We have all heard about vegetarians and vegans, but there are many kinds of veganism, such as raw veganism, which has become more and more popular across the world.

The story goes that Professor Marin Soljačić of MIT was disturbed by the beeping of his phone lying on the kitchen counter in need of charging. The professor, in the middle of the night, standing in his kitchen in his pajamas, decided there must be a way to charge his phone wirelessly. He, along with his team of MIT engineers, set out to develop a technology that did just that. Their efforts eventually led to the advent of magnetic resonance and the founding of WiTricity, a startup focused on turning this technology into marketable products to power homes, cars, and whatever else needs charging, wirelessly.

Saša Aleksič (24) is a graphic designer who is currently working for a company that makes video games for mobile phones and tablets. Still, when he comes home, he turns from a computer nerd into a cake wizard! Don't think this title is an exaggeration, because what you are about to discover is more than magical. His cakes and cookies are becoming more and more recognized, because Saša decided to replicate the world's most famous pieces of art on his desserts. He made his first cake with his aunt. The hardest one was the Gustav Klimt cake, which took him two days to paint and was half a meter high. When asked about how people react when they see what he does, he says: They often think these cakes are too pretty and refuse to take the first bite.
