timberland boot laces Foamposite Jordan 6 Rings

The last 4 years the Jordan 6 Rings have seen some pretty cool designs. The 6 Rings colorways have used patent leather, laser printing graphics, and 3M leather that glows in the dark. One of the best Air Jordan hybrids has defifinitely had a great run so far. And that run doesn’t look like it is going to end any time soon. The next phase of the Jordan 6 Rings design now includes Foamposite. That’s right, Nike Foamposite has jumped aboard the 6 Rings express.

Nike Foamposite is a synthetic molded upper. It is a sponge like material that provides a shine only seen on a freshly waxed car. It is truly a very cool look. As long as it is featured on the right model. The Air Foamposite One, although a lightweight, stable, and quality basketball shoe; was and is a hideous shoe. On the other hand, the foamposite looks absolutely beautiful on the Air Penny 1/2 cent. The Cranberry and Eggplant colorway are particularly stunning. This synthetic molded upper provided the lightest weight in a basketball shoe when it debuted in 1997. They were also the most expensive Nike shoe for basketball at that time when they retailed at $180.

The first Nike shoe for basketaball that used Foamposite was the Nike Air Foamposite One. The Foamposites were actually a signature sneaker for Penny Hardaway. There were a couple of models made for Penny that used a Foamposite upper. The Foamposite One and the 1/2 Cent. In fact, as we speak,
kids timberland boots sale Foamposite Jordan 6 Rings
Foamposite Retros are being dropped right and left in form of 1/2 Cent Pennys and Penny Foamposite1’s. And it looks like the Penny Hardaway Foamposite combination is going to continue. Recently the Air Penny 3 was released in several colorways.

The Foamposite edition of the Jordan 6 Rings uses a beautiful royal blue foamposite upper. As all Jordan 6 Rings do, this Jordan 6 Rings shoe combines elements of the AJ 6,7,8,11,12, 13, and 14. In this case the Jordan Retro 11 upper that the Jordan 6 Rings uses is completely covered Foamposite. The outsole is that used on the Jordan 13 and the fuzzy Jumpman logo tongue is ever present in the color black. Complete with the lace locking system of the Jordan 6, this edition of the Jordan 6 Rings is pretty dope.

With the last two Jordan 6 Rings using the Foamposite and Carbon Fiber, it looks like the shoe will continue to recieve the royal treatment of high tech materials in the creative process. One of the best Jordan shoes for basketball keeps getting the red carpet treatment,

timberland mens coats flying nursing home owner risks crash landingFederal fraud charges could cost Korn control of facilities

In the world of nursing homes, Marc Irwin Korn held a very important post until a few months ago.

The Amherst businessman owns nursing homes in Batavia and Lewiston. From 2002 until late last year, he served as a gubernatorial appointee on a council that helped to determine state policies on nursing homes and had a voice in who gets to run such facilities in the state.

Korn, 54, was charged May 20 with a felony count of scheming to defraud. Federal agents allege that, from early 2006 through August 2009, he stole as much as $1 million from a charity, from patient trust accounts at his nursing homes and from employee payroll accounts.

Korn, who has pleaded not guilty, declined to comment on the allegations to The Buffalo News.

The state Health Department, which is “closely monitoring” Korn’s nursing homes, is considering taking control and putting a receiver in charge, said Jeffrey Hammond, a spokesman for the department.

“The department’s top priority is assuring the health and safety of the residents,” Hammond said. “Health Department staffers have been conducting on site reviews daily and will continue to monitor both nursing homes as the situation evolves.”

In addition to owning Fairchild Manor Nursing Home in Lewiston and the Batavia Nursing Home in Batavia, Korn is the former chairman of the board of directors of a charity known as the American Friends of Assaf Harofeh Medical Center.

After an investigation by agents from the Internal Revenue Service and the FBI, Korn was charged last month with stealing money from the charity, from payroll accounts at the nursing homes and from trust accounts of some of his patients.

Two workers at Fairchild Manor told The News that, several times in the past year, they were unable to cash their paychecks until a week or two after receiving them.

“Eventually, the bank would cash them for you, but it’s very upsetting when you take your check to a bank and they won’t cash it,” one of the employees said. “Everybody is wondering what is going to happen here next.”

Henry A. Sloma, a Niagara County businessman who once operated nursing homes and sold the Lewiston facility to Korn in 2001, told The News he has spoken to the Health Department about possibly become the receiver for Korn’s facilities.

“I feel [Korn’s] homes should absolutely be taken over if not me, someone else,” Sloma said. “They’re having problems with staff paychecks, and eventually, you’re going to reach the point where this is affecting residents.”

The federal government’s Nursing Home Compare website ranks Korn’s Batavia facility as “average.” The Lewiston facility is ranked as “far below average.”

The rankings are based on health inspection reports, staffing levels and other factors.

In court papers, federal agents, meanwhile, say Korn and his family lived “an extravagant lifestyle.”

Korn’s expenses included a $710,000 Amherst home purchased in 2006, plus various family vacations, groceries, meals at restaurants, high end clothing and shoes, college tuition, antique store merchandise and “frequent salon visits,” IRS Special Agent Michael K. Klimczak said.

According to town records, the home had been the residence of Dr. Barnett A. Slepian, a doctor who performed abortions and was fatally shot Oct. 23, 1998, in the kitchen of the house.

In 2005, Korn became chairman of the American Friends group, which raised money to support a medical center in Israel, federal prosecutor Gretchen L. Wylegala said.

