Todd Snyder Raises the Bar With His Revamp of Liquor Store Space

NEW YORK — The Liquor Store will always hold a special place in Todd Snyder’s heart. And now, it’ll finally have his name on the storefront. Snyder was the senior vice president of men’s wear for J. Crew when he transformed the aging storefront of a former liquor store in a landmark building in TriBeCa in 2008 into a stand-alone men’s shop. The store’s heritage-heavy clubby interior not only catapulted J. Crew into the spotlight for its men’s collection — including its poplar Ludlow suit that was introduced at the store — but it also helped put Snyder on the map. A year after it opened, the designer resigned from J. Crew to create his own label. And while he’s found success with the Todd Snyder brand, he’s never forgotten his experience at the Liquor Store. Snyder said he first heard the store had closed over the winter when a friend walked by the location and texted him the “For Rent” sign in the window. “I called the number on the sign and went to Westchester to have breakfast with the owner,” he said, adding that the building from 1809 has been in the same family for three generations. “It’s her baby, but when

Selfridges Unveils New Generation Office Space

NEW HUB: After a long and ambitious renovation project of its accessories and men’s wear departments, Selfridges is now applying its flair for creative architecture and experiences to its executive, buying and merchandising offices, located on Duke Street, next to its London store. For the refurbishment project, the British retailer appointed architect Alex Cochrane, a longtime collaborator, to transform the department store’s 19,700-square-foot head office — a process that took up to two years to complete. The aim was to create a more creative and collaborative workspace environment, as well as incorporate sustainable design elements. Cue pink glass telephone booths, bright red box seats in a dedicated table tennis area and glossy green or magenta shelves. The space also features materials such as renewable wood paneling and solar panels to further the retailer’s commitment to sustainability. Earlier this year, the retailer also announced plans to ban exotic skins from its store as part of its sustainability efforts. It’s also ditching assigned work spaces in favor of open-plan workrooms in its buying and merchandizing area — dubbed the Hub — in a bid to be more aligned to the nomadic nature of the buying team’s busy travel schedule. The company added that everything within the space,

On the Moon Landing and Space Travel

Before cell phones, before texting and TV that streams, the world had a mass date with its television sets. On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 blasted off from Cape Canaveral, and four days later, Neil Armstrong took that mind-blowing giant leap for mankind with the feisty Buzz Aldrin right behind. Fifty years later, the notion still awes.
When WWD asked fashion folks their thoughts on the anniversary and whether they’d like to venture into space, the answers were broad. Some designers watched and remember. Ralph and Ricky tuned in during dinner at the Hotel Cala di Volpe in Sardinia; Vera, in the bar of an inn in the French Pyrenees where she trained with the French Olympic figure skating team. DVF remembers the event well; she married Egon on the day of lift-off and watched the landing on their honeymoon, on a “very bad TV,” while sailing the fjords of Norway.
For many more, the moon landing was an historic event they may have learned about at school or from parents or grandparents. It fascinates still. Christian Siriano and Julie Alkire marveled that it was a moment when all Americans came together (imagine that). For others, the anniversary brings thoughts of home.

Tavares Strachan Brings Space Bombers to Paris With CIFF

SPACE MAN: Tavares Strachan is getting into fashion. The Bahamian artist has created a capsule collection and installation of six bomber jackets showing in Paris.
“I never thought I’d be producing something that people would wear,” said Strachan at a preview of the installation at the Crillon. “I don’t see this as fashion to me, this is sculpture.”
Branded under the name B.A.S.E.C., for the Bahamian Aerospace and Sea Exploration Center Strachan created after undertaking cosmonaut training a few years ago, the project is staged by edgy trade fair CIFF under the tagline “The Northwind Trilogy.”
Curated by Neville Wakefield, the three-part project was unveiled at Art Basel Miami in December before hitting Paris and will head to CIFF in Copenhagen at the end of the month.
The jackets were created in collaboration with the artist’s mother, and have a social as well as commercial ambition. Crafted by local women, money raised from their sale will be used to fund training initiatives for women in the island nation and inject resources into boosting local production.
Fewer than 600 jackets will be produced in total, and they will be offered to select retailers worldwide that can support the installation concept. They will sell for around $ 2,000

