SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Sure, doing cardio is good for your health, but if you’re looking to burn fat and build muscle, you’re way better off pumping iron. A new study found that those who did strength training lost more fat, built more muscle, and had better blood sugar maintenance than those who did cardio, or a combination of both. Researchers from Stanford University looked at nearly 200 people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes who participated in a 9-month exercise routine of strength training, cardio or both. Their findings show that the group that did just strength training exercises had better progress, compared to those who utilized the treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike. The researchers point out that while one workout of strength training might not burn as many calories as a cardio workout, it builds muscle tissue — which requires more energy to maintain — so a program of strength training can ultimately burn more calories overall.

A new study has changed everything pet researchers thought they knew about a cat’s purr. Researchers from the University of Vienna found that a special “pad” in the vocal folds may help cats make these low-frequency noises. Even more surprisingly, the team found cats don’t need to constantly send signals from their brain in order to keep purring. This is a major departure from what scientists have thought for decades. Simply put, when your cat starts rolling out a long purr, this behavior appears to be on “auto-pilot” — they’ll keep going without having to think about it.

You’d think that volunteering to go on a reality TV series based on a show about a deadly competition would mean you’re prepared to at least ‘fake die’ — but based on the new trailer for “Squid Game: The Challenge,” that didn’t occur to every contestant. In the new promo for the unscripted show, which debuts Nov. 22 on Netflix, 456 people are competing for the $4.56 million prize, just like in the first season of “Squid Game.” Of course, in this game, people’s lives aren’t actually on the line — but they still get fake “shot” during a game, and go tumbling to their supposed “death” off a bridge in a later challenge. And being fake-killed is still apparently shocking, judging by the reaction of the first to be “hit”. LINK:

Tom Bergeron recently opened up about his firing from “Dancing With the Stars”. During an interview with Cheryl Burke for her “Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans” podcast, Bergeron mentioned a time when he strongly advocated for keeping political figures of any kind off the show. He says show execs agreed with him initially, but weeks later they told him that Sean Spicer, the ex-White House Press Secretary for the Trump administration, was coming on the show in 2019. Bergeron said that made him furious, and he even offered to “take this season off”. He eventually decided to not make an issue out of it, but felt he should “at least…let people know that they…lied to me.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A report claims that you can save about $750 a year on food by becoming a vegetarian.

Sarah Bohan was on mile 21 of the Chicago Marathon this month when she happened to spot an abandoned kitten under a pile of leaves. Bohan was on pace for a personal record, but she was also running on “Team PAWS Chicago” to benefit the animal welfare organization, and knew she couldn’t leave the cat behind. Sprinting into action, she asked several people along the route if they’d take him, and after a mile, she met the kitten’s match, Andrea Maldonado. Her family has 2 cats and a dog already, but she welcomed the new addition because “the more the merrier.” The kitten, now named Casper, received a clean bill of health and has settled right in with the Maldonados.

Really? Tinder is now letting the people in your life — including, perhaps, your parents — play cupid for you. The world’s most popular dating app has launched “Tinder Matchmaker”, a new feature that lets a user’s friends and family access Tinder, to recommend profiles for them. The new feature could help you figure out if a potential match passes the “friend test” — and if they’ll get your parents’ approval. Tinder says that over 75% of singles said in a survey that they discuss their dating life with friends multiple times a month.
