MALIA MANUEL × G-SHOCK

G-SHOCK PARTNERS WITH STAR SUFER MALIA MANUEL FOR SECOND VIDEO IN “24 HOURS OF TOUGHNESS” SERIES

New Campaign Centers Around Powerful Women Pushing the Boundaries of Time

Casio G-SHOCK recently launched the second of three videos in its powerful “24 Hours of Toughness” series, a campaign centered around influential women in the creative space and how they operate outside of the traditional 9 to 5.

Featuring Kauai, Hawaii native and female surf legend Malia Manuel, the campaign offers a behind-the-scenes look at Malia’s life on and off the board. Malia, who is a G-SHOCK ambassador, also became the youngest surfer ever to win the U.S. Open of Surfing at the age of 14.

“I love what I do and being able to inspire young female athletes,” said Malia. “As someone who doesn’t operate within the traditional 9 to 5, the campaign presented an exciting opportunity for me to showcase my everyday life and the place I love most.”

Malia’s video can be viewed in its entirety here: HERE.

“We’re excited to continue sharing inspirational stories through our campaign,” said David Johnson, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “There are so many untraditional ways to achieve success and the women in our campaign don’t let the traditional boundaries of time stop them.”

In addition to showcasing Malia’s commitment to her sport, the new video also introduces the latest women’s series – the GMAB800. Designed with the active, modern woman in mind, the new watches feature several fitness-focused functions useful for daily health management and are the first women’s collection offering Bluetooth connectivity to measure the number of steps, the walking or running pace, and calories burned.

The GMAB800 collection retails for $120 each and are available for purchase at select G-SHOCK retailers including Macy’s, G-SHOCK Soho Store, and gshock.com.

Paul Basagoitia HBO Documentary

By Vaughn Lowery

At the ripe age of 10, Paul Basagoitia has been one of the top mountain bikers in the world. Fast forward a decade or so later, he became one of the first MTB athletes to complete a backflip on natural terrain. Nevertheless, on October 16, 2015, during a run at the Red Bull Rampage his bike slip during his set and caused him to tumble down the face of a mountain, resulting in a spinal cord injury. This intimate documentary exhibits his struggle to overcome one of the most serious injuries an athlete has to endure. Intercut with other patients and their stories, this motion picture is heartbreaking and delves deep into the mental psyche of those who experience such tragedy. Approximately 250,000 people per year injure their spines and only have a 5% chance of recovery. Mr. B’s personal journey is brutally honest and vulnerable. By far one of the best told stories of 2019. Be prepared to be torn between life and the inability to follow what makes you happy – your passion.

Any One Of Us debuts Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 9pm on HBO.

The Best Sporting Events for Traveling to in 2020

Author: Robert Bell

Mixing sport and travel is a fantastic way to see the world. If you want to see the best action that the world has to offer, then where do you need to head to in 2020?

The following are a few of the events that you might want to see. They offer terrific sporting spectacles, as well as perhaps providing you with an incentive to visit interesting new places.

Superbowl 2020, Miami Gardens, Florida

We don’t yet know which teams will be competing in Superbowl LIV. Yet, we do know that it will be held on February 2, 2020, in the setting of Miami Gardens, Florida. This will be the sixth time that this football game is held in this stadium, but the first time in 10 years.

You can already start planning your Superbowl 2020 trip before the competing teams are decided, as tickets can now be bought online. Keen football fans will know that New England Patriots and Kansa City Chiefs are already among the favorites to win this event, according to the latest Super Bowl odds.

While you are in Florida, you can enjoy natural attractions such as Oleta River State Park, Greynolds Park, and Miramar Pineland Park. Of course, the wonderful beaches and restaurants are also pretty tempting there.

2020 Summer Olympics, Tokyo

When it comes to giant sporting events, there is nothing quite like the Summer Olympics. The 2020 event is officially known as the Games of the XXXII Olympiad and is set to be a spectacular affair.

There are going to be some interesting new events added to the Olympic roster here, including 3×3 basketball, Madison cycling, and freestyle BMX, as well as surfing and skateboarding. The Japanese authorities are building 11 new venues for the event, with the National Stadium in Tokyo being the main venue. Most of the action will take place within a few kilometers of the Olympic village.

You won’t want to miss visiting the Japanese capital without sampling some of the other amazing things to do in this city. From the panoramic views from the Tokyo Skytree observation deck to the Sensō-ji, which is the oldest temple in the city, to the Imperial Palace, this is a place where you will discover unique attractions.

