SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Recent research says the secret to succeeding at a fitness goal might be…having a supportive friend. A Berkeley University study found that those who paired their workouts with a pal were more likely to show up and pump up, than those who plan to exercise solo. The research team concluded that 2 benefits made the buddy system more bankable. First, people enjoyed the social aspect of going to the gym with a friend, making it something to look forward to. Second, meeting a friend at the gym gave those participants a sense of accountability that led to consistent follow-through.

Gisele Bündchen is reportedly “deeply disappointed” by the jokes made about her ill-fated marriage to Tom Brady during the ex-quarterback’s Netflix roast on Sunday. The Brazilian model, who divorced the 7-time Super Bowl champ in 2022, found herself to be the butt of several jokes during the proceedings, and People is reporting that she is aghast at the disrespectful portrayal of her family. Among the barbs sent her way, host Kevin Hart took aim at Bündchen and her jiu-jitsu trainer boyfriend Joaquim Valente.

Tracy Morgan will star in a new Paramount+ comedy series that is set in the same world as the CBS show “The Neighborhood”. In the half-hour comedy, titled “Crutch,” Morgan will play ‘Frank Crutchfield’, or ‘Crutch’, a “Harlem widower whose empty-nest plans are put on hold after his millennial son and free-spirited daughter move back home.” The Neighborhood star and executive producer Cedric the Entertainer will executive produce. Production will begin later this year.

DC Studios has finally revealed the first official look at David Corenswet as the new Man of Steel in an updated “Superman” suit for the upcoming film. Writer-director James Gunn’s movie is currently in production. While the new Superman logo had already been revealed, with the production experiencing a first-look leak of the character ‘The Engineer’, DC decided to beat the paparazzi at their own game, and released the new pic of the superhero’s uniform to Gunn’s Threads account. “Superman” will hit theaters in July 2025.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The rich have yachts, but the ultra-rich will soon have yachts that can disappear underwater at the first sign of trouble. An Austrian company is developing a 540-foot (165m) “submersible superyacht” that can stay underwater for about a month. Migaloo says its “M5” is for yacht owners who are “looking for privacy, security, and protection…or for the fulfillment of unique experiences (or) scientific desires, as well as for the greatest possible exclusivity.” Features aboard the submersible yacht will include LED exterior lighting with a laser show, a helipad, a hot-air balloon, and – because why not? — an underwater shark-feeding station. That’s in addition to the run-of-the-mill accessories that any mega-yacht owner might expect, like a spa, gym, gaming room, wine cellar, art gallery and a panic room. It is expected to be able to house up to 20 guests, plus about 40 staffers(!). The company is playing coy about the price, but did say that there are probably only 50 people in the world who could afford to buy one.

It’s the latest vacation trend, and it’s one that I’m sure we could all use. Taking a “sleepcation” is a getaway that takes the opposite approach to a traditional vacation where you might run yourself ragged trying to hit every amazing attraction you’ve seen on TikTok, and pack in a pile of enriching activities at the same time. And what, exactly, is a sleepcation? It can be as simple taking a vacation with the intention to get a good night — or a few good nights — of sleep. That could involve checking into a hotel in your own city, one with a special sleep package that includes enhanced ways to get a great night of sleep ― like a fancy bed, blackout curtains, sound machines or some sleep-enhancing supplements. Or, you could book yourself into a full-on sleep retreat, where experts can help guide your physical and mental wellness to make sure you leave feeling renewed, refreshed and relaxed.

A coffee shop in the UK has decided to only serve customers who bring their own, reusable cup to the store. Not only that, but to illustrate the problem with disposable cups, they literally filled the store floor with them, making the customer area almost impassable. Otto’s Coffee House & Kitchen in Kent is hoping its new policy will inspire other coffee shops around the world to follow suit. LINK:

THE LIST: Brought to you by


According to a consultation with 10 “expert” websites…

1. “Casablanca” (1942): It has not only improved with age, it boasts career-defining performances from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

2. “Schindler’s List” (1993): Featuring notable performances by Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, it is often considered one of the most accurate and brutal depictions of Holocaust atrocities in film.

3. “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991): While maybe not the most cinematic movie, it is a wonderfully scripted and acted mystery, headlined by Oscar-winning performances from Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins.

4. “The Godfather” Part I (1972) and II (1974): The experts couldn’t quite decide which part of the famous trilogy is better, but they are a package deal anyway. With violence, betrayal, drama, Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, the sprawling gangster epic features what’s possibly the greatest cast ever assembled.

5. “On the Waterfront” (1954) and “All About Eve” (1950) [Tie]: The 2 films received the same amount of positive expert mentions. All About Eve is “a smart, sophisticated, and devastatingly funny Hollywood classic that only improves with age”, while On the Waterfront is undeniably moving, featuring “A fleet of good performances” in its tale about a decent man (Marlon Brando) who stands up to corruption.
