CocaCola and Sanofi to launch beauty drinks in France

Coca-Cola and Sanofi to launch ‘beauty drinks’ in France AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted Oct 16, 2012 4:32 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Coca-Cola Co. and Sanofi are partnering to launch a line of “beauty drinks” in France.The drinks will be positioned under the Oenobiol Beautific brand, but Coca-Cola declined to provide further details. The Coca-Cola business unit in France said in a statement that the drinks will be sold in a “small scale pilot” limited to a number of pharmacies in the country.Coca-Cola, the world’s largest beverage maker, declined to comment beyond the statement. But as concerns about sugary drinks grow at home and abroad, the Atlanta-based company has moved to diversify its options. Earlier this year, Coca-Cola in France introduced Sprite with stevia, a natural sweetener that has no calories. The launch followed its introduction of Fanta with stevia in 2010.Sanofi, a drug maker based in Paris, bought Laboratoire Oenobiol in 2009; the company makes nutritional supplements for skin and hair care.The partnership to make the drinks was reported earlier Tuesday in the Wall Street Journal.Citing a presentation of the drinks made to the Sanofi works council, the Journal said the four Oenobiol drinks will be made of mineral water, fruit juice and nutrition additives. The drinks will come with claims that they “help strengthen hair and nails, embellish skin, lose weight and improve vitality,” the paper said.In 2009, more than two dozen states settled a case with Coca-Cola and Nestle over the green tea drink Enviga, and claims that drink would burn more calories than it contained.Coca-Cola and Nestle agreed to add disclosures to Enviga and any similarly formulated product to disclaim any weight loss benefits and note that weight loss is only possible through diet and exercise.The news of the beauty drinks in France comes as Coca-Cola struggles to grow its sales volume in Europe, with sales volume up just 1 per cent in the third quarter. read more

Trump says he wants to shift focus to renegotiating NAFTA tax cuts

President Donald Trump speaks during a rally at the Kentucky Exposition Center, Monday, March 20, 2017, in Louisville, Ky. (AP Photo/John Minchillo) WASHINGTON, United States of America – U.S. President Donald Trump has signalled his desire to shift his focus to renegotiating trade deals like NAFTA, after a bumpy patch marked by controversy involving Russia and internal debates over an unpopular health bill.He told a rally crowd that he soon wants to get to the North American Free Trade Agreement and tax cuts, speaking to supporters Monday after the FBI announced it was investigating possible criminal activity linking Trump campaign associates to Russian email hackers.It comes after weeks of difficult negotiations on reforms to U.S. health legislation, with polls suggesting little support for the Republican health reform even among party supporters themselves.Trump said he can’t wait to get to other priorities — one is tax cuts and the another is renegotiating trade deals including the one with the U.S.’s neighbours, which he blasted daily on the campaign trail.“We’re starting on NAFTA very soon,” Trump told the Kentucky crowd.“Somebody said to me, ‘When are you starting on NAFTA?’… I’ve been here like 51 days. Give me a chance. … We’re going to do something with NAFTA that you are gonna be very, very impressed with.“That’s gonna be an easy one, folks.”Trump, who just passed the 60th day of his presidency, has suggested he only wants minor tweaks with Canada in the old trade deal. Yet some lawmakers who would be consulted by the White House and would vote on any deal have suggested they want significant changes, including loosening Canada’s dairy and poultry controls.Before important trade negotiations can begin, these lawmakers must be consulted for at least 90 days under U.S. law. Members of Congress are awaiting that 90-day signal from the White House.That means NAFTA negotiations couldn’t start before summer, at the earliest.This isn’t the first Trump has teased an imminent NAFTA move. In early February, he said: “(We) will be very soon, as soon as we get the go-ahead. … We want to get that whole thing kick-started and going.”But the White House is now eager to start talking trade, Politico reported Monday night. It said Trump preparing to order a review of all U.S. trade deals and quoted one senior administration official: “NAFTA is going to be at the top of the list.”An administration official said the White House wants to talk more about trade and less damaging story lines. Politico cited an official saying the administration wants to review how the Internet has changed the terms of agreements, and how the countries have changed their production.A question mark looming over the NAFTA process is whether the president can start consulting Congress before his trade nominee is confirmed — the law says that’s the person with the legal responsibility to do it.Another outlet, Axios, said Trump’s commerce secretary walked him through upcoming trade moves last weekend at Trump’s Florida mansion. Axios reported that five trade-related executive orders could start rolling out this week. by Alexander Panetta, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 20, 2017 7:06 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 21, 2017 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Trump says he wants to shift focus to renegotiating NAFTA, tax cuts read more

