The Apple Watch Series 8 may be able to alert you to a major illness

After the Apple Watch Series 7 failed to bring any unique health or fitness advancements, a new rumor suggests this years watch could bring a new game-changing sensor that detects fevers. The news comes via Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, who back in April reported that Apple was planning to addbody-temperature detection to the next generation of Apple Watch . Gurman shared some more information about the new feature in his weekend Power On newsletter , unfortunately, it seems, the capabilities may not live up to peoples expectations. Gurman explains that the body-temperature detection wont give on-demand readings as you would expect with a thermometer. Instead, it will alert you if it thinks your body temperature is too high. The body-temperature feature wont give you a specific readinglike with a forehead or wrist thermometerbut it should be able to tell if it believes you have a fever, he wrote. The new Apple Watch SE will lack this feature. Fever detection could be a major new feature after more than two years of the coronavirus pandemic. Gurman previously reported that the body-temperature sensor could also be used to help women with fertility planning Other than the body-temperature reader, other hardware changes will probablybe minor, Gurman states, indicating that the processing power of the chip will be no better than that of the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 6. However, he does note that there may be a brighter display along with a previously rumored rugged version for extreme athletes. Gurman details some of the reasons why this years Apple Watch will not offer any major new features. He notes that Apples chip development team has been focused on the Mac chips at the expense of other areas, he also suggests that using the same Watch processor will help Apple keep costs down at a time when the company is being affected by rising inflation, the ongoing chip shortage, and manufacturing delays. Gurman also discusses the lack of new features coming to the second generation AirPods Pro in the same newsletter, as discussed here: Dont expect much from 2022 AirPods Pro Gurman .

Ash Gourd For Weight Loss: Consume this juice for weight loss! Know other merits

In the last 2 years, people's weight has increased a lot because after the coronavirus epidemic, due to the lockdown and work-from-home culture, the physical activities of the people have reduced significantly. Now it has become a challenge for them to get a flat tummy by reducing belly fat. Benefits Of Drinking White Petha Juice: In the last 2 years, people's weight has increased a lot because after the coronavirus epidemic, due to the lockdown and work-from-home culture, the physical activities of the people have reduced significantly. Now it has become a challenge for them to get a flat tummy by reducing belly fat. In this case, you can use white petha. This is the same vegetable from which the famous sweet called Petha is also prepared. White Petha is considered very beneficial for health as it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Nutrients like iron, niacin, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin C, phosphorus, and calcium are found in abundance in it. Benefits of drinking white petha juice: Dr. Ayushi Yadav, a famous dietician working at GIMS Hospital, Greater Noida, told ZEE NEWS how its juice can be beneficial for your health. 1. Reduce weight White petha has more than 95 percent water content along with many essential nutrients. Also, it is a calorie-free diet, so it is considered helpful in reducing weight. To get better results, drink petha juice every morning. By doing this regularly, the belly fat will start reducing in a few weeks. 2. Improve digestion By drinking the juice of white petha, the ulcer is removed from the intestinal membranes. If you keep fast or eat spicy food for a long time, it can lead to acidity, in which case the anti-microbial properties of this vegetable wipe out the harmful bacteria from the intestines. 3. Glow on Face Petha juice is very useful for our skin. Make a face pack by mixing this juice with lemon juice and then apply it to the face. With this, not only will the dark spots disappear, but there will be a tremendous glow on the skin. (Disclaimer: The information given here is based on home remedies and general information.

From one July Fourth to the next, a steep slide for Biden ahead of midterms

Last Fourth of July, President Joe Biden gathered hundreds of people outside the White House for an event that would have been unthinkable for many Americans the previous year. With the coronavirus in retreat, they ate hamburgers and watched fireworks over the National Mall. Although the pandemic wasn't over yet, Biden said, we're closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus. Across the country, indoor masking requirements were falling as the number of infections and deaths plummeted. Within weeks, even some of the president's allies privately admitted that the speech had been premature. Soon the administration would learn that the delta variant could be transmitted by people who had already been vaccinated. Masks went back on, then came polarising vaccination mandates. The even-more-contagious omicron variant would arrive months later, infecting millions and causing chaos during the holiday season. We were hoping to be free of the virus, and the virus had

