I Went to the London ‘FriendsFest’ and All I Got Was a Free Bar of Mockolate
Stepping under a dripping white banner reading “Oh. My. God.” and “My sandwich?!,” while the Rembrandts sang that they’d be there for me “when the rain starts to pour” was not the most inspiring start to a drizzly FriendsFest – Comedy Central’s annual tribute to the iconic nineties sitcom. Friends may have ended 13 years ago (three years longer than it was on television in the first place), but that did not seem the case when looking around damp, dark Clissold Park in Stoke Newington, London, on Thursday evening. Around 100 people – many of whom would have been yo...

Apple ’s New $1,000 iPhone X Is Luxuriously Out of Touch
You could be forgiven for seeing the iPhone as a functional and practical acquisition. The phone, after all, has revolutionized how we take pictures, order food, sign up for an exercise class, read the news, listen to music, communicate across thousands of miles through FaceTime and wait, as if reading tea leaves, as we watch the ellipses between exchanges with a new romantic partner. With each release of a new version, Apple makes its previous technology antiquated in mere seconds, thus shaming many of us to upgrade. For millions of us, the many capabilities of the iPhone make dropping several hundred dollars to acquire o...

Could a Mediterranean diet be as good as drugs for acid reflux?
Conclusion The results of this relatively small cohort study seem to show that a plant-based Mediterranean diet with alkaline water is equally good as PPI medication at treating acid reflux symptoms when people also follow standard advice to cut out certain things from their diet. This might suggest that the first port of call for people with gastro-oesophageal reflux could be to try a Mediterranean diet before going on PPI medication, to avoid potential side effects. There are, however, some limitations to this research: Cohort studies can only show links and cannot prove definite cause and effect, and retrospective coh...
