3 Amazing Energy Bars You Can Whip Up In Your Kitchen | Collective-Evolution

Have you been to the energy bar section of the grocery store lately? There are literally hundreds to choose from, and many contain ingredients that we don’t necessarily want to eat (or worse – can’t pronounce!). While a few undesirable components won’t kill us, things like ‘natural flavors’ and ‘citric acid’ aren’t whole food items we’d keep in the pantry. We want to keep our food as simple and as close to nature as possible so that our bodies can use our energy reserves for regeneration rather than prolonged digestion.

Usually, energy bars are more of a grab-and-go ‘fast food”, but it doesn’t have to be this way! Instead of spending $2.29 on one serving (that’s been sitting in a package for a while), you can make a whole batch of fresh bars yourself, right at home. This will save you money and cut down on the plastic waste that packaged products tend to accumulate. Plus, you’re guaranteed to love these recipes!

Bootstrap 3 Adobe Illustrator Template – Easy to Use for Large Devices Desktops, Medium Devices Laptops and Small Devices Tablets


Explanation of Bootstrap 3 Div sizing

I’ve made an Adobe Illustrator Template that should help you understand how the Columns Work in Bootstrap 3 across the different responsive sizes. I created this illustrator template to share with a designer that couldn’t quite grasp how the Bootstrap resizes a column based on the media query.

What are the sizes for Bootstrap 3 Columns?

Large Devices
Width: 1170px wide
Columns: @97px
Left and Right Gutter: 15px each

Medium Devices
Width: 970px wide
Columns: @ 81px
Left and Right Gutter 15px each

Small Devices Tablet
Width: 750px wide
Columns: @ 62px
Left and Right Gutter: 15px each

In all of the above sizes, Bootstrap uses 12 columns.

Large Device
Medium Device
Small Device


The column widths are approximations used to help you design. This is because the actual math is based on percentage.

Keep in mind that the column height is automatically adjusted by the content within the div.
So these samples would most likely be much taller.

A step toward a potential anti-aging drug | KurzweilAI

According to a new study published in Science Translational Medicine, researchers have tested a potential anti-aging drug called everolimus (AKA RAD001) — an analog (version) of the drug rapamycin (sirolimus)*.

In previous research, rapamycin extended the life span of mice by 9 to 14%, even when treatment was initiated late in life, and it improved a variety of aging-related conditions in old mice, including tendon stiffening, cardiac dysfunction, cognitive decline, and decreased mobility.

Yudkowsky – Bayes’ Theorem

…I’m not that smart – – –  time to smartify…

Bayes’ Theorem
for the curious and bewildered;
an excruciatingly gentle introduction.

Your friends and colleagues are talking about something called “Bayes’ Theorem” or “Bayes’ Rule”, or something called Bayesian reasoning.  They sound really enthusiastic about it, too, so you google and find a webpage about Bayes’ Theorem and…

10 Vegan Athletes That Prove You Don’t Need Meat to Compete | One Green Planet

My Peoples… :)

Athletes in every sport stand as examples of strength, discipline and sheer physical power. Their ability to perform the tasks necessary to lift obscene amounts of weight, fight an opponent or run incredible distances is truly awe inspiring. Seriously, sometimes it feels like getting the lid off of the almond butter is impossible, the strength is takes to clean and jerk 500 pounds must be staggering!

With great athletic prowess comes a host of perceptions about what these people are like and whatfuels their abilities. The general consensus tends to lean toward viewing athletes as meat guzzling, animal protein junkies and, to be fair, those athletes certainly exist. But just like any generality, it doesn’t apply to everyone! There are plenty of athletes that are not only powered entirely by plants, they dominate in their field as well.

These unstoppable forces of nature are awesome examples of the power of plant based foods. Easily supplying the nutritional requirements to fuel our bodies, even the most elite athletes are able to survive and thrive without consuming animal products to do it. But, don’t take our word for it! Check out the laundry list of accomplishments these talented and dedicated folks have racked up, all while being powered by plants.

How a Mysterious Body Part Called Fascia Is Challenging Medicine

Fascia is a web of fibrous tissue that permeates the body, but is it really the “Cinderella Tissue”that new age therapists, Rolfers, and yoga instructors suggest? The fascial system is still a medical mystery. But that could soon change, thanks to an unlikely alliance between researchers and alternative therapists.
