The X-Factor and The Winner Is alum Thomas Wells has died in a work-related accident at an Oklahoma tire manufacturing plant, his wife Jessica Wells has announced. He was 46.
"It caused him to have no oxygen in his brain, which caused his body to kind of fail," Wells' grieving spouse told E! News Saturday about the mishap, a day after she announced his Nov. 13 death on Facebook.
Wells -- who also appeared on America's Got Talent and The Voice -- got caught in an automatic conveyer belt-type of machine, according to TMZ.

Having just ONE a day 'reduces the risk of having a stroke by 12%
Consuming just one egg a day reduces the risk of stroke by 12 percent, scientists say. US researchers reviewed a host of studies about eggs over 33 years. They discovered there was no association with coronary heart disease. One egg boasts 6 grams of high-quality protein and an array of vitamins.
Stressed spouse bad for your waistline
If your spouse is feeling stressed then you may want to watch your waistline, a new study suggests. Researchers found that your partner's stress, and not your own, predicted an increased waist circumference over time. The study also found that quality of marriage also seemed to play a role in whether husbands and wives fattened up. Wives were 1.6 times more likely to have an increase in waist circumference when their husbands reported greater stress and greater negative marriage quality. However husbands were more than twice as likely to have a 10 percent increase in waist size when their wives had greater stress but weren't complaining about marriage quality.
Women sleep better next to dogs than other people: study
Women sleep better next to dogs than their human partners, according to a study published this monthby researchers at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. Of the 962 women living in the U.S. interviewed by the school, 55 percent of them shared the bed with at least one dog and 31 percent of them shared the bed with at least one cat. The study found 57 percent of the women shared the bed with a human partner. Dogs were less likely to wake their owners in the middle of the night than cats and humans, results revealed. The study found that both cats and humans were equally disruptive to women’s sleep and provided them with fewer feelings of comfort and security than dogs. Dog owners also reported earlier sleep and wake times than cat owners and participants without pets.
Half of Americans don't see a problem with sneakily stealing items from someone else’s bathroom
Half of Americans don't think it’s a problem to sneakily steal someone else’s item from the bathroom.
According to a study two people have lied about using another person’s toiletries in a pinch ‒ and no product is completely off limits. Respondents admit to nicking all kinds of other bathroom items in a panic, like shampoo (51 percent), body moisturizer (38 percent) and facial cleanser (34 percent). Surprisingly, more people say it’s acceptable to borrow someone’s toothbrush than a razor, with 21 percent saying it’s okay to borrow a toothbrush, and only 19 percent say so for a razor.
Sixty percent of respondents think it’s not a big deal to take a peek in someone’s medicine cabinet and 55 percent even admitted to poking around in another’s toiletries.
Whoops I forgot
According to survey people often get in a pinch when traveling. Sixty-five percent have left a toiletry item behind when packing.
Eighty-seven percent would immediately pay for a new one – but not everyone is willing to shell out the money.
Over half of respondents (51 percent) think they could survive for a week without a toothbrush.
Two in five (42 percent) couldn’t stand the panic of leaving something behind and would have to borrow their missing item from their travel companion.
Respondents would trust enough to ask for a favor included partners (43 percent), siblings (36 percent) or friends (36 percent).
Not everyone sees sharing hygiene products as signs of affection though ‒ 35 percent think sharing a razor with a partner is “uncomfortable” and 36 percent would classify partners who share toothbrushes as “disgusting.”
The 'glow' of getting something for free can last as long as a week
The 'glow' of getting something for free can last as long as a week, according to new research. Unsurprisingly, nine in 10 of us love a good freebie and two-thirds reckon it provides a boost to their mental health. More than one in 20 adults claim they get a buzz from a free product seven days down the line, while a quarter said the feelings of satisfaction last for a few days.
The poll of adults found six in 10 feel the best things in life are free – citing a walk in the countryside, a good night’s sleep and waking up to sunshine as the things which impress the most. Others even claim ‘getting a freebie’ is better than ‘receiving a gift.’ While 31 per cent of adults said feeling healthy and fit are among the best ‘free’ things in life – although a resounding seven in 10 admitted to taking their good health for granted, with eye care, general mobility and a healthy heart most accepted without question. Half of us admit we would spend an average of 11 per cent more on a purchase if came with a freebie.

