SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Nappers who sleep more than half- hour in the middle of the day are more likely to be obese or suffer from high blood pressure, according to a new study. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that longer siesta-takers are more likely to have a higher Body Mass Index (BMI), higher blood pressure, and a cluster of other conditions linked to heart disease and diabetes. Meanwhile, those who took “power naps” of less than 30 minutes avoided these increased health risks — and even showed better blood pressure levels than those who avoid naps altogether.

Netflix’s famous red envelopes are headed to the recycling bin of history. The company has announced the shutdown of its DVD-by-mail business. Since 1998, the company has mailed out over 5 billion DVD and Blu-ray rentals to subscribers across the U.S. The final Netflix DVDs will be shipped out on Sept. 29, 2023, according to co-CEO Ted Sarandos.

Production on the 5th and final season of “Stranger Things” has been halted as the writer’s strike marches on. Matt and Ross Duffer, the show’s creators, announced the news in a Twitter post that said: “Writing does not stop when filming begins. While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike. We hope a fair deal is reached soon so we can all get back to work.” At this point, a release date has not been set for the show’s 5th season. It joins a growing group of Netflix series, including “Big Mouth” and “Cobra Kai,” that are facing production delays amid the ongoing writers’ strike.

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is keeping the momentum the box office enjoyed in April going with an estimated $114 million opening weekend. That’s on the lower end of box office projections, but the good news is that “Guardians Vol. 3” has earned stellar audience reception, the sort that Marvel used to enjoy on almost every film until it hit a rough patch with films like “Eternals,” “Thor: Love & Thunder,” and “Quantumania.” Vol. 3 has Rotten Tomatoes scores of 81% critics and 95% audience, along with an A on CinemaScore, matching the scores of the previous 2 “Guardians” films.

Judd Apatow thinks the studios and streamers already have an idea of when the writers strike may end. Speaking at a benefit in Malibu, the writer-director said: “I think they probably already know what they’re going to bend on.” He also said that he feels “they already know what date this is going to end. They’ve probably been planning this for years.” Apatow explained that he sees the strike as a calculated business move by Hollywood’s largest employers, and “they could have figured it out already. When these things conclude, you never go, ‘I understand why it took that long.’”

Christina Applegate says she’s “probably not going to work on-camera again”, but she will voice ‘Kelly Bundy’ in the upcoming “Married With Children” animated series. Applegate, who wrapped up her Netflix series “Dead to Me’ amid her battle with MS, said she “can’t even imagine going to set right now. This is a progressive disease.” But she said if the cartoon version of Married With Children” moves forward, she’s there for it.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

An invite-only alternative to Twitter has been growing in popularity over the past few weeks, as users unhappy with some of Elon Musk’s changes, hunt for other platforms. Bluesky (pron. ‘Blue Sky’) was developed by former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. It works a lot like Twitter does, with users setting up a profile and able to post, repost, and like and reply to other users. You can also follow others “in your network”, and the timeline is split into 2 feeds: One containing posts from users you follow, and a “What’s Hot” section that displays popular posts. At this point, the app is only available to those with an invite or on the waiting list. Celebs including Chrissy Teigan, Dril and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have all joined Bluesky, and so far, most users seem to be using it mainly to bash Twitter. Oh, one more point of interest: Another Bluesky user is Grimes, Elon Musk’s ex-girlfriend. LINK:

The world’s first artificial intelligence speed camera has just been launched in UK, and already, people are calling it “a step too far”. The controversial “creepy cam” has highly-advanced technology, making it able to watch what drivers are doing while inside their own vehicles. That’s right, motorists can now be caught via camera for a number of infractions, including not wearing a seatbelt, using mobile phones, or if there are too many people inside the vehicle. The new AI unit uses super high-spec ‘4D’ radar and super-resolution cameras to peer through vehicles windows, as well as perform the traditional traffic cam duties of detecting speeding or red-light offenses. What’s more, the Redspeed Sentio camera goes a step further by linking to police and government databases to check on a driver’s license and insurance status. Critics have slammed the 24-hour smart cams for invading drivers’ privacy, calling them “Big Brother’s cash machine”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Veronica Taylor has turned dumpster-diving into a $5,000 dollar per month job. The 32-year-old, from Quakertown PA, has salvaged items from household brands including Louis Vuitton and Michael Kors. While she makes a point of donates most of the food and hygiene products she finds to charities and the homeless, she sells the high-end items – and has turned what started as a hobby with her friend Liz Wilson, into a business. Their job takes them far and wide, driving from city to city to discover new bin locations. The ladies say their gig is like “being on vacation all the time”, having just returned from a 3-day trip to Boston. A typical night might find them “searching and hanging out” from 10pm-3am. Other times, they might “go to rich people neighborhoods” during the day, which Taylor says yields “fantastic” results.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


Studies show that 8 in 10 (82%) parents watch TV game shows with their kids, including “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” (39%) and “Wheel of Fortune” (37%). Here are the best of all-time, according to fans . . .

1. “Jeopardy” (1964 – present): This show has become an American institution. It’s fun to watch because it’s a game show you feel like you could play and win. (Well, not me, but maybe you…)

2. “Wheel of Fortune” (1964 – present): It’s the longest-running syndicated game show in the US, and cohosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White have been around for just about every spin of the wheel since the syndicated version premiered in 1983. (Just imagine how many vowels they’ve seen bought!)

3. “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” (1998 – present): Answer 15 questions and win a million dollars. What’s not to love? Originally a British import, this show debuted in the US in 1999 and quickly became a cultural phenomenon. (Yes, that’s my final answer!)

4. “Family Feud” (1976-present): The game, which pits families (and sometimes celebrities) against each other, is highly engaging and easy to play along with at home. (I watch it just to see Steve Harvey’s facial expressions!)

5. “The Price is Right” (1956 – present): Yes, people have been invited to “Come on Down!!!!” since 1956, and while these days, Drew Carey does a decent job as host, The Price Is Right made Bob Barker a legend, with his skinny microphone and welcoming hugs.
