Chevrolet Equinox

El Chevrolet Equinox es el SUV compacto de Chevrolet, situado por encima del Trailblazer y Trax pero por debajo del Blazer, Traverse,Tahoe, y Suburban. Chevy introdujo el actual, Chevrolet Equinox de tercera generación para el año modelo 2018.

 Pero si usted está en el mercado para uno, le recomendamos mantenerse a la espera para la actualización de medio ciclo programado para 2022.

El Chevrolet Equinox compite en el segmento cada vez más popular y lleno de crossovers compactos contra coches como el Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester y Mazda CX-5.

Chevrolet Equinox,  Algunos Pros y Contras

Aunque el Chevrolet Equinox ofrece ciertas fortalezas, el Chevrolet no puede impresionar como un paquete. Su sistema de info entretenimiento es fácil de usar, y el espacio interior es generoso. El espacio para las piernas traseras y el volumen de carga son impresionantes.

 Pero echar un vistazo más de cerca al interior revela algunos defectos. Construir senderos de calidad de la competencia; incluso los adornos de especificaciones superiores cuentan con más plástico duro que nuestros SUV compactos favoritos.

El rendimiento en carretera también es decepcionante. El Chevrolet Equinox  empuja y ara a través de las curvas y la calidad de conducción no es impresionante, especialmente en los bordes más altos con ruedas más grandes.

Nos gustó la oferta contundente 2.0T, pero para 2021, los compradores se dejan hacer con la oferta de 1.5 litros que, mientras que lo suficientemente torcillo, se confunde con una transmisión que siempre alcanza su marcha más alta. 


El Chevrolet Equinox  colocado muerto en último lugar en nuestra comparación de ocho vehículos de cruces compactos, y muchos de sus pares ofrecen paquetes más convincentes.

Lo hemos descrito como un SUV que se siente como si se debe alquilar, no propiedad. Aquí está la esperanza de que los cambios con los cambios del Chevrolet Equinox  2022 .

Con la salida del turbo-cuatro de 2.0 litros de 252 hp para 2021, la única opción de motor restante del Chevrolet Equinox  es una más pequeña de 1.5 litros turboalimentada de cuatro cilindros que desarrolla 170 CV y 203 lb-pie de torque. (Nos gustó el molino más potente,más potente, pero evidentemente el 90 por ciento de los compradores optaron por el motor base .)

 El 1.5T todavía funciona con un automático de seis velocidades y en nuestras pruebas, ese combo es bueno para 0-60 en 8.7 segundos. La economía de combustible mide 26/31 mpg ciudad/carretera con FWD estándar o 25/30 mpg si usted va para AWD.

Lo llamaríamos seguro considerar el Chevrolet Equinox  un vehículo seguro. Por su fuerte rendimiento en las pruebasde seguridad IIHS, el ajuste LT con faros de proyector HID es una top Safety Pick 2020.

Otros adornos tienen relación con una clasificación de faros marginal, pero todavía cuentan con excelentes puntuaciones de prevención de choque y choque frontal.

 El Chevrolet Equinox  también obtiene una calificación de seguridad general de cinco estrellas de la NHTSA, con puntuaciones de cinco estrellas frontal y de choque lateral y una calificación de rollover de cuatro estrellas.

La capacidad de carga en el Chevrolet Equinox  mide 29,9 pies cúbicos detrás de los asientos traseros y 63,9 pies cúbicos con los asientos plegados. Tiene capacidad para cinco personas con un impresionante espacio para las piernas de 40,9 y 39,9 pulgadas en la primera y segunda fila.

Los modelos Chevrolet Equinox  de nivel básico funcionan con un sistema de info-entretenimiento de pantalla táctil de 7,0 pulgadas con Apple CarPlay y Android Auto, aunque una pantalla táctil de 8,0 pulgadas está disponible opcionalmente en modelos base y es estándar en acabados más altos.

El audio de seis altavoces es estándar, y un sistema premium Bose de siete altavoces se puede tener con el paquete Infotainment II .

El Chevrolet Equinox  tiene mucho espacio para los pasajeros, pero no lo suficiente para la carga. La conducción y el manejo están bien, pero utiliza demasiado combustible.

 El sistema de infoentretenimiento es intuitivo, pero el resto del interior es soso..

