SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

According to the old saying, a fool and his money are soon parted, but according to a new study, you’re less likely to part with that cash if you had to work hard for it. University of Notre Dame researchers found that, generally, the harder a person works for an amount of money, the less willing they are to risk those earnings on investments or other purchases. They say that while there’s a sizable amount of research suggesting that those who are careful with their money are more likely to prosper, a different relationship appears to be at play on the individual level. They say that when we assess an individual, that singular person will be less tolerant of risk when they work hard and more tolerant of risk when they don’t work hard. Why? As you can imagine, we tend to feel greater psychological ownership over our earnings when we had to work hard for them, as opposed to if we happened across a windfall, such as a lottery win, or an inheritance. So, naturally, if you toiled and sweated for your savings, you tend to choose less risky investments.

Staying up late may lead to habits which result in an early death. After a number of studies over the years showing those who stay up late into the night are more likely to suffer from health problems and die younger than “early birds”, experts now believe they’ve found the cause: Night owls tend to smoke more and drink more alcohol than those who rise and shine earlier. Swedish researchers looked at data from almost 23,000 twins who participated in a study between 1981-2018, and analyzed the death records of 8,728 people. They determined that the chance of dying is 9% higher for night owls than for early birds. The researchers noted that nonsmoking night owls didn’t have any higher risks of death, and alcohol-related deaths were an obvious contributing factor among people who stay up late.


Bryan Cranston took to Instagram to clarify that he’s not entirely fading away from Hollywood, despite his statement that he wants to take time off when he turns 70, in 2 years. In the new post, he said he does plan to hit the “pause” button, in order to spend time with his wife Robin. He also plans to “unplug from social media, step off the hamster wheel of business, and dive into the classic novels that I’ve always promised myself I would read but haven’t”. He also pointed out that he has several projects on the go that fans will get to enjoy before and during his break from showbiz.

The Partridge Family” is coming back! Sony Pictures Television has announced an animated reboot of the classic 1970s show about the musical family. The series will focus on a Black family in Brooklyn. Operating a food truck, the family travels throughout the 5 boroughs of New York to “serve up treats and tunes.” The original series had a similar premise, except it followed the family embarking on a tour across the country, with most episodes after the first season taking place in the family’s hometown.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the co-owners of the XFL, and the league lost a huge amount of money this past season. According to Forbes, the pro football league lost $60 million in the first season since Vince McMahon sold it to a group that includes Johnson and his business partner Dany Garcia. Johnson, however still believes the “league of opportunity” will have financial success, despite the $60 million loss. He told Forbes: “This is not just an endeavor that’s going to fill up a portfolio and one day we flip it and we’re out. This is legacy. This is the long game.” For the 2024 season, the XFL is projected to make $100 million in revenue.

Researchers say they’ve stumbled upon a new cancer treatment. Twice-a-week yoga practice has been shown to be effective at reducing symptoms of fatigue in people with cancer, as well as reducing the likelihood of a beaten cancer from returning. It’s well-known that physical inactivity increases the risk of getting cancer – and that most forms of exercise help prevent it. Three studies presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the world’s largest cancer conference, suggest that prescribing rest for a patient suffering from low energy levels is not the best idea. In one of the studies, yoga was found to significantly reduces inflammation among cancer survivors. In another, cancer patients showed lower levels of fatigue and reported higher levels of life satisfaction after doing yoga. And the third study found that cancer patients who are classified as “active” have a reduced risk of death by almost one-fifth.

It’s a job that can’t be topped – or maybe it can, and it’s open now at the Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Some lucky weird-dough is going to be hired to fill the official job title of “descriptive sensory panelist.” And what does a descriptive sensory panelist do? The selected candidate will be required to sample 24 cheese chunks and 12 pizzas per week. The pay? $15 an hour. Brandon Prochaska, sensory coordinator at the Center for Dairy Research, points out that the position is “crucial” to “ensure the cheese produced in Wisconsin and across the country is as fresh, delicious, and consistent as it can possibly be.” According to the official job posting, “Once hired, we will train you to become part of a group of expert tasters capable of verbally describing their sensory experience on the basis of appearance, texture, taste and aroma attributes for research and product development purposes.” The winning candidate only has to be available for up to 3 sessions per week, totaling about 9 hours. Prochaska said the response to the job ad has been “very exciting as well as humbling.”

A Reddit user recently asked, “What’s the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?” — and the responses are priceless. Here are some of them…

☞ “I would watch the TV in horror if a character was smoking while drinking alcohol. I had a vague notion that alcohol was flammable, and I was afraid they would explode.”

☞ “That songs played on the radio were being played live each time they came on. Smashing Pumpkins song at 2am? I assumed they got out of bed to play it.

☞ “I thought Jennifer Lopez was named Jenny Ferlopez.”

☞ “I thought ‘shoplifting’ was like weightlifting, only instead of weights, people were lifting the entire store building…I pictured big, burly, bald men that liked to go around heaving store buildings overhead, grunting and red-faced, like the weightlifters.

☞ “Cats are girls, and dogs are boys.”
