Image
 Currently, Apple's invention only applies to the United States, but it will eventually be used globally. Use your smartphone to quickly scan a QR code to activate the new virtual SIMs.. Apple is back at it. The Cupertino business retires the physical SIM after ordering the death of the floppy disk and the compact disk. The slot that currently houses them will be eliminated in the upcoming Apple devices. With the release of the new iPhone 14, 14Plus, 14Pro, and 14Pro Max, which will be available in the United States, the uniqueness was announced. They will only be able to use an eSIM or virtual sim; physical SIM insertion will no longer be an option. The eSIM perform the same function as the traditional ones: they allow a device to use mobile networks but being virtual they are integrated directly into the device. Simply scan a QR code with your smartphone to activate them. This code needs to be saved because it serves as the SIM's official identification. Apple underlined the

Starch-rich potatoes can be helpful in weight loss

Image
People who want to lose weight, experts usually tell them to avoid foods rich in carbohydrates,  but now scientists believe that starch-rich potatoes can be helpful in weight loss. Scientists say that this happens because people eat the same amount of food at the time of eating that fills their stomach, without thinking about how many calories they have gained in this food. According to the researchers, people who add potatoes to their food, which are rich in carbohydrates and are heavy, fill their stomachs quickly, so doing so prevents them from eating more calories after filling their stomachs. Every 100 grams of potatoes contains about 80 calories. This amount is more than double the calories present in vegetables like carrots or broccoli. But potatoes and bread, pasta and rice are eaten in equal quantities, it contains half the calories compared to these things. In this case, the researchers also pointed out that the method of cooking potatoes is also very

Green leafy vegetables can prevent memory loss in old age

Image
  A new study has found that people who eat or drink foods high in flavonol can avoid complaining of rapid memory loss in old age.   Flavonol is a compound present in certain fruits and vegetables, including cabbage, tomatoes, apples, and oranges. Dr Thomas M Holland, lead author of the study published in the Journal of Neurology of the American Academy of Neurology, said that simple steps like eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking more tea can be an easy way to keep your brain healthy. The study found that people who were given green leafy vegetables on average seven times a week or once a day saw a 32 percent lower rate of decline in their brain performance. Thomas Holland said that changes in diet and lifestyle in early life could potentially have better effects. The reason for this is the changes in the brain that start 10 to 20  years before the clinical symptoms of Alzheimer's appear. He, however, emphasized that healthy be

The study is based on a meta-analysis published in 2020 that analysed nine previous studies, includ

Common habit of today's youth which can cause hearing loss

Image
Nowadays the use of air or headphones with smartphones is very common, as a result of which more than a billion young people are at risk of hearing loss. This warning has emerged in a new medical study/ File Photo This warning came out in a new medical study. The study, published in the journal BMJ Global Health, estimated that 24 percent of people aged 12 to 34 listen to headphones, earphones, earbuds or music at an unsafe volume level in different places. The World Health Organization (WHO) said in 2019 that young people's hearing power is at risk due to devices such as smartphones, headphones and earphones. The study found that listening to music at an unsafe volume level only once can damage hearing power, while doing so repeatedly causes changes in hearing. According to researchers, this habit can lead to hearing loss over time. During the research, the habit of listening to music around the world was examined. For this purpose, the res

Smartphones can make you sick

Image
People touch their smartphone more than 2,000 times a day on average and this habit can also make them sick by suffering from various allergies.   This claim came out in a new medical study. Research from Boston Children's Hospital in the UNITED States found that smartphones prove to be the home of allergy-causing materials and the best way to avoid this is often cleaning the phones. Research has shown that smartphones become home to allergy-causing agents such as fungi and pet bacteria. In this study, researchers in different smartphone models discovered increased levels of allergy-causing elements such as Beta-Glucans (BDG) and endotoxin. BDGs are found in fungal cells and cause chronic respiratory tract diseases, the researchers said. The study said that if a person suspects allergies or has asthma, they should clean their smartphone frequently to avoid allergies or asthma attacks. Researchers said that research proves that when allergy-ca

Criminals are waiting to sign contracts in your name using a picture from your identification card.

