Showbiz Rumors: Brad Pitt’s Secret New Girlfriend?

Finally, we get to meet Brad Pitt’s new partner. It’s been quite the secret these past few months, but the woman who has caught Brad’s (54) heart is named Neri Oxman (42), and she is an acclaimed architect and an MIT professor.

Yeah, yeah… they’re just friends… but according to “Page Six TV,” a source said that “Brad and Neri instantly hit it off because they share the same passion for architecture, design and art. This is best described as a professional friendship.”

Unfortunately, the source also added, “Their friendship has not turned into romance … as both are cautious and this is, again, more of a professional friendship, but Brad is very interested in spending more time with Neri, she is fascinating.” They are both working on an architectural project together and became very close friends.

Oxman is an American-Israeli architect and designer and considered the rock star of the architect world. She was married before to Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov. And Pitt is still finalizing his divorce from Angelina Jolie and they have even reached an agreement regarding their 6 children.

Here’s a recap on the Brangelina duo

Here’s Neri Oxman in a short video from Milan Design Week

Must Watch: Emperor Penguin Takes Selfie

The selfie-snapping animals are at it again. Two Emperor Penguins in Antarctica captured a short video of themselves. The black and white flightless birds are filmed closely inspecting the equipment after stumbling over it in the Australian research station on the ice-covered continent.

After coming across the camera which was left on the ice, the curious penguins inadvertently captured the selfie video. The Penguins took the opportunity to check out their reflections and it didn’t take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie.

For about half a minute, the two chirp and cock their heads inquisitively at the screen, before perking up and shaking their heads (and bellies) repeatedly.

FYI
Emperor Penguins are native to Antarctica, with the emperor being the largest of the 18 Penguin species. They’re also known to breed during the Antarctic winter when temperatures can drop down to -50C.

Selena Gomez and her Private Guards

When Selena Gomez started her REVIVAL tour a few months ago, she decided to capture her fan moment in every city she’d visit. It’s nice to see her connect that way with her biggest fans.

On several locations it was not possible for her to get out to meet fans, so she captured a fan moment on stage. She really does seem to like being with them.

Funny thing…

But when checking out the pictures from the backstage fan meetups, something jumps out. Maybe it jumps out only to ADHD people like me, anyway, the two guys holding the barrier are always the same two guys. it’s like they’re her personal barrier guards or something.

In any case, it’s nice to see. Selena and her private guards…

I can still see you…

Breakthrough: A New Medical Procedure Will Freeze Your Hunger

There is a new horizon (possibly) for those who suffer from failed diets and weight loss programs. An initial trial has shown that hunger signals to the brain could be stopped.

Stopping my brain from getting hunger signals?! Seems like a dream come true! Well, don’t take your shirt off yet… this procedure will probably be approved for use in a few years at best.

The procedure has only finished the safety check testing before a real trial, but “results are in” as they say. Safety testing is actually checking to see if the test itself is safe. If the test process is correct and nonhazardous.
So… in this pilot test researchers have shown good signs that freezing the nerve that carries our hunger signals to the brain could freeze hunger itself, helping us lose weight without a real downside.

Too good to be true?

Currently, it IS too good, and it IS true. But now, real medical trials need to be done to see long-term effects, side effects and how long does this treatment last.
This freezing of the nerve procedure is being done on other nerves to treat chronic pain. It’s called CryoablationThe men and women in the study had a BMI of 30-37 (categorized as obesity), but did not meet the criteria of a surgical intervention.

 

How does it work?

Doctors sedated the patients and inserted a needle into their backs using a CT as their guide. The needle was inserted into the posterior vagal trunk (don’t ask us what that means). Then the needle was filled with a freezing gas that froze the needle and its surroundings, including the nerve itself.
That freezing degenerates the part of the nerve and stops the signaling to the brain. It takes no more than 30 minutes and you’re out.

Initial Results?

Everyone in the initial trial reported a lowered appetite sensation. Remember, they are all considered obese.
53% of the patients reported “very much less appetite,” 30% said “much less appetite” and 17% reported “somewhat less appetite.” Overall, people had a 14% decrease in their excess BMI.
The researchers say that it is not supposed to help on its own, but it will make calorie restriction much easier.

Will I ever be hungry?

The nerve freeze isn’t a permanent procedure. The nerve will fully grow back after 10 months, give or take 2 months. The head researcher said: “We are able to do this because the body [also] has other backup systems” for cueing hunger.

If You Fear the Deep… Don’t Watch (But you should)

If you’ve ever heard about anglerfish, then you should know that they are a weird looking family of fish. One would even say ugly or scary. Well, your imagination is not far from the truth, as what you see topside in museums and online is only part of the monster.