2021 marks 40 years since Nintendo’s Mario character first appeared in a video game. Before he was saving a princess and hunting for mushrooms, the mustachioed hero was known as “Jumpman”, a playable character in 1981’s Donkey Kong.
To mark the anniversary, YouGov took a looke at which countries are most likely to have played a Mario title in the last month.
Nearly one in five French consumers (18%) report playing one of a huge library of Mario titles in the past month, the highest of all the countries we looked at.
This figure is significantly more than among consumers in Germany (9.5%) and the United States (9%) but that still means that Mario has been part of life for one in ten Germans and Americans this month. Mario players are rarer in the UK where 2.8% of those we asked had played the character in the last 30 days.

Things Only Supermarket Employees Could Tell You
1. One of the most annoying things a customer can do is yell products at an employee like, “SOAP? PAPER TOWEL?? ORGANIC CAGE-FREE EGGS???”
2. That, and assume a person is working at a supermarket because they didn’t go to college.
3. Sundays at the supermarket are hell on earth.
4. And going into work the week of a holiday is like preparing for battle.
5. Unless it’s a higher-end grocery store, employees probably don’t get a discount.
6. There’s more to the job than standing at a register — most employees are cross-trained in multiple departments.
7. It’s impossible to memorize every produce code because there’s over a thousand of them.
8. When employees “check the back,” they’re usually just pretending.
9. Because sure, most products probably are in the back…stacked about 40 feet in the air, requiring a forklift that they’re not authorized to use.
10. Grocery store employees are surprisingly cliquey.
11. And the ones who have been there for a REALLY long time treat the younger kids like peasants.
12. There’s always one person who has the hot goss about all the interdepartmental relationships.
13. Fewer things are creepier than working an overnight shift.
14. Cashiers usually don’t notice what customers are buying, and they definitely don’t care.
15. The break room is a miserable place that reeks of the hot food bar and broken dreams.
16. And that stench lingers even after leaving the store.
17. Working at a supermarket usually involves standing for long periods of time, so skipping leg day isn’t a big deal.
18. And even though they work in a place that sells food, employees are just as likely to never know what they want to eat.
This Easy Trick Will Defrost Your Car Window In Seconds
Find an empty spray bottle that you can fill with this solution . Fill up a third of the bottle with water, and the other two-thirds with rubbing alcohol. Why does this work so well? Because rubbing alcohol actually has a freezing point of 128 degrees below freezing.
Experts suggest that if you fill up a sock with kitty litter and leave it in your car, it will suck up any moisture and avoid frost from attaching to your front windows. They also suggest using shaving cream when your car windows fog up, hand sanitizer to unfreeze your locks, and cooking spray on your doors. You could even cover your windshield wipers with socks to avoid freezing those out as well.
Never Leave a Candle Burning for This Long, Experts Warn
You could be putting yourself in danger if you let a candle go for too long. According to the experts at Good Light Candles, you should follow the manufacturer's instructions, but "as a rule of thumb, candles should not be allowed to burn for longer than four hours."
The experts at Good Light Candles explain that burning a candle for more than four hours allows carbon to collect on the wick, and that can make the candle unstable. "This can lead to a dangerously large flame, smoke and soot," they note. The most obvious consequence of an unruly flame is that fire spreading—but that's not the only problem with leaving your candle unattended for hours.

Over 1M unfilled jobs in Canada
The labour shortage is real: There were 1,014,600 job vacancies in Canada in September – roughly 6 per cent of all jobs – according to Statistics Canada. That's about 0.8 for every job seeker in the country, the highest since 2015, according to a labour economist at the University of Waterloo.

The problem is even more acute in the U.S., where there are 1.4 vacancies for every searcher.
