Since its launch five(!) years ago, Glossier has given us many gifts in the form of Super serums, a fragrance for You, and dog toys (because, why not?). But with the brand’s latest launch, it has finally delivered the gift I have been wanting for years: the final nail in matte skin’s coffin. I get it — some people want to remove all signs of oiliness from their complexion. But dewy skin, for me, has always felt more fun, more natural, and more lively. If your beauty icon is also a glazed donut then Glossier’s latest launch is for you. As of Monday, October 14, please welcome Futuredew, the brand’s first oil-serum hybrid. Glossier describes the one-ounce bottle as “your skin, but glowier.” If the Glossier aesthetic is bright, natural-looking skin, Futuredew has it distilled down to one product. The product description reads: “You know that dewy sheen you get after you put on all your serums and moisturizers? The one that looks so good but evaporates as soon as you leave the bathroom? We created Futuredew to bottle that effect and make it last.” And in the process they essentially created a new category: aesthetic skin care. The glaz...

Scott Baio Will Address Nicole Eggert’s Accusation That He ‘Molested’ Her

A Facebook Live addressing the allegations is happening “very soon today!” Baio writes on social media Scott Baio says “in moments” he will address former “Charles in Charge” co-star Nicole Eggert’s accusation that he “molested” her when the actress was a minor. The actor and outspoken Donald Trump supporter said on Saturday afternoon he will host a Facebook Live “very soon today” to “prove her claims are 100% lies!” Baio says he will post all of his “evidence” on Facebook and Twitter afterward. A few hours earlier, Eggert used Twitter to accuse Baio of “fingering” her when she was as young as 14. Eggert says it happened “in his garage at his house.” Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep. https://t.co/YrQydBKd0a Also Read: ‘Wonder Years’ Mom Says Show Axed Over ‘Ridiculous’ Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Fred Savage I’m about to do a Facebook live to prove her claims are 100% lies! #NicoleEggert https://t.co/WcAsTmjhvD “I do NOT want ANY of MY words edited,” Baio then wrote. “I WILL post every piece of evidence on my social media (FB & Twitter) afterwards.” ,@NicoleEggert @ScottBaio Scott’s l...

Now, solar energy can power air conditioner, refrigerator

Making a marked departure from the conventional system, a Chennai-based company provides a comprehensive system that ensures that a 2 kW solar panel can power a 1.5 tonne air conditioner, one 300 litre refrigerator, five fans, five LED tube lights (4 feet in length and 16 watts each) and eight LED bulbs (6 watts each) during the day. There are many innovative systems that make this possible.In lieu of silicon crystalline panels that are routinely used, Basil Energetics Pvt Ltd uses thin film solar panels. Though efficiency of thin film panel is the same as silicon panel at 25 degree C, the energy yield of thin film is higher than silicon panel. “This is because power rating is done at 25 degree C. In India, the outside temperature far exceeds 25 degree C, especially during summer. And for every 1 degree C increase in temperature, the loss in power rating is 0.5 per cent in the case of silicon panels; it is only 0.25 per cent with thin films. So 5 per cent more energy output is achieved by thin film panels,” said Dr. R. Ramarathnam, Chairman of Basil Energetics. “Solar panels need light not heat. That’s why they are more efficient in higher latitudes.” Another advantage with the ...

Build knowledge, gain experience and sharpen your skills with the ultimate adventure-travel resource. From e-bikes to Uber, EVs to public transport; your resource for reviews, news and advice focusing on urban lifestyle. Renault claims its Trafic Trader Life is in response to industry demand for a delivery or small business van (2.5-2.5 tonne GVM) focused on minimum cost of ownership, for either single vehicle owner/drivers or fleet operators. In Renault PR speak, the Life is “optimised for the busy urban environment where high performance is less important than low running costs.” With sharp launch pricing of $29,990 driveaway for ABN holders, the Life’s low-cost specification certainly hits a sweet spot, given Canberra’s by-partisan support to increase the instant tax write-off threshold for SMEs from $25,000 to $30,000 in the next federal budget. However, while the idea of instantly writing-off the total cost of a new van might appeal to accountants, such cost-cutting also results in having to ‘pay a price’ in important areas like safety and practicality. The Life’s sub-$30K driveaway launch pricing puts it in the bargain basement wi...

