WATCH: Jose Mourinho gives driving lessons in episode one of ‘Jack Whitehall: Training Days’ YouTube Original Series

‘Jack Whitehall: Training Days’ features top footballers ‘Behind-The-Scenes’ in all new comedy series available weekly from May 9th for a total of 6 online episodes with bonus mini-episodes in-between

9th May, 2018: Episode One of Jack Whitehall: Training Days is now live, featuring José Mourinho and Gareth Bale as you’ve never seen them before. Released today, exclusively on Jack’s YouTube channel, the British comedian seeks the mentorship of Manchester United manager José Mourinho as he undergoes a disastrous driving lesson on UK streets.

Never one to shy away from conflict, the two trade insults as Jack tests the humour of the famously fiery manager, prompting Mourinho to give as good as he gets, sarcastically wishing Whitehall “good luck” as he storms off midway through filming.

From driving in a car to driving with a golf club, the comedian then attempts to cut off Gareth Bale’s famous ponytail while the pair work on their golf swings, before turning him into a human waxwork to prank local tourists.

Jack Whitehall: Training Days is YouTube’s first-ever European-centric YouTube Original Series based on an original concept developed and produced by Fulwell 73 and directed by Fulwell partner Gabe Turner, the showrunner for the programme. The series celebrates the biggest names in football, as well as some of YouTube’s most popular UK-based creators, including Joe Sugg, Manny, Joe Wicks and The F2 Freestylers. Fulwell’s James Corden, Ben Winston, Gabe Turner and Leo Pearlman are executive producers.

Jack Whitehall says: “One of the great things about comedy is getting out of your comfort zone, so I certainly made it my job to get these football stars out of theirs. It’s been great working with them on Training Days and showing fans a different side to them. Filming this series has been a great warm-up to the World Cup and I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did making it.”

INTRODUCING THE SUNSATION ‘FLAME’

– Bring the feeling of a French sunflower field to your home, no matter how big or small your garden space –

As winter becomes a distant memory, Brits considering spending a fortune and going abroad should consider creating a sunny European atmosphere at home rather than booking a flight and heading to another country. Sunsation is here to help with the launch of the ‘Sunsation Flame’, a cheerful flower with a bronze-coloured ring that wouldn’t look out of place on a French veranda.

The golden circle of Sunsation Flame’s flower head contrasts against the yellow tips of the sunflower’s petals and dark inner heart to create a striking product that would make a perfect gift or decoration for any home.

The Sunsation Flame shares the same characteristics as the classic yellow Sunsation, which is also available across the UK. You might think you know the sunflower, but Sunsation is different in the following ways:

· Longevity – unlike other sunflowers Sunsation has multiple flowers buds. As one flower reaches the end of its bloom, the next bud comes into flowering so you get more bang for your buck. Each flower will ‘radiate’ for a few weeks before being replaced by another

· Limited height – whereas some sunflowers can grow as high as 16 feet, Sunsation has a compact height of 9, 12 or 13cm so it can fit comfortably in any living space

· Thrives both indoors and outdoors – Sunsation’s adaptable nature and compact size means they can grow in abundance in your kitchen just as well as on your patio

· Easy care – simply place the plant in a sunny spot, water regularly and if you have time add plant food every couple of weeks and you can’t go wrong with Sunsation no matter how busy you are

· RHS Accredited – Sunsation is accredited with RHS’s AGM (Award of Garden Merit) Award for its good structure, long blooming period and second late summer bloom

DIY Tip – Create A Mobile Garden

No matter how much garden space you have, a ‘mobile garden’ is an ideal way of creating green space and working with what you have. Sunsation sunflowers are an ideal addition to any mobile garden thanks to their compact nature and ability to thrive in different spaces. Whether your mobile garden is placed outside or inside, you will find that your sunflowers move on their own and grow towards the sun, something that is especially clear when lots of sunflowers and planted together in one pot.

Whether you are combining your sunflowers with grasses, herbs, long grass, other flowering plants or simply letting them shine on their own, Sunsation flowers are sure to bring a splash of colour to your home just in time for summer BBQ season to take off. If you are feeling creative don’t feel like Sunsation are limited to pots; experiment with hanging planters, wicker baskets, vases or other quirky items for a striking effect.

