It’s a common feeling: you rush out of the house, late for work or to meet a friend, only to be struck by the fear that you forgot to turn your iron off.

For the millions of workers stuck at home through the coronavirus pandemic, the idea of moving to a Caribbean island for a year sounds like a dream. But now it could become a reality. Barbados is planning to introduce a 12-month visa that would allow remote workers to swap cramped city apartments for the island’s white sandy beaches, blue sea and year-round sunshine. The scheme, known as the “Barbados Welcome Stamp,” is due to be launched in August and will be open to anyone earning more than $50,000. The scheme is designed to provide a much-needed boost to the island’s tourist-dependent economy, while capitalizing on the shift in work patterns driven by the coronavirus pandemic… The Barbados Welcome Stamp would give visitors the right to work in the country for up to a year, regardless of where their employer is based.

The Isabells said they did a little detective work and traced the bees to the top of the house. They had seen a rogue bee now and then near the attic, but never thought much of it. They called in The Bee Man who came out for a thermal scan and an assessment. He came back later to extract the colony.

- Losing weight can be hard, there’s no doubt about it. While poor diet and lack of exercise are often the primary culprits in weight gain, recent research shows that eating a late dinner may also be to blame. The study (in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism) finds that people who eat a late dinner burn less fat overnight. They also have higher blood sugar levels than those who eat dinner earlier. Results show that fat burning is reduced by 10 percent and peak blood sugar levels are almost 20 percent higher in late dinner eaters compared to early dinner eaters. They also found that these effects are most pronounced in people who regularly go to bed earlier. - It’s been a rough year for the American psyche. Folks in the U.S. are more unhappy today than they’ve been in nearly 50 years. The unsurprising conclusion comes from the COVID Response Tracking Study, conducted by the University of Chicago.

WACKY-BUT-TRUE: MAN FINED FOR FARTING ‘WITH FULL INTENT’ AT POLICE _ A man in Vienna, Austria, has been fined $565 for breaking wind loudly in front of police.

Cops say he got up from a park bench, looked at officers and “let go a massive intestinal wind apparently with full intent. And our colleagues don’t like to be farted at so much.” WACKY-BUT-TRUE: CAT CALLS 911 _ Police in New Zealand broke down the door to a home after receiving an emergency call from the building, only to find that the call had apparently been made by the cat.

WACKY-BUT-TRUE: ROBBER TRIES VARIOUS METHODS _ In Spain a guy tried to rob a small grocery store with his mom’s cane — after taking it from her. The guy was at the counter asking for money.

WACKY-BUT-TRUE: CLAIM: ‘HUMAN BONE’ ON MARS _ A bizarre snapshot of the surface of Mars has recently resurfaced along with the conspiracy theory that it shows a human bone.

- A lack of restrooms has left New Yorkers in a bind. They want to go out but then they are left holding it in. Restaurants, bars and coffee shops where New Yorkers could always find relief in the past have closed their restrooms to the public. Plus, with fears over the coronavirus still very present, many don’t feel safe going into germ-infested public restrooms. And hey, peeing in public isn’t even a crime anymore. In 2017, New York City introduced the Criminal Justice Reform Act, which decriminalized low-level offenses. - Get the milk ready because Frito-Lay just released its hottest chip ever, and it’s part of the Cheetos family.

He said the girl had asked earlier in the day if she could drive his Jeep, so he thought “it would be cool” and that he was trying to be a “cool father.” Michaelsen also told officers he had been drinking. … The arrest report indicates an officer spotted the Jeep making an illegal U-turn and then speeding away at about 12:10 AM Monday. He followed and the Jeep reached speeds of 85 mph in a 45 mph zone before he was able to pull it over. The officer said that when he asked the 12-year-old why she was driving so fast, she said Michaelsen told her to. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: PREGNANT WOMAN FALLS THROUGH KITCHEN CEILING _ A pregnant U.K. woman who fell through her kitchen ceiling didn’t break a single bone — but immediately went into labor. The woman was 35 weeks pregnant when she crashed through her bathroom floor and fell ten feet into the kitchen. The woman and her husband were renovating the bathroom for the arrival of the baby and there was nothing but plasterboard and joists. She thinks she missed a step. As soon as the paramedics got to her home they checked her out and then rushed her to the hospital to deliver her baby. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: LOCKED IN A VAULT _ In Argentina a man went to the bank late one Friday afternoon to get something out of his safe deposit box. He had only been inside the vault for a few minutes when the lights went out. He assumed there was some kind of electrical problem, but after a few minutes in the dark, he started getting nervous. He cried out for help, but no one answered. Then he heard the heavy doors of the vault closing with a loud thud. He was locked in, and since the bank didn’t have weekend business hours, he knew he was going to be in there for a long time.

- A study found that the average weight gained during pregnancy is 14 pounds — and that’s by the babies’ fathers. Five thousand male survey respondents said they were eating more as their partners’ pregnancies progressed. Their reasons: eating out more frequently before the baby comes (42 percent), the increased availability of snacks around the house (41 percent), the desire to make their partner feel better about her own weight gain (25 percent), and being served larger portions — apparently by a hungry mom-to-be (20 percent). - The better your social and home life, the less likely you are to suffer from high blood pressure and heart disease.

Fun Facts ✓ The odds of you existing are the same as 2 million people rolling trillion-sided dice and all landing on the same number. ✓ The phrase, “Happy wife, happy life,” is scientifically proven; husbands who have happy wives are more satisfied with their lives. - According to a new study, women who have no children and who aren’t married are the happiest people of all. Not only that, but they’re more likely to live longer than married women with children. The research (London School of Economics) reveals that marriage and children aren’t necessarily going to make women happier. This flies in the face of common — though unscientific — wisdom that says women are most satisfied in life when they have children and a spouse.

WACKY-BUT-TRUE: SUPER-PREPPER _ When the novel coronavirus swept through the United States, architect Joseph Badame had cause to say “I told you so!” He didn’t know what calamity was coming, but Badame prepared for nearly everything: he designed and built an 8,500 square-foot, partly-underground house on 3 acres in Medford, New Jersey, surrounded by an electric fence, plus enough outbuildings and food to accommodate 120 friends and family for a full year. He even thought to stock 4,200 rolls of toilet paper, and buried tanks to hold gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, and heating oil. He installed a coal-fired furnace supplied by “tons” of coal stacked outside. … What does Badame think now, with COVID-19 killing thousands per day?

Tips from WomensHealthMag.com. YEAR-OLD PRESCRIPTIONS – TRASH ‘EM. It’s not like a wine cellar. They aren’t getting better with time. With antibiotics, shelf life is even shorter. They’re prescribed for a specific condition for a specific period of time, so when you’re done, toss them. OLD MAGAZINES – TRASH ‘EM. You keep telling yourself you’re going to look at them. You’re lying. Rule of thumb on reading: Give weeklies 1 month and monthlies 3 months. 6-MONTH-OLD FROZEN CHICKEN – STASH IT. Uncooked pieces can last 9 months in the freezer before the fibers start to break down and the taste fades away. Cooked ones only make it to 4 months. In theory, the chicken could last forever at zero degrees, although most home freezers don’t keep things that cold, and most people don’t have cravings for 27-year-old frozen chicken.
