SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Forget about trying to reach that magical number of 10,000 steps per day. It turns out that after all this time, we might have been overestimating the number of steps needed to stay healthy. A new study by Johns Hopkins University and researchers in Poland found the bare minimum number of steps you should be doing to reduce the risk of premature death — is around 4,000 per day. And they also found that just over 2,300 daily steps is enough to benefit the heart and blood vessels. But on the other hand, they determined that each additional 1,000 daily steps decreases a person’s death risk by 15%, right up to 20,000 steps.

New pro sports teams bring more than fandemonium to a city — they also spark a spike in flu deaths, according to a new study. Flu mortality jumped as much as nearly 25% in cities that picked up new sports franchises in baseball, basketball, football or hockey, researchers at West Virginia University found. WVU economics professor (and co-author of the study) said: “It’s important for sports fans to realize that there is some additional risk that they’re taking, now that we’re all acutely aware of airborne virus transmission or respiratory virus transmission.”


Sean Tuohy has spoken out about former NFLer Michael Oher’s legal petition, which alleges the Tuohy family did not legally adopt him, but tricked him into making them his conservators — before making millions from his falsified life story, as depicted in “The Blind Side”. Tuohy told a reporter: “It’s upsetting to think we would make money off any of our children. But we’re going to love Michael at 37 just like we loved him at 16.” Oher, whose story was depicted in the 2009 Academy Award-winning movie, filed a petition Monday seeking to dissolve the conservatorship, alleging Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy did not legally adopt him.

Fox has moved up the Season 10 premiere date for “The Masked Singer” by 2 weeks to Sunday, September 10, immediately following the NFL Double Header. The competition series will then take 2 weeks off, and return Sept. 27 for its official slot from 8-9 PM ET/PT for the remainder of the season. Last season, The Masked Singer was Fox’s most-popular unscripted cross-platform program, and it has ranked as Fall’s #1 unscripted series for 4 consecutive years.

Todd and Julie Chrisley are less than a year into their prison sentence for tax evasion and bank fraud, but that won’t stop their family from mounting a comeback. The Chrisley family will return to reality TV in an upcoming series, which will chronicle the family’s adjustment to Todd and Julie’s imprisonment. The family was last seen in “Chrisley Knows Best’s” 10th season, which concluded in March. Chase, Savannah, Grayson, Chloe, and “Nanny” Faye Chrisley are all set to return. Absent is Todd’s son Kyle, who was recently arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

Scientists say they are on the cusp of turning flies into biodegradable goods, such as bioplastics, offering an alternative to conventional plastics derived from fossil fuels. Texas A&M University researchers say that while flies are being increasingly cultivated, for use in waste management, once their short lifespan concludes, they are typically discarded. The team utilized these discarded flies as a foundation for their research, finding that dead flies are full of chitin, a non-biodegradable sugar-based polymer. They envision it being used as raw material for crafting bioplastics, “taking something that’s quite literally garbage and making something useful out of it”, according to one researcher.

Want to sound more intelligent? Less annoying? According to a survey of managers, recruiters and employees, these buzzwords and clich├ęs should be retired . . .

➢ “Bandwidth”: Many use this word to refer to human capacities to take on a task.

➢ “End-user”: Another computer word that spread to more general use, especially in marketing and advertising. It’s dehumanizing and impersonal. How about customer, or client?

➢ “Hack”: Now, millions of enthusiastic people are “hacking” all sorts of things — from cookie recipes to clogged toilets.

➢ “I did a thing”: This is a petty one, but it turns a lot of people off. How about “I made this”?

➢ “It is what it is: In the past few years, this phrase is everywhere.

➢ “Influencer”: These days, anyone with a small social media following can be called one. So what?

➢ “Pivot”: It has lost its meaning, since everyone is now “pivoting” all the time.

➢ “Take it offline”: Maybe we should think of taking ‘Take it offline’ offline.

➢ “Thought leader”: Sounds contrived. “Leader” should be sufficient.

➢ “We remain cautious”: It’s excess verbiage. You’d better be being cautious, or you’re not doing your job!