PREMIUM JAPANESE GIN ‘ROKU’ LAUNCHES IN FIVE CITIES ACROSS THE UK

House of Suntory unveils premium Japanese gin in over fifty bars across London, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, and Edinburgh

Distilled and bottled in Osaka, Roku – which means ‘six’ in Japanese – will be available from today in over fifty on-trade outlets across London, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, and Edinburgh. Bars include Gaucho and Sexy Fish (London), Montpeliers and Gin71 (Edinburgh), Anchor Line and Dakota Hotel (Glasgow), and Constellations and Pen Factory (Liverpool).

Carefully crafted by Japanese artisans using six botanicals that can only be found in Japan, in a process unique to Roku where each botanical is steeped and distilled in a variety of pot stills to extract the best possible flavour before being carefully blended by Master Distiller Kazuyuki Torii. Each of the six botanicals has been harvested in accordance with the Japanese concept of ‘shun’, the tradition for enjoying each ingredient at its best and only harvested once they have reach peak flavour – ensuring optimum flavour is imparted to the gin as part of the distillation process.

Through painstaking attention to detail to ensure the perfect balance, the distinct flavours of sakura flower, sakura leaf, yuzu peel, sencha tea, gyokuro tea and sansho pepper offer a subtle yet sophisticated profile with a smooth and silky texture punctuated by Yuzu top notes and a crisp, clean, spicy finish.

Taking inspiration from the Japanese tradition of ‘Omotenashi’ – a philosophy which emphasises hospitality – the signature Roku Gin & Tonic is served with ice and six hand-cut slivers of fresh ginger to accentuate the Yuzu top notes within the gin and provide a uniquely refreshing flavour.

Johna Penman, Maxxium Head of Brands for Beam Suntory said: “Distilled in Osaka’s Suntory Liquor Atelier, the high standards set out by Suntory’s principles of artisanship in premium whiskies have been applied to Roku to create an unmistakably complex and balanced gin. What’s more, we firmly believe that Roku will stand apart as the definitive Japanese gin in the UK’s growing premium gin category, both in the on trade and off-trade as we look to expand the reach of Roku nationwide in 2018.”

Roku is served in a bespoke hexagonal bottle featuring one of the unique Japanese botanicals embossed on each facet and complimented by a hand-designed label printed on traditional Japanese ‘washi’ paper. With an ABV of 43%, Roku is a truly distinctive gin that reflects the painstaking and meticulous craftsmanship of the House of Suntory’s expert distillers and the rich heritage from which it draws inspiration.

Roku is available in over fifty bars selected bars from today across London, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, and Edinburgh.

TASTING NOTES:

Flavour profile: Yuzu top note

Taste: Complex, multi-layered, yet harmonious flavour of various botanicals. Traditional gin taste in the base, plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes, with Yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit) as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.

PERFORMANCE SPORTS GEL LACTIGO™ NOW AVAILABLE IN EUROPE


OutPlay Inc (OPI), a company focusing on improving the human experience, is pleased to announce that their patent pending, flagship sports performance product LactiGo™ is now available in Europe at lactigo.co.uk. Research for the LactiGo formula began in 2009 as an international collaboration of scientists and sports enthusiasts who were searching for a safe, sanctioned, and healthy solution to the challenge of sports performance and recovery, whether in elite, professional athletes or weekend warriors.

This fast-acting, topical gel has been proven to increase performance in elite athletes by up to 15% after only one application. Virtually all LactiGo users report improved performance, and a growing body of testimony from athletes and scientific experts alike is building a solid case for this sports performance gel. LactiGo has been studied at a select number of elite U.S. universities. One of whom was so astounded by its results that they conducted a double-blind pilot study and found that if an American football player applies LactiGo 40 minutes before running the 40-yard dash, he would cross the finish line up to 5.9 ft. faster, after just one application.

“It’s no coincidence that my form has been good ever since I’ve been applying the LactiGo gel. My recovery after games is much better and fatigue from playing and training is not as big a problem for me as it might have been previously. I certainly feel that using LactiGo is helping me extend my career further” said Richard Hibbard, Wales and Lions Test hooker.

