Even on a day-to-day basis, studies have shown that the more fruits and vegetables you eat, the happier, calmer, and more energetic you may feel that day-and this positivity can spill over into the next day.
Pope Adrian IV (Latin: Adrianus IV; born Nicholas Breakspear; c.?1100 - 1 September 1159), also known as Hadrian IV, was Pope from 4 December 1154 to his death in 1159.
Adrian IV is both the only Englishman and the only inhabitant of the British Isles to have occupied the papal throne. It is believed that he was born in Bedmond in the parish of Abbots Langley in Hertfordshire and received his early education at Merton Priory and the Abbey School, St Albans.
As Pope, he crowned Frederick I Barbarossa, and successfully removed Arnold of Brescia, who had challenged Papal rule of Rome, to become "to all intents and purposes, master of the city"

Pope Adrian IV. Breakspear was elected Pope in 1154 and is the only English born Pope. That was in the days before it was almost mandatory that the Pope be an Italian. In my lifetime the Italian spell has been broken. There has been a Pole, a German, and now an Argentinian Pope (although his family emigrated from Italy before he was born).

• Irina Baronova was one of the three Russian "baby" (that is, teenage) ballerinas of the 1930s. Once she was dancing for the King and Queen of England. Being eager to make a good impression, she threw all her energy into a jump, turned upside down, fell on her head - and was knocked unconscious. Another baby ballerina, Tatiana Riabouchinska, finished the dance for her.
• Theodore Thomas was a conductor who did much to introduce Americans to good music. He enjoyed telling an anecdote about a near-sighted trombonist who made a terrible error during rehearsal. Mr. Thomas asked what had happened. The trombonist explained, "Excuse me! I didn't have on my spectacles. A fly sat down among my notes, and I played him."
• When Anna Pavlova and her company danced Don Quixote, a real horse played Rocinante. Although the horse was well taken care of, when it was made up for its role it resembled the broken-down nag Cervantes had written about. In fact, in Great Britain, members of the audience complained to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
• In Blackpool, England, during the days of the heavy bombing of London in World War II, the London Philharmonic Orchestra played Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Unfortunately, when they used the sound effects of the firing of cannons, several members of the audience panicked because they thought the theater was being bombed.
• Two Italian laryngologists subjected Italian baritone Titta Ruffo to a number of scientific tests to determine the source of his magnificent voice. Scientific investigation can be painful. While connected to some scientific apparati, Mr. Ruffo hit a high A flat that made the scientists leave the room screaming because of aching teeth.
• Writing a comic strip that appears in foreign newspapers does have disadvantages. Rudolph Dirks, who drew the comic-strip The Katzenjammer Kids, invented a character that spoke in rhyme. Unfortunately, this drove the person who translated the dialogue into Spanish crazy, and so Mr. Dirks dropped the character.
• Ballet dancers may tend to stub their toes more often than other people because they aren't accustomed to looking down at the ground. According to Alexandra Danilova, the proper look for a ballet dancer is a "little bit snooty" - ballet dancers should have a slight upward tilt of the head.
• In the mid-1950s, Gene Bozzacco, who was a musician with the Metropolitan Opera, remembered a funny performance of Forza in Brooklyn. Both men about to have a duel forgot their pistols, and they were forced to run off the stage in different directions to get them.
• In the midst of a ballet, a wigpiece worn by ballerina Karen Kain flew off and landed on stage. Because the wigpiece was small and grey, it looked like a mouse, causing the members of the corps de ballet great perturbation.
• Soon after John Barbirolli was knighted, opera/lieder singer Kathleen Ferrier made a charming mistake in addressing him. Instead of addressing him as "Sir John," she simply said, "Hello, luv."
