    Your Apple Watch is about to get the nearest thing to a brain transplant this fall. Apple’s watchOS 3, (announced on Monday at WWDC 2016) represents a fundamental rethinking of Apple’s only wearable. It's a concerted effort to clarify the sometimes confusing navigation, stop trying to control everything and to acknowledge that clever doesn't always equal useful.   SEE ALSO: The Apple Watch's iconic app screen isn't dead, but it is getting demoted "" name="google_ads_iframe_/6692/" width="1" height="1" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no"> It's not that Apple Watch wasn't already a very good wearable device. But, for most people, the utility had narrowed down to notifications, reminders to stand-up and regular alerts about your level of activity ("Look, I closed a ring!"). Watch OS 2.0, which arrived late last year, added important features like third-party complications, HomeKit device access and, of course, access to native hardware for third-party apps. However, that last update also revealed a major weakness: These apps simply couldn’t load fast enough. Pre-loading oft-used apps in memory, as watchOS 3 promises to do, is going to make a major difference on that front, but I think it's some of the other upcoming watchOS 3 changes that will have the biggest impact on Apple Watch's overall utility.   A fresh face In some small ways, Apple Watch is becoming a bit more like the iPhone, meaning that watchOS is inheriting the best parts of iOS. A swipe up from the bottom of the watch will now reveal a control panel, just like on the iPhone. The Dock, which reveals cards of your most-used apps, looks a bit like the apps screen you get when you double-press the iPhone’s Touch ID button. (A swipe down from the top still gives access to notifications, something Apple got right with the Apple Watch from day one.) But there are even bigger, more fundamental and strategic changes. As my colleague Raymond Wong has noted thoroughly, a number of key functions, for instance, have been demoted or recast.       The Apple Watch home screen and its lovely cluster of app bubbles becomes an artifact of a failed user interface experiment. You’ll still be able to access it, but only when you press the digital crown. The Friends Circle that used to come up when you pressed the side button is dead, but the digital touches it encouraged (drawing, sending heartbeats) will have a new life in the much more powerful and cohesive iOS message system. Take Scribble, which turns finger swiping into drawings or handwriting. Scribble is now more or less the same between Apple mobile devices, but there's an extra wrinkle in watchOS 3: It will let you write an custom message one letter at at time — for those instances were the boilerplate responses aren't enough. (In my experience, they were almost never the ones I needed.)     Glances, which you accessed by sweeping up from the bottom of the Apple Watch screen and gave you quick links to things like your heart rate, battery life, activities and your calendar are done, too. That’s what the Dock is for: live cards of the apps you choose and the one you used most recently, instead of a set of features mostly selected by Apple. Even the Apple Watch iPhone app is getting an update. No other Apple utility looks as much like an afterthought as the current watch app. With the brand new Face Gallery, the watchOS 3 app finally reveals all the hard work third-party apps vendors have been doing to create watch complications and even their own Apple Watch faces. However, Apple’s change of heart is nowhere more evident in its fresh approach to activity and health.   Shaping up and calming down Ever since companies started producing smartwatches, there’s been an ongoing debate about whether or not anyone even wears watches. A lot of people had given them up for the watch in their pocket: their smartphone. Wearables were all about fitness. The Apple Watch, naturally, came with fitness- and health-tracking built in, but it was Apple’sbrand of fitness and the company often seemed more interested in people seeing Apple Watch as a watch and fashion accessory first and a fitness gadget second. That changes with watchOS 3. Activities may no longer have a "glance," but now they're a full-blown watch face. So the three rings of Movement (for calories) Exercise and Standing can now be ever-present if you wish. Activities also still live within an app (which means it’s in the app Dock) and as a watch complication. No matter where you find it, though, Apple has done away with the virtual navigation grid in favor of strips. That’s right, if you want to see your activities, you just scroll the heck down.  Follow Lance Ulanoff    ✔@LanceUlanoff Some of what's coming this fall in watchOS 3.0. #WWDC2016 12:27 AM - 14 Jun 2016      2626 Retweets      2121 likes   It’s a much less complicated approach that will surely appeal to workout fanatics who perhaps found Apple’s wearable health and fitness ideas confusing and somewhat inflexible. Speaking of flexibility, Apple has finally opened up the activity circles to third-party health and fitness apps like Strava. Now workouts done in your favorite workout app that start on the iPhone will get counted and continue on the watch. They’ll even let you define “Other” workouts. WatchOS also adds a new workout complication and, when you tap that, up to five live workout metrics. You’ll even be able to pause a workout by simultaneously pressing the side and crown buttons, which means you don’t even have to look at the watch to control the tracking.     Apple seems particularly proud of its new well-being-focused Breathe watch app, a watchOS 3 addition that’s probably not welcome news to apps like Headspace, which uses a mellifluous voice to help you practice mindfulness. Still, I have to applaud the simplicity of Apple’s approach. It’s really just about deep breathing, some flower graphics, and gentle wrist taps to help guide you along. Breathe seems emblematic of Apple’s larger watchOS 3 effort to help you achieve your goals without pressing its own methods and metrics upon you.   Do over Apple has sold millions of Apple Watches, but still felt the need for a course correction. Not enough people want beautiful timepieces, but many more want to work out and get credit for it. Not everyone is charmed by Apple’s cute ideas for reaching friends or seeing their schedule for a day or a week ago (Time Travel anyone?), but notifications, messaging and fast access to utility is something everyone can get behind. WatchOS still bears little resemblance to any of the other wearable interfaces out there, but, like Samsung and Google before it, Apple has taken a major second swing at the wearable market. The Tizen-based Samsung Gear S2 showed that Samsung was listening to customer feedback and took note of the general disinterest in its previous (and relatively bulky) Gear watches. Android Wear 2.0 was also a major update that helped turn Google's wearable platform into something usable. Apple calls its new wearable platform watchOS 3, but it's really the second iteration of the platform. And like everyone else, Apple is finally figuring this space out.

