What is Quibi?

‘Life is Beautiful’ resonates again with its message about shielding children

When “Life is Beautiful” was released in the United States in 1998, I wasn’t as wild about the movie as many others were. I appreciated the tone of director/co-writer/star Roberto Benigni’s film about a father shielding his young son from the horrors of a concentration camp, the premise seemed a trifle strained and sanitized.

About Programming

Real programmers don’t work from 9 to 5. If any real programmers are around at 9am it’s because they were up all night.

There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is
to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked.

Real programmers don’t comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

Beware of programmers who carry screwdrivers.

Thinking About Getting a Hair Transplant? Here’s Everything You Need to Know

As a man of a certain age (that is, over 20), you’ve probably noticed some hair thinning when you stare at your reflection—or maybe you’ve noticed a lot of it. Every man experiences hair loss, and it can be a shocking process as you accept the recession, thinning, patchiness, and (eventually) the permanent shaved hairstyle.

So you’ve probably also wondered about a hair transplant, and whether or not you should get one. Aren’t they expensive? Will it look natural? How is it performed? Does it hurt? Does it scar? Also, why is everyone flying to Turkey for them?


5 Grooming Products That’ll Fight Dandruff and Save Your Flaky Scalp

There are a lot of questions to be answered. So for that, we sought the wisdom of Dr. Serkan Aygin, a dermatologist who performs hundreds of hair transplants in Istanbul each year. (He’s also been performing them since the 90s.) Here are our questions—and yours—on hair transplants, along with Dr. Agin’s thorough replies. It should be all you need to book your consulting appointment.

Who is an eligible candidate for a hair transplant?

There are two main things Aygin assesses with his patients.

First, the existing hair loss: “We diagnose the cause of a guy’s particular type of hair loss, to measure the severity, as well as the pattern of his hair loss condition. This will give us a clear understanding of the amount of donor hair a patient has available, the quality of the donor hair, and the size of the balding areas that need to be treated.” The donor hair is typically taken from the rear of the head, in graduated levels so it doesn’t leave a noticeable bald mark or scar, as was the concern with past methods of transplants. This is generally determined based on your specific hair loss classification, using the Norwood Scale.” (The Norwood Scale measures a man’s progression of balding; read on for more information.)

Secondly, the patient’s health: “Although hair transplantation is considered a minimally invasive surgery, there are still risks involved, and being in optimal health is very important. Medical factors can vary from patient to patient and can determine if you’re a good candidate, which would all be discussed during the initial consultation.”

Aygin then sets proper expectations with his patients, once they decide to move forward. “It’s important to have realistic expectations and to understand that your hair loss might continue to progress after surgery,” he says. “Some men have to continue medications after surgery to retain as much of their hair as possible. [This is especially true] if your hair loss pattern has not been stabilized yet.”

When are guys “too bald” to receive a transplant?

Aygin again points to the Norwood Scale, which classifies male pattern baldness based on its severity or progression. “Each stage is given a number—and the higher the number, the more evident the hair loss is,” he says. “Stage 6–7 on the Norwood Scale is considered the most severe stage of male pattern baldness, and this can mean that men who are at this level might not be eligible to have a hair transplant. This does not imply that a hair transplant with this level of hair loss is always impossible. It depends entirely on the patient, the practitioner, and the potential donor area.”


The 5 Most Effective Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair

What are the most common types of transplant procedures being performed today? Which one is right for me?

The two main transplant procedures are follicular unit extraction (FUE) and direct hair implantation (DHI). They are very similar but have one core difference, which occurs at the stages wherein the incision and actual transplantation are performed. Aygin notes that, in DHI transplants, these two final steps are merged into one, whereas in FUE, they’re performed separately.

“The major distinctive feature of the DHI method compared to other hair transplant methods is it employs a pen-like medical instrument called a ‘Choi implanter’ that creates the recipient sites [where the hair is being implanted] and simultaneously transplants the grafts,” says Aygin. “In the FUE method, the recipient sites are created as a first, separate step, and later the donor hair is transplanted into these areas.”