Champions League Final, Istanbul

The biggest prize in European club soccer will be at stake when two teams compete in the UEFA Champions League final in Turkey. The setting will be the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, which is where Liverpool famously came back from 0-3 to dramatically win the trophy from Milan in 2005.

This stadium has a 76,761, all-seated capacity and is located on the western, European side of the city. It was built as part of Turkey’s bid for the 2008 Summer Olympics and is renowned for both its size and the intense atmosphere generated inside it.

Before or after the game, there is plenty to explore in this historic city that straddles Europe and Asia. Hagi Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace Museum are all outstanding. However, for many visitors it is wandering through the mammoth Grand Bazaar that is their lingering memory of Istanbul.

Winter X Games, Calgary

The Winter X Games will be held in Calgary from 2020 through to 2022. This extreme sports event is expected to bring some 75,000 spectators to the Canadian city each of those years. They will also be hosting shows and special events while the games are going on.

Calgary was host to the 1998 Winter Olympics and has held many sporting events since then. If you are looking for something to do away from the games, then the local zoo and Calgary Tower, with a revolving restaurant at the top, are among the big attractions.

No matter what kind of sport you like, combining it with a new travel experience will let you get an unforgettable trip.

Stress Awareness Month: Alleviating Stress and Working Out

Natalie Durand-Bush, PhD, CMPC

Association for Applied Sport Psychology Executive Board Member

Full Professor, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada

Co-Founder, Canadian Centre for Mental Health, Ottawa, Canada

Recovery plays a vital role in sport. It is necessary to prevent underperformance, overtraining, burnout, injuries, and illness. This is mainly due to the fact that athletes are subjected to ongoing physical and mental stressors while training in order to stretch their performance limits. However, it is important to balance such stressors with appropriate rest and recovery through the use of periodized approaches. Periodization programs are designed and implemented in sport to maximize the effects of physical and mental training over predetermined training cycles by varying key training variables such as volume and intensity.

The aim of these programs is to maximize long-term athlete development and peak performance during targeted competitions within identified periods or ‘mesocycles’ (e.g., hockey season, Olympic quadrennial). Each mesocycle consists of preparatory (e.g., off-season and pre-competitive season), competitive (e.g., regular competitive season), peaking (e.g., playoffs, national championship), and recovery (e.g., post-competition period prior to off-season training) periods or ‘microcycles’ that vary in length based on training objectives, athletes’ needs, and the amount of time available between peaking events. Issues often arise when periodization protocols are mismanaged and training responses are not properly monitored. For example, peaking may not occur if athletes do not respect built-in recovery activities (e.g., days off, sleep routine, naps, limited social media) as a result of fearing they will fall behind their competitors. Also, coaches who insufficiently pay attention to warning signs during high-intensity periods in which athletes require more time to physically and mentally recover can jeopardize athletes’ performance and health. The costs of poor or failed monitoring could be injury or illness, including low mental health and the onset of mental illness.

Athletes’ mental health reflects their psychological, emotional, and social well-being. Athletes who are mentally healthy are able to feel, think, and act in ways allowing them to work productively, reach their full potential and goals, enjoy life, contribute to their community, and cope with normal daily stressors. When stressors (e.g., physical, psychological) exceed athletes’ internal (e.g., resilience strategies) and external (e.g., parental and coaching support) coping resources, it can deplete them and lead to significant distress and impaired functioning. In other words, it can exacerbate an existing mental illness or trigger a new one. Symptoms to which coaches should pay attention when working with athletes include any significant changes in eating and sleeping patterns, isolation from others, unusual low energy/stamina, intense mood swings, decreased enjoyment and concentration, feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness, inexplicable pain, and difficulties performing daily tasks, to name a few. Coaches noticing such changes in athletes should intervene, particularly if these changes last more than two weeks.

This entails having a private, respectful, and empathetic conversation with struggling athletes by (a) asking them specific questions regarding observed changes (e.g., “I have noticed that you look more tired and withdrawn than usual, are you struggling at the moment?”), (b) offering support (e.g., “Your mental health is important to me, what can I do to help you recover and regain your strength?”), and (c) referring them to an appropriate mental health care provider if necessary (e.g., “I’m not a mental health expert but I am seeing signs that concern me; our team has access to a mental health practitioner and I’d like you to see this person to make sure you have the resources you need to cope and get back to your normal self”). Given the crucial role of rest and recovery in the management of both athletic performance and mental health, coaches should discuss with any struggling athletes the benefits of adding recovery periods in their training program or of taking a complete break to prioritize and help them restore their mental health.

