The pebble-shaped gadget fits in a toilet bowl and captures urine, which is then analyzed internally by cartridges that assess various biomarkers. The user can check the results through the Withings Health Mate app and share it with their doctor.


But U-Scan isn't just for one-off urinalysis. Your pee contains a continuous treasure trove of information about your health, fitness, and fertility. Separate cartridges in the U-Scan allow you to monitor hydration, nutrition, metabolism, vitamin levels, or ovulation and menstruation. All health data is compliant with Europe's GDPR privacy regulations.

The nutrition and hydration cartridge informs the app about your hydration, your protein and vegetable intake, carbohydrate intake, and vitamin C levels using biomarkers like pH balance and ketone levels. The cycle tracking cartridge can pinpoint your menstruation cycle and ovulation window by measuring luteinizing hormone levels.

If you share a bathroom with others, Withings has got you covered like a toilet seat. U-Scan's "Stream ID" feature uses radar sensors "to identify an individual's urine stream signature, by detecting the movement and distance of the stream," the company says.

Bursting to buy one? If you live in Europe, you're in luck. U-Scan will be available to buy there in early spring 2023. It's also in development for the U.S. market, pending FDA approval. The starter kit comes with a rechargeable reader and cartridge intended to last for three months, including battery life.

Artist Phil Gable, who also serves as creative director for the brand content company, told Patch the idea for the statues came after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's nomination was confirmed in the senate.

While many of Gable's Park Slope neighbors have responded with compliments and thanks, not everyone was pleased with the art's political statement. One such statue planted in front of the Marquis De Lafayette monument on Prospect Park West and Ninth Street Monday night had been dumped into the trash by Tuesday afternoon.

This is an excerpt from the latest episode of Everyone & Their Mom, a new show from Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me! Follow us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or listen on NPR One, and you can find us on Instagram.

This week, Wait Wait panelist and comedian Maeve Higgins joins host Emma Choi to discuss the latest in aquatic gossip: Recent studies suggest that dolphins are able to tell each other apart by swimming through and tasting each other's urine. Yuck! But also, cute maybe?

We can't get past the pee part, so we had to ask about someone who actually knows what's going on. Cue Dr. Jason Bruck, an assistant professor at Stephen F. Austin State University who led the gross (but interesting!) study.

The study focused on the unique whistles that dolphins use to find each other when they are separated from their groups, like how people call each other by name. He and his team discovered they not only recognize each other through these whistles, but also through tasting each other's excretions, kind of like how your dog will sniff other dog's pee on a walk, but a little grosser.

You know who else loved gross things? People in the olden times! Emma talked to her college professor Dr. Arianne Sedef Urus, who taught a class on witchcraft and magic, a subject that utilizes bodily fluids pretty regularly. She shares stories about witch bottles and how people may have diagnosed diabetes in centuries past. Then, she plays a game where she reveals how magical our favorite mystical things REALLY are.

Various physiological conditions can hamper urination. Prostatitis, for example, can make urination difficult for affected men. The doctor will usually perform a series of tests to make sure that nothing is physically wrong with your urinary tract. Generally, the diagnosis is paruresis if you can urinate successfully when alone at home. The doctor may suggest the short-term use of drugs such as tranquillisers or antidepressants. However, these drugs will only reduce anxiety, not cure the condition. In severe cases, the doctor may suggest that you learn self-catheterisation. A catheter is a slender tube inserted up the urethra and into the bladder to drain urine.

What does it mean when a dog pees on you or your guests? What if they pee on a stranger in the park? It certainly makes for an embarrassing experience, and many dog owners may be tempted to shout or punish their dog for urinating on them or another person.

The problem is that punishment or making a fuss is likely only to make the issue worse. Dogs peeing on people signifies a serious psychological or emotional problem. It is far more than just an embarrassing inconvenience.

Inappropriate urination is a risk factor for aggression, according to one study. Nevertheless, it is extremely rare, and dominance and aggression is perhaps the least common reason a dog may pee on you.

Picking or greeting an extremely nervous and submissive dog is one of the more common reasons that dogs pee on us. Submissive urination happens when dogs desperately try to appease or make sure we are friendly to them. Signs of submissive peeing include:

A dog with separation anxiety may pee on you when they think you are leaving. Similarly, dogs with a noise phobia may pee if there is a thunderstorm. Chronic stress can also sometimes cause dogs to leak urine.

If your dog peed on you while cuddled on the couch, your dog likely has an incontinence issue. If your dog was sleeping at the time when they urinated, it means the muscles holding their bladder closed relaxed too far, causing them to leak urine.

Secondly, you establish leadership with a dog through communication, structure, and trust. Peeing on your dog indicates a failure in all three of these, implying that you cannot lead your dog and that having a dog is likely not the best choice for you or the dog.

It can be distressing if your dog pees on you, but remember that it is a myth that dogs pee on people to show dominance. Dogs have specific behaviors rooted in body language when they feel aggressive or dominant toward someone. Peeing during a greeting is more likely a sign of extreme submissiveness.

For this reason, any peeing on you or others is abnormal behavior. It indicates either a deep set of behavior problems, such as fear or anxiety, or there is a medical cause, and your dog may need to see the vet.

There are a lot of sex trends, of which some can be challenging, many are exciting while a few might be embarrassing. One of such fetishes many people have is about peeing during sex or seeing their partner pee during sex. If you are wondering why the fetish then let us start with the basics of why this happens and what makes it a sexual adventure. Mainly, this is a female issue because in men, there is a mechanism which prevents their erect penis from urinating. So, here we answer all your queries about peeing during sex and why does it excite certain people.

WHAT CAUSES URINATION WHILE HAVING SEX IN WOMEN? Often, the incontinence is responsible for urination during sex. It is an unintentional urination where you have no control over your bladder. Sexual stimulation puts pressure on your urethra and when it gets combined with weakened pelvic muscles, it may lead to incontinence.

THE PEE FETISH, OR BETTER KNOWN AS GOLDEN-SHOWER FETISH: Yes, it is actually a thing. It is called urophilia, a form of salirophilia, which means the person associates sexual excitement with urine. We all know that as a society we are squeamish about sex. Another thing we are squeamish about? Our bathroom habits. Urophilia combines these two things and partners may want to see their partner urinate in front of them as a symbol of intimacy. These people usually think that it is a way they connect and get intimate with their partners.

WHY PEE TURNS CERTAIN PEOPLE ON: Now, why exactly are certain people turned on by urine is not exactly clear. One reason could be that certain people like being defiled and getting peed on can turn them on. Another reasoning can go thus: It is simply wild, uninhibited and taboo, without the risks and any pain. Many see it as gross while there are some who simply think it as a part of wanting more of a certain person, wanting his everything. 041b061a72
