Oakley Reveals Newest Limited Release: Chrome BMX Arrays

first_imgAt this point you might be asking yourself what is an array, is it the name of the glasses or what? Array is the term Oakley uses to describe an entire kit for a pair of sunglasses. The Array usually includes one frame, 3 lenses, multiple earsocks or nose pieces, bag, and case. So in this case there are two styles of sunglasses each with a limited edition Chrome BMX Array.The lenses offered in the array aren’t just any standard lenses. They are special lens tints offered in limited pieces in Oakley’s sun glass offering, and were selected specifically for inclusion in this array. For example, when you’re deep in nature and the sun is bright, you need increased visual contrast to bring out fine detail. Pop in the Violet IRIDIUM® lenses and complete the look by slipping on the matching purple earsocks. For neutral contrast that helps you maintain color recognition, install the Jade IRIDIUM lenses and Green earsocks, and you’ll be ready for a wide range of light conditions. The +Red IRIDIUM lenses go with the Red earsocks, and that premium lens color offers neutral contrast under bright skies.Look for these eye catching shades at a bike shop near you this May, and look to spend $350.00 to get a pair of these limited and very cool glasses. Both frames will come prescription ready. Head on over to Cyclingnews.com to see James Huang’s shots of these glasses under natural light to see just how shiny this chrome really is! Glimmering in the sun like the shiny new P.K. Ripper you lusted after back in the day,  the newest gotta-have-it unobtanium from Oakley takes form in the new Chrome BMX Array. Paying homage to those Quadrangle, Looptail, and twin top tube BMX frames from the late 70’s and early 80’s that were seemingly dripping with chrome, the new models are sure to catch anyone’s attention. Oakley states the BMX Array was “inspired by the decades Oakley has been part of two-wheeled sports, the BMX Chrome frame salutes the chromed bikes of kids who have become today’s champions.”The limited edition Array will consist of both a Jawbone and a Radar frame, each with 3 pairs of matching lenses and earsocks to emulate the color matched anodized parts that were all the rage then, and starting to come back now.  In addition, Oakley chose matte black for the frame jaw to throw in a nod to BMX tires. The new Oakley BMX Array will also include a custom Microclear polishing/storage bag and an Oakley Ballistic case to store them in. Both the Arrays will be available at premium bike dealers.See the new Chrome BMX Radars after the break!last_img read more

British Cycling hits 40,000 member milestone for ‘historic day’

first_img Related British Cycling has signed up its 40,000th member, doubling its membership since 2007 in what has been a period of unprecedented growth for the national governing body. The milestone comes just one day after Mark Cavendish claimed a world title for Britain in the Men’s Road Race in Copenhagen yesterday.In April 2007, British Cycling membership was just at 20,000 members, rising to 30,000 by May 2010 and has since catapulted to 40,000 in just over a year. This rapid growth has been boosted by the organisation’s elite success since the 2008 Beijing Games and a host of effective grassroots initiatives that are converting the inspirational power of its athletes into thousands of newcomers to cycling.From developing the sport in BMX, Mountain Biking, Track and Road to creating entry level cycling opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, through programmes such as Sky Ride, Breeze and Go-Ride, British Cycling is helping drive a cycling boom worth nearly £3 billion to the UK economy.Brian Cookson OBE, President of British Cycling, said “Today really brings it home that our ‘inspiration to participation’ strategy is working as all types of cyclists are getting behind us on the final approach to London 2012.“Mark has already thanked his team but I’m sure he would agree that gold medals really come about as the culmination of the efforts from a huge team of people, from riders and support staff to the thousands of volunteers and clubs who work tirelessly to develop our sport.“As we celebrate this great British victory and record membership, our thanks go to Sport England whose National Governing Bodies investment strategy has been key to our success at grassroots level and to UK Sport and Sky for their continued support.“We are on track to get one million more people cycling regularly and increase weekly participation to 125,000 by 2013, and with the backing of our partners and members we are delivering a fantastic participation legacy of a home Olympic and Paralympic Games.”Since the start of its Sport England Whole Sport Plan funding cycle in April 2009, the organisation has enjoyed unprecedented growth across all its core areas including:The increase of 74,500 in the number of people cycling once per week15% increase in the number of competitive events organised by British Cycling members and clubs47% increase in the number of non-competitive events organised by British Cycling members and clubs28% increase in licence holdersTo facilitate the growing demand for its sport, British Cycling continues to run a range of coaching qualifications and courses and its Go-Ride development programme supports young people in over 250 clubs and schools.It has deployed Regional Events Officers to support its regions in organising and co-ordinating over 3,000 sporting and non-competitive events and work also continues to bring major international cycling events to Britain and to develop cycling facilities.Sir Chris Hoy, four time Olympic Champion, and British Cycling member said “On behalf of all the riders I’d like to say thank you to the members of British Cycling. Your commitment to our sport makes a huge difference and means the organisation can continue to grow, offering more opportunities for more people to enjoy riding their bike. All members of British Cycling should take great pride in the role they’ve played, and continue to play, in helping ensure the sport is thriving at all levels.”British Cycling also continues to influence the UK government and its members have been instrumental in campaigning to ‘Keep Racing on the Road’ with record submissions of petitions received by the Department of Transport to amend archaic legislation that is hampering road racing in Britain.Ian Austin MP, Shadow Sports Minister and British Cycling Member said “As a keen cyclist I’m really pleased to see that we’ve now got the backing of over 40,000 members. What British Cycling have achieved is remarkable because very few sports manage to increase mass participation at the grass roots and achieve world-beating success at elite level.“We have done a lot of work to advance the interests of cyclists and more members will give us a louder voice in the corridors in Westminster and Whitehall. With home Games on the horizon, I’m confident that British Cycling will continue to flourish and drive more interest in the sport.”British Cycling membership provides support and benefits to all types of cyclists. Members enjoy discounts from top cycle retailers, cycling publications and get legal support and insurance. Fees are invested straight back into the sport and used to develop cycling facilities, future talent and growing participation.www.britishcycling.org.uklast_img read more