Korn told federal agents last year that checks he wrote to himself from the charity’s bank account were “reimbursement for expenses incurred in behalf of the charity,” Wylegala said.

Korn said he had receipts for all those expenditures, but Klimczak said an analysis of the receipts showed that Korn could not account for $190,000 of the checks he wrote from the charity to himself.

Korn resigned from his position in the organization in September 2009, according to Gerald L. Lukton, treasurer of the charity, based in Denver. Lukton said FBI agents recently questioned him about Korn’s activities, and he said he hopes Korn winds up reimbursing the group for any money he stole.

“[The charges] came as a shock,” Lukton said. “The hospital we support is very important to Israel’s security. It serves a large cross section of Israeli society, from the wealthy to the impoverished Arabs who don’t really get served by any other institution.”

The American Friends organization has raised as much as $10 million for the hospital in some years, Lukton said.

“We’re conducting our own investigation to get a handle on the scope of the misappropriation,” Lukton said.

Until last November, Korn was a non salaried member of the state’s Hospital Review and Planning Council, an administrative body that helped to determine state policies on dealing with nursing homes.

timberland kids clothing Fly Fishing with Oliver White

timberlands shoes Fly Fishing with Oliver White

It late afternoon on our second day of fishing, and Paul Vigano is struggling. He standing in the bow of a 16 foot aluminum skiff, making errant casts with a 12 weight fly rod into Parawan Pond and berating himself. going too fast, he mutters. rushing. deep in the Guyana rain forest, on a murky pond flanked by towering vegetation, hunting a creature few anglers have ever heard of the arapaima, the world second largest freshwater fish, a leviathan that can reach 14 feet long and weigh some 400 pounds. Just as extraordinary, this fish breathes air, having evolved over 150 million years in low oxygen ponds in the jungle. Arapaimas spend their days in the benthic mud, barely moving except to chomp the occasional peacock bass and surface every few minutes for a split second gulp of air. To catch the beast, you got three seconds after that gulp known as a roll to get your fly in front of its big, ugly face. A difficult proposition.

Vigano is an accomplished fly fisherman who has landed fish from Brazil to Kamchatka. He also runs a $700 million private equity firm in Connecticut and excels at high stakes financial ass kicking. He is used to winning.

at 10 o Paul, 60 feet, heading left, announces Oliver White, our guide, from the rear of the boat. Vigano casts. He late. He short. He frustrated. He exhales through his teeth.

Paul, White says calmly. get there. sits stretched out in the stern, long and lean, one bare foot dangling in the water, pearl buttoned western shirt open to his chest. From behind a pair of wraparound shades, he exudes an easygoing confidence. Sitting next to him is an equally confident Macushi Indian named Rovin Alvin. In soft, patient voices they explain how to read the arapaima how it creates a circular ripple on the roll, how bubbles betray its direction after the roll, how its mood can be discerned by the smoothness of the roll.

It doesn show, but White very much wants Vigano to catch an arapaima, maybe more than Vigano does himself. That not just because guides want their clients to catch fish. To White, Vigano is more than a client. He part of a continuing experiment to demonstrate that catch and release fly fishing can be a vehicle for economic development and environmental conservation. It a novel idea, one more promising than many ecotourism ventures, and one that White wants to replicate around the world.

But first he needs to prove it works here in Guyana. He like that proof to look like this: Vigano catches an arapaima. He goes home and tells his deep pocketed friends he caught an arapaima. Now they want to catch an arapaima. They fly to Guyana, catch their own arapaimas, and in so doing provide thousands of dollars to the 300 Macushi who allow them to fish for arapaimas. That allows the Macushi to continue to say no to the Chinese mining and timber companies clamoring to get in here. In the end, 185 square miles of rain forest, an area eight times the size of Manhattan, get saved. Thanks to fly fishing.

at three o Paul, 50 feet, going right, White calls out. Vigano casts. He late. He short. He still frustrated.

Soon dusk settles in, and when it does, all hell breaks loose. The giant river otters that have been eyeballing us all afternoon, big six footers, suddenly start barking and snorting at us. The forest cuts loose with the roar of howler monkeys. Kingfishers start dive bombing everywhere, and then we hear shotgun blasts, or what sound like shotgun blasts arapaimas slapping their tails on the surface. good, White says. the roll is smooth, that a happy fish, a catchable fish. When they come up splashing, they agitated. They don like you in their house. jungle is mocking us. Time to call it a day.

We take skiffs down the Rewa River to our camp. On the way, White explains that when pond levels get really low, jaguars swoop out of the forest and tear the mighty arapaimas to pieces. That the way it is here, everything eating everything else. Even young jaguars need to worry about the black caimans, which can grow to 15 feet long and weigh 900 pounds. When we get back to camp, we see seven of the massive reptiles just off the bank or at least we see their glowing eyes, watching us.

White, right and Alvin wrestle a 150 pound arapaima.

Guyana sits next to Venezuela on South America Atlantic shoulder, a nation the size of Idaho and consisting largely of pristine rain forest, with about a fifth of its 800,000 citizens living in the coastal capital, Georgetown. I met White on the flight from Miami, and over the Caribbean he informed me that he forgotten his shoes. All he had were the cheap flip flops on his feet. travel so much, sometimes I forget things, he said.

