Does eating a lot of butter every day improve brain function? To find out, Eri Gentry (co-founder of BioCurious and a MAKE contributor) is calling for volunteers to eat three tablespoons of butter or coconut fat each day and take a daily math quiz.
Will eating one of these fats improve your math performance? Based on Seth Roberts' butter and math study, recently presented at a Bay Area Quantified Self Show & Tell, during which Seth ate half a stick of butter each day and performed better in math, we expect the answer to be yes.
To test this theory across multiple participants and two types of fats, from October 20 - November 12, I will run Butter Mind & Coconut Mind, meant to collect data on the ingestion of specific "food fats" and math scores/times.
To qualify for the study, you must be willing to eat 3TBS of butter or coconut oil (sticking to the same one) for 8 days and do a 32 problem simple math test for 24 days. You must have access to the internet to submit your scores.
Gravitational waves are real, and scientists have detected them. In the video above, PBS Space Time explains the discovery by researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). From the New York Times: A team of physicists who can now count themselves as astronomers announced on Thursday that they had heard and recorded the sound […]
Projects will always need management. And now with the tech gold rush it feels like there are more projects than ever with fewer managers than there’s demand for. But it takes too much time and money to go back to school full time so luckily the Project Management Professional certification training course is now 96% […]
If you’ve been blessed enough to avoid them yourself, you’ve definitely heard the horror stories. Late night, crushing out a ton of work, writing, coding, anything, then boom – your computer crashes. The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
You travel around a lot. It might be that jet set life from New York to LA to London to Tokyo, or it might be back and forth from the coffee shop to the office, or from the kitchen to the couch. Any which way, you’re mobile and that’s the way to live. When you […]
