Yes! Quest's newest protein product is a two for one deal: muscles and... carrot-tinted skin? Check out their latest - Protein Spray Tan

As a fitness fanatic who routinely chows on Quest bars and infuses Quest protein powders into whatever I can get my hands on, this invention has me partly skeptical, partly impressed, and totally intrigued. Any thoughts on Quest's off-the-wall invention? More importantly what is the science behind this spray?

That sound you hear is (meat)heads exploding around the world.

We all know some coworkers and relatives who could benefit from this email safety feature :P

+Aaron Cohrs remind you of anyone? 
Google today updated Gmail with two new security improvements. The company also underlined a proposal to further boost email security as a whole. First up, Google has turned on its Safe Browsing service for Gmail users. While the feature has already been used to identify potentially dangerous links in messages, starting this week, Gmail users will see warnings if they click these links.

Story
Tagline
Bit off more than I could chew... Then chewed it.
Introduction
I'm a Houston-grown technology and adventure enthusiast.


My passion for technology ignited in 2012 when I joined drumBEAT Marketing as an SEO specialist, copywriter and content manager. It was somewhat of an epiphany realizing the transformation that was occurring in web technologies, changing the relationship between humans and devices, and thus, shaping our entire lives. It was and is awesome.

I graduated with an MIS degree from the University of Arizona just over a year ago with utmost eagerness to drive impact at tech mammoth, Hewlett Packard. And, in June 2015, I launched my professional career through the PREP (Professional Rotational Experience) program in Global Corporate Services. At the Plano office, I would begin my journey through four, six-month rotations across the organization's main functions (think procurement, global real estate, travel... all of the services provided to keep employees working effectively, safely, and happily).

My first rotation? I endeavored to bring together the 1,200+ Global Corporate Services employees from around the world in a virtually matrixed environment through Executive Communications. Keystroke by keystroke, I aligned the organization to strategic priorities, connecting employees to company news, events, recognition and tools/resources. I managed internal website content, messaging, and event coordination to increase visibility of information. The company’s greatest challenge during this time was also my greatest opportunity: HP would separate into two Fortune-50 companies on a 391-day timeline. Collaboratively with Organizational Engagement leaders, web developers and designers, I orchestrated and launched the HP GCS Celebration, a management of change initiative commemorating the legacy of Hewlett Packard through a month-long campaign. Leaders within HP have acclaimed this event for the lasting camaraderie that it generated.

By January 2016, I had zoomed on to my next rotation in Business Process Management and Web Technologies. Talk about a 180 degree turn! I shifted from content development and management, to structuring the platforms we use to host key information. As Testing Lead, I optimized and standardized the end-to-end technical webpage testing process for our organization’s intranet migration to SharePoint Online. During this time, I trained and led a team of four employees in technical testing and quality assurance practices for the migration of ~350 webpages, crafted and implemented a robust communications plan, and engaged project stakeholders through management of change initiatives. 

One year later, here I am dipping my toes into (actually more like cannon-balling) Software Procurement. The future excites me as I delve into more opportunities like these that align with my mission to continuously improve myself and everything in my path.