Here are the other differences between DHI and FUE transplants:

FUE transplants: Allows to transplant around 3,000 to 4,500 grafts in a single session (which can last upwards of 5–6 hours). FUE is ideal for covering large areas of loss. To perform FUE transplants, the patients must shave their entire head.
DHI transplants: Allows for approximately 1,500 to 2,500 follicular unit grafts in a single session (also 5–6 hours). Has a faster recovery period and is typically performed with less bleeding than FUE method. DHI is more optimal when you want to achieve higher density. DHI recipients need to only shave the donor area of their hair, not the area that will receive the transplant itself. (“This is usually seen as a significant advantage for female patients,” says Aygin.) The DHI method also requires more skills and experience than other methods, including FUE. Those physicians and medical teams who administer it have also undergone long-term training, to specialize in DHI. They’re also more expensive than FUE transplants.

Which one is best for me?

“During your initial consultation, the physician will determine which transplantation method is best for you based on your hair loss classification, the size of the thinning area, quality and quantity of your available donor hair,” Aygin says.


How to Get Mark Wahlberg’s Clean-Cut Hairstyle

Do doctors use anesthesia?

Don’t worry: You won’t feel any pain or discomfort during the process. “A hair transplant is usually carried out under local anaesthetic,” says Aygin. And beginning in 2019, his clinic and many others have started to use sedation methods to help patients feel more comfortable during the operation. “When hair transplantation is combined with sedation, the patient will remain awake without feeling any discomfort, and he/she will not feel the graft extraction, recipient site creation, or transplantation processes,” he says.

How does the doctor decide where to “draw” the hairline?

Your surgeon will assess where your hair grew before it originally fell out. Secondly, they’ll assess the starting point of your hairline. “This is the lowest point on your upper forehead where your hair will start to grow post-transplant,” Aygin says. “We have several muscles on our forehead and it’s not possible to transplant on the muscle, so the hair transplant surgeon must first determine where the forehead muscles sit.” They can do this by examining your face when you lift your eyebrows, which will expose your forehead folds and muscles—which end where the folds stop. “However, this does not mean that the hair should start to grow at this point,” Aygin says. “It varies from person to person.”

The other thing that must be assessed is the angle at which your hair grows in each spot on the head. “Hair has the tendency to grow at a particular angle on different areas of the scalp,” he says. “For instance, at the sides, hair can grow in a downward direction while at the front it may grow outward. So it’s very important to take the direction and the angle of each hair follicle into consideration, while defining the hairline and planning the hair transplantation. Each hair follicle on the hairline is located in a unique position. A hairline doesn’t contain straight lines. If the new hairline is drawn in a pattern of straight lines, the result will look unnatural. To achieve a natural look the hairline design should be created in more of a zig-zag pattern.”


Wanna Have a Better Hair Day? Try One of These Dry Shampoos

Will the hair look natural once it’s transplanted? And will the transplant leave a scar?

“When a hair transplantation procedure is performed by an experienced physician and a professional team, the results will look undeniably natural,” says Aygin. “Obtaining natural results from hair transplantation all lies in correct planning. This includes ensuring the hairline is in harmony with the patient’s facial lines. Also, the hair quality of the patient and the hair density in the donor area are important factors affecting how natural-looking results are. Hair grows at different angles and in different directions—so, in order to obtain the naturalness, hair transplantation should be performed in certain thicknesses by taking the growth angle and direction of the existing hair into account.”

He compares the natural-looking results of today with those of decades prior, when scars were common and transplants were less realistic: “During the initial years of hair transplantation, procedures would often have unnatural-looking results called ‘grass head.’ This has inevitably led to a negative perception about hair transplants in the years that followed. Today, hair transplantation is carried out more often than not with the FUE technique, one of the latest and most modern hair transplantation methods. The FUE technique, which has been successfully used since 2004, is now carried out using smooth and sharp ‘sapphire’ tips. The sapphire tips used in hair transplantation allow to achieve a more natural look by transplanting grafts with greater thickness, without leaving any scars.”


