Who says raw vegetables can't pack plenty of flavor? This vegetable sushi roll, made with creamy avocado and crunchy cucumber and carrots, has two secret ingredients: gomasio and umeboshi paste. Gomasio literally means "sesame salt" in Japanese. This condiment is sprinkled onto Asian cuisine like salt and is made from crushed, toasted sesame seeds and salt. Unlike salt, which only adds one dimension of flavor to a dish, gomasio gives food a nutty, roasted quality. Just be sure to keep your bottle in the fridge, because sesame seeds go rancid quickly, and nothing is worse than ruining a dish with rancid seasoning!
Also contributing to the saltiness of the sushi is umeboshi paste, or puréed, pickled Japanese plums. What does this bright purple paste taste like, you might be wondering? Umeboshi paste is at once extremely salty and full of savory umami flavor (the Western equivalent, in terms of texture and flavor, would be concentrated bouillon paste). Even just 1/4 of a teaspoon of umeboshi paste smeared on a sushi roll will give the sushi sufficient seasoning, so much so that you probably won't be tempted to dip the roll in a dish of soy sauce.
To see how this simple vegetable sushi roll is constructed, keep reading for the recipe.
Bill Nye the Science Guy turns 20 this year (as in the show, not the guy — he's 57), and to mark two decades of demystifying the sciences, the official Bill Nye the Science Guy (free) app has just been released in celebration.
Like the host himself, the app is quirky, zany, and full of fascinating science facts. Poke around Bill's desk to discover a MarsDial that reads time on the Red Planet, small Science Guy trinkets (bow tie mandatory), and eye-boggling optical illusions.
The app also features two games and a small archive of clips from the show's best episodes. The Planets and Magnetism demo some of our favorite experiments. Speaking of science investigations, the Science Guy app also has a built-in catalog of at-home experiments that can help explain concepts like static electricity and atmospheric pressure (great for kiddos!)
Download Bill Nye for mobile, give the app a try, and celebrate the Science Guy's 20th anniversary all year long by sending us your favorite moments from the show in the comments.

While we all know the bride and groom are the center of attention at the wedding (and in some cases, just the bride), most couples would agree if it was truly just about them, they would elope. When you throw a big wedding bash, you're essentially throwing your guests a party, so you want it to be fun and memorable. From the entertaining to the interactive, here are some creative ways beyond the dance floor to get your family and friends out of their seats and having a ball.
It's understandable: basking in the sun is one of the best parts about Summer. But putting yourself at risk for skin cancer and premature aging is not quite as relaxing. Whether you're heading to the pool or beach over the next few weeks or chilling on your back lawn, get a few key tips on the right way to enjoy the heat without risking your skin's health.
If you're going to lie out, do . . .
- Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ about 30 minutes before you go out because it takes time for the active ingredients to take effect.
- Set a timer on your phone to reapply sunscreen every two hours (or 40 to 80 minutes if you're swimming, depending on your product's labeling).
- Take a floppy hat and sunglasses that will protect your face and neck. Opt for a long-sleeved cover-up to get even more defense from harmful UV rays.
- Bring an umbrella. While it might seem obvious, the more time you can spend under the shade, the less likely you'll be to get burned or dehydrated.
- Limit your time in the sun. If you have fair skin and go out without sunscreen, then you could get a sunburn in 30 minutes or less. For darker skin tones, the unprotected time limit could reach up to an hour. To be on the safe side, keep the sunscreen on hand.
If you're going to lie out, don't . . .
- Overload on liquor or sweet snacks. Sugary drinks and alcohol can aide in dehydration. When you plan to spend hours in the sand, it's better to stick to water.
- Head outdoors when the sun is at its highest intensity, which ranges from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Forget to apply protection to the areas that are easily forgotten: upper ears, hairline, your hair part, underarms, tops of feet, eyelids, and under straps.
- Slather on baby oil. Enough said.
