How to Deal With Digestive Difficulties on a Plant-Based Diet

For the most part, a plant-based diet is a great way to enhance your digestive system since it’s rich in fiber, water, vitamins, minerals and lacking in hard-to-digest foods such as red meat, dairy, and eggs. However, there are some people like myself who have digestive difficulties and might find a plant-based diet challenging at first. We’d like to assure you that there are some simple ways to deal with digestive difficulties such as low stomach acid, indigestion, IBS, and general bloating that make things easier. Remember that everyone is different and the best way to find the foods that work well for you are to test the waters out yourself. While one food may trigger problems for you, someone else with digestive struggles may tolerate it fine. When I started eating a plant-based diet, I plunged in with excitement and learned a few tips for helping my digestion in the process. Here are some tips I’ve learned that you can experience and enjoy for yourself too: 1. Start With the Basics While there are amazing and fun vegan products on the market that replace animal products such as cheese, ice cream, milk, and meat – the truth is that these processed versions can be taxing to the digestive system at first unless you’re used to eating them. Many are often filled with certain fillers, gums, and stabilizers that many people find are hard to digest. Instead of consuming vegan processed foods, just start with the basics and go for more g...  

Android 4.4 KitKat

Google’s share of the mobile space is HUGE. Android is now the most used mobile OS on the planet by a considerable margin – over 60% if you’re wondering. A lot of Google’s success with Android is to do with its distribution model and the sheer number of devices it comes inside – all markets, price points, sizes and shapes are covered. Here it’s very much quantity vs. MEGA quantities, as both are quality platforms.  Android, for instance, is open-source (in a manner of speaking) and is used by many, the LG, Samsung and HTC’s of the world, to name just a few. Apple’s iOS, on the other hand, is closed source and ONLY used inside products Apple builds. No one else gets a looks in. Differences aside, iOS and Android represent the two most popular choices of OS on the planet. And here we’re going to take a look at how the latest commercially available build of Android – KitKat (4.4.4) – compares to Apple’s upcoming iOS 8.  Android 4.4 KitKat Truth be told, Android 4.4 KitKat was not a massive overhaul to Google’s existing formula – Google has largely already established its visual style and features in previous builds and is now gradually tweaking little details here and there over time. As a result, you could be forgiven for not noticing a difference at first, anywhere between Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean and the new 4.4 KitKat. ...  

6 Ways New MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Can Improve Baseball

by Wendy Thurm Posted on August 21, 2014 at 10:47 am Share this: "6 Ways New MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Can Improve Baseball" Newly-elected MLB commissioner Rob Manfred throws out the first pitch at the Little League World Series on Wednesday. CREDIT: AP Last week, Major League Baseball’s 30 owners elected Rob Manfred as the new commissioner of baseball. Manfred will succeed Bud Selig, who will retire in January. Manfred has worked at MLB since 1998, first as executive vice president of labor relations and, most recently, as chief operating officer. Selig backed Manfred’s bid. The election was more contentious than Manfred and Selig would have liked, after Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf proffered Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner as as an alternative to Manfred. Reinsdorf reportedly believes that Manfred has been — and will continue to be — too soft on the players’ union, particularly on economic issues. Reinsdorf has been hankering for a hard salary cap since at least 1994, when he and Selig masterminded the players’ strike that cut short the season and nearly killed the league. Reinsdorf also feared losing power within the ownership ranks after Selig’s departure; he wanted a commissioner who would feel beholden to him. That move appears to have backfired. For all of Reinsdorf’s concerns about Manfred not being tough enough with the players’ union, MLB has become a...  

We Talked To The Experts — Here's How To Ensure A Lucrative Crowdfunding ...

Charles Eshelman/Getty ImagesKickstarter CEO and co-founder Yancey Strickler.There was a time not too long ago when there was no easy way to raise money online, aside from urging friends to send you money over PayPal. In 2007, Indiegogo was founded, followed two years later by Kickstarter. And today, the crowdfunding floodgates have opened. You can put your money behind anything from a bowl of potato salad to a Reading Rainbow relaunch. But running a crowdfunding campaign can be a big time commitment, especially in terms of marketing. There are promotional videos to film, social media outreach to do, and PR emails to distribute to the press. If you're busy, you might not have time or the skillset to do it all on your own. Enter the crowdfunding consultants. A Google search yields dozens of results, names of companies and individuals offering their strategic services to help you with your Kickstarter or Indiegogo project. They'll provide handwritten press releases, media kits, consultations, and email templates. Some will even provide you with a list of journalists and bloggers who have written about crowdfunding campaigns similar to yours. Most consultants have experience in marketing or public relations, but they have plenty of useful advice for anyone trying to launch a crowdfunding campaign — whether you're a seasoned veteran by now or it's your first project, here's some valuable advice to ensure your crowdfunding effort gets off the ground.

Nintendo Loses Third Party Staple As 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' Will ...

It’s been a rough string of headlines for Nintendo as of late, and the company is facing serious trouble trying to hang on to what little third party support the Wii U had at launch. First, it was Ubisoft announcing that despite two different games being released across the two console generations this year, no Assassin’s Creed title would be released for Wii U in 2014. And now, Activision has revealed that despite a five-platform release including two Xboxes, two PlayStations and PC, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will also not come to Wii U. Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey was the one to break the news on Twitter, saying that it was entirely an “Activision decision” to skip Nintendo’s console. He cites the major focus of Advanced Warfare to be Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with the last-gen versions presumably not quite as pressing, despite a wide player-base. With 80M+ PS3s and 360s apiece out in the wild, you can bet that COD will be released for last-gen for a while yet. Though it’s not a priority in a technological sense, as the series pushes the bounds of what the new consoles are capable of. Activision has been slowly distancing themselves from Nintendo for a while with the Call of Duty series. Call of Duty: Ghosts, Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 all had to wait months to be confirmed as coming to the Wii U or Wii, long after all the other platform versions were announced. Now, it seems that the Wii U just isn’...  

The Renaissance Of Baseball's Ivy League Control Pitchers

In an era when Major League Baseball scouts have become increasingly obsessed with radar guns and pitching velocity, a pair of Ivy League control pitchers — Kyle Hendricks and Chris Young — have emerged as two of the game’s top hurlers despite throwing fastballs that often top out below 90 miles per hour.  Think that’s a fluke?  Two more Ivy League finesse pitchers, Matthew Bowman and Brent Suter, are experiencing similar success in the high-level minor leagues. Over the past two months, Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks has quickly emerged as the poster boy for the renaissance of the Ivy League control pitcher — smart, crafty, and in control.   In his first seven Major League starts, Hendricks has posted a record of five wins and one loss, with a minuscule 1.48 Earned Run Average.  Hendricks has only allowed more than one earned run once in his Major League career — in his big-league debut at Cincinnati on July 10.  Since that date, he’s been as stingy with runs as any hurler in the game. Make no doubt, Kyle Hendricks’s fastball does not light up the radar gun.  By Major League standards, it is not even likely to be described as “fast.”  According to ESPN ESPN, Hendricks’s average fastball travels at just 87.2 miles per year.  But his ability to mix his pitches and throw strikes has led to great success. An economics major at Dartmouth Colle...  

This Week in Overreactions: Alex Gordon, the best player in baseball

Is Alex Gordon the best player in baseball? WAR says so. (USATSI)It's time for another installment of "The Week in Overreactions" -- the idea that was stolen borrowed with approval from our friends at Eye on Football. To the narrative machine!1. WAR is dumb because it says Alex Gordon is the best player in baseball.Head on over to FanGraphs and click on the hitter leaderboard, and you'll see that Royals outfielder Alex Gordon leads all position players with 5.7 WAR right now. Mike Trout is right behind him at 5.6 WAR and Giancarlo Stanton is a bit further back at 5.2 WAR. Robinson Cano and Ben Zobrist are the only other players at 5+ WAR.There was quite the kerfuffle earlier this week over the validity of WAR given Gordon's place atop the leaderboard. He just doesn't feel like the best player in baseball, as WAR claims. After all, he is hitting .284/.360/.450 while Trout is hitting .288/.374/.556, and those two batting lines aren't close at all. Trout has been far better at the plate. The difference lies in the defensive stats, which absolutely love Gordon but rate Trout as below-average.This is the biggest problem with WAR, the lack of reliable defensive stats. We have good metrics these days but none is perfect and in the end, they're all estimators. Gordon is an excellent defensive player, you can see that just watching him play, though the primary reason defensive stats love him so much -- his +17.0 runs saved are the third most in baseball behind Jason Heyward (+19.4) an...  

N3twork Aims to Be 'Pandora of Web Video'

N3twork, a new iOS app, thinks it can serve web video better by getting to know what you’re interested in–cars, food, music, movies, etc. While there is a ton of video on the Web—across YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and hundreds of other websites—finding something of quality to watch isn’t always easy. A little-known San Francisco startup called N3twork believes it can solve this problem with a new iOS app its CEO Nick Young describes as something like Pandora for Web video. “Right now, any kind of content on the Web is organized by domain, by where it lives, with maybe some categories and tags,” Young says. “We can do better with video by organizing it not by where it’s from and who made it, but by what it’s about and then bringing videos to you based on what your interests are.” N3twork culls video from services such as YouTube and Brightcove, partners such as Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die comedy site, and user uploads. I’ve been using the new N3twork app for about the last week and while it has indeed delivered video based on what I told it I was interested in (hashtagged interests such as #cars, #movies, and #music), I only found a video I actually wanted to watch about a third of the time. Young says that the more my fellow users and I spend time with the app, the better it hones our interests—just like Pandora. Those who mirror N3twork to an Apple TV get an entirely differe...
