Interesting design..

I'm pretty on the fence about this design. This build was done by Ryan MacPherson from Auckland, NZ. I think the only thing I really like about it is the rear wheel, everything else looks pretty odd (front wheel) or pretty bland (the frame and components). What do you guys think?

Five Weight-Loss Myths: Busted
Is your New Year's resolution to shed a few pounds off this year? Well let me make your life easier. Weight loss can be so complex and utterly confusing because there is simply too much conflicting information out there. Here are six myths that will help you have an easier time shedding those pounds. 1. Myth: No Sweets Before Noon Research has found that participants who ate a 600-calorie, carb- and protein-rich breakfast that included dessert (such as ice cream or chocolate) lost more weight over four months than a group that ate a low-carb morning meal. Avoid calorie bombs like huge chocolate chip muffins, and opt for something like a milkshake with vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, and a little chocolate, or a banana muffin with almond butter. 2. Myth: Added Fiber Keeps You Full High-fiber foods (like fruits and veggies) take longer to digest and hold more water so they seem to fill you up and aid weight loss. The results of a study conducted by the University of Minnesota concluded that added fiber had no effect on fullness and caused more bloating than the low-fiber bars. To quell hunger, stick with foods naturally high in fiber instead of added fiber foods. Use whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables. 3. Myth: Carbs Lead to Weight Gain According to a study published in April 2012, participants who ate a low-calorie diet high in whole wheat for 12 weeks lost more fat than a group that ate a low-calorie diet high in refined wheat. The whole grains are more filling and that likely participants to feel more full after eating whole wheat. Stick with the whole grain pasta. It may not taste the same as refined pasta, but at least you don't have to give it up all together. 4. Myth: You Should Only Use Zero-Calorie Sweeteners Sucralose, aspartame and stevia may be appealing choices for those who are looking to shed a pound or two. However, according to a joint study by the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association, the scientific evidence connecting zero-calorie sweeteners with long-term weight loss in inconclusive. You have to remember that overcompensation is a problem. Just because you skip a sugary soda at lunch doesn't mean that you can have extra at dinner. You will negate any calorie-saving benefit! 5. Myth: Add More Long Rides Cyclists are always talking about going on longer rides is always better, especially when it comes to weight loss. A study in 2012 had overweigh participants do 30 or 60 minutes of moderate exercise a day. Surprisingly, the participants who exercised less lost more weight during the 13-week study. Those who exercised longer ended up eating more throughout the day than the moderate-exercise group. In other words, the longer they exercised the more they overcompensated in food for it.

Product Photography - DIY
Make your trinkets look legit in photos--that you happen to take yourself. With just a few tools (that you already own), you can take professional-looking product photos of just about anything that's small. I found this DIY hack on LifeHack.org. You can read the full article here if you'd like. Photo credit: Canon/Little Visuals via littlevisuals.co What you need: Camera Laptop Shiny black surface (like a tablet that's not turned on) Piece of white paper Small light 2 Binder clips (And any item you want to photograph, like a perfume bottle) Get Started 1. Google search for "bokeh" in images. Find an interesting picture you'd like to use as your background. Download the image and open to fill the screen. 2. Lay the item with the shiny black surface, (like a tablet) over your keyboard 3. Angle the screen at a slightly forward to prevent a glare. 4. If need be, lower the brightness setting on your laptop so it's not too bright. 5. Place object (you want to photograph) on the shiny surface in front of the screen. 6. Clip the sheet of paper at two ends using binder clips. 7. Placement of the paper should be at the left corner of your laptop keyboard. 8. Using a small lamp, shine the light through the paper to the object. 9. Face camera straight on in front of laptop. 10. Take photo. This is what your ordinary perfume bottle looks like when you're finished. Photo editing software no longer needed. TIP Make sure your shiny black surface is clean and free of debris, finger prints and lint. A compressed can of air can eliminate dust and lint very well.
