Extend the Life Of Your Smartphone Or Tablet Battery.

1. Protect your device from temperatures over 95 degrees (35 degrees Celsius ). Those temperatures can damage battery capacity.

2. Shut down location-tracking apps when not using them. 

3. Turn off the function that refreshes apps in the background.

8. Extend the refresh time: Set your email to get new messages every 15 minutes (or even longer) rather than as soon as they arrive on the server

9. Do some digging. Look for apps like iOptimizer or Battery Graph that help you monitor your battery use.

10.  For optimum performance, “reboot” your battery whenever you can by waiting to charge until the battery is down to about 10 percent. Then, fill ’er up to 100 percent. Try to avoid overcharging it except for newer devices, which is recommended.

2. There is a spider in Brazil whose bites can cause an erection that lasts for Hours.
Banana spider or Phoneutria nigriventer – is native to South and Central America.
The venom of the Phoneutria nigriventer spider is a very rich mixture of several molecules.

These molecules are called toxins, and then we have various toxins in this venom with different activity.

Because of this, when a human is bitten by this spider, many different symptoms appear including priapism, a condition in which the penis is continually erect.’

Other side-effects on top of the long-painful erections include loss of muscle control, severe pain, difficulty breathing and if its victim is not treated with anti-venom, could lead to death due to oxygen deprivation.