Stem Cell Treatment Could Cure Baldness in the Future. Here’s What We Know

How much do procedures cost? How do you determine the cost?

Aygin operates his business out of Istanbul, so his prices reflect that market. (Coincidentally, it’s a good market to measure, since so many men—and women—fly from around the world to Turkey for a transplant. As a basis of comparison, a FUE hair transplant in the U.S. for approximately 3,000 grafts can run upwards of $ 10K or $ 15K. In Turkey, particularly in Istanbul, the same procedure of 3,000 grafts varies between $ 1,700 and $ 2,500. Oftentimes, you can also buy a package that includes airfare and hotel. Speaking firsthand on my own visit to Istanbul, I saw dozens of recently transplanted men in the airport, who were flying to their homes in each corner of the globe. Aygin posits that there are more than 350 clinics in Istanbul alone.

Why the low costs abroad, though? “Low costs are not an indicator of poor quality,” Aygin says. “Low prices are mostly due to the economy, purchase-power-parity differences and a devalued currency ratio, as opposed to a reflection of low quality.”

What things should I do after the transplant to ensure my hair stays full?

“It’s imperative you follow the instructions and suggestions given by your doctor after hair transplantation,” says Aygin. This might include other methods to prevent hair fall, such as minoxidil, finasteride, and PRP. “Also, eating healthily will help growth and strengthen new hair follicles. At this stage, being prudent about nutrition and prioritizing foods that cultivate hair growth will increase the rate of cell regeneration after transplantation, and will help to shorten the recovery time after the operation.”

Aygin suggests a diet of the below nutrients:

B-Complex Vitamins: “B-complex vitamins such as B7 (biotin) and B12 have a very important role in the structure, quality, and healthy growth of hair strands.”
Zinc: “Zinc also plays an important role in tissue repair, collagen production, cell proliferation, hormonal balance, absorption of vitamins, and protein synthesis.” It’s imperative to slow or hinder hair thinning and fall.
Iron: “Iron deficiency, like zinc deficiency, can also cause hair loss. Iron strengthens hair, improves hair texture, and helps transport oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles and scalp.”
Vitamin E: “Vitamin E has antioxidant properties. Because it accelerates the healing of damaged skin, it’s very effective in healing scars. After the wounds on the donor, and recipient areas are healed, vitamin E oil can be applied to soften the tissue and improve its quality.”
Vitamin C: “Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, which has a very important role in the production of collagen. Collagen plays a vital role in healing wounds.”
Vitamin A: “Vitamin A is required for the development and growth of all cells in the human body, including hair roots. Vitamin A is also effective in the production of sebum, a substance similar to the fatty tissue that moisturizes the scalp and makes hair healthy.”

Here are activities you should avoid after a transplant, according to Aygin:

Avoid use of saunas, steam baths, and solariums for 2 months.
Avoid strenuous exercise such as running, gym work, and weightlifting that can cause excessive sweating for 15 days. Avoid excess moisture in humid conditions.
Postpone excessive muscle activity such as weightlifting and bodybuilding for 15 days.
Postpone engaging in physical activities such as basketball, volleyball, football and swimming for 1 month.
Avoid swimming in pools or/and sea for 1 month after the procedure.
Avoid getting any direct sunlight sun on the recipient and donor area for 2 months.


The 7 Best Supplements for Healthier, Stronger, Fuller Hair

What does recovery look like? How long until I have the results I paid for?

Here’s a typical hair transplantation recovery timeline, as outlined by Aygin:

Day 1: “The first day following the operation [calls for] post-operational cleaning. After cleaning, the bandage on the donor area is removed and a laser treatment is provided.”

Day 3: “Patients may begin to wash their head adhering to the post-operative washing instructions, utilizing special lotion and shampoo. Washing will help with the healing process.”

