A New Study Says Low-Carb Diets May Help You Lose Weight. But Are Carbs Really So Bad For You?

A new study suggests that low-carb diets may help people keep weight off and even drop extra pounds, adding to the confusion about the health benefits — or detriments — of carbohydrates.

For the study, which was published in The BMJ, researchers put 234 overweight adults on a 10-week weight-loss diet. More than half of them successfully lost about 10% of their body weight during that time. From there, they were then assigned to follow either a low-carb diet (20% of total calories from carbohydrates, 60…

This Wine Advent Calendar Sold Out In Less Than a Day

A wine Advent calendar is an ideal, boozy way to count down the days until the holidays (or, for some, a good way to cope with the imminent stress of the season) — which is why it’s regrettable but hardly surprising that Aldi’s wine Advent calendar sold out within minutes of its first day on the market in America.

The calendars, which have been a confirmed hit for British stores across the pond, contained 24 6.37-ounce bottles of 12 different wines for the sweet price of $69.99, or $2.92 a bottle…

Review: Palm's Tiny Smartphone-For-Your-Smartphone Is Novel But Nonsensical

November 14, 2018

Remember Palm? No? Here's a refresher: The company, founded in 1992, popularized the personal digital assistant, and made smartphones like the Palm Treo and Centro before the iPhone hit the scene. In 2009, the company introduced its Palm Pre smartphone, a forward-thinking device with a brand new operating system, a (mediocre) slider keyboard, and even wireless charging support. It didn't sell well, and the company was soon acquired by HP, which quickly discontinued the company's products and sold …

'Saturday Night Live' Mocks Fox News' Coverage of the Migrant Caravan

Fox News' intense coverage of the migrant caravan was the subject of this week's "Saturday Night Live" cold open.

The show mocked what it saw as fear-mongering rhetoric used by conservative media. The sketch parodied an episode of "The Ingraham Angle," with host Laura Ingraham played by 'SNL's Kate McKinnon, commenting on the thousands of migrants making their way through Mexico in the run-up to Tuesday's midterm elections.

"Tonight we're live from the Arizona bo…

The story of recovery: how the Ukrainian pharmaceutical market is getting over the crisis

Hryvnia devaluation in 2015 prompted Ukrainians to opt for more affordable domestic medicines instead of expensive imports. It soon affected the situation on the entire pharmaceutical market. Despite the crisis, an increase in unit sales (by packages sold) stimulated local companies to invest extra money in production facilities and new products.

A state reimbursement program became another driver for the domestic pharmaceutical industry: the state is returning the cost of some drugs. The Mind has stud…
