Elsa Pataky Admits Chris Hemsworth Marriage Isn't Perfect

Elsa Pataky's birthday tribute to Chris Hemsworth is just a-Thor-able.

To commemorate the Marvel star's 40th birthday, his wife of 12 years shared a cute snap of the two at what appears to be an arena event in which Chris is covering his mouth in shock.

"That's exactly the face a made when I turned 40 my love," the Fast & Furious actress captioned her Aug. 11 Instagram post. "But don't worry, it's gonna be ok! I'll be here for you too hold your hand and give you all my beauty secrets, even if you look better than ever. Happy birthday @chrishemsworth!"

The longtime couple have often given glimpses into t…

I Didn’t Want to Push My Aunt to Get the Vaccine. Now I Live With Regrets

In normal times, the ICU is a dreadful place.

Sickness lingers like a fog. You can feel it, sense it, even hear it—the machinery pumping, the alarms ringing, the nurses scrambling.

In pandemic times, the ICU is chilling. Death lives here.

Medical staff members wear green biohazard suits, face shields, latex gloves and shoe coverings. Strips of red tape—“ISOLATION,” they read—mark the windows and doors of individual rooms.

Behind each is a patient who cannot breathe on their own, kept alive by a ventilation machine that is connected to an invasive tube running down their windpipe and into the lungs. Each room is almost identical: a person, some on their stomachs and others on their backs, sedated and paralyzed, roughly a dozen patches…

10 Ways the World Got Better In 2022_2

Over the past year, the headlines have been dominated by alarming events: the Russian invasion of Ukraine, high inflation, supply chain shortages, and the threat of food insecurity for many nations. But 2022 was also a year of milestones toward a better future, scientific breakthroughs, and stories of hope. Here’s a look at 10 stories of human progress from the last 12 months.

1. We found out that civilization reached peak agricultural land

For nearly all of human history, producing more food required more land. But starting in the early 1900s, and continuing through the next 100 years, four powerful forces—synthetic nitrogen fertilizer, synthetic pesticides, hydrocarbon-powered mechanization, and improved genetic selection—allowed humani…

NASA’s Big Plans to Collide With an Asteroid

Dimorphos is easily one of the least interesting objects in the solar system. It’s a rock—a moonlet, really—measuring just 160 m (525 ft.) across, orbiting the asteroid Didymos, which itself measures only 780 m (2,560 ft). Located 11 million km (6.8 million mi.) from Earth, the Didymos-Dimorphos system is just one tiny part of the river of rubble that circles the sun in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

But on Monday, Sept. 26 at precisely 7:14 p.m. ET, the attention of much of the astronomical community will be directed at Dimorphosคำพูดจาก สล็อตเว็บตรง. That’s the moment at which NASA’s DART spacecraft (short for Double Asteroid Re…

Cloudy Weather Will Stop Some People From Seeing the Solar Eclipse Today

Meteorologists are expecting mostly sunny skies throughout the path of totality for Monday’s total solar eclipse, but some areas will likely be obscured by clouds.

While it was previously predicted that clouds may obscure the historic event for people in half of the country, the National Weather Service’s latest eclipse prediction on Monday says clouds will be minimal, except for parts of Nebraska and South Carolina.

Thick clouds are gathering near Falls City, Neb., where meteorologists say there will be 90% cloud cover by 2 p.m. EDT. There may also be scattered thunderstorms in the Nebraska city, which will likely block the view of the eclipse. The weather is also looking “unfortunate” near Charleston, S.C., which is expected to have rain and up to 8…

How Storytelling Circles Combat Anxiety

Last December, as COVID-19 cases spiked and travel restrictions tightened, Deborah Goldstein and her 85-year-old mother journeyed to a faraway forest in Scotland.

There, instead of political pundits and dooming newsfeeds, they met an animal-loving teenager, her evil stepmother, and 12 magical elves. In two weeks, they’ll travel somewhere else—without leaving their Manhattan apartments.

That far-off destination in Scotland was the setting of one story told in the free, virtual circle that Goldstein, her mother, and dozens of others join every other Thursday. Hosted by the New York Society for Ethical Culture—one of many groups creating online spaces to share stories—the circle gives credence to a growing body of research connecting storytelling to prof…

Former Air Force Secretary Says Nobody in Pentagon Wants President Trump’s Space Force

The former Secretary of the Air Force says the military’s top brass doesn’t support President Donald Trump’s plan to create a Space Force.

“None of them are in favor of a Space Force, I say none of the top leaders, but they’re stuck. The President has said it and it will be interesting to see how they now deal with it,” Deborah Lee James, who was Secretary of the Air Force in the Obama Administration, said Monday at a Brookings Institution discussion about the newest proposed branch of the U.S. military.

Last month, Trump announced plans to create a new branch of the U.S military service he dubbed the Space Force – meant to be equal to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

“When it comes to defending America…

Melatonin Overdoses Are Spiking In Kids

More adults are using melatonin to get to sleep at night. Unfortunately, that means more young children are finding their parents’ tablets and gummies and taking them by accident.คำพูดจาก สล็อตเว็บตรง

A new analysis in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, which is published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, finds that melatonin was responsible for a surprisingly large share of emergency-department visits—7%—among infants and young kids who accidentally ingested a medication from 2019 to 2022. During that time span, melatonin caused about 11,000 such incidents.

Past research shows that from 2009 to 2020, emergency department…

Amazon fires three U.S. workers critical of warehouse conditions in pandemic

The company on Friday fired two user experience designers, Maren Costa and Emily Cunningham, for what it called repeated violations of internal policies, without specifying which ones.The two workers, who gained prominence for pushing the company to do more on climate change, had recently made public statements questioning Amazon’s pandemic safety measures and pledging to match donations of up to $500 to support staff at risk of getting the virus.

The e-commerce giant also said it dismissed Bashir Mohamed, a warehouse worker in Minnesota, for inappropriate language and behavior. Mohamed told Reuters he had been warning colleagues about the virus and calling on management to increase cleaning; Amazon has been “tripling down on deep cleaning,” it has said in recent statements.…

ASOS and DPD link up for charity clothing collection

The new “circular economy initiative” will enable customers to “quickly and easily” donate unwanted clothing to five charities: Scope, Marie Curie, British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross or The Children’s Society. Under the scheme, DPD will collect pre-loved clothing donations from ASOS customers’ doorsteps and deliver them to one of those five UK charities for free.
