Be honest: Do you spend too much time on your phone – sometimes at the expense of paying attention to the people around you? Well, there’s a new term for that – “phubbing”. Research shows that the average person spends 3 hours 23 minutes every day on their phone, equivalent to around 50 days a year. But all this screen time is not just bad for the eyes, it can harm relationships. And admit it, at some point we’ve all been guilty of ‘phubbing’. Also known as ‘phone snubbing’, research shows that we’re most likely to phub the people closest to us. Partners are phubbed the most, followed close friends, siblings, children and parents. Younger people phub more than older people, but there was no noticeable difference between how often males and females phubbed.

The world is having more good times, according to a new report. The Gallup Global Emotions 2023 Report is a collection of data from more than 100 countries that asks how people are feeling. The number of positive experiences recovered somewhat in 2022. Positive experiences had remained relatively stable in previous years, but dropped in 2021. In that year, negative experiences also skyrocketed to the highest rate researchers had measured in the 17 years they had been conducting the research. A little more good news: The rate of negative experiences didn’t go up in 2022 — although it is still at a historically high level. The researchers speculate that the rate of positive experiences was high last year because people began to “emerge from the grips of pandemic”, to participate in more social activities and plan travel.

Daniel Radcliffe has responded to inquiries about whether he would reprise as ‘Harry Potter’ for Max’s in-development episodic adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novels. He shot down the notion, while wishing good luck to whomever takes his place. Radcliffe said he understands that “they’re trying to very much start fresh and I’m sure whoever is making them will want to make their own mark on it”, which would be best done by getting “old Harry to cameo”. He said he’s not “seeking it out in any way”, but indicated while he’s “very excited to have that torch passed”, he doesn’t “think it needs me to physically pass it.”
Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson are doing just fine. After an online rumor that the 2 “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” stars were going their separate ways, Olson debunked the claim that she and husband McElhenney had separated — and that he had had an affair. In a tweet, she shared the Perez Hilton article, and wrote: “It was me who had the affair. But it was not with someone from Wales. It was with a whale.” She didn’t stop there, writing: “I’ve always loved whales. They’re the bosses of the ocean and I’m attracted to power.” She ended the tweet with the typical celeb breakup line: “We ask for privacy as we navigate this difficult time.”

The diabetes drug turned weight-loss drug Ozempic has become the hottest prescription on the market, loved first by Hollywood stars, and now being used, probably, by someone in your circle of friends and family as a quick fix for shedding unwanted pounds.
