DD Fitness: High protein breakfast recipes

first_imgBreakfast doesn’t have to be difficult.The one thing I ALWAYS teach the Rushe Fitness members is that they shouldn’t stress over food.It’s not worth it in the long run. The question that I get most, ALWAYS involves what to have for breakfast that is high in protein and tastes great.People tend to get bored of eggs, but this is because they usually run out of ways to cook them.Food should follow 3 rules.It should be; TastyVisually pleasingLeave you satisfied after.Why then, do the majority of diets involve the complete opposite and the ones that try and follow the rules above are usually too high in calories?It doesn’t make any sense to me.So, I am going to give you 5 recipes that are really easy to make, are full of flavour and will make you want to use them over and over again.JOIN OUR FITNESS COMMUNITY HERE AND GET ACCESS TO HUNDREDS OF RECIPES LIKE THESE!Overnight oats OVERNIGHT OATSYou can use a Mason jar for full effect and build the ingredients from the bottom up in layers.Ingredients:40g porridge oats100ml almond milk for moisture100g 0% Greek yogurt1tsp ground cinnamonBlueberries to top off the mix.Leave overnight and simply stir together the following morning and serve.

Ein Blick hinter die Kulissen mit einem Geocaching.com Volunteer Reviewer

first_imgVolunteer reviewers (English translation)Ehrenamtliche Reviewer unterstützen Geocaching.com, indem sie jedes Cachelisting prüfen und freischalten. Sie arbeiten hart. Als Geocacher kann man sich sein eigenes Abenteuer aus über 1,2 Millionen weltweit versteckter Caches auswählen. Jeder Geocache bietet einen individuell gestalteten Ausflug in die Umgebung und auf jedes Cachelisting hat einem Volunteer Reviewer einen prüfenden Blick geworfen.Dem internationalen Team der Volunteer Reviewer gehören über 200 Reviewer von Kanada bis Japan und zwischen Großbritannien und Südafrika an. Allein im vergangenen Jahr hat das aus Frauen und Männer bestehende Team über 250.000 Geocaches gepublished.Ehrenamtliche Reviewer wie Andreas Kramer (stash-lab) prüfen die Geocache-Listings bei Geocaching.com, um die Verlässlichkeit und Sicherheit dieser Freizeitaktivität zu erhalten. Geocaching.com Volunteer Reviewer sind in erster Linie Geocacher, die bereits lange bevor sie ehrenamtliche Reviewer wurden, in ihrer lokalen Geocaching-Szene eingebunden waren.Wir haben stash-lab, ein deutscher Volunteer Reviewer, interviewt, um herauszufinden, was den Reiz für jemanden ausmacht, der auf den Publish-Button klicken.stash-lab Volunteer ReviewerLatitude 47: Wie hast Du von Geocaching erfahren? Wann hast Du damit begonnen?stash-lab: Ich habe nach einer GPS-Maus für die Autonavigation gesucht. Während ich im Internet surfte, bin ich auf die Seite von Geocaching.com gestoßen. Als Kind habe ich gerne Schnitzeljagd oder Geländespiele mit Teamaufgaben gespielt. Als ich gelesen habe was Geocaching ist, war ich begeistert und wusste sofort, dass ich mein neues Hobby gefunden habe. Das war im September 2004. Allerdings dauerte es noch etwas, bis ich mein GPS-Gerät bekommen und damit meinen ersten Geocache gefunden habe.Latitude 47: Wann bist Du Reviewer geworden?stash-lab: Ich wurde 2007 gefragt, ob ich mir vorstellen könnte, Reviewer zu werden. Die Wahrheit ist, dass ich zu diesem