According to a new study, men tend to let their female partners win when they’re competing against one another in games and challenges. Researchers at the North China University of Science and Technology determined that men may go easy on their wives and girlfriends in order to avoid conflict and “prevent them from leaving or being poached” by another male. Lead author Shuyu Jia concluded that: “Male partners may be adopting a ‘happy wife, happy life’ mentality…by allowing their spouse to win.” It should be pointed out, though, that the study also found that women were less competitive when playing against their partner than when playing against male strangers.

smartphone app may soon be able to tell you if you are too drunk to
drive — by listening to you read tongue-twisters. Scientists at
Stanford Medicine and the University of Toronto worked together on
the premise that built-in sensors in smartphones could gauge a
person’s level of intoxication through vocal changes. Study
participants read the tongue-twisters aloud while a smartphone,
positioned on a table, recorded their speech. Using digital software,
the research team examined things such as frequency and pitch, and
how those attributes changed with alcohol consumption. Comparisons
between the voice pattern change and breathalyzer readings
demonstrated a 98% accuracy rate in predicting intoxication. The
researchers say that future sobriety apps may incorporate multiple
types of sensors, including for detecting changes in gait and texting

They’re not ‘Movin’ Out’ after all. In a bold move amid the uncertain tides of the real estate market, two iconic New Yorkers, Billy Joel and Alec Baldwin, have opted to retain their lavish estates. The ‘Piano Man’ made headlines in May when he listed his 26-acre estate in Oyster Bay for an eye-watering $49 million. Insiders say that Joel has had a change of heart, and will keep his keys a little longer. Meanwhile, Baldwin tossed his Amagansett estate onto the market in September 2022, with a hefty $29 million price tag. After a series of dramatic price slashes, resulting in a final listing price of $22.5 million, Baldwin has now decided to pull the 10-acre retreat off the market as well. Average mortgage rates stand at 8.07% over 30 years, contributing to the recent shift in the once hyper-competitive housing market.

Apparently, the word in the retail industry is that stores should tread lightly these days when it comes to self-checkouts. The backlash against it is growing, and many businesses have made moves to dial back on the technology — after it exploded over the past few years. British supermarkets chain Booths recently announced that it is removing self-checkout stations in all but 2 of its 28 stores. In the US, Walmart, Costco, Wegmans and other chains have also revised their self-checkout strategies. Why? They’ve found that self-checkout leads to more losses – through customer errors AND intentional shoplifting. And what scams are people most-often using to beat the system? Common tactics include not scanning an item, swapping a cheaper item (bananas) for a more expensive one (steak), scanning counterfeit barcodes attached to their wrists, or even properly scanning everything — and then walking out without paying.
