SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

It seems we’re getting sick and tired of working from home. According to a survey, 8 in 10 of us are ready to do our jobs from…vacation. In a poll of 2,000 remote and remote-flexible workers, 80% would consider working remotely from a vacation destination as a way to extend the length of their trip. When asked to choose between a longer trip that involved some remote work and a shorter trip that required no work, twice as many respondents opted for the longer trip with some work involved [46% vs. 26%].

Energy drinks can cause hair loss in men, according to researchers from China. They found that those who swill down large quantities of energy drinks, as well as fizzy drinks, sports drinks, and even sweetened tea and coffee, are at greater risk of suffering from male pattern hair loss. In their study, those who consumed more than one sweetened drink per day were found to have a 42% greater risk of experiencing hair loss, compared to men who didn’t drink any of those beverages. So, is your energy drink the reason that you are losing your hair? Not for sure, but it might not be helping you.


The sequel to the highest-grossing movie of all time will now “easily” break even at the box office, according to writer/director James Cameron. He raised eyebrows before the film’s release when he said ‘Avatar: The Way of Water” would need to “be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history” just to “break even.” Well, as of the weekend, it has become the 7th-highest-grossing picture of all time, with a worldwide box office total just above $1.7 billion. During an interview, Cameron stated, “It looks like with the momentum that the film has now that we’ll easily pass our break even in the next few days, so it looks like I can’t wiggle out of this and I’m gonna have to do these other sequels. I know what I’m going to be doing the next 6 or 7 years.” He had already confirmed that “Avatar 3” will hit theaters in 2024, and now, it appears both 4 and 5 are a go.

Could Brad Pitt be preparing to ride off into the sunset? Page Six is quoting a source close to the “Bullet Train” star, claiming that Pitt is preparing to step back from Hollywood following his sale of a majority stake in his production company, Plan B, which has produced films like the recent Marilyn Monroe film “Blonde”. The source said: “Brad has decided that he wants to live a peaceful life going forward and is deciding what ‘semi-retirement’ looks like for him.” However, the source clarified, while Pitt is scaling back his production work, he’s still planning to maintain his busy acting career. On the other hand, a different source says he’s considering a move to France.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A new “Floating Retreat” resort in the United Arab Emirates will feature a line of tents suspended 100 meters (328ft.) in the air. Set to be built in the mountains of Sharjah, up to 10 canopies would stretch between rocky peaks. The “Floating Retreat” idea was dreamed up by Dubai-based design studio Ardh Architects. The company says their “new typology of hospitality” will boast tents that are essentially floating hotel rooms that are suspended from the side of a mountain — and come with room service, entertainment, and WiFi. Each room also has its own bathroom, and access to a 5-star spa at the top of the mountain. The reception area is located on the ground floor and offers amenities such as a concierge, restaurant, and private guided tours of the mountain. Guests will be able to adjust the suspension of the tents themselves. The side fabric of the tents is made of a blur fabric, while the front is made of clear material to provide uninterrupted views. The company says the tranquil and serene atmosphere of the Floating Retreat will provide guests with the opportunity to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life. No opening date yet.

A British company has developed the world’s first tractor to be completely powered by . . . cow dung. New Holland’s brand-new machine runs on liquefied methane, allowing farmers to decrease their emissions and save money on expensive diesel. The company says the fuel can easily be produced by methane from cow pies. Waste byproducts from a herd as small as 100 cows are turned into a fuel called fugitive methane in a storage unit based on the farm. The ground-breaking machine was developed by British company Bennamann, and is said to be a match power-wise for the performance of standard diesel-powered tractors.