Bairstow leads England rally against India

Jonny Bairstow was eyeing a third hundred in successive Tests after leading England's fightback against India at Edgbaston on Sunday in fine style. England were 84-5, a huge 332 runs behind India's first innings 416, when play resumed on the third day of the Covid-delayed fifth Test, with Bairstow 12 not out and captain Ben Stokes unbeaten on nought. But by the time rain brought the morning session to a halt 15 minutes ahead of schedule, England were 200-6, in sight of avoiding the follow-on in a match they had to win to end the five-Test series all square at 2-2. Bairstow was 91 not out, his latest display of dynamic run-making following scores of 136 at Trent Bridge and 162 at his Headingley home ground during England's recent 3-0 whitewash of Test world champions New Zealand. England's first series under their new leadership duo of Stokes and red-ball coach Brendon McCullum had several times seen them hit their way out of trouble. But doubts had been expressed over whether batting in 'Bazball' fashion, a reference to former New Zealand captain McCullum's nickname, would work against India's formidable pace attack. The strengths and weaknesses of such an approach were encapsulated in Stokes's exit for 25. Already dropped on 18, when Shardul Thakur floored a routine catch at cover, Stokes was missed again on 25 when India stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah dropped a low chance at mid-off, with Thakur the unlucky bowler on this occasion. But Thakur was not unlucky for long as Stokes, far from retreating into his shell, drove harder and higher next ball only for Bunmrah, diving to his left, to hold a brilliant catch and one far harder than the chance he had missed. England, at 149-6 were still in trouble. That catch continued an excellent all-round match for Bumrah, leading India for the first time after regular captain Rohit Sharma was sidelined by Covid-19. The tailender had smashed Stuart Broad for 29 in an over costing a total of 35 -- the most expensive in Test history -- in a flourish to an India total built on hundreds from Rishabh Pant (146) and Ravindra Jadeja (104). Bumrah, in his more familiar role of new-ball spearhead, then removed all of England's top three in a superb haul of 3-35 in 11 overs. That gave him 21 wickets in the series, the most by an Indian bowler in a series in England. But Bairstow, undisturbed by a verbal altercation with Virat Kohli that prompted the umpires to speak to the former India captain, completed an 81-ball fifty before hammering Mohammed Siraj and Thakur for two resounding sixes. This decider should have been played in Manchester last September only to be postponed just hours before the start at Old Trafford because of coronavirus concerns within the India camp.

India's fuel sales soar in June

India's petrol and diesel sales soared in June on the back of the start of cropping season, summer travels and overall pick up in economic activity, preliminary industry data showed. The start of the cropping season helped diesel demand register a double-digit growth over the pre-pandemic period -- a record in recent years. Diesel, the most-used fuel in the country, saw sales jumping 35.2 per cent year-on-year to 7.38 million tonnes in June. This was 10.5 per cent higher than sales in pre-pandemic June 2019 and 33.3 per cent more than June 2020. It was 11.5 per cent higher than 6.7 million tonnes of consumption during May this year. Industry sources attributed the pick up in diesel demand -- which first rose above pre-pandemic levels in April -- to higher consumption by the agriculture and transport sectors. Petrol sales by state-owned fuel retailers, which control roughly 90 per cent of the market, at 2.8 million tonnes in June were 29 per cent higher than the same period last year when a devastating second COVID-19 wave wreaked havoc on the economy. This consumption was 36.7 per cent higher than the demand in June 2020 and 16.5 per cent more than 2.4 million tonnes of sales in the pre-COVID June 2019. Month-on-month sales were up 3.1 per cent, as per the preliminary data. Sources said consumption in June was helped by the low base effect of last year. Consumption has been on the rise since May when annual summer vacations led to higher travels. April saw consumption drop due to a Rs 10 per litre hike in petrol and diesel prices after an over four-month hiatus. The government had on March 25, 2020 imposed a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of coronavirus. The complete lockdown, which halted mobility and crippled business, was slowly eased after two months. Cooking gas, whose prices were hiked by Rs 103.50 per cylinder since March, saw sales rising by a marginal 0.23 per cent to 2.26 million tonnes in June. This was 9.6 per cent higher than the consumption in June 2020 when the government extended free cooking gas to the poor to help them tide over the hardships of the lockdown. LPG consumption was 27.9 per cent more than June 2019 demand and 6 per cent higher than 1.77 million tonnes of sales in June 2021. Jet fuel (ATF) sales more than doubled to 535,900 tonnes as the aviation sector opened up after two years. ATF consumption was 150.1 per cent more than June 2020 but 12.9 per cent lower than the pre-COVID sales of 615,400 tonnes in June 2019. Month-on-month sales were up 6 per cent.