Days 5–7: “Within 5-7 days following the operation, the transplanted grafts will become stronger, and will not be dislodged by touching. Patients should avoid scratching the transplanted area. They may feel an itching sensation during this period. This is normal and a natural part of the wound-healing process.”

Days 15–30: “The patient’s appearance will turn back to normal within 2 to 3 weeks, as the distinction between their transplanted and native hair will eventually disappear, making the hair transplant procedure unnoticeable to the untrained eye.”

1–3 months post-surgery: “Shedding of the transplanted hair, also known as Shock Loss, is experienced during this stage. This occurs due to the temporary rest phase that all transplanted hair follicles enter after a hair transplant procedure. This is a normal and expected condition.”

3 months post-surgery: “Patients can expect new hair growth usually within 5 to 6 months following the procedure. Moreover, this is also the stage where they’ll start noticing that the new transplanted hair has thickened considerably.”

By 6 to 10 months: “Patients will begin to notice the most impressive difference since the initial procedure. After a full year, they can expect to see the final results of the procedure, however the recovery period may take more than a year, especially when the transplantation is performed in the crown area.”


Ewan McGregor’s a Hair God. Here’s How to Ask Your Barber for His Haircut

Do transplants work differently for different types of hair? Do men with thick, curly hair or afro-textured hair have different experiences?

“Asian hair follicles are found in single and double hair follicle groups in the scalp—while African Americans have grafts with triple hair follicles, and Caucasians have grafts with triple and quadruple hair follicles,” Aygin explains. “Although African Americans have a thin hair shaft, the reason for that voluminous appearance is due to the fact their hair is curly. It also requires fewer grafts in hair transplantation. Although it’s advantageous to have curly hair in this respect, it may cause complications, especially in the graft-harvesting phase of the procedure. The epidermis layer [upper skin] that surrounds the hair follicle externally is thicker and tighter compared to other ethnic groups. This may cause damage to the hair follicles, like ruptures and [graft damage during extraction] in the graft-taking phase. Another possible complication is the risk of ‘keloid’ development on scars in the healing process after hair transplantation. This abnormal wound formation, which occurs as a result of ongoing tissue repair due to the production of excess cells by the body after the wounds are healed, is more common in African Americans than in other ethnic groups. It’s possible to obtain successful results from hair transplantation of patients with African hair, if it’s performed by an experienced hair transplantation specialist and a professional team with modern equipment, proper technique, and care. These risks are not typically an issue for people with Asian and Caucasian hair textures.”

Do beard transplants work the same way? How are they different from hair transplants?

“The technique used for beard transplants, which is generally the DHI technique, is also used for hair transplantation on the scalp,” Aygin says. “A beard transplant procedure uses the same donor area—the back and sides of the head—as is used in standard hair transplant surgery. As with any hair transplant procedure, beard transplants also require a sufficient amount of donor hairs, so patients who are considering beard transplantation should first consult with their hair transplant surgeon to determine whether they’re a good candidate.”

But when he suddenly finds himself responsible for a motherless five-year-old, his world is turned upside down. What does he know about caring for a little girl?

What can Brown do for Team USA? Just about everything

Since teammate Jayson Tatum’s injury, Jaylen Brown has been a key contributor for Team USA.
www.espn.com – NBA

The Dumbest Arguments about Gun Control

People routinely have different priorities and different information, so it is no surprise we also have different opinions on what to do about gun violence in this country. As a public service, I will separate out the good arguments from the dumb ones. Reasonable people who have different priorities can still debate the stronger arguments, so there’s no point in anyone wasting time on dumb arguments. I’ll show you the dumbest arguments on both sides. Maybe we can collectively stop using them.

Look how optimistic I am!

