When it comes to beating stress, dogs are great. Husbands? Not so much. Here’s the breakdown:

A new study from South Korea found that spending time with dogs can help reduce stress and improve concentration. Researchers determined that activities like playing with and walking dogs increased relaxation, while tasks like grooming boosted concentration. As far as mood, study participants also reported feeling less tired, sad and stressed after interacting with the dogs. Meanwhile…

A study published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine looked at data from more than 2,000 elderly couples to see how stress affected the pair’s health over time. Researchers found that women tended to display more negative physiological markers of stress than their male partners, suggesting that women’s health may be more affected by their partner’s stress levels in long-term relationships.

Teenagers have been scientifically confirmed to smell like…cheese and urine. Scientists in Germany have classified the chemical compounds that make us smell differently throughout our lives, starting with the ones that cause babies to smell like flowers, soap, and violet. But it’s all downhill from there: Puberty leads to the heightened presence of certain compounds that cause teenagers to give off scents of sweat, urine, sandalwood, cheese, goat, and wax (pretty much a typical locker room). The researchers got these results by sewing cotton pads into kids’ and teens’ pajama armpits, extracting the chemical compounds from the pads in the morning, and then having a trained smeller identify the scents.


Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have expanded their family! The couple, who married in 2015, announced the birth of their son Cardinal, in an Instagram post on Friday.

He is awesome and we are all so happy he is here! For the kids safety and privacy we won’t be posting any pictures- but he’s a really cute…” Diaz and Madden are also parents to daughter Raddix, who was born December 30, 2019. LINK:

Kevin Bacon is going to prom in the high school gym where he filmed his signature role. Friday, Bacon, whose iconic film Footloose recently celebrated its 40-year anniversary, appeared via video chat on the “Today” show, to surprise staff and students at Payson High School in Payson, Utah, with the news that he has accepted their viral campaign to visit the school where he shot the 1984 movie, to attend this year’s prom. To those gathered in the gymnasium, he said: “I’ve been amazed at the work that all of you have been putting into this, with the musical and the flash mobs and the re-creations… Thank you guys. Let’s dance.”

A new weight-loss pill made by the manufacturer of Ozempic and Wegovy helps patients shed weight twice as fast as the popular injections. Novo Nordisk says the pill, called Amycretin, works similarly to weight loss injections, mimicking a natural hormone, which slows down the passage of food through the stomach, making people feel full for longer. In addition, it stimulates a hormone called amylin, which also reduces hunger and slows stomach emptying. Early trials showed that people lost 13% of their weight over 3 months — more than twice the amount seen with Ozempic and Wegovy, the company claims.

A mullet-sporting motorcyclist whose license plate reads “WILL RUN” led police on a wild high-speed chase through several Florida cities, reaching a top speed of 145mph (233kph) — for the second time in a week. Aerial footage of the Tuesday incident shows the biker recklessly weaving in and out of highway traffic, blowing through red lights at crowded intersections and taunting the police officers on his tail. The high-speed chase kicked off when patrol officers tried to pull over 19-year-old Ashtin Jarvis after recognizing his unique plate. Cops had tried to pull him over days earlier, but the biker allegedly fled. He is facing multiple charges.