With a global economic crisis wrought by a mix of the coronavirus pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war in the backdrop rocking the economy, parliament has passed the Tk 6.78 trillion spending plan with the aim of bringing Bangladesh back on the path to development. The MPs passed the budget for 2022-23 fiscal year in voice vote in a session chaired by Speaker Shirin Shamin Chaudhury on Thursday, the last day of the outgoing financial year.

Covid-19: Infection can be detected before symptoms of coronavirus appear, claims study

According to a study, early symptoms of the viral disease can be detected through a health tracker worn on the wrist. This will help in the early detection of being infected with the coronavirus. In this regard, researchers found that the number of people using health trackers is increasing worldwide. Health trackers are used by people to monitor changes in skin temperature, heart, and breathing rate. A recent study report published in the BMJ Open Journal showed that by combining this data with artificial intelligence, the infection can be detected before symptoms of Covid 19 appear. PCR test for corona Whereas PCR swab test is a standard complete method of confirmation of Covid 19. The researchers said that our findings showed that a wearable machine, which is based on algorithms, could serve as a promising tool for detecting early symptoms of Covid 19. Researchers at Risk Medical Laboratory, Liechtenstein found this result from a study report on AVA bracelet wearers. Corona can be detected with a health tracker A fertility tracker monitors breathing rate, heart rate, heart rate variability, wrist skin temperature, and blood flow as well as the quantity and quality of sleep. It takes a few days for the symptoms of the corona to appear after being infected, during which time the virus can be spread unknowingly in a person. But the researchers wanted to see if physical changes could be detected by monitoring active trackers by developing machine learning algorithms to detect corona infection before the onset of symptoms. Study on health tracker Between March 2020 and April 2021, 1,163 participants under the age of 51 were selected for this GAPP study. Launched in 2010, the GAPP aimed to better understand the development of cardiovascular risk factors in the general population of Sichenstein by having study participants wear an AVA bracelet at night. The device saves data every 10 seconds and meets the requirement of uninterrupted sleep for at least four hours. The bracelet also synchronizes with a complimentary smartphone app upon waking. A rapid antibody test is done for Covid 19 infection. At the same time, people with suggestive symptoms are subjected to a PCR swab test. But during the study period, 127 people i.e. 11 percent of the people using the health tracker were found to develop the infection. At the same time, 52 percent of the people wore the bracelet at least 29 days before the initial symptoms appeared. When the PCR swab test of these people was done, the report came back positive. After which these people were included in the final analysis. It was found that the symptoms of coronavirus lasted for an average of 8.5 days. Note: This article has been prepared based on the report published in BMJ Journal.

