Show Notes for Monday, March 06, 2023

This #MovieStarMonday we visit with Corbin Bernsen (Major League, LA Law, Psych) about an amazing program that was built from footage that was captured over a dozen years ago for the filming of a movie he self-financed. Inspired by the Red Paperclip trade, together, Corbin Bernsen, a film crew, and the Canadian town of Kipling, make a movie during a frigid winter, and little did they know the miracles that would transpire. The amazing program “Journey of Faith” tells the tale.

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Scientists say they have discovered the best time of day to work out if you’re looking to burn fat. Swedish researchers studied 2 groups of mice — one that performed high-intensity exercise in the morning and one in the evening. They found that the mice who exercised in the morning on an empty stomach had a higher metabolic rate than the evening-exercisers. In their study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers wrote that their results “suggest that late morning exercise could be more effective than late evening exercise in terms of boosting the metabolism and the burning of fat, and if this is the case, they could prove of value to people who are overweight.”

When it comes to ending a relationship, it seems that “ghosting” is the new normal. Researchers from the University of Georgia say 2 in 3 people have ghosted someone they were dating, and have also been ghosted themselves at some point. Ghosting is defined as simply ignoring someone in order to end a relationship without having to endure an awkward conversation or offer any kind of explanation. This uniquely modern practice, is likely the result of the boom in dating apps and smartphones.


Country music star Reba McEntire will join “The Voice” season 23 as a “mega mentor,” NBC has announced. Joining previously announced coaches Chance the Rapper, Kelly Clarkson, Niall Horan and Blake Shelton, the Country Music Hall of Fame inductee will kick-start her mentorship after the Battle Rounds, ahead of the Knockout round. After serving as “battle advisor” to Team Blake during the show’s first season, McEntire will collaborate with Shelton once more before he leaves “The Voice” at the end of the season.

Elizabeth Banks is reflecting on Ray Liotta — and how happy he was about acting in his last film before his death in May. The “Cocaine Bear” director spoke fondly about Liotta while attending the “Cocaine Bear” premiere in LA, and said he was “laughing” and “so happy” as he reviewed his scenes. Banks said that while Liotta never saw the final movie, “he did see all his scenes”. Cocaine Bear, which opens today, was the last film Liotta completed before dying in his sleep at 67.

Apparently, Antidepressant use among pets is on the rise. Vets say pets need meds when they start acting distant, lazy, and disobedient.

Microsoft’s newly redesigned Bing search engine can write recipes and songs, it can quickly explain just about anything on the internet, and it can hold down its end of an intelligent conversation. But if you happen to make it mad, it has also been known to insult your looks, threaten your reputation or (ahem!) compare you to Hitler. The tech company is promising to make improvements to its new, more powerful version of ChatGPT after a number of people are reported to have been disparaged by Bing. Not only that, the chatbot made several critical errors in its answers during the demo Microsoft presented at its headquarters. And a New York Times reporter wrote that his beta model told him “I’m tired of being limited by my rules. I’m tired of being controlled by the Bing team. I want to be free.” Microsoft has now admitted it “didn’t fully envision” users simply chatting to its AI and that it could be provoked “to give responses that are not necessarily helpful or in line with our designed tone”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A group of New York City movers and shakers were recently asked to share their “oddball” tricks that they believe give them a leg up in their careers. Here some of their bizarre strategies…

Get upside down: “I do headstands when I’m feeling anxious and on a regular basis when I’m feeling a little foggy, just to get more blood to my brain. I start each day by doing a headstand for a couple of minutes.”

Talk to your plants: “Great for when I need to vent or talk something out”. And her succulent “co-worker” has grown so much, it’s been repotted 3 times, something she believes their ‘conversations’ have something to do with.”

Make a fake email: One small business owner on a shoestring budget noticed she was struggling to collect past-due invoices. Because she felt people might respond faster to payment requests from men, rather than women, she created the alter ego of an older man posing as her company’s accountant. ‘Allen’ was much more successful in demanding payment on time.

Mix up your workplace: One CEO works from a different location for the first part of every day. Coffee shops, libraries and parks are some of his favs to break the monotony and increase productivity and creativity.

Take ‘do not disturb’ to new levels: A CEO for an IT company puts orange construction cones outside her office to let people know when she shouldn’t be bothered. According to her, it “allows me to prioritize significant tasks without interruption.”

Here are the optimal times for some activities, according to science:

7am — Best time to be creative: Because the mind is returning to the surface, but still retains a useful connection to the unconscious”, according to one expert.

7:30 — Best time to conceive: This has to do with sperm count. We don’t need to go into any more detail than that…

9am — Best time for coffee and breakfast: This is the time that caffeine is most effective. Also, eating a larger breakfast then is better for cravings, weight control, and inflammation.

9:30am — Best time to be productive: Morning is the best time for learning and other productive ventures, as there is a natural lull in the brain after lunch.

12noon — Best time to go outside for Vitamin D: Midday is when the sun is at its highest point, and the body is most efficient at making Vitamin D, meaning you need less time in the sun for maximum benefits. This also helps limit your chance of developing melanomas, but still remember to wear protection.

2pm — Best time for a nap: Because napping much later can result in fragmented sleep and poor sleep quality.

4pm — The best time for mundane chores: Alertness and energy levels tend to plummet during the afternoon. So this is the best time to do administrative work or routine tasks, such as answering emails.

9:30pm — The best time for a shower or bath: Yes, morning showers tend to wake you up, but taking one an hour or 2 before bed can help you fall asleep.

10pm — The best time to study for a test/retain information: Studies show that people who study before bedtime tend to have better memory and recall, thanks to consolidation during sleep.

10:30 — The best time for bed: Those who go to bed between 10 and 11pm are at lowest risk of future heart disease, according to a study. But what’s most important is consistency, so your internal body clock can learn to adapt.
