  • uBlock Origin is a great piece of software that does blocking to the maximum. It is a sensational program for privacy protection. I highly recommend you download it. You do not need any other ad or tracking cookie blocker with uBlock Origin. In a web test carried out on websites that contained Google ads, trackers, 3rd-parties’ cookies, nothing got through, none of those things stood a chance against uBlock Origin, Google ads all gone, pop-up ads gone and trackers were nowhere to be found. It proved to have a superb performance. The test also showed that after 8 hours and 50 videos watched on Youtube, uBlock Origin had blocked over 4.5 k ads and trackers with not a single ad shown. It also has the ability to block unwanted text, inserts, images and overlays. To get the most out of uBlock Origin you need to read the guides given on the web.

  • https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1602809/russia-news-space-threatens-abandon-nasa-iss-china-space-mission-moon-base I never knew that China were so scientifically advanced as to send astronauts and material into space and construct a space station. Tiangong is a space station that the Chinese Manned Space Agency (CMSA) is building in low Earth orbit. In May 2021, China launched Tianhe, the first of the orbiting space station's three modules, and the country aims to finish building the station by the end of 2022. CMSA hopes to keep Tiangong inhabited continuously by three astronauts for at least a decade. The space station will host many experiments from both China and other countries.

  • I found this on the web - This tip comes from a mom in Australia who has combined two common products to develop her own great cleaning method. All you need is a white wonder sponge (Magic Eraser) and a dishwasher tablet. Measure the size of the tablet and hollow out a part of the sponge so that the tablet fits exactly in the sponge. Moisten the modified cleaning sponge and rub it over the glass shower enclosure or shower curtain. Rinse with warm water and, voilà… you have a radiant bathroom! Before you start cleaning, it is recommended you wear rubber gloves to protect your hands. A dishwasher tablet is more powerful than you may think!

  • Bees simply make cells made of soft wax that are cylindrical and circular in cross-section. These circular cells are packed together like a layer of bubbles. The wax is softened by the heat of the bee's bodies and gets pulled into hexagonal cell shape by surface tension, mass and gravity at the junctions where walls meet. A regular geometric array of identical cells with simple polygonal cross-sections can take only one of three forms: triangular, square or hexagonal. Honeycomb is constructed essentially as vertical plates which hang down. Of these only natural hexagons can divide up the space most efficiently. If we interrupt honeybee's by smoking them out of the hive we can find that the most recently built cells have a circular shape, whereas those just a little older have developed into hexagons. The worker bee's heat the wax with their bodies until it reaches about 45 C and flows like a viscous liquid. Therefore hexagons result automatically as the wax cools from the pressure of each bee trying to make its cell as large as possible, adding internal pressure to mass and gravity. Hexagons are natures way of resolving all forms of circular bodies under pressure. Examples of this are many. When first made, the comb cells of the honeybee are cylindrical tubes, but they become more hexagonal in cross section as time goes by. Therefore this hexagonal architecture is not only because of the simple physical and natural phenomenon of mass and gravity but also due to the active participation of worker bee's providing warmth and internal pressure to the wax cylinder.
  • I joined the Space loop but could not post a thread. This is very topical but tends to need some knowledge of Space and UFO's. With 534 members surely a significant number will find it interesting enough to comment. So here we go - A monumental controversy has existed for more than 50 years on this topic. We get compelling evidence presented on hundreds of TV documentaries and other media that Alien UFO's do exist, countered by numerous Government cover-ups to the contrary. The answer is simple - If Bob Lazar is telling the truth, then Alien spacecraft have definitely either landed or crashed on Earth over the past 50 years or so. If he is lying, then the entire issue is one of natural phenomena, is man made, or is just fictional Startrek material. I have seen countless TV programs on the subject including those about Bob Lazar and read many links on the web about it. Bob Lazar is ultra-convincing with an astounding degree of intimate scientific knowledge and details of his work at Area 51 on anti-gravity reverse engineering. Nobody else has ever come so convincingly close to the subject in such scientific and 'authentic' detail as he has. My opinion ? I believe that Bob Lazar is telling the truth. What is your opinion ?

  • I have recently solved two problems that irritated me. One was the tab screen opening with "about blank" and the other was Edge taking ages to open, hanging on a white screen. Solution - Open Edge, click the 3 dots at top right of the screen, then - Settings>System and Performance. 1. "Use hardware acceleration when available" - set to OFF. This corrected the "about blank" on tab opening, Edge now opens immediately with a Bing search tab. 2. "Startup boost" - set to ON. This corrected Edge hanging on opening - it now opens very quickly with no white screen lag.
  • A factor that can only be beneficial to the operation of Windows is to check the Background Apps and turn OFF all those which are unnecessary. Windows default is that all these apps are turned ON. When I checked my Background Apps there were 34 listed and all of them were ON !! I think that a Windows update did this, since I had edited the list some months ago. I have now set only 14 turned ON. Apps running in the background all take energy and slow down the computer and 34 is a lot of apps. To see all the background Apps - type in "Background Apps" in the taskbar search and click open.

  • The ISS crew comprises of seven people : five astronauts — four American, one German and two Russian cosmonauts. The ISS is divided into two separate sections - an American and a Russian. The Russians are responsible for keeping the station in orbit and all taxi rides for the crew to access the ISS and return to Earth, plus all supply trips. They must be having an enjoyable time in weightless arguments about the Ukraine crisis. If Russia pull out of their ISS commitments, the crew will be returned to Earth (Russia) and the ISS will no longer be kept in orbit and crash to Earth. https://tinyurl.com/3fvn9psw

  • An intensely annoying feature of Edge is a small black icon at the extreme top left of the screen on the tab bar - It looks like a small rounded square with a curved arrow pointing to the left. This is the Tab Actions Menu.

Vertical tabs includes a small menu which shows down the L/H side of the screen. Vertical tabs may have some obscure use, but not for me. To get back to horizontal tabs - click the icon and select "Turn off vertical tabs"

  • Bananas are among the world's most popular fruit. Bananas are also fairly nutritious, and contain high amounts of fibre and antioxidants. Over 90% of the calories in bananas come from carbs. As the banana ripens, the starch in it turns into sugar. For this reason, unripe (green) bananas are high in starch and resistant starch, while ripe (yellow) bananas contain mostly sugar. A medium-sized (118 grams) banana contains about 105 calories. The greener the banana is, the greater the content of resistant starch. Resistant starch has been linked to several health benefits : Bananas are a good source of several nutrients, including potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C and fibre. They also contain various antioxidants and plant compounds. Bananas are high in fibre. Unripe bananas are also rich in resistant starch and pectin, which can provide numerous health benefits. Taking 24 grams of banana starch each day for 4 weeks caused a weight loss of 2.6 lbs (1.2 kg), while also improving insulin sensitivity in patients studied. Bananas are high in potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. Bananas are a good source of magnesium, a mineral that plays hundreds of roles in the body. Magnesium may protect against heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Unripe, green bananas are rich in resistant starch and pectin, which may promote digestive health and reduce the risk of colon cancer. Eating a moderate amount of bananas should not raise blood sugar levels significantly. However, diabetics should be careful with fully ripe bananas. Bananas don't seem to have any known negative health effects, but they may cause allergic reactions in some individuals with latex allergy. Although bananas are unsuitable on a low-carb diet and may cause problems for some diabetics, overall they are an incredibly healthy food.
