MOOCs give higher education a run for its money | Interestingly ... | Scoop.it
"The cost of higher education is drowning students in debt, but college degrees are increasingly important in careers. Massive open online courses (MOOCs), offering free to low-cost online college classes, might have the solution for students. But how MOOCs might change traditional higher education and post-secondary credentials is less clear."

The Right and Wrong Way to Eat Chia Seeds

The Right and Wrong Way to Eat Chia Seeds | Interestingly ... | Scoop.it

There's good reason chia seeds have been on everyone's minds these days. These tiny seeds are high in protein, fiber, calcium, antioxidants, and omega-3s, but there is a right and wrong way to eat them, and one man recently learned the hard way."

In one patient case study, one man experienced intense dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, after ingesting a tablespoon of dry chia seeds and chasing it with water. One of the reasons chia seeds are touted for weight loss is because they expand multiple times their size in water and help you feel full for longer. However, taking down a dry tablespoon and chasing it back with H2O is not going to lead to a comfortable experience, since they don't have time to reach your stomach to expand.

Street food in Italy

Street food in Italy | Interestingly ... | Scoop.it
All those who enjoy living the city, walking around, and don't really care about spending much time sitting down to have a meal, will be glad to know that street food has now become a trend in a lot of Italian towns. Many Italians remember with fondness early morning stops at food stalls after a night out clubbing, each peddler selling panini outside strategic places: hot sandwiches and fresh pizza slices consumed standing up or in the car, watching the sunrise with friends, and looking forward to a sunday spent in bed.Today, street food seems to be living a second youth: it has become, all of a sudden, en vogue. It is a time saver during the week, when work or school may take up much of the day; it often represents an alternative to conventional meals and can be a pleasant change from routine. It is also cheap, a great characteristic in these days of crisis. [...]
