<p>SEATTLE—At its annual Build developer conference, Microsoft took the wraps off the next major Windows 10 version, the <a href="https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/05/and-the-name-of-the-next-windows-10-update-is-the-fall-creators-update/">Fall Creators Update</a>, and announced some of its new features.</p>
<p>One of these new features, Timeline, is going to be good when you're using Windows 10—but even better when you're not. Timeline tracks what you're doing—which documents you have in which apps, which e-mails you're writing, what Web pages you have open, that kind of thing—and lets you retrieve that information later.</p>

The <a href="http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/how-the-offer-of-free-shipping-affects-on-line-shopping/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Wharton School reported</a> (link ours):</p><blockquote><p><a href="http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.539.281&amp;rep=rep1&amp;type=pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Data from comScore</a> (PDF), a firm that tracks Internet browsing and purchasing behavior for academic research, documented the impact of the changes. When a $49 purchase triggered free shipping, the average purchase quantity of products per order was 3.31. When the threshold fell to $25, the average purchase quantity dropped to 2.53. The comScore data included 45 purchasers who bought from Amazon.com when both thresholds were in place. Those consumers spent $17 less per “free-shipping” order under the lower threshold, and purchased 1.82 fewer items.</p></blockquote><p>Basically, the higher the shipping threshold, the more crap we’re inclined to buy. As Wharton marketing professor <a href="http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/faculty/davidb/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">David Bell</a> put it, we would rather save $6.99 in shipping than get a discount that saves us $10 overall. Shipping + handling feels like a tax, the price we pay just for shopping. We don’t really get anything extra for our money, so if we can skip this cost, we’re happy.</p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-74796042" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-32953046" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><div class="ad-promotions-container js_ad-promotion row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-promotion-mobile" data-mobile="true"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-mobile ad-promotion js_ad-promotion"><div id="ad-container-34606748" class="ad-container js_ad-container js_ad-container-top" data-zone-type="MOBILE_PERMALINK_NATIVE"></div></div></div><div class="taboola-mobile-second hide-contents ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Sponsored</small></p><div class="taboola-mobile-article-carousel" id="taboola-mobile-article-carousel"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div><p>Of course, all of this still means you’re likely to spend more money overall, even with a $25 threshold. It’s why companies like Amazon promote these offers, after all—they make more money this way. The best way to combat this? Focus on your own bottom line rather than the discount. Look at how much you’ll spend, total, with and without the free shipping. Are you spending $35 to get free shipping when you otherwise would’ve spent just $10? We start to see $35 as a better deal because we get more stuff with it. That might not be the best deal for your budget, though. Comparing these two numbers can help you make a more objective decision.</p><p>Sometimes free shipping might be worth it. If you were going to spend $22 on something and shipping costs you $6, it might be worth spending the $3 on something you needed, anyway. You’ll save money <em>and</em> get a new pack of sponges or toilet paper or whatever else you buy on Amazon. Do the math, and you can make sure the offers that target you also work in your favor.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lifehacker/vip/~4/5RpS82krw2Q" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

A low credit score itself probably doesn’t <em>cause</em> a relationship to go south, but according to the study, it’s a good predictor of a bumpy road ahead. This is likely because bad credit and financial stress usually go hand in hand.</p><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-14493972" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="mid"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>Bad credit can make it hard to get a job, rent an apartment, or buy a car.