White had just concluded a two week fly fishing trip in Cuba, and after our stint in Guyana he would fly straight to the Bahamas for a week of bonefishing with the singer Huey Lewis. After that he would accompany William Ackman, one of the world richest hedge fund managers, to Tierra del Fuego to cast for sea run brown trout. Following that he planned to head to the Seychelles and Tanzania with similarly well heeled clients. In a fairly rarefied sport, White has carved out a rarefied niche, and when I made the mistake of dubbing him guide to the rich and famous, he cringed. just love to fish, he insisted.

In addition to global guiding, he co owns two successful fly fishing lodges in the Bahamas, both of which served as the setting for a television series about celebrities who fish, such as Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Keaton, and Tom Brokaw. His commercial sponsorships include Costa sunglasses and Yeti coolers. He writes a monthly column about his far flung exploits for Fly Fisherman magazine, exploits that have also been documented in films and TV shows. People in the industry told me that White, 36, is fast emerging as fly fishing preeminent personality. Some suggested he is transforming the very nature of fly fishing, that in bushwhacking through places like Guyana, Tanzania, and Venezuela to hunt arapaimas, tiger fish, and vampire fish, all challenging fish to catch on fly he taking the sport in directions that might appeal to a new generation. (On our flight to Georgetown, White discussed plans to travel up the Congo River for goliath tiger fish, a fly fishing meets of Darkness type of thing requiring heavy security, negotiations with rebels, and a sizable life insurance policy.)

stuff Oliver doing is pioneering, said Kirk Deeter, editor of Trout magazine. find a species never caught on fly before, determine how to get a fly in its mouth, then figure out how to land it. And he doing this in difficult places like jungles, with the world biggest snakes, biggest spiders, things that can eat you. Ross Purnell, editor of Fly Fisherman, told me that has traditionally been perceived as involving libraries and tweed jackets a gentleman sport. Oliver wants to make it an adventure sport. is a lanky 6 foot 3, with soft, hazel eyes, a square jaw, and a ball cap that never comes off. On our flight to Georgetown, we discussed the disappearance of marshland in south Louisiana, the Buddhist view of catch and release fishing, and the export economies of various French Polynesian islands. White was extremely personable, fairly brilliant, and refreshingly low key, all of it coming with residual traces of a charming Southern accent. If you were an industry looking for a poster boy to lure a new generation, you couldn do better than Oliver White.

But the problem with casting White, so to speak, as fly fishing next big thing is that White himself questions the entire enterprise. Saddled with both an excess of humility and a philosophy degree from the University of North Carolina, he admits to engaging in near constant self reflection and criticism. chased what I want to do, he says. whole a fly fishing personality organically grew from that. Now people in the industry want me to be that guy, and it doesn feel natural. OK, I a brand. But what does that mean, exactly? Wouldn the process of ceaseless brand promotion lead to an inexorable and tragic loss of authenticity, he wonders. And couldn this, in turn, result in the loss of his very self? do I do this and stay true to what I love? he frets. telling you, man, it a semiannual existential crisis. sounded like no fishing guide I ever met.

From Georgetown, White and I flew with Vigano and four others two hours south in a Cessna Caravan to a lonely dirt runway carved out of the jungle. From there, Rovin Alvin and several other Ma accompanied us in motorized skiffs two hours up the Rupununi River to its confluence with the Rewa and the site of Alvin village, also called Rewa. We overnighted in the rustic lodge there, and then motored five hours up the Rewa River to our camp, which consisted of a few hammocks in the forest.

Along the way, White told me about Indifly, the nonprofit he started in 2014, with the Macushi arapaima project as its flagship effort. Since he began bringing clients to Guyana in 2011, a new economy has emerged for the 300 residents of Rewa, who control some 185 square miles of rain forest. Fly fishing earns them $100,000 a year, an unheard of amount for a community this far off the grid. They own the lodge, run the fishing, and retain all profits. White does not earn a dime. The community relies on Indifly counsel, and with timber companies still trying to secure leasing rights by bribing the Macushi with flashy new boats and outboard motors, the project faces challenges. But White is already trying to replicate it in other places where economically distressed communities intersect with great fly fishing. He is talking to the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes in Wyoming Wind River Range, home to excellent trout streams. He has spent time with the residents of tiny Anaa Atoll in the Pacific, a potential bonefishing mecca. He is investigating Papua New Guinea (black bass) as well as Bhutan (mahseer).

think Indifly could be the conduit for everything, White says. get to do what I want to do, go where I want to go, but the focus is off me. It about helping other people. On our third day, we motor 10 minutes downriver and then hike a half mile through the jungle, past the giant buttressed root systems of mora trees and dense curtains of strangler figs. At Simoni Pond, we find three boats waiting on the bank, courtesy of a dozen Macushi who have schlepped them through the forest for us.

We paddle out. Within minutes, a distant thunk pulses our boat. feeding, White whispers. don know of another species you can fish audibly. You can hear them 60 feet away. Then arapaimas start rolling everywhere, 10 o moving left, two o going away, 12 o heading right. It a target rich environment. But Vigano, the finance guy, continues to struggle. Finally, after two days of quietly analyzing his cast, White steps to the front of the boat. Rather than detail the myriad ways Vigano is flagging, White mentions the Cablz brand sunglasses strap dangling behind his client neck.

a great little company, he says.

product, cheap to make, and they own the patent, White says.

wouldn mind a group of accessories companies, Vigano says. He mentions that he once owned a fishing gear manufacturer. White laments that most companies in the space are overvalued and poorly run. This launches an in depth discussion of good companies, bad companies, and investment strategies.

