Glycated sugar: Why it kills skin and what to do about it
Skin Inc.
Sugar. How sweet it is — and how deadly! Sugar has become a widespread addiction. On average, Americans consume 150 pounds of sugar each year. The average adult shovels down 22 teaspoons of sugar each day, and the average child consumes 32 teaspoons daily. Call it sugar, glucose, high-­fructose corn syrup, molasses, sorbitol or a variety of other names ... it doesn't matter — you wind up with lots of calories and zero nutritional value.

Broadwater: Radio frequency treatment tightens skin
The Clarion-Ledger
Guest columnist Barbara Broadwater writes: Not so long ago — more like 20 years ago — I was introduced to Botox. Not the most pleasant experience. However, the results are lineless. When I was a young adult, many current noninvasive treatments and procedures did not exist. Thanks for modern technology! The aging process can now be altered without going under the knife and little or no down time. With radio-frequency treatment, you can be done on your extended lunch break.

TEACHING TIPS


The big picture of education technology: The Padagogy Wheel
TeachThought
Teaching is a matter of design. That's not new, but in an era of change and possibility, it's more apparent now than ever. The SAMR model — which acts as a kind of continuum to reflect the possibilities of technology in learning — is a helpful tool to make sense of this idea, a visual reminder that ideally technology moves beyond Substitution phase (the "S") towards a Redefinition (the "R") of what was previously impossible without it. This, among other shifts, will help fully realize the potential of learning technology.
