NASA confirms thousands of massive, ancient volcanic eruptions on Mars

Scientists found evidence that a region of northern Mars called Arabia Terra experienced thousands of “super eruptions,” the biggest volcanic eruptions known, over a 500-million-year period. Some volcanoes can produce eruptions so powerful they release oceans of dust and toxic gases into the air, blocking out sunlight and changing a planet’s climate for decades.

High blood pressure and fatty liver don’t add up in death risk

In a new study from the University of Eastern Finland, researchers found the combined effect of hypertension and fatty liver disease on death risk does not seem to exceed their separate effects. The establishment of risk factors for heart disease has shaped clinical practice throughout the past century. Hypertension, or elevated blood pressure, is the most […] The post High blood pressure and fatty liver don’t add up in death risk appeared first on Knowridge Science Report. …read more Source:: Knowridge Science Report

Surface Laptop 4 long-term review: If it ain’t broke, fix it anyway

The Surface Laptop 4 isn’t the most exciting laptop I’ve ever reviewed. Testing it gave me a serious case of déjà vu; its design has barely changed since I first went hands-on with the original in 2017. The most obvious exterior change on my 13-inch review unit — other than being a different shade of blue — is that it comes with a USB-C port instead of a Mini DisplayPort. That’s it. And yet I still consider this laptop to be near the top of its class. A few quibbles aside, it’s one of the easiest to recommend laptops on… This story continues at The Next Web …read more Source::… Read More

Ikea’s $40 pad adds built-in wireless charging to almost any table

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Ikea got in relatively early on selling furniture embedded with wireless charging coils, but what if you don’t have one of its powered-up desks or shelving units? If you want seamless Wireless Qi charging without redecorating, then next month, there will be a solution. Meet the Sjömärke, a $40 wireless charging pad made to work with furniture you already own. This device isn’t like most Qi charging pads, where you’d put your phone or earbuds directly on the mat. Instead, the seven-inch by three-inch aluminum and plastic charger works through plastic or wood, so you can use its double-sided tape (or screws, not… Read More

New trailers: Succession, You, Nightmare Alley, Hawkeye, and more

Kendall Roy, smiling because he is happy Succession is returning soon (probably) | HBO OK so the latest Ted Lasso spends almost the entire episode on Coach Beard in its most unusual, dream-like episode ever. I didn’t hate it (and I know it’s one of the two episodes added to the mix after Apple said it wanted 12 episodes instead of the 10 the writers had already sketched out. The Christmas episode was the other), but I wish we had actually gotten to know Beard a little better. “I listen more than I talk” seems like a line that could be his mantra. The Morning Show is back and honestly… Read More
