Now, the good news: Getting regular, uninterrupted sleep might help those who are trying to lose weight, according to the Sleep and Heath Research Program at the University of Arizona. In a study where participants’ sleep habits were monitored over the course of a year while they sought to attain dietary and fitness goals, researchers found that better sleep health was associated with a higher rate of attendance in group sessions, closer adherence to caloric intake goals, and participants’ physical exercise duration increasing over time. The director of the program said: “This was a great example showing how sleep isn’t just tied to weight itself, it’s tied to the things we’re doing to help manage our own weight.”

A group of scientists say they believe that life has already been found on Mars. They say they’ve spotted fossilized sponges, corals, worm eggs, algae, fungi, lichen, shrimp, crabs, sea spiders, scorpions, and even a translucent millipede, on the surface of the Red Planet. Other groups of like-minded researchers have published 4 peer-reviewed papers setting out their reasoning for believing proof of life is already there, detailing the supposed existence of “fungi growing out of the ground” and “unusual specimen that may have been in a hole and two days later is outside the hole.”

CBS may be ending “The Late Late Show” later this year, and possibly replacing it with a reboot of “@Midnight”. James Corden announced last year that he will be leaving The Late Late Show at the end of its current season to move back to the UK, and CBS has yet to announce a replacement host, but according to a report, they may not be hosting the same show. @Midnight was a Comedy Central late-night show hosted by Chris Hardwick that aired 2013-17, and it may be getting a revival on CBS.

Months after Jeremy Renner’s devastating snow plow accident, Disney+ has unveiled the trailer for his feel-good project “Rennervations”, which features the “”Hawkeye” actor and a team of expert builders as they travel the world in search of decommissioned vehicles that they can rebuild to serve a new purpose for communities in need. The four-part Disney+ series, which Renner calls “a driving force” in his recovery, was filmed prior to his accident, and will also feature his “Avengers” co-star Anthony Mackie, Vanessa Hudgens, Anil Kapoor and Sebasti├ín Yatra. “Rennervations” will hit Disney+ on April 12.

Chris Rock’s controversial Netflix special has cracked the streamer’s Top 10 TV list in the US with just one day of viewing data. After airing live on Saturday night, “Chris Rock: Selective Outrage” ranked #7 in TV shows watched in the US for the week, as viewers caught the one-episode special Saturday evening through Sunday. The platform’s first foray into live programming also has a running time of just one hour, far shorter than the typical Netflix series.

In an interview, Julia Roberts said her kids have no idea she’s famous.

Great idea. A life coach says if you’re single, you should take yourself on a date once a week. Chantelle Dyson says there’s no reason not to treat yourself if you’re at a point in life where you’re without a significant other, so go to a concert…go to a restaurant…heck, go on vacation by yourself. After becoming a divorcee at age 26, she decided she didn’t want to miss out on life, and decided to do things on her own and enjoy singlehood. So, she started taking herself on dates to spend quality time alone, such as reading in the park, having a solo movie night and going to concerts. Now she advises others to do the same, and says spending time alone allows people to “truly understand themselves” and have “better success” when they do decide to date. She also suggests that while on a solo date, you set yourself challenges to push yourself out of your comfort zone. One example: “Speak to 5 strangers.”

If your pupper gets suspiciously few compliments about how “cute” he is when you’re out and about, this contest might be for him. Applications are now being accepted for the 2023 “World’s Ugliest Dog” competition. According to the official website, the goal is to celebrate “the imperfections that make all dogs special and unique.” Organizers claim: “The annual World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is not about making fun of ‘ugly’ dogs, but having fun with some wonderful characters and showing the world that these dogs are really beautiful.” If your furry friend might suit the bill, you’re asked to file an application online, including a photo, short biography and vaccine records. The official competition will take place on June 23 at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California, with a first-place prize of $1,500 plus a trophy declaring them the “World’s Ugliest Dog.” Last year’s winner was a 17-year-old Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix named Mr. Happy Face, who definitely had some ruff competition, judging by the pics on the website.

