Cellulite is the medical term for lumpy, dimpled flesh that appears primarily on the thighs, buttocks,

Cellulite is the medical term for lumpy, dimpled flesh that appears primarily on the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach. Around 80 percent of women over 20-years-old will get cellulite. It happens when fat pushes through the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing a rippled appearance. Women are more prone to cellulite because of the structure of their connective tissue; men’s connective tissue forms a crisscross pattern whereas women’s appears as vertical columns and, along with having thinner skin, these columns allow more space for fat to push through to the skin’s surface. Unhealthy eating, smoking and drinking can promote cellulite, but it can also be down to factors beyond our control such as genetics or hormonal imbalances. Although there isn’t a permanent solution to banishing the orange peel effect, massagers can do wonders to improve it and there are many kinds, from electric to manual, depending on your preference and spending allowance. Cosmetic physician Sarah Tonks, who runs The Lovely Clinic in Knightsbridge, said: “Massagers will speed up the circulation which will improve the appearance of the skin. They are fine to use but watch your underwear; if the unde...

Ah, the shimmer of aluminum metalized polyethylene terephthalate.CreditCreditChris Maggio for The New York Times Each December, surrounded by wonderlands of white paper snowflakes, bright red winterberries, and forests of green conifers reclaiming their ancestral territory from inside the nation’s living rooms and hotel lobbies, children and adults delight to see the true harbinger of the holidays: aluminum metalized polyethylene terephthalate. Aluminum metalized polyethylene terephthalate settles over store windows like dazzling frost. It flashes like hot, molten gold across the nail plates of young women. It sparkles like pure precision-cut starlight on an ornament of a North American brown bear driving a car towing a camper van. Indeed, in Clement Clarke Moore’s seminal Christmas Eve poem, the eyes of Saint Nicholas himself are said to twinkle like aluminum metalized polyethylene terephthalate (I’m paraphrasing). In homes and malls and schools and synagogues and banks and hospitals and fire stations and hardware stores and breweries and car dealerships, and every kind of office — and outside those places, too — it shines. It glitters. It is glitter. What is glitter? The simp...

Three-dimensional all-dielectric metamaterial solid immersion lens for subwavelength imaging at visible frequencies

Although all-dielectric metamaterials offer a low-loss alternative to current metal-based metamaterials to manipulate light at the nanoscale and may have important applications, very few have been reported to date owing to the current nanofabrication technologies. We develop a new “nano–solid-fluid assembly” method using 15-nm TiO2 nanoparticles as building blocks to fabricate the first three-dimensional (3D) all-dielectric metamaterial at visible frequencies. Because of its optical transparency, high refractive index, and deep-subwavelength structures, this 3D all-dielectric metamaterial-based solid immersion lens (mSIL) can produce a sharp image with a super-resolution of at least 45 nm under a white-light optical microscope, significantly exceeding the classical diffraction limit and previous near-field imaging techniques. Theoretical analysis reveals that electric field enhancement can be formed between contacting TiO2 nanoparticles, which causes effective confinement and propagation of visible light at the deep-subwavelength scale. This endows the mSIL with unusual abilities to illuminate object surfaces with large-area nanoscale near-field evanescent spots and to collect a...

300骑行人集结“网红”自行车路,帮听障人士开餐厅_专用

由内容质量、互动评论、分享传播等多维度分值决定,勋章级别越高( ),代表其在平台内的综合表现越好。 新京报快讯(记者 姜慧梓)6月2日,北京首条自行车专用路迎来300位公益骑行人,通过骑行打卡为“静默餐厅”募款,并呼吁绿色出行,参与回天地区建设。 上午10点,发令枪响,300辆自行车驶上红绿相间的自行车道。据介绍,自行车专用路全长6.5公里,道路限速15公里/每小时,许多骑行者不到半小时就到达了终点。虽然自行车专用路已经开通两天,但很多参加活动的人还是第一次体验专用路。“感觉确实方便很多”,骑行人李先生介绍,他住在回龙观,在西二旗中关村软件园工作,自行车专用路的路线设计完全满足了他的通勤需求,“以前坐地铁太挤,开车又容易堵,以后我就准备骑车上下班了。” 李先生是从“回天有我”线上平台了解到这场活动的。他介绍,每一位骑行人只要完成骑行就会有企业为“静默餐厅”项目配捐,整个活动将募集款项50万元。据了解,“静默餐厅”是专为听障人士提供就业岗位,并由听障人士参与运营的公益项目。 原谅小串是静默餐厅项目的参与企业,目前已经在北京开了3家店,累计为47位听障人士提供就业岗位。原谅小串的创始人鲁露介绍,她在回天地区的第一家店将于今年7月底开业,9月底前将在北京开满10家店,按照每店招用15名听障人士的标准解决他们的就业问题。同时,项目还将扶持培养100名静默餐厅合伙人,待听障人士工作满一年后,创始人会拿出20%的股份,帮助听障人士成为合伙人...

Now that most incandescent lightbulbs are pretty much a thing of the past, consumers now must

Now that most incandescent lightbulbs are pretty much a thing of the past, consumers now must choose between LED (light-emitting diode), CFL (compact fluorescent), and halogen bulbs to light their homes. But which is the best option? It all depends on your needs. We’ll take you through the various kinds of lighting, the benefits that each offers, and help you find the best light bulb for you. Traditional incandescent bulbs measured their brightness in watts; if you wanted a brighter bulb, you bought one with a higher wattage. However, with the advent of LEDs and other types of lighting, that yardstick has become meaningless, and as a result, a bulb’s brightness is now listed as lumens, which is a more accurate measurement of how bright it is, rather than how much energy it consumes. Below is a conversion table which shows how much energy, in watts, an incandescent bulb and an LED typically require to produce the same amount of light. Other replacement lightbulb choices consume more power than LED bulbs and have shorter rated-lifespans, but cost much less upfront. A 60-watt–equivalent CFL bulb from Philips, for example, consumes 13 watts and has a rated lifetime of 12,000 h...
