nike air jordan xxxiii: the $175 self-lacing shoe
the release of back to the future ii in 1989 left many moviegoers lusting after the self-lacing nike mag trainers that marty mcfly wears to hop on his hover board. now the dream is about to become a reality.although we’re still some years away from floating skateboards, the self-lacing sneakers have arrived in the form of nike’s air jordan xxxiii trainers. the futuristic-looking new shoes are equipped with the firm’s fastfit self-lacing technology, which is activated by pulling a thin elastic cord just above the shoe’s tongue. this tightens a series of elastic cables inside the trainer, allowing it to tightly grip the wearer’s foot. to untie the laces, the wearer simply pulls a small yellow cord located next to the tongue.air jordan designer tate kuerbis says: “we were inspired by how spacesuits look and function. it's all very utilitarian, and the various elements and what they do are all clearly called out.see related time to pick up these six great smartwatches“thinking about this led us to highlight the pull cord, eject cord and the inner workings of fastfit, and make the function integral to the aesthetic and graphic integrity of the design.”the new nikes don’t feature quite the same hi-tech system as that envisioned in back to the future ii, says engadget. there are no electronic motors pulling the laces around the wearer’s foot - or glowing nike logos.that said, using a series of elastic cords “makes more sense than adding anything motorised?...

could labour win back power by backing new brexit vote?
labour could win enough extra votes to bring it to the brink of general election victory by backing a second referendum on brexit, according to new polling data.see related salzburg summit ends: what happens next?is labour facing an imminent split?half of those quizzed by yougov for research commissioned by the people’s vote campaign regarded brexit as the single most important issue facing mps.of the total 5,122 respondents, most of whom were remain supporters at the 2016 referendum, “26% said there would be more likely to vote labour if jeremy corbyn’s party supported a public vote on the outcome of the brexit talks”, reports the london evening standard.that equates to an average of 2,400 voters per seat, and more than 1.5 million in total.former yougov president peter kellner, who analysed the data, said that while some labour mps argue that backing a second referendum could cost the party net votes, the poll figures do not bear this out.he said: “of the respondents who currently support labour and voted leave in the referendum, only 6% put brexit at the top of their concerns and say they would not, or be less likely to, vote labour if the party backed a popular vote. this is just 2% of all labour supporters, or just over 200,000 voters in all.“in other words, the non-labour voters that the party could win over outnumber the labour voters that the party risks losing by almost nine to one.”labour’s official policy on a second brexit referendum is to not c...

why has amazon made an alexa-powered microwave?

greek town covered in spider webs
a greek beach has been turned into an arachnophobe’s worst nightmare, as hoards of spiders weave thousands of cobwebs all along the shoreline. newsweek reports that “warm temperatures and an abundance of food” has prompted an “explosion in the spider population” in the western town of aitoliko, where their webs now cover an area stretching 300 metres.maria chatzaki, a biology professor at greece’s democritus university of thrace, says the creepy-crawlies appear to belong to the genus tetragnatha, commonly known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies.“these spiders are not dangerous for humans and will not cause any damage to the area’s flora,” she told greek-language news site newsit.gr. “the spiders will have their party and will soon die.”local resident giannis giannakopoulos told cnn that he first noticed the “veil of webs” earlier this week and took photos.“it’s natural for this area to have insects, no one is especially worried,” he said. “but i have never seen any spider webs this big in my life.”biologist fotis pergantis, president of the region’s messolonghi national lagoon park, says the warm weather has led to an increase in the presence of gnats, on which the spiders feed.“when these temperatures last long enough, we can see a second, third and fourth generation of the gnats and end up with large amounts of their populations,” he said.“it’s the simple prey-predator phenomenon. it’s the ecosystem’s nat...

speed bump damage costing one in five drivers: can you claim compensation?
more than a fifth of drivers in britain have had to pay out to repair damage to their car caused by driving over a speed bump, a new study has found. see related mot test 2018: new rules come into effect - what’s changed?road tax 2018: vehicles rates and how to get a refundthe poll of 2,000 drivers revealed that almost half of the car damage was tyre related, while suspension problems accounted for 33% of repairs. the average repair bill was £141. a total of 22% of the respondents claimed to have suffered car damage after driving over one or more of the uk’s 29,000 speed bumps, reports auto express. the research, by comparison site confused.com, also found that 41% of motorists believe speed bumps cause “too much” damage to cars, the motoring magazine adds. and 27% believe they are “ineffective” as a speed-limiting measure. indeed, one in eight motorists admit to not slowing down for the bumps, and 21% avoid roads that have them, the sun says.confused.com motoring editor amanda stretton suggests that improving the visibility of speed bumps might help prevent motorists from driving over them too quickly.“perhaps markings on speed humps could be made clearer to avoid any bumpy surprises,” she says.can you claim compensation?yes, but it isn’t easy. claiming compensation can be a tricky process as speed bumps are a deliberate measure used by councils to slow vehicles, rather than a “road defect”.  “unlike potholes, which are defects in the road...

villa fontelunga hotel review: a thoroughly tuscan hideaway
tuscany. it’s a truly evocative word, isn’t it? whether you’re a native, a regular visitor or have only seen it used in rom-coms as visual shorthand for romantic perfection, tuscany is a word that brings to mind all sorts of general loveliness, from rolling hills to stunning architecture, and works of art to pastoral joys, via, in my case, exquisite glasses of chianti, scoops of pistachio gelato, piles of pecorino-dusted pici and slabs of bistecca alla fiorentina.having honeymooned in florence – yeah, go on, “aaah” if you must – i’ve got a distinct soft spot for the place (and not just the one around the midriff thanks to the chianti, gelato, etc). there is genuinely something magical to the region and, in a quiet corner of the arezzo province, in a small town called foiano della chiana it all comes together in one utterly charming property, villa fontelunga.for those drawn to this part of italy by under the tuscan sun, the setting for that film – cortona – is visible from fontelunga. that’s probably the best place for it, in fact: close enough to serve as a reminder why you’re there, but far enough away to encourage your own adventure.although, to be fair, adventure might be pushing it. fontelunga isn’t really about the rugged agricultural experience, it’s all about the downtime and the wonderful hospitality of owners paolo and philip – and the very pleasant (but optional) company of their small, unfeasibly cute dogs.the property ??...
