Adding this to your morning coffee could help you lose weight: Study 21.1.2018
London: If you are trying to speed up your weight loss, then you may want to try adding an egg to your morning coffee, as according to a recent study, doing so helps. A team of researchers found that many gym-goers use caffeine for a pre-workout boost, but adding a raw egg to that cup of tea or coffee may help you more. However, the practice of mixing raw egg and hot black coffee has been common among the Hungarian, Scandinavian, Vietnamese and even Minnesotan cultures for centuries, the Dailystar reported. Marc Bubbs, director of nutrition for the Canadian Men's National Basketball Team, said, "The combo started to gain popularity as a pre-workout drink". "I've used egg coffee a few times before, doing some fasted cardio in the morning", Marc added. Drinking raw egg could be dangerous as some are contaminated by the bacteria salmonella and which could cause you to throw up. However, raw eggs are safe in coffee, as the heat of the liquid may bring the temperature of the egg up ...

Scientists reveal surprising link between climate change and flowery forests 21.1.2018
Washington: Scientists have revealed a surprising relationship between surging atmospheric carbon dioxide and flower blooms in remote tropical forests. The researchers studying the rich tropical forests of Panama's Barro Colorado Island found that climbing rates of carbon dioxide have set the stage for a multidecade increase in overall flower production. "Over the past several decades, we have seen temperatures warming and carbon dioxide increasing, and our study found that this tropical forest has responded to that increase by producing more flowers," said Stephanie Pau, from the Florida State University in the US. The findings suggest that tropical forests, which have evolved over millennia to flourish in warm, equatorial conditions, may be more sensitive to subtle climatic changes than some ecologists predicted. "Tropical forests have evolved in generally stable climates," Pau said. "So while they may not be warming as much as some higher-latitude ecosystems, these ...

Even as MNCs opt for cloud services, 49% of India still wary of security 21.1.2018 DNA: Mumbai
While an overwhelming majority of global firms have adopted cloud services, there is still a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by them, a survey has revealed. Almost half of Indian organisations say they are not likely to secure sensitive data in the cloud, according to the '2018 Global Cloud Data Security' survey by global digital security firm Gemalto. Globally, organisations said only two-fifths of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions, it said. The survey said there is a gap in awareness within businesses about the services being used. Only a quarter (25 %) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are confident they know all the cloud services their business is using, with a third (31 %) confident they know. The survey was conducted by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of Gemalto with 3,285 IT and IT security practitioners surveyed across the US (575), UK (405), Australia (244), Germany (492), France (293), Japan (424), India ...

SoFi in talks with top Twitter exec about CEO position: WSJ 21.1.2018

Social Finance Inc (SoFi) is in discussions with Anthony Noto, a top Twitter Inc executive, to become the online lender’s chief executive, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing sources.

Noto, Twitter’s chief operating officer, has been offered the CEO position at SoFi, the report said, and was expected to make a decision in the coming days.

SoFi, one of the most valuable private financial technology startups in the United States, has been without a CEO for a quarter of a year, since Mike Cagney stepped down amid a lawsuit that alleged that he presided over a hostile work environment for women.

Twitter on Saturday evening declined to comment and SoFi did not immediately respond to inquires by Reuters.

New study finds surfers may be swallowing antibiotic-resistant bacteria 21.1.2018
Surfers and body-boarders were three times more likely to have potentially dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria in their guts than non-surfers, new research from the UK shows. The findings highlight the omnipresence of superbugs and the peril they might pose even for healthy people participating in water sports, said lead author Anne Leonard, a research fellow at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health at the University of Exeter Medical School in Truro, England. "When people think of superbugs and antibiotic resistant-bacteria, they think of the hospital," she said in a Skype interview. "But there"s evidence that new resistant genes could be evolving in the environment and getting into people." "Protecting our environment will have a multitude of benefits," she said. Drug-resistant infections could kill 10 million people every year starting in 2050, a previous study estimated. Because surfers swallow more seawater than other swimmers, Leonard ...

Researchers say hot yoga no more effective than traditional form 21.1.2018
Washington: Myth busted! A study has recently found that practising yoga in a room heated to 40 degree Celsius is no longer effective at improving the vascular health in people. Bikram yoga, popularly known as hot yoga, is a trendy form of yoga that involves 26 poses performed in a room heated to 40 degrees Celsius. According to researchers from Texas State University and the University of Texas at Austin, USA, a hot yoga style, is no more effective at improving health than the same yoga postures at room temperature. The research indicated that the heated environment did not play a role in causing improvements in vascular health. Despite its popularity, little is known about the health benefits associated with it and even less is known about the stipulation that it is carried out in a hot environment. The researchers noted that it is not necessary for the yoga to be performed at a hot temperature with the effects also being seen at room temperature. The corresponding author Stacy D Hunter said, "The ...
