How much money do you spend on food that ends up going to waste? If you’re average, it’s nearly $3,000 a year, according to new research. A survey of 2,000 US adults found that on average, each household spends $248 per week at the grocery store…and $63 worth goes to waste. Respondents said that when they cook, a quarter of them “always” or “often” make more food than they’re able to finish, usually with the intention of having leftovers. The problem (and this may sound familiar…): they don’t always get around to using them up. Nearly a third admitted they’re likely to forget about leftovers once they’re out of sight (32%). And that’s one of the top reasons people end up having food waste. Another reason is other household members not wanting to eat leftovers. While 43% said they prefer to eat their leftovers until they’re finished, a quarter of respondents say they get tired of eating the same thing over and over before they’re able to finish it.

at the University of Texas Austin have successfully created an
artificial intelligence system that “can translate a person’s
brain activity” into plain, readable language. Yup. It can read
your mind. The device, known as a semantic decoder, can do so by
utilizing similar technology implemented by ChatGPT – and no
surgery or special implant is required. A test subject is instructed
to listen to podcasts while inside a scanner, before having their
“thoughts decoded” by either telling a story in their heads or
imagining it. This “allows the machine to generate corresponding
text from brain activity alone”, the researchers said.

Steven Spielberg regrets that he re-edited his 1982 classic “E.T.” to appeal to modern audiences. The legendary director specifically wishes he never changed one scene that showed government agents armed with guns. The scene ultimately didn’t make it into the 2002 re-release of the film and instead had the guns replaced with walkie talkies. Tuesday at the Time 100 Summit, he said: “That was a mistake….I never should have done that because ‘E.T.’ was a product of its era.” Spielberg went on to say: “No film should be revised based on the lenses we now are, either voluntarily or being forced to peer through.”
Another classic “Frasier” character will return for the upcoming Paramount+ revival. Peri Gilpin will reprise her role as radio show producer ‘Roz Doyle’. It’s unclear how Roz will fit into the story, since the revival sees Kelsey Grammer’s ‘Frasier Crane’ back in Boston, far from the Seattle setting of the original series. It is reported that Gilpin will return in a guest-starring role. Bebe Neuwirth is also slated to return as Frasier’s ex-wife, ‘Lilith Sternin’.
Robert Pattinson will star in a new serial killer movie coming to Netflix. The “Batman” actor will play the lead character in the “black comedy taking on serious issues” from “Don’t Look Up” filmmaker Adam McKay. Robert Downey Jr., Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker and Danielle Deadwyler will also have prominent roles. The film, titled “Average Height, Average Build” will see Pattinson as a serial killer who hires a lobbyist to change laws so he can easily get away with his murders. He winds up becoming a hero in Washington while hiding his true motives. Filming starts this summer.

Apparently, when it comes to new music, singers are getting quieter. A new study found that the volume of lead singers in chart-topping songs has gradually decreased over the past 75 years. Now, whether that’s a good thing, I’ll leave up to you. Traditionally, music has focused on emphasizing the lead singer’s voice, but researchers at the University of Oldenburg in Germany have discovered that lead vocals are becoming increasingly quieter compared to the rest of the band (or music). The researchers feel this trend is due to changes in music technology, but say it could also be related to the “stylistic evolution” of pop songs. Study authors found country music has the highest lead vocal-to-accompaniment ratio (LAR), followed by rap and pop. Rock music had an almost zero LAR, while metal had a negative LAR, and solo singers had a much higher LAR than bands.
