If you’re feeling stressed out – Hang in there – it gets better as you get older. While perhaps the 20s should be the best years of your life, according to a new study, it’s actually the most stressful decade of many people’s lives. But the National Study of Daily Experiences found in a 20-year study that over time, adults experienced an 11% reduction in the occurrence of “stressor days”, and young adults – participants under the age of 30 – experienced a much steeper reduction of 47% in their levels of stress reactivity over time. The researchers say their study shows that not only does life get less stressful as we advance through adulthood, for most people, it becomes easier to handle stressful events.

There’s an App that lets you rate prostitutes.
Since its launch late last year, ChatGPT has been used to generate student essays, write wedding vows, and even compose rousing sermons. Now, a Japanese city has revealed plans to use the AI chatbot . . . to help run the government. Yokosuka City announced last week that it will begin using ChatGPT to help with administrative tasks. A news release (no doubt written by AI) said all employees will be authorized to use the chatbot to “summarize sentences, check spelling errors, and create ideas.” The move was made in part as a response to the country’s dwindling population crisis. The release says that with ChatGPT handling administrative tasks, “staff can focus on work that can only be done by people, pushing forward an approach that brings happiness for our citizens.”
Are you ready for really persuasive AI-generated spam emails? Because they’re coming. John Licato, Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Director of AMHR Lab at the University of South Florida, says the use of AI could allow spammers “to target individuals and make their messages more persuasive based on easily accessible information, such as social media posts.” He believes that both spammers and legit marketers could benefit from being able to predict more about individuals, quickly learning about your political leanings, marital status or life priorities. That also means spammers might find it easier to sneak past your email filters, and, with the right approach and choice of words, entice you to actually open and read it.

An NYC dentist has revealed what he calls the 4 mistakes people make that are ruining their teeth. Dr. Gerry Curatola, the founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry, says you should avoid these at all costs…
✗Mouthwash: Curatola calls it “another manmade creation by the consumer products industry.” He says experts warn against frequent usage due to potential teeth staining from dyes, removal of the mouth’s healthy microbiome and even a potential cancer risk.
✗Root Canals: This treatment involves removing bacteria and decay from the tooth, disinfecting the area, filling the roots, and sealing them to prevent further decay. The good dentists says “It’s the only procedure we do where we keep human dead tissue inside you.” According to him, “These are bacteria and bacterial byproducts that can dysregulate your immune system.”
✗Charcoal toothpaste: Activated charcoal has surged in popularity with promises of whitening teeth and providing fresh breath. But Curatola warns it can be abrasive: “It’s the equivalent of using Ajax on your teeth. If you’re brushing with it every day, you’re going to wave your enamel away, and your teeth are going to get more sensitive.”
✗ Metal Fillings: While not widespread anymore, the dentist warns that mercury content in the fillings has the potential to release mercury vapor into the mouth, which could be inhaled by the lungs.
