‘Central torso architecture’ in new bib shorts concept from GORE Wear

first_imgGORE Wear is kicking off its 2019 Spring/Summer Collection with a completely new bib shorts concept. The design is called ‘central torso architecture’ and keeps the seat insert in the correct position, helping to ensure maximum comfort.The collection comprises three purpose-built bib shorts designs – one for competitive racers, one for cyclists who spend a long time in the saddle and one for hot weather conditions. The new shorts have been designed in collaboration with Olympic cycling champion Fabian Cancellara.Head of Design at GORE Wear, Clemens Deilmann, reportedly had the idea several years ago: ‘a bib short design that stems from the central torso and keeps the seat insert in the correct position no matter what.’ After much tweaking, the new cycle apparel offering is being unveiled with the international GORE Wear athletes and current Olympic champion Fabian Cancellara for the Spring/Summer 2019 season.GORE Wear’s new ‘central torso architecture’ builds the bib shorts’ design concept around the seat insert. In common constructions the seat insert is usually applied to an engineered bib short ‘shell’. When riding, GORE Wear adds that bib short straps exert multi-directional tension on the seat insert and the stretchy fabric of the bib short.The company claims that, with ‘central torso architecture… everything revolves around the seat insert and how it is connected to the body and the bib shorts.’ This design keeps the seat insert in position – and thus provides a stable but sensitive connection between rider and bike.What all the seat inserts also have in common is the ergonomically shaped and patented GORE WINDSTOPPER Cup. This is ‘breathable in summer to prevent overheating while being preventative from wind and over-cooling.’ Related GORE Wear adds that the use of elastic stretch materials also enables range of motion for a rider’s legs while simultaneously helping to eliminate most of the usual seams thanks to clever pre-formed cuts. The wide, seamless shoulder straps and the silicone thigh cuffs put the finishing touch to the fit.Fabian Cancellara, current Olympic champion and GORE Wear ambassador, was involved in the development at an early stage, especially when it came to the fit and details such as leg cuffs, seam placement or the degree of compression. He said “The best shorts throughout my professional career were always the ones I could barely feel. And these new Race Bib Shorts are so wonderfully unobtrusive that you could simply stay in the saddle forever.”The C7 Race Bib Shorts+ use a new lightweight, non-abrasive and woven 4-way stretch material with a compact seat for muscle support without limiting range of motion – ‘ideal for competitions and hard training’. The pre-formed Expert Race seat insert provides comfort through the use of open-cell foams paired with a dense, pressure-resistant foam at the precise point where the bones meet the saddle in the extended racing position.The C7 Long Distance Bib Shorts+, made from non-abrasive knitted 4-way stretch material, is for longer rides. The straps are soft and do not dig in, the thick knit fabric is opaque, comfortable and soft, and ‘provides comfort and a safe seat even after many kilometres on the bike’. The Expert Long Distance seat insert is the same design as the Expert Race seat insert but provides more comfort in various positions on the bike (normal on longer rides) thanks to the more generous use of pressure-resistant foam.The C7 Vent Bib Shorts+ are tailor-made for the hot and humid conditions of midsummer. The fast-drying, elastic fine knit fabric of these minimalist shorts feels cool in the heat thanks to their heat and moisture-wicking properties. The fabric is non-abrasive and opaque. Cleverly placed perforations add extra cooling, even when the race heats up. The exclusive Expert Vent seat insert provides a blend of comfort and ventilation on hot days thanks to its open-cell and simultaneously pressure-resistant foams across the entire seat. It reportedly absorbs only a tiny amount of moisture and dries quickly.www.gorewear.comlast_img read more