Freshman pole-vaulter Andrea Smith derives courage from an ill brother

first_imgFreshman pole-vaulter Andrea Smith derives courage from an ill brotherSmith’s older brother Brad is awaiting a slow-coming third pancreas transplant. David McCoyJune 8, 2005Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintTo an extent, those who pole vault are regarded as living life on the edge. But that doesn’t cut it in Andrea Smith’s family.Not when her brother is on the edge of life.Andrea Smith is a freshman on Minnesota’s women’s track and field team. Her brother Brad Smith is a 22-year-old without a functioning pancreas.So at 7 p.m. Thursday, while she’s in Sacramento, Calif., competing in the qualifying round of the NCAA Championships in the pole vault, he will be hooked up to nutritional IVs, rooting his sister on from their home in Bemidji, Minn.That’s something that makes Andrea Smith very grateful for this week’s opportunity.“Everyone struggles and everyone has day-to-day issues with things, and you can let them get out of proportion,” she said. “And then I think, every night he gets hooked up with IVs at eight o’clock at night and is on them until eight o’clock in the morning; that reminds me I’m really fortunate.”Brad Smith was born with an extensive list of health complications, most specifically a very severe form of diabetes.Because of that, he’s already had two pancreas transplants. Now he needs a third, but neither of the Smith’s insurance companies wants to pay for it.The first insurance company, which the Smiths pay for, has a clause that says it doesn’t have to pay for a third transplant if the first two fail, Andrea Smith said. The second company, which the Smiths have to cover their expenses when the first maxes out, is also refusing to pay for the transplant because of the failure of the first two.Brad Smith said it’s frustrating but that he’s trying to make the best of it.“The second transplant worked for longer than the first one did, so the way I see things, the third time could be the charm, I guess,” he said.Because of those complications, doctors told the Smiths to schedule a Make-A-Wish Foundation trip when Brad was eight years old. Andrea was five.Brad Smith was then put on Remicade, a drug that is primarily used to treat rheumatoid arthritis but also helps with autoimmune diseases.It was very successful for a while, but in Andrea Smith’s junior year of high school, her brother’s pancreas had deteriorated so much that he needed a transplant.Unfortunately for his little sister, Brad Smith’s transplant surgery was on the same day she was to compete at regionals. She wanted to skip the meet and be with her family at the hospital, but she said her parents told her that her brother would want her to compete.Andrea Smith said she kept her cell phone at her side during the whole meet so that she could rush to the hospital if anything went wrong.Something did go wrong – very wrong. After the transplant, Brad Smith’s new pancreas ruptured while his sister was on the runway trying to clear 10-6 to qualify for state. He had to be rushed back into surgery to get more blood. “I was vaulting, and he was basically bleeding to death into his belly,” Andrea Smith said.Her phone rang just before her final vault, and she passed it to another competitor so she wouldn’t miss anything important.Andrea Smith went straight to her brother’s hospital room after the meet. She gripped his hand and he opened his eyes but couldn’t talk because of the ventilator. She said when he could finally talk later that afternoon, the first thing he said was, “I’m going to be there at state.”The state championships were just a week and a half later. But he came anyway, against his doctor’s wishes.Andrea Smith said he looked “really skinny” and was white as a ghost when their father brought him to the stands in a wheelchair during her warm-ups. But she was deeply moved to see him and ran to give him a big hug.“Just knowing that the reason he healed up and got out of the hospital so fast was because he believed in me and wanted to come watch me, it just put things in huge perspective,” Andrea Smith said. “My accomplishments that day seemed huge to me, but he had just beat a life-threatening battle to come watch me, basically.”Her brother’s inspiration helped Andrea Smith win that year’s state title. In fact, she won the title her sophomore and senior years as well.Brad Smith said seeing his sister win the title was “the best feeling in the world,” but also said knowing his sister calls him inspirational is very uplifting.“It makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something,” he said.In turn, she inspires him. He said his family is the reason he has been able to stay so positive through everything.During that time, Andrea Smith said she was worried she wouldn’t be able to get away from track to be with her brother. But Gophers coach Gary Wilson understood there were bigger things in her life.“She was like, ‘Can I do that?’ ” Wilson said. “And I said, ‘Go, we’ll make it happen.’ Like track would come before that. It ended up she didn’t need to miss anything, but it shows she is dedicated to the team and dedicated to her brother.”Brad Smith was able to make it to most of his sister’s meets that were closer to home this season, but has never been able to do any flying. Though he’s used to it, he said, Brad Smith is still disappointed he can’t make the trip to Sacramento.“I’m kind of disappointed,” Brad Smith said. “But I know I’ll get another chance, maybe I’ll get to go next time.”Andrea Smith did her final workout before NCAAs on Monday morning at the Bierman Track and Field Complex with former Gophers pole-vaulter Monica Stearns, who holds the school outdoor record.“She is huge in that she’s been there before, seen everything and been through everything,” Andrea Smith said. “And so just to talk to her, she’s just a huge inspiration.”But, obviously, not nearly as big of an inspiration as brother Brad.last_img read more

