What Bubbles In Glass Of Beer?

When you pour a glass of beer, a frothy cascade of fizz rises to the top; as more and more tiny bubbles coalesce, they form a nose-tickling layer of foam.

At first, that frothy stream of carbonation seems endless. But just how many bubbles can emerge from a glass of beer before it goes flat?

Gérard Liger-Belair, a professor of chemical physics at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne in France, had previously explored this effervescent subject in Champagne, calculating that one flute produces about 1 million bubbles.

Recently, Liger-Belair peered into the depths of beer glasses and found that they produce twice as many bubbles as Champagne — with up to 2 million bubbles popping in a half-pint glass, according to a new study.

Beer is typically made of four ingredients — malted cereal grains, hops, yeast and water — which are then fermented. This process breaks down carbohydrates to produce alcohol, sugars and carbon dioxide (CO2).

When beer is bottled or canned, additional CO2 is added, creating pressure in the container. Once the seal on a can or bottle is broken, the liquid becomes supersaturated with CO2, which is then released as tiny bubbles.

Of Ladies And Foundation Makeup

Foundation is a form of face makeup. This product is used all over your face to create an even base—or foundation—for the rest of your makeup. Is foundation important for makeup? Yes! Just take a look at its name.

This product is meant to act as the groundwork for your makeup look. The right formula can help cover blemishes, correct your skin tone, blur imperfections, and create an overall smooth and even canvas. That said, there are many different types of foundation makeup available.

Foundation makeup is far from a one-size-fits-all deal. There are formulas available based on your preferred consistency, the amount of coverage you want, and the finish you like. Here’s a run-down.

When you go down the makeup aisle, there are five main foundation formulas you’ll likely notice. Here’s what to know.

1. Liquid foundation. One of the most popular options for foundation, liquid foundation, is just what it sounds like—foundation that has a liquid formula.

2. Cream foundation. This type of foundation has a creamier, thicker consistency. It’s also usually a great option for those with dry skin. 

3. Powder foundation. If you have oily skin, you may find yourself turning to a powder formula. While you can layer on the powder formula, they generally offer lighter coverage.

4. Serum foundation. A trendy foundation type, serum foundation, is a variation of your standard liquid foundation. Its formula contains a serum, making it a skin care and makeup hybrid.

5. Water-based foundation. Those with acne-prone skin may find themselves turning to a water-based foundation. Another liquid foundation option, this foundation includes water as its main ingredient and is generally free of oils. 

After choosing a foundation formula, you’ll also want to be knowledgeable about different coverage options.

1. Sheer coverage. A foundation with light or sheer coverage is ideal for someone who wants to improve their skin tone a bit but isn’t looking for a product that will cover or hide imperfections.

2. Medium coverage. A medium-coverage foundation will conceal some imperfections while still looking like skin.

3. Full coverage. A full-coverage foundation will hide all imperfections and blemishes, leaving you with a flawless canvas. The right full-coverage formula can even hide tattoos.

4. Buildable coverage. A foundation with buildable coverage can be built—aka layered—to your desired level of coverage. This is great if there are areas of your skin where you would like more coverage than others.

3 TYPES OF FOUNDATION FINISHES

1. Natural finish. This finish is what most closely resembles your skin, hence its name. It’s neither matte nor dewy.

2. Matte finish. This finish is shine-free, making it a popular option for those with oily skin.

3. Dewy finish. This finish is radiant and glowing, which is why those with dry skin tend to gravitate toward it.

Revealed Nigerian Children Infected With HIV

The United Nations has disclosed that no fewer than 22,000 Nigerian children get infected with HIV annually.

The UN system made the statement on Tuesday, at the National dialogue meeting for the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV in Nigeria otherwise known as vertical transmission of HIV.

Speaking on behalf of the UN was Mr Claes Johansson, Chief of management for results, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), who described the meeting as a crucial one for Nigeria to continue onward dialogue on what can be done and the ways of eliminating the vertical transmission of HIV.

”We are working within a frame work to map out a strategy that we will work with for the next five years along with Nigeria.

”Let us know your priorities, so that we can assist and help map out strong, sustainable ways to eliminating vertical transmission,” Johansson said.

Emphasising the need for a better strategy, the NACA Director General, Dr Gambo Aliyu, said that it was more of the strategy not working rather than the PMTCT.

He explained that in 2016, there were about 13,000 infected pregnant mothers that were not getting treatment, which had risen to 421,000 as at 2019.

Aliyu attributed the rise to the fact that many pregnant women were not visiting health facilities, adding that as part of the strategies to be discussed at the dialogue was how to get the facilities to the women, if they were not willing to come to the facilities.

Tourists Queue For Trips To Space

Americans are taking tourism high above the ordinary as many are queueing up for the journey to space, sixty years after Alan Shepard became the first American in space, and the second person in space after the Soviet Union launched cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin three weeks earlier.

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin used Wednesday’s anniversary to kick off an auction for a seat on the company’s first crew spaceflight — a short Shepard-like hop launched by a rocket named New Shepard. The Texas liftoff is targeted for July 20, the date of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic aims to kick off tourist flights next year, just as soon as he straps into his space-skimming, plane-launched rocketship for a test run from the New Mexico base.

And Elon Musk’s SpaceX will launch a billionaire and his sweepstakes winners in September. That will be followed by a flight by three businessmen to the International Space Station in January.

“We’ve always enjoyed this incredible thing called space, but we always want more people to be able to experience it as well,” NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough said from the space station Wednesday. “So I think this is a great step in the right direction.”

Since Gagarin and Shepard’s pioneering flights, 579 people have rocketed into space or reached its fringes, according to NASA.
