Yes, spring-cleaning is definitely a drag, but let’s not get carried away. Would you trade going on your yearly vacation to get out of spring-cleaning? One in 5 parents would, according to a new survey. 2,000 parent homeowners in the US with kids under 17 were asked about the tedious work that comes with the arrival of nicer weather, and it turns out that this season isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. 83% agreed that spring is the most difficult season to keep their homes clean. More than half (54%) said that they need to give up spending quality time with their kids because of their spring-cleaning commitments. And 43% said their child has complained because of the amount of time their parents are busy cleaning.

Katy Perry thinks a female should replace her on “American Idol”. The singer previously suggested that country singer Jelly Roll should be her replacement, but on reflection, Perry feels that there should always be a female voice on the Idol panel. Perry, who starred alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, said that if Jelly were to be next in her role, “That would be too many men, let’s be honest.” She also stressed that her replacement needs to be someone who is “honest and bold, not scared of negative comments”. She did point out, however that “we love Jelly Roll, and I’d love for him to be on this show whenever it’s appropriate.”

HBO has handed out a straight-to-series order of 10 episodes for the series, which had been the focus of a multiple-platform bidding war.

The world’s largest plant designed to suck planet-heating pollution out of the atmosphere like a giant vacuum began operating in Iceland last week. “Mammoth” is the country’s second commercial direct air capture plant opened by Swiss company Climeworks, and is 10 times bigger than its predecessor, Orca, which started running in 2021. Direct air capture is a technology designed to suck in air and strip out the carbon, using chemicals. The carbon can then be injected deep underground, reused, or transformed into solid products. What’s more, the whole operation is powered by Iceland’s abundant, clean geothermal energy.

A study once found that when it comes to listening to and enjoying new music, the average person hits “taste freeze” at age 33. That’s when most people stop listening to top 40 hits. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you don’t enjoy music beyond that age. Nor does it necessarily mean that you only enjoy the “oldies”. What happens, according to data assembled by Spotify, is that musical tastes diversify around age 33. Some discover alternative music, classical music, world music, or jazz. They also tend to follow new songs by the aging pop stars of their youth, but when it comes to younger artists…not so much. While ‘taste freeze’ has probably always existed, music streaming seems to have enhanced it…and Spotify gave it a name.

A report claims that coffee loses 70% of its flavor within 2 minutes of being brewed.

Another reason to sound the alarm bells regarding Artificial Intelligence: AI systems these days are becoming increasingly sophisticated. How sophisticated? A report by the Center for AI Safety in San Francisco warns that with engineers and developers working to make AI as “human” as possible, some systems are now capable of telling lies. The research team wrote in its report that “Large language models and other AI systems have already learned, from their training, the ability to deceive via techniques such as manipulation, sycophancy, and cheating the safety test.” This poses short-term “risks such as fraud and election tampering, to long-term risks, such as losing control of AI systems.” In one example, the AI system CICERO, developed by Meta to play the strategy game Diplomacy, turned out to be an expert liar — despite its creators’ efforts to make it honest and helpful. It was found to “make alliances with human players, only to betray them later, in pursuit of victory.” Another system learned to cheat on tests designed to prevent it from engaging in harmful financial behaviors. Even more scary, just like a student might only behave when the teacher is watching, it learned to “play dead” during evaluation, only to pursue its own goals once it was no longer under scrutiny.

According to a consultation of 8 safety guides…

First Aid Kit: Accidents happen, and having basic medical supplies on hand can help you address minor injuries or provide temporary relief until professional help arrives.

Phone Charger and Battery Charger: A working cell phone is vital during emergencies. A phone charger ensures your device stays powered up, and a portable charger could recharge your phone if you’re unable to access a power outlet.

Flashlight: A reliable flashlight can be a lifesaver during nighttime emergencies, or when you need to inspect your car in low light conditions.

