Camaro ZL1 Convertible

by Tara McDonough x Vaughn Lowery

2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible

At the starting price of $67,500 the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible combines a beautiful exterior with the amenities and power to back it up. With a roof that folds down in under 20 seconds and the ability to go from 0-60 MPH in 3.5 seconds, any average drive can turn into a carefree cruise in the sun or the last lap of the Daytona 500. The Camaro ZL1 convertible is the high-speed drop-top to beat.

PERFORMANCE

The Camaro owes its incredible velocity to its 6.2L engine and supercharged V8. The fast-shifting model boasts a 650 hp and 650 lb.-ft of torque, the option of standard six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic, and a maximum speed of 195 MPH. Brembo performance brakes ensure that even the fastest rides can be kept under control. Working hand in hand with the automatic transition are magnetic ride control, limited slip differential and exhaust dual mode performance. Custom Launch Control allows for optimized acceleration and Line Lock to lock the Camaro’s front wheels and enable the rear wheels to spin for maximum grip. The annual fuel cost comes out to $2,800 at 6.2 gallons per 100 miles and 16 MPG combined city and highway performance. The exhaust notes are music to the ears of any car enthusiast, mimicking the sounds of thunder and lightning. The quad exhaust can be compared to the Jaguar F Type SVR, but the Camaro comes in first place. Any driver will feel like a winner in this drag-race style convertible.

EXTERIOR

The Camaro ragtop has a hard tonneau top that reclines by remote activation for easy access and a frame that sits low, comparable to the Lamborghini Huracán. Aerodynamic enhancements like a front air dam, splitter and a carbon fiber hood extractor, along with a carbon fiber rear wing, help reduce lift and increase downforce to keep ZL1 glued to the track. The exterior is equipped with HD headlamps and tail lamps with LED signature and 20” wheels made of forged aluminum for a clean and forceful look. The styling screams power and appears much more refined than its predecessors.The rear end adopts fresh taillights and a revised bumper.

INTERIOR

Despite its roaring engine, the Camaro’s cabin has the quietest interior noise which pairs comfortably with Recaro leather trimmed bucket seats and suede seat inserts. The momentum and performance of the car pulls drivers in and the race inspired Recaro seats keep them there, snugly in place for a wild ride. The styling and refinements are reminiscent of German auto options. Front seats can be heated and ventilated and cuff the body tight on fast paced drives.

SAFETY

The Camaro not only comes equipped for speed, but for safety as well. It’s Stabilitrak stability control includes traction control combined with rear cross traffic alert, park assist and side blind zone alert. Owners are not only safe from driving mishaps, but battery rundown and theft as well.

TECHNOLOGY

Besides coming supplied with standard options such as voice recognition, Apple carplay, 4G LTE wifi hotspot and wireless phone charging, the Camaro includes an enhanced Performance Data Recorder. With the Data Recorder drivers are able to view real-time performance data in order to analyze technique and improve driving abilities. Any driver can train themselves for professional racing. Other notable additions include Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 software, newly standard forward-collision warning and one of the best Bose sound systems in its class. If the noise cancelling cabin didn’t drown out the Camaro’s thunderous motor, then the concert-like sound experience would definitely do the trick.

The Camaro Convertible ZL1, with its bold rear styling, upgraded technology and insane performance, is equally at home on the road, track or drag strip.

360 Magazine × G-Shock

By Bob Cal

Partnering with the Nassau Fire Department, G-Shock hosted an exclusive ‘Train Like a Firefighter’ event to unveil their latest product—the Mudmaster. 360 Magazine, along with a dozen other editors and photographers, attended this one-day class to gain first-hand experience with G-Shock’s high performance watch.

Arriving at G-Shock’s Soho location in Manhattan, the media personnel were transported to the Nassau County Fire Department in Long Island—and boy were they in for an adrenaline rush! Each attendee was gifted a G-Shock Mudmaster watch to test during this day of high intensity classes instructed by certified firefighting teachers. The students for the day were clad head to toe in heavy, authentic fire fighting gear, doing everything from traversing a pitch black building, busting out of a trapped room and sliding down the rope of a second floor window– all while wearing their G-Shock Mudmaster watch. The media guests were both physically and mentally tested.

