Which is advanced or better : Neon or LED illumination?
LED lighting is more advanced. Neon has a long history, having been used for nearly a century.Though Neon has the brightest lighting capacity, it requires maintenance. Neon emits more energy than LED lights. LED works in any climate. This makes LED a very reliable optionfor illuminated channel letters. They require much less maintenance and are more energy efficient than neon. Neon signs are easily broken. Being made of glass, they leak. LED does not have this problem . Once you get a neon sign, there's no changing it. Custom LED signs can be updated as often as you like, with whatever messages you like. Custom LED Signs Toronto Single Double Sided New Style Signs

Do detox teas really work as well as they claim?
No, the human body does not need special teas, poultices, witches brews, enemas, flushing fluids or other daftness to run.
If you like the tea - awesome - but the only way it would "detox" you, is if you just drink the tea *instead* of something like alcohol.
Water is about the best - and is cheap too.
Any potions, pills, liquids or powders claiming to "Detox you" are basically selling you snake oil.

Cockburns port is cloudy and has silt in it
That was only because you/he didn't handle it properly. When you picked it up to pour it, you disturbed the sediment. It is still fine to drink. The 'dirt' (bottle sediment) shows it is a good port. The oldest fortified wine I decanted was 1900 Madeira in year 2000, the oldest crusted port was a 1982, decanted in 2013 on my 60th birthday.
You need to let the port stand for a week or two, carry it carefully, remove the cork carefully with the bottle upright and then pour it into a glass jug or preferably a decanter whilst looking through the neck with a light behind it. As soon as you see the sediment arrive at the neck you slide over to another jug with a coffee filter in it and empty the bottle. Rinse the bottle thoroughly with hot water and then return the clear port back to the bottle. Use the cloudy port below the filter in cooking.
