I am the type that overprepares (just ask my husband…) but inevitably I find myself wishing I had brought a dish towel or a sharp knife—both of which you should make sure you have. I’ve put together some suggestions for the more specialized items you’ll want on your trip. The most important thing about a tent? Set it up before your first camping trip. You don't want to pull into your destination at dusk, poles flying everywhere, with no idea how they go together. Also, you need a tarp underneath your tent—but make sure you tuck it in beneath the footprint. Because if it sticks out, and it rains, it will efficiently collect water in a pond underneath. My first tent as an adult was a two-person Eddie Bauer, which I still have. I like them for compact ease-of-set-up at a reasonable price. The Stargazer 2($369) has vestibules in the front and back for gear, and steep walls (so more space inside, if you need to keep your pack in with you). Color-coded poles make it easy to set up fast—really fast (like five minutes), if you’ve practiced ahead of time....

Desperate Airlines Go All The Way Back To 737-200 After 737 MAX Fiasco

Lifestyle
The airline industry is under pressure right now. The grounding of almost 400 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft for safety reasons after two tragic crashes is well-known. Less understood is the fact that removing these aircraft from world airline fleets has meant the loss of 41 million seats so far.According to my Forbes colleague Ted Reed, a new report from OAG says the global airline industry (specifically the carriers who operate the planes) has lost about $4.1 billion in 2019 full year revenue due to the Boeing 737 MAX grounding. Although only 387 MAX aircraft have been grounded, the effect has been cumulative. The top six losers are China Southern, which OAG said lost 3,653,816 seats, Air Canada, 3,268,291, Southwest 2,962,400, Turkish Airways 2,706,367, American 2,186,292, and Norwegian Air, 2,178,036....

Warsaw Physicist Creates Calculator For Cooling Drinks

Physicist Álvaro Díez likes solving everyday problems with physics, and one everyday problem that frustrated him to no end was grabbing a cold bottle…only to discover that the beverage inside was barely drinkable.So, instead of just throwing the bottle in the freezer and hoping for the best, this Warsaw-based scientist decided to use, well, science, to solve the problem.“I kept having this itch I needed to scratch,” Díez says. “I’d open a seemingly chilled beverage only to realize it’s still lukewarm inside. I thought I could use science to solve this problem. After all, it’s just a few basic laws of physics.”So, with the help of his foodie friend, Tibor Pal, the two ended up building a Chilled Drink Calculator that tells you the optimal time and temperature to chill any drink based on its type, volume, packaging, medium, and initial temperature. “Tibor knew all about the perfect temperatures for various drink types, and that’s where we started,” Díez says. “Before you know how long you should chill something, you need to know what the opportune temperature it is to enjoy it.”...

Both Acura and Team Penske have played an important role in racing history, and continue to dominate the racetrack by producing cutting edge racing machines even today.The Acura ARX-05Acura was founded on racing principles, always keeping performance at the core of design philosophy when engineering their vehicles.

Meet The Man Lifting San Diego Onto The Global Food And Drink Stage

Lifestyle
With a population of nearly 1.5 million, San Diego is one of the biggest urban areas in the country. Yet for years its food and drink scene has been suggestive of a city that's second tier, rather than the second largest city in all of California. Overshadowed by the culinary prowess of the Bay Area and Los Angeles, it seemed complacent in its role as a beach town, where high-end meant fish tacos and hoppy pale ales—not that there's anything wrong with that. But Arsalun Tafazoli had different plans. Frustrated with the bad rap his hometown had amassed, he formed a hospitality group to weave soulful cuisine with elegant design into the local narrative. That was in 2008. Today that group—Consortium Holdings—consists of 600 employees spread across 16 bars and restaurants throughout San Diego county. Among them, virtually all of the city's most notable new openings; places such as Raised By Wolves, Polite Provisions, Born & Raised, that are lifting the seriousness of San Diego food and beverage. ...