Pirelli × Carl Lewis

“Power is nothing without control” is the slogan that for exactly 25 years has accompanied the Pirelli brand throughout the world. The company is thus dedicating its 2018 Annual Report to this famous catch phrase, celebrating its anniversary with stories by three international writers, a video and a series of photographic images which propose a few of its many possible interpretations.

The fortunate launch of the ‘Power is nothing without control’ campaign depicted by Carl Lewis, photographed by Annie Leibowitz, in the classic position of a sprinter in the starting blocks while wearing high-heeled red shoes – an image which has become legendary. The photograph, taken in Texas in 1994 and an icon of advertising creativity, conveys a message that has lasted through the years because it is rooted in the product, the tire, and at the same time able to go beyond the limits of the material: in a car, as in life, “power is nothing without control”. A timeless reflection whose interpretations are inexhaustible because it has left it to the men and women of every era to find a point of balance between two seemingly contradictory elements.

This exercise in synthesis also involves the three American authors involved in the Pirelli’s 2018 Annual Report – Adam Greenfield, Lisa Halliday and J.R. Moehringer – with each proposing a personal interpretation of power and control in spheres also related to Pirelli: technology, sport and culture.

For Adam Greenfield, in a piece centered on technology, “the distinction between power and control ranks among the central challenges of our time. Our Promethean technologies offer us more and more power by the day, but the plain fact is that we haven’t yet learned how to control them.”

J.R. Moehringer, in his story dedicated to sport, writes: “We all make the mistake now and then of thinking the great athletes, actors, painters, doctors, entrepreneurs, et al., are gifted with special powers. In fact everyone has special powers. The ones who succeed are the ones who find ways of achieving durable, consistent control over their powers.

In “Hurrying Slowly”, a reflection on art and culture, Lisa Halliday states: “Art is a journey, a distance traveled by the consciousness. This is true for both artist and viewer, performer and audience, writer and reader. The power that propels such a journey is nothing without control because control is what harnesses artistic potential and directs it.

A video made by the Young&Rubicam agency, which 25 years ago came up with the Carl Lewis campaign, accompanies the three authors’ works. It depicts power as an interior force that pushes man to always go beyond and control as an indispensable factor in the achievement of any goal. The concepts contained in the video are also illustrated through a series of photographs that enrich the print version of the Annual Report.

“Power is nothing without control”: a story a quarter of a century old

The photograph of Carl Lewis with the headline “Power is nothing without control” opened the way for an advertising campaign that was so successful that to this day it continues to identify Pirelli.

Following on from Annie Leibowitz’s photograph, the following year Gerard di Thame directed a TV commercial in Carl Lewis runs a mad race full of special effects across the New York skyline. The final race’s images reveal the secret: the sole of Carl Lewis’s foot engraved with the tread pattern the Pirelli P6000 tire.

Pirelli entrusted its image to Carl Lewis until 1996. The following year, the French athlete Marie-José Pérec, then the fastest woman in the world, takes his place. The Pirelli commercial is set in a place of ice and lava with sea monsters, molten flows and other dangers from which the sprinter manages to escape once again wearing the tread of a Pirelli tire.

Then, 1998 was the year of Ronaldo, whose image from behind on the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro becomes an instant icon even outside the advertising world.

Pirelli Annual Report from culture to innovation

Since 2010, Pirelli’s Annual Report has undergone a transformation – thanks to the contribution of personalities from the worlds of art and culture of international standing – from “simple” reports to communication tools able to recount through different forms a year of company life. The 2010 Annual, for example, was illustrated with student photographs, inspired by the theme of sustainability, from Naba di Milano, while the following year, Pirelli’s Annual Report was enhanced with 18 illustrations by the graphic artist Stefan Glerum. In 2012, New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly enriched the Annual Report and in 2013, instead, the author and screenplay writer Hanif Kureishi engaged ten young international talents to rework the idea of the “wheel” in the“Spinning the Wheel” project. In 2014, “street art” took centre stage in Pirelli’s Integrated Annual Report, with works from Brazil’s Marina Zumi, Germany’s Dome and Russia’s Alexey Luka, assembled into a single pyramid shaped display at Pirelli HangarBicocca. The next year Pirelli called upon the Russian artist Pokras Lampas, an exponent of modern calligraphy, to interpret the value of being “unique” through two things: handwriting and fingerprints. The volume was entitled “Every Mark is Unique”. In 2017, in conclusion, Pirelli wanted to use the Annual Report to tell the story of the company’s digital transformation in “Data meets passion”, flanking Pirelli’s own story with those of those of five 4.0 artisans who used digital technologies to grow their companies. The volume’s artistic and literary content was the work of artist Emiliano Ponzi and three internationally recognized writers: Mohsin Hamid, Tom McCarthy and Ted Chiang.