Subsidy scheme: Two months on, Haryana farmers struggling to get their dues | chandigarh

Other cities – Noida, Gurgaon, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Bhopal , Chandigarh , Dehradun, Indore, Jaipur, Lucknow, Patna, Ranchi Sizeable beneficiaries of the scheme, under centrally-sponsored Sub-Mission on Agricultural Mechanisation (SMAM), for the purchase of agriculture implements are awaiting the subsidies since May this year. As per the officials in the state agriculture department, the SMAM scheme was introduced in February this year with the aim of promoting agricultural mechanisation and encouraging farmers to end stubble burning. A total subsidy of ₹34.44 crore for the purchase of 1,588 implements was allocated by the government.  Farmers, who were selected for the scheme in a lucky draw, had purchased the agriculture implements including tractors, reaper binder, straw baler, paddy transplanter and other implements for the management of crop residue. Now, they are running from pillar to post to get subsidy between ₹1 lakh to ₹7 lakh.   “After my name was announced in the luck draw, I got the eligibility certificate for subsidy of ₹2 lakh for purchasing a tractor. As this certificate was valid only for 15 days, all farmers were told to purchase implements within two w...

Please Don’t Take Solar Or Battery Advice From 7′s Sunrise!

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> If you told me two years ago you spent $46,000 on a solar and battery system and it saved you $4,000 a year, my reaction would be, “I’m sorry.  I’m so, so sorry.” That’s because the battery portion of your installation will have only lost you money.  In South Australia it is now possible — although difficult — for batteries to save households money, but that’s only because there is now a huge subsidy in that state and that was not available two years ago.  The only reason you’re saving any money at all is because of blended payback where the good return from solar power hides the poor or negative return from batteries. You may think I’m being harsh, but if your goal is to save money and you are faced with two options: If you choose option 2, I have no problem at all calling that decision stupid.  The problem is not everyone is aware option 1 is a much better choice, so they’re not so much stupid as ignorant. One reason there is so much ignorance around is because the media enjoys shoveling out steaming piles of misleading information...

Metallic glass 600 times stronger than steel will BOUNCE if its dropped

But a new type of glass that is stronger than titanium while also being elastic could soon be used to create phones that are able to bounce when they are dropped. The material, which is a form of metallic glass made from iron, could also be used to build new types of body armour and help protect satellites from meteor strikes while in orbit. Engineers have developed a new material (crystal structure pictured left and right at different magnifications) that is 588 times more resistant to damage than stainless steel and can bounce. It could be used to create new types of body armour, to protect satellites from meteors or to prevent phones from smashing when dropped Tests have shown the material, which is called SAM2X5-630, is 588 times more resistant to damage than stainless steel and has twice the resistance of tungsten carbide ceramic used in body armour. Professor Veronica Eliasson, an engineer at the University of Southern California, said the material’s unusual chemical structure is what makes it so hard yet also elastic. Engineers at the University of California San Diego used a technique called spark-plasma sintering to create the new metallic glass. They did this by...

Komodo Dragons Are Covered in a Suit of Armor Under Their Scales

The Komodo dragon is one of the most fearsome animals to roam the planet. These giant monitor lizards can grow up to 10 feet long and an average adult in the wild weighs up to 150 pounds—though there have been reports of one toppling the scales at 366 pounds. In their native habitat, they have no predators and therefore dominate over the chain of Indonesian islands they call home. Stealthy and quick, they also have a superior immune system to stave off illness. With everything going for them, it may not seem like they need another advantage, but researchers have just discovered an extra layer of protection on their bodies. In a recently published report, a group of scientists found that Komodo dragons actually have a suit of armor made from tiny bones under their scales. This bony “chain mail” was discovered after a deceased adult specimen underwent a powerful CT scan. These tiny bones are called osteoderms and are present in many different lizards, frogs, and crocodile species. While it’s not surprising that osteoderms are part of the Komodo dragon’s anatomy, this is the first time it’s been examined in detail—and the findings are incredible! The adult dragon scanned was one of...

Twitter prankster convinces friend that the inside of a cheese grater is a new nightclub

A post on Twitter from a girl inviting a friend to go to a brand new nightclub has gone viral after it emerged a photo of the so-called club was really the inside of of a cheese grater.

Kelly (surname withheld to protect privacy) was date raped at 25 and it wasn’t her first

Kelly (surname withheld to protect privacy) was date raped at 25 and it wasn’t her first assault. At 18, a guy she’d met at a nightclub forced her to give him a hand job with her right hand. “The only really good thing that I ever took away from it was that I probably saved myself from actually getting raped that night,” she says. Kelly told her story to the ABC podcast Ladies, We Need to Talk, and as you’d expect, this story is pretty heavy with details of sexual abuse and trauma. Being intimate and enjoying sex is a lot harder if you’ve been abused or sexually assaulted, but it’s not impossible. One in five Australian women over the age of 15 have experienced sexual violence and 1.4 million Australians have lived through childhood sexual abuse. If you’re dealing with the fallout of sexual assault, how do you pick up the pieces and be intimate again? “I didn’t have sex for three years. Honestly, I was like, you know what? I’ll never do it again because I am terrified,” Kelly says. Kelly’s two assaults have left her “completely scarred” — she’s never had sex sober, but has slept with...
