Gambar
Otak bagi manusia merupakan organ paling vital, karena sebagai pusat informasi dan penggerak kegiatan manusia. Otak terdiri atas jutaan sel namun sebenarnya yang efektif digunakan saat kita berpikir keras hanyalah sepersekian nol persen dari jumlah keseluruhan sel otak kita.
Albert Einsten sebagai ilmuwan dunia pengembang fisika, hanya menggunakan 1% dari sel otaknya padahal ia merupakan ilmuwan yang cukup kreatif, dan bahkan hampir tiap saat memikirkan hal-hal baru.
Berbeda dengan manusia di zaman sekarang ini, kemampuan berpikir kreatif manusia, sangatlah terbatas karena tidak dilatih untuk menggunakannya.

Hoodia News Hoodia California

A multi-million pound race between the worlds biggest food companies is under way to tackle the global obesity epidemic by producing the first clinically-tested "satiety pill". Three conglomerates - the Anglo-Dutch firm Unilever, Frances Danone and Kraft in America - are researching compounds to achieve the hallowed goal of inducing people to eat less by suppressing their appetite.
With 300 million people worldwide rated as overweight or obese, the annual global cost of treatment and economic loss from the epidemic is now £100bn.

Scientists are increasingly placing their hopes in a range of natural substances which have the effect of duping the brain into "satiety" - the feeling of a full stomach. In the last 12 months, patents have been given appetite-suppressing extracts including Korean pine nuts and chicory roots. But at the head of the race to cash in on the £3bn worldwide market for dietary control products is Hoodia gordonii - a spiny cactus, which takes fi…

African Plant May Help Fight Fat

Gambar
(CBS) Each year, people spend more than $40 billion on products designed to help them slim down. None of them seem to be working very well. Now along comes hoodia. Never heard of it? Soon it’ll be tripping off your tongue, because hoodia is a natural substance that literally takes your appetite away.
It’s very different from diet stimulants like Ephedra and Phenfen that are now banned because of dangerous side effects. Hoodia doesn’t stimulate at all. Scientists say it fools the brain by making you think you’re full, even if you’ve eaten just a morsel. Correspondent Lesley Stahl reports.

Hoodia is a bitter-tasting cactus-like plant. 60 Minutes was told that if it wanted to try hoodia, it would have to go to Africa. Why? Because the only place in the world where hoodia grows wild is in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa.
Nigel Crawhall, a linguist and interpreter, hired an experienced tracker named Toppies Kruiper, a local aboriginal Bushman, to help find it. The Bushmen were feature…

African Plant May Aid Dieters Farmers

Gambar
MARIENTAL, Namibia - When fully grown, the plant resembles something from "The Day of the Triffids": a squat succulent with thick, spiky arms, purple fleshy petals and seedpods like rhino horns. Hoodia gordonii is no beauty, but this humble plant is Africas latest cash crop, priced almost like a narcotic at $40 an ounce.
The plant, which grows wild in the Kalahari Desert of southern Africa, was once used by indigenous tribes to suppress hunger and thirst when hunting. Now its such a darling of the international dieting industry that googling the word calls up millions of responses.



The resulting demand is so hot, wild supplies have been severely compromised, smuggling is rife, and farmers in southern Africa are trying to get in on the game."You start doing the sums; its too good to be true. You want to throw your calculator away. Its an impossible phenomenon," hoodia farmer Dougal Bassingthwaighte said.

Chevrolets New Environmental Labels Germinate a Good Idea But Dont go far Enough

Gambar
Consumers are well aware of fuel economy and concerned about tailpipe pollution. But its much harder to get information on the whole lifecycle environmental impact of cars: how much energy it takes to produce a car, the pollution generated, and recyclability. Now Chevrolet is taking a step toward making this information more readily available. 
Starting with the 2012 Sonic, Chevrolet will begin putting what it is calling EcoLogic labels on the windows of all its models.



