How to Make Vegan Butter
Butter is one of those ingredients that can be so central to baking that as soon as some people hear the term vegan baking they wonder aloud almost in a panic, “what about the butter?!” Many vegan baked items get along great with fats like canola, coconut oil or even olive oil. These types of fats work wonders for cakes, cookies, bars and breads. When designing recipes where we need something to act like butter, things start to get complicated. Solid fats like butter and margarine are integral to things like puff pastry, pie crust, shortbread, croissants, danish dough and certain cakes. This is because in these cases the fat is used to coat the flour so gluten doesn't develop too much and also trap air bubbles to enhance leavening and texture. The only option in these instances is to turn to a margarine or similar vegan butter that is solid at room temperature and gets soft as it melts so it blends to one cohesive mass of dough.

Web Typography for non-designers
Although a lot of today’s web content is highly interactive and image-based, language–and thus words–is still the basic means of expression on almost every single web page. Hierarchies upon hierarchies of titles and sentences, pages, paragraphs, columns, all prove the fact that the main course of this whole feast is none other than text. And as each and every gastronomy critic knows, presentation matters, especially when it comes to your entree.

Nature.com: Dietary emulsifiers impact the mouse gut microbiota promoting colitis and metabolic syndrome
Here we report that, in mice, relatively low concentrations of two commonly used emulsifiers, namely carboxymethylcellulose and polysorbate-80, induced low-grade inflammation and obesity/metabolic syndrome in wild-type hosts and promoted robust colitis in mice predisposed to this disorder.

Wikipedia.org: Kvitten
Kvitten (Cydonia oblonga) är ett lövfällande träd inom familjen rosväxter och ensam art i släktet Cydonia. Dess frukt är lik ett stort äpple, med fastare fruktkött som bland annat används till marmelad. Kvitten var välkänd i medelhavsregionen redan under antiken. Kvitten är ej att förväxla med den i Sverige mer välkända rosenkvitten som den dock är nära besläktad med.

The early line-up of the Gang Starr Foundation in the mid-1990s included Jeru The Damaja, Group Home, Big Shug, and Gang Starr. Premier was fully responsible for the production of Jeru the Damaja's first two albums, The Sun Rises in the East and Wrath of the Math. Jeru released three subsequent albums that did not include Premier's involvement.[1] In terms of his Group Home collaboration, Premier commented in a 2003 interview: "They [Group Home] don't respect what fed them." He further explained that he only agreed to produce the track "The Legacy" because of Guru's involvement.

Of the nearly 24 million people in Shanghai, just 250 of them have motorcycle sidecars. The government won’t license any more, a decision that has created an unusually small niche of avid riders. French photographer Aurélien Chauvaud documents these quirky aficionados and their eclectic rides in his meticulously composed series Shanghai Sidecar Riders.

Nytimes.com: Corrections - Vending Machine for Crows
The Times has since learned that Klein was never at the Binghamton Zoo, and there were no crows on display there in June 2008. He performed these experiments with captive crows in a Brooklyn apartment; he told the reporter about the Brooklyn crows but implied that his work with them was preliminary to the work at the zoo. Asked to explain these discrepancies, Klein now says he and the reporter had a misunderstanding about the zoo.

Seriouseats.com: Better Than Parm? Dried Olive and Miso May Be the Ultimate Pasta-Topper
I didn't have to worry. This stuff is fantastic. Like, so good that I couldn't stop myself taking big pinches of it and just dropping it in my mouth. There are a few pantry staples I make at home—furikake, fried garlic, fried shallots—that I have to make while my wife is away and hide them on shelves that are too tall for her to reach because if she could get at them, they'd be gone in a day. This is one of those preparations.

Signal (TextSecure) iOS
TextSecure encrypts your text messages over the air and on your phone. It's almost identical to the normal text messaging application-running completely over the data channel, and is just as easy to use. It has group chats, avatars, animated gifs, emoji, everything you need to make an impression securely.

The project has been extremely active, including a sprint during the Winter Break of Code 2014 and is approaching launch. We are extremely excited to bring this important product to the iPhone, widely recognized as the solution for encrypted messaging for the masses.

Please track our work on github where you are welcome to contribute code, documentation, discussion, localization, or monetary (bitcoin) support. We're completely transparent with the effort, having all our conversations publicly in github issues, so just dive in.

Google Webfonts, The Spy Inside?
It’s all about metadata after all. By itself, on one single website, this may seem harmless. But by collecting and merging the metadata of several websites comprehensive tracking becomes possible. And not only that – the fact that the WordPress folks now embedded Open Sans only in the back-end allows Google to gain a valuable attribute – it finds out whether there is a working relationship between the account (the owner) and the website.

Vimeo.com: Cold Storage
Alain Resnais’ 1956 documentary, All the World’s Memory, presents the French National Library of the mid twentieth century as a cathedral consecrated to the glories of the book. Since that time, the digital revolution has been insufficient to absorb the growth of knowledge. And so formidable offsite storehouses have arisen to complement browsable libraries, preserving their holdings under delicate balances of climate. The towering shelves and expanding sprawl of one such storehouse, the Harvard Depository, grant a vantage point from which to contemplate the future of libraries as networked points of access to past and present for the generations of scholars to come.

News.ycombinator.com: Lenovo Caught Installing Adware on New Computers
This is much worse than just installing adware. They install a web proxy which MITMs all web connections, including HTTPS by means of a pre-installed trusted root certificate.

The root certificate is the same across all installs, and the private key is present on the machine (necessarily, to operate the proxy): https://twitter.com/fugueish/status/568258997578371072

Someone will extract the private key in the next few hours, and then HTTPS will be basically completely broken for all Lenovo users -- anyone will be able to spoof any site to them.

Uninstalling the app does NOT remove the certificate: https://twitter.com/metsfan/status/568265468173107200

On the bright side, Firefox does not use the system certificates (it has its own list) and Chrome will no doubt push an update to block the certificate promptly.

Scientificamerican.com: Pop Culture Pulsar: Origin Story of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures Album Cover [Video]
Sure, I was familiar with the graphic—and I’m not alone. Drop this image on someone’s desk and chances are they’ll reflexively blurt, “Joy Division.” The band’s 1979 Unknown Pleasures album cover leaned entirely on a small mysterious data display, printed in white on black. No band name, album title or other identifiers. An interesting move for a debut studio album.

Wikipedia.org: Relations between Nazi Germany and the Arab world
In speeches, Hitler made apparently warm references towards Muslim culture such as: "The peoples of Islam will always be closer to us than, for example, France". A famous anecdote about Adolf Hitler's perspectives towards Islam and the Arabs is recounted by Albert Speer in his best-selling memoir, Inside the Third Reich. Speer reports that "Hitler had been much impressed by a scrap of history he had learned from a delegation of distinguished Arabs."
