Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Miguel Vallinas’ ‘Segundas Pieles’ Photo Series

posted by on 31/12/2013

Segundas Pieles is Spanish for ‘Second Skins’ and in his photo-series, Spanish photographer Miguel Vallinas executes a picture perfect interpretation of what an animal’s wardrobe might look like. At first glance you might brush this off as another well photoshopped photo-series but actually you begin to see Miguel’s thought process behind each portrait… from their facial expressions and poses to the clear synergy between each animal and their outfit. But yes the photoshopping must be applauded, and I do love the lighting- it’s given each portrait an air of mystery. This is only one project from Miguel’s body of work, which are all worth checking out, especially 24 Million Seconds Frames: Lonliness is About Two. More after the break.

Buy Essay For Me

posted by on 31/12/2013

When I hardly understand just one word of what they are saying, not to mention the main topics debate and hear IT people speaking with eachother, they are n’t dismissed by me as ” charlatans.” I create the concession they have their very own terminology which the employment it to speak and present the subtleties of info and computer science. Thinker Jacques Derrida considers on paper-in-general a complete program that feeds the individual -criture. of folks. For Derrida: “Il n’y a pas de hors-texte”‘”you’ll find nothing beyond your text.” Marciano Guerrero is really a retired investment lender, Columbia School-informed, and Vietnam Vet (67-68).

Lego – Megafactories

posted by on 29/12/2013

A lot of my holiday has mostly been spent doing the following – eating, more eating, playing PS4, reading and finding things to watch online. This falls under the last category – as far as I can remember Lego has been an integral part of my childhood and a source of creativity. Using my imagination to create the craziest of objects using these building blocks was one of my favourite activities, I miss the simple life. National Geographic‘s Megafactories takes a close look at the Danish building block company – their creation process to cultural impact. You’ll be surprised how much time and dedication is put into making the perfect Lego block.

Nike | Sochi 2014 USA Medal Uniforms

posted by on 27/12/2013

Nike has always nailed major sporting events. It is their field of expertise, after all (no pun intended). I was really impressed with their London 2012 USA medal uniforms, featuring an awesome silver windrunner and Nike Flyknits. Following in the same pattern, Nike has unveiled the medal uniforms for Sochi 2014 (the next Winter Olympics, held in Russia, for those that have been living under a rock), which also features silver outerwear and another pair of Flyknits (the winterised Flyknit chukka to be precise). Team USA is going to look particularly stylish up on the podium come February. Check out some images of the kits after the jump.

NikeFuel London

posted by on 23/12/2013

Last week, y’all probably saw the release of the NikeFuel Paris film all over the internet. Here’s the London edition – same concept, different city. Only so much you can do with this type of film and it encapsulates what our city is all about: the hustle and bustle, constant movement to bend, move, dance, twist, run, jump, volley, and break limits. I’m really digging the new FuelBand and the sessions functionality – it’s definitely made me more of an active user as it tracks my gym sessions more effectively. So it’s not just the runners who can get more than 5000+ a day.

Motorola’s Interactive Print Advert

posted by on 22/12/2013

Now here’s something different. Motorola have created an interactive print advert that will appear in the pages of select copies of Wired magazine. This unique idea is a worlds first and if a success could start a new trend. The ad will allow readers to customise the Moto X phone by giving them the chance to change to colour of the phone simply by touching the paper. Check out the video after the cut to see how the whole thing works and pick up a copy of WIRED‘s January issue at select newsstand’s and stores to put it to the test.

Casey Neistat | What Would You Do With $25,000

posted by on 19/12/2013

Casey Neistat has previosuly been featured on the pages of Y&Y back in 2012 and earlier this year I stumbled across a video that showcased his working environment and was impressed by his use of space. Today marks his return on the site and I can safely say that this is by far the most impressive thing i’ve seen from him. 20th Century Fox contacted Casey and wanted him to be a part of their promotional campaign for their new movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty however what Casey proposed to them was not what they were expecting. He suggested that they give him the marketing budget and allow him to help those affected by the Typhoon that hit the Philippines back in November and he would film it. Amazingly they agreed. I suggest that you give the film a watch, for me it was quite inspiring.

Football – A Game of Numbers

posted by on 18/12/2013

This is a reality check for Football fans across the country. More for the owners and FA but you know they won’t care. Football was once the working man’s game, a weekly escapism from their lives to enjoy the beautiful game. In the last decade, it’s become all about the money-money-money – this short film made by the New York Times tells the story of the growing financial imbalance between the wealthy players, the League’s deals and their fans. Exactly the reason I refuse to pay to go to more Arsenal games, £50 per game – GTFO.

posted by on 17/12/2013

Lawd. It’s been almost 4-5 months since our last Exploring places post – we’ve planned our next one for the coming Saturday with a few folks from abroad joining us. Pray for us, no idea how we’ll be getting into the joint yet. Toronto-based photographer Bart manages to capture and immortalize these forgotten places with great attention to detail, perspective and symmetry. Right I need to up my game this weekend. Images on the reverse.

Wellness with Technogym

posted by on 16/12/2013

Last month I visited an office utopia. Perched happily on exercise balls, the staff cooked up innovation for hours in their eco-friendly office spaces, basked in natural light. They broke from their creating for a one-hour workout in their lux, on-site gym before eating ridiculously cheap, natural and locally sourced food in their canteen for another hour and ended their break bonding over cappuccino and fuse-ball. Then I woke up flew home. Yes, my friends.  This place exists. This place was the Wellness Village in Cescena, Italy – Technogyms HQ. Read on to find out more.
