I’ve recently noticed a lot of spam going into my normal email address, which is through yahoo. When I go in to look at who the spam is from/to in the mail app on my iPhone it says that the mail is addressed to an att.net email address with my name on it that I never created and am not logged into. I do not know how I am receiving mail to this email address through a different account, but I also cannot sign in to the att.net account to delete it because the only way to do that would be with a code sent to the att.net email address but the emails with the code are not arriving in my yahoo.com inbox or spam folder. It does not let me sign in with a password and I don’t even know what it would be. It doesn’t give me other recovery options which just makes me glad because I guess at least it doesn’t have my phone number.
TLDR; Please help me delete this att.net email account that I never created and am somehow receiving mail to through a different account.
////Q//// Dietary fibers are complex polymeric carbohydrates that cannot be metabolized by enzymes encoded by the human genome and are metabolized by gut microbes through anaerobic fermentation. Epidemiologic studies suggest an increased risk of chronic inflammatory diseases associated with a lower dietary fiber intake. The gut microbiome regulates host metabolism and immune homeostasis.
Different dietary fibers and their metabolic products, such as short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), can profoundly impact hosts and modulate gut microbial composition. Therefore, exploring how dietary fibers regulate host microbial communities can allow for targeted therapeutic interventions. As such, in the present study, the authors illustrate the effects of dietary fiber interventions on the gut microbiome and inflammatory diseases. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20221202/Exploring-the-effects-of-dietary-fiber-on-gut-microbiome-and-inflammatory-diseases.aspx
And looming sea level rise, which quickens the pace of beach erosion on developed coastlines, will only make Florida's future efforts to protect its beaches more complicated and costly.
The scarcity of sand
There's plenty of sand sitting in relatively shallow water on the continental shelf that rings Florida. But not all of it is good enough for the state's beaches. Sand that has the wrong color or grain type can harm plants and animals, like the sea turtles that build their nests along the Florida coast.
There are economic considerations, too: Florida spends billions of dollars a year advertising its pristine, white-sand beaches to tourists. Loading the shoreline up with inferior quality sand could make the state a less attractive vacation destination.
Since 1935, Florida has dredged or dug up about half a trillion tons of high-quality sand to maintain its eroding beaches, according to the National Beach Nourishment Database developed by the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association and the Army Corps. But the state's supply of good sand is running low—and once those deposits are gone, they won't come back any time soon, according to Stephen Leatherman, a professor of coastal science at Florida International University. https://phys.org/news/2022-12-sand-gold-pricey-florida-beaches.html

For Spiegel, who has been researching IBS for many years, the idea that gravity may be the common denominator arose when a family member living in an assisted living started having intestinal issues.
“She has recently been spending a lot of time bedbound, and of course, we’re not really designed to be bedbound. We’re designed to be an upright organism,” says Spiegel. “It turned out that almost coincident with starting to lie down, she was developing all sorts of [gastrointestinal] issues, abdominal distress, bloating and constipation, and some really significant issues that required medications.” https://www.inverse.com/mind-body/strange-idea-to-explain-irritable-bowel-syndrome
Published in Frontiers in Public Health the study showed that high levels of traffic-related air pollution - fine particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) – were associated with an increased risk of having at least two long term health conditions.

In the wild, the young wolves split off from their packs to find opposite-sex partners with which to breed and form new packs. New research in Yellowstone suggests that Toxoplasma gondii – the parasite responsible for toxoplasmosis – might play a part in the dispersal process.
Once bonded, wolf pairs are highly monogamous and usually do not change partners unless one of the pair dies. The male and female dominate the pack and decide who eats first simply because they are the parents of the rest of the group. There are almost no fights between wild male offspring and their fathers for alpha male status. https://www.iflscience.com/the-term-alpha-male-is-all-a-lie-66483

The European Commission has fined the chemical companies Sunpor, Synbra, Synthomer, Synthos, and Trinseo a total of $162 million for participating in a cartel to depress the price of styrene, a raw material they buy, on the European market. Ineos also participated in the cartel but avoided a fine by blowing the whistle on the illegal activity. The commission began its investigation in September 2017. It found that the companies had been operating as a cartel between May 1, 2012, and June 30, 2018. “The six buyers of styrene exchanged sensitive commercial information and coordinated their negotiation strategy,” the commission states in a press release. https://cen.acs.org/business/petrochemicals/EC-fines-5-styrene-buyers/100/i43
Based on the success of this quantum model, the team determined that their holographic wormhole had been traversed.
While this science is fascinating, Spiropulu and authors of a commentary essay also published in Nature admit that it’s not necessarily a ground-breaking finding unto itself. In fact, because this experiment only used nine qubits, Spiropulu said that this experiment also could have been done on a classical computer as well.
Instead, the importance of this work is that it’s a proof-of-principle for how quantum computers can be used to help scientists explore complex ideas like quantum gravity. https://www.vice.com/en/article/bvmaaw/google-researchers-create-traversable-holographic-wormhole-using-quantum-computer-in-new-study

A recent human study published this week in the scientific journal Antioxidants found that consuming grapes protected against ultraviolet (UV) damage to the skin. Study subjects showed increased resistance to sunburn after consuming 2 ¼ cups of grapes every day for two weeks. Additionally, subjects displaying UV resistance also demonstrated unique microbiomic and metabolomic profiles suggesting a correlation between the gut and skin. Natural components found in grapes known as polyphenols are thought to be responsible for these beneficial effects.
This new study reinforces previous research in this area https://www.news-medical.net/news/20221130/Grape-consumption-protects-against-ultraviolet-UV-damage-to-the-skin.aspx

For millions of years, the Steller's sea cow, a four-ton marine mammal and relative of the manatee, shaped kelp forests along the Pacific coast of North America by eating massive quantities of kelp fronds from the upper canopies, thus allowing light to spur productivity in the understory. In a paper published today in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, researchers from the California Academy of Sciences -- as part of the Academy's Thriving Californiainitiative -- reveal what historical kelp forests may have looked like in the presence of the marine megaherbivore, which went extinct in the 1700s just 27 years after its first encounter with Europeans due to overhunting, and suggest how kelp forest conservation efforts can take its absence into account https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/11/221128140353.htm
The strongest Arctic cyclone ever observed poleward of 70 degrees north latitude struck in January 2022 northeast of Greenland. A new analysis led by the University of Washington shows that while weather forecasts accurately predicted the storm, ice models seriously underestimated its impact on the region's sea ice.
The study, published in October in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres, suggests that existing models underestimate the impact of big waves on ice floes in the Arctic Ocean.
"The loss of sea ice in six days was the biggest change we could find in the historical observations since 1979, and the area of ice lost was 30% greater than the previous record," said lead author Ed Blanchard-Wrigglesworth, a research assistant professor of atmospheric sciences at the UW. "The ice models did predict some loss, but only about half of what we saw in the real world." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/11/221129143824.htm

About one third of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) develop diabetic retinopathy (DR), a leading cause of blindness in working-age individuals. DR typically develops after many years of DM, and some patients do not develop DR for more than 50 years. New research suggests that an endogenous system that protects human retinal endothelial cells from harmful effects of the hyperglycemia (an excess of blood sugar) may be responsible for the delayed onset of DR. Furthermore, degradation of this protective system over time may set the stage for development of DR. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20221129/Endogenous-system-may-be-responsible-for-delayed-onset-of-diabetic-retinopathy.aspx
Both drugs showed powerful efficacy on the lab bench, killing most bed bugs, although fluralaner performed much more effectively on bed bugs that showed resistance to common insecticides.
“The drugs affect receptors in the insect’s nervous system,” said Coby Schal, Blanton J. Whitmire Distinguished Professor of Entomology at NC State and the corresponding author of a paper describing the work.
Fluralener was highly effective at killing bed bugs that fed on chickens dosed with the drug. Ivermectin, meanwhile, was ineffective against bed bugs that fed on dosed chickens. https://scienceblog.com/535221/common-veterinary-drugs-show-effectiveness-against-bed-bugs/
New research finds that the hot, exposed land in the central U.S. during the Dust Bowl drought influenced temperatures across much of North America and as far away as Europe and East Asia. That's because the extreme heating of the Great Plains triggered motions of air around the Northern Hemisphere in ways that suppressed cloud formation in some regions and, in combination with the influence of tropical oceanic conditions, led to record heat thousands of miles away.
"The hot and dry conditions over the Great Plains during the Dust Bowl spread extreme heat to other areas of the Northern Hemisphere," said Gerald Meehl, a scientist with the National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and lead author of the new study. "If you look at daily record high temperatures, some of these areas are just now breaking the records that were set in the 1930s." https://phys.org/news/2022-11-1930s-bowl-extreme-northern-hemisphere.html

Earlier studies suggested managers would set clear goals and then monitor progress, otherwise leaving staff to get on with it. Instead, the managers in our study told us they tended to treat remote workers holistically—as people, not just staff. They focused on social connections instead of just objective performance.

