There are professional tools in the market that claim to remove the ear wax.


Ear wax is a natural barrier against the dirt, sand, and bugs preventing them from reaching the eardrum or entering into the brain through it. However, if the ear waxes mount up excessively then it can affect your hearing ability. People generally use cotton swabs or Q-tips to clean ears but rather help push the ear wax further inside the ear canal; making it impossible to clean. Frequent use of cotton swabs may cause damage to the eardrum, hearing loss, or ringing in the ears.

In order to prevent the use of Q-tips or cotton swabs, there are professional tools in the market that claim to remove the ear wax. But not all are made of high quality, durable material and tested safe for use. Tvidler is the best and affordable ear wax removal tool that performs the same job at a fraction of cost following all the safety measures needed to eliminate dirt or ear wax.

Australian botanists have assembled the genomic sequence ofthe New South Wales Waratah.

Australian botanists have assembled the genomic sequence of one of Australia's most significant and iconic flowers, the New South Wales Waratah. The team of researchers, led by the Australian Institute of Botanical Science, said the sequencing, published in the Molecular Ecology Resources journal on Wednesday, would play a vital role in the future conservation of the plant.

The research would allow future varieties of the flowering plant to be bred with protection against pests and disease. It would also provide a stepping stone for the sequencing of other closely related plants, Xinhua news agency reported. Lead researcher Stephanie Chen, from the Institute's Research Centre for Ecosystem Resilience and (University of New South Wales) UNSW Sydney, said the process of sequencing was like "putting together a puzzle and it has billions and billions of pieces."

"With the help of three different sequencing technologies, we've been able to link all the pieces that are the bits of DNA together, ultimately revealing the puzzle," she said.

AIR Punjabi is quite popular in the US, the UK, Canada, Pakistan, Australia, Finland, Ireland, and Germany.

Fiji has moved ahead of the US to become the country (excluding India) where All India Radio (AIR) live-streams on 'News On Air' app are most popular. In a statement on Monday, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting said: "Fiji has toppled the US to take the first position. The UK and United Arab Emirates have slipped to 7th and 10th spot respectively. New Zealand, Japan, Ireland and Papua New Guinea have entered the top 10, while Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Kuwait are no longer in the top list."'

Omicron is estimated to be 58.6 per cent of Covid-19 variants circulating in the USA.

The fast-spreading Omicron variant is likely to soon replace the Delta strain globally, experts in Singapore have warned, as countries after countries have reported a record surge in Covid cases. The warning comes as the World Health Organization (WHO) has cautioned that the more transmissible Omicron together with the currently circulating Delta variants might lead to "a tsunami of cases," putting immense pressure on national health systems.

"From current data, it looks like Delta will go down over time relative to Omicron," Dr Sebastian Maurer-Stroh, executive director of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research Bioinformatics Institute in Singapore, told The Straits Times on Wednesday.
