Strain on eyes: black on white or white on black

Reading vs. Scanning

When it comes to text on websites, users either read or scan. Reading involves focusing on words for a thorough comprehension of the subject. Scanning involves skimming the words for a broader comprehension of the subject. When you should use white text on a dark background depends on whether users are scanning or reading text.

Paragraph Text

The kind of text that users read is paragraph text. You should avoid using white text on a dark background when displaying paragraph text to make it easier from them to read. Forcing users to fixate on the white text for a long time can strain the user’s eyes. This is because white stimulates all three types of color sensitive visual receptors in the human eye in nearly equal amounts [source]. This makes reading white paragraph text on dark backgrounds stressful on the user’s eyes.

This guy says the opposite

How to Reduce Computer Eye Strain by Switching to High Contrast (Windows 7)

The high contrast themes change the background to black and the text to white. This high contrast theme is vastly easier on the eyes and reduces eye strain. If you’re looking at a monitor for extended periods, this will make your day easier. It will seem weird at first, but give it a try! You will wish you had found this sooner!

Will all the Health Tips of yore debunked by Science, be eventually proved by Science

This is in context to the widely publicized fact that Cold Temperatures don’t increase the chances of a person catching cold…There have been case studies and stuff that i’ve read on this, and being a student of science, believed it…

But this week i read another article from MIT or someplace that proved that cold temperatures do increase the replication potential of rhinovirus, which causes cold….

So i’m wondering if all Health Tips of yore debunked by Science, be eventually proved by Science itself…is Science Trustworthy?

Clearly, history stands testament to the fact that Science Theories have been replaced by Better conflicting theories over time…Better wait for the Theory Of Everything…

Hi,

So today is saturday, and upon opening my fridge to find something sweet….i chanced upon a packet of wheat bread due to expire today and 5 day old curd..and God knows that i haste wasting stuff specially food…
So when my principle won against my infinite laziness and strogest will to not do anythig in life, but just watch stuff on ly lappy all day….
I cut some beans and decided to make a curd + beans + spices paste that would serve as sauce with the Bread…

So that’s what i started mking ..but then wanted to mash the beans into a paste..for this i mixedit in a mixer and put in the curd  + spices and cooked for 15 min….

Then as i had forgotten to add oil to it before..i think for the best..i decided to fry it in a pan for 5 min …once done..i put it between the bread and then added some red sweet-sour chutney and bon apetite….

Prevent Belching

Tried:

Rantac
Avoid foods that cause gas, such as beans, broccoli, cabbage, and bran
Milk (as that’s how it started 2 days back)
avoid fizzy drinks
Drinking a lot of water is a natural way to help prevent bloating and associated gas and is free. Drinking a lot of water will help your body process foods faster and can help eliminate the issues associated with digestive problems such as gas.
To Try:
You should also do some exercises for simple and natural ways to relieve gas problems. You can lay down on your back and pull your legs up to your chest to help get the air out of your stomach naturally. Doing light exercises after you eat will also help your digestive process and can prevent bloating and gas. By moving around and doing light exercise after you eat you are helping circulation and blood flow which is good at preventing gas.
Ginger
Cinnamon

Who am I

NOTE: This post was originally published on my now discontinued blog: discventionsfood.wordpress.com on 8/29/2013 9:31

Hi,

Being the first post and all..it’s my obligation to tell you a bit about myself…

1. I am foremost, a person who lives by : “We eat to live and not live to eat” pronciple

2. I am no fan of the human body and will be happy to migrate to a robotic body if i can keep my brain and senses…

3. In the light of above fact, i am mad at the limitations of my body and its infinite vulnerabilities and quirks..and most of all its perishable nature that gets me infinitely mad all day long….mortality  and emotions are the only things that prevent humans from ruling the universe…

4. In a line “I wish  was a robot”..so that among other things i would not have to start this Food Blog…
