Through a glass, clearly One of the most instantly recognizable features of glass is the way it reflects light. But a new way of creating surface textures on glass, developed by researchers at MIT, virtually eliminates reflections, producing glass that is almost unrecognizable because of its absence of glare — and whose surface causes water droplets to bounce right off, like tiny rubber balls. The new “multifunctional” glass, based on surface nanotextures that produce an array of conical features, is self-cleaning and resists fogging and glare, the researchers say. Ultimately, they hope it can be made using an inexpensive manufacturing process that could be applied to optical devices, the screens of smartphones and televisions, solar panels, car windshields and even windows in buildings. Photovoltaic panels, Park explains, can lose as much as 40 percent of their efficiency within six months as dust and dirt accumulate on their surfaces.

WriteThat.Name’s New Chrome Extension Updates Your Address Book Or CRM With Contact Info Found Online After a little bit of a rough start, the automatic address book updating service WriteThat.Name has become one of my preferred “set it and forget it” tools for keeping things organized. Built by Paris-based Kwaga, WriteThat.Name is one of those under-the-radar technologies that doesn’t get a lot of media attention, but is slowly approaching profitability with more than 40,000 paying users and revenue growth of more than 15 percent month-over-month. For those who missed it the first time around, the company last year launched a service that tackles an area in need of more attention and solutions: the address book. Initially, I’ll admit I was not thrilled with Kwaga’s product.

Are Your Skin Problems an Autoimmune Issue? – Answers, Solutions, plus a New Primal Book! Today’s guest post is from my good friend Tara Grant, truly a budding superstar in the Primal/paleo/ancestral health movement. Tara started out as a success story (“Tons of Doctors and No Solution” – one of the most visited stories in our entire archive; and also on the pages of the The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation), and has leveraged her Primal success (she went from 245 lbs to 159 lbs in around 18 months in ’09-’10) like few others: She’s a veteran PrimalCon presenter, has delivered numerous Primal Blueprint Transformation Seminars, and recently completed a remarkable book called The Hidden Plague, which details the painful and poorly understood skin condition of Hidradenitis supprativa (HS). My Story I have been sick for as long as I can remember—except that I didn’t actually realize I was sick until I was in my mid-thirties.

5 Animals That Are Terrifyingly Hard to Kill The lungfish is one of the oldest species living today. Its lineage traces directly to a species alive right after the breakup of Pangaea--which Wikipedia tells us was the original super-continent and not, as we have for years assumed, some sort of tragically disbanded Dinosaur Speedmetal group. Nor is there a hipster version. Evidence-based program: blood & biomarker analysis, research, algorithm, scientific team Take a closer look at how InsideTracker works It starts with your blood...

The Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center The high fat, low carbohydrate ketogenic diet has been managed through the Pediatric Epilepsy team at Johns Hopkins since its beginnings in the 1920s. We are the premiere center in the world for clinical and research expertise regarding the ketogenic diet, having enrolled hundreds of children on the ketogenic diet and the modified Atkins diet. After medical review to determine if it is an appropriate treatment, we admit approximately four children for the diet monthly. Patients ranging from infants to adolescents are admitted for a four-day period during which the diet is started and education provided. We are also actively investigating and using the modified Atkins diet for epilepsy in clinical trials for both children and adults. Epilepsy Diet for Adults

Mike's Story September 10th, 1945 finds a strapping (but tender) young rooster pecking through the dust of Fruita, Colorado. The unsuspecting bird had never looked so delicious as he did that, now famous, day. Clara Olsen was planning on featuring the plump chicken in the evening meal. Husband Lloyd Olsen was sent out, on a very routine mission, to prepare the designated fryer for the pan. Nothing about this task turned out to be routine.