Then, they used artificial intelligence to spot similar pages on the platform. </p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-27201417" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-58924813" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-52869716" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="top"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>Once identified to be a low-quality web page, the new News Feed algorithm places the page lower in a user’s feed and disqualifies it from being an ad. It’s essentially a ranking system that creates a hierarchy based on a web page’s quality, sparing users from being bombarded with obnoxious or NSFW ads the moment they head over.</p><h3>They’ve done this before.</h3><p>Sound familiar? That’s because Facebook has used this tactic before to tackle clickbait. Last year, the company announced it had <a href="http://lifehacker.com/remains-of-the-day-facebook-plans-on-fighting-clickbai-1784843671" rel="nofollow">analyzed thousands of article headlines</a> to determine whether or not they were clickbait (Think: “How To Lose 95 Pounds In Less Than One Week”). Using this data, they developed a software algorithm that effectively scores web domains and Pages on their clickbait violations and this score determines their status in a News Feed — much like the new algorithm.<br></p><p>“This is one of the first times we’re actually using information from the experience that people will have once they click something to help inform the ranking in News Feed,” product manager Greg Marra told<a href="https://www.recode.net/2017/5/10/15601860/facebook-spam-click-bait-news-feed-algorithm" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> <em>Recode</em></a></p><h3>But how will it affect fake news?</h3><p>One practical result of this change is how it will affect the prevalence of “fake news” on the social networking site. It’s no secret that Facebook has a fake news problem — the issue was <a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37983571" target="_blank" rel="noopener">spotlighted</a> amid the 2016 presidential election. While Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg denied allegations — he claimed <a href="https://www.facebook.com/zuck/posts/10103253901916271" target="_blank" rel="noopener">99 percent</a> of content on the platform is real — our sister site <a href="https://gizmodo.com/facebooks-fight-against-fake-news-was-undercut-by-fear-1788808204#_ga=2.168811809.1256476234.1494531559-672228682.1489692420" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>Gizmodo</em></a> reported the company was aware of the problem and even had access to a tool that could block false content.</p><p>In the aftermath of the criticism and accusations, the company <a href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/facebook-bans-fake-news-sites-from-using-its-advertising-network-1479175778" target="_blank" rel="noopener">banned fake news sites</a> from using the in-house ad network. Facebook also created a <a href="https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2016/12/news-feed-fyi-addressing-hoaxes-and-fake-news/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">new, easier method</a> for taking down false news posts: users can easily report a fake story by clicking on the upper right corner of the post and when enough reports are made, a third-party fact-checker evaluates the link to determine its authenticity. <br></p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-47696435" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-39769485" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><div class="ad-container js_ad-video row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-video-desktop"><div class="ad-instream--waypoint"></div><div class="ad-instream ad-instream--elastic instream-permalink ad-instream__initial"><div class="elastic__wrapper"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-video js_ad-video"><div id="ad-container-19872408" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-media-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-zone-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-instream-position="instream_3"><span id="js_instream_video-placeholder-19872408" class="js_instream-video-placeholder"></span></div></div></div></div></div><div class="ad-promotions-container js_ad-promotion row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-promotion-mobile" data-mobile="true"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-mobile ad-promotion js_ad-promotion"><div id="ad-container-17901538" class="ad-container js_ad-container js_ad-container-top" data-zone-type="MOBILE_PERMALINK_NATIVE"></div></div></div><div class="taboola-mobile-second hide-contents ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Sponsored</small></p><div class="taboola-mobile-article-carousel" id="taboola-mobile-article-carousel"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div><p>Now, with the new AI algorithm update, the Facebook is taking another stab at fake news sites from a different angle. Since many of the sites dishing inaccurate information are also low-quality websites, they are at risk of being lowly ranked. And, as <a href="https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/10/facebook-fights-foot-fungus-ads/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>TechCrunch</em></a> notes, the creators behind false news are largely driven by financial incentives and fill their content in ads. <br></p><p>Just remember: Facebook is making it less likely you’ll encounter fake content; they’re not <em>eliminating</em> it. </p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lifehacker/vip/~4/ayKpMuT0GOI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

<p>The Char-Broil Performance TRU Infrared 450 3-Burner Cart Gas Grill is currently discounted a significant 43% to just $148.24, making it a worthy consideration for the upcoming Father's day. If I'm reading it correctly, $148 puts this 4-burner 450 model at $35 cheaper than the lesser 2-burner 300 model. Double-check my math, but I'm feeling good about this one. It would appear that you're getting a lot for your money at this price. The grill features an electronic ignition, infrared technology for faster and more even heating, a 10,000 BTU side-burner, durable porcelain-coated grates, and a generous 450 square-inch cooking surface. If you want or need a new grill at a very respectable price, <a class="productLink" href="https://www.amazon.com/Char-Broil-Performance-Infrared-3-Burner-Grill/dp/B016ZIB8I8?psc=1&amp;SubscriptionId=AKIAIRZJHSP2SKQIWVZA&amp;tag=javaworld077-20&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;camp=2025&amp;creative=165953&amp;creativeASIN=B016ZIB8I8" rel="nofollow" data-productid="1438292" data-po="amazon" data-product-id="1438292" data-bkc="ConsumerElectronics" data-bkmfr="CharBroil" data-bkvndr="Amazon">see this deal now on Amazon</a>. </p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3194934/software-health/40-off-char-broil-performance-tru-infrared-450-3-burner-cart-gas-grill-deal-alert.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here</a></p></section></article>

