SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Of course, it’s pretty obvious that having tension in your relationship can be a stressful thing. But according to researchers at Binghamton University, there’s a connection between stress and having an unsupportive partner, too. And that could affect your health. In their study, the researchers found that wives who received support “more negatively” (e.g., rejecting help) felt less understood, validated and cared for by a partner, and that had a ‘stress-amplifying’ effect, meaning levels of the stress hormone cortisol increased. High levels cortisol can lead to increased risks of obesity, cancer, and heart disease, and accelerated aging of the immune system. On a happier note, those who said their partner showed positive support skills, showed lower stress levels and felt more understood, validated and cared for.

A homeowner in Florida got the surprise of a lifetime when police showed up at his door. In late March, delivery driver Richard Robertson, who was wanted on felony charges, was spotted by Titusville cops. After arresting the suspect, officers decided to fulfill his pending delivery order. Joe Neu posted ring camera footage of police appearing at his door. It shows an officer explaining: “Your driver got arrested, so we’re delivering your groceries.” Neu’s wife responds: “Wow, I haven’t had that before,” which makes the officer smile and say, “No, but we didn’t want your groceries to go to waste.” After 2 cops carry the groceries inside the home, the resident is heard joking: “I’ll make sure you get his tip.” LINK:

To combat the growing problem of shoplifting, an Australian supermarket chain is putting GPS locators…on meat. Drakes has become so exasperated with meat theft that it is conducting a trial where cuts of expensive meat are put into transparent cases fitted with GPS locators that allow the product to be tracked. The polpolycarbonate cases are usually used to prevent theft of high-priced items in supermarkets, but Drakes is the first in Australia to use them on meat. The store says it is only using the GPS locators on meat that costs $50-$100 per kilo, “the highest-end meat” they offer. Drakes believes that its expensive meat is often targeted by criminals, who sell it for drugs and other goods.
