#RizzNews: Watch Trump Sip Water In One Of The Weirdest Ways Ever…Loud Music at Bars Makes You Drink 31% More Alcohol AND MORE
Sen. Marco Rubio had a chance at payback Wednesday, when President Donald Trump noticeably sipped from a water bottle multiple times during a speech — a move Trump had mocked Rubio for during the 2016 campaign.
The grocer announced Wednesday it’s slashing prices again, this time on several “holiday staples,” including sweet potatoes, canned pumpkin and turkey.
If you’re an Amazon (Tech30) Prime member, you’ll pay even less for turkey: Whole Foods slashed turkey prices to $1.99 per pound (compared to $2.49 for non-Prime members), or $2.99 per pound for an organic turkey ($3.49 for non-Prime members). ,
To redeem the discount, Amazon is offering a printable coupon only accessible to Prime members on its website.
“These are the latest new lower prices in our ongoing integration and innovation with Amazon, and we’re just getting started,” Whole Foods CEO John Mackey said in a prepared statement. Whole Foods said this Prime-specific deal is a “sneak preview” for future exclusive deals.
Whole Foods also announced it is cutting prices on boneless skinless chicken breasts, shrimp, Russet potatoes, bagged salad mixes, broccoli, organic eggs and milk from Organic Valley, Applewood hot dogs, and Chobani and Fage yogurt.
It’s the second time Amazon took the knife to Whole Foods’ prices. The company slashed prices on nearly 500 grocery items in August, shortly after its $13.7 billion purchase closed. The cheaper prices led to a foot traffic spike at Whole Foods, with many new customers defecting from its rivals.
Loud Music at Bars Makes You Drink 31% More Alcohol
If you’re still hitting clubs in your 40s, here’s another reason to retire that Ed Hardy shirt and go to a nice, quiet pub instead. It could help with those increasingly bad hangovers you’re getting . . .
Someone came across a study from 2008 that looked at how loud music affects alcohol consumption. And it actually makes a pretty big difference.
Researchers went to bars where the music was either played at 72 decibels, or 88 decibels. 88 isn’t even that crazy. Really loud clubs can be well over a hundred decibels.
But even at 88, people drank 31% more, and also drank faster. The average person took 14-and-a-half minutes to drink a beer when the music wasn’t that loud, compared to 11-and-a-half minutes when it was louder.
Apparently it happens for two reasons: The added stimulation gets your adrenaline going, so you drink faster. Other studies have found the same thing happens with food.
And the other reason is it’s just harder to have a conversation when there’s loud music in the background. So you end up talking less, and drinking more.
