Deficiency may even be a contributing factor for the greater prevalence of heart disease and diabetes among African-Americans (dark skinned peoples have much more difficulty synthesising vitamin D from sunlight). Nearly 100% African Americans have insufficient Vitamin D. Nearly 1 in 3 are severely deficient. (study)
Well the good folks at Roadtripper just added a cool new feature
Forget highways, cruise these byways
To me, it doesn’t get much better than cruising America’s backroads and scenic byways.
In fact, we love it so much, we just had to build a new feature for Roadtrippers: scenic drives. Yup, now you can add short drives to your trip (and static points of interest)! Just head to the fancy new ‘Scenic Drives’ category under Find Places and see how rad it is for yourself. For your added convenience, here’s a huge button you should press if you like scenic drives…
And just to make sure you’re feelin’ it, we sent out some dude named Joel to timelapse the Columbia River Scenic Byway in Oregon, complete with awe-inspiring waterfalls! Click below for an eyeball massage…
Who needs a computerized fountain when you’ve got a dozen teenagers with Super Soakers? This ad for a pool chemical company is much more fun than their regular videos about how to take care of your pool. -via Buzzfeed
Where do you want to go this summer – hiking along the Oregon coast or surfing the Snake River, stargazing in the darkest corners of the Allegheny Mountains or exploring late-night Chicago? We scoured the USA in search of every state’s hidden summer gem. All you have to do is get there.
As before, you just enter the starting point and destination for your upcoming road trip, and Roadtrippers will prepare a Google Maps route to get you from A to B. From here, you can specify how far off the beaten path you’re willing to go, and which types of attractions, historical sites, restaurants, and more that you’re interested in seeing along the way. The map will then populate with pins to point out great places to check out during your drive.
The level of granularity available is impressive. Only interested in seeing amusement parks and microbreweries? You can filter the map down to just these options. Every point of interest also includes a place page with a crowdsourced “Rad-O-Meter reflecting the views of the Roadtrippers community. If you’re just interested in browsing, the site also includes some handpicked guides that curate points of interest into unique tours. Want to visit the shooting locations of every American-filmed James Bond scene? RoadTrippers has you covered.
When you’re ready to hit the road, you can even save your itinerary and pull it up on Roadtripper’s iPhone app. Unfortunately, you can’t plan new routes on the app, but you can check out attractions nearby, and pull up the directions you found on the web.
So what do you when you have a day off and a $300k camera package sitting at your house? Invite all of the neighborhood kids and throw a water balloon party of course! Duh!
As summer coms to an end and Autumn begins, kids go back to school and dream of warm days filled with laughter and joy. This short film is a reflection of that dream. Shot with a Phantom Flex it captures the magic of the moment. With frame rates of up to 2564 fps at 1080p we see every detail, every smile and every sparkle in the kids eyes. And that is where the magic lies. Within the hopes and dreams of our children.
