It is killing sea birds and turtles in the open ocean and it could also be damaging our health. Exclusive research shows that micro-plastic, these tiny bits, are getting into our seafood. Some scientists believe that up to 4000 bits could be getting into our bodies if we are consuming things like mussels and oysters and so on, and that's by the end of the century.

The largest ever study conducted on the artificial sweetener Aspartame has concluded that the chemical additive may cause death as a side effect of consuming it. The study, put together by researchers from the University of Iowa, looked at 60,000 women who were addicted to aspartame in soft drinks over the course of 10 years. Researchers found that consumption of two or more of these drinks per day made the women more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and subsequently die an early death. Naturalnews.com reports: The paper compared the health outcomes of women who consume diet beverages to those who dont, observing that those who do are 30 percent more likely to suffer some kind of cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke. Among those who suffer such a fate, those who consume aspartame are 50 percent more likely to die from it compared to non-diet beverage drinkers.

Slack and similar workplace chat software may have changed how we communicate with our coworkers, but they haven't necessarily cut down on how often we communicate with them. Now, the San Francisco-based Slack believes the next big improvement in office communication will be software that helps workers stay on top of important messages. It's actually quite time consuming sometimes to keep up with Slack, says Noah Weiss, who heads Slack's Search, Learning, and Intelligence department. Broadly speaking, Weiss and his team are working on making their software better at surfacing important conversations and information, similar to the way Netflix surfaces movie recommendations based on users' viewing habits. On a practical level, Slack hopes to cut down the amount of time it takes to catch up on a day's worth of Slack messages from more than an hour to 10 minutes, Weiss says.

The system only has to deal with this delta data, which makes it easier to manage while consuming less bandwidth. Backup Accelerator uses these block-level changes to reduce backup windows and improve performance. Best of both worlds Another significant benefit is the use of hybrid cloud-based backup and recovery that takes the best of both worlds to meet different customer drivers. For MSPs, hybrid means you can offer an on-premises disk backup of each client’s complete infrastructure with an additional duplicate in the cloud. Both sets are kept synchronised and allow for rapid recovery from a local set, say for file corruption during a major site outage or a catastrophe like fire or flood, which can be responded to with a complete local datacrucially without having to download anything over the IP network. SolarWinds MSP stands out for giving MSP’s the ability to offer this true DR service across physical servers and workstations, and virtual machines such as those from VMware and Microsoft, as well as virtual machines running inside the clouds of Amazon and Azure - all in a single solution.

For its processor, the Spin 5 sports an Intel Core i3-6100U Dual-core 2.30 GHz chip. It is not the fastest, but manages to hold up to other notebooks in its price range. The Spin 5 also comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage. It is admittedly small for media junkies, but in a flippable laptop, an SSD is generally the better choice. If, like me, you consider the storage capacity a little on the low side, you can utilise streaming services, public cloud services, and your own personal cloud. This gives me access to the files and media I need, without relying on the built-in SSD. However, this may not be the solution for everyone. Whatever method you choose to use, the Spin 5 is an excellent notebook for consuming media. It has a beautiful 13.3in Full HD IPS display, with Acer’s Colour Intelligence technology, and is backed by a pair of surprisingly good built-in speakers, with Acer’s True Harmony technology.

Rather like working on the sports desk, the Ryder Cup captaincy is one of those eat, sleep and breathe it roles … just with not as much eating or sleeping. The all-consuming nature of being a skipper in the modern era just about overwhelms everything else. If you’re not constantly peering at the automatic qualifying points list or worrying about your wildcards, then you’re fretting about the soft furnishings that will add ambience to the team room. Ask some of the recent incumbents of the position on either side of the transatlantic divide about the one thing that was affected most by the trials and tribulations of being captain and they’ll probably say their own golf. It probably left them tearing their hair out. At least Jim Furyk doesnt have to worry about that. The glabrous golfer, who was named as the USA’s captain for the 2018 match in Paris, remains convinced that the hoopla surrounding his appointment will not impact on his game.

Demonstrate honesty and vulnerability. The best entrepreneur leaders today build trusting cultures by being warm, competent, approachable, and relaxed. Everyone knows who is in charge, but the leaders don't hide an occasional shortcoming, and are openly honest without negative emotions. They favor a "leadership by all" culture. It's important to get it right the first time, because repairing and replacing a negative workplace culture is far more time consuming - change is always difficult. Equally important, you need all the productivity and loyalty you can get right up front with a startup. In addition, very few people get a second chance to be trusted. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

However, we note that the technical challenges of facial recognition include: (1) algorithms; (2) hardware design; and (3) the build-out of a database for verification and authentication, which could be time consuming. As such, before Apple can fully replace the fingerprint system with facial recognition, a combination of the two steps of bio-recognition could be a valid solution for enhancing transactions security. Assuming the technological challenges are not too great and adoption this year isn't too soon, Kuo suggests Apple's new system will usher in a "paradigm shift" for the application of biometric identification in smartphones. Kuo's latest report is builds on previous predictions regarding this year's "10th anniversary" iPhone, which is expected to feature a radical redesign comprising an edge-to-edge display with an embedded home button, a glass body, and potentially wireless charging.

The carbon and hydrogen burn in the oxygen of the air, consuming much of our atmospheric oxygen (not that we care--we're not there to breathe it). The stresses of Texaball entering the mantle crack the crust all over the place, allowing magma to seep out. This magma also burns, consuming the rest of our oxygen, covering the land with liquid rock, and killing anyone who miraculously survived Rocknami 2016. "Everyone dies™" Option 2: The ball hits the ocean with a great deal of speed, like an asteroid impact. See Option 1. It turns out that this increased speed changes almost nothing. Texaball will still make a megatsunami and rocknami, both of which take some time to permeate through the Earth. Texaball gets much farther into the mantle than it does in Option 1, and huge chunks of Earth are launched into the sky, orbit, or even out into interstellar space.

If you are wondering where and with whom to socialize, just call one of the "favorites" on your smart phone and make a plan to meet. Tell them about what is troubling you to get you started--even a short chat with a close-friend can significantly improve your mood. 3. Consume a moderate amount of alcohol. I know, I know, I shouldn't be encouraging people to drink, but what to do? It turns out that when we desperately need a happiness quick-fix, consuming a moderate amount of alcohol can be effective. The key here is to consume just enough to feel a little relaxed. The very process by which alcohol lowers inhibitions can also lower the tendency to worry. In other words, alcohol can temporarily take your mind off things that are causing you to feel negative and thus, can be useful in situations in which our mind is on a "negativity overdrive." Needless to say, it is important to consume only a moderate amount of alcohol.
