What the Yuck: Man, he smells good...

What the Yuck: Man, he smells good...

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: Is it true if a guy smells good to you that means you're biologically compatible?

Like most things involving men and women, it's complicated!

There have been several studies that showed that people are attracted to the smell of members of the opposite sex who are somewhat genetically dissimilar in terms of their immune-system genes, and are turned off by the odor of those with very similar immune-system genes.

Being genetically unlike in this way has a biological advantage for the kids because theoretically they'll have both sets of genes and therefore a more diverse immune system.

But this theory has yet to be proven, and there are so many other factors that go into compatibility, I wouldn't put too much stock in this as a way to find your perfect match.

    Добрый день друзья! Есть такой интересный сайт для заказа бурения скважин на воду. Бурение скважин в Минске – полный комплекс качественных и разумных по цене услуг. Мы бурим любые виды скважин.У нас доступная ценовая политика, рассрочка на услуги и оборудование.Заказывайте скважину для воды – получите доступ к экологически чистой природной воде по самым выгодным в Минске ценам! Самое основное преимущество состоит в том, что вокруг скважинного фильтра делается обсыпка специальным фильтрующим песком. Это сводит к минимуму возможность заиливания скважины, значительно увеличивает приток поступаемой воды и продлевает срок ее службы до 50 лет! Обсадная труба, используемая при роторном бурении, имеет большую толщину стенки, что позволяет ей выдерживать давление грунтов даже на глубине в 150м. Данный вид бурения гарантирует вам 100% результат. Ведь большим минусом шнекового бурения является то, что в случае отсутствия верхней воды на участке, вам придется покрыть расходы подрядчика и оплатить так называемую «разведку» (в среднем, 10 у.е. за каждый пройденный метр). В результате просто потеряете деньги и все равно обратитесь к услугам ротора.
    От всей души Вам всех благ!

    Сегодня поговорим о бирже Nominex, которая появилась совсем недавно, но имеет огромные перспективы. За столь короткий период времени она превратилась в биржу со всеми характеристиками: от локального токена, который вырос на 2600% за короткий период времени, до бинарной рекомендательной программы с неограниченным количеством уровней. И самое главное, Binance Smart Chain внедрила прибыльный план для фарминга, где доходность уже составляет 3000%. Вот что нужно знать о торговле криптовалютой новичку DeFi на первом этапе знакомства.

    Подробнее обо всем в деталях можно прочитать в статье https://finans-info.ru/crypto/obzor-kriptobirzhi-nominex-i-ee-vozmozhnosti-farming-stejking/

    Как известно, прямые инвестиции — наиболее гибкий вид финансирования развития бизнеса, доступный тогда, когда остальные источники не могут быть использованы. Сотрудничество фонда с компаниями может строиться различным путем: фонды могут выступать как отстраненными финансовыми инвесторами, так и участниками бизнеса, активно вмешиваясь в операционную деятельность. Private equity фонды, как правило, выходят из проектов в течение лет, получая в этот период доходность на уровне % годовых. По оценке экспертов, прямые инвестиции — сравнительно дорогой вид инвестиций, которые накладывают дополнительные обязательства на компанию. Например, фонды снижают риски, подписывая соглашения, противостоящие размыванию капитала, получают право на информацию, право первого выхода из проекта, вето на крупные транзакции.
