If still feel tired after sleeping all night – try a mask. And we’re not talking about a medical mask! A new study has found that wearing an eye mask to sleep will help you feel more alert the next day. How? Researchers from Cardiff University found that the simple hack of blocking out as much light as possible will boost the sleeper’s alertness the following day. Some of those sources of light that may affect sleep quality include electronics, sunlight or street lamps. The study showed that those who wore an eye mask to sleep for a week performed better on cognitive and reaction time exercises. The study author said that masks could be an “effective and inexpensive solution” to improving alertness and work performance.

The names of movies often change when they're released in other countries, and sometimes the changes are honestly pretty hilarious. When the holiday hit Home Alone was released in France, it was reportedly renamed Mum, I Missed the Plane. A few years later, the sequel film, known in America as Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, was reportedly called Mum, I Missed the Plane Again and This Time I Am Lost in New York.


Chris Pine is finally willing to discuss the controversy surrounding the world premiere of “Don’t Worry Darling” at the Venice Film Festival, and the rumor that co-star Harry Styles publicly spat on him. While Pine’s rep shut down the narrative from the jump, now Pine is agreeing. In a new interview with Esquire, he says: “Harry did not spit on me. Harry is a very kind guy. I was on the plane…flying back from Venice…and my publicist wakes me up and says, ‘We have to craft a statement on what happened in Venice.’ She showed me the thing and it did look, indeed, like Harry spit on me. He didn’t spit on me.” Pine later indicated that Styles leaned down to whisper an inside joke.

Robert De Niro will star in and executive produce his first TV series, Netflix’s “Zero Day,” the streamer has announced. The logline for the 6-episode drama, a conspiracy thriller, goes like this: “‘Zero Day’ asks the question on everyone’s mind — how do we find truth in a world in crisis, one seemingly being torn apart by forces outside our control? And in an era rife with conspiracy theory and subterfuge, how much of those forces are products of our own doing, perhaps even of our own imagining?” Deep. No release date yet.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A study links obesity to poor memory.

When people talk about the “best” diets to lose weight, they’re usually not talking about its effect on the environment. But it seems some of the trendiest ways to lose weight may not only be unhealthy, they’re also some of the least “green”. A Tulane University study has found that the keto and paleo diets score among the lowest on overall nutrition quality and among the highest on carbon emissions. The study examined 6 popular diets, and estimated the meat-centric keto diet generates about 6.6 pounds of carbon dioxide for every 1,000 calories consumed. The paleo diet, which avoids grains and beans in favor of meats, nuts, and vegetables, received the next lowest diet quality score and also had a high carbon footprint, at 5.7 pounds of carbon dioxide per 1,000 calories. Vegan diets had the lowest carbon footprint, generating only 1.5 pounds of carbon dioxide per 1,000 calories consumed — less than 25% of that generated by the keto diet.

OK. NOW it’s alright to use the words “rage farming”, “trauma dumping” “hellscape” and “petfluencer”. is adding those 3 words, plus 310 others to keep up with the ever-changing modern lexicon. The online and language resource adds new words and definitions, and reworked definitions 4 times per year to keep up with how the English language is used in a modern context. For the record, “rage farming” is defined as intentionally provoking political opponents by posting inflammatory content on social media, to elicit angry responses and thus widespread exposure for the original poster, “trauma dumping” is to share intense, traumatic information or emotions with others, unsolicited, while “hellscape” is a place that’s hopeless or irredeemable. A petfluencer is “someone who attracts a following by posting content of their pet”. Also new this time around: “deadass”, which, if you have teens, you know means genuinely, sincerely or truly.

Huge jackpots are often played across multiple casinos: The reason the highest-paying Las Vegas casinos often have $1 million worth of jackpot prizes is due to their progressive slots that are linked to each other. Some even go as high as $10 million.

Blackjack, Craps and Roulette have the best odds: These games have the lowest house edge of 0.5% to 2.70%, in order.

Most casino chips have a computer chip: Many casinos use radio-frequency identification chips for various purposes, including security. Each RFID embedded chip allows casinos to track their chip’s movements.

They can ban you if you win too much, too often: Players who keep on winning and increasing their bankroll will get a visit from casino staff. They’ll deliver a polite warning that they cannot afford you and you’ll be asked to leave the gambling floor. Online casinos will do the digital equivalent.

Some players REALLY go for it: Many dealers have seen players who wear adult diapers in order to keep playing for as long as possible.