Zeitpunkt noch gar nicht genau wusste, was ein Reviewer so macht, weshalb ich mir etwas Bedenkzeit erbeten hatte. Letztendlich habe ich mich dafür entschieden, da ich mir zu diesem Zeitpunkt sehr gut vorstellen konnte, das Spiel auf eine neue Weise zu unterstützen. Ich bereue diese Entscheidung nicht!Latitude 47: Wie würdest Du Deine Rolle als Volunteer Reviewer beschreiben?stash-lab: Es existieren so viele unterschiedliche Meinungen in der Community, über das, was ein Reviewer ist oder sein sollte. Neben dem Publishen von Caches gibt es für mich drei wesentliche Aufgaben: Ich muß verstehen, welches Anliegen sich hinter der Anfrage eines Cache Owners verbirgt, ich möchte geeignete Lösungsvorschlägen unterbreiten und drittens dabei stets freundlich und hilfreich für den Cache Owner sein.Latitude 47: Was denkst Du, was andere über die Volunteer Reviewer wissen sollten?stash-lab: Reviewer sind Menschen, Reviewer sind unterschiedlich, Reviewer sind nicht unfehlbar. Die große Mehrheit der Geocacher verhält sich uns gegenüber sehr respektvoll. Dafür möchte ich mich bedanken.Latitude 47: Ist Dir in Deiner Rolle als Reviewer schon mal etwas Lustiges oder Ungewöhnliches widerfahren?stash-lab: Ja klar! Ich möchte hier zwei Punkte erwähnen. Manchmal erhalte ich Reviewer-Notes wie z.B.: „Bitte sag mir bescheid, wenn Du vorbei kommst um den Cache zu prüfen. Ich versuche dann auch da zu sein.“ Ich reise gerne und viel, aber verständlicher Weise ist es mir nicht möglich, jeden Cache aufzusuchen, bevor ich ihn publishe.Und zum Zweiten: Im vergangenen Jahr konnte ich das GeoWoodstock VIII besuchen. Dort traf ich sehr viele Reviewer-Kollegen aus den USA und Kanada. Ich wurde unglaublich freundlich aufgenommen, wie bei einem großen Familientreffen. Das war wirklich außergewöhnlich.Latitude 47: Welchen Ratschlag gibst Du Geocachern, die einen Cache zum Reviewen einreichen?stash-lab: Bitte benutzt die Reviewer-Notes um relevante Informationen zu einem Cachelisting mitzuteilen. Diese helfen uns, die Listings zügiger zu bearbeiten. Ich finde Caches klasse, bei denen der Owner neue Ideen umsetzt. Dabei ist es hilfreich, wenn der Owner einige Erklärungen zu seinem Konzept anfügt. Wir müssen nicht zwangsläufig die Lösung eines Rätsels erfahren, aber es ist für uns Reviewer wichtig zu erkennen, dass es einen Weg gibt, um an Koordinaten zu kommen.Latitude 47: Gibt es noch etwas, was Du ergänzen möchtest?stash-lab: Geocaching ist für viele Menschen zu einem wichtigen Teil ihres Lebens geworden. Es ist beeindruckend, wie rasant die Entwicklung in den vergangenen 2 Jahren vorangeschritten ist, besonders in Deutschland. Aber Geocaching ist auch eine sehr junge Freizeitaktivität. Ich finde eine spannende Frage, wie sich Geocaching in den nächsten 5-10 Jahren entwickeln wird. Ich weiß nicht, welche Technologien die Zukunft noch bereit halten wird. Dennoch bin ich mir sicher, dass der Spaß an diesem Spiel anhalten wird, denn Geocaching bedient drei wichtige menschliche Grundbedürfnisse: die Natur, das Spielen und soziale Kontakte. Das ist faszinierend und ich freue mich, ein Teil dieses Spiels zu sein.Additional Links:Cache Listing RequirementsReview Process: Hiding a GeocacheCache Ownership: A Long-Term RelationshipSee the Geocaching.com video about the Basics of Hiding a Geocache.

