SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A study suggests that putting our clocks ahead to daylight saving, and leaving them there, could help fight climate change. The findings, published in Environmental Research Letters, show how researchers simulated the heating and cooling demands of office buildings for 15 US cities, and analyzed the impact that daylight saving could have until the year 2050. They determined that under current climate conditions, daylight saving time reduces cooling demand by 5.9%, but increased heating demand by 4.4%. But as the environment warms, they found that daylight saving time could reduce cooling demand by up to 5.4%, while increasing heating demand by 3.2%. In both cases daylight saving results in a net decrease in energy used. They say that moving our clocks forward permanently by one hour could be a tool to help reduce carbon emissions and adapt to the climate crisis.

In many Chinese cities, there is a service called “Jam Busting” that allows drivers who are caught in traffic and need to get somewhere quickly to be picked up right away. Two people arrive; one to quickly get you through traffic on a motorcycle, and the other drops off your car at your arranged location.


According to a report, Ryan Reynolds is teaming-up with Toronto-based real estate development corporation Remington Group to purchase the Ottawa Senators NHL team. The Ottawa Sun says that Reynolds and Remington will make a bid to purchase the team, and plans to build a new arena in downtown Ottawa. If the deal goes through, Reynolds will be the face of the team. It’s expected the sale price of the club will exceed US $800 million. The “Deadpool” actor is also reportedly planning to create a series surrounding the purchase of the team and the construction of the new stadium. It would be similar to the “Welcome to Wrexham” series that has been produced since Reynolds co-purchased the Wales-based soccer team Wrexham FC.

The Kansas City Chiefs aren’t the only ones celebrating after Sunday night’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles during Super Bowl 57. The telecast, which was broadcast on Fox and digital platforms, averaged 113 million viewers, according to early Nielsen data. That makes it the most-watched Super Bowl since 2017’s Patriots vs. Falcons matchup. The audience shot up to 118.7M viewers during Rihanna‘s halftime show, the most-watched halftime show since Katy Perry in 2015, and second most-watched Super Bowl halftime performance on record.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are taking their humor on the road. The former “Saturday Night Live” co-stars have announced their first-ever live tour together, titled “The Restless Leg Tour”.

The funny ladies plan to share stories from their 30 years of friendship and their careers from the stage.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The move to paper straws is definitely better for the environment, but nobody likes it when it gets all soggy and self-destructs on your second sip. But hang in there, because scientists at the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology say they are developing a 100% biodegradable, environmentally-friendly paper straw that doesn’t get soggy. It turns out that the paper straws we use these days aren’t just made of paper. If they were made of 100% paper, they’d get so soggy that they wouldn’t even be usable as a straw. So, manufacturers coat the surface with polyethylene, or acrylic resin, both of which are ingredients in plastic bags and adhesives. But that coating material doesn’t fully decompose – becoming microplastics instead. The South Korean researchers managed to come up with a coating material which is made of the same stuff that largely makes up paper, and can completely break down in the environment.
