Are hurricanes getting stronger – and is climate breakdown to blame? By Oliver Milman

What is a hurricane, exactly?

A hurricane is a large rotating storm that forms over tropical or subtropical waters in the Atlantic. These low pressure weather systems draw upon warm water and atmospheric moisture to fuel their strength and will gather pace if not slowed by patches of dry air, crosswinds or landfall.

“They are very tall towers of winds that move at the same speed, sometimes 60,000ft tall,” says Jim Kossin, a scientist at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “If they are unmolested by wind shear or run over land they will continue on their merry way.”

COOL DOWN IN THE SUMMER • WHAT’S BETTER — COLD OR HOT DRINKS? by Jen Rhines

Woman drinking water after exercise

Cooling down after exercise, especially in the summer heat, is an important part of recovery. What is the best way to do it — do you go for an ice cold drink or a hot one?

Does consuming hot beverages in warm weather really cool you down? What about during and after exercise?

HOW A HOT DRINK CAN BE REFRESHING

It’s late afternoon, you want to do another workout, and you’re really craving that large coffee or tea.
However, it’s the middle of summer; so do you get iced coffee or tea instead?

A hot beverage could actually cool you down — here’s how it works:

  • Your core temperature initially rises (you are adding heat to your body)
  • The sensors in your mouth, throat, and digestive tract send a signal to your brain to produce more sweat
  • This increase in perspiration is the key to cooling you down

While lots of sweating may feel uncomfortable or seem undesirable, sweat is beneficial and helps cool you down when the sweat evaporates from your skin.

Keep in mind:

For this cooling effect to take place, you need to be in an environment where the sweat can evaporate.

Does this mean that in hot and humid conditions, when sweat doesn’t evaporate so easily, you should opt for a cold drink?

Not so fast.

Let’s take a look at how drinks affect temperature after exercising in different weather conditions.

HOW TO STAY COOL DURING EXERCISE

A study compared body temperature after exercising for people who were drinking either a warm drink or a cold drink during exercise. It showed that drinking a 50˚C drink, which is even cooler than the temperature of the usual takeaway hot drinks, reduces the overall body heat storage more than drinking cold drinks.(1)

And what happens if you drink a cold drink?

 

EFFECT OF COLD WATER ON THE BODY DURING & AFTER EXERCISE

Drinking cold water or ingesting ice after exercise can shock the organs and doesn’t help the body with its natural cooling process.

What happens when you drink a cold drink during exercise:

  • During exercise your internal body heat moves to your body’s surface, while your inner temperature actually decreases.
  • Ingesting too much cold food or drink will cause the blood vessels to tighten (restrict blood flow) and make the body retain heat. This will make you feel warmer, not cooler.

SO, WHAT IS THE BEST CHOICE OF DRINK IN HOT WEATHER?

Is it hot and humid outside?

  • Yes: your drinks should be room temperature.
  • No: drink something hot so you sweat more and cool off.

Don’t forget:

Hot or cold — what matters most is that you stay hydrated. Watch out for thesesigns of dehydration and find out how much liquid you need per day and what are the healthiest drink choices to help you stay hydrated.

This girl has shared the reality of an acrylic nail addiction By: LAURA CAPON

If you are prone to biting your nails when you’re nervous/bored like me (I didn’t only lose 2 hours and 13 minutes of my life to Fantastic Beasts, I lost all my nails too) then you will know how appealing the idea of acrylic nails can be.

My short stubby nails will never get their own Instagram post, in fact they are actually an Instagram hindrance. For instance, If I’m trying to take a picture of my new highlighter, I have to hold it in an incredibly awkward fist shape, to avoid anyone knowing the truth of my Jonah Hill hands.

Beauty blogger Amelia Perrin can not relate to my struggles, because she has the kind of enviably long talons that people like me can only dream of…

But Amelia also revealed the painful truth behind an acrylic nail addiction. Taking to Twitter, she posted a picture of her real nails and oh god it’s making me stress bite my own nails.

a lot of people on curiouscat ask me about my acrylics, presumably wanting a set themselves. sharing these to show u the reality lol

Admittedly I’m an absolute baby when it comes to things like this but that looks INCREDIBLY PAINFUL.

Maybe I’m not being such a baby after all…
