The North Face Launches Climate Beneficial Beanies


The North Face announced its first Climate Beneficial™ product – the Cali Wool Beanie, now available in stores and online priced at $45. The Cali Wool Beanie was produced with a net negative carbon impact at the ranching stage of production – done through regenerative agricultural methods. The ranching practices are thoughtfully managed to capture more carbon in the soil than is emitted into the atmosphere. This practice, with significant expansion, could potentially help mitigate climate change.

Rising carbon levels in the atmosphere are driving climate change. The North Face, along with industry organizations and ranchers including Fibershed and Bare Ranch, are taking the initiative to address climate change with new methods for developing and designing products that reduce and trap carbon. By implementing these climate beneficial methods – though seemingly small scale in their current form – The North Face and these organizations are igniting change that has the potential to impact business practices on a broader scale.

"We strive to take a mindful approach to the design and development of our products," said James Rogers, Senior Sustainability Manager, The North Face. "We are excited by Climate Beneficial™ wool given its net negative carbon impact at the ranching stage of production and ability to make soil healthier for the planet. We developed the Cali Wool Beanie to challenge ourselves -- to see if we could create and bring to market a product that reduces our standard carbon footprint, while maintaining our performance and design ideals. We did it and look forward to expanding into other product areas in 2018."

Bare Ranch's carbon farming practices are expected to sequester 4,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year –equivalent to offsetting the emissions from about 850 passenger vehicles.

The beanie is priced at $45 and comes in two colors, Natural and Asphalt Grey. The accessory is Made in the U.S.A. from premium Rambouillet wool. It is a limited-edition item, exclusively available at select The North Face stores and www.thenorthface.com.

Doctor Invents Backdrop Tool for Taking Better Flat Lay Photos



Medium Photo Boards, selected as one of 2017 "Best Gifts for Photographers" is the brainchild of a busy Millennial doctor finishing a grueling residency program.  The idea for Medium Photo Boards occurred while browsing comments on Pinterest during a rare break in her schedule. www.mediumphotoboards.com
Medium Photo Boards are the first-of-its-kind, ORIGINAL flat lay photography backdrop board available in the USA.  Each surface is a high-resolution image created for ultra-close up product photography.
"The irony is that Mandy is an amazing doctor but a terrible Millennial," jokes Medium Director of Marketing, Laura Bartlett, "She really should be required to turn in her 'Millennial Card' - it was only out of necessity that she created her first Instagram profile and reactivated her Facebook account- and both were for Medium Photo Boards," laughs Bartlett.
A Disruptive Photography Solution – Ditch the D.I.Y.Prior to Medium Photo Boards, photographers, food bloggers, Etsy sellers, and influencers had to either create their own backdrop from watching YouTube tutorials – the results varied depending on how skilled the photographer was at Arts and Crafts -  otherwise, they relied on vinyl or paper backdrops which were prone to wrinkling, bending, or tearing.  Medium Photo Boards are a unique "Done-For-You," solution that perfectly "clone" natural surfaces.  It's virtually impossible to distinguish Medium Photo Boards from their real surface counterparts.
Professional Photography Tool"Medium Photo Boards are any photographer's best kept secret." "Interesting backdrops transform ordinary food pics to 'Food Porn' status." "I also have a small studio, so I appreciate how lightweight they are!" "They are easy to use and quickly stow away while I'm changing set ups," says Dallas Photographer, Jami Clayman.

Medium Photo Boards are photo-realistic, 1:1 replica images mounted on 28 x 22 inch PVC foam board in the following "cloned" surfaces:  Rustic Wood, Marble, Slate, Shiplap, and Wool.   One of the huge benefits of the boards is that they are rigid and self-leveling, therefore, it is possible to shoot product photos virtually anywhere there is good source of light.  
Each 28 x 22 inch photo backdrop board is under $50 and can be purchased on the company website or on Amazon beginning December 1st - just in time for holiday shopping.  www.mediumphotoboards.com

