    Are your mobile phone and other radiation-emitting products harming you?

    Humans are exposed to radiation on a daily basis, either from natural sources such as the sun, rocks, soil and water, or from man-made sources that emit radiation, such as mobile phones, microwave ovens, TV sets, diagnostic x-rays and x-ray security systems. While human exposure to radiation from manmade sources is generally low and not detrimental to health, some people fear that radiation-emitting products can increase the risk of developing cancer.

    'Fresh Off the Boat' executive producer talks superstition, Asian stereotyping

    The crew of the third season of American sitcom “Fresh Off the Boat” got their first taste of the Chinese blessing ceremony on production sets when the series filmed in Taiwan. Chinese-majority countries, such as Singapore and Hong Kong, often hold such ceremonies to bring good luck for larger scale productions. “It was funny because the American crew didn’t know what to think of it. It was their first experience with something like that,” said Melvin Mar, executive producer of the show about a Taiwanese family that struggles to fit in and embrace the American dream after migrating in the ’90s.
