Music is an art which helps you escape reality. Listening to tracks and exploring new music genres, you can forget about your inner or surrounding problems, dive deeper into the pure sound and then come to conclusions you couldn’t face before. In this case music perfectly works as a kind of meditation. But what a bad thing: it is not always free, especially when it comes to iPhone. But on the other hand there still exist some free ways to get a lot of tracks and listen to them afterwards, and one of them is called Freemake Music Downloader.
It is an app for iOS. Designed for iPhone only, available for free on iTunes, here:
If you open the app you will discover that these seas of music discoveries are available here for free. You are able to enter the name of every song, band or artist in the search bar. This means that you will see a lot of tracks, all organized in the list for you to download. Search, listen & download MP3s. Free & legally. Play favorite songs offline, without Internet. All versions of the Freemake app get a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
The Fremake app searches the internet for free songs, gives you the ability to play those songs without the Internet. This app will definitely save you some money by not always buying music through iTunes.

EXPLODING KITTENS? When I heard about EXPLODING KITTENS I thought, how awful! Sure, it was supposed to be a card game, but I love cats and kittens and I couldn’t see how that would be a fun game as advertised. Wouldn’t that lead to more violence, this time against innocent little kittens? Wasn’t there already enough violence in this world that we live in? How could a card game called EXPLODING KITTENS possibly be a fun, family game, for children aged 7 and up?
Well, I guess the EXPLODING KITTENS team that created the game also had misgivings about the name, at least at first. They confessed that they were concerned about what people, like me, might think. Here is what they had to say under the heading, But You’re Blowing Up Kittens! Not Cool, Buddy:
“We struggled with this a lot. We love the name Exploding Kittens, but we don’t want to hurt kittens. We also don’t want the kittens to be hurt by anyone else. Eventually we decided to explore the concept of the kittens blowing themselves up…
“Our kitties would not blow up out of malicious intent or negligence, but by doing the things that kittens do, like running across keyboards or chewing on things they shouldn’t be chewing on.”
Okay, that was a lot more acceptable! Then I read that they also had developed cards that could be used to “defuse” the exploding kittens. The defusing cards were items that you would use to defuse a live kitten. One that I particularly liked was a “catnip sandwich” card. Cute, isn’t it!?! At that point, I began to get interested in how the game was structured.
How EXPLODING KITTENS Was Created and Is Played
EXPLODING KITTENS was created by Millennial gaming-industry veterans, Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel).
Here are the basics of the game, as stated on Kickstarter by Elan Lee:
“Exploding Kittens is a highly strategic kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. The deck is made up of cards that let you avoid exploding by peeking at cards before you draw, forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards, or shuffling the deck.
“The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw because fewer cards left in the deck means a greater chance of drawing the kitten and exploding in a fiery ball of feline hyperbole.”
The standard game is designed for ages 7 and up (as I stated above), but an adult version, listed as NSFW (Not Safe for Work, or X rated), was designed for players who are 35 and up. To be honest, I don’t really understand why you would need an adult version, or what the specific differences are. Nevertheless, they are both being made available to the public. EXPLODING KITTENS looks like it will be a very fun card game. Be sure to check it out.
Byber is a brand new app designed to help you meet new people, connect with friends and explore what your neighborhood has to offer. Byber helps you meet people in your neighborhood more easily.

Setting up your profile is easy. Just upload a picture of yourself and enter a short description. Now just sit back and relax and you will start to receive ‘drink offers’ it you set up an interesting profile. You will also receive ‘Byber Requests’ and RSVP to events. You can share and communicate your activity on Facebook and Twitter.
This is a very powerful app and I think it takes the concept of sites like Tinder to another level, but it’s all dependent on how many users are using the app. Anything that has to do with meeting people and/or dating is totally dependent on how many actual people are active on the app. This social networking app is brand new, just updated Jan 16, 2015. The idea is solid so I wish them the best of luck!

