Folding@Home (folding at home) is a distributed computing program of Stanford University that lets you help finding cures for different diseases by performing complex calculations with your computer. After solving each problem, you earn points proportional to your contribution. The more points you earn, more helpful you are for medical research. In this article I'm going to show you how to maximize your folding at home points per day and make the most of your computer's hardware. Thus you will be more helpful to medical research and will increase the chance of finding cure for different diseases.

All mobile phones, including smartphones, emit radio waves from their antennas in order to send/receive voice calls and data. Our body absorbs these waves and if they are too powerful, they will have negative effect on our health. The rate at which such radiation is absorbed by the human body is called Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) and is measured in watts per kilogram (W/kg). A mobile phone is approved for release only if its radiation level is below a certain threshold, which is 1.6 W/kg in the US and India and 2.0 W/kg in Europe. The lower the SAR value, the less radiation the phone emits. This article compares the SAR values of popular Android and iOS smartphones, so read on to find out which ones of them emit the lowest amount of radiation.
