Jayson Naylor’s murals are easy to recognize for his use of bold, psychedelic colors and pop culture images wrapped around an uplifting message. This piece, which is on the side a store located at the northeast corner of Grand Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is called Indulge in Love. As you can see, Jayson has spelled out the word LOVE using images of things we all love to indulge in, such as  . . .

Jayson also a has a piece on the building behind this one, which is only partially visible from street level, so I’m afraid I cannot tell you what that one says. Indulge In Love went up in August of 2019.

Product Review: Crispy Green’s Delicious Crispy Fruit Snack

Crispy Fruit Apple

If you assume that Freeze Dried Fruit will taste anything like Dried Fruit, prepare to have your mind blown away completely when you taste Crispy Fruit — the worlds most delicious snack that comes in a bag. Just being serious.

We have been digging on Crispy Fruit since first discovering it at Food Fete Summer 2013, so, when we ran into the folks at Crispy Green (makers of Crispy Fruit) during July’s Summer Fancy Food Show, we made sure to say pretty please when requesting a box of Crispy Fruit to review.

Crispy Fruit Assortment

Mission Accomplished.

Crispy Green freeze dried fruit snack comes in seven varieties including Apple, Asian Pear, Tangerine, Mango, Cantaloupe, Pineapple and Banana. Mmm, Crispy Banana – as much fun to say as it is to eat!

In every case, the fruit is light and crispy like a chip, but it still has a fresh fruit taste! They take all the juice out of it, but keep the flavor. Insane. How do they even do that? I do not know. The high quality packaging also locks in the “crunch,” keeping Crispy Fruit at its flavor peak.

Crispy Green Pamphlet

Crispy Fruit is the perfect way to satisfy your snack cravings while adding more fruit to your diet – all without additives or preservatives. Even kids who get fussy over having to eat fresh fruit will love Crispy Fruit! Also, it is low in calories at just 35 to 55 calories per serving! But the most important reason to try Crispy Fruit is that is just tastes so darn good!

I ate the above pictured Crispy Apple with a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch yesterday and it was heavenly. And doesn’t it look just like a sliced fresh apple? Sure it does.

Podcast Your Stuff and Broadcast Your Mind

What is Podcasting?

Podcasting can be used to broadcast many things, such as serial episodes, company profiles, news bulletins and other periodic or non-periodic audio-visual presentations or document files. In short, you can broadcast and receive anything that is on your mind! With podcasting, the possibilities of the kinds of things that can be shared are endless. You can share or download daily sitcoms, company presentations, weekly horoscopes, your favorite sports updates and interviews, live performances and what not.

Software like iTunes, available via Apple products such as the iPod, is a rapidly-spreading application that supports podcast. Now days, it is a regular feature in countries where bandwidth limitation is not an issue. Podcast can be used to view weekly interview series with a new person being interviewed every week. You just need to download the application of the particular program to receive regular updates of the same.

How Podcasting has Revolutionized Technology

Podcast allows the user to both send and receive clippings. Another important application used earlier was Radio Userland. Radio Userland also allowed live tours to be broadcast. Important experiments and discoveries, such as those of NASA, can also be telecast. The best thing about podcasting is that, unlike webcasting, things do not need to be streamed online all the time, and can be downloaded for future viewing, so that most of the things you need to view from the world of entertainment – news, sports and television – can now be easily viewed. But that’s not all; Podcasting can also be used for a variety of teaching and educational purposes.

Podcast for Educators

Teachers can record their lectures for fixed durations of time and podcast them to each and every student. There are many advantages of using this strategy. Firstly, it allows the teacher flexibility and time-independence; and if anything goes wrong, cuts and re-takes are allowed. Secondly, a student, who may be there in a different part of the world can access (or rather attend) the session. And if they are in different time zones, they do not have to wake up and spoil their night as the podcast can easily be saved, downloaded and accessed at any time.

Another major advantage of podcasting in teaching is that, since the clipping or presentation has been saved, the student can look up the lecture again and again, unlike conventional teaching, where the teacher just takes one class for a topic or a lesson, gives a limited amount of time to clarify any doubts and if the student is not good at retaining things, he or she might forget vital things taught in the class.

Students can also podcast their doubts or feedback and give the teacher enough time to emphasize the common issues as well as solve each student’s doubts individually. One might argue on whether so much dependency on technology is good or not, but the thing is when most of the things in today’s world are dependent on technology, and god knows what the scene will be some five years on, why not make the learning process simple as well? This way, students will also get to learn how to use podcast and similar technology to make things simpler for them.

Other Uses of Podcasting: The Possibilities Are Endless

A variety of content in order to increase likes on youtube  like marketing promos, political speeches, health awareness campaigns, and tours of places you can just dream of visiting can be telecast through podcasting. Podcasting also allows many new and independent aspirants or entrepreneurs to showcase their talent and popularize themselves, and make a way into other people’s pockets.

There are numerous uses of podcasting and it is for you to decide how it can be helpful for you. A very important feature in podcasting though is podcast editing. For software like Apple’s iTunes, the Garage Band is one of the applications that can be used for Podcast Editing. It is like an audio-visual workstation, which allows the users to edit pre-recorded or self-recorded podcasts at any time to help them make it innovative and creative. Also, if they want, the user can make the files in such a manner that only the person for whom it is meant can understand what is going on. Garage Band allows the user to create templates, add musical touches, record audio at different resolutions and mix waveforms. Volume levels can be balanced and altered to serve the purpose of the podcast.

If you have something useful on your mind, podcast it and let others know!

Ah, I get a little nostalgic for my long dead first iMac when I see how these (now ancient) iMac G3 carcasses have been gutted and re-purposed as pendant lighting for a travel agency called G Adventures. Clever!

Thanks to Neatorama For the Tip!

RIP Steve Jobs

Oh man, what a blow. Steve Jobs has passed away today, October 5, 2011, due to an as yet unspecified causes (read: Cancer), though he was known to be in poor health (Jobs struggled with pancreatic cancer for over a decade and underwent a liver transplant in 2009). He was 56 years old — way too young to go. Steve can at least rest in peace knowing he created the best personal computer in the universe.  The Worley Gig was created on an iMac and the Mac is the only brand of computer I will ever own.
