The number of people who are living to at least 100 years old has doubled over the past decade. And many old-timers credit their longevity, at least partly, to their positive attitude. But not so fast, says a psychology expert. David Watson, a former professor of personality psychology at the University of Notre Dame, says the effects of being positive are overstated, and conscientiousness, or how organized and disciplined you are, is the key to living a long life. That’s probably because people with high degrees of conscientiousness are better at taking care of themselves. Conscientious people tend to drink alcohol in moderation and eat more balanced meals, he says. Also, according to him: “Conscientious people don’t do stupid things, so they have lower rates of accidents.”

Scientists say that the thing you might hate most about a tall glass of beer is the thing that makes it taste so great. A paper published in the Journal of the American Society of Brewing Chemists, found that a beer’s foam makes it doubly aromatic, thereby making it more delicious. The bubble-bursting Japanese study concluded that the bubbles in beer hold flavor compounds, and when a bubble bursts, the flavor is released into the air — and right into the drinker’s nose.

Suits” actor Patrick J. Adams has apologized for sharing behind-the-scenes photos of his former co-star Meghan Markle on social media amid the SAG-AFTRA writer’s strike. In a statement on Instagram, he wrote that posting the photos amid the standoff, which have since been deleted, was “an embarrassing oversight” and that he is “incredibly sorry”, and he thanked “those who gently and swiftly course corrected me here and I look forward to continuing the fight in the days and weeks ahead.” Adams had shared several never-before-seen snaps of the Duchess of Sussex posing sensually in character as paralegal ‘Rachel Zane’.

Dwayne Johnson isn’t forgetting his past. He shared a candid Instagram video message with fans on Saturday, after a follower asked him to explain the benefits and drawbacks of fame. In the clip, The Rock said: “For me, the drawbacks are, there are no drawbacks to fame.” He said he’s been lucky to be famous for a long time, and for him, “Back in the day, the alternative to fame [was] not being famous, and I couldn’t pay rent, I was struggling to figure out who I was, I was broke.” Johnson then noted that remembering his past struggles with money gives him “good perspective,” “balance” and “an anchor” for when the “blender of noise can always follow fame”, and he says he “never let that go…so it keeps me hungry.” LINK:

Kevin Bacon’s farm came with a spooky stipulation! On a recent episode of Rob Lowe’s podcast “Literally!”, Bacon recounted the creepy story of some farmland property he purchased in Connecticut in 1983. The “Footloose” star had been buying parcels of land in the area, but one owner refused to sell because of the “abandoned house” that was on it, in which he grew up. Bacon told Lowe: “He says, ‘I can’t sell it to you because it’s haunted. I’m afraid that you’ll get possessed and do some serious damage.’” Bacon said that the 2 “finally came to an agreement (and) in the contract…I had to destroy it within a month (of purchase).”

Adidas’ newest running shoes, worn by Ethiopia’s Tigist Assefa to set a new women’s marathon record, went on sale with an eyelet-watering price tag. It seems that Adidas, its rival Nike, and other sports brands have been locked in a “supershoe” war since the first running shoes containing a thick, shock-absorbing foam and carbon fibre plate to help athletes run more efficiently, were released years ago. And at $500 a pair, the Adizero Adios Pro Evo 1 cost $225 more than Nike’s equivalent Alphafly 2, raising the question of how many amateur runners will be willing to go the distance…on the price.
