Alleviate digital eye strain: Blue light glasses can help decrease eye fatigue and help us feel more focused and productive. Eye strain can also cause headaches and dry eyes, so your glasses can also relieve you from those symptoms. Get better sleep: Since blue light can be harmful to our natural sleep patterns, blue light glasses can decrease its impact.

Blue light-blocking lenses (and the benefits of better sleep) can help prevent any sleep-related health issues. Blue Light-Blocking Coating vs. Anti-Reflective Coating: What’s the Difference?

In the new live-action remake of Mulan, Lee plays the main villain, Bori Khan, and his training included a week in New Zealand working with a Maori Haka master, and then a bout of bulking up that found him dropping about 40 pounds of fat and adding 40 pounds of muscle. “I could feel that; I felt like a new man,” Lee says. “And that was just one part of the process because we had all the choreography, we had all the dialect training, we had the horse riding, the sword work — it was a great experience.” … [Read more...] about ‘The First Time’ With Jason Scott Lee

An anthropological adventure as much as a geological one, Fireball shifts with synapse-sparking ease from dire warning to sheer wonder. … [Read more...] about ‘Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds’: Film Review | TIFF 2020
The NBA restart on TNT, ESPN and ABC has been broadly considered a success. The league tackled the Black Lives Matter movement head-on, painting its name on the court in Orlando, FL, and allowing players to commemorate it with slogans on their jerseys. According to a report by ad tracking firm iSpot and Inscape, a subsidiary of smart-TV maker Vizio measuring viewing in 16 million households, several advertisers have embraced the protests in their creative messages.
