    FOR those that struggle to see results on the toilet, it may be down to your position. Giulia Guerrini, the lead pharmacist at digital pharmacy medino.com, has offered her top tips for the best way to sit on the toilet - and the results might surprise you. 1If a stool was added for the feet to rest on, this would be the perfect position for sitting on the toiletCredit: Getty "Sitting in the wrong position can have an impact: our gut is not designed to completely open the hatch when we are in a seated position (or standing), which means that our faeces hit a corner (thank god or it would be a disaster)," she explained to the Express.co.uk. "Squatting has always been the preferable position as it helps the muscles relax and straighten the faeces exit pathway." In fact, in countries where a throne chair is used for people to sit on while on the toilet, diverticulitis, haemorrhoids and constipation are the most common. And while squatting is the optimum position for your toilet habits, you...

    TYSON FURY and his wife Paris showed they’re still modest shoppers by visiting a discount bargain store. The Gypsy King has made millions of pounds over the last three years, in large part down to former rival Deontay Wilder.

    Age is just a number, goes the popular saying. Scientists in the U.S., however, believe we are focusing on the wrong number. They claim that rather than gauging the state of our health based on our age in calendar years, we should be measuring our inflammatory age. The scientists, from Stanford University and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, have now developed a blood test to measure inflammatory age (or iAge), a measure of chronic inflammation — and say that checking it regularly could provide an early warning of inflammation-related conditions from heart disease to dementia.  This would give us the time to take measures to improve our health, from lifestyle changes to taking medication. As Dr Nazish Sayed, an assistant professor of vascular surgery at Stanford, explains: 'We are all going to age and we are all going to die — the only difference is how well we age,' he says.  'The goal is a healthier old age — to prevent some of the ill health associated with ageing and make ageing more graceful.' US  scientists have now...
    Like Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah and Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is among the conservative right-wing Republicans who has become persona non grata with the MAGA crowd for acknowledging that President Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump fair and square in the 2020 election and that widespread voter fraud did not occur. But as vehemently as far-right MAGA Republicans detest Raffensperger — and even though some of them have threatened violence against his family — he would not rule out the possibility of voting for Trump in 2024 when progressive firebrand Mehdi Hasan interviewed him on MSNBC recently.Watch Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who has been verbally abused & threatened by Trump, whose family got death threats from Trump supporters, *refuse* to rule out voting for Trump again in 2024, in an interview with me.\n\nI was stunned.pic.twitter.com/AGAYD89aXC — Mehdi Hasan (@Mehdi Hasan)1637116008 Hasan, who isn't one to shy away from asking tough questions, asked Raffensperger if he would vote for Trump in 2024 should he be the next...
    NOVEMBER’S stimulus payment has come and gone, meaning there’s only one payment left in 2021.  Parents still have time to receive the last Child Tax Credit payment on December 15. 2There is one more stimulus check payment left in 2021Credit: Getty It’s important to know that families will be receiving half of the money in monthly payments this year with the rest coming in 2022 after filing taxes. Parents can unenroll from the remaining advance payments to get them as part of their credit next year. The reason behind the smaller payments instead of a large lump sum is to bring money to households sooner rather than later. The “advance payments” are used to pay for expenses like food, rent, and daycare.” However, the advance payments are optional, and not all US families qualify for them. For those whose household situation might change, it could be beneficial to opt-out. The deadline to opt-out of monthly payments is November 29 at 8:59 p.m. PT [or 11:59 p.m. ET]. Families can use the IRS Child Tax Credit Update Portal between now and...

    BRUSHING your teeth twice a day is part of all of our routines, but one expert has revealed there is one big mistake you could be making. Good oral hygiene is key to a happy healthy smile and keeps bacteria from building up in your mouth. 1Oral hygiene can play a huge part in our overall health and one expert has revealed the one part of your routine that could do with a little bit more attentionCredit: Getty Dental professional Dr Sameet Hindocha from oral hygiene company MyMouth, says in order to prevent nasty bacteria - you should also be scraping your tongue. This he says, is so you can prevent gum disease developing. Gum disease is an incredibly common oral disease and around 45-50 per cent of all adults in the UK suffer with the condition. The biggest cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene and not brushing your teeth properly, but bacteria can also live on your tongue, Dr Hindocha says.

