A healthy 29-year-old guy who started having episodes of fainting had an unusual culprit to blame: his hair-loss medicine. The medication minoxidil (sold under the brand name Rogaine), which is used by men and women to stop their hair from thinning further , may trigger fainting in rare instances, according to a new report of the man's case. The British man had been using the over-the-counter drug for three months and during that time he fainted on two separate occasions, and had one near-fainting episode, according to the report. His doctors determined that the high-strength, 12.5-percent minoxidil formulation the man had been applying to his scalp once a day was responsible for the fainting and dizziness he was experiencing, according to the report published online Sept. 7 in the journal BMJ Case Reports.

Here are some tips to help you decide which hair care products to buy, as well as the lowdown on the science of some commonly touted ingredients.

Think back to your favourite video games and CG-animated movies. Ever remember seeing a character put on trousers or slip on a jacket? They might seem like mundane actions not entirely worthy of an animator's time, but the reason for their absence is actually more technical than artistic. While things like cloth, hair, and water are typically generated with physics simulations, character movement is animated manually. Getting the two different systems to interact naturally with each other is where the challenge lies. Researchers from Georgia Tech think they've come up with a solution to the problem, designing a system that allows a virtual human character to put on various types of garments in a natural way. The system—which is discussed in detail in their paper "Animating Human Dressing" released earlier this year ( PDF )—consists of three main components: a "primitive" action editor, a dressing controller, and a cloth simulator. The system works by feeding it a reference … [Read more...] about Researchers solve an age-old problem: How do you animate humans putting on trousers?

There are a lot of benefits to having 4K resolution on a computer monitor, whether you are deep into photo editing, play computer games, or want the best way to watch movies and TV shows while sitting at your computer desk.

The most inescapable thing about driving a Rolls-Royce Ghost is never being able to forget how much it costs. So let's get that out of the way: with a sticker price of $460,350, it's a car that costs more than a house in many parts of the country. This knowledge never escapes you, a constant reminder that you're visiting a world where just the cost of the options fitted to the car seen here would buy a pretty good pre-owned Mercedes S-Class. You remember it when you park or whenever another car gets a little too close in traffic, given the pricey consequences of a scratch or scrape. But the price tag also looms when you feel the weight of the metal switchgear or your feet sink into the deep shag of the lambswool carpets.
