- Calcium Deficiency - Does Milk Really Help Your Bones?In a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism investigating the impact of dietary calcium on bone mineral density, researchers studied nearly 700 postmenopausal women with thinning, but not osteoporotic, bones. The scientists measured the women's bone mineral density (BMD) and calcium intake over a period of six years.
The women's calcium intake was consistent over the study period and ranged from an average of 469 mg in the group getting the lowest daily amounts of calcium to 1,361 mg among the women with the highest average intake.
Despite the wide range in calcium intake, their BMD was remarkably similar from start to finish of the study period. The gradual decline in bone density was virtually identical among all the women in the study regardless of how much or how little dietary calcium they got each day.

- Moto's Latest Phone Has a Genius Solution for Preventing Vertical Video SyndromeFrom the article:...the most clever thing about the Moto One Action's Action Camera is how Motorola rotated the camera sensor 90 degrees inside the phone, so that when you're holding it in portrait orientation (which I admit is more comfortable and a big reason why vertical videos have become so pervasive), the phone still records footage in landscape mode.https://gizmodo.com/motos-latest-phone-has-a-genius-solution-for-preventing-1837284438