Holiday Destinations of Influential Women

8 Dream Holiday Destinations of Influential Women

Everybody needs to get away from time to time. And the rich and powerful are no exception! In fact, the stress and responsibility of holding an influential position and being constantly in the public eye can make the idea of a holiday even more appealing.

MyLateDeals has researched where the world’s most powerful women choose to go when they finally get a chance to let off some steam.

Queen Elizabeth II

You might think being the longest-reigning Queen of England would be an easy ride. But while Her Majesty may not have to worry about paying the bills each month, she has dealt admirably with personal trauma and national crises over the past seven decades – and remained adored by the national and international public the whole time.

Of course, no British royal is short of a holiday home or two. For Queen Elizabeth, 50,000 acres of moors, forests, and farmland at Balmoral Castle in Scotland provide both privacy and fresh air away from London life.

“I think Granny is the most happy there,” revealed Princess Eugenie a few years back. “I think she really, really loves the Highlands.”

Madonna

The Queen of Pop is the best selling female recording artist of all time and her influence on today’s music culture is inestimable. But rising to the top of the industry wasn’t easy – especially in the sexist atmosphere of the 1980s: “I’m tough, I’m ambitious and I know exactly what I want,” explains Madge. “If that makes me a bitch, okay.”

Madonna may be the archetypal urban woman, but when it’s time to get away nothing less than paradise will do. Soneva Fushi, an idyllic island in the Maldives, is the artist’s “definition of heaven – [a place for] riding bikes in the moonlight and watching movies under a starlit sky.”

With visitors able to reserve their own stretch of sun-baked sand far from the 24-hour news cycle, Soneva Fushi is a place where Madonna needn’t worry about reading, or becoming, hot gossip.

Oprah Winfrey

Talk show host, motivational speaker, philanthropist… president? Such are Oprah Winfrey’s levels of empathy and talent, it’s impossible to rule out quite what she’ll do next. And that’s just what you see on the surface: Winfrey’s business acumen is so sharp that they even teach college courses about it.

Like the Queen of England, Winfrey has an impressive property portfolio and holiday homes to spare. Her first choice destination is her ranch on Maui, Hawaii, where landscape and spirituality walk hand-in-hand: “The real substance and value of being in Hawaii is the unspoken “spirit” of the people and the surroundings,” she writes. “Hawaiians understand that the soul of the land is what matters.”

And what does a talk show host talk about on her time off? “We chat, laugh and rate the sunsets according to their magnificence.”

Pink

While her closest competitors embraced the hyper-sexualisation of early-noughties pop culture, Pink showed the world that it’s possible to stay true to who you are and still make a success of yourself. She has been a true ‘mainstream alternative’ in an age of mass production.

The singer and songwriter finds escape through a vastly different culture: that of the Indonesian island of Bali. She relaxes and has fun with her kids by attending cooking classes, chilling on the beach, and taking in traditional dance and music shows.

“Thank you to the people and the ocean and the energy of Bali,” Pink effuses on Instagram. “We love you.”

Beyoncé

They say the way to Carnegie hall is practice. For Beyoncé, building the stamina to blast stadium audiences with her formidable voice was apparently a matter of running around the block singing at the top of her voice by way of ‘working out’ in her youth. Her talent and hard work have won her 22 Grammy awards and a unique position in 21st-century western culture.

It’s Europe for Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z when they want a break from the intensity of American living. The French Riviera (including Monaco, Cannes, and St. Tropez) may not be as remote as Bali or Soneva Fushi, but combining the deluxe privacy of a mega-yacht with the bustle and glamour of dining out along the Côte d’Azur seems to do it for the Knowleses.

Meghan Markle

Markle has brought a touch of reality to the royal family, and is becoming an important ambassador not just in diplomatic circles but between everyday people and the British elite. But even before she wooed Prince Harry, sixth in line to the throne, Markle was celebrated both for her acting and for her political activism.

