Lately, we’ve been hearing more and more about the possible negative physical effects of drinking alcohol. With that in mind, a new study suggests the solution to ending problem drinking could be as simple as . . . smaller glasses. Researchers from the University of Cambridge conducted a study involving 21 pubs and bars in the UK, where they removed the option of serving wine in large glasses (250ml, about ⅓ a bottle of wine). What they discovered was this: Eliminating that larger glass option resulted in an average decrease of just under 8% in wine sales. And interestingly, despite this reduction, pub owners did not suffer financially, because smaller glasses typically have higher profit margins. And there was no corresponding increase in beer or cider sales during this period, indicating that people didn’t compensate for their decreased wine consumption by drinking more of other alcoholic beverages. While an 8% reduction in wine sales may seem modest, the researchers say that removing the largest serving size could be an effective strategy for encouraging customers to drink less alcohol.

A recent survey found that many believe that eating healthy during the day gives us a “hall pass” to overindulge in unhealthy food at night. The poll of 2,000 US residents found the average person overdoes it in unhealthy food 3 nights per week. Six in 10 (62%) admitted they always sacrifice taste over nutritional value when it comes snack time. Snacks are considered a “must” for 83% of people — who say they have “at least” 2 a day.

Dakota Johnson is setting her alarm—and the record straight. After making headlines for seemingly saying she needs to get 14 hours of sleep every night, the “Fifty Shades” actress explained things on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. First off, she clarified that she “didn’t even say” she ‘needs 14 hours of sleep’, but QUOTE: “I said that I could easily sleep 14 hours. I don’t demand it.” Laughing, she added: “I’m not a monster. I have a job!” She also had some words for those critical of her sleeping habits, asking: “Leave me alone!…I’m literally doing nothing. I’m just sleeping!”

An Australian police department has joked it is “investigating” Margot Robbie’s Oscars snub. Victoria Police is having some fun on social media after the “Barbie” actress – who was born and raised in Queensland – failed to land a nomination in the best actress category for the Academy Awards, while co-star Ryan Gosling did get a nod for his role as ‘Ken’. Alongside a collage of pics of Robbie, the cops wrote: “Police are investigating after a former resident of Ramsay Street was allegedly robbed of an Oscar nomination for best actress.” The force also took the opportunity to encourage local residents to report all non-urgent crimes, such as theft, using an online reporting tool.

A 20-year-old amateur golfer just won a PGA Tour event, but he’s not allowed to collect the $1.5 million prize. Sunday, Nick Dunlap, a sophomore who plays golf for the University of Alabama, came out on top at the PGA West golf course in La Quinta CA. His score of 29-under par was one stroke better than professional Christiaan Bezuidenhout. But Dunlap won’t be able to take home the $1,512,000 prize, because of his amateur status. That means Bezuidenhout will receive the first-place cash. Dunlap is the first amateur to win a PGA Tour event since 1991, when a young Phil Mickelson won the Tucson Open.

Officials at a British zoo say that a group of foul-mouthed parrots that were isolated from the rest of the flock are being moved back in with the rest of the chatty birds in the hopes of cleaning up their language. The Lincolnshire Wildlife Park famously received 5 African gray parrots from different owners in 2020, and the new arrivals spent their time in quarantine teaching each other a variety of profanities. The birds were removed from the rest of the zoo’s flock to keep them from teaching bad words to dozens of other parrots. Now, the recent arrival of 3 more potty-mouthed parrots led operators to make the decision to put all 8 of the cussing birds in with the rest of the parrots. The chief executive of the park said keepers are hoping the swearing parrots will learn better etiquette from the rest of the flock, instead of the other way around. Otherwise, he said, “We might end up with 100 swearing parrots on our hands.”

We’ve been told forever about the health-boosting effects of green tea, but scientists are now saying the stuff is also good for your MENTAL health. In short, it makes you happier. Previous research has shown the positive quali-teas of the drink, such as reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Maggie Moon a brain health nutrition expert, says that the major components of green tea include caffeine, theanine, arginine and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). The combination of those bioactive ingredients can lead to both same-day and long-lasting elevation of mental health and mood, as well as anti-inflammatory and longevity effects. A study found that those who consume at least 3 cups of green tea per week have a 21% less chance of depression compared to those who don’t.

Netflix plans to “retire” its cheapest ad-free plan in the countries where it is still available. The streaming giant has already limited the $11.99-a-month Basic subscription, blocking new or returning users from signing up for the plan in the US and UK since July. Now, Netflix says it’ll phase out the plan elsewhere, starting with the UK and Canada, in the second quarter of the year. Netflix recently raised the plan’s price from $9.99 to $11.99 a month for subscribers in the US, UK, and France, with the premium plan rising $3 to $22.99. Netflix’s next cheapest ad-free plan costs $15.49 a month. A plan with advertising is also available at $6.99 a month.

Franchises find a way. Universal has greenlit a 4th “Jurassic World” movie with the revived series’ original screenwriter, David Koepp, on board. While plot details are scarce, insiders say the film will start a new storyline separate from the trilogy of “Jurassic World” films that starred Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, and eventually also included Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and B.D.

Dolph Lundgren currently stars in “Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom” as ‘King Nereus’, but he thinks “maybe there won’t be” another sequel. Speaking with a reporter, Lundgren opened up about some of his biggest comic book roles, including Aquaman and his role as in the original “Punisher” film from 1989. When mentioning Aquaman, Lundgren said: “We’ll see if there’s any more Aquaman. I heard maybe there won’t be, so, we’ll see.” He also shared that all Marvel films are part of the Marvel Universe, which means that his version of ‘Frank Castle’ from Punisher could make a cameo at some point. When asked if this is something he’d be interested in, Lundgren replied, “Yeah, why not?”

