New CVS smartphone app offers medical attention 24/7

CVS is diversifying its health services. On Wednesday, the retailer announced a new nationwide offering: virtual health appointments.

MinuteClinic, the company’s retail medical clinic, will now allow patients to use telehealth for minor illnesses (such as coughs or colds), injuries, skin conditions, and “other wellness needs,” reads a press release. The service is a collaboration between CVS and Teladoc, which specializes in virtual care technology.

The service will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via the CVS mobile app. Patients ages two years and up are eligible to dial in and be matched with a board-certified Teladoc health care provider licensed in their state. Each video session costs $59 and requires a patient to fill out a health questionnaire that includes their medical history.

MinuteClinic Video Visit is currently available in nine states–Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire and Virginia–and in Washington, D.C., with nationwide expansion expected by the end of the year. It is not currently covered by insurance, but CVS says it will be added in the coming months. During initial testing of MinuteClinic, CVS found that 95 percent of telehealth patients were highly satisfied with their quality of care, with most appreciating the convenience of checking in from the comfort of their homes.

It’s a smart move for CVS, which currently boasts 9,800 retail locations, 1,100 walk-in medical clinics, and about 94 million pharmacy-plan members. Telehealth has steadily grown across the medical industry–be it pediatrician visits, mental health checkups, or elder care. While the industry once suffered from a stigma that virtual appointments were “less than” in-person visits, public and professional perception has softened.

Physicians and nurses are steadily adopting telehealth, which has been championed by younger consumers looking for efficient, cost-effective solutions. For patients in remote areas or for people suffering from chronic ailments or issues that prevent them from moving easily–such as arthritis–telehealth can be a crucial option.

According to a recent medical survey by Kantar Media, 2 out of 5 physicians participate in telemedicine or plan to within the next year. For those who don’t, 80% feel that a percentage of their patients could be successfully diagnosed or treated via telemedicine.

“We’re excited to be able to bring this innovative care option to patients,” said Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., executive vice president and CMO of CVS Health, in a statement. “At CVS Health, we’re committed to delivering high-quality care when and where our patients need it and at prices they can afford. Through this new telehealth offering, patients now have an additional option for seeking care that is even more convenient for them.”

How to build a monster high-end gaming PC

Hi there, we are gonna give some details on how to build a monster pc and the estimate of it.


Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K

The Core i7-8700K has the highest stock clockspeeds Intel has ever offered, and with six cores we get a huge boost to overall processing power compared to the earlier Kaby Lake processors. Compared to the previous generation i7-7700K, i7-8700K is a huge upgrade. You get 50 percent more cores, running at higher clockspeeds. Few games actually use more than four cores, but that's starting to change, and outside of games the additional computational power can be very useful. Videos encode substantially faster, for example, and streaming while gaming is less likely to cause stuttering. Coffee Lake is basically Intel's answer to AMD's Ryzen. The Ryzen 7 processors doubled mainstream core counts, with four times as many threads as the i5-7600K. Unfortunately, per-core performance is lower, and games in particular still tend to not like Ryzen as much as Core i5/i7. But outside of gaming, the Ryzen 5 1600 and Ryzen 7 1700 were winning virtually every conceivable test scenario. Price: $347

Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Hero Wi-Fi AC

For a high-end build, we like a motherboard with great features, good overclocking support, and plenty of extras, which usually means looking around the $200 mark. The Asus ROG Maximus X Hero Wi-Fi AC is our pick for a high-end Z370 motherboard, with everything you need and probably plenty of things you'll never use. It overclocks as well as or better than other Z370 board we've tested, and it comes with useful extras like 802.11ac WiFi and USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gbps), along with flashy options like Aura-RGB lighting. We're only using one x16 slots, leaving room for a second graphics card down the line, and the built-in audio is top notch. Price: $ 267

Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti isn't the absolute fastest GPU on the market, those honors go to the Titan V and its $3,000 price tag. The Titan Xp is the next step down, which is just a hair faster than the GTX 1080 Ti at a substantially higher price. The 1080 Ti is effectively a Titan without the Titan price. The 1080 Ti offers top-end performance at 1080p and 1440p, and while it can't handle every game at 4k ultra, it comes close. The only faster option would be to add a second 1080 Ti, or wait for Turing cards to arrive. We recommend pairing the card with a 1440p 144Hz G-Sync display and games will glide by with nary a stutter in sight. Price: $ 674.99

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4-3200 CL14

RAM can often be a question mark when putting together a high-end build. Should you opt for clock speed or quantity? While quantity can be a factor up to a certain point, going beyond 16GB requires very specific workloads before you really benefit. As such, we felt it better to go after top-tier memory in the form of G.Skill's Ripjaws V DDR4-3200 line, which has extremely tight 14-14-14 timings. Compared to typical DDR4-2400 with CL15 timings, the Ripjaws V improves performance by 5-10 percent. It costs about 10 percent more on the memory side, but if you look at the entire system it only increases the price by about one percent. And you'll never have to worry if your memory speed is slowing things down. Price: $212.99

Primary storage: Samsung 970 Evo 1TB

The Samsung 970 Evo delivers sequential read speeds of up to 3,400MB/s and write speeds of 2,500MB/s (that’s megabytes per second, mind you). It's not quite as fast as the more expensive 970 Pro line, but you likely won't notice the difference. More importantly, you won’t be spending a whole lot of time on loading screens. Price: $348.99

Power supply: EVGA Supernova 850 P2 Platinum

When it comes to power supplies, EVGA’s P2 series are a favorite of ours. They improve on the already impressive G2 line and sport 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, along with a fully modular design that keeps cable clutter to a minimum. EVGA also backs its premium power supplies with a 10-year warranty, and the PSUs run cool and quiet. The 850W maximum load is plenty for this rig, and there's still plenty of room for a second GPU should the need arise. We usually like to leave 50-100W of headroom above the estimated maximum load of the system, and even with overclocking and a second 1080 Ti, this PSU will be sufficient. Price: $147.58

Case: NZXT H440

We build a lot of systems, and we know what things we like and dislike when it comes to cases. Modularity is great, and good cable management with a separate PSU partition are almost required. Things we don't really like (other than for aesthetic purposes): small cases that are a pain to set up and run hotter. NZXT's H440 is a continual favorite among system builders, with good reason. Not only does it look beautiful in an understated sort of way, but it's available in white or black, with several accent options. There's also a 'silent' option that includes sound dampening panels, but that does tend to increase temperatures a bit. Airflow is decent, and there are plenty of options for routing cables, storing SSDs, and more. Price: $102.88

CPU cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 v2

NZXT's Kraken series of CPU coolers are an excellent choice for all-in-one closed-loop solutions. They're easy to install and work well. The Kraken X62 v2 includes a large 280mm radiator, which is more than enough for an overclocked i7-8700K (though you'll still probably want to delid that sucker for maximum OC potential). Just make sure your case can handle such a large cooler.

Road to Eye-catching Landscape

The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. The European languages are members of the same family.
