SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

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.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com

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: https://tinyurl.com/34tv2fez

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 “X.com” over 5 years ago, and has spoken about creating a “super-app” comparable to China’s WeChat.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com

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: https://tinyurl.com/yjyn8y5d
