A Look inside the potein Bar

Protein is the hot ingredient of the moment in processed foods, joining the terms organic and low-fat as a major selling point to pitch to health-conscious shoppers. While carbohydrates and many fats are still widely regarded as suspect, protein is being proudly added to products throughout the grocery store, especially the snack aisle, which has made way for a new star: the protein bar. But a closer look shows that its blessings are mixed.

Unlike other snack bars, the protein bar contains large concentrations of protein. Protein helps build muscle. Research also shows that it may make you feel full, and thus avoid

overeating. Kellogg’s Special K Protein Bar flags this idea on its wrapper: “Satisfies Hunger Longer.” But more rigorous studies are needed to assess the bars’ long-term

usefulness in fighting obesity.

Unlocking Hidden Secrets

The human brain is the most complex part of our body. The 1.4kg mass of one hundred billion neurons has a mind boggling potential to control every aspect of our lives. We think, breathe, move and remember things all through our brain, yet we know relatively little about this vital organ.

Nicholas Spitzer, Distinguished Professor of Neurobiology at the University of California, San Diego, believes the coming years will witness exciting new discoveries about our brains. We will see extraordinary advancements in tools that give us a deeper insight into the brain. We may even see much-needed treatments for neurodegenerative disorders.

But more exciting are the things we can’t yet predict. Could we create nanobots that can find their way inside neurons and send us reports via wireless, for instance? Or could we harness the electrical activity of these bots and use it to power prosthetic devices?

Iceland’s Valcono timelapes

In the spring of 2010, the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, erupted, shutting down airways all across Europe. Sean Stiegemeier organized a sponsored trip to the country to capture the natural disaster in a beautiful way. He used his Canon 5D MKII to film a time lapse of the eruption over the course of 1 1/2 days. Dynamic Perception loaned Stiegemeier a prototype of the MILapse dolly, which is now being marketed as the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly Kit, an affordable alternative to the popular Kessler dollies

Shot through a 16-35 2.8 L series lens and set to the music of Jonsi, the time lapse takes viewers on visual tour of the volcano, which includes multiple angles and views to fully encompass the size and impact the eruption made. One of the films more powerful scenes include the wreckage of a DC-3 airplane, filmed southeast of Skogafoss. While restrictions kept Stiegemeier from venturing in too close to the volcano he did note, “I actually had the best jeep driver one day that took us in the restricted area, but then the cops chased us and we had to hide.” When asked about the file format Stiegemeier used to record the footage he says, “Some [are] bracket, some [are] single, and some not HDR at all. All depends on the shot and how it renders out to.”

Transitions in UX Design

Some websites outperform others, whether in their content, usability, design, features, etc. Details of interaction design and animation make a fundamental difference on modern websites. We’ll share some lessons drawn from various models and analyze why these simple patterns work so well.

When we design digital products, we often use design applications such as Photoshop and Sketch. Most people who have been in the business for a few years obviously know that design is more than just about visual presentation. Still, many continue to create static designs. Steve about design:

“It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

Our experience and impression of a product are shaped by a combination of factors, with interaction playing a fundamental role. No longer can we think of user interfaces as static designs and add the magic of interaction later on. Instead, we need to embrace the interactive nature of the Web from the very beginning and think of it as natural constituent.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself.

Because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure? On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee.