The Kia Soul is More Than Just a Hamster Hauler

Lifestyle
The Soul’s evolution is a near-perfect embodiment of Kia’s progression as a brand over the past decade: It’s all grown-up now, affordable but not cheap, and refined but a little weird. Most of all, it just makes sense. I’ll admit to having been a Soul skeptic in the early days. The flashy light-up speakers and hamster-laden commercials made the car a tough sell for me, but that was then, and this is the 2020 Soul. This car is light years away from the one that hauled rodents to night clubs, but it’s still funky enough to be just as interesting. Testing a different car every week, it’s hard to settle in and just “live” with a car. I’m always analyzing the experience and trying to determine where the strong points and weaknesses lie. After just a couple days in the Soul, it began to feel like an old friend – the family car that has seen more than a few melted crayons scraped off the back seat (Kia: This didn’t happen in my test loaner, I promise). Controls are where they’re expected to be, outward visibility is excellent in nearly every direction, and aside from a few gripes about the transmission and start-stop functionality, the driving experience is surprisingly engaging....

The Desert Escape of Sedona Shines at L'Auberge de Sedona

Lifestyle
Don’t underestimate the power of a vortex, particularly if you’re in Sedona. On a recent trip to the stunning town known for its red rock formations, my iPhone went completely berserk at the top of a mountain, flashed green lights for a few hours, and eventually died. The Apple Genius Bar guy said this kind of malfunction was exceptionally rare, and I have never had issues with my Apple products. This is the power, perhaps, of a wildly spiritual and majestic place such as a Sedona. Even without a working iPhone though, I can’t help but love Sedona, especially if I get to stay at the L’Auberge de Sedona. If you’re not looking for the L’Auberge de Sedona, you’ll completely miss it. It’s a place that’s quiet, woven into nature, and serene by design. From the main street, nearly at the epicenter of the town of Sedona where pink Jeeps roll by and restaurants and shops display neon colored storefronts, a discreet driveway with a single, small sign points to L’Auberge de Sedona. One hundred or so yards down this drive one comes upon the nonchalant front doors L’Auberge de Sedona, and you’re immediately in another world. Through the small lobby, the property opens onto a multi-tiered wood deck where a bar, restaurant, and fire pits overlook a rushing creek under the cooling shade of slender Sycamore trees. There’s something immensely soothing about the sound of moving water, and theL’Auberge de Sedona takes full advance of this natural gift. Many of the tables at the Cress on Oak Creek restaurant rest a stone’s throw from the creek, and parts of the deck make way for the trunks of the mature Sycamore trees. The outdoors don’t stop at the L’Auberge de Sedona’s deck: one of the best features of the property’s luxury 62 cottages are the outdoor showers, some of which are also carved around trees. ...

Jeane and Paul Briggs met as teenagers while attending Christian summer camp. They fell in love, got married in 1976 and have been together ever since. Jeane always dreamt of having a big family but never fathomed just how unusually large her family would one day be. After she and Paul welcomed three biological children, Jeane went to Mexico on a mission trip and fell in love with a blind orphaned boy named Abraham. In 1985, Jeane and Paul adopted Abraham and soon felt a calling to adopt more children in need of a loving home. Jeane began her career as a compassionate nurse who often received calls from adoption agencies asking for medical advice on particularly difficult cases. Many of these calls were in regards to children who were abandoned by their birth parents, in countries like Russia and Ghana, because they suffered from deformities and special needs. ...

Alsace: The Classic, Yet Somewhat Forgotten, Wine Region

Lifestyle
If you’re a wine lover, you must have noticed the many different “trends” in wine over the years.Some trends are led by sommeliers, who by nature are often eager to jump onto the next “undiscovered” dazzler.Often, it’s an unusual grape, such as Mondeuse, a red grape from the Savoy region of eastern France.Or sometimes sommeliers latch onto a production method, like “orange wine” (achieved through the deliberate oxidation of white wine). Today orange wine is a bit passé, yet it can still inspire the occasional sommelier frenzy.Wines From Alsace: Why Are They Not More Popular?Alsace produces some of the best quality wines on the market today. Especially in terms of value for the price. The term “Grand Cru” signifies wines made from a mosaic of different terroirs that are believed to express the unique characteristics of that specific vineyard in the wine. ...

Review: Odeon Leeds Dolby Cinema -- The Best Cinema In The UK?

