The researchers said: “Reading isn’t just a pleasurable experience — it’s widely accepted that it inspires thinking and creativity, increases empathy and reduces stress.”

Choose wisely. That hot dog you’re looking forward to grilling up this weekend could shorten your “healthy life” by up to 36 minutes. On the other hand, eating a serving of cashews instead may extend it by 26 minutes! In a study, University of Michigan researchers found that substituting just 10% of your usual daily caloric intake from beef and processed meats with a mixture of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and some seafoods may extend your “healthy life” significantly…and help preserve the environment.

Johnny Depp was THIS close to losing 2 of his homes in West Hollywood — but was able to take out a $10 million loan to save them. Records show that his smaller house, Which faced foreclosure in 2016 in the amount of $4.28 million, was in full reconveyance after the actor paid what he owed. Depp took out a massive loan in March on the other home — known for its resemblance to a gothic replica of a Bavarian castle. That home went into a $5 million default in 2018. The Daily Mail reports that Depp was forced to take out the 8-figure home loan after blowing his $650 million fortune on litigation with Amber Heard and other reckless spending.
Angelina Jolie’s former investment company is accusing Brad Pitt and “co-conspirators” of “stripping” and “looting” their formerly owned Château Miraval, in a bid at gaining control. Nouvel claims Pitt “wasted” the company’s assets by “spending millions on vanity projects…rebuilding a staircase 4 times and spending millions to restore a recording studio,” documents say. Attorneys claim that Pitt’s “misconduct” escalated after Jolie sold Nouvel in 2021 to a company controlled by a Russian oligarch. The filing states that Pitt was incensed that Jolie didn’t sell it to him, and acted like a petulant child, refusing to treat Nouvel as an equal partner in the business.”

At Washington DC’s fabled National Museum of Natural History, which houses some of the world’s oldest artifacts, the latest “relic” on display is: the cellphone. The first-of-its-kind exhibit, called “Cellphone: Unseen Connections,” offers visitors a chance to explore the way cellular phones have brought people closer together. It features dazzling displays, including supersized emoji screens and a comic mural spawning multiple walls. One eye-catching piece is a 10-foot-tall cellphone-shaped case containing a multitude of minerals from around the world. Inside are precious staples like gold and platinum, plus lesser-known varieties. Why? Collectively, the mineral specimens display contains the 65 different elements that power the average cellphone. One of the show-stoppers of the exhibit is the “Tower of Technology”, where cell phones of all types and sizes are mounted inside a glass case, so visitors can hopefully spot the devices they used to own.