Bit by bit, sprinkled throughout this conversation, White tweaks his stroke. He tells him not to break his wrist on the back cast. He suggests over with your thumb at the end for increased speed. By late morning Vigano is casting farther and more accurately. is all about increasing your opportunities, White explains. that and you increase your chances of closing the deal. hit, when it comes, catches Vigano off guard, the way an earthquake might flatten an unsuspecting village. There plenty he say about it tonight over drinks how the roll was 30 feet out, how the fish was coming toward us but all Vigano can manage in the moment is shit! His rod becomes a horseshoe. White and Alvin scream for him to strip his line. But in seconds the fish is gone.

White points out Vigano error: He had raised his rod to set the hook. Any angler would do this, of course; that how you catch fish. But it not how you catch arapaimas. The species is armor plated, covered in half dollar size scales that Macushi women use as nail files. The inside of its mouth is no less impenetrable. Setting the hook requires some 25 pounds of pressure, and the best way to do this, as White demonstrates, is to wedge the rod in the crook of one arm, grip the line with both hands, and pull with everything you got. Catching the great fish amounts to a mano a mano tug of war.

Later this evening at camp, White pours himself a glass of 15 year old El Dorado, a celebrated Guyanese rum, and reflects on his day. He has helped a man edge closer to achieving a bucket list dream, while simultaneously helping a people maintain their centuries old way of life. He done some fishing. He will fish again tomorrow. Now he reclining beneath a billion stars in one of the world great unspoiled wildernesses. got the best job in the world, he says.

Tying a fly before setting out

About the only thing more compelling than the dreamy facts of White immediate situation is the unlikely story of how he arrived at it. Friends credit his success to smarts, charm, thoughtfulness, and work ethic. All true. But they also talk about unbelievable timing, uncanny opportunism, and a knack for transforming personal tragedy. could fall face first into a pile of manure and pull out a diamond, says his old friend Joseph Dalton. his life. It like a movie. It like Forrest Gump. was born in Boone, North Carolina, in 1979, but he grew up mostly in rural Johnston County, 30 minutes from Raleigh, where his father was an Army officer, and his mother a preschool teacher. Their house sat in a pine forest, and Oliver and his two younger brothers spent their days running through the woods, sloshing through creeks, camping, and canoeing.

Your shoes can make or break an outfit. But for some, getting the latest kicks is a hobby, even an obsession. NY1’s Talia Kaplan filed the following report on a Flushing sneaker shop that’s making a name for itself by securing some rare kicks.

It’s a sneaker lover’s paradise. Image NY in Flushing is the borough’s only sneaker consignment shop.

“We carry stuff that, you know, you wouldn’t be able to get in Footlocker,” said sales associate Mike Lee. “We cater to the limited edition stuff, the harder to get, and we are the only store in Queens to actually carry stuff like that.”

The inventory is not ordered online, but instead brought in by customers.

“We’ll evaluate the shoe; we’ll check them out see if there are any flaws, et cetera. We look at the market value of the shoe and we will set a price for you,” said Shu Sheng, the store’s manager. And, yes,
timberland jackets Flushing Store Specializes in Rare
his name is pronounced “shoe.”

Once the shoe is sold, the store takes a percentage of the resale price, while the original owner gets the rest.

Employees say they enjoy the process of choosing which shoes to sell.

“We get interesting ones every day,” said Lee. “We don’t know who is going to come through those doors.”

Employees say there are about 5,000 pairs of sneakers here and each pair has its own history.

“Every shoe has a story like, ‘Yo I went to Footlocker and I lined up two days and I got this,’ [or] ‘Aw man, a friend of mine owes me money and he has no money so he gave me these,” said Shu.

Shu says one pair of sneakers has a unique story of its own. The extremely rare player edition sneakers are part of an unknown number in the world.

NBA star Kyrie Irving wore a pair of these sneakers during a game in Los Angeles on the night of the Grammys two years ago.

“There is other rare stuff we have here but that is probably one of the rarest we have now,” Shu said.

And sneaker enthusiasts tell employees that, for them, the rarer the better.

“You are, like, exclusive to the only few people who have that one shoe. It’s not like everyone is going to have them,

timberland bethel boots Florida State Season Preview

The third ranked ‘Noles will find out how good they are immediately in what’s being called “The Greatest College Football Opener of All Time” against top ranked Alabama Saturday night in Atlanta’s Chik fil A Kickoff Game.

And that’s just the beginning of the gauntlet.

Florida State plays five teams ranked in the Associated Press preseason top 25 poll: (1. Alabama, 5. Clemson, 16. Louisville, 17. Florida, 18. Miami).

But the Seminoles, who have won three of their last four games against ranked teams, certainly have the firepower to make it through with minimal damage to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Fisher has skill and size all over the field thanks to bringing in six consecutive top five recruiting classes.

Here is a breakdown of the ‘Noles at every position as the men in garnet and gold begin their journey toward what they hope is a fourth national title:

Redshirt sophomore Deondre Francois opened as a 12 1 favorite to win the Heisman trophy this season, and he could be one of the most improved players in the nation.

The former Olympia High School and IMG Academy standout flashed brilliance at times during his first year as the Seminoles starting quarterback, finishing with 3,350 yards with 25 total touchdowns (5 rushing) and 7 interceptions in 2016.

But Francois may have learned the most from his bad days, including going 7 18 for just 101 yards (TD, INT) in a 63 20 blowout loss to Louisville that crushed FSU’s hopes of being an elite team last season.