Tea Bags Help yours eyes

Tea bags help deal with problems such as dark circles, eye bags, but also with conditions such as conjunctivitis. However, we want to share a final tip intended to treat dark circles and eye bags. It is a question of inserting the tea bags into the fridge and using them cold.

Cold stimulates circulation and encourages fluids in the eye contour area to drain. That’s why we can use the tea bags mentioned above. We just have to leave it in the fridge for a few minutes and put it over our eyes for ten minutes.

Do you usually have eye problems? Do you have bags and dark circles often? We hope these remedies can help you, but we remind you to be very careful with the chamomile infusion.

In all the tea bags check that they are properly closed so that nothing can enter your eyes. We encourage you to try these remedies. Will they work for you?

Greent é and acne treatment

Green tea is a natural astringent that offers interesting results in the treatment of acne. Do you know how it’s used? Here we tell you in detail.

Acne is not a  serious health problem in most cases, at least from an organic point of view. From a psychological point of view, however, it does often cause significant effects, as it can affect appearance and self-esteem. Can green tea help with acne?

Acne usually responds well to home treatments, including green tea. Only in rare times does it become resistant and in such cases is the specialized intervention of a dermatologist necessary. This problem mainly affects teens, but can occur at any age.

In general, there is considered to be a serious concomitant problem if acne suddenly appears in an older adult. In these cases, it is advisable to see a dermatologist or our trusted doctor.

Let’s get to know acne

Woman with acne problems

Acne is one of the most common skin diseases. It originates when pores become clogged with debris and dead cells.

Acne is a skin disorder that affects hair follicles and sebaceous glands, according to the Mayo Clinic. The skin has small holes called pores. These are internally connected to the sebaceous glands, using a duct called a follicle.

The sebaceous glands produce a fatty substance called sebum. Sebum carries dead skin cells to the surface through the follicles. Hair also grows through such follicles. Sometimes dead cells, sebum and hair come together and plug the pore.

The confluence of dead cells, sebum and hair causes bacteria to clump together at one point. This causes swelling. The moment the cap begins to clog, a grain or shin is formed. Acne appears on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders.

Tips for your MAKEUP

The concept of makeup mentions the act and the result of makeup or makeup: that is, to appeal cosmetic products to change the appearance or beautify the face or other part of the body. Makeup is also called the substance that is used for this purpose.

Makeup is used by humans to hide imperfections or highlight certain traits. It is common for it to be applied to the eyelids, lips and cheeks, among other places.

Many people, especially women, wear makeup before attending social gatherings. With this practice, known as social makeup, the intention is to look your best.

Social makeup is usually part of a set of practices that most people of a generation carry out, that is, trends or fashions. The power of these movements is such that  just as one day they impose the use of makeup, the next they can convince the population that it is no longer necessary.

It is important to note that the use of makeup can transform a face considerably; If we add to this that there are many people who do not leave their house without applying it, we can conclude that we almost never see the true aspect of our co-workers, neighbors or even family members.

One of the goals of those who use this type of product is to disguise certain imperfections or scars. In the first group are birthmarks, skin spots and moles; the second encompasses all those consequences left by acne, as well as various accidents that damage the skin directly.

While no one has a perfect body, most people wear a face that we might describe as “normal”: it does not exhibit significant defects and their skin has an acceptable texture. This does not mean that they settle for what nature gave them, but do not live traumatized by it. On the other hand, people who have suffered severe cases of acne or an accident that have left them with significant scars, especially on their faces, often have many problems adapting to society as they feel a deep shame when others look at them.

In these cases, makeup has a practically therapeutic function, it becomes an invaluable resource to leave the house. Taking up the above, a large part of the population takes on makeup before meeting other people, although they don’t really need it to cover defects but simply for fashion-related issues; those who feel humiliated by their physical appearance, on the other hand, have a much heavier reality, as they generate a dependence on cosmetic products.

Gadgets for 2020

If you don’t know it’s a gadget and why everyone doesn’t talk about the latest gadgets of the year. Here I explain in a simple way that we refer to when we use this technological term  increasingly  mas  used.

We define gadget to a new or very recent product and/or technological device on the market that usually incorporates new technologies or discoveries in the world of technology,  are usually CAROS devices and have specific functions that make your life  easier  or even improve the functioning of another device making it have a new feature or special function.

