    DURING the heatwave, you may be trying numerous methods to cool down and escape the heat. However, experts have claimed that you should actually AVOID taking a cold shower, as it may leave you feeling hotter. 1Taking a cold shower will actually leave you feeling hotter, instead of coolerCredit: Getty The reason is down to how our body maintains its internal core temperature. While a cold shower may seem like a good choice as a tactic to “cool off”, the cold water actually causes a decreased blood flow to the skin. This is because the cold causes the vessels that supply blood to the skin to constrict. As a result, our core gets warmer due to the reduced heat loss through the skin.

    HAVING a heatwave is great but trying to get to sleep in it will sometimes leave you pulling your hair out.  It may also make you want to ditch the pyjamas completely.  1Experts have said to avoid sleeping naked in the heatCredit: Getty However, experts are actually saying that naked may actually make things worse. Dr Sophie Bostock, sleep expert at thesleepscientist.com, told Women's Health Magazine: "I've seen a lot of advice about sleeping naked. "But this isn't super helpful as what you can actually find is if sweat collects on the body, and isn't whipped away by a moisture-wicking surface - like you get from clothing - then it doesn't help you cool.

    A SLEEP expert has revealed how your period may be impacting your sleep. The female body goes through a number of changes over a menstrual cycle, including a rollercoaster of hormones. 1Your period can leave you tossing and turning in bed, experts sayCredit: Alamy And this is just one of the reasons why you find it harder to get good quality sleep at certain times of the month.  “The two key hormones during the menstrual cycle are oestrogen and progesterone, which come from the growing egg cell in the ovary,” said Dr Gareth Nye, a lecturer at Chester Medical School who specialises in maternal and foetal health.  Oestrogen and progesterone go up and down in a cyclical fashion every month. They rise during the first half of the cycle to help prepare the uterus for a fertilised egg, and drop in the second half to cause the uterus lining to break down (i.e. your period).

It doesn’t involve any effort and can be done while you’re watching TV in the evening. James said to fill a hot water bottle with lukewarm water, then rest your bare feet on it while you chill out.  He told The Sun: “What that does is that it will raise your core temperature slightly.

    A bitter cold spell is sweeping across much of the U.S., leaving many with serious concerns for their health and safety. Frostbite, in particular, is plaguing those who have to brave the outdoors in freezing weather. Health officials frequently warn those who have to travel in subzero temperatures, especially for any significant period of time, to bundle up. Your fingers, toes, nose and ears are especially vulnerable to frostbite in this weather, so be sure to wear thick socks, a hat, scarf and gloves. FLU SYMPTOMS AND PREVENTION: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW "Frostbite occurs when skin and underlying tissues freeze. The most common cause of frostbite is exposure to cold-weather conditions," the Mayo Clinic explains. "But it can also be caused by direct contact with ice, frozen metal or very cold liquids" Here are some commonly asked questions about frostbite, and what you can do to prevent it. At what temperature can you get frostbite? You can develop frostbite if the temperature falls below 32℉, according to LiveScience. But it's wind chill that can really speed things up. "It takes a...
    COOKING chicken can be such a hit-or-miss situation – sometimes it comes out great and other times, it comes out rubbery and dry. Well, a professional chef has revealed his secret to making sure it's always super juicy and it has everything to do with the temperature. 3A professional cook revealed how he makes super juicy chickenCredit: @stoveandgarden/Instagram 3He makes it like he was cooking a steakCredit: @stoveandgarden/Instagram The cook behind the social media account Stove Garden revealed his secrets in a viral video. "Get your chicken to room temperature and hit it with a bunch of salt and pepper, then flip and repeat," he began. After making sure his chicken was seasoned, he pulled out a cast iron and added avocado oil before dropping the chicken in. "Brown both sides and lower heat. Then add a few tablespoons of butter, a few cloves of garlic, and one sprig of rosemary," he explained. To finish, you'll want to baste it until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Following his video, many people actually commented that it...
    WITH heating bills set to soar this winter, you'll want to know that there's a way to slash your bills by setting the thermostat at a specific temperature. Households should brace themselves for heating costs to rocket by up to $513 this winter season, according to government forecasts. 1There's a way to slash your bills by setting the thermostat at a specific temperature It comes as the price of natural gas has soared to levels not seen before. But fortunately, there are ways to cut costs - and the US Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat at 68°F for most of the day during the winter season to save cash. It also recommends simply turning back your thermostat 7°-10°F for eight hours a day from its normal setting to save as much as 10% a year. The department noted that the percentage of savings from setback is greater for homes in milder climates than for those in more severe climates. Depending on your schedule and how warm you prefer your home to be, you can naturally choose between keeping your home...
    BOILING an egg is considered one of the easiest culinary tasks - and one we're taught from an early age. But according to a new video on TikTok, people have been incorrectly boiling eggs for years - and it's all to do with the temperature of the water. 3The 'correct' way of boiling eggs involves starting the cooking process with cold water, rather than boilingCredit: TikTok/@lifetipsing "It took 30 years to find out that there are skills in boiling eggs," the account LifeTipSing captioned a video on the social media site. While a lot of people use boiling water in which to put their eggs, this makes the surface of the egg green. "This is iron sulphide which may cause enteritis," they explained in the video. Instead, use cold water with a spoonful of salt added in, pop in the eggs and cook for eight minutes. "Wait five minutes after turning off the heat, take the eggs out and put it in cold water," they added. In cooking the eggs the correct way,...
    The average Brit will do approximately 13,000 loads of laundry in their lifetime, fold and iron 8,845 shirts and lose 756 socks – but still mess up when it comes to mixing colours, a survey has discovered. A poll of 2,000 adults found the average washing machine will go through four loads of laundry each week.  4Simple washing hacks can make the world of differenceCredit: Getty But 95 items of clothing will be ruined over the average adult lifetime by washing whites with coloured items or having the machine on a wash setting which was too hot. It also emerged that despite the huge amount of washing people do, nearly half (42 per cent) don’t consider the environmental impact of their laundry. Of the 208 loads of washing the typical adult does a year, a quarter won’t be full loads while half will be washed at a temperature of more than 30 degrees.

