SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Researchers at the Center for Microbiome Innovation at the University of California San Diego say they’ve discovered what actually causes wrinkles. It’s long been believed that wrinkles are simply part of the aging process — and exacerbated by UV light from the sun — but bacteria may actually be to blame. The scientists found that wrinkles are linked to the skin microbiome, which is the collection of microorganisms that inhabit our skin. This explains why the aging process is not uniform, and some people of the same age look older than others.

Just one month of feeling depressed can quickly lead to weight gain, says a new study. While the link between depression and weight gain has been recognized for some time, researchers in the UK say the specifics of how they affect each other have been unclear until now. The found that an individual whose depressive symptoms score increased from mild to moderate would typically see a weight gain of 225 grams (about half-a-pound) per month. They also found that those who are overweight or obese are more vulnerable to weight gain in response to feeling more depressed.


With Season 1 of Peacock’s “Ted” series out, Seth MacFarlane is leaving the future of the foul-mouthed teddy bear’s franchise in fans’ hands. While showrunners Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh are open to returning for more seasons to follow the character’s crazy adventures with a younger’ John Bennett’, the “Family Guy” creator said that any future “Ted” projects — whether that be more seasons of the Peacock series or even a third film — will depend on “audience appetite.” The showrunners have indicated that conversations are happening about Ted’s future, and “There’s plenty of room to explore.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Word has just come out that Apple is working on an “underwater user interface” that eventually could lead to a future waterproof version of its devices. Currently, the company’s best watch, the Apple Watch Ultra 2, can be used as a dive computer at depths of up to 40m, but iPhones, including the newest iPhone 15, remain merely “waterproof”. You can drop one in the bath, sink, or pool, and it should keep working, but it doesn’t have any kind of “underwater functionality”. The patent published this week, filed in 2021, indicates that an iPhone of the future could detect when it’s underwater, adjusting the user interface to display a simplified version of iOS that is easier to use…well…underwater. Apple says that more users are using their devices for water-based activities, and current methods for displaying user interfaces while a device is underwater are “outdated, time-consuming, and inefficient,” requiring multiple key presses or keystrokes.

A Buzzfeed writer asked: “What ‘small hill’ would you absolutely die on?” And the answers did not disappoint. Here are the best ones . . .

➢ “Boneless wings are just chicken nuggets.”

➢ “’First Annual.’ There is no such thing. I don’t care if you plan on doing it again, the first is always the inaugural event.”

➢ “I hate it when people say that something is ‘very unique.’ There are no degrees of uniqueness. Either something is unique, or it’s not. You can say it’s ‘very special,’ ‘very valuable,’ [or] ‘very different,’ but not ‘very unique.'”

➢ “As someone in the funeral industry, please either learn the difference between ‘interment’ and ‘internment’ — or stop getting mad at me when I correct your funeral programs.”

➢ “Grease 2 is the superior of the Grease movies. I said what I said.”

➢ “Pillsbury crescent rolls are revolting and I will not apologize for my beliefs.”

➢ “I hate when people use ‘infamous’ like it means ‘extra famous.’ It means you are famous for a bad reason and is typically not a good thing.”

➢ “Saying ‘should of’ instead of ‘should have’ and the like.” (How ‘bout “should’ve”?)

➢ “If you use the terms ‘conversate,’ ‘hubby,’ or ‘wifey,’ we will never be friends.”

➢ “My Favorite Things’ IS NOT A CHRISTMAS SONG!!!”
