    CLEANING up after pets can be a time-consuming process. But one pet owner has come up with a brilliant and quick hack to drastically reduce your hoovering time - and all you need is a lint roller. 2A lint roller is an effective way of getting rid of pet hairCredit: @nickisvids/Tiktok The TikTok account Suki & Asher shared a video of themselves using a roller, which costs from around £1, on their black rabbit - with a huge amount of hair coming off onto the sticky plastic. The video quickly attracted comments from people praising the hack, with one writing: "GENIUS my bunny sheds so much in the summer and no matter what we can’t get it all off." Fur mum Nicki then duetted with the video as she tried the hack out on her own rabbit. "I had no idea rabbits shed this much, and I had no idea this was going to work," she began. However, after using the roller to get off the hair, she exclaimed: "Holy cow, it works!" Some people...
    A personal trainer has revealed what really happens to your body when you give up carbohydrates, and the positive and negative effects you can expect when you cut them almost completely. Rachael Attard, from Sydney, explained that while a low-carb diet can be beneficial for many body types looking to lose weight, it can also cause some difficult side effects - including headaches, digestive issues and short-term fatigue. Instead of cutting them altogether, Rachael explained that a better approach is to limit your intake of specific carbs and time them around when you're working out so your body uses the energy effectively.

    Consuming too much salt can lead to long-term health conditions like high blood pressure. Peter Dazeley/Getty Images You can reduce your sodium intake by tracking your diet, opting for low sodium products, and limiting processed foods. Adults should consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day, but most people in the US consume about 50% more than that.

    We've all been told to wear face masks to reduce the spread of coronavirus, but it turns out the material your mask is made of may affect your risk, a new study suggests.  An N95 mask, which filters out nearly all particles both large and small, reduced the odds of transmitting COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, the most. But some masks were actually worse than not wearing a mask at all because they turned large potentially infected droplets into smaller droplets than can linger in the air longer. The team, from Duke University, says the findings provide evidence that not all face masks are created equally and can give Americans advice on what to and not to wear when going out in public.   Researchers tested 14 different types of masks and found that N95s (#14) were the best followed by three-layer surgical masks (#1) and various cotton masks (#4-10 and #13) For the study, published in the journal Science Advances, the team looked at 14 different types of face coverings. Researchers cut a hole in front of...

    Sleep paralysis isn't harmful, but it can be frightening. skaman306/Getty Images Sleep paralysis is caused by an irregular sleep-wake cycle. During sleep paralysis, your body stops muscle movement while you're still conscious and not in REM sleep.   You may be at a higher risk for sleep paralysis if you have narcolepsy, sleep apnea, PTSD, an irregular sleep schedule, or if it runs in your family.  This article was medically reviewed by Alex Dimitriu, MD, psychiatrist and founder of Menlo Park Psychiatry and Sleep Medicine.  Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice. Sleep paralysis is the feeling of being unable to move when you're falling asleep or waking up. That's because people experiencing sleep paralysis are awake and alert, but unable to move their muscles.  The condition is relatively common, says Gonzalo Laje, MD, director of Washington Behavioral Medicine Associates in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Roughly 8% of people in the U.S. will experience sleep paralysis at least once in their lives.  Although the experience can be scary, it is not harmful and most episodes resolve on their own within minutes....
    Joanna NeliusJust now•Filed to:Cox CommunicationsCox CommunicationsInternet!GPNSaveScreenshot: Overwatch (Blizzard Entertainment) Cox has officially rolled out its own “Elite Gamer” internet add-on service in the U.S., something it started testing in April 2019 in select cities. Elite Gamer is a Gamers Private Network (GPN) that helps reduce lag while playing an online game. New and existing customers anywhere in the U.S. can now try Cox’s new service for an extra $7 a month if you are using your own modem. If you use Cox’s modem instead, its “Panoramic Wifi Gateway,” there’s no extra cost for Elite Gamer, but you will pay $11 a month to rent Cox’s all-in-one modem and router. GPNs target gaming-specific internet traffic and attempt to route those data packets through a faster “path” to reduce lag. If you’ve ever played Apex Legends or World of Warcraft and noticed that there was a delay between pressing a key and your character reacting on screen, that’s because your gaming data packets had a long way to travel from your computer and back again to register the action you wanted to...
    Experts agree that the safest tan is not tan at all.  Tanning is a sign of skin damage and can be equally harmful as a sunburn. There are ways you can still get tan and reduce your risk of skin cancer like avoiding tanning beds and using self-tanning products. This article was medically reviewed by Trevan D. Fischer, MD, a surgical oncologist and assistant professor of surgical oncology at John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California.

    There are caveats, and not just the lack of support for console or mobile players. Elite Gamer is enabled on a title-by-title basis, and the compatibility list won’t always make you happy. Cox mostly covers the bases for games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Overwatch and Rainbow Six: Siege, but it’s not a comprehensive list — we didn’t see Valorant when we wrote this, for example. You’re trusting that Cox will improve the traffic quality for a game in a timely fashion, and it may be less compelling if you have to wait months to claim a competitive edge. And while Cox told News Brig that this doesn’t violate the spirit of net neutrality, including the 2015 rules that were scrapped by Ajit Pai’s FCC, it’s still true that you’re paying extra to get better performance for certain kinds of software. The company is just going about things in a different, more neutral method — it’s defining the routing once your data leaves the Cox network, rather than managing things inside that network. This could run on “any ISP’s network,”...
    Having a certain amount of body fat is healthy. We use it to keep our bodies warm, to burn for energy, and to protect our joints. With that said, there’s healthy body fat and then there’s unhealthy body fat. One of the unhealthy fats is called visceral fat and it’s not one you can necessarily see or experience, which makes it a bit more deadly than other types. In fact, visceral fat is so dangerous that it is oftentimes referred to as “active fat” because it can “actively” increase the risk of serious health problems. The good news is that visceral fat is relatively easy to reduce and manage! While lifestyle changes are an important part of the process — incorporating exercise and stress reduction methods — visceral fat reacts quickly to diet changes. In particular, upping the ante when it comes to veggies, fruits, and whole grains and decreasing causal foods including highly processed products filled with sugar, refined ingredients, and hydrogenated oils.

    (CNN)The coronavirus crisis has many people glued to their smartphone screens for more and more hours each day, even if they don't want to be. In fact, sheltering in place can lead to a nearly 60% increase in the amount of content people consume across all devices, according to a March report from Nielsen.Even before coronavirus lockdowns and increased time at home leading to more screen time, many people had reported feeling addicted to their smartphones. More than a quarter of parents and 36% of teens wake up to check their phones at least once at night, and more than half of teens and parents said they feel distracted by their mobile device at least once a day, according to a 2019 report from Common Sense Media. American teens spent an average of seven hours and 22 minutes on screens each day in 2019 — not including screens used for school work.