Apple workers vote for tech giant's first unionised store in the US

The employees passed the measure 65-33, with about a dozen abstentions Apple Store employees in Maryland in the US have voted to join a union, marking a landmark victory for organised labour. Sixty-five of the 110 workers at the store in Towson, Maryland, voted in favour of the proposal, while 33 voted against it. Approximately a dozen of the workers abstained from voting. Voting began on Wednesday and continued through Saturday evening. The ballot was held following a group of workers campaigned for unionisation under the name AppleCORE (Apple Coalition of Organised Retail Employees). Following the announcement of the result, the group tweeted: We did it Towson! We won our union vote! Thanks to all who worked so hard and all who supported! Now we celebrate Tomorrow we keep organising. We did it Towson! We won our union vote! Thanks to all who worked so hard and all who supported! Now we celebrate with @machinistsunion . Tomorrow we keep organizing. #unionizeapple #1u acoreunion (@acoreunion) June 19, 2022 Robert Martinez, the president of International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) said: I applaud the courage displayed by Core members at the Apple store in Towson for achieving this historic victory. The votes must still be certified by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which might take about a week or more. The NLRB has said that once the results of the poll are officially confirmed, Apple will be compelled to negotiate with the union over the working conditions. AppleCORE is going to become a member of the IAM, which is an industrial trade union representing over 300,000 workers. It wasn't the first time that workers at an Apple store attempted to form a union, but it was the first time that their efforts culminated in a vote being held. Apple stores in Atlanta and New York have also initiated the unionisation process for their employees. Last month, the IAM and Apple workers informed Apple CEO Tim Cook of their intention to form a union in a letter, listing access to rights we do not currently have and demanding that the company pledge not to use your resources to engage in an anti-union campaign. AppleCORE stated it did not want to go against or cause confrontation with the company ' s management. Apple workers participating in the Towson Mall union drive have said that they want a greater say over matters such as coronavirus safety, working hours and pay, work-life balance, and benefits that are consistent with tenure. Unions are legally protected in the US, despite the fact that their prevalence is lower than in many European nations. According to reports, Apple engaged a legal firm that specialises in labour law and prepared a list of alking points for its management teams to discourage workers from joining a union. Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's head of retail and HR, paid a visit to the facility in May to address staff. After unionisation campaigns became public, a recorded message from O'Brien was issued to employees, discouraging retail workers from joining unions, claiming that doing so would make it more difficult for Apple to respond to employee complaints. I want to start out by saying it ' s your right to join a union, but it ' s equally your right not to join a union, O ' Brien said, according to audio published by Vice . The union drive at the Towson store is the most recent in a series of high-profile unionisation initiatives taking place in the country. Following the establishment of a union in December at two Starbucks coffee shops in the city of Buffalo, New York, workers at more than 160 of the chain's locations have filed for similar ballots in an effort to join the union. In April, the Amazon Labor Union (ALU) was declared the winner of a NLRB election conducted in Staten Island, New York, in one of the most significant worker victories in modern US labour history. The election results marked the first time that a majority of employees at an Amazon facility voted to join a union.

'Monkeypox spreading from the air', expert gives this special advice

New Delhi: With the rising cases of coronavirus, monkeypox virus infection has put the whole world in new trouble. In fact, cases of monkeypox have been reported in about 29 countries of the world. The World Health Organization says that more than 1000 cases of monkeypox have been confirmed so far and in the meantime, experts made a shocking revelation about the monkeypox virus. Experts from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said, The Monkeypox virus also spreads from the air.'' According to experts, if someone is in constant face-to-face contact with an infected person, then this virus can spread from the air. Experts believe that the monkeypox virus cannot travel much distance in the air. Along with this, the expert has advised people to wear masks. According to a report that emerged, during a briefing last Friday, CDC chief Rochelle Walensky said, In many places, physical contact with symptomatic patients and touching their clothes and beds was causing monkeypox. The CDC has advised travellers and people to wear masks to avoid monkeypox and at the same time avoid going to a person infected with monkeypox.'' In fact, the CDC also clarified in its briefing that, The monkeypox virus that causes rashes in the body cannot survive long in the air like the COVID19 virus. In fact, the expert also said that this virus does not spread by touching someone else's luggage or touching the door or latch as we had seen earlier during the coronavirus.'' In fact, experts say that all the cases of monkeypox that have been reported so far have been found in direct contact with the infected person. The CDC has advised people to wear masks to avoid the monkeypox virus.

These 3 changes visible in new patients of Corona, completely different from before

