The kids are in charge … According to a new study, kids are making the decisions about where to go on vacation. Researchers found that 70 percent of parents now consult their kids before deciding where to go for summer vacation. 40 percent of parents admitted to ignoring their kids’ wishes and choosing to go somewhere else – only to regret it later. More results: 90 percent of parents said they put the vacation happiness of their kids before their own happiness. 83 percent complained that their kids had no idea how lucky they were to be able to go on vacation.

When there’s free food at the office, can you say no to it? If you eat it -- even though you’re not hungry -- you are definitely not alone. Studies have found that if food is available and free, people are more likely to have some -- even when they’re not hungry. "It's a behavioral thing because when things are within reach and free, it's a double whammy that's extremely hard to resist," said Julie Devinsky, a clinical dietitian at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Party like it’s 1993 … Last year, the MillerCoors brewing company brought back Zima, the sort-of-sweet malt liquor beverage from the 1990s. They underestimated demand in a big way, selling out in two months and disappointing many who weren’t quick enough to get their hands on the stuff. Well, they’re going to try again, promising to brew more during another “limited release.” If all goes according to plan, it will be in stores this summer, so … act quickly if you want to take that trip down memory lane.

Sad songs say so much … According to a new study, pop music is getting sadder. Researchers analyzed 500,000 songs between 1985 and 2015 -- and categorized them according to their mood. It seems lyrics that include "happiness" and "brightness" are on the decline, while songs mentioning “sadness” are increasing. Strangely, though, the songs are becoming more danceable and more party-like. (Business Insider)
