A Vegan Diet Is Not Only About Giving Up On Meat, It’s More Than That!

Then ask a vegan!
Veganism is a term that does not really refer to a diet, but rather a lifestyle as being a vegan does not only mean you are avoiding any animal-derived food, but it also means that you are completely avoiding the use of any products that are derived from animals.
Where vegetarians solely avoid eating meat, vegans completely remove any animal products and animal derived products from their daily lifestyle – this does not only extend to meat and food sources, but also to non-consumable products such as leather handbags.
In 1806 CE, the vegan lifestyle became more developed when the lifestyle was promoted to be free of dairy products and eggs.
A lot of people are used to consuming meat on an everyday basis, which often leads to the thought that protein and some other nutrients can only be obtained from meat.
SF Gate explains that the following nutrients are important in a vegan diet, and provide excellent examples of food sources where each of them can be obtained:5 • Protein – Protein is essential for the well-being of organs, bones and skin.
In a normal diet, most protein is consumed through meat and animal-derived products, such as dairy and eggs.
This mineral is vital for keeping bones and teeth healthy, and plays other important parts in the body as well.
Even though dairy products cannot be consumed in a vegan diet, it is still possible to obtain high amounts of calcium from spinach, broccoli, tofu, soy milk and kale.
Veganism is not only a diet plan but a lifestyle that promotes the removal of certain products Becoming a vegan can be a rather tough journey if you are used to eating meat, eggs and cheese.

Confirmation Bias: Why You Should Seek Out Disconfirming Evidence

Confirmation Bias: Why You Should Seek Out Disconfirming Evidence.
The desire to be right is the thirst for truth.
Other research has revealed our single-minded need to enforce ideas.
At the conclusion of the study, the majority of participants stuck to their original views, pointing to the data which supported it and discarding that which did not.
Do not read it at all and you will not feel a thing.
When first learning about the existence of confirmation bias, many people deny they are affected.
We are bombarded by information.
They ignore evidence to contradict these conspiratorial ideas, instead of using it to confirm what they already think.
Supporters cling to any evidence to support homeopathy while ignoring that which does not.
There are many cases of scientists interpreting data in a biased manner, or repeating experiments until they achieve the desired result.

How eastern European tech entrepreneurs are drawing global interest

How eastern European tech entrepreneurs are drawing global interest.
(Reuters) — Tech entrepreneurs in central and southeastern European, many of whom already have experience of launching their own businesses, are now having more success at enticing global investors the second time around.
“It’s still a small market but it’s growing fast.
First time founders have gained experience and are now starting their second and third companies with higher ambitions.” Take Warsaw-based medical appointment booking platform DocPlanner, founded by serial Polish entrepreneur Mariusz Gralewski.
The new funding underlines how entrepreneurs such as Gralewski are attracting global investment.
DocPlanner has raised $46 million to date with international investor Target Global, Germany’s ENERN Investments and London-based One Peak Partners leading the latest round.
“We have a first generation of entrepreneurs who quickly sold their companies and then were able to start new ones after building up trust and experience,” Gralewski said.
Last year, central and eastern Europe start-ups raised a total of 177 million euros ($199 million), up from just 15 million euros four years before, according to data from funding research firm Dealroom.co.
But the growth is evidence of an increasing number of global investors looking at the region.
Luciana Lixandru of Accel, which led UiPath’s latest funding round, said seed money was scarce in the region five to seven years ago but now companies can find both start-up capital and bigger funding batches needed to grow globally.

5 Cheap Travel Destinations for Wine Lovers

Among the 10,000 acres dedicated to vineyards, some wineries (bodegas) offer free tours and tastings.
This means that you can walk from tasting to tasting without having to get behind the wheel.
You can usually visit three to four wineries in a five-hour half-day tour that would cost $395.
Another option is to rent a car in Kelowna, the main town in the region, for around $25 a day, and drive yourself out to the wineries.
Robertson, South Africa South Africa is already an inexpensive destination thanks to the strong U.S. dollar, and this also translates to big savings on bottles of wine and wine tours in the country.
Meanwhile, a couple of hours away, Robertson still offers (mostly) free wine tours and tastings, but you do have to organize your own transport to and from each winery.
On top of free wine experiences, bottles of excellent South African reds are extremely inexpensive when bought from the vineyard.
This handy little book lists all of the backpackers lodges throughout the country, as well as some tours and experiences that you can have while traveling in South Africa.
On top of that, the beautiful town of Plovdiv has some of the country’s best wineries right at its doorstep.

