Interesting messaging based real-estate BOT startup.

    • 5 bonus questions for Elementary (ages 6-9)

       
         
      • What project are you working on now? How do you feel about your progress? (reflection, evaluation)
      •  
      • How were you kind to your classmates today? (reflection, evaluation, empathy)
      •  
      • Tell me an amazing thing you learned today. Is it a fact or an opinion? (application, reflection)
      •  
      • Is there something that you said or did that you would take back now? What would you do instead? (empathy, evaluation, problem solving)
      •  
      • How is your guide feeling today? (encourages conversation, listening, and empathy)

  • React Native

    Application boilerplates for creating React Native applications.

    ignite
    The unfair starting CLI, Generator, and more for React Native. I looked over this and, though I haven’t used it yet for a project, it has one of my favorite developer affordances: Generators. It also takes a different approach from most boilerplates in that you do not have to fork the repo. Just generate it from the base! Includes redux sagas and some config to get going with Fastlane for CI.

    pepperoni
    An well-built open source starter for React Native iOS and Android projects jam packed with lots of tasty ingredients. I created a small app with this and, while the linting rules are a little persnickety for my taste (plus semicolons, who needs them?) the overall developer experience was good.

    snowflake
    A React-Native starter kit using Redux, Parse.com, Jest given to us by the affable Barton Hammond. Includes all sorts of goodies, including Parse, which is planned to be replaced with Serverless, which uses AWS Lambdas and helps get you in the public cloud. Oh là là!

    react-native-webpack-starter-kit
    Build your React Native app with Webpack and Babel.

    react-native-es6-babel
    Configuration to build React Native apps with ES6 using webpack and Babel

    react-native-es6-reflux
    Boilerplate for iOS app development with React Native, ES6 and Reflux

    react-native-tabbed
    An unassumingly but sweet base for a native app with tabbed navigation and modal window support. Builds on the work of react-native-navbar. See it in use with React Native Icons in my Smartphone Symphony app.

  • Why Do You Need a Journey Map and When Should You Have One?

      

    Journey maps should always be created to support a known business goal. Maps that do not align to a business goal will not result in applicable insight. The goal could be an external issue, such as learning about a specific persona’s purchasing behaviors, or an internal issue, such as addressing lack of ownership over certain parts of the customer experience. Some potential business goals that journey mapping could be applied toward are listed below.

      

    Shift a company’s perspective from inside-out to outside-in. If an organization lets internal processes and systems drive decisions that affect customer experience, a journey map could help turn the culture of that organization by refocusing on the thoughts, actions and emotions of customers. Journey mapping sheds light on real human experiences that often organizations know very little about.

      

    Break down silos to create one shared, organization-wide vision. Because journey maps create a vision of the entire customer journey, they become a tool for creating cross-department conversation and collaboration. Journey mapping could be the first step in building an organization-wide plan of action to invest in customer experience, as it helps answer the question, “Where do we start?” by highlighting areas of friction.

      

    Assign ownership of key touchpoints to internal departments. Often, areas of inconsistencies and glitches in customer journeys exist simply because no internal team has been tasked with ownership of that element. Journey maps can create clarity around alignment of departments or groups with different stages or key touchpoints in the journey that need addressing.

      

    Target specific customers. Journey maps can help teams focus in on specific personas or customers, whether that means understanding differences or similarities across the journeys of multiple personas, prioritizing a high-value persona or exploring ways to target a new type of customer.

      

    Understand quantitative data. If you are aware through analytics or other quantitative data that something specific is happening—maybe online sales are plateauing or an online tool is being underutilized—journey mapping can help you find out why.

  • How to Take

     

    Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details

     
     

    The standard dose for Bacopa monnieri is 300mg, assuming that the total bacoside content (the active compound) is 55% of the extract, by weight.

     

    Bacopa monnieri can also be supplemented in a leaf or powder form. To achieve the ideal 10-20% of bacoside content requires a dose of 750-1,500mg of the leaf or powder.

     

    Historically, Bacopa monnieri was consumed with ghee, a clarified butter that originated in India. Since Bacopa monnieri is fat soluble and requires a lipoid transporter to be absorbed, it should be supplemented alongside a meal.

