Ufc Fight Night 49 Results: Jordan Mein Finishes Mike Pyle In The First Round – Yahoo Sports

That’s because he landed a hard left hand just over one minute into the bout that put Pyle down on the mat. He followed up with a number of hard shots and that was all she wrote. Just like that, the Strikeforce import has built a winning streak in impressive fashion. In the post-fight interview, he told Jon Anik he wanted a finish like the one he delivered because he wants to keep fighting in the “main and co-main event slots. That’s where I belong.” With finishes like this, who is going to argue that?

Has hip-hop successfully infiltrated the fashion industry as rapper A$AP Rocky and model girlfriend Chanel Iman land editorial spread in Vogue magazine? | TheCelebrityCafe.com

According to ABC News West’s rant at the Wireless Music Festival in July targeted Nike and the Gucci group for trying to marginalize him because he was a black entertainer. Surprisingly, West’s rant came after he and his then fiancee Kim Kardashian snatched the April 2014 cover of Vogue. Many high-fashion critics had much to say about having an egotistical rapper and reality star donning the cover of the fashion bible. However, it appears Editor-in-chief Anna Wintor saw the need to move forward with the changing culture of fashion. The Kimye appearance in Vogue opened up the floodgates for more rapper-model couples. This week a few pictures from the September 2014 issue of Vogue have surfaced online via Twitter.

Revolution 1, Chivas USA 0 – Lee Nguyen Puts New England Back In The Win Column – Yahoo Sports

After a lackluster first half by both teams and despite the Revolution controlling much of the possession, the second half started off with a caution to A.J. Soares for persistent infringement. Soares committed his fourth foul of the game in the 48th minute against Erick Torres prompting center referee David Gantar to issue the first caution. Gantar would go back to his yellow card minutes later, when internet Chivas defender Tony Lochhead slid through Charlie Davies in the 53rd minute. It was a heavy challenge that caught Davies in the ankle and drew some protests for a straight red card although Gantar optioned for just the caution. But the Revs were still dominating the possession and putting pressure on Dan Kennedy ‘s net, including Daigo Kobayashi’s effort that just went over the bar in the 54th, and the Revs found the breakthrough in the 56th minute. Diego Fagundez switched the attack to Kelyn Rowe on the right side, and Rowe found Daigo Kobayashi on a first touch and Daigo tried to play an nifty one-two with a backheel.

Success Is In The Bag For One South Portland Fashion Startup — Living — Bangor Daily News — Bdn Maine

I was in a marine store, and the idea came to me, Harris said. I love sewing because you can take scraps and make something. Setting up in a small storefront in South Portlands Knightville neighborhood in January gave her the courage to weigh anchor. Inside her nautical studio, she sews bags, sells custom tees and debuts new items, including weather-proof pillows made of the same material and stamped with an anchor. All are boat friendly. I always wanted to start my own business, said Harris, who is still catching up with her lightning-quick success. Now when I go out in Portland and I see six people with my bags I say, Oh my God. Why are bait bags netting so much business? Anything Maine-made and nautical is hot right now, so Ive got that on my side. And the candy colors of these style confections pop on Instagram, a free and visual social media channel central to her success.

I see you on TV, I like the cut, where can I get a suit like that for my boyfriend? [Guys] just dont know where to find certain things or how to find them, and what I wanted to do in this collection was to make it pretty easy and one-stop and turnkey. So once a guy has got that perfect suit, whats the key to making it work? Its pretty simple, says Seacrest: Own it. Put it on, stand outside, go on that first date or first meeting and own it. I think thats most important, to have that confidence that it looks good on you. Will you shop Ryan Seacrest Distinction (or buy it for your dude)?

3 Unusual Ways Smart Tech Meets Fashion – Yahoo Finance

President Obama explained it best during a 2012 interview with Vanity Fair when he revealed why he only wears gray or blue suits : I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what Im eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make. Experts explain that your pool of decision-making energy is limited , and eventually, as your willpower depletes with each new decision you make, you’re more likely to either act impulsively or do nothing. Steve Jobs seemed to have cottoned on to the beauty of simplicity–didn’t he wear the same blue jeans and black polo neck daily?–and he was wildly successful. So maybe less variety isn’t such a bad thing.

The New Habit Challenge: Wear The Same Clothes Every Day | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

Basically, a wearer can use the garment to connect to the social networkthrough a series of “natural gestures” instead of a typical app. For instance, a sensor is integrated into the hood that allows wearers to send and receive messages by lifting the hood up or down. Wearers can “customize their messages, assign them to groups of friends and even manage many different types of messages based on where you are, who you’re pinging, or what your mood is.” If a friend sends a message, the wearer will feel a haptic tap on his or her shoulder. Related: This Handy Gadget Is Like Google Glass For Your Car And what’s up with that zig-zagging design on the left and right panels? It’s actually Ping’s circuitry. “Rather than hide the technology completely, the design of the garment embraces it and explodes aspects of the functionality as the aesthetics of the garment. In this case, function truly does meet fashion,” Electricfoxy says on its site. Seems interesting, but I’m not sure how that shoes online would work in real-world applications.
