Nerf Guns

As a kid, I strapped a Nerf gun to my bicycle so I could dive bomb the neighborhood kids, while traveling—I imagined—at five times the speed of sound. As an adult, I’ve carried a foam-firing blaster to no fewer than three jobs. But a funny thing happened last year: I realized my old guns weren’t any good anymore.

They hadn’t worn out. (Well, most of them anyways; my Sharpshooter II was toast.) It was just that toy blasters had evolved when I wasn’t looking. Now, they shoot farther, faster, and lay down more fire than ever before. You can buy a freaking fully-automatic Nerf machine gun now. I clearly needed to up my game. But how to arm myself?


War has changed. I’ve found that whether you’re wresting control of the office from nefarious colleagues or dominating friends at the park, a single-shot sidearm won’t cut it anymore. The wonderful part about foam warfare is that you can dodge bullets like Neo in The Matrix. The hard part: so can anyone else. Since statistically, you’re going to miss most of the time, you need a blaster with lots of shots, or one that can pick off foes before they get close. So I went looking for the fastest, most accurate Nerf guns that don’t require constant reloading.

3 Ways to Get a Bigger Butt Naturally

Heel Raises

Heel raises are excellent for developing a rounder butt. You can use ankle weights or resistance bands to maintain tension for better muscle growth in the glutes and hamstrings.

1. Begin on your hands and knees in a tabletop position. Drive the heel of one foot straight up towards the ceiling, maintaining a 90-degree angle at the knee. At the top of the movement, take a second to flex the glute muscles as you exhale.

2. Inhale as you slowly bring the knee back down, crossing it over the opposite knee.

Tip: For a more intense workout, do 1 to 2 minutes on one leg, then continue with another 1 to 2 minutes on the same leg, but this time extending your leg straight out. Once this 2 to 4 minute set is complete, switch legs.

Jump Squats

Jump squats are great for gaining strength and burning fat.

1. To start, slowly lower yourself into a squat making sure your knees don’t pass your toes. This is called the safe-squat position.

2. Next, spring up into a straight jump and land in the same safe-squat position. Repeat this movement continuously for 30 seconds.


Single Leg Bridges

Leg bridges are great for your booty and build sexy VS model legs.

1. Lie on your back with one foot flat on the ground and one leg straight up in the air.

2. Exhale as you place your weight into the heel of the foot on the ground and drive your glutes up aiming to make your body straight from shoulder to knee. At the top of the movement, flex your glutes and inhale as you slowly return to start position. Repeat this for 20 repetitions per leg, pulsing at the top for 10 seconds at the end of each set.

What Causes Cellulite & How To Treat It

When it comes to health and beauty, many women cite cellulite as a primary concern. Those unsightly lumps, dimples and ripples can make bathing suit season a complete nightmare as well as cause anxiety in everyday situations. All, however, is not lost. Keep reading for a comprehensive guide on this embarrassing problem, which includes information on what causes cellulite, how to get rid of it and how to prevent it.

What is Cellulite?

Simply put, cellulite is made up of deposits of fat just beneath the surface of the skin. These fatty deposits push against the skin’s connective tissues, resulting in a lumpy, puckered appearance. It’s a common misconception that only overweight or obese individuals experience cellulite; this, however is completely untrue! Although excess body weight and BMI can lead to or worsen the problem, cellulite can occur in thin women as well.


What Causes Cellulite?

A variety of factors can contribute to the development of cellulite. In order to treat the problem, though, it’s important to determine what causes cellulite on an individual level. And while the causes of this condition may vary, they often include the following:

  • Genetics. Research suggests that having a close blood relative with cellulite significantly increases an individual’s likelihood of developing the problem themselves.
  • Being overweight. As mentioned above, thin people can experience cellulite; however, being overweight can increase the odds of its development.
  • Physical inactivity. Even in thin women, sedentary lifestyles and physical inactivity can lead to the onset of cellulite.
  • Poor diet. Certain foods can lead to or worsen the problem of cellulite. For example, diets low in nutrition and high in fat, calories and starches are known to promote the development of cellulite.
  • Dehydration. Many women who experience cellulite do not get sufficient hydration. Poor hydration can prevent the body from effectively ridding itself of excess fat and other waste; in turn, this results in the body’s storage of fatty deposits beneath the skin.
  • Hormonal factors. There is a reason women experience cellulite more frequently than men. The likely answer lies in female hormones, which are known to play a large role in the body’s production of fat and cellulite.
  • Age. While cellulite can affect younger women, the age-related breakdown of collagen is often associated with this condition.
  • Poor circulation. Like dehydration, insufficient blood flow can prevent the body from getting rid of excess fat.
  • Other lifestyle factors. In some women, lifestyle factors like smoking, excessive drinking or sitting for long periods can lead to the onset of cellulite.

Treating the Problem

Now that we know what causes cellulite, we better able to treat and prevent this unsightly condition. In treating this problem, there are a number of methods that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and enhance the health of the skin. What’s more, many treatment methods can be performed at home and at little or no cost. A few natural, at-home remedies used in the treatment of cellulite include the following:

  • Exercise. The best way to address the problem of cellulite is through a mixture of cardiovascular and strength-training workouts. Cardio will burn fat and increase blood flow while strength exercises will tone and tighten muscles so that cellulite is less visible.
  • Detoxifying diets. To blast unattractive, embarrassing cellulite, forgo fatty, high-calorie and processed foods in favor of meals high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Detoxifying diets should also be high in fiber, which helps the body get rid of waste more efficiently. Stock up on fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats. As an added bonus, omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish, nuts and seeds, have been proven helpful in battling cellulite. And don’t forget to hydrate! Drink no less than eight glasses of water each and every day.
  • Detoxifying flushes. Performing periodic flushes can help rid the body of excess fat, waste and other toxins. And while flushes and cleanses can be harmful in excess, they are healthy in moderation.
  • Massage. There is some evidence that massage helps reduce cellulite by breaking up and dissolving fatty deposits beneath the surface of the skin.
  • Coffee scrubs. Coffee scrubs exfoliate, tighten and rejuvenate the skin, thus reducing the appearance of unsightly cellulite. To make your own, combine 1/4 cup of coffee grounds with 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil.
  • Dry-brushing. Like massage, dry-brushing can help break up and dissolve cellulite. Plus, this method can exfoliate the skin and increase blood flow to the epidermis. Here’s how you do it: using a brush with soft, natural bristles, brush dry skin in long, smooth, upward motions.

New Sniper Scope Works Like a Human Eye

Conventional sniper scopes may allow for superlatively long shots but they are far from perfect, requiring a time-consuming refocusing of the sights should the target (or shooter) have to move position. But with the new RAZAR scope from Sandia National Labs, that refocus is handled almost instantly with the push of a button.

Conventional long-range rifle scopes adjust the focal point by sliding one or more lenses back and forth within the scope assembly—like a telescope. The RAZAR (Rapid Adaptive Zoom for Assault Rifles), on the other hand, works more like the human eye. Its optics can deform—that is, change the degree of curvature—growing flatter or rounder depending on the need, much as ocular muscles press and pull on the eye’s lens to focus our vision to various distances.

“The impetus behind the idea of push-button zoom is you can acquire what you’re interested in at low magnification and, without getting lost, zoom in for more clarity,” Sandia National Laboratories optical engineer Brett Bagwell said in a press statement.

According to Sandia Labs:

The U.S. Military requested a compact zoom riflescope, capable of rapidly toggling between magnification at the push of a button without changing the grip on the weapon or losing sight picture. The Rapid Adaptive Zoom for Assault Rifles (RAZAR) filled this request. RAZAR can zoom in milliseconds and perform 10,000 actuations on two AA batteries. The weight, power, and speed requirements for mechanical zoom make them prohibitive. RAZAR allows target engagement at diverse ranges and provides several distinct advantages including speed and high resolution at varying distances.

This offers a faster and easier function compared to traditional mechanical scopes and higher clarity than digital zooms. The only real drawback is that the scope will lock into a single focal point if the batteries die, though that can be quickly rectified by swapping in a fresh pair.

Sandia hopes that this technology will find its way not just to the battlefield but to a variety of civilian uses as well from consumer-grade adaptive optic binoculars to long-range sports photography.