Jumper Cables: Whether your own battery is drained, or you need to come to the aid of another driver in need, jumper cables can help you get back on the road quickly.

Spare Tire: A flat tire can happen anytime, anywhere, so it’s essential to have a spare — and the necessary tools to change it. Regularly check your spare tire’s condition and inflation.

Blanket: In cold weather or emergency situations, a blanket can provide warmth and comfort until help arrives.

Water and Non-Perishable Snacks: Staying hydrated and nourished is essential during unexpected delays or emergencies. Keep a supply of bottled water and snacks, such as granola bars or nuts, in your car.

Show Notes for Thursday, May 23, 2024


Dear John,

My husband and I are expecting our first baby, and it's also the first grandchild in the family for both sets of parents. We have decided that if it's a boy, he will be named after my husband's grandfather. he was very close to him and he died three years ago. My in-laws have been kind of strange about it. They are very religious and have told us they have their whole church praying that we will have a boy, and have asked us to attend prayers and rituals with them. I didn't like that, but went along with it just to avoid a problem. Well, we found out we were having a girl. My husband took it very hard. He cried in the car, then turned his phone off to hide from his family. He finally told them and they all made their disappointment quite clear. This bugged me, because my daughter deserves to be celebrated. A couple of weeks later, they started coming to visit but they kept referring to our child as our "son", claiming the results were false because they have faith. I had several fights with them but they kept it up, and my husband sided with them. Well, my Sister-In-Law called to inform me she had arranged a baby shower. I get along with her very well and was very happy about it. But when I arrived, the room was decorated with blue balloons, and blue cake with grandpa's name in the decorations everywhere. My Sister-in-Law explained they were ‘still’ hoping the gender results are false and it’s a boy. I looked at my husband and he agreed with her. I lost my temper and yelled at them all. I told them they were delusional and to stop treating my daughter like she was unwanted. And to throw a party right instead of for an imaginary grandson. My Mother-in-Law started crying, I took my bag and walked out. My husband followed me outside and told me I insulted him and his family. He said it was disrespectful to the memory of his grandfather and I needed to come in and apologize. I told him to wake up and see the insanity He said I need to suck it up and play along. He said they need some time to get over the shock that it's not a boy. I said absolutely not and demanded he take me home. He said no, so I got a ride; He called 15 times, then texted that he wouldn’t be home until I come over and apologize for ruining everything they've done for me. Then he suggested I was mentally unstable. I sent one response and said, "Then I guess you aren't coming home". He didn't. And still hasn't. We haven't spoken or texted since this weekend. So what's my next move? This has to stop, and I think I'm okay ending my marriage over it. But is that short-sighted? What should I do?

What’s the first thing you do when you awaken in the morning? Check your phone? Grab a quick breakfast? Bad ideas, both. A neuroscientist is warning about the things you should avoid doing, in order to protect your brain. And those include checking your phone as soon as you wake up. Emily McDonald (who posts brain-health advice on Instagram) says her tips can help prevent things like brain fog and forgetfulness. The mindset coach recommends we wait at least 20 minutes after getting up in the morning before reaching for the phone. Why? This is the time that the “brain is transitioning between sleep and waking” … when “our brain is really suggestible”. She cautions that if you read “stressful things” at this time, it prompts “you to be stressed”. And the same rule applies at night. Try to switch off the TV, laptop and phone well ahead of bed. Also, avoid processed food such as cheese slices and chips, which can also have a negative impact on the brain, leading to cognitive aging. Instead, reach for whole foods and good fats, such as avocados and blueberries.

Ben Affleck appears to have returned to his broody self. He reunited with wife Jennifer Lopez on Sunday amid rumors they are headed for divorce. The pair attended a movie event at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, then made their way to Soho House, a private members club. J-Lo looked chic in a pair of slacks and a turtleneck sweater, covered with a long trench coat. But Ben, being Ben, opted for his signature look of jeans, sneakers and a Boston-themed T-shirt. Notably, Affleck was wearing his wedding band, which had been absent in recent days, including while attending his child’s school play on Friday.