I can never remember what I have and what I’ve run out of, and finding things in there is a lost cause. I finally decided to finally get it under control hoping I wouldn’t find an embarrassing number of the same item* stuffed in the shelves. Spoiler: I did. </p><h3><strong>Set Yourself Up</strong></h3><p>First things first, get the supplies you need to organize your pantry properly: a trashcan, stool or chair (to sit on, and to reach everything if you’re short like me), and containers. I used two types of containers, <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70227986/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">airtight ones</a> to hold dry goods and <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40257499/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">plastic boxes with lids </a>to gather like items together. I’m not that fancy, so I just used painter’s tape and a sharpie to label the containers, but if making things look pretty brings you joy, you can go for nicer labels. Throw on The Great British Baking Show (my guilty pleasure) or a favorite playlist to make it more fun.</p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-56966123" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-71768270" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><p>Be prepared to throw some food out. Keep an eye out for food that’s gone bad or stale (<a href="http://lifehacker.com/why-expiration-dates-on-your-food-mean-nothing-1755569296" rel="nofollow">expiration dates won’t necessarily help you</a> out with this). I have no problem throwing something out if I know I won’t eat it (stale chips, bleh), but my boyfriend <em>hates</em> food waste, so I tried to do this part while he was busy playing video games in an effort to actually get rid of stuff. If you’re the anti-food waste one in the house, put all the food you plan to toss in a box and put a date on it, maybe two weeks later. Anything in the box you haven’t eaten by that date goes in the trash.</p><h3><strong>Figure Out How to Sort Things</strong></h3><p>Taking a step back and thinking about the best spots to put everything actually made organizing my pantry easier, so don’t rush ahead and just start throwing things on shelves. We’ve already established that I’m short, so I put that things I eat the most, like tea, baking supplies, cereal, and pasta (mmm, carbs) on the middle shelves. I stashed heavier items, like canned goods and glass jars of dried beans, on the lowest shelves—they fall, they don’t have a long way to go. The snacks my boyfriend and I eat most, those crunchy curls from Trader Joe’s are addictive, went in a plastic box at the front of a lower shelf (sorry dried fruit, no one likes you) for easy snacking access.</p><div class="ad-container js_ad-video row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-video-desktop"><div class="ad-instream--waypoint"></div><div class="ad-instream ad-instream--elastic instream-permalink ad-instream__initial"><div class="elastic__wrapper"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-video js_ad-video"><div id="ad-container-99696706" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-media-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-zone-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-instream-position="instream_3"><span id="js_instream_video-placeholder-99696706" class="js_instream-video-placeholder"></span></div></div></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-61627928" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="top"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>I also put together (by which I mean I cut up a cardboard box), DIY shelf dividers to separate all the sauces and oils. I sorted these by flavor, because that’s what I care about. Oils, including toasted sesame and walnut, on the right, savory (soy sauce, ponzu, and peanut butter) and acidic (apple cider, red wine, and balsamic vinegar) in the middle, and sweet and spicy on the left. Sauces are important to making things taste divine, so being able to quickly grab the one I want will be amazing!</p><h3><strong>Dive In</strong></h3><p>Now, it’s just down to putting things in their place. I made an overflow spot on the floor of my pantry (which I think is actually supposed to be a linen closet…) for anything that took up too much room, like jars of pasta, beans, and rice. The last thing you should do is walk anyone else in the house through your new pantry set-up so they put things in the right place, too.</p><p>*And in case you’re still wondering, here are the duplicate items I found: four jars of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furikake" target="_blank" rel="noopener">furikake</a>, two bags of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kombu" target="_blank" rel="noopener">kombu</a>, two half-full bags of rice, two jars of garlic chili oil, two bags of sundried tomatoes, and two packages of black garlic. Yeah...way too many duplicate items.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lifehacker/vip/~4/k8JOGZtGkz8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Then, they used artificial intelligence to spot similar pages on the platform. </p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-24360317" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-59527739" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-15202376" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="top"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>Once identified to be a low-quality web page, the new News Feed algorithm places the page lower in a user’s feed and disqualifies it from being an ad. It’s essentially a ranking system that creates a hierarchy based on a web page’s quality, sparing users from being bombarded with obnoxious or NSFW ads the moment they head over.</p><h3>They’ve done this before.</h3><p>Sound familiar? That’s because Facebook has used this tactic before to tackle clickbait. Last year, the company announced it had <a href="http://lifehacker.com/remains-of-the-day-facebook-plans-on-fighting-clickbai-1784843671" rel="nofollow">analyzed thousands of article headlines</a> to determine whether or not they were clickbait (Think: “How To Lose 95 Pounds In Less Than One Week”). Using this data, they developed a software algorithm that effectively scores web domains and Pages on their clickbait violations and this score determines their status in a News Feed — much like the new algorithm.<br></p><p>“This is one of the first times we’re actually using information from the experience that people will have once they click something to help inform the ranking in News Feed,” product manager Greg Marra told<a href="https://www.recode.net/2017/5/10/15601860/facebook-spam-click-bait-news-feed-algorithm" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> <em>Recode</em></a></p><h3>But how will it affect fake news?</h3><p>One practical result of this change is how it will affect the prevalence of “fake news” on the social networking site. It’s no secret that Facebook has a fake news problem — the issue was <a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37983571" target="_blank" rel="noopener">spotlighted</a> amid the 2016 presidential election. While Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg denied allegations — he claimed <a href="https://www.facebook.com/zuck/posts/10103253901916271" target="_blank" rel="noopener">99 percent</a> of content on the platform is real — our sister site <a href="https://gizmodo.com/facebooks-fight-against-fake-news-was-undercut-by-fear-1788808204#_ga=2.168811809.1256476234.1494531559-672228682.1489692420" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>Gizmodo</em></a> reported the company was aware of the problem and even had access to a tool that could block false content.</p><p>In the aftermath of the criticism and accusations, the company <a href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/facebook-bans-fake-news-sites-from-using-its-advertising-network-1479175778" target="_blank" rel="noopener">banned fake news sites</a> from using the in-house ad network. Facebook also created a <a href="https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2016/12/news-feed-fyi-addressing-hoaxes-and-fake-news/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">new, easier method</a> for taking down false news posts: users can easily report a fake story by clicking on the upper right corner of the post and when enough reports are made, a third-party fact-checker evaluates the link to determine its authenticity. <br></p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-73506502" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-38659563" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><div class="ad-container js_ad-video row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-video-desktop"><div class="ad-instream--waypoint"></div><div class="ad-instream ad-instream--elastic instream-permalink ad-instream__initial"><div class="elastic__wrapper"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-video js_ad-video"><div id="ad-container-99025036" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-media-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-zone-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-instream-position="instream_3"><span id="js_instream_video-placeholder-99025036" class="js_instream-video-placeholder"></span></div></div></div></div></div><div class="ad-promotions-container js_ad-promotion row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-promotion-mobile" data-mobile="true"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-mobile ad-promotion js_ad-promotion"><div id="ad-container-59584921" class="ad-container js_ad-container js_ad-container-top" data-zone-type="MOBILE_PERMALINK_NATIVE"></div></div></div><div class="taboola-mobile-second hide-contents ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Sponsored</small></p><div class="taboola-mobile-article-carousel" id="taboola-mobile-article-carousel"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div><p>Now, with the new AI algorithm update, the Facebook is taking another stab at fake news sites from a different angle.