So far the label is more self-serving and less useful than it could be, listing some minor fuel-saving features on the car, such as variable-valve timing (which other automakers have had for about 20 years) and electric power steering (not exactly uncommon these days). What it doesnt highlight is whats left out, such as the makeup of the paint used to spray the car.
This label also lists the estimated percentage of the cars content that is recyclable (85 percent) and special processes at the factory that reduce its en…

NHTSA Finds More Toyota Sudden Acceleration Deaths

Gambar
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there are significantly more deaths related to unintended acceleration in Toyotas than it initially reported in February.
The latest numbers show that there have been 6,200 complaints of unintended acceleration in Toyota cars and trucks submitted to NHTSA since 2000. Those complaints allege 71 fatal accidents, resulting in 89 deaths. There have been 57 related injuries during that period.


These figures are up from the 2,600 complaints involving 52 deaths that the agency reported in February. NHTSA warned, however, that these complaints had not been verified.
In an email, Toyota spokesman John Hanson said, "We are making an all-out effort to ensure our vehicles are safe and we remain committed to investigating reported incidents of unintended acceleration in our vehicles quickly. "It is important to remember that many complaints in the NHTSA database, for any manufacturer, lack sufficient detail that cou…

Providing cutting-edge technologies has always been a core value of the Cadillac brand, so when the recent announcement that the Cadillac ELR would offer a host of upgrades for the 2016 model year, we here at Miller Brothers Chevrolet Cadillac were more than thrilled.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado

Gambar
The Colorado is completely redesigned for 2015, and even grows from a compact truck into a midsize. Not everyone needs a full-size pickup truck, but for years there just haven’t been many small trucks that match the capability of the big rigs. General Motors hopes to reverse that trend with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. It’s a midsize pickup that stands tall next to the full-size competition, and even offers a modicum of car-like refinement.
Powertrains and Performance The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado launches with two powertrains that provide capability that belies this Chevy’s relatively small size. Base models come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with standard rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive.
With rear-wheel drive, the four-cylinder Colorado gets an EPA-rated 22 mpg combined (20 mpg city, 27 mpg highway),* or 21 mpg combined (19 mpg city, 25 mpg highway) with f…

Turn the lights off: How the White House hides from a crisis, in photos

Gambar
US president Donald Trump’s sudden dismissal of FBI director James Comey stunned lawmakers and political observers. It also seems to have stunned his staff, who scrambled to react and manage communications around the decision.
The Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson has an almost unbelievable recounting (paywall) of chaos at the White House Tuesday evening (May 9), with press secretary Sean Spicer reportedly calling for the lights to be turned off.
After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes behind these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told reporters that Spicer would answer some questions, as long as he was not filmed doing so. Spicer then emerged.
“Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off,” he ordered. “We’ll take care of this. … Can you just turn that light off?”
Spicer got his wish and was soon standing in near darkness between two tall hedges, with more than a dozen reporters closely gathered around him. For 10 minutes, h…

Astros' Alex Bregman showing consistency in 10-game hit streak

Gambar
Alex Bregman was not satisfied with his unremarkable April. The opening month seems to quickly be fading as a distant memory given the 10-game hit streak he carried into Wednesday's game against the Braves.
Ten games has tied Bregman's career-long streak and is the longest for any Astro this season. "His rhythm and his timing have been significantly better," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "His bat angles have been significantly better."


Bregman's first April in the bigs ended with Hinch giving him a day off. The 23-year-old third baseman, and former No. 1 prospect, posted a .650 OPS.
"He's using his lower half a little bit better," Hinch said of Bregman's improved engagement on his swings.
Only one of the 10 games has been a multi-hit game. During the run, Bregman is hitting .314 (11-for-35) with five runs scored, two doubles a triple and four RBI. He is the only Astros position player still searching for his first home run.

WATCH: Betsy DeVos Speaks Over Torrent Of Boos During Bethune-Cookman Speech

Gambar
Betsy DeVos spoke through waves of boos and shouted protests during her commencement speech at Bethune-Cookman University on Wednesday, delivering a celebratory address with what seemed at times to be grim-faced resolve.
In the week and a half since the historically black university announced DeVos would be delivering the address, protest petitions drew thousands of signatures and calls for the school president's resignation have cropped up — as NPR's Anya Kamenetz laid out here.
The reaction to the speech itself — which you can watch below — was often no different.


