POKEMON GO CHAMPION ACTUALLY CAUGHT ’EM ALL _ Pokemon GO is all over the place, but we’ve got our champion: Nick Johnson of Brooklyn has caught ‘em all. On Reddit, Johnson claims to have captured all 142 Pokemon available in the US. There are more, but some are secret, while others are limited to various international regions. Johnson played up to eight hours per night, often after a full work day. The Health app on his iPhone says he has walked about eight miles per day since Pokemon GO launched.

… To collect all 142, he had to capture a total of 4,629 Pokemon. Johnson says he ventured outside of Brooklyn. To catch Porygon, he says “I may or may not have seen it on the radar and then ordered an Uber to drive me around until I found it.”

… His best advice for aspiring Pokemasters? “Buy some good walking shoes.”

The teens were playing when they crossed the border into Sweetgrass, Montana, from Coutts, Alberta. The teens continued playing the game until they were picked up by United States border patrol agents.

… After questioning the teens were ultimately released back to the Canadian border after it was determined they were not a threat to the United States. The teens’ mother was called and met the border agents at the Canadian border to retrieve her kids.

STRESSFUL JOB? IT MIGHT HELP YOU FIGHT OFF ALZHEIMER’S _ Researchers (Alzheimer’s Research Center in Wisconsin) say lawyers, teachers and doctors have a better chance of fighting off the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, because of the complex nature of their jobs. Researchers found that people whose jobs combined complex thinking with social engagement with others  — such as social workers and engineers — were better protected against the onset of Alzheimer’s, compared to those in manual work.

… The study came as another report suggested that people with a poor diet could protect themselves against cognitive decline by adopting a mentally stimulating lifestyle.

7-ELEVEN USED A DRONE TO DELIVER SLURPEES AND A CHICKEN SANDWICH _ A drone has autonomously delivered Slurpees, a chicken sandwich, doughnuts, hot coffee and candy from a Reno, Nevada 7-Eleven to a nearby home. The delivery was made “in a matter of minutes” to two busy working parents near their store and the drone hovered in place and gently lowered each package to the ground in the family’s backyard.

… To find customers willing to have their order handled by a flying robot, the companies surveyed households within a one-mile radius of the store from which they planned to deliver. 7-Eleven partnered with drone-delivery company Flirtey, which has also used its drones to perform a ship-to-shore delivery of medical supplies. They’re calling this flight the first FAA-approved drone delivery to a home and a historic milestone in commercial deliveries, and both companies plan to continue working together in the future to perform more testing on drone deliveries.

HYPNO-PARENTING _ If all else fails, would you use hypnosis on your children to make them behave? This is known as hypno-parenting and is negatively viewed by many people, but successful used by some. Lisa Machenberg, a mother of three and a professional hypnotist in California, claims to use hypno-parenting. She says, “Hypnosis and parenting is a natural combination. If we learn hypno-parenting, we learn how to hypnotize our children to be cooperative, peaceful, have containment, and have good study habits because they have focus and have more resilience out there in the world.” Her hypnotic practice is not cheap. She charges $125 a session and has used hypnosis on more than 1,000 children. She even admits that she regularly uses hypno-parenting at home with her children and husband. • VIDEO

… Machenberg offers this example. If you want to increase the chances that your young son will do something the first time you ask, simply nod your head up and down in a “yes” motion as you give your direction, and you will notice him nodding back.

SWIMMERS WANT SLEEP IN RIO _ Because U.S. Olympics and NBC officials want swimming finals in prime time — 10 PM Eastern — the U.S. Swim Team will need to catch some sleep when there’s daylight.

McDONALD’S FORCED TO HALT BIG MAC SALES IN VENEZUELA _ The latest sign of deepening economic crisis in Venezuela? McDonald’s has been forced to suspend sales of Big Macs in the country because it can’t source one of the burger’s key components.

