Chronic Obesity

The inevitable result of loosing seasonal variation is obesity and chronic disease. As proof, he doesn’t point only do the population of his home state, which ranks at number five of the most obese states in the nation, but also to the fact that our pets are fat, too. “The only two animals in the world that suffer chronic obesity are humans and the pets we keep at home”, he says. “There’s a connection”.

The key to fixing the problem, according to Cronise, is to artificially introduce seasons back into our lives. Drawing on the growing literature on brown fat and metabolic analysis, he prescribed himself daily hour-long walks in sub-6O degree temperatures along With moderate exercise and calorie restriction. In the course of just 6 months, from June to November, he dropped almost 40 pounds.

How To Structure a WordPress Plugin

There are different ways to organize the structure. And as other say in this Stack Overflow post, it depends on the plugin and what it does.

It is good to test what works best in terms of having things organized in order to find easier and maintain code.

As it happens with coding, sometimes you start with just a few lines of code and end up with hundreds and a few files to include and then there’s the classes and the styles, and, and, and.

This reminds me how it goes with any type of project when the scope becomes not so clear.  And this may be in part because of the many parts involved not understanding the technical parts and what it really takes to make structural or functional changes.

What is quantum computing?

I was listening to a podcast episode by Kevin Rose where he mentions at the end Quantum Computing and so I found out more about it.

Quantum computers are incredibly powerful machines that take a new approach to processing information. Built on the principles of quantum mechanics, they exploit complex and fascinating laws of nature that are always there, but usually remain hidden from view. By harnessing such natural behavior, quantum computing can run new types of algorithms to process information more holistically. They may one day lead to revolutionary breakthroughs in materials and drug discovery, the optimization of complex manmade systems, and artificial intelligence. We expect them to open doors that we once thought would remain locked indefinitely. Acquaint yourself with the strange and exciting world of quantum computing.

I’ll have to explore more about this, so here is the link where I got this from.

How to Pass PHP Data and Strings to JavaScript in WordPress

This one post by TutsPlus is JUST what I was needing this morning.  I got so excited when I found that there is a way to pass info from WordPress to the enqueued JavaScripts, that I could not help and put here the code that will do the trick and of course the original post.  For my (o other’s) future reference.

UPDATE: I had to use this example instead from Pippins Plugins: Use wp_localize_script, It Is Awesome

Charming City


Every city has something unique, every city has its own charm. Just as there are people who are habitants of the city, there are also unique stories as people share the spaces in which they move during the days as life goes on.

TechCrunch & WeWork

“WeWork’s Adam Neumann talks with Connie Loizos about building operating systems for buildings, selling services, and building partnerships.”

I’ve been doing my remote work at WeWork and I’ve been enjoying having a very cool working space where not only I can network with others but also have interesting views from the city.