Other Countries Argument

The Other Countries argument suggests that because tight gun control works in other countries, we should expect it would work in the United States. That is an irrational argument because the United States is different from every other country in more ways than I can list. At most, the Other Countries argument suggests gun control isn’t guaranteed to be a disaster. But that is different from saying it is likely such laws would turn out well in the United States. We simply can’t know that the experience of other countries would translate to our situation.

Nor does it matter.

The Americans who want to maintain gun rights to protect against potential tyranny from our own government are specifically worried about future events. We can’t look at the history of Denmark (for example) to know anything about the future of the United States. Nor would it matter if we could somehow magically calculate the risk of tyranny springing up in Denmark versus it happening in the United States, because any risk above zero would be enough to justify gun ownership.

The more rational approach than looking at other countries would involve trying some changes in the law in a few states or cities in this country and tracking how much difference it makes compared to states or cities that are comparable.

No match for a standing army

Gun control advocates often like to point out that private gun owners in this country would never be a match for a standing army, should we ever get to the point of some sort of dictator situation in which the military is turned on the public. But that isn’t the right question. The right question is whether the guns in this country would be sufficient to handle assassinations, kidnapping of family members of both the military and the rogue government, and economic disruption in general. For those tasks, citizens are already sufficiently armed.

Slippery slope

Slippery slope arguments are magical thinking. Everything in this world changes until it has a reason to stop. There is nothing special about being “on a slippery slope.” It is an empty idea. Society regulates all manner of products and activities, but we don’t worry about those other regulations becoming a slippery slope. We observe that change stops when the majority (or vocal minority) decide enough is enough. To put it another way, mowing the lawn does not lead to shaving your dog.

It’s in the Constitution

Gun advocates like to remind us that gun ownership is a protected right that is in the Constitution, end of story. But that ignores the fact that the Constitution was written to be updated. The process for changing the Constitution is well understood, and difficult by design, so it doesn’t happen often. But we can change the Constitution, and in the past we have. “It’s a Constitutional right” is a meaningless thing to say because we voters decide what is in and out of the Constitution. On top of that, we can, and do, create laws that constrict gun ownership all the time. Apparently the Supreme Court agrees that’s allowed.

The Constitution refers to militias, not ordinary gun ownership

I’m no Constitutional scholar, but in all likelihood neither are you. But I do know it doesn’t matter how you and I interpret the Constitution, because the Supreme Court apparently thinks private gun ownership is a right, and that doesn’t look likely to change any time soon. While I understand how people can be on both sides of the militia interpretation, I reserve the right to not listen to your blabber until you are on the Supreme Court. My opinion on what is or is not Constitutional doesn’t count. Neither does yours. So let’s take this argument off the table because we are not on the Supreme Court.

People will just use other tools to kill

This argument assumes adding friction to a process had no impact. But in the real world, adding friction to just about anything changes behavior. Extra friction might not eliminate a behavior you want to curtail, but it generally has an impact. As evidence of my point, we don’t see fully automatic weapons being used in mass shootings despite the fact they would be the best weapon for the job. They don’t overheat, for example. You can buy a fully automatic weapon in the United States, but they are super expensive and raise some flags in the system if you try. That bit of friction (price and visibility) made them effectively disappear from crime scenes. Friction works.

Friction almost always changes behavior. We’d need to do some testing to see how any particular gun law changes the variables in play, but most of human experience suggests friction — of any kind — will change behavior a bit. It is rational to say we don’t know how much impact any particular law will have. It is not rational to say we shouldn’t test some changes locally and see what happens.

Criminals can always get guns

Criminals can always get guns if they try hard enough. But I’m more concerned about the 18-year old who has no criminal record but does have some mental illness. That kid is not as resourceful as career criminals. If that kid can’t get a firearm through the normal and legal process, the friction can be enough to reduce the odds of getting one illegally.