Great year for winemakers in Croatia

first_imgThis year, winemakers in Croatia can be very satisfied with both the turnover and quality of wine, and at the end of the year they were all pleasantly surprised by the quick reaction of the Ministry of Agriculture, which finally brought order to the market with foreign wine in bulk to our market.Namely, at the beginning of December, the Ministry of Agriculture adopted a new Ordinance on the vineyard register, mandatory declarations, accompanying documents, cellar records and production potential, which prescribes a uniform procedure for controlling the quality of wine when placing wine on the market. With the new Ordinance, all foreign wines that come to our market in bulk will now have to be registered and reported to the agricultural inspection for control and quality. So now everyone will have equal treatment on the market, both domestic and foreign wines, which is the first and basic rule of fair market competition, but also the protection of domestic wine producers.2016 marked a lower yield, but better wine quality This year was also marked by the harvest of the “decade”, as the winemakers point out, despite the lower yield of about 20-25 percent due to bad weather during flowering, weather and temperatures during the day and overnight were ideal in the further process. growth of sugar and sugar while the acid level was ideal. All this favored the exceptional quality as well as the health condition of the grapes that arrived in the cellars, and thus the exceptional quality of the wine that will come out of our cellars. Lower yield, but much better wine quality.Total domestic consumption in Croatia is about 1.207.000 hectolitersIn the marketing year 2015/2016 total domestic wine consumption in Croatia is about 1.207. 000 hectoliters stand out from the Central Bureau of Statistics, while wines with a protected designation of origin (53,3%) were the most represented in production. Production of wine with a protected designation of origin in the marketing year 2015/2016 is 529. 130 hectoliters, and in the marketing year 2015/2016. the Croatian citizen consumed on average about 26 liters of wine, while the degree of self-sufficiency is about 82%.HGK estimate: Holiday spending will amount to more than 12 billion kuna”The growth of retail trade turnover in 2016, with consumer optimism, will amount to 3,2 percent, while in 2015 this growth was 2,4 percent,” said the director of the Sector for Trade of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Ema Culi on the occasion of the holiday assessment. consumption in the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. Thus, according to the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, spending will amount to more than 12 billion kuna, which is an increase of half a billion kuna than last year at the same time. Certainly, a part of the increased consumption will be felt by winemakers in December, both through increased wine sales and through the HoReCa channel.One of the solutions is branding of wine regions in CroatiaOne of the big problems on the market is the lack of a unique marketing strategy for branding Croatia as a wine destination – “Vina Croatia – Vina Mosaica.” Đuro Horvat, consultant for marketing and wine market for Agrobiz.hr, adds that Croatia will produce wines of excellent quality this year, but placement problems still remain. ” One of the disadvantages is the non-integration of wine as a strategic reference Croatian product in the national strategy and the excessive share of international varieties in relation to indigenous ones. One of the solutions is certainly to force one’s own Croatian label, and not umbrella brands. We must connect winemakers with each other through the concept of “Vina Croatia – Vina Mosaica”, ie brand our four wine regions: Dalmatia, Slavonia and the Croatian Danube region, Istria and Kvarner and Hilly Croatia. For our recognition as wine countries, that is the imperative of competitiveness. ” Horvat concludes.Wine Institute: Croats drink the most wine per capita in the world”Croatian wines are increasingly attracting the attention of world experts, and it is rare in the world for those wines for which restaurants with three Michelin stars arrange their menus.”, States the research of the Wine Institute, and thus Croatia is the third in the amount of wine consumed per capita in the world, just behind the Vatican and Andorra. According to the survey results, Croats drink per capita annually 44,2 liters of wine, while behind us is neighboring Slovenia, whose resident drinks 44,07 liters of wine a year. Only behind Croatia and Slovenia are the world wine superpowers France (42,51), followed by Portugal, Switzerland, Macedonia, Moldova and Italy.last_img read more

