Comcast’s new eye-controlled channel changer sounds like something from the future

Comcast Xfinity

The new eye-controlled channel changer that Comcast debuted today is a futuristic-sounding marvel that will certainly make life a little more enjoyable for people with physical disabilities who can now use merely their eyes to control their TVs. The just-announced Xfinity X1 eye control feature is a web-based remote control for tablets and computers that Comcast says pairs with an existing eye gaze system and gives viewers the ability to perform tasks like changing the channel, setting a recording, searching for a show and more, all with just a glance.

Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel has something to say about THAT episode

Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel paid a heartfelt tribute to the HBO series, as well as her co-stars, following a very dramatic episode on Sunday night, which also saw a Starbucks coffee cup make a surprise appearance. 

The 30-year-old star, who plays Missandei of Naath, starred in her final scenes for the medieval fantasy show, which aired on the weekend.

In the fourth episode of the eighth and final ever season, Missandei was killed by Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).

But Nathalie’s final goodbye had us all choked for more reasons than one; not only was her dramatic exit scene a tear-jerker, but so was her sweet Instagram post, in which she admitted her character has taught her a huge life lesson.

She posted a picture of her character on her Instagram account, which read: ‘It’s been one of my greatest joys playing Missandei of Naath… The quiet and kind translator. A brilliant woman who overcame so much suffering and found herself, her voice… and her one and only love.

‘She represented so much for me, personally, that I have no choice but to carry the things she has taught me into my life going forward.’

Nathalie went on to gush about Emilia Clarke – who plays Daenerys Targaryen – and hailed her ‘a source of light and laughter’. Aww!

She continued: ‘Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to play this part… this life changing part… there are too many to list… @emilia_clarke GIRL! I love you… SO much. I’ve loved playing your BFF for the past 7 years. Thank you for being such a wonderful person in my life and a source of light and laughter.

‘Playing Missandei and Grey Worm’s journey has been so special. I couldn’t have asked for a more generous and supportive co-star… Also… We’ve been out in these streets together boiiii negotiating so much but always having each other’s back. Thank you for all of it… you have been a dear friend at every point.

‘To the entire cast and crew… You will always hold a special place in my heart. The love and energy we shared will be hard to match. I feel like I hit the jackpot meeting and working with you all. I love you.’

Nathalie went on to thank fans for their support, before she concluded: ‘Missandei is sipping a rum on a beach somewhere in sky.’

Our hearts just broke a little.

This new study revealed something incredibly gross about beards

This new study revealed something incredibly gross about beards


This new study revealed something incredibly gross about beards

We’re all for people rocking their facial hair however they like (because you do you, guys). But a new study just revealed something very interesting about beards…and admittedly pretty gross, too. Apparently, there’s more bacteria in a man’s beard than on a dog’s fur. Yep.

Researchers at the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland studied samples from the beards of 18 men and the fur of 30 dogs, and their findings were published in European Radiology, a peer-reviewed journal, in February. They determined that even though most pups enjoy rolling around in the grass and mud, there’s a “significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from men’s beards” than in dog fur.

Though 23 of the 30 dogs had “high microbial counts” on their fur, all 18 of the men did in their beards, too. According to USA Today, the full study showed that disease-causing bacteria (like the kinds that cause urinary tract infections) were also found more frequently in beards than on our four-legged friends.

The researchers took their samples from the pups’ necks, an area which vets call “particularly unhygienic” due to canine skin infections, and found that “the beards of men harbor significantly more microbes than the neck fur of dogs and these microbes were significantly more pathogenic to humans.” Basically, men’s beards are harboring more grossness than our doggo’s fur.

Even though the sample size is admittedly small, we’ve gotta say: We’re a little skeeved out. Sorry, guys. (And maybe now’s the time to invest in some beard shampoo?)

Podcast: KHN’s ‘What The Health?’ Drug Prices Are Rising Again. Is Someone Going To Do Something About It?

Many drugmakers have announced price increases with the start of the new year. The new Congress wants to do something about that. And even though both Republicans and Democrats want to address the politically potent issue of drug prices, it is unclear what they might be able to agree on.

Battle lines are forming between the House and Senate on the matter of abortion. The House is led by abortion-rights supporters and, since the election, the Senate has become slightly more against abortion.

And even though the majority of the Department of Health and Human Services remains unaffected by the partial government shutdown, the lapse of funding for other agencies is having spillover effects on health programs.

This week’s panelists for KHN’s “What the Health?” are Julie Rovner of Kaiser Health News, Joanne Kenen of Politico, Margot Sanger-Katz of The New York Times and Alice Ollstein of Politico.

Among the takeaways from this week’s podcast:

  • The biggest conflict among Republicans and Democrats on the drug issue centers on the GOP’s reluctance to give the government a role in directly negotiating prices. Adding to the pressure is the clear indication that the issue will be front and center in the 2020 campaign.
  • Some states, such as California, are looking to find ways to bring down drug costs on their own. California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, has proposed that the state have direct negotiations with drugmakers. Such efforts could mean cutting off consumers’ access to some drugs, if manufacturers don’t agree to a price the state likes, and that is a painful choice for officials and patients.
  • When House committee assignments were released this week, women were appointed to lead many of the key panels that have a hand in health policy, including the chairman and top Republican on the Appropriations Committee and two Energy and Commerce subcommittees.
  • The House Democratic Caucus now has more liberal members and fewer conservatives, so the party’s efforts to roll back restrictions on abortion are likely to be more robust. That could also trigger some big battles with Republicans through the legislative session.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is putting a bill on the Senate floor that would make permanent the Hyde Amendment — which bars federal funding of abortions in nearly all circumstances. But it seems unlikely that bill could be passed by the Senate, where it needs 60 votes, and even some Republicans are believed to oppose it.

Plus, for extra credit, the panelists recommend their favorite health policy stories of the week they think you should read too:

Julie Rovner: Bloomberg News’ “This JPMorgan Health Conference Is So Packed Attendees Are Meeting in the Bathroom,” by Kristen V Brown

Joanne Kenen: The New York Times’ “The Strange Marketplace for Diabetes Test Strips,” by Ted Alcorn

The Golden Globes Red Carpet Flowed With Bows, All With Something To Say

Alison Brie stepped onto the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet in a powder blue Vera Wang gown with a velvet bow on her shoulder. The dramatic appliqué was almost as long as she was tall. It trailed behind the Glow star, requiring an entourage. Brie’s intrepid publicist stood guard like a Mother Bear, making sure no one stepped on it.

It could have been a bow to end all bows. Then came a barrage.

Dakota Fanning had not one, two, or three bows, but five lining the back of her Armani Privé dress. Sofia Carson tied a black satin one across the waist of her Giambattista Valli. Kaley Cuoco, Constance Wu, and Heidi Klum also belted their gowns.