He has visibly become much more of a leader on the field, and the consistency he lacked as a redshirt freshman appears to be a problem of the past.

Fisher raves about his work ethic, and Francois revealed this fall that his goal during practice every day is to focus on one thing to get better at each day.

That’s a good sign for a young man with so much untapped potential.

Also promising is the fact that Francois was often at his best in crunch time as a redshirt freshman.

He threw the game winning touchdown pass with 36 seconds left to upset sixth ranked Michigan in the Orange bowl, and Francois also engineered game winning fourth quarter drives to beat 10th ranked Miami and NC State.

Francois would have had two more game winning drives against North Carolina (372 pass yards) and eventual national champion (286 pass yards, TD, INT) if the FSU defense could have finished the job for him.

It would not be surprising to see Francois top 4,000 yards passing with 40+ total touchdowns and adding to his rushing numbers. Cosentino for the backup role.

Florida State all time leading rusher Dalvin Cook obviously leaves big shoes to fill with his departure to the NFL, but few teams in the nation can boast more depth than the ‘Noles at the running back position.

Coach Fisher named junior Jacques Patrick as his starter at the beginning of fall camp and is anxious to see how he’ll perform.

The Timber Creek High School alum saw limited action playing behind the workhorse Cook (350 rush yards, 4 TD), but Fisher believes he has the potential to be great.

He’ll have to be to keep his spot, because an incredible group of freshmen will be fighting for the chance to get carries.

True freshman Cam Akers was the top ranked recruit at the position coming out of high school this past year, and many experts believe he will be the next Seminoles superstar on offense.

He’s actually the highest rated offensive recruit in Florida State’s storied history, coming off a senior season at Clinton High School in Mississippi where he ran for 2,105 yards and 34 touchdowns.

Fellow freshmen phenoms Khalan Laborn (five star) and Zaquandre White (four star) are potential gamebreakers, too, but their time to shine may have to wait until the future.

Redshirt senior Ryan Greene and sophomore Amir Rasul are listed with Akers as the backups, and both bring attributes that could give them opportunities.

Redshirt junior Johnathan Vickers will be the starting fullback after converting from tailback, and he’ll be backed up by sophomore Gabe Nabers.

Once warm temperatures set in, strappy sandals and flip flops are all we want to wear with our summer shorts and dresses. The catch? “By design, sandals have less support,” says Emily Splichal, DPM, a New York City based podiatrist. Since summery footwear doesn offer the same arch support as sneakers and cushy winter boots, we often left with weak ankles, sore heels, and tender arches by August. Ugh.

But don swear off flip flops just yet; we asked podiatrists to help us find the best ones that provide feel good features to keep your feet healthy. Here, eight pairs that offer all important arch support look cute, too.

timberland kids uk flops really bad for you

mens timberland boat shoes flops really bad for you

Shoes are designed to perform two basic functions (among other things): To provide shock absorption; and to provide a solid, stable surface that your foot can push off from, essentially providing stability. Flip flops, however, provide neither shock absorption nor stability. They are basically just covers for the bottoms of your feet.

Over the years, makers of flip flops have tried to add stability and shock absorption into them. Some of the more expensive brands come with an arch support and some come with more cushion. Yet, neither generic arch support nor increased foam provides the same support and shock absorption that a sneaker does. Without your shoe being able to perform these two main functions, you could cause yourself pain, not only in your foot but up your entire leg, into the knee, hip and back as well.

Without a proper arch and without proper ability to absorb shock, your foot is forced to move differently and the ligaments, bones and muscles in the foot are forced to work harder than they are used to. Changing something, even slightly in the foot changes how the muscles and the ligaments function in the foot and this change cannot come independently. Changing one thing affects the joint next to it,
timberland kids uk flops really bad for you
which will then affect the joint next to that. Therefore, the knee and the surrounding ligaments and muscles, must make a change in order to compensate for the changes made at the foot. This type of pattern continues up the chain to your hip and low back, making small subtle changes that might not affect you right away but can cause you problems later on or exacerbate problems that are already there. Unfortunately, these small changes will be something your body does naturally that you are not aware of so it not something that you can consciously undo.

Now, I realize that telling the average person to not wear flip flops in the summer is not a realistic statement. But, the best thing you can do for your legs and back is to wear flip lops in moderation. If you know that you are going to be sitting on the beach all day, then by all means, wear your flip flops. If you know that you are going to be standing for long periods of time, then it is probably best to leave the flip flops at home and wear sneakers and give your feet, knees, back and hips some much needed support. Walking in flip flops for long periods of time is also not advisable. However, for shorter walking periods or if you know that you are going to be sitting for a while, flip flops won cause any major damage.

Taking small steps to give your joints support will allow them to function pain free for a longer period of time. Packing the sneakers away along with the winter sweaters is not advisable for a fun, pain free summer.

timberland tops flops may ease knee arthritis pain

timberland boots for men on sale flops may ease knee arthritis pain

“In our world, we are starting to become aware that what we do in one area can affect another,” she said. “What we put into our shoes can affect how the knees work.”

The idea is a lot of force is bad for the knees. “So, if we reduce the loads, we think arthritis will progress less and people will have less pain,” said Shakoor, an associate professor at Rush Medical College. “For someone is at high risk of arthritis, reducing stress on the knee might be one way to prevent it.”

