It’s time to give the classic wine cooler an at-home update, and it doesn’t need any bizarre ingredients or neon coloring agents. Like the original, this remake delivers sweet, ripe peach flavors accented by a dash of fresh orange. As it turns out, peach schnapps and OJ are the PB&J of the drinks industry.

I don’t believe in junk drawers. It’s not that I don’t believe they exist — they’re a fixture in something like 99 percent of American homes — I just don’t believe they’re necessary. Every drawer should have a reason for being. A junk drawer is just waiting to find its true calling.
So, it’s a little embarrassing to admit that I have a junk drawer in my kitchen. To find a vegetable peeler, I have to sift through tangles of whisk wires and food processor cords. I’ve been telling myself that it’s just in need of a little organizing, but the truth is this drawer’s a dump. Here’s how I decluttered my delusions and gave this drawer back its sense of purpose.

Sean Carroll is a theoretical physics teacher at Caltech where he specializes in dark matter and general relativity. His latest book, The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself, has garnered much success, including being a New York Times bestseller. In his spare time, Carroll prioritizes a good scoop of ice cream, which he eloquently describes as “nature’s most perfect food.” Coming from a cosmologist, you know this means something.

We’ll always have a soft spot for the ice creams of yore. Artificially green mint ice cream? Count us in! But today’s flavors are taking this classic treat to new levels. It’s safe to say there’s never been a more exciting time for ice cream.
While some flavors are more successful than others — we tried that jet-black ice cream and found it wanting — even when a scoop disappoints, there’s something to be said for the creativity that goes into the making.
To better understand how an ice cream flavor is born, we talked with three ice cream makers: Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Shiho Yoshikawa of Sweet Rose Creamery, and Tyler Malek of Salt & Straw.

It is called intra-workout supplementation and is sometimes the most oft ignored component of the workout program that needs to be properly done to maximize your exercise performance.
Intra-workout supplementation is the best way to maximize your exercise performance
Simply put, it is the supplementation that you need to take in during your workout routines, which is anchored on several scientific studies that support it- highly beneficial for accelerating mass gain progress and boost recovery.
Initially intra-workout supplementation started out with water as a hydrating agent and helps cool the body for enhanced performance. But as science evolved, so did the quest to enhance performance and recovery, where water is no longer the ideal solution.
Scientists began to thoroughly research on what the body can use more to gain more, so came carbohydrates which-when added to water- became the workout drink that was more effective than plain water.
Years passed and sports scientists continued to look for more effective minerals and nutritional ingredients to further enhance strength and performance.
The evolution of sports and its challenges
In the early 1990’s, scientists began to focus their attention towards fitness science and theories based on the ell-known premises of the time which included the following;
The importance of amino acids
While hydration with water is an ideal yet basic supplementation, just a small amount of water lost in your body weight may even have an effect on your training performance.
A 2 to 3 percent drop in the body’s water weight during a high intensity interval training routine could result in a huge drop in performance with reduced repetitions, and higher ratings of exertion, according to research.
In order to avoid this, just make sure to stay hydrated by drinking six to 12 ounces of water every 15 to 20 minutes into your workout programs.
You can then make the most of amino acid supplements where in high concentrations taken during exercise largely increases exercise-induced protein synthesis or muscle building. It also increasing blood flow to working muscles and heightened cellular sensitivity that allows the muscles to absorb substrates and fuel at a faster rate.
It is advised to take amino acid supplements before your workouts to make sure that amino acids are in your blood stream to during your exercise program and still reap the same benefits.
Start to maximize your exercise performance and allow your body to reap the results better and faster.

There’s no rule that says you can’t drink your red wine chilled to its tannic bones at refrigerator temperature (around 40°F), or that room-temperature red isn’t perfectly fine — even if it is summer and you don’t have AC. That said, there is an ideal temperature to drink your red, and for most that’s cellar temperature, or around 55°F to 60°F. At that temperature, your red will open up to show you its very best self.
So how do you achieve a temperature that’s not too hot, not too cold, but just right? Here are three rules for chilling your red wine, Goldilocks.

We love rosé as much as everyone else and yes, it’s probably safe to say that pink is the color of summer wine, but there’s no need to banish red from the summer rotation. Just throw those cold-weather sippers in the fridge and prepare to see a softer side.
Yes, you read that right! Despite what often passes for conventional wisdom, enjoying red wine cold is far from blasphemy. In fact, you’re probably drinking your reds too hot.

Seeing good initial results from several test runs, a move to develop virtual reality for elderly people as a means to help them feel relaxed is currently underway and may soon be made available.
Harnessing the technology of virtual reality for elderly people
She seems to be enjoying it and has already tried it five times. 103 year old Virginia Anderlini used to sit alone in a sofa of her San Francisco elderly-care home, until one day she was introduced to Dr. Sonia Kim who gave her the opportunity to take those virtual reality trips that made her happy.
On this very recent visit by Dr. Kim, Anderlini was really looking forward to her next virtual reality adventure and as expected, Dr. Kim starts to place a virtual reality headset over her eyes.
Anderlini began to giggle as she was transported into another world and this time a sunset view of the horizon of a Hawaiian beach, surrounded by glistening rays of dusk and as she looks up she sees the blades of leaves from towering palm trees.
She beckons to her son, who was seated close by and tells him, “Terry, you’ve got to see this too.”
Feelings of self-pity and low self-esteem
For Kim, being a virtual reality entrepreneur gives her a sense of fulfillment with her hopes of helping improve quality of life for the elderly. She envisions that her VR program – one example of which was the Hawaiian sunset beach environment – called Aloha VR, may be a way to help people relax, instead of spending long hours sitting in front of the TV.
Kim also said that even for unhappy people, virtual reality may be a way to provide them an escape into a world that may somehow allow them to divert their attention from their hurt and pain.
Studies show that many elderly people, especially those cared for in assisted-living homes are often at risk of depression, brought about by feelings of being left alone. Also, because of their limited physical capabilities, they begin to feel sorry for themselves.
This paved the way for Kim to initially establish Once Caring Team back in 2014, where staffers call seniors on the phone to check their status and also take down notes on medication and doctors’ appointments.
So with virtual reality for elderly people, we might soon have the ability to make it available for all.
