*Hangry*has become quite a popular term in the last couple of years.
hangry describes this feeling of moodiness/anger some of us experience when they're particularly hungry.
We all probably know someone that gets pretty hangry when they haven't eaten in a while!
But why exactly do we get in such a bad mood when we're hungry?
Hangry-Phenomenon, and researchers are still arguing about the true cause.
When we eat something, the food gets broken down into nutrients (amino acids, glucose...) that then circle in your bloodstream and nourish your organs.
**When time goes on after you've eaten a meal, the level of those nutrients in your
We all know that this happens twice a year, but in a time where electronics update the time automatically most people don't think about it too much.
Do you know why we actually turn the clocks twice a year? How did this happen, why isn't the whole world changing the clocks on the same day, and why are some people against it?
The initial idea of changing the time with the seasons isn't new.
Even the romans were already adjusting the length of their hours depending on the time of year.
Then at the start of the 20th century, daylight saving like we know it begun.
The British builder William Willett first proposed the idea because he wanted the population to enjoy the sunlight more, and the extra hour could also be very useful for farmers during harvest s
Robots have always been a fascination for humans. Especially manned robots are a classic in many sci-fi movies.
The idea of sitting inside a massive robot and controlling it like a suit is just too awesome!
A human can sit inside it and control the robot's limbs with a joystick, similar to manned robots we know from movies like
That's because one of the robot's designers is Vitaly Bulgarov, a Science Fiction Expert that has worked on Hollywood Movies like Transformers, Terminator, Robocop or Ghost in the Shell.
With its arms stretched out, the metal giant measures 23 feet of width.

A cup of hot coffee in the morning: some people can't even function without it!
Coffee is the world's most popular drug, and many people depend on it for their daily performance.
Some statistics even suggest that up to 90% of Americans consume coffee on a regular basis!
It gives you an energy boost, and makes you feel more alert to fight that fatigue in the morning or the afternoon-low.
And Caffeine use actually dates way back to early human history.
Naturally, caffeine can be found in coffee beans (obviously), but also the Kola nut, Guarana, certain tea leaves (especially black tea) and Yerba Mate.
(The coffee plant itself actually produces caffeine as a pesticide to keep away harmful bugs!)
Energy from non-renewable sources is limited, scarce, and expensive.
That's why electric cars have been booming the past few years, and will definitely be a HUGE part of our future!
Once a plane is built, gas is the most expensive component of air travel.
Commercial airplanes use up extremely large amounts of gas, which is not only expensive for the airline and ultimately the passengers, but also takes a toll on the environment.
It's supposed to have seats for 150 passengers, and fly distances under 480 km (300 miles).
The ambitious concept was presented at this year's
*Y Combinator's Demo Day*, an event where startups can pitch their ideas to influential investors.
According to Wright Electric, they have plans to establish
No doubt, it's an amazing invention - wherever you are, foreign city or not, you can simple type in where you want to go and you'll always know the way, without getting lost.
Our inner GPS is a very complex system of specialized nerve cells.
It's located in our Hippocampus, the region of the brain that manages future plans, memories and more.
With this system, we're able to plan, memorize and simulate routes, and be aware of our location in a 3D environment.
Nature Communications2 days ago, tested the navigation skills of 24 volunteers.
At first, the volunteers were taken on a 2 hour t
From the moment we wake up to the end of the night when we fall asleep, we are given thousands of choices everyday.
Just a few decades ago, that was different - you went to school, maybe to college, got a secure job, got married, had kids, and that's pretty much it.
You would go to the grocery store, buy some local produce, and live happily.
People are free to travel or work everywhere around the world, they can choose whether to get married or not or have a career and kids afterwards or none of it.
When we go to the grocery store we can choose between 23 types of gluten-free, sugar-free, organic, soy-based or vegan cereal.
And thanks to globalization we can now not only purchase local products, but delicacies from all over the world!
You're stuck in traffic on your commute to work.
What if you could just take you car and fly it across the packed highway?
What if you could travel through the streets as well as through the air , always choosing the quickest way to reach your goal?
This sounds like a dream or a scene from a Sci-Fi movie, but it might actually become a reality!
It's a two-seater pod which can be combined with different forms of transportation - it can be attached to wheels as a car, hung under a quadcopter like a drone or plane, connect with other pods to form a train, or even go through a Hyperloop.
The Blockchain technology will be a vital part in the future of banking, computing and secure networks - that's a given, and all of us here on Steemit are sure of it.
But it's also a fact that currently, Blockchain technology is still not very popular - it sounds complicated, it's not very accessible or easily applicable, so not many companies have started to use it yet.
With this step, IBM will be able to offer businesses a cloud service to build custom blockchains.
IBM's strategy is to offer their customers a wide range of cloud services, and they had already announced to support blockchain technology and increase its popularity, so this project seems to go hand in hand with those plans.
**Good Morning Britain**.
