Food

Food is what brings us together, but each country has a unique set of customs for how to act before, during and after a meal

Whether you’re planning an international trip or you’re headed to a local cultural experience, it’s important to learn about the eating habits of the folks you’ll be dining with. What might seem silly to you could be incredibly important to someone else, so don’t judge.

LAS VEGAS — Here’s a scary thought: The air we breathe indoors can be five times as polluted as outside air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Since most of us spend a considerable time indoors, we’re inhaling a lot of what we shouldn’t be.

Smart air purifiers, like those from Honeywell and Mi Air, sync up with apps. But a new air purifier called the Airmega, from Korean company and designed by Yves Behar, is taking air tracking a step further with built-in sensors that optimize the filtration process, based on what’s happening to the air in your home.
