As 5G wireless technology is just starting to take off, the guys in white lab coats are already working on 6G. And researchers from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst say 6G could involve using people as antennas! 6G telecommunications could take advantage of Visible Light Communication (VLC), which is like a wireless version of fiberoptics. Right now, fiberoptics use incredibly thin glass or plastic strands to transmit information on flashes of light. These wires are extremely small, but also extremely fragile. The researchers say they have created a low-cost method of harvesting waste energy from VLC — using the human body as an antenna. Their invention can recycle waste energy to power wearable devices — and possibly larger electronics as well.

metallic paint helped cut down on blurriness.

As part of the pregame show, the US Navy will conduct a flyover of Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium during anthem to commemorate 50 years of women flying in the service.

M&M’s has announced it is putting its iconic cartoon “spokescandies” on an “indefinite pause” and replacing them with actress Maya Rudolph after controversy following a mascot makeover last year. The brand said it didn’t expect the changes to their characters would “break the internet,” noting that “even a candy’s shoes can be polarizing.” Last year, the Green M&M got sneakers instead of heels, and the Brown M&M replaced her stilettos for block heels. The mascot makeover gained attention online, but some commentators took it more seriously, calling them “woke” and “less sexy”. Rudolph will appear in an M&M’s ad during this year’s Super Bowl.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
Last month, we found out that Monty Python’s famous “silly walk” is an ideal exercise for burning calories. Well, this isn’t quite as extreme, but Michael Mosely, a medical writer and former doctor, says that while you might think that running up a hill is better for you than jogging down it, or that climbing a flight of stairs challenges your muscles more than walking down, in fact, the opposite is true. This counter-intuitive approach is part of the new science of ‘eccentric exercise’. The name comes from the fact that contracting your muscles (to climb stairs or lift weights) is called ‘concentric exercise’, but any work that goes into those muscles while they are stretched out (like when you go downstairs or lower the weights) – that’s known as ‘eccentric exercise’ (pronounced ‘ee-centric’). It’s a rather long and complicated explanation, but after performing these exercises, your body burns more calories in the process of repair and recovery. That means an increase in metabolic rate…and it increases strength in a far more effective way than conventional exercises. Test subjects have also shown greater improvements in resting heart rate, insulin sensitivity and blood fat levels.

A Tennessee animal shelter reunited a homeless mother with her beloved dog Lilo after she was forced to give up the pet due. In early Jan., Lilo was found wandering the streets of Chattanooga with a handwritten note attached to her collar, reading: “Please love me. My mom can’t keep me and is homeless with 2 kids. She tried her best but can’t get help…She really loves me and I’m a great dog and love to be loved on. Please don’t abuse me.” Lilo was taken to the McKamey Animal Center, where director Lauren Mann says staff “all cried reading the note” and decided to try to reunite the owner with her pet. On social media, Lilo’s owner was asked to contact them so that they could assist with connecting the family with resources to help with their situation. When Lilo and her owner were reunited at the shelter last week, “There was not a dry eye in the room.” The family currently lives at a shelter that does not allow animals, but the animal center staff is working to help them find a new living arrangement which will include Lilo.
