8 buy that could save your life

In developing the new app, ResApp Health CEO Tony Keating said: “Many Australians snore, but few know that snoring is a leading indicator of a more serious condition, such as sleep apnoea.”

RELATED: Worrying trend Aussies are searching A Deloitte analysis in 2018 commissioned by charity the Sleep Health Foundation found obstructive sleep apnoea cost Australia $21.2 billion a year.

RELATED: Leukaemia survivor feeling ‘quite special’ RELATED: Doctor’s surprising shower advice People with sleep apnoea are also at an increased risk of car crashes (due to the aforementioned fatigue), as well as high blood pressure that can increase the chance of heart attack or stroke.

A new Australian app could potentially save your life by evaluating your risk of complications from sleep apnoea, a common disorder that affects around 5 per cent of all Australians, particularly men.

“As I suspected that I had sleep apnoea, I tried using a couple of freebie apps which were useful in determining hours slept and snoring issues but it is SleepCheck that is actually programmed to detect sleep apnoea,” another positive reviewer said.

How This Working Mum Motivated Herself To Exercise Daily For 3 Weeks

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve aborted an NTC plan within a week.

It customises exercise plans based on your fitness level and preferences, such as the number of sessions a week and whether you want to add runs or equipment like weights.

The last time I made it a point to move my flabby butt at least three times a week was four years ago.

So when my kids settled down to watch TV one night, I decided to attempt something constructive at the same time: I worked out next to them, to a short YouTube video by British personal trainer Lucy Wyndham-Read.

But I’m now on Week Two of a four-week plan and think I might actually complete it for the first time.

You might think it’s just the food you eat that controls the health of your gut, and it definitely does but there are all sorts of external factors that play a role, too.

Lab reveals how COVID tests work and why there are false positives

STEP THREE: THE RESULTS After the machines determine positive from negative, the results are analysed by scientists and potentially reviewed by pathologists, before the results are given to the requesting clinician and public health if need be.

“Some of the vagaries of testing for patients who might have low levels of the virus can fluctuate around the ‘cut-off’ that determines positive from negative, so sometimes retesting the same sample can give us more information, sometimes we’ll need to engage public health to request a retest.”

In some instances, the person behind the questionable positive will need to be re-swabbed, but Dr Bursle said in most cases the machine can pick up a true result.

Dermatologist reveals the common mistakes made when taking a bath

Certified dermatologist Stacy Chimento MD said it's important to ensure the water isn't too hot, to never shave prior to having a bath and to limit the soak time to a maximum of 15 minutes.

Dr Chimento said this is because shaving opens the pores on the skin, and taking a bath directly after can allow bacteria and germs to reach these areas.

Although essential oils smell amazing and can help the body relax when taking a bath, they are not beneficial for the skin as they don't dilute in the water.

According to Healthline, oatmeal baths are a 'make-at-home remedy' anyone can use to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as eczema.

Since a long soak in the bath can lead to dryness or skin irritation, it's essential to moisturise afterwards.

MacBook Showing 'Not Charging' When Plugged In? Apple Explains Why

The situation seems to be related to macOS 10.15.5’s new Battery Health Management feature that will mean the Mac stops charging its battery in an attempt to try and ensure that it lasts longer in the long run.

When battery health management is turned on, you might occasionally see “Not Charging” in the battery status menu of your Mac, and your battery’s maximum charge level might be lowered temporarily.

This is normal, and it’s how battery health management optimizes charging.

Part of doing that is the new feature that will try to prevent a battery spending too long at maximum capacity – something that’s known to cause premature aging.

However, while Battery Health Management is enabled by default, it can be disabled.

New Canadian clinical guidelines first to include chapter on weight stigma

Kirk says another recommendation made in the new guidelines is for health-care workers to assess their own attitudes and beliefs about weight.

the mindset of obesity on World Obesity the mindset of obesity on World Obesity Day According to a news release, the new clinical guideline’s key recommendations are: Ask permission to discuss weight: Health-care practitioners must recognize obesity as a chronic disease with stigma and should not assume all patients with obesity are prepared to address it.