The Secrets Behind the Sound Design of Blade Runner 2049

first_imgHere’s an in-depth look at the brilliant sound design and the incredible score that created the evocative tone of Blade Runner 2049.Above image via Soundworks Collection.A few of the minds behind the recent sci-fi neo-noir masterpiece, Blade Runner 2049, take us behind-the-scenes in this in-depth look at the creation of some of the sounds and orchestration. The film debuted this year to stellar reviews and maintained the spirit of the original while establishing its own form of masterful filmmaking. With a perfect blend of collaboration and direction, the post-production team created one of the best-sounding movies of the past decade. Let’s take a look at how they pulled it off. Life in the BackgroundImage via Warner Bros.One of the revelatory features of the original film was the diegetic sounds living and breathing in the environment of future Los Angeles. The sounds vary from multi-lingual advertisements to a looming voice detailing the wonders of life off-world. The future will be loud, jumbled, and inescapable in the heart of the crowded, wet metropolis that makes up the world of Blade Runner. This detail was not lost in the sequel. The new crew made sure to capture the same tone and environment, and the director, Denis Villenueve, had a major say in which aspects carried over in his contribution to the franchise. The sounds making up the background in Blade Runner 2049 are just as, if not more, important than the visuals of the film.The editor for Denis’s previous two films, Sicario and Arrival, Joe Walker closed his eyes and just listened to the audio of the film to figure out the pace and style. This precise attention to detail is how good films become great in the edit bay. The care and attention that went into Blade Runner 2049 is a testament to the importance of the relationship between directors, composers, and sound designers during post-production.Creating the SoundscapesImage via Soundworks Collection.In terms of pulling directly from the original film and creating their own soundscapes, the team took one major lesson from the Ridley Scott classic by blurring the lines between sound effects and score. The film’s supervising sound editor, Mark Mangini, discusses what it was like balancing originality while staying true to a new project:I began making very brooding musical textures that would underpin almost every scene. So if you listen in any given scene, even if its a talkie in a room, there are these languid kind of pads and tones that are reminiscent of things that Vangelis had done in the first film that you didn’t know were his score, and they weren’t really score they were his kind of sonic noodlings. So I created these sonic noodlings that were made from musical textures — things like wind chimes and guitars, winds, saxophones. But you wont know them as those sounds when you hear the film. But you’ll get this sense that there’s a brooding tone that creates an atmosphere, a mood . . . and you don’t know what it is, but it fills the scene with a kind of feeling.This simplicity in instrumentation and methodology came directly from Denis. Perhaps the director’s greatest contribution to the post-production process of the film was his input for how Blade Runner 2049 would feel and sound. Luckily for all of us who have seen the film, the minimal approach was the right choice. If there are traditional science fiction sounds, like your bleeps and your blorps, Denis looks away. This simple-yet-profound take on telling stories in a different way is what sets Denis apart from the other directors working today.Recording the SoundsImage via Soundworks Collection. To create the massive soundscape, the sound editors curated a massive library of 2,600 sound elements for the film. Mangini went full-blown DIY, crafting some of the most simple, seemingly obvious sounds and turning them into something special.To create the sounds for the car that K (Ryan Gosling’s character) drives, Mangini put a subwoofer in his wife’s car and let it rattle throughout the rough, weathered audio that makes the vehicles in Blade Runner feel so lived-in. The ingenuity didn’t stop there. In order to accurately capture the rain for the film, Mangini crafted his own recording device that avoided unwanted rain splatters on the microphone.I wanted to be in the middle of rain so I could capture an immersive recording of seven channels of microphones. So I built a custom rig that would protect the microphones in about a 1 meter square of absorptive material and separation material so you wouldn’t hear the splatter on top of the microphone. So I captured an extraordinary array of heavy deluges and little trickles and drips in seven-channel discrete. With a Holophone H1, I ended up building a rig of my own with Schoeps CCM microphones to capture that.Image via Soundworks Collection.This type of thinking is what wins people jobs — and Oscars — but the creativity didn’t stop there. To record the sound of the new pistols that our hero would be using, the team was not particularly fond of the sound from the original. So instead they decided to record a .50-caliber sniper rifle and combine the sound with an EDM bass drop to capture the blast they were looking for. If you’ve seen the film, you know how loud and intense the blasts are. These loud, staggering sounds are almost as impressive as the beautiful and haunting score that supports the entire film.Composing the ScoreImage via Soundworks Collection.Crafting the score of the new film was one of the most difficult elements of the original film to adapt for this go-around. The original soundtrack, composed by Vangelis, featured a heavy synth, futuristic, science fiction-tone that would be easy to replicate today. However, the composers for Blade Runner 2049 knew that they had to create something completely original — while honoring Vangelis’s score. Like the original, the team used the CS-80 synthesizer, which is half-analog, half-electronic. This allowed them to create a mesmerizing score that could stand out on its own.(If you’re interested in creating your own sci-fi neo-noir low-budget masterpiece, check out our curated, synth-heavy Blade Runner-inspired playlist here.)Denis’s film is a masterclass in everything from storytelling to cinematography to editing and, especially, to sound design. His work speaks for itself, ranking among the greats, and we’re only at the beginning of his career. One can’t help but feel the best is yet to come from this director, and if he keeps surrounding himself with inspiring, creative, and boundary-pushing individuals, we’re all in good hands.(Final note, here’s one Hans Zimmer playing the CS-80 for what might be one my favorite moments in a video ever.)Image via Soundworks Collection.Looking for more on Blade Runner 2049?