Le tombeau dune chanteuse dil y 3000 ans découvert en Égypte

first_imgLe tombeau d’une chanteuse d’il y 3.000 ans découvert en ÉgypteDécouvert en janvier 2011 dans la Vallée des Rois, un tombeau vieux de près de 3.000 ans a enfin pu être ouvert ce lundi 16 janvier par des archéologues suisses et égyptiens. À l’intérieur, se trouve la momie d’une chanteuse de temple, comme le suggèrent des hiéroglyphes.Son nom : Nehmes Bastet. Son statut social : fille du grand prêtre d’Amon. Sa fonction : chanteuse dans un temple. Son époque : la 22ème dynastie égyptienne (quelque part entre 945 et 712 avant J-C). C’est ce que raconte une inscription en hiéroglyphes ornant le tombeau dont un sarcophage, peint en noir, renferme la momie intacte de cette femme de l’Égypte antique.À lire aussiLe pharaon Toutânkhamon n’était sans doute pas celui que l’on croitDécouvert par une équipe de l’Université de Bâle (Suisse) dans la Vallée des Rois, au début des évènements politiques de 2011 en Égypte, ce tombeau n’est que le 2ème mis au jour sur ce site depuis la découverte de celui de Toutankhamon, en 1922. Et bien qu’il ait été découvert au début de l’année, il vient tout juste d’être ouvert par le Pr Susanne Bickel, de l’Université de Bâle, sa collègue de terrain Elina Paulin-Grothe, et le Dr Mohammed El-Bialy, inspecteur en chef des Antiquités de Haute Égypte.Selon Mohammed Ibrahim, ministre des Antiquités égyptiennes cité par BBC News, la découverte est importante, car “elle montre que la Vallée des Rois a également été utilisée pour l’inhumation de personnes ordinaires et de prêtres de la 22ème dynastie”.

Together, they create a unique blend of sounds. Some robots resonate sing like hail hitting a tin roof; others emulate the tune of revving engines.“Where we’re headed with robots and space is really to allow them to be more tightly integrated with the humans working outside a module or on the surface of a planetary body, whether the Moon or Mars,” Roberts said. “We really want to take that to the next step now.”If machinery isn’t your thing, the European Space Agency and NASA last month published “sounds of the Sun,” captured by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

