Now are we going to start blaming young people for the demise of the nightclub? A new poll indicates that these days, many young – and young-ish — adults are attending house parties as a main social outlet, rather than heading out to a bar. The survey of 2,000 adults aged 18-45 found that 75% have attended or arranged a house party during the last 12 months – and 23% have been to more of them compared to the year prior. Why the sudden interest in “going out by staying in”? In a word: money. The biggest draw, cited by 44% of respondents, is to save money amid the cost-of-living crisis. 39% said they like house parties because they tend to know many of the guests, while 44% enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

10-year-old boy has started a petition to convince Apple to change
one of its emojis. Teddy, from Oxfordshire, England, would like the
emoji renamed that wears black frame glasses and has 2 buck teeth
sticking out, which the company currently calls the “nerd” emoji.
The young glasses-wearer told the BBC: “They’re making people
think we’re nerds and it’s absolutely horrible…and if I find it
offensive there’ll be thousands of people around the world that
find it offensive too.” He is asking Apple to the change the name
of the emoji to the “Genius” emoji, and to tweak the design to
the new one he put together, featuring the same black glasses but
with a closed smile…and no buck teeth. LINK:

Blake Lively is lifting up Beyoncé and Taylor Swift. The “Gossip Girl” star shared a powerful message about women empowering other women after attending the premiere of “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé”. Sharing her thoughts on the 2 singers’ support of each other, Lively began the caption of her Instagram post, writing: “When I grew up, women were always pit against one another. It took me until adulthood to see that the instinct for women to lift each other up to their highest potential is the norm, not the exception…It’s our job to show younger generations the power in aligning rather than dividing.” She also shared a carousel of photos from the premiere, including shots of Swift in attendance. Lively ended her post by joking: “@beyonce and @taylorswift neither of you have to be threatened by my pop stardom. There’s space for us all.” LINK: https://tinyurl.com/4xy7hmwd
Good news for East Coast movie fans: The 96th Academy Awards, which will air on March 10, will start earlier than any prior edition, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced. Rather than starting at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern, as has been the case in recent years, the Oscars will begin at 4pm pacific, 7pm Eastern, following a half-hour pre-show. The decision was apparently driven by a desire to have the show wrap within primetime hours on the East Coast, after a historical dropoff in viewership as the evening progressed, particularly on the earlier coast, due to viewer’s need to get up for work the following morning. The telecast is scheduled to last 3½ hours.
A “bloody” war is coming to Westeros. The first teaser for season 2 of HBO’s “House of the Dragon” has dropped, teasing a brutal and merciless war between the Targaryens and the Hightowers. The clip of action-packed scenes brought several familiar faces back to the screen — including ‘Rhaenyra Targaryen’ (Emma D’Arcy), ‘Alicent Hightower’ (Olivia Cooke), ‘Otto Hightower’ (Rhys Ifans) and ‘Daemon Targaryen’ (Matt Smith) — as tensions between the 2 former best friends set to reach a crescendo following the devastating season one finale. Season 2 debuts next summer. LINK: https://tinyurl.com/bddxxpsw

This year, mall Santas are trying to lower kids’ expectations, because of the bad economy.
A San Francisco biotech company has announced that the FDA has conditionally approved its “longevity drug” for dogs. (Paws for applause!) That’s correct, “Loyal” claims its life-lengthening injections, known as “LOY-001”, work by decreasing the amount of the growth hormone IGF-1, which is in abundance in large dogs. The problem is that it not only causes larger breeds to grow, it also reduces their lifespan. This helps explain why some smaller dogs can live as long as 20 years, while very large dogs such as Great Danes and Newfoundlands may only live 7-8 years. The injection would only be given to dogs over age 7, so as not to interfere with their growth. It is not known how many years the LOY-001 will add to a dog’s life. The drug still must undergo a series of complicated tests for full approval. Loyal hopes to make it available in 2026.
