What is digital X-ray?

In an analog x-ray, a light sensitive film is exposed to the X-rays and followed by this, the film is developed. The digital X-ray has modernized this system and uses a digital detector system instead of the usual photographic light-sensitive film used in analog X-rays. So during the Xray session, the X-rays are directed to a particular part of the body so other parts of the body are not exposed to any radiation.

The digital detector system on opposite sides captures the incoming X-rays which varies in strength and converts them into electrical signals which are then shown on the computer. because there is no time needed for film development The  X-ray images can immediately be collected after the exam a compared t the traditional system.

Every woman who uses a mascara in order to put the focus on their eyelashes by making them longer, thicker and curled. In order to do this, mascara has different components like 
  • Pigments which are used for colour, 
  • Wax for thickening the mascara and 
  • Preservatives in order to increase the longevity of the mascara.

The brush is also another key component of an effective mascara. There are two types of brush which are used nowadays. One of them is the popular brush that is made from synthetic fibre bristles. The newer version is moulded into a single piece. 

For the brush, its shape is equally important. For example:
  • Curved brush for example help in curling the lashes 
  • Straight brush help lengthens the eyelashes. 
  • Thicker brush help in making thicker eyelashes.

Doctors in Bangladesh asked to write legible prescriptions by Court.

Narendra Sahu, Bangalore

A Bangladesh high court recently ordered that all doctors should from now onwards write easy to read prescriptions which should be written in block letters or should be typed. This is to ensure that no wrong medicine isbeing prescribed to the patients. The court has the governent to issue a circular regarding this within 30 days.

In addition to this, another ruling was issued that asked doctors to write generic names of medicines in their prescriptions. This was because it was observed that a lot of doctors prescribe the more expensive brand name medicines instead of the generic names. Because it was a doctor that prescribed these medicines the patients are less likely to look for alternative options. This causes patients to buy more expensive medicine even though cheaper alternatives are available in the market.

I am having issues getting WiFi signal in some parts of my home. What should I do?

First of all, make sure that your WiFi router is in the centermost location possible in the house. If it is already in the central location and you still have issues there could be issues with the range of your device in which you could buy a repeater.

Try and contact civil contractors, builders or real estate developers in your city to find whether they have any supervisor jobs available.

Other than this you can also try contacting job consultancies in your city. When you visit them a resume that has your experience in the said domain would help you out the most.

Do dogs sweat?

1 user answered

Aayushi Parashar, Delhi

On a hot summer day or after strenuous exercise, most pups let their tongues hang out of their mouths as they huff and puff or they lie outstretched on the cool floor. It's not uncommon for dogs to pant after a long run, but do they also sweat?
Dogs pant as a means of evaporative cooling: when a dog gets hot, it will open its mouth and breathe heavily. As water evaporates from the dog's tongue, nasal passages and lungs, this helps lower its body temperature.
While dogs primarily use panting to cool themselves down, they also sweat — but not where you may think
Dogs actually sweat through their paws, Carrier said. In 2011, she was working with beagles in her lab, and while checking to ensure their nails were well trimmed, she noticed something peculiar in several of the dogs. Paw pads are a specialized type of skin that's heavily keratinized, to make them tough for walking on, but these dogs had paws that were damp — and in some cases, they were even dripping with sweat.
In several of the animals, this led to a great deal of pain because the skin was softer and more delicate than a normal paw pad."It's like having an open blister," Carrier told Live Science.
Carrier's research was the first to describe hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, in beagles.
But the sweat glands in the dogs' feet may also serve another purpose, according to Carrier.
"They do have true sweat glands in their paw pads, [but] that's not enough to cool them down," she said.
Panting cools a much greater surface area than a dog's paws would. According to Carrier, experts speculate that sweat on a dog's paw pads actually has more to do with traction than temperature. In other words, it makes their paws tackier and better at gripping the ground.
"The one thing I always tell people is a normal dog foot should smell like they just had their paws in a bag of corn chips, because they do sweat through their feet," Carrier said. "It has a salty smell."
Dogs also have sweat glands in their noses, but again, they're not necessarily for cooling purposes, Carrier said. While it remains unproved, Carrier said the thinking is that a damp nose better attracts scent molecules to the olfactory center. The canine sense of smell is famous, and its power has recently been harnessed to sniff out diabetes, cancer, and even dangerous infections like C. difficile. A 2012 research study conducted at the VU University Medical Centre in the Netherlands trained a beagle to sit or lie down when the scent of the bacterium was detected. The dog performed with impressive accuracy, correctly identifying 25 out of 30 infected samples and 265 out of 270 controls.
In comparison studies, where they took fecal samples and did a side-by-side lab test, the trained dogs were nearly as accurate, if not better, than the test.