Minority long-term care residents, staff bear heavy COVID burden

first_imgAdding to mounting evidence of racial health inequities in the United States, two University of Rochester in New York studies published yesterday in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society show that minority residents and caregivers in nursing homes and assisted living facilities have suffered the most amid the COVID-19 pandemic.The studies include data from 7 of the 13 states that reported cases and deaths to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services through May 29: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina.Testing capacity, infection prevention protocolsIn a modeling study on disparities in coronavirus infections and deaths in 12,576 nursing homes the week of May 25, researchers found that facilities with low proportions of minority residents had, on average, 0.4 new COVID-19 residents each week (0 cases in 93% of facilities), versus 1.5 in those with higher proportions of minorities (0 in 78.9%).In multivariable regression analysis, the likelihood of one or more new resident cases was 76% higher in the high-proportion minority group. Likewise, COVID-19 weekly deaths were 0.1 in the low-proportion group, versus 0.4 in the high-proportion group.Weekly new coronavirus cases in staff members were 0.3 in low-proportion nursing homes, compared with 1.3 in those with high proportions. Self-reported shortages of staff and personal protective equipment (PPE) did not significantly differ between the two groups.But “it is likely that nursing homes predominated by racial/ethnic minority residents face more of other institution-wide issues, such as poor testing capacity, and inadequate staff knowledge and training in infection control and prevention,” Yue Li, PhD, lead author of the study, said in a University of Rochester news release.Nursing home staff in communities of color, who provide most of the direct patient care in such facilities, are more likely than whites to live in crowded homes, rely on public transportation to get to and from work, have low pay, and lack benefits, the authors said.Assisted living centers ‘ill prepared’A second study evaluated 2,542 COVID-19 infections and 675 deaths in assisted living centers. Statewide case-fatality rates ranged from 3.3% in North Carolina to 9.3% in Connecticut, in contrast with 12.9% and 31.6% among assisted living residents in those two states.Of assisted living centers with one or more COVID-19 cases, mid-sized communities had fewer overall cases than smaller ones. And facilities with higher proportions of minorities and residents with dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and obesity had the most coronavirus cases—but not deaths.In the news release, the authors said that the pandemic has worsened disparities between facilities with divergent levels of resources and quality of care. Assisted living facilities, they said, are usually “ill prepared” to care for sicker residents and often have limited oversight, inexperienced or low-level staff, and PPE shortages. They are also subject to only state—not federal—regulations, which may or may not be rigorous.They added that the federal government has given funding meant to address testing, PPE, and staff shortages only to the roughly 16% of assisted living facilities that serve Medicaid-eligible residents.”Relying on [assisted living] communities to muster a rigorous response to the COVID-19 pandemic largely on their own is clearly unrealistic,” the authors concluded. “Assisted living communities and their residents urgently need local, state, and the federal governments to pay at least the same level of attention as that given to nursing homes.”last_img read more

SOUL FOOD: Annual Thanksgiving dinner held

first_img Share This youngster is seen enjoying a Thanksgiving meal recently provided by H-E-B at the Port Isabel High School Cafeteria. (Staff photo by Ray Quiroga)By RAY QUIROGAPort Isabel-South Padre [email protected] her three young children by her side, Iris Covarrubias told the PRESS that she recently lost a good paying job in Brownsville and was forced to move back in with her parents, who reside locally. Adding to the stress, she worries about her husband who is serving in the Middle East.But on the whole, she considers herself lucky, because, as she said, she’s got her health and her parents’ support. She also found a job as a store clerk, although it’s not bringing in the money she once earned.Last week, she and about 1,500 other Laguna Madre residents set aside their worries for some soul-soothing good will as they enjoyed an early Thanksgiving meal provided by H-E-B at the Port Isabel High School Cafeteria during a Feast of Sharing Dinner.This marked the third year H-E-B spearheaded Feast of Sharing in this community. The event, however, was founded in 1989 and takes place in at least 31 other communities across Texas and in Mexico as part of H-E-B’s Food Bank Assistance Program.The dinners are open to the every resident of the community and meals included turkey with gravy, cranberry sauce, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, a vegetable medley and dessert. Student groups such as the Tarpon Silver Belles entertained the crowd.Hundreds of volunteers from the Port Isabel store as well as Point Isabel School District employees and student groups helped served the meals.According to approximate figures, volunteers helped prepare 300 pounds of turkey breast, 200 pounds of cornbread dressing, 15 gallons of gravy, 30 pounds of mashed potatoes, eight gallons of jellied cranberry sauce, 15 pounds of vegetable medley, 1,000 slices of pumpkin pie and 1,000 rolls.H-E-B’s Food Bank Assistance Program works year-round to prevent hunger in Texas and Mexico. In all, H-E-B estimates that more than 250,000 meals were served in 31 communities at Feast of Sharing Dinners.Read this story in the Nov. 15 edition of the Port Isabel-South Padre Press, or subscribe to our E-Edition by clicking here.