The country is once again witnessing a surge in corona patients. In the last 24 hours, 5223 new infections of corona have been reported in the country. According to experts, the speed of corona can increase once again. However, the most special thing this time is that the new patients of corona are seeing some new symptoms compared to the previous one. Not only this but a change is also being seen in the recovery from Corona. In fact, health experts say that the coronavirus is not taking the name of ending and there is a possibility that it will also end, while it is changing its symptoms, appearance and methods over time. Coronavirus has been such a disease that has affected almost all the organs of the body after being infected. In the post-COVID effect, it has been seen that corona has also damaged the bones. Doctors say that corona patients are still coming forward but some symptoms have been seen in them. After closely monitoring the new patients of Corona, 3 major changes are being seen and the first change in these is related to the incubation period of corona i.e. the period of its infection. The second change is about the complete recovery of the patient who has been infected with the coronavirus and the third change which is being seen in some patients, not all, is the pain in the throat and the pain of this pain is the body. In patients with asymptomatic symptoms, since there are no symptoms, then any kind of change is less visible or not visible at all. Doctors say that the first change in new patients is being seen in terms of its incubation period. The incubation period i.e. how many days after corona infection or exposure to the virus is the other person getting infected with it. Earlier, it was seen that if a person has come in contact with the virus, then he used to show the symptoms of corona within 5-7 days, but now its duration has increased a bit and now after 8-10 days of coming in contact, the corona is being confirmed in new people. During the previous coronavirus, the patient used to recover in 14 days and many times in serious patients, this period was also 14-21 days. However, now that the corona infection is quite light or asymptomatic, weakness or pain etc. are being seen in the patients for about 1 month. Therefore, it is estimated that after being infected with Corona, the patients are getting into less trouble, but symptoms like fatigue, and pain are going on for about a month. Along with this, complaints of throat pain are also being received in new patients of Corona.

Beware gay and bisexual men! can be the victim Monkeypox

The wave of coronavirus in the world has now started to slow down and due to this, a little relief is being felt. However, in the meantime, Monkey Pox has raised concerns. In fact, 6 patients of this infectious disease have also been found in the US. In fact, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that six more people are being monitored. All of them are suspected to have contracted monkeypox infection. On the other hand, according to the report of the American channel CNN, these people had travelled on a flight with a man suffering from monkeypox and earlier this month they had travelled from Nigeria to Britain. At that time, the infected person was sitting next to them. This disease is rare to be found in humans, although in the past few years, cases have been found in many countries. In fact, the first case in the US this year was found in a Massachusetts man who returned from a trip to Canada. It is being said that this virus usually makes young men victims. It is mostly found in rats and monkeys. Some experts believe that it is through them that this disease has been transferred to humans. So far, apart from the US, two cases of this virus have also been found in Canada. 17 suspects are being investigated. There is also talk of finding a case of monkeypox in Australia. It is being said that the 40-year-old man has been examined at present and the report of the test is awaited. All those found infected with this are young men. The UK's public health body said that the virus does not spread easily among people, but the recent cases were found in gay, bisexual and MSM communities. We are advising these groups to be vigilant. Contact the sexual health service if there are any unusual rashes or wounds on any part of their body, especially in their genitals.''

Relief amid rising corona! Very few critically ill variants in the country

The havoc of coronavirus has started once again in India, but under the information received, very few variants of it have been found. However, none of them has shown cases of increased transmission, serious illness or hospitalization. This information has been given in the report of the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG). In fact, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the recombinant is prepared by a combination of the genetic material of two different variants of the virus. According to the report that emerged, A study of genome sequencing has shown that very few recombinant variants have been found in India. So far, no one has seen an increase in transmission or serious illness or hospitalization. Even if it is this new wave of Corona, it is not as devastating as it was seen in April last year. INSACOG says that the work of monitoring the mutation of the virus in 52 laboratories is going on. Apart from this, the researchers also reported that the suspected variants of the recombinants are being closely monitored.'' Any kind of alert regarding public health is being monitored. This report has been uploaded by INSACOG after almost three months. Yes, and it has been prepared after studying 240,570 samples till April 8. At the same time, 118,569 variants of concern or interest; 44,100 of the omicron variants; Delta's 43,925; Alpha's 4266; 5,607 variants of B.1.617.1 and 20,448 variants of the AY series have been analysed.