<p>A highly virulent new strain of self-replicating ransomware is shutting down computers all over the world, in part by appropriating a National Security Agency exploit that was publicly released last month by the mysterious group calling itself Shadow Brokers.</p>
<p>The malware, known as Wanna, Wannacry, or Wcry, has <a href="https://blog.avast.com/ransomware-that-infected-telefonica-and-nhs-hospitals-is-spreading-aggressively-with-over-50000-attacks-so-far-today">infected at least 57,000 computers</a>, according to antivirus provider Avast. AV provider Kaspersky Lab said <a href="https://securelist.com/blog/incidents/78351/wannacry-ransomware-used-in-widespread-attacks-all-over-the-world/">organizations in at least 74 countries have been affected</a>, with Russia being disproportionately affected, followed by Ukraine, India, and Taiwan. Infections are also <a href="https://intel.malwaretech.com/botnet/wcrypt">spreading through the United States</a>. The malware is notable for its multi-lingual ransom demands, which <a href="https://twitter.com/msuiche/status/863085318374928384/photo/1">support more than two-dozen languages</a>.</p>

Reader greenamerican advises:</p><p>The fact is, you’re not going to miss anything important by going offline for a day or two. If you have push notifications for social media, make sure to turn them off so you’re not tempted to log on.</p><h3><strong>Remember Your Loved One</strong></h3><p>If your mother, child, or partner has died, Mother’s Day can be excruciating.</p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-92478754" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard js_ad-middleboard"><div id="ad-container-24351914" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-17732073" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="top"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>If you’ve lost your mom, you might find comfort in taking the time on Mother’s Day to remember her and everything she meant to you. PhlegmFatale offers:</p><p>You don’t have to engrave a bench to pay tribute to your mom’s memory. Visiting where she’s buried, listening to her favorite music, swapping stories with family, or simply taking a moment to pause and think about her are all ways that might help you get through the day.</p><p>If you’ve lost a child, reader AVDawn has a recommendation:</p><p>If you’ve lost a partner who was a mother, you might consider spending Sunday celebrating them with your children. Depending on the kids’ age, you can enlist your kids’ help in figuring out how to spend the day.</p><h3><strong>Celebrate Another Mother Figure in Your Life</strong></h3><p>Mothers aren’t always our biological moms: many of us have someone else in our lives like an aunt who always answers the phone, mentors us in our career choices, or a neighbor who keeps an eye out for us. Focus on the mother figures in your life and acknowledging all they do for you. NopeNopejustNope says:</p><p>If you know you’ll be spending the holiday with your partner’s mom, but you don’t view her as a mother figure, HesterMofet has a trick to help you reframe the day and get through it:<br></p><p>If you don’t have a mother figure to celebrate, you might expand your definition of what a mother is to women in general. You can volunteer at a women’s shelter or other organization or send texts to important women in your life.</p><h3><strong>Practice Self-Care</strong></h3><p><a href="http://lifehacker.com/why-self-care-is-so-important-1770880812" rel="nofollow">Self care is important</a> any time, but if this day is rough for you, it’s essential. Plan a day full of your favorite activities, like a marathon of your favorite movies with your favorite snacks. Or treat yourself to something new, like taking an art class or a new hiking trail. The goal is to distract yourself with things you enjoy.