Features of a Gadget

They have a specific purpose or function

They are small in size (not  always )

New and very practical

Its prices are high on launch due to the new technology incorporated by these devices.

Examples of the most common gadgets today are Smartwatch,  Health or Training Bands, Cellular Support and at the same Time Wireless Chargers, Information Transmission Rings, 3d Printers, Smart Speakers like  Alexa..

FACT : When a gadget becomes a product widely used by many people such as cell phones or mp3 players (at the time they were or were called gadgets), they are no longer called gadgets. Since they no longer comply with the features mentioned above that every gadget must  have.

We must also differentiate a gadget from a widget,  when we refer to this last  term  “widget” we refer to a small program or application (micro apps) that run on devices whether these cell phones, smartwatch or others, aiming to facilitate or access new functions even simplify tasks that you want to perform. For example, you could download a widget that every morning when you wake up sends you a message with today’s temperature informing you if it will rain or the day will be  sunny. Another widget might help you remember what exercise you should do today in the gym to meet your  goals.

iPhone X Fold

And I couldn’t wait another minute to get a sell from an iPhone X Fold. A render is a render and therefore stylizes, improves and refines the device much more and in this case we see the typical notch  of the iPhone, a single hole in the screen for the camera once we open it, a much thinner frames and a screen with better view than that of the newly presented Samsung Galaxy  Fold..

First of all  we must not forget that this is still a render so it is not something that Apple has prepared even though a few hours ago a patent was also published that speaks of folding devices.

In any case  the render can be said that it is curious and arrives just in time hours after seeing the so-called “prototype” released by Samsung.

I don’t get a price for an Apple folding device, but I imagine if the Samsung Galaxy Fold  was launched at a price of about $2,000 sale to the public the Apple model could pass that figure far.

Well this is also not something that we can confirm since there is no such device that could be interesting for a type of user who does not have an iPad and wants to have an iPhone with a much larger screen at certain times of the day.

The truth is that there is quite a bit of controversy with the launch of the Galaxy Fold,would you like Apple to launch its iPhone  Fold?

One was released by the ex-instructions involved in George Floyd’s death after $1 million bail

Thomas Lane was one of four agents who arrested George Floyd on May 25 for allegedly using a fake $20 bill.

Thomas Lane, one of four expolicys in the city of Minneapolis,  Minnesota, USA, involved in George Floyd’s death, was left on Wednesday on bail from  HennepinCountyPrison, WCCO reported, citing jail records.

The documents state that Lane was released at 16:08 on Wednesday. According to the average, the United States Justice had set him a $1 million bond.

Earl Gray, Lane’s lawyer, insisted during the first hearing of the case that the indictment against his client was “weak”, as during Floyd’s arrest his client was concerned about his health and even attempted to perform cprling in the ambulance.

Thomas Lane was one of four agents—with Derek Chauvin, Tou  Thao,  and J. Alexander  Kueng—whoon May 25 responded to the incident in  Minneapolis that led to the arrest of George Floyd.

During the arrest, Chauvin pressed the African-American’s neck with his knee for more than eight minutes, unaware that the detainee told him he could not breathe. Floyd died shortly thereafter in hospital and Chauvin was arrested on Friday, May 29. Currently the expolicy faces three counts in total, including second-degree murder.

Lane, like Thao  and  Kueng,was fired from the  Minneapolis Police and is accused of assisting and inciting involuntary murder and second-degree involuntary manslaughter.

Clinical trials of coronavirus vaccines in Russia start

Researchers from several entities in the country are working on the creation of the covid-19 vaccine, including the Véktor Center for Virology and Biotechnologies and the Gamaleya Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology. .

Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denís Mánturovsaid on Wednesday in the State Duma, the Russian Lower House, that clinical trials of vaccines against the new coronavirus have already begun in the country.

“As far as the issue of the vaccine that is of interest to all, I can say that this month our pharmacists have started clinical trials together with the organizations of the Ministry of Health and the Russian Federal Service for the Supervision of Consumer Protection and Welfare(Rospotrebnadzor),”said  Mánturov,quoted by Interfax, promising that the authorities will be reporting on the process.

At the moment, different teams of scientists are trying to develop a vaccine against the new coronavirus in Russia. One of them, the GamaleyaInstitute of Epidemiology andMicrobiology, expressed hope of recording the vaccine as early as August, while researchers at the  Véktor Center for Virology and Biotechnologies plan to register their SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in September.

