A new study has shown some surprising health benefits to replacing sugar with – honey. The research, by a University of Toronto team, found that consuming raw honey may improve blood sugar control and lower cholesterol levels when taken within the context of a healthy diet. The results are surprising, said senior researcher Tauseef Khan, “because honey is about 80% sugar.” He cautions that his team isn’t suggesting you start adding honey to your food if you currently avoid sugar, but, “If you’re using table sugar, syrup or another sweetener, switching those sugars for honey might lower cardio-metabolic risks.”

Reclining airplane seats are on the decline. A CNN report points out that while at one point, all airline seats, even in economy class, had built-in recline. Today, there are entire seat models that simply don’t have the option. Why? 3 main reasons: The mechanism that allows a seat to lean back is a significant cost – to purchase, and for maintenance. Secondly, there is a weight cost. And any weight that can be saved means reducing the fuel needed to carry it. And thirdly — and in some ways most importantly – there is a disruption cost, because if passengers are fighting with each other over seat reclining etiquette, then flight attendants have to play “schoolyard monitor”. And sometimes, passengers got so disruptive that flights must be diverted for safety.


Kate Winslet has gone viral after empowering a nervous young journalist conducting her first interview. In the clip, which is all over social media, the “Avatar: The Way of Water” star sat down for a chat with a young lady who admitted she was anxious, saying: “It’s my first time.” Winslet leans forward and says: “OK, well, guess what. When we do this interview, it’s going to be the most amazing interview ever. And do you know why? Because we’ve decided that it is going to be.” The interviewer nervously laughs, and Winslett continues, saying: “You can ask me anything that you want and you don’t have to be scared, everything is going to be amazing.” After the young journalist agrees, The “Titanic” star reassures her again, saying: “You got this. OK, let’s do it!” LINK:

A company is selling a phone-shaped slab of acrylic to help people beat smartphone addiction. Japanese company eKod Works has introduced the “AcryPhone”, a rudimentary device designed to mimic the look and feel of a smartphone. It has no screen, no speakers, not even a tiny LED. It designed to fit in the palm of your hand, so you can wean yourself off actual smartphones more easily. And how much for this chunk of…nothing?
