Skip the supplements and add these healthy foods to your diet.

What’s your go-to when you have symptoms such as a headache, fatigue, poor sleep or trouble focusing? Maybe you reach for caffeine; maybe you take a nap. If you’re a health-conscious person, perhaps you think about how much water you’ve had recently or if you forgot to take your daily multivitamin. 

It’s normal to turn to supplements in an attempt to supply your body with nutrients you think might be missing from your diet (and responsible for your symptoms). 

However, turning to supplements without first considering the quality of your diet may not get you anywhere. Supplements can help fill gaps in your diet, but it’s always best to get most of your vitamins and minerals through a nutritious diet. 

Try taking a food-first approach with this guide to the top food sources for every vitamin and mineral. You’ll notice that many overlap and — who’d’ve known — vegetables appear as a top source for almost every nutrient.

Bored Ape Yacht Club: What you need to know about the NFT collection

There are 10,000 NFTs in the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection. Here are three examples. The middle one is owned by Jimmy Fallon.

A quiz: What do Paris Hilton, Jimmy Fallon, Steph Curry and Eminem have in common? 

They’re all members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, a prestigious collection of 10,000 ape avatar NFTs with different traits and attributes. You can see three Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs above. That middle one with the captain’s hat? It’s Jimmy Fallon’s. He paid over $200,000 for it.

You may already it’s Fallon’s if you’re a viewer of Fallon’s Tonight Show, since he flaunted his ape on Monday’s episode with guest Paris Hilton. Moments prior, Hilton revealed that she’d recently bought a Bored Ape of her own, which Fallon showed to a slightly confused audience. 

What makes BAYC “prestigious”? Well, for starters the minimum cost of entry is 93 ether. For those of you who don’t know the value of cryptocurrencies off the top of their head, that’s about $224,000. And again, there are only 10,000 of them. As more famous people buy in, that fixed supply is percieved as becoming more and more valuable.

You can actually unlock your Windows laptop with your face

You can unlock your Windows 11 laptop with your face.

Apple’s FaceID on the iPhone is pretty cool, but Microsoft actually did facial recognition first with Windows Hello. That means there’s a hands-free trick to unlocking your laptop. Using your Windows 10 or Windows 11 laptop or tablet’s built-in webcam, Hello uses facial recognition to get you in and working in under two seconds. It even works with apps and websites such as Dropbox, Chrome and OneDrive, so you can skip typing in a password.

Unfortunately, not every webcam works with Windows Hello. Your laptop webcam needs an infrared (IR) camera to use the feature, which are more common in new laptops and two-in-ones from the past couple of years, including those from Dell, Lenovo and Asus. If you’re not ready for a new laptop, you can opt to buy a supported external webcam like Logitech’s Brio 4K Pro, Dell’s 4K UltraSharp or Lenovo’s 500 FHD