Why The British Royal Family Doesn’t Use A Last Name

Why The British Royal Family Doesn’t Use A Last Name.
We know it must be something other than “of Wales” or “of York”, but as a rule the Royals don’t use last names except for times when they must, such as when they’re in school or in the military.
So what’s the deal with the royal last name?
Prior to 1917 members of the British Royal Family didn’t use “common” last names at all, instead using their first name with the name of the house or dynasty they’re part of, such as the House of Tudor or House of Wales.
But in 1917 King George V changed his house name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor, a name derived from Windsor Castle which was changed due to anti-German sentiment.
George V not only changed the dynasty name- he made Windsor the royal family’s surname, thereby doing away with any common last names.
To make matters more complicated Princess Elizabeth made another Royal Family name change when she married Philip Mountbatten and became Queen Elizabeth II, declaring the last name to be Mountbatten-Windsor.
So now descendents of the Mountbatten-Windsors can use Windsor, Mountbatten-Windsor, or if they have a title such as “His Royal Highness Prince” or “Her Royal Highness Princess” they don’t have to use a surname at all.
Now it’s all so clear!

4 Reasons Content Marketers Should Think Like Designers

4 Reasons Content Marketers Should Think Like Designers.
For many brand marketers, design is an afterthought.
That’s because most (tech) brands are started by founders who likely had tech or business backgrounds, who were focused first on building and selling a product/service and attracting customers.
Building a strong brand is crucial to attract those customers, yet many people overlook how valuable design is to building a strong brand, especially in a company’s early days.
But most brands aren’t remarkable—yet.
How do designers think?
Designers care deeply about brands and brand integrity.
They understand better than others what it means to be off brand and on brand.
What to do if you have designers on your team If there are designers in your organization, get them involved in your content marketing efforts up front, and listen to them carefully.
If you want to learn more about thinking like a designer, find out how to apply good design at every level of your organization, how to create audience-first content, and how to put design first.

A Laboratory for Feeling and Time: Pioneering Philosopher Susanne Langer on What Gives Music Its Power and How It Illuminates the Other Arts

A Laboratory for Feeling and Time: Pioneering Philosopher Susanne Langer on What Gives Music Its Power and How It Illuminates the Other Arts.
“Music is at once the most wonderful, the most alive of all the arts… and the most sensual,” Susan Sontag wrote in one of the most beautiful meditations on the power of music.
Langer revisited the subject a quarter century later in her final work, Mind: An Essay on Human Feeling (public library), exploring what makes music different from all other forms of creative expression and how, paradoxically, understanding the source of its power illuminates the other arts.
Langer writes: Music, like language, is an articulate form.
Unlike language, where words function as its primary forms of fixed meaning and association, music allows us to fill its forms with our own meaning.
She writes: What is “created” in a work of art?
What, then, is being created when music is made?
Like its elements, however, this duration is not an actual phenomenon.
Such passage is measurable only in terms of sensibilities, tensions, and emotions; and it has not merely a different measure, but an altogether different structure from practical or scientific time.
It creates an image of time measured by the motion of forms that seem to give it substance, yet a substance that consists entirely of sound, so it is transitoriness itself.

