The beginning of pregnancy can be daunting enough without the myths around miscarriage adding to feelings of uncertainty and anxiety. If you’ve suffered a miscarriage, you are not alone. Between 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage (or around 1 million a year in the U.S.). But that doesn’t make it any less devastating, especially if it happens more than once. Common advice is that women should wait until the end of the first trimester before announcing a pregnancy so this can add to the stigma, says Dr. Zev Williams, an obstetrician at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Montefiore Health System in New York. And because it is medically common, the impact of miscarriage is often underestimated. “Miscarriage is a traditionally taboo subject that is rarely discussed publicly,” he says. The good news is that most women (approximately 85%) who miscarry will go on to have a healthy pregnancy later, according to the American Pregnancy Association (opens in new … [Read more...] about 6 myths about miscarriage

If you’re trying to patch up spotty Wi-Fi coverage, you might have considered using not just one but multiple Wi-Fi extenders to fix things. Here’s what you need to know. You Can Use Multiple Extenders (But You Shouldn’t) Wi-Fi extenders offer some relief when you find your home Wi-Fi lacking, but they’re not without shortcomings . While a single extender deployed so you can watch YouTube videos on your back porch without eating up all your mobile data is a fine and reasonable use for a Wi-Fi extender, increasing the number of extenders just creates headaches. All the disadvantages of a Wi-Fi extender, such as latency, congestion, and the complexity of multiple concurrent networks in the same airspace, are effectively multiplied by using more than one extender at a time. With that in mind, we can’t recommend using multiple extenders as it’s like applying multiple bandages to the same problem. If your Wi-Fi coverage is cruddy enough that you’re considering using multiple … [Read more...] about How Many Wi-Fi Extenders Can I Use?

The Walt Disney Co. is seeing trouble on the horizon for its Disney+ streaming service, causing the studio to substantially lower the number of subscribers it expects to have by 2024. In its earnings announcement Wednesday, the company lowered its Disney+ guidance to 215 million to 245 million subscribers by 2024, down from 230 million to 260 million. The decision comes as the current economic recession weighs on consumers, with the soaring prices of food and energy forcing families to curtail spending on non-necessities. In addition, Disney announced steep price hikes on Disney+ and Hulu, with the price of a Disney+ subscription jumping nearly 40 percent. The price increases are likely to cause a significant chunk of customers to cancel their subscriptions — a phenomenon that Netflix experienced the last time it raised prices. Disney also lost its streaming rights for the Indian Premier League — a professional cricket association — which is expected to negatively impact … [Read more...] about Disney Braces for Streaming Trouble Ahead: Lowers Target for Disney+ Subscribers
