Beer: Best Sipped Cool, Not Cold

Beer: Best Sipped Cool, Not Cold | Variety Magazine | Scoop.it
If it has to be served "ice cold" it probably isn't a good beer.

Instead Daniel Kahn, brew master for Buckbean Brewing Company, a microbrewery in Reno, Nevada, says all beer should be served at 55-degrees Fahrenheit. "Because when it's too cold it numbs your taste buds, which in turn affects how you taste the flavors - or really, how you don't taste them," he explains.

So throw out what you know about a frosty mug of beer, to completely appreciate the vast array of brews being produced today let them warm a couple of degrees.

The Brewers Association classifies beers into two categories: ales - where the yeast ferments on top examples include IPA, pale ale, porter, stout - and lagers - where the yeast ferments on the bottom as in pilsners, Bocks or dark lagers.

Kahn knows a lot about both types. His two-year-old brewery began by producing one of each: a Bavarian Schwarz bier Lager called Black Noddy Lager and zesty ale called Original Orange Blossom Ale. These are beers that offer huge flavors; they're meant to be sipped, not chugged. Chilling them too much does more than numb your taste buds, "If you serve your beer too cold the gases don't release and you miss out on the aromas, which also affects taste." He says the next time you have a beer - or eat anything for that matter - plug your nose. You'll find your sense of smell is responsible for a lot of the flavor.

And that in turn leads to those big guys - the ones who have tapped the Rockies and parade around a team of Clydesdales. Kahn says the reason they include a "cold activated label" is so you don't notice what's lacking, "If you served them at warmer temps you'd then taste the complete lack of taste and flavor in them. When served cold nobody knows the difference."

But, no one knows more about drinking a pint than the British who serve their beer at room temperature. Buckbean's Kahn says that's slightly inaccurate. It's true they don't ice their beers like Americans, instead they store them in cellars, "It's not going to be warm by any means. Basically they don't make the extra effort to cool their beers like we do."

So go ahead and enjoy a few cold ones, just not too cold.

House Cleaning Tips (with Video)

House Cleaning Tips (with Video) | Variety Magazine | Scoop.it
Using the wrong materials to clean valuable items in your home can quickly destroy them. Gisela Lowenstein, president and founder of The Glow System, shared with us the following tips and advice on how to clean and organize a home. The Glow System is an instructional DVD that teaches viewers how to clean and organize quickly and efficiently.

Here are a few of Lowenstein's favorite housekeeping tips:

First, organize a "cleaning caddy" or container that is stocked with supplies.

Invest in specialized cloths. Terry cloths are ideal for cleaning wet areas, while felt cloths are recommended for very delicate areas, such as a piano, to prevent scratches. Microfiber cloths work well for wet or dry areas and are perfect for capturing dust on delicate and smooth surfaces.

When cleaning appliances such as the oven or refrigerator, use dishwashing liquid or baking soda with warm water.

When cleaning bathroom accessories, such as the toothbrush holder, be sure to dishwashing liquid and water, rather than a strong cleaning agent.

Preserve your stone floors by only using PH neutral cleaning products.

Use a soft cloth or sponge with water to clean granite countertops. Do not clean with acidic chemicals, such as vinegar, lemon or lime juice, as they can be abrasive. Likewise, do not use bleach, ammonia or degreasing substances, as they may damage finishes.

Clean art frames with a soft bristle brush.

Avoid using chemicals when cleaning microwave ovens or refrigerators, as they may contaminate food.

Use soda bicarbonate to clean certain kitchen appliances.

Use an antibacterial cleaner on door hardware, such as door knobs.

Clean windows with vinegar and water. Mix one part vinegar to three parts water. This is a chemical free alternative to using a glass cleaner.

Clean your flat screen television screen with a soft clean cloth, such as a chamois. Do not use a paper towel. For more information, see "Cleaning a Flat Screen TV".

Watch the brief video below from The Glow System to learn how to safely clean doors and wall moldings.

Skype goes down globally, investigation underway (update: restored)

Skype goes down globally, investigation underway (update: restored) | Variety Magazine | Scoop.it
There's a pretty widespread outage of Skype going on right this minute, judging by the explosion of tweets relating to it. It's not universal, as we've been able to log in and use the internet communicator for both text and video chat, but something's definitely gone wrong. So far, we've noticed our OS X machines are ticking along just fine, but our Windows computers are not. Importantly, we had to upgrade one of our Windows desktops to "break" Skype, which indicates it could be a fault contained in the latest version, but then again, it could have simply been just a case of terrible timing. The iPhone and Android apps look to be unaffected, but skype.com is down and out. Skype is on the case right now and will have more details for us "soon."

Segredos da Área 51: exército americano usou aviões falsos de papelão para enganar os russos | Gizmodo Brasil

Segredos da Área 51: exército americano usou aviões falsos de papelão para enganar os russos | Gizmodo Brasil | Variety Magazine | Scoop.it
Vários documentos sobre as ações da Área 51 durante a Guerra Fria foram abertos, e a National Geographic descobriu que os militares americanos usavam um método de baixíssima tecnologia para enganar os russos. O truque envolvia papelão, o calor ocasional e satélites infravermelho.
A Área 51 era o centro do projeto OXCART, um avião espião. Os russos também usavam a mesma tecnologia. Eles sobrevoavam a base com satélites espiões para saber o que os EUA andavam aprontando. Só que o exército americano acabou descobrindo a espionagem sobre sua base, permitindo que os militares fizessem os testes mais críticos na hora certa. Quando um satélite russo sobrevoava o local, a equipe movia o avião secreto para um galpão protegido.
No entanto, a parte mais interessante aconteceu quando os russos conseguiram um desenho do projeto OXCART por meio de satélites infravermelho. Quando um avião era estacionado no deserto quente da Área 51, sua sombra criava uma silhueta mais fria por causa da sombra, e o formato ficava visível por meio de infravermelho quando ele era removido do local. Assim, os americanos bolaram um plano bem criativo:
