For those of us who need some assistance in this department, scientists say they have identified a key flirting technique that works nearly every time. Researchers studied flirting in Norway and the US, and determined that differences in age, religiosity, extroversion, personal attractiveness and preferences for short-term sexual relationships had little or no effect on how effective various flirting tactics are. In other words, we all respond pretty much the same way to how someone might flirt with us. They found that women see success in igniting interest from men by either by moving closer or making body and eye contact. Men? They should show “signs of generosity and a willingness to commit”. But there’s one weapon that works across the board: humor. According to the researchers, laughing or giggling at the other person’s jokes is an effective flirtation tactic for both sexes. And if you’re a woman, “It is not only effective to be funny…is very important that you show your potential partner that you think they are funny.”

A first-of-its-kind study suggests that bumblebees play with objects such as wooden balls just for fun, same as humans or dogs do. A team at Queen Mary University, London researchers wrote: “We found that ball rolling did not contribute to immediate survival strategies, was intrinsically rewarding, differed from functional behavior…and was initiated under stress-free conditions.” This led to their belief that what they were witnessing was animal play.

HBO has switched off “Westworld”. The network has decided to cancel the sci-fi drama after its recent 4th season. It’s an unexpected fate for a series that was once considered one of HBO’s biggest tentpoles — an acclaimed mystery-box drama that racked up 54 Emmy nominations (including a supporting actress win for Thandiwe Newton). Last month, co-creator Jonathan Nolan said that he hoped HBO would give the series a 5th season to wrap up the show’s ambitious story, which chronicled a robot uprising that changed the fate of humanity. But ratings for the pricey series fell off sharply for its third season, then dropped even further for season 4.
Netflix and David Letterman’s production company edited out comments by Kanye West that referenced Nazis and blamed Rihanna for her own domestic abuse during a 2019 interview for his talk show, according to a report by The Wrap. The entertainment industry website says the comments were made during a wide-ranging interview for Season 2 of the comedian’s Netflix show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.” Audience members Noah Reich and David Maldonado said they were sitting in the front row of a local theater in January 2019 when West made the observation that liberals treated anyone wearing a red pro-Trump cap “like they were Nazis” and said that Rihanna, a victim of domestic abuse, must have done something to deserve what happened to her. He also ranted about how an unnamed music executive friend (thought to be R. Kelly) got “MeToo-ed” and how West himself could also be “MeToo-ed”.

Pittsburgh-based startup has unveiled a pair of battery-powered shoes that it claims can boost walking speed by up to 250%. “Moonwalkers” will sell for $1,400, and look like a pair of futuristic rollerskates, but users are meant to walk with them the way you would regular shoes, letting the motorized wheels put a spring in your step. Powered by a DC motor, the contraption is actually a platform that can be attached to footwear to increase walking speeds up to 7mph (11kph). )Humans’ average walking speed ranges from 2.5-4 mph.) The sensation of walking with the world’s fastest shoes has been compared to that of using a ‘moving walkway’ in an airport.