So it’s no wonder her downtime with Harry is often spent in Africa, the continent where the couple pursue a great deal of charitable work. They keep things relatively real at the £580/night Mapula Lodge in Okavango Delta, Botswana, where thatched huts and outdoor showers overlook a stunning lagoon.

“I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana,” said Harry of one of their early ‘dates.’ “We camped out with each other under the stars.”

Michelle Obama

‘First Lady’ was never a title that Michelle Obama was going to accept lightly. The Princeton and Harvard graduate worked as a lawyer and in prominent government positions before cutting back to raise her daughters and become an ambassador for human dignity and justice alongside her husband.

Obama’s holiday plans are as unpretentious as you would expect. Every year, she and her family arrive on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, where the Obamas cycle, play tennis, eat ice-cream, and spend quality time with their dogs, Sunny and Bo.

It’s more about wholesomeness than glamour – but you can be sure Obama returns to her daily routine refreshed and inspired.

Serena Williams

Some say Williams is the greatest female tennis player of all time. But the consensus errs towards her in fact being the greatest athlete of all time, regardless of gender. An astonishing 23 Grand Slam titles – including winning the Australian Open while two months pregnant – would be inspirational enough even if you didn’t consider the extent to which she’s set herself ahead of her rivals and the adversity she’s overcome to get there.

Romantic Rome is Williams’ destination of choice. She met her husband there while breakfasting with friends at the Cavalieri Hotel in 2015; he proposed to her on the same spot a year later.

As she told Traveller: “Rome is one of my favourite cities in the world! It’s such a magical place and I have so many wonderful memories there.”

Want to know which holiday destination is right for you? MyLateDeals has created  a quiz to determine which holiday and inspirational woman you have the most in common with, so prepare to find out.

Reebok x JJ Watt Unveil JJ II

With pre-season underway and kickoff quickly approaching on September 9th, football season is right around the corner. As we gear up for the season, I’m sharing an exciting announcement with Reebok x J.J. Watt.

Today, Reebok x J.J. Watt announced the newest iteration of the iconic JJ II training shoe, the Reebok JJ II Clean Slate Pack. After being off the field for almost two full seasons, 2018 represents a fresh start for Watt on the field, and the Reebok JJ II Clean Slate pack directly taps into this mentality, embodying the physical and mental toughness it takes to mount this type of comeback.

This new video from JJ and Reebok, linked here, dives into Watt’s resiliency and the Clean Slate Pack’s representation of his comeback.

The shoe ties directly into Watt’s comeback through key features:

  • Triple-White represents the fresh, clean start this year represents to Watt after coming back from two years in a row of difficult injuries
  • Silver metallic details signify the self-reflection that comes with Watt’s comeback
  • Mental and physical rebuilding is represented in the construction tape aesthetic in the sock liner
  • Written on the sock liner is the quote “NEVER LET A STUMBLE IN THE ROAD BE THE END OF THE JOURNEY” – a phrase that represents the work, the sacrifice and all the difficult days of rehabbing that Watt overcame to get back on the field where he is today

The JJ II Clean Slate Pack is available on Thursday, August 16th, for $99 on Reebok.com.

The Reebok JJ II is the ultimate training shoe for functional movements, featuring a Lenoweave upper to be more breathable and durable, a redesigned outsole to promote increased traction across multiple surfaces, and LiquidFoam technology, allowing for security and comfort.

QUOTES FROM JJ WATT:

We all face adversity at some point or another in our lives. This shoe was designed as a reminder to never give up and always fight to put your best foot forward. Great days lie ahead.

I received the first prototype of this design approximately four months ago and have worn it every day since, throughout the rehab and training process. It is a daily reminder to be stronger than whatever is trying to bring you down and to overcome any adversity that may lie in your path.“

MORE ABOUT THE REEBOK JJ II

The JJ II is the latest training shoe forged between global fitness leader Reebok and the superstar athlete.

The JJ II was built from the ground up to provide the versatility to attack any training session with the same maximal intensity as Watt himself. The shoe features a Lenoweave upper to be more breathable and durable, a redesigned outsole to promote increased traction across multiple surfaces, and LiquidFoam technology, allowing for security and comfort.

The JJ II also pushes the boundaries of technical innovation to withstand Watt’s intense workout regimen, with cutting-edge training features that include:

  • Stay grounded – full-length, high-performance rubber outsole for ultimate traction
  • No holding back – Low-cut design for freedom of movement
  • Brace for impact – Liquidfoam technology cushions and stabilizes for explosive moves
