SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

If you’re a remote worker, you’d probably like to continue working from home – but would you take a pay cut to do it? Most would, according to a new survey. In a survey conducted in the US, 55% of remote workers said they’d take a lower-paying job in order to keep working from home. On the other hand, 45% of fully remote workers said they’re open to commuting some days if they’re offered a higher-paying job. And as is so often the case, the bottom line is money. 80% of all those polled, including remote-capable workers — say they would go into the office a couple days a week in exchange for more money. The findings, from Ipsos, come as some companies have issued mandates for workers to return to the office, in the belief that in-person work will increase productivity, enhance creativity, and improve collaboration across teams.

According to a new study, the secret to a longer, happier marriage may lie in – opening a joint bank account. Study authors at Indiana University found that married couples with consolidated finances argued less about money, felt more confident about household money management, and reported better overall relationship satisfaction. Couples sharing resources also felt more unified and committed to shared goals.


It’s not quite showtime yet, but “Beetlejuice 2” is coming, and star Michael Keaton has given some insight on how Tim Burton and the rest of the film’s creators are making sure it just like the 1988 original. In an interview, Keaton said working on Beetlejuice2 “is the most (freaking) fun you can have working.” Why? Because they’re “doing it exactly like we did the first movie. There’s a woman in the great waiting room for the afterlife literally with a fishing line…tugging on the tail of a cat to make it move.” The sequel is scheduled for release Sept. 6, 2024.

Netflix subscribers may want to cover their eyes, because the “Bird Box” sequel is on its way. The streamer has released the teaser for “Bird Box Barcelona”, the follow-up to the 2018 hit, which starred Sandra Bullock and was one of the most-watched movies in Netflix history. Bullock does not star in the new film, which centers around a blindfolded father, played by Mario Casas, as he navigates “his own survival journey through the desolate streets of Barcelona” after “a mysterious force decimates the world’s population,” while protecting his daughter. According to the trailer, the rules of survival remain the same: “Whatever you do, don’t open your eyes.” The movie debuts on July 14. LINK:

It will “showcase original Canadian stories written and produced by, and starring, Canadians,” according to Citytv.

Video games can help relieve pain, improve your eyesight and even help battle depression, says a report.


Build an air conditioner out of a bucket: Transition a 5-gallon bucket into a makeshift air conditioner by attaching a few PVC sections to its edges, filling it with ice water, and pushing air from tiny fan through the top. And it doesn’t hog up a whole window.

Make aloe ice cubes: Be ready for that inevitable sunburn. Pick up a bottle of aloe vera gel and fill an ice cube tray. Remove them as needed to cool off your beet-red skin.

Freeze a sponge: Soak it, toss it in a Ziplock bag, and leave it in the freezer. When you are melting from the heat, take it out and rest it on your forehead or wrists. You’ll cool down without getting soaked, since the sponge will absorb any residual moisture as it warms.

Wear wet socks to bed: For those unbearably hot nights, place a towel at bottom of your bed and slip on a pair of socks you’ve soaked in cold water. Point a fan at your feet and prepare for a prolonged chill to tingle up your spine.

Freeze your pillowcases and sheets: To better fall asleep on those humid nights, stash a few pillowcases in a sealed bag in the freezer and slip them on before you hit the hay. You’ll be surprised how well it works to cool you down.

Just in case you’re concerned that your kids – or you – aren’t getting enough sugar, you’ll be happy to learn that “Kit Kat Cereal” is now a thing. General Mills is launching the dessert-for breakfast confection In the US this month. Kit Kat Cereal, based on the candy bar of the same name that is advertised as being loaded with “chocolatey crispy deliciousness”, will sell at $5.69 for a standard-size box.
