THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!

Dear John,

Last Christmas, my boyfriend and I broke up. We had been together for quite a while and we work together. He bought me a ring and everything, but it wasn't working out so I ended the relationship. It was awkward to break up, but it was the right thing to do. I've kind of moved on, but now I just found out from a friend that works in his department that he's dating a younger girl... a much younger girl. He's 31... his new girlfriend is 19. She also works in the same department where he works. I don't know what to do with this information. I don't think it's right that he's literally dating a teenager. When we dated, it was OK because we were at the same company, but not even in the same department. Now he's dating someone who actually works for him. I'm not sure that the company would be OK with this. Do I just stay out of this? I'm afraid he might lose his job!

New research shows a connection between consumption of highly processed food, and “elevated” mental duress later in life, says the Melbourne Collaborative Cohort Study. Researchers looked at how the fatty foods later impacted adolescents aged 13-17 as a baseline, and then checked in with the subjects years later. They found that “Participants with the highest intake of ultra-processed food had increased odds of elevated psychological distress”. Those who ate the most ultra-processed food were fund to be most-likely to experience distress at the 15-year follow-up. This distress was described by the study as “a marker for depression.”

Paper straws might not be the “eco-friendly” revolution they’ve been promoted to be: Belgian researchers found that these so-called “green” utensils are toxic, and therefore potentially worse for the environment than their now-hated plastic counterparts, according to a new study published in the journal Food Additives & Contaminants. Researchers analyzed the concentrations of PFAs, or “forever chemicals” of 39 brands of drinking straws, comprised of 5 materials: paper, bamboo, glass, stainless steel, and plastic. They found that paper straws were the most PFA-filled, with a 90% of paper straws containing the chemicals. Bamboo straws — another highly-touted green alternative — came in second with 80%, followed by 75% of plastic straws, 40% of glass straws, and none in steel straws.

I never thought I’d see the day, but Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah”, has debuted with a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Part of the actor/producer’s deal with the streaming giant, the coming-of-age comedy stars Sandler’s real-life daughter Sunny as ‘Stacy Friedman’, who dreams of having an epic bat mitzvah with her best friend Lydia. Things get sour when Stacy sees Lydia kissing her school crush, with middle-school drama ensuing. Critics are hailing the film as a fresh tale of friendship that has the potential to become iconic for younger audiences. Though the Rotten Tomatoes score may change as more reviews come in, at last check, it was at 100%.

It’s full sail ahead for the cargo ship Pyxis Ocean. The vessel, now on its maiden voyage from China to Brazil, is outfitted with WindWings sails, which are 123-feet tall and made of the same material as wind turbines. It is the first real-world test of the sails, which are designed to cut fuel consumption. Because the ship does not rely solely on an engine, the sails could reduce save 3.3 tons of fuel per day, and reduce its lifetime emissions by 30%. The shipping industry generates about 837 million ton of carbon dioxide per year, and wind power “can make a difference” as the world awaits new clean energy sources, says Dr. Simon Bullock, shipping researcher at the University of Manchester’s Tyndall Center.

A new study has found that playing a musical instrument as a child could have mental benefits later in life. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh determined that musicians do better on cognitive ability tests as adults aged 70-82 than those who never played an instrument. Why? The scientists aren’t sure, but it’s believed that the abilities it takes to play an instrument, such as reading sheet music and coordinating hand movements, can strengthen neural connections in the brain and overall brain function.

Angelina Jolie is flipping the bird to someone. Her tattoo artist revealed the actress got a mystery tattoo on both of her middle fingers — and fans are having a field day guessing at what it could say. Mr. K, who works at the celebrity-loved Bang Bang shop in New York, shared a snap on Instagram of Jolie’s fingers with the fresh ink blurred out, to keep her new design hidden. He tagged Jolie, writing: “Still can’t believe that I actually grabbed her hand and tattooed her,” and asking followers to “Guess what she got on her palm?” The guesses started coming in hot, with references to her ex-Brad Pitt the most popular option.
UPDATE
Angelina Jolie’s highly-speculated-about mystery tattoo design has been revealed, after tattoo artist Mr. K teased her mysterious middle finger art on Instagram. Mr. K left fans wondering if it was a reference to her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. But paparazzi pics taken earlier this week show that the tat isn’t a direct message to her ex-husband at all, but rather a small dagger designed to look like it’s piercing her skin. And now, Mr. K has clarified that her ink was “NOTHING” related to Pitt. The “Hackers” star has been a longtime lover of sharp symbols and has her own an extensive knife collection.

