Really, who doesn’t wish those strawberries in your fridge would last just a few days longer? Or that fresh fruit that’s been sitting in the bowl on the counter for almost a week? Now, Researchers in Texas have developed a protein-based coating designed to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. Rice University researchers came up with the egg-based coating, which they say reduces spoilage in produce, with the aim of addressing both food preservation and waste management challenges. They say their invention could help improve access to fresh produce in “food deserts” – areas with poor access to healthy and affordable foods. They say their invention is biodegradable, and could be beneficial to the environment as well.

New research suggests that if you’re feeling alone or dissatisfied, attending live sports events may help you improve your level of well-being and reduce that feeling of loneliness. Researchers from Britain’s Anglia Ruskin University’s School of Psychology and Sport Science analyzed data from 7,200 adults, and found that those who had seen any type of sports event live within the past year were more likely to say they were satisfied and had a greater sense of “life being worthwhile.” Researchers observed the same impact with loneliness. They say the benefits received from attending a sport in person is comparable to that of being employed. And physical participation in sport also improves well-being and reduces loneliness.

Curb your expectations about “Curb Your Enthusiasm” continuing: It looks like the upcoming 12th season could be its last. In a tweet that has since been deleted, producer Jon Hayman suggested the fun will soon come to an end on the Larry David comedy. Hayman wrote: “Maybe you love the show. Maybe you hate the show. Maybe you don’t give a (heck). In any event, shooting the last scene of the last episode of the final season.” No comment so far from HBO.

Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner reportedly caught COVID-19 last year, which allegedly led to production delays for the hit Paramount series. The first half of the show’s 5th season ended in January, but more delays this year mean that the second half might end up airing when a potential 6th season should have. Costner reportedly contracted COVID after his promotional trip to the Calgary Stampede in July. Instead of giving producers more of his time, Costner said his shooting window elapsed, and left, according to a report. This forced the cast and crew to reassemble at a later date to film his scenes, adding to the show’s costs and angering Costner’s co-stars.

A naked man in Louisiana was arrested and charged with a slew of crimes after leading police on a wild goose-chase.

Here's a story of a criminal from Gainesville, Florida, where the cops answered a report of a suspicious person. It was quickly determined that he was under the influence of something and when an officer inquired about what was in his pockets, he came up with the Answer of the Week. He told them his pockets contained “Hypodermic needles. For Fishing.” When he couldn’t produce any evidence of just how he planned to use those needles to catch fish, the officers performed a quick search. He was found to be in possession of fentanyl.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A driver from New York state who was caught going nearly double the speed limit in Ontario told police they “didn’t realize” speed signs weren’t posted in miles per hour. Ontario Provincial Police say the driver was pulled over Niagara Falls, about a 10-minute drive from the border crossing. The speed limit in the area is 80 kilometres per hour, and the 52-year-old driver was allegedly caught going 142 kilometres per hour. But police aren’t buying his “I didn’t know Canada is metric” excuse…because if you convert 142 [kilometres per hour] to mph, “he was still going 90 miles an hour.”

THE LIST: Brought to you by

A Reddit user recently asked: “What everyday item is designed poorly, but we all sort of accept it?” Here are some of the very useful answers about useless things . . .

✗ “Those ‘convenient’ zip closures they started putting on everything a few years back. 80% of the time, when you rip them open at the little cut-outs, it doesn’t even open the bag, so you need scissors…and half the time they don’t seal properly.”

✗ “Soap pumps…The tube always goes right to the middle where there’s a divot in the plastic. You aren’t out of soap, but the soap is just around that divot where the pipe can’t reach it.”

✗ “I own the classic Pyrex glass measuring cup…It has a spout, yet still spills all over the place when you pour from it. Despite this, it’s a very common item.” (Hear, hear!!)

✗ “Kraft Dinner boxes with the push-to-open tab. I have never seen it work as it’s supposed to.” (At this point, that’s just an adorable eccentricity!)

✗ “The plastic film over the top of ready-to-eat meals. It always, ALWAYS splits and you can never get all of it off.”

✗ “Air blow hand dryers in public toilets. As far as I can see they do next to nothing.” (Wait, it gets better…)

✗ “Touchless sinks in public don’t stay on long enough to rinse soap off hands.” (Right? Sometimes they make me feel like I don’t even exist!)

✗ “The refrigerator’s ice dispenser shoots pieces of ice onto the floor, no matter how carefully you hold the glass against the unit.” (But the dog loves it…)

✗”Potato chip bags…Once they’re open, you have to learn how to close Pandora’s box to keep them safe and secure. Why has the chip industry not converted to simple resealable chip bags?