    Menopause is a body change that is unique to every woman in her hormonal life cycle, but many would agree that it is one of the biggest factors in uprooting a good night’s sleep.   Sleep comes to us by way of the hormone melatonin, however, the melatonin production capacity becomes far less robust as women age.  Missing out on sleep can have a negative affect on our overall health, from low mood to making us more prone to serious medical conditions including obesity, heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.  Leading psychologist and mindfulness expert, Hope Bastine, who is also resident expert at sleep tech firm SIMBA, has shared her top tips for getting a better night's kip with FEMAIL.

    Apple is reportedly studying how it can use AirPods to take users’ body temperature and improve their hearing, according to The Wall Street Journal. The tech giant is reportedly developing AirPod prototypes that can read body temperature from inside the ear, according to The Wall Street Journal. Apple is also improving on motion sensor technology already deployed in AirPods to detect user posture and alert them when they’re slouching, the WSJ reported. The company also plans to use AirPods to improve users’ hearing, the WSJ reported. While Apple’s AirPods Pro can already function as hearing aids, the company is looking to improve the technology.

    THE FBI withholding Gabby Petito's cause of death is strange and only typically happens when investigators are "missing something", an expert has claimed. Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden told Fox News that the FBI's decision to withhold the slain vlogger's remains was "very unusual", as was their decision not to release her cause of death when a preliminary autopsy was completed. 4The withholding of Gabby Petito's cause of death is not usualCredit: Instagram 4Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden made the assessment to Fox NewsCredit: Getty The remains of 22-year-old Gabby were found at a campsite near Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park on September 19. She was officially reported missing on September 10, but is believed to have last been seen alive around August 27.

However, the office did not reveal her cause of death pending the final autopsy results. They have also not yet released her...
    ANYONE who has ever moved house will be all too familiar with the chaos that comes with packing and unpacking all of your belongings. But experts have now revealed the two most important boxes to pack when you’re on the move – and they will make the transition so much easier. Getty - Contributor 1 Experts have revealed the two boxes you must pack when moving home According to experts at Westpac you should begin by putting together a “moving night” box including all of the essentials you’ll need during your first night at your new home. These could include a fresh pair of pyjamas, toilet roll (you don’t want to be caught short!) as well as a phone charger, reports the MailOnline. You should also pack any bedding, cutlery, medication and toiletries you might need.

    Sensors on a person's smartphone can be used to determine if they're high with uncanny precision, according to a new study out of Rutgers University Researchers at the school's Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research found that an algorithm that combined sensors tracking movements and GPS location with data on the time of day and day of the week had a 90 percent accuracy rate in determining if someone was stoned. The algorithm could help law enforcement and health professionals more accurately predict if an individual is currently experiencing 'cannabis intoxication,' according to a release. 'We might be able to detect when a person might be experiencing cannabis intoxication and deliver a brief intervention when and where it might have the most impact to reduce cannabis-related harm,' said co-author Tammy Chung, director of the Institute's Center for Population Behavioral Health in the statement.  Scroll down for video Researchers have been able to create an algorithm that predicts whether a regular pot smoker is high with 90 percent accuracy.

                      by Ailan Evans  Apple is reportedly working on iPhone technology capable of detecting and diagnosing depression, according to The Wall Street Journal. The tech giant is developing the iPhone features to reliably detect and diagnose depression as well as cognitive decline, people familiar with the matter told the WSJ. The technology is being developed in partnership with researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and pharmaceutical company Biogen. The technology is in its early stages of development, according to the WSJ, but will collect data on iPhone users’ mobility and sleep patterns, physical activity, and other behaviors. However, researchers are still unsure whether they can create algorithms that reliably detect the mental health state of users. Apple, Biogen, and UCLA did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment. Apple reportedly acknowledged the potential privacy concerns the technology would raise, according to documents reviewed by the WSJ, and plans to only scan user data on-device, rather than sending personal information back to Apple’s servers.

    The decision to go back into offices has been met with mixed reviews, but at some point, it was going to be inevitable, right? For the majority of people, they haven’t seen the inside of their office building, let alone sat at their desks, in well over a year. What does that mean? Well, it’s gonna be pretty dirty and probably a bit sad. Desks left to their own devices turn into apartment complexes for dust bunnies and debris, even when we’re there 9-5. There are just too many places for dirt to hide unless you’re actively wiping down your space (which should be your new routine going forward). So, we have to start thinking strategically about how to bring our work desks back to life, the same way we made our kitchen table into the sprawling workspace it needed to be.

