Support for Japan’s PM Suga slides as COVID cases rise in Tokyo Games

Published

on

As Olympics events such as the swimming get underway, support for Japan’s Prime Minister is taking a dive

Voter support for Mr. Suga slid nine points to 34 percent, its lowest since he took office last September.

Continuing the bad news nearly two-thirds of respondents say the country’s roll-out of coronavirus vaccinations is not going well.

The rollout has been hampered by a slow start and supplies snarls, resulting in less than a quarter so far receiving a full vaccination.

Suga’s ambition had been to contain the virus outbreak, preside over a successful Games and call a general election

That was thrown into doubt after a surge in COVID-19 infections which led to the fourth state of emergency in Tokyo and forced Olympic organisers to ban spectators from almost all venues.

Tokyo reported 1,429 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, almost double the number on the same day a week earlier.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?

Published

on

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.
