoken about creating a “super-app” comparable to China’s WeChat.

A record-breaking goldfish has been caught in Champagne, France, where an angler dragged a 30-kilogram (67 pound) specimen – about the same as a 10-year-old child — from BlueWater Lakes. The carp fishery released the behemoth, known as ‘The Carrot’, 20 years ago and it has since grown to be one of the largest in the world. It took a fisherman 25 minutes to reel her in before snapping a few photos and letting her go. Experts say the enormous size of The Carrot serves as a reminder not to release pets into the wild, because certain types of goldfish can grow to enormous sizes. Gigantic goldfish have been a problem in some areas where they upset the silt bed and rip up plants, and authorities believe pet owners are partly to blame. LINK:

Spicy foods equal a spicy life. Or at least it would seem, according to a survey, which found that people who enjoy spicy foods are more likely to consider themselves “hot”. 2,000 American adults were polled, in an effort at finding if there are any personality correlations between people who are spicy food enthusiasts. What did they find out? Spicy food eaters are more likely to enjoy trying new things (76%), consider themselves attractive (62%) and are more content with their lives (66%) than those with milder heat preferences. 93% of respondents prefer some level of heat in their food. Nearly 4 in 10 (36%) say they go for medium, 33% go for mild and 24% like their spice level set to hot. What else did we find out about those who find spice nice? They’re more likely to describe themselves as creative (54%), confident (51%) and adventurous (44%). Meanwhile, those who walk on the “mild” side are more likely to describe themselves as empathetic (41%) and shy (37%). Oh, and here’s a heads-up, just in case you expect to see your hot-wings-loving Uncle Larry over the holidays: Those who love spicy food are also most likely to “stir the pot” at get togethers, causing drama with friends and family.

Grabbing just 30 seconds of sunlight every morning could slash your chances of developing most types of cancer significantly, research by one of the UK’s leading specialists suggests. Dr. Mohammad Muneeb Khan says that less than half a minute’s exposure to the sun’s near-infrared (NIR) light between sunrise and 9am may offer a higher level of protection to adults and children than eating 2,500 bananas or a kilogram of Brazil nuts per day. Stepping outside during these times could cut the odds of developing cancer from a 1 in 2 chance to 1 in 10, making it a more effective inhibitor than any other single preventative measure. NIR light, which is invisible to the human eye, is most effective at dawn.


Quentin Tarantino is sticking to his 10-movie promise. In a new interview with CNN, the filmmaker confirmed that his next movie will be his last, after directing 9 standalone films over the past 3 decades (plus 2007’s “Death Proof”, half of the double feature “Grindhouse”). The 59-year-old said: I’ve been doing it for 30 years. And it’s time to wrap up the show. I’m an entertainer. I want to leave you wanting more.” Tarantino kicked off his big-screen directorial career with 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs”, and most recently handled 2019’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. He has won 2 Academy Awards for screenwriting: for “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained”.

A few tips from health experts ….

Colds and the flu are viral infections that usually bring fever, aches, and fatigue.

Allergies do not come with a fever.

If you’re sneezing and blowing your nose endlessly, it could be a cold or allergies, but a cold will leave after a week-to-10 days. Allergies linger.

Allergies are not accompanied by pains, upset stomach, or exhaustion like the flu.

Symptoms for allergies include ‘allergy shiners’, where blood vessels under eyes dilate, creating dark circles; and the ‘allergy salute’, whereby people constantly rub their nose.

For colds, well, grandma was right. Chicken soup really is a good remedy, though doctors are not sure why.

A group of Taiwanese researchers have found that using AirPods Pro can be just as effective as professional hearing aids, at a fraction of the price. In 2016, Apple released a feature called “Live Listen” that allows people to use AirPods for sound amplification purposes. The researchers tested 4 devices with 21 participants with mild to moderate hearing loss. They found AirPods Pro performed comparably to basic hearing aids in a quiet environment, only slightly less effective than premium hearing aids. In a noisy environment, AirPods Pro performed similarly to premium hearing aids. The study author says that whether because of the cost or due to social stigma, people are reluctant to invest in regular hearing aids, but this information may be a good starting point in assisting those with compromised hearing.

Drones can be crucial during natural disasters by transporting supplies to people in need. But what if the delivery drones themselves were made of food? A team at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology has developed a small flying craft with wings made of rice cakes, to enable it to deliver more life-sustaining nutrition or medication. To fashion the wing, the rice cakes are laser-cut into hexagons and fixed together by gelatin. These are then wrapped in protective plastic, before being affixed to the drone. Gelatin was found to be an adequate adhesive. The wingspan of about 27 inches (70 centimeters) results in enough rice cake and gelatin glue to deliver the equivalent of one breakfast serving—with 80 grams remaining for a payload of vitamins or water. The developers say the wing tastes like “a crunchy rice crisp cookie with a little touch of raw gelatin.”

Friday, it was announced that alcohol would no longer be available in stadiums for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, despite officials originally promising it would be. But for those heading to the Middle East, there’s still a way to enjoy an alcoholic beverage at stadiums – although it certainly won’t be cheap. The only way for fans to drink alcohol at any of the 8 World Cup stadiums is by purchasing a corporate hospitality ticket, which will set you back a cool US $22,600 (£19,000). Fan parks will continue to sell alcohol despite the change of plan from officials, though it will cost around US $14.25 (£12) a pint. Another loser out of all of this is Budweiser – which struck a massive $75 million (£63 million) deal with FIFA for exclusive rights to sell beer at the World Cup. When FIFA announced it was dropping alcohol in stadiums just 2 days before the first game, Budweiser posted a tweet saying: “Well, this is awkward”.

Quote: “The plan was to on-camera tell me all the results and then talk about how you can improve this and that.” But, he says, the doctor featured in the episode didn’t want to have to tell him the result on camera, preferring to have an “off-side” conversation to see if he even wanted this info to be featured in the show. Hemsworth discovered that he is 8-10 times more likely to get Alzheimer’s disease, a revelation that prompted him to decide to take some time to be with his family.

A New Mexico woman, who had been missing for 2 days, was finally rescued after a train passenger saw her waving from her window. The woman had gone hiking along the Colorado Trail when she fell off a cliff while trying to take pictures. She broke her leg in the 90-foot fall, and had been unconscious for an unknown period of time. When the train passenger saw the woman waving for help, she immediately alerted the conductor. A 9-11 call would confirm that the family of the hiker had been looking for her. Thankfully, riding in the next train passing the location were 2 trained medical and emergency professionals. They were able to cross the river to examine the woman, assess her injuries, bring emergency supplies, and assist in a helicopter rescue. There were 327 passengers on the train at the time, and they all waited as the couple helped the injured hiker, who was not dressed to battle the wilderness temperatures throughout her ordeal.
