Firefox Home Brings Bookmarks, Open Tabs & History to iPhone

first_imgMozilla, the company behind the world’s second most-popular browser, writes this morning that it is “happy to announce that the wait is over.” Firefox, its open-source entry into the browser market, has made its way onto the iPhone and iPod Touch. Before you get too excited, it’s not as a browser, but as a companion to Firefox on your desktop, giving you mobile access to all of the details normally saved at home. Firefox Home works with the free Firefox add-on Firefox Sync, and brings all the details from your desktop to your iPhone or iPod Touch. It has all of your bookmarks, your browsing history and even the tabs that are currently open on your desktop browser. The app also has an “Awesome Bar”, just as in Firefox, which tries to predict what you are looking for while you type. If you don’t have Firefox Sync already installed, the first thing that Firefox Home does is to send you a quick email with the four simple steps to get going. Mozilla’s mobile version of Firefox, called Fennec, came to Android last April but there’s still no word on its landing on Apple’s mobile devices. Let’s be honest, though. Everyone wishes for their favorite browser, whether Firefox or Chrome or Opera, to make it on to their mobile platform, but does it every really replicate the desktop experience and fulfill their desires? We like Firefox on the desktop for its extensibility, but this isn’t the sort of functionality we’re likely to see, were we ever to get Firefox on the iPhone. And as we saw with Opera for the iPhone, the simple fact that it couldn’t be made to act as the default browser put it on a second tier status from the get go.So, for now, we say stop lamenting the fact that this isn’t a fully functional Firefox browser and enjoy the ability to quickly access everything you’ve done at home while you’re on the go.

Now it is a target because Cristiano is the best player in the world and we need him to make the last step.“It’s the personality of Cristiano. He has fantastic skills in the field but out of the field, his attitude – how he works, how he prepares for the match, how he lives every day of his life – can help us. The team has changed.“We started in the first three months nearly in perfection but we know the most important period is from spring.“I think that we are one of the four or five teams who are favourites – Barcelona, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich. But also PSG and Atletico can reach the victory and we are so far away from the key matches still.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

PAXMAN to showcase latest scalp cooling system at Arab Heath 2019

first_imgThe improved simplicity of the new generation of PAXMAN Scalp Cooling employs an interactive user interface and touchscreen ensuring ease of use for clinical staff.  Maintaining coolant levels is also simplified by a visual warning system and an easy-to-use self-drain coolant refill bag.The new control pump manages the speed and coolant flow, improving the consistency of treatment. Manufacturing technique changes have also been introduced – the front cover of the scalp cooling machine is now injection molded rather than RIM molded – to improve the overall aesthetics of the system.Following the successful launch in the US, this updated model is being rolled out across the Middle East, UK and rest of world markets. This is the first time it will be showcased at Arab Health and the company is keen to find new partners from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.The PAXMAN Cooling System (also known as the ‘cold cap’) alleviates the damage caused to the hair follicle by chemotherapy. It works by reducing the temperature of the scalp by a few degrees immediately before, during and after the administration of chemotherapy.Related StoriesTSRI study reveals new approach to intervene in deadly diseasePaxman to showcase FDA approved scalp cooler for chemotherapy induced alopecia at ASCOScalp cooling provides safe, effective treatment in prevention of chemotherapy-induced alopeciaMade from lightweight silicone, the scalp cooling cap is soft and flexible – providing a snug, yet comfortable fit during treatment, molding to all head shapes and sizes. Liquid coolant passes through the cap, extracting heat from the young person’s scalp, ensuring it remains at an even, constant temperature to minimize hair loss.Chemotherapy works by targeting all rapidly dividing cells in the body. Hair is the second fastest dividing cell, and this is the reason why many chemotherapy drugs cause alopecia. The hair follicles in the growth phase are attacked, resulting in hair loss approximately two weeks after the commencement of chemotherapy treatment. Chemotherapy-induced hair loss is consistently ranked in the top five most distressing cancer chemotherapy side effects and we are working hard to ensure that cancer patients have a choice against hair loss. We are delighted to be able to offer scalp cooling to Middle Eastern patients and are keen to find new partners from across the region.”Richard Paxman, CEO at PAXMAN​​ The Arab Health Exhibition & Congress is taking place from 28th – 31st January 2019 at the Dubai Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Wearing tight pants and pubichair removal linked to increased risk of vulvodynia

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)May 9 2019Risk of chronic vulva discomfort and pain nearly doubled by removing hair from mons pubis, or wearing tight-fitting jeans or pants four or more times a week.Vulvodynia is chronic, unexplained, and debilitating vulva pain, affecting an estimated 16 percent of women over their lifetimes. A new Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) study finds that the risk of vulvodynia is nearly doubled by wearing tight-fitting jeans or pants four or more times a week, or removing hair from the mons pubis. Published in the Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease, it is the first study to show a link between clothing and grooming and the condition.Related StoriesNovel miniature probe measures tissue damage in the lungVitamin D supplementation may not reduce the risk of heart diseaseMalaria drug may help those with hereditary hearing loss finds study”With an increase in the prevalence of pubic hair removal directly from the vulvar region, particularly in adolescent girls, the microabrasions to this sensitive area may predispose young women to immune-inflammatory complications,” says study senior author Dr. Bernard Harlow, professor of epidemiology at BUSPH. “Likewise, tight-fitting jeans or pants can create an environment that fosters genital tract infections, which have been shown to be associated with vulvar pain onset.”The researchers used data from self-reported histories of personal hygiene behaviors a year before first reported onset of vulvar pain among 213 women with clinically confirmed cases of vulvodynia, and a similar time period among 221 women with no history of vulvar discomfort.They found that women who wore tight-fitting jeans or pants four or more times per week had twice the odds of vulvodynia compared to women who never or rarely did. Most of the women in both groups reported removing pubic hair, but those who removed hair from the mons pubis (the soft mound of skin above the genitals) were 74 percent more likely to experience vulvodynia than women who only removed hair from the bikini area. Compared with women who reported removing only bikini-area hair less than monthly, those who removed hair from the mons pubis weekly or more were nearly twice as likely to experience vulvodynia.
