SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

How often are you able to see your friends these days? According to a new poll, the average person spends just 4 hours a month socializing with friends – usually meeting up just twice. And more than a quarter of the 2,000 adults polled said they are spending less time in person with friends this year compared to last. The trend is most apparent among millennials aged 25-34, where 37% say they are struggling to find time for pals – compared to 33% of 35-44-year-olds. Gen Zers between 18-24 are the only age group spending MORE time with their FRIENDS this year, as opposed to less. The top 3 reasons for not spending more time with friends are distance (36%), a busy work schedule (35%), and family commitments (33%).

Keeping secrets can be a good thing, according to a new study – as long as the news is positive. Columbia University researchers asked 4,000 test participants whether they planned to discuss and share good news secrets with others — or keep them private. They found that good news that was being kept a secret was more “energizing” than good news that was not a secret — leading people to want to keep the good news to themselves. Although previous research has suggested that keeping secrets is bad for our well-being, the lead author says those studies “only examined keeping secrets that have negative implications for our lives.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A study shows being tortured changes the way you feel pain forever.

Apparently, there’s a glow-in-the-dark ice cream.

A dog named Daisy embraced her inner Lassie, leading her owner to a mineshaft where a missing cat was waiting to be rescued. After nearly a week of searching for her cat Mowgli, Michele Rose had “almost given up hope” of finding him. But suddenly, her dog started “going berserk,” running back and forth between their house and the nearby woods. Rose followed Daisy to an old 100-foot-deep mineshaft that Mowgli had fallen into. Rose calls her dog a “superstar”, and feels that without her actions, “Mowgli could still be down there, that’s for sure.” He was in good condition after firefighters rescued him, and happy to reunite with Rose – and with Daisy!
