The Most Common Cooking Mistakes

Monday, February 27, 2012

Found a great article today and thought I would share
Our Most Common Cooking Mistakes

Every cook, being human, errs, bungles, botches, and screws up in the kitchen once in a while. If you have not "caramelized" fruit in salt rather than sugar, you have not suffered the most embarrassing mistake made by one of our editors. We did not have to look much farther than our staff―and their encounters with readers, friends, and relatives―to compile a list of 25 common, avoidable culinary boo-boos.

A new fitness gaget

Sunday, February 26, 2012

I sent an e-mail to whoever is in charge of the Spark blogs about a new fitness tracking gaget I saw today but like all the rest of the items I send to them to check out, I doubt anyone will read it.
Nike Fuelband looks interesting,
Nike+ Fuelband is a slightly different beast, its goal is to provide one simple measurement for every kind of activity. The Fuelband doesn't just count steps. It doesn't tick off miles. What's unique about Nike+ Fuelband is that it uses "oxygen kinetics" to figure out the amount of oxygen you're using and then translates that input/output into a "universal currency" named Nikefuel. Everyone, whether you're a basketball player or a football player or a life player or a PC game player, is measured with Nikefuel. The more active things you do in a day means the more Nikefuel you earn in a day. Nike says that they've correlated oxygen intake with specific fitness activities and then created a way to translate it to Nikefuel. Basically, it's a smart and Nike-branded algorithm that brings everyone onto the same unit of measurement.

Forget 8 Hours of Sleep: Try 4 Hours, Twice

Friday, February 24, 2012

Heard this on the radio, thought I would share
Eight hours of sleepódoctor's orders, right? Perhaps not. A number of recent studies have pointed to a human tendency to sleep in two sessions of about four hours each, with an hour or two between, the BBC reports. A researcher in the 1990s put subjects in darkness 14 hours a day in a month-long study.

Just had to show the box it came in
Mind you, I AM NOT IN THE USA so this is what the box looked like