SIGNS YOU’RE ADDICTED TO ONLINE SHOPPING:

You’ve forgotten what’s in the box when it gets delivered: Forgetting what you ordered is a sign you’re on spending autopilot, which is a slippery slope to debt. (When this happens to me, it always turns out to be something my wife ordered – that SHE can’t remember. Hey…WAIT a minute…!)

You shop when you’re bored or lonely: Online shopping has a way of pulling you from boredom into an emotionally engaging place. This is the effect of dopamine (a naturally produced chemical in your brain). The problem is that this surge of excitement is short-lived, so you go looking for that “rush” again. Try a 24 hour pause between filling your cart and actually hitting the ‘buy’ button to see if your purchase is a need or a want.

Your credit card balance mysteriously keeps rising: You’ve just consolidated your debt, and now your credit card balances are up again. What’s going on? You need to make a budget — and stick to it. Whatever is left over for discretionary spending, “Have at ‘er!” (The problem is that I think “she” already did…)

There are unopened packages or price tags on previous orders: The fact that you’re considering rounding up all of those items and selling them on Facebook Marketplace kinda shines a light on your overspending problem. Time to take some of that earlier advice.

Family and friends comment on your shopping habits: And not in a good way. If they’ve made comments, or have sat you down for a full intervention, they’re bringing it up because it seems you’re struggling. Change starts with finding a reason to do so. For your kids? For the freedom that savings could bring you? Is it for your wellness? If you can find that reason, you can find the initiative to change.

People spend one-sixth of their lifetime trying to enhance their physical appearance, according to research published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior. Survey data from 93,000 participants across 93 countries and various cultures was analyzed by an international research team. It considered the application of cosmetics, hair grooming, clothing style, body hygiene, exercise and dietary habits as actions taken to better one’s looks. Women were found to spend an average of 4 hours per day, with men averaging just above 3½ hours primping in some way.

Pete Davidson and his girlfriend, Chase Sui Wonders, crashed their car into a Beverly Hills home Saturday night, police have confirmed. The “Saturday Night Live” alum had been driving a Mercedes-Benz “at a high rate of speed” around 11 pm when he jumped a curb in the Flats neighborhood, according to a report. Davidson reportedly also hit a fire hydrant and skidded across the front lawn before slamming into the corner of the house. Photos of the site show the siding on one corner of the home was broken and pushed inward. Neither was apparently injured, and police are still investigating.

Bruce Willis’ wife Emmy Heming Willis has made an emotional plea to paparazzi to stop yelling or otherwise distracting her husband to get his attention. In an IG video, she asked “photographers and video people that are trying to get those exclusives of my husband out and about: Just keep your space. I know this is your job, but maybe just keep your space.” She also asked that people don’t yell at him or ask how he’s doing, and avoid “the woohoo-ing and the yippee ki yays” in order to “give our family or whoever’s with him that day to be able to get him from point A to point B safely.” Her post video came after an outing was hampered by media attempting to capture a rare public appearance by Willis, who has been diagnosed with dementia.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck can’t make up their minds – they’ve pulled the plug on the Pacific Palisades home which they seemed set on buying for $34.5 million. TMZ says the couple were supposed to close escrow on Friday, but just before it was signed, sealed and delivered, they pulled out. Why? Sources say they are now in escrow on another house – and at least one home they viewed last week is listed for more than twice what they were spending on the one that they just bailed on. That would put it near $70 million.

A study claims that those who are divorced are about 25% more likely to die early than those who are married.

Janie’s Life-Changing Baked Goods is known for its pie crust cookies — and giving employees a second chance. Owner Janie Deegan discovered a love of baking when she was 25 and recovering from addiction. She found baking to be “a beautiful, meditative, very controlled artistic outlet.” When she decided to open a bakery in Manhattan, Deegan wanted to give others an opportunity to start over as well. She has an open-door hiring policy, meaning if someone is “ready, willing, able, and enthusiastic about coming to work”, she isn’t “going to look at your past situations or gaps on your resume or if you’re homeless or been in prison. The person you show up to the interview as is the person we’re looking for.” That’s been her recipe for success — she now has 2 bakeries and 15 employees.