The Doom and Glory of Knowing Who You Are: James Baldwin on the Empathic Rewards of Reading and What It Means to Be an Artist

The Doom and Glory of Knowing Who You Are: James Baldwin on the Empathic Rewards of Reading and What It Means to Be an Artist.
On May 17, 1963, Baldwin appeared on the cover of TIME magazine as part of a major story titled “Nation: The Root of the Negro Problem,” whose lead sentence read: “At the root of the Negro problem is the necessity of the white man to find a way of living with the Negro in order to live with himself.” Although Baldwin’s civil rights advocacy was the focus, the piece shone a sidewise gleam on Baldwin the artist and raised the broader question of the writer’s role in society.
The following week, the May 24 issue of LIFE magazine — which was owned by the same company — built on that cultural momentum with an extensive profile of him by journalist Jane Howard, where under the dated title “Telling Talk from a Negro Writer” Baldwin’s timeless wisdom on life and art unfolds.
Beneath the spectacular subhead “Doom and glory of knowing who you are,” Baldwin — who had read his way from Harlem to literary celebrity — considers the unparalleled empathic gift of reading: You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.
It was Dostoevsky and Dickens who taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who ever had been alive.
Only if we face these open wounds in ourselves can we understand them in other people.
A year after he formulated his abiding ideas on the artist’s role as a disruptor of society, and more than a century after Emerson insisted that “only as far as [people] are unsettled is there any hope for them,” Baldwin considers this vital commitment to generative unsettlement as the central animating force of the creative spirit: An artist is a sort of emotional or spiritual historian.
His role is to make you realize the doom and glory of knowing who you are and what you are.
I’m just trying to outline what the problems are.
Two decades before he shared his advice on being a writer in The Paris Review, Baldwin reflects on the inevitability of the calling: The terrible thing about being a writer is that you don’t decide to become one, you discover that you are one.

Man Serves 5 Years for Rape, Clears His Own Name, Lives out Deferred NFL Dream

Man Serves 5 Years for Rape, Clears His Own Name, Lives out Deferred NFL Dream.
He was a Junior standout who had verbally committed to USC for the fall of 2004.
This photo is from well before that time: But, those who know where this story went in the summer of 2002 also probably have a pretty good idea why Banks’ high school football photos are tough to find.
He claimed innocence, but when faced with a 41-year prison sentence in a case based on his word against the alleged victim, Banks decided to take a 5-year plea deal.
If you’re a fan of our Fact Snacks or you’re at all familiar with this story, then you also know that the story didn’t end there, either: That’s right.
And Banks, who had missed out on playing college ball, was invited to several training camps that summer.
The first one he accepted was from Pete Carroll, the man who would have been his coach at USC, if life had happened as he’d planned.
He went back to training to give it another shot the next year.
Banks ended up signing with the Atlanta Falcons for camp in 2013, but was released when they announced final roster cuts right before the start of the season: If that had been the end of it, Banks would probably have been able to find some decent closure.
Despite the 10 years that had been stolen from him, he’d managed to make it farther than most who dream of playing in the NFL.

Woman Goes From Homelessness to Graduating Harvard.
If you’re ever feeling dismal about your own circumstances, just take a little bit of inspiration from Norma Heath.

RELATED: This 14-Year-old is on His Way to Being the Next Stephen Hawking There, Norma received counseling and treatment, but what motivated her the most was when the volunteers asked her to write down her goals.
Her list consisted of a handful of small things – like regularly attending doctor’s appointments and staying away from bad influences, etc.
– but at the top of the list was her ultimate dream: to graduate from Harvard University.
Then, earlier this week, the 51-year-old woman fulfilled that dream and graduated from the Ivy League school with a degree in psychology.

“It was really gratifying to go back and revisit a lot of these early portraits and see how they’ve stood the test of time which is what I was really trying to do when I photographed the babies all those years ago,” she told HuffPost.
“I was really wanting to create a classic portrait that would be relevant in 20, 30, 40 years.” Courtesy of TASCHEN When reflecting on which photos would make it into the book, Geddes said she knew she wanted to include the photo of a premature baby named Maneesha who was born at 28 weeks.
Geddes said she hopes her book brings happiness to readers, especially given how pervasive terror and hate have become.

