One of the biggest changes that includes the new iPhone X has to do with security. This is the first Apple smartphone that replaces the fingerprint sensor (Touch ID) with a system based on facial recognition (Face ID). The company claims that the new system is much more secure.
In a series of documents published by Apple the engineers of the company have tried to answer as much doubt as possible of those interested in the iPhone X. The change of Touch ID to Face ID seems to be very radical, especially since just a year ago they released it on MacBook Pro laptops, but Apple says there is a good reason.
Phil Schiller, Apple vice president, commented during the presentation of the mobile that "while Touch ID has a probability of failing 1 in 50,000, Face ID has a probability of failing 1 in a million." The only way, the executive joked, is that you have an evil twin who wants to use your iPhone if you ask for permission.
The documents offer more information. In fact, it is more likely that Face ID in the case of identical twins less than 13 years of age, since their physiological characteristics have not developed completely, and in that case they recommend to use a password.
The company claims that Face ID is much safer than Touch ID, even when in some basic aspects of its operation are similar: Face ID will be blocked after five failed attempts to unlock the mobile and will require you to enter your password; even more important, the iPhone X stores the user's biometric data locally, which means they will never be sent to the company. Put another way: no, Apple will not have 3D images of your face in your servers.
Ledum is a homeopathic remedy that is rather unusual in its origin, appearance and application. The sumpfporst, as Ledum in German, is used today mainly with gout and rheumatism.
The hemp herbaceous plant Ledum palustre, as the marsh corpse is botanically correct, comes on swampy soils in Scandinavia, North America.
and North Asia. The shrub can grow up to 1.5 meters high and exudes a camphor-like smell. Even when inhaled, it can cause drowsiness. The consumption leads to a slight poisoning and increased aggression.
Potencies and dosage forms
The potencies D6 and D12 are most frequently used with Ledum. But also lower and higher potencies such as C6 and C12 are used in the form of globules.
Disease patterns and influence factors
The homeopathic remedy Ledum works mainly on the skin, the nerves and the joints. Accordingly, Ledum is used primarily in the following pathologies:
biss and stitches
water accumulation and edema
Bad mood, stoic erosion and general dissatisfaction are typical signs of a Ledum patient.
Areas of application
Ledum is a rather special homeopathic medicine, which is not missing in any well-sorted homeopathic house apothecary should. For example:
 Grief : beginning in the toes and feet, then ascending over the cross and the right hip to the left shoulder, worse by warmth, better by cold
Rheumatism: hot and swollen joints, strong, piercing pain, mostly wandering from below to the top, rest is good, worse by bed warmth
: fresh tick bites with swelling
: Water accumulation in the joints with pain and movement disturbances
In all typical Ledum diseases, heat is rather contraproductive and strengthened the complaints. Above all, the night warmth and alcohol also lead to a deterioration.
Acute complaints with gout or rheumatism as well as fresh stitches or tick bites are treated with a dosage of five globules every half an hour , The potencies D6 or D12 are used. As soon as an improvement shows – at the latest, however, after a day of treatment – the dosage has to be reduced to two or three doses. If the symptoms disappear, the remedy must be discontinued.
The treatment of edema occurs with higher potencies at greater distances.
Pregnancy, Breastfeeding and Baby
Ledum is not used for the treatment of pregnancy-like symptoms except for edema, but should still be in the house pharmacy to treat stitches and tick bites can. The same applies also to the period after birth, because Ledum can also be used with the child for the same purpose.
Treatment of edema should only be done under the guidance and supervision of an experienced midwife.
Side effects and precautions
Ledum is basically well-tolerated and does not involve any risks in the treatment of pregnant women or children. Nevertheless, treatment in self-medication should be restricted to acute complaints and their after-treatment, while the use in chronic complaints should be experienced hands.

Compared to Microsoft Surface Pro, the HP Specter x2 hybrid tablet version 2017 has some strong arguments: a very good keyboard, a powerful pen, a 12.3-inch screen with a higher density of 3.000×2.000 pixels, a more competitive price with equal configurations.
What to lean in his favor, at least for those who do not have big creative needs and are not looking for performance or autonomy. In France, the Specter x2 is available in two configurations: Intel Core i5-7260U, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD for 1,499 euros and Core i7-7560U, 16 GB of memory and 512 GB of SSD for 1,999 euros. This second version is in our opinion the most interesting to obtain better performances.
A superb screen, a professional keyboard
Knowing that most tablet hybrids with detachable keyboard are often very painful to use laid on the legs, we were pleasantly surprised by this model. You can easily tap on this keyboard which remains stable and offers an excellent return. The keys are wisely arranged, which will delight the expert typists. The backlight is convenient for working in the dark and can be turned off.
The touchpad is relatively spacious and never upset us. Congratulations! The screen is also excellent for working. It is not very big, but its density (293 pixels per inch against 267 dpi for the Surface Pro) makes it very comfortable and clean. It is also very bright when plugged into mains (450 nits). You can also turn off the backlight control to increase brightness when working with battery (415 nits).
However, do not wait not too much on the side of the color fidelity and the tonal range. The screen only covers 93% of the RGB range, which is acceptable for everyday use. Moreover, it is quite energy intensive. With 5.8 hours of autonomy, the Specter is far from its rivals and will probably not hold a day.
Optimized for the pen
The ratio of display identical to that of the surface Pro is much more comfortable to work than the 16: 9. On the other hand, this implies that the videos are framed by borders, but the higher resolution compensates and provides a sharp look for HD videos.
The new crutch offers good firmness with a tilt of up to 165 degrees to work with the stylus. About the latter, it offers a slight resistance a little rubber that we personally enjoyed. The Active Pen is comfortable and supports 1,024 pressure levels. Even if you do not draw, it allows for a very natural writing. But despite its qualities, it is not up to the performance of the stylus Microsoft which displays a latency of 21 milliseconds and 4,096 levels of pressure against 35 ms and 1,024.
The audio part is lifted above the batch for a tablet with a pair of speakers optimized by Bang & Olufsen.
For the rest, here are 3 elements to have in mind:
The Specter x2 integrates two USB-C ports for charging and connecting an external device. Note that the transfer rate is limited to 5 Gbit / s.
It is equipped with two fans, like its predecessor but which are rather discreet.
The infrared camera that was located in the back to act as a sensor has been moved to the front to be used with the Windows Hello biometric authentication system
The Specter x2 has the tricks to come up with a featherweight alternative to a laptop to accomplish basic tasks and distract yourself, all for a reasonable price. Provided you do not need a day of autonomy.
The Super NES Classic is promised a great success. All fans of classic video games seem ready to jump on it, Nintendo knows it and has planned "significantly larger" stocks than those of the NES Classic Mini. Unfortunately, despite this, it seems difficult to get hold of it, at least at the recommended rates of 95 euros. In reality pre-orders are available in waves, and one of them is in progress.
 We find it listed among the following merchants but the stocks are currently exhausted.
No stock available.

