What happens if Drink Lemon Water Every Day For 2 Weeks

    Humans have been experimenting with tonics since the beginning of time. From the fountain of youth to alkaline water to kale juice, we’re always searching for that magic potion that will restore health and wellness, ward off illness, and make us look and feel 10 years younger. But what if that potion isn’t so mysterious? What if it’s just… lemon water? Lemon water has been touted as a health and wellness aid for years by some MDs, clean living advocates, and, of course, celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow. And unlike packaged juice cleanses that supposedly brighten your skin and age you backwards, lemon water won’t break the bank. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and it seems safe (as long as you don’t try to exist on lemon water alone)—but does it really work wonders? Some proponents of le...

Amnesty says Donald Trump’s poisonous rhetoric makes world a darker place

    Amnesty International said on Wednesday that US president Donald Trump's poisonous rhetoric on his way to winning the White House led a global trend towards increasingly divisive politics in 2016 that had made the world a darker place. In its annual report covering 159 countries, the human rights group said principles of human dignity and equality had come under assault from politicians seeking election and it zeroed in on Mr Trump, who took office on January 20.

The world, it said, had become a darker ... unstable place, with a rise in hate speech targeting refugees across Europe and the United States. The early ind...

WhatsApp Changes Everything With Its New Status Feature

    WhatsApp is making a radical update to its app, turning it for the first time into a platform for passively consuming content, similar to the way people scroll through their Facebook or Instagram newsfeeds and it’s a move that could finally usher in a money-making system like advertising. WhatsApp’s new Status feature, being rolled out on Monday, will let users share photos, GIFs or videos overlaid with drawings, emojis and a caption that will be visible to selected friends for 24 hours, before disappearing. If this sounds familiar, that’s because it’s exactly like Snapchat’s hugely successful Stories feature, launched three years ago, which lets users share similarly ephemeral timelines. The move probably shouldn’t be surprising. Facebook, which owns WhatsApp, saw its oth...
