    A LOTTERY winner who reportedly picked up more than $1million in seven wins over two years has revealed his advice.

    Before the COVID-19 lockdown measures, my coffee ritual was about as quick and dirty as you could get. I was always running out the door to class, to an appointment, or to meet friends, and I wanted coffee as quickly as possible. My trusty single-use coffee pods allowed me to have an espresso in under one minute at the press of a button. But a few months into the pandemic, my coffee just wasn’t tasting the same. I drank so much of it over the self-isolation period that I’d become immune to the once-incredible flavor. It now seemed lifeless and dull. I decided to seek out a more artisanal and intentional coffee ritual and make it a part of my daily morning routine. I’ve used a French Press in the past, but I hated washing the filter and dealing with messy grinds. After searching for more handcrafted coffee experiences, I landed on the Hario v60 coffee dripper. Despite its highbrow reputation, it is deceptively simple to brew coffee using a pour over setup. I can make a perfect cup in...

    Removing garlic from its peel isn't as easy as it seems. Rachel Askinasi/Insider Insider TikToker Kushi Ali (@k_ali98) shared a video showing how she removes garlic cloves from their peels.  The hack involves microwaving the garlic for 30 seconds. I tried it and found that it does remove the peel, but it also leaves hot, mushy cloves of garlic behind. While this method works just fine, I'd recommend rolling the cloves with your hand on your countertop so you don't compromise their texture. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Home cooks know that peeling garlic is a notoriously tedious task. Typically, I smash a clove with my knife and peel away the paper-like shell or roll it on a cutting board with the heel of my hand, which I've found works even better (though it kind of hurts). But when I saw a hack that promised peel-free garlic with just the use of a microwave, I had to give it a try.  @k_ali98 easy way to peel garlic - heat for 30 secs in microwave...

    By Elizabeth Cook and Molly McCrea HARVARD (CBS SF) — When it comes to curbing COVID-19, one way to return to a more normal way of life is to rapidly detect where the virus is spreading. A new test being developed by scientists at Harvard Medical School may just do the trick. For Harvard researchers, when it comes to testing for the coronavirus, you want to test individuals when they are infectious. “We care about infectiousness and infectiousness only seems to happen when a person has a very high viral load,” said Dr. Constance Cepko. Cepko works in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School. There are numerous problems with what is known as the “gold standard” test for COVID-19: it’s expensive, takes time to run, and often the chemicals needed for it are in short supply. An additional issue is that the test is highly sensitive. The PCR-based test can detect viral particles for quite some time after the individual is no longer infectious. Cepko’s team at has developed a new test using an old method. She says...
