How to Prevent Eye Strain,the 20-20-20 rule and f.luux

The 20-20-20 rule is quite effective at reducing eye strain. Simply put, after every 20 minutes of looking at the screen, look at an object that is at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Following this rule has helped us

  • Open > click 20-20-20 > select your break schedule from the drop-down menu. You may go with 20-20-20 (recommended) or 60-5 (five-minute break every hour) or Custom (where you can choose the duration of each break and the interval between breaks).
  • Once your break schedule is selected, click the black button labelled "Request permission and test notification" > Allow (Chrome) or Show for this session (Firefox) > Start PYV. The website requires desktop notifications because that's how it reminds you to take a break. Desktop notifications are supported on Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
  •  Now a timer will appear, showing you the time till your next break. You may disable sound notifications by clicking the volume icon next to the timer. Once you see a notification, click it and then click Start break. Now your screen will turn dark for the duration of the break. You should look at a point at least 20 feet away. Alternatively, you may click Start Eyes Gymnastics on your screen and the app shows you some eye exercises (move eyes up and down, etc.) that you can quickly go through to reduce eye strain.

F.lux runs in the background and adjusts your monitor's display settings to reflect the time of the day. This might make your screen look strange, but you will get used to it soon enough. It runs in the system tray, so you can right-click the icon and disable it for an hour, or for a particular app if you are doing colour-sensitive work such as image editing on your monitor. If you're watching films, it has a movie mode that makes colours look better.
Cut Out The Blue Light, stimulate melatonin production to help you sleep According to the Vision Council, one of the largest groups of manufacturers and suppliers in the optical industry, blue light is one of the causes of digital eyestrain. To make your monitor eye-friendly, you can go into the settings and tweak the various options to reduce eye strain.

The possibility of quantum computing breaking encryption algorithms

The possibility of breaking encryption algorithms is a powerful motivating factor for many countries of the world. Thus, knowledge of the enemy's encryption systems could give a huge advantage in intelligence, while at the same time contributing to the conduct of new fundamental research in the field of physics, since modern experimental systems have at their disposal only less than 100 qubits.    To achieve the useful computing performance of a supercomputer, we probably need machines with hundreds of thousands of qubits. In order for the devices to function correctly, they must correct all minor random errors in the software. In a quantum computer, such errors arise due to imperfect elements of the circuit and the interaction of qubits with their environment. For these reasons, qubits can lose coherence in literally a split second. A quantum computer with 100 qubits can simultaneously represent 2100 solutions. For some tasks, this exponential parallelism can be used to create a h

Simple steps to protect your privacy.

  Step 1. Download DuckDuckGo on all your devices With just one download you'll get tracker blocking, private searching, increased encrypting, and privacy grading on all of your browsing. Our mobile app for iOS/Android (DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser) and browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari (DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials) has all of this in one seamless package. Privacy, simplified. Step 2. Update your software Your device operating systems get out-of-date over time, and old software can contain security bugs or settings that leak personal data. Set your devices (and the apps on them) them to update automatically. That way you'll always have the latest, safest versions. Step 3. Update your privacy settings Make sure your devices are using the best privacy settings. Here are step-by-step instructions for all the major device types. Especially make sure you adjust per-app location settings, so that your location history isn’t leaking where it shouldn’t. For extra bonus