    I chose to post these images for several reasons. First, today is International Women's Day (and what woman doesn't love good food?). On this day, I find an urge to say thank you to all the ambitious, beautiful, giving and powerful women in my life. Alyse Gilbert is one of them. Her sweet nature is the essence of strong embodied femininity. These images of Alyse were taken during a recent Sunday brunch atTavern in LA. At this delicious meal, we talked about our journey as young women in the world. We agreed that it is so important to stay on our individual paths, strive for our dreams, and be there for one another!   Alyse and I met in photography school and instantly connected. She recently started working for Tastemade (an inspiring start up for foodies across the globe). She has watched the company grow from the ground up as she has contributed her special talents as a food photographer to the mix. To all you beautiful ladies following my blog, I want you to join us in our brunch conversation. I send you love and inspiration. Treat yourself to what makes you happy today - and every day.

Cơm cháy - kho quẹt




Bạn cần chuẩn bị những nguyên liệu sau để làm món cơm cháy - kho quẹt:
- 100g thịt mỡ. Có thể dùng mỡ hoàn toàn, hoặc dùng thịt ba rọi chỗ nhiều mỡ
- 50g tôm khô
- 2 thìa đường
- 3 thìa mắm
- Vài củ hành tím, vài trái ớt
- Rau củ để luộc thì tùy theo mùa và vùng miền.
1. Làm kho quẹt:

Thịt mỡ rửa sạch thái hạt lựu nhỏ,

Tôm khô ngâm mềm,

Cho thịt mỡ vào chảo

Thắng cho ra mỡ

Vớt phần tóp mỡ để riêng. Phần mỡ nước nếu nhiều quá thì chắt bớt ra, để lại khoảng 2-3 thìa phở dùng làm kho quẹt.

Hành củ xắt lát mỏng.

Ớt xanh ớt đỏ thái nhỏ.

Cho hành vào chảo mỡ, phi thơm.

Tiếp theo cho tôm vào, đảo săn.

Cho nước mắm và đường vao, có thể thêm một chút nước lọc để giảm bớt độ mặn (nhưng kho quẹt đúng điệu thì phải mặn hơn bình thường một chút).
Đun kho quẹt liu riu một lúc thì cho ớt và tóp mỡ vào, đun thêm một chút nữa là được. Sở dĩ mình cho tóp mỡ vào sau cùng, vì muốn ăn tóp mỡ giòn. Bạn có thể cho tóp mỡ vào cùng tôm ngay từ đầu cũng được nhé. Sau khi đun thì kho quẹt cạn bớt nước và keo lại, lúc này tắt bếp, rắc thêm chút tiêu bột là xong.
2. Làm cơm cháy:

Cơm tẻ trộn với 1 xíu dầu ăn và gia vị hoặc nước mắm,

Cho cơm vào chảo, thêm chút xíu nước, đậy vung đun mềm rồi dàn mỏng. Sau khi dàn mỏng, thỉnh thoảng rưới vào 1 thìa nước, (nghe xèo xèo rất vui tai) rồi lại ấn ấn cho hạt cơm liên kết với nhau.

Cho nước khoảng 3-4 lần như thế thì mặt cơm sẽ vàng, lật sang mặt kia, làm tương tự.

Nếu cơm được nấu bằng gạo dẻo thì không cần trộn gia vị, cũng không cần thêm nước khi làm cơm cháy vì hạt cơm mềm, dễ dàng dính với nhau.
3. Luộc rau:

Đun nước trong một nồi tương đối rộng để rau được chìm hoàn toàn trong nước thoải mái và không chật chội. Khi nước sôi, thả vào một nhúm muối tinh. Sau đó, luộc từng loại rau, chín thì vớt ra, rồi cho loại khác vào. Chú ý, giữ lửa sao cho nước lúc nào cũng sôi mạnh, trùm kín hết rau, và rau không quá chật

Với các loại rau có màu xanh như là rau cải, đậu cove, để giữ được màu xanh không bị xỉn thì ngay khi vớt rau ra thì thả ngay vào tô nước lạnh.
Kho quẹt là món ăn có xuất xứ từ miền Nam, vốn là món ăn của những người dân nghèo để chấm cùng rau củ cho đậm đà. Ngày nay nó được biết đến và yêu thích trong rất nhiều nhà hàng và đã xuất hiện rất nhiều biến tấu cho món kho quẹt giản dị, trong đó cách làm kho quẹt được giới thiệu trong bài viết này là một kiểu khá phổ biến. 


Ngoài ra thay vì chỉ ăn kèm rau củ luộc giản dị thì bạn có thể làm thêm cơm cháy chấm cùng cũng rất hợp vị, nhất là trong những ngày trời lạnh được chấm miếng cơm cháy giòn rụm vào nồi kho quẹt đậm đà cay thơm thì còn gì bằng!
