SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Don’t be too hasty about returning to the office. A study has found that commuting to and from work can be atrocious for your health. Researchers from Stockholm University wrote: “A lengthy commute to work is associated with being less physically active, being overweight, and having sleep problems.” The science team found that commutes of just 2 miles (3.2km) were enough to increase the likelihood of being physically inactive, overweight and having poor sleep. And what’s more, they found that, depending on how far your office is from home, “you may also be more likely to drink in excess.”

Milk is a better drink for hydration than water, according to a new study. Researchers at Scotland’s St. Andrews University compared the hydration responses of several different drinks, finding that while water does a pretty good job of quickly hydrating the body, beverages with a little bit of sugar, fat or protein do an even better job of keeping us hydrated for longer.

Sam Asghari slammed TMZ’s “disgusting” TV special about his wife, Britney Spears, ahead of its release. In an Instagram video, he said: “I found it absolutely disgusting for the people who were in her life when she didn’t have a voice, they went and told her story like it was theirs.” Asghari took aim at the outlet for putting his wife “under the microscope” when she is finally free from her family and management’s control and encouraged readers not to fall for “clickbait” stories. The bodybuilder-turned-actor’s post came hours before TMZ published a story claiming his and Britney’s marriage, is already in “deep trouble.” after less than a year. The outlet alleged Spears has gotten physical with her husband during screaming matches and that he no longer spends much time at their house.

Jeremy Strong may have earned accolades for playing a character with some of the worst daddy issues in TV history, but he’s not drawing from personal experience. The “Succession” star recalled how very unlike ‘Logan Roy’ his own father was in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning. When Strong was 8, his father, David, threw himself in front a speeding car, to protect him. Quote: “There was a car coming, like, 40mph that wasn’t slowing down for the traffic light. So, he picked me up and he threw me outta the way.” Strong said his father was hit by the car, breaking “all the bones” in both legs, and saved his life.

Blac Chyna thinks her face was “looking crazy” before she had her fillers removed. The 35-year-old model and reality star – who now wants to revert to her given name of Angela White, made the remark in an Insta video while looking back on old photos of herself. She added about getting the fillers out: “I look so much better,” before saying getting them wasn’t “worth it”. The former OnlyFans star went on: “Ladies, that ain’t the wave… look at (my) lips…Please don’t even do the filler, it is not even worth it. It is not worth it.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

How do you feel about being asked to tip for traditionally non-tipping services, like takeaways meals, online purchases…or even, god forbid…for self checkout purchases? The Wall Street Journal did a report on the rise of digital, self-checkout kiosks and how customers have responded to tip prompts. Many people said they were asked to tip workers with whom they had no interaction, and they said they were frustrated with these prompts. Though some were willing to tack on the extra fees, the majority said tip cues are confusing — and many said they were unsure where the money was going. Examples: A customer who took a beer from a self-service beer fridge at San Diego’s Petco Park (stadium), was asked to include a tip in his payment. And a traveler who said he was prompted to include a 10-20% tip on a $6 bottle of water at an airport gift shop called the ask a “bit of emotional blackmail”. And in another bit of “extreme asking”, some landlords have taken to TikTok to make a case for gratuity to be added onto rent, if you can believe it.

A loving daughter traveled 6,000 miles to surprise her dad for his birthday after he was diagnosed with cancer. Maria Correa, who is 29, made the trip from Dublin, Ireland, to Biguaçu, Brazil to celebrate her dad’s 66th birthday. She moved to Ireland for an exchange program last year, but when her dad Felisbino was diagnosed with prostate cancer, Maria knew she had to be there. To keep the visit a surprise, she told her family she would be visiting in March, but secretly organized to go in February just in time for her dad’s birthday. When she arrived, with the help of her brother, she planned a surprise where she would hide in the trunk of a car under wrapping paper. A video shows the emotional moment Felisbino ‘opens’ the present, only to find Maria hiding. Maria was able to stay with her family for 3 weeks and spend time with her dad, who is going through treatment.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Michigan man claimed a $25,000 a year for life lottery prize — after forgetting about his winning ticket — twice. 70-year-old Floyd Warstler said that he bought his ticket for the Aug. 13 Lucky For Life drawing at a gas station, but he forgot about the ticket for a month. About a month later, he realized he’d never checked it, and when he scanned it at a store, he got a message to make a claim at the lottery office. He figured he might have won about $5,000. Later, his girlfriend spotted the ticket in his car, checked the number online, and told him he’d won $25,000 – a year for life! Unbelievably, he still didn’t claim his prize for a few more months because they “went south for the winter a few days later”. Warstler took his prize as a $290,000 lump sum, which he plans to invest.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


Here are the movies being released to theaters this summer that are vying to be “THE” blockbuster of the year, à la “Jaws” or “E.T.” or “Independence Day”, etc…

✪ “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3” (released May 5): What better way to kick off the season than with the gang of Marvel-ous misfits known as the Guardians of the Galaxy. Millions already agree…

✪ “Fast X” (May 19): This installment will not only welcome back Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Ludacris, it’ll welcome Jason Momoa, Rita Moreno and Brie Larson into the furious fold. Jason Statham, John Cena, Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron are also back from earlier adventures.

✪ “The Little Mermaid” (May 26): There’s quite a buzz for this latest Disney live-action “reimagining”. But one thing’s for sure – people will turn out to see it in droves.

✪ “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” (June 2): This sequel to 2018’s Oscar-winning “Into the Spider-Verse” will expand upon the story of Miles Morales — with Spider-Gwen’s help.

✪ “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” (June 9): We can only hope that the latest in this franchise, featuring animal-like Transformers known as Maximals, doesn’t run too long, and makes at least the tiniest bit of sense.

✪ “The Flash” (June 16): This one just might be the one to beat this summer, with DC bringing its universe of superheroes to an emotional and action-packed crescendo, led by embattled star Ezra Miller’s Flash.

✪ “Asteroid City” (June 16): Wes Anderson takes on the sci-fi genre. The film follows stargazers who are visited by aliens in a place in the desert called, you guessed it, Asteroid City. Incredible cast, too.

✪ “The Blackening” (June 16): This slasher comedy-horror hybrid looks like it will be a crowd-pleaser and then some, featuring an all-Black cast and hinging on the premise that, as the tag line says, “We can’t all die first.”

✪ “Elemental” (June 16): An original story from Pixar, featuring a world in which the elements must learn to live together in the same crowded urban environment.

✪ “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” (June 30): This 5th adventure from Indy (Harrison Ford) brings back John Rhys-Davies of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” fame, and also welcomes “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and “Legion’s” Dan Stevens.
