Former Qatari Princess found dead at age 45



A former Qatari Princess, Kasia Gallanio, has been found dead in Spain, from an alleged drug overdose, aged 45

According to Spanish newspapers, police officers discovered the body of Kasia Gallanio in a bed, with no signs of physical violence.

She had recently been denied custody of her daughters and was living in Spain.

Gallanio had allegedly been battling problems with alcoholism and depression.

She was also fighting an ugly custody battle with her former husband and Qatari Prince Abdelaziz Khalifa Al Thani.

73-year-old Al-Thani is a former Qatari oil and finance minister and uncle of the Emir of Qatar. His father rules the Gulf state for over 20 years. Al-Thani was exiled in 1995 following a coup, where he relocated to Paris.

Gallanio met the Prince in Paris, and the couple later married and had three daughters together. After separating, the couple endured a decade-long ugly custody battle.

Gallanio relocated to Marbella, Spain where she continued to fight for sole custody of the children.

However, in 2018 she lost custody of the children amid a deteriorating battle with alcohol and depression.

Gallanio’s death comes shortly after she publicly accused Al Thani of sexually abusing one of their three daughters.

According to French Newspapers, one of the daughters filed a complaint accusing her father of forcing her to sleep in his bed and touching her chest and buttocks between the ages of 9 and 15.

Gallanio gave an interview to Women’s World TV saying, ‘It’s time to speak up. It’s time to let people know that it’s not all glamour and perfect.

‘I do also struggle and I go through things, and it’s been difficult. Not just for me hut for the children.’

A police investigation was launched into the serious allegations but the 73-year-old billionaire continues to deny any wrongdoing.

Further investigations are underway as well as an autopsy of Gallanio’s body.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?



Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns



As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