But that doesn’t mean you should go out and ask your doctor to prescribe a pair of flip flops, Shakoor said. What may be good for the knees may not be good for the feet. And flip flops put people at risk for falls and all sorts of foot problems, she said. Shakoor is slightly worried about what people may take away from the study results and says she does not want to create an open season for flip flops.

Shakoor worked on a study a few years ago that found when people walk barefoot, the load is lowest on the knee. “People were doing so well barefoot, I wondered what are shoes doing to them.”

Shakoor said she became interested in seeing how different types of shoes affects the “load,” or force put on the knees, when people walk. The amount of force relates to how fast the arthritis will progress and how much pain there will be, she said.

Shakoor and her team at Rush measured the stress on the knees of 31 osteoarthritis patients while they were wearing four different kinds of shoes flexible soled sneakers, flip flops, clogs and a stability shoe as well as while they were barefoot. The force on the knees was 15 percent higher with the clogs and stability shoes, she found. There was no real difference between the sneakers, flip flops and bare feet. The results of her study were published online in the journal Arthritis Care Research. Shakoor is now working on a long term study that is looking at the impact of a shoe she designed on knee loads.

Shakoor admitted that her theory is counterintuitive. “We intuitively think that supportive, cushioned shoes are great, like shock absorbers for the feet,” she said. But when people put on supportive thick soled shoes, they lose the natural movement of the feet. “You’re stomping instead of naturally and gracefully putting your feet on the ground.”

Dr. Patience White, the chief health officer for the Arthritis Foundation, said Shakoor’s theory is interesting, but said it’s still too early to say that everyone with arthritis of the knees should wear soft soled shoes. She called the study a takeoff point for more work on the effect of shoes on arthritis. It makes a certain amount of sense, she said.

“The closer you are to the ground and the softer the sole is is closer to what nature meant you to be,” said White, a professor of medicine and pediatrics at George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences. “But it’s a leap of faith to say that the particular loading force measured affects arthritis.”

White said that people with arthritis should speak to their doctor before changing their footwear.

A longtime volleyball player and coach, Beatrice Jirasek said she used to take painkillers before games to enable her to play through her pain from her arthritis. “Sometimes it would get so bad my knees would collapse underneath me,” said Jirasek, a 57 year old Oak Park resident who is participating in Shakoor’s shoe study. Wearing flexible soled shoes has reduced her pain and given her mobility, she said.

kids timberland shoes flop Etiquette

timberland bomber jacket flop Etiquette

Flip flops rule the fashion world it seems. The craze has reached such massive proportions that society has lost sight of what constitutes proper attire. Perhaps a code needs to be implemented to help us use discernment when considering wearing flip flops to funerals, weddings, (other than those on the beach), fancy art galleries, with a suit or elegant dress, or to work at a professional setting.

The trend of allowing casual attire in the work place often includes permitting open toed shoes. Some debate spawns from this dress code issue as to the appropriateness of certain sandals and flip flops. While peep toe, and tasteful open toe pumps still look professional, flip flops rarely fit into an office setting. What used to be a flavor of very casual shoes intended for the beach, or pool, has become an unfortunate and over used fashion statement. Employers often do not like to see employees sporting these, but won’t enforce a change as the differentiation between open toe shoes and flip flops isn’t clearly defined in the dress code.

Don’ t misunderstand, I own several pairs myself, but I also frequent the beach. You won’t see me wearing them to my office where I meet with clients, and I certainly will not commit the fashion faux pas of pairing them with a classy dress. I was shocked to see that very thing in a local government office. Perhaps laziness drives this trend, or maybe just the pure lack of etiquette.

Consider if you would feel comfortable with your doctor performing your exam or delivering your baby wearing flip flops. Many of us would feel awkward at best. I guess maybe I personally don’t consider them my first choice of attire when wanting to be taken seriously. When I need to look professional, or if I need show respect like at a funeral or military ceremony, I pick a more conservative pair of shoes.

Flip flops certainly show off the fresh pedicure, or wild polish choice but they aren’t always flattering in comparison with the multitude of other open toe options. Cute, tasteful sandals and open toe heels flamboyantly grace shoe departments everywhere. Of course, flip flops have graduated from just being rubber soled colored wonders. Embellished with sequins, flowers, and bows, and showing in every color of the rainbow, they have become a definate fashion statement. I own a fancy pair of zebra ‘flops’, and several pairs with wedge heels myself. So many bright and colorful choices make them hard to resist!

The key to good etiquette when choosing footwear is to consider the function. Look at your other choices of shoe attire, and determine what suits the occasion. Don’t forget to be respectful through your attire. If dress pants, or elegant dresses are expected, then save those fun flip flops for a more casual outing.

Traffic was blocked in both directions between exits 17 to 22 in Robeson County. In Cumberland County, lanes are closed between exits 40 and 55. Farther north, the interstate was closed between exits 77 and 87 in Harnett and Johnston counties.

“Hurricane Floyd was a great flashback for us,” said Mayor Pro Tem Lynda Joyner. “That’s the reason why we have a sense of urgency.”

Joyner said residents should prepare to be out of their homes for two or three days. The town was running buses into the early evening from Southern Terrace, Princeville Town Hall, Pioneer Courts,

St. Luke Church, Downs Town and Lone Pine to transport those who needed help.

Tarboro High School and Martin Millennium Academy opened as shelters Sunday night for people evacuating. The county manager said officials are fairly confident the dike holding the Tar River will do its job, but the mandatory evacuation was a precaution because residents have seen the devastating effects of flooding during Hurricane Floyd.

