SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Does this sound familiar? You’re at a restaurant, checking out the menu and drooling over some of the food options. But then…just as you are about to order, you feel a twinge of guilt. What’s that about? Well, at least you’re not alone. A recent survey found that 67% of us feel guilty when eating out. In today’s economic climate, almost a quarter of us feel that spending money on a meal out is stressful. And 44% of them said that’s because of the amount of money spent. The survey, conducted among adults in the US, also found that people are getting creative with their dining choices, by doing things like using coupons and ordering meals that will give them enough to bring home leftovers. 77% said they feel adults should be allowed to order from the kids’ menu – but only one in 5 have been bold enough to do so. And among those who have tried to order from the kids’ menu, about one-third have been denied.

The door Kate Winslet infamously clung to at the end of “Titanic” has sold for a hefty price at auction. The slab of wood that played a role in Leonardo DiCaprio’s onscreen death sold for an impressive $718,750 during Heritage Auctions’ Treasures from Planet Hollywood event — making it the priciest item at the auction. The door — which is actually a doorframe, according to the auction’s notes — wasn’t the only “Titanic” memorabilia — the pale purple and pink chiffon dress Winslet wore as ‘Rose’ for most of the film’s sinking scene was also sold, for $125,000.


Cillian Murphy is headed back into the world of non-fiction. After winning a best actor Oscar for “Oppenheimer”, he has signed on to star in and produce “Blood Runs Coal”. The project is based on a book following the 1969 murder of mining union organizer Joseph “Jock” Yablonski, who was killed at home with his wife and daughter. That followed his campaigning against a corrupt union leader, and sparked a lengthy investigation that unveiled shady dealings within the coal industry. Murphy is also attached to work on a sequel trilogy to the 2002 zombie movie “28 Days Later”, and a ‘Peaky Blinders’ film.

Paging TV’s erstwhile Dr. Carter! Noah Wylie will star in and exec-produce a new medical drama for Max called “The Pitt”, and fellow “ER” vets John Wells and R. Scott Gemmill are also on board as EPs. The Pitt, which has received a 15-episode order, is described as “a realistic examination of the challenges facing healthcare workers in today’s America as seen through the lens of the frontline heroes working in a modern-day hospital in Pittsburgh.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Researchers are working to develop strong painkillers that don’t make you high.

Pierce Brosnan was fined and formally charged with walking outside of a restricted area at Yellowstone Park.

A new “exercise pill” could replace some — but not all — of the benefits of working out. Scientists from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis spent 10 years creating new compounds that seem to mimic the physical benefits of a workout — at least in rodent cells — that could become ingredients for a future supplement. The researchers hope to replicate the physical effects of exercise, including improved muscle performance, noting that if you are able to exercise, you should do just that, but there are many cases in which a person is unable to exercise, due to illness or genetic conditions.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Twenty domesticated parrots have been taught to play video games on iPads – using their tongues. The colorful birds were taught to play a touch-screen children’s game in an effort at staving off boredom for the bright birds. In a study aimed at enriching the parrots’ brains, they were stationed in front of a tablet and learned a game that had them tap circles with their tongues. Not only were they good at it, they appeared to enjoy it too. The study’s researchers, from Northeastern University, hope the findings will contribute to the development of parrot-specific video games that could boost the birds’ quality of life. LINK:
