first_imgMiley Cyrus was a featured interview guest on the British radio program Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp earlier this week, where the pop singer revealed she’s been working on a Metallica covers album alongside some pretty famous names.According to reports, Cyrus loosely detailed the unannounced project during her appearance on the radio show in saying, “I did a Metallica cover of ‘Nothing Else Matters’ featuring Elton John on piano. I’ve got Yo-Yo Ma, Chad Smith, so many all-stars. I’m so excited about this collaboration. I’m really stoked. I love when ingredients don’t quite fit.” The report goes on to detail that the project is being produced by Andrew Watt, who also produced Ozzy Osbourne‘s 2020 studio album Ordinary Man.Related: Miley Cyrus & The Roots Perform Soulful Bob Dylan Cover On Fallon [Watch]Cyrus has shown a strong interest in performing classic rock covers in recent years.

first_imgHe put an Issimo cycling computer mount on the extensions.Tejay is one of the few that uses a setback seatpost on his TT bike.That front wheel was unlabeled, described only as “that front wheel that we’re using” when asked. Any guesses?BMCracingteam.com In talking with a team rep, he said there aren’t a lot of prototype or fancy parts on the bikes because it’s helpful to the mechanics to have everything as similar as possible. And, as he put it, “special parts have special problems.”That said, the bikes had mostly stock spec save for one very interesting custom handlebar/stem combo for Tejay Van Garderen. Made by joining standard 3T bullhorn bars and aero extensions into a single piece and then molding them directly to the steerer tube and fork, the entire front end of the bike becomes one giant carbon fiber piece. Here’s why… Compared to a standard setup on the right, the custom one-piece bit is much cleaner looking. It’s also much stiffer, and there’s no way it can come loose or slip under hard efforts or over a big bump. The rep said when the rider’s weight is over the front, particularly if putting weight on the ends of the extensions or bars, there’s a lot of leverage there and if they hit a big bump, the bars can rotate down a bit. Considering how much the team invests in getting the fit and aerodynamics of rider + bike dialed, this ensures they’ll stay that way throughout the course.Unfortunately for you and I, this customization is said to cost around CHF 20,000 (Swiss Francs). That’d put the total bike cost north of CHF 30,000 (or upwards from $32,000 as of the date of this posting). Still interested?And they had to make two of them for Tejay, an “A” bike and a “B” bike. Each has a few subtle differences……mainly with the positioning of the junction box and the types of fibers used.last_img read more

first_imgStandards are good so it’s nice to see both road and cross getting behind a unified interface for brakes. You know road disc brakes are here to stay when they come on a Colnago C60.12MM THRU-AXLESSimilarly, 12mm thru-axles are now the standard front and rear, from steel road bikes to carbon cross bikes.DISC BRAKES WILL GET SAFER & MORE AEROWhile mountain bikers have somehow survived just fine, you don’t usually see mass pileups on the trail. So, the UCI is apparently looking at ways to make disc brakes safer for the peloton. TRed proposes their Donchisciotte carbon covers as a solution…Or maybe safety will come in revising the rotors themselves? All of Campagnolo’s rotors get a smooth rounded profile, as do SRAM’s and Hope’s. Shimano started beveling the edge of their newer R9000 Dura-Ace rotors, and their recent Dura-Ace & Ultegra groups include new rotor designs that use fully closed carriers (so you couldn’t stick a finger through a spinning rotor?) We’ve now seen a similar design from FSA (above), along with a rumor that this might be the UCI-approved solution.With disc brakes already going on triathlon super bikes from the likes of Parlee, Diamondback and Cervelo, there’s no doubt a bike can still be aero even with rotors and calipers. But it takes work, and we’re seeing interesting approaches, like these “fork flaps” on the new Scott Foil Disc. Pinarello has been using a similar concept on their bikes for a few years even before disc brakes came around.1X ROAD DRIVETRAINSWe already saw it on cross bikes for the past few seasons, then on gravel bikes. It started to get serious this summer with the 3T Strada bike. And now we have 3T’s new wide range Strada Bailout & Overdrive 9-32 cassettes and the looming SRAM XDR wide road freehub body standard that is already creeping into road wheels. It looks like road 1×11 is here, and 1×12 probably ain’t far behind.RACE-ONLY CYCLOROSS BIKESNow that gravel bikes have taken over the mantle as the flexible do-it-all bike, ‘cross bikes can get back to being ‘cross bikes. A few purebreds stayed the course, but a lot of brands tried to make one bike that could kinda do it all. Which was cool if you only dabbled in cyclocross racing. For those of us who consider spring the off season, it’s refreshing to hear more brand managers talk about making a true, race-specific cyclocross bike again.SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave Walking around the show, it’s easy to spot obvious trends. But we talked to product managers, brand ambassadors, and the marketing folks at hundreds of companies over the four days of Eurobike to get the real scoop on what’s coming to the road and cyclocross bikes of 2018 and into 2019…MORE CAPABLE FRAMESWe suspect the aero trend that’s dominated designs for the past few years will continue to be an important element. But increased tire clearance and frame comfort are growing in prevalence. In some ways, they go hand in hand, with larger tire clearance making way for 28mm wide tires on most bikes, some even opening up to 30mm or 32mm. That’s about the max you’re likely to find on a “road” bike, but it’s plenty. Adding to the buoyancy from these larger tires are frames with vertical flex (like the Argon 18 Krypton, above), vibration damping or improved ergonomics built in. It’s all in an effort to make you faster and help you ride longer by reducing drag and fatigue.FULLY HIDDEN CABLESBMC, KTM & Ridley have all recently introduced new disc brake road bikes that fully enclose their cables and hydraulic hoses into the frame through one piece bar+stem combos. Mechanics must hate it, but it sure looks cool (and is aero to boot!)FLAT MOUNT DISC BRAKESlast_img read more