“LactiGo has changed the way I train my players. We can go harder for so much longer and not have the soreness that would normally be associated with that kind of volume of work. This is a revolutionary product with astronomical results that will change college sports.” said Je’Ney Jackson, Former Director of Football Strength and Conditioning, Kansas University, Former NFL Player.

The brand LactiGo was developed over the past three years following rigorous scientific investigation, countless success stories, and has numerous patents pending. With each passing day, more and more athletes are weighing in on LactiGo’s positive benefits.

“I have played in the NFL for 13 seasons. LactiGo is one of my secret weapons. It helps me compete at the highest level every single day!” said Nick Novak, Los Angeles Chargers.

“I’ve been using LactiGo for two years. LactiGo helps me jump further, it helped me get that extra boost. I really appreciate what LactiGo has done to help me achieve another medal. It is a great product, and I’ll continue to use it until I get ready to retire,” said Brittney Reese, American long jumper, Olympic Gold Medalist and a seven-time world champion.

The scientific evidence is equally compelling. Exercise physiologist Chad Macias and nutritionist Tim Sharpe collaborated on a study of LactiGo through the University of Western States that was published in June, 2016 in the peer-reviewed Journal of Exercise Physiology Online. Using elite male soccer players from the Italian Serie League as test subjects, Macias and Sharpe reported an “increase in aerobic and anaerobic work capacity” following the use of LactiGo.

“LactiGo is the real deal. The study conducted by Chad Macias and Tim Sharpe using elite soccer players as subjects proved that the gel enhances sports performance in a big way and is safe. Even more compelling data are emerging to show how beneficial this is going to be.” said Brad Dieter, PhD, OPI Scientific Advisory Board Chair.

LactiGo is now used by professional athletes in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, PGA Tour, Premier League, MMA, Rugby Union and more.

Approximately 67 million Americans currently participate daily in some sort of sport or exercise and the US vitamin and supplement market is worth 35 billion dollars.The global supplement market is expected to reach 278 billion dollars by 2024.

Introducing LactiGo™
OPI’s first product featuring performance sports gel LactiGo, is available now at www.lactigo.co.uk. One Gel Pump bottle 100ml (3.4 fl oz) for 20 GBP / 22 Euro / $26.96 USD introductory offer.

About LactiGo™
A revolutionary new product that is transforming sports and fitness. LactiGo is your game-changer!

Soon to be in every gym bag, LactiGo has been proven to increase performance within 45 minutes of use. There hasn’t been a discovery this big in athletic performance since creatine monohydrate in the early 1990’s.

Developed in Europe, refined in North America, LactiGo has been tried and tested by everyone from weekend warriors to top professional athletes, with incredible results.

INCOGNITO AND STYLISH: You can wear this clavicle brace over a shirt or under your clothes to easily hide it. Wear it outdoors, at home, in the office, when sitting — just don’t wear it to sleep.

➤ Aligned body, aligned mind
You know how they say “smile, and you’ll naturally feel better?” That’s because your physicality affects your mentality. When you have good posture, you stand taller, your confidence shines, and you feel better.

➤ Versatile to wear for any activity
Wear your posture fixer in the office, when sitting for long periods of time, at home, and outdoors — just never to sleep. Wer it a few hours per day to start.

➤ “Undo” your days of slouching
Sit in your office, drive for long commutes, or look down at your phone a lot? That’s a recipe for slumping, slouching, and rolled shoulders. This is the best corrective aid to easily fix your poor posture.

➤ Designed for extra comfort
The adjustable straps are 63cm, which is longer than the straps on most other clavicle support devices. Included are also two armpit pads for extra padding.

➤ Made for everyone
Beanstalk Fitness’ back posture corrector is suitable for men, women, young adults, and teens.

➤ Train your back to straighten
With time, muscle memory will develop from wearing the support trainer, and your posture will be naturally straighter.

➤ Easy to wear
Slip the device on your shoulders and pull the straps to self-adjust from the front. Easily tighten to what feels most comfortable and supportive for you.

➤ Relieve pain and discomfort
When you straighten your posture there’s less stress on your neck and shoulders and your spine is able lay in its natural position. This naturally relieves upper and lower back pain because your body is in proper alignment.

➤ **NOTE ON SIZING**
These braces WON’T FIT EXTRA LARGE frames. They should fit small, medium, and smaller large frames.

