    first_imgOn Monday, The Rolling Stones announced their highly hinted-at 13-date 2019 U.S. stadium tour. In addition to the announced dates, the rumor mill has been buzzing about the Rolling Stones making an appearance at next year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. With the festival adding an extra day in 2019, many have speculated that the Stones will hit New Orleans on the annual festival’s second Thursday (May 2nd). As of now, no announcement has been made by the band or the festival to confirm this widely-held hunch. Or has it?Shortly after yesterday’s tour announcement, Mick Jagger posted a Facebook video in which he mentions all of the cities on the upcoming tour by name. However, there’s a city that Mick Jagger mentions at the 20-second mark of the video that’s not on The Rolling Stones official tour announce.

  • Raising the bar because we just can’t help ourselves.

    first_imgWe’ve been best known for designing innovative sleeping bags featuring our Big Agnes Sleep System for over a decade. What could we possibly change about such a proven system? We think about gear a lot. We are constantly stressing about things like fabric strength, tent pole architecture, how to cut grams; it’s what keeps us awake at night. You may say we’re obsessed but that’s what keeps us fired up. In fact, it’s what we stand for at Big Agnes. So when we asked ourselves the question, “How can we make something great event better?” We went right to our original, the bag that started it all. We decided to find a way to make our System Bags even more like a comfy bed away from home.Bag-Pad-YouThe Big Ages System is different than the traditional sleeping bag on top of a sleeping pad. Instead, we unite the two. With our Big Agnes System, the pad slides into an integrated sleeve on the bottom of the bag. The System Bag setup provides a secure foundation and keeps you on the pad all night long. We wanted to make it even better. We recently started with the Classic Down series. Already super warm and easy to pack, the new design gives you more room to move and feels like a down comforter draped over your body, while the generous hood gives you more range of motion so that you can move unrestricted while staying hooded. What does all of this mean? It means you have room to sleep on your side! We also improved our Women’s Classic Series, which got a super cool facelift and a little extra insulation in the foot box. The Divide Ultralight Series was also updated so the gram counters are stoked as well. Regardless of which of the new bags you choose, they all were updated with DownTek™ water repellent insulation which maintains loft in moist conditions. The updated bags are even easier to care for and dry out.Lost Ranger 15 SideOur product team is constantly thinking, improving, and challenging the norm. How can we make it lighter, faster, stronger? At the end of the day, we wanted to be even more comfortable when snuggling up with Big Agnes. We do it all so we can sleep outside, so we can sleep in the dirt. We’re pretty proud of what we do, I guess you could say we sleep pretty well at night, especially in the dirt.last_img read more

  • A layered approach to fraud

    first_img 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr What we know to be true today is not going to change – and that is growth in fraud and attacks on the payments system are not going away. When attempting to combat fraud, think about layers – of people, technology, and processes that have to be in place to keep up the good fight.Though there continues to be a forecast that card present (CP) fraud will decrease significantly through 2018, we anticipate that card not present (CNP) fraud will continue to grow, with some estimating as much as a 50% increase in incidents. Why?  Well, fraudsters are getting more sophisticated, improving their technology and keeping in step with the security we’re all trying to put in place.I get asked all the time, what about EMV? Wasn’t that supposed to stop CNP fraud? The short answer is yes. We have seen a significant slow-down in fraud with the continued adoption of EMV on both the issuer and merchant side. EMV definitely mitigates CNP fraud and we reap those benefits; the counter to that is that we continue to see more attacks on CNP payment scenarios. continue reading »last_img read more

  • Shooting Free Throws

    first_imgI know every basketball coach thinks he practices free throws more than he practices anything else.  From watching most games, something isn’t working!  Either coaches are not practicing free throws long enough or the players certainly are not listening to what is being instructed.  Anyone playing basketball beyond eighth grade should be able to hit 7 out of 10 free throws.  So far this year I have seen college teams shoot less than 50% for a game, and high school teams sometimes struggle to hit 33% of their free throws.  In the old days kids would shoot and shoot and shoot at home.  Because most outdoor basket space was limited, they spent a lot of time practicing free throws.  Everyone had a free throw line marked on their home court.  Today they do little playing outdoors, and when they are in the gym they want to do two things:  dunk the ball and shoot three’s.  You now have players who actually shoot better from the field than they do from the free throw line because that is where all of their extra shooting takes place.  If you can find me a kid who shoots 100 free throws a day on his own, I’ll show you a very high percentage free throw shooter.  A friend of mine said it best when he stated “free throws are FREE and should be gift points”.  However, when you seldom–if ever–practice them, no wonder we see 40% free throw shooting.last_img read more
