Usually, once you’ve signed on the dotted line and driven away from the dealership, you’re stuck with the options you chose during the purchase process. Mercedes wants to change that, for some options at least.Mercedes-Benz will use its Mercedes Me connected-car platform to offer specific options as after-the-fact purchases. Available on the A-Class, B-Class and GLE-Class — the vehicles rocking the flashy new MBUX infotainment system — buyers will be able to use Mercedes Me to purchase digital radio, smartphone integration and navigation options after purchasing the car.It’s a relatively straightforward process. If a car is connected with Mercedes Me and has a functional data connection, owners can go to the Mercedes Me store and purchase the aforementioned options with just a few clicks. Mercedes-Benz says this can be useful when an owner forgets to check specific options boxes at the dealer, or it could be beneficial to second owners who want more tech than the first owner did.Enlarge ImageWhile software-based upgrades are easily done through Mercedes Me, it’s not like you will be able to add all-wheel drive or anything like that, so make sure your spec is as close to perfect as possible before purchasing a car. Mercedes-Benz There’s also another huge benefit for Europeans in there, too. Digital radio will become mandatory for new vehicles in the EU starting in 2020, and outfitting an older car with that tech is likely to boost its resale value slightly. So, while owners may not want it now, it could become useful later.Not every buyer specs their vehicle from scratch and waits for the factory to build it. Dealerships maintain a stock of prêt-à-porter vehicles, optioned in a way that buyers will hopefully appreciate. If every car on the lot lacks navigation, but a buyer doesn’t want to wait for a car to be built at the factory, Mercedes Me can get around that problem.Mercedes’ MBUX infotainment system has proven mighty impressive in our tests. In our recent review of the A-Class Sedan, we found it to be responsive and full of features, but everything’s laid out in a way that doesn’t make it feel overwhelming. Its “Hey, Mercedes” digital assistant is a nice touch that can take natural-language commands and translate them to actions like adjusting the climate control or turning on the heated seats.
Aug 30 • iRobot Roomba S9 Plus vs. Neato Botvac D7 Connected At the very least, the Instant Vortex still includes enough modes to be versatile. The $119 price is also reasonable, though our favorite Simple Chef model from a year ago is just $60 on Amazon right now. Part of our hesitation with air fryers was how poorly they stacked up to an actual Instant Pot. It’ll be interesting to see if the makers of the popular gadget can do better where the others faltered. null Chris Monroe/CNET The newest kitchen gadget from the makers of the Instant Pot has an impressive seven cooking modes designed to serve up meals like a rotisserie chicken, as well as snacks like mozzarella sticks and french fries. The Instant Vortex Plus is an air fryer with a sizable capacity. In addition to the usual options, the Vortex includes extra presets like a dehydrate option for homemade jerky.The Instant Vortex Plus launched on Monday at Walmart. You can buy it now for $119. According to Instant Brands, the Vortex will roll out to other major retailers within the next couple of weeks. It holds 10 quarts of food. While it’s primarily an air fryer, six other cooking presets mean it can roast, broil, bake, reheat and dehydrate, plus there’s an option to rotate the included rotisserie spit. “We’re really excited to deliver a new product that gives our consumers the amazing deep fried taste without compromise,” said Katie Whiting, Instant Brands Marketing Director in a statement emailed to CNET. “They can create healthier versions of their favorite dishes and do so in a fast, easy and convenient way.”The Instant Pot pressure cooker gained popularity thanks to its versatility. The different cooking modes let you whip up a wide variety of delicious meals. When we tested air fryers last year, we found them to be more limited. They’re functionally just convection ovens shrunk down for your countertop, but the more focused heat of the smaller body supposedly makes them perfect for snack foods. We did have some tasty pizza rolls during testing, but still found it hard to get excited about any model.

The court, while granting their plea, said the “women are here to stay” and since they “work shoulder-to-shoulder” with their male counterparts, it would “frown upon any endeavour to restrain the progress of women”. Parrikar said that in 2008, the Navy had opened its doors in Short Service Commission for granting permanent commission to women along with men.He said that permanent commission for SSC was not an option for men also prior to 2008. “There is no gender bias. In 2008, the Navy granted SSC to be changed to permanent commission to women in three streams – education, law and naval constructions.

Looking to shed those extra kilos through dieting? You may be at a loss, as human bodies tend to compensate by sparing energy, limiting the number of calories that we burn and hence affect our weight loss regimen, researchers say. According to the study, a group of neurons – ‘agouti-related neuropeptide’ (AGRP) – in a brain region hypothalamus contributes to the caloric thermostat that regulates our weight, regulating how many calories we burn. When activated, these neurons make us hungry and drive us to eat, but when there is no food available, they tend to compensate for the reduction in calories. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Our findings suggest that AGRP in the brain coordinate appetite and energy expenditure, and can turn a switch on and off to burn or spare calories depending on what’s available in the environment,” said Clemence Blouet from the University of Cambridge in Britain. “When we eat less, our body compensates and burns fewer calories, which makes losing weight harder,” Blouet added. However, as soon as food becomes available and we start eating, the action of the AGRP neurons is interrupted and our energy expenditure goes back up again to normal levels.In the study, published in the journal eLife, the researchers identified a new mechanism through which the body adapts to low caloric intake and limits weight loss in mice. Using a genetic trick to switch the AGRP neurons ‘on’ and ‘off,’ they rapidly and reversibly manipulated the neurons’ activity in mice, a finding that could help in the design of improved therapies to help reduce overeating and obesity.
