SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

If you’re looking to lose weight, you’re best off to workout early in the morning, according to a new study. Researchers at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire found that moderate to vigorous exercise between 7-9am is best-suited to helping you lose weight. Their research found that those who did their exercising in the early hours, as opposed to working out around mid-day or in the evening, had a lower body mass index and waist circumference than the other groups — even though this group was the most sedentary of the 3.

An unusually well-preserved dinosaur skeleton, known as “Barry”, will go under the hammer. The remains of the Camptosaurus, which dates from the late Jurassic period 150 million years ago, was discovered in Wyoming in the 1990s. It was restored in 2000 by palaeontologist Barry James, from whom it got its name. Italian laboratory Zoic, which acquired Barry last year, has done further restoration work on the skeleton, which is 2.1 meters (6.9 feet) tall and 5 meters (16.4 feet) long. The skeleton is expected to fetch up to $1.3million when it goes on sale on October 20.

The Golden Globes has added 2 new categories that will recognize achievements in blockbuster movies and standup comedy. The winners of both categories will be announced at the 81st Golden Globe Awards, on January 7. Officially, the new categories will be titled ‘Cinematic and Box Office Achievement in Motion Pictures’ and ‘Best Stand-Up Comedian on Television’.

David Letterman isn’t an actor, but that didn’t stop him from auditioning for the 1980 comedy classic “Airplane!”, a new book says. In “Surely You Can’t Be Serious: The True History of Airplane!” by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker, the comedy trio quote Letterman’s story of his truly terrible screen test for the role of ‘Ted Striker’, in which he said: “I get out there, and they had set up a cockpit for the aircraft…We did the scene once, and then they came in and gave me some notes, and then we did it maybe 2 more times. And I kept saying all along, ‘I can’t act, I can’t act, I can’t act,’ and then one of them came to me after the audition and said, ‘You’re right: you can’t act!'”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Your morning cuppa might be the highlight of your day – but which is healthier for you – coffee or tea? Both are rich sources of antioxidants, which are compounds that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. But Dan Gallagher, a registered dietitian with Aegle Nutrition in Texas, said that like most foods, coffee, and tea can be made unhealthy depending on what is added to them. But those factors aside, here’s a quick breakdown of some of the benefits of each:


It helps boost mental alertness.

It can enhance physical performance.

It potentially reduces the risk of some diseases, including cancer.

It can make you go. (I’ll leave it at that!)


It helps boost mental alertness.

Some herbal teas are good for digestive health.

It potentially reduces the risk of some diseases, including cancer and heart disease.

So, which is healthier? Alas, like many nutritional debates, there is no “definite” answer. But to fully take advantage of the health benefits of either, consider eliminating or reducing added sugars and syrups, as well as excessive cream or milk, particularly high-fat versions. And choose high-quality coffee beans or tea leaves.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A group of wild monkeys raided a supermarket and made off with – you guessed it — a haul of bananas, in a bizarre hit-and-run theft in Thailand. The simians left heir normal foraging grounds in a nearby forest to hit up a 7-11 for whatever bananas they could lay their hairy hands on. Video shows the monkeys ransacking plastic crates, taking food, then running away in rotation. When shop workers try to chase them away, the monkeys just sit on nearby wires, out of reach. The local monkeys stand about 2 feet tall and weigh only 15 pounds, but are aggressive and travel in groups, and they’ve even been known to steal food out of tourists’ hands.
