SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Sure, when someone sends you a text with a whole bunch of emojis in it, it usually SEEMS as though they are a happy, bubbly person. But that’s not necessarily the case. A new study out of the University of Tokyo says that people use emojis to hide how they really feel, just as much as they use them to express themselves. In an experiment involving 1,300 Gen-Z females, it was found that happy emojis were often used to mask negative emotions and to make a message seem more positive. More negative emojis, such the “sad face”, were only used when the participant felt very strong negative feelings. People were most likely to use positive emojis when they’re feeling negative emotions or when communicating with people of higher status.

A new hormone shot could be the solution to getting sober faster. University of Texas researchers say their study shows that the hormone FGF21 might be able to reverse the effects of alcohol in half the time. The hormone works to help regulate your metabolism, and is naturally produced in our livers, but having an extra dose of it could be helpful when drinking.


Jason Sudeikis has given a discouraging update about the future of “Ted Lasso”. It’s long been speculated that the Apple TV+ series would conclude with its third season, and now, he has seemingly confirmed that. Speaking to Deadline, Sudeikis said: “This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell…The fact that folks will want more and are curious beyond…Season 3 — it’s flattering. Maybe by May 31, once all 12 episodes of the season [have been released], they’re like, ‘Man, you know what, we get it, we’re fine.’” When pressed, Sudeikis did seem to leave the door open just a crack to the possibility of a spinoff.

HBO’s penultimate episode 8 of “The Last Of Us” delivered 8.1 million viewers Sunday night across HBO Max and linear telecasts. That’s up 74% from the series debut in January and sets a new series high ahead of next Sunday’s season finale. The Last Of Us was also the top title overall on HBO Max for the 8th consecutive week. The average audience for the series’ first 5 episodes is now approaching 30 million viewers across all platforms, according to HBO.

"The Last of Us” was officially renewed for a Season 2 by HBO in January, but the creators are planning “more than one season” to tell the much larger story from the video game’s sequel, “The Last of Us: Part II.” The game’s part 2, released in 2020, on which the series is based, tells a bigger, more complex story than part 1. There are many more characters, flashbacks and action set pieces, and the creators of the HBO adaptation, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, have confirmed that it will definitely take more than one season for the story of part 2 to be adequately told. The creators wouldn’t reveal if the “Part II” story would get 2 or 3 seasons, but Mazin said, “more than one is factually correct.”

Could it soon be “Previously recorded from New York, it’s Saturday night!”?? Post-production editors behind “Saturday Night Live” are ready to strike, and have set a deadline of April 1. Barring an agreement with NBCUniversal, the group of 12-20 editing crew members have announced that they intend to halt work and disrupt the show if bargaining sessions in their bid for pay increases and health benefits continue to stall. In the nearly 50-year history of SNL, the series has never before been targeted with a show-specific strike.

A survey claims that 45% of people believe in ghosts.

If your bank password is the same as your Facebook password, yeah, it’s time to change them both. As you know, using weak or the same passwords across websites can put your data at risk. And with stats showing the average internet user has more than 70 passwords, it’s no surprise that we tend to default to something that’s easy to remember, like a pet’s name or street name. But with some password-cracking bots able to run thousands of character combinations in an attempt at accessing your data, it a good idea to have a strong password. Here’s how to create one, according to an expert: Think of a phrase or a string of words that will be easy to remember. For example: “Flowersgrowoutside”. Then, add in some numbers and special characters. The password Flowersgrowoutside, with a number 3 instead of the “e” and a number “zero” instead of the letter “o”, and with a percent sign at the end, is much trickier for a hacker, human or bot, to crack.
