home/health & living health center/nutrition, food & recipes a-z list/probiotics center /probiotics article The idea that bacteria are beneficial can be tough to understand. We take antibiotics to kill harmful bacterial infections and use antibacterial soaps and lotions more than ever. The wrong bacteria in the wrong place can cause problems, but the right bacteria in the right place can have benefits. This is where probiotics come in. Probiotics are live microorganisms that may be able to help prevent and treat some illnesses. Promoting a healthy digestive tract and a healthy immune system are their most widely studied benefits at this time. These are also commonly known as friendly, good, or healthy bacteria. Probiotics can be supplied through foods, beverages, and dietary supplements. The root of the word probiotic comes from the Greek word pro, meaning “promoting,” and biotic, meaning “life.” The discovery of probiotics came about in the early 20th century, when Elie Metchnikoff, known as the “father of probiotics,” had observed that rural dwellers in Bulgaria lived to very old ages despite extreme poverty and harsh climate. He the...

5 Ways to Reduce Scrap and Rework in Your Manufacturing Processes Register ico-close ico-supplier ico-white-paper-case-study ico-product ico-cad

Welcome to Thomas Insights — every day, we publish the latest news and analysis to keep our readers up to date on what’s happening in industry. Sign up here to get the day’s top stories delivered straight to your inbox. Scrap and rework in manufacturing are generally seen as an unavoidable and expensive part of doing business. But with careful planning, manufacturers can minimize the bottom-line impacts of materials costs and wasted labor. But first, some definitions: “scrap” refers to materials left over from product manufacturing and may range from metal shavings to whole parts. Scrap is different from “waste” in the sense that it is recyclable and therefore has some monetary value. “Rework” happens when an inspected part is found to be non-conforming, defective, or failed and must be disassembled, repaired, replaced, or reassembled. Damage to parts can occur during transit or whenever manual handling occurs, so it’s a good idea to use automation to limit physical contact with parts as much as possible – particularly delicate parts that will be damaged if dropped. Mike Lynch, the founder of CNC Concepts, points out that “excessive scrap-causing mistakes should be a...

9 of the best stand mixers including the Kitchen Aid Artisan The Telegraph Search Icon Save Facebook icon Twitter icon Instagram icon LinkedIn icon Facebook icon Twitter icon Instagram icon LinkedIn icon

The iconic KitchenAid food mixer is said to have got its name in 1918 when prototype models were given to the wives of factory executives in Ohio, who declared it the best “kitchen aid” they’d ever had.  KitchenAid mixers saw such a high demand that in the late 1930s the factory would completely sell out each Christmas as eager bakers hurried to get their hands on one. It has a sturdy exterior, a pleasingly retro design, and can be used for everything from cake batter to bread dough (the KitchenAid is also an excellent bread mixer).  But, nearly a century on from their debut, are KitchenAid food mixers still the best around – or are there better models on offer? Is Kenwood better than KitchenAid?  And whether you’re on a budget or willing to spend a little extra, what are the most important things to look for in a stand mixer?  To help you decide which device to invest in for your kitchen, we have reviewed some of the best stand mixers on the market. The KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer exudes style and quality but, like other KitchenAid products, it’s an investment which comes at a price. If you’re prepared to pay more than £500 for the ...

DreamCase converts Teslas into camping tents using the trunk as a bed

DreamCase is challenging the need for camper vans by creating their eponymous product: a suitcase-esque capsule filled with bedding items that can turn the trunk of your car into a camping “tent.” The idea for the DreamCase was born after its founder William Frost laid in the back of his Tesla watching the sunrise in Monte Carlo after a long night, Frost told Business Insider. Camping Cookware Set Suppliers for Sale “The previous evening I had been on a ‘life hack’ mission to see how I could spend an evening in one of the world’s most expensive places with only four resources at hand(:) Tesla Model S, $1,000 Suit, 50 Euros and a home-made sleeping solution for my car,” Frost said. The company was established in 2016 and formally launched in 2017. Five weeks after the release of DreamCase, Tesla updated the Model S and X with “Camper Mode.” This mode maintains climate control and air filtration throughout the night and has ignited a popular subculture of Tesla campers in the community of EV owners, Bloomberg reported. “We aim to inspire people to find adventure on the road less travelled, to go and see what’s over ...

Studies Evaluate Health Effects of Dental Amalgam Fillings in Children

Scientists supported by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), part of the National Institutes of Health, report in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association the results of the first-ever randomized clinical trials to evaluate the safety of placing amalgam fillings, which contain mercury, in the teeth of children. Both studies — one conducted in Europe, the other in the United States — independently reached the conclusion: Children whose cavities were filled with dental amalgam had no adverse health effects. The findings included no detectable loss of intelligence, memory, coordination, concentration, nerve conduction, or kidney function during the 5-7 years the children were followed. The researchers looked for measurable signs of damage to the brain and kidneys because previous studies with adults indicated these organs might be especially sensitive to mercury. The authors noted that children in both studies who received amalgam, informally known as “silver fillings,” had slightly elevated levels of mercury in their urine. But after several years of analysis, they determined the mercury levels remained low and did not correlate with a...

Relativity hiring 190 people as it prepares to use 3D printing to make rockets

HANCOCK COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) – Hancock County is soon to be home to a 3D printing rocket factory.

Implementing autocompletion in a React Material UI application [Tutorial]

Web applications typically provide autocomplete input fields when there are too many choices to select from. Autocomplete fields are like text input fields—as users start typing, they are given a smaller list of choices based on what they’ve typed. Once the user is ready to make a selection, the actual input is filled with components called Chips—especially relevant when the user needs to be able to make multiple selections. In this article, we will start by building an Autocomplete component. Then we will move on to implementing multi-value selection and see how to better serve the autocomplete data through an API. To help our users better understand the results we will also implement a feature that highlights the matched portion of the string value. Material-UI doesn’t actually come with an Autocomplete component. The reason is that, since there are so many different implementations of autocomplete selection components in the React ecosystem already, it doesn’t make sense to provide another one. Instead, you can pick an existing implementation and augment it with Material-UI components so that it can integrate nicely with your Material-UI application. You can use the Select co...

When a well-intentioned study led to a dubious DNA test for same-sex attraction, it exposed the

When a well-intentioned study led to a dubious DNA test for same-sex attraction, it exposed the need for safeguards on research in the age of big genetic data. In late spring 2017, Andrea Ganna approached his boss, Ben Neale, with a pitch: He wanted to investigate the genetics of sexuality. Neale hesitated. One of the top geneticists in the country, Neale and his colleagues at the Broad Institute, a pioneering biotech hub in Boston, had a decade earlier developed software that made it much easier for scientists to study the vast amounts of genetic data that were beginning to flood in. It was the kind of tool that helped illuminate a person’s risk of developing, say, heart disease or diabetes. And now, as Ganna was proposing, the approach could be applied to the foundations of behavior, personality, and other social traits that in the past had been difficult to study. Ganna wanted to pounce on a new opportunity. A giant collection of carefully cataloged genomes, called the UK Biobank, was about to become available to researchers. A scientist could apply and then gain access to data from 500,000 British citizens—the largest public repository of DNA on the planet. To Ganna, the gen...