Lifestyle
“What’s the best cinema in the country?” It’s a question that is naturally, quite subjective, and for cinephiles definitely one worth arguing over in the pub. On technical merit at least, there’s no doubt that the new Odeon Luxe Dolby Cinema in Leeds is a strong contender.Dolby Cinema is a new format in the UK designed to give punters a premium alternative to the all-conquering IMAX and in the UK the company has exclusively partnered with Odeon.The Odeon Leeds Dolby Cinema itself can be found in Screen 2 (not 1 for some reason!) of the new complex in Thorpe Park in the Springs Retail Park on the outskirts of the city (there’s no connection with the theme park down south). This is off the beaten track even for locals, but it’s designed as a destination for shopping, food, fitness, and entertainment....

New York's Buenos Aires Is As Close To Dining in Argentina As You'll Find In The USA

As the story goes, Ismael Alba couldn't find a restaurant in New York he felt “captured the true experience and authentic cuisine of his native Argentina,” so he opened his own a dozen years ago at a time when the East Village was not the well-trammeled, well-lighted, trendy place it is now. Indeed, Alba was a pioneer in a neighborhood now flush with restaurants and bars. Buenos Aires is still one of the most colorful and lively, and the food really is every bit as good as I’ve found it to be in the city of Buenos Aires itself.Alba’s family were restaurateurs, and upon his arrival in New York in 1981, he worked his way through the business until co-opening an East Village spot called Coup.

On Martha's Vineyard, A Beach Resort Where Guests Can Feel Like Islanders

Lifestyle
Martha's Vineyard isn't really a resort island. Traditionally, the way to visit the storied Massachusetts getaway two hours from Boston is to rent a house (from Saturday to Saturday), or own a house (from generation to generation), or have a very rich and welcoming relative with a guesthouse on a bluff in Chilmark or Chappaquiddick. Winnetu Ocean Resort may be the one exception to this unwritten rule of Vineyarding. Open since 2000, Winnetu is the only resort situated at Edgartown's South Beach, and perhaps the best way to live like a Vineyarder without having to deal with a real estate agent. With 54 studios and suites and one- and two-bedroom cottages as well as 80 private townhouses and homes (including a new four-bedroom ocean view property) for rent, Winnetu offers the best elements of a Martha's Vineyard getaway: access to quiet strips of sand, proximity to bucolic bike and jogging trails, fishing, lobster-rolling, loafing. But you don't have to cook or clean, there's room service and child care for the little ones. ...

A Hand-Painted Picture That Changes The Perception Of The World Environment

Lifestyle
A brand new painting from Vietnamese artist Nguyen Thi Kim Duc was unveiled recently at the United Nation’s 2019 Vesak Festival in Vietnam. The painting, entitled ‘Cover of Future’ uses watercolor on traditional Vietnamese silk and depicts a dying tree, shedding the last of its leaves. The tree, although planted firmly in the ground appears to be partially submerged by poisonous seawater. The sky above is dismal and seems heavily polluted. In total the whole painting appears lifeless.As becoming addictive to modern art and visiting all neat modern art museums every year such as Musée de l’Orangerie, de Young, MoMA, Guggenheim, Prado and many more, I can say that the artist uses bold colors and applies them using strong strokes. The overall style appears to be similar to Van Gogh, the Dutch post-impressionist painter.

'American Factory' Shows What Happens When One Multibillion Dollar Chinese Company Opens Shop In An Ohio Town

Lifestyle
In 2014, a Chinese billionaire named Cao Dewang bought a former GM plant in Dayton, Ohio, and spent two years and half a billion dollars refurbishing it to be part of his global empire of automotive glass manufacturing, Fuyao Group. The factory was sold to the people of Dayton as an act of largess by a benevolent foreign investor, generously restoring prosperity to the region by creating 2,000 new jobs, many of which went to those who'd lost their previous jobs when the GM plant closed in 2008, amid the global financial crisis. But not everyone was buying it. At the opening ceremony, in 2016, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown publicly embarrassed Chairman Cao, as he is known, by encouraging Fuyao Glass America's new employees to consider unionizing. Brown was banned from the factory's premises for his remarks, and once FGA was in operation, Chairman Cao threatened that if the workers did manage to unionize, he'd shut the place down. ...

