orange juice Australia

Part of being a good UTS student is to have an appropriate and natural choice of our foods. Regarding orange juices than are offered in supermarkets, there are a wide variety offering almost the same: Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice, with no sugar, no preservatives, no concentrate and they promise it is 99,9% orange juice (with pulp included).

Mercola has find out that:

“For industrially-produced orange juice, after the oranges are squeezed, the juice is stored in giant holding tanks and the oxygen is removed from them, which allows the liquid to keep for up to a year without spoiling. It also makes the juice completely flavorless. So the industry uses “flavor packs” to re-flavor the juice.”

According to Food Renegade:

“Juice companies therefore hire flavor and fragrance companies … to engineer flavor packs to add back to the juice to make it taste fresh. Flavor packs aren’t listed as an ingredient on the label because technically they are derived from orange essence and oil. Yet those in the industry will tell you that the flavor packs, whether made for reconstituted or pasteurized orange juice, resemble nothing found in nature.”

When it comes to orange juice, squeezing your own at home would be about the only way to get the real thing.

CSS3 Media Queries, which allows the presentation of content to be tailored to a specific range of output devices, for example presenting a website differently depending on the screen size or aspect ratio of the device a visitor is using, has become one of the most talked about aspects of CSS3 in recent months, as the concept of responsive design has gained traction, largely as a result of the rapidly growing number of differing platforms (and screen resolutions) on which users now access the web, such as smart phones, tablets and even internet enabled televisions.

CSS4

Work has already begun on the next incarnation of the Media Queries module, CSS4 Media Queries, with the first editors draft made public earlier this year. Whilst the CSS3 Media Queries module focused largely on the ability to change the presentation of content for differing screen sizes and resolutions, CSS4 Media Queries looks set to tackle the variety of input methods and other capabilities of differing devices, and allow for differing presentation depending upon the device capabilities.

My name is Daniel Sempertegui. I am from Bolivia, this is my first time in Australia and so far it is great.

I am really pleased to be studying a Master degree at UTS, a course that is improving all my previous knowledge in the Interactive Multimedia. In the previous five years I was working full time as a Web Designer and Web Developer.

I have 3 titles of Engineering, I am a Industrial Eng., Product Design Eng. (a title achieved in The Netherlands), and a Systems Eng.

Although I am an Engineer in my head, I am a designer in my heart.

In my free time I enjoy to go to the movies, read technology and geek blogs, read comics and go to the gym.

After graduation I will be looking to work here in Sydney :)
