Walmart DRAMA
One of the better “feel good” stories of this past Christmas season was when Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack visited a Walmart in his hometown of Fort Pierce, Florida, and gave them $80,000 to pay off all the store’s layaways, making hundreds of customers very happy. Unfortunately, that story has now been tainted – not by Khalil Mack – rather by Walmart employees. Apparently there was only $60,000 in layaway items at the store. So what do you think happened to the other $20 grand? Well it seems store managers allowed employees to go and put items on “layaway” for themselves, and then used the extra dough to pay that off. Walmart spokesperson Delia Garcia said: “We have determined the store did not handle the transaction in keeping with Walmart’s guidelines and have taken corrective action.” Garcia declined to reveal exactly how many employees and/or managers benefited from the ruse, but Walmart became privy to what transpired after an employee who was uninvolved in the spending spree brought it to the company’s attention.



LSU ACKNOWLEDGES BECKHAM JR. GAVE PLAYERS REAL MONEY AFTER CHAMPIONSHIP WIN: Louisiana State University acknowledged Wednesday (January 15th) that Cleveland Browns star and LSU football alum Odell Beckham Jr. gave several of the team’s players real money after they won the College Football Playoff National Championship against Clemson on Monday. Beckham Jr. was seen on video slapping cash into the hands of two players, juniors Justin Jefferson and Jontre Kirklin, and Heisman Trophy-winning senior quarterback Joe Burrow said on the Pardon My Take podcast that he got cash from him too. The incident could be a violation of NCAA rules, since players aren’t allowed to accept cash. LSU officials said, “We were in contact with the NCAA and the SEC immediately upon learning of this situation in which some of our student-athletes may have been placed in a compromising position. We are working . . . to rectify the situation.”

If you drink high-fat milk you might want to listen up. Brigham Young University researchers found people who drink low-fat milk (1% and skim) experience several years less biological aging than those who drink high-fat milk (2% and whole.) Additionally, those who drank no cow milk had more biological aging compared to those who consumed low-fat milk. Researcher Dr. Larry Tucker adds, “It’s not a bad thing to drink milk. You should just be more aware of what type of milk you are drinking.”




We all know getting a good night’s sleep is important. Researchers from the University of Manchester looked at mice, and found that collagen, or substance that provides the body with structure and elasticity, is repaired in the body when we sleep, and the processs is highly influenced by our body clocks. Also, collagen plays a role in how our skin appears– so in some sense “beauty sleep” is really a thing. Since our body clocks get less percise as we age, the scientists hope this information could one day help them unlock some of the mysteries of aging.




Go ahead and get busy, a new study finds having sex weekly or monthly may help women postpone menopause. The research shows that women who reported engaging in sexual activity weekly (including self-stimulation) were 28 percent less likely to have experienced menopause at any given age than women who engage in sexual activity less than monthly. Study co-author Megan Arnot explains, “The finding suggest that if a woman is not having sex, and there is no chance of pregnancy, then the body ‘chooses’ not to invest in ovulation, as it would be pointless. There may be a biological energetic trade-off between investing energy in ovulation and investing elsewhere, such as keeping active by looking after grandchildren.

There’s a new way to keep your cat or dog forever– you can have their fur spun into yarn. Artists on Etsy will create it for you. It’s hand-spun, and they call it “chien” (the french word for dog) for dogs and “catgora” for cats. One of these artists is Theresa Furrer, and she makes these yarns full time. She notes that it’s most difficult to spin the fur of poodles into yarn due to their matted curls, and that her favorite fur to spin comes from husky dogs, Malamutes and Great Pyrenees due to the structure of their fur. She’ll also knit for her customers who don’t know, for an additional fee. All of the yarn is spun from fur collected during grooming while the animal was still alive.
