What is covid hespress com? Is hespress a new social media site?

I am aware of the international online media about the covid-19 circus, and there is a new expression called hespress, I would like to find out what does that mean exactly. All this coronavirus misery upsets me 'cause before the worldwide pandamic I could find interesting and informative articles about international economy, banking, politics etc. Now all you can read about is covid and how many have died, how many have been in hospitals. It is sad that all the news sites and media providers only - or mainly - talk about the virus and it's aftermath. Life isn't just about drama and sickness, please! Wow.. so please tell me somebody what's there to know about this so called hespress. Thank you

Can dogs eat watermelon, isn't it dangerous or poisoneus for them?

I have a really sweet 4 months old puppy and she loves all the fruits and vegetables so far. I give her a bite of everything I eat cause I'm curious wether she likes that type of food or not. I've read a lot of articles about giving raw food is genuinely healthy for them but I still can't believe that they may eat each and every type of fruits, vegetables. Of course I know that they shouldn't eat chocolate and sugary stuff, as well as too spicy ones. Please give me some clue wich vegetables and fruits are poisoneus for the dogs.

How come a glass rings if you run your wet finger around the rim?

Like absentmindedly drumming on a tabletop, idly running a finger around the rim of a glass can make a kind of music—an otherworldly, ghostly music. How come?

Why do we sound better singing in the shower?

Even if your family groans when you sing along to the car radio, even if you didn’t make the cut for the choir, and even if you got asked to be the drummer rather than the lead vocalist in your friends’ garage band, you sound exactly like your favorite pop (or opera) star in the shower. How come? And why do we enjoy singing in the shower to begin with?

Why do fingernails (and sometimes chalk) sound so awful on a blackboard?

How come we can hear the sound of the ocean in a big seashell?

When you hold a large seashell to your ear, you can hear a distant roaring sound. It’s as if the great rumble and crash of the ocean waves is somehow trapped within the shell. So when you bring a seashell home from the beach, it keeps the memory of the sea alive.  But even if you don’t have a seashell handy, and it’s too cold to go to the beach, you can always hear the ocean. Just pick up an empty coffee mug, and hold it to your ear, tilted slightly away. Ah, there it is—the gentle, echoing roar of the waves.

When a fire engine goes by, why does the siren’s sound change?

Have you ever stood on a city sidewalk and heard the distant wail of an approaching fire engine? As the fire truck comes into view, the sound of its siren becomes louder and more frantic, the wail higher and higher pitched. Then, as it passes, the opposite effect occurs: The sound of the siren drops in pitch, getting lower and lower as the vehicle vanishes into distant traffic. But the fire truck’s driver hears no such change; to him, the siren that he flipped on 20 blocks ago has sounded at a steady pitch.

Why do wheels appear to spin backward?

We’ve all seen it in movies or old TV westerns—as the stagecoach (or train) picks up speed, its fast-moving wheels appear to switch direction, slowly turning backward. We also occasionally see the phenomenon in real life, with spinning car tires and whirling ceiling fans. Scientists call it the Wagon-Wheel Effect. What causes the “backward” effect?
