SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Sorry, dads – you’re just not at the top of the list when it comes to baby’s first words. According to the largest-ever study of early vocabulary by a team at Cornell University, while a child’s first word is often “mama,” across different languages and cultures, they usually learn the words “this” and “that” before they utter “dad.” Why ‘this’ and ‘that’? The words are used to grab their parents’ or caregivers’ attention, say the researchers, who determined that children are excited to spread their curiosity with others and thus, use those words early on to help demonstrate their point of view. The team said: “While adults think of these words as simple, their meanings are fairly challenging for children to understand at young ages”.

King Charles III is reportedly eager to reconcile with Prince Harry, contrary to the Duke of Sussex’s recent claim. The Telegraph reported this week, citing sources, that “Those close to the king insist that he has always made clear how much he loves both of his sons, keeping communication channels open throughout the last few years, despite the many barbs from California.” The insiders told the British newspaper that Harry’s side of the story was “wrong,” adding that Charles and Harry have remained in contact and the monarch has “reiterated that his door remains open and that the duke and [Meghan Markle] are welcome at any time.”

And just in case you’ve gone a few hours without anyone mentioning “Avatar: The Way of Water” to you, you’ll be happy to know that there are now 2 Lego sets inspired by the box-office champion. One is a 528-piece set depicting a Metkayina reef dwelling, while the other is a simpler, 259-piece set which creates a posable skimwing figure, complete with Tonowari and Jake Sully minifigures, and a Pandoran coral reef setting.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Can you stand it if I mention New Year’s resolutions one more time? Actually, this is sort-of a good news story, because it boils down to this: If you made a resolution to lose weight or exercise more, forget about it. Because according to a professor from the University of Rochester, you’re not likely to be successful in keeping those resolutions anyway. To change things up, and make yourself happier, Richard Ryan, an expert on motivation and well-being, says that resolutions to help others will end up being better for you personally in the long run. How’s that? He says that most resolutions, such as losing weight, are an attempt to look better, relieve guilt, or meet the standards of others, and “because it isn’t really coming from your own values or interests, the energy for it fades fast.” On the other hand, goals which include giving back to others are much more satisfying. He said: “If we…set goals that aim to help others, those kinds of goals will, in turn, also add to our own well-being” and happiness.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Bozo criminal for today comes from Miramar Beach, Florida, where the cops were called to the Ann Taylor store on a report of a shoplifting incident. Cops were led to the dressing room where our bozo had left the tags for 18 items behind. But that wasn’t all she left. Her cell phone was there. And, unexpectedly, she also left behind some pee. Yep, she peed on the floor. Well, there’s your DNA right there. Cops used the phone to get in touch with her husband who ratted her out and gave them a description of the car she was driving. In the meantime, another call came in, this time from Saks Off Fifth, where she tried to steal six pair of men’s jeans by hiding them under her coat. A deputy grabbed her and found the other stolen items in her car. Busted! No word on the fate of the pee.