Unlike drugs, whose efficacy is estimated for their effects on people who already have a certain disease, experimental vaccines are given to healthy people who are then exposed to the harmful microorganism. After months or years of observation, scientists may consider their invention to be successful if those people did not catch it after the injection.

Experimental vaccines are usually tested in thousands of people living in contagion zones, although it is also common for these studies to involve a few dozen volunteers who are monitored by doctors in case they develop symptoms of the disease after being infected.

In this way, researchers can decide whether it is worth continuing with the development of the tested vaccine or whether it is better to seek another remedy.

What should I eat if I have hyperthyroidism?

Much has been discussed about the influence of food on the control of hyperthyroidism. In fact, in recent years a number of clinical research work has been carried out aimed at studying the influence of food as a complement to the medical treatment of hyperthyroidism. Thus, the diet for hyperthyroidism has been shown to be effective in improving the course of the disease and, of course, the quality of life of patients. Let’s see what the conclusions are: What should I eat if I have hyperthyroidism? What diet should I follow? Is there any food I should avoid?

What is hyperthyroidism and what are its causes?

To begin with, and as we explained above, hyperthyroidism is a disorder of the thyroid gland that affects 0.or2% of the population. It encompasses a wide range of diseases, such as various Multinodular Bocios, toxic Thyroid adenomas or Graves-Basedow disease.

Hyperthyroidism diet

Regardless of the cause of hyperthyroidism, maintaining a balanced diet is important. For this reason, it is essential to consult with your doctor and have a multidisciplinary team like ours, which has expert dietitians-nutritionists.

According to studies, the main characteristic of a diet for hyperthyroidism is related to limiting the nutrients that help produce thyroid hormone (iodine) and boost those antioxidants, those that help regenerate healthy cells (Selenium) .

If you have hyperthyroidism you should follow a diet rich in Selenium. Selenium is a micro-mineral  found in red meats, fish, vegetables, pine nuts, eggs, mushrooms, and wheat among others. The relationship between hyperthyroidism and Selenium  a  has been the result of numerous studies in recent years. In them, Selenium has been shown to play an important role in the immune-endocrine balance.  Especially,thanks to its great antioxidant activity at the cellular level, function that it shares with vitamin E. The thyroid gland has a high concentration in Selenium. Which suggests it could help eliminate oxygen-free radicals  oxigeno  generated during hormone production. With this, it seems that it could help the regeneration of healthy cells.

Another possible effect of a diet rich in Selenium, although not scientifically proven, would be the improvement of some symptoms of hyperthyroidism; graves’ orbitopathy  and some cardio-vascular effects. Thus, a diet for hyperthyroidism should contain foods rich in Selenium such as: red meat, fish, vegetables, pine nuts, eggs, mushrooms or wheat.

“If you have hyperthyroidism you should eat foods rich in Selenium. According to various studies, this micro-mineral  has an important role in the immune-endocrine balance”

If you have hyperthyroidism you should follow a diet low in Iodine. This claim is based on the outcome of several studies demonstrating a reduction in hormone production (T4) by the thyroid gland in those hyperthyroid patients who made a restriction of iodine intake. So, if you have hyperthyroidism you should not eat: salt, grain, cereal, some kind of bread, fish, seafood, chicken, milk and other dairy products.  That is, the main sources of Iodine. I take into account that it is essential to take a balanced diet, the restriction should be partial and never complete. That is, avoid its  exclusion  but rationalizing consumption.

“If you have hyperthyroidism you should NOT eat foods rich in Iodine. According to various studies, in the face of a restriction of the intake of this mineral, the hormone production of the thyroid gland is reduced”

Main features of a diet for hyperthyroidism

In view of the published results, we can say that the diet for hyperthyroidism should be: low in salt (especially iodized) and rich in Selenium. Tracking a diet with these characteristics is recommended as a supplement to medical treatment of hyperthyroidism. Since, it will help improve the course of the disease and the quality of life of patients.

The honey glycemic index

Honey is a food that is often used as a sweetener. However, some wonder if it is safe for people who are diabetic or with other metabolic disorders. What do you know about it?

