With summer right around the corner, many of you will face motorcycle rides in really hot

With summer right around the corner, many of you will face motorcycle rides in really hot temperatures, and while much attention gets put towards ventilated jackets (and rightly so), there’s another piece of gear that’s less talked about, but also important: boots. Hot, clammy feet are pretty gross, and wearing non-ventilated boots can make the situation even worse. Here, we’ve collected a small sample of vented motorcycle boots that will not only protect your feet, but also flow some air. They probably won’t do much to prevent the stench, but at least they can make your feet a little more comfortable on a hot ride. While not a boot, many riders prefer wearing riding shoes, especially if footwear is important on and off the motorcycle. Alpinestars is known for its motorcycling footwear, and even has dedicated sport and touring boots with ventilation, but here we’re sampling the Sektor vented shoes – likely a lesser-known product in the A-Star line. It uses durable lightweight microfiber to protect against abrasion without adding extra weight, and the perforated microfiber panels flow air to keep your feet cool when the temperatures rise. Alpinestars’ speed lacing sys...

An inspirational design that was featured as an installation at the 2018 Sydney Vivid Light Festival

An inspirational design that was featured as an installation at the 2018 Sydney Vivid Light Festival used Plexiglas sheets from Allplastics Engineering to achieve the desired outcome. Allplastics has been associated with several standout installations at the Vivid Light Festival over the last decade. The installation at the 2018 edition of the festival was commissioned by ANL Design and titled ‘Closer’. Constructed as a series of 3D interconnected translucent cubes, the installation invited visitors to enter and discover the maze-like interior where shadowy silhouettes could be seen through walls to reflect isolation and disorientation. Displayed on the corner of Phillip Street and Bridge in Sydney’s CBD, the installation was a commentary on social media and human relationships in the digital age. Allplastics supplied a large part of the Plexiglas Satin Ice sheets, which became the most outstanding feature of the display. Plexiglas Satin Ice was chosen for its unique light diffusion properties, satin surface finish that minimised finger marks and a written 10-year warranty for outdoor use. Plexiglas also offers all the benefits associated with acrylic such as safety, recyclabili...

The increased tariffs enacted by the U.S. on products coming from China raise the costs for

The increased tariffs enacted by the U.S. on products coming from China raise the costs for many American companies and threaten their future profits. On Friday, the U.S. raised import tariffs to 25% on $200 billion of Chinese goods, such as circuit boards, microprocessors, vehicle parts and machinery. President Trump also has warned about imposing 25% tariffs on $325 billion in Chinese goods that aren’t currently taxed. Such a move would cover virtually all Chinese exports to the U.S. and spread the pain to consumers. Consumers haven’t felt the brunt of the U.S.-China trade fight since the tariffs so far have largely targeted components used by manufacturers or because businesses absorbed some of the initial 10% tariffs. The tariff increase will cover a range of auto-parts imports, from spark plugs to exhaust pipes, and likely cascade through the supply chain, potentially affecting prices on new and used cars, industry experts said. While the 10% tariff levied in September had little effect on parts pricing, auto-sector lobbyists said an increase to 25% could push up makers’ costs for cars assembled in the U.S. using imported parts. The higher duty also could increase prices f...

Companies Focused on North American Trade Welcome Potential Relief

https://www.wsj.com/articles/companies-focused-on-north-american-trade-welcome-potential-relief-11558124375 U.S. companies that rely on doing business across borders in North America welcomed a potential return to more open trade on the continent after President Trump said he would remove tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and Mexico. “It’s definitely in our interest to see these go,” said Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of Stonyfield, a large organic dairy producer. The U.S. tariffs on metal created millions of dollars in additional costs for the lids that Stonyfield uses to seal its yogurts, Mr. Hirshberg said. Other U.S. dairy producers were hurt by retaliatory tariffs that Mexico and Canada implemented after the steel and aluminum duties took effect last year. Cheese exports to Mexico, a major market for U.S. dairy, were down 17% by volume in March from a year earlier due largely to the retaliatory tariffs, according to the U.S. Dairy Export Council trade group. Retaliatory tariffs of up to 20% on U.S. pork sold in Mexico, the destination for about a third of U.S. exports of that meat, have hurt hog prices since last July. Brad Greenway, who raises about 10,000 hogs a year...

Follow your nose — the brand taking fragrance back to basics

The corner of 62 Blandford Street in London is awash with a fluorescent pink glow. Among Marylebone’s four-storey town houses is a gallery-like space covered in floor-to-ceiling strips of neon lights. The room is empty, save for a plain white pillar in the centre furnished with one tiny 9ml bottle of scent — a vial of Rose Oil Isparta, one of five debut fragrance oils from the newly launched brand Ostens. Ostens aims to be a disrupter — and not just in retail. For Ostens is a fragrance brand whose primary product is not perfume per se, but rather, préparations — the raw materials found in premium fragrances. The brainchild of Laurent Delafon and Christopher Yu, founders of United Perfumes (a fragrance licensee which develops scents for luxury brands), Ostens is the duo’s first own brand. “We’re launching with five préparations,” says Yu, of the oils which are priced from £35. “We have cedarwood from Virginia, jasmine from Egypt, patchouli from Indonesia, rose from Turkey and the artificial molecule cashmeran velvet.” Sourced from IFF-LMR Naturals — the US company that supplies the perfume industry with its raw materials — these oils are exactly those used by the major brands. “O...

Father’s Day is fast approaching us already, which is a scary proposition for anyone who hasn’t really put any thought into what they’re going to get the man who helped raise them. But fear not, because we have a list of must-haves for when Dad is on the job, working around the house, or just relaxing on the weekends.