Ampersand Collective Brings Online Men’s Brands Into Retail Space

Some digitally native men’s brands have come together in a brick-and-mortar play for the holiday season.
Called Ampersand Collective, the 10-day pop-up on New York’s Lower East Side will feature gifts for guys from Stuart & Lau​​, a luggage and accessories brand; men’s outerwear from North & Mark​​; dress shoes from ​Wolf & Shepherd​​; ​hats and other haberdashery items from BM Franklin​​; grooming products from ​Fulton & Roark; timepieces from ​The 5th​​; socks and underwear from ​Nice Laundry​, and bikes from Tokyobike.
The idea for the shop was hatched by Stuart & Lau and North & Mark as a way to bring their brands to a different audience.

“I am proud to have brought together some of the best emerging men’s and gear brands together for this short-term residency,” said Matt Stuart, founder of Stuart & Lau. “As mostly digital native brands, this pop-up brings us off-line ​and offers the opportunity to showcase the brands in a physical location.”

Sarah Brightman Returns from Space Training for New Album and Tour: ‘I Needed to Earth Myself’

Sarah Brightman is making an astronomical landing with her fifteenth studio album Hymn.

After spending months in Russia training for a trip to outer space that she postponed in 2015, Brightman, 58, opened up to PEOPLE exclusively about the creation of her newest album and the planning stages of her tour.

“I needed to earth myself,” says the soprano singer. “I said I would like to do an album of songs which are full of light, full of hope. Songs that remind me of when I felt safe and familiar with things in my childhood when I sang in my church.”

“If I don’t use and I don’t convey my feelings through it, I feel depleted,” she added. “I don’t function very well and that’s the beauty of having a gift like a voice. You sort of know what to do. You know what direction to take, you know that you want to communicate through it.”

Brightman, who shot to fame after star-turning roles on Broadway musicals Cats and Phantom of the Opera, linked up with producer Frank Peterson for the album-creating process. What came out of two-and-a-half years of planning and recording was the dynamic, choir-filled album, Hymn, out on Nov. 9.

“ is about looking into the good in things because I do believe that good prevails always,” she said, adding that the word “positivity” would describe her album.

“I did experience huge amounts when I was in the space program that actually how precious everything really is on this beautiful planet and how precious that is,” she added.

Now, the “Time to Say Goodbye” vocalist is ready to take Hymn on the road later this fall for a tour that’s “going to be quite beautiful.”

“I have a lot of energy. I tend to before I go on these tours, I become more energetic,” she says. “You create a power for yourself which will protect you because when you go on tour you’re dealing with the hardship of jet lag and moving around continually.”

The “Angel of Music” singer says her set on tour will be divided into two halves. The first will feature a more retrospective aspect to Brightman’s music, which will look like “somebody who is going to the ballet or the opera.” The second will be a bit more modern and feature most of the songs off Hymn.

“I’m wearing all these amazing runway gowns, which I’ve made a little more theatrical by adding things to them. Stones, crystals, all sorts of stuff,” she says. “I’ve got a big choir behind me. Up really high. I’ve got an orchestra on one side, a band on the other side and myself in the middle.”

Brightman’s album is filled with collaborations with artists like French tenor Vincent Niclo on single “Sogni” and Japanese composer Yoshiki on the emotional “Miracle.”

“ is a really interesting guy and we got along very well,” she said. “It was a very interesting collaboration with Japan’s most famous rockstar writing a beautiful contemporary classical piece.”

Along with the collaborations, Brightman’s album jumps from classical and cinematic music to pop rhythms in a cohesive album threaded by its spiritual nature. The album also takes fans back to one of her most famous classics “Time to Say Goodbye” with Andrea Bocelli, which she recreates in a touching English rendition.

“I wrote the lyrics for it but they were very much inspired from the original Italian lyrics when translated,” she said. “It’s quite a grand song, it’s almost like an opera song, but I wanted to do this in a very intimate way.”

Fans can purchase tickets for “Hymn: Sarah Brightman in Concert” through her website.

