Genesis of Cookies, An Art Print That Illustrates the Documented Origins of Famous Cookies

Genesis of Cookies

SweeTooth Design, a place that gathers creative recipes from all over world, has created the “Genesis of Cookies,” an art print that illustrates the documented origins of famous cookies. They recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help with printing, packaging, and shipping costs. You can view more photos and check out the backer rewards on Kickstarter.

Out of curiosity SweeTooth Design went onto research and collect documented history for cookies. The finding contains long lists and details of cookies, which many people may not have the time to read. Eventually we continue with a simpler way to bring food knowledge and history by designing the first cookie history poster, “GENESIS of COOKIES.” There are two backgrounds to choose from: LIGHT and DARK.

Tone Deaf Test, An Easy-to-Use Online Test for Tone Deafness

Tone Deaf Test

Tone Deaf Test is an online test for tone deafness from music education technology company Easy Ear Company. The test gauges pitch sensitivity using questions like whether tones are the same, whether they’re going up or down, and whether one is higher or lower than another. While based on scientific research into tone deafness, Easy Ear Company notes this is not a replacement for a clinical diagnosis.

Most people who think they are tone deaf do in fact have the pitch discrimination abilities necessary to be great musicians. It is actually a lack of musical training which is to blame for their apparent difficulty judging notes.