You’ve seen it play out a million times: You and your significant other spend the evening together – but apart. One is on the phone or tablet. The other is watching TV or playing video games. Or maybe one is reading, while the other finishes up some work on the laptop. Is there wedge in your relationship? Quite the opposite. According to psychologists, enjoying separate things, while physically together – known as “parallel play” – can actually strengthen your relationship with your partner. In an article, psychotherapist Sarah Breen told Well + Good that parallel play “can facilitate both increased independence and closeness between partners”. How? Parallel play isn’t about being independent of one another, it’s about getting to be yourself and enjoying what brings you pleasure, while knowing your partner is right there if you happen to need them — or want to talk about what you are doing.

A small town in France has gone viral for marking a busy intersection with overlapping white lines in order to confuse motorists Рand force them to slow down. The town of Bauné is home to about 1,700 people, but it deals with heavy traffic on a daily basis, because of its location near 2 major roads. Some of the roughly 2,300 vehicles that pass through every day reach speeds of over 100 km/h (60mph), even though the town has clearly marked speed limit signs of 30 km/h (18mph). So, local authorities came up with the idea of using confusing road markings in the form of overlapping continuous lines. And it worked!

Handing your baby a phone or tablet to occupy them might seem like a harmless solution when you’re busy, but it could affect their development, says a new study. Having 1-4 hours of screen time per day at age 1 is linked with higher risks of delays in communication, fine motor, problem-solving and personal and social skills by age 2, according to a study of 7,100 children published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. The researchers say the potential harms of screen time on communication skills may come from the fact that while they may hear a lot of words while viewing a screen, “they’re not practicing saying a lot of words or having a lot of that back-and-forth interaction.”

TikTok’s official catapult into e-commerce, the TikTok Shop, fully rolled out in the US this month. It lets TikTok users purchase anything under the ‘fashion’ or ‘life-hack’ sun, from the comfort of their “For You” Pages. The social media app is aiming to sell more than $20 billion in products through TikTok Shop by the end of the year. But here’s the thing: TikTok has been accused of boosting videos that sell products through the new feature, which are marked with an orange shopping cart icon. The pickle sweatshirt, for example, is suddenly all over people’s screens, despite having been around since January. Now it’s easier than ever to fall into the #tiktokmademebuyit trap.

You might feel like you’re all “on fleek” (or whatever term the kids are using these days) when you’re wearing your stylish Apple Watch or Fitbit, but scientists say there is a good chance it is covered in harmful bacteria. Researchers from Florida Atlantic University tested plastic, rubber, cloth, leather, and metal (gold and silver) wristbands, and found that 95% of them were contaminated with some kind of dangerous bacteria. Want more details? 85% were found with Staphylococcus spp — which causes staph infections, 60% had E. coli bacteria — and 30% carried potentially deadly Pseudomonas spp. These bacteria can lead to things like pneumonia and blood infections.

I love this! Research shows that petting other people’s dogs can improve your well-being. According to accumulating findings, human-dog contact increases the production of oxytocin (the “love hormone”) while reducing the production of cortisol (the primary stress hormone). And you only need 5-20 minutes of interaction with other people’s (friendly) dogs to reduce stress and boost your health. And it’s not just us. Scientists report they observe the same response in dogs, when we shower them with affection.

Remember when if you saw someone watching TV with the subtitles turned on, you immediately assumed they were hard of hearing? Well, that’s not the case any longer.

And a poll of TV viewers in the US found that 70% of Gen Z respondents rely on captions “most of the time” compared to only 35% of Baby Boomers [those 59-77].

It means “I just burst out laughing.” Admittedly, IJBOL isn’t quite as catchy as millennial terms like “LMAO” “ROFL” or “LOL”, but “IJBOL” — pronounced “eej-bowl” is more closely associated with “Gen Z humor”, which , if you ask any Gen Zer, is funnier.