Your Child Was Made Just for You!

New picture book celebrates the special bond between dads and their children.

When a ​​father holds his child for the first time, something magical happens. In that moment a bond is formed, and even the toughest of men become wrapped around those tiny fingers. This deep love is beautifully captured in the new children’s book Made for Me by Zack Bush.

Made for Me highlights the tender moments between father and child. Through thoughtful rhyme and touching illustrations, Made for Me shows that with every step or new word, the love between a father and his baby is forever.

Of all the children that ever could be,

You are the one made just for me.

About the Author: When Zack Bush was growing up he spent his free time listening to jazz. Instead of imagining a career in law or medicine like so many of his classmates, the Miami native knew he would take a different path. Zack learned to play the piano and would speak with family and friends about one day owning a venue that would bring the music he loved to others. Zack is now the owner of Ball & Chain, a historic live-music venue on Miami’s famed Calle Ocho, in the heart of Little Havana. Zack and his team renovated and restored the nearly forgotten gem, famous for hosting 20th-century jazz greats like Chet Baker, Count Basie, and Billie Holiday. Today, musicians from around the world perform live on the Ball & Chain stage.

Zack’s other passion is books. A devoted reader and writer, Zack’s lifetime desire to become an author has found a refreshed source of inspiration as the father of two-year-old son Ace and baby daughter Ava.

The Complete Retirement Planner

In just a few minutes, all the math is done for you, and it results in a year by year plan. That’s a gift!

The Complete Retirement Planner (www.completeretirementplanner.com)

Every father wants to make sure that he will be financially prepared for retirement (no matter their current age),

but it’s mind bending to figure out all the variables needed for creating a comprehensive plan. 74% of households

have no retirement plan because of the complexity involved. Problem Solved.

This is the only retirement planner to determine your actual need (no assumptions) – and give you a detailed, year by year plan.

There’s nothing else like it on the market, so you would be giving your father the best retirement planner possible.

Some highlights:

easy for anyone to use
entries/results by spouse to help manage separate accounts
allows for income, savings contributions, and investment returns by year, for greater flexibility
accounts for tax liability and tax deductions by year (critical for accuracy!)
helps estimate health care expenses in retirement
allows for itemized expenses that vary over time, to generate year by year expenses
includes the Complete College Savings Calculator mentioned above! (it’s built in to the planner)
accounts for Required Minimum Distributions

At $49.99, this planner is far more thorough and accurate than any other you can find for double, triple, or even quadruple the price.

Your father will appreciate all the time, effort and aggravation that you saved him, and the eye-opening results the planner provides.

Great Gift!

David B.: “I am almost 55, was eating myself to an early grave. Weighing in at 219 pounds just shy of 5-11- safe to say obese! It was a fluke I discovered the headset, so my wife and self both ordered a set. I am a healthy cynic, so I did heaps of homework before ordering – profile of directors, shareholders, etc but more important the medics and the science. Everything stacked up 100%. Headset arrived end of September, I have used every day, early evening, never missed a session and have the volume/ frequency at 10. Within a week, changes were happening, feeling less hungry, better sleep, wanting to eat healthier foods. The journey continues but so far I have lost almost 30 pounds and I am down to 190 pounds!”

Anonymous, 32: “I have been using the device for 45 days and have had amazing results. I got a Bod Pod Test performed on day one and day 45. I have lost 1.4kg in weight, had a reduction in body fat of 13.5% (17.7% to 15.5%) which is around 7lbs. I gained 2.5lbs of lean mass which means that my time in the gym is paying off. A product that has given me more get up and go. It has helped with my sleep pattern and also my quality of sleep. But most importantly, it has made me lose body fat.”

Moroccan Magic Organic Lip Balms

Customers are calling our lip balms ‘the smoothest in the world and long lasting without that waxy feel or taste.’ They were voted as the number one drug store lip balm by union celebrity makeup artists in Hollywood and are favored by the Real Housewives of Orange County and New York. Our lip balms are available in CVS, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wegmans, Vitamin Shoppe and many more nationwide.

