The Game of Thrones season finale was tonight, and I thought this picture was a pretty apt analogy of the insurgent role software is starting to play in a business' ability to dominate not just their industry, but multiple industries:
Amazon is now closing on its acquisition of Whole Foods, and this WSJ article headline sums up the impending carnage that acquisition will cause in the retail sector:
I've been doing a longer experiment with ketosis for about two years now. I started naturally slipping into ketosis when I started intermittent fasting and found that I really loved the way it felt.
Most people have very little knowledge of what ketosis is and how it works -- if they've ever even heard the term at all. If you fall into that camp and would like a quick primer, this Reddit "Keto in a Nutshell" is a great place to start.
Here's an update on what I've learned after experimenting with putting my body into a regular state of low-grade (~1 to 1.5 millimolar) ketosis for the past two years:
This is what I looked like back in 2010. I weighed 250 lbs, a 38" waist and I was on the verge of metabolic syndrome -- and I didn't even know what that meant until 2015. If you're not sure either, but your numbers are like mine, this would be a very good time to read up about it, because those with metabolic syndrome are at a 5x higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, and 2x the risk of cardiovascular disease.
I've been on a journey to find the absolute best commuting scooter with the right combination of cost, power and size. I had very high hopes for Cycleboard, but had a horror story of an experience with them and absolutely cannot recommend them for a multitude of reasons, including:

I've been using the same Onyx A/M 24 Deluxe inflatable life jacket for over 3 years now. I've enjoyed it so much that I just purchased another Onyx A/M 24 for a family member. The Deluxe has side pockets whereas the non-Deluxe does not. Below is a quick review and some pictures. You can buy the Non-Deluxe version for just under $100 on Amazon. The Deluxe version isn't currently available via Prime but you can still buy it from these sellers.
What I love about this inflatable life jacket is that it has both "automatic" and "manual" inflation modes, and it's easy to switch between the two. I talk about that in the video. The jacket uses a compressed air cylinder and the entire unit is very compact.
This isn't an offshore-ready jacket, but it's great for coastal cruising.
Here are some pics of the Deluxe & non-Deluxe jackets:
