SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

An advisory panel of the US Food and Drug Administration has concluded that virtually all over-the-counter decongestants simply don’t work. The FDA panel found that phenylephrine — the active ingredient in Sudafed, Benadryl, Robitussin and other popular decongestants — is nearly useless at reducing nasal congestion. The advisory panel’s ruling might lead to these oral products being pulled off store shelves nationwide.

Coca-Cola has launched its latest creation, “Coca-Cola Y3000”, which it calls the first flavor created by artificial intelligence, with some help from humans. Coca-Cola Y3000 is the latest limited-edition flavor to launch under its “Coca-Cola Creations” platform.

The whodunit series “Murder, She Wrote” is getting a movie reboot. Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo, the writing duo behind the Toronto International Film Festival hit “Dumb Money,” say they have written the script for the film, which will be produced for Universal. The film is currently on hold during the strike. Originally running on CBS from 1984-1996, “Murder, She Wrote” starred Angela Lansbury as a mystery writer who applies her skill to solving real life homicides.

Ellen DeGeneres is returning to television. The former daytime host, whose “Ellen DeGeneres Show” ended its 19-year run last year, will appear on Discovery Channel’s special “Saving the Gorillas: Ellen’s Next Adventure”. Launching Sept. 23, a day before National Gorilla Day, the special “focuses on Ellen’s commitment to saving the gorillas,” according to the network, “and her dream of protecting Dian Fossey’s legacy by building the The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda, which opened last year.” Fossey was a renowned conservationist and primatologist who was murdered while studying in Rwanda in 1985.

After announcing late that “Real Time” will start producing new episodes without writers amid the ongoing strike, Bill Maher received harsh criticism not only from members of the the Writers Guild of America and their supporters, but also from the guild itself. WGA West, which Maher belongs to, said in a statement that the decision to resume the show during the strike is “disappointing,” and urged him to “honor more than the ‘spirit of the strike,’” referencing a quote from Maher’s announcement. It said that Mahar “is obligated to follow the strike rules and not perform any writing service.” WGA also confirmed that the guild intends to picket the show.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Some British pubs are getting on the “surge pricing” train, and charging more for beer at popular drinking times. Stonegate, the largest pub company in the UK, known for popular chains like the Slug and Lettuce and Craft Union, has implemented a significant price increase on pints during its busiest evening and weekend hours. At about 800 locations, so-called “dynamic pricing” adjustment will amount to an extra 20p (US 25 cents) per pint at peak times. Dynamic pricing has been adopted in various industries, including airlines, hotel chains, ride-hailing platforms, and, of course, by Ticketmaster.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A British Columbia man called police because he was offended by what another man was wearing. A 27-year-old Trail resident called cops to complain, saying he was “offended on behalf of the military” at the sight of a man wearing camouflage pants, because he believed civilians were not allowed to do so. He requested that an officer find the man — and remove his pants. The caller also told the officer he was willing to remove the man’s pants himself “under order of King of England.” The officer informed him that forcefully removing the man’s pants would constitute an assault — and dissuaded him from taking action.
