It’s been four months since Polar announced their new Vantage series of multisport watches. This series

It’s been four months since Polar announced their new Vantage series of multisport watches. This series is currently comprised of two watches, the Vantage V and Vantage M. The V is the higher end multisport watch, meant to be a direct replacement of the nearly 5-year old V800.  While the Vantage M focuses on the mid-range, and carves out a bit of a new segment for Polar, it is meant to compete with Suunto’s Spartan Trainer Wrist HR, as well as undercut Garmin a bit in the multisport game. The two units are incredibly similar, both from a design and functionality standpoint. Despite that, this review will be focused on the Vantage V from a data collection standpoint. Said differently: I’ve just done the vast majority of the workouts with the Vantage V as opposed to the Vantage M. I will note however in this review when there are V-only features that don’t apply to the M.  By and large most people are finding similar performance between the M and V units from an accuracy standpoint. Still, I’ll likely aim to do a Vantage M focused review later next month (which also coincides with travel to warmer locales where getting more openwater swim testing is viable again). In any case, onc...

MXA RACE TEST: THE REAL 2020 450 FOUR-STROKE SHOOTOUT

Motocross Action Magazine – Motocross Action Magazine is the worlds leading publication about motocross and supercross. Make no mistake about it, MXA isn’t looking at these six bikes for their play riding, enduro, offroad or professional practice riding prowess. To us, these are pure-bred race bikes, and that’s how we tested and rated them. Our information is just a suggestion. If you don’t like our test, you can find lots of internet shootouts with different results—perhaps one of those will jibe with your delicate sensibilities. But, be forewarned, we are the only ones who have raced all six bikes every week, dyno’ed all six bikes (on the same day, on the same dyno), weighed all six bikes, broken things on all six bikes and spent five months doing our shootout (instead of the one or two days of most shootouts). We used 10 different test riders of varying abilities and politeness who also raced all six bikes in classes from Novice to Vet to Pro. We don’t care what some stranger on Facebook thinks of “MXA’s 2020 450 Shootout,” but we do care what serious motocross racers think, because they push the bikes they own to the edge of the envelope. That is our true audience, bec...

Why these rusty shipping containers in Ancoats are being snapped up

It might not sound like a likely or desirable space from which to run your business, but the rows of old shipping containers at Pollard Yard have become a hub for some of Greater Manchester’s most creative and promising start-ups. The New Islington hub, run by property management firm Meanwhile Creative, boasts nail bars and film studios, co-working spaces and fashion design houses. But it’s got some big neighbours – Pretty Little Thing and Boohoo Man have got warehouses and offices on either side, Hope Mill Theatre is just down the road, and the drumbeats coming from Brunswick Mill Rehearsal Studios are just audible – and it’s doing a roaring trade. There are 75 containers here now, with more phases on the way in the coming months – and they’re all let. Stepping through the entrance to Pollard Yard, you’re greeted by a huge bee-covered mural by artist Ben Downs . Tenants are given only the very bare bones of a container, though insulated and with electricity wired in, which they can decorate how they wish. We see neon signs and flower walls, hanging plants and giant noticeboards as we work our way around the yard. There are loose ...

CES 2020: The Withings ScanWatch Says It Can Detect Sleep Apnea

Last year, Withings wowed at CES with a hybrid smartwatch that could also take your ECG. That was no small feat, considering it came just months after Apple made waves with the same feature on the Series 4. This year, it’s doubling down on ‘medical-grade’ hybrid smartwatches with the ScanWatch, which can take ECGs and monitor for sleep apnea. The ScanWatch purportedly tracks for sleep apnea via Sp02 sensors. That makes sense, and in the world of wearables, it’s nothing new. Fitbit has included SpO2 sensors since it introduced the Ionic in 2017. Garmin has them in their smartwatches as a means of measuring how much your body has recovered from strenuous workouts. Fitbit has been hinting that sleep apnea is an area of interest for years now, but has yet to create new features with the SpO2 sensors. That’s what makes the ScanWatch interesting—not only is it claiming to help detect sleep apnea in users, Withings has submitted it for FDA clearance. For most of my adult life, I didn’t really think about sleep: It was just an activity that my body… Getting FDA clearance is big—it certainly lent credibility to the Series 4′s ability to read ECGs. But it’s also a gamble. Unless you...

