As the school year approaches, and kids and teens prepare to share photos and videos of the summer, chronicle the days with group selfies, and generally hang out staring at small phones together, some experts are warning that these IRL social interactions could lead to lice. Pediatrician Sharon Rink told WBAY, an ABC affiliate in Wisconsin, that she’s noticed more lice in teens since selfies. She added, "Teenagers don’t usually get lice because they’re not sharing hats and things like that. And lice can’t jump, so the only way they can transmit lice is touching their heads together, and that’s happening with all these photos." The declaration has caused a bit of controversy with Time magazine pointing out that all of the evidence presented, by Rink and others, is anecdotal.
You probably know at least one person whose smartphone is attached to their hand at all times. They’re tweeting, or Instagramming, or Facebooking, playing CCGs, or doing whatever else is popular rather than interacting with the people around them. According to a survey conducted by Pew, we all do this more than we’d like to admit, and we all know it’s rude. Apparently, we just don’t care and are terrible. A combined 76% never or rarely turn their phones off, and 90% of cell phone owners frequently have their phones with them while out and about. What about actually using the phone, though? A robust 82% of survey participants think using a phone during a social gathering hurts the group dynamic, but a staggering 89% admitted to using their phone during a recent social event anyway.
In the new trailer for season 5 of Showtime’s “Homeland,” Claire Danes’ character, Carrie Mathison, states the obvious. “Maybe I knew someday that the past would catch up with me,” she says in a promo that includes kidnappings, bombings, a cyber attack and a deeply unhinged Peter Quinn, played by Rupert Friend. Season 5 of “Homeland” is shooting in Berlin, becoming the first U.S. TV series to film in entirety, in that city. This prompted the German capital to add nearly $2 million a year to film and TV funding. New cast members for the season include Miranda Otto, Alexander Fehling and Sarah Sokolovic. The series, which is up for five Emmy Awards, will return at 9 p.m.
