Are your kids on social media? Chances are, you said “yes”, and chances are also that if you said “no”, you’re just not aware of it yet. That said, it might be better for them if they WEREN’T on Twitter, or TikTok, or Instagram, or whatever else kids are up to these days, according to the US Surgeon General. A new advisory from the government agency says that social media presents a “profound risk of harm” for kids. But on the other hand, no one is completely sure that the usage of social media is harmful at all, due to a lack of research on the matter. The advisory, released this week, notes that although there are some benefits, increased research into social media’s impact on youth mental health, as well as action from policymakers and technology companies, is needed. The report notes that a study of 6,595 adolescents found that those who spent more than 3 hours a day on social media had twice the risk of symptoms of depression and anxiety as non-users. Up to 95% of US teens and 40% of children between 8-12 are on social media.

A new Philadelphia restaurant is serving hamburgers with a $700 price tag. The delicacy — on the menu at the DBG, the Drury Beer Garden, and nicknamed the “Gold Standard” — is made of A5 Wagyu beef, caviar, truffle, lobster flambeed with Louis XIII cognac, gold leaf and Wexford aged Irish cheddar. But don’t forget the accompanying French fries – they’re drizzled with rare and potent 1500+ Manuka Honey, produced from the nectar of the mānuka tree that is native to New Zealand. DBG’s expensive entrée is also served with a 1-ounce side of Louis XIII cognac, which costs about $4,100 per bottle. If a $700 burger sounds like a lot, you can justify it by knowing that the world’s most expensive burger, currently sells for $5,964.

Pedro Pascal has become “the internet’s daddy” — and he doesn’t mind one bit. The star of “The Last of Us”, said he’s “having fun” with the fact that his face has become meme-worthy, and many people on social media look to him as a sort of father-figure. Quote: “[The daddy thing] seems a little role-related. There was a period where the Mandalorian is very daddy to baby Grogu, and Joel is very daddy to Ellie [in ‘The Last of Us’].” But while he has no problem with his moment in the spotlight as “The internet’s daddy”, he has no plans to make it literal. Pascal said: “These are daddy parts….I’m not a daddy and I’m not going to be a daddy.”