This video shows, for the first time, a pair of anglerfish, male and female, attached. You can’t quite see the second fish as it is almost like Earth next to The Sun, but it is attached to the bigger one’s body.

Now… which one do you think the male is, and which is the female?

Yes, in nature, female rules….

Take a look at this short video explaining what [tf] we are looking at.

The Kardashians Mind Breaker Solution

We don’t know if the Kardashians make this easy or hard to figure out but don’t despair if you find out that the answer was so easy, because we all have our bad days and good days. We all miss small details while in the rush of our lives, so it’s all ok. Here is the solution process…

First…

We have 3 Kims that add up to 30. So 30 divided by 3 is 10. So each Kim Kardashian is 10.

Second…

We have one Kim, who is 10, and 2 Kendall heads, which add up to 18. And 10 + 8 = 18. Both Kendalls are 8, so Each Kendall is 4.

Third…

We have a Kendall minus Kylie. Kendall is 4, and (4 – Kylie =2), so Kylie is also 2.

Last…

Kim is 10, Kendall is 4 and Kylie is 2, but X comes first, so 4X2 =8 and then 8 + Kim… 8+10 = 18

So the correct answer is 18.

Are You Worried About Khloé Kardashian’s Pregnancy?

Her family is in the spotlight for so long that it seems as if they decide what’s going on in Trump’s administration, or with North Korea and even the Middle East.

If you’re a Keepin up with the Kardashians fan, you know that Khloé is 8 months pregnant. And NOW she decided to fly to Tokyo?

When the social media queen posted photos of herself with her faithful entourage of sisters in tow for an impromptu babymoon to Tokyo a few days back, the Internet went wild with accusations. They first questioned her motives to cradle her baby bump so much, to which Khloé answered:

“People are very opinionated about my bump. I choose to cradle my bump because it’s MINE. I’ve waited for this VERY short moment for YEARS. I have only months to enjoy this phase in my life, so I will touch my bump and love my bump as often as I choose. Mommy loves you baby!”

She has not disclosed her due date yet, but she did announce that she is in her third trimester, making her around 28 weeks pregnant. In fact, according to Mayo Clinic, air travel is safe for expectant mommies up until their 36th week of gestation, barring there are other medical complications. Actually, the second trimester is ideal and safest if you want to fly on a trip. So, leave Khloé alone! :-)

Most Memorable Red Carpet Fashion Moments

Any red carpet event has its moments. Oftentimes it doesn’t really matter what the event it, as long as the stars would be seen on the red carpet. And they look amazing of course. Some put their minds to how they would look, and some are just radiant no matter what they have on.

Here are some of the most memorable moment on the red carpet at the Oscars and other red carpet events.

Dakota Johnson- Academy Awards, 2017

It is the farthest cry from her 50 Shades of Grey personae, in which she is usually scantily clad (or totally naked). Dakota Johnson comes from a long line of famous actors, so we expect her to be in the know as to what to wear on the red carpet.

50 shades of gold

It is a total mystery, therefore, why she chose this fancy pilgrims wear to the Oscars. unless this is an ultra-conservative Christian statement – like Madonna in the early 90’s trying to persuade everyone, she was a devout Jesus loving Christian, this look is a total fail.

 

There’s more!

Life Hacks to Avoid Like The Plague

While the growth of the internet has been a truly amazing thing for humanity, it has always come with some rather significant drawbacks that people simply do not think of. For example, the era of the ‘life hack’ has been upon us for a couple of years now. Social media viral sharing and easy pollution of the internet with your own media means that we can easily share some ‘hacks’ online that are supposed to make life easier.

Now, while many life hacks are indeed a work of genius, some of them are, uh, less so. Take the following ‘life hacks’ that, if used, could put you in an early grave. If you want to live a happy and full health, we recommend you avoid any of the following!

Batteries in the Fridge.

Some geniuses claim that putting batteries in the fridge can add more lifespan to the battery. It can also, though, make it rust. Rusty batteries then begin to leak, and battery fluid in your freezer is like spreading toxic waste on a sandwich. This is something that could literally kill you via poisoning. Batteries are a lot cheaper than reconstructive surgery or a funeral so, uh, yeah…. just buy another pack. Conservation is nice, but not to the point of risking your health.

Fasting is Foolish.

Another weird ‘life hack’ has become about fasting. Fasting to starve your body to ‘cleanse’ it of all toxins is a madness. Your body works 24/7 to produce and then kill off toxins all the time; if it did not do this naturally, you would die. You don’t need to starve yourself to make sure you can get your body to detox itself. You merely make yourself weaker physically and mentally, and make it very hard to get the exact nutritional balance that makes combatting these problems in the first place a possibility!

