Underwear revolution: how lingerie grew up and put women’s comfort first | Fashion

In 2019 it will be 25 years since Gossard’s Wonderbra unleashed what has been called the “most iconic” advert of all time: Ellen von Unwerth’s black and white photograph of Eva Herzigova gazing down at her own marvellous cleavage above the legend, “Hello, boys.” Remember it? Of course you do. Later that year, the waif-like Kate Moss endorsed the same push-up, padded bra in the New York Times, declaring that “even I get cleavage”. Meanwhile in Soho, London, Joseph Corré and Serena Rees were opening Agent Provocateur, a brazenly sexual upmarket lingerie store whose ad campaigns Moss would later go on to star in. Also in 1994, AKA the Year of Our Cleavage, and in response to Wonderbra’s dramatic uplift in sales, rival lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret launched its first TV advert. VS has since become a global behemoth, best known for an annual catwalk show where its models, or “angels”, with spectacular bodies and pushed-up breasts – the highest paid of whom (models, not breasts) have included Adriana Lima, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Joan Smalls – parade the catwalks in their next-to-nothings under the appreciative eyes of front-row guests, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, and a globa...

In a pocket of Eagle Rock that’s pretty enough to make you forget just how close

In a pocket of Eagle Rock that’s pretty enough to make you forget just how close the 134 Freeway is, you’ll find this equally pretty Colonial Revival-style bungalow. Built in 1920, the home has been updated, but kept some of its best period features, namely a restored Batchelder fireplace mantle. Other original details include wood floors, moldings, and a built-in dining room hutch with a pass-through. One of the standout spaces is a hexagon-shaped breakfast nook, one of multiple rooms dressed in elegant wallpaper. In all, the 2,749-square-foot home holds two tastefully updated bathrooms and three bedrooms (including a master suite with a built-in wardrobe), plus a finished basement with a separate entrance. Sited on a corner lot spanning a healthy 9,704 square feet, the dwelling comes with plenty of usable outdoor space: a wraparound porch, a wood deck, and a backyard with raised garden beds. Last sold in 2014 for $1.18 million, 5290 Ellenwood Drive is listed now with Tracy Do and Eva Rose Berges of Compass for $1.65 million. Plans are still kicking around for 428 apartments right on top of Metro’s Pershing Square station entrance. Metro announced Thursday that it has awarded $...

This Japanese toaster costs US$270. It only makes one slice at a time

Over the past few years, there’s been a quiet boom in the pursuit of expertly reheated bread, from high-end toasters and premium loaves, to cafes catering to connoisseurs seeking that satisfying crunch. Joining the fray is the next best thing for sliced bread, a toaster designed for just one task: making a single piece of toast, flawlessly. Made by Mitsubishi Electric Corp., better known for its workaday refrigerators and rice cookers, the Bread Oven hit store shelves last month, retailing for about 29,000 to 30,000 yen (US$270). While that might seem expensive, Japanese consumers are already used to paying top price for toasters; the popular Balmuda, which debuted a few years ago, sold for about US$230. “We wanted to focus on the single slice, and treat it with respect,” said Akihiro Iwahara, who is in charge of technical development at Mitsubishi Electric’s home-appliances division. “Our technology and know-how from rice cookers helped us come up with a way to trap and seal moisture.” That’s crucial. Balmuda’s toaster uses a small amount of water to keep bread from drying out. Mitsubishi Electric’s Bread Oven uses a different method, sealing a single s...