Are we ready for a world that includes gadgets not only for humans, but also for our pets? When I saw WonderWoof at CES this year I had to laugh. WonderWoof is the latest sensation in the doggie dog world that we live in. This revolutionary virtual diary allows dog owners to interact with their pet and other pet owners through an iOS app that also operates as a social media outlet for dogs.
Dog owners can connect with their pooch via a fashionable on-collar ‘bow-tie’ that transmits data from dog to diary through Bluetooth connectivity. The app tracks your dog’s whereabouts and monitors physical activity all while socializing with his or her doggie pals on Twitter. Users can create a profile for their dog, set health goals and objectives, track exercise and set reminders for veterinary visits, grooming appointments, play dates and more.
Do you miss your dog when you are not with him or her? If so, then Wonderwoof is definitely the app for you. It allows owners to stay close and snuggly with their pooch around the clock, even while they are away. Receive text messages from your dog to learn how and what he or she is doing and monitor behavioral patterns with updates sent right to your phone or tablet.
WonderWoof is also a fun and exciting way to motivate owners to spend more quality time with their companion. You and your dog can earn “bone bites and badges” for completing activities and achieving goals. The more activities you and your pet do together, the more badges you will earn.
The WonderWoof is not just a piece of wearable technology, but makes for a chic adornment as well. The bow tie is small, convenient and comfortable for your dog to wear and it is sure to be the talk of the dog park. So in this new world full of gadgets who knows, you and your dog may find a new playmate or romance.
Every January millions of us step on the bathroom scale and reality hits. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the holidays and eating everything that we have resisted all year. For most of us, we go from feast to famine and we dust off our gym membership and head back to the “exercise torture chamber.” The worst part is that we have the post- holiday blues, and where in the world did our energy go? We think, maybe it’s time to try that Paleo Diet we’ve been hearing about.
So What Really Is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo Diet, or Paleolithic Diet, is based on how it is believed our cavemen ancestors ate. The emphasis is on meat and fish that is not saturated with growth-stimulating antibiotics and hormones and fresh fruit and vegetables. The diet excludes dairy products, processed sugars, grains, trans fats and industrialized Omega-6 fats. Herein lies the objections of many dieticians and nutritionists. They claim that any diet that excludes certain food groups is not balanced. They also claim that there is no scientific proof that the Paleo Diet leads to a longer and healthier life.
Jennifer Andrus, a New York City nutritionist, says of the Paleo diet:
“It eliminates dairy, legumes and some other foods that can be a healthy part of one’s diet…I think processed food deserves the criticism, but probably not because we haven’t evolved; more likely because we eat too much of it and most of it is nutritionally void.”
The Paleo Diet and Recent Research
Most processed foods and packaged foods contain trans fats. Trans fats are man-made oils that cause inflammation. Scientific research has unearthed the fact that inflammation is behind many of our serious health problems such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, ADD/ADHD, strokes, migraines, thyroid issues, the list goes on and on. The Paleo Diet is a diet that avoids foods that cause inflammation. When we change our diet to a diet that is anti-inflammatory, such as the Paleo Diet, we can see immediate and dramatic health improvements. Another benefit of an anti-inflammatory diet is that people tend to lose weight.
Mark Sisson, a leading expert on anti-inflammatory diets and the Paleo Diet, says:
“Certainly use plants, vegetables as the main basis of the Paleo eating strategy. And then great sources of protein: so meat, fish, fowl, eggs, and so on, and then healthy fats.”
So, what does he mean by “healthy fats?” Aren’t all fats, especially saturated fats, bad for you? No. That is another thing that extensive recent research is unveiling.
Here is a list of the healthy fats that are encouraged by the Paleo Diet and thousands of doctors who have stayed current with the recent dietary research:
Nuts and seeds
Saturated fat in beef and pork
Dr. Eric Westman, of the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic, is one of those doctors who has changed his opinion due to the research results. He now says:
“In fact, saturated fat, the fat that we’ve been taught not to eat, raises your good cholesterol best of all the foods you can eat.”
So should you feel comfortable about using the Paleo Diet this year? Yes, but remember that balance in a diet is all important. Chris Kresser, author of the book, Your Personal Paleo Code, says:
“Some people like to abide by the 80/20 rule; if 80% of your diet is perfect, there’s wiggle room for the rest.”