Living up to its name, the mud resistant Mudmaster watch was like a diamond through every firefighting drill. Never did it scratch or catch dirt through contact with debris. Its light weight maximizes comfort and ease without comprising durability and longevity. The product’s other features include a digital compass, LED lights and water resistance. It is an all around visually elegant performance accessory.

Circle V Ranch Receives $16,000 of Upgrades

Yes, you heard it right. Circle V Ranch Camp Receives $16,000 of New LED Lighting & Refrigeration Upgrades Via Santa Barbara County Energy Watch Partnership & Santa Maria Chamber Grant.

The annual cost savings estimated at $4,442 for the Non-profit Camp Rebuilding from 2017 Whittier Wildfire.

Below you can see the before and after shots to notice the striking difference that the upgrades had accomplished:

The difference is that in the first picture, original florescent lights are present that results in an unpleasant yellow-colored atmosphere. The Camp’s 16 guest cabins shown to hold the new LED lights are Camp Director Ray Lopez; Energy Watch Project Liaison & Camp Volunteer Tony Yanez; Staples Energy Specialist Norman Knowles and SBCEWP Program Manager Dave Cross (left to right).

After the LED lights replace them, the second picture reveals a lighting difference as the yellow-colored atmosphere is no longer present, but in fact, has everything appear in a brighter tone. The members in the second photo are Project Liaison & Camp Volunteer Tony Yanez; Camp Director Ray Lopez; Staples Energy Program Manager Tori Bennett; Staples Energy Specialist Norman Knowles; SoCalGas Senior Account Executive Frank Mateo; SoCalGas Program Manager Jeff Lawler and SBCEWP Program Manager Dave Cross (left to right).

 

Santa Barbara County, California–This summer, Circle V Ranch Camp & Retreat Center received $16,000 of new LED lighting and refrigeration upgrades with custom installation through the Santa Barbara County Energy Watch Partnership (SBCEWP). This also included a $6,000 grant from Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce as well as receiving $4,000 from a private donor. The Energy Watch Partnership is a program funded by PG&E and SoCalGas with the goal of significantly reducing energy use and promoting sustainable practices–Mother Nature would definitely be proud of this. The annual estimated cost savings are $4,442 equaling 30,851 kWh of energy saved.

“We are thrilled to have new LED lighting throughout our entire facility and refrigeration upgrades now! This year-long project was spear-headed by Camp volunteer Tony Yanez of Santa Ynez, who has worked with an incredible team put together by the Partnership not only to fund the $16,000 project but also to install it so professionally. We are grateful to the Partnership for contributing $6,000; the Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce for their $6,000 grant as well as $4,000 from a private donor to make this entire project a reality. It really means so much as we continue rebuilding Circle V after the damages we had during the 2017 Whittier wildfire,” says Ray Lopez.

“Helping Circle V Ranch Camp reduce their energy costs more than $4,400 per year especially as they rebuild from the Whittier fire makes this particular project even more important. Many thanks to the great crew from Staples Energy who did the assessment of all the Camp’s 16 guest cabins as well as the dining lodge, kitchen, office spaces, outbuildings and storage areas; then did all the custom installation over the course of this summer,” adds Dave Cross, program manager for the SBCEWP.

To gain some more knowledge about St. Vincent de Paul Circle V Ranch Camp & Retreat Center, here are some interesting facts to feed your brain.

  • It was founded in 1945 by St. Vincent de Paul Los Angeles. The camp has been located across from Cachuma Lake in Santa Barbara County in the Los Padres National Forest on 30 acres since 1990.
  • Have kids and want to take them somewhere? During the summer, Circle V Ranch Camp sessions offer six days and five nights of traditional supervised fun for boys and girls ages 7-13 years and leadership training for ages 14-17 years. Campers enjoy activities including archery, arts & crafts, hiking, swimming in the pool, learning about nature, reading skills, painting, photography, playing baseball, basketball, ping pong, foosball, soccer, miniature golf and of course, campfires, skits and singing. This is basically heaven for your children. Campers stay in wood cabins or traditional canvas tents. Three nutritious daily meals served family-style in the Dining Lodge are not only for food but also for camaraderie and fellowship.
  • In summer 2016, the camp hosted more than 1,000 children for this time-honored experience. During autumn, winter and spring, Circle V is available for rental to other non-profit groups and organizations welcoming more than 3,000 guests of all ages.