Many people use honey as a natural sweetener or for its medicinal properties. But does it also raise blood glucose? Can diabetics take it? The glycemic index of honey can give us some answers and open up new questions.

The concept of glycemic index (GI) appeared about 30 years ago and is used to classify foods that contain carbohydrates, according to the rate at which they raise blood glucose.

From the values of each food, a table is created to be able to compare them. The food that serves as a reference is glucose which has a glycemic index of 100, and the rest are classified in a range ranging from 0 to 100.

Low glycemic index (below 55): much of dairy, fruits, vegetables, legumes and some varieties of pasta enter here.

Average glycemic index (between 55 and 69) :  rice, bread and some breakfast cereals.

High glycemic index (more than 70): in this group we find white bread, potatoes or pastries.

Honey is a food made up, above all, by carbohydrates (80%) and water.  Glucose and fructose are two of the most found. The ratio between one type of sugar and the other may be different depending on the variety of honey we are talking about.

Flower varieties are usually the most abundant in fructose and therefore have a lower GI.  The glycemic index of honey is around 61, although it can vary 3 points up or down.

As we have seen, the variety of honey and its glucose-fructose percentage is what can make this value decrease. Therefore, this index positions honey in the middle group foods.

The glypasmic honey index

Honey is a food that is made up of, above all, carbohydrates.

The glycemic index, diets and health.

Many nutrition experts and professionals have long advocated a diet based on the glycemic index of food. It should include those in the lower GI group and those belonging to the highest group should be eliminated or restricted.

These types of diets have been defended because it is foods with a lower GI that are digested and absorbed more slowly. Therefore, they cause lower or more proplong glucose spikes over time.

This would be beneficial, for example, for people with diabetes, as they have difficulty processing sugars effectively. In these cases, good blood glucose control would help slow the onset of disease-related complications, such as kidney damage, nerve damage or increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

In addition, there is scientific evidence linking diets to low glycemic foods with the following benefits:

Reduction of LDL cholesterol.

Weight loss.

Lower risk of any type of cancer(colorectal, breast, endometrium).

Reduces the risk of heart disease.

However, in the science of nutrition we look only at a nutrient (e.g.  glycemic index) is not usually a good strategy, because we forget to value food in its entirety by focusing only on one of its attributes. In the topic on glycemic index we can cite the following problems:

The glycemic index values of a food are different according to the studies consulted.

Not everyone responds the same way to all foods, as insulin sensitivity is changing in each individual.

We usually never eat isolated food. We usually mix them in the same meal and in this way the glycemic indices that appear by analyzing food in isolation are altered. For example, the presence of fats or proteins regulates glucose absorption and subsequent increase in blood.

Finally, if you only look at this indicator, to include or eliminate food, we stop taking into account other important aspects such as its nutritional density, a possible probiotic effect, or satiating capacity, for example.

Taking into account the glycemic index has its pros  and cons. It is often beneficial for diabetic patients.

Whatdoes the glycemic index of honey tell us?

For thousands of years, honey has been used as a food for its nutritional and therapeutic value. This is due to its nutritional composition, which includes antioxidants, phenols, organic acids and traces of vitamins and minerals.

Today, honey is used as a natural sweetener and for remedies associated with natural medicine. There is scientific evidence to suggest that a small amount of honey may have health benefits. Without going into many details we can summarize its properties in the following:

Antioxidant capacity.

Reduction of analytical indicators of inflammation.

Protection of cardiovascular health, improving blood cholesterol, reducing triglycerides and with a slight decrease in body fat.

Antibacterial effects that may be positive in cases of gastroenteritis or Helicobater  pylori.

However, thanks to these properties and the fact that it has an average glycemic index, we cannot use uncontrolled honey on a day-to-day basis.

Compared to refined sugar and some artificial sweeteners may be a better option, but we should not forget that excess added sugars also lead to long-term health problems. It is not recommended that they exceed 25-50 grams per day.

The honey glycemic index is not the only indicator of its benefits

The glycemic index is a measure to classify the response of blood glucose levels after taking carbohydrate-heavy foods. One of them is honey, basically composed of two types of sugars: glucose and fructose.

Honey has an average GI, which could be a better alternative to sweeten some of our favorite dishes or drinks. However, in addition to looking at this indicator, we must take into account the problems associated with a high intake of sugars in the diet.