Gun deaths are not that high

About half of gun deaths are suicides. Lots of other gun deaths involve criminals shooting each other. If you subtract out those deaths, the number of gun deaths is low compared to other risks we routinely accept, such as the risk of auto accidents, overeating, sports, etc. If the current amount of gun violence seems worth the price to you, that would be a rational point of view. But it would not be rational to avoid testing some methods to reduce gun violence even further. Americans don’t stop trying to fix a problem just because only 10,000 people per year are dying from it. That’s still a lot. And if we can test new approaches in one city or state, why not?

I might update the list of bad arguments as I see new ones.

Update:

You are ignoring the lives saved by guns

No, I’m not. I’m looking at the net deaths by guns, which is what matters. If a new law improves the net death rate, that’s good enough, unless it causes some other problem.

Testing in one state won’t work because people can just drive across the border to get guns

We might also need to restrict in-person gun purchases to residents of the state. That’s a simple Federal change, for example.

But even without that limitation, we can often tell where guns came from, at least for perps who are caught. We would soon know if the state line issue made all the difference, some difference, or no difference in gun deaths. Because all friction works (to some degree), one would expect that making people drive to another state changes behavior. We would also expect to see the least reduction in gun deaths from residents who live nearest other state borders. This is all testable and measurable.

Chicago has tight gun laws and also high gun violence

The intended point is that tighter gun restrictions do not reduce gun violence, because it isn’t working in Chicago. But the point ignores the obvious, that the places with the worst gun violence are likely to pass the strictest gun laws in response. We should expect that most if not all the places with the most gun laws violence have the most restrictive gun laws, or will soon.

The Chicago example also ignores the fact we have no way of knowing how much more gun violence would have occurred without the current laws in place.

Starbucks In Philly Under Fire For Islamophobic Name Jab At Muslim Man, Lied About Apologizing

racism-Starbucks-US-POLITICS-RACISM-EDUCATION-STARBUCKS

Source: KENA BETANCUR / Getty

Once again, a Starbucks in Philadelphia is under fire for making another racist inference according to the claims of a patron who says staff in the store took a swipe at his name. Niquel Johnson, a 40-year-old Muslim man who goes by the name Aziz, says an employee at Starbucks wrote “ISIS” as his name and he adds that they also lied about speaking with his niece to issue an apology.

The Washington Post exclusively reports:

Niquel Johnson paid for three drinks in Philadelphia on Sunday, and in typical Starbucks fashion, an employee asked for his name. Johnson, 40, told them “Aziz,” his Islamic name pronounced ah-zeez. He has used it for 25 years — and “countless” times at that particular store.

But three unusual things happened on this occasion, he said. When his order was ready, a staffer announced them by drink type, not his name.

The second unusual part was the employee wrote his name as “ISIS” — the acronym for the Islamic terror group — in the printout attached to all three drinks.

Johnson didn’t even realize it until later, when a friend pointed it out at a bookstore.

“I was shocked and angry. I felt it was discrimination,” Johnson told The Washington Post on Friday.

The outlet writes that Starbucks claimed they spoke with Johnson’s niece and settled the matter. The kicker is that Johnson says whoever the company claims they spoke with, a woman named Alora, isn’t someone known to him in his life.

Johnson is considering legal action.

“Let’s just say, if you had told me Kanye West would have been the number one focus of my week, the media, and my part in the VMA’s I would’ve looked at you crossed-eyed,” reads part of the entry from September 18, 2009, five days after Yeezy grabbed the mic and said Beyonce should have gotten the Female Video of the Year award.

She added, “If you had told me that one of the biggest stars in music was going to jump up onstage and announce that he thought I shouldn’t have won on live television, I would’ve said ‘That stuff doesn’t really happen in real life…,”

7 Stylish and Sustainable Clothing Brands You Can Feel Good About Wearing

Great style shouldn’t come at the cost of sacrificing your ethical and sustainable values. The global clothing and footwear industries account for about 8 percent of the world´s greenhouse gas emissions, according to a 2018 study from Quantis, a group that studies sustainability. Of course, you don’t want to contribute to that number by buying a closet filled with short-lived, eco-depleting, fast fashion. On the other hand, that stained T-shirt and crusty flip-flops from summers past aren’t doing you any favors.


