SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Forget “quiet-quitting” – these people are “quit-quitting”. A recent study from Lever found that 65% of Gen Zers (ages up to 24) plan to leave their job by the end of the year, and 40% of workers of any age say they’ll quit in the coming months. Employees from all generations have noted burnout, a lack of advancement opportunities and flexibility, and the absence of child care as reasons for resigning. Gen Z aren’t the only ones who want better, but they are the generation that is most likely to ask for it. According to the Lever report, they have different principles. Feeling that their job is doing something positive is critical for younger workers. The survey found that 42% would rather be at a company that gives them a sense of purpose than one that pays more, while only 40% of millennials and 32% of Gen Xers said the same. For those thinking about leaving a job, Elizabeth Lintelman, director of career services at American Public Education Inc., advises you weigh the decision carefully. She said: “If you’re just leaving because you think the grass is greener on the other side without doing due diligence and research, you’re gonna find yourself in the same position months from now.”

A Harvard study found that company CEOs work, on average, 62.5 hours per week. In their 2018 analysis of 27 company bosses, it was found that time is indeed the scarcest resource, with the average CEO working 9.7 hours per weekday, 4 hours per weekend day and 2.4 hours per vacation day. But before you cry too many tears for your company’s fearless leader, keep this in mind: the study also found that CEOs make an average of 271 times regular workers’ pay.


Ellen DeGeneres is back with a new short docu-style comedy series. “About Time For Yourself… with Ellen” will be shared weekly on the retired talk show host’s YouTube channel, and the first episode went out on Saturday. In a clip, DeGeneres says: “You know, lately I’ve been taking some time just for myself, away from the cameras. And I’ve been having such a great time, I thought I would share some of what I’ve been doing with you. And so I yelled, ‘Portia, get the camera’…Great job, so far.” The 8-episode series finds the comedian learning new skills at home, like crocheting, bird watching, making cards, and more.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

More than 5 billion phones will be thrown away in 2022, more than enough to stretch all the way around the equator, according to a new report from the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Forum. If stacked flat on top of each other, the phones would make a tower over 30,000 miles (48,280km) tall — 120 times higher than the orbit of the International Space Station and reaching an eighth of the way to the Moon. And it’s no wonder. A survey across 6 countries found that the average household owns 74 electrical products, including phones, tablets, laptops, electric tools, hair dryers, and toasters. Of these 74, on average 13 were being hoarded, 9 were left unused, and 4 of them were broken.

According to etiquette experts…

Touching and moving things: When someone says ‘Make yourself at home,’ they don’t mean it literally. Keep your feet off the furniture, and unless it’s a close friend, don’t open the fridge without being asked. (And don’t even get me STARTED on the medicine cabinet…)

Expecting a tour: Many people are happy to show you around, but not everyone. And if your host doesn’t offer a tour, don’t take it upon yourself to wander around, either.

Overstaying your welcome: Know when it’s time to leave. The top complaint etiquette experts hear is about guests who simply won’t leave when they should. (It’s a strong indicator if they put their jammies on…)

Hiding a mess: Mistakes happen. You might accidentally spill red wine on the carpet or knock over a lamp. Tell your host immediately – even if it’s something small like a finished roll of toilet paper. (…which I was using to clean up the wine spill…on the pool table!)

Bringing an uninvited ‘plus-one’: Even if it’s a casual gathering, be sure to ask ahead of time.

Others: Waiting to share dietary restrictions, feeding the dog, disrespecting shoe rules, and showing up empty handed.

GOOD NEWS: Brought to you by

More than 1,000 teddy bears left in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II will be donated to a children’s charity. The teddy bears – some in the image of Paddington Bear – were left outside the royal residences in London and Windsor, and other official tribute areas. Buckingham Palace says they will be professionally cleaned and donated to Barnardo’s, a British children’s charity that provides support services for vulnerable children and young adults. Queen Elizabeth II served as the charity’s patron from 1983-2016. Queen Consort Camilla became the Barnardo’s patron in 2016.
