How Steak Works

For the backyard chef and the experienced foodie alike, nothing means luxury like a fine steak, with melt-in-your-mouth tenderness and rich flavor.
Although “steak” can designate the meat of several different animals, in the U.S. it almost invariably means beefsteak. Steak comes in a variety of cuts and grades, and it also offers a surprising range of flavors and textures. Some of these qualities depend on preparation; others depend on how the cow was raised and when it was slaughtered.
Typically to make a steak

, the meat is butchered in cross-section — the cut is perpendicular to the muscle fibers, or grain [source: Oklahoma State University]. The meat is marbled — that is, it contains a certain amount of fat. In many cases, marbling leads to tenderness and flavor [source: Chu]. There is some debate about the quality of marbling, as well as the relationship between marbling and the diet of the cow [source: Time].
For anyone who used to struggle with the spelling difference between “stake” and “steak,” it should come as a comfort to learn that the words are actually related. “Steak” comes from a root meaning “to roast on a stake” [source: Merriam-Webster]. That’s not the only way to cook a steak any more, but there’s still something a bit primal about a perfect cut of beef. We do tend to associate steak with cowboys and manly men, and indeed, the United States leads the world in beef consumption — just under 70 pounds (31.75 kg) per person, per year [source: Cattle Network]. By contrast, the figure is about 19 pounds (8.7 kg) in Japan — less than one-third as much [source: AsiaKan]!
In this article, we’ll look at the different varieties and cuts of steak on the market today. You’ll also learn some facts and opinions on the all-important topic of cooking steak. But first, let’s head over to the farm, for a look at how cattle-raising methods affect flavor

What does the computer in a car do?

All cars manufactured today contain at least one computer. It is in charge of monitoring engine emissions and adjusting the engine to keep emissions as low as possible. The computer receives information from a many different sensors, including:
Using the information from these sensors, the computer can control things like the fuel injectors, spark plugs and the idle speed to get the best performance possible from the engine while keeping emissions low. The computer can also sense when something has gone wrong and can inform the driver with the “Check Engine” light. A mechanic can read a diagnostic code from the computer and fix the problem.
Depending on how expensive the car is, there can be all sorts of other computers. For example:
In other words, a modern luxury car is a rolling computer network. It is amazing how many embedded controllers a car can have.
So what was the deal about whether our cars would start on January 1, 2000? Nothing. The computers in our cars have no idea what today’s date is because it is irrelevant to their calculations. If you take the battery out of your car to replace it

, all of the computers lose power. Your radio, for example, may forget its preset stations. However, you don’t have to reset the date on any of these embedded computers because none of them care.

, called the DBC, and it’s only a design concept at this point — the work of industrial designer Samir Sadikhov. Samir has a full gallery of DBC images you can drool over, but there are several other interesting projects on his site, too

. Things like other supercars, race cars, luxury cars, a couple of not-your-ordinary SUVs and even a private jet, so you might want to click around in his portfolio (and his design blog) for a few minutes while you’re there.
I think the DBC is an exceptionally good-looking concept. This would be something completely different for Aston Martin, too. They haven’t really thrown around the idea of a mid-engined car since the Bulldog Concept in 1980. I guess we can only hope that someone from the Aston Martin design studio is paying attention to the DBC Concept sketches.

The Best Watches to Wear in the Gym

When choosing a workout watch, you want it to incorporate all the attributes a gym watch needs without sacrificing style. Unlike the watch you wear to work or your dress watch, a gym watch needs to be able to take a beating. In addition, you want your watch to add to your workout, not just take up space on your wrist. Choosing a well-made watch is essential for everyone in the gym, from the most experienced fitness buff to the after-work rookie.
Although a lot of people go to the gym because they want to look better, it’s easy to forget how you look while you’re there. Wearing your dress watch to the gym is not only terrible for your timepiece but sends the message that you don’t belong. A watch with a leather strap or heavy bracelet is best left at home. When it comes to gym watches, look for matte color rather than shine, and style emphasis on the band and case rather than the face. For example, choose a watch with a sleek case and color or detailing on the band, rather than having unnecessary elements on the face that detract from your ability to read the time and use the watch’s features.
When you buy a workout watch, look for something durable, made of a tough plastic, rubber, or a lighter titanium or ceramic. Your gym watch should be water resistant and able to take scratches and sweat without discoloration. Shy away from a glass crystal or anything else that could shatter

, opting for a well-built shock resistant model if possible. Look for a watch that could realistically last a lifetime, made of a tough material with a shape that protects the face. If your watch can’t be thrown in a gym bag without potential damage, it isn’t durable enough to last through frequent workouts

.
Gym watches boast a variety of unique features not available on casual or dress watches. Essential features include a stopwatch and heart rate monitor, while other options depend on how you work out. For runners, a lap counter, chronograph, distance calculator and GPS can be beneficial. If you primarily lift, look for a watch that tracks recovery time and workout intensity. Other features can include touchscreen interfaces and comfort options such as interchangeable bands.
Some watches can integrate with a smartphone, mp3 player or computer to create a complete workout analysis and enhancement plan. While some watches track workout times, workout intensity and other data, others can combine with calorie-counting apps to give you a better understanding of what your workout is doing. Other watches can choose music to match the pace of your workout, while some send data to your computer, allowing you to see how your fitness improves over time. With thousands of watches to choose from, finding the best watch to wear in the gym has never been easier. Remember to pick a watch that lasts and suits your workout needs, incorporating up-to-date features that will help you look great and motivate you to look and feel even better.
