Whether it’s for aesthetics, non-slip protection, or a combination of the two, the best mildew-resistant bath

Whether it’s for aesthetics, non-slip protection, or a combination of the two, the best mildew-resistant bath mats handle excess water without encouraging the growth of mold and bacteria. Since moisture typically translates to mildew, that’s no easy feat — especially since the bathroom is a particularly damp place to begin with. Material choice is key here, but first you need to decide if you’re shopping for inside the bathtub or outside of it. When people hear the term “bath mats,” two different products come to mind: fluffy rugs that absorb moisture, or textured mats that prevent slipping. For that reason, I’ve divided the article into two categories, so whichever you’re shopping for, you can find the best options below. Next, you’ll need to decide on a material. An outside-the-tub bath mat should be made from a porous material that absorbs water, but the ability to dry quickly is paramount. Certain fabrics, woods, or natural materials allow for quick evaporation, which means that instead of sitting there harboring mildew, the rug can dry shortly after your shower. If opting for fabric, the mat should also be machine-washable to ...

Iran Calls to Turn the Events of “International Quds Day” on May 31, 2019, into a Show of Defiance Against President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” – The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center Iran Calls to Turn the Events of “International Quds Day” on May 31, 2019, into a

Iran, which is facing increasing pressured from the United States, wishes to turn “International Quds Day”, set to take place this Friday, May 31, 2019, to a show of opposition to the peace plan of President Trump, known as the “deal of the century.” On the eve of Quds Day, Ramazan Sharif, the Spokesman of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), declared that the slogan used for Quds Day rallies this year will be “the defeat of the Deal of the Century and stabilization of the Palestinian Question.” He lambasted the “deal of the century” and warned that its purpose is to eliminate Palestine. He added that the Palestinians have moved from using rocks to using rockets, emphasizing that the new generation of Palestinians is more committed than its predecessors to the struggle against Israel. The invitation to participate in the “March of Return,” held on May 31, 2019, under the slogan “International Quds Day.” The banner also reads “No to the deal of the century” and the hashtag #toward_Jerusalem (The Facebook page of the Supreme National Committee of the Marches of Return) The escalation between Iran and the United States and its regional allies, in parallel to the Trump ad...

More than a million residents across New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont remained without

More than a million residents across New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont remained without electricity on Tuesday in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. Irene hit  New York City on Sunday  as a weakened tropical storm after raking the Eastern seaboard from North Carolina to New Jersey. So far, the storm has killed at least 44 people. With Irene’s brutal rain replaced by crisp temperatures and brilliant blue skies, utility repair crews, cleanup teams and state and federal relief officials crisscrossed the region to assess the damage and reassure residents that help was on its way. Track the latest Atlantic hurricanes and tropical storms, and look back over past seasons at WSJ’s Hurricane Tracker. A southerly dip in a jet stream on the U.S. mainland and warmer-than-usual water temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean are helping push Hurricane Irene farther north along the Eastern seaboard than most tropical storms, say meteorologists. But the Category 3 hurricane also could lose much of its force if it moves slowly over cooler waters north of the Carolinas, they add.

2 Killed, 20 Injured When Warehouse Explosion Shakes Houston

HOUSTON — A massive explosion Friday leveled a warehouse in Houston, killing two workers, damaging nearby buildings and homes and rousing frightened residents from their sleep miles away, authorities said. The explosion happened about 4:30 a.m. inside a building at Watson Grinding and Manufacturing, which makes valves and provides thermal-spray coatings for equipment in various industries, authorities said. The building was reduced to burning rubble and debris, and some of the surrounding buildings suffered heavy damage to parts of their walls and roofs.

Adult Site CamSoda Offers NFL QB Gardner Minshew an Endorsement Deal

NFL quarterback Gardner Minshew, of the Jacksonville Jaguars, probably isn’t lacking for endorsement deals, but one offer, in particular, stands out: adult site CamSoda wants Minshew to lead an online exercise class “in a jock strap and/or naked.” Adult entertainment site Cam Soda has offered Gardner Minshew an endorsement deal to lead weekly online fitness classes. “Our only requirement is that you incorporate band workouts into your class and do them in a jock strap and/or naked.” Minshew was already a stand-out figure in the NFL, owing to his strong mustache game and penchant for wearing creative handbands, as well as his outstanding performance backing up injured quarterback and former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, but his legend really took off last November, when Mike Garafolo of “The Athletic” reported that, as a college player, Minshew was infamous for working out in just a headband, sunglasses and a jockstrap – and sometimes even naked. It gets better, though: CamSoda has upped the ante by offering up to $1 million dollars if Minshew consents to be the “official brand ambassador” for CamSoda’s “penis puppet...