first_imgCHA, Bemidji State hanging by a laceWith only four teams, College Hockey America is running out of time and games.July 16, 2008Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintWhen former Minnesota men’s hockey goaltender Brent Solei was tacking on his first career win last January in a 5-1 victory over now-defunct Wayne State , I assumed I was seeing the beginning of the end for College Hockey America.Already grasping an NCAA rule that allows college conferences to retain an automatic NCAA tourney bid without the necessary field of six teams, the CHA was dealt another death blow when the Warriors program shut down after last season for financial reasons.But, like the minor you got freshman year, CHA just won’t go away.Last week, the Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee proposed a new policy that will allow the conference to keep its bid to the national tournament for at least one year, pending approval by the Division I Championships/Sport Management Cabinet.But even if the policy is approved, it simply puts off the inevitable; sooner or later, the CHA will be extinct.CHA charter member Bemidji State is taking a hint from Air Force – which bailed on the conference in 2006 for the greener pastures of Atlantic Hockey – by testing the waters with the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.Not long after Solei’s win, Bemidji State signed an agreement with the WCHA that gave the Beavers a handful of home games each season, starting in 2010-2011.Bemidji State president, Dr. Jon Quistgaard, isn’t hiding the University’s intentions very well – the Beavers want in.“We view this agreement as the first step in developing an even closer relationship between Bemidji State University and the Western Collegiate Hockey Association,” Quistgaard said in a release at the time.Quistgaard and the city of Bemidji have a wonderful welcoming gift for the WCHA, in the form of the Bemidji Regional Events Center – a proposed $50 million venue that is a major bargaining tool if the Beavers are ever to join the conference.The 4,000-seat arena meets WCHA minimum requirements for attendance and replaces the diminutive 2,399-seat John S. Glas Fieldhouse .The problem for the Beavers is that the WCHA isn’t all that interested in adding another team, let alone one from a conference that hasn’t posted a win in the NCAA Tournament since 2000. That’s why they haven’t done it since adding Minnesota State to the conference stable in 1995.To top it off, the WCHA isn’t even including Bemidji State in the inaugural State of Minnesota Hockey Showcase next November – the only Division I program in the state that didn’t get an invite.The other four teams (Minnesota, Minnesota-Duluth, Minnesota State and State Cloud State) are all members of the WCHA, which will treat the event like regular conference matchups.But how can you hold a statewide competition and not invite the program that, arguably, sounds the most Minnesotan?The women of the CHA aren’t doing much better than the men.They’ll field just five teams next season, now that Syracuse has joined the ranks for its premiere season.The Orange will join a conference that has never posted an NCAA postseason victory, going 0-5-1 with the tie coming in 2000 when Niagara tied Minnesota of all teams.But, at least the women’s teams have been close.While the men have predominantly been blown out against nonconference opponents in the NCAA Tournament, the women have never lost by more than a goal, and have taken four games into at least one overtime.The CHA will likely be protected by its automatic bid this season, but after that it’s sink-or-swim time for the conference.Whatever’s left over, after that, will celebrate the league’s 10th anniversary by either battling it out for an at-large bid, or by passing on into obscurity – or at least trying to find a few more teams to play with.last_img read more

first_imgCBRE has been awarded the marketing assignment for The Campus at Tucson International in Tucson, Ariz. The six-building, 253,393-square-foot business park campus sits on 17.6 acres two blocks from Tucson International Airport. The property was formerly home to Texas Instrument’s operations in Tucson.William DiVito and Jesse Blum with CBRE’s Tucson office will handle the marketing of the property for owner HSL Properties of Tucson. DiVito and Blum also brokered the transaction for HSL, which purchased the property in September from Texas Instruments of Dallas, Texas for an undisclosed price. HSL is currently making improvements to the property with plans to reposition and bring new life to the project and the Tucson market.“We believe Tucson is a market that can and will attract major employers with the right kind of real estate. The Campus at Tucson International is that kind of real estate,” said Humberto Lopez, president of HSL Properties. “Our goal is to attract companies that will add value to the Tucson market in the form of jobs and commerce.” “This campus once housed over 1,400 employees,” said Omar Mireles, HSL’s executive vice president. “Our vision is to see that happen again. We are committed to bringing new businesses and the jobs that come with them to Tucson.”“The Campus at Tucson International is unique in that it offers a campus environment with amenities and infrastructure that are matched only by the properties that currently house Honeywell, Ratheon and IBM,” said CBRE’s DiVito. “It’s really well positioned to attract quality tenants and we’ve already experienced a flurry of interest from a variety of potential users after officially being on the market only a few weeks.” “We’ve had interest from companies looking to utilize the property for uses ranging from basic manufacturing to high-tech optics, and even back-office and data-center operations,” said CBRE’s Blum. “Some users have inquired about the entire property, while others have interest in portions of the property. That’s the great thing about The Campus at Tucson International; there are so many possibilities for potential users which opens us up to a really wide variety of user types.”The Campus at Tucson International is a multi-use site that includes offices, labs, a conference center with a full commercial grade kitchen and cafeteria, as well as manufacturing and warehouse space.

first_img47 percent: That’s the proportion of people who have a first memory that’s actually fictional, according to a new study in Psychological Science by researchers in London. Our first memories usuall date from about age 3, research shows. But in a survey of 6,641 people, 38.6 percent said they had memories from when they were age 2 or younger, while 893 said their first memories dated from their first year of life. Researchers suspect that these cases of fictional memory may result from fragments of experience combined with seeing photographs or hearing stories of infancy and early childhood.
