New medical devices

New medical devices: The company is working on a transdermal biosensor that reads blood analytes through the skin without drawing blood.
 The technology involves a handheld electric-toothbrush-like device that removes just enough top-layer skin cells to put the patient's blood chemistry within signal range of a patch-borne biosensor. The sensor collects one reading per minute and sends the data wirelessly to a remote monitor, triggering audible alarms when levels go out of the patient's optimal range and tracking glucose levels over time.Diabetes self-care is a pain—literally.
 It brings the constant need to draw blood for glucose testing, the need for daily insulin shots and the heightened risk of infection from all that poking. 
Continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps are today's best options for automating most of the complicated daily process of blood sugar management – but they don't completely remove the need for skin pricks and shots. But there's new skin in this game. Echo Therapeutics(Philadelphia, PA) is developing technologies that would replace the poke with a patch.

Chinese mythology

Image result for chinese mythology storiesChinese mythology holds that the Jade Emperor was charged with running of the three realms: heaven, hell, and the realm of the living. The Jade Emperor adjudicated and meted out rewards and remedies to saints, the living, and the deceased according to a merit system loosely called the Jade Principles Golden Script. When proposed judgments were objected to, usually by other saints, the administration would occasionally resort to the counsels of advisory elders.The dozens of ethnic minority groups of the country of China have their own languages and their own folklore, and many have their own writing: much of which contains valuable historical and cultural information as well as many unique myths.
 Some myths are widely shared across multiple ethnic groups, but may exist as versions with some differences.
Historians have written evidence of Chinese mythological symbolism from the 12th century BC in the Oracle bone script. Legends were passed down for over a thousand years before being written in books such as Classic of Mountains and Seas. Other myths continued to be passed down through oral traditions like theater and song before being recorded as novels such as Epic of Darkness.
Chinese mythology refers to those myths found in the historical geographic area of China: these include myths in Chinese and other languages, as transmitted by Han Chinese as well as other ethnic groups (of which fifty-six are officially recognized by the current administration of China).Chinese mythology includes creation myths and legends, such as myths concerning the founding of Chinese culture and the Chinese state. As in many cultures' mythologies, Chinese mythology has in the past been believed to be, at least in part, a factual recording of history. Thus, in the study of historical Chinese culture, many of the stories that have been told regarding characters and events which have been written or told of the distant past have a double tradition: one which presents a more historicized and one which presents a more mythological version....

The treatment

Pomegranate extract was given to mice with a genetic proneness towards spontaneous coronary artery blockages through drinking water for two weeks, when they had three weeks of age. The treatment reduced both the proportion of the coronary arteries with occlusive atherosclerotic plaques and the size of the atherosclerotic plaques in the aortic sinus (the dilated opening above the aortic valve), despite the fact that pomegranate treatment actually increased cholesterol levels associated with very low density lipoprotein-sized particles.
What really surprised the researchers,were the other beneficial effects of the pomegranate extract treatment:
-Reduced monocytie chemotactic protein-1, a chemical messenger (chemokine) associated with inflammatory processes within the arteries.
-Reduced levels of monocyte chemotactic protein-1 and fibrosis in the myocardium
-Reduced macrophage infiltration in the heart muscle

-Reduced lipid accumulation in the heart muscle
-Reduced ECG abnormalities
-Reduced levels of oxidative stress
-Reduced cardiac enlargement
They asked themselves, how can something as commonplace and benign as a fruit extract reverse so many aspects of coronary artery disease, simultaneously, as it was evidenced by the study above? They say that the answer might be found in the fact that our ancestors evolved together with certain foods (fruits in particular) for so long that a lack of adequate quantities of these foods may directly result in deteriorating organ function. The journal Atherosclerosis published an interesting study in which they confirm that pomegranate extract may reverse or/and prevent the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality: the accumulation of fatty materials on the coronary arteries known as atherosclerosis.What really surprised the researchers,were the other beneficial effects of the pomegranate extract treatment: Reduced lipid accumulation in the heart muscle Reduced ECG abnormalities Reduced levels of oxidative stress Reduced cardiac enlargement Reduced monocytie chemotactic protein-1, a chemical messenger associated with inflammatory processes within the arteries.

Caboki for hair loss

Caboki concealer follows basically the same principle as other shake-on concealers like Toppik and Nanofibres. The dispensers are full of millions of tiny microfibers that cling to your real hair. This has the effect of making you appear like you have more hair than you actually have.
For best results, shampoo and dry your with a blow dryer or let it air-dry completely. Style your hair as usual. Don't use hair gel or hair spray before the applications. Hold the bottle above the thinning area and tilt it at about 45 degree, Gently shake or tap the bottle with fingers to dispense fibers onto the thinning area.
Caboki is a breakthrough product for hair loss sufferers that
    Fotografija Adne Omanovic.
  1. Instantly eliminates bald spots or appearance of thinning hair.
  2. Gives you a perfectly natural look. No one will know you're using Caboki unless you tell them - even if they get a close up view, outdoor, under bright sun light.
  3. Last all day, all night, through wind, rain and sweat.
  4. Will not smear or stain your skin or clothing.
  5. Works for both men and women.
Caboki claims to counteract this problem by using a plant material called Moroccan Gossypium Herbaceum instead of wool. Crucially this plant fiber carries a negative charge, and should therefore cause the concealer to cling to your real hair in a much more reliable fashion.

Hitler and His Impact on Fashion

Hitler's father Alois Hitler was an example of men's fashions prior to World War I when he sported a typical full moustache (pictured on the right).

Everyone knows Hitler by his dorky greasy hair, parted on the side, but mostly by the little moustache we've all come to think of as denoting someone of an evil nature.

But what we don't know is that before World War I, Adolf Hitler himself wore a full moustache as was fashionable at the time, possibly following the example of his father.

Adolf Hitler with his
original moustache
It was only during the first world war when he was a private, that Adolf Hitler trimmed his moustache to the recognisable one we know today, after he was commanded to do so by a Superior Officer. The logic behind the smaller moustache was that it would enable him to more easily fit on a gas mask should there be an attack. The smaller moustache become popular with the lower classes, perhaps as a rebellion to those in the upper classes who favoured the fuller moustache.
Hitler in the early 1920s

Hitler's moustache, more commonly known as the toothbrush moustache, has remained a controversial fashion piece, though there are some who still prefer the symmetry and neatness of the style, eg the former Ecuadorian President Abdalá Bucaram wore one in more recent times.

Charlie Chaplin became famous for his mimicry of Hitler and he continued to wear the shorter style on camera. The Irish writer James Joyce also started wearing the style in the 1920s and continued to do so until his death.

Ultimately Hitler's impact on fashion is that we are unlikely to ever see the toothbrush moustache gain a resurgence in fashion history, because too many people associate the look with Hitler and with evil.

In a way we can be thankful that Hitler didn't continue wearing the more full moustache as was favoured during World War I, because if he had, today we might have come to associate the fuller moustache with Hitler rather than the smaller, toothbrush style. 

The impact on fashion during the 1960s and 70s would have been that hippy guys would have had to aspire to either enormous handlebar moustaches, a pencil moustache or the toothbrush moustache, all of which would have looked just plain silly with a full beard and/or a hippy headband.