Egypt reports four new H5N1 infections

first_imgJan 28, 2010 (CIDRAP News) – Egypt’s health ministry has confirmed four new H5N1 avian influenza cases, which aren’t related although all had contact with sick and dead poultry and are recovering in stable condition, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported today.News of the four cases comes the same day researchers detailed the epidemiologic patterns of Egypt’s H5N1 cases in Eurosurveillance. The report suggests that children have been disproportionately affected as well as women, a group that is more likely to die from H5N1 infection. The new report also shows a connection between early treatment and recovery.The new cases include:A 20-year-old woman from Beni Suef governorate who got sick on Jan 6 and was hospitalized and started on oseltamivir (Tamiflu) on Jan 11; this case appears to be the same one reported on Jan 13 by Strengthening Avian Influenza Detection and Response (SAIDR), an Egypt-based project funded by the US Agency for International DevelopmentA 1-year-old boy from Dakahalya governorate who got sick on Jan 7 and was hospitalized and treated with oseltamivir on Jan 12A 3-year-old boy from Assuit governorate who became ill on Jan 19 and was hospitalized and treated on Jan 12A 45-year-old man from Sharkia governorate who started experiencing symptoms on Jan 12 and was hospitalized and treated on Jan 19The four H5N1 cases bring Egypt’s total to 94, of which 27have been fatal. They are the first cases to be reported in 2010. Last year Egypt reported 39 avian flu cases, up dramatically from 8 in 2008. However, the number of deaths for both years was the same, at 4. The new cases raise the world’s H5N1 count to 471 cases, including 282 deaths.New reports of human infections appear to mirror a recent spike in poultry infections in Egypt. On Jan 19 animal health authorities announced that they had recently detected 17 household outbreaks across 8governorates as the result of increased passive surveillance in veterinary clinics.In today’s Eurosurveillance report, researchers from the National Veterinary Research Institute in Nigeria analyzed the first 3 years of H5N1 infections in Egypt, from March 2006through August 2009, which includes 85 cases and 27 deaths.In 2009 the disease seemed to take a growing toll on children. At the same time, Egypt’s H5N1 patients seemed increasingly more likely to survive their infections. Officials have suspected that earlier medical treatment has led to the drop in case-fatality rates, but some public health officials have wondered if other factors such as genetic changes in the virus have contributed to the different clinical outcomes in Egypt, where the virus is endemic in poultry.Females were more likely to be infected than males, though infected children were more likely to be male. Women aged 20 to 39 were more likely to die of their infections, and researchers speculated that they may have had more exposure to the virus, because Egyptian women do the bulk of culling, slaughtering, and defeathering.The investigators linked early hospitalization to an increased chance of recovery, and they noted that Egyptian children are hospitalized more quickly than adults, which could contribute to the lower deaths rates in children.Rising numbers of H5N1 infections in Egypt, plus continuing human infections in Vietnam and China despite intensive H5N1 control efforts in poultry, serve as a reminder of the virus’s pandemic potential, the researchers noted. They also said that cocirculation of H5N1 and pandemic H1N1 viruses in Egypt, where novel flu infections recently peaked, raises the possibility of coinfections and emergence of reassortant viruses.They noted that studies are needed to document levels of viral exposure in Egyptians who frequently handle poultry and explore levels of asymptomatic and unreported infections in African populations.Researchers also echoed concerns of global health experts that more efforts are needed in Egypt to change agricultural practices and people’s perceptions. They point out that studies in other African countries show farmers believe they are at little risk from poultry-handling activities such as slaughtering.Egyptians frequently keep poultry on rooftops and near living quarters, and the government doesn’t compensate for culled birds, making it less likely that bird owners will report outbreaks, the authors noted.See also:Jan 28 WHO statementJan 28 Eurosurveillance reportlast_img read more