A man in Spain has been ordered to pay his ex-wife $215,000 for 25 years of unpaid domestic labor. The record divorce settlement was calculated by a judge, based on the annual minimum wage throughout the couple’s marriage. The man must also pay his ex-wife, Ivana Moral, a monthly “pension” of $527, as well as $422 and $633 to his 20-year-old and 14-year-old daughters. The woman said she and her daughters were “left with nothing” when the couple, who married in 1995, were divorced in 2020.

A Redditor asked, “What’s the most under-utilized ingredient by home cooks that pro chefs use all the time?” Here are some of the best responses…

✓ “Pasta water! My Italian grandma always used salty, starchy pasta water to amp up her sauces. It really is a game changer.”

✓ “Lemon juice. It enhances the flavor in almost anything you’re cooking. Vinegar is too dominant, but lemon juice adds just the right taste.”

✓ “MSG. Disregard those who say it’s bad for you (or gives you headaches and whatnot). Those claims have been disproven for years.”

✓ “Fresh herbs. The difference between fresh basil or curry leaves and the dried stuff is basically night and day.”

✓ “Instant mashed potatoes. I use it to thicken soups instead of using cream or a roux, and it’s such a game changer.”

✓ “Peanut butter. Just a little bit of creamy p.b. can thicken up many sauces — like a roux traditionally would. It adds a complex, toasted umami component to the flavor. Just don’t overdo it!”

✓ “Fish sauce. It is a secondary source of salt that also brings another dimension of flavor.”

✓ “Toasted sesame oil. It adds a light nuttiness and saltiness to a dish.”

✓ “Bacon fat. Save leftover bacon grease and use it instead of olive oil or butter when you’re making anything that could use a little extra flavor boost.”

✓ “Good-quality butter. It’s amazing people will happily slather their bread with loads of butter, but they balk at using a couple of tablespoons in cooking. That right there is the source of restaurant-level flavor.”

✓ “White wine. Lots of chefs add a dash of lemon or lime juice to their food, but I think white wine works even better.”

Although we’ve always been told that wisdom comes with age, 1 in 9 seniors say they still don’t have life figured out. A survey of 2,000 Americans 64 and older dispels the idea that older people have all the answers – even though more than half said that everyone expects them to. 54% of seniors said they feel like there’s “always” or “often” pressure on them to make the best decisions, and nearly one-fifth feel that decision-making actually gets harder as they get older (17%). The survey found that older folks used to feel very confident about making large financial purchases and investing on their own, but one-third would now consult others about those decisions beforehand.

Keeping up with the latest news can be very bad for your health, according to a study. Last year, researchers at Texas Tech University found that those who obsessively follow the news are more likely to suffer from both physical and mental health problems, including anxiety and stress. Those who constantly check the latest headlines end up with “significantly greater physical ill-being”, that can lead to a vicious cycle where people check for updates more and more often.

James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water” broke box office records when it was released at Christmas, and after months at the theater, it is finally hitting home video — with 3 hours of bonus features. The movie will be available for purchase from all major digital retailers (including Prime Video, and Apple TV) beginning March 28. Unlike other blockbusters, The Way of Water will premiere on digital retailers before streaming or physical media. But don’t worry, this digital edition will be worth it. Among the extras will be features that chart the evolution and production of the groundbreaking blockbuster, delving into the the intricacies of Pandora’s habitats, along with the blood, sweat and tears that went into its actualization.

Elon Musk will be the center of a new documentary from Alex Gibney, the Oscar-winning director of “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.” Already months into production, Gibney announced the project Monday, saying he’s “hugely excited”.

A grandmother in Arizona made sure her funeral would reflect her colorful and fun personality — with an M&M-shaped casket. Mary Stocks Martin died Feb. 9, at the age of 86. Her grandson told a TV reporter that the retired teacher “used to initial everything ‘MSM,’ but that ‘S,’ in cursive…looks like M&M. The students started bringing her M&Ms, memorabilia and it turned into something that she reflected on as part of her success as a teacher.” Martin built her M&M-shaped casket, with help from her son, years before her death. It was modeled after her favorite M&M spokecandy — the one named “Blue”. It featured the close-eyed M&M while his hands held miniature candies bearing the names of Martin’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Parts of the M&M-themed funeral were shared in a video slideshow that was uploaded to TikTok, and has been viewed more than 9 million times. LINK: https://tinyurl.com/2ncs375v

FOODS YOU CAN EAT PAST THEIR “BEST-BEFORE” DATE:

Butter: It is safe to eat past its best before date as long as it’s been stored properly and doesn’t show any signs of spoilage (mold, change in color or texture). Butter is good for a month after the best before date in the fridge – and up to a year in the freezer. (Sure, it’s safe to eat – but I still can’t afford it!)

