SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
You may feel, as a parent, that having kids consists of a never-ending series of losing battles, but according to a new survey, the average parent enjoys a whopping 190 “parenting wins” per year. The top 3 wins reported by Moms and Dads are when their kid takes care of their hygiene (16%), gets dressed in time for school (15%), and eats fruits and vegetables (14%). On the other hand, parents also reported 218 “cave-ins” per year. Those include letting their kid eat the foods and snacks they want (21%), letting them have dessert before dinner (18%) and giving them a device during mealtime (17%). The survey of 2,000 parents with school-age kids also found that in order to get children to eat healthy, parents set up a reward system (17%), add dressing, sauce, dip, whipped cream or ice cream to their kid’s food (14%), and use utensils or dinnerware with characters on them (11%).

you pay nearly US$14 a month to use Instagram on your phone without
ads? How about nearly $17 a month for ad-free Instagram plus Facebook
— but on desktop? That’s what Meta wants to charge Europeans for
monthly subscriptions if they don’t agree to let the company use
their digital activity to target ads, according to a proposal the
social-media giant has made to regulators. That’s Meta’s solution
to the European Union rules that threaten to restrict its ability to
show users personalized ads without user consent — jeopardizing its
main source of revenue.

A Houston man was arrested after robbing a Little Caesars Pizza, then barricading himself inside a 4-story office building
Brian Schwartz wants to mow your lawn. The man has pull-started an international kindness movement after losing his job due to the pandemic, simply as a means of making a positive impact in the world. He started a volunteer lawn care organization to help seniors, the disabled, and veterans mow their lawns, trim their hedges, and cut back their trees. And he does it all for free. While the “I Want to Mow Your Lawn” movement sprouted its grassroots in New Jersey, it has spread internationally, meaning Schwartz now oversees over 500 volunteers in 46 states, with similar organizations springing up in Australia, the UK, and Canada. I Want To Mow Your Lawn and its volunteers have spruced up over 2,000 lawns, and the organization has recently expanded to include sustainable garden planning, such as installing rock gardens, native gardens, and switching to battery-operated equipment.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
From the department of “it was going to happen sooner or later”, a church used ChatGPT AI to deliver the Sunday sermon. Pastor Jay Cooper of Violet Crown City Church in North Austin used the language-learning model to do the lord’s work — by having it write not only sermons, but prayers…and a song as well at the Methodist church. He said the reason he used the bot to deliver the Sunday service was to “inform our congregation about AI and to understand its potential and its limitations.” And apparently, the ChatGPT program did reveal some limitations: The sermon was received by many as “shallow and generic” according to the preacher, but it did create “meaningful conversation” among parishioners. However, Cooper calls the AI message a one-time experience, at least for now.
