Air pollution is making people lazier. Scientists in the UK found that long-term exposure to current levels of air pollution led to an increase in time spent being inactive each day. The researchers said: “We’re already aware that air pollution contributes to…respiratory diseases…What’s concerning is that air pollution might also be affecting people’s willingness or ability to exercise, and their enjoyment of it.” They determined that current pollution levels are causing an extra 22 minutes of inactivity each day per person.

Doritos Dinamita has a major star on board for its 2024 Super Bowl commercial — but we don’t know who it is yet. The spicy chip line shared a mysterious picture of its unrevealed spokesperson, which shows the celeb holding a bag of Doritos with their back turned to the camera, obscuring their face. Frito-Lay describes its spokesperson as an “icon,” but that’s all we know so far. The celeb will star in Doritos’ first-ever Dinamita-focused Super Bowl ad. Doritos has advertised during the big game for 23 years. The 2024 Super Bowl takes place Sunday, Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.


Despite the fact that she was upset by an insult against her in “Mean Girls”, Lindsay Lohan probably doesn’t regret making an appearance in the musical. Why? Money. The 37-year-old “Falling for Christmas” star makes a small but poignant cameo in the film, but she was paid a hefty sum for working just half a day. Sources told Variety Lohan raked in $500,000 for her quick appearance in the Tina Fey movie. Lohan starred as ‘Cady Heron’ in the original 2004 teen flick.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Kathleen Murray of Tasmania, Australia has the “World’s Ugliest Lawn”, according to competition organizers in Sweden. Reps for Gotland said that Murray’s lawn “boasts deep, dry divots created by 3 wild bandicoots (small marsupials endemic to Australia) and not one dust-covered decimeter is wasted on watering.” People from around the world were invited to post pics of their dehydrated grass in an effort at scooping the dubious accolade. The intention was to raise awareness of “saving water on a global scale by changing the norm for green lawns.” Contest officials added: “The planet, and its dwindling stockpiles of life-giving liquid, thank you, Kathleen, as well as those naughty, naughty bandicoots pockmarking your property for the greater good.” LINK:

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Talk about putting your money where your mouth is. An Austrian heiress believes her government doesn’t tax the wealthy enough, so she’s decided to ask regular citizens to help her give away 25 million euros – or about US$27 million of her inheritance. To find a panel of trusted advisors, 31-year-old Marlene Engelhorn sent a survey to 10,000 randomly-selected Austrians. From the respondents, she’ll select 50 to help her divvy out the dough. Where did she get the $27 million? She is a descendant of Friedrich Engelhorn, who founded the German pharmaceutical giant BASF, and she inherited a fortune when her grandmother died in 2022. On the project’s website, she wrote that her wealth “was accumulated because other people did the work”. Austria has no estate, inheritance, or wealth taxes. LINK:

THE LIST: Brought to you by


If one of your goals for 2024 is to hit the gym and become more fit, you may be thinking of what supplements you should be taking in order to help. Supplements aren’t necessary if you’re already getting all the nutrients you need through food, but these are the ones you should invest in if you need them…

Whey protein: Protein is a macronutrient required for everyone, no matter if they have a fitness goal or not. It is effective for muscle recovery and for building muscle.

Creatine monohydrate: Creatine is one of the few powdered supplements that have been thoroughly researched and proven to work. It’s known to help improve strength, power, and muscle mass in health and exercise performance.

Caffeine: Besides giving you an energy boost, caffeine also helps improve your workout performance. If you’re healthy, 400 milligrams is the daily safe maximum limit. A typical caffeine dose is around 200 milligrams, preworkout. (I prefer to get mine the natural way: By eating a few K-cups!)

L-citrulline: Citrulline is a nonessential amino acid created by the body, which helps provide energy, and helps with recovery. It’s also good for your blood pressure.

Beta-alanine: It’s a nonessential amino acid produced by our bodies that also helps aid in the production of carnosine. Carnosine helps the muscles work harder and longer before they become fatigued, by reducing lactic acid.