Bread: Yes, it will go stale, but as long as it’s not moldy, it’s safe to eat. If stale, try toasting it or using it for breadcrumbs. If it has mold – trash it.

Hard cheese: It’s usually safe to eat for months after its best before date. In fact, aging actually improves the flavor of many cheeses. Just make sure it’s stored in the fridge, in an airtight container.

Canned foods: They’re safe as long as the can is intact and the contents look and smell normal. Keep canned foods in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight or heat.

Dry cereal: It doesn’t go bad the same way that things like meat or dairy products do because it is processed, and designed for a long shelf life. Generally, cereal is good for up to a year past its best before date. (The cereal my kids eat isn’t even “good” to begin with!)

Hard candy: Good news – That leftover Halloween candy you found under the sofa is probably still good. Candy has a long shelf life because it contains preservatives and is often packaged in a way to prevent contamination. Sugar also acts as a natural preservative.

If current trends continue, half of the world’s population will be overweight or obese by 2035, according to a new report by the World Obesity Federation. The findings, published in the World Obesity Atlas 2023, suggest the global obesity epidemic will continue to snowball if prevention and treatment measures do not improve.

Additionally, 1 in 4 people are predicted to be obese — a staggering jump from the 1 in 7 living with obesity now. People with a body mass index of more than 25 are considered overweight, while obesity is defined as a BMI of over 30.

Jenny Ortega is living the dream with the title role in Netflix’s smash hit “Wednesday”, but she has revealed she very nearly turned down the role. Ortega – who enjoyed a separate triumph with her comedic turn on “SNL” on the weekend – initially wasn’t interested in the role, saying when she “got the email”, she “passed on it”, because she had already done a lot of TV, and wanted to concentrate on a film career. It was only the lure of director and exec producer Tim Burton that persuaded her reconsider. Ortega said even though he is “such a legend”, he still had to ask her “a few more times” before she eventually relented — going on to star in what has become the second-most watched English-language show in Netflix’s history.

The $800 clue: “Penalty killing, plus-minus, the five-hole, ‘the biscuit’ (that’s what everyone’s chasing).” No one guessed. The Answer: Hockey.

The $600 clue: “Eight-count, accidental butt, cutman (for said accidental butt).” Silence. The Answer: Boxing.

FOUND ON ROAD DEACTIVATED:

Automaker Ford has filed a patent application for a device that could lock owners out of their cars if they miss payments. The patent describes how the internet operates, the network connected to your car, and according to Vice, potential scenarios – including how a lending bank or institution could use an app or infotainment system to bring up your late payments. From there, the car could start having features disabled like the radio, or GPS, until payment is brought up to date. The car could “escalate” to shutting down the A/C, automatic locks, or even not operating during times of the day that the vehicle is not needed for work. The car could make a loud buzz or other noise that would make driving the vehicle unpleasant, all before finally just locking you out of the car. From there, the car could end up helping in its own repossession, possibly even moving autonomously to an area where it would be easier to tow. LINK: https://tinyurl.com/ycy93ey5

➢ “Getting booted off the internet when someone in the other room picked up the phone.”

➢ “Ask Jeeves”

➢ “Discussion boards for specific topics. I met a lot of cool people, some of which I’m still in contact with a good decade and a half later.”

➢ “An internet that didn’t have any advertising.”

➢ “I remember when Amazon was just an online bookstore.”

➢ “The hit counter on the bottom of webpages that told you how many people had visited the page.”

➢ “The Napster and Lars Ulrich (Metallica) drama.”

➢ “How about: the sound of dialup??”
