This Fat Fueled Diet Is Being Called Atkins 2.0

For years, we’ve been told to limit our fat intake. But this trendy diet instructs you to just the opposite, causing you to drop serious pounds—all while eating fats. Yes, you read that right.

You may have heard about the ketogenic diet, which consists of healthy fats, lean protein and a small amount of vegetable-based carbs to turn the body into a fat-burning furnace. Nutritionist David Morin says that if you follow the diet, your energy levels will be through the roof and you’ll experience more mental clarity, less bloating and fewer headaches and cravings. “You can lose five to seven pounds in the first four to six days and then about a pound per week,” he adds. “The ketogenic pathway is a way of using stored fat to produce energy because the body functions well on ketones.”

By manipulating fat, carbohydrates and protein, the body is forced to produce ketones, a source of energy, instead of glucose. “As long as 60–70 percent of your calories come from fats like cheese, uncured bacon, raw oils, avocado and nuts; 20–30 percent of your protein from fatty sources like wild-caught seafood or grass-fed protein (eating more protein than this amount can cause the protein to turn into glucose); and 10 percent from raw, green vegetables, you’ll be satiated.” An example meal would be a salad with lots of olive oil, sliced almonds, olives, cheese, bacon, avocado and a few pieces of shrimp, chicken or a piece of small steak.

He goes on to say that because the ketogenic diet gets the body into a state of ketosis, as long as you eat the right foods it will stay in that ketotic cycle, becoming more of a lifestyle where you can achieve optimal body composition. “There are some people that have stayed ketogenic for years. If done correctly, it’s healthy.”

The fastest way to get your body into a state of ketogenesis is with a fast, like the Master Cleanse. “Someone with an average amount of body fat can get into ketosis in just four days when you start the diet with the Master Cleanse. You also way to test your urine regularly to make sure that your body has entered that state of ketosis in the beginning—you can purchase ketogenic strips to gauge where you are in ketone production, which is important,” adds Morin. “Once you become ketone adapted, then you can start the transition into a truly ketogenic diet.” He also encourages cardio and/or circuit training, too, because it kicks up ketone production.

If it sounds a lot like the Atkins diet, Morin points out that there are similarities. “But, Atkins didn’t do his homework on the types of fats you can eat. The sources of fat in theory were good, but in practical terms they are bad for you because of the chemicals that they contain. In order to really lose weight and get in the best shape possible, everything you eat needs to be totally organic and raw.”

Samsung SM-G532F to be called Galaxy Grand Prime+, not Galaxy Grand Prime (2016)

Remember the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016)? The existence of this successor to the originalGalaxy Grand Prime from 2014 has first been outed by a benchmark database back in August. Then last week we heard that it would launch with the same Grace UX software layer on board as the Galaxy Note7.

And now it’s become rather clear that this phone will not in fact be called Galaxy Grand Prime (2016). Samsung has filed a trademark application for Galaxy Grand Prime+ in its home country of South Korea, as evidenced by the screenshot below.

Since it’s doubtful that the company is working on two Grand Prime devices at the same time, this will thus be the name of the phone bearing the model number SM-G532F. The name has also reportedly been confirmed by a “reliable source” from inside the Samsung, as apparently there’s a (not detailed further) link between the SM-G532F model number and the Grand Prime+ product name in the company’s internal database.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+ will arrive with a 5″ or 5.1″ touchscreen, the MediaTek MT6737T chipset at the helm (with a 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of built-in storage. It should run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow from day one.

Google’s cool new natural language tool is called Parsey McParseface

5 google

Google has changed the way developers build applications that understand human language — and in the finest tradition of the Internet, has named the result after Boaty McBoatface.

The company announced a new SyntaxNet open-source neural network framework that developers can use to build applications that understand human language. As part of that release, Google also introduced Parsey McParseface, a new English language parser that was trained using SyntaxNet.

The launch is a move to democratize the tools for building applications powered by machine learning. Google claims that Parsey is the most accurate model in the world for parsing English. Making it freely available to developers means applications that need to understand natural-language queries will be easier to make.

Parsey — along with the rest of SyntaxNet — is made possible by powerful machine learning tools. It’s built to tackle the problem of understanding humans, which is incredibly difficult for computers. That’s because we speak and write ambiguously, and while human beings are remarkably good at parsing all that, computers have a harder time with it.

By making tools like these available, Google can empower developers and other computer-science researchers to build applications that better understand human input, without requiring those people to resort to typing out exact commands in perfect machine-readable syntax.

All this is part of an arms race by tech companies to be the best at creating new intelligent capabilities that developers can use to build applications. IBM’s Watson platform is a rival to Google’s tools, and Microsoft has its own contenders.

Those capabilities are used to create things like intelligent chatbots that people can interact with using plain text. Having Parsey McParseface interpreting the queries coming into a bot could make it easier for the bot to respond intelligently.

Apple called out for copyright infringement with 3D Touch

When you’re as big as Apple, you get used to staffing a strong legal department pretty quick. Copyright claims and lawsuits have become such a mundane part of the tech business that we honestly can’t even remember a time when Cupertino and Samsung weren’t at each other’s throats over some legal claim. Plus, suing a gigantic corporation is often a viable way to earn a few bucks and many have even turned it into a questionable, but still quite profitable business model.

Still, there is always the honest case of being mistreated as a little player on the market and asking for some justice, which is precisely what Immersion out of California claims to be doing with its recent lawsuit against Apple and its Force Touch and 3D Touch technology.

The claim revolves around three patents awarded to Immersion. The first is titled “Haptic feedback system with stored effects ” and seems to describe software that shows previews after a light press and actions after a firm one. That does sound quite familiar to Apple’s “Peek and Pop”, but we definitely won’t pass judgment.

The second and third patents are “Method and Apparatus for Providing Tactile Sensations” and “Interactivity Model for Shared Feedback on Mobile Devices”, which Immersion ties to Apple’s haptic feedback on touch. But that sounds like a bit more vague of a claim.

Currently Immersion is pursuing legal actions against Apple seeking reparations for damages, but has also filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission (ITC), requesting a sales injunction on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus within the US, which sounds like the more troubling bit.