    • How to Take

       

      Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details

       
       

      For the purpose of reducing carbohydrate absorption and glucose spikes following a meal, morus alba must be consumed alongisde said carbohydrate source. The dosage appears to be 500-1,000mg/kg in rat studies (assuming about a 0.11% 1-deoxynojirimicin content) which is an estimated human dose of:

       
      • 5,400-11,000mg for a 150lb person

      •  
      • 7,300-14,500mg for a 200lb person

      •  
      • 9,000-18,000mg for a 250lb person

      •  

      Concentrated extracts may reduce the above requirement, so a 10:1 concentrated extract (for the 1-deoxynojirimicin content) would then require 900-1,800mg at the heaviest weight.

       

      For inflammation and other health related issues (such as uric acid), the rat dose appears to be in the range of 20-200mg/kg which is an estimated human dose of:

       
      • 220-2,200mg for a 150lb person

      •  
      • 300-2,900mg for a 200lb person

      •  
      • 400-3,600mg for a 250lb person

  • How to Take

     

    Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details

     
     

    The lowest effective dose for acute usage of ashwagandha, and perhaps the most cost-effective dose, is 300-500mg. The optimal dose is 6,000mg a day usually divided into three doses (2,000mg) and while 300-500mg is effective for most situations a lower dose of 50-100mg can be seen as effective in few instances such as reducing the immunosuppression seen with stress and augmenting anxiolytic (anxiety reducing agents).

     

    Ashwagandha root extract is the preferred form of ashwagandha, for the purposes of supplementation.

     

    Ashwagandha should be taken with meals. If taken once a day, it should be taken with breakfast.

  • How to Take

     

    Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details

     
     

    Supplementation of rhodiola rosea tends to refer to either the SHR-5 extract in particular or an equivalent extract, any that confers both 3% rosavins and 1% salidroside.

     

    Usage of rhodiola as a daily preventative against fatigue has been reported to be effective in doses as low as 50mg.

     

    Acute usage of rhodiola for fatigue and anti-stress has been noted to be taken in the 288-680mg range.

     

    As rhodiola has been shown to have a bell-curve response before, it is recommended to not exceed the aforementioned 680mg dosage as higher doses may be ineffective.

  • Vitamin K should be supplemented alongside fatty acids, even if the vitamin is coming from a plant-based source, so consider taking vitamin K at meal time. Microwaving plant-based sources of vitamin K will increase the absorption rate of the vitamin.

  • Architects look at thousands of buildings during their  training, and study critiques of those buildings written  by masters. In contrast, most software developers only  ever get to know a handful of large programs  well—usually programs they wrote  themselves—and never study the great programs of  history. As a result, they repeat one another's mistakes  rather than building on one another's successes. 

       

      Our goal is to change that. In these two books, the authors of  four dozen open source applications explain how their software  is structured, and why. What are each program's major  components? How do they interact? And what did their builders  learn during their development? In answering these questions,  the contributors to these books provide unique insights into how  they think. 

       

      If you are a junior developer, and want to learn how your  more experienced colleagues think, these books are the place  to start. If you are an intermediate or senior developer,  and want to see how your peers have solved hard design  problems, these books can help you too.

  • The moral of the story is that even an entrepreneur with a smaller idea that is not fundable can build a Unicorn company. The initial cash needs to come from revenues, not financing. But later, as the business finds its stride, generates profits, it can offer the opportunity and cash for pursuing a bigger idea.

  • Hydrolyzed collagen, which can also be called hydrolyzed gelatin is made from mainly the skin of pigs.  If it does not come from the skin of pigs than it comes from the skin of cows.  It is very gross.
  • Because hydrolyzed collagen is missing this amino acid the human body cannot use it to increase protein synthesis or create protein, making it worthless as using it as a source of protein.
  • Supplement companies selling hydrolyzed collagen will tout it’s remarkable health benefits.  These benefits mainly include hair and nail support and joint benefits.  Numerous studies support the benefits of hydrolyzed collagen for hair, nails, and joints, however, I believe these benefits do not out weight the negative effects hydrolyzed collagen has on protein utilization.  What good is nice hair and nails, when you have zero muscle mass and look like skinny, malnourished, person? You’ll notice that these websites that promote hydrolyzed collagen as a good, healthy product, never mention that it has a biological value and PDCAA of ZERO and may decrease the efficiency of other high-quality proteins.
