From best sellers like Kingston’s “Clear your Clutter with Feng Shui” to the Marie Kondo “Bringing You Joy” method, there seem to be almost as many ways to ditch your clutter as there are plans to lose weight. While studies show that one in four Americans would like to, it’s not always the easiest thing to do. There are scientific studies that back the benefits of being organized, which makes it worth your while. First, we’ll take a look at the causes and benefits, then show you how to implement them with easy hacks for organizing your home, work-life, family, meals, and social life. Why do we accumulate clutter? It can (literally) hurts to throw things away: It turns out that some people’s brains are built to create clutter and it takes actual physical exertion to reduce it. A Yale School of Medicine study of hoarders found that the action of throwing something away caused pain sensors in the brain to fire. It was literally hurting them to declutter. Also, clutter can be tied to identity and nostalgia. You are thinking about storage all wrong: According to this article, storage is not a place to put all your junk. Instead, it should be about the conven...

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were used to investigate the structure and morphology of the nanoparticles and films. Surface wettability and optical properties of the thin films were studied by means of water contact angle analyzer and UV-vis spectrophotometer...

In this paper, we propose an automated pulmonary nodule detection algorithm, denoted by NODULe, which jointly uses a conventional method for nodule detection and a deep learning model for genuine nodule identification. Specifically, we first use multi-scale Laplacian of Gaussian (LoG) filters and prior shape and size constraints to detect nodul...

CONCLUSION: We identified a changing pattern of human visceral leishmaniasis occurrence in Ara çatuba: the first period (1999-2009) showed a cyclic pattern, clusters, and presence of spatial dependence in the case point distribution; the second period (2010-2015) showed the lowest rates of all historical series, stable incidence, and cases with a random distribution pattern.

Pleurotus ostreatus β-glucan with good processing functionality can be conjugated with oat protein isolate via Maillard reaction, leading to an improved utilization of protein in food industry. Therefore, we produced conjugate with oat protein isolate and Pleurotus ostreatus β-glucan via Maillard reaction under controlled dry-heating conditions. The formation of conjugates wi...

Crystal violet staining assay showed that SA clearly reduced the biomass of the biofilm at its sub-MICs. Light microscopic images and scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations suggested that SA inhibited the biofilm adhesion on glass slides and induced apparent collapse of biofilm architectu...

I have good days and bad days. Little changes, like a poor night's sleep, can cause me problems for a few days. I realize that. Forgetting medication can really mess me up. Last winter I had a horrible cold and forgot to take my Lyrica for a few days. Then I started feeling even worse - the Lyrica hangover.... But then I figured it out and went back on it and felt better instantly.I have been feeling bad off and on all week but mostly with in reason. Until yesterday. I woke up achy and sore. I didn't sleep well because I couldn't get comfortable. I had a throbbing headache. My hands were really sore on Friday - I couldn't ...

Whee! Time for a Tube Up Your Tuchus!image:wikimedia commonsBy Crabby McSlackerSo, some perspective here: for people with serious illnesses who've been through hardcore, painful, debilitating, invasive medical procedures? A colonoscopy is probably child's play. (Although let's be clear, that's just an expression. If your child actually plays this way? We need to talk).But for most people, there's at least a little trepidation. And for many, if statistics are to be believed, that fear is significant enough to skip the procedure entirely! Well sure, it could save your life and all, but really? Do you have to?There are actual...
