A new study has claimed that eye contact can reduce lying. In a study done by the University of Tampere, Finland, participants played a lying game on a computer against another person. During each game trial, participants were first briefly presented with a view of the opponent through a smart glass window — after which they made a move in the game. Depending on the trial, the opponent either looked at the participant in the eyes or downward toward their computer screen. When the opponent looked directly into the participant’s eye, it was found to reduce subsequent lying in the game. Study author Jonne Hietanen said, “This was the first study to demonstrate the effect by using actual eye contact with another person and by measuring not just any form of dishonesty, but lying.” She added, “However, because the results were obtained in an experimental situation, one must be careful not to draw too far-reaching conclusions.”

Snoop Dogg tells WMMJ that he is working on a movie about his life. “You see how like Narcos went from Escobar to the Cali cartel, now it’s about to go to Mexico. I’m thinking like a Snoop Dogg biopic: late ’60s with my mother and father; pops in Vietnam; ’70s, when I was born in ’71, in the hippie era growing up; ’80s, football, selling candy—uh oh!—cocaine, selling drugs, gang-banging; ’90s—uh!—rap […] You see what I’m sayin’? To me, that’s more enticing than a two-hour Snoop Dogg movie.”

The NY Post claims ”Stone Cold” Steve Austin has given up beer. He says; “My eating program is going fantastic. I’m sticking to my exact macros. I’ve had zero alcohol for right at 14 days now.

No alcohol, and when you hit the weights on a consistent basis and eat what you’re supposed to, it is amazing the difference that you can make or I’m making.”

A new study has found that marriage makes you healthier, unless you’re a straight Female:Ohio State University interviewed ninety married couples about their health and found that straight women, lesbians and gay men tend to check on their partner’s health and encourage them to go to the doctor. Meanwhile, straight men seem to take a backseat when it comes to their health and their partner’s health. So, how should women get their men to care more about health? Psychotherapist William Berry said that recognizing the behavior is not enough. He explained, “People do not have to accept these roles, and can become aware of them and alter them before the relationship is damaged. Men may be inclined to be more playful, and women to be more motherly, but with knowledge of the roots of these motivations, partners can have improved understanding, compassion, and dialogue.”…..More HERE

The scientific reason why you can’t stop eating Halloween candy: Halloween candy is literally everywhere today– can you resist? It turns out sugar addiction alone isn’t the only reason you can’t stop popping those tiny candy bars once you start. An assistant professor of Nutrition at Simmons University, Rachele Pojednic says it’s the convergence of sugar, fat and salt found in many candies that “really revs up the hedonic eating system.” In other words, you’re eating for pleasure rather than physical need. Pojednic says it might even go beyond the candy’s ingredients, saying “We have these really complex neurologic systems where learning and memory and pleasure all come together. That’s why when you walk into the office and you see that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, your mouth literally starts watering. You will automatically start salivating, because you have this memory of pleasure, so that cycle sort of continues.” This can happen with any food you find delicious, but with something like Halloween candy, which is often linked to nostalgia and positive memories, it’s likely to trigger an even more intense reaction. She adds that it’s ok to give in to your urge to eat candy sometimes, but it’s important to practice mindful eating overall…… More HERE

STUDY: Going to bed with your Ex is good for you

Jumping back in bed with an ex is commonly thought to just prolong one’s pain, but a new study finds that doing so doesn’t seem to hinder one from moving on after a breakup. Wayne State University researchers conducted two experiments and found that pursuing sex with an ex did not seem to stand in the way of people’s subsequent recovery from a breakup on a daily basis or over the course of two months. Also, most wanted to have sex with their ex as a potential way to foster closeness and connection, but even those individuals were not left feeling distressed or feeling depressed after the interaction– in fact, they actually came away feeling more positive in everyday life. Lead author Stephani Spielmann adds, “This research suggests that societal hand-wringing regarding trying to have sex with an ex may not be warranted. The fact that sex with an ex is found to be most eagerly pursued by those having difficulty moving on, suggests that we should perhaps instead more critically evaluate people’s motivations behind pursuing sex with an ex.”…..

Nice People More Likely To Go Bankrupt: A new study by the Columbia Business School reveals that nice people are more likely to go bankrupt than mean people. Researchers studied financial data and personal habits before concluding, “We found that agreeableness was associated with indicators of financial hardship, including lower savings, higher debt and higher default rates. This relationship appears to be driven by the fact that agreeable people simply care less about money and therefore are at higher risk of money mismanagement.”

Some people love to watch horror movies, while others can’t stand them. Have you ever wondered why? Well one reason is that some people enjoy feeling more intense emotions, this is called “need for affect,” and a 2010 study has found that people with this desire tend to like horror movies. In addition, some people just react differently to fear. Sociologist Margee Kerr adds, “There are folks who have had a bad experience with horror movies or scary content and associate all things scary with negativity. [It’s] basic fear conditioning, for them it’s just not fun and never has been.” As for those who enjoy scary movies, it’s likely due to the feelings they get afterwards, as Kerr explains, “Psychologically when we make it through a safe yet scary activity it results in feelings of confidence, competence, accomplishment, and success — it can be a real self-esteem boost.”….

Zombie Boot Camp Teaches People How to Run From the Walking Dead: Zombie Boot Camp costs $75 and teaches Londoners how to survive a zombie invasion.

Walking Dead 101: The University of California offered a course on ”The Walking Dead” called “Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s The Walking Dead.”

Each week we’ll watch engaging lectures, listen to expert interviews, watch exclusive interviews with cast members talking about their characters, use key scenes from the show to illustrate course learning, read interesting articles, review academic resources, participate in large and small group discussions, and of course test our learning with quizzes.”

According to Experts, this is the best way to break up with someone

Break ups are never fun, but there is a right way to do it. Rachel Sussman, a New York City psychotherapist says if you’re ending a relationship, you owe it to the other person to explain why. She adds that ideally, your reasoning shouldn’t shock the other person, because you’ve discussed it before and tried to work through it. New York psychologist Guy Winch adds, “Find the one thing, because that might be useful for them [to know.]” Don’t use this as a time to unload all of your pent-up complaints and snide comments. Also, the experts say choosing your words carefully is important (say things like “This bothers me,” or “This really was difficult for me,” instead of blaming the other person.) Other important things to do: break up in person, be sure before you do it, and then let the other person decide whether or not to contact you….. More HERE

What’s The Difference Between Loving Someone & Being In Love?

You love your mom, but you’re not in love with her– you likely know this. But it might be a bit harder when it comes to defining other relationships in your life. Relationship expert Susan Winter explains, “We overuse the word love, just like we overuse the word ‘friend.’ This term has been so watered down that most people with a fondness for someone are certain they love him or her. […] In love means that you’ve weathered the storms of your partner’s negative qualities, and still choose to remain in the relationship. Your love is unconditional. It’s all-inclusive as you accept the positive and negative aspects of your mate.” But, it’s also possible to fall in love with time, as can be showcased by some arranged marriages.

Man Has 22-Foot Mustache: The Daily Mail claims an Indian man named Girdhar Vyas believes he has set a new world record for the world’s longest mustache. He has been growing his 22-foot mustache for 30 years and uses lemon and curds to clean it.

Vyas tells BTV; ”This is not easy at all. It takes two to three hours grooming daily. As soon as I wake up, the first thing I do is spread my moustache on the bed. Once I have done that I put some oil in a cup and I massage it with the oil. It takes around two hours to apply the oil. After that, I add lemon, and black pepper powder to it, and massage it in every evening. All this helps to keep my moustache soft.”