A healthy diet is of great importance during pregnancy. The child is dependent on the nutrients that his mother consumes. With the right food support your body in the coming 40 weeks. But what should you pay attention to when eating nutrition?
During pregnancy you should eat well. The growing baby is dependent on certain nutrients, minerals and vitamins.
1. Recommended Foods
The German Society for Nutrition (DGE) has put together four food groups. Your daily meals should include all groups:
Starchy foods: Try to always eat whole grain products.
Leaven meat (chicken, turkey) contains a lot of protein, so also beans, eggs, peas, beans, Fish and lentils.
The diet should be supplemented by yoghurt, cheese and milk. They provide important calcium for the strength of the bones
Fruit and vegetables: Eat five fruits and vegetables a day. Whether it is fresh or coming from the can is not so important. A delicious smoothie is a good change.
In the first 6 months you do not need additional calories. As soon as the pregnancy comes to an end and it is only 3 months, you should increase the amount of energy by 200 calories
Three great meals and two small snacks are recommended on the day. Nutrition: Important nutrients
Iron: Iron is responsible for the blood formation in the body. As the blood requirement during pregnancy increases by one to two liters, the body needs twice the amount of iron, which is about 30 mg per day. Therefore, the diet should include fermented foods such as apricots, strawberries, meat and whole grain products. Some women suffer from iron deficiency, which is why special caution is required.
Folic acid: For babies, folic acid plays an important role: it controls cell division and contributes to growth. A deficiency in the diet can lead to malformations in the brain or spinal cord. Already at the beginning, you should eat about 600 μg folic acid, which corresponds to a 50 percent higher requirement. Green vegetables such as cauliflower or broccoli as well as pods and citrus fruits are rich in this B vitamin.
Omega 3 fatty acids: Generally, unsaturated fatty acids should be on the diet stand. They are extremely healthy and are mainly contained in fish food. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of premature babies and have a positive effect on pregnancy. Therefore, the mother who is going to have to eat fish two to three times a week.
Magnesium: The mineral is of great importance: It is for the blood sugar level, the Energy metabolism and muscle work. If it lacks magnesium, it can lead to a premature birth. The recommended daily dose is 375 mg, whereby the mineral can be found in some water varieties. Daily foods such as oatmeal, rice, spinach or rye contain a lot of magnesium.
Iodine: The demand for iodine is about 180 to 200 μg per day. Pregnant women need 230 μg daily, breastfeeding mothers about 260 μg. This nutrient is a building block of the thyroid gland hormone and contributes to the control of the growth. Iodine is particularly relevant for bone and brain development.
The daily requirement of some nutrients is difficult to cover, which is why a supplement is recommended. Especially folic acid and iodine are hardly included in the daily diet. In the case of a deficiency of iron or magnesium, you can switch to a mineral water which has a high content of these substances.
3. Prohibited foods
You should completely dispense with foods which could be contaminated with bacteria and parasites. All raw meat and fish varieties are prohibited. Shark, merlin and swordfish contain natural mercury that could harm the baby. This also applies in a certain way to tuna, whose consumption is limited to two or three doses. In addition, liver products are to be avoided as they contain retinol.
Do not use alcoholic drinks. Coffee is permitted, but only up to a daily quantity of 200 mg of caffeine.
A healthy diet is important for baby and mother alike.

Google celebrates its 19th anniversary today and we must celebrate. While waiting for the big raout of the 20th anniversary, the firm does in the retrospective. First with a video posted on YouTube and titled " spin the wheel for Google's birthday ", yes with three "n". Unintentional spelling? This is unlikely insofar as the error is repeated three times. One of the explanations we envision without confirmation is that it is a reference to how the Google name was found.
According to David Koller of Stanford University, the cradle of the firm, the Google name is due to a fault on the googol, a very large number that corresponds to a 1 followed by 100 zeros. If the firm admits to being inspired by the number, it does not mention the history of the strike. Looking for a name for a huge database, Sean Anderson who was working at the time on the search engine thinks googolplex (a 1 followed by 1 googol zeros). Larry Page prefers the shortest Googol. Anderson then tries to verify that the domain name is free, he would have at that time made a spelling mistake and wrote Google.
The event is also entitled to a particular Doodle supposed to be displayed on the query "spin the wheel for the birthday of Google", but it does not seem to work in French, it will be more simple to do in English with "google birthday surprise spinner" which will give you access to a random Doodle randomly, including the Morpion, Snake, chilli game or the very nice game proposed for Beethoven's 245th birthday.
