SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

If you’re trying to lose weight, eat peanuts. A study has found that eating lightly salted peanuts twice a day between meals leads to weight loss, lower blood pressure, and healthier fasting glucose levels. The researchers from Texas Tech University and the University of South Australia said in a release: “Peanuts are often avoided when people are trying to lose weight because they believe peanuts contains too many calories. However, peanuts actually have a high satiety value, meaning they keep you feeling fuller longer and that can be really helpful for those on a weight loss diet.”

There’s a scientific link between cleaning and improving your mood. Clinical psychologist Dr. Dawn Potter says that having a clean home can make you feel more in control, and has many mental health benefits. There are, of course, positives to the physical aspect, too. There’s plenty of research showing that physical activity reduces depressive symptoms and generally improves quality of life. So – here’s something to keep in mind as you consider your annual Spring cleaning (or Spring procrastinating): You don’t have to go all “Martha Stewart” on the whole place—just clean something. And that something should be your living room. Why? You’ll feel most accomplished if you go after the area that will benefit the most from your time, like the floor where your kids play or the coffee table where you sort your bills. Having that clean space to spend time in, may even give you the boost you need to move on to other areas – and it’ll definitely give you those mental and physical benefits we just talked about.

The world of ‘John Wick’ is getting even bigger. Producer Erica Lee has revealed the TV prequel “The Continental” will premiere this September. The 3-part series is set in 1975 and centers on the assassin hotel from the “John Wick” movies. Colin Woodell will play a young ‘Winston Scott’. The series will follow Winston has he faces demons from his past, while making his way through the New York underground to take control of the hotel. Mel Gibson is also set to appear in the show, along with Katie McGrath, Ray McKinnon and Adam Shapiro. “John Wick: Chapter 4” premiered in theatres on Friday, earning a franchise best $137.5 million in its opening weekend.

Sam Elliott enjoyed his time on the “Yellowstone” prequel “1883” so much, that he’d like to do a prequel to 1883. In a new interview, the 78-year-old said that he was so involved with his role that he was sorry to see it end – and he’s not the only one. Quote: “I think everybody was sad to see it over…I would have liked to have that wagon train go to Canada by then and just stay with it.” Because his character ‘Shea Brennan’ dies at the end of 1883, Elliott sees a way around that – a prequel. Quote: “Pick it up after the war…There’s plenty of stuff to do.”

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are rushing to sell their multi-million-dollar houses in LA before a new “mansion tax” kicks in. In November, voters supported a measure which is intended to raise up to $1 billion from luxury house sales to fund affordable housing projects. Beginning this Saturday, the sellers of homes valued between $5-10 million will pay a 4% tax to the city, and those selling homes over $10 million will pay a 5.5% tax. Celebs who recently sold their properties include Mark Wahlberg, who sold for $55 million, and Jim Carrey, who listed his property last month for $29 million.

Plant-based meat products are healthier and better for the environment than animal-based meats, say food scientists at the University of Bath. They wrote that their “review demonstrates overwhelming evidence that, as well as being far more sustainable compared to animal products in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, water use and land use, plant-based animal product alternatives also have a wide range of health benefits”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

French luxury accessory brand Coperni has unveiled its limited-edition “meteorite” handbag. Yup – a purse that is hand-carved from a meteorite that fell on Earth thousands of years ago. That’s gotta be expensive, right? Definitely. They’re selling right now for €40,000 (US $43,000). Coperni says the unique handbag “combines archeology, design, as well as classical and primitive art”. The Mini Meteorite Swipe Bag has the general shape of the brand’s iconic swipe bag, with a rougher finish, which makes sense considering that it’s hand-sculpted out of rock…or rather a real meteorite. The Coperni Meteorite bag measures 9 x 12 x 23 cm, but how much does it weigh? It’s about 2kg (4.4lbs) …heavy for an empty bag, but manageable. Each bag supposedly contains a piece of meteorite estimated to have fallen to Earth 55,000 years ago. LINK:

THE LIST: Brought to you by


Tiramisu: In 1972, it was added to the menu at an Italian restaurant as “Tirames├╣,” a contraction of a phrase meaning “pick me up” in the local dialect.

Chicken tikka masala: Created in a Glasgow restaurant in the 1970s when a customer complained the chicken tikka was dry. The owner decided to marinate it in yogurt and add a tomato-cream sauce.

Ciabatta: Far from being a centuries-old bread, ciabatta was created in 1982 by baker and racing driver Arnaldo Cavallari, in Italy.

Cavendish bananas: They’ve only been in stores since the 1960s. They’re remarkably consistent from country to country because commercial banana production essentially involves cloning the same plant over and over.

Baby carrots: Newsflash: They’re usually just regular carrots cut to a smaller size. They were invented in 1986 by a California farmer who was looking for a way to save the tons of carrots going to waste because they were wonky, twisted or broken.

Chocolate Chip cookies: Invented in 1938 by a restaurant owner in Massachusetts, who called it the Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie, after the name of her restaurant.

Hawaiian pizza: The world’s most controversial pizza was invented in 1962 – in Canada, of course. (Where did you think?)

Nachos: Invented in a Mexican border city in 1940 when a restaurant worker needed to rustle up a quick snack for some American military wives. He chopped some tortillas into triangles, fried them and topped them with grated cheese and jalapeno peppers.
