How to make your interior decor winter friendly, check it out here. Pixabay

Home decor items are not just a way to beautify your abode. They also help to assess your age. Before you touch 30, it will be wise to keep a couch, candles that you burn and much more in your house.

Here are a few items that should be placed in your nest by the time you are 30, reports huffingtonpost.com:


* A real couch: A couch is the hub of your social life, where friends gather to talk and hangout. It’s where you spend most of your alone time when you are awake. Buying a real couch is an investment and one that shouldn’t be rushed into lightly. Couches should be stain-resistant, and must fit the space. Couches shouldn’t dominate but need to reflect your personality.

* Candles that you actually burn: Many people like to keep candles for years to decorate house. And even when they got covered with dust you didn’t burn them. It’s time to burn them. The thing about candles is you can replace them with other candles and they are cheap too.

* Fresh flowers: They not only make your house beautiful, but if you buy flowers your friends will assume someone brought them to you.

* Matching towels: The thing about towels is that we only tend to replace them when we move. A new colour scheme requires a couple of new towels. So, by the time you are 30, chances are you have two tan towels, two brown towels, two towels in four shades of green — none of them match and all of them have some life left in them. It’s best to get rid of them. (Bollywood Country)

Just three minutes of exposure to deep red light once a week, when delivered in the morning, can significantly improve declining eyesight, finds a new study.

Just three minutes of exposure to deep red light once a week, when delivered in the morning, can significantly improve declining eyesight, finds a new study. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, found there was, on average, a 17 per cent improvement in participants' colour contrast vision when exposed to three minutes of 670 nanometre (long wavelength) deep red light in the morning and the effects of this single exposure lasted for at least a week.

However, when the same test was conducted in the afternoon, no improvement was seen. "We demonstrate that one single exposure to long wave deep red light in the morning can significantly improve declining vision, which is a major health and wellbeing issue, affecting millions of people globally," said lead author, Glen Jeffery from the University College London.

As the world reopens after 18-20 months of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns, a new variant of the coronavirus -- called B.1.1.529 -- has been identified in South Africa

As the world reopens after 18-20 months of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns, a new variant of the coronavirus -- called B.1.1.529 -- has been identified in South Africa that has left the scientific community worried, as they fear that this new strain could fuel outbreaks in several countries and cripple health systems once again. Over 100 cases have been detected in South Africa, where the new strain is slowly becoming the dominant one.

Here are five things you should know about this deadly super Covid variant that has forced a number of countries, including the UK, Israel, Italy and Singapore, to restrict travel from South Africa and other countries in the region.

1. According to South African health officials, the 'B.1.1.529' variant has many more mutations than scientists expected, especially after a severe third wave, which was driven by the Delta variant. Many of the mutations are of concern for immune evasion and transmissibility.

2. B.1.1.529 carries a high number of mutations in its spike protein, which plays a key role in the virus' entry into cells in the human body. The B.1.1.529 variant has 50 mutations overall, including more than 30 on the spike protein alone which is the target of most current Covid vaccines.