<p><img src="https://www.webdesignerdepot.com/cdn-origin/uploads/2017/04/featured.jpg" align="left" alt="" width="100%" style="max-width:100%; width:auto;" /> Information density is the amount of information in the form of content that a site visitor is greeted with as soon as he lands on a website or webpage.</p>
<p>The greater the information density, the greater the amount of content a visitor will see on the site or page. Because of this tie-in to content, information density has an immediate impact on a user’s cognitive load, which in turn, has a huge impact on the site’s navigability, usability and user experience.</p>
<p>When designing, it’s helpful to think of how much content your user can reasonably handle without being bogged down by it. The more content they encounter, the longer it will take them to complete certain tasks and page goals…since the amount of mental processing power for them to complete tasks and goals drastically rises.</p>
<p>While it’s always tempting to load up a site with a lot of content to attract visitors, moderation and minimalism are the key to ensuring perfect user-friendliness.</p>
<h1>Analysis paralysis, aka the paradox of choice, aka choice overload</h1>
<p>Whatever you want to call it, too much information density will result in analysis paralysis for your users, which is disastrous from a web design standpoint. Good design means your users know what they should do at every point of interaction with your site, so if they’re getting frozen in their actions because too much information is confusing them, you’ve got a problem.</p>
<p>Excessive information density <a href="https://www.abtasty.com/uk/blog/the-paradox-of-choice-freedom-overload-equals-the-analysis-paralysis/">leads to too many choices for your users</a>.</p>
<p>Consider the following scenario:</p>
<p>1) One product page features an image, a headline, a description, the price, a call to action and some reviews.</p>
<p>2) Another product page features several images, a few videos of the product, a bunch of testimonials, ratings, reviews, celebrity endorsements, excessive copy, a headline, subheadings, various calls to action for everything from an email sign up to an “add to cart” button, recommended products for cross and upsell purposes, etc.</p>
<p>Clearly, scenario two is the bad design because it is the epitome of analysis paralysis.</p>
<p>Let’s look at a short and simple example of a successful site where information density is kept to a minimum to ensure excellent user flows.</p>
<p><a href="http://www.1800petmeds.com/"><img style="max-width:100%;" src="https://netdna.webdesignerdepot.com/uploads/2017/04/001.jpg" width="650" title="" alt="" /></a></p>
<p>On <a href="http://www.1800petmeds.com/">1-800 Pet Meds’</a> product page, note how the goal of the page is clearly outlined, as users simply have to pick a flavor, size and quantity before adding to the their cart. Unnecessary clutter is completely removed, so shoppers can make the purchase with little friction.</p>
<p>This begs the question: how do you keep the information density to a minimum to ensure great UX?</p>
<h1>What to do to keep the information density reasonable</h1>
<p>As a designer, you have the ultimate power to make sure your site’s density remains under control. When in doubt, always err on the side of less is more, to ensure your user’s cognitive load doesn’t make it hard or even impossible to successfully perform routine tasks and actions on the site.</p>
<p>Start by ensuring each page and the site overall have a grand plan before you begin the design in earnest. This means asking yourself what the goal of the page should be, and what the information architecture should be to accomplish that goal.</p>
<p>In other words, put yourself in the user’s shoes. As a designer, it should be 100% clear to you how your user will achieve their page goal, whether you’re looking at the page on mobile, a tablet or on desktop. The user flow should be well-defined, crystal clear, and so simple that even unsophisticated users—i.e. those who don’t use the web all that much—can successfully complete the task.</p>
<p>Let’s look at another example of keeping information density under control, so that the messaging is effective and the UX is a pleasure.</p>
<p><a href="https://owner.ford.com/maintenance.html"><img style="max-width:100%;" src="https://netdna.webdesignerdepot.com/uploads/2017/04/002.jpg" width="650" title="" alt="" /></a></p>
<p>On <a href="https://owner.ford.com/maintenance.html">Ford’s landing page</a> for garage services for their vehicles, there’s no ambiguity whatsoever about what the goal of the page is and how visitors should accomplish that task. That’s because the page has relatively few elements, so less distraction from the page goal. When these conditions are met, the information density is manageable, making for excellent UX. Here’s what this page does right:</p>
<ul class="tight_list">
<li>Clean design with a lot of white space to focus user attention on page goal and content</li>
<li>Big, noticeable and vibrant call to action button</li>
<li>Clear call to action button microcopy</li>
<li>Persuasive messaging above the call to action button</li>
<li>Clear user flow and path to page goal</li>
</ul>
<p>Thanks to this page’s design, the user looking at the page isn’t going to feel overwhelmed and unable to complete the easy task of making an appointment for garage service. That’s because cognitive load was minimal, as the page used relatively few elements to clearly communicate what had to be done to complete the task.</p>
<h1>The other extreme</h1>
<p>Extremes are never good, no matter what side of the spectrum the pendulum’s on. Just as you can provide a bad UX for a site with too much density, you can just as much ruin the UX when you have very too little content.</p>
<p>As this <a href="https://www.nngroup.com/articles/roots-minimalism-web-design/">report on minimalism in web design</a> puts it, when your approach to minimalism is too extreme so that your interfaces feature very low information density, you risk making it very hard for your users to find the stuff that they’re looking for. When this happens, the UX suffers just the same, and designers need to remember to first design for users instead of sticking too closely to any design ideology.</p>
<p>In other words, minimalism is always a smart choice in design, but it has to be minimalism in moderation.</p>
<p>For a great example of moderate minimalism with information density that’s under control, we look to <a href="https://www.weebly.com/">Weebly’s</a> homepage.</p>
<p><a href="https://www.weebly.com/"><img style="max-width:100%;" src="https://netdna.webdesignerdepot.com/uploads/2017/04/003.jpg" width="650" title="" alt="" /></a></p>
<p>Note the huge, attention-grabbing headline, the value proposition, the description, the tagline, and the simple and clear call to action.</p>
<h1>Information density is crucial</h1>
<p>Information density, or the amount of content that a site shows its visitors, plays a huge role in several factors, including the UX, whether the visitor is able to complete the end goal or not, and, ultimately, page conversions.</p>
<p>Designers need to think about how dense the content is that they’re presenting to their users. They need to think about this from the very beginning, even before they put in the first line of code. During the wireframing process, designers need to start considering how the information density on their new site will be handled.</p>
<p>In general, designers ought to aim for minimalist information density, so it doesn’t overwhelm visitors. The caveat to this, though, is that it can’t be excessively minimalist, as that will create the same types of UX problems with “findability” and discoverability that too much content also creates. Balance is the key to awesome design.</p>

