SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

If you’re starting to feel like “what’s cool, just isn’t cool anymore”, don’t worry – because about half of us admit we feel “out of touch” with what’s in and what’s out these days. A survey looked at how confident American adults feel when it comes to keeping up with popular culture, and it was determined that the age in which we can generally expect to feel out-of-touch is … 39. The good news is this: When it comes to what adults still DO feel in touch about, 72% felt that way about food, and 60% felt that way about newer music. Six in 10 feel similarly “hip” about social media, while movies (55%) and the latest in tech (49%) also inspire confidence. Modern slang? 40% felt out of touch on that. And 35% admitted they can’t seem to keep track of the latest celebrities these days.

A Texas man reclaimed his Guinness World Record — by going skydiving at the age of 106 years (and 327 days). Al Blaschke first earned the title of the oldest person to tandem skydive when he jumped out of a plane at age 103 in 2020, but his record was broken by a Swedish woman, who was 103 years and 259 days old when she went skydiving. After recapturing the title, Blaschke had this advice for…well, everybody: “If you think you can’t, you’re just underestimating yourself. Everyone is more capable than they think. They just need to make the decision to try.”


Everything Everywhere All at Once” Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh has found her next major starring vehicle. She has been added to the cast of the Prime Video limited series “Blade Runner 2099”, a follow-up to the 2017 movie sequel “Blade Runner 2049”. Details of Yeoh’s role are under wraps, as is the show’s plot. It is the latest expansion of the sci-fi franchise based on Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, which kicked off with Ridley Scott’s classic 1982 film “Blade Runner”. Production recently began in Prague.

Disney will release no more than 3 Marvel films per year going forward, plus up to 2 Disney+ shows each year, as it works to place more focus on quality. The announcement by CEO Bob Iger comes as Disney shares plunged 8% Tuesday following the release of the entertainment giant’s quarterly earnings. This year will see the release of just one Marvel film: “Deadpool and Wolverine” starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, set for July 26. The next Marvel film, a ‘Captain America’ sequel, won’t be out until at least Feb., 2025.

Kris Jenner reveals that doctors discovered a tumor in an upcoming clip of the “Kardashians.” In a new trailer for the 5th season of the hit Hulu show, the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan can be seen sitting down next to her boyfriend Corey Gamble as she shared the news with Khlo√© Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Holding back tears, she says: “They found a cyst and like a little tumor.” No further details are given in the first teaser, meaning it’s not yet known if the tumor is malignant. “The Kardashians” Season 5 airs on May 23.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The first-ever Oscars took place this week back in 1929.

Spring has sprung, and many of us are spending more time these days on yard projects, including lawn care. But you might recall in previous years that some groups put the message out that we should give the lawn mower a rest, and observe “No Mow May”. The idea was to let the flowering plants like clover and dandelions to bloom, because they are some of the earliest food available for pollinators, says the Bee Squad at the University of Minnesota. But in case you’re concerned about what the homeowner’s association might say if you left your lawn untouched for a whole month, the latest bee-friendly campaign is slightly less unsightly. The Bee Lab says the goal of “Slow Mow Summer” is to mow less frequently throughout the summer — instead of not at all in one month, thereby helping pollinators all season long.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A free bottle of wine has finally been claimed after being hidden in the privacy policy of a tax-focused business’ website for 3 months. The UK’s Tax Policy Associates added the clause as an experiment, to see if anyone would actually read the full terms posted on the site. The non-profit organization’s head, Dan Neidle, shared the story on X, saying the first person to spot it would get sent a “bottle of good wine”. Now, after recent changes to the copy, among the thousands of words of fine print in the privacy policy area of the website, these words appear: “We know nobody reads this, because we added in February that we’d send a bottle of good wine to the first person to contact us, and it was only in May that we got a response.” Neidle came up with the idea as a “childish protest that all businesses have to have a privacy policy and no one reads it. It’s money being wasted.”

THE LIST: Brought to you by


If Mom overdid it on the Mimosas at Mother’s Day brunch yesterday, one of these may help…

Eggs: Those who know put this at #1 on the list. Eggs are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients that aid your body in recovering from too much alcohol the night before.

Bananas: Bananas and other fruits that are high in potassium can help, by helping relieve dehydration and lost electrolytes. The fiber can help with stomach issues, and natural sugars give a much-needed energy boost.

Avocados: They contain lots of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. And they’re good for your liver.

Salmon: It is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, nature’s firefighter that helps reduce inflammation throughout your body. Not only that, salmon is brimming with B vitamins, which are often depleted when your body processes alcohol.

Chicken Noodle Soup: Not only is it a comfort food, it packs protein from the chicken, electrolytes from the broth, and easily digestible carbs to help your body recover. Plus, all the goodness of veggies.
