Vice President Kamala Harris promotes Inflation Reduction Act



U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris has spent the day promoting the Inflation Reduction Act.

President Joe Biden signed the $750 million health care, tax and climate bill into law last month. It’s all in a bid to reduce the cost of living for Americans.

However, despite its very name aiming to reduce inflation, many experts say the bill is having an opposite effect on the cost of living.

As the midterms approach, inflation is at an all time high right across America.

Vice President Kamala Harris has promised the administration’s bill will help.

“I am here to thank you all, for one, helping to inform all the work we’ve done so far but then to make it real,” she said.

“It’s not about sitting around here and patting ourselves on the back when a bill gets passed. It’s not just about a press conference, it’s about making sure that people feel it,” Harris added.

The bill falls short of what progressive Democrats and climate activists were hoping for. But regardless, it’s still the largest federal clean energy investment in the nation’s history.

It is aimed at boosting solar panel manufacturing and wind turbines, as well as providing tax credits for electric vehicles.

Meanwhile, the government is now able to negotiate prices of certain prescription drugs and enforces a 15 per cent corporations tax for those companies earning $1 billion or more.

“Life shouldn’t be too expensive for working people. People work hard,” Harris said.

The Vice President continued, adding “they should be able to afford to pay their bills and feed their children and take a vacation from time to time.”

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.