And thinking of time like money can diminish the meaning of a person’s work and psychological attachment to the job, thereby making tasks more stressful. Thus, increasingly common work arrangements that commodify time may increase stress.</p></blockquote><p>In other words, when we put a monetary value on our time, it makes us value our work less and also stress out over whether we’re using our time in the best possible way. One of the study’s coauthors, professor Jeffrey Pfeffer of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, <a href="https://qz.com/977695/being-overly-aware-of-time-equals-money-is-a-great-way-to-stress-yourself-out-and-die-sooner/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">criticizes the gig economy</a> and hourly work in general for making people extra aware of how much they earn with their time.</p><p>There’s another side to this, though: your time <em>is</em> valuable.

<p>I have been dabbling with scala for some time now and most of the questions that I get from my friends/colleagues/random people is that </p>
<ul>
<li>Why scala is hard?</li>
<li>How to learn scala in an easy way? </li>
<li>Is learning scala worth it?</li>
</ul>
<p>In this article I present the learning path that I took, the mistakes I made along the way and what I learnt.</p>
<p>I will focus mostly on a path for java developers since they are the majority, but other devs can also learn a lot from this article.</p>
<h4>Little bit of background</h4>
<p>The history of scala is summed up pretty well in the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scala_(programming_language)">scala lang wikipedia</a> article. Main motivation behind creating scala was to create a multi paradigm programming language which is functional,object oriented which runs on the JVM. We all know that many languages now target the JVM for its performance,widespread usage etc.,</p>
<p>Some of the other languages targeting the JVM are <a href="https://clojure.org/">clojure</a>, <a href="https://ceylon-lang.org/">Ceylon lang</a>, <a href="https://kotlinlang.org/">Kotlin</a>, <a href="http://groovy-lang.org/">Groovy</a>, <a href="http://eta-lang.org/">Eta lang</a> etc., besides java of course. But scala is unique in its own way.</p>
<h4>Scala as the first programming language</h4>
<p>This mistake is often because of <a href="https://twitter.com/thepracticaldev/status/721716958769635328?lang=en">buzzword first design</a> mindset. Scala is definitely not a beginner friendly language and it does not try to be. Not that it can't be, but it does not make sense to cram in so many things into a single language. The result will be a horrible mess of everything. </p>
<p>Well that's not encouraging right, but don't be disheartened. Contrary to the popular myths out there, scala can be learnt with moderate effort. If you are a beginner with no programming experience then there are several MOOCs which can teach you basic programming. One of the best that I know of is <a href="https://cs50.harvard.edu/">CS50</a>. You can then learn little bit of python and then progress to java.</p>
<h4>Learn the OOP side first</h4>
<p>Now you are all set to take on scala. The next big mistake people would normally do is to learn the functional side of it and get overwhelmed by it. Scala is not to be blamed. We should blame what we have been taught in our undergraduate courses. Almost all of the college undergraduate curriculum do not teach foundations of functional programming. As a result our style get fixed to an imperative/OOP paradigm which is very hard to get across.</p>
<p>It is very much possible to do object oriented/imperative style programming in scala as well. This multi-paradigm style makes it perfect to learn functional programming without losing too much of your hair. I would highly recommend to learn the object oriented side of scala and convert small coding snippets/algorithms from java to scala.</p>
<p>Since scala runs on the jvm, it can very much use java libraries with very minimal changes. Try consuming java libraries in it. The interesting part is that resulting code in scala will already be more concise/shorter due to the programming syntax of scala. </p>
<p>Do this step before trying core scala libraries, as they embrace functional programming more. The developers of scala didn't develop equivalent imperative/oop library equivalents of what is there in java such as spring/hibernate/gson etc., since you can use their java counterparts directly in scala. Language interoperability is a huge benefit and we must take full advantage of it rather than using core scala libraries just for the buzzword or being cool.</p>
<h4>Getting familiar with the ecosystem</h4>
<p>Many people underestimate this step. It is very important that you should be comfortable with the tools/ecosystem because that can frustrate you even more. Since scala works on top the jvm, the major difference from java would be the compiler obviously and then a different IDE perhaps.</p>
<p>Most scala programmers use <a href="https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/">Intellij</a> + Scala plugin,<a href="http://scala-ide.org/">Eclipse</a> as their IDEs. If you are an text editor fan there is something called <a href="http://ensime.org/editors/">ensime</a> which supports major text editors.</p>
<p>We can use the traditional <a href="https://maven.apache.org/">maven</a> build tool for projects, but it is recommended to use the <a href="http://www.scala-sbt.org/">scala build tool</a> or sbt for short. Sbt offers a more simpler way to deal with dependencies and you can learn with very minimal effort to get started.</p>
<p><a href="https://scastie.scala-lang.org/">Scastie</a> is a handy tool to share code snippets. Kind of similar to jsfiddle.</p>
<h4>Approaching functional programming</h4>
<p>Since scala combines OOP and FP at a fundamental level, we can resort to lazily include FP style in our codebase. From my personal experience I would take the following route.</p>
<p>Java -&gt; Scala OOP (gradual migration- since they can inter-operate)<br />
Scala OOP -&gt; Scala FP (can be gradual/complete refactor based on the project requirements)</p>
<p>IMO this what makes scala shine since at each stage of development/refactoring, it can be done part by part without breaking the regular development cycle if done properly.</p>

