    THE tactics that self-checkout machines use to catch shoplifters have been revealed. A criminology professor has found that these machines make and catch unlikely thieves, but extensions like large cameras and screens are sometimes merely to scare customers into morality. 1Criminology professor Adrian Beck found that self-checkout makes unlikely thieves of people who would not normally steal due to their semi-anonymous setupCredit: Getty Adrian Beck, a University of Leicester criminology professor, warns that the format of self-checkout can make thieves of the normally honest. "Normal shoppers can become very emboldened by the cloak of excuse-making that surrounds self-checkout," he said to Forbes. Stores are countering this boldness with things like large video screens that show the customer their every move as it appears on camera. These videos sometimes aren't monitored or recorded, the outlet reported.

    MILLIONS of Netflix lovers paying top dollar for the best package might be wasting money for quality they can't even receive. The streaming platform's most expensive premium subscription is the only way to get superior 4K, which sets you back £13.99/$19.99 a month. 2You might be paying extra for nothingCredit: Getty But those that think they're getting impressive cinematic results, think again. Especially if you're watching from a PC, as it turns out you could be getting short changed with 720p quality instead. That's because there are some strict standards for anything above that, meaning poor equipment and software might be holding you back. How to check 4K on Netflix The best way to know if you are actually able to receive 4K is to do a test. Netflix has a series of test patterns available, just search 'test patterns'. Play one and check to see if it says '3840 x 2160' in the top right corner. If you see that, you're all good, but anything below means you're not getting the full 4K experience.

    Ever thought about making that cheap-ish, young bottle of wine taste like something you’d find at the back of a wine cellar? Well, you’re in luck. The Clef du Vin is a wine aging tool that allows you to enjoy young wines without having to wait for them to age. It works on all types of wines: dry, sweet, mellow, sparkling, red, white or rose. Since it’s just six inches long, you can even take it with you when you travel. In fact, the elegant engraved brushed stainless steel tool comes with its own sleek case. The process is simple. You just pour a tiny bit of wine into a glass, then dip the Clef du Vin into it. It will accelerate the process of oxidation, so that, for every second that the wine is in contact with the metal, it will age one year.You do need to keep in mind that the effect is both cumulative and irreversible, so it is possible to go too far. Because, you see, the product was not actually developed so that we could...
    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes tore into President Donald Trump Wednesday evening for the president’s comments dismissing coronavirus deaths in the “blue states,” and for his dismissal of CDC Director Robert Redfield‘s Senate testimony concerning the timeline for a vaccine and urging Americans to continue to wear face masks. The All In With Chris Hayes host played a video clip from Redfield’s comments to the Senate Appropriations Committee, showing Redfield calling face masks “the most important, powerful public health tool we have.” “I will continue to appeal for all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings,” said Redfield, adding that a vaccine would most likely not be widely available until mid- to late-2021 and would not have a 100 percent efficacy. Hayes remarked that Redfield looked like he was “fighting himself there telling the truth,” knowing “it’ll not be popular with his boss” — and predictably Trump contradicted Redfield a few hours later, dismissing his comments as being “confused” or a result of misunderstanding the question. Redfield ended up responding indirectly to the president on Twitter, posting two tweets saying that...