While the company is working to resolve the problem, it will continue to offer menu options such as the Quarter Pounder and a cheeseburger called the McNífica.

… Venezuela is deep into an economic crisis that’s turned into a humanitarian crisis with the country suffering from food shortages. Venezuelans flooded into Colombia on Sunday after the border was temporarily reopened, allowing them to buy basic foods and toiletries — rare commodities in their home country.

HITTING SNOOZE IN THE MORNING IS TERRIBLE FOR YOUR SLEEP _ Do you hit the snooze before getting out of bed? Most people will snooze at least once but it turns out that this could be doing far more harm than good. Those extra five minutes after you hit snooze will interfere with your body’s process for waking up, according to researchers. They explain that alarms in general interrupt our natural sleep cycle and don’t allow us to wake properly, leaving you with that horrible groggy feeling known as sleep inertia.

… Throughout the day our sleep inertia will begin to lift and we function properly. However, if you fall back to sleep after snoozing, your body is likely to sleep more deeply than before, leaving your body even more confused when your alarm goes off again. Each time you hit the button, you’re bringing on more sleep inertia that slows your wake-up process each morning.

WOMAN DROVE FOR DAYS IN ALASKA WITH HUSBAND’S BODY IN CASKET _ A woman who drove her husband’s body around Alaska and used ice to keep him cold is not accused of breaking any laws. Officers responded to a call last week to find the body of a 78-year-old man inside an aluminum transport casket. Officers say the woman stopped at canneries for ice to put in the truck bed during the “rolling wake.” The man had died of natural causes. A mortuary took custody of the body after the authorities were called.

This is what Australian (North Melbourne) resident Mark Anderson says happened to him when signs were switched without warning. Anderson lives nearby and says he has had a permit to park in the spot for the past seven years.

WACKY-BUT-TRUE: PASSENGER RIPS PLANE’S OVERHEAD CABIN PANEL OFF _ A plane bound for Bangkok, Thailand, was delayed from taking off from Hong Kong’s international airport after a bit of drama during boarding. An unidentified passenger from Hong Kong who was trying to find space to stow his luggage was unhappy that configuration of the plane meant there weren’t any lockers above his seat. Despite flight attendants telling him that they’d find storage space for him elsewhere, the passenger refused to believe them. He then tried to open a storage bin but ripped the roof panel open with his bare hands. All he was met with was a gaping hole and shock from his fellow passengers. All the passengers had to get off the plane for three hours while engineers made repairs. The man wasn’t charged with anything and was allowed back on the flight with everyone else. • IMAGE

While the tabloid doesn’t have a specific date for when this supposedly occurred, it claims Paltrow publicly blasted her son and daughter while going through immigration at the airport.

MUSICIANS TELL TRUMP: STOP USING OUR MUSIC _ At least nine recording artists have publicly demanded that Donald Trump stop blasting their songs over public address systems during the GOP presidential campaign. The diversity of musicians who’ve told trump to stop range from British pop superstar Adele to American rockers Aerosmith.

… Whether or not a song can be played to support a campaign depends on more than the artist’s personal preference. The not-for-profit American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers — more commonly known as ASCAP — explains that most major venues hold a “blanket license” that allows the non-dramatic public performance of licensed, recorded music.

ASCAP notes that some venues, such as convention centers, hotels and sports arenas exclude the use of their license for political campaign purposes. If and when this happens, ASCAP says it is then up to the campaign to obtain proper performance permission from one or more of the agencies that license music in the United States.

… Taking it one step further, Lohan then posted a snap of Tarabasov at a party and wrote, “Wow thanks #fiance with Russian hooker @dasha_pa5h.” Lohan tagged Dasha Pashevkina, the creative director of the fashion line PA5H and a friend of Lindsay and her family.

… Lohan then continued her allegations against Tarabasov and Pashevkina by posting a video of her fiancé partying with the caption, “Home? First time in my life-bare with me/he cheated on me with hooker.”
