A massive study has revealed the only habit you can adopt — that is linked to bettering your intelligence. According to an analysis of over 1,300 studies involving millions of people, openness to engage and explore new experiences, ideas, information, etc., is the only personality trait with a substantial correlation to intelligence. Researchers at University of California say they also found that being the stereotypical “moody genius” is actually a strong predictor of lower intelligence.

phenomenon of seeing a smile in an inanimate object is called ‘face
pareidolia’, and researchers have found that it is more common
among women who just gave birth. When shown images of random objects,
postpartum women tended to identify illusionary faces not seen by
other women. Researchers think this is because new mothers have
higher levels of oxytocin, the “love” and “trust” hormone
involved in social bonding, which previous studies have connected to
the brain’s ability to recognize facial expressions.

Despite previous reports, Robert DeNiro will NOT be rehashing his famous “You Talkin’ to me” line in a commercial for Uber. Messenger quotes a source as saying the Academy Award winner won’t be reprising his role as ‘Travis Bickle’ from 1976’s “Taxi Driver”, or using any of the character’s lines for his upcoming Uber commercial. However, according to an Uber spokesperson, De Niro will indeed star in an ad filming “in London for a new Uber UK campaign, which will launch later in the year.”

Usher will be the headlining performer at the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime show. Apple Music, the NFL and Roc Nation made the announcement yesterday. The game takes place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 11. Usher said: “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before.” This will actually mark his second Super Bowl appearance. He performed — and saved the day — for the Black Eyed Peas when that group headlined the big game in 2011. LINK: https://tinyurl.com/45fnj9uv

It’s the eternal household battle. Well, one of them, at least: Should you rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher? Well, if popular opinion is the barometer, the answer is…yes. According to a survey commissioned by energy experts Utilita, 62% of dishwasher owners admit to washing their items before putting them in the machine. The problem, the company says, is that this leads to a staggering 95 million liters of cold water being poured down the sink every single day, totaling 7.6 billion gallons annually. 59% say they pre-rinse dishes because they think it prevents long-term machine issues. However, 53% of those who DON’T pre-rinse counter this by arguing that dishwashers are designed to wash dishes thoroughly, making the step unnecessary. 42% said they only load their dishwasher when their dishes are “sparkling clean”, which, if nothing else, seems kind of odd. Utilita says people who rinse with hot water spend an average of $46.54 per year to do so, while those who use cold water spend about $13.70. Other reasons given for pre-rinsing dishes included: Wanting to keep the dishwasher clean, avoiding breaking the machine, Force of habit, and to avoid the dishwasher smelling.
