According to the creators of ‘Go Cubes’, they are the future of coffee as they “blend the yumminess of coffee with the snack-ability of gummy bears”.

Making it more convenient than ever to enjoy a coffee on-the-go, these delicious chewable sweets apparently condense an entire cup of cold brew coffee into easy-to-consume gummy bites.

Other than being a more convenient grab-and-go alternative to liquid coffee, Go Cubes are also made specifically for cognitive performance, helping you to “stay sharp all day”.

The Indigogo campaign for Go Cubes, which closed recently, was successfully funded—if you have missed that, head over here to make a pre-order for these innovative coffee gummies.

A Visual Guide To Shooting Beautiful Architecture Using Just Your iPhone

Taking great photos is no longer a privilege exclusive to DSLR owners, with the quality of smartphone cameras and photo-editing applications developing to become more intuitive.

To help you take full advantage of these accessible features, website High Snobiety offers a visual guide to developing a good eye for stunning architecture and capturing memorable snapshots with just your iPhone.

Nail your alignment.

With architectural photography, it is crucial to focus on perspectives and vanishing points in getting your alignment right. A useful tip would be to activate the grid function on your phone and look for the horizon. Finding points of reference to guide your alignment, such as vertical building facades and and horizontal ground features will help.

Fix your perspectives.

To retain the natural and realistic quality of your image, fix your perspectives with the SKRWT app, before using color-correcting apps or editing softwares, which usually lowers the photo quality through pixel stretching and shrinking.

Chase the perfect lighting.

Introducing the WELLY, a reusable water bottle that is stylish and has a social impact.

Motivated by the passing of his mother, founder and CEO of WELLY, Ben Kander, designed the 24-ounce bottle using natural renewable resources, including bamboo side panels that allow you to squeeze the bottle and a custom-made filter made of coconut shells. The highly absorbent filter takes away chlorine, odor and other impurities to provide 40 gallons of clean water. The bottle has a canteen-like shape with a unique handle that makes it easy to carry around.

Apart from its unique style and design, WELLY was also founded on a business model that prioritizes social impact. To help solve the problem of over 780 million people living without access to clean water, WELLY has partnered with charity:water, a non-profit organization that provides clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. A dollar of each WELLY bottle sold goes to the charity to help fund their sustainable water projects.

You can find out more about WELLY by watching the Kickstarter campaign video below, or head over here to pre-order a bottle for yourself.

Watch: Men Hit On ‘Drunk’ Woman, Reveal Real Threats To Safety Women Face

[Click here to view the video in this article]

Spanish rehab clinic The Centro Europeo Neurosalus conducted a social experiment on the streets of Madrid in which an actress feigned being drunk, lost, separated from her friends and feeling unwell.

The men who approached her did not appear interested in helping her. Some invited her to join them for more drinks, while others tried to coax her back to their hotel room or an isolated area. Another tried to kiss her before a member of the film crew intervened.

Although such advances aren’t anything new, they remain disturbing to watch. Not all men are predatory but this PSA serves as a strong reminder about the threats to safety that women face.

It’s important that women take the necessary precautions to avoid such unpleasant incidents from occurring. This includes not drinking, especially if you travel solo because the dangers, as you can see in the clip below, are indeed very real.

Frugal Habits That You Learn From The Wealthiest People In The World

This may be surprising, but research and reported anecdotes reveal that wealthy people, including the wealthiest, are actually frugal. That being said, it does not mean that they are cheap. Being frugal means being smarter and wiser at prioritizing your funds, finding the best value and making solid investments. These are the traits and attitudes that have helped the richest people in the world become who they are today.

Entrepreneur shares some of the frugal habits of the wealthy that you can adapt to help build up your own bank account.

They use coupons.

Reports show that households with average incomes of $100,000 or more use more coupons than those that bring in under $35,000. You might be surprised to know that Carrie Underwood, Lady Gaga, Kristen Bell and other celebrities are among the wealthy individuals who are fans of coupons. On the whole, it was found that “71 percent of the affluent use paper coupons every month, with 54 percent using online coupons every month”.

They live below their means.

The super rich are also known for living well below their means, from cutting their own hair to viewing a vehicle as functional and not a status symbol. Founder of Wal-Mart, Sam Walton, is known for driving a 1979 Ford F150 pickup truck. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg owns a modest Acura TSX entry-level sedan and Warren Buffet recently sold his 2006 Cadillac, which was noted for not being anything special. IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad, Hobby Lobby founder David Green and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer all prefer to fly commercial, and even fly coach.

They value quality over quantity.

Despite all this, wealthy individuals are not against enjoying themselves, but they still put thought into their purchases. For instance, business magnate and financier T. Boone Pickens has reportedly said, “If I want something, I look at it, decide what it is, but it will usually be the best product. I’ve got a pair of loafers that I still wear that I got in 1957.”

Some of the wealthiest people also do not carry wads of cash, and are typically generous to various charities. Head over here to find out more.
