Distractify - School Lunch Around the World

No comments:
Distractify has some school lunches from around the world. Italy looks great.

About 32 million children in the US eat cafeteria school lunches every day. As a nation with a childhood obesity epidemic, Sweetgreen—an organization that seeks to battle childhood obesity and promote healthy eating habits for children—decided to take a look at what these kids actually have for lunch at school. The organization also takes a look at the school lunches that children from around the world typically eat, to further examine where America falls in comparison.

So I was pretty skeptical at first. But, sure enough, Castoreum is indeed from beaver butts, and it is indeed used in food. See here: Beaver Butts Emit Goo Used for Vanilla Flavoring.

What Ever Happened to Scotty Smalls from Sandlot? - Tom Guiry

No comments:
Tom Guiry played Scotty Smalls in the movie Sandlot. But whatever happened to him?


Guiry's first rule was Scotty Smalls in Sandlot when he was 11. This led to other films such as Lassie (1994),The Last Home Run (1996), Wrestling with Alligators (1998), Black Hawk Down (2001), andJustice (2003).

Guiry is still chasing the dream, acting.  But, aside from a few appearances on tv shows, Guiry's last notable role was on the 2003 movie, Mystic River. For a complete filmography, click here.

Personal life:

In August 2013, Tom Guiry was arrested at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas for allegedly head-butting a police officer after he was told he was too drunk to board a flight. This came just one month after a "Sandlot" reunion for the movie's 20th anniversary in Utah, where it was originally filmed though Guiry was unable to attend the reunion.

Rolling House - Roll It

No comments:
Roll It, a cool experimental house, resulted from the collaboration among different institutes within the University of Karlsruhe. This cylindrical design is a modular prototype that provides flexible space within a minimum housing unit. Three different sections are dedicated to different functional needs: there’s a bed and table in section, an exercise cylinder, and a kitchen with a sink.

Structurally, the prototype includes an outer shell with the four support rings over a rigid inner shell. A translucent membrane envelops the entire form and serves as advertising space for sponsors. Thin wooden slats are attached to the membrane to form the running surface of the roll.
