Probiotics: A Complete Guide To Health Benefits & More

The microbiome, the collection of bacteria living in the gut, plays an integral role in overall health. Two of the most popular ways to take care of your gut and give it the support it needs are probiotic supplements and probiotic-rich foods, like yogurt and kimchi. Here, we’ll dive into what exactly probiotics can do for you, your gut, and your overall health. Many people think about bacteria in terms of germs that make you sick. But probiotics are bacteria that help support good health, especially in the gut.* These friendly bugs are key for maintaining the microbiome.*  Where can you get them? Probiotic bacteria are found in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, and tempeh. But you can also find them as supplements, including refrigerated capsules, shelf-stable pills, and powders. Probiotic bacteria are involved in a wide range of functions from aiding in digestion and absorption to priming the immune system and producing neurotransmitters. When you take a probiotic supplement, you add more of these good bugs to your gut.* As Robert Rountree, M.D., renowned integrative physician, explains it, “The probiotics are like good cops. We’re puttin...

The next time you’re browsing the racks of your local gun shop and having a tough

The next time you’re browsing the racks of your local gun shop and having a tough time choosing just one new toy to take home, consider this: The SHOT Show is a gun show that’s about 217 times bigger than my hometown of St. Charles, Kentucky (population 277, last I checked). That’s a bunch of the kind of stuff—guns, knives, ammo, decoys—that puts a smile on my face. It’s all, in a word, distracting. But along with the rest of the F&S staff, I’m doing my best to stay focused and update you on only the best of the cool new stuff each day. Maybe you knew it was inevitable that Sig Sauer would introduce a bolt-action rifle, but I’ll bet you never envisioned this. The new CROSS was designed with input from hunters, military snipers, and top long-range shooters—folks who know how a rifle should perform. It was also created to especially appeal to backcountry hunters who wear out their boots faster than you wear out truck tires. The rifle weighs less than 6.5 pounds, has a folding stock, a one-piece receiver, and is chambered for the 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester, and Sig Sauer’s new high-pressure cartridge, the .277 Sig Fury. It does not look like your granddad’s deer rifle. Hell...

Verizon and Google ink deal to offer YouTube TV to Verizon wireless and Fios subscribers

Just days after Google and Amazon buried the hatchet over their longstanding streaming feud, Google has made another interesting inroad in its bid to bring yet more ubiquity to its YouTube-based premium video efforts. Today, Verizon (which owns TechCrunch) and the search giant announced a new partnership where Verizon customers will be able to subscribe to YouTube TV through their accounts to watch “on whatever platform they choose,” in the words of Erin McPherson, Verizon’s head of content strategy and acquisition. That will mean, in Verizon terms, getting a YouTube TV stream if you are a 5G wireless home customer as part of an internet bundle, or as part of your Fios subscription if you are a customer of Verizon’s fiber-optic TV, telephone and internet service. It sounds like there will be other options to come. “Verizon will also offer unique, high-value YouTube TV promotions to customers across platforms,” the company added. YouTube TV is an all-in-one bundle that essentially replaces the kinds of packages offered by cable TV providers that includes some 70 networks such as ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, cable channels like HGTV, Food Network, TNT, TBS, CNN, ESPN, FX and on-demand v...

Coral Glades Boys and Girls Varsity Soccer Teams Defeat Boyd Anderson

It was a memorable day for Coral Glades High School as both the boys and girls varsity soccer teams won games against Boyd Anderson High School by a combined score of 15-0. The boys won their fifth game of the season scoring seven goals in a 7-0 win. The girls were able to top that with an 8-0 win to move to 6-5 on the season. After Coral Glades Boys Soccer was unable to get on the scoresheet following their draw against Coconut Creek High School on January 13, the Jaguars broke out on Wednesday behind a two-goal performance from Robert Banhegyesi. Giovannie Garcia added to his team-high seven goals, and Johann Morris and Johann Osorio each registered their first goal of the season. David Herrera and Hamza Fares scored the other two goals for the Jaguars while Lewis Mussingham recorded the shutout in net. “We were organized and disciplined defensively,” said Head Coach Robens Decius. “We need to play more aggressive offensively and score more goals.” To begin the season, the Jaguars scored six times in a win over Northeast High School. They also defeated Deerfield Beach, Coral Springs Charter, Pompano Beach and tied to Cypress Bay, JP Taravella, and Monarch, and Coconut Creek Hi...