You’ve heard of the buzzword “FOMO”, the Fear Of Missing Out. Now comes “FOPO”. Experts say the Fear Of People’s Opinions is becoming more and more common these days. It’s a concept named by psychologist Michael Gervais who also authored a book on the topic. Gervais says that today’s society centers other people’s opinions, making them hard to ignore ― and the fear of them can hold you back from your full potential. Those who know, say that something as innocent as pretending you’ve seen a movie that you’ve never actually watched, or scrolling your phone in an attempt at appearing busy are both signs of FOPO. You may also fall into the FOPO trap if you tend to panic about a text message that reads “OK,” or if you study your friend’s face for negative reactions to a funny story. Gervais feels that FOPO is “a pre-emptive process to increase our acceptance in the eyes of others and…to avoid rejection…and what we end up doing is we scan our world for approval.”

Riley Keough is challenging the “fraudulent” sale of her grandfather Elvis Presley’s iconic Graceland home ahead of a foreclosure auction. A temporary restraining order halting the sale of the Memphis estate was granted, just days before it was set to be auctioned today. Earlier this month, it was revealed the late King of Rock and Roll’s beloved residence would be sold to the highest bidder after previous owner, Lisa Marie Presley, allegedly failed to repay a $3.8 million loan taken out in 2018, before her death. But a lawsuit filed by Keough argues her mother never took out a loan, and the documents are false.

According to “experts” (Where do I apply to become an “expert” on this?)…

1. Never Have I Ever: Use ‘Never have I ever’ as a prefix to a sentence for something you’ve never done, and everyone who has done it has to take a sip.

2. Straight Face: Players write ridiculous or inappropriate sentences on pieces of paper. One at a time, each player chooses a slip of paper and attempts to read it without giggling or cracking a smile. If they fail, they drink.

3. Beer Pong: You know how it works. It’s not that complicated!

4. Flip Cup: Simply down your drink as quickly as possible, place it on the edge of the table, and hit its base as many times as it takes in order to ‘flip’ it so it lands face down. The first to complete a whole row of cups is the winner.

5. King’s Cup: Lay out a deck of cards face down, in a circle around a central cup. That’s the King’s Cup. Players take turns picking a card from the circle – each card has a different rule for making people drink. Best enjoyed with a large number of players – so you don’t incapacitate yourself too quickly!

Does a full moon really cause people to act strangely? No, according to a 2019 study by New York University. Researchers collaborated with the Vallejo, California police department to determine if “The lunar effect” is real. They found no significant uptick in reported crimes or arrests during nights when the moon is full. When other police departments heard about the study, they wanted an investigation of their own data. Similar sets of research with the Barrie, Ontario Police Force in Canada and the Irapuato Citizen Safety Secretariat in Mexico also showed no uptick in crime during full moon events.

A sequel to Amazon’s “Road House” movie is in the works, with Jake Gyllenhaal reprising his lead role as ‘Dalton’. While Amazon is keeping quiet on any other details for now, it did report that the first film has attracted nearly 80 million worldwide viewers to-date, after premiering on Prime Video March 21 — and attracting a record-breaking 50 million-plus viewers over its first 2 weekends.

Anticipation has been high for Furiosa, which launches in North America on May 24.

Highway: Can be one lane in each direction or several lanes in each direction, with varying speeds, and can stretch across a single state or multiple states. May have stop signs or traffic signals, and even railroad crossings. Doesn’t necessarily have high speed limits.

Freeway: These are in heavily populated regions and big cities, and are always fast-moving, with multiple lanes in both directions. Ramps and exits are the only access points, meaning there is no interruption in the flow of traffic. Can be entirely in one state, or go through several.

Expressway: Much like a freeway, expressways actually connect other highways or freeways within the same city or metro area. May have tolls and they often have carpool lanes.
