Hawaiian Airlines Unveils New Line of Sustainable Amenity Kits

Hawaiian Airlines announced it would be launching a new line of in-flight amenities focused on sustainability with the help of Moloka’i-based brand Kealopiko. Travelers flying with Hawaiian starting on November 26 between Hawaii and the airline’s international and select U.S. mainland destinations will receive amenities and soft goods that pay homage to Hawaii’s delicate natural resources. The line of sustainable products has been dubbed Ekaha, which represents thriving coral reef, the bird’s nest fern and a symbiotic relationship between the land and sea. International Business Class and First-Class passengers traveling between New York City and Boston will receive a branded canvas clutch available in two different designs. In addition, travelers in Extra Comfort will receive a natural felt pouch with a wood tag engraved with the Ekaha story. “Embarking on this redesign, we knew we wanted a partner who could help us tell the stories of our island home,” Hawaiian Airlines senior vice president Avi Mannis said in a statement. “Kealopiko is a natural fit. Their sustainable production and bold, contemporary design align with our values and complement the flight ex...

“You Don’t Bring Bad News to the Cult Leader”: Inside the Fall of WeWork

Adam Neumann reimagined the millennial workplace as a capitalist kibbutz, and so dazzled Wall Street that his company was valued at $47 billion. He spent lavishly, and pressed forward even as “the narrative of the unicorn was ending,” says an executive. Now, after the collapse, he’s said to talk of himself as a martyr. On the afternoon of September 18, 2019, WeWork cofounder Adam Neumann was in his office at WeWork’s Chelsea headquarters when he got a text alert on his iPhone. The Wall Street Journal had just published an explosive article chronicling what it said was his reckless management of the coworking start-up, the era’s preeminent unicorn. Neumann is dyslexic, and reading is a challenge, so advisers quickly briefed him on the story’s most troubling details: vivid accounts of his heavy drinking, marijuana use, and habit of making grandiose pronouncements like wanting to be elected president of the world, live forever, and become humanity’s first trillionaire. The article could not have arrived at a more perilous moment. Two days earlier, the We Company, WeWork’s parent, announced that it was delaying its IPO after investors universally rejected the offering, even when WeW...

45 Cheap But Awesome Things On Amazon That Make Your Home Cozy & Super Inviting

There’s nothing quite as comforting as kicking back in a cozy, inviting home after a long day. To some, that means your lights turn on automatically when you walk through the doors.

Asynt announces FroSyn, an innovative fluid-free cooling plate that enables rapid cooling of samples in vials

Asynt announces FroSyn, an innovative fluid-free cooling plate that enables rapid cooling of samples in vials or round-bottom flasks (up to 500 mL) to below -60 °C. Unlike dry ice cooling baths that require constant attention, the stable and controlled sub-ambient performance of the FroSyn means that even overnight reactions can be performed with complete confidence. Specialized insulation around the cooling probe and plate on the FroSyn improves performance, keeps the apparatus ice-free, and helps eliminate the possibility of operator cold burns during operation. Positioning of the FroSyn on top of a conventional magnetic stirrer plate allows for efficient sample mixing during cooled experiments. The use of either weights and seals for the flask inserts, or an inerting dome with the vial plates, prevents the formation of ice on the glassware. Other custom cooling accessories are also available to compliment different applications, for example, a 4-position holding module for battery research and development. The BRAND Insert 2in1 can be used as both a hanging insert and a standing insert in 2D and 3D cell culture. When used as a hanging insert, it fits nearly all standard multi...

An “intricate” Jack-O-Lantern doesn’t look like a carving – it looks like a painting. Take Queen

An “intricate” Jack-O-Lantern doesn’t look like a carving – it looks like a painting. Take Queen Nefertiti, for example: Her gaze is regal, her smile sly. You can see her high cheekbones, the contours of her slender neck. Every detail of her headdress and earrings is meticulously rendered, as if by brush. There’s shading and foreshortening, depth and personality. As the LED light glows within the pumpkin, the golden hue of her skin seems to breathe with life. Queen Nefertiti debuted at last year’s Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Park Zoo. Now multiply this one pumpkin by 200 intricates, then add nearly 5,000 regular Jack-O-Lanterns. Remember that each pumpkin starts to decay the moment it’s gutted. Every week, artists must re-carve every last gourd, from the simplest to the most photo-realistic. To sustain the Spectacular, organizers build and rebuild the exhibit, removing and replacing, lighting and relighting, for one exhaustive month. By November, more than 100,000 people will have walked the Jack-O-Lantern path, gazing in wonder at those glowing images etched in squash. In 147 years, the Spectacular is the biggest event ever hosted by the Roger Williams Park...

Nigel Slater: 10 recipes from my little black book | Food

Exclusive extract: For years, Nigel Slater has been writing down everything he eats in his notebook. These notes shape the plant-based recipes in his new book, Greenfeast There is a little black book on the kitchen table. Neatly annotated in places, virtually illegible in others, it is the latest in a long line of tissue-thin pages containing the hand-written details of everything I eat. This is not one of the kitchen chronicles where I write down recipe workings and shopping lists, ideas and wishlists, but a daily diary of everything that ends up on my plate. If I have yoghurt, blackcurrant compote and pumpkin seeds at breakfast, it will be in that little book. Likewise, a lunch of green lentils and grilled red peppers, or a dinner of roast cauliflower and a bowl of miso soup. Each bowl of soup, plate of pasta and every mushroom on toast is faithfully logged. I don’t know exactly why or when I started noting down my dinner, but these little books are now filled in out of habit as much as anything else. The notes are often made at night, just before I lock up and go to bed. I suspect my little black books will be buried with me. I occasionally look back at what I have written, o...
