Showers feel fabulous — but how frequent is too frequent for skin ecology?

www.boelke-art.de/Getty Images

James Hamblin is tired of being asked if he’s smelly.

Hamblin, a physician and health reporter, has been fielding the question since 2016, when the article he wrote about his decision to stop showering went viral. The piece outlines compelling reasons why one might want to spend less time sudsing up: Cosmetic products are expensive, showering uses a lot of water, and the whole process takes up valuable time.

Perhaps most importantly, bathing disrupts our skin’s microbiome: the delicate ecosystem of bacteria, fungi, mites and viruses that live on (and in) our body’s largest organ. Most of these microbes are thought to be benign freeloaders; they feast on our sweat and oils without impacting

Asian shares mixed after technology fall leads US stock fall

TOKYO (AP) – Asian shares were mixed Friday following a selloff of technology shares on Wall Street.

Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 recouped early losses to rise 0.3% in morning trading to 23,310.94. South Korea’s Kospi dropped 0.8% to 2,377.92, while Australia’s S&P;/ASX 200 lost 0.8% to 5,860.50. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng gained 0.3% to 24,394.06, while the Shanghai Composite slipped 0.2% to 3,228.01.

Shares were lower in Taiwan and Southeast Asia.

Analysts say investors are preoccupied with the coronavirus pandemic and hopes for development of a safe, effective vaccine.

While Big Tech is benefiting from the shift to online life that the pandemic and ensuing stay-at-home economy has accelerated, critics said their stocks prices have surged too high.

“Big tech stocks might have seemed like safe havens, but they have found themselves at the center of a brutal sell-off,” said Stephen Innes, chief global market strategist at AxiCorp.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Sept. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vietnam is quickly being recognized as one of the fastest clothing and apparel manufacturers in the world. Despite being a developing nation, Vietnam is capable of producing high-quality goods with low production costs.

The country has dedicated over 2.3 million people towards the clothing and textile industry. This industry adheres to the dynamic market demands and rates while operating efficiently. 

Existing factories in China are becoming overcrowded. This allowed their manufacturing expertise to spill over borders into Vietnam. Multilateral free trade agreements such as TPP and EVFTA have also encouraged industry growth.

Opinion | Social Media Needs an Election Declaration of Conscience

Such a united front wouldn’t just be symbolic. “If you had the platforms together making a statement of their values, then when they take action, it creates a permission structure for reticent platform executives to make difficult decisions quickly,” David Kaye, former United Nations special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, told the editorial board. Such a move would also be a strong public signal of the gravity of the moment.

There’s precedent for this type of collaboration. In 2016, Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft came together to combat extremist content. The companies created a shared database using unique digital fingerprints to flag videos, pictures and memes promoting terrorist activity and ideologies. Domestic political disinformation poses different challenges than terrorist threats, but both are urgent matters of national security.

A public, transparent effort from the platforms would offer additional accountability for those spreading disinformation in the weeks and months

Singapore urges need for international organisations to ‘reform’ in digital age

Singapore has called on global organisations such as the United Nations (UN) and World Trade Organisation (WTO) to reform, so international rules are in line with cybersecurity and other key digital developments. The Asian nation also underscores the need for unified cooperation against COVID-19, which it notes has accelerated “self-defeating” sentiments worldwide including protectionism and xenophobia.
