In this study, we investigated the anti-obesity effect and mechanism of an edible plant, Bidens pilosa, and its active constituent. We first assessed the long-term effect of B. pilosa on body composition, body weight, blood parameters in ICR mice. We observed that it significantly decreased fat content and increased protein content in ICR mice. Next, we verified the anti-obesity effect of B. pilosa in ob/ob mice. It effectively and dose-dependently reduced fat content, adipocyte size and/or body weight in mice. Moreover, mechanistic studies showed that B. pilosa inhibited the expression of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ (PPARγ), CCAAT/enhancer binding proteins (C/EBPs) and Egr2 in adipose tissue. Finally, we examined the effect of 2-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy-1-hydroxytrideca-5,...

The Makita AN924 framing nailer is an excellent tool with solid value. Although its 3-year warranty

The Makita AN924 framing nailer is an excellent tool with solid value. Although its 3-year warranty is a couple of years shy of its closest competitors, it otherwise keeps pace with the field’s top-performers. We used the new Makita AN924 Framing Nailer on several jobs over a period of several weeks including a complete home remodel. The work required the construction and modification of more than a few stud walls. Having used a Hitachi NR90AE nailer for over a decade, the Makita AN924 held its own as a powerful framer that includes all the bells and whistles. It also keeps its weight in check—and a light nailer makes the day go more smoothly. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERSgoogletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1389975325257-0′); }); Every feature of the AN924 is focused on efficiency. You get lots of power, aggressive spurs for control when toenailing, and a top-loading magazine that holds a lot of nails. The former model, the AN923 loaded from the rear. A selector switch near your thumb makes for easy switching in and out of bump-fire. You can find slightly lighter pneumatic nailers and heavier cordless framers, but Makita has put together an...

Buying tires is a big and costly deal, especially if you like to change all four tires at the same time. Being the bargain hunter I am (see my track record here), I set out with steely determination in my eyes to do my research and get the detailed price breakdown to find out who wins the price war when it comes to cost versus what you get. Anecdotal accounts of family and friends reveal two big-box stores with a strong reputation for low prices – Costco and Walmart. Before driving to the nearest Costco and Walmart for a price quote, I did research to narrow down and select the exact tire I wanted to avoid the chaos of juggling multiple factors. I called up my trusty dad who is a pro bargain hunter (especially when it comes to cars and home improvement), and found out that he recommends Michelin. But being a journalist, the cliché phrase, “If your mother tells you she loves you, check it out,” rings in my ears and I can’t help but factcheck my dad’s choice against an unbiased source. I turn to Consumer Report, a monthly product review magazine...

Maybe looks aren’t everything, but a new coat of paint can sure freshen a room up.

Maybe looks aren’t everything, but a new coat of paint can sure freshen a room up. The Yoshi franchise has been the subject of cute visual experimentation since the coloring-book aesthetic of the SNES’ Yoshi’s Island, but the little dino’s latest adventure for the Nintendo Switch might just be his most eye-pleasing yet. Sure, the platforming might feel a bit more cardboard than in some previous outings, but Yoshi’s Crafted World is nevertheless a joy to play from start to finish, if only to see what homemade delights developer Good-Feel has tucked around the next corner. A barely-there story sets the scene, as a group of plush Yoshi’s gather around some gemstones that grant the owner whatever wish they may desire. Whether or how they were ever going to be used by these adorable reptiles never gets answered, however, as the arrival of Baby Bowser and his bespectacled wizard goon, Kamek, results in an accident that scatters the precious stones far and wide across a diverse arts & crafts landscape that wouldn’t look out of place on Etsy. So, it’s up to one (or two in co-op) Yoshi to volunteer for the hero position and track these gems down so that life on their idyllic island c...
