SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

It’s no secret that furry friends hold a special place in their owners’ hearts, and in a survey of 2,000 pet owners in the US, 8 in 10 said that their pets are their #1 source of joy. In fact, 6 in 10 pet owners admit to confiding in their pets when they have a bad day — and even prefer to snuggle up with them rather than with their partner.

Before you get all fancied up to go out this weekend, think about THIS: A new study has revealed the horrifying number of bacteria that accumulates on unwashed makeup brushes, no matter where they’re stored. Conducted by cosmetic tools brand Spectrum Collections, researchers swabbed makeup brushes at the end of the 2-week trial period, while also testing various common storage methods: at a bedroom vanity, in a makeup bag, in a brush-specific bag, a drawer and a bathroom holder. The study found that regardless of where the brushes are stored, the number of bacteria was either the same or more than those usually found on a toilet seat.

Stranger Things” character ‘Eddie Munson’ will get his own prequel story in the form of a new book, set to arrive on October 31. “Stranger Things: Flight of Icarus”, was written by author Caitlin Schneiderhan, the co-writer of the show’s next season. The story takes place in 1984, 2 years before the events of season 4, and follows metalhead Munson as he embarks on a musical career with his band Corroded Coffin. In order to fund his dreams, however, he must work alongside his father on various shady ventures.

As the search for the next ‘James Bond’ presses on, video game company Unwind Media enlisted the help of DeepDream artificial intelligence software to manufacture the ideal 007. The current requirements for the secret agent — being under 40, and, of course, devilish good looks – were entered into the AI generator. The result bares a striking resemblance to actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, he of the chiseled jaw and tousled hair. Coincidentally, the 32-year-old “Bullet Train” star is on the short list of Hollywood heartthrobs rumored to be in the running for the coveted Bond role.

Morning breath – 74%

On a social media post about the need for blood donations one guy commented that he doesn’t donate because he was told “by a nurse” that blood donated by anyone over the age of 50 is thrown out. This is false.

If you and another person — a friend, your partner, a coworker — are having trouble deciding what to do, try the 5-2-1 approach.

You pick 5 things.
Your partner eliminates down to 2.
You pick the final thing.

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

Power tool manufacturer Makita recently unveiled the world’s first cordless microwave oven. Mockups of the same idea have been doing the rounds online as April’s fools jokes for years, but the Japanese company decided to surprise everyone with a market-ready, battery-powered oven that can reheat foods and drinks on the go. The new Makita MW001G microwave oven can reheat about 11 refrigerated lunches or 20 drinks on two fully charged 40V batteries. It weighs just 19.4 lbs (8.8 kg).

THE LIST: Brought to you by


A Harvard-trained psychologist says it’s a given that there will be conflict with even the happiest couples. The ones who use these phrases tend to last…

⇒ “I appreciate your effort.” Happy couples express gratitude for each other’s efforts.

⇒ “I like you.” The healthiest couples don’t just love each other, they like each other, too. You can also be more specific about exactly it is that you like about your significant other.

⇒ “Help me better understand this.” We all have different upbringings, vulnerabilities, values and beliefs that shape how we think relationships should work. This is a good conflict-resolver.

⇒ “I’m listening…” Disagreements are inevitable, but it’s important to still support each other through active listening.

⇒ “I’m sorry.” When things don’t go right, healthy couples know that both partners play a part in the situation, and want to take responsibility for their role in the conflict.

⇒ “I forgive you. Can you forgive me?” Studies have shown that couples who practice forgiveness are more likely to enjoy longer, more satisfying relationships.

⇒ “I am committed to you.” This reassures your partner that you want to be with them and to work through challenge, helping create a sense of safety and stability.

⇒ “Let’s have some fun!” If you can find humor (or playfully tease) during tense moments, your relationship might be stronger than you think. This can also involve going out for some fresh air or doing something together that you both enjoy.

⇒ “I love you.” You saw this one coming. But when you say it, make sure you really mean it.