The River: You meet a lot of characters along the way, and Cheyenne was one, a deckhand and a cowboy

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> The riverboat captain is a storyteller, and Captain Don Sanders will be sharing the stories of his long association with the river — from discovery to a way of love and life. This a part of a long and continuing story. Of all the remarkable characters the Steamer DELTA QUEEN attracted to its crew, none was more unique than Cheyenne C. Cheyenne, or as he was fond of adding, “Where the Middle C stands for Cheyenne.” Like many drifters looking for “three hots and a cot,” Cheyenne found his way aboard through the dish room scrubbing endless piles of pots, pans, crockery, and cutlery. Some way, or another, this loud, garish, spindly, scarecrow ended up as one of my eight deckhands. Of all the remarkable characters the Steamer DELTA QUEEN attracted to its crew, none was any more unique than Cheyenne C. Cheyenne. One of my first associations with Cheyenne found me with the deckhands gingerly scrubbing the deck outside Captain Ernest E. Wagners’s room on the forward Sun Deck below the pilothouse at four in the morning. At six-feet-fou...

Colbert Says Trump Stole Alligator Moat Idea From ‘Colbert Report’

Stephen Colbert called out Donald Trump for (again) stealing ideas from his Colbert Report character on Wednesday’s episode of The Late Show. The host briefed viewers on a recent New York Times report that one of Trump’s plans to prevent people from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border was to add snakes and alligators to a water-filed trench. The president reportedly prompted aides “to seek a cost estimate.” Colbert responded, “Who do you call? Where do you shop for 2,000 miles of moat gator?” Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to claim that he never suggested that the border should be guarded by alligators. In addition to calling the press “crazy,” Trump misspelled moat as “moot.” While many of the late-night hosts poked fun at the alligator moat on their shows Wednesday night, as the Times report quickly made headlines for the extreme nature of Trump’s reported plans, Colbert took it a step further and pulled out evidence to show that Trump’s alligator idea was not original. “Not only is Trump’s gator plan insane, it’s also plagiarized and you’ll never guess who he stole the idea from,&#...

Your 6 year old daughter, niece, or granddaughter may have just started the first grade. While

Your 6 year old daughter, niece, or granddaughter may have just started the first grade. While every child develops at a different rate, here are the common milestones for 6 year old girls. By 6, she is now able to sit and concentrate for longer periods of time. She is no longer learning through observation but through language, reasoning, and logic. First graders have a much longer attention span where independence and responsibility are becoming more important. Friends start to have more of an impact during the younger elementary years. Being accepted by a group is becoming more and more important. She is becoming more sensitive to others, but there is a lot of attention placed on the self. This is the time when you really want to start engaging your child in sports and dance. What are the best gifts for 6 year old girls? Of course, she will like themed things. You can get socks, gloves, underpants, boots, books, and bedding sets as long as it has her favorite character on it. Some 6 year old girls love all things that are shiny, sparkly, and pink, but not all do. In addition to getting her something fun, you should also choose a gift that will support the skills that she is l...

Biogerontologists at Michigan have made significant strides toward unlocking the secret of longevity.

Biogerontologists at Michigan have made significant strides toward unlocking the secret of longevity. Most people would like to slow the ticking of nature’s time clock and tack some healthy, active years onto their lives. But the search for longevity has proven to be elusive. Medical researchers have endeavored through various means to tap the brakes on the aging process, stem the onset of age-associated diseases, and extend the normal lifespan. These efforts have been laborious and costly. And the results have fallen short of their mark. In recent years, biogerontologists at U-M’s Paul F. Glenn Center for Aging Research have made significant strides toward unlocking the secret of longevity. Their work offers a glimmer of hope. “People assume aging is immutable and that it is a fool’s errand to look for drugs that slow the aging process ─ but they are wrong,” says Richard Miller, director of the Glenn Center and professor of pathology at the medical school. “We have documented four different drugs that work in mice to decelerate aging and postpone the diseases and disabilities which make aging troublesome.” Miller reports that in laboratory testing, the anti-aging drugs have be...
