SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A University of Texas study found that young women (and men) who wore high heels for several months began walking differently – in a good way. Contrary to widespread beliefs about wearing heels, those in the study were found to become better, more-efficient walkers – not only when wearing heels, but also in flats. The researchers believe that high heels could be used as a “training tool” for those with mobility issues, or for athletes or others who wish to be able to move faster and with more ease. Some test subjects, however, also complained of “squished toes”, and were found to have shorter calf muscles and stiffer Achilles tendons.

Now that we’ve recovered from the shock of that (unfounded) rumor that Gmail was supposedly shutting down this summer, comes the next email shocker: Is Elon Musk really planning to take on Gmail with the launch of “Xmail”? Maybe. In a post on X (formerly Twitter, which he owns), Musk replied to a question tweeted by X security engineer Nate McGrady, that asked when the company would be developing Xmail. Musk responded with 2 words: “It’s coming”. While this could simply be a ‘trial balloon’ on Musk’s part, simply to judge what the reaction will be, it should also be noted that there are already at least 3 existing email services already in existence by the name of Xmail. But it should also be noted that Musk would probably have no problem coming up with the funds needed to buy the rights to the name.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced some of the stars who will take the stage to hand out Oscars on Hollywood’s biggest night. Those include past Oscar winners like Mahershala Ali, Brendan Fraser, Matthew McConaughey, Ke Huy Quan, and Michelle Yeoh, as well as Hollywood legends like Nicolas Cage, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jessica Lange, Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer. Also on the list of presenters are Sam Rockwell, Lupita Nyong’o, and Zendaya. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 96th Oscars will air live on ABC on March 10.

After months of speculation, it’s official: Ryan Gosling will perform ‘I’m Just Ken’ at the Oscars. Variety reports that Gosling will sing the Academy Award-nominated song from “Barbie” during the 96th annual ceremony on March 10. Whether he would agree to show off his singing chops on the Oscars stage has been a big question ever since both Gosling and the song picked up nods in January. Earlier, Gosling said that while the Academy hadn’t yet asked him to perform, despite the fact that “might be too much of a risk” to have him do it, Gosling said he’s “open to it.”

Alec Baldwin’s trial for the “Rust” shooting has been scheduled for this summer. Court proceedings for the actor’s manslaughter trial are scheduled to begin with jury selection, on July 9. The trial kicks off the next day, and New Mexico officials say it is expected to last 9 days. This will be the second time Baldwin has been accused of manslaughter by the state. The first time, charges were dropped, but in the months since, more evidence has surfaced, which prosecutors say implicates him.

Wendy’s has now said it has no plans to raise menu prices at times of peak demand, after the burger chain was scorched on social media for comments its CEO made, suggesting the chain may start testing “dynamic pricing” The Burger chain Wendy’s plans to test having the prices of its food fluctuate throughout the day, based on demand. During a conference call earlier this month, Wendy’s CEO Kirk Tanner said the restaurant will start testing ‘dynamic pricing’, also known as ‘surge pricing’, as early as next year. The pricing strategy, which raises costs to consumers according to demand, has already taken hold with ride-sharing companies and ticket sellers.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

It actually happened. “The Florida Man Games” took place over the weekend. Promoted as “the most insane athletic showdown on Earth,” the Florida Man Games came about thanks to the state’s reputation for bizarre news stories that involve brawling, drinking, gunfire – and often alligators. 5,000 spectators sipping beer from behind metal barricades cheered as a dozen teams of men in tank tops and cutoffs battled in contests inspired by real “Florida man” headlines. James Gordon of DeLand won the first event, wolfing down a plate loaded with barbecue pork and sausage, a fraction of a second before his nearest competitor. He chugged a beer to celebrate. In his post-competition interview, he said: “I’ve lived in Florida my whole life. They’re calling these ‘events.’ I’m calling this [BLEEP] Tuesday afternoon.” Other events involved contenders wrestling sumo-style while holding pitchers of beer, and running from actual sheriff’s deputies while jumping fences and avoiding obstacles.

This is according to a panel of “experts”

1. Water: The natural results of rehydration might surprise you. Research has shown a link between chronic dehydration and worsening headaches and migraines.

2. More Sleep: Actually, both insufficient and excessive sleep can contribute to headaches. Improve your overall sleep quality to potentially reduce headaches. This includes creating a cool, dark sleep environment, and avoiding screen time when you’re there.

3. Massage: Do you feel a tightness in your neck and shoulders alongside your headache? Professional massages, massage balls, and applying heat can all provide relief from tension headaches.

4. Essential Oils: A growing body of evidence suggests they might offer relief. Lavender oil is said to be good for reducing tension headaches and migraines. Try diffusing the oil or applying it directly to fabrics. (I’m pretty sure that’s what’s GIVING me a headache!)

5. Exercise: There’s growing evidence of a link between exercise and reduced headache frequency and severity. Increased physical activity, even through simple steps like walking more, can be beneficial.