The lip balms in our collections come in a variety of flavors, all made from Organic Moroccan Argan + Essential Oils. I feel our lip balms would be perfect for your segment on Father’s Day gifts! We have recently been on the Fox 5 DC morning show, in a segment on Easter basket gift ideas. The flavors come in: Peppermint Eucalyptus, Coconut Almond, Lavender Vanilla, Lemon Thyme and Rose which retail for $3.99. “We didn’t want to create just another lip balm, we wanted our lip balm to feel special, buttery smooth and luxurious for the everyday consumer. Sure, we all splurge on our face products, but America deserved a better lip balm for less.” – Kristina

Moroccan Magic delivers an ultra-hydrating formula of high quality organic cold pressed argan oil, essential oils and healing herbs to treat lips to unprecedented moisture coupled with toning and smoothing properties. Argan oil is regarded around the world for its extraordinary anti-aging and conditioning benefits, and when incorporated into a lip balm formula, the result is an effective treatment that’s quick absorbing and highly moisturizing. Packaged in a sleek black .15oz tube, the aesthetic of Moroccan Magic appeals to men and women, alike, and offers an attractive and convenient way to aid dry, chapped and peeling lips. The full line of Moroccan Magic flavors are available on their site www.MoroccanMagic.com.

The idea for Moroccan Magic was born after Kristina Tsipouras, Founder and CEO, received a bottle of 100% organic cold pressed argan oil from a friend who visited Morocco.. Tsipouras began using the oil on her lips and skin and couldn’t believe the moisturizing results. She immediately began experimenting with argan oil coupled with different ingredients like Vitamin A and E and top essential oils, and after months of trial and error, Tsipouras discovered the perfect formula to create the ultimate argan oil lip balm.

Moroccan Magic officially launched in January 2016, on MoroccanMagic.com and at regional Whole Foods Market locations and select CVS stores. With its growing popularity with celebrity makeup artists and beauty editors, Moroccan Magic’s entire collection has been picked up by several national retailers and are now available in over 8,500 stores across the United States and on CVS.com. Moroccan Magic retails for $3.99 and will be sold alongside other leading lip balms. “We literally cannot keep our best sellers in stock. Rose, Coconut Almond and Lavender Vanilla have a strong loyal following.” – Kristina Tsipouras

“As a self-proclaimed lip balm addict, I am thrilled to introduce America to Moroccan Magic, a lip balm that boasts top-of-the-line organic ingredients coupled with a luxurious formula and stylish packaging at an affordable price,” said Tsipouras. “In my opinion, if you’re eating organic, you should be wearing organic.”

Maserati announced as Official Automotive

Partner to Harlequins

Maserati gives young Harlequins fan surprise of a lifetime

London, 4 May 2018 – Maserati GB has announced a new partnership with Harlequins, to become the official automotive partner of the historic London rugby club. The partnership brings together two performance-driven, iconic brands that share an entrepreneurial spirit, whilst being synonymous with style and heritage.

As well as offering the opportunity to bring the brand to life on match days at The Stoop, and at Twickenham for the ‘Big Game’, it will also provide the opportunity for Maserati and Harlequins to work together to curate an ongoing stream of exciting fan experiences.

This new rugby involvement builds upon Maserati’s other sporting ventures in polo, sailing and cycling and aligns with the marque’s ongoing expansion plans, entering into new segments and offering an ever greater luxury model range.

Commenting on the new partnership, Mike Biscoe, General Manager, Maserati GB : “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Harlequins. It is a hugely evocative club brand recognised across the globe, and one with extremely similar attributes to Maserati. We like to think differently too, so we look forward to seeing where our shared approach leads and having some fun whilst showcasing our range to the club and its fans.”

Ned Wills, Harlequins’ Commercial Director, said: “Maserati is a wonderful partnership for the Club because of our shared values and goals. At Harlequins we bring the spirit of innovation, ambition, passion and courage to everything we do. Like Maserati we have a strong heritage but are continuously looking to improve. This will be a great partnership with a lot of entertaining and exciting times ahead for both Harlequins and Maserati.”

Samuel’s Surprise

To launch the new partnership Maserati rewarded 12-year old Harlequins fan Samuel Freestone with the ultimate surprise in the form of a lift to the stadium with club internationals Joe Marler, Chris Robshaw and Alofa Alofa in a Maserati Levante S, the brand’s 430hp petrol engine SUV.

