Ultima Informational Video


Sports Techie talks Ultima Replenisher: the all-day, everyday health drink, with Seth. The Yoga real-time rehyration example after 106 degree heat helps you understand why their formulation concept of using mimimized process carbs with real food, no sugar and minimal salt, will begin replacing electrolytes immediately for instant relief from thirst, cramps and headaches.

Oh and look at that! Seth is wearing a Kicking Horse Coffee shirt! that bugaboo!

Move Over Mrs. Doubtfire, we've got Mrs. Palmer

Remember hilarious Mrs. Doubtfire?

Meet... Mrs. Palmer.

This project is the result of the second COM. Tech Video Challenge of Communications Technology 30 (Grade 12). These challenges are mini-projects assigned to students that correlate with the instructor's specifications. This video challenge is one of the total three that we would encounter throughout the duration of the course. This specific challenge was to create a commercial that is approximately one minute in length and advertised a snack item of your choosing out of the school's vending machines. As another homage to my Grade 11 production studio, "Muppet*Vision Productions", we decided to use the name at the end of the credits.

I decided to chose a baked, sea salt and vinegar flavored pita chip snack called, "Mrs. Palmer's Pantry Pita Chips". Then to present the ad, I thought it would be humorous to create a spin-off of Robin Williams' character, "Mrs. Doubtfire". If you are a Disney enthusiast and listen carefully you will hear a rendition of "It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" from Walt Disney's "Carousel of Progress" and "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from Walt Disney's "Mary Poppins", on the background soundtrack.

Find your comfy spot on the sofa, pay close attention to Mrs. Palmer, and for the love of all things heavenly, please grab a paper and pencil so you can copy down this intensive recipe... or Mrs. Palmer will get you!

Carrots to Your Health

Researchers at St Andrews and Bristol universities studied the relationship between skin colour and attractiveness, and found people with a yellow skin hue were perceived as particularly healthy and attractive, the Grocer magazine reported.

Eating strongly coloured vegetables and fruit such as carrots and plums makes people more attractive, according to a new British study.

Researchers at St Andrews and Bristol universities studied the relationship between skin colour and attractiveness, and found people with a yellow skin hue were perceived as particularly healthy and attractive, the Grocer magazine reported.

They also established for the first time that yellow pigments, or carotenoids, from certain fruit and vegetables played a key role in producing yellowness in skin.

As part of the study, 40 volunteers rated 51 Scottish Caucasian faces for healthiness and attractiveness.

The results will be published in the journal Evolution and Human Behaviour in March, the magazine said.