Frank Redwine was pushing one of his family cars from his Walton Street driveway in the dark Sunday night. It was the last thing on his to do list before leaving for several days.

“We got clothes and shoes and little other material stuff out of the house and we did what we can to get everything out,” Redwine said.

Some in Tarboro believed that county or city leaders would go upstream and open a gate to let water out of the reservoir but the county manager said that is not true. The dam has an automatic release system and that has already been factored in when he talks about the water cresting.

“I just thank God that we are somewhere safe,” said Marva Scott.

The popular Bill’s BBQ restaurant in Wilson was surrounded by water when the nearby Wiggins Mill Reservoir breached its banks. Owner Bill Ellis told WRAL News after Hurricane Floyd that he didn’t plan to relocate because he believed that was a once in a century event.

Greenville residents north of the Tar River and south of Belvoir Road and those south of the Tar River between Pitt Street and Brownlea Drive as well as the Riverwalk and Dockside neighborhoods were also urged to leave, and to anticipate being away from home for up to a week.

Public school systems in Sampson, Wilson, Wayne and Edgecombe counties and the Nash Rocky Mount public schools canceled classes for Monday. Wayne County and Johnston County schools will remain closed through Tuesday.

Dow: / NASDAQ: / S 500:Quiz: How well do you know your guns?HOUSTON (AP) Runners and bikers returning to Buffalo Bayou Park in the wake of Hurricane Harvey are finding a vastly different landscape more desert than prairie, blanketed with untold tons of sandy sediment.The Houston Chronicle reports it a yin yang landscape: Along the water edge, the park looks like an eerie, otherworldly beach, with trees where they aren supposed to be. Higher up, many plants look lush, even refreshed.For the third time since it opened in 2015, Houston 160 acre central park a $57 million jewel of urban redevelopment is grappling with the fallout of flooding. The silt, this time, is dramatic.never seen sediment like this, said Anne Olson, president of the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, which manages and maintains the park.The flooding deposited deep drifts of sediment throughout the park, settling most heavily in the wide open, natural areas called benches that were designed for that purpose, such as the large area just east of the Shepherd Street bridge, where the landscape architects kept tree plantings to a minimum. That means the bayou curvy redesign is working the way it supposed to.Such features are increasingly important to the design of parks across the country. Katharine Burgess, senior director of the Urban Resilience Program at the Urban Land Institute, said cities are looking to invest in flood infrastructure that improves quality of life during normal times and increases preparedness for extreme events. Planners in coastal areas like Miami Dade County and Norfolk, Virginia, have recently discussed parks, she said.Buffalo Bayou Park has been a national model for resilience, surviving the Memorial Day Flood of 2015 and the Tax Day Flood of 2016 before Harvey.Buffalo Bayou crested at nearly 39 feet during Harvey. Olson expects the water to remain high for weeks, as releases continue from the Addicks and Barker dams upstream.While all of the park infrastructure is designed to withstand flooding, such prolonged submersion puts banks, trees and footpaths to an extreme test.Some people recently walking along the park paths ignored closure signs for the park low lying asphalt trails, entering a treacherous territory of still swiftly flowing water, eroded banks and deep, slippery silt. At the very least, they emerged with muddy shoes.Travis Tyrone Tyson of Katy and his friend Keiory Milton Smith of Cypress ventured too far on the Tapley Tributary Trail on their fancy skateboards.my beautiful wheels, Tyson lamented, as they turned around from the compromised paths.Touring the park with Guy Hagstette, the director of parks and civic projects for the Kinder Foundation, Olson was pleasantly surprised to find that the 4.6 miles of asphalt footpaths appear to have held up well, with a few major problem areas where they disappeared. She won know the real extent of the damage until sediment has been removed.

I was startled to return after a weekend away this spring to a few feet of water creating a moat between our dock and lawn. Being new, I did the sensible thing and called the neighbours to see if Pinantan Lake traditionally rose so quickly and just how high it would go. They assured it was seasonal and nothing to worry about. I’ve since learned the lake also creeps up during heavy rains like those of recent weeks. As our house is on higher ground away from the water, we have no realistic worries of flooding, but it got me thinking what a mess it could have made. Some have packed precious items to take on short notice, they’re moving furniture out of basements, constructing walls of sandbags and putting sump pumps into play to stave off the rising water. Others resorted to more drastic measures canoeing in groceries or full out evacuations. Astonishingly, the only recourse for victims of such flooding is to apply for financial assistance from the Provincial Emergency Program, which only covers 80 per cent of “eligible damage” up to amounts of $300,000. While insurance policies exist to cover flooding from a sewer or septic backing up, if the water pouring into your house comes from overland flooding, you’re out of luck. Confusingly, natural disasters such as forest fires and windstorms can be covered by homeowner insurance, ICBC looks after vehicles caught in floods and groundwater flood insurance can be purchased for commercial buildings. But there’s nothing that offers Canadians home flood protection. This lack of coverage surprises many when disaster strikes; a 2004 survey of 2,100 people by the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) found 70 per cent of homeowners thought they were covered for such flooding. In a 2010 analysis, the ICLR found such flood coverage could be made available in Canada by bundling it into home insurance policies with other perils like fire and theft, thus making it affordable to many. It does point out that homes in high risk flood areas might be uninsurable, but this exclusion could work to discourage people from building in problematic areas.

timberland earthkeeper 6 inch boots Flipkart completes buyback of ESOPs worth

Over 3,000 current and former employees of Flipkart, Myntra, Jabong and PhonePe participated in it.

