A new study published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science suggests that giving an anxious dog a chew toy can actually help improve its memory. Auburn University researchers found that “for anxious dogs, chewing on something can help them focus and decrease physiological arousal, while for calmer dogs, chewing could actually be a distraction.” They believe that anxious dogs can gain a “therapeutic effect from the chewing” which may reduce stress levels.

“heads or tails” isn’t quite as fair as we’ve been led to
believe. University of Amsterdam researchers discovered that there’s
a natural bias that occurs when flipping a coin. In an experiment,
coins were flipped 350,757 times – and it was found that the side
that was originally facing up came back to the same position 50.8% of
the time. While that may not seem like much, the scientists say this
is “overwhelming evidence for a same-side bias.” To illustrate
this, they pointed out that “If you bet a dollar on the outcome of
a coin toss 1000 times, knowing the starting position of the coin
toss would earn you $19, on average.”

Is a “Seinfeld” revival in the works? During a stand-up show in Boston over the weekend, Jerry Seinfeld teased that possibility – we think. Seinfeld referred to the iconic comedy series finale, telling the crowd that he has a “little secret” and that “something is going to happen” related to that ending. He teased: “It hasn’t happened yet. And just what you are thinking about, Larry [David] and I have also been thinking about, so you’ll see… you’ll see.” He didn’t elaborate, so we’ll have to stay tuned.
Joel McHale isn’t bothered by Chevy Chase’s recent comments about their comedy “Community.” Chase made headlines last month on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast, saying the show “wasn’t funny enough.” Now, McHale has told People that Chase “stopped hurting my feelings in 2009.” McHale, who played ‘Jeff Winger’ on the sitcom, said: “I was like, ‘Hey, no one was keeping you there. I mean, we weren’t sentenced to that show.” McHale also pointed out that Chase “could have left” if he really wanted to, but, as he put it, “That’s Chevy being Chevy.” Chase left the NBC show after Season 4 in 2013 after reportedly using a racist slur toward costar Donald Glover.
It appears Gerry Turner has stolen audiences’ hearts. In its first week, the premiere episode of “The Golden Bachelor” managed to deliver an audience of more than 11M total viewers across linear and streaming platforms. That includes both the debut telecast on September 28, and its rebroadcast on October 3. The Sept. 28 broadcast alone soared to 9M viewers after 7 days of delayed viewing, according to ABC, making it the strongest multiplatform telecast for any series within “The Bachelor” franchise in more than 2 years, when Matt James was the lead.

Here it is: Your annual excuse NOT to rake the leaves that are piling higher on your lawn by the day. The Nature Conservancy of Canada has a green-friendly response for those of us who’d like to avoid the back-breaking and callus-creating task of clearing the leaves: Just don’t do it. Why not? There are 3 major benefits to keeping the leaves in the yard during fall. First, it helps biodiversity, as there are many native insects and small critters such as frogs and toads that will hibernate under the leaves during the winter. As well, it is a food source for birds, such as robins, since they will often forage among the leaves to look for insects to eat. The other benefit is to the lawn itself. Leaves provide a natural mulch when they break down, which helps soil development. While large piles of leaves can impact the growth of grass and other plants come spring, a thin layer of leaves can help maintain the health of gardens and lawns.
