If you just can’t seem to find the time to workout during the week – don’t sweat it (pardon the pun…)! Researchers from The Obesity Society found that squeezing in physical activity on weekends can be just as effective for losing weight as spreading out exercise across the work week. Their study of almost 10,000 adults found that both “weekend warriors” and those who get their exercise throughout the week showed significantly lower levels of abdominal and overall body fat compared to those who were inactive. The scientists did note, however, that the weekend warriors’ workout was of higher intensity and longer duration.

King Charles is honoring singer George Michael — a friend of his late wife Princess Diana. The monarch approved the use of an image of the ‘Faith’ singer on a new set of coins, alongside coins honoring the classic ‘James Bond’ film “The Spy Who Loved Me” and ‘Maid Marion’, from the historic “Robin Hood” story. The “Star Wars” franchise — which was first filmed in Elstree Studios in England — will also be honored through coins that feature the Death Star and Millennium Falcon, among other designs.


Timothée Chalamet revealed in 2022 that his “Don’t Look Up” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio once gave him brief but essential career advice: “No hard drugs and no superhero movies”, and it’s a path Chalamet has followed, despite his contemporaries signing up for Marvel and DC films in recent years. Is Chalamet still committed to DiCaprio’s advice? While on the press tour for “Dune: Part Two,” Chalamet said the door on starring in comic book movies is not completely shut. Chalamet said while he thinks the advice is solid, “The movie that made me want to act is a superhero movie, ‘The Dark Knight.’ If the script was great, if the director was great, I’d have to consider it.”

Harry Potter’ is set to return — to the small screen — in 2026. The first installment of the Harry Potter TV series is targeted to hit the Max streaming service in 2026, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said on the company’s earnings call. The series is expected to span 7 seasons, adapting each book in J.K. Rowling’s fantasy series. It will feature an all-new cast from the films.

Tyler Perry says he is “a little annoyed” by how long it’s taking to get “Sister Act 3” to the big screen. The actor and filmmaker told “Entertainment Tonight” that he and co-producer Whoopi Goldberg are anxious to finally kick off the project, which was first announced by Disney in late 2020. Perry pointed out that development on the film is taking so long that he has “done four movies since we started talking about this.” He also said that “Disney’s a huge, wonderful company, but I really want to get this movie and Whoopi really wants to get this movie.”

Music can make you feel less pain.

While temperatures have edged upwards over the last century, a so-called “warming hole” over the eastern US, where temperatures have plateaued or cooled, has bucked the trend – and we have trees to thank. Last week, a study attributed this anomaly to widespread reforestation efforts in the eastern states, which had been cleared by early European settlers. Indiana University researchers said: “Ground- and satellite-based observations showed that eastern United States forests cool the land surface by 1-2°C annually compared to nearby grasslands and croplands, with the strongest cooling effect during midday in the growing season, when cooling is 2-5°C”.

Most of the companies that participated in the world’s largest 4-day week trial are still operating a shorter working week a full year later, a new report shows. 61 organizations took part in the UK trial. Of those, 54 are still operating the policy (89%) and 31 have made the change permanent. When asked about the effects of a shorter working week, 82% of companies reported positive impacts on staff wellbeing, with half recording reduced staff turnover. Critics of the 4-day week have questioned whether the positive impacts reported in trials can be sustained long-term. But Juliet Schor, professor of sociology at Boston College, which led the trial, said the new research suggests that physical and mental health of workers continued to improve.

Rib cage: Thin skin, little to no fatty tissue between the skin and bones, and lots of nerve endings.

Face and neck: Relatively thin skin and lots of nerve endings. Even more painful on the lips.

Armpit: Rife with nerve endings, the area also has lymph nodes. This makes them very resistant to needle poking, and very, very sensitive.

Hands and fingers: Plenty of nerve endings here, and sensitive to touch.

Also: The outer arm, kneecap, calf, feet and ankles can be painful places to get ink. Not to mention the “unmentionable” places…