<h4>Why learn scala?</h4>
<p>So why learn a language which is hard to learn and takes so much of your time? Many people generally tend to learn new technologies/languages for career growth/getting a break into the industry and for this scala is perfectly fine. But apart from this functional programming can genuinely make you a better programmer even if you don't use it in your day to day work. It makes you think in ways you have never thought before and the decision to use it for practical purposes lies with you since you can program in OOP style as well.</p>
<p>It is also preferred in,</p>
<ul>
<li>Machine learning (Apache spark mllib)</li>
<li>Big data (Apache spark, Apache kafka)</li>
<li><a href="https://www.scala-js.org/">Front end development</a></li>
<li>It also has a <a href="http://www.scala-native.org/">native runtime</a> now, so you are not restricted to the JVM and can take advantage of native programming libraries. Scala native is in early stages btw.</li>
</ul>
<p>I have written an article on <a href="https://madusudanan.com/blog/why-scala-will-be-the-next-big-thing/">why scala will be a language that you should consider</a>. Do give it a read.</p>
<h4>Materials to learn scala</h4>
<p>Unlike many other languages, scala does not have a standard learning path that fits experienced functional programmers/novices alike. I have categorized materials based on their format.</p>

<p>Microsoft seems to be aiming at two different audiences with the high-end laptop and its Apple-y operating system, The Verge’s Dan Seifert says on <strong>Too Embarrassed to Ask</strong>.</p> <p id="Q2wYMZ">If you don’t follow the laptop market super-closely, you might have missed some of the significance of <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/2/15507450/microsoft-surface-laptop-announced-price-specs-release-date">Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop</a>, which the company announced May 2 at a flashy event in New York City. The new device is Redmond’s first “real” laptop. </p>
<p id="lnc5gd">“What’s different from the prior Surface models — the Surface, Surface Pro and then, a couple years ago, they came out with the Surface Book — those were all detachable computers,” The Verge’s reviews editor Dan Seifert said on the latest episode of <strong>Too Embarrassed to Ask</strong>. “You could rip the keyboard off, and they could work as tablets. Microsoft thinks of those as tablet-first, even though I think the vast majority of owners use them as laptops.”</p>
<p id="axgeOa">Microsoft also announced a new version of the Windows operating system, dubbed Windows 10S, which will only run applications from its own store. Seifert explained that the OS, which will be installed on the new laptop by default but can be upgraded to normal Windows for free in the first year, may be aimed more at schools and businesses than regular consumers.</p>
<p id="uYN7Pv">“It’s almost like if they took Windows and applied Apple’s iPhone model to it,” he said. “The advantage, Microsoft says, is that it’s more secure, more stable, it’s less likely to run down or get slow over time and a bunch of other security benefits. If you’re deploying a bunch of these to a business or a school, it’s easier to manage than standard Windows, where people can install whatever they want, whenever they want.” </p>

<p id="VfAw39">So, how to square the two new products? The Surface Laptop is aimed at competing with Apple’s MacBook Air, and to not compete with the cheaper Windows-based laptops that are the “bread and butter” of Microsoft’s OEM partners, Seifert said. </p>
<p id="X3yMzN">“The Surface Laptop is a high-end laptop that’s targeted toward a very specific niche of the education market, mostly kids going to college who are willing to spend $1000 or have the scholarship money to spend $1000-plus on a laptop,” he said. “And then Windows 10S is competing against Chromebooks that exist at the $200-300 price range and are filling all of the elementary and middle schools. So they’re kind of two separate stories.”</p>
<p id="FRsk2v">On the new podcast, Seifert joined <strong>Recode</strong>’s Kara Swisher and The Verge’s Lauren Goode in answering your questions about the Surface line and other laptops. He said the answer to the big one — should I upgrade now? — isn’t that different than it was last year.</p>
<p id="G9THmc">“If you’ve got a four to five year old laptop that’s working fine, doesn’t feel slow, it’s doing what you need it to do, then I don’t know why you would buy a new laptop,” Seifert said. “The new laptops that came out [in the past year], whether they were the MacBook Pros in the fall, or Microsoft’s new products coming out this year, they’re not fundamentally different than prior laptops. They offer the same experiences: They might be a little bit faster, they might be a little bit slimmer, maybe slightly better battery life. It’s not a fundamental change.”</p>

Indeed, for every 105-point uptick in a person’s credit score, there is a 32% drop in the likelihood of them divorcing. “Couples with the lowest initial average scores are two or three times more likely to separate than the couples with the highest average scores, and the likelihood of separation largely diminishes as scores increase,” the study found.</p></blockquote><p>Obviously, there’s a huge correlation/causation argument to be made here. A low credit score itself probably doesn’t <em>cause</em> a relationship to go south, but according to the study, it’s a good predictor of a bumpy road ahead. This is likely because bad credit and financial stress usually go hand in hand.</p><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-16270034" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="mid"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>Bad credit can make it hard to get a job, rent an apartment, or buy a car.

