Dancing With The Athletes

 

 

Dancing With The Stars kicked off its 26th season last night with a special all-athlete cast of contestants. Though I’m not a regular viewer of the show, I had to tune in to see how Olympians like figure skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nigasu; NCAA Women’s Basketball champ and buzzer beater Arike Ogunbowale; Olympic gold medal winning softball pitcher Jennie Finch Daigle; and the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar would fare on the dance floor.

We all know how competitive athletes are, and in fact professional and Olympic champions like Emmet Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, and Laurie Hernandez are just a few of the athletes to have won the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy bestowed upon each season’s champion. Sheer athleticism and competitive drive, however, does not necessarily translate into the footwork, rhythm, elegance, and star quality required to win this competition. While some surprised, like the I, Tonya redeemed Tonya Harding and Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer, others disappointed like two-time world series champ Johnny Damon and two-time gold medal snowboarder Jamie Andersen, who due to an abbreviated 4-week season were sent packing after the first dance.  Read More

Powering Life Off The Grid

 
CLOCKWISE TOP LEFT: CAMPING AND COOKING WITH BIOLITE CAMPSTOVE; BIOLITE BASECAMP STOVE; COOKING WITH BIOLITE HOMESTOVE IN UGANDA 

 

When Jonathan Cedar and Alex Drummond decided to build a better campstove, little did they know they would be finding a solution for a much larger health, environmental, and economic challenge. What started as an afterhours project for two campers and product developers evolved into a full time business and line of outdoor products with a much larger global mission called Biolite.

Half the planet lives in “energy poverty”, lacking safe and reliable ways to cook, charge, and light their lives. Imagine having an open campfire burning in your home every day. Three billion people cook over smoky open fires, which is the cause of 4 million premature deaths annually – more than HIV, TB, and malaria combined. These emissions are also the world’s leading carbon pollutants and source of climate change. Tired of having their campstoves run out of gas, Jonathan and Alex simply wanted to design a campstove that didn’t rely on fossil fuels. What they discovered serendipitously was that the needs of families around the world living in energy poverty were very much aligned with those of outdoor enthusiasts.

Biolite founders Jonathan Cedar and Alex Drummond met at Smart Design in New York City where they quickly bonded over their interest in sustainable design. Cedar told Style of Sport in an interview last week, “It wasn’t meant to be business. It was just meant to be to be fun. Let’s make a stove that doesn’t use gas.”  Their concept was a portable wood-burning stove able to utilize its own thermal energy to improve combustion. Using the technology of thermoelectric panels – the same concept as solar panels but for heat – a fan could power combustion with the energy generated from the heat of the fire. A self-sustaining cycle was the result: burning wood generates heat; heat generates electricity; electricity powers the fan; fan stokes the fire and makes more heat. And so it goes. The electricity generated could charge personal devices too. Read More
