  • Brushing your teeth properly can be a truly divine experience. (Goby via Unsplash/) Each year, you’ll spend a total of about 24 hours brushing your teeth. No, you can’t just marathon it on Dec. 31 and then forget about it for a whole year. You’ve got to make sure you’re doing it right, day in, and day out—unless you want to have fewer teeth than your great-great-grandparents. The best sources of advice for top toothbrushing technique are the best-practice guidelines from both the American Dental Association and the British Dental Association. They’re largely identical, but if you put them together, you’ll get the closest thing you’ll ever have to a brushing bible. We also interviewed Dr. Richard Niederman, chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Health Promotion at New York University’s College of Dentistry, to get some adult supervision. Brush for the right length of time There’s no motivation like imagining your kitchen timer is a time bomb that will go off if you don’t brush for two whole minutes. (Marcelo Leal via Unsplash/) Both the ADA and BDA are clear: you have to brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day, every day. Niederman is less firm: he says research shows there is little difference between brushing your teeth for two minutes or just brushing them for one. Much less, though, and you’re probably neglecting your teeth. No matter how long you brush for, it’s important to hit each and every one of your teeth, and giving yourself a minimum time is a good way to ensure you do so. Just set a timer and don’t stop until it goes off. You can use the one on your phone, in the kitchen, or even get a special sand timer with smiling teeth to remind you that happy teeth...
  • After critics called out Apple on its restrictive hardware repair policies, Apple announced yesterday it’ll allow repairs from third-party repair shops, and sell them parts for aftermarket service. Don’t get your hopes up just yet. Third-party repair shops first have to attain certification from the company and can only provide fixes for “most common out-of-warranty iPhone repairs.” This means it’ll cover mostly faulty batteries, speakers, and screens. More labor-intensive processes like motherboard repairs and water damage fixes are not on the table. The iPhone maker said it’ll provide these vendors with the same genuine parts, tools, training, repair manuals, and diagnostics as Apple‘s Authorized Service Providers (AASP). While these providers will have to pay the same price for parts as AASPs, they can set their own repair prices. Earlier, third-party repair shops had to apply for AASP certification with a fee to join. Now, the company will charge no fees to obtain certification for independent repairs. Apple‘s COO, Jeff Williams, said the company wants to make it easier for customers to get repairs from independent providers with proper certification and genuine parts: To better meet our customers’ needs, we’re making it easier for independent providers across the US to tap into the same resources as our Apple Authorized Service Provider network. When a repair is needed, a customer should have confidence the repair is done right. We believe the safest and most reliable repair is one handled by a trained technician using genuine parts that have been properly engineered and rigorously tested. Apple has vehemently lobbied against the rights to repair bill, which makes it easier for users to get their devices repaired at a third-party vendor. Last year, it sued a repairperson in Norway for using aftermarket parts, but lost the case. The company has tried to block third-party repairs as much as possible....
  • US prosecutors are investigating new instances of alleged technology theft by Chinese telecommunication equipment maker Huawei, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter. Huawei is accused of stealing intellectual property from individuals and companies over several years, and recruiting employees from its rivals, the report added. When contacted by Reuters, a spokesman for prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York declined to comment. The inquiries suggest that the US government is investigating aspects of Huawei’s business practices that weren’t covered in indictments of the Chinese company issued earlier this year, the WSJ report said. In January, the US Justice Department charged Huawei and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, with conspiring to violate US sanctions on Iran by doing business with Tehran through a subsidiary it tried to hide. Huawei was not immediately available for a Reuters request for comment. 10 minutes mail – Also known by names like : 10minemail, 10minutemail, 10mins email, mail 10 minutes, 10 minute e-mail, 10min mail, 10minute email or 10 minute temporary email. 10 minute email address is a disposable temporary email that self-destructed after a 10 minutes. https://tempemail.co/– is most advanced throwaway email service that helps you avoid spam and stay safe.

  • By the end of last year, eScooter companies Bird and Lime had a combined 36 million rides. The scooters can be a convenient option, but they aren’t without risk. (Pixabay/) Since 2017, rentable electric scooters have rapidly been sprouting up across the country. You can now spot jabronis in at least 65 different cities scooting down streets and in-and-out of bike lanes, often sans helmets. And to the surprise of no one, research shows that a significant number of those injuries involve intoxicated drivers. A study published Thursday in Trauma Surgery & Acute Care Open digs into the consequences of drinking and scooting. Researchers from the University of California San Diego analyzed data from three major trauma centers in the U.S. between September 2017 and October 2018, and tallied 103 patients who came in after eScooter mishaps. The majority (62 percent) were between the ages of 20 and 40, two-thirds of which were white men. Extremity fractures were most common, making up 42 percent of the injuries. That included fractured leg bones, collar bones, shoulder blades, and forearm bones. More than half of that group needed surgery. 26 percent of patients had facial fractures, 18 percent had brain bleeds, and 16.5 percent were concussed. Other serious injuries included a torn spleen, a neck injury, and a case of haemothorax, a condition where blood seeps in the space between the chest wall and lungs. Critically, only two people said they were wearing their helmets out of the total 103 that came in (though helmet use data was incomplete for five other people). There isn’t enough data to say for sure how well a helmet would protect a noggin in an eScooter accident, but there are mountains of evidence showing they significantly reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury in motorcycle, bicycle,...
