F.lux, A Hack For Your Devices And Your Sleep Schedule

first_imgThis may not sound like a big deal, but it is, because it minimizes exposure to sleep-delaying blue light. As the f.lux team explains, natural light is more blue, while most artificial light (including candlelight) is warmer. Incandescent bulbs become more red in tone when you dim them. But newer LEDs and CFLs don’t—this includes the backlight on your monitor. By changing the color temperature of your machine, f.lux removes the blue light and makes it easier to keep working… and still fall asleep at the desired time.Putting F.lux To The TestThe f.lux team points to an array of research that points to the harmful effects of blue light on sleep, but here’s my first-hand experience: it works. I travel across time zones on a regular basis, and am constantly struggling to get to sleep at the right local time, whether I’m in Palo Alto, New York City or London. By using f.lux, I’m able to work later without any impact on my sleep.Of course, the better course of action is simply to stop using one’s computer at night, because blue light isn’t the only thing that will keep us from sleep. But f.lux has become an essential utility for me. I use it every single day.The f.lux effect takes some getting used to. The first time you see your screen take on a muddy orange-pink hue can be a bit disconcerting, and it’s not a good fit for those doing graphics work that depends on accurate color mapping. But for those of us who just want to answer a few emails before bed without the blue light triggering our brains into delaying sleep by an hour or more, f.lux is incredibly useful.You can download it here. You’ll thank me later.Image courtesy of Shutterstock. Related Posts Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Just because you can’t shake your addiction to your devices doesn’t mean it should keep you up at night. That is, if you’ve discovered f.lux, a free, patent-pending utility for Mac, Windows, Linux and (jailbroken) iOS devices that makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day.Sound simple? Well, it is. It’s also one of the very few absolutely indispensable utilities you can find for your computer, especially if you travel for work.Conquering The Blue Light DemonIn 2012, the American Medical Association’s Council on Science and Public Health acknowledged that it:Recognizes that exposure to excessive light at night, including extended use of various electronic media, can disrupt sleep or exacerbate sleep disorders, especially in children and adolescents. This effect can be minimized by using dim red lighting in the nighttime bedroom environment.This is precisely what f.lux does. While there are a number of ways to handle the brightness of your computer’s display (not to mention a few like-for-like competitors), f.lux does something different. f.lux actually changes the color temperature of your display.

Army denies link with ‘soldiers’ in video over Gorkhaland

first_imgWe don’t support Gorkhaland: BJP  The authorities also pointed out that one person in the video refers to the “Gorkha Rifles as Gorkha Regiment” which an “Indian Army Gorkha will not do”.“Also consider the fact that Gorkhas both from Nepal and India are employed by security agencies and such companies in many countries; especially in Afghanistan,” the statement said.‘CM should be hanged’The video, slightly longer than two minutes, shows a group of men, purportedly carrying guns, raising slogans in support of the demand for the State of Gorkhaland. One of them also said that the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee “should be hanged”.As for the agitation in Darjeeling by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), one person in the video asked, “What is happening in Darjeeling? Just because we voiced our demands and two or three stones were thrown, they (police) have to open fire?”Also Read After a video surfaced showing a group of men claiming to belong to the Indian Army and threatened to “hang” Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over the Gorkhaland issue, the Indian Army has denied any association with them.“It is to inform that the video circulated is not of serving Indian Army soldiers,” the Army Headquarters in New Delhi said in a statement. It also argued that the uniform of the men in the video is different from the usual Army uniform and the type of vehicle they were sitting in is not used by the Indian Army.Points out loopholes“The uniform is different. The vehicle appears to be a Toyota which is not used by the Indian Army,” the authorities said. They also said that the identity card worn by the men in the video appears to be of a “different pattern”.Also Read GJM offers Muslims 12-hour ‘window’ for Eid celebrations “Listen Mamataji, we also know how to use a gun,” the man in the video said.The development comes at a time when there is high tension in Darjeeling Hills over the GJM’s agitation demanding a separate State of Gorkhaland with the West Bengal government calling in the Army.Ham operators pick up suspiciousHam radio operators working with the security forces to track down radio communications of underground GJM leaders have picked up “suspicious and coded signals” of the activists to other countries and states.The security forces and intelligence agencies first got the clue that the GJM was using radio signals as a mode of communication when two radio sets were seized during the June 15 raid on the premises of some Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) leaders.It was then that the police administration decided to deploy a group of Ham radio operators to track the radio communication of GJM activists.The operators picked up the suspicious cross border signals during the drill.“Most of the coded signals and communications were in Nepali and Tibetan languages. After decoding the words, we came to know about some kind of consignment that is about to come. The rest is classified and we cannot disclose it,” an official privy to information told PTI.last_img read more

Video: Laquon Treadwell Is Healthy Enough To Do Backflips On A Trampoline

first_imgLaquon Treadwell is upside down as he performs a flip on a trampoline.Laquon TreadwellOle Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell suffered a gruesome broken leg late in the 2014 season, but has since made a remarkable recovery. He was able to join his teammates for spring practice, and posted an Instagram video this afternoon of himself doing backflips on a trampoline.Yes, you read that correctly. Treadwell’s leg looks plenty healthy in these two clips, but we’re thinking Rebels’ head coach Hugh Freeze’s heart will skip a beat or two when he sees them, if he hasn’t already.
