SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Families are getting smaller, and experts say that’s not going to change anytime soon. A new study by German researchers is revealing a significant transformation in family dynamics – and it points to a steep decline in the number of relatives the average person will have in the near future. And they say that this will alter the structure of families, leading to fewer younger relatives — like cousins, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren, while the number of older relatives, like grandparents and great-grandparents, will rise. The international study analyzed historical and projected data from the United Nations. The researchers say they found that in 1950, a 65-year-old woman had, on average, 41 living relatives. By 2095, this number is expected to drop to just 25. The problem? Smaller families mean fewer younger relatives to provide care for the older generation.

The experts are telling us that men and women have different immune responses to seasonal illnesses – it basically concluded that the “man cold” is a real thing. Now comes this: researchers are telling us that men and women have different responses to – jokes, as well. A study carried out by Oxford University found that men tend to rate visual and slapstick jokes more highly than women do, while women tend to prefer jokes that involve relationship dynamics. Both sexes clearly considered jokes that deploy puns and wordplay funnier than any other presented topic. And both men and women were least enthusiastic about political jokes.


The long-awaited expansion of “The Office” universe appears to be getting closer to becoming a reality. Greg Daniels, who adapted NBC‘s The Office for American audiences based on the hit BBC series, is setting up a development room with his trusted writers, sources say. The potential new series, which is not a reboot, would likely be set in a new office with new characters, but live within the same “universe” as the Steve Carell-led mockumentary series, which followed employees at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.

So, how about those New Year’s resolutions? Or should I say…do you remember your New Year’s resolutions? Here’s a friendly reminder that stats show 80% of people who made New Year’s resolutions have tapped out by the second week of January. But on the other hand, if your resolution was to…say…lose weight THIS YEAR, you’ve still got plenty of time to do it. Michael Hamlin is a personal trainer and founder of EverFlex Fitness. He points out that while a healthy diet is essential, you can help things along by incorporating these enjoyable methods of burning more calories without ever having to set foot in a gym.

1. Laugh more: Laughing for just 10-15 minutes a day can burn up to 40 calories. When you laugh, your body’s muscles contract and expand, which increases your heart rate and oxygen consumption.

2. Park further away from your destination: Small habits add up. You could also try getting off the subway or bus a stop earlier than you need to. This will help you get extra steps in, and make feel invigorated when you arrive at work.

3. Walk after meals: Instead of sitting down, try lacing up your shoes for a brisk walk. It’ll lower the post-meal blood sugar spike, and help you use up that energy right away.

4. Do some chores: Vacuuming for 30 minutes can burn 99-166 calories, depending on your weight. Mowing the lawn for 30 minutes can burn up to 200 calories.

5. Pace around the house: Take a stroll around your apartment, office or even around town if you arrive early to meet a friend. It helps get extra steps in, keeps body heat high, and can help keep joints in the lower extremities from stiffening.

6. Do some deep breathing: Believe it or not, taking 4-5 slow, deep breaths before you eat can have a significant impact on the body’s ability to burn calories versus storing them.

7. Take cold showers: If you can handle it, do it. This causes the body to burn calories in order to generate heat and maintain your body’s core temperature.

8. Do calf raises while you cook: Simply stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart and then move to your tippy-toes, and slowly lower yourself back down to the floor.

9. Get enough sleep: During sleep, the body goes into repair and recovery mode. It also equals better hormone function, making you less likely to overeat.

10. Set a daily step goal on your smartwatch: Do this to remind yourself when it’s time to get up and walk throughout the day. Doing it a few times will add up to additional steps – and the burning of more calories.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

It just might be the next big thing – a nightclub that is only open in the daytime. British actress Vicky McClure and husband Jonny Owen say they came up with the idea for a “day club” …or a night club that’s open during the day, then shuts early…so you can grab a bite, then catch the train home in time to catch some Saturday night TV. As a nod to the Bee Gees’ party classic ‘Night Fever’, the all-day discos are called “Day Fever”, and are aimed at “people of a certain age” – the over-30 crowd. Doors open at 2pm, last entry is at 4pm, and party-goers are asked to be polite and to dress smartly like they used to when they went on a night out clubbing. Following a successful daytime disco in Sheffield, more have been scheduled in London, Nottingham and south Wales, and the organizers plan to take their drop-in disco to towns and cities across the UK. And as Owen points out, the big advantages to daytime clubbing are “being home early enough for Match of the Day – and it also doesn’t ruin your Sunday.”