Rowing Blazers to Open Shop in Former Odin Space

Rowing Blazers is going the retail route.
The preppy brand of vintage-inspired sport coats, button-down shirts and ties will open a 2,500-square-foot store at 221 Centre Street in Manhattan on June 15. The space formerly housed the Odin store.
Rowing Blazers was created last year by Jack Carlson, a former coxswain on the U.S. national rowing team who also holds a Ph.D. in archaeology from Oxford University (a center of rowing worldwide), and is the author of “A Humorous Guide to Heraldry” and “Rowing Blazers,” a coffee-table tome about the “authentic striped, piped, trimmed and badged” jackets worn by oarsman around the world.
Since its debut, the collection of boldly patterned and brightly colored jackets has caught the attention of Millennial customers, and the brand had a successful partnership with J. Crew on a limited-edition capsule of rugby shirts.
In addition, a pop-up that the brand operated on Rivington Street last fall was so successful Carlson believes it’s the right time to take a bigger plunge into the brick-and-mortar world.
“When we started, the idea was to be e-commerce exclusively and maybe add wholesale selectively,” he said. Rowing Blazers does wholesale its line to Asian retailers Beams, United Arrows, Journal Standard and others.

Selfridges Probes Time, Space and the Senses With The Flipside

FLIPPING OUT: Selfridges’ Radical Luxury campaign is moving forward with a multisensory exhibition called The Flipside, which opens Thursday and features conceptual creations from names including Google Pixel 2, Louis Vuitton and the mixology expert Mr Lyan.
The free-of-charge show is being held at the Old Selfridges Hotel, near the Oxford Street store, and runs through May 20. Selfridges asked the seven brands taking part (they also include Loewe, Thom Browne New York, Gareth Pugh and Byredo) to pinpoint what true luxury is right now, or will be in the future.
The brands responded with installations that were thought-provoking: Loewe gathered piles of old, discarded household appliances and placed them next to lush sprouting plants. “The future is green,” says Loewe. Gareth Pugh responded with an arty film of him and his mother taking a meditative walk on a blustery beach in northeastern England. The aim was to create a space “where time dilates, prompting an awareness of being.”
Louis Vuitton focused on travel and luxury as an experience, and created a series of small islands, some like deserts, others like underwater gardens. Mr Lyan, the celebrity bartender whose real name is Ryan Chetiyawardana, will be mixing one-off cocktails for visitors, based on a

Karl Lagerfeld Interviews French Astronaut in Space

ROCKET MAN: Karl Lagerfeld has revealed the real inspiration behind his space-themed show for Chanel in March: French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who has kept the nation in thrall with his regular reports from the International Space Station since November.
The designer hooked up with the cosmonaut for a remote interview broadcast on French radio France Info on Saturday, in which he asked him everything from what he eats, how he washes and how often he works out.
“I admire [him]. In fact, he has even inspired fashion since I was indirectly inspired not only by where he is, but also by his personality, because I think he is more charismatic than his predecessors,” Lagerfeld said.
The designer installed a giant rocket 35 meters (115 feet) high inside the Grand Palais in Paris for his spectacular fall ready-to-wear display.
“I am very flattered that Karl Lagerfeld draws inspiration from space for his collections,” Pesquet said. “Thankfully he did not draw inspiration from astronauts’ outfits, because obviously here, we tend to wear European Space Agency polo shirts and pants with Velcro fastenings, which is not that great.
“But it’s good. It means space makes people dream, that people are interested in exploration and science, and that’s a

Chanel Backs Permanent Exhibition Space at Palais Galliera

GOING FULL-TIME: Chanel is backing the creation of a space for permanent exhibitions at the Palais Galliera – a first for the Paris City Hall-backed fashion museum.
The brand will be the exclusive sponsor of the new space, set to open in 2019, contributing to finance renovation works estimated at a total of 5.7 million euros, or $ 6 million at current exchange.
The project is part of Paris City Hall’s drive to enhance the City of Light’s reputation as the “capital of fashion,” and will showcase the city’s fashion heritage.
“Thanks to this prestigious backing, our capital will soon be home to France’s first permanent fashion museum,” said Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.
“This initiative represents a lasting commitment to creation and to the strength of Paris, which are at the heart of Chanel’s business,” stated Chanel fashion president Bruno Pavlovsky.
While the Galliera owns an extensive collection of more than 200,000 articles from fashion history, it has never put them on permanent display.
The new exhibition halls, to be created in the museum’s basement, will be open to the public all year round and showcase the history of fashion from the 18th century to the present. The 7,200 square-foot-space will carry the name “Gabrielle Chanel Rooms” in recognition

How A Hijab-Friendly Brooklyn Salon Became A Space For Women’s Empowerment

Muslim cosmetologist Huda Quhshi used to lug her supplies around New York City, cutting and coloring women’s hair over sinks in crowded apartments. 

