  • Many of us know that feeling of waking up, headache in tow, struggling to remember what we said and did after that extra drink the night before. And then suddenly, the memories vividly resurface. Alcohol disinhibits us, making us say and do things that we’d otherwise keep under wraps. People will often drink to gain “Dutch courage” in a demanding situation. Many of us can understand the appeal of having a drink before a blind date or a social event – it can help to calm our nerves and cultivate confidence. That’s because alcohol has a depressant effect which makes us feel more relaxed. Of course, alcohol’s effects aren’t all positive. We’ve all adopted nicknames for the characters that we become after a few drinks. Maybe you’re the “happy drunk”, or perhaps you’ve built a reputation for being the “aggressive drunk” who takes everything the wrong way after a pint. The relationship between alcohol and antisocial behavior is well documented – both anecdotally and in research. Plenty of arguments and fights stem from someone having had one too many. Scientists believe we behave like this when drunk because we misinterpret social situations and lose our sense of empathy. In essence, once we start slurring words and stumbling, our ability to understand or share the emotions of others goes out the door, too. Drunk people lose their ability to interpret what the people around them are feeling. Dusan Petkovic/Shutterstock Own your drunken decisions If someone has done something wrong while under the influence of alcohol, we tend to give them a “get out of jail free card”, rather than hold them accountable for their actions. We also extend these excuses to ourselves. But in our research, we’ve attempted to paint a clearer picture of how drinking alcohol, empathy, and moral behavior...
  • For a lot of developers, the last thing they want to do after being at work all day is to write more code. Staring at a screen all day does take a toll on you. Once you’ve had a chance to go for a walk and eat something, you might consider starting a personal project — and it doesn’t have to be anything too complicated. There might be a framework that you want to learn or a library you’ve been interested in. It doesn’t even have to be related to your job. This is your time to learn something that you actually care about and work on something that sounds fun to you. Doing personal projects will make you a better developer and here are a few ways how. You get to experiment without judgement Nobody has to approve your pull requests or even see your code. It doesn’t matter if it’s pretty or not because it’s just you playing around. You might want to start working with VR and you just want your little app to run. The code can be as ugly as you want and no one else will ever know. This is like when you let kids color outside of the lines. You start to think and see things differently. Plus you get to try different things in the process. You could start learning a new framework and realize that you don’t like it and stop immediately. There aren’t any consequences in your personal projects. You learn how to handle more of the application lifecycle Since this is a project that only you will be working on, you get to make all the decisions. That means you’ll learn about software architecture because you’ll have to set up the structure of the project. You’ll learn how to...
  • Your pantry either looks like this or like the place where expired food goes to die. Which one is it? (monicore via Pixabay/) There are basically two kinds of people in the world: those who fervently abide by expiration dates, and those who don’t. The pantries of the former usually look more like a grocery store—neat and tidy. Those of the latter, however, are filled with stuff that could be exhibited in a museum, hoarded from time immemorial. Deciding who’s right and who’s wrong depends on what type of person you are, but we’re here to tell you there is a scientific answer to the burning question: Is this ok to eat? Spoilage vs. safety All food can be classified in three large groups: perishables, semi-perishables and non-perishables. The first category has a limited shelf life and must be stored in a temperature-controlled environment. Foods such as meat, milk, vegetables, and some cheeses fall into this category. Semi-perishables, once opened, can have a shelf life of six months to a year, if handled correctly. These include grains, flours, and dried fruit. Finally, non-perishable foods are those that do not spoil. Ever. That could be canned food, sugar, salt, honey, or dried beans. Knowing when to get rid of perishable foods is pretty easy—they look bad, smell worse, and usually have fungus, mold, or other types of microorganisms growing all over them. With non-perishables, it’s equally easy—they just don’t spoil. You can basically have them forever and they will always be good to go. But things are more complicated with semi-perishables. It really depends on the product. “Most food that’s in a pantry has been manufactured such that it’s not going to support a lot of microbial growth,” says Renee Boyer, a professor at the Department of Food Science and Technology...
  • 10 minute email — disposable email addressing, also Called temp email or Email, refers to an approach in which there is a email address that is unique used for thing or every single contact. The advantage is that if anybody compromises the speech or utilises it into connection with email abuse, the address operator may cancel (or”dispose” of) it without affecting some of the other contacts. Such Disposable addresses are often Supplied by a service business (paid or free ) that forwards email from the disposable email to the genuine speech, but email sub-addressing methods might also be utilized to offer you a subset of comparable benefits. Is 10 minute email safe? Owners discuss a disposable email After with Each contact/entity. Thus, in the event the throwaway email should change, only 1 thing must be upgraded. By comparison, the practice of giving recipients exactly the email address suggests that if that speech changes recipients that are legitimate need to upgrade their records — a dull process and to receive notification of the change. Furthermore, because accessibility was narrowed to a contact, That thing then becomes the most likely point of compromise for any spam which accounts receives (see”filtering” below for exceptions). This lets users determine firsthand the trustworthiness of those people with whom they talk their own TEMP MAILs. “Safe” 10 minutes mails who have not been Abused could be forwarded to an actual email accounts, whereas messages sent to”compromised” TEMP MAIL so might be sent to a certain folder, sent to the garbage, stored for spam filtering, or returned as undeliverable if the TEMP MAIL is deleted. Further, Since 10 minute emails serve for a layer of indirection Between the sender and receiver, in case the 10 minute email user’s Real address changes, because of moving from a school,...