India’s largest e commerce marketplace Flipkart on Wednesday said it has completed the $100 million buyback of employee stock options (ESOPs), making it the largest share buyback programme by an unlisted company in the country.

The programme allowed over 3,000 current and former employees of Flipkart as well as subsidiaries Myntra, Jabong and PhonePe to sell a percentage of their stock options. This is the fourth and largest share buyback Flipkart has done in the past five years.

“Employees are our biggest source of strength, without whom Flipkart couldn’t have built the e commerce industry in India. As an organisation, we believe they should be equal partners in Flipkart’s success. This ESOP repurchase programme is an extension of that culture, and a token of thanks for the dedication and hard work they have put in over the years,” said Sachin Bansal, Chairman of Flipkart, and Binny Bansal, Group CEO, in a statement.

The call for buying back shares came soon after Flipkart raised $2.5 billion from Japanese investor Softbank in August which had agreed to buy shares from existing investors in the company. Late last month, Softbank had reached out to other investors in Flipkart to buy their stock at a valuation of $9 10 billion.

Softbank has committed to invest $1.2 1.4 billion in purchasing shares in Flipkart on the secondary market, people in the know have told Business Standard. Apart from employees, investors such as Tiger Global and Accel Partners are expected to cash in, as Softbank looks to increase its shareholding in India’s only competitor to US online retail giant Amazon.

Flipkart would buy back shares at a cost of $85.2 per share with a transaction fee of around $3 4 according to news reports in October. Current employees would be able to sell up to 25 percent of their stock options while former employees would be allowed to liquidate only 10 percent of their holdings.

Flipkart says the share buybacks are a way for it to share some of its success with employees. It has wanted to be seen as a company that goes out of its ways to protect employee interests. In April, after the company raised $1.4 billion from Tencent, eBay and Microsoft at a valuation of $11.6 billion (down from a peak of 15.2 billion), Flipkart said it would compensate all eligible employees with additional shares to make up the difference.

“It is not common practice to shield employees from a funding round that values a company lower than it was valued at earlier. That privilege is usually reserved for investors,” Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal had said in a joint statement at the time.

Should a certain type of dress be expected for special occasions? Should a person be required to dress a particular way when an event is considered formal or semiformal?

What would you wear on a visit to the White House?

I don’t know when the tradition started, or which President started it. Honoring champions at the White House makes for a nice photo op and allows the athletes and coaches to receive recognition for a job well done.

However, a recent visit has raised the eyebrows of some.

The Northwestern University Women’s Lacrosse Team won the 2005 NCAA Division I Lacrosse Championships. Subsequently, they were invited to the White House to meet President George W. Bush and be honored for their achievement.

According to all reports, everything went well. Everyone had a great time, and the athletes and coaches were given an experience they would never forget.

As in any event, the participants stood for a photo. President Bush was in the middle of the group, surrounded by these fine, young women and their coaches.

The photo was sent out over the wire services, and that is when the questions started.

It seems that some of the young ladies chose to wear flip flops.

None of the ladies seemed to be dressed inappropriately. They all wore nice dresses, blouses and skirts, or pants and shirts.

The question that has been brought up and been asked by many; are flip flops acceptable footwear for a formal visit to the White House?

Do shoes really matter? Does an occasion dictate your selection of footwear? I would have to say that it does. I feel that certain events dictate the selection of footwear.

Would a man wear running shoes to his wedding? Would a woman wear house shoes to the opera? Would a person wear flip flops to a job interview with any major corporation?

The answer to all three of the above questions is a resounding “no.”

In today’s society, many things are just brushed off as unimportant. It is obvious to me that this issue does not rank up there with the War on Terror or the cost of a gallon on gas.

What it does bring to mind is what is acceptable in today’s society. Some have stated that flip flops are acceptable footwear for today’s youth. They view flip flops as comfortable, stylish, and as a fashion statement of their generation.

One of they young ladies was quoted in saying that the flip flops that were worn were not the cheap kind. They were brown, decorated with sequins and had a cost of about sixteen dollars.

All of this really doesn’t matter. The offending young ladies should have made a better choice of footwear. The coaching staff should have insured that the ladies were properly dressed. The university should have a dress code for athletes when they are representing their school.

I know many athletic teams, whether they are professional, college, high school or club, have dress and attire requirements when they are representing their organization.

I know of a long time high school swimming coach, who has coached swimmers at every level from novice to national champion. She always has a dress code for her athletes, be it at practice, competition, or travel.

She would tell her athletes they represented four entities: their coach, their team or school, their parents, and themselves.

Society has placed an unwise idea in the youth of today. Allowing them to believe that people shouldn’t judge them on their appearance and that they have the right to self expression with their choice of dress, will do more to hurt them in society then they will benefit.

People are judged on their appearance. Even if it is something as simple as wearing flip flops to the White House, people do judge you.

In reaction to the furor, some of the young ladies have said they will donate their flip flops to the White House, to be auctioned off to benefit a young fan who has brain cancer,

Whether they came to their senses about their inappropriate choice of footwear or are trying to make an unfortunate situation better is unclear. What is clear is they have thought about the issue and are trying to rectify the situation.

Perhaps the university’s athletic department will enact a policy concerning appropriate dress for their athletics teams.

Perhaps the coaches of these young women will enact a team policy concerning appropriate dress for their athletes and coaches.
