Coronavirus is revolutionizing scientific practices and communication. Here’s how.

frank lampard

MILWAUKEE – In June 2019, a team of scientists and editors launched an online server where medical researchers could submit articles. The team’s goal was to help the medical community more quickly share research findings and learn from one another. 

By the end of the year, the team was receiving about 75 submissions per week.

Then COVID-19 appeared. 

Now, nearly that many submissions come in each day.

“I’m thrilled, I’m really thrilled!” said Harlan Krumholz, one of the founders of the server, medRxiv (pronounced “med archive”). “It’s really speeding the ability for scientists to be able to communicate with each other and understand what each other is doing.”

Just as everyday life has been affected by COVID-19, science itself has changed.

If Your Vitamins Are Missing These Ingredients, You’re Shopping Wrong

frank lampard

Have you ever browsed the aisles of your local drugstore or scrolled through Amazon, trying to figure out exactly which supplement is best? You might want to start taking vitamin D, but just looking at all the ones that are for sale out there can seem overwhelming. So you inevitably choose the one with the highest ratings or the coolest-looking bottle or the kind that you’ve seen on your friend’s kitchen counter.

While it can be easy to go with something that’s popular or that your friends trust, there are some things to keep in mind when shopping for vitamins. You’ll want to be sure that what you’re buying is actually effective and safe—because who wants to shell out money for something that isn’t going to help you at all?

And it’s important to note that your diet should always come first when it comes to getting those nutrients you

School District Opts To Reopen Schools, Make Face Masks Mandatory

frank lampard

TAMPA, FL — The Hillsborough County superintendent of schools has announced that students and staff returning to public schools on Aug. 10 will be required to wear face masks.

After meeting with health officials, business leaders, teachers and school administrators, Superintendent Addison Davis said he believes masks are the best option at this time for keeping students and staff safe from the spread of the coronavirus on campus.

The district will provide three reusable face coverings for each student on the first day of school and three reusable face coverings for each staff member during back-to-school pre-planning.

“The CDC has identified face masks as one of the most effective tools in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” Davis said. “I believe face coverings is the best option we have for providing additional protection for everyone on our campuses.”

He said the county has already acquired 760,000 masks through purchases and donations.

  • You can have multiple orgasms by taking breaks during sex, practicing kegel exercises, stimulating different areas each time, and more.

  • Edging, which refers to purposely delaying an orgasm, may lead to a continuous string of orgasms.

  • You can also try tightening your pelvic floor while you masturbate, which can lead to greater arousal.

Black-Owned Health and Wellness Businesses to Support Now and Always

frank lampard

As the country is still grappling with the tragic death of George Floyd and the ongoing protests in its wake, musician and activist Calvin Martyr has launched #BlackOutDay2020 on July 7. This campaign calls for an economic boycott where the Black community pauses on buying to highlight their economic spending power. If they do spend money, they are encouraged to buy from Black-owned businesses only.

Just like the fashion and beauty industries, the wellness and health space is full of brands that are founded and run by Black women and men. Whether they’re selling aromatherapy candles, producing fitness-minded podcasts or shattering stigmas of what it means to be “well” for Black women, each of these companies was once just a dream and is now a hard-earned reality.

But don’t just shop these Black-owned businesses today, or this week. Support them regularly, engage with them on social media and spread the

Republicans Want To Make Sure You Can’t Sue Your Boss If You Get Sick

frank lampard

With millions of workers returning to their jobs amid a still-raging coronavirus pandemic, the top Republican priority for the next big coronavirus bill is preventing them from suing their employers if they get sick.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Monday that his “number one” policy for a bill sometime this month is to block “an epidemic of lawsuits” against businesses, schools and health care providers from employees, customers, students and patients.

“Unless you were grossly negligent or intentionally engaging in harmful conduct, you should be protected from liability during this process,” McConnell said at an event in Kentucky, claiming there has been a surge of lawsuits relating to the pandemic.  

“There’s an army of trial lawyers out there ready to take advantage of the situation,” McConnel said. “We cannot get back to normal if we have an epidemic of lawsuits.”

Younger people are driving new cases of COVID-19, putting the elderly at risk

frank lampard

People under 40 now make up the majority of COVID-19 cases, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from 17 states. We found that the average age of a new person reported to have coronavirus has fallen significantly since March. 

Though we are now seeing more infections among young people, the elderly suffer more severe outcomes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 8 out of 10 COVID-19-related deaths reported in the U.S. have been among adults aged 65 and older. Young people may be spreading the virus to more vulnerable Americans.

COVID-19 cases vs. deaths

In Lousiana, coronavirus has already killed more than 2,000 people over 80, compared with just 14 deaths in patients under 30. As of Thursday, the number of infected people doubled in less than a week.

In Idaho, which has seen a 54% spike in cases since last week, patients between 18

Summer is in full swing—but following months of quarantine due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it looks a little bit different this year. People have been spending more time in their own backyards, and outdoor recreation—like biking and roller skating—is more popular than ever. Here at Reviewed, we’ve spent the last few months tracking where to buy hard-to-find products, from hand sanitizer and toilet paper at the start of quarantine to bike helmets and loungewear more recently. 

While many of us have now adapted to the “new normal,” there are still some things that are in high demand (and low supply), including bikes, inflatable pools, and face masks. Below are 10 popular products that continue to sell out at retailers across the

By now, we know that spending too much time sitting down could take years off our life. Several studies have shown that increased periods of time spent sitting down could put us at greater risk of obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. You only need to look Online Gambling’s models of future Netflix addicts – red-eyes, washed out pale skin and morbidly overweight bodies – to be put off ever touching base with your sofa again. 

But not so fast. The key to good health could lie in the way we choose to sit, rather than how much time we spend in sedentary positions. A study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the habits of the Hadza tribe who live in Tanzania, East Africa;