Is Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliott being targeted by the NFL?

first_imgIn this Nov. 24, 2016, file photo, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) smiles as he and running back Ezekiel Elliott, right, participate in a post game interview after an NFL football game against the Washington Redskins, in Arlington, Texas. (AP Photo/Michael Ainsworth, File)To summarize the situation surrounding Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott as a mess would be an understatement.AFRO Sports Desk Faceoff From false testimony to withholding information to a six-game suspension, Dallas’ season and Elliott’s brand will be on the line early next week when the NFL Players Association seeks a motion to postpone Elliott’s suspension and possibly overturn it. That motion follows a report which surfaced last week that the NFL used informal measures to suspend Elliott over a domestic violence case reported before last season. Whew!Elliott has been no choirboy since entering the league after a storied college career at Ohio State. But despite a string of questionable decisions since becoming a pro, the NFL hasn’t had any concrete evidence to pin on him. The NFL is instead using a sketchy abuse case to slap the 2016 NFL Rookie of the Year with a significant ban. This case has been a roller coaster, but is Elliott being targeted by the NFL? Perry Green and Stephen D. Riley of the AFRO Sports Desk debate debate this important question.Riley: Dallas Cowboys fans definitely think Elliott is being targeted, and they may have a point. The background surrounding this whole story has been a mess since day one. Information that was provided to authorities from Elliott’s accuser never matched witness accounts, and even the NFL agreed that Elliott’s accuser lied to the police. Elliott’s other actions during his explosive rookie season, from pulling a woman’s top down at a public St. Patrick’s Day parade to visiting a marijuana dispensary, all made people scratch their heads, but the direct cause of his six-game suspension was an absolute joke. Again, Cowboys fans and possibly all NFL supporters should be concerned.Green: Unfortunately for Elliott, the NFL has its own personal conduct policy which it uses to govern players’ behavior, whether the legal system files criminal charges against them or not. It may not be fair, but it’s what the players agreed to during collective bargaining negotiations. While Elliott has avoided legal prosecution thus far, the NFL demands that its players exhibit behavior and conduct that does not damage the league’s brand. Elliott’s six-game ban might have originated from a domestic violence situation, but it was really a culmination of all of his TMZ-worthy behavior.Riley: Then the NFL needs to re-examine its policy. Only in the NFL is it acceptable to punish a player despite the absence of legal action. The Dallas star on Elliott’s helmet and his popularity among fans and analysts is clearly being used against him. Police have records of Elliott’s accuser threatening to ruin his career, lying to authorities and even texting an associate about possibly blackmailing him using personal videos captured on her cellphone. Despite that evidence, the NFL still slapped Elliott with a suspension. It’s a classic case of guilty until proven innocent.Green: Some type of inappropriate incident happened between Elliott and his accuser, but investigators haven’t been able to identify it. Elliott’s casual pulling down of that woman’s top on camera at the parade was a hint of how reckless he could be. According to police findings, I don’t personally believe he became violent with his accuser, or that anything malicious happened, but there’s a strong probability that some type of incident occurred that shouldn’t have. The suspension might have been a bit excessive, but so has Elliott’s behavior for the last few years. With the NFLPA motion looming, we’ll learn soon enough if Elliott is really at fault. Whatever way this case plays out, Elliott needs to do a better job of keeping his name out of the wrong headlines.http://afro.com/dallas-ezekiel-elliott-targeted-nfl/last_img read more

