Picture this: You’re in the gym, when the biggest, strongest-looking guy you’ve ever seen plods up to your squat rack and asks to work in. When you tell your buddies about your brush with the behemoth later, what word do you use to tell them just how huge he was? As a fitness editor, I talk about how fit dudes look… a lot. And I ask myself that question… a lot. When the latest superhero movie trailer finally drops, for instance, and it reveals that one of the Hollywood Chrises has pushed his already supernatural physique to the next level, how do I describe his gains in a hype post about the footage on social media?All fit guys — in the gym or on screen — range from cut, ripped, jacked, or swole. Obviously, there are other descriptors out and around that also get the job done. At their core, though, they’re all variations of these four categories. The question is, how do I decide which one fits each body type best? What makes a guy cut? No, maybe he’s better described as ripped… or is he jacked? Sometimes he’s swole, for sure, no question...

7 Cheap USB Flash Drives (Under $10), Ranked Best to Worst

The Saints have a new defensive identity, and it’s here to stay – SBNation.com clock menu more-arrow no yes Horizontal – White Horizontal – White Horizontal – White Search Horizontal – White Horizontal

Just in time for the end of the Drew Brees era, the Saints built a defense that can take over as the backbone of the franchise. It wasn’t that long ago that the Achilles’ heel for the New Orleans Saints was their awful defense. The team was bottom five in the NFL in points allowed in 2014, 2015, and 2016. That dragged an elite offense to a 7-9 record three straight years. When the defense finally shaped up to become a middle-of-the-pack unit, the Saints were a playoff team again. Now — for the first time since Drew Brees signed with the Saints in 2006 — defense is the reason why New Orleans is a contender. The post-Brees era isn’t far off the horizon, but now it doesn’t look so scary for the Saints. The young group of defensive talent stands to carry the team for the foreseeable future. There are a few positions that are valued higher than others in the NFL. Quarterback is the clear top priority for any franchise; on defense, it’s cornerbacks and defensive ends. Not too far behind in an increasingly pass-heavy NFL is safety. In Marshon Lattimore, Marcus Davenport, and Marcus Williams, the Saints have three 23-year-old players who are already among the best in the NFL at their po...

Connecting decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas, Bloomberg quickly and accurately delivers business and financial information, news and insight around the world. The inventor Buckminster Fuller once described technological progress as “ephemeralization.” Sunbeams and breezes are replacing coal and oil as energy sources, brands are more important than buildings to corporations, and fiat money has supplanted gold and silver. So it seems reasonable to conclude that the periodic table of elements—that wonky taxonomy of physical stuff such as copper, iron, mercury, and sulfur—is passé, no more relevant than a manual typewriter. Except exactly the opposite is true. Matter still matters. And on the 150th anniversary of the periodic table’s formulation by the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev, it’s more important than it’s ever been. Read More Scientists have long sought to catalog the known elements: In 1789, Antoine Lavoisier sorted them by their properties. By ...

Sin tiempo para el ahorro. El gasto semanal en productos de gran consumo de las familias

Sin tiempo para el ahorro. El gasto semanal en productos de gran consumo de las familias españolas se incrementa un 20% en el mes de diciembre, según los datos del informe “Cómo cambian los hábitos de compra en Navidad”, que la plataforma de estudios de mercado Aecoc Shopperview presentó hace tan solo unos días. Este aumento del gasto semanal se debe, principalmente, a una subida del 26% en la compra de productos frescos, mientras que el gasto en productos envasados crece un 16% durante este mes. El informe dibuja un consumidor que es consciente del incremento de gasto que se produce en Navidad, pero que lo acepta y participa de ello. De hecho, el 62% de los encuestados asegura que se permite gastar más en este periodo para ver disfrutar a sus familiares, mientras que un 31% considera que invierte en exceso. Con motivo de la Navidad, el 48% de los encuestados compra más artículos “Premium/gourmet”, si bien, una vez pasadas estas fechas, el 40% de los compradores prescinde de estos artículos en su cesta de la compra. Esta tendencia a incrementar el gasto en productos gourmet va acompañada de un abandono temporal de los hábitos de alimentación saludables. El 39% de los compradores...

3D scaffold could let docs test cancer drugs on patient cells

A new 3D structure for growing cancer cell cultures could allow doctors to test medications on model tumors they grow from a patient’s own cells, researchers report. Unlike previous devices, researchers made the new structure from protein fibers that cells know how to modify. “We can potentially use the cultures to do things like drug testing or single cell analysis, which may help us identify the best treatments for a patient’s cancer,” says Gary Luker, professor of radiology at the University of Michigan. At present, some patients have samples of their cancer cells grown in mice for drug testing and analysis, but the cancer cells don’t always grow and the process takes months, Luker says. The 3D scaffold, an advanced petri dish, could allow doctors to get answers about the effectiveness of drugs in days or weeks. Earlier scaffolds, trying to mimic the structure and composition of the gel-like network that binds a collection of cells into a tissue have mixed records. “Rather than trying to guess at what the tumor cells’ microenvironment ought to be, we’ve made a space where they can create their own cell niche, as they do in the body,” says Stacy Jordahl, a recent chemical eng...

Pest exclusion is an old idea, but one that is gaining traction in the industry. Companies

Pest exclusion is an old idea, but one that is gaining traction in the industry. Companies that specialize in exclusion may have an advantage for providing long-term, effective methods of keeping pests — especially rodents — out. Effective rodent management relies on the ability to identify signs of an infestation, interpret site-specific rodent activity and overcome the cryptic, exploratory and opportunistic behaviors of rodents. But what if indoor mouse and rat problems could be prevented? To achieve this, a new movement within the pest management industry is cashing in on an old idea: exclusion. RAISING THE BAR. Customers in today’s market are well educated and many are looking for “safe” pest management alternatives. With high (sometimes unreasonable) expectations, customers are apt to switch service providers if even one pest is observed. To address this new market, some companies have raised the bar by offering proactive services to prevent pest problems over the long term. When done correctly, this requires a skill set that is not traditionally found within the pest management industry, because proper exclusion requires the selection of appropriate construction materials ...

Parking is often at a premium at football games, especially NFL games, so it pays to make a tailgate party worth your while.

That’s a lot of football fans, and half the fun is warming up with a well-equipped pre-game party. According to one survey, the most important accessory for a good tailgate party is a full barbecue, but we all know that’s just the start.
