When Wendy Bedolla got into her Tesla Model 3 Thursday morning there was a message waiting for her.
“Stay Fully Charged,” the message on the car’s big computer screen said. “A utility company in your area announced they may turn off power in some areas of Northern California beginning October 9 as part of public safety power shutoffs, which may affect power to charging options.”
October’s full moon, called the Hunter’s Moon, will rise tonight (Oct. 13), reaching its peak fullness at 5:08 p.m. ET.
The Hunter’s Moon, which is the full moon following the Harvest Moon and the closest full moon to the fall equinox, is reportedly the best time for hunting deer and other animals, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. In northern locations, leaves have fallen, deer have fattened and harvesters have cleared the fields, making it easier to see the animals under the light of the big bulb in the sky, according to NASA.
But people of different cultures and regions gave their own names to full moons. The Algonquin tribes, for example, called October’s full moon the Travel Moon, the Dying Grass Moon and the Sanguine or Blood Moon; the latter three are thought to be named after the changing colors of the leaves and dying plants, according to NASA.
A friend of mine once told me, “Almost everything in my life that I’ve had to let go of has scratch marks on it.” His point was that he found it very difficult to let go of things he couldn’t control. I’m sure many of you can relate to that.
Most of us don’t want to let go of things we like. So we hang on until they’re forcibly taken away, and even then, we still hold on mentally and emotionally. What we may not realize is that holding on can wreak havoc in our lives.
Holding on to things we can’t control can cause us a great deal of stress and unhappiness. It also keeps us stuck in the past, and keeps us from growing and living our lives freely. If we want to be happy and free, then we need to learn to let go.
Hulu has added offline video downloads to its on-demand video service, but there’s a catch: the feature is only available with Hulu’s $12-per-month ad-free service, not the more popular $6-per-month service with ads. If you’re eligible, downloads are available today on iOS and are coming soon to Android.
Teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg grabbed headlines in the U.S. last month when she traveled to the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in a sailboat and then accused adults of having stolen her generation’s hopes and dreams with their inaction on climate change. But in her home country, Thunberg and her movement already seem to be having an effect on the habits of adults; domestic air travel is falling in Sweden as she’s become the face of a push to reduce air travel.
Even if you’re not ready to cut back on flying, there are other ways you can have a personal and positive impact on the environment. One of the most obvious is with your money—how you bank it, invest it, spend it and share it. Here are eight ways to make your money greener (or promote other causes you deem worthy).
It’s natural to want some of those groovy whiskey glasses that Harrison Ford’s character Rick Deckard keeps pushing on his replicant girlfriend Rachel in Blade Runner. Though they’re not cheap, and there are about a million knockoffs out there, we can’t thing of anything better to put LG’s new “ice sphere” ice cubes in — alongside a dash of something potent.
LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators have been out for a little while and now the company has pushed through an upgrade that enables them to make something called “Craft Ice.” Most of us are still cracking ice cube trays filled with traditional square cubes (unless you’re in the U.K. or the EU, where they sell a bizarre alternative that uses plastic bags with weird pockets that would eventually make something resembling an ice cube.)
IoT will eventually have an impact on health care.
The concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) entails the use of electronic devices that help to capture or monitor data and are linked to a public or private network, empowering them to mechanically initiate certain events. In this article, we will study the context of IoT in the health care industry and come across the myriad of benefits it has bestowed upon it.
Internet of Things and the health care industry
Before the arrival of IoT, the patient’s interactions with doctors were restricted to physical visits and tele and text communications. There was absolutely no way in which the doctors could continuously monitor a patient’s health and suggest treatments accordingly.
