Merrell is kicking into full gear with a slew of Generation 2.0 (Gen2) minimalist running shoes and new models for training, water sports, and wellness: Run, Train, Water, Life. I wrote about the Minimalist Lifestyle almost a year ago and what a difference a year makes. I have tested over 50 minimal shoes in running (road and trail), fitness, casual, recovery, dress, and even golf. VIVOBAREFOOT (Evo, Neo, Ultra, Achilles, Aqua, Dharma) and New Balance (Minimus Road, Trail, Life, Trainer) had a good start but there has not been a footwear manufacturer that has done what Merrell did in one season. Merrell createad multiple products in a variety of outdoor categories with a consistent barefoot platform. Minimalist Running Shoes New for Spring 2012 are the Dash Glove and Bare Access ARC for women; Road Glove and Bare Access for men. The current Merrell Trail Glove and Pace Glove are also part of Barefoot Run. The Road and Dash Glove have synthetic leather and breathable air mesh uppers with reflective materials. They also have a fused rubber bumper. The midsole does not have the shock absorption plate found in the Trail Glove and that is probably what is allowing for a pancake flat landing for road running. The Bare Access barefoot shoes are gateway or transitioning or bridging shoes for beginners and those taking the leap into better running form. They are all zero drop like the other barefoot shoes but with some cushioning to help you develop your form slowly. It is almost identical to the Road and Dash Glove except for the extra 8mm M Bound cushioning and slightly different outsole lugs. Great for long runs or for those starting to transition to barefoot shoes. The Merrell Barefoot Access is probably the shoe that will appeal to the masses. It is a great first step for runners who are starting to 'get it' that minimal shoes are training tools for developing better running form and running injury free for life. Throw in a gradual transition plan and they're on their way enjoying running again no more pain and no more injuries well into their senior years. New for Spring 2012 is the Lithe MJ Glove for women. This is just a water repellant version of the Pure Glove. The current Merrell Lithe Glove, Contour, Pure, Embark, True and Sonic Glove are also part of Barefoot Train. All the barefoot shoes in this category are new for Spring 2012. They include the Swift and River Glove for women; Current and Rapid Glove for men. The Current and Rapid Glove both have synthetic leather and air mesh uppers plus quick drying materials with drainage ports in the tool and heel with a similar outsole to the Road Glove. The Rapid Glove is lace less with an adjustable instep strap. Most of the shoes in Barefoot Life are new introductions for Spring 2012. They include Serene, Delight and Wonder Glove for women; Edge and Slant Glove for men. Current models include the Tough Glove and Power Glove but I believe the Power Glove is being discontinued. The Edge and Slant Glove has a similar platform as the Trail Glove but with cow suede uppers and a Nubuck leather rear foot sling. The Slant Glove is a lace less slip on.

