Yahoo The 9 Habits of Naturally Thin People They've developed these healthy food and fitness behaviors--and you can too. "In countries with low obesity rates, people still eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner and live life in between," says Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan. Call them picky eaters, food snobs, or whatever else, but… Find NFL Games with PlayOn/Roku As valuable as I've found it to cut the cord and switch to using a Roku player, it's no secret to sports fans like myself that live sports such as the NFL are hard to come by. Fortunately, if you have the PlayOn channel, you can actually find your favorite NFL team's games without paying an additional fee. The streams won't be in high definition, but it's sure worth watching, especially if your favorite team was rarely ever featured on paid cable or your local NFL affiliates! Install PlayOn Scripts The first thing to do after purchasing PlayOn (more details about that in this article) is to go to the PlayOn Scripts website. This is where users are allowed to create "scripts" that stream their channels through PlayOn and ultimately your Roku.

Adobe After Effects CS4 * Continuously rasterize a layer containing vector graphics When you import vector graphics, After Effects automatically rasterizes them. However, if you want to scale a layer that contains vector graphics above 100%, then you need to continuously rasterize the layer to maintain image quality. You can continuously rasterize vector graphics in layers based on Illustrator, SWF, EPS, and PDF files. Continuously rasterizing causes After Effects to rasterize the file as needed based on the transformation for each frame.

Create Your Own Photo E-books Using Pholium For The iPad Ever since its initial release, the iPad has been for me the best mobile tool for showcasing photos. While several basic iPad image programs, including the built-in Photo app, are great for photo management and quick slide shows, the latest version of the Pholium iPad app includes tools for actually creating ebooks. Though Apple’s iPhoto app for the iPad allows you to create photo journals for online display, Pholium provides a pretty straight forward approach to import photos and use templates to create customized e-books that can be shared online or downloaded by other Pholium app users via iCloud or Dropbox. Adding Photos to the Gallery After you register an account with Pholium, the app opens in landscape orientation. To create a book, you tap the “Add” bottom in the menu bar to import photos from your iPad Photo library or one of your albums.

Netflix Movies On Streaming That Are Actually Good: 7 Tools To Help You Find Them On these long, cold days of winter -- and with the menacing Nemo headed for the East Coast -- many of you are probably planning on curling up with a loved one and a laptop to watch a movie or two on Netflix's streaming section. But once you cycle through the classics -- "Office Space," "Oldboy," the first two seasons of "Arrested Development" -- you might find yourself desperately searching for another Instant movie or television show to make your frigid, bed-ridden hours pass by just a little bit more quickly. If Netflix's recommendations are getting stale, I've collected seven websites you can visit to find some fresh inspiration and flicks you otherwise might not have have found on the service. Because, really, how many times can you re-watch "Breakfast at Tiffany's" before you're ready for something new? 1.

What To Watch On Netflix, Part 3: Overlooked Gems Now that I've got the Classics and the Pretty Good Bets lists out of the way, welcome to my list of Netflix's Overlooked Gems. This was the Netflix recommendation roster I had the most fun compiling (it's not every day that having watched so much cult TV comes in handy). Adding to the fun: This list comes with a cherry on top, in the form of some exciting news. HuffPost TV can exclusively reveal that all five seasons of the much-loved NBC spy drama "Chuck" will be available in the U.S. for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 1. "Chuck" is a good poster child for this list, which is all about shows with fervent but smallish fan bases -- these are all shows that, for one reason or another, deserve wider attention but in many cases weren't big hits when they first aired. Once again, here are the caveats for all three lists:

Canada Denies Patent For Drug, So US Pharma Company Demands $100 Million As Compensation For 'Expropriation' An increasingly problematic aspect of free trade agreements (FTAs) is the inclusion of investor-state provisions that essentially allow companies -- typically huge multinationals -- to challenge the policies of signatory governments directly. The initial impulse behind these was to offer some protection against the arbitrary expropriation of foreign investments by less-than-democratic governments. But now corporations have realised that they can use the investor-state dispute mechanism to challenge all kinds of legitimate but inconvenient decisions in any signatory nation. Here's a good example of how this provision is being invoked to contest a refusal by Canadian courts to grant a patent on a drug, as explained on the Public Citizen site: The claim that denying a patent is somehow an "expropriation" of property is pretty extraordinary. The entire approach is clearly biased towards companies and against the national governments, so the following facts will come as no surprise:

Methodological naturalists limit their scientific research to the study of natural causes, because any attempts to define causal relationships with the supernatural are never fruitful, and result in the creation of scientific "dead ends" and God of the gaps-type hypotheses. To avoid these traps scientists assume that all causes are empirical and naturalistic; which means they can be measured, quantified and studied methodically. However, this assumption of naturalism need not extend beyond an assumption of methodology. This is what separates methodological naturalism from philosophical naturalism - the former is merely a tool and makes no truth claim; while the latter makes the philosophical - essentially atheistic - claim that only natural causes exist.
