Razer Respawn mental performance drink mix wants to up your game

first_img Post a comment Gaming Culture Wellness See All More from E3 • Most of the ingredients are the various B vitamins found in energy drinks and antioxidants.  But while Respawn is sugar free — it uses the artificial sweetener Sucralose — it has maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate that allows the powder to stay all powdery. That’s why it has 20 calories. But maltodextrin breaks down into… sugar. And it has a higher glycemic index than… sugar. So you may still get the spike and crash, and you definitely need to factor it in if you’re diabetic or on a keto diet. It really depends upon how much maltodextrin is in it.

Razer Razer launched an April Fool’s campaign in 2010 for a gamer-focused drink, Project Venom V2. It turns out that seemed like such a good idea to some people that the company turned it into a real product in time for t his year”s E3, Razer Respawn (not to be confused with Jedi: Fallen Order developer Respawn Entertainment). But don’t call it an “energy drink” — it’s a “mental performance drink mix” that “contains premium ingredients that help support increased focus, reaction time, and mental stamina.”Respawn comes in single-serving powder packets that you mix with 16-20 ounces of water. A box with 20 packets of an individual flavor runs $25 (at Razer and Amazon); flavors are green apple, tropical pineapple, pomegranate watermelon and blue raspberry. You can also spring for the $30 custom shaker, which does not support Chroma, but that would be awesome. According to Razer, a serving has 20 calories and 95mg of caffeine. The full ingredient list is:Maltodextrin, Citric Acid, Green Tea Extract, Sucralose, L-theanin, Choline Bitartrate, Caffeine, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Ground Ginger, Modified Corn Starch, Corn Syrup solids, Niacinamide, D-calcium Pantothenate, Silicon Dioxide, Blue No. 1, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Cyanocobalamin.Razer distinguishes Respawn from energy drinks, saying “they tend to have excessive caffeine and sugar, giving you an initial burst but eventually leading to jitters or a physical crash.”   0 As for caffeine, one serving of sugar-free Red Bull has 80mg; Respawn’s 95mg of caffeine for a single serving is higher, but because the serving size is bigger (16-20 oz vs. 8.5 oz for Red Bull), math makes the amount smaller if you look at it by volume instead of serving size. The equivalent amount of Red Bull has 150mg or so. (In either case, they’re both less than the approximately 330mg in my morning coffee.)Razer does caution not to drink more than three servings per day.

The Shade Room a Top Instagram Celebrity and Gossip Publisher Unveils First

first_imgAccording to Nwandu, TSR has doubled revenue each year and is profitable — with a net profit margin of about 50%. The company’s advertising and sponsorship clients have included CoverGirl, GMC and McDonald’s. The L.A.-based company has about a dozen full-time employees. “We operate extremely lean and self-fund all of our projects,” she said.TSR’s regular mix of Instagram posts span breaking news, celebrity gossip and shade-throwing, and feel-good posts like TSR Positive Images.The Shade Room has in the past run afoul of some platforms’ rules and guidelines. Three years ago, Facebook briefly suspended TSR’s page over a copyright-violation claim. In 2017, TSR reportedly warned followers (in a later-deleted post) that it was in danger of having Instagram remove its account allegedly over The Shade Room’s support of the Black Lives Matter movement. And at some point in the last two years, The Shade Room’s initial Twitter account was suspended by the platform. Related Popular on Variety The bread and butter of The Shade Room — which the New York Times once called “Instagram’s TMZ” — has been curated viral posts. By contrast, the new shows will be longer-form video exclusively produced by the company.“The goal of the new programming is to give our audience what we feel they are lacking,” Nwandu said. “We want to give them curated digital programming that is tailored to their interests. “The series reinforce our commitment to providing entertainment that caters to black culture and allows us to collaborate even more closely with our Roommates, who truly make TSR feel like a family.”TSR’s shows are being produced by a two-woman team of veteran TV producer and Daytime Emmy-nominated showrunner Tarvenia “T” Jones (“Upscale with Prentice Penny,” “Divorce Court”) and Judith Nwandu, who is Angelica’s sister.Angelica Nwandu (who goes by Angie) will serve as executive producer on the three series, marking her latest foray as a writer and producer. Previously, she co-wrote the film “Night Comes On,” winner of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival NEXT Innovator Award and released by Samuel Goldwyn films last August.TSR doesn’t have a specific launch date for the trio of shows, some of which will be sponsored, according to Nwandu. Each series will run four or five episodes, each of which will range from 10-15 minutes.“Petty Court,” “Struggle Chef” and “F-boy Chronicles” were developed in-house. In the future, Nwandu said, TSR will reach out to its audience to solicit creative ideas and “we plan to give them the proper credit and opportunities.”Nwandu, 28, founded The Shade Room in 2014 from her parents’ home when she began posting celebrity gossip on Instagram. (According to bio, her Nigerian family wanted Nwandu to become a successful accountant rather than an internet-media entrepreneur.) TSR has only one outside investor: venture-capital firm Indie.vc, founded by Bryce Roberts, who also is managing director at O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV).

Study offers explanation for earthquakes setting off distant quakes

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers with Second University of Naples has developed a model that may help explain how it is that some earthquakes set off other earthquakes up to a thousand miles away. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they constructed a physical model, watched how it behaved under stress and then came up with their theory. More information: Dynamic Weakening by Acoustic Fluidization during Stick-Slip Motion, Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 128001 – Published 15 September 2015. dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.128001ABSTRACTThe unexpected weakness of some faults has been attributed to the emergence of acoustic waves that promote failure by reducing the confining pressure through a mechanism known as acoustic fluidization, also proposed to explain earthquake remote triggering. Here we validate this mechanism via the numerical investigation of a granular fault model system. We find that the stick-slip dynamics is affected only by perturbations applied at a characteristic frequency corresponding to oscillations normal to the fault, leading to gradual dynamical weakening as failure is approaching. Acoustic waves at the same frequency spontaneously emerge at the onset of failure in the absence of perturbations, supporting the relevance of acoustic fluidization in earthquake triggering. © 2015 Phys.org Earthquakes, as most everyone knows, happen when compressed rock slides against other rock along a fault line—but what researchers have struggled to understand is how or why some earthquakes seem to cause other earthquakes to occur, that are too far away to be chalked up to mere ground vibrations.To better understand what happens, the researchers set up some rocks in their laboratory, with some round granules between them—then applied pressure. As the rocks finally slipped, mimicking a real earthquake, the team recorded what happened with the grains between them. They found that they emitted acoustic waves. Next, they tried a similar experiment, but this time, broadcast a variety of acoustic waves in the vicinity of the grains—doing so revealed that for certain frequencies, the acoustic waves caused what the team describes as “lathering” where fluid-like motion occurred resulting in a sudden reduction in friction, causing the rocks on either side to slide against one another earlier than they would have otherwise. And that, the researchers suggest, might be what happens when one earthquake sets off another a long distance away—the sound waves created by one earthquake travel long distances to another site, cause the grains in a fault line they encounter to lather, and that is what sets off another earthquake. The lathering occurs, the researchers suggest, due to waves bouncing back and forth inside a fault.The results beg the question: Why don’t all earthquakes set off lots of other earthquakes in distant places? The answer, the team notes lies in the frequency of the acoustics waves—lathering only occurs for any given fault line within a certain narrow frequency range, and the impact they have will depend on the state of other fault lines—they have to be near ready to slip on their own.The idea put forth by the team should not be too difficult to study in real situations, as acoustic recordings that occur in the vicinity of earthquakes could be compared with those captured at distant sites that have what appear to be, related seismic events.