DEF CON is always a source of ingenious hacks and unconventional applications of technology, but Saturday presentation of Firefly, the grenade launcher cum digital camera, will certainly rank high up the Sklyraov Meter. Firefly, in all honesty, is nothing more than a wireless digital camera fired from a grenade launcher. It is designed to be shot 500 feet (152m) into the air, and then gently descend by parachute, all the while taking photos of everything below it. Why you ask? For real time, high resolution, multiplying battlefield reconnassaince. The developers, Vlad Gostom and Joshua Marpet, admit that the Firefly isn exactly a new idea military forces around the world already use throwable camera balls and grenade style cameras but this is their attempt to do something similar the cheap. a result, the Firefly is launched with a 37mm flare gun instead of a grenade launcher and flare guns are actually legal in the US. There no data on what kind of camera or wireless transmitter Firefly uses, but there are plenty of commodity, off the shelf components to choose from. To turn it into a grenade, the camera is simply placed inside a hard plastic bottle. All in all, according to TechWorld, Gostom and Marpet invention might one day be commercially available just $500. The question, though and DEF CON always raises more questions than it answers is what Firefly will ultimately be used for. It could certainly cut military spending, and it could significantly boost the effectiveness of search and rescue teams but imagine Firefly potential in the hands of a consumer! Photographers could capture awesome images of cityscapes and landscapes imagine the video footage you could capture but at the same time, voyeurs could take photos of almost anything or anyone, which would have all sorts of repercussions for privacy and security. Better (or worse) yet, imagine Firefly in concert with WASP, the do it yourself flying GSM and Wi Fi cracking UAV drone. Both of these inventions are civilian made and built using entirely off the shelf components and yet they provide features that are worryingly close to military grade applications. Basically, for better or for worse, we are seeing the commoditization and democratization of advanced technology. Once upon a time there was a chasm between commercial and government level computers and now the gap is something that can be surmounted by some ingenuity and a few hours in the basement. In just the past week we have seen hacks that can meddle with wireless insulin pumps and open car doors via SMS, and now Firefly and the WASP UAV. You have to wonder what will be next. A DIY nuclear reactor, perhaps? Men Nike Free Run 2 Grey White Teal Blue,For runners, running shoes are a constant investment. Wearing worn out running shoes makes the runner more prone to injury. According to a 1985 report in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, running shoes lose approximately 60 percent of their shock absorption capability after they have been used for 250 to 500 miles of running. The journal reported that wear was similar in all brands of running shoes. With this knowledge at hand, running shoes should be retired after about 300 miles of running use. Depending on the shoe, the terrain and the individual runner, wear of running shoes will vary. Regularly inspect the shoes for wear to determine when it is time to buy new running shoes. Inspect the soles of your running shoes. Do the soles look worn? If they do, it is time to replace them. Worn soles do not provide proper traction. Even worse, unevenly worn soles cause the position of the feet to sit improperly, which can lead to back injury. To check and see if the soles of your running shoes are unevenly worn, set the shoes on top of a table. Kneel down so that the shoes are at eye level. If the shoes are tilted, the soles are unevenly worn. Tap the shoes with your hands to see if they wobble. If the shoes wobble, they are unevenly worn. Running shoes that are not unevenly worn or are not uncomfortable can be worn during normal daily non athletic activities. Help the environment by giving your retired running shoes to an athletic shoe recycling program. Athletic shoe recycling programs recycle used athletic shoes into playground and sporting equipment. Check your local sporting goods store to see if it has a collection box for athletic shoes.

Sale Online Men Nike Free Run 2 Grey White Teal Blue,Women Nike Free Run 3 Wolf Grey Green A wire to wire victory in hot, humid conditions on a soggy racetrack has earned Queen Plate champion Midnight Aria a well deserved break. Veteran trainer Nick Gonzalez says Midnight Aria has been slow to recover from his stunning win July 7 at Woodbine Racetrack. As a result, the horse won run in the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes on July 30 at Fort Erie Racetrack. it all about the horse, Gonzalez said Wednesday from Fort Erie, Ont. can Triple Crown dream all you want and talk about it but at the end of the day you have to do what right for the horse. the best interests of Midnight Aria I going to pass on this race and give him time to recover from that gruelling humid, hot, rain soaked track day. claimed Midnight Aria for $35,000 for owner Tucci Stables on Jan. 24 at