• Charles Dana Gibson received a lot of money for his illustrations. He once received a letter from a car company, which stated, "You are cordially invited to participate in our grand $100 prize contest. Each participant may submit one or more drawings advertising our automobile. The winner will receive a grand cash prize of $100. Drawings must be sent prepaid, and must be original, and all unsuccessful drawings will remain the property of the undersigned." Mr. Gibson received much more than $100 for one of his drawings, so this contest was laughable to him. He wrote this letter in reply to the car company: "You are cordially invited to participate in my grand $10 automobile contest. Each participant may submit one or more automobiles and the winner will receive a grand prize of $10. The automobiles submitted must be brand new and shipped [at your cost to] New York. They must be fully equipped. The unsuccessful automobiles will remain the property of the undersigned. Charles Dana Gibson."

Jeopardy, America's family favourite trivia gameshow, has stirred up anger over the Israel-Palestine conflict after locating the city of Bethlehem on the wrong side of the disputed border between the two territories.
The programme has aired more than 8,000 episodes and identifies itself as "America's favourite quiz show" - but was criticised for incorrectly locating the city following a question about Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity in the West Bank.
In an episode aired on 10 January contestant Katie Needle answered that the holy site was located in Palestine but was told this was incorrect by host Alex Trebek, and docked $200 in keeping with the rules of the show.
She was quickly followed by Jack McGuire who said the church was in Israel - an answer greeted with the words "that's it" from the host.
Since the 1993 Oslo Accords, Bethlehem, along with other regions of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, has been overseen the Palestinian National Authority - while the United Nations has previously identified the church as a world heritage site in Palestine. And while the nation is not formally recognised by the US, Bethlehem is regarded by the US State Department as part of disputed Palestinian territory.
Mark Hamill, a.k.a. Luke Skywalker, took to Instagram and Twitter to thank a media store in Flagstaff that found and returned a Star Wars record signed to him from John Williams.
Hamill thanked Bookmans Entertainment Exchange in Flagstaff for returning the LP (long playing record) from the legendary composer meant for Hamill.
Hamill said in his post he hadn't seen the record since the early 1990s.
"I'm so grateful to them & hope you consider spending lots & lots of $ at their store," the 68-year-old actor wrote.
Bookmans posted about it on their Instagram writing, "We recently found an LP signed by #johnwilliams and were able to return it to its rightful owner THE Mark Hamill!!!! So happy we were able to help. Huge thank you to Mark for being so kind and giving us a shoutout."
Oprah Winfrey has backed out of her role as executive producer on an upcoming documentary about the #MeToo movement, after being criticised for her involvement in the project.
While the key figures involved in the Apple TV+ project have yet to be announced, it will feature former Def Jam employee Drew Dixon - who told The New York Times in 2017 that entrepreneur and record executive Russell Simmons raped her back in 1995.
Media mogul Oprah had been linked to the project for some time, but in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday, she revealed she was withdrawing from the role as "it has become clear that the filmmakers and I are not aligned in that creative vision".
"I have decided that I will no longer be executive producer on the untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary and it will not air on Apple TV+," she said. "I want it to be known that I unequivocally believe and support the women. Their stories deserve to be told and heard."
Elaborating on her conflict with the filmmakers, the former daytime talk show host explained: "I have great respect for their mission, but given the filmmakers' desire to premiere the film at the Sundance Film Festival before I believe it is complete, I feel it's best to step aside. I will be working with Time's Up to support the victims and those impacted by abuse and sexual harassment."
Five years after their abortions, the strongest emotion almost all women feel isn't regret, but relief. That was the takeaway of a groundbreaking five-year study of 667 women published today in Social Science & Medicine.
The study, conducted between 2008 and 2016, followed each woman from a week after her abortion until five years post-abortion to see how she felt about her decision years down the line.
While other studies have looked at the emotional effects of abortion, they've been limited to a week or month post-procedure since larger, long-term studies are prohibitively expensive and time consuming.
"I wanted to investigate if there was any evidence to the claims that abortion had negative long-lasting effects," said epidemiologist Corinne Rocca, who conducted the study as part of UCSF's Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health and funded her study with grants from four different foundations.
