SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

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. Wong. The franchise has amassed over $6 billion in combined box office revenue.

Come on, Barbie, let’s go…read. Margot Robbie’s stylist, Andrew Mukamal, has that he has collaborated with the “Barbie” actress on a $50 fashion book chronicling the hit movie’s press tour and its unforgettable style moments. “Barbie: The World Tour” will hit bookshelves on March 8, 2 days before Robbie hits the red carpet at the Academy Awards. However, the weekend excitement might not be what they are hoping for, as Robbie was snubbed for a Best Actress nod when the 2024 Oscars nominees were announced Tuesday.

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?”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A survey says that 1 in 9 men secretly wear makeup.

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:

A Reddit user posted the question “”What common product has a feature you’re not sure everyone is aware of?” The answers did not disappoint. Here are some of them . . .

☞ “Lifetime warranties on (things)…like Columbia jackets and Jansport backpacks. If your zipper fails or…is no longer repelling water, file a claim online…They will either repair it or ship you a comparable new version.”

☞ “Even though it’s only been a couple decades, I feel like people forget that you can just buy an HD antenna and watch local channels instead of needing cable/satellite.”

☞ “Netflix has a Fitness genre where you can watch and work out alongside videos.”

☞ “You can mute most modern microwaves.” (WHAAAA?????)

☞ “The iPhone has a plant identifier built in. Take a picture of a plant you want to identify. Pull up from the bottom, and there will be an option to ‘look up plant.’”

☞ “If you’re too far away from your car to lock/unlock it but need to…hold the key against your head and press the button. Your skull acts as a massive antenna…”

☞ “Each box of foil, plastic wrap, etc. has tabs on the ends that you push in to keep the roll in the box.”
