Nail lamp dryer for gel nail polish curing manicure pedicure Radiation from nail dryers may damage DNA and cause cancer-causing mutations in human cells, a new study has found — and that might have you wondering whether your regular gel mani-pedi is worth the risk. Some dermatologists say the findings, in a study published January 17 in the journal Nature Communications, aren’t new when it comes to concerns about ultraviolet, or UV, light from any source. In fact, the results reaffirm the reason why some dermatologists have changed the way they get their gel manicures or have stopped getting them altogether. “The findings…

A federal judge in California on Wednesday granted Children’s Health Defense (CHD)-California Chapter’s request for a preliminary injunction to block a California law that would have allowed the state’s medical boards to punish doctors for spreading “COVID-19 misinformation.” In his 30-page opinion, Senior U.S. District Judge William Shubb determined the defendants in the case — California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Rob Bonta and California Medical and Osteopathic Boards — provided “no evidence that ‘scientific consensus’ has any established technical meaning,” and that the law provides “no clarity” on the meaning of the word “misinformation.” Judge Shubb also found the “plaintiffs have established a…

The city of Seattle is suing Kia and Hyundai, arguing the company did not take adequate anti-theft measures to prevent its cars from being stolen. “Kia and Hyundai chose to cut corners and cut costs at the expense of their customers and the public,” Seattle City Attorney Ann Davison said in a statement. “As a result, our police force has had to tackle a huge rise in vehicle theft and related problems with already stretched resources. Now Seattle taxpayers must shoulder the burden of the increase in theft. Kia and Hyundai need to take responsibility for the public safety hazard…

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced a legislative proposal Thursday that he says would help crack down on crime in the state strengthening punishment for child rapists, among other things. Speaking from Miami, DeSantis announced that the comprehensive proposal is to “maintain and further improve Florida’s 50-year record low crime rate.” The legislation would limit those eligible for release prior to first appearance and would reform Florida’s death penalty statute to ensure that those “convicted of the most heinous crimes are punished accordingly,” said a press release from his office. Current law requires a unanimous jury recommendation to impose a death sentence.…

Kanye West just can’t quit Balenciaga — even though the brand ditched him over his antisemitism and all the weird pedo stuff, he took his new wife for a shopping spree. Ye and Bianca Censori hit up the upscale Bev Hills clothing store Wednesday night on Rodeo Drive, loading up with several bags filled with merch.

Forged in magma and capable of producing the sharpest blades on Earth, obsidian is without a doubt one of the most badass materials ever imagined (there’s a reason George RR Martin made it the weapon of choice to kill White Walkers). The jet-black volcanic glass is also extremely delicate and dangerous to work with, and was not mastered by humans until the latter part of the Stone Age… or so we thought. Reporting on the latest findings from the Melka Kunture archaeological site in Ethiopia, a team of researchers has described the discovery of an obsidian handaxe workshop within a layer of sediment dated…

Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley reintroduced a bill to ban members of Congress and their spouses from owning and trading stocks, and used the name of his legislation to troll former Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Preventing Elected Leaders from Owning Securities and Investments (PELOSI) Act would give members and their spouses six months after first assuming office to divest any holdings or put them in a blind trust – mutual funds, exchange-traded funds and Treasury bonds would still be allowed. Any members found in violation of the bill would have to ‘return their profits to American taxpayers.’ Two years after the bill was signed the Government Accountability Office…

Blood clots typically form in the veins of the legs, arms, groin. It is when they break off and travel to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, that they pose a risk. Typically risk factors for blood clotting include surgery, cancer, and pregnancy. The findings from one small study, however, imply that a nutrient found in eggs and meat may also increase the risk of blood clotting. The study conducted by Cleveland Clinic, suggested that choline could make the blood more prone to clotting. Choline is sometimes sold in over-the-counter dietary supplements. It is deemed an essential…

Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna provided more information about the firearm found after the mass shooting in the Los Angeles area over the weekend that left ten people dead, but the way he described it is making eyes roll. The suspect, now dead, was identified as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran. Luna said law enforcement recovered a “magazine fed semi automatic assault pistol” during their investigation into the massacre. Tran killed himself as police closed in on him. In other words, police found a pistol. A regular handgun, since the vast majority of handguns are semi-automatic that use magazines. Why…

Few of us give much thought to Earth’s swirling, spinning contents until some sudden movement, an earthquake or a volcanic eruption, jolts us to our senses. Geoscientists, though, are a little more clued into the dynamics of Earth’s guts, and have just discovered that Earth’s solid inner iron core – which usually spins within a near-frictionless molten outer envelope – appears to have slowed to a grinding halt. Before anybody panics and searches for a copy of a terrible 20-year-old science fiction movie predicting such an event in hopes of inspiring a solution, it’s not the first time record of such an…