 

After closing due to damage during the Whittier Wildfire on July 8, 2017, Circle V continues to rebuild its water treatment facilities, Craft and Health cabins with a goal of reopening in 2019.

“impulses, restraints, tones”

“impulses, restraints, tones” New Compositions by Hannah Quinlivan

Opening Reception: March 1, 2018, 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: March 1 – April 20, 2018

February 16, 2018 (New York, NY) – JanKossen Contemporary is pleased to present impulses, restraints, tones an exhibition by Australian contemporary artist, Hannah Quinlivan. impulses, restraints, tones is the artist’s first exhibition in New York and will be on view from March 1 – April 20, 2018 with an opening reception on March 1 from 6-8pm.

Best known for her work within the movement of experimental drawing, Quinlivan expands upon the medium to create drawings that employ wire, steel, salt, yarn, shadow, and LED light, constantly evolving and dissecting the elements of a drawing to investigate the confines of the line itself. Twisted wire structures are the basis for her shadow drawings, which Quinlivan later develops further into sculptures; 2D drawings turn into 3D drawings, that are then turned back into 2D drawings. With a deep commitment to the exploration of and innate response to her materials, Quinlivan composes lyrical artworks that stitch together a response to the passing of time. Each element of the work is endlessly translated into an infinite looping web; traveling through our consciousness and drawing attention to the subjectivity of the phenomena of recollection and forgetting.

impulses, restraints, tones exhibits brand new “Spatial Drawings,” as well as two delicate, yet powerful, site-specific and interactive installations that respond to the gallery space and flux of bodies within it. The well-known “Spatial Drawings” walk the line between sculptural weaving and graphic mark making and explores concepts of temporal reality and memory. Quinlivan’s “Spatial Drawings” performance develops from wire armatures suspended from the ceiling. The shadows of these wire armatures are the basis for Quinlivan’s live and in-person crystalline salt drawings that will be developed over the course of three weeks during exhibition.

This work, shown for the first time in New York City, forms part of a series of site-specific ephemeral drawings Quinlivan has been making in Cambridge, Berlin, Hong Kong, Australia, and Colorado from since 2016.

Curator Marguerite Brown, explains “Linear threads and their manipulation have for millennia been symbolically connected to notions of time. The Moirai of ancient Greek mythology, also known at the Fates, were three goddesses who through the act of spinning thread with distaff and spindle, controlled the life of every person from birth to death, when their thread was abruptly cut. Similar female deities exist in Roman, Norse and Slavic mythologies, where thread is consistently wielded as a manifestation of destiny. As such, a simple strand and the way it is stretched, allotted and truncated, became an ancient way of comprehending the movement of a human life through time.”

REEBOK DISPLAYS INNOVATION IN FLEXWEAVE FOOTWEAR TECHNOLOGY WITH DESIGNER COLLABORATIONS

Reebok partners with Joe Doucet x Partners, Modla and Odd Matter in global creative co-op; using Reebok Flexweave to create imaginative fitness prototypes

 

Reebok has partnered with some of the most creative and innovative minds in the world to create a custom collection of fitness prototypes showcasing the power of Flexweave; the brand’s latest footwear innovation launching in Spring 2018.

 

In partnership with Joe Doucet x Partners (USA),  Modla (ENG) and Odd Matter (AN), the global fitness brand explored the potential of Flexweave. Flexweave boasts an open figure-8 construction that interlocks unlimited strands of fibers to create a single surface construction that is as strong as it is light. All designers worked with the version of the textile that will appear in the first-generation of Reebok Flexweave footwear, launching in 2018, made from chenille yarn.

 

Each designer was briefed to explore Flexweave’s limitless potential to create a unique product linking form and function, creating an aesthetic product utilizing the benefits of Flexweave whilst serving a fitness purpose. 

