Hillsong Church is Getting Its Own TV Network | Kickin' Kickers | Scoop.it
Hillsong already has branches all over the world, but now the church is expanding its reach even farther. Hillsong Church is teaming up with Trinity Broadcasting Network to launch a new 24-hour TV network. The Hillsong Channel will launch to a global audience June 15, and will feature worship performances, messages from Christian leaders, conferences, documentaries, kids programs, talk shows and more.

"This new aspect of the Hillsong global vision is unlike anything we have launched up to this point," Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston said in a statement. "It'll be a continuous, 24-7 feed that will be exalting Jesus and empowering people for every part of life." 

In a statement, TBN Chairman Matthew Crouch said," This powerful new praise and worship network will offer an amazing opportunity for us to reach a whole new generation of viewers with the message of hope and grace as we partner with the most iconic and far-reaching presence in contemporary Christian music."

The new network will be available through a variety of cable providers, including Direct TV, Fios, AT&T and Sky.

Instagramming Your Food Makes It Taste Better, It's Science

Instagramming Your Food Makes It Taste Better, It's Science | Kickin' Kickers | Scoop.it
According to a recent study in the Journal of Consumer Marketing, time spent photographing your delectable plate of artisan food creates a “momentary active delay in consumption,” which then heightens your appreciation of the food. It's a concept that mirrors delayed gratification, the idea that the longer you have to wait for something, the more grateful you are for it when you can indulge. Unfortunately, though, while pausing for a quick photo session with your open-faced ahi tuna sandwich on rye makes it taste all the better, the momentary active delay in consumption won't work on food that is already bad, like the disaster of the chicken piccata you tried to make last night. According to the CBC, “under normal conditions, this effect only works for indulgent food.” So, food grammers, allow yourselves to feel vindicated but you should know that no matter how much better it makes the food taste, it's still really annoying.