Covishield recipients who are covid naive at higher risk

The havoc of coronavirus has not yet subsided and its omicron variant still remains a threat to the whole world. However, in the meantime, scientists have also expressed concern about the ability of the Covishield vaccine against the BA.1 variant of Omicron. According to a report that has surfaced, in people who have received both doses of Covishield and have never succumbed to the infection before, their neutralizing power against the omicron BA.1 variant has been seen to be very low. Yes, and such people were seen to be at greater risk than those who had recovered from the infection and had taken both doses of Covisheild. The study conducted by the ICMR-National Institute of Virology (ICMR-NIV) points to the need to take a booster dose as soon as possible. In fact, for this research, serum samples of 24 corona infected persons were collected 180 days after the second dose of Covisheild. At the same time, samples of 17 people who had not got corona and had taken both doses of Covisheild. Yes and even after taking both doses of Covisheild in these people, omicron infection was found. In fact, the researchers found that all the samples neutralized the B.1, Beta and Delta variants more effectively than the omicrons. However, the average of antibodies against the omicron in serum samples was found to be the lowest at 0.11. In other cases, the average was 11.28 and 26.25. At the same time, according to a scientist, the omicron with the highest mutation is more adept at escaping from immunity than delta or other variants in vaccinated people. Yes, and earlier, the National Institute of Virology had said about the omicron variant after a study that the antibody level of the double dose of the Covid vaccine starts decreasing after six months. Everyone for this study, people were divided into three groups. The first group included 18 people from Uttar Pradesh who had taken the first dose of Covisheild and the second dose of Covacin. In the second and third groups, there were 40 people who had taken both doses of Either Covisheild or Covacin. The result of this was that the second dose of Covacin after Covisheild gave a good response against Delta or another 'variant of concern'. However, a decrease in neutralizing antibody levels was observed in all groups against the omicron variant of the corona.

New variant XE of corona knocked, know how much more dangerous than omicron

Even though the cases of corona infection have started to decrease now, but still in many countries, the cases of coronavirus are increasing rapidly these days. Yes, and in China, due to this, a lockdown has been imposed in many cities. Amidst all this, now a new variant of coronavirus XE has been knocked. Yes, and who has said that this new variant is 10% more infectious than omicron. A recent study by the British Health Security Agency of the UK has shown that there are currently 3 hybrid COVID variants in operation. And it has Delta and BA. Two different variants born from a combination of 1 are XD and XF, while the third is XE. According to the report that emerged, the XE variant ba two sub-lenses of the old omicron. 1 and BA. There is a recombinant strain of 2. However, the WHO in its recent report has said that unless significant changes are noticed in the transmission and disease behaviour of the XE variant, it will be linked to the omicron variant itself. Let everyone know who says ba. The 2 sub-variants have now become the biggest concern for the world, with the number of sequenced cases accounting for about 86 percent. The XE strain was first detected in the UK on January 19 and since then more than 600 XE cases have been confirmed. Suzanne Hopkins, an expert at Britain's health security agency, says there is not enough evidence to draw conclusions about the infectivity, and severity of the new variant XE. It is also not known whether the vaccine will work on this or not. Apart from this, experts have also said that recombinant variants can also be as dangerous as earlier variants, and they contain spikes and structural proteins from the same virus (such as XE or XF). Yes, and of these, XD seems to be the most worrying variant and patients infected with this variant have been found in Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Since the third wave of COVID-19, it seemed as if the epidemic was over now. However, once again the coronavirus is slowly spreading its foot. Let me tell you all that the cases in the countries of Europe and Asia continue to increase. On the other hand, scientists have expressed the fear that the fourth wave of Corona in other big countries may also knock soon and for this, the sub-variants of Omicron ba. 2 (Omicron BA. 2) It is responsible. You all must be aware that coronavirus is mainly a respiratory disease that damages the lungs. Yes and it has a high fever, cough, and sore throat, however, now this virus is wreaking havoc in other parts of the body.

Let us all know that it is very important for you to understand these symptoms before the fourth wave of Corona. Recent research has found that there is a deep connection between the symptoms of coronavirus and dental health. At the same time, scientists believe that COVID-19 can affect the health of the teeth. 75% of the patients suffering from corona have seen tooth problems. Let us tell you all that in a report of 54 studies on the symptoms of coronavirus, it has been seen that the top 12 symptoms of this serious disease did not have signs associated with the mouth. Fever on this list (81. 2 percent), cough (58. 5%), and fatigue (38. 5%) were the most common symptoms. A warning sign of corona associated with teeth- 1.Pain in the gums 2.Pain in the jaw or tooth 3.Blood clotting in the gums 4.Fever 5.Cough 6.Fatigue The pain in the teeth or gums can bother anyone, and this completely affects the routine.