Why Bayonne Ham Is Reputed Through France And The World

Lifestyle
According to a legend in the south of France, Gaston Fébus—Count of Foix—wounded a wild boar while he was out hunting in the 14th century. The injured animal escaped. Months later its carcass was found in hot, salty spring water in the town of Salies-de-Béarn. Those who found it were astonished to find that its meat was preserved and still edible. This discovery of the preservative qualities of salting pork led to a ham production industry that has thrived ever since.This graphic and royalty-tinged legend may also be apocryphal: centuries earlier, Gauls were sending ham from this region to the emperor in Rome. Regardless, the historical importance of this product is undisputed. In the year 1660, when King Louis XIV married Maria Theresa of Spain in the town of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Bayonne ham was supposedly featured on the feast menu....

It is of note that when heritage is used effectively, it can lead to feelings of heartfelt nostalgia that takes us back to another place and time, which in effect makes for a brilliant marketing tool. Quite often a brand will play off of its perceived heritage, regardless of whether it is truly genuine of strategically manufactured. Their shared aim and interest is to instill into the target audience or consumer a sense of nostalgia that can evoke trust while simultaneously associating the consumer with days gone by and a feeling of better times. Does that sound about right?True heritage brands have great histories and strong back catalogues that can be drawn upon, reinvented and re-designed to fit today's standards while moving the brand forward into the era of modernity.

Even when the beaches and pools are full of swimwear that seems meant to be stared at (and lots of them are), you’ll still find a definitive amount of great style around. Shorts and swimsuits, which were once invariably banned from formal dining areas, are now welcome. For playtime you might choose to wear your swimsuit and throw on a fresh sport shirt. Most men, however, prefer to go bare-chested and donning a short-sleeved sport shirt only when required.Whether you're skimming the briny heading toward the Caribbean or Mediterranean ports of call, or simply headed to your favorite summer weekend destination, you will be sure to notice the changing tides with respect to style and fabrication in men’s swimwear....

Will Self-Driving Vehicles Erode America's Love Affair With Cars?

Lifestyle
It’s no secret that by-and-large Americans love their cars.Many of us pamper them in the way we dote on a favored pet dog or cat. We rely upon our beloved cars to get us to work and to get us to the beach or up into the mountains for hiking, and treasure them for the freedom and independence they can provide.It’s not an easy relationship necessarily.Sometimes your car plays dead and the engine won’t start, or your car hiccups while on the freeway and you end up sitting in the emergency lane dreading your predicament. Cars are somewhat demanding of attention, requiring that you keep your car in a semblance of shape that it can run on the roadways.There’s definitely a love-hate factor involved, hopefully veering more towards the love side of things, most of the time....

Here are the best neighborhoods in the Spanish capital:The oldest part of the city is home to the majestic Royal Palace and the lively Plaza Mayor. There are many impressive architectural complexes from the time of the Hapsburgs, including La Encarnación Monastery and Plaza de la Villa. Basically, it’s a place for historic palaces and monuments, with some of the city’s loveliest green spaces. (The Petit Palace Posada del Peine is an ideal hotel here.)

The Textile Brand Allowing Consumers To Make Informed Fabric Choices For Their Homes

Lifestyle
Three years ago, Elinor Pitt decided she wanted to address two issues she had become aware of in the UK's fabric industry. After originally training in electronic engineering, Elinor changed her career path in 2011 to that of interior design. This introduced her to a world of fabrics and furnishings and subsequently led to frustration with the eCommerce platforms which existed. She felt there had to be better methods of bridging the visualisation gap for customers wanting to purchase home interiors products. "I started Stitched in response to the issues I had personally come across firsthand." says Pitt, "First, mass production is challenging the environment. Second, technology can be used to help change this. In an age of technical acceleration, things like 3D and Augmented Reality can help reduce waste, allowing customers to visualise products before they are made." This was the beginning of Stitched, an online platform offering a range of blinds and curtains which are customisable, made to order and, through 3D Augmented Reality, can be visualised in customer's homes before purchasing....

Lifestyle
Nearly everyone with even a passing interest in food has heard of Noma, the near-mythical Copenhagen restaurant from chef Rene Redzepi whose "New Nordic" cuisine helped wake the world up to just how delicious things could get in Scandinavia.

