SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

They say it takes a village to raise a child – and it’s not far from the truth. A new survey found the average working parent relies on 6 different people to support their child’s growth and development. The survey of 2,000 parents of children under the age of 10 found that family members such as their child’s grandparents (46%), extended family such as aunts, uncles and cousins (27%) and siblings (26%) are included in their “village,” as well as their best friend (17%) and neighbors (8%). In addition, parents also look to their child’s teachers (47%) and the staff at their child’s school or daycare (33%) for support.

A smile really can brighten everyone’s day. Researchers from the University of Essex found that when someone smiles, even for just a split-second, it actually makes others more likely to see happiness in an otherwise expressionless face. The groundbreaking work was possible thanks to the use of electrical stimulation. A painless current served to manipulate participants’ muscles into momentary action, resulting in a brief uncontrollable smile. The team determined that even a weak grin helps make faces appear more joyful. The researchers hope their study can jumpstart further exploration of potential treatments for depression or disorders that affect expression, such as Parkinson’s and autism.


Spider-Man 3” villain Thomas Haden Church believes another Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi team-up is on the horizon. Known for portraying escaped prisoner ‘Flint Marko’, who transforms into the ‘Sandman’, Church offered his thoughts on the future of Maguire’s Spidey during a ComicBook interview. According to him, there have “been some rumors” he might be asked to “do another Spider-Man”, and he says he’d “do it tomorrow”. Following the disappointing fan reaction to Spider-Man 3 in 2007, a 4th film was shelved, but Church did reprise his role in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in 2021.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Hugging and or holding hands with the person you love has been proven to reduce stress almost instantly.

Yes, the Stanley tumbler is currently just about the hottest status symbol out there, as health-conscious young adults aim for the coolest way to stay hydrated. But even though some of the main selling points of the 40-oz Stanley cup are the side handle and straw, some TikTok users are warning against using it too often…because lip wrinkles. Also known as “lip lines”, “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines”, lip wrinkles are vertical furrows that develop above the upper lip. But can you really get lip wrinkles from repeatedly using a straw? In a word: Yes. American Society of Plastic Surgeons member surgeon Dr. Lara L. Devgan clarifies that both straws and smoking are the big culprits of lip wrinkles. But any repeated action that involves the pursing of the lips, such as making a “duck” face to take selfies, applying makeup, and exposure to the sun can have the same effect. To avoid potential lip lines, some TikTokkers have been purchasing an “anti-wrinkle” straw for their Stanley cups. It allows users to avoid repeatedly pursing their lips as they drink, by providing what amounts to a hole on the shaft of the straw, rather than on the end. LINK:
