Magic Colored Milk 

In this animated gif, we can see what happens when a cotton bud, topped with dish-washing soap, is placed on a plate of milk containing droplets of food colouring.

What  happens
The liquid soap floats over the surface of the milk and attacks the fat molecules, causing it to move across the plate. As it does so, it picks up the food colouring, creating the swirling patterns: it's a truly explosion of color!

How does it really work?
Milk is mostly water but it also contains vitamins, minerals, proteins, and tiny droplets of fat suspended in solution. Fats and proteins are sensitive to changes in the surrounding solution (the milk).
The secret of the bursting colors is the chemistry of that tiny drop of soap. Dish soap, because of its bipolar characteristics (nonpolar on one end and polar on the other), weakens the chemical bonds that hold the proteins and fats in solution. The soap's polar, or hydrophilic (water-loving), end dissolves in water, and its hydrophobic (water-fearing) end attaches to a fat globule in the milk. 

The molecules of fat bend, roll, twist, and contort in all directions as the soap molecules race around to join up with the fat molecules. During all of this fat molecule gymnastics, the food coloring molecules are bumped and shoved everywhere, providing an easy way to observe all the invisible activity. As the soap becomes evenly mixed with the milk, the action slows down and eventually stops.

Introduction
I am the Founder and Executive Director of Tech For Kids America Foundation. I have a professional background in Web Design & Development, Web Marketing and Business Administration, with years of experience in community outreach. I have a daughter which I have been raising since she was 3 and a black labrador retriever. 

My interests range from History, Economics, Music, News, to Fitness, Playing Sports, and Health. 

My Background:
Born in Puerto Rico, raised in Miami, FL since the age of 9, grew up being involved in community service, volunteering at Miami Springs Rec Center as a teen. Being involved in politics at the young age of 24, I volunteered for the Barack Obama Presidential Campaign in 2008 and was elected to represent my district in the Miami-Dade DEC. Continuing my volunteering efforts, I became a youth football coach at Tamiami Colts, coaching the 120s.

Always full, long wait times, rude staff, not a place I would visit again

This is a great addition to Sweetwater, and with some improvements, it should be a really good place that lasts for a long time. Sweetwater is an area overfilled with Latin food establishments (with suspect hygenic standards). There was actually a Latin food restaurant in the space A&G currently occupies, it tried to appeal to FIU students and failed terribly. When I learned of their opening, I thought this was a Five Guys type of establishment, with burgers and a menu with prices and items that attracted FIU students and High School students. Then I saw their menu prices and selection; their burgers go from $10 to about $13. Although most of their burgers taste amazing and feature creative, hand-made sauces and toppings, it still seems a bit overpriced. Their selection of toppings is really good. Two people can easily expect to pay $50 for a meal. This is way out of reach for most young people that live in the area, including college students. IMO they should add a low-cost menu and increase their customer base, the place gets full on weekend nights, but has a hard time filling up during non-rush hours. This is actually a place trying to appeal to adults in their 20s and up. They have a huge selection of craft beers. Their decor makes me imagine I'm somewhere in Midtown. A mix of sports-bar and tattoo parlor (minus the needles). Don't ask for a milkshake or their staff will give you a hard time about it. I learned they don't sell it, apparently, and they don't feel they should "spoil" their customers. Big mistake, should be in the business of customer service, not just selling burgers! The owner seems like a nice guy, so I hope this place gets better and succeeds. Sweetwater needs more places like this.

This is a good place to visit if it is your first time. It gets really boring, real fast. They've had the same arcades since they've opened 10 years ago. Yet they are pretty expensive. Also the prizes they offer in exchange for tickets are an insult to customers, extremely lame and expensive: I think I can find those same prices at the $1 bin at wal-mart, at ten percent of the D&B cost. The place smells really musty and moldy. Their employees seem like they hate their jobs. This place can be really awesome if they'd invest some money in new attractions/arcades, cleaning the place up, and training staff in customer service.

A great place to drink natural juices and eat some good Cuban food. Parking is never a problem. food tastes great, price is standard compared to other similar establishments. Great place to take your family on a weekend.

This place has pretty much the same prices as bigger supermarkets, usually never long wait lines, and staff are pretty pleasant. Parking can be limited and a hassle.