 Sharing a picture of your ID with others is risky. According to federal police's Christophe Van Bortel, a cybercrime expert, in the podcast "The hour of truth" and on Radio 1. Criminals use these images, among other things, to apply for loans or telecom subscriptions in your name. How can I avoid falling for the trap? And if you are a victim, what can you do?   The front and back of an identity document are often copied or photographed by thieves, according to Christophe Van Bortel in "The hour of truth." "This could be anything from a passport, driver's license, or identity card. To open bank accounts or apply for telecom subscriptions, they use someone's data. Identity fraud, according to Van Bortel, typically occurs at particular times. The Antwerp district police have received more reports over the last two years, particularly in the autumn. "The months from September to January are covered. We are unable to immediately explain why that

Injuries to a child - time is of the essence

Image
 Young children frequently sustain wounds and contusions. It makes sense considering how curious and active children are. In the open air, they adore running, jumping, and acting silly. They must not deprive them of this joy, but it is worthwhile to be ready for even the most challenging circumstances.   An accident or injury to a child can occur anywhere. In the stairwell, the kindergarten, the nursery, and the backyard, they can be altered indefinitely. Regardless, the most important factor is the time at which the child will be assisted.   Obviously, not all injuries necessitate immediate medical attention. For minor scrapes and bruises, a home first aid kit and parental attention will suffice. A cold compress, bandage, and ointment for bruises will come in handy in such circumstances.   In the case of severe injuries to the limbs and head, the situation differs. Such occurrences typically necessitate medical consultation, sutures, and X-rays. Particularly when the child compl

Ear inflammation - how to relieve the child and not harm him?

Image
 One of the most prevalent inflammatory diseases in children is acute otitis media. According to statistics, up to 60% of infants under the age of one have experienced such inflammation. In this age group, it is the cause of every fourth pediatric visit. What can you do if your child develops this issue?   Most cases of acute otitis media start out with symptoms that are typical of different viral infections, such as ear pain, coughing, fever, or runny nose.   Infants and older kids with ear infections may experience discharge, anxiety, increased crying, lack of appetite, sleep disturbances, vomiting, or diarrhea. Some people also experience hearing loss, tinnitus, or headaches. However, the majority of illnesses are painful, which is very difficult for kids.   The steps to take in the event of otitis   Call your pediatrician first if you think you might have otitis media. The use of painkilling analgesics and anti-inflammatory medications is a common course of action in this s

Learning to speak: 5 tips on how you can support your baby

Image
 When your baby first begins to speak, the first "Ma-ma" or "Da-da" is still a random sound, but it still serves as the signal to begin speaking properly. We'll go over how you can use this to support your child.   Babies try to talk for the first time at a very young age. At three to six months, they are already babbling and giggling to themselves, sometimes loudly and sometimes very quietly. All of these noises and sounds are already getting them ready to talk.   You can even hear correct syllables like "da," "ma," and "na" at some point. The moment that mom and dad have been waiting for so long comes all at once. The baby makes noises that sound like "Mama" or "Mamamamamamama."   It works a little earlier with one baby and a little later with the other. Even if your baby says "mommy" or "dad" for the first time by accident and doesn't know what the word means, it's a magical m

Why do electric vehicles catch fire and why are they so hard to put out?

Image
 Recently, there has been a sharp increase in interest in electric vehicles. Therefore, it is not surprising that as more and more electric cars are introduced to the road globally, users are beginning to experience a variety of issues. Hard to put out fires is one of them. Photo by David Henry: Pexels.com   As with the introduction of any new technology, there are often more questions than there are answers when it comes to electric cars .  The fire risk posed by lithium-ion batteries is one of the most challenging issues, and it has a very negative impact on the rate of adoption of electric cars because it raises concerns among buyers.  Everyone is aware that gasoline and fire are dangerous when combined, but the situation is less clear when it comes to electric batteries.  Nearly everything uses lithium-ion batteries, including remote-controlled cars, drones, smartphones, cordless shavers, and even home solar energy storage systems. Consequently, it is reasonable to assume tha

Hand numbness can indicate serious health problems

Image
 Numbness can be a harmless symptom, but it can also indicate serious problems (myocardial ischemia, stroke, herniated disc, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.), In the event that your hands become numb, you should see a neurologist, who can, if necessary, refer you to other medical professionals. In order to identify the disease's underlying causes, radiography, electromyography, magnetic resonance, and computed tomography may be required. Fingers on the limbs can become numb due to a lack of B vitamins in the body or as a result of drinking large amounts of alcohol.

Fatigue fracture - what it is and how it occurs

Image
 Bone fracture from overload www.t-online.de You run the risk of developing a stress fracture if you overwork any part of your body for an extended period of time. Here, you can learn more about what it is and how the bone functions.   A sudden and severe shock, such as can happen in an accident, is not always the reason for a bone to break. If the bone is subjected to strains repeatedly over an extended period of time, even minor strains can result in fractures.   The bone eventually becomes brittle from the constant and excessive application of force, "tires" to some extent and loses stability as a result, and eventually breaks. Stress fractures are the name for this kind of bone fracture. Another term used in technical speak is stress fracture.   What is a stress fracture? A stress fracture is a bone fracture that results from constant overloading of the bone. Particularly prevalent in sports involving prolonged stress on the feet or legs, such as jogging, hiking, a

