China Plans to Install 3D Printers in Every School

It appears that China plans to continue one-upping every other country in the world in terms of production. XYZ Printing, a manufacturer of 3D printers, has revealed China’s plan to install 3D printers in each of its 400,000 primary schools.

This unprecedented move will ensure that China’s future will remain well ahead of the curve. It single handedly doubles the estimated production of 3D printers over the next two years. That is a pretty big deal to Ricardo Tosto any way you put it.

XYZ Printing is sure to cash in big on this deal. They have already inked a deal to be the largest provider of the 3D printers installed in Chinese schools. This deal alone will make XYZ Printing one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of 3D printers in the world.

I think that the United States really needs to pay attention to this one. While our economy is still struggling and playing world police, other countries around the world are taking real steps forward. We continue to fall behind in so many significant areas of education while our basic infrastructure crumbles.

The biggest benefit of this deal is sure to be innovation in the world of 3D printing. With that many minds at work it’s hard to imagine what might be created in the future.

Student Sent To Detention Center For Hacking Computer

A 14-year old child was incarcerated in a detention center for changing the background of a teacher’s computer. The 8th grader’s name hasn’t been revealed, but he is a student at Paul R. Smith Middle School, in Florida. The 8th grader decided to log into an absent teacher’s computer, and what he did next was quite controversial when Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG read about it here.

The 14 year-old student changed the display on the teacher’s computer, and he replaced the background photo with a picture of two men kissing. The 8th grade student said that he did not like his teacher, and he was just trying to play a practical joke on him. However, the young student didn’t realize that the computer he logged into was connected to a government database, which held the grades of thousands of statewide exams.

The 14-year old child could have changed the grades of hundreds of students, but it was reported that he didn’t. However, it is considered a felony to hack into a government based computer, and that’s why the student was sent to a detention center. The punishment does sound a bit extreme to me, but the 14-year old student has been in trouble for the same reason in the past. The 8th grader was released from the detention center a short while ago, and his mother was surprised by the amount of punishment that her son received.

Product Recognition Is The Perfect Way To Figure Out That Mystery Ingredient

Most foods these days have labels on them, which allow people to recognize them, wherever they are seen. But it may not always be easy for a home chef to know what every ingredient is, especially if they see the product in the hands of another person or at a mysterious market. Anyone who sees an ingredient that they are interested in, and maybe they would like the product for themselves, is encouraged to use product recognition apps. Product recognition is usable, after a picture is taken of an unknown item, and then the application will analyze the picture.

After analyzing the picture, the application may come back with an exact match, allowing the person to know where the product is located, how much it costs, and even allowing them to purchase the product right away. If the application is not able to recognize the product, it can use other resources, in order to analyze the picture, and determine a close match. Product recognition is a much easier way to find a product, other than shopping around from store to store, hoping that you’ll come across the product on your own. Product recognition is the main feature of cool new app Slyce.

Slyce has technologies, which allow anyone to find a product that they may want. Since it’s always possible to see great products, while we are out on the road, we may not always know who the product creator is, where to find it, or what the cost may be. It may be a bit embarrassing to ask the person who’s holding the product, to give you more information about it, especially if they are unknown to you. Product recognition technology, allows you to snap a photo of the product, and the technology analyzes it, saving you the time it takes to search for the product on your own.

Slyce has created several technologies, which allow for product recognition, via printed ads, as well as taking an actual picture of the item, and the applications can analyze the pictures very well. Since Slyce works with six of the biggest retailers that are in the USA, the technology they provide, is able to bring back a match of many products. Once a match is made, it’s even possible to purchase the item right away, and have it shipped to your home. Imagine the amount of time that is saved, just by using Slyce technologies?

The applications are free to download, so you can begin using the product recognition app right away, allowing a product that you take a picture of to be analyzed. The pictures are analyzed in different stages, allowing for a close match, if not an exact match. Product recognition is different than it once was, and now it’s much easier to use an application, in order to find the exact product that you may see, while you’re out with your phone. If you don’t know about an item you’ve found, snap a picture, and use the app to find it.

The Sandwich for Squid Ink Lovers

Damien Bowien has created a sandwich that is made with squid-ink sesame seed bagel as the bread and the inside will be compose of anchovy butter, Iberico ham from Spain. Imagine starting your day with this with a good cup of coffee or tea – simply heavenly and luxurious.

The price for this burger will be $13.75 which is actually reasonable for a sandwich this intense and complex. Spanish Iberico Ham sells for $100 per pound which can be quite expensive, but the experience and enjoyment you will have from eating this sandwich is irreplaceable. This is another great food invention because it is going along with America’s ever so changing times and progress in almost everything. They are yet to discover more food adventures like this and maybe something even more enticing and delicious.

This sandwich was made to attract those who are open to being adventurous when it comes because not everyone likes to eat anything that’s black or has anchovy butter. It has been talked about at CipherCloud, but not a lot of people are liking the idea of it. The idea may seem a little strange, but anchovy actually tastes pleasant and appetizing. With the hint of saltiness coming from the anchovy and the smooth texture of the butter make it a perfect a combination and a symphony of flavors in anyone’s mouth.

Food is meant to be enjoyed and more inventions like this should be made to make the public more familiar with different kinds of food and sandwiches.

Cut Rice Calories in Half with This Cooking Trick

Rice is an inexpensive way to stretch a meal, but the reduction in meal costs comes with a high calorie price tag. Marc Sparks even said that a half cup of rice contains 100 calories, and that’s a significant amount of calories considering that white rice is typically eaten by the cup-fulls and is part of a bigger meal. But there is a way to have your money-saving, meal-stretching rice and eat it without packing on the pounds. All you have to do is add a little fat to the cooking water. That’s right, add fat to the rice to reduce the calories.