Pitt Preview: Panthers looking to take the next step

first_imgPitt’s Quadree Henderson picks up 84 yards on a kickoff return for the Panthers. (Photo by William McBride)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Pat Narduzzi considers himself a bit of a sloganeer. The Pitt football coach adopted “Earn The Jersey” during his first season in 2015. Last fall the Panthers rallied around “The Pursuit.”This time around, Narduzzi has coined “Take It.” And it means exactly what you think it means.While the Panthers have put together consecutive 8-5 seasons under Narduzzi’s stewardship _ only the third time in the last 37 years Pitt reached the eight-win plateau in back-to-back years _ he doesn’t believe that’s anywhere near the ceiling. Not for a team that was the only one in the country to knock off national champion Clemson last season.In this Aug. 11, 2017, file photo, Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi instructs his players during an NCAA college football practice in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic, File)“We’ve need to take it to the next level,” Narduzzi said. “We’ve got to go take it is really where that comes from. Nobody is going to give us anything.”It’s a mantra that resonates with quarterback Max Browne. A five-star recruit coming out of high school, Browne spent three years at USC fighting for a shot at the controls. When it finally arrived in 2016, Browne’s tenure lasted just three games before he was replaced by freshman Sam Darnold.Frustrated, Browne graduated early and searched for one last shot. He found it at Pitt, which is developing a reputation as a place where quarterbacks can resuscitate their careers. Tom Savage did it in 2013 after making Pitt his third school in four years. Nate Peterman did it in 2015 and 2016 after coming over from Tennessee. Both are now in the NFL.Browne is in no mood to look that far down the road. He simply wants to play. His consistency during spring drills and training camp earned him the starting job for the season opener against Youngstown State on Sept. 2. And he has no plans of letting it go. There’s too much to be done. Namely trying to get that considerable chip off his shoulder, one he’s learned to embrace.“That will be a part of me for football, life, wherever I go,” Browne said. “I think that’s 100 percent the case. After year five, something has got to get you up, and that’s definitely the case.”Browne is hardly the only new face. Shawn Watson takes over as offensive coordinator after Matt Canada bolted for the same job at LSU. The Panthers averaged nearly 41 points a game last season by relying heavily on Peterman’s steady play and a running game led by resurgent James Conner.Watson opted to keep much of Canada’s creative scheme and even with Conner playing next door for the NFL’s Steelers, there are plenty of options. Quadree Henderson was an All-American as a kick returner and hopes to become a more consistent option at wide receiver. A deep backfield is led by 2015 ACC Rookie of the Year Qadree Ollison. Ollison took on a more supporting role in 2016 when Conner returned from a fight with cancer to become the leading touchdown scorer in ACC history. Ollison is eager to get back to work on a more regular basis.“When I was a freshman, I was just running around like with my head cut off,” he said. “Just running and it was a crazy year and it ended up being a good one. Now I’m way better than I was as a freshman.”Other things to look for as Pitt tries to reach the top of the ACC Coastal Division for the first time.ROUGH ROAD: The breakthrough moment of Narduzzi’s tenure came in a 42-39 victory over in-state rival Penn State last September. This year the Panthers have to travel to Happy Valley to take on a team ranked sixth in the preseason AP Top 25, part of a schedule bookended by tough stretches. Pitt faces the Nittany Lions on Sept. 9 and hosts Oklahoma State the following week. The Panthers finish the season by traveling to Virginia Tech then welcoming Miami the day after Thanksgiving.SHORTHANDED: Pitt allowed a staggering 332 yards passing per game last season, next to last in the country. Narduzzi remains dedicated to playing predominantly man-to-man coverage, confident his group will start to win more matchups than it loses. The Panthers will have to do it without highly touted recruit Paris Ford, who the team will attempt to redshirt after he missed the opening weeks of training camp for undisclosed reasons. Pitt will also play its first three games without star safety Jordan Whitehead, who is suspended for a violation of team rules.SHOWSTOPPERS: While average attendance at Heinz Field has risen since the move to the ACC in 2013, it can also be spotty. A record crowd of 69,983 showed up for the renewal of the Penn State rivalry, but only 34,049 showed up for the regular season home finale against Syracuse last year, a record-setting 76-61 victory by the Panthers. That’s not a typo. New athletic director Heather Lyke is working on strategies to keep the fan base engaged. The Panthers will give away a Conner bobblehead against N.C. State on Oct. 14, host a “Star Wars” night against North Carolina on Nov. 9 and move the playing of “Sweet Caroline” from its usual spot at the end of the third quarter. Instead, the staple will be played at different times in different weeks.___More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25last_img read more