    FOR SOME time, those with long hair stopped using hair tools that could potentially damage their hair with extreme heat temperatures. However, air drying has proven to also be super damaging for your locks. 3A hair care expert debunked the myth that air-drying your hair is betterCredit: TikTok / @wondercurl 3She claimed that using heat is betterCredit: TikTok / @wondercurl The owner of haircare brand WonderCurl took to social media to debunk the myth that air-drying your hair is better than using heat on it. Scarlett Rocourt claimed that people's hair tends to be dryer and brittle when they air-dry it. This rule goes for all hair types. She added that even if you don't add heat to it, it could be damaging to your locks. And that the only way your hair can get heat damage is if you use extreme temperatures on it. This may come as a shock to many but Rocourt is not wrong. According to Dr. Tim Moore, the Chief Technology Officer at GHD, air drying can be the worst thing you do to...
    Paul Hawthorne/Getty Images Friends and family gather every year to give thanks and eat a holiday feast. Turkey is a traditional staple of the Thanksgiving dinner table. The food has been tied to salmonella outbreaks in the past making proper cooking essential. New and experienced cooks may have some questions when preparing the poultry dish. How long should you cook it? What temperature should it be? Here is what you need to know for cooking a turkey:Turkey Cooking Temperatures Play VideoVideo related to turkey cooking times & temperature: how do you know if it’s done?2021-11-25T06:11:01-05:00 It is time to cook your turkey, but at what temperature? McCormick suggests an oven temperature of 325 degrees Fahrenheit, adjusting the time based on weight. The only way to know when it is done is to use a meat thermometer,  Butterball explained. The poultry manufacturer broke their instructions down based on whether you have an oven-safe, leave-in thermometer or an instant-read thermometer. For cooks using an oven-safe, leave-in thermometer, Butterball instructs to “insert the probe into the thigh. The tip of...
    Relying on oven thermostats is so passé: MEATER+ is a thermometer that you put into your food while it’s in the oven and it transmits real-time data to your phone. It’s probably the coolest thermometer I’ve ever seen. The thermometer itself is smaller than a pen and connects to your phone over WiFi or Bluetooth. Afterward, it calculates both the inside of your food (I tried salmon after MEATER sent me a thermometer to try out) and the ambient temperature around it, which is an interesting test of your oven’s thermostat. One of my favorite features is the MEATER’s prediction: Based on what I can only guess is the rate of increasing temperature, it lets you know when your food will be  ready. Likewise, it can guide you to a perfect temperature with internal tips on different meats and fish. We set our salmon to cook at 125 degrees and we got it at 125 degrees — I don’t remember the last time I cooked salmon so perfectly. For $100, the value of this digital thermometer is really in...

Institute of Material Systems ScienceThan In lithium-ion batteries, granite (a negative layer of carbon) is applied to the anode (the negative electrode), and when this anode heats up, it reacts with lithium ions to form a dynamic film on the surface, which reduces the potential for movable lithium ions. It is a chemical reaction, so the higher the temperature, the easier it will be. Therefore, lithium...