Three Sustainable Clothing Companies That Are (Figuratively) Killing It

Thankfully, updating your closet and maintaining your consciousness is as easy as supporting companies that do good. These seven sustainable brands with out-of-the-box social, environmental, and ethical responsibility initiatives can elevate your style.

OluKai

Summer footwear can seem like an afterthought if you’re used to wearing a pair of forgettable flip-flops. But when you slide on a pair of OluKai slip-ons or sandals, not only will your feet get the support they need on the boat or beach, but your purchase will actually contribute toward the brand’s impressive social-responsibility mission. The California-based casual footwear brand inspired by Hawaii is a Certified B Corporation, which means it balances profitability with purpose and meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance and transparency. It even has its own Ama OluKai Foundation. Their foundation funds nine organizations with aims of restoring traditional Hawaiian culture and encouraging new growth with nonprofits for everything from at-risk youth, local arts organizations, traditional Polynesian sailing, and the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association. This classic ʻOhana sandal pictured has custom artwork laser-etched on the footbed by Hawaiʻi artist Matthew Tapia.

Patagonia

The OG of sustainability and responsibility isn’t one to rest on its proverbial laurels. When it’s not suing the government to protect national parks, the Certified B Corp—which donated its $ 10 million tax refund to environmental groups this year—is consistently challenging the norm, protecting the environment, and creating innovative products. Their new Hot Weather Naturals Hemp Blends collection is the latest example. The Fair Trade Certified pieces are made with organic cotton, Tencel, and hemp (commercial hemp growing has been federally prohibited for almost 50 years in the U.S.). The result? A light, breathable, durable collection of shirts and shorts. The Trail Harbor Polo will keep you feeling dry and looking cool.

Outerknown

Plastic bottles and single-use packaging aren’t the only things hurting the environment. Tiny fibers from synthetic fabrics, like polyester swim trunks, enter our waterways each time they’re washed or worn in water—eventually to be consumed by sea life and later ingested by you. Outerknown, founded by pro surfer Kelly Slater (already known for making clothing from recycled fishing nets), has a new line of Australian merino wool trunks called Woolaroo that leave no trace. Before you imagine a thick, soggy sweater soaking up water, know that they’re woven with special technology to make them quick-drying, water-wicking, odor-resistant, and fully biodegradable. Bonus: They’re as easy on the eyes as they are on the environment.

[$ 125, Woolaroo Trunks; outerknown.com]

SOLO Eyewear

You’ll feel better sliding on these stylish sunnies that not only protect your eyes but also help restore vision to those in need: SOLO Eyewear donates 10 percent of its profits. The San Diego-based brand has helped more than 15,000 people in 32 countries see better by funding eye exams, eyeglasses, and cataract surgeries. The sunglasses are also eco-friendly, made from repurposed bamboo and recycled plastic, which has saved hundreds of pounds of new plastic from being produced each year. Even the sunglass cases and cords are thoughtful: They’re made by a group of female artisans in Panajachel, Guatemala. If that’s not enough, the startup also repurposes packing materials and defective sunglasses for parts.

[$ 89, Guyana; soloeyewear.com]

United By Blue

More than one million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute, according to the United Nations Environment Programme. And every year around the world, 5 trillion single-use plastic bags are used. In addition to using organic and recycled fabrics, United By Blue takes their commitment to the environment further by organizing cleanups aimed at plastic pollution. Last year, it hosted 45 trash removal events in 21 states, removing more than 500,000 pounds of trash. But that’s just the tip of the pile. The Philadelphia-based company cleans up a pound of trash for every product sold—and currently it’s at 1,756,888 pounds. They don’t sacrifice style for substance, and these chambray shorts made from organic cotton and a blend of new and recycled hemp are proof.