Kirk says this will be the first time a national clinical guideline includes a chapter on weight stigma — globally.

Weight stigma and negative experiences can encourage patients to avoid seeking care in the future, which can have long-term consequences on their health, says Kirk.

Kirk says there is evidence that health-care providers with biased attitudes towards weight provide lesser quality health care to patients of higher weight.

Victoria records 439 cases, 11 deaths

All of the fatalities were connected to the state’s plagued aged-care facilities where a man in his 70s, another man and three women in their 80s, two men and three women in their 90s and a woman in her 100s all died.

It comes after Melburnians woke up to the second day of a strict stage-four lockdown, with many distraught business owners learning their fate on Monday afternoon.

Business closures will see another 250,000 Melbourne workers forced to stay home, with supermarkets, bottle shops, pharmacies, petrol stations, banks, newsagencies and post offices to remain open.

Construction sites and meatworks will run at reduced capacity, while other retail, manufacturing and administration businesses will be closed for six weeks.

Victoria recorded 429 new infections on Monday, with 13 people tragically succumbing to the virus.

5 Reasons For Hair Loss And How To Prevent It

When applied to the scalp, the stem cell proteins send signals to the hair follicles, to encourage the inactive cells to wake up – and work harder.

In fact, an independent laboratory study has shown that this Miracle Stem Cell Solution can help boost hair’s growth cycle by up to 50 per cent!

The brand (together with bio-scientists and trichologists) has developed a Miracle Stem Cell Solution treatment, which uses a high concentration of stem cell proteins and a cocktail of active ingredients – think nano-sized growth factors, peptides, cytokines, vitamins, antioxidants and DHT blockers (DHT is a hormone known to shrink the hair follicles, which can trigger the onset of hair loss).

Here are five reasons you’re losing hair and some solutions, from ways to destress and what food to eat for healthier hair, to an anti-hair loss treatment that uses stem cells.

And not cleansing the scalp of styling product build-up can suffocate the hair follicles – all of which can lead to hair loss.

France starts testing travellers from 16 nations for virus

PARIS: Travellers entering France from 16 countries where the coronavirus is circulating widely are having to undergo virus tests upon arrival at French airports and ports.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced last month that the tests would be required starting Aug 1 for the arriving passengers France is allowing in from the listed countries unless they present proof of a negative test done within 72 hours of their departure.

France is not permitting general travel to and from the 16 countries, which include the United States and Brazil.

The testing requirement therefore only applies to people entering under limited circumstances - “French citizens who live in these countries or citizens of these countries with an established residence in France,” Castex has said.

The French government has so far ruled out imposing another nationwide lockdown after the one that brought the country to a standstill for nearly two months between March and May.

Mossberg Silver Reserve II Over/Under Shotgun: What Happened

All in all, this would be a great first firearm for those looking to get into the sport and while silver often goes to second place this is by no means simply a “runner up” shotgun even if it took a second try and a bit of refinement to get the Silver Reserve II to the finish line!

While the Silver Reserve II won't easily be confused with a Holland & Holland or other high-end over/under shotgun out there it is still a quality firearm that delivers in the key areas.

The Silver Reserve II line has been expanded and includes both field and sporting models including the Field, Sport, Combo and Side-by-Side and these are available in four popular gauges including 12, 20, 28 gauges and .410 Bore; and with barrels ranging from 26 to 32 inches.

This over/under shotgun line was first introduced in 2011, and while Mossberg delivered a quality firearm at a reasonable price—something the company has been doing since it was founded in 1919—the Turkish-made Silver Reserve wasn't exactly what the market wanted and hunters didn't flock to it.

Both points are necessary to denote when discussing the Mossberg Silver Reserve II over/under shotgun—because simply put in its initial release it didn’t exactly take the hunting world by storm.

“The decision was taken after a staff member tested positive to COVID-19,” an Australian Club spokesman said in a statement.

The Australian Club, an exclusive members-only venue in Sydney’s CBD, will be closed until Tuesday after a staff member tested positive to COVID-19.