As the lightning-rod secretary of education stepped behind the lectern, she was greeted with immediate boos from the students — a deepening roar that had begun in smatters minutes earlier when she received her honorary doctorate from school President Edison O. Jackson.
Yet it was also clear DeVos had anticipated this response, opening her speech with a call for understanding.

Watch atletico madrid vs. Real madrid live stream: start time, 2nd leg of uefa champions league semifinal

Gambar
Real Madrid will play for a shot at repeating as UEFA Champions League champions on Wednesday when they face crosstown rivals Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their semifinal showdown carrying a seemingly insurmountable 3-0 lead, after a hat trick by superstar striker Cristiano Ronaldo carried the reigning kings of Europe through the first leg of the semifinal, which itself was a rematch of last year’s Champions League Final.
Whichever Madrid side wins on Wednesday, the opponent this year will be Italian giant Juventus, who easily surpassed French Ligue 1 leaders AS Monaco on a 4-1 aggregate score after a 2-1 win in Turin on Tuesday.

Atletico Madrid must win Wednesday’s match by a 4-0 score to advance. If the Atleti allow a single goal to the offensive machine that is Real, Atletico will need a seemingly impossible 6-1 win, due to the away-goals rule. But Real Madrid has not been on the losing end of a clean sheet in their last 60 matches across all competitions, and have not los…

Singapore-based beer company Tiger has launched a global credentials campaign that establishers the brand as the ‘Beer with Bite’

Gambar
Brought to life through a series of 30-second and 15-second films created in partnership with Marcel Sydney, Tiger tells the story of the bold attitude and flavour behind this bite, from the invention of tropical lagering in 1932, to the use of solar power to brew every bottle at its Singapore brewery.
The campaign also demonstrates how Tiger’s full-bodied flavour still manages to hold its own in the heat of the Asian streets and is a true match for the spice of street food. To capture the feeling of the streets of Asia first-hand, Matt Devine of Revolver shot the spots on location in Singapore.
Tiger also partnered with up-and-coming French music composer and producer Mika Abadie, who responded to a blind brief. Alongside the films, a collection of key visuals proudly hero the Tiger bottle and launch the brand’s new look.


Mie-Leng Wong, global brand director of Tiger at Heineken, said: “It was important to ensure that we capture and visualise the brand’s character in the films and e…

James Harden collapsed down the stretch and cost Rockets Game 5

Gambar
James Harden, the point guard of the quickest offense in the league, held the ball watching the clock run down once. Then he did it again. By the time the overtime buzzer sounded, it was the San Antonio Spurs winning, 110-107 — and the Houston Rockets scoring just six points in the extra period.
In those five minutes, Harden went 0-of-3 shooting, with a single assist and three turnovers. And he wasn’t guarded by Kawhi Leonard once, with the Spurs star sitting out with an ankle injury.
We’ve seen too many blowouts so far this postseason (and this series), making this game manna from heaven. In the regular season, four games between these teams were decided by a combined 12 points, and so this nail-biting buzzer-to-buzzer thriller was exactly what we expected the whole time.

Still, the overtime period sapped much of the life out of what was otherwise a fabulous showing of basketball. The Rockets, who played seven players, must have been exhausted, Harden in particular. That’s a reason,…

Spurs-Rockets: Kawhi Leonard rolls ankle in Game 5, sits out final play of regulation, OT

Gambar
Kawhi Leonard rolled his ankle during Game 5 of the Spurs-Rockets series. Initially, the roll was so bad it appeared that he was going to be forced to come out of the game.
However, because it's such an important game Leonard did his best to play through the injury. For the majority of the game he managed to do so, but he was forced to sit out the final play of regulation.
On the final play, the Spurs ran a simple pick and roll play involving Patty Mills and Pau Gasol, but Gasol didn't clear out fast enough. Mills pump faked to create space and hit the final shot, but it was too late. The clock expired with the ball in his hands and the game went into overtime. The entire time Leonard sat on the bench.

Leonard proceeded to sit out the entirety of overtime as well. Leonard attempted to play as much as he possibly could, but eventually the Spurs sat him down and worked on his ankle. He's their best player and clearly if the Spurs are working on his ankle during overtime of …