The Taiwanese electric scooter manufacturer Gogoro has introduced a new, cheaper model. The Gogoro Viva has

The Taiwanese electric scooter manufacturer Gogoro has introduced a new, cheaper model. The Gogoro Viva has an output of 3 kW and comes with one instead of two replaceable batteries. The Gogoro Viva is ultra-light, weighing only 80 kilos, is broadly affordable, with a relatively low-price of 1,800 US dollars and made for city use with a top speed of 50 km/h and a range of 80 kilometres on its one battery. In Taiwan, the Gogoro Viva will be available from October. Gogoro plans to further expand internationally next year now that it has a full palette of longer and shorter-range city scooters. Gogoro says the Gogoro Viva makes use of “electric powertrain, smartphone connectivity and battery swapping in a lightweight urban design for shorter, quicker trips.” The lack of expense and power has not detracted from the scooter’s high-tech appeal – The Gogoro iQ Smart Keycard with NFC connectivity unlocks and starts the VIVA with one touch. With advanced facial recognition, fingerprint sensors and passcode security from the user’s smartphone, the VIVA is nearly impossible to steal. “VIVA was created to live at the intersection of urban transportation and self-expression and designed to ...

The Gut-Brain Axis: determining physical, mental health

THE MATRIX OF THE MICROBIOME, THE GUT AND THE BRAIN — the gut-brain axis — is a new paradigm for understanding health. When the matrix is functioning well, the body and mind function well. When the matrix is out of balance, physical health issues such as arthritis, diabetes, gut issues such as IBS and IBD, food sensitivities, liver problems, inflammation, musculoskeletal disorders and autoimmune diseases can arise. Mental health suffers, and neurodegenerative disorders can develop. The vagus nerve (10th cranial nerve) is the longest of the cranial nerves. In Latin, the word “vagus” means wandering, an appropriate way to describe the path of this nerve. It runs from the brain stem to the transverse colon. Along the way, it innervates the larynx, esophagus, lungs, trachea, heart and most of the digestive tract. The brain and gut feedback and feed-forward loops are linked by the vagus nerve. The long, convoluted pathway means the vagus is the main nerve of the parasympathetic nervous system, often called the “rest and digest” system. This is the autonomic system that helps the body conserve energy by slowing the heart rate (rest). The vagus nerve modulates digestion through the mig...

A REAL and WORKING Magnetic Motor Spinning Indefinitely

Ok, I saw this on Gizmodo (unexpectedly), and despite the fact that I’ve been blogging for five years now I’ve never actually seen something this amazing – the famous magnetic motor spinning by itself indefinitely, like this video shows. Now, I don’t think there’s any trick involved, there couldn’t be, could it? Just watch the whole movie. If you see anything suspicious, let me know. Magnetic motors have always fascinated me. I’ve even endorsed schematics of magnetic motors hoping that someday, someone will find the proper recipe and post it on youtube without being called names and accused of scamming people. Of course, those magnets you see in the video will eventually wear out in years, but the concept is great – it could be applied even further with stronger magnets. Just see the video and shout your opinions out. I urge you to. This self propelled generator that for 10-30k could give you a lifetime of power. Also I didn’t understand this part either, it has the ability to clean sea water, contaminated water and all water while generating and tricking eddy loss current into gains. If they had successfully got this into energy sector could of caused mass company losses or ou...

Netgear’s NightHawk AX8 8-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Router (RAX80) joins the Asus RT-AX88U as the first 802.11ax routers to hit our labs. Shaped like a futuristic starship, the RAX80 boasts an impressive feature set that includes five gigabit LAN ports, link aggregation, a powerful quad-core processor, and of course, 802.11ax wireless technology, also known as Wi-Fi 6. At $399.99, the RAX80 doesn’t come cheap, but it turned in some impressive scores on our throughput tests, and its file-transfer performance is top-notch. However, you don’t get the robust game-friendly QoS options and anti-malware tools that you get with the Asus RT-AX88U, and as is the case with the RT-AX88U, you’ll have to wait for Wi-Fi 6 clients to hit the market to take full advantage of all that the RAX80 has to offer. Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax or High Efficiency (HE) Wireless, is the latest Wi-Fi protocol. An evolution of 802.11ac technology, 802.11ax promises increased throughput speeds (up to 4.8Gbps), less network congestion, greater client capacity, and better range performance courtesy of several new and improved wireless technologies.
