GRID IRON
“If it weren’t for the well-trained eyes of real refs, the classic NFL and college football plays depicted in this art poster series would have been bungled. Confusion on the field turns miracles moments into mis-calls. These 11 X 14 posters illustrate the glory of the game when the officials are official.” - Werd

REBOOT
"You know you’re a hardcore cyclist when a bike shoe modeled after an alpine mountaineering boot is on your wish list. Built to withstand deep snow with a Vibram sole, and keep you warm with 200g Thinsulate plus a Cordura outer, this SPD-compatible shoe could be the best winter bike boot ever." - Werd

KIND CAMPAIGN
“Kind Campaign is a movement and a documentary created by Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson which serves as an outlet for girls to share their stories, to learn from others’ experiences, and to create awareness, healing and understanding about girl-against-girl crime.
This week I was able to document the Seattle leg of their tour for Element Eden. We visited four schools and, I was moved to tears seeing the way that Kind Campaign connected with these young girls, and changed their experience and relationships in school for the better.” - Amber B, Amber B Create

SUMMER VACATION
"Google has just released some data letting us all know what we and our (geographical) neighbors did this summer. By compiling popular search terms used in Google Maps between May and September, we can see that, while Canadians and the Spanish were looking for the beach, Britons were more partial to a game of Squash, or a trip around Trafalgar Square. Back home, Death Valley, Redwood and Yosemite National Parks were earning the most interest, while Paintball was the top activity — but we’re hoping the two are unrelated. Want to see how the Dutch like to unwind, or how Indians like to cool off? Jump on the tour bus source link to find out more." James Trew, Engadget

FEMALE ANATOMY
"Despite being mostly old men, Republican pundits and legislators seem to know a lot about the female anatomy. None of it’s backed up by science, of course, but it’s sure delivered convincingly. We’ve rounded up some of the better quotes to better help you understand how your body works, at least in the minds of one side of the aisle." - Nerve

BOOMBOX
"Don’t wet your pants just yet, the Geneva XS Sound System is not the cheapest thing around. However, it is small enough to travel with, and especially suited for such with a clamshell case that flips open. Never mind that, you’re thinking, get to the goods. There’s the digital FM clock radio and Bluetooth® for wireless audio streaming (of course) and then there’s the alarm clock and illuminating touch-sensitive controls. A rechargeable battery will keep you in business for five hours of play time. Okay, now you have permission to wet your pants.” - Katie, Better Living Through Design

PINNACLE
"With input from track & field athletes Ashton Eaton and Kirani James, Nike has just released the Pinnacle Collection. They’re decribing the off-field apparel as “distinctive,” “refined,” & “understated” which basically means that wearing this stuff won’t turn you into a neon Nike billboard. No swooshes? No, they just didn’t do it.” - Werd

"Kacper Hamilton has designed a collection of tools influenced by the traditional Japanese ‘Higonokami’ for the Swiss ski company Zai. Native to Japan, Higonokami is a folding pocket knife described as a ‘living fossil’ within the world of knives due to its unchanged design and production technique since its creation in the late 19th century.” - Zai Higo
