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.

A premiere date for “Dancing with the Stars” is expected to be shared soon.

Amber Heard will not face criminal charges in Australia. Prosecutors have dropped their case against her regarding a 2015 incident when she brought her 2 dogs into the country while visiting Johnny Depp, her husband at the time. She was accused of lying about how her Yorkshire terriers named Pistol and Boo — got into Australia, which has strict biosecurity regulations. Heard had pled guilty to providing false immigration documentation when the dogs were flown in on a private jet. The illegal import of dogs carries a potential 10-year prison sentence.

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.
