Going the distance: new Zoot Makai race shoe for 2016

first_img Related For the 2016 race season, Zoot Sports is presenting a new racing shoe for runners and triathletes alike: the Makai, a neutral trainer positioned as being suitable for all distances.Zoot notes that the unique sole construction makes the Makai attractive for a broad range of runners, and weighing only 265g (US size 9) it is lightweight. With convenience in mind, the Zoot Makai comes with both the Quicklace lacing system and traditional laces.The new Zoot Makai shoes will commence shipping in February 2016. In the UK, the recommended retail price (RRP) is £115, with an RRP of US$135 in the US.Zoot was ‘born in Kona, Hawaii, but has grown up at the beautiful beaches of California.’ The design and the name of the Makai pay homage to the journey of the brand: ‘Makai’ means ‘towards the sea’, symbolizing the move of the Zoot headquarters to Carlsbad in California.The shoe design is ‘bold and wild’. The Makai sports a midsole with an 8 mm offset and comes with two different degrees of cushioning. As a result, Zoot points out that the trainer is suitable for multiple weight categories and adapts to individual running style and performance level.Z-Bound inserts at the heel area absorb shock while ‘keeping the dynamics and versatility of the Makai.’ In addition, fore- and midfoot runners benefit from ZVA, Zoot’s trademark EVA, and a ‘phenomenal rebound’.While the upper is constructed of breathable mesh, the three-dimensional heel cup keeps the heel securely in its place.A release from Zoot adds, ‘Due to its great success in the world of triathlon, we have integrated the BareFit technology that provides you with ultimate comfort and a seamless internal fit even without socks.’Particularly handy for triathletes, Zoot delivers the Makai both with traditional lacing and the Quicklace system (including Z-Lock, an elastic strap making sure no loose laces disturb the running stride). Quicklace facilitates quick shoe application and removal and can be used for transition from bike to run, or for other types of stand-alone run races.The Makai outsole provides stability and aims to create a smooth transition through the entire run stride ‘with just the right amount of guidance.’ Zoot has also added high traction carbon rubber at the heel area in order to make the Makai as resilient and durable as possible.Zoot Sports was founded as ‘the world’s first triathlon brand’ on Hawaii in 1983. The brand focuses on providing athletes with performance footwear, apparel, wetsuits, and accessories. In the mid-90s, Zoot moved to Carlsbad, California. Inspired by the Californian way of life, a second, independent product line was born. Zoot Running footwear and apparel combines the brand’s technological expertise with relaxed surfer styling. Zoot is part of the K2 Sports Group.www.zootsports.comlast_img read more

Retired judge volunteers at Yellowstone

first_imgRetired judge volunteers at Yellowstone October 1, 2015 Regular News Retired judge volunteers at Yellowstone Senior Judge Fred Koberlein returned to Yellowstone National Park this summer, this time as a volunteer interpretive ranger.In 2013, the News reported on Koberlein’s first trip “out West.” That year, after retiring as the Dixie County judge, he spent six months living and working within two miles of Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone. This summer, in addition to his duties at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge, Judge Koberlein was appointed a volunteer interpretive ranger.“In 2013, I enjoyed and learned a lot about the Yellowstone ecosystem.” said Judge Koberlein, “Now, in a small way, I have a chance to pay back the park.”As a volunteer interpretive ranger, he goes on roving patrols in Yellowstone’s upper geyser basin, where a substantial percentage of all the geysers in the world are located.“I have seen almost every one of them erupt,” Koberlein said.During his “roves,” his primary concern is the safety of the visitors. The hydrothermal features of Yellowstone are potent and latent potential dangers.“The water associated with the hydrothermal activity is usually very near the boiling point, 198 degrees Fahrenheit at this altitude,” he said.Additionally, the various wild animals in the area pose significant dangers.“Bison look so docile and so slow, that people easily perceive them to be tame or harmless,” Koberlein said. “We have to continually remind people that wild animals are just that — wild.”This year, as of July, five people have been injured by bison in Yellowstone.On a typical “rove,” Koberlein encounters 50 or more visitors. In order to be able to answer their questions, Judge Koberlein has had to study a wide range of topics including history, wildlife, plants, and especially geology of the Yellowstone area.“I am a long way from being a geologist, but I can explain in lay terms how a mud pot, fumarole [steam vent] or a geyser works,” Koberlein said. “The best part of the ‘rove’ is to talk with the visitors. Their questions range from identifying the fish in the river — yes, you can see the trout; the water is very clear — to plants and hydrothermal features.”In addition to his “job” and his volunteer work, Judge Koberlein still has time to hike, fish, and travel around the nearby Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming areas.In August, he visited the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in remote Wyoming, where Japanese-Americans from the West Coast Exclusion Zone were interned during World War II“Those American citizens of Japanese ancestry must have thought that they had been shipped to the moon,” Koberlein said. “One can wonder for hours — how intense was the hysteria that caused us to trample on the Constitution?”On the other hand, Judge Koberlein can quickly summarize his experiences inside the park, “Fantastic! Yellowstone is unique. It is on almost everybody’s bucket list; if not, perhaps it should be.”last_img read more

