Mercedes is allegedly cooking up a CLC four-door coupe, so we decided to share a render that could be related to some extent to the real deal. Mercedes is allegedly cooking up a CLC four-door coupe, so we decided to share a render that could be related to some extent to the real deal. Daimler considers there’s still room for expansion in the three-pointed star’s lineup which is why a rumor from last October suggested the C Class family will eventually gain a four-door coupe model. It will reportedly be out by the end of the decade and could be based on the long-wheelbase C Class sold in China. If the reports are valid, the model will act as a direct adversary for the Audi A5 Sportback and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. Taking into account it won’t be out in the next couple of years, chances are it will in fact be based on the facelifted C-Class. It’s not really that hard to imagine how the CLC will look like, since it’s basically going to be a baby CLS. It will lose some of the … [Read more...] about Rumored Mercedes CLC four-door coupe speculatively rendered
Dont let me down
It's October and I'm trying to survive a scary movie drought. I usually hit up spooky old theaters to catch my annual screening of Halloween 3 and whatever hip arthouse horror is making the circuit, but since I'm stuck at home in my very safe, comfortable apartment, the spooks just aren't coming as easy this year. So over the weekend hopelessly digging for the perfect cult classic I somehow missed, I gave up in frustration and said to hell with it, let's check out that hip new ghost game making waves. I watched Phasmophobia streams for the next four hours, as scared by them as any decent ghost movie. I'd initially written Phasmophobia off as just another flash in the pan, a cheap Twitch phenom that couldn't possibly be scary with so many influencers screaming over it, whatever it was. Turns out I was dismissing one of the best ghost games ever made, an excellent ode to early '00s ghost-hunting movies and reality shows in their heyday. I've played some Phasmophobia after … [Read more...] about I don’t know what’s scarier: Playing Phasmophobia or watching it

Image 1 of 3 Image 2 of 3 Image 3 of 3 It's probably the fact this game is just simply excellent at what it does: scaring the bejesus out of you.

Source: Alicia_Harper/Pixabay A recent study by Chey and colleagues, published in Gastroenterology , reviews the latest behavioral and diet therapies for irritable bowel syndrome , a chronic gastrointestinal condition affecting over 10% of people. Let me first explain what irritable bowel syndrome is and how it is diagnosed. What is irritable bowel syndrome? The diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) relies neither on X-ray nor blood tests. In fact, the diagnosis of IBS is based mainly on symptoms: Episodes of abdominal pain (e. g ., cramping) and bloating/distention associated with changes in bowel habits (i.e. frequency, stool appearance) or disordered bowel habits (diarrhea, constipation, or a mixture). It was once assumed IBS symptoms improve with defecation; however, that is no longer part of the definition of IBS because for some patients, passing a bowel movement does not improve IBS symptoms; sometimes it makes them worse. Irritable bowel syndrome … [Read more...] about Science-Based Behavioral Treatments for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
No matter what you do, even quietly reading this article, your body is metabolizing. That just means it’s doing its job, keeping the heart beating, the lungs pumping, and the gut gurgling. In the process, it uses up nutrients and churns out waste products, the effluvia of life. Like garbage on a city street, it must be taken out lest the streets get clogged. That job is done by the kidneys, which filter waste from the blood and then excrete it. With damaged kidneys, these toxic wastes build up and your organs start to suffer. Caged bacteria help kidneys do their job. Source: Wildpixel/iStock What’s the bacterial connection? We each have some three pounds of bacteria in our gut, protecting us from pathogens and helping us digest our food. A smooth-acting microbiota balances the needs of thousands of species of bacteria, fungi, and viruses jostling around in the warmth of the gut. Many researchers consider this batch of microbes to be like an organ in itself: it … [Read more...] about Can Caged Microbes Help Your Kidneys?