    It will come as a shock to no one who has read about me before that I’ve had a lot of sex. I once met a stranger in a hotel room for a post-divorce romp, initiated an open relationship with my boyfriend so I could sleep with women, and have racked up enough one-night-stands to never worry about running out of content for any sex column. 2Nadia shared the reasons she doesn't hold handsCredit: nadiabokody/Instagram As Tig Notaro once joked, I’m not embarrassed about the number of guys I’ve slept with – I am obviously embarrassed about the quality, though. That said, I’ve only held hands with a few people in my life. Perhaps because the act of interlocking fingers seems to demand the kind of aggressive vulnerability I’ve rarely felt required during a hook-up. This occurred to me recently because I just crossed that barrier with the person I’m dating. Though we readily had sex on our first meet-up, the act of holding hands – even two months into knowing one another – felt somehow more daring and illicit than taking all our...

    lechatnoir | E+ | Getty Images Workers who are nearing age 65 and have health insurance through their job may want to consider how Medicare could factor into their medical coverage. While not everyone must sign up for Medicare at that age of eligibility, many are required to enroll — or otherwise face lifelong late-enrollment penalties.

    General Mark Milley was worried then-President Donald Trump would initiate a war against Iran after he lost the November election to Joe Biden as a ploy to stay in power, according to a report. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, thought that the United States came ‘very close’ to a full-blown military conflict with Iran, it was reported. He feared Trump would start a war with Iran as a pretext to remain in power even after Biden was declared the lawful winner, according to The New Yorker.

But you’re not. Whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not, you have some behavioral biases that could materially and adversely affect your investment decisions and ultimately your outcomes. And there’s a plethora of research to prove it, dating back at least in the modern era, to 1979 when Daniel Kahneman’s and Amos Tversky’s paper, Prospect Theory: A Study of Decision Making Under Risk, was published. Their research uncovered the loss aversion bias. In the years before and after that landmark paper was published, numerous other biases have been identified. And, at a minimum, you should have a working knowledge of some of the more common biases, how to spot them, and what you can to avoid or mitigate these biases.

    Oscar Wong/Getty Images Drinking alcohol during the second half of your menstrual cycle could make it harder to get pregnant, a small study suggests.  Researchers found people who drank during the luteal phase of their menstrual cycles were 44% less likely to conceive.  It's important to note drinking is not a form of birth control.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Drinking alcohol when you're trying to get pregnant can make it harder to conceive — even if you do so in moderation, a small study suggests. The report, published June 8 in the scientific journal Human Reproduction, found people who drank alcohol in the second half of their menstrual cycle were less likely to conceive than those who avoided drinking.  The study analyzed data from the Mount Sinai Study of Women Office Workers, which surveyed 4640 women from 1990 to 1994. The sample size of the study was 413 women, as women who had existing fertility issues or partners who had had a vasectomy were excluded from the population.  The number and types of drinks each...

Try carrying an unborn child while you plot your way around the course.Twenty years ago, this is exactly what amateur Brenda Corrie-Kuehn -- eight months pregnant -- did at the US Women's Open at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club alongside playing partner Jennifer Greggain, who was well into her second trimester.Their scores were not the best and they were not the quickest around the course -- they were even put on the clock by officials given the number of toilet "pit stop" breaks Corrie-Kuehn had to quite naturally make.Yet the mother-of-three finished with a birdie and defied her obstetrician-gynecologist, who thought she was too close to the due date to be on a golf course in 80-degree heat."I said to her: 'Over my dead body.'

