More details emerge in Monterey Park shooting



New information has come to light about the 10 people killed in Saturday’s mass shooting in California.

All victims killed in the Monterey Park shooting were celebrating Lunar New Year, aged 50 or older with two identified by the Coroner.

A gunman opened fire inside a dance studio, in the heart of Los Angeles’ Chinese community — killing 10 people and injuring 10 others.

The two identified are My Nhan and Lilan Li, both in their 60s.

Nhan’s family took to Twitter to share she had spent years going to the dance studio in Monterey Park on weekends.

“It’s what she loved to do,” the tweet said. “But unfairly, Saturday was her last dance.

“We are starting the Lunar New Year broken. We never imagined her life would end so suddenly.”

Her family described her warm smile and contagious kindness.

Three other women were killed – two in their 50s and one in her 60s.

Five men were killed, three in their 70s and two in their 60s.

Officials have not released the names of the remaining eight people killed in the attacks, waiting to notify their families.

A motive in the attack hasn’t yet been made clear, but the suspected gunman was found Sunday in a white van, and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The massacre was the nation’s fifth mass killing this month.

It is also the deadliest attack since May, when 21 people were killed in an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

L.A. County Sheriff Robert Luna says gun violence needs to stop.

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.
