SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

It’s not the working trend that I expected to see: Workers these days are putting in about 4 fewer hours per week than they were in 2021, on average. A new report by ActivTrak found that in the past 3 years, the average length of a workday fell by 15%, or 47 minutes. And our weekends are starting earlier: The average employee now clocks out of work on Fridays at 4:03pm, a full hour earlier than they did in 2021. The stats come from a study of 135,000 North American workers across almost 1,000 companies. And the best news? The overall efficiency of employees has remained flat, even as our workdays shrank by 47 minutes.

The University of Connecticut isn’t playing around this year. With both their men’s and women’s basketball teams in the Final Four, U of C isn’t taking any chances, and has removed all the light poles from campus in an effort at preventing celebratory damages. Last year, following the men’s team victory, light poles were torn down at the Storrs campus, and thrown through windows. A spokesperson said: “Given the prevalence of damage to the aluminum campus light poles along Fairfield Way last year, the University is temporarily removing them and has installed wall lights in that area.” Also, alcohol will reportedly not be served at the local Gampel Pavillion.


Catherine O’Hara and “WandaVision’s” Kathryn Hahn have joined a new comedy series from Seth Rogen titled “The Studio”. The pair will appear alongside Ike Barinholtz and Chase Sui Wonders in the show, which is, a parody of “a legacy Hollywood movie studio trying to survive in a world where it is increasingly difficult for art and commerce to live together.” The Studio, which Rogen will star in, co-write, co-direct and executive produce, will come to Apple TV+. No date has been announced.

Felicity Huffman has been cast as a ghost from the past in season 2 of “Criminal Minds: Evolution” on Paramount+.

Criminal Minds: Evolution is a continuation of the CBS series that ran from 2005-2020.

US authorities are looking into technology that would prevent a car from exceeding the speed limit.

It looks as though cowboy hats are going to be the hottest fashion accessory this summer, and depending on how you feel about that, you can either thank – or blame – BeyoncĂ©. According to those who know, the pop-star-turned country singer is adding momentum to a ten-gallon trend that was already in progress, thanks to the lids worn prominently in last summer’s “Barbie” movie. There has also been a spike in popularity of western-inspired designs on fashion runways, and in the men’s fall/winter 2024 line from Louis Vuitton. Now that BeyoncĂ© has released her highly-anticipated country album “Cowboy Carter”, the look is expected to become impossible to ignore. The “coastal cowgirl” aesthetic, featuring cowboy boots and linen garments, trended last summer as stylish riding boots became a wardrobe staple for some fashionistas. And when Queen Bey announced her new country album during the Super Bowl, Google searches for “cowboy hat” surged more than 212%. So, get set for a summer full of hats, boots, bolos and belts, as members of the Beyhive – enter the age of “cowgirl couture”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

OK – nerd alert – but this is pretty cool. It looks as though Apple Maps may soon customize the directions it gives you, based on the type of car you’re driving, among other things. Stay with me here… Yes, Apple Maps has long been the “poor little brother” of competitor Google Maps, but it has taken steps to enhance its app, and its latest patent filing indicates it may have plans to provide customized routes for those using the feature via CarPlay — based on the user’s vehicle and engine profile. For example, it could provide users with driving directions based on their fuel level. That way, the route could call for a stop at a gas station, if needed. Even cooler, if you were driving an electric vehicle, directions could be customized based on how far the EV can go before it needs a charge — and Apple Maps would make sure that the route includes a charging station along the way, of course.