How to Download Recordings from Your Netgear Arlo Cameras

How to Download Recordings from Your Netgear Arlo Cameras.
Netgear’s Arlo camera system automatically records video whenever motion is detected, and you can view those video recordings in the Arlo app.
Netgear keeps Arlo camera recordings for up to seven days if you don’t pay for a subscription plan, which is usually more than enough time to watch them before they disappear.
Open up the Arlo app on your phone and tap on the “Library” tab at the bottom.
Select a date toward the top to find a specific recording.
Dates with green dots underneath them indicate days that motion-detected video was recorded (plus, you can’t select dates that don’t have green dots anyway).
Once you find the video that you want to download and save, there are two different methods for downloading.
The second method for downloading a recording is by going back to the main Library screen and tapping on the ellipses next to the video that you want to save.
From there, select “Download”.
As with the first method, the video will take a few moments to download (depending on the size of the video) and will be saved to your phone’s photo gallery, from which you can do whatever you want with it at that point.

Cannes Film Festival to hold moment of silence in wake of Manchester attack

Cannes Film Festival to hold moment of silence in wake of Manchester attack.
The Cannes Film Festival will hold a moment of silence on Tuesday afternoon, following the terror attack in Manchester, England, that killed at least 22 people and injured more than 50 others after an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night.
“This is yet another attack on culture, youth, and joyfulness, on our freedom, generosity, and tolerance, all things the Festival and those who make it possible — the artists, professionals, and spectators — hold dear.” The statement added that a minute of silence would be observed Tuesday at 3 p.m. local time, to show “solidarity with the victims, their families, and the British people.” A photo call and reception at Cannes for Pixar’s latest film, Cars 3, was also reported to be canceled in the wake of the attack, and a planned fireworks display to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the festival has also been called off.
Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said in a statement Tuesday, “The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena.
We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated causing this atrocity.
We would ask people not to speculate on his details or to share names.
There is a complex and wide-ranging investigation underway.” On Tuesday, police said they arrested a 23-year-old man “with regards to last night’s incident,” but did not give further details.
Grande is among the many who have shared condolences in the wake of the attack.
Her team released a statement after the incident, saying, “We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act.
We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders who rushed towards danger to help save lives.

What It Took to Demolish the Most Infamous Room at the Hanford Nuclear Site

What It Took to Demolish the Most Infamous Room at the Hanford Nuclear Site.
“We’re at the end of this 20-year effort to get this complex of buildings taken down,” says Heeter.
By the time parts of the sprawling facility were beginning to be decommissioned in the 1960s, it consisted of thousands of buildings.
Miraculously, the radiation in McCluskey’s body eventually dissipated to safe levels, but until his death in 1987, he was known as the “Atomic Man,” and often had to convince people that it was safe to be around him.
“It was highly contaminated, and plutonium is a flighty material,” says Heeter.
Thanks to this constant need to make things as safe as possible for workers, work at the Hanford Site is anything but speedy.
Despite having been closed since 1976, the McCluskey Room wasn’t fully demolished until March of 2017.
Finally there is the Inner Area.
As work continues, clean-up technicians at the Hanford Site continue to learn.
Heeter says that with the demolition of the McCluskey Room, workers have been able to develop a number of techniques that they will be able to use to empty and deconstruct other highly contaminated parts of the Plutonium Finishing Plant.

How to Play Bluetooth Audio from Only a Specific App on the Galaxy S8

How to Play Bluetooth Audio from Only a Specific App on the Galaxy S8.
Bluetooth 5.0 is so cool.
It lets you do things with Bluetooth audio that have been on our wish lists for a long time—like separate the audio from a specific app (say, Music) and only play it over a Bluetooth connection, keeping other media audio (like navigation sounds) on the phone.
Here’s what it is and how to enable it.
Once you’ve selected both the app and output device, everything should be set.
Just to make sure, however, go ahead and start playing something from the app you selected above, then pull down the notification shade again.
Tap on “Audio Output,” and make sure “My phone” is selected—this will basically ensure that your selected app is the only thing that can send media audio to the Bluetooth device, and all other apps will play through the phone.
Note: Notification audio isn’t the same as media audio, so this will still come through the Bluetooth device.
It’s also worth noting that if at any point you have this particular Bluetooth device connected and want another app (outside of the pre-selected on in Separate Sound App) to play media audio over Bluetooth, you’ll have to select your Bluetooth device as the primary output source.
You can easily do this while the device is playing audio by pulling the notification shade, tapping “Audio output” and selecting your currently-connected Bluetooth device.
