How to Recognize the Hay Fever Monster

by Tessa on July 28, 2014

Weeds, grass pollen, and birch pollen as well as spores of molds and fungi cause hay fever. Medicines relieve nasal and eye symptoms, and nasal drops and sprays can be of help. The problem is that the symptoms of hay fever are similar to flue and cold, including sinus pressure, runny nose, and sneezing. How to tell the difference? Cold and flu are caused by different viruses while airborne particles cause allergic rhinitis. And some symptoms are typical for hay fever but not present if you have flu. Like red, sore, and itchy eyes. Allergen exposure is one factor that determines the frequency. But if you have a sudden onset, hay fever might be the culprit.

Effective web design takes into account eye movement for enhanced user experience and interaction. Newspapers, magazines, billboards, and websites combine different elements that draw the human eye. But visual attention patterns are different for women and men. When watching a baseball game, women focus on the face while men – on the face and torso. Eye tracking is useful when it comes to advertising. But there is more. Eye tracking technologies have been developed to help users with disabilities. New technologies use cells, buttons, and control keys to help users generate speech and communicate more effectively. By predicting the user’s gaze, these technologies help people with various disabilities, including muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and brain damage.

You Think You Like Soda? Think Again

by Tessa on July 21, 2014

Sugar, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose – You can find them all in your favorite soda drink. Ever wondered what is the leading cause of Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Liver Disease? – well it’s the soft drinks we all love so much.

Unlike the fructose in fruits which occurs naturally the large amount that we consume when drinking soda is making us ill. Fructose is the silent killer.

Baby Steps toward Getting Rid of Debt

by Tessa on July 17, 2014

According to a survey by Statistics Canada, there are some 202,200 cooks and 131,000 carpenters in Canada. How comes? It is simple. Real estate prices are soaring. And the gap between income level and real estate prices has widened over the last years, which explains why many Canadians are in a lot of debt. But there is hope on the horizon. Debt to disposable income, which is a major indicator, has improved slightly, showing that Canadians are making financial baby steps toward prudent debt management. It seems that we are getting better at exerting self-control to get the bonus marshmallow from the famous Stanford study of the 60s. And national net worth has increased.

3D printing is a technology that allows us to create three-dimensional objects and customizable products. Methods such as laser sintering, rapid prototyping, and fused deposition modeling are used to create replicas, bionic ears, Lego pieces, and even dinosaur bones. This is not all. 3D printers allow us to design spare parts for appliances. For your dishwasher, for example. This can come as a surprise, but there are companies that make fetus figurines. They use pictures or 4D or 3D ultrasound to create a figurine of your unborn child. Some people love the idea, others find it creepy. In any case, this is a realistic representation and unique gift by any means. And so are monkey handbags and inflatable flowers.

Silver is used to make superconductors, switches, electronic devices, strong alloys, and a lot more. While silver has been mined for millennia, new technologies have led to a rapid rise in production volumes. New technologies such as haulage, mine dewatering, and steam-assisted drilling allow miners to extract large amounts of silver. This is good news because silver plays an important role in medicine. It is used in treatments and technologies that help eliminate antibiotic-resistant germs and reduce the risk for surgical infections. Silver is used in medicine because of its biocidal effects on viruses, fungus, and bacteria. Silver-infused products are used in hospital settings and beyond, helping us fight killer super bugs.