A common chemotherapy drug could carry a toxic inheritance for children and grandchildren of adolescent cancer survivors, Washington State University-led research indicates.
The study, published online in iScience, found that male rats who received the drug ifosfamide during adolescence had offspring and grand-offspring with increased incidence of disease. While other research has shown that cancer treatments can increase patients’ chance of developing disease later in life, this is one of the first-known studies showing that susceptibility can be passed down to a third generation of unexposed offspring. https://www.newswise.com/articles/chemotherapy-could-increase-disease-susceptibility-in-future-generations
has revealed that global warming and ocean acidification threaten marine organisms that build their skeletons and shells with calcium carbonate (chalk) such as corals, bryozoans, molluscs, sea urchins or crustaceans.
The work, recently published in the journal Ecography, focuses on organisms with calcium carbonate skeletons from around Antarctica in the Southern Ocean. Calcium carbonate is more soluble in more acidic waters which contain more carbon dioxide (CO2), such as the colder waters of the polar regions, making it harder for these creatures to build their skeletons. https://www.newswise.com/articles/calcifying-organisms-under-threat-from-a-combination-of-ocean-warming-and-acidification

_However, as The New York Times noted, foreign investment in petroleum is something that Maduro desperately needs in order to improve his country's economy, which has been sinking despite Venezuela having the world's largest oil reserves. As a result, the U.S. agreed to grant Chevron's license after Maduro pledged to implement a $3 billion humanitarian program and also hold talks regarding fair elections in Venezuela, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Chevron may now resume activity in its oil fields alongside a joint venture with the Venezuelan national oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela SA.
"We have long made clear we believe the best solution in Venezuela is a negotiated one between Venezuelans," an anonymous Biden administration official told The Washington Post. "To encourage this, we have also said we were willing to provide targeted sanctions relief." However, the official added that additional action would require more "concrete steps," including the release of political prisoners and allowing United Nations humanitarian missions into Venezuela. https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/u-gives-green-light-chevron-163804126.html?src=rss
Currently, the best evidence for reducing the chances of re-spraining your ankle sprain comes down to two main things:
1) Protecting the joint with an ankle brace when active
This could mean using a professionally fitted external support brace (not an elastic sleeve). This is a relatively low-cost and effective means of risk reduction.
2) Using balancing exercises and 'proprioceptive training'
Examples of proprioceptive training include:
balancing on each leg, one at a time, while throwing and catching a ball against a wall balancing on an ankle disc or wobble board for three to five minutes daily.
These exercises can help strengthen the muscles and ligaments in your ankle.
As one literature review put it: "Proprioceptive training is a cost- and time-effective intervention that can benefit patients who have sustained a previous ankle sprain during physical activity and can subsequently reduce the risk of further complications." https://www.sciencealert.com/the-science-behind-why-you-sprain-your-ankle-so-often-and-what-you-can-do-about-it

Yet, there has been little to show for these efforts, while public health agencies, including experts at the United Nations, repeatedly advocate for smarter, more compassionate drug policy rooted in science. https://www.salon.com/2022/11/26/their-children-struggled-with-addiction-now-theyre-fighting-against-the-on/
Bruce Bebo, executive vice president of research at the nonprofit National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which helped fund the study, said he believes the findings fall just short of proving causation. They do, however, provide “probably the strongest evidence to date of that link between EBV and MS,” he said.
Epstein-Barr virus has infected about 95 percent of adults. Yet only a tiny fraction of them will develop multiple sclerosis. Other factors are also known to affect a person’s MS risk, including genetics, low vitamin D, smoking, and childhood obesity. https://www.inverse.com/science/epstein-barr-multiple-sclerosis
The researchers believed that this indicated that the Archaea they identified should be able to swap genes with Bacteria and vice-versa, as easily as Bacteria swap genes among themselves. To prove that their idea was correct, they synthesized AttC from an Archaea specimen and exposed it to an E. coli specimen. Testing showed that cassettes had been created allowing gene swapping to occur. https://phys.org/news/2022-11-archaea-integrons-cross-domain-gene.html
What they have found is that taking a more compassionate and apparently "softer" approach to business, politics and sports management brings positive results, not just for the benefit of people who work for them, but for their own benefit too. The traditional notion that you have to be ruthless, driven and focussed on number one if you want to achieve success is being discredited https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20221124-does-kindness-get-in-the-way-of-success https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20221124-does-kindness-get-in-the-way-of-success