Gulfstream Park. The move certainly paid off as Midnight Aria overcame rain and hot, muggy conditions to win the 1 1/4 mile Queen Plate at 16 1 odds and claim the $600,000 winner share. claimed the horse in January but he had run twice before that and really made his first start in late September so when you tack on a few months before that to get him ready, well, he been going for a solid year, Gonzalez said. knew at one point and time even though we had Queen Plate dreams back in January when we claimed him . . . getting him to where we wanted to get him was going to take its toll on him. earned a break. I mean, he a big, strong horse but he has his limits. He was showing signs of wear and tear and I don want to bring him (to Fort Erie) with all the pressure and him not being 100 per cent. means Wando will remain the last horse to win the Canadian Triple Crown, achieving the milestone in 2003. Gonzalez said having Midnight Aria run in next month $500,000 Breeders Stakes, a 1/2 mile turf event and final Triple Crown race, at Woodbine remains in the plans. already know he can handle the distance and he loves the turf, Gonzalez said. he will have had time to recover. Midnight Aria run at Fort Erie would meant more to Gonzalez than simply gunning for the second jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. A 40 year veteran of the horse racing game, Gonzalez not only calls Fort Erie home but began his career at Fort Erie Racetrack. Midnight Aria victory earned Gonzalez his second Plate. His first came in 2010 with Big Red Mike, who also went wire to wire to capture Canada most prestigious horse race with Queen Elizabeth II in attendance. know I had said I didn think anything could ever outdo winning the Queen Plate in 2010 when the Queen was here, Gonzalez said. my mind there was never anything that could happen to me in the racing game that could outdo that. on July 7, believe me, it did. It really, really did. 116 year old Fort Erie track has hosted the Prince of Wales since 1929. But last year racing season was expected to be the track last after former Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty axed a revenue sharing agreement that gave racetracks a slice of $345 million in annual slot profits. In March, new premier Kathleen Wynne announced transition funding agreements with three tracks Fort Erie, Georgian Downs and Flamboro Downs to ensure racing dates at the three venues for 2013. That gave the Prince of Wales a one year reprieve at Fort Erie. However, Gonzalez is optimistic about horse racing future, both at Fort Erie and across Ontario. got a lot to build on this year, he said. year when we concluded our meet (at Fort Erie) we went out on a down note, we didn know if the track was going to open the next year and there was no reason for anyone to get horses and come back. not going to do that this year. When the end of September comes and we closing up shop here, we going to go out with a bang and we going to give incentives and we going to give people a reason to come back and be stronger and better. Period. We got to. Men Nike Free Run 2 Grey White Teal Blue Open semifinal Saturday, there will already be one clear winner Uniqlo. Both players will walk on court wearing the logo of the Japanese casual clothing company, giving the brand a huge payoff for what seemed like a risky sponsorship gamble on tennis over the last three years. After all, Uniqlo is still known more for jeans, khakis and knit shirts than sports apparel. "We're obviously very happy and proud," said Larry Meyer, chief executive officer of Uniqlo USA. "The buzz we're getting on social media alone has been incredible." Uniqlo, a subsidiary of Fast Retailing Co., is owned by Japan's richest man, Tadashi Yanai, listed by Forbes as worth $16.5 billion. His goal is to make Uniqlo the top clothing chain in the world and he is well on his way, with more than 1,400 stores, mostly in the Far East, and huge flagships in Shanghai, Tokyo and New York. Yanai raised eyebrows two years ago when he signed the endorsement deal with Djokovic, who had worn Sergio Tacchini, despite the fact Uniqlo was not known for athletic wear and had only one other major tennis player on its roster, the homegrown Nishikori, who had worn Adidas. They are still the only tour players who wear the red and white Uniqlo patch. The only other major athlete signed by Uniqlo is golfer Adam Scott. Open semifinals in 96 years. "What succeeds in branding are great stories and Nishikori has a great story. He's an underdog," Adamson said. "It's far more relevant from a marketing standpoint than the same old, same old. . Just another athlete wearing the Nike swoosh." Nishikori is listed by Forbes as the ninth highest earning tennis player in 2014, a roster headed by Roger Federer with prize money and endorsements totaling $56.2 million. Forbes puts Nishikori's annual take at $11 million a year, with endorsement deals with Wilson, Tag Heuer and Nissin noodles, among others. "His potential in Japan alone is huge," he said. Uniqlo's Meyer acknowledged Saturday's semifinal will indeed be a historic moment for the company, a chance to "align our brand with the people who are the best." But he refused to say if owner Yanai will fly in to witness it himself.