"What we found was that there definitively wasn't" evidence to support claims that the procedure has detrimental long-term effects, Rocca said. The results showed nearly all women didn't regret their abortions
The sergeant in charge of one of the busiest Army recruiting centers in Colorado, Sgt. 1st Class Dustin Comes, joined the Army, in part, because his father served. Now two of his four children say they want to serve, too. And he will not be surprised if the other two make the same decision once they are a little older.
"Hey, if that's what your calling is, I encourage it, absolutely," said Comes, who wore a dagger-shaped patch on his camouflage uniform, signifying that he had been in combat.
Enlisting, he said, enabled him to build a good life where, despite yearlong deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, he felt proud of his work, got generous benefits, never worried about being laid off and earned enough that his wife could stay home to raise their children.
Soldiers like him are increasingly making the U.S. military a family business. The men and women who sign up overwhelmingly come from counties in the South and a scattering of communities at the gates of military bases like Colorado Springs, which sits next to Fort Carson and several Air Force installations, and where the tradition of military service is deeply ingrained.
More and more, new recruits are the children of old recruits. In 2019, 79% of Army recruits reported having a family member who served. For nearly 30%, it was a parent - a striking point in a nation where less than 1% of the population serves in the military.
Federal officials are prepared to bill wildfire victims for a portion of the nearly $4 billion the government says it's owed by Pacific Gas & Electric Co., if the debt isn't resolved as part of the utility's bankruptcy case, according to a newspaper report Sunday.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has asked for reimbursement from PG&E to cover costs from the government's response to destructive fires in 2015, 2017 and 2018. Under PG&E's current plan to resolve its bankruptcy, any payment to FEMA would have to come from the $13.5 billion the utility intends to reserve primarily to settle claims from wildfire victims, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Victims' lawyers are fighting FEMA's claim, which would take up nearly 30% of the settlement. But FEMA told the Chronicle it is compelled to seek compensation from PG&E. Otherwise, individual victims would be responsible if they get settlement funds that duplicate money already paid by the federal government, according to Bob Fenton, the agency's regional administrator.
Fenton said FEMA has "no interest" in reducing the amount of settlement funds available for fire victims.
FEMA's attempt to recover from PG&E was sharply criticized by 40 members of Congress in a letter to the agency's acting administrator last week. The letter cited concern at FEMA's "decision to litigate claims to the settlement fund for wildfire victims established by PG&E."
Particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are incredibly useful - and usually incredibly huge - instruments for studying some of the fundamentals of particle physics. But now scientists have managed to squeeze one on to a silicon chip.
It's nowhere near as powerful as the bigger versions, as you might expect, but the new particle accelerator chip could still be very helpful for researchers who aren't able to access gigantic particle accelerator setups.
While this first model is only a prototype, the team behind it is hopeful that it's a first step towards providing a more compact alternative to the well-known massive particle accelerators, including the LHC and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
To achieve this, the researchers turned to the much shorter wavelengths of lasers rather than the conventional microwave acceleration used at SLAC.
Director Sam Mendes' World War I story "1917" brought in $36.5 million in its first weekend of wide release, easily topping the box office and ending the three-week reign of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," which brought in $15 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
"Jumanji: The Next Level" was in third place in its fifth week of release for Sony with earnings of $14 million, and has totaled more than $257 million domestically.
Sony has a smaller sort of hit in "Little Women," which could also make a mark at Monday's Oscar nominations and continues its strong run for a film of its kind, bringing in another $7.65 million to put it in the sixth spot with a total of $74 million after three weeks.
"Like a Boss," Paramount's comedy starring Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne, finished in a fourth-place tie at $10 million with "Just Mercy."
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
1. "1917," $36.5 million, ($19.9 million international).
2. "Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker," $15.1 million, ($24.2 million international).
3. "Jumanji: The Next Level," $14 million, ($22.6 million international).
