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.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

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.”

Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

Laughter synchronizes the brains of both speaker and listener so that they become emotionally attuned.

Eating garlic improves your body odor.

A woodpecker’s tongue wraps around its brain to protect it during high-speed pecking.

Although Saturn is the second-largest planet in our solar system, it is also the lightest.

The tallest volcano on Mars is 17 miles (27.3km) high – 84 times taller than the Eiffel Tower.

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.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


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.