Tempe approves entitlements for One Hundred Mill

first_imgHayden House Tempe, LLC, a partnership between San Diego-based Douglas Wilson Companies (“DWC”) and Hensel Phelps Development LLC, a subsidiary of Hensel Phelps based in Greeley, CO, announced the name of their new mixed-use development project on the corner of Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway, One | Hundred | Mill. The project name, which is the actual address for the project (100 S. Mill Ave.) and newly released project renderings were unveiled by the partners during a May 7 meeting with the City of Tempe where the project received unanimous entitlement approvals. Construction on One | Hundred | Mill is expected to begin before year-end with completion expected in 2017.“As the northern gateway to downtown Tempe on one of the most vibrant intersections in the state, the project at this site needed to be something we can celebrate and it is,” said Mayor Mark Mitchell. “Respecting the historic Hayden House and using this process as an opportunity to revitalize this community asset was key to One | Hundred | Mill’s success. The City of Tempe is excited to see a project that will help advance the downtown into the future, while simultaneously preserving its past.”One | Hundred | Mill is a $190 million mixed-use creative office, retail and lifestyle-hotel development located on the 2.51 acre parcel widely considered to be the gateway to Tempe’s downtown core. This landmark project consists of two towers: a 15-story 260,000 square foot Class A office building and a 15- story, 240-key boutique hotel along with 17,300 square feet of complimentary restaurants and retail space.DWC Chairman and CEO Doug Wilson explained, “One | Hundred | Mill has been well received within the market as we are raising the profile of restaurants, hotel rooms and office space in the area. Since this project will be the front door into the Mill Avenue District, we felt using the iconic address as the projects name emphasized the commitment to celebrating Tempe and everything it has to offer.”In addition to DWC and Hensel Phelps Development, the project team for One | Hundred | Mill includes contractor Hensel Phelps, Shears Adkins & Rockmore Architects, the office leasing team of Jerry Noble, Patrick Devine and Greg Mayer with Cushman & Wakefield and the retail leasing team of Brent Moser and Rhonda Diaz Caldewey with DTZ Retail.The offices at One | Hundred | Mill begin on floor eight (8) and offer abundant natural light and sweeping views of Tempe and Metro Phoenix with extensive glass lines wrap the building. Large, flexible 31,500 RSF floorplates with 10 foot finished ceilings provide the ultimate in modern work space, designed to accommodate today’s work style with amble spaces dedicated for collaboration, socialization and productivity.“The office market is in transition. New standards in design are transforming the way people work and the demand for walkable, urban settings is undeniable. Not surprisingly, One | Hundred | Mill is being very well received in the marketplace,” according to Patrick Devine, Senior Director, Cushman & Wakefield.One | Hundred | Mill offers ground floor retail and restaurant spaces in both towers and the unique 10,000 square foot restaurant space in the historic Hayden House (former Monti’s La Casa Vieja). Hayden House is being repurposed to create a one-of-a-kind indoor/outdoor dining destination that preserves and honors all of the historic aspects of the building while redeveloping it into a new and exciting destination along Mill Avenue. The Office Café space is a 1,000 square foot restaurant opportunity on the ground floor of the office building. Two retail components are available for boutiques and specialty shop space, the 2,400 square foot Mill Avenue Retail space on the ground floor of the hotel tower and the 3,900 square foot Rio Salado Retail space on the ground floor of the office tower, which can be further expanded with an optional mezzanine.“We’re honored to be working with the Douglas Wilson Companies and Hensel Phelps to help bring the next great Arizona dining icon to One | Hundred | Mill in what will be the signature component, Hayden House, Arizona’s longest continually occupied structure. We’ll be taking a step forward for mixed-use development in Tempe while preserving a vital piece of heritage and legacy,” according to Brent Mallonee, Vice President, DTZ Retail.The 240-room boutique hotel includes a rooftop pool, fine dining restaurant and 12,000 square feet of conference facilities shared with One | Hundred | Mill’s office tenants. Combining luxury, style and world- class service, the hotel will bring a whole new world of ultra-modern accommodations to Downtown Tempe.“The community outreach while concurrently working with the City of Tempe has been an enjoyable process for us,” said Nicholas Wilson, Managing Director of DWC. “The commitment of the residents and businesses in Tempe validates why tech companies, professional firms, restaurateurs and individuals alike are attracted to Mill Avenue to live, work and play. We are very excited to be a part of continuing the renaissance for which Tempe is experiencing.”One | Hundred | Mill is located less than a block from the METRO Light Rail system and the 3rd Street and Mill Avenue station and across the street from Tempe Beach Park and Tempe Town Lake. The development will be a stand-out project in downtown Tempe which has become a magnet for innovative businesses and retailers because of its central location within the Valley and its close proximity to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and Arizona State University.last_img read more

More and more research shows friends are good for your health

first_imgThe Washington Post:Overwhelmed recently by the stress of an impending move — along with the usual demands of a busy life — I turned to the people I love.In small chunks of time between tasks on my to-do list, I called and texted with my sister, my parents, local friends and old friends scattered around the country. Some conversations turned my stress into laughter. Others made me cry. One friend came over to clean out my closet. Then she took our kids for four hours so we could pack without interruption.…In a 2010 meta-analysis that combined data on more than 308,000 people across 148 studies, for example, researchers found a strong connection between social relationships and life span. The size of the effect rivaled that of better-known health-related behaviors such as smoking and exercise.Because the studies used different methods, the analysis couldn’t say exactly how many more years of life we might gain by having true pals, says lead author Julianne Holt-Lunstad, a psychologist at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.Read the whole story: The Washington Post More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more