  • Dell Technologies beat Wall Street profit estimates on Thursday, helped by higher demand for desktops, as well as a focus on more profitable contracts within its server unit in China, sending the company’s shares up 9 percent in extended trading. The PC maker is seeing declining demand across industries in China amid an escalating Sino-US trade war, but the company’s focus on selective large deals in the Asian country helped it earn “higher-margin dollars” in a slow market. That helped the company forecast full-year adjusted earnings per share in a range of US$6.95 to US$7.40, above analysts’ estimate of US$6.42, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. The company said it was working to raise prices of products including desktops and workstations to offset the impact of additional 5 percent tariffs effective September 1 on Chinese goods. “Our costs are going to go up and we will have to move price,” chief operating officer Jeffrey Clarke said on a conference call with analysts. Sales fell 7 percent in the company’s servers business to US$8.6 billion, but operating income rose 4 percent to US$1.05 billion. Dell said server orders outside China were up 1 percent in the second quarter and the company expects to gain market share in the current quarter in North America, and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The company reported a 6 percent jump in revenue in its client solutions business, which makes desktop PCs, notebooks and tablets, and branded peripherals. Operating income in the unit more than doubled to US$982 million. Dell is benefiting from an increase in sales of workstations to corporations and higher-end personal computers for gaming. The company returned to the stock market following a hiatus of six years in December last year after it bought back interest in software maker VMware ,...
  • WA-headquartered logistics group Sadleirs has sued Oracle, alleging the vendor lied about the capabilities of its transportation management platform. The company has filed a lawsuit in the Federal Court against the software vendor, arguing that claims made about the Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) system were false or overblown and in breach of the Australian Consumer Law Sadleirs alleges that the software was “not robust and is prone to crashing and timing out even during simple operations” and representations by Oracle that the software was efficient were also false because “the OTM system does not allow for operational efficiency”. In 2015 the privately owned logistics company began searching for a single software system to handle logistics, warehousing and finances. Oracle submitted a response to a Sadleirs request for information (RFI) and following negotiations a contract was signed in August 2017. The group that month also signed a contract with Oracle partner PrimeQ, which Sadleirs said was recommended by the software company. In a December 2017 media release, PrimeQ said it would implement “a fully integrated end-to-end Oracle Cloud solution incorporating Oracle Customer Experience (CX), Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle Warehouse Management (WMS), Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) and Oracle Cloud Business Intelligence.” “The logistics industry in Australia is typically characterised by older information technology,” PrimeQ CEO Andrew McAdams was quoted as saying in the release. “By replacing its legacy system with a cloud-based solution, Sadleirs will benefit from lower capital costs and rapid implementation times as well as greater delivery efficiencies. “These efficiencies will extend across all areas of the Sadleirs business, from the streamlining and optimisation of fleet through to the automating of administrative activities.” Read more Oracle prepares to cut ribbon on Gen 2 Cloud region in Sydney Sadleirs alleges that Oracle misled it when the vendor, in its RFI...
  • Temple Square sits at the heart of Salt Lake City’s downtown. The ten-acre complex is the closest thing to the Vatican City for the Latter-Day Saint (LDS) faith. Within its lush surroundings, it houses the world’s first Mormon temple. Visitors are welcome to visit the grounds, and as you walk through the immaculately groomed facility, you’ll inevitably catch the eye of a young missionary. Mormonism is a famously proselytizing faith. A common rite of passage for young Mormon men (and women, albeit to a lesser extent) is to embark upon a mission, where they dedicate as much as two years of their life to spread their faith, often thousands of miles from home. But what happens when their mission ends and they return to secular life? In many cases, they’re finding success in Utah’s burgeoning technology sector, either working on the front-line of sales or software development, or even founding innovative companies themselves. Indeed, one could even make a compelling case that returned LDS missionaries are the “secret sauce” behind the frenetic growth of the Silicon Slopes scene. The Utah Success Story “Silicon Slopes” refers to two things; the first is a geographical area that encompasses Salt Lake City and many of the surrounding towns, including Lehi, Provo, and Orem. The second is a 501(c) non-profit organization that advocates for technology companies in this area. Outside of the state, Utah isn’t especially well-known for its startup scene. It’s undeniably overshadowed by San Francisco and New York, both of which house most of America’s leading technology companies. These two cities attract the lion’s share of venture capital money, and therefore command most of the media attention. Despite that relative obscurity, Utah has produced some astounding success stories. The most well-known is arguably the Farmington-based Pluralsight, which runs a training platform designed...
  • Credit:Disney/Nighthawk Interactive A new trailer confirms Disney will be re-releasing remastered versions of its cult classic licensed games, Lion King and Aladdin. If you’re wondering why the company’s bothering to bring them back now — yeah, that’s an easy answer. Images leaked earlier this week showed the box art for the game collection and now, thanks to a trailer from developer Nighthawk Interactive, we know more about what the games will have and what platforms we’ll be able to play them on. Both games will be included in the Disney Classic Games Collection, which arrive on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Steam. As for when they’ll be released, all we know is “Fall.” I was kind of wondering what would motivate Disney to re-release these games after all these years? What event this year would prompt Disney to revisit these older properties? Oh wait a moment. Yeah, that’s right, Aladdin and The Lion King were the 2019 cornerstones of Disney‘s continued efforts to remake its animated classics as live-action features. I’ve seen them both — nothing to write home about. Aladdin had some good remakes of the music but that’s about it. But still, the DVDs will probably be coming out later this year. Aladdin‘s is due out in September, with The Lion King probably following a few months later — in other words, this fall, coincidentally around the same time the games are released. That’s not me using my cynical voice either. Any excuse to get classics such as these re-released is fine by me. But I’m pretty sure this is Disney attempting to simultaneously market to the kiddies and appeal to the nostalgia of the original viewers in a way the remake films might not. Still, the games appear to have gotten more than just a new coat of digital paint. The collection includes multiple versions...
