SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Scientists in the UK are developing peas that don’t taste like peas. And no, it’s not part of a crafty plan to get children to eat their veggies. As more and more of us turn to plant-based food, they are hoping to produce a more planet-friendly, home-grown alternative to importing soya beans. Peas are high in protein, but it’s hard to mask their taste when they’re used as a meat substitute in vegan dishes. Scientists discovered a gene for pea flavor 30 years ago. At the time, research was stopped, as there was no use for it. Now it could be the basis of a new industry, as Belfast-based plant breeding company, Germinal works to make flavourless peas as a soya alternative.

It takes less than 20 minutes for the average person to know if they want a second date, according to new research. A survey of 2,000 single Americans (who are dating and/or looking for a partner) revealed the average respondent knows whether or not they’d like to see someone again at the 19-minute mark of their first date. When it comes to a potential mate, physical appearance is important to 44% of respondents, but a greater value is placed on manners (51%), personality (48%) and conversational skills (47%). And older respondents were found to have higher standards for a potential partner — 67% of Gen Zers said they have high standards, while 77% of Gen X said the same.


Jeff Garlin’s character in “The Goldbergs” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” may have elicited laughter, but his alleged troublesome behavior behind the scenes made working on the set challenging for crew members. According to Maureen Ryan’s new book “Burn It Down: Power, Complicity, and a Call for Change in Hollywood” Garlin’s , the actor’s “disrespectful” and “disparaging” behavior was allowed to run unchecked, with one insider saying he wielded his “power and status to intimidate and demean everyone on this crew.” The actor’s behavior — described as “harassing, disparaging or physically problematic” – eventually led to his dismissal from the show in 2022.

Pete Davidson has admitted that he and Colin Jost were “very stoned” when they paid $280,000 for a decommissioned Staten Island ferry, and he regrets buying it. While attending the red-carpet premiere of “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” in New York City, he told “Entertainment Tonight”: “Me and Colin were very stoned a year ago and bought a ferry. And we’re figuring it out.” In January, 2022, Davidson and his former “SNL” co-star Jost won the John F. Kennedy, a decommissioned Staten Island ferry “in poor condition”, at an auction. When asked if he planned to use the boat for the movie premiere’s after-party, he said: “Hopefully it turns into a Transformer and gets the (heck) out of there so I can stop paying for it!”

Chris Hemsworth isn’t digging the negativity for the franchise that made him famous: the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He spoke with GQ in a new interview about backlash from Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino over the beloved series of superhero films. Tarantino had blamed Hollywood’s lack of movie stars on the MCU, and Scorsese went so far as to claim that Marvel flicks should not be considered cinema. Hemsworth, who has played ‘Thor’ in several Marvel movies, said: “That’s super depressing when I hear that. There goes two of my heroes I won’t work with. I guess they’re not a fan of me.” But despite the comments, Hemsworth said: “In a heartbeat I would leap to work with any of them.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Scientists say they’ve developed a type of cannabis that doesn’t get you high.

Coca-Cola is launching a new limited-edition flavor – aimed at gamers. For the new flavor, called “Coca-Cola Ultimate”, the soda maker partnered with Riot Games, which publishes the multi-player online game “League of Legends”. The line of abstract flavors, each paired with a digital experience, is designed to drum up excitement for Coke among younger consumers by focusing on music and online games. It rolled out globally this week, and hits stores in North America on Monday. What’s it taste like? No official comment, but Coke does say it offers drinkers the taste of “experience points”, which are earned by League of Legends players.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A US driver was arrested after making a wrong turn and ending up in a line to cross the Canada border while in possession of more than $815,000 in cash and a large amount of cannabis. Last Friday, the 60-year-old male was following GPS coordinates that he’d entered improperly, according to the RCMP, and “took a wrong turn and ended up in the border line up” at Niagara Falls ON. Because he had no passport, he was referred for a secondary examination, where officers discovered 181kg (399lbs) of cannabis and over $600,000 US dollars (worth $816,167CAD). Coincidentally, 3 days later, a wrong turn landed a female US driver in jail after she accidentally ended up on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls — and officers discovered she was in a stolen car.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


1. Aloe Vera: It works best when sourced straight from the plant (which has amazing healing properties). But if you’re in a pinch, a gel or moisturizer containing aloe will provide many of the same benefits. Cut the leaves of an aloe plant, and apply it as topical ointment to soothe the sting and reduce the redness. (Cool. Literally!)

2. A Cool Bath/Shower: Just as you’d blast the AC for a shot of relief, a bath or shower can help cool your burnt skin. Then, as soon as you get out, gently pat yourself dry, but leave a little water on your skin, and apply a moisturizer to help trap the water. This can help ease the dryness. (Then – scream!)

3. Drink Water: It may seem obvious, but hydration is important to healing from a burn, to replenish moisture that’s lost during your time in the sun. Hydrating fruits and veggies like watermelon, cucumber, strawberries, tomatoes, grapefruit, and cantaloupe can also help. (Especially if they’re part of a very strong cocktail!)

4. Pain Relievers: While it may not be a permanent solution, it’s a great way to catch a break from the pain and get some much-needed rest. Consider taking aspirin or ibuprofen to help reduce any swelling, redness and discomfort.

5. Cold Compress: When you still want an extra dose of cooling relief, a cold compress is a great way to quickly bring down the temperature of the skin, and help with pain and swelling. Wrap an ice pack or a bag of frozen veggies in a soft towel and apply to the burn. Use it as often as you like for 10–15-minute intervals.