Microwaved Food without Sogginess.

Now, this is a weird one. People seem to think that if you microwave a dish that you don’t want to go soggy while putting a glass of water in there, that it avoids the food from going crispy. Not only is this primary school science at its best, it adds even more moisture which allows for dormant bacteria to become active once again.

Toaster as a Grill.

We can’t even believe this is a thing. Rather than just use the grill, people like to turn their toaster on its side and “grill cheese” in this way. Not only is this absolutely redundant and nowhere near as good as doing with a real grill, it’s damn dangerous. You’ll be pouring cheese and grease all over the toaster’ heating element, which can cause a fire in an instant. You are also letting the heat build-up within the toaster to come out in a way it’s simply not intended. Just use the grill!

Want to live longer? Then avoid trying any of the positively ludicrous ideas above and you should be A-OK!

Coffee and Cancer? Californians, Watch Out

For most people, the day always starts with a cup of coffee. People love coffee, and so do I. It’s a fine little jolt to get you started in the morning and, truth be told, is often a substitute for breakfast.  Poor dietary habits aside, though, some concerning information is coming out of California. If you are like me and love your coffee in the morning, this might make you take a big old gulp.

Despite numerous studies over the years showing us that coffee can be good for us, it appears that in California we might start seeing a label telling us that coffee increases the risk of contracting cancer. As part of Proposition 65 by the Environmental Protection Agency, any cancer-causing chemicals in any product must be then alerted to the people who will be interacting with said chemical.

One chemical, acrylamide, is part of cooking foods at a high temperature – and this is the same with coffee beans. When the beans go beyond a certain temperature, they produce this powerful chemical that could – COULD – be linked to cancer development. At present, 13 companies have agreed to start printing these warning labels on their walls and in their stores. This includes the popular 7-Eleven store, so don’t get freaked out when you walk into the store and see CANCER written on the wall.

Unfortunately, taking coffee beans to this specific temperature is just part of the process. This means that the chemical by-product will be produced and that can be a bit of a nightmare scenario. Do you want to cut out yet another potentially cancer-causing product? Or do you want to take an extra hour in the morning to wake up? It’s a tough choice for many, even if it sounds simple.

If you are like me and have spent a lifetime drinking coffee, though, this might have you on high alert. While we’re all (mostly) aware that cups of coffee that are loaded with sugar, chocolate and the like isn’t exactly as healthy as a black coffee without sugar, this new warning will help to set alarm bells ringing in most cautiously minded readers.

While the acrylamide levels needed to cause cancer in a rat, as part of one study, was as much as 10,000 times the amount the average human would take in, and human studies are inconclusive, those who are serious about keeping themselves away from anything even remotely dangerous might want to change the drink they start their day with for the time being.

Sorry.

Are Central Perk Coffee Shops Becoming a Reality?

Now, I can’t believe that I’m writing this in 2018. This is an article I fully expected to be a reality sometime in the late 1990s, nevermind now. However, as Friends has gone onto Netflix and many people who watched it as kids or listened to their parents talk about it get the chance to see it from the start, you’ll no doubt get (overly) used to the Central Perk coffee shop. The gang hang out there for large sections of the show, and for that reason, it has become a rather common starting point for most people when talking about the show.

In fact, for years, groups built on the Friends dynamic have often tried to find their own coffee shop of this variety to hang out in. News coming out of sources like The Blast, though, are convincing us that we might finally be about to see a real, actual Central Perk appear.

Warner Bros. have been granted a trademark for the name as well as the logo, as well as the usage in coffee shape and café services. Whether this is merely a move to box off anyone else getting in there first or having their own rip-off version, or they are actually about to come to life, we aren’t sure yet.

However, they also apparently have taken the name for everything from toys and board games to slot machines (though it’s still pending) so there’s obviously some kind of intent in the background to make this a reality. So, if you ever wanted to go and perpetually hang around a coffee shop, and get to know the staff to the point of over-familiarity, then you might just have the chance to go and do that now.

What is interesting about this is the fact that WB already has ownership of all of this, as they own Friends. Therefore, it’s interesting that they have gone this far to trademark it all; you couldn’t have ripped it off yourself anyway, so the fact they are moving to secure this does point to the fact that they might be in the process of actually starting one of these up in the near future.

It’s certainly an interesting debate, and one that should give us all the opportunity to finally try and be our own take on what was arguably the most popular 90s TV show. Given the massive positivity of the 20th anniversary Central Perk pop-up that happened in Manhattan, they have all the information they need to know that this is likely going to be an absolutely mammoth success in time.