But Quhshi’s days of itinerant hairstyling are over. Last month, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bay Ridge, the 37-year-old realized her lifelong dream of opening a salon that caters entirely to women. Her salon, Le’Jemalik, has become a kind of sanctuary for women who want to let their hair down in a ladies-only space.

“It’s a place where you can come and feel relaxed, and just have a beautiful experience without worrying that a man is going to walk in,” Quhshi told The Huffington Post.

Le’Jemalik, which means “for your beauty” in Arabic, offers a full range of services, from hairstyling to nails, waxing and makeup. It even sells wedding dresses and offers regular seminars for beauty professionals looking to enhance their skills.

The salon hosted its grand opening on Jan. 29, with hundreds of visitors stopping by to glimpse the space, Quhshi said. It had already attracted a fair amount of media attention, not only as a business run by and for women but as a place where Muslim women, in particular, can feel safe and welcome.

Not all Muslim women cover their hair or wear hijabs. But those who do maintain a commitment to covering in front of men to whom they aren’t related. It’s a tradition upheld by some Orthodox Jewish women, as well.

Some salons have dividers or rooms in the back to accommodate women with these religious requirements. But Quhshi said she wasn’t aware of any other salons in New York City where the entire space is a men-free zone.

Men are allowed in the front waiting area of Le’Jemalik, but the actual service area lies behind a double door that only women may pass through. 

Quhshi said the salon has attracted many Muslim and Jewish clients since it opened. But she emphasized that “this space is for all women.”

“I’ve had women from other faiths tell me that they’re so excited about this space, even though they’re not Muslim,” she said. “They’re happy to be able to support a woman-run business and come here just because they want to feel comfortable.”

As a hijab-wearing Muslim woman of Yemeni descent, Quhshi said she hopes she can be an inspiration to other women who may have to overcome bias to achieve their goals. 

“I want to help other girls follow their dreams,” she said. “I’m definitely happy to empower other women and make other women feel like I’ve opened doors for them.”

4 Ways To Make Space In Your Brain To Create

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com


This is the second article in Quiet Revolution’s two-part series on seeking creativity. Check out last week’s piece to learn about the ways you can hack your environment to help you channel your creativity more effectively.

We’d enjoy nothing new without creativity. For extroverts, new ideas can come from external stimulation: collaborating with cross-disciplinary teams within the workplace, jamming with artistic friends, or attending group classes or meetups. Introverts, though, usually hit their creative peak in lower-stimulation environments.

In today’s over-stimulated world, this means introverts often have to work to carve out time for themselves. Sure, many on the quieter end of the spectrum also gain inspiration from the outside world, but then they need time for the ideas they’ve collected to incubate.

Whether you have 20 minutes a day or an entire weekend, use the four strategies below to make space in your brain so you can be open to anything.

1. Julia Cameron’s morning pages

In her internationally bestselling book The Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron shares her number one tool for creativity—an activity she calls morning pages.

They “are three pages of longhand writing, strictly stream-of-consciousness.

‘Oh god, another morning. I have NOTHING to say. I need to wash the curtains. Did I get my laundry yesterday? Blah, blah, blah…’”

The important thing is to do them every day. By writing out everything that’s on your mind, everything that you’re worried about or distracted by, you’re actually performing an act of creative recovery. Morning pages allow you to get out of your own way, release the pressures and negativity of daily demands out of your brain, and move past your internal critic, or “Censor” as Cameron names it.

Creative thinkers, including filmmaker Brian Koppelman, journalist Maria Shriver, illustrator Francesca Chessa, and life-hacker Tim Ferriss, have all used morning pages with great success.

Try this theory in your life: Write by hand three pages every morning for eight weeks. See if they help you feed the artist within you.

2. Stephen Kosslyn’s psychology of ideas

What color is the Mona Lisa’s hair? Is your front doorknob on the right side or the left? To answer these questions, you most likely used visual mental imagery, also known as “seeing in the mind’s eye.”