Samuel, who plays rugby himself for Battersea Ironsides, was chosen for the special end-of-season experience due to his own rugby commitments constantly getting in the way of supporting his beloved Harlequins in person at the weekends.

Samuel was bracing himself for a post-school dentist’s appointment, when instead the three Quins turned up to chauffeur him to The Stoop, the home ground of Harlequins.

There he was given a behind-the-scenes tour of The Stoop, had the chance to play on the pitch with his Harlequins heroes and was presented with a personalised Harlequins shirt and two tickets to the final home game of the 2017/18 season v Exeter on Saturday 5th May.

Formex On The Enduring Power And Appeal Of The Luxury Sports Watch

The term luxury sports watch might seem a bit of a misnomer at first. However, look more closely at this style of watch and when, where and by whom it has been worn and it becomes easy to appreciate its powerful classic appeal. Formex Swiss Watches are a brand who wear their love of high octane, adrenaline fuelled sports proudly and firmly on their wrists.

Up until the early 1960s a man would wear the appropriate style of watch for the occasion. A business meeting and a suit called for a slim, discreet and elegant dress watch; to conquer Mount Everest in 1953 Sir Edmund Hillary relied upon his Rolex Oyster Perpetual and when stepping onto the surface of the moon Buzz Aldrin was wearing his rugged Omega Speedmaster.

It was a case of never the twain shall meet; that was until James Bond appeared on the big screen in Goldfinger wearing a Rolex Submariner dive watch with his wetsuit and a short while later was seen wearing the same watch with his impeccably tailored dinner jacket. This was the moment when men realised that the luxury sports watch was more than a timepiece to wear only whilst pursuing your passions.

A great sports watch will look at home on a yacht, at the wheel of a racing car or piloting a plane. It will be robust, rugged and very masculine whilst retaining a versatility that means it can be worn in the boardroom as well as on the beach. Its appearance and performance will match both wardrobe and lifestyle without compromising its original design intent.

Formex Watches was created in the late 1990s and its name is a combination of the two French words “forme extrème” meaning the extreme shape and design of the watch and alluding to fitness and sport. There are four models to choose from – Element, Motorsport, Diver and Pilot – their look and attributes fuelled by the world’s they were named for.

Formex Watches are completely Swiss made and designed; a fusion of high performance materials such as stainless steel, titanium grade 2, ceramic, carbon-fibre and very reliable Swiss Made movements making them virtually indestructible. One of the most unique aspects of a Formex watch is its case suspension system. Inspired by the world of high performance bikes and racing cars, this cushion concept protects the watch movement from strong impacts or vibrations and makes the watch incredibly comfortable to wear. And as Coco Chanel once opined, “luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

Formex don’t just put their sports credentials into the design and function of their watches they also put it into supporting incredible extreme sportsman. Company CEO, Raphael Granito is an avid sportsman who enjoys many high-octane pursuits, from motor sports, to skiing, snowboarding, sky diving, free diving and surfing. These passions have led naturally to partnerships with exciting athletes; Reubyn Ash – UK champion surfer; Marc Hauser – world record skydiver; Alex Toril – winner of the Dubai 24h and Le Mans Michelin cup; Elias Ambühl – champion free skier; Thomas Genon – champion dirt jump and slopestyle mountain biker: Abraham Calderón – champion Nascar and Freightliner Truck driver. These sportsmen are all incredibly talented and push the boundaries of the possible; they pursue their dream of achieving extraordinary feats of daring and skill and all are very proud to wear a Formex watch.

James Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, said it so well, “a gentleman’s choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Saville Row suit”. The elegant dress watch, intelligent smart watch or pure sports watch all have their appeal and their place. But for sheer versatility you can’t beat the watch that can do it all, the timeless, luxury sports watch that has bold, classic appeal and embodies all that is best about design and function. This is where a Formex watch comes in, arguably the most affordable luxury sports watch in the world, bold, rugged and more than able to walk the walk.

GoXtreme Endurance Action Cam – Available from Argos for £79.99 –

Prepare to witness the Dark Knight, alongside many of his most famed allies and infamous foes, in an eye-popping anime display like you’ve never seen before.

Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.

