Apple Watch Series 4 ECG feature is hardware-locked to the U.S.

Though earlier reports indicated that it would be possible for those in other countries, including Canada, to access the Apple Watch Series 4’s ECG feature by changing the wearable’s region, it seems that isn’t the case. Many assumed that similar to Apple News and other apps not available north of the American border, users would be able to change the Series 4’s region to access the Series 4’s new, currently U.S.-exclusive ECG functionality. According to Apple developer Guilherme Rambo (@_inside), the Series 4’s ECG functionality is region-locked to the U.S. version of the smartwatch and is based only on the serial number.

“I saw the difference in my own skin as I got older,” Ms. Myricks said. “I realized glow gives you the illusion of more hydration, and it adds life to the face.” Her Instagram account is a feast of illuminated skin, eyes, lips and cheeks. Our collective obsession with “glass” this and dewy that stems from our attraction to light, how it dances off a glassy finish. And glossy eyes are the easiest of all luminous looks to achieve — most simply, by tapping a layer of gloss onto your lids. “Gloss changes everything,” Ms. Myricks said. “It elevates. It emphasizes the shape of your eyes.” A glossy eye is simple to achieve, but because of the properties and texture of gloss, it’s not necessarily easy to wear. It doesn’t need to be scary, though. Here are a few strategies for making the glossy glow work for you. Like a lip color or lip gloss, you’ll have to reapply it. A shiny lipstick like Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick, $30, is designed to last longer than a gloss, so it sticks around on your eyes better than a regular gloss and creates a pretty wine halo. Bonus: The lipstick has a mineral-based SPF 15. Alternatively, a true gloss, like Tower 28 ShineOn Lip Jelly, $14, can be your go...

How outdoor lighting can make your yard an inviting living space

It may not seem like it, but one day soon this seemingly endless string of triple-digit temperatures will finally come to an end. And when it does, you’ll want to head outside and start enjoying your yard again, especially in the evening. You want lighting to reveal the beauty of your home, to make it an oasis of light in the dark of night. It should dramatize trees and foliage, wash walls and fence lines with soft illumination and spotlight spaces, such as seating areas and tables, so they can be more easily used. It can also enhance safety by lighting pathways and steps and boost security by adding light to vulnerable areas of the home. “Properly designed and installed, outdoor lighting can extend your home’s outdoor living space and enhance it aesthetically, while avoiding the glare you get with poorly positioned lighting,” said Andrew Galindo, owner and operator of Bryant Outdoor Lighting. How an outdoor lighting scheme is designed and installed depends on what it is intended to do. Here are some suggestions: Down lighting: Whether it’s illuminating an outdoor seating area or lighting up the barbecue grill so you can cook outdoors, spotlighting can create an oasis of light i...

PB2 Foods Wins Another Race to Market: First Peanut Powder with Prebiotics and Probiotics

TIFTON, Ga., Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – In a first for the category, PB2 Foods has begun rolling out PB2 Peanut Powder with Prebiotics & Probiotics – bringing the trend of offering additional functional benefits in new formulas to the nut butter market. The new product is now available at Walmart locations nationwide and is expected to hit shelves in other retail locations beginning in September, when it also will be available on Amazon. “This item is completely unique within our category, because no one else in the food business has produced a peanut butter powder with prebiotics and probiotics,” explained Craig Entwistle, the chief executive officer of PB2 Foods. “We’re also introducing a no sugar added element as part of this product, and that is a big differentiator for us that we know will translate to sales.” PB2 with Pre + Probiotics contains 6 grams of plant-based protein per 13-gram serving, which amounts to about 2 tablespoons.  It also has just 60 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per serving, or roughly 90-percent less fat and nearly 70-percent fewer calories than traditional peanut butter.  The prebiotic found in PB2′s ne...

Welding stainless steel tubes and pipes typically requires back purging with argon gas when using traditional

Welding stainless steel tubes and pipes typically requires back purging with argon gas when using traditional processes, such as gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW). But the cost of the gas and the setup time for the purging process can be significant, especially as the pipe diameters and lengths increase. When welding 300 series stainless steels, contractors can eliminate back purging in open-root pipe welding and still achieve high weld quality, retain the material’s corrosion resistance, and meet welding procedure specification (WPS) requirements by switching from traditional GTAW or SMAW to a modified short-circuit gas metal arc welding (GMAW) process. A modified short-circuit GMAW process also delivers additional benefits for productivity, efficiency, and ease of use that can help improve the bottom line. Favored for their corrosion resistance and strength, stainless steel alloys are used for many pipe and tube applications, including oil and gas, petrochemical, and biofuels. While GTAW traditionally is used for many stainless steel applications, it has some drawbacks that can be addressed with modified short-circuit GMAW. First, as the sk...