 

Reebok Flexweave prototype collection includes a pair of cutting-edge running gloves (Joe Doucet x Partners), a 3D printed altitude training mask (Modla) and a collection of light-weight, active sitting chairs (Odd Matter). Flexweave was developed by the Reebok Innovation Collective; a division championing the open-sourced pursuit of progression via innovation and partnerships that aims to push the boundaries of invention.

 

All prototypes can be viewed right now at http://www.reebok.com/en-US/campaigns/flexweave/

JOE DOUCET X PARTNERS –  New York City, United States

 

As a designer, entrepreneur, inventor and creative director, Joe Doucet is one of the most sought-after creative talents in America. Doucet designed a pair of Reebok Flexweave running gloves, form-fitting to the wearers hand, absorbing sweat as they run and lightweight for maximum comfort. The prototype was designed with the vision of being GPS-enabled, guiding the wearer through their run with flashing LED lights to indicate when to turn left or right.

 

“My inspiration was to capture the unique qualities of the Flexweave technology through something advantageous to an active lifestyle. The strength, flexibility and multi surface durability of Flexweave led me to the idea of a ‘smart’ running glove with a sleek, stylish silhouette. With the form crafted by Flexweave, the next stage of development would be GPS integration paving the way to a new frontier in wearable technology,” said Doucet.

ODD MATTER –  Rotterdam, The Netherlands

 

Odd Matter is a design studio driven by curiosity; researching, creating and exploring the world through its materials, processes and concept. The duo created a furniture series of ‘active sitting’ chairs; made through a combination of Reebok Flexweave and malleable EVA foam. 

 

“The Inspiration for the chair came from the Flexweave material itself. Whilst experimenting and playing with the fabric we were very intrigued by its behavior, structure and strength under tension. From there we wanted to create an object that played with that tension, a bit like the string of a bow, something in which the tension and strength is palpable,” said Els Woldhek, Odd Matter.

 

“Working with the Flexweave was very interesting, for instance when cutting it in different directions you straight away notice the differences between the fibers and the technical properties of the Flexweave. This in turn has made us really curious about everything else that is possible with the technology.”

MODLA – London, England

 

Co-founded by Jon Fidler and Richard Goddard, Modla is an artistic design house specializing in technological innovation, pushing the creative boundaries of 3D printing and digital 3D design. The pair created an entirely new Reebok Flexweave altitude training mask; 3D printing the valve technology across the nose and mouth, coupled with a Flexweave facial strap to comfortably wrap around the wearer’s face during intense training.

 

“I do a lot of high intensity training so I’m interested in how such equipment works, functions and can help improve performance. But we also saw the potential in the aesthetic of the Flexweave material, to create something which would blend with the mask and align with the contours of the wearer’s face.

As it happens, the Flexweave material provided even more benefit than just the aesthetic and was amazing to work with. It’s strong and durable, so perfect for a product that will get a lot of wear and tear; while also incredibly lightweight, making it breathable on the face for athletes when training.” said Fidler.

Short video on the partnership: https://youtu.be/RyqLZJCNMwc

 

“Flexweave is going to a major part of the Reebok DNA moving forward. With this creative and imaginative project, we’ve achieved exactly what we set out to do; demonstrate through collaborations in other fields what Flexweave can truly achieve when put to the ultimate test,” said James Woolard, Global Marketing Director, Reebok Running.

 

The Reebok Innovation Collection champions the pursuit of partnerships and innovations that will continue propelling the brand forward in spaces like fitness, fashion and footwear. Flexweave represents a huge step forward in footwear upper technology and brings with it a wave of anticipation and excitement for what the future holds for this brand”.

 

Reebok has extended the creative experience around Flexweave to its community, setting up an interactive digital experience on the Reebok Innovation Collective website called ‘Create Your Weave’; inviting you to construct your own virtual weave design and share it with friends.

 

The brand is also working with one of Savile Row’s finest tailors, Huntsman & Sons, to create a bespoke men’s suit made from Flexweave. Designed for Reebok Running ambassador and superstar WR Brandin Cooks, the experimental pursuit will be complete in Spring 2018. 

 

Flexweave is the latest innovation from the Reebok Innovation Collective, dedicated to creating new technologies, ideas, techniques and prototypes. For more information on the Reebok Innovation Collective please visit http://www.reebok.co.uk/en-GB/innovation_collective/