Harvard professor Stephen Kosslyn has studied the psychology of the ways the brain uses mental imagery to generate ideas. Once we understand how the brain generates imagery, it’s easier to act upon this imagery and turn it into new ideas.

Essentially, in this process, the brain receives visual imagery straight from your memory, from things you’ve previously seen that stuck in your brain. When you answered the question above about the doorknob, your brain probably created a mental image of your door and then zoomed in on the door knob area.

Visual imagery is incredibly powerful, Kosslyn says, because “we can transform at will objects in visual mental images, for example by imagining them rotating, shrinking, or growing.” Kosslyn believes that we can use this visual imagery to come up with new ideas—but only if we’re paying attention.

According to Kosslyn, the brain uses four steps to transform mental imagery into new ideas:

a. Generate the image. Images usually come when we’re open to them but slightly distracted (i.e., in the shower). These images can be thought of as half-formed ideas.

b. Retain the image. If you get out of the shower and don’t write the image down, you may forget it as soon as you start making breakfast for your kids.

c. Inspect the image. Look at it from different angles.

d. Transform the image. Modify it to fit your own creative goals. By transforming it into something useful for your own life, you’ve turned it into a fully-formed idea.

At which step do you falter??

For introverts, ideas tend to come from reading, observing the world, spending time in nature, traveling, or taking in the creative arts (movies, art exhibits, concerts). But often, we don’t leave enough white space in our lives to follow up on creative inspiration.

If you leave the time, your first bit of inspiration will lead you to your next bit of inspiration, which can lead to transforming ideas. Twyla Tharp, successful dance choreographer, calls this “scratching.” In her book The Creative Habit, she writes,

“You know how you scratch away at a lottery ticket to see if you’ve won? That’s what I’m doing when I begin a dance piece. I’m digging through everything to find something… Scratching can look like borrowing or appropriating, but it’s an essential part of creativity. It’s primal and very private.”

Try this theory in your life: Schedule time to read a new piece of fiction or watch a movie, and also schedule some unstructured idea-generation time after you’re done to play mentally with the visual images you created from your viewing or reading. Or, if you already have many ideas, schedule time to follow up on the steps three and four: inspecting and transforming those ideas.

3. Ray Bradbury’s diet for your subconscious

In the world of creativity, people often talk about waiting for their muse to appear. Novelist Ray Bradbury wrote in his book Zen in The Art of Writing that your muse is your entire complete being. In other words, your muse is simply yourself.

“When people ask me where I get my ideas, I laugh. How strange—we’re so busy looking out, to find ways and means, we forget to look in.” – Ray Bradbury

Bradbury suggests we curate our own inspiration. “If we are going to diet for our subconscious, how prepare the menu?”

He suggests daily consumption of poetry first, followed by essays, and then short stories and novels. He recommends reading “those who do not think as you think.” Bradbury fed his muse by continually searching for excellence and differences in creativity in others’ work.

Try this theory in your life: Buy a book of poetry and a selection of essays (perhaps some from a previous decade). Read a few every day to help your mind foster a state of creativity.

4. Anne Lamott’s bird-by-bird mantra

The first steps of creativity are often the hardest. Once we have ideas, it’s challenging to act on them. We’re afraid of failure, so we get locked in inertia. In her book Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, best-selling writer Anne Lamott shares a story from her childhood about how her father helped her brother overcome his fear of the first step.

Lamott’s brother was working on a school report about birds, but he procrastinated too long and didn’t start until the night before the due date.

“He was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother’s shoulder, and said, ‘Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.’”

Try this theory in your life: When you’re working on a creative project, ask yourself: what is the quickest way I can get started? How can I start making a bit of progress towards my larger goal? What’s the first step I can get done right now?

Author Elizabeth Gilbert gave a TED talk in 2009 called “Your Elusive Creative Genius” about searching for a way to distance herself from her work in order to protect her creative spirit. Her search led her back to ancient Greece and ancient Rome. She found that

“people did not happen to believe that creativity came from human beings back then. People believed that creativity was this divine attendant spirit that came to human beings from some distant and unknowable source, for distant and unknowable reasons. The Greeks . . . called these divine attendant spirits of creativity ‘daemons.’ Socrates, famously, believed that he had a daemon who spoke wisdom to him from afar.”