I can never remember what I have and what I’ve run out of, and finding things in there is a lost cause. I finally decided to finally get it under control hoping I wouldn’t find an embarrassing number of the same item* stuffed in the shelves. Spoiler: I did. </p><h3><strong>Set Yourself Up</strong></h3><p>First things first, get the supplies you need to organize your pantry properly: a trashcan, stool or chair (to sit on, and to reach everything if you’re short like me), and containers. I used two types of containers, <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70227986/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">airtight ones</a> to hold dry goods and <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40257499/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">plastic boxes with lids </a>to gather like items together. I’m not that fancy, so I just used painter’s tape and a sharpie to label the containers, but if making things look pretty brings you joy, you can go for nicer labels. Throw on The Great British Baking Show (my guilty pleasure) or a favorite playlist to make it more fun.</p><div class="js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit ad-unit--in-post js_ad-unit js_ad-in-post hide-contents"><div class="ad-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class="proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-34495103" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="IN_POST" data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down js_ad-middleboard hide-for-large-down"><div id="ad-container-68935744" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MID_BANNER"data-change-correlator="true"></div></div></div><p>Be prepared to throw some food out. Keep an eye out for food that’s gone bad or stale (<a href="http://lifehacker.com/why-expiration-dates-on-your-food-mean-nothing-1755569296" rel="nofollow">expiration dates won’t necessarily help you</a> out with this). I have no problem throwing something out if I know I won’t eat it (stale chips, bleh), but my boyfriend <em>hates</em> food waste, so I tried to do this part while he was busy playing video games in an effort to actually get rid of stuff. If you’re the anti-food waste one in the house, put all the food you plan to toss in a box and put a date on it, maybe two weeks later. Anything in the box you haven’t eaten by that date goes in the trash.</p><h3><strong>Figure Out How to Sort Things</strong></h3><p>Taking a step back and thinking about the best spots to put everything actually made organizing my pantry easier, so don’t rush ahead and just start throwing things on shelves. We’ve already established that I’m short, so I put that things I eat the most, like tea, baking supplies, cereal, and pasta (mmm, carbs) on the middle shelves. I stashed heavier items, like canned goods and glass jars of dried beans, on the lowest shelves—they fall, they don’t have a long way to go. The snacks my boyfriend and I eat most, those crunchy curls from Trader Joe’s are addictive, went in a plastic box at the front of a lower shelf (sorry dried fruit, no one likes you) for easy snacking access.</p><div class="ad-container js_ad-video row ad-wide ad-top js_ad-video-desktop"><div class="ad-instream--waypoint"></div><div class="ad-instream ad-instream--elastic instream-permalink ad-instream__initial"><div class="elastic__wrapper"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit ad-video js_ad-video"><div id="ad-container-33627312" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-media-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-zone-type="INSTREAM_VIDEO" data-instream-position="instream_3"><span id="js_instream_video-placeholder-33627312" class="js_instream-video-placeholder"></span></div></div></div></div></div><div class="js_ad-mobile-dynamic js_ad-dynamic"><div class="ad-unit js_ad-unit hide-contents ad-mobile js_ad-mobile"><div class="ad-mobile-inner"><p class="ad-label proxima"><small class=" proxima">Advertisement</small></p><div id="ad-container-36854405" class="ad-container js_ad-container" data-zone-type="MOBILE_IN_POST"data-paragraph-position="top"data-change-correlator="true"></div><p class="ad-label-bottom"></p></div></div></div><p>I also put together (by which I mean I cut up a cardboard box), DIY shelf dividers to separate all the sauces and oils. I sorted these by flavor, because that’s what I care about. Oils, including toasted sesame and walnut, on the right, savory (soy sauce, ponzu, and peanut butter) and acidic (apple cider, red wine, and balsamic vinegar) in the middle, and sweet and spicy on the left. Sauces are important to making things taste divine, so being able to quickly grab the one I want will be amazing!</p><h3><strong>Dive In</strong></h3><p>Now, it’s just down to putting things in their place. I made an overflow spot on the floor of my pantry (which I think is actually supposed to be a linen closet…) for anything that took up too much room, like jars of pasta, beans, and rice. The last thing you should do is walk anyone else in the house through your new pantry set-up so they put things in the right place, too.</p><p>*And in case you’re still wondering, here are the duplicate items I found: four jars of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furikake" target="_blank" rel="noopener">furikake</a>, two bags of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kombu" target="_blank" rel="noopener">kombu</a>, two half-full bags of rice, two jars of garlic chili oil, two bags of sundried tomatoes, and two packages of black garlic. Yeah...way too many duplicate items.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lifehacker/vip/~4/k8JOGZtGkz8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
