At the time of the study, moderate drinking was classed as consuming 21 units per week for men and 14 for women. In 2016 this was revised down to 14 units of alcohol a week for both men and womenroughly equivalent to six pints of beer or nine small glasses of wine. The study concluded that moderate drinkers were less likely to have an episode of a range of heart and vascular diseases, compared with people who never drank alcohol. Heavy drinkers, on the other hand, were at a higher risk of developing some of the same heart conditions. Should we take the good news with a pinch of salt? Articles published in The Sun and a number of other newspapers fail to acknowledge the limitations of the study. Scientists were able to establish a link between non-drinking and the risk of heart disease, but they were not able to prove that one influences the other.

If this is the case, it means there will be no replacement for the V8-engined AMG CLS 63 . This will leave space for the arrival of an AMG GT four-door , which is an entirely different model that is inspired by the GT Concept of the Geneva motor show . The GT four-door will use a twin-turbocharged V8 engine - borrowed from either the AMG GT or E 63 . The CLS and AMG GT four-door both get the same number of doors, but as the spotted development car shows, the CLS will have a less aggressive exterior and more defined bootlid. Body proportions look near identical to those of the current car, meaning the CLS will also be smaller than the GT four-door. The changes will be evolutionary both outside and in, with the new E-Class offering the best insight into how the CLS’s details will look. Some of the semi-autonomous driving technology of the E-Class will be carried over to the CLS, possibly including Speed Limit Pilot, which automatically adjusts the speed of the vehicle in relation to posted speed limits, and Active Lane Change Assist, which is able to autonomously perform a lane change.

Earlier this month, actor Jim Tavaré was in a terrible car accident that left him with collapsed lungs, multiple broken bones and a broken neck. He spent two weeks in intensive care battling his severe injuries. On Monday, Tavaré was able to get into a wheelchair and go outside for one very good reason: to see his beloved dog Mr. Kippy. According to a post on Tavaré's Facebook page, Mr. Kippy was with the actor at the time of the accident, but doesn't seem to have suffered the same bad injuries as Tavaré. The bond between an owner and his dog is something special, and in the video it's clear that Tavaré and Mr. Kippy are very glad to be back together again. We're not crying, you're crying.

"Kareem is known for the hook shot, Jerry [West] is known for the moves and Magic was known for the coordination and capability. Michael Jordan was known for the spread eagle," he says. "When we did Wilt Chamberlain in Philadelphia, we emphasized the dunking. Everybody had their niche. Shaquille is very well known for the slam and hanging by the rim. How do you do it without touching the ground? That was the question from the beginning." The bronze Shaq is nine feet tall, and according to Amrany , 1,500 pounds, though the official Lakers press release lists it as 1,200. But what's 300 pounds? To me, that says that if the bronze Diesel fell on me, I might die a little slower. It will sit 10 feet off the ground, which means unless you are as tall as Shaq , or at least have something resembling an NBA vertical leap, you'll never be able to touch it.

Microsoft explains in a blog post : That is a lot of work, which is why this is not how the UWP [Universal Windows Platform] works. But because web browsers are among some of the most threatened software there is, it is worth it in this case. The firm also made it clear that the browsers Flash app container has undergone a similar process of hand-tuning to tighten it up, because as youre probably aware, Flash is an often-used attack vector . Going for brokers Microsoft further talked about improved countermeasures regarding Edges brokers code which allows access to resources on the PC when necessary (such as granting access to a specific file on the computer and only that file if youre uploading it via the browser). Hacking a broker is a potential method of being able to escape from the sandbox, and the firm noted that the aforementioned tightening of the sandbox cut off access to many brokers, leaving less opportunity for exploits and furthermore, a number of fresh exploit mitigation technologies have been applied to said brokers.

Tamron Hall shocked the world when she suddenly quit the TODAY show , but the longtime host is ready for everyone to calm down about it all. Some would call and say, Oh my God, are you OK?' And I was like, What happened? Who died?' and then there were other people who said, What’s next?' she said at the Women's Business Enterprise National Council’s Summit Salute on Thursday, Page Six reports. I dont want a friend who calls me saying, Oh my God.' It’s a job. It doesnt define me. It doesnt determine what I do. . .how I treat people. I’m going to always look you in your face and say, Thank you' and Please' — and if you make me mad, a good cuss word — but in the end, a title can’t define you.