Gilbert realized she had found a psychological construct to protect her from the results of her work. “If your work was brilliant, you couldn’t take all the credit for it, everybody knew that you had this disembodied genius who had helped you. If your work bombed, not entirely your fault, you know? Everyone knew your genius was kind of lame.”

Although Gilbert believes her creative effort comes from her hard work, she said, “That’s not at all what my creative process is. I’m a mule, and the way that I have to work is I have to get up at the same time every day, and sweat and labor and barrel through it really awkwardly. But even I, in my mulishness, even I have brushed up against that thing [a muse], at times. And I would imagine that a lot of you have too. You know, even I have had work or ideas come through me from a source that I honestly cannot identify.”

What is Gilbert’s advice to herself?

“Don’t be daunted. Just do your job. Continue to show up for your piece of it, whatever that might be.”

In other words, find a routine for your creativity, and stick with it.

Mini Creates A/D/O, a Design-Oriented Work and Event Space in Brooklyn

The root of the yet-to-be-opened shared space A/D/O in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, will be its Design Academy, a set-up that is meant to foster innovative work and interdisciplinary debate.
Installations, exhibitions, workshops and events will be held in the 23,000-square-foot former warehouse at 29 Norman Avenue, which will be aimed at design professionals. The inaugural one will be “Utopia vs. Dystopia: Designing Our Imagined Futures,” underlining the influence design has on this rapidly changing society. Brooklyn-based Narchitects created open spaces, more quiet breakout rooms, a 16-foot-high mirrored skylight with room for ancillary pieces from guest artists and designers. The first one on deck will be Brooklyn’s Mike Perry, who is working on a rooftop installation.
Interestingly, Mini founded A/D/O, as part of the company’s own design practice and interest in advancements that improve urban life. A/D/O will also be home to the headquarters of Urban-X, a start-up accelerator by Mini and SOSV that offers mentorship, seed capital investment, introduction to a network of global investors and access to leading technology and policy institutions in New York through citywide partners. The mission of it all is “Engineering the City as a Service.”
Through a series of alliances, the facility will offer design-minded initiatives including a

The above improvements have shifted the game’s original release date of December 8 to the new date of December 14.

‘SNL’ Says Target Is Your Safe Space This Thanksgiving

Struggling with the thought of spending time with your family this Thanksgiving?

Don’t worry, “Saturday Night Live” has your back.

In this spoof ad, it offers up discount retailer Target as your safe space.

If you’re home for the first time since the election, Target has what you need the most,” the voiceover states. “A big, empty parking lot you can just come sit in for a sec.”

As “SNL” cast member Cecily Strong demonstrates, its parking lot is the “perfect place to just stare out, bang your head on your steering wheel or text a friend, ‘I honestly can’t with them today.’”

Marginal Space Learning for Medical Image Analysis

Marginal Space Learning for Medical Image Analysis


Automatic detection and segmentation of anatomical structures in medical images are prerequisites to subsequent image measurements and disease quantification, and therefore have multiple clinical applications. This book presents an efficient object detection and segmentation framework, called Marginal Space Learning, which runs at a sub-second speed on a current desktop computer, faster than the state-of-the-art. Trained with a sufficient number of data sets, Marginal Space Learning is also robust under imaging artifacts, noise and anatomical variations. The book showcases 35 clinical applications of Marginal Space Learning and its extensions to detecting and segmenting various anatomical structures, such as the heart, liver, lymph nodes and prostate in major medical imaging modalities (CT, MRI, X-Ray and Ultrasound), demonstrating its efficiency and robustness.

Gant Relocates Regent Street Space, Launches New Store Concept

LONDON — After almost seven years at the same address on Regent Street, Gant has crossed the road and moved into a space formerly occupied by Hugo Boss.
The new store, at 184-186 Regent Street, spans 4,449 square feet across two floors and is located between Hamley’s toy store and Kate Spade.
Gant chief executive officer Patrik Nilsson said he prefers the new location, called it the “sunnier side of the street with 60 percent more traffic.”
He also said the new location was a better space, adding that 60 percent of the products stocked in the store had been selected based on research the company had conducted.
The brand has implemented a new store concept, shifting from an “American lifestyle” to a more “cosmopolitan and sophisticated” aesthetic, with plans to roll out the same approach to its other locations globally. The store’s interiors include movable oak furniture and brass fixtures, with the aim of giving it a more contemporary appeal compared with the previous setup, which was fixed.
“We’ve used the oak cut, which is also taken from the history we have,” said chief marketing officer, Brian Grevy.
“But we also wanted to have a space that was smart. Actually the science behind going into this new