The Yukon's Hottest New Mountain Biking Destination

Lifestyle
In the southern corner of the remote Yukon Territory, the volcanic massif of Montana Mountain rises above the tiny town of Carcross. It’s sacred land to the Carcross/Tagish First Nation (C/TFN) as one of the four peaks that Game Mother used to string her hammock and gather her animal creations before releasing them to the land. It’s crisscrossed with old hunting and trapping trails and cut through with Gold Rush-era mining roads punctuated with crumbling mineshafts. It’s also the Yukon's newest hot destination for mountain biking. In the mid-2000s, as C/TFN negotiated its land claim agreement with the Yukon and Canadian governments to return autonomy over its lands, the community of Carcross debated what kind of town to become in terms of economic drivers to sustain its people. The prospect of adventure tourism was deemed viable, and in 2006, the community opened Montana Mountain to a project called Singletrack to Success. Its mandate: “to develop a world-class network of single-track trails on Montana Mountain, a sacred site of Carcross/Tagish First Nation, while providing local youth with a summer job.”...

Visit This Sparkling Wine Town In Italy For A Great Fall Getaway

Lifestyle
Asti, which gave its name to a type of bubbly produced in the region, has everything you might want in an Italian city—significant art and architecture, great local food and DOCG wines produced on its doorstep. I have fond memories of Asti. It was the first place in Italy I spent time as a student rather than as a tourist, taking immersion courses before university classes began, and conveniently, the annual wine festival held in September coincided with my stay. The abundant spumante on offer was a welcome antidote to sitting in a convent school all day trying to master reflexive verbs and the congiuntivo.September is an ideal time to come to Asti when it holds three of its best-known events. The city has its very own Palio, a horse race dating from the 13th century, making it about four centuries older than the famous Siena equivalent. As in Siena, it’s run bareback and is a hotly contested happening—rivalries among the contradas, those districts, villages and towns that are eligible to compete, have endured for centuries. There's a colorful program on Palio race day, held the first Sunday in September (falling early this year on September 1): flag presentations in late morning and a pageant starting at 2 PM, with over 1000 participants in medieval costume threading through the city's historic streets. The race begins two hours later in the Piazza Alfieri....

Jordan Winery's Changing Of The Guard

Lifestyle
Rob Davis is considered the longest-tenured winemaker in Sonoma County, having worked at Jordan Winery since the inaugural 1976 harvest. This summer, he's turning over lead winemaking responsibilities to his protege Maggie Kruse, who represents a new generation of women winemakers making their mark on California wine. Kruse might be young, but the 35-year-old has worked alongside Davis for the last 13 harvests and has been responsible for all aspects of barrels and bottling plus day-to-day cellar management since she was promoted to assistant winemaker in 2009. That's to say – don't expect Jordan's classic cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay to change much.“Mr. and Mrs. Jordan set the foundation and style for the wines in the 1970s and we will never stray from that,” Kruse says. As head winemaker, she's maintaining the same dedication to making just two outstanding wines each year. Jordan's Russian River Valley Chardonnay is vibrant and fresh on the palate, more similar to a crisp Chablis than California's more typical oaky chardonnay. As for the Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, approximately 10% of the fruit is estate grown, while the majority of grapes are sourced from trusted growers with whom Davis has cultivated close relationships. Kruse hopes that in the future Jordan will be able to source even more grapes from their own estate. ...

5 Insider Ways To Experience Iceland's Most Popular Attraction, The Blue Lagoon

It has become increasingly popular in recent years to dismiss the Blue Lagoon as yet another Instagram travel fad. Or to deride the cerulean water and volcanic valleys of southwest Iceland as just another over-hyped photo-opportunity.

Great numbers of former Europeans found root on this desolate stretch of Israel’s beach dunes after April 1909, when representatives of the original 66 founding families drew lots for where they would build. In fact it was a felicitous move they made out of Old Jaffa to a flatter, bigger cluster of beaches a few miles north, although that would only pay off a century later, as the town had become a party destination on the jet-set bucket list. Tel Aviv’s palm-lined languor, its climate, its anything-goes cuisine, and above all, its kaleidoscopically polyglot population means that the city bears more in common with heady work/play cocktail of Los Angeles or Miami than it does with any of the frillier Med playgrounds in Greece, Italy, France or Spain.
