Doctor Michael Mosley reveals three health benefits, plus how to get started  A widespread misconception that originated as a marketing ploy from cereal brands, is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

    Millennials and the housing market: Why the largest generation in American history will keep home prices high

    Despite mortgage rates that have more than doubled and sky-high prices, the housing market just keeps chugging along, avoiding the crash that some economists feared. You can partly thank millennials, the generation that’s usually blamed for the country’s financial ills. Though millennials have taken the brunt of the blow as housing affordability deteriorates, they are also the largest generation in U.S. history. And while much has been made of their inability to afford housing, they will continue to lead the country’s “household formation,” which equates to housing demand, for the foreseeable future, according to a recently published analysis from Ned Davis Research’s Chief Economist Alejandra Grindal and Research Analyst London…

    Vectorscope KiCad Redrawing Project | Hackaday

    When I saw this year’s Supercon Vectorscope badge, I decided that I had to build one for myself. Since I couldn’t attend in-person, I immediately got the PCBs and parts on order. Noting that the GitHub repository only had the KiCad PCB file and not the associated schematics and project file, I assumed this was because everyone was in a rush during the days leading up to Supercon weekend. I later learned, however, that there really wasn’t a KiCad project — the original design was done in Circuit Maker and the PCB was converted into KiCad. I thought, “how hard can this be?” and decided to try my hand at…

    Alleged Co-Inventor Not Bringing Home the Bacon This Time

    Many of us have said, “Bacon makes everything better.” Can you imagine the accolades someone would receive if they contributed to an invention that improves bacon? Well, it turns out that not all contributions count when it comes to being an inventor of a patent for a better method of precooking bacon. The dispute arose between HIP, Inc. (“HIP”) and Hormel Foods Corporation (“Hormel”) related to work on a joint project. In 2021, HIP sued Hormel, challenging Hormel’s ownership and the inventorship of U.S. Patent No. 9,980,498 (the “’498 Patent”). HIP, formerly Unitherm Food Systems, Inc. (“Unitherm”), argued that it had rights to the patent because its president was an…

    Iceland warns likelihood of volcanic eruption is significant after hundreds of earthquakes

    Officials in Iceland are preparing for a possible volcanic eruption in the wake of hundreds of earthquakes that forced a coastal town along the island nation’s southern peninsula to evacuate and prompted a state of emergency. There is a “significant likelihood” that an eruption will happen in the coming days, the Icelandic Meteorological Office warns. A spike in seismic activity led Icelandic authorities to evacuate the southwestern fishing town of Grindavík, which is about an hour’s drive from Reykjavík, the capital city, on Friday night. The town with a population of just over 3,600 people is known internationally for tourist draws like the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa, and is about 15…
