This Luxury Startup Is Paving The Way With Pain-Free High-Heels

Maison Baum’s luxury high heels shift your weight back by 40%, reducing pressure on the ball of your foot. Gone are the days of sore feet from wearing painful stilettos: Maison Baum combines French luxury design with German medical expertise to create a timeless high heel — sans aches and blisters. Maison Baum’s patented footbed technology uses an insole with anatomical elevations to shift the wearer’s weight back by around 40%, resulting in less pressure on the ball of the foot. “I’ve seen my sister suffer from wearing high heels, and when I worked in banking, most women I knew kept a spare pair of comfortable shoes at their desk,” says co-founder Christof Baum, who identified a gap in the high heel market when writing his undergraduate thesis on the shoe industry. “We’re in the 21st century, and while there is so much innovation happening in sport shoes, high heels haven’t changed in seventy years.” Baum and his father, an orthopedic surgeon in Germany, spent four years developing the footbed patent and integrating medical research into their product development. Made in Portugal with premium goat suede leather and insoles manufactured in Italy, the shoes retail at 265 ...

Vintage Philco Radio Looks Stock, Contains Modern Secret: A Raspberry Pi

Antique radio receivers retain a significant charm, and though they do not carry huge value today they were often extremely high quality items that would have represented a significant investment for their original owners. [CodeMakesItGo] acquired just such a radio, a Philco 37-11 made in 1937, and since it was it a bit of a state he set about giving it some updated electronics. Vintage radio purists, look away from the video below the break. Stripping away the original electronics, he gave it a modern amplifier with Bluetooth capabilities, and a Raspberry Pi. Vintage radio enthusiasts will wince at his treatment of those classic parts, but what else he’s put into it makes up for the laying waste to a bit of ’30s high-tech.The original tuning dial was degraded so he’s given it a reproduction version, and behind that is an optical encoder and two optical sensors. This is used to simulate “tuning” the radio between different period music “stations” being played by the PI, and for an authentic feel he’s filled the gaps with static. The result is a functional and unusual device, which is probably better suited than the original to a 2019 in which AM radio is in decline. If you think...

Beth Chapman, Wife of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter,’ Dies at 51

Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman’s wife, Beth Chapman, died on Wednesday morning after suffering from throat and lung cancer. She was 51. Chapman confirmed the news of his wife’s death in a tweet, writing, “It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.” On June 22, Chapman’s family released a statement to Hawaii News Now saying that she had been admitted to the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, where she was placed in a medically-induced coma. “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you,” Duane asked his Twitter followers the following morning. Duane posted two more updates on Twitter prior to his wife’s passing–one was a photo of her sparkly, rhinestoned acrylic fingernails, the other was to tell fans to be wary of any premature or inaccurate reports about Chapman’s condition. 90% of what you’re hearing is fake news. “I don’t mean to be nasty but some are filling in the blanks. @wgnamerica will be releasing an accurate update soon. Please keep prayers coming!” Duane wrote. Beth announced she was diagnosed ...

EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. In local terms, Robert Zakar, who was raised in a family of merchants and has successfully operated gas stations, grocery outlets and convenience stores, decided to take a left turn and delve into — well, for lack of a better term — the body transport business. “When people pass away, we will take the deceased to a hospital or funeral home,” Zakar said. “My brothers would handle the actual transportation, while I would do the marketing and accounting. “At first, I did not want anything to do with removing bodies, it seemed pretty creepy to me; but when I thought about it, I realized that it was about the loved ones left behind,” he said. “I foun...

Best smart sprinkler controllers 2019: Reviews and buying advice

Watering the lawn and garden is a thankless chore, and it tends to be especially wasteful if done with a hose in one hand and a beer in the other. Irrigation systems have made home watering simpler and more efficient, and while the bulk of any sprinkler system revolves around plastic pipes and a set of motorized valves attached to the water supply, the brains of the operation has always been in the controller. For decades, sprinkler controllers have hardly been elegant devices. They typically consist of a rotary dial, a handful of switches, and perhaps a crude monochrome LCD. This is rapidly changing, as smart sprinkler controllers enter the market. These have come from two angles: Startups looking to disrupt the market with brand-new devices, and old-guard irrigation companies that have upgraded their gear with smart innards. Both approaches to date have shown some merit. Here are our takes on the best gear on the market today. Rachio has updated its Google Assistant integration so that homeowners with both a Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller and a Google Home or Android smartphone can turn on their sprinkler system with a voice command such as “Hey Google, water the front ya...