Issues still to be addressed for Breakthrough Starshot project

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further A team of researchers at the California Institute of Technology has taken a hard look at the challenges facing efforts to carry out the Breakthrough Starshot project. In their Perspective piece published in the journal Nature Materials, the researchers outline the obstacles still facing project engineers and possible solutions. Citation: Issues still to be addressed for Breakthrough Starshot project (2018, May 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-05-issues-breakthrough-starshot.html First test of Breakthrough Starshot interstellar probe highlights likely damage due to gas and dust Journal information: Nature Materials © 2018 Phys.org Breakthrough Starshot is a project launched by backer Yuri Milner two years ago—its aim is to send a spacecraft out of the solar system toward Alpha Centauri by the middle of this century. Most designs for such a spacecraft surround the idea of a light sail and a tiny device to allow for communications. The craft would be powered by a laser array situated on Earth. To reach Alpha Centauri in a reasonable amount of time, the craft will need to travel very fast, close to 20 percent of the speed of light. Alpha Centauri is, after all, 4.37 light years away. And while the concept is relatively simple, the design presents serious challenges, as the team highlights.A light sail can be pushed by beams from a laser due to momentum carried by photons, the researchers note. But for it to work, the sail must be reflective. It will also have to be very thin (perhaps just a few atoms across) and lightweight, less than a gram. Thus far, engineers have looked at graphene, but it is not reflective, which means it would need a coating of some sort. On the other hand, reflective materials such as metals are too heavy. A suitable material has not yet been found, the team reports.Another challenge the team will face is how to keep multiple laser beams steady and focused as they pass through the Earth’s atmosphere. That will likely mean use of low near-infrared beams, which means the sail would have to be able to reflect such wavelengths of light. But then issues of weight and heat generation come into play. Such issues, the team notes, mean that engineers will have to balance many factors to find just the right combination of materials.Something else the team will have to consider is the shape of the sail—it will not likely be a simple flat sheet, because imperfections on its surface would send the craft careening off into space. Instead, engineers will have to develop a design that allows for self-correction. More information: Harry A. Atwater et al. Materials challenges for the Starshot lightsail, Nature Materials (2018). DOI: 10.1038/s41563-018-0075-8AbstractThe Starshot Breakthrough Initiative established in 2016 sets an audacious goal of sending a spacecraft beyond our Solar System to a neighbouring star within the next half-century. Its vision for an ultralight spacecraft that can be accelerated by laser radiation pressure from an Earth-based source to ~20% of the speed of light demands the use of materials with extreme properties. Here we examine stringent criteria for the lightsail design and discuss fundamental materials challenges. We predict that major research advances in photonic design and materials science will enable us to define the pathways needed to realize laser-driven lightsails.last_img read more

How to get rid of acne this summer

first_imgYou can use cosmetics to cover up some facial flaws, but if you have acne, you can’t completely hide it. Summer skin is prone to infections as dust, oil, heat and humidity tend to stick to your face resulting in acne so make sure you are paying attention to it.Cosmetologists and Homeopath Physicians list some ways to prevent acne in summer:Wash your face only once or twice a day with lukewarm water, a mild cleanser, and gentle motion. No scrubbing or harsh abrasive products needed. Make sure one of those times you’re washing your face is in the evening, to remove makeup and dirt. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfDo not squeeze your pimple. However, this usually leads to further inflammation, which makes the acne look worse and last longer. Also this will leave a bad pigmented scar.Avoid processed foods, generally high in saturated fats and trans-fat; it can lead to an increase in sebum production triggering acne.Also avoid oily food like chips, french fries, pakodas, aloo tikkis etc which taste yummy but contain saturated oils that increase cholesterol in the body which leads to poor blood circulation and can worsen your acne. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveInclude Vitamin A in your diet as it is a good source of corotenoids. Carrots, papaya, spinach, tomato juice are a rich source of corotenoids.Stopping the use of foundation for a week could help clear up acne breakouts, and it could stop any rashes that are caused by irritating ingredients.Do not use make up on acne skin and even if it’s important then use non-comedogenic and non-irritating products.Fibre plays an important role in getting rid of body toxins. Eat cereals and fibre rich food and fruits such as blueberries, grapefruit to detoxify your body and clear your skin.Don’t cover your entire face with several layers of concealer. Instead, use complementary colour to blend in the blemishes.last_img read more

Bad behaviour in Bali is killing Aussies

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W The popular holiday destination of Bali claims on average one Australian life every nine days and hundreds more seeking consular help while in the island paradise. For the year 2011-2012, 39 Australians died in Bali, 93 sought consular help while hospitalised, 36 Aussies were arrested and 18 were jailed and needed assistance, according to the Herald Sun. While details of the cause of deaths are retained, Australian consular officials say alcohol and drug fuelled violence in the country’s night clubs are the main cause of trouble for Australian travellers. These figures could be higher as hospital admissions and arrests are only recorded when those involved seek help and have Australian officials contacted. The Australian consulate often assists with Aussies who have overstayed their visas.  Other instances include missing person’s reports when travellers fail to report a change in plans to fellow travellers. All arrests reported were males aged 18-65.last_img read more