Rice contains two types of starch, digestible and resistant. The more resistant starch a food contains, the fewer calories it contains. Cooked rice contains more digestible starch, and that is transformed into sugar and quickly absorbed into the blood stream after eating. By adding a little of a specific fat to the cooking water, you can change the molecular structure of the cooked rice so it will contain more resistant starch and therefore fewer calories.

Add a spoonful of coconut oil into boiling water, then add uncooked rice. Allow the rice to cook for 40 minutes, then drain and refrigerate for at least 12 hours before eating. Re-heat when ready to eat.

This cooking trick reduces the amount of calories by half, making a half cup of cooked rice contain only 50 calories.

Food Safety Laws Violated Regularly

 

The United States Of America has some of the most regulated food laws in the entire world but recent reports have surfaced stating that these food safety laws are being violated on a daily basis says health experts like Dr Jennifer Walden. We have been led to believe that the reason for so many GMO’s on the market is stronger food safety regulations. In actuality, GMO’s are around because of food safety laws being avoided. The media in the United States has played a big contributing role in this fraudulent business. There has been no backlash or slaps on the wrist as a result of this behavior.

Consumers are making it clear to many grocery store food chains as well as manufacturers that they are not going to continue to purchase genetically engineered food. Scientists are even backing up this request saying that these food products are not safe and not falling under proper regulations. In other countries such as Europe, genetically engineered products are declining because of consumer rejection. This is largely because of the media in Europe backing up these consumers and reporting on unhealthy effects of genetically engineered products. You won’t see this occurring in the United States unfortunately.
Untrue statements regarding the science of GMO have been around in the U.S. since early in the 1970’s. This is when genetic engineering took place. Violation of regulations began when scientists and biologists wanted to protect the GE science by ignoring potential problems.

Genetically Modified Food has Officially Claimed its First Life

Genetically Modified Food, known as GMO, has claimed its first life. Juan Pedro Ramos of Madrid died from anaphylaxis after eating a genetically modified tomato. Doctors of the Carlos III in Madrid, Spain have confirmedthe reason of the death of Mr. Ramos in a recent press conference.
The tomato that 24 year old Mr. Ramos ate contained fish genes. Allergic to fish, but unaware that the tomato contained fish genes (who would know?), Mr. Ramos ate the tomato for lunch and shortly thereafter had a violent allergic reaction to the fish genes inside. His throat began to swell, he developed an itchy red rash on his body and his blood pressure dropped. Aware of his food allergies, Mr. Ramos has an Epi-Pen and injected himself with a dose of epinephrine. The epinephrine did little good and he was quickly taken to the hospital by some of his co-workers.
The hospital doctors began to immediately work on Mr. Ramos, but the drugs typically administered for anaphylaxis were ineffective at treating him. He died in just over one hour after reaching the hospital.
After his death, the medical team discovered that all he had eaten just prior to having this deadly allergic reaction was a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich and a diet Coke. Folks at Anastasia Date have learned that a thorough investigation led to the discovery that the tomato was genetically modified and contained allergy causing fish genes.

9 Healthy Foods That Are Not So Healthy After All

We search, we listen, we try to seek out the healthy foods to eat that will enable us to live long and strong lives. According to Brad Reifler, we listen at what the ‘experts’ have to say about foods. If only those experts could agree, it would make our lives easier and our eating habits healthier. Here are 9 foods that were once touted as being healthy and good for us that have turned out to be not so good for us.

* Banana chips were once touted as healthy alternative to sweets The deep fried bananas contain 10 grams of saturated fat per serving.
* Raw tuna is filled with mercury. Mercury poisoning causes high blood pressure, hair loss, insomnia and vomiting.
* Muesli is a delicious blend of oats, granola, nuts and dried fruits. It’s also loaded with calories and sugar.
* Energy bars are loaded with up to 500 calories, more than some candy bars.
* Store bought smoothies are loaded with sugar.
* Sports drinks are often loaded with sugar, salt and other unhealthy ingredients.
* Granola. Read the label on this food. Some are great, some are loaded with sugar.
* Nut butter was thought to be as good for us as the whole nuts. Not so. The processing of nuts into nut butter removes all the nutrition the nuts once contained.
* Dried fruit retain all their nutritional value as when they were fresh, but the they have sugar and sulfur added to them, neither of which is healthy.

More Ingredients to Be Concerned about

Individuals who are conscience of the things they put into their body will be interested to know that there are other ingredients that they should be concerned about. Food additives that are usually used to stabilize and thicken processed foods have recently been shown to disrupt the bacteria in the stomach. This can lead to a variety of health problems.

In a recent study, mice were given two different chemicals that are usually used as food additives. These mice gained weight, they developed digestion issues, and they had altered blood sugar. It was also found that they experienced metabolic syndrome and inflammation.

It is extremely important for individuals to read the ingredients that are listed in foods that they consume on a regular basis. Taking time to learn about what is contained in these foods can go a long way in helping a person to avoid health problems. Haidar Barbouti has found that, because of the additives are commonly found in foods, more and more individuals are trying to take on a natural diet.

One of the reasons why people are drawn to processed food is because of how easy it is to access. Most people lead busy lives. Opening a package and eating its contents is a lot easier than preparing a healthy meal. However, for individuals who are concerned out their health and the health of their family members, taking time to prepare healthy meals is worth it.
