According to a survey, 57% of dads call Father’s Day their favorite day of the year. And you’ve still got time to make sure your dad feels the same. According to a survey (conducted in the US), the average person plans to spend a record $196.23 on dear old dad for Father’s Day this year, up from $171.79 last year. 40% will be getting their dad something practical, like socks or a tool kit. Other top gift ideas for dad this Sunday include (in order) a meal outing (such as dinner or brunch), clothing, gift cards, electronics, and personal care items. And nearly one-third (29%) of those celebrating Father’s Day are planning to give a gift of experience, such as tickets to a sporting event or concert.

by the way, in a survey, the top 5 gifts that dads said they DON’T want are, in order, clothing, books and CDs, greeting cards, personal care items…and gift cards(!!)

and interestingly, 64% of dads specifically said they don’t want anything that says “World’s Best Dad “on it!

Some people in Japan who have become accustomed to wearing a face mask have turned to the help of a professional — to learn to smile again. After the country lifted its recommendation to wear masks for COVID prevention in March, many people seemingly realized they had actually forgotten how to smile. Lessons to perfect a perfect grin cost about US$55 for a one-on-one session.


Amazon Prime Video is reportedly about to jump on the commercial bandwagon. Following the recent introduction of Netflix with ads and Disney+ with ads, the Amazon-backed streamer is reportedly in the “early stages” of introducing a Prime Video ad-supported subscription tier. The company is reportedly looking at several ways it could implement ads, such as showing more ads to existing Prime subscribers and giving them an option to pay more for an ad-free alternative. It is also said to be in talks with both Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global about adding the ad-based tiers of their streaming services through Prime Video Channels.

Tom Holland is out of office. The 27-year-old “Spider-Man: No Way Home” star has decided to take a hiatus from acting after producing and starring in the Apple TV+ limited series “The Crowded Room.” In an interview, he called making the show “a tough time, for sure”. He said as it was put together, “We were exploring certain emotions that I have definitely never experienced before. And then on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set, just added that extra level of pressure.” Despite enjoying his role, the actor admitted the show “did break him” in the process, and his newly announced one-year break “is a result of how difficult this show was.”

Expendables 4” is coming soon to theatres, and we now have the movie’s explosive first trailer. The teaser for the new film reveals the return of some franchise favorite stars — like Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham — as well as a handful of newcomers, like Megan Fox and 50 Cent. This time around, the crew “are drawn into a conspiracy that will ignite a nuclear conflict between Russia and the United States.” The movie hits theaters Sept. 22. LINK:

According to a report, 1 in 4 adults have the math skills of a 9-year-old.

Some schools in Canada are experimenting with cellphone bans. And as you can imagine, some students, and their parents, have a problem with it. While Ontario is the only province with an active ban on cellphones in the classroom, some schools across the country are implementing rules that require students to lock up their phones at the beginning of the day or keep them turned off during lessons. Educators who are against a ban say phones can be included in teaching, and others say phones are an important link between school and home — especially for those at risk of violence. Chatelech Secondary School in BC banned mobile phones 6 months ago, and according to counsellor Tulani Pierce, the outcome was remarkable. Quote: “We are seeing improved mental health, we’re seeing decreased bullying, we’re seeing more engagement in class, we’re seeing more social interaction.” Pierce also noticed: “Kids are playing again…and we’re seeing increased academic success.”

MMA fighter Conor McGregor sent the Miami Heat’s beloved mascot, Burnie, to the emergency room in a promotional stunt gone wrong. Friday night, during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the visiting Denver Nuggets and Miami, Burnie, a 7-foot-6 depiction of the team’s fireball logo, came out wearing a robe and gold boxing gloves in what was supposed to be a skit. McGregor’s playfully doused his pain relief spray on Burnie and then, out of nowhere, he clocked the mascot square in the head, sending Burnie flat to the ground. Making matters worse, McGregor landed another punch, before a staffer pulled McGregor away from the mascot. LINK:

You can give your dad credit…or blame…for these:

Your gender: If you paid attention during biology class, this won’t be news to you. But, yes – it is men who are 100% responsible for the gender of a baby.

Crooked teeth: Studies show that if a child is prone to crooked teeth, gum problems, cavities, or even tooth decay at an early age, this can all be traced back to the father.

Height: Your height is determined by about 700 genetic variations inherited from both parents. But the father’s height genes are the ones charged with stimulating the growth of the baby, which is why they determine our height.

Dimples: As adorable as they are (especially on babies), scientists describe dimples as a defect caused mainly due to shortened facial muscles. And you guessed it: that’s a genetic trait inherited from the father of the child.

Sneezing (!!): If you’re the type of person who sneezes first thing in the morning or when you look at the sun, or the second you step outside, guess what? It’s something you got from your dad! Sneezing is a genetic trait that the father is responsible for.
