The SPIN is figuratively the coolest fireplace ever made…

I’d be compromising my journalistic integrity by using the term ‘lit’, but that’s precisely what the SPIN is. A portable fireplace that ditches the age-old flame for a fiery vortex, the SPIN is absolutely alluring to look at. The portable fireplace, or fire vortex if you’re the technical kind, can be used indoors or outdoors. It comes with a base that holds the fire-starter, and an optional glass hood that helps expand the flame to make the vortex bigger and more visible.The SPIN works by usin...

Brand Loyalty and Why It Is Vital

The Role of Brand Loyalty In Contemporary Business Brand loyalty is one of the most significant factors for achieving brand success. Without loyal customers who regularly purchase your goods or services, you will need to compete with other brands in terms of price and convenience. When people choose your brand based on how affordable your products are and how attractive your price is, your brand becomes a product. In this case, you have to deal with a significant fall in price and invent new...

Sports Coaches’ New Problem: Their Players Are Obsessed With “Fortnite”

“It was something that players were talking about during warmups or while they were dressing in the locker room rather than focusing on the actual hockey game that we were getting ready to play. Part of the issue was just the inability to put it aside. I did even on occasion hear the odd reference on the bench in the middle of the game.” – CBC

What A Digital Marketing Agency Can Advise Your Company When Choosing Colors

Breaking smartphone addiction: 10 Designs to save us from electronic enslavement

I read a pretty scary statistic online, which outlines that the average person stares at their smartphone screen for a minimum of 3 hours a day. In fact, that number went from 0.3 hours to 3.3 hours between 2008 and 2017. Today, it’s anywhere between 4-6 hours, which is anywhere around 30% of the time we spend awake. That’s 30% of our waking life spent staring at pixels. Mike Elgan points out that if we spent that time reading books, we could literally read upward of 200 books PER YEAR.So how ex...

Thought that was a MacBook? Look again, it’s a hybrid iPad Pro!

If you’ve read our long-form piece on the 2018 iPad Pro, you’ll get a pretty good idea of exactly how powerful it is.

In fact, probably the only visible difference...

Bill T. Jones On The Artistic Struggle To Make Art Useful

“I wanted to make a piece about a man who saves himself through art. I don’t want people to think he’s just a train wreck. The most important thing an artist has is the will to do something — it’s evidence of life and a spiritual wellness, even if the body is decrepit.” – Washington Post

Culture Shift: How Women Conductors Are Changing Orchestras

In a world that expects hierarchy and venerates individual genius, some musicians prefer to see their conductor not as a collaborator, but as a dominant, almost dictatorial leader. Many male conductors have been not only famous for their musical prowess, but infamous for their unflinching ways and bad tempers. A sexist double standard makes such shows of “temperament” taboo for women. – New York Review of Books

Even the new wave of suds-free “co-washes” or “cleansing cremes” oftentimes feel like conditioner …

Prescribing Art As Medical Treatment

The museum prescription was inspired by a movement in what’s called social prescribing. This has kind of taken off more in the UK. And in looking at the literature, we see that doctors were prescribing, in addition to things like eat better and get out there and walk more often, they were prescribing social activities within the patient’s community, with the belief that that was going to accelerate their healing and give them opportunity for more agency, that I am a participant in my healing. I...

Rammed concrete home in Portugal boasts passive design features and a green roof

Portuguese firm Atelier 1111 has unveiled a gorgeous home designed to strategically blend into the rural region of Grândola in southern Portugal. The Cottage House is an angular design embedded into a small hillside, putting part of the home underneath the arid landscape. This technique provides the house with a strong thermal envelope, which — along with additional passive cooling strategies such as a green roof and thickened stone walls — boosts energy efficiency. Using the idyllic setting a...

Successful Public Art Projects Can Transform A City (Sometimes In Not Good Ways)

Take San Antonio, Texas: Advocates say that the “Decade of Downtown” policies launched under the administration of Mayor Julián Castro—who is now running for president in part on his mayoral record—aren’t working for marginalized communities. New developments like the Latino High Line, plus the city’s rising economic fortunes, are putting inadvertent pressure on the Mexican and Mexican-American communities that these projects celebrate. – CityLab

The Art World’s Very Own Indiana Jones

Dubbed the “Indiana Jones of the Art World,” Dutch detective Arthur Brand has just recovered a stolen Picasso painting worth $28.2 million. Like the storyline of a heist movie, the 1938 painting Buste de Femme (Dora Maar)—depicting one of the artist’s mistresses—was stolen in 1999 from “a Saudi sheikh’s yacht on the French Riviera.” Brand (who spent four years on the hunt) says the painting was …

This flower-vase is also a fire-extinguisher

As useful as they are, fire-extinguishers are also designed to be too utilitarian and technical. They’re stored in attics and store-rooms, because they aren’t particularly aesthetic, and working them usually requires knowing how to operate them.Even though laws dictate that all homes in South Korea need to have a fire extinguisher, as many as 58% of them don’t… and the ones that do, have them lying in hard-to-reach places. In order to equip Koreans with a product that’s easy to use, and can si...

TV Exec And Collector Blake Byrne, 83

Before he got into collecting, Byrne “didn’t even know what I liked,” he recalled in a 2015 interview with Art+Auction magazine. New York dealer Jack Tilton suggested that he attend Art Basel, and after two trips to Switzerland, he bought six pieces in 1988 on a budget of $60,000. “That was the beginning of the collection,” he said. “After I got those first six, I was bitten.” – The Hollywood Reporter