[$ 62, Selby Short; unitedbyblue.com]

JCRT

Clothes headed to a landfill aren’t the only kind of waste that comes from fabric production. Aside from scraps of fabric left behind on the factory floor, the process requires significant amounts of energy and water. Not so with JCRT, makers of hand-crafted, limited-edition plaid shirts. The brand partners with Resonance’s Factory, which handles everything in its Dominican Republic space, rather than the usual method of sending pieces across the globe for completion. In addition to cutting back on environmentally unfriendly transportation, the factory’s advanced and very precise printing technology uses about two-thirds less material per garment, limiting damaging dye and water usage. Order online and your piece, like this cotton twill shirt, will be made on demand and shipped directly to you.

[$ 95, The Wrinkle In Time Short Sleeve Shirt; jc-rt.com]

Tact & Stone

The amount of water it takes to create a single cotton T-shirt is pretty shocking—around 650–700 gallons. If you’re a number-driven kind of guy, you’ll appreciate Tact & Stone, an LA-based brand that launched in February 2019. They aim for all-around sustainability, with a modern collection that’s not only stylish but transparent (they share the names of the ethical factories they work with); low-impact (they use organic, recycled, and upcycled materials); and forward-thinking (they engineer garments for a second and third life). A Tact & Stone upcycled pocket T-shirt saves 538 gallons of water, and their French terry hoodie saves a whopping 1,197 gallons. And similar to the circular economy concept used by Taylor Stitch, Patagonia, REI, and The North Face, once you’re done with a Tact & Stone piece, send it back for upcycling and you’ll get a discount on your next purchase.

Social Media Has a Lot to Say About Nars’ Phallic Lipstick Campaign

Nars is taking risqué marketing to the next level.
The 25-year-old beauty company, best known for its Orgasm blush — among other shade names that are sexual innuendos — has social media abuzz over its newest campaign.
Nars posted the raunchy video — which shows a nude lipstick melting into the phallic shape — to its Instagram account with the caption: “When the nudes keep you up all night.” Social media was quick to react, with many expressing their shock at the campaign. Model Chrissy Teigen, for one, poked fun at the campaign on her Twitter account.

What You Need to Know About Scott Eastwood’s New Made Here Collection

Scott Eastwood is stepping into some new territory. After starring in big films like Pacific Rim: Uprising and The Fate of the Furious over the last couple years, the actor is launching a new style collection, Made Here, which will have products that are inspired by the American worker.


Cover Story: Scott Eastwood on ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ and Living an Adventurous Life

So what exactly is Made Here about? While you’ll have to wait to see, the upcoming new line will include shirts, boxers, socks, hats and other accessories for both men and women. The idea behind the brand is that everything will be made in the United States and also will “celebrate the American worker” through its designs. Eastwood has partnered with entrepreneur Dane Chapin for the new collection.

“For hundreds of years, ‘American-made’ has been synonymous with high quality,” said Eastwood in a press release. “It’s all the hard-working folks across the country that make our brand possible. I want to honor the iconic heritage of American manufacturing and let people know it’s very much alive and well. The essence of Made Here is really very simple: it’s to celebrate the excellence of the American worker.”

While Eastwood has been hard at work on launching Made Here, he hasn’t slowed down in his acting career. Eastwood has multiple projects coming up, including the Afghanistan war drama The Outpost with Orlando Bloom, and the crime thriller The Manuscript, where he’ll star alongside Oscar winner Jamie Foxx for director Nick Cassavettes.


Scott Eastwood on Flying Helicopters and His Favorite Adventures in the United States

While you wait for the Made Here launch, you can read up on Eastwood’s previous cover story, where he told us about the time he took a road trip through the Skeleton Coast in Namibia, the time he almost crashed in a helicopter on a snowboarding trip in the Canadian Rockies, and the time he was held down by a massive wave in Australia. Yeah, Eastwood knows how to have an adventure.

The collection is set to launch in August 2019 and customers can get a head start by signing up on the Made Here website to get 10-percent off on launch day. See more at the Made Here site.
