So – sushi tonight? A Japanese study has found that the spicy green topping wasabi could be very good for your memory. Going into the research, the team at Tohoku University knew that wasabi was linked to a wealth of health benefits — such as antibiotic, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties — but say they were “surprised” to see the “dramatic change” in participants’ cognition. In the 12-week study, they found that test participants who consumed the wasabi extract 6-MSITC regularly, showed about an 18% improvement in long and short-term memory. Researchers believe the wasabi extract lowered the levels of oxidants and inflammation in the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory.

half of music fans believe that the guitar riff is on its deathbed,
according to a new survey by UK TV channel Sky Arts. It polled “music
aficionados” to rank the nation’s “favourite 6-string riff of
all time” and uncover other guitar-focused insights for its
documentary “Greatest Guitar Riffs”. 53% of participants said
they thought that the riff was dying out. On the positive side, 83%
said they prefer music with guitars in it. The top 5 riffs, in order,
were determined to be: ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ – Guns N’

The upcoming “Road House” remake starring Jake Gyllenhaal will not get a theatrical release. Amid producer Joel Silver’s firing over accusations of verbal abuse against 2 female executives, Amazon Studios has reportedly nixed plans to drop the movie in theaters and is said to be eyeing an early 2024 release as a streaming title under Amazon’s MGM label. The remake of the classic ’80s action pic follows Gyllenhaal’s character, a former UFC fighter who “takes a job as a bouncer at a rough-and-tumble roadhouse in the Florida Keys”. The film also features UFC star Conor McGregor.
Angelina Jolie is ready to leave Hollywood. The “Maleficent” star recently opened up about her decision to eventually leave the LA area, but said she hasn’t been able to do so quite yet due to ongoing custody and estate issues related to her divorce from Brad Pitt. She told WSJ: “After my divorce, I lost the ability to live and travel as freely. I will move when I can.” Jolie stated she was never really “impressed” with the culture of the city of stars, saying: “I never bought into it as significant or important.” She plans to spend more time in the future at her home in Cambodia with her children.
Remember “Barbenheimer”? That was when 2 of the biggest movies of the year were released on the same day, July 21. Well, that might not have happened, had Oppenheimer’s producer had his way. Margot Robbie revealed to Cillian Murphy on Variety’s “Actors on Actors,” that she got a call from Charles Roven, and he asked her to change the Barbie release date, so it wouldn’t open on the same day as Oppenheimer. Robbie quote: “And he was like, ‘I think you guys should move your date.’ And I was like, ‘We’re not moving our date. If you’re scared to be up against us, then you move your date.’ And he’s like, ‘We’re not moving our date. I just think it’d be better for you to move.’ And I was like, ‘We’re not moving!’” No problem, though — Barbie became the highest-grossing film of the year, and Oppenheimer went on to become the highest-grossing biopic of all time.

Billions of years from now, Earth will have a 30-hour day.
A young girl’s idea for a ‘mailbox to heaven’ has been utilized at cemeteries across the UK. 10-year-old Matilda Handy came up with the suggestion after both her grandparents died, 5 years apart. Her mother, Leanne, approached the Gedling Crematorium in Nottingham last year with the idea—and they responded by erecting an old post box painted white and gold just in time for Christmas. The emotional endeavor proved so popular that they now have been rolled out across 40 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales. Soon after installation, more than 100 letters were dropped in the first box, which aims to be a comfort to those longing for loved ones on anniversaries and holidays. The idea has since been adopted by UK funeral directors, too, and other countries are doing the same.
