LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Here are five things to know before you go to bed on Jan. 21, 2022.

A toppled statue

A Statue of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon was torn down in Puerto Rico hours before a scheduled visit from Felipe VI.

It’s not clear who toppled the statue but it’s considered a U.S. national historic landmark.
Ponce de Leon landed in Puerto Rico with Christopher Columbus in 1493.

He later became the island’s first governor.

Secret finances

A survey conducted by creditcards.com showed nearly one-third of U.S. couples admit to financially cheating on each other.
Of those surveyed, 15% admitted to spending more than their partners would be okay with, 9% said they have secret debt, and around another 9% keep a secret credit card or savings account.

Lightning

Scientists said COVID-19 lockdowns may be decreasing the amount of lightning in our atmosphere.

Researchers said lockdowns decreased pollution and that has reduced the number of aerosols in the air.

Which in turn reduces conditions that create lightning. Global lightning activity decreased about 8% in 2020.

Donuts

Krispy Kreme is thanking blood donors with a sweet treat.

Those who donate blood or platelets can get a free box of Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts from now through Jan. 31.

To take advantage of the promotion, you’ll need to show either your donation sticker or red cross confirmation of donation.

The red cross said donors of all blood types are “Urgently needed”.

Shopping Spree

A New Jersey toddler went on a shopping spree with his mom’s cellphone and bought more than $17,000 worth of furniture from Walmart.

It happened to the Kumar family from Middlesex County, New Jersey.

The family’s youngest boy, just 22 months old, began clicking away on his mom’s phone while she had the Walmart App open.

The family only realized what happened when they started getting huge packages in the mail. The Kumar’s said they are very grateful for Walmart’s return policy.
