UNICEF Kid Power!



UNICEF is the original kids-helping-kids organization. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t “Trick or Treat for UNICEF” as a kid, which was likely their first experience with charitable fundraising. Now in a new initiative, utilizing that same altruistic spirit, The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is launching UNICEF Kid Power, a program where under-active kids are incentivized to be more active by helping feed malnourished children — and it all happens with use of a fitness band.

Wearable technology has gotten charitable. The Kid Power Band is the world’s first “wearable-for-good™” Fitness band. Target, as the exclusive retailer, has teamed up with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help bring UNICEF Kid Power to households and students across the country.

Caryl Stern, President & CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, told Style Of Sport, “There are 2 reports… 1 in 4 American kids are underactive, and 1 in 4 kids around the world are malnourished to the point of starvation. You sit in your office and think, ‘How can it be that 1 in 4 kids is wasting what 1 in 4 kids is dying from. How do we marry that?’ Thus Kid Power was born.”

Here’s how it works: Kids wear the UNICEF Kid Power Band, a child-friendly fitness band they can use with the free Kid Power companion app. They go on missions through the app, learn about new cultures and earn points for completing activities and challenges. These points unlock therapeutic food packets that UNICEF delivers to severely malnourished children around the world. The more kids move, the more points they earn, and the more lives they save. Guests will be able to follow along on the UNICEF Kid Power website to track the total points earned, therapeutic food packets donated and impact made by kids all over the U.S.

The program already has a No. 1 fan: pop superstar P!nk (above) is the UNICEF Kid Power spokesperson. “Healthy living and positivity are at the center of my life,” she says. “With UNICEF Kid Power, kids and families can move and have fun, all while saving the lives of children around the world.”

Ian Ruhter: Images of the American West



Now on view at the Danziger Gallery in New York City are the photographs of Ian Ruhter, extraordinary large scale images of the American West. Ruhter’s photographs are a tribute to the great 19th century American landscape photographers, created as tintypes, a method of printing popular in the late 1800’s where the photograph is developed directly onto a thin sheet of metal. Ruhter’s images, at 48 x 60” however, are on a scale inconceivable in their time.

Five years ago, Ruhter began to experiment with the tintype process, which involves pouring a liquid mixture of iodides, bromides, and a solution called collodion over a glass or aluminum plate. The plate is then bathed in silver nitrate, making it light sensitive. It must be quickly exposed and developed in just a few minutes, before the collodion dries and loses sensitivity.




Traditionally tintypes are very small, but Ruhter, obsessed with exploring the process, has pushed its boundaries. To create the size of tintypes he envisioned, Ruhter converted a delivery van into a giant mobile camera and traveling darkroom. The process is laborious and extremely unpredictable, however, the one-of-a-kind images that result are both ethereal and incredibly detailed, with rich layers of silver that create an almost three dimensional effect. Because the process is produced and controlled entirely by hand, each plate is inherently unique, with the chemicals’ process leaving irregular and ghostly shadows, halos, and ripples in each plate.

Another Cup of Coffee? Research Says Yes!



For years coffee drinkers have been told that their love of the buzz was bad for their health. Studies in the 1970s and 80s showed that the ingredients in coffee were tied to increased risk of cancer and heart disease. It is time now to rejoice! In recent years, researchers around the globe have learned that coffee may not be so bad for you after all, and in fact there are quite a few health benefits in that cup o’ joe. Coffee is…

We all know that coffee makes you feel more alert and energetic, but researchers report that those who consume 4 cups a day were 20% less likely to be clinically depressed than those having just one cup. Caffeine stimulates the brain’s release of dopamine for mood and anxiety regulation.

Several studies have found that coffee fanatics drinking 3-5 cups a day have the lowest risk for cardiovascular disease. Please take note this means plain black coffee. Hold the milk and sugar!

Caffeine has been linked with weight loss and prevention of weight gain because it can suppress appetite and stimulate calorie burning.

If you’re feeling backed up, coffee may be able to help. Many ingredients, namely chlorogenic acid, stimulate the distal colon which helps to quickly rid waste from the body.

In early 2015, three studies were published that found coffee to reduce risk of skin, endometrial and liver cancer. The National Cancer Institute published a study showing that people who drank four cups of caffeinated coffee a day had a 20 percent lower risk of melanoma than non-coffee drinkers. An AACR journal found that women who drink four cups a day have a reduced risk of endometrial cancer. U.K. researchers released an analysis of 34 studies conducted around the world and concluded that coffee consumption—even just one cup a day—reduces the risk of liver cancer.
