POWER OF PROXIMITY
A new study shows that younger workers may benefit from working more in person. The report, called "The Power of Proximity," which compiles research from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, University of Iowa, and Harvard, found that younger workers at a tech company received more feedback when they worked in person and got less guidance when they were totally remote. This was especially true for women. The authors also said their findings suggest that remote work could make it harder for younger people to build their skills and professional networks.
FRIED FOOD & DEPRESSION
There could be a hidden cost to binging on fried food, and it has nothing to do with your blood pressure. A new study published on Monday in the peer-reviewed PNAS journal said there could be a connection between fried food and depression. People who ate fried food frequently were 12 percent more likely to have anxiety, and 7 percent more likely to have depression. The study looked at over 140,000 people over a period of 11 years. A chemical formed during the frying process could be to blame. At the same time, experts said the findings are unclear, noting that people may turn to fried food if they're already experiencing depression or anxiety.
Finally, Snapchat's newest feature is not popular with users. The company made My AI, a chatbot powered by ChatGPT, free to all users less than a week ago, and it's already led to a deluge of one-star reviews. According to data firm Sensor Tower, 75 percent of the Snapchat user reviews have been one star, My AI was mentioned in almost 3,000 of those user reviews. If you have a snapchat account, you already know that My AI is pinned to the top of your chat feed, and can't be moved, blocked, or deleted unless you're a Snapchat Plus subscriber.