Impressive display and battery: The Xiaomi Poco F4 at a Glance

 The Xiaomi Poco F4 is impressive due to its powerful battery and good display, but the camera and other components could be improved.  Snapdragon® 870 with 5G 120Hz 6.67” AMOLED DotDisplay 64MP main camera with OIS 67W turbo charging Snapdragon® 870 with 5G 120Hz 6.67” AMOLED DotDisplay 64MP main camera with OIS 67W turbo charging The Snapdragon 870 processor in the Xiaomi Poco F4 is more than adequate for daily use. Good news for gamers: 55 frames per second allows for casual gaming. Additionally available are Wi-Fi 6 (ax-WLAN), Bluetooth 5.2, and a dual SIM slot with support for 5G. Unfortunately, there is no SD card slot, so the 128 GB internal memory cannot be increased. Protection from water and dust is also lacking. The Xiaomi Poco F4's 6.7-inch OLED display is impressive: The display offers a refresh rate of 120 Hertz in addition to a Full HD resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) and decent sharpness of about 400 ppi.

Three good reasons: Why you should switch off your smartphone at night

Image
 Many smartphones stay on all the time and only turn off when the battery runs out. In fact, both the phone and its users will live longer if the phone is turned off every night before bed. We'll show you why this is also true in the next section. Photo by Miriam Alonso: pexels.com   Extend cell phone lifespan   Most people don't use their cell phones at night. Instead, they put them on standby or charge them and leave them on their nightstands while they sleep.   When lithium-ion batteries are charged for too long, like overnight, it hurts them and makes them less powerful. Even if the phone isn't plugged in to the charger but is just sitting on the nightstand in idle mode, it still uses power. This could be because the phone is always connected to the cell tower or because apps are running in the background. Because of this, the cell phone needs to be charged more often.   But many smartphones can only be charged a certain number of times before the battery's

Progressive glasses - clarity of sight at any distance

Image
 How do you read at a distance? Do you slide your glasses over your forehead or the tip of your nose and look at nearby objects without them? Or do you carry two pairs of glasses with you - one for on-the-street use and one for in-store shopping? Photo by Dominika Roseclay: Pexels.com   Presbyopia or "old-sightedness," usually occurs after the age of 40. People suffering from presbyopia keep the object of the activity away from their eyes. It can make it difficult to read books, check messages on a phone or file nails with a nail file.   They have to change their glasses depending on how far they are looking. For example, to check the timetable at a stop, they remove the "minuses" and put the "pluses" in.   Instead of two pairs of glasses - progressive glasses   New technologies make it possible to incorporate different powers in one lens. They are glasses that allow you to see smoothly and clearly at any distance. These are glasses with progressiv

Sleep deprivation can cause blindness

Image
 Research suggests that glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness, could affect 112 million people around the world over the next 20 years. This is because people who have very short sleep durations, are sleepy during the day, and snore.   Sky News says that glaucoma is marked by the loss of light-sensitive cells in the eye and damage to the optic nerve. If the disease is not treated, this can lead to a gradual loss of vision. A study that was published in the journal BMJ Open found a number of signs that poor sleep and glaucoma are linked.   First, the eye's internal pressure, which is the main cause of the disease, goes up when a person lies down or when their sleep hormones aren't working right.   Depression and anxiety, which often go along with not getting enough sleep, can also make this pressure worse because they can make it harder to control how much cortisol, the main stress hormone in the body, is released.   Sleep apnea, in which breathing stops and starts du

Experts FOUND the best method for preventing malaria.

Image
 Experts from Africa and the United States assert to have found the newest and most potent anti-malaria medication available today, which can offer up to 6 months of malaria protection.   Despite the fact that there are currently other medications and vaccines for the treatment and prevention of malaria, more than 600,000 people worldwide still die from the disease each year, and another two to two and a half million contract it. Malaria affects people all over the world, but it is more common in Africa than Asia. Following the bite of a specific mosquito, malaria develops and infects the patient for two to three weeks.   According to the 'Associated Press' (AP), African and American specialists treated malaria-infected patients using antibodies created in the laboratory by the US National Institute of Health (NIH). The most innovative and effective method ever discovered.   Experts from the United States have created new antibodies in the laboratory using antibodies extr

5 myths about urinary tract infections. Don't ignore it or you'll get nephritis

 Urinary tract infections are diseases that affect women more often, and this is due to the differences in the structure of organs that occur in both sexes. However, men are also at risk of suffering from urinary infections. And their consequences can lead to serious health problems such as nephritis, so we should never ignore them.   Nephritis is a disease in which the tissues in the kidneys become inflamed and can't filter waste out of the blood as well as they should. Nephritis can be caused by infections, conditions that make the body inflamed (like lupus), some genetic conditions, and other diseases or health problems.   Urinary tract infections happen when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra. These bacteria often come from the skin or the area around the anus. Women often get urinary tract infections because the urethra in women is shorter and closer to the anus. Cystitis is the most common type of infection of the urinary tract.   Even though not all u