The Atacama Desert is nestled between the Andes and the Chilean Coast Range, which blocks moisture from traveling inland from the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
And although it is one of the driest places on Earth, one million people call the desolate landscape home.
But Chile's massive Atacama Desert is a unique and fragile ecosystem that experts say is being threatened by piles of trash dumped there from around the world.
The fast fashion industry is a primary culprit in the mountains of clothes sprawling over the once barren hills. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-11470615/Chiles-Atacama-Desert-graveyard-worlds-junk-threatening-science.html

"From observational temperature data we can now infer that the Amazon has been consistently drying for more than one hundred years. Earth System Models project a continued drying into the future under global warming and therefore gives us further reason to be concerned about climate-driven rainforest dieback in the Amazon," said Dr. Paul Ritchie also from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Exeter.
As senior author Professor Peter Cox put it, "Together, these studies provide a firmer basis for detecting drying that could lead to Amazon forest dieback, but they also heighten our concerns about forest dieback under climate change." https://phys.org/news/2022-11-dieback-amazon-rainforest-climate-latest.html

Deep brain stimulation works well for a lot of patients and has only started to get mainstream attention in the past decade or so, but ideas underlying this treatment are nearly 60 years old. As explained by Joseph Fins, a neuroethicist and professor of medicine at Wei Cornell Medical College, part of Cornell University in the US, it all started with a Spanish neuroscientist named Jose Manuel Rodriguez Delgado in 1964. https://theconversation.com/treating-mental-illness-with-electricity-marries-old-ideas-with-modern-tech-and-understanding-of-the-brain-podcast-195071
It's been one of those days where nothing I try in HA works and im ready to punt it across the house.
Can someone please help me figure out why I cant get SMTP to work. My config.yaml looks like this:
notify: - name: Group-text platform: smtp server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com port: 587 timeout: 15 sender: ****@yahoo.com encryption: starttls username:*****@yahoo.com password: "APP_PASSWORD" verify_ssl: false recipient: - ******@txt.att.net sender_name: HASS
And it appears to show up - I can get it as an action in automations just fine. The problem is, it never works. Every time I try to fire off a notification, I get this:

I have an att.net account with yahoo and I don’t remember any of my security questions and it seems like there’s no way around them but I’ve entered my email password wrong too many times so I can’t access it at all. Does anyone know a way around this?
I have a Yahoo email account that ends in .ameritech.net . This account is/was under ATT/Yahoo. the account was a sub account under my main account. account needs a reset . I need a way to get back into the account. the reset link goes to the account that I cannot get into .
I have an att.net email address that runs through Yahoo. This is what I use for my yahoo fantasy sports account, and have for years. Now when I go into the yahoo fantasy sports app and try to log in it has to use an in-app browser for me to login. That browser logs in successfully, but that data doesn’t get sent to the app so I am unable to use the app for fantasy sports or even email.
Anyone know a workaround or if yahoo is aware of this? With their pay for customer support I’m not calling this in.
Not sure if this is the right place for this, let me know if it isn’t.
Recently (over the past 6 months) my very old sbcglobal.net email has been having severe issues. First, I’ve noticed that I cannot regularly access my email from my laptop. About every 1 month of getting on my laptop, the page reloads with my email and then I am forced to log in only this time, it will not work with my current up to date password and states my “account is locked due to several failed attempts to get in”. So, I make a new one, go through the process, yada yada, and re-sign in with my phone (which is always signed in to my email).
A new development to this “quirk” is that now I am unable to log into my email on my laptop and I am unable to reset the password like I do every month. Upon some research into ATT forums, I found out this can be account specific but haven’t seen many forums talking about it recently.
The newest, possibly worst development into this degradation is that now my email is flooded with numerous spam emails. I receive ~15-20 per day in my regular mail box on my phone now and also receive emails from yahoo to “upgrade to filter out junk”. I am also unable to log into my laptop or reset the password.
To summarize, my email has been degrading to the point of uselessness and I’m wondering how many others are going through something similar. I also think yahoo is doing this purposely to get people to upgrade to yahoo+.
Also some help would be appreciated as well.
I saw someone had an ending of att.net for their email which I've never seen before, and I was wondering if it has the same features like google(gmail) and yahoo. What would be the use of this? Is this only available to people who uses at&t services? What is the pros and cons of having this email?
