WIKY Morning Show Nov. 3rd
** Justin Bieber has been accused of fathering a child with a 20-year-old woman. Here's the report from Fox News:
** So, of course the late night comedians had a field day with that news, including Jimmy Kimmel!
** Kris Jenner has a new autiobiography out, so she's making the talk show rounds. She was on "The View" chatting about that and also her daughter Kim Kardashian's divorce.
** Kim Kardashian spoke out yesterday, saying that her marriage wasn't a sham. (Kind of hard to believe since it only lasted 72, days.....just sayin'). Here's a clip:
** Lindsay Lohan had her day in court (I know...one of many) and the judge ordered her to serve time in jail:
** Lindsay still has to complete a LOT of community service, but it seems that nobody wants her....except the morgue!
** So, why do we absolutely hate the sound of fingernails on a blackboard? Well, there's scientific proof of why:
Odds are, you hate at least one, or maybe all four of these sounds: Nails on a chalkboard . . . chalk on a chalkboard . . . a fork scraping against a plate . . . and Styrofoam squeaking.
A new study in Germany tried to figure out WHY we hate those sounds . . . and why they make our arm hair stand up. And the researchers have an answer.
Those sounds are all in the range of 2,000 to 4,000 Hertz. Our ear canals are designed to amplify sounds in that range. So when we hear them, they're LOUDER on our ears than we realize . . . and that makes our brains think we're in DANGER.
That makes our arm hair stand up, because we're on high alert, which changes our blood pressure and the electrical conductivity of our skin. It also makes us hate those sounds, because we perceive them as dangerous.
** And we welcomed Evelyn Walker from the Evansville Public Library to chat about the One Book, One Community event. The book this year is "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society," by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Annie Barrows will be in town on Wednesday, November 16th at the Victory Theatre to talk about the book. The event is absolutely free, and Annie will also autograph your book if you want her to!