The Door Through Space – The Original Classic Edition

The Door Through Space – The Original Classic Edition


Aliens, empire of Man, and just one story of a man. This book is well-written, with a good sci-fi plot, characters that are a bit under-drawn but only because we are entering their lives in the midst of a crisis. They have a past, and will have a future, and this short book doesnt try to answer everything. Its a rollicking good ride with a hero thats a human hero, a bit risque for 1960, and chock-full of imagination. You wont find the stories of four or five (or forty or fifty) people weaving through one immensely long never-ending publishing buffet. Instead, its told through the eyes of only one man, and told well. The story is exactly what I expected – classic pulp science fiction. It is well-written and has a vivid and interesting world. Is it great literature? No. But it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. This is a freshly published edition of this culturally important work, which is now, at last, again available to you. Enjoy this classic work. These few paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside: It lay white and windswept, a barricade of emptiness; to one side the spaceport and the white skyscraper of the Terran Headquarters, and at the other side, the clutter of low buildings, the street-shrine, the little spaceport cafe smelling of coffee and jaco, and the dark opening mouths of streets that rambled down into the Kharsa-the old town, the native quarter. .Even after six years behind a desk, my neat business clothes-suitable for an Earthman with a desk job-didnt fit quite right, and I still rose unconsciously on the balls of my feet, approximating the lean stooping walk of a Dry-towner from the Coronis plains. .It had been six years; six years of slow death behind a desk, since the day when Rakhal Sensar had left me a marked man; death-warrant written on my scarred face anywhere outside the narrow confines of the Terran law on Wolf. .It had been Rakhal who first led me through the byways of the Kharsa, teaching

Concepts of Space

Concepts of Space


Although the concept of space is of fundamental importance in both physics and philosophy, until the publication of this book, the idea of space had never been treated in terms of its historical development. It remained for Dr. Jammer, noted scholar and historian of science, to trace the evolution of the idea of space in this comprehensive, thought-provoking study. The focus of the book is on physical, rather than metaphysical, ideas of space; however, philosophical or theological speculations are discussed when relevant. The author has also given special attention to the cultural settings in which the theories developed. Following a Foreword by Albert Einstein and an introductory chapter on the concept of space in antiquity, subsequent chapters consider Judaeo-Christian ideas about space, the emancipation of the space concept from Aristotelianism, Newton’s concept of absolute space and the concept of space from the eighteenth century to the present. For this third edition, Dr. Jammer has contributed an extensive new chapter six, reviewing the numerous and profound changes in the philosophy of space since the publication of the second edition. An abundance of meticulously documented quotations from original sources and numerous bibliographic references make this an exceptionally well-documented book. It is essential reading for philosophers, physicists, and mathematicians, but even nonprofessional readers will find it accessible.

Michael Jordan’s Tune Squad Uniform From ‘Space Jam’ Is Hitting The Auction Block

Michael Jordan’s most important uniform — you know, the one he wore while saving the earth — is hitting the auction block this fall.

Starting on Oct. 1, fans of Jordan and the 1996 sports entertainment classic “Space Jam” can bid on the actual Tune Squad uniform Jordan wore during the making of the movie. Despite there being “signs of wear” and “minor staining” on the uniform, it’ll be available for bidding through online auction house Invaluable via Los Angeles-based auction house Profiles In History.

Invaluable estimates the price to fall between $ 10,000 (the starting bid) and $ 15,000, but in the past, Jordan memorabilia has been auctioned off for upwards of $ 100,000

Continuing an epic summer of celestial photography, NASA released a stunning image of the International Space Station on Sunday. The shot, captured by agency photographer Bill Ingalls, shows the ISS flying across the face of the moon at a breakneck five miles per second.

 There are currently six crew members on board the ISS, which orbits some 300 miles above Earth. The moon, meanwhile, is 238,900 miles away.

Ingalls has served as the senior contract photographer for the U.S. space agency for 27 years. You can see more of his stunning work on his personal website.