The visually stunning Batman Ninja is the creative result of a trio of anime’s finest filmmakers – director Jumpei Mizusaki (Opening Animation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), writer Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann), and character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai) produced the original movie with Warner Bros. Japan. The script was then reinterpreted and rewritten for English-language distribution by award-winning screenwriters Leo Chu and Eric Garcia (Supah Ninjas, Afro Samurai). Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are Executive Producers.

Roger Craig Smith (Batman: Arkham Origins) and Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) lead an impressive cast as the voices of Batman and the Joker, respectively. Grey Griffin (Scooby-Doo franchise) and Tara Strong (Batman: The Killing Joke) supply the voices of the antagonist & protagonist’s closest allies – Catwoman and Harley Quinn, respectively – while Fred Tatasciore (Family Guy) provides the gruff-yet-sophisticated tones of Gorilla Grodd, a villain who must team with Batman to achieve his own personal agenda. Other voice actors include Bat-family members Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10: Omniverse) as Robin, Adam Croasdell (Reign) as Nightwing and Alfred, and Will Friedle (Boy Meets World) as Red Robin, and the Rogue’s gallery also features Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Penguin and Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) as Two-Face. Doing double duty is Tatasciore as Deathstroke, Strong as Poison Ivy, and Friedle as Red Hood.

“Batman Ninja is an absolute feast for the senses, a stunning spectacle of anime wrapped around a thrill ride of a Batman story,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Our partners at Warner Bros. Japan have conjured an impressive addition to the Dark Knight’s canon of entertainment, taking Batman and his friends and foes in an altogether new direction. We can’t wait for fans to see this film.”

NEW YORK CITY RUGBY LEAGUE INSPIRED BY THE ‘AMERICAN ALL STARS’ TOURISTS OF 1953

One of the earliest attempts to introduce Rugby League to the United Sates was in 1953, when Mike Dimitro, the former UCLA football star and NFL Rams player organised a tour by an American Rugby League side to Australasia. Nicknamed the ‘American All Stars’ they’d never played the game before, yet they competed with the very best Australia, New Zealand and France had to offer and even shocked the locals with some stunning victories.

The most recent initiative to take the game of professional Rugby League to the United States is the bid to join the RFL by the New York City Rugby League being led by Ricky Wilby. Last week Wilby met Kevin Ellis, the Founder of Ellis Rugby and a deal was agreed to develop a licensed vintage clothing collection based on the pioneers of 1953 the ‘American All Stars’.

Commenting on the collaboration, Ellis said “We are tremendously excited at the prospect of developing this collection for NYCRL and marketing not only through the USA, but all League playing countries” he continued “The opportunity for the game across the pond is massive and I wish Ricky and his team all the best with their bid”

The aim is to launch the collection later this year and distribute through a range of retailers throughout the U.S.A., Australasia, the United Kingdom and mainland Europe.

NYCRL Bid Leader, Rick Wilby commented “Ellis Rugby create exceptional quality garments and we are delighted to be working with them”, he continued “The American All Stars of 1953 showed the outstanding athletes available in the U.S. and I’m confident once our bid gets the Green light it will be the start of something big for both the country and the game as a whole”

Inventor Helps Mascots, Youth Players and Parents Dry Out

When Domenic Ciarallo made a trip to China in 2007 he did more than just visit the sights of what the historic country had to offer. What he came back to Canada with was an idea to create a portable, lightweight device capable of cleaning garments and athletic equipment in relatively quick fashion after a day’s usage. Equally important a device that can remove unwanted bacteria and prevent staph infection. The invention became the Rocket Dryer™.

A 53-year-old Canadian, Ciarallo has first hand of what hockey equipment goes through after toiling as a goaltender during his collegiate days at Middlebury College followed by a professional stint in Italy and Sweden.

But it wasn’t until he visited China where he saw a prototype of what some people in that country used to clean garments and prevent bacterial growth. “I said that we need to have something like this (in Canada),” he recalled. “It was part of a bigger vision to help with hygiene in sports and recreation.”

Launching the Rocket Dryer™ in 2010 under his Rocket Sport product line, Ciarallo’s initial objective was to target the minor hockey segment. It’s at this competitive level where ominous odours emanating from equipment and garment stored in equipment bags can be overbearing. Or even in residential garages or basements when equipment is being dried out and rank odours can be dominant.