As a Hackaday writer, you can never predict where the comments of your posts will go.

As a Hackaday writer, you can never predict where the comments of your posts will go. Some posts seem to be ignored, while others have a good steady stream of useful feedback. But sometimes the comment threads just explode, heading off into seemingly uncharted territory only tangentially related to the original post. Such was the case with [Steven Dufresne]’s recent post about decimal time, where the comments quickly became a heated debate about the relative merits of metric and imperial units. As I read the thread, I recalled any of the numerous and similarly tangential comments on various reddit threads bashing the imperial system, and decided that enough was enough. I find the hate for the imperial system largely unfounded, and so I want to rise to its defense. What is a system of units anyway? At its heart, is just a way to measure the world. I could very easily measure the length and width of a room using my feet, toe to heel. Most of us have probably done just that at some point, and despite the inconvenient and potentially painful problem of dealing with fractionalization of your lower appendage, it’s a totally valid if somewhat imprecise method. You could easily pace out...

The infinite triangular loop of arrows that we know as the recycling symbol adorns millions of plastic

The infinite triangular loop of arrows that we know as the recycling symbol adorns millions of plastic pop and water bottles we carefully sort in the blue bin. It comforts us with the idea that each one will be recycled over and over again forever.  Many bottles aren’t recycled at all, and those that do get recycled usually aren’t turned into other bottles or recycled again after that. Instead, they end up in the world’s landfills — or worse, in the ocean. In Canada, plastic bottles and caps were the top plastic trash items collected during shoreline cleanups in 2019, just behind cigarette butts. They’re also typically among the top three items in shoreline cleanups worldwide. Here’s a closer look at what actually happens to those bottles after use and what needs to happen to boost recycling in the future. The plastic used to make water and pop bottles is polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is also known as No. 1 plastic. The number is its “resin code,” which often appears in a triangle that resembles the recycling symbol. It’s technically one of the most recyclable plastics in use today. While many plastics degrade in qualit...

Roger Scruton changed the course of my life. He addressed my school’s philosophy society when I

Roger Scruton changed the course of my life. He addressed my school’s philosophy society when I was 16, speaking so compellingly about Wittgenstein and language that, when he finished, no one wanted to ask the first question. So, more to fill an awkward silence than anything else, I stuck my hand up and asked him what he saw as the role of a conservative thinker. ‘The role of a conservative thinker,’ he replied, in his charmingly diffident manner, ‘is to reassure the people that their prejudices are true.’ That beautiful aperçu never left me. It animated my career in politics, not least during the Brexit referendum. I spent part of my gap year in what we then still called Eastern Europe, observing the end of communism. Roger had given me various materials to carry to his dissident friends, so I watched the revolutions through Scrutonian eyes. Although it is nowadays fashionable to portray 1989 as a ‘return to Europe’, it was clear at the time that people mainly wanted an end to foreign occupation and a return to national sovereignty. Roger used to call it ‘the politics of the first person plural’: the need for a shared sense of identity in an open society. He was spot on. He alw...

Pretty, Powerful: Hokistrings Bracelets Raise Domestic Violence Awareness, Funds

BOSTON — When is a bracelet not just a bracelet? When it helps a battered women’s shelter halfway around the world. Ashley and Haley Kutzer, according to their mother, Donna Partamian-Kutzer, are both artistic and generous. The two teen sisters started Hokistrings, a line of beaded bracelets, last year. All the money from the sale of the popular bracelets goes toward the Women’s Support Center (WSC), a shelter for women escaping domestic violence in Yerevan. WSC Action Committee: From l to r. Bottom Row: Haley Kutzer, Ashley Kutzer. Top Row l to r: Donna Partamian-Kutzer, Maro Matosian, Lucine Kapreilian, Nancy Barsamian, Lenna Garibian and Laura Purutyan “My daughter Ashley has had a long-time hobby of making beaded jewelry. Last year she began a new design and her peers took an immediate liking to her bracelets. What was a simple hobby suddenly began to take up much more of her time as she was taking orders from many of her friends from school and at work. Ashley decided that she could ask people for a few dollars for each bracelet and then donate the money to a good cause. It was right around this time that Lenna Garibian spoke about WSC at an event at Holy Translators Church...
