, 5 intriguing health benefits of Tangerines, Frederick Nuetei

Like oranges, tangerines are orange in color — although some varieties may have shades of green or red. However, they’re a bit smaller and less round and are easier to peel by hand. They also have a sweeter taste.

Both the flesh and peel are highly nutritious. You can enjoy tangerines as a snack on the go, blend them into a refreshing juice or smoothie, or use them to make a sweet jam or salad dressing.

Below are some health benefits of tangerines to the human body.

  • Beneficial for pregnant women

Tangerine is a great fruit to be consumed by a pregnant woman has it a good source of vitamin B like folate. A deficiency of folic acid in pregnant women can lead to the birth of underweight infants. Folate is needed for amino acid metabolism, the formation of red and white blood cells, cell growth and cell division.

  • Maintain blood pressure

This fruit is a rich source of potassium. Potassium helps the body send nerve signals, regulate fluid, regulate muscle contractions and helps to maintain proper blood pressure.

  • Controls cholesterol absorption

Tangerine is a rich source of fibres that helps to control the absorption of cholesterol which in turn cuts the probability of been obese.

  • High in antioxidants

Antioxidants protect your body by neutralizing the damaging effects of oxidative stress, which is caused by the accumulation of free radicals. These harmful molecules are involved in the development of chronic conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. 

Tangerines — including their peels — are rich sources of antioxidants such as vitamin C and beta-cryptoxanthin and flavonoids such as naringin, hesperidin, tangeretin, and nobiletin. Vitamin C’s antioxidant capacity is known for its beneficial effects on skin and heart health, as well as for its cancer-fighting properties. 

  • Immunity boosters

Vitamin C in tangerines may help protect your immune system from viruses and bacteria by acting upon T cells, a type of white blood cells that protect your body.

Research shows that the vitamin influences T cells’ development and function and blocks pathways that lead to their death. Therefore, it helps you maintain a healthy level of these cells to fight off infections.

Apple revealed new MacBook Pros, and nearly everything about them has changed.

Most importantly, the MacBook Pro laptops come with Apple’s new chips. That’s right, its chips, plural, because Apple launched two new chips: The powerful M1 Pro, and the even more powerful M1 Max.

The M1 Pro has either six or eight high-performance cores and two efficiency cores, giving it 70 percent better performance compared to last year’s M1. It also has a 14-core or 16-core GPU, which Apple claims gives it two times better graphics performance compared to the M1. The M1 Pro supports a maximum 32GB of RAM memory.

Then there’s the M1 Max, which has more memory bandwidth, and 32 GPU cores, giving it 4x better graphics performance than the M1. It supports a maximum of 64GB of RAM memory.

But this time, the MacBook Pro hasn’t only been upgraded on the inside. The devices come in new sizes — 14.2 and 16.2 inches — and have a new keyboard that has physical function keys instead of the Touch Bar.

The display has also been upgraded, and the rumors were true: The new MacBook Pro laptops have an iPhone-like notch on top, which hosts the new 1080p FaceTime camera. This is because the bezels on the displays have shrunk to just 3.5mm, which means that those display sizes were made possible in nearly the same-sized enclosure as on the previous models.

The 16.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,456 x 2,234 pixels, for a total of 7.7 million pixels, while the 14.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,024 x 1,964 pixels for a total of 5.9 million pixels. Both displays have the same mini-LED tech seen in the iPad Pro, and support an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz.

As expected, the new MacBooks now have a ton of ports: On one side, you get HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, and an SD card reader. On the other, there’s a headphone jack, two more Thunderbolt ports, and yes, the MagSafe connector has returned.

Speakers and microphones have also been upgraded, and the new MacBooks are far more versatile when it comes to connecting additional displays; with the M1 Pro chip, you can connect two additional XDR displays, and with the M1 Max chip, you can connect up to three XDR displays and an additional 4K TV.

As for battery life, Apple claims the smaller model can handle up to 17 hours of video playback and up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing. The larger model can do up to 21 hours of video playback, and up to 14 hours of wireless web browsing.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999, though the price goes up to $2,899 when configured with the M1 Max chip and 32GB of RAM. The larger, 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,499 when configured with the M1 Pro chip, and it starts at a whopping $3,499 when configured with the M1 Max chip.

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone

Published

, How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone, Frederick Nuetei

AirDrop lets users wirelessly send files between Apple devices. Because it uses Bluetooth technology, it relies on devices being in close physical proximity to each other. It’s a handy way to quickly share files, photos, etc. without the need to draft an email or message. Plus, AirDrop files are encrypted, so it’s also secure.

Make sure you follow these steps beforehand so that you’re good to go:

  • Turn on Bluetooth and WiFi. You do not need to be connected to a WiFi network but the WiFi setting does need to be on. Also, turn off your hotspot if it’s on. AirDrop won’t work otherwise. 
  • Make sure that the devices are within range of each other — no more than about 30 feet apart.
  • Check the AirDrop sharing settings of the device that is receiving the file. The settings are “Receiving Off,” “Contacts Only,” or “Everyone.” If you choose to only receive files from contacts, make sure that the owner of the device sending the file is saved as a contact. You can adjust these settings in your Control Center or by going to “Settings” > “General” > “AirDrop.”

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac

Open the file that you want to AirDrop, then tap the share icon, which is the square with the upwards-facing arrow.

That will show you all of the ways you can share a file. Tap the AirDrop icon, which is the concentric circles with a triangle cut out at the bottom.

From there, select the user/device that you’d like to send it to. Tapping the user/device automatically starts the AirDrop process. If no devices are showing up, double-check that all of your settings are correct.

To accept an AirDrop on your Mac, a preview window will pop up on your device asking you to accept or decline the transfer. If you accept the AirDrop, it will show up in the same app it was sent from (a photo sent via AirDrop will show up in your photos app.)

How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone

There are a few different ways you can share a file via AirDrop on a Mac.

1. From Finder

Locate the file you want to share. Instead of opening it, control-click/right-click on the file. In the dropdown, go to “Share” then choose AirDrop from the menu.

2. From the open file

If the file that you want to share is already open, you can AirDrop from the toolbar of the open application. Find “Share” then AirDrop from the pop-out menu. The “Share” button will usually be under “File,” but might be its own section in the Toolbar or in another section, depending on the app.

3. Drag and drop

Last but not least, in the “Finder” window, you can drag and drop the file into AirDrop. Click and hold down on the file and drag it into the AirDrop section located under “Favorites.” Still holding down on the file, drag and drop it over the receiving device.
