Since the dawn of sliced bread have we not seen such grand ingenious culinary innovation. Yes folks, in large thanks to Brandeis University professor Daniel Perlman, we're about to take a step into a world where you can sustain a legit caffeine buzz (like several cups worth) off a muffin.


During his interview with Eater, Perlman says, "This flour contains 2.5 percent caffeine by weight, so if you were to put 4 grams of this into, say, a breakfast muffin, it would be the equivalent of drinking a cup of coffee."


Hold the phone. Say what now? And yes, it gets better; this flour's derived from green coffee beans, and rich in major health benefits. The roasting process for these green coffee beans helps retain antioxidant chlorogenic acid, which scientists believe can significantly diminish your risk of heart disease and diabetes.


If you're someone who's susceptible to over self-medicating on that java fix, Perlman says not to worry too much. He explains, ""Unlike some bars that are loaded with chemically purified or synthesized caffeine, this is natural food source caffeine. I would expect it to be absorbed a little more gradually than the caffeine in a cup of coffee, so [it would offer] a more sustained release and longer-term stimulation than you get when you drink a cup or two of coffee."


Perlman additionally informed Eater his coffee flour is a "very user-friendly ingredient", meaning it's pleasingly easy to bake with. Put your hands together and give a warm round of applause my fellow novice bakers.

Ciara wore a fancy dress to sing the anthem before the College Football Playoff Championship game on Monday night. It seems like a pretty normal situation but Bonnie Bernstein of Campus Insiders had a problem with Ciara's choice of clothing. She called her out, using the classic "think of the children" as justification for telling her to "cover up". The response to her Tweet has been overwhelmingly negative.

President Obama has just finished his last State of the Union address. As expected he touched on issues like drugs, poverty and partisan politics. He also gave an overview of the current state America is in, as the title of the speech would suggest. But the stand out moments of night were not in what was spoken, but in the attendees, namely Kim Davis and Paul Ryan who caught the internet's attention in a big way.

Sounds like the boys from One Direction are going their separate ways, or multiple directions. If these rumors hold up and the tabloids weren't in fact just having an out the ordinary slow day in need of some controversy, then we're looking at the end of a successful six-year career that all began in 2010 on a UK segment of 'The X Factor.'


This boy band was the first band in history to have all four of their first albums make a collective splash on the Billboard 200. Plus their body of work considered in its entirety is certified platinum by the RIAA, except for 'Made In The A.M..'


US Weekly states that Liam Payne's aiming to make a move to get into production, while Harry Styles will attempt a career in acting, and Louis Tomlinson's going to give the whole being a father thing a run for its money.


Here's to what was a fruitful career, and whatever's up ahead for these dominant pop stars.

The most recent exciting addition to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London calendar is a three course Valentine's Day meal plated and served within Hogwarts Great Hall, which is also set to include a hearty supply of Butterbeer, a tour of the studio, and a free wand.


Perhaps the biggest catch here is this meal's about to wipe out your account at Gringotts Wizarding Bank.


But hey, you could always hit up Harry Potter for a friendly loan, right?


No really though, the whole show costs £247.50 ($357) per person, or £495 ($714) for two people.

Plenty of us regularly dabble in the daily clandestine efforts of keeping that 'Clash of Clans' or 'Geometry Dash' or 'Candy Crush' on lock; and don't even think about reminiscing over the risk that went into trying to pull up a game at work or in the chambers of a lecture hall on the good 'ol laptop.


A quick look back at high school, and it seems something of a crying shame so many teachers were so adamant about shutting down that handheld/laptop entertainment. But I mean hey, kids gotta' learn right?


Well, it turns out students at Games High School in Norway pretty much have it made.


The Norwegian public high school in the city of Bergen, Norway plans to roll out an official school administered e-sports academics program.


Students enlisted in the program will devote five hours a week to playing games at school. The classes will include 90 minutes of physical training, which will be fine tuned for the e-games, and also incorporate reflex, strength, and endurance training exercises.


The school hasn't reached a final decision yet on which games its students will study, but there's talk about first-year games candidates being, 'Dota 2,' 'League of Legends,' 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,' and 'Starcraft II.'
