Show Notes for Thursday, May 30, 2024


Dear John

I've been secretly dating my boyfriend for a few months. In the beginning, we both agreed to keep this relationship a secret until we knew it was going to work out. Now we've been together for almost a year, but we still have not told anyone. He is my brother's best friend. How do we finally tell my brother? Do we let him know we've been dating behind his back? Do we just pretend to start dating now? Please help. I think I might marry him, but neither one of us want to hurt my brother. What do we do?


Sister in Love

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A new study published in Classical and Quantum Gravity reveals that a group of scientists have discovered a loophole in Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, which seems to make faster-than-light travel achievable. It’s a long, technical explanation, but the researchers, from various institutions, say that it’s possible to create a “warp bubble” that compresses spacetime in front of a spaceship, and expands it behind, just like the warp drive on shows like “Star Trek”. The researchers showed mathematically that this “physical warp drive” obeys all the known energy conditions of general relativity.

Sean Baker’s romantic dramedy “Anora” scooped the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize, the Palme d’Or. It was Baker’s second time in the competition after 2021’s “Red Rocket”, and he said the accolade has been his “singular goal as a filmmaker for the past 30 years.” Anora stars Mikey Madison as a stripper from Brooklyn who transforms into a modern Cinderella when she meets the son of a Russian oligarch. Complications arise when his parents find out and try to get the marriage annulled.

It was a bit of a wasteland out there, as US theaters saw their slowest Memorial Day weekend in 29 years. “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” is projected to have opened well short of the industry’s prior estimates of $40 million over the 4-day window. The high-budget action epic was practically neck-and-neck for first place with the animated adaptation “The Garfield Movie” domestically. Latest projections have Garfield opening above $31 million over 4 days.

Sure, a voice assistant can be a handy thing to have, but would you play a subscription charge for one? It has been reported that Amazon plans to introduce a new AI-powered, “more conversational” version of Alexa – and will charge a monthly subscription fee. While there’s no word yet on what the monthly cost of the new services will be, a subscription to Alexa will not be included in its popular annual Prime offering, according to the report. Amazon introduced Alexa in 2014, but has not found a consistent means to make it profitable. The company said last year that it was working on a generative AI-powered version of Alexa, amid growing competition from chatbots made by OpenAI and Google.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

News broke last week of the inaugural flight of BARK Air. The first airline catering to dogs – and their owners, departed from New York and touched down in Los Angeles. One ticket on the sold-out flight cost $6,000, and included fare for one dog and one human companion. The airline, 10 years in the making, claims that “Every single detail of this flight experience has been crafted with a ‘dogs-first’ mindset.” Such as? It starts with a waiting lounge filled with treats — and a speedy check-in. Doggos were also given noise-canceling ear muffs and “calming” jackets to ensure a stress-free and enjoyable flight. BARK Air also offers an onboard spa for the pups, and a menu featuring “doggie champagne” and “barkaccinos.” Each flight includes a maximum of 10 dogs plus their humans, “to ensure you and your dog have enough room to spread out comfortably.” The company currently flies between New York, LA and London, but is considering expanding, after receiving 15,000 requests for new destinations.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


These statements, contrary to what you have probably been told, are all myths. Each will be followed by the facts…

Dark skin doesn’t need sunscreen/can’t get melanoma: Darker skin tones are less prone to skin cancer, but this can also mean signs of trouble are too often ignored.

A base tan protects you: A base tan is nature’s way of producing sun protection because you’ve been irradiated. But that doesn’t lessen your risk of skin cancer, and constant tanning ages your skin.

You don’t need to use sunscreen inside: All contact with sunlight requires protection, even exposure through an office or car window — and walking from building to building.

The number on sunscreen is proportionate to the number of minutes of sun protection: Nope. Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a measure of how much solar energy (UV radiation) is required to burn protected skin. SPF 15 allows 1/15 of harmful UVB rays to reach the skin. The remaining 14/15 means you’re protecting against 93% of UVB radiation. So, SPF 30 blocks 97% and SPF 50 prevents 98%.

The SPF in makeup is enough: It’s good enough to cover you when you’re walking from your car to work. But if you’re outside longer than 15 minutes, you need higher SPF and must reapply.

One application of sunscreen in the morning is good for the whole day: Reapplying is just as important as the first coat. Sunscreen gets consumed once the light hits it, which means you have to reapply regularly.

You don’t need sunscreen during off-peak hours: The sun’s rays can cause damage no matter what time it is. If you’re outside for longer than 15 minutes, use protection. You can get burned at 8am, as well as after 4 pm.

Sunscreen on your face, arms, back, and legs is enough: It’s a great start, but you should also apply it to the ears, nose, hands and the tops of your feet. And remember your scalp, especially if you have thinning or sparse hair.

Melanoma is only caused by sun exposure: It can strike without sun exposure, which makes regular skin checks important. Sun exposure does make the risk higher.
