This is what I found on WOMANSDAY.COM: Probiotics. Everyone is saying you need them, and guess what? They’re right.

Simply put, probiotics are live microorganisms that live in your gut, reports the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).

This is the same imaging process used by NASA’s Curiosity rover mission, in which many overlapping pictures are taken and later stitched together. Visible in the selfie are the lander’s solar panel and its entire deck, including its science instruments. Say Cheese! @NASAInSight‘s first #selfie on Mars reveals the lander’s solar panels and deck!

Looks like something out of a Willy Wonka movie.  As a kid, you must love this.

About 10 sq m (108 sq ft) was cleared by 25 firefighters using shovels, hot water and blowtorches. Information provided by...
