SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Have you had some “really weird” dreams lately? There’s a good reason for it – and you’re not alone. According to Healthline, you can blame the weather. When you’re overheated – even for as little as half an hour – your body can go into “panic mode”, says the website. Your body can react to extreme heat by raising your heart rate, and activating your “stress control centre”. That means that by the time you go to drop off, your body’s already primed for a tussle with something – and once you’re asleep, that “something” can quickly become your own dreams. Healthline says: “Quality of sleep is affected…because heat puts the body in a naturally anxious state. You may find that your dreams become more vivid and more uneasy simply because your body is overheated.” And also, because you wake up more often, you’re more likely to remember those weird dreams for a longer period of time.

Carl Fredricksen’ from Pixar’s “Up” movie is floating back to the big screen in a new theatrical short called “Carl’s Date.” The trailer for the Disney/Pixar short was released on Monday — and catches up with widower Carl – who reflected on his life with his dearly departed love Ellie in a sob-worthy montage in “Up”. The new adventure also features his lovable dog ‘Dug’ as they embark on a new adventure in the name of love — but Carl admittedly has no idea how dating works these days.” “Carl’s Date,” featuring the voice of the late Ed Asner, will debut in theaters tomorrow, showing prior to the animated Disney Pixar feature “Elemental.” LINK:

Jennifer Lawrence says she’s “totally” open to return to “The Hunger Games”.

During an interview, she said: “Oh, my God – totally! If Katniss ever could ever come back into my life, 100%!” In November, the prequel “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes”, will be released, but Lawrence is not part of the cast.

A support group in England is using sheep to help people improve their mental health. “EWE Talk” was launched last year with just one sheep – but now has a flock of 7 sheep and 2 goats to help children and adults who are struggling. ‘Valais Blacknose’ sheep are known for their dog-like temperament – making them the perfect animal to provide emotional support. The goal of the founders of EWE Talk is to visit schools and educational settings with fluffy friends, but they also welcome children struggling with mental health onto the farm. And on some occasions, they’ve even transported the flock to locals in need of emotional support. LINK:

Teachers in Switzerland are complaining that too many students are wearing diapers in class these days — because they don’t know how to use the toilet. And it’s not the 4-and 5-year-olds they’re talking about. Dagmar Rösler, head of the Swiss Federation of Teachers, told a newspaper: “When 11-year-olds come to school in diapers, that’s a worrying trend.” The children’s lack of knowledge becomes a burden for many teachers, who have to assist students with soaked diapers. The average age to potty train children is between 18-24 months, according to Mayo Clinic, but an educational scientist said: “Some parents let it slide because diapers are a convenient relief.”