A smartphone app that can tell a defendant what to say in court using AI has been used for the first time — and it’s a lot cheaper than a real lawyer. California-based company DoNotPay says it’s the first time AI has been used during a trial anywhere in the world. The neural network listens to all speeches from witnesses, lawyers, and the judge, then tells the defendant exactly what to say through an earpiece, urging them to stick to only those words. In this case, legal history was made over a speeding ticket. The identity of the accused and location were not disclosed by DoNotPay, but the breakthrough may set a precedent for more serious cases in the future.

February 14 is coming, and if you feel like getting your ‘special someone’ a gift that’s a little different, zoos in New York and Texas are here for you. They’re offering the chance to buy naming rights for cockroaches. The Bronx Zoo says you can pay to have a Madagascar hissing cockroach named after your Valentine, with other gift packages available, including roach socks, stuffed roaches and a “virtual roach encounter”. But the San Antonio Zoo is taking a different approach. Its “Cry Me a Cockroach” fundraiser lets jilted patrons to pay to have a roach, rat or vegetable named for their ex-lover — before it is fed to another zoo animal. The zoo’s website says: “San Antonio Zoo will help squash your past, a true heartbreak healer, by feeding your selection to an animal resident.” The zoo is also offering a candle bearing the scent of hippo poo as a Valentine’s gift, because apparently poop “is the cologne of the hippo world and is used to impress potential mates.” LINK:

Stanley cups are all the rage these days, and we’re not talking about the NHL championship trophy. The Stanley company’s “Quencher” tumblers are selling out in minutes and causing frenzies in supermarkets. But it seems one California woman wasn’t interested in paying up to $60 for a water cup. Police in Roseville pulled over and arrested a 23-year-old woman with 65 stolen Stanley cups valued at nearly US$2,500. Cops learned of the alleged theft after staff at a nearby store “saw a woman take a shopping cart full of Stanley water bottles without paying for them,” and “refused to stop for staff and stuffed her car with the stolen merchandise.” An officer spotted the vehicle nearby, and the woman, who was not named, was arrested for grand theft. Cops wrote in a release: “While Stanley Quenchers are all the rage, we strongly advise against turning to crime to fulfill your hydration habits.

Ryan Gosling got an Oscar nomination for his role in “Barbie,” but Margot Robbie — was left out in the cold. The Academy Award nominations were announced yesterday, and Gosling is up for Best Supporting Actor — alongside Sterling K. Brown, Robert De Niro, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo. “Oppenheimer” leads with 13 nominations, followed by the Emma Stone-starring “Poor Things” with 11. “Killers of the Flower Moon” has 10 nominations, and last year’s biggest hit “Barbie” scored 8. In the Best Actress category, Annette Bening is up against Lily Gladstone, Sandra Hüller, Carey Mulligan and Emma Stone. For Best Actor, Bradley Cooper faces off against Colman Domingo, Paul Giamatti, Cillian Murphy, and Jeffrey Wright. The 96th annual Academy Awards will be held March 10, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

Oliver Stone has issued an apology to Ryan Gosling for blasting the actor for playing the role of ‘Ken’ in the wildly popular “Barbie” film. The legendary director posted a statement on X, praising the movie, after he accused Gosling of accepting the role of Barbie’s boyfriend solely for the money in a recently resurfaced 2023 interview. In his post on X, Stone wrote that he “was able to see Barbie in a theater back in July and appreciated the film for its originality and its themes”, adding: “I found the filmmakers’ approach certainly different than what I expected. I apologize for speaking ignorantly.”

Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy is best known for tattooing the A-list – from Rihanna to Justin Bieber and LeBron James. But now, he’s on a quest to turn tattoos into medical diagnostic devices, using “Magic Ink” — a tattooing ink which can be turned on or off by being exposed to light. He has joined forces with the professor at the University of Colorado who invented the ink. The duo believe that Magic Ink will eventually be used to warn people with diabetes about their blood sugar, or to alert people to slap on sunscreen. Magic Ink may also someday allow people to get tattoos that aren’t so permanent. McCurdy said: “You could get a patch of ink and you could change that picture inside your skin.”

You Lose Most of Your Heat from Your Head: Where your body loses heat is closely related to surface area, and the head has only about 9% of the body’s surface area. On the other hand, if the rest of you is all covered up and your head isn’t, then you DO lose most of your heat from your head…

To Warm Up, Sip Coffee or Brandy: Caffeine and alcohol actually hinder the body’s ability to produce heat, and can cause your core temperature to drop. Instead, drink warm water, or something with sugar.

If You Go Out in the Cold, You’ll Catch a Cold: You catch cold from a virus, not from cold temperatures.

Rub Your Fingers or Toes to Warm Them: Wiggle them instead. If exposed skin becomes cold, cover it with a warm hand until it feels better. Rubbing can cause tissue damage.

Try to Resist Shivering: Shivering means that your body is trying to warm up, and that’s good. In fact, shivering can triple your body’s heat production.

If I’m Feeling Cold, You Must Be Feeling It Too: Age, gender, fitness level and acclimatization all determine when you “feel” cold. And it’s been proven that women generally feel cold before men do, possibly because they have less heat-generating ability.
