You’ve probably seen a man being told by his significant other to “Grow up”. Here’s the thing: Men don’t grow up. Not until they’re 40, anyway. That’s according to a University of Oxford study, which looked into the differences in maturity and development between men and women. The result showed that although the brains of both women and men have the same potential to function in everyday life, men often exhibit some delay in the long-term development of “functional networks” compared to women. That can continue for up to about 40 years. That’s right – The study showed that in many cases, men’s brains don’t fully develop until the age of 40.

say they have been able to re-create what mummies smell like. The
journal Scientific Reports says they managed to identify and
re-create the scent of a tincture used in the mummification of a
noblewoman of ancient Egypt circa 1450 BCE. The not-so-gnarly balm
was made of “beeswax, plant oil, fats, bitumen, Pinaceae resins, a
balsamic substance, and dammar or Pistacia tree resin”. The smell
of the ancient figure is re-engineered and will be on display in the

Nick Cannon’s brother Gabriel admits he’d be hard-pressed to name all 12 of his famous brother’s kids. The “Claim to Fame” Season 2 winner told EW: “I haven’t met them [all yet], but did y’all see what happened with him? (he) messed up [naming] all his kids, so I’m not even gonna attempt.” When asked if he had a note in his phone to remind him of his nieces and nephews’ names, Gabriel jokingly replied, “Google. They’re all on the internet.”

Artificial intelligence (AI) can now be used to predict how healthy you will be later in life — at the press of a button. Researchers from Edith Cowan University in Australia have created AI software that can quickly analyze bone density scans to predict the risk of future health conditions, including cardiovascular diseases and dementia. It does this by detecting a buildup within the abdominal aorta’s walls that can indicate a person’s risk of heart attacks, strokes, falls, fractures, and late-life dementia. The new software can analyze roughly 60,000 images in just a day. Researchers say this development may lead to new approaches for early cardiovascular disease detection and disease monitoring.

There must be a whole bunch of more interesting things to do in New York City than THIS. As the city deals with a major rat problem, the rodent issue is, to some, New York’s latest must-visit attraction, believe it or not. Some tour guides are now selling tours to notoriously rat- infested sites. That’s right – this means that rat tourism is fast becoming a boom industry. The new fad was started by New York resident Kenny Bollwerk, who began uploading videos of rats running around the city to his TikTok account, and even live-streamed the vermin in action. The stream became a hit, with over 10,000 viewers watching, and soon Bollwerk began receiving inquiries from tourists arriving in New York who asked that he take them to see the city’s rat hotbeds for themselves.
