GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Kid Started Walking to School Every Day and Lost 115 Pounds

By |2019-05-15T06:07:36-05:00May 15th, 2019|

A lot of us have made this mistake:  You try to get in shape by going overboard, and do too much too fast.  Like you decide to run five miles . . . then you're sore for a week and never do it again. So the right way to do it is by thinking long-term . . . creating goals . . . and sticking with a routine.  And here's a great example . . . There's a 17-year-old kid in Canton, Ohio named Michael Watson who's graduating from high school this month.  And he's been overweight most of his life.  At one point, he was [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: Pigging Out Every Now and Then Isn’t That Bad, and Your Body Can Adapt

By |2019-05-14T06:48:20-05:00May 14th, 2019|

If you're planning to eat-and-drink your way through Memorial Day weekend, this might help with the guilt . . . A new study found our bodies actually bounce back fairly quickly after a big day of gluttony.  And occasional overeating probably won't cause long-term issues.  But that doesn't mean you can overindulge EVERY weekend. Researchers had people overeat for five straight days to simulate how you might act around a big holiday weekend.  Each person added 1,000 calories a day to their diet.  And it turns out our bodies are pretty good at coping with it.  Because it didn't have any significant long-term effects on metabolism or [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Woman Stiffed Her Waiter, and He Still Returned Her $424,000 Cashier’s Check

By |2019-05-13T06:20:26-05:00May 13th, 2019|

A guy named Armando Markaj waits tables at a well-known pizza joint in New York called Patsy's.  And earlier this month, a lady named Karen Vinacour was there with her adult daughter, and didn't leave a tip.  Here's why . . . The walls of the place are covered in photos of famous people who've been there.  And she asked why there weren't more photos of women.  So Armando joked that maybe they just don't like pizza as much.  And they didn't like that.  So they stiffed him and left. But then Armando had a chance for some major payback.  Because they accidentally left an envelope [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Radio Station Helped an 81-Year-Old Find Her 104-Year-Old Birth Mother

By |2019-05-10T06:10:35-05:00May 10th, 2019|

How's this for a Mother's Day story:  There's an 81-year-old in Ireland named Eileen Macken, who grew up in an orphanage and never knew her parents. She started searching for her mom when she was 19, and kept searching for 60 years but never found her.  Then last year, she told her story on a radio show in Ireland.  And a genealogy expert who happened to be listening offered to help. And after some digging, they found out her mom was STILL ALIVE. Her name is Elizabeth.  She lives in Scotland and turns 104 years old this weekend.  And last month, Eileen [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: Scientists May Have Found the “Holy Grail” for Recycling Plastic

By |2019-05-09T06:22:10-05:00May 9th, 2019|

Most people don't know this, but it's not very easy to recycle plastic.  And virtually all of it ends up in landfills, or in the ocean sooner or later. Only about 9% of plastic waste gets recycled.  And even under perfect conditions, you can only recycle it 7 to 9 times.  Then it's trash.  Which is why this might be huge news. A team of researchers with the Department of Energy just created a new type of plastic that can be recycled an INFINITE number of times . . . something referred to as the "Holy Grail" of recycling. It's called PDK plastic.  And it's [...]

Kraft Will Reimburse You If You Hire a Babysitter on Mother’s Day

By |2019-05-08T08:36:50-05:00May 8th, 2019|

This might be the best thing Kraft has done for parents since they invented Easy Mac! Kraft just announced that they're going to pay for your babysitter on Mother's Day, so you can get some time to relax. They'll reimburse you up to $100 if you submit your receipt for the babysitter you hire on Sunday at KraftMothersDayAway.com. There's a catch, though:  They're only reimbursing a total of $50,000, which is only 500 moms' worth of $100 babysitting, so send in your receipt QUICK.   https://www.instagram.com/p/BxKJURxnR-1/?utm_source=ig_embed SOURCE: BRAND EATING
