Here’s the scenario: You have a bunch of vegetables and aren’t sure what to do with

Here’s the scenario: You have a bunch of vegetables and aren’t sure what to do with them. You don’t have the energy or brain space to make anything remotely complicated. This is what you do: Just roast them to hit that sweet spot. It’s an easy method, and you’ll get lightly browned, crispy-skinned vegetables with tender, honeyed flesh within. Raw vegetables can taste bitter, especially to people who aren’t totally sold on eating them (such as kids or grown-up kids). Roasting vegetables mellows the flavor, says registered dietician Susan Bowerman on Discover Good Nutrition. She’s the director of nutrition training at weight-management company Herbalife and a board-certified specialist in sports dietetics. “Roasting is one of my favorite ways to cook vegetables—especially carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts,” Bowerman says. “The dry heat of the oven caramelizes the natural sugars in vegetables, which brings about an amazing depth of flavor. And, it’s super easy.” Dry-heat cooking, either by roasting or frying, helps release the natural sugars in vegetables. This caramelization is a non-enzymic browning reaction that happens when there is no water and sugars break ...

Oh, you still charge your phone by plugging it into the wall each night? That’s . . . cute. One of the best things about the new iPhone is its wireless charging capability. Powered by Qi technology, it transfers energy from the coils in one device to similar coils in your phone.  But the best thing about wireless charging? You don’t need to know how it works. All you need to do is place your iPhone on a compatible charger and wander away. No cords, no fuss.  There are a lot of chargers out there that do multiple things—they charge your phone, your watch, your earbuds. They often have an extra USB port out the back. They light up, don’t light up, light up in patterns—the point being they’re needlessly complicated. This 7.5-watt Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad does one thing. You put your phone on it and it charges that device. The most complicated thing about it? Deciding...

What’s in store for the new iPhone in 2019? We won’t officially know until the fall

What’s in store for the new iPhone in 2019? We won’t officially know until the fall (most likely in September), but until then, you can bet that the rumor mill will be fully operational. This page will keep track of what’s being rumored as new features of the 2019 iPhones, and we’ll provide some analysis and whether or not a rumor seems feasible. Updated 09/09/19: A new rumor from MacRumors states that the 2019 iPhones have a new sensor co-processor code-named “Rose” or “R1.” Apple has used motion co-processors in the iPhone since the iPhone 5S in 2013. The first two (M7 and M8) were separate chips, but M9-M12 were integrated into the A-series processor. They process data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, barometer, and even enable the microphone to listen for “Hey, Siri.” Basically, it’s custom circuitry to process sensor info in a very high-performance and low-power way, so it can be done even while the phone is in sleep mode. According to a new report from MacRumors, the iPhone 11 will include a new sensor coprocessor that goes by the codenames “Rose” or “R1.” MacRumors has seen reference to it in code from an internal build of iOS 13. It supposedly performs a simi...

Chicago, IL – June 21, 2019 – Stocks in this week’s article are Avon Products, Inc. AVP, Hallmark Financial Services, Inc. HALL, DHI Group, Inc. DHX, Anglo American plc NGLOY and Toray Industries, Inc. TRYIY.  Selecting breakout stocks is probably one of the most favored techniques among active investors. The idea behind this kind of stock selection is to determine stocks that are trading within a narrow channel. These stocks are to be bought as soon as they move above this band and sold when they fall below. In case a stock moves above this band, it usually gains momentum. The first step to selecting the right breakout stock is to calculate its support and resistance level. A support level is the lower bound for stock movements while a resistance level refers to the maximum price which it trades within over a considerable period. In other words, the demand for a stock is at its lowest at its support level, which means most traders are willing to sell it. At the resistance level, most traders are willing to go long on the stock, which means that they would like to add them to their portfolios. The key to identifying breakout stocks is to zero in on those that are on the ve...