TOTO Announces 2018 Tour Dates




TOTO is pleased to announce a February 9th worldwide release date on Legacy Recordings (a division of Sony Music) for their brand new Greatest Hits package titled 40 Trips Around The Sun.  The 17 track album features three previously unreleased recordings: "Spanish Sea" "Alone" and "Struck By Lightning" alongside newly remastered classic tracks worked on by Elliot Scheiner & Gavin Lurssen and his team.  The core Toto members, Steve LukatherDavid PaichSteve PorcaroJoseph Williams re-entered the studio earlier this year to work on this release.
While going through the Sony vaults, the band uncovered several unfinished tracks that featured both Jeff and Mike Porcaro, one of which is now "Spanish Sea."  "This track is originally from the Isolationsessions," Steve Lukather commented.  "It's one that didn't make it and we had to re-write it including creating a new chorus. Thanks to modern tech we were able to play once again with not only our 20 something selves but with our dear brothers Jeff and Mike Porcaro reminding us just how deep their groove was. Bittersweet... Many stories, laughs and a few tears on this one.  It's classic Toto with an excellent solo and I kept my old 1985 melody solo Dave wanted me to do... Old meets new but since legendary pal Al Schmitt cut the tracks and Bob Clearmountain mixed...it sounds like it was done 2 weeks ago not 30 + years ago!"
All fans who pre-order the album beginning today will receive "Alone" as an instant grat track.  "Alone is a brand new song," Lukather remarked.  "This one was written with just the four of us really writing together and no one else in the room with us. We wanted to start with an 'up' song in terms of groove for the album. The lyric is darker but we are older guys now ands have lived life. The good, bad and ugly... we have lived it all and in the end we are all alone anyway. Proud of this piece and it just sort of organically happened." Fans can pre-order the album here: https://lnk.to/toto_GH
The third new track on 40 Trips Around The Sun: "Struck By Lightning" began with David Paich.  "I had the opening riff in my head for months," Paich said.  "Joe and the guys helped flesh this one out.  I love the heavy arrangement and Luke's solo on it is an all time great!"
Beginning on February 11th in Helsinki, the band will begin the first leg of their worldwide 40 Trips Around The Sun tour in support of their 40th anniversary.  36 shows in Europe have been announced to date.  The tour will be the band's most extensive run in years and is expected to hit the U.S. later in 2018. More shows will be announced shortly.
Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of TOTO.  As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5000 albums that together amass a sales history of a half a billion albums.  Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations.  Toto has over 400 million streams on Spotify alone along while views on YouTube far exceed over a half billion.
With close to 40 years together and literally thousands of credits, including the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson's Thriller, and accolades to their names, TOTO remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world. They are the benchmark by which many artists base their sound and production, and they continue to transcend the standards set by the entire music community, being simply synonymous with musical credibility.  Their repertoire continues to be current via high profile usage on broadcast television.  They are pop culture, and are one of the few 70's bands that have endured the changing trends and styles to a career enjoy a multi-generational worldwide fan base.

Fashion Preview: Retractable High Heels


For many years, women have had a love-hate relationship with high heels, admiring the stilettos' stylish designs and appearance, while lamenting the discomfort and painful toll the fashionable shoes take on their feet.
Seeking to bring stylish comfort to the high heels market, a new company Runway Heels,  https://www.runwayheels.com, is launching the industry's first patented retractable high heels, enabling consumers to instantly transform heels into comfortable flats at the touch of a button.
Imagine stepping out of your home, on your way to your job, hopping on the subway and arriving at the office in comfy flats. With a simple click, you transform functional flats into classy fashion heels and step your way into work.  
Created two years ago out of the experience of a former flight attendant and long-time businesswoman, the company's innovative shoe technology offers women much-needed relief from painful foot problems and potential medical issues long associated with high heels.
"This is a disruptive fashion technology product that will revolutionize women's footwear," said Runway Heels CEO Melody Avecilla. "Are you one of those that carry a pair of flats in your purse to change from high heels because you get tired or are in pain? Now imagine two shoes in one. One minute you're in the boardroom making a presentation in high heels, and then you dash off to the boardwalk wearing the same flats. How can you do that? With our patented technology, you can change from high heels to flats or vice versa in a matter of seconds all at the push of a button." 
Runway Heels' shoe features a Swedish-designed steel-grade mechanism that allows wearers to quickly convert their high heels to flats or back again. Offered in a full range of sizes and contemporary styles, Runway Heel's antimicrobial memory foam technology also provides additional comfort with temperature and pressure sensitivity, open-celled construction, conformability and resilience, and protection from the growth of microorganisms and transmission of harmful microbes. 
Numerous health conditions associated with the prolonged wearing of high heels are well documented in recent media studies, and include, Bunions, Osteoporosis, Sciatica, along with chronic knee problems, foot, lower-back, neck and shoulder pain. 
"You no longer have to risk your health to be fashionable with our convenient design," Avecilla said. "Runway Heels is the ultimate solution for the modern women who want something that can adapt to their changing landscape throughout the day."
The Runway Heels Legacy Model will retail for $199, and the Runway Heels Premium Model will retail at $249.
The company has also launched an Indiegogo campaign to bring its products to market.