    If you upgraded yourself to a window view while setting up your home office, should you be lathering up with sunscreen before you boot up your screen? It’s a question many are wondering as the days get longer and the weather heats up.  And the answer, dermatologists told Fox News, is yes.   "Yes, you should wear SPF indoors if you’re sitting near windows, or in front of a computer screen, as you’re exposing yourself to potentially skin-damaging light," Elizabeth Mullans, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist, told Fox news.  Even if the window is closed, you should use block, Mullans said.  WHAT IS SKIN CANCER? HOW TO SPOT THE SIGNS AND WHEN TO SEEK HELP "It is easy to believe that once we are indoors that we are protected from the sun," Mullans said. "Not all glass is created equally. It is important to apply daily SPF 30 or higher because harmful UVA rays can penetrate windows."  Another dermatologist explained that windows typically offer good protection against UVB rays, but not UVA. Dr. Min Deng, a dermatologist with MedStar Health compared...
    Crystal Cox/Business Insider Sex with the sole goal of getting pregnant can take the fun and connection out of the experience. Seeking sexual moments between ovulation windows can lead to more relationship fulfillment.   If IVF is making intercourse especially unappealing, find other ways to connect erotically.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Sex therapist Ian Kerner says there are three kinds of sex: recreational, relational, and procreative.  While the first can be fun and experimental and the second builds connection, the procreative type can be stressful, methodical, and often take the place of the other two.  "The move from relational sex to procreative sex can kind of strip out a lot of the other qualities that we're used to having in sex and introduce a sort of ... pressure and and a goal that creates all sorts of anxieties," Kerner told Andrea Syrtash on her podcast Pregnantish. "And anxiety is the number one enemy of sexual health and sexual function and sexual arousal."  But there are ways to integrate intimacy and eroticism into your sex life while you're...

    Social distancing would be almost impossible when pubs fully reopen, a new study suggests. According to researchers in the US, strangers who consume alcohol together may keep their distance initially, but draw physically closer as they become intoxicated. The experts, at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, compared the effects of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on distancing between friends and strangers.  In a lab setting, alcohol caused the strangers to draw significantly closer to each other during social exchange, reducing physical proximity at a rate with 'potentially important implications for public health'.  The study suggests trying to implement any form of social distancing in British pubs once they open properly would be a lost cause.   In England, pubs will open for customers indoors on May 17, while all forms of social distancing – including in pubs – is set to be scrapped from June 21.   Strangers and alcohol is a potentially hazardous mix as far as social distancing is concerned, according to the US study. The combination reduces physical proximity at a rate with 'potentially important implications for public health', the...

    Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb recently said the U.S. can start lifting indoor mask mandates, and he elaborated on Face the Nation about how vaccinations reduce your risk to a level comparable with the flu. Gottlieb told CBS News’ Jonn Dickerson Sunday, “Covid won’t disappear. We’re going to have to learn to live with it, but the risk is substantially reduced as a result of vaccination, as a result of immunity that people have acquired through prior infection.” He said people should make decisions “based on their individual risk” but now “we’re at the point right now where we could start lifting these ordinances and allowing people to resume normal activity.” “Certainly outdoors, we shouldn’t be putting limits on gatherings anymore. We should be encouraging people to go outside. In the states where prevalence is low, vaccination rates are high, and we have good testing in place and we’re identifying infections. I think we could start lifting these restrictions indoors as well on a broad basis.” In response to people’s hesitation about easing restrictions, Gottlieb emphasized that if you...
    The message from health chiefs is clear: Covid-19 vaccines are safe for pregnant women. While a question mark hung over this vital detail earlier on in jab trials, today there is clear data to show there is no risk to mothers-to-be or their unborn children. It is a major step forwards in the battle against the virus. And there is even evidence that vaccinating women now may have knock-on benefits for any children they have in the future, too. Since the immunity provided by a Covid vaccine is passed down to the foetus, wide take-up of the jab will eventually lead to a generation of children with in-built resistance. While the risk that Covid poses to pregnant women and babies is generally low, studies have shown that women who catch it while pregnant are two to three times more likely to give birth prematurely – which can endanger the newborn. However, the jab dramatically reduces this risk. Despite this, experts say that roughly one in five pregnant patients are hesitant about getting a Covid jab. Other studies suggest this is...

    Stress is fairly common in this day and age, but it doesn’t have to be a constant in our lives. In our modern-day world, with so much stimulus and activity, it’s no wonder why 77 percent of Americans claim to experience symptoms related to stress, and 33 percent of Americans feel they have extreme stress. For a lot of people, this stress tends to come from an overwhelming life situation like job pressure or money problems, as well as unhealthy relationships and media overload. Let’s face it, we live in a very fast-paced world, with new information streaming into our conscious awareness constantly. Our brains can only process a small amount of this information so it’s understandable why all of the input can be overwhelming. There’s no shame in feeling overwhelmed and stressed out, it’s simply your body’s way of telling you that something needs to be done differently. See it as a good thing, think of these emotions and symptoms of overwhelm as alarm bells ringing off that you’re taking on too much and you may need to slow...