In addition to cleaning apparel and preventing the spread of bacteria, Ciarallo was quick to point out the Rocket Dryer™ and more recent Rocket Locker™ can extend the lifespan of a player’s equipment. That should bring a smile to any hockey parents’ face in terms of saving a few greenbacks.

“Hockey equipment can cost $750 or more and with the use of the Rocket Dryer™ it can last for longer periods of time rather than having to throw it out,” he said.

In explaining how the Rocket Dryer™ and Rocket Locker™ operate, Ciarallo said, “It is based on the concept where a combination of heat, UV light and vented air dries most sporting equipment and clothing within 60 minutes. The drying process significantly reduces unpleasant odours and prevents the build-up of potentially harmful bacteria. The rapid elimination of corrosive sweat also significantly increases the lifespan of sporting equipment, keeping it like new.”

Equipment and clothing are hung on a steel frame using S-hooks. A steel frame is enclosed within a polyurethane-lined fabric dryer bag. The heater unit heats air inside at a constant 70 degrees C.

A fan circulates air and vents excess moisture to quickly and gently dry equipment and clothing inside and out – even in hard to reach interior areas of skates and gloves that contain a tremendous amounts of bacteria. This minimizes contact time of corrosive sweat against joints and fasteners. It also preserves integrity and tensile strength of fabrics, equipment straps. The combination of regulated heat and vented air dries equipment thoroughly without overheating or damaging material like traditional tumble-dryers.

While Ciarallo initially targeted the Rocket Dryer™ and Rocket Locker™ for minor hockey usage, he also saw how valuable it could be for other athletes who don heavy equipment while performing highly athletic manoeuvres.

Among those include mascots.

And to this day, all of the NHL mascots are utilizing the Rocket Dryer™. “I love it to death. It’s an awesome product,” said Bailey, official mascot of the Los Angeles Kings, of the Rocket Dryer™ and Rocket Locker™.

Being the first NHL mascot to try the Rocket Dryer™ and Rocket Locker™, ‘Bailey’ acknowledged he was a bit skeptical at first. But after using it, he was sold on it and extolled the virtues of it to his fellow NHL mascots during last year’s NHL all-star game in Los Angeles.

“I use it every game. It definitely helps remove any rank odours and it dries my equipment quickly.”

Just how has the Rocket Dryer™ and Rocket Locker™ been received by the public?

Steve Parsons says he won’t leave home without it. Nor will eight-year-old Special K.

Participating in the world’s longest hockey game that lasted 246 hours and two minutes in Chestermere, AB. in May, 2012, Parsons said were it not for the Rocket Dryer™ he might not have been able to go the distance in an event recognized by the Guinness World Book of Records.

A former professional player, Parsons underwent intense physical conditioning, mental training and planning prior to when the puck was first dropped to start the event.

During the marathon Parsons said the participants lived in the rink for 11 days and played in segments of 4 1/2 hours on the ice and 4 1/2 hours off. Parsons revealed his biggest concern was in how his feet would stand up to the rigorous test.

“The chafing and rashes…all of that comes in wet gear,” he said.

In an attempt to combat what could derive through his wet hockey gear, Parsons said he purchased a Rocket Dryer™. “I hung all of my gear after every single game and had it totally dry for the next session. I could play all 11 days and played every shift and took part in others as well,” he recalled. “With the Rocket Dryer™ I avoided chafing, washing and staph infections which I had a history of when I played in the American Hockey League.”

In addition to drying out her goalie equipment in almost 30 minutes with the Rocket Dryer™, Special K said what makes the device so unique is that it is easy for almost anyone to assemble. “I’m eight years old and I can put it together myself in my hotel room,” she cited. “It’s so easy to set up and it really works.”

The only problem, she said with a smile, is that all of her teammates want to utilize it as well.

Not one to stand pat, Ciarallo has continued to add to his Rocket Sport product line and recently unveiled the Rocket Stall™ during the recent 2018 National Hockey League all-star game in Tampa, FL.

A by-product of the Rocket Locker™ and Rocket Dryer™, the Rocket Stall™ measures 30 inches in width by 72 inches in height and 30 inches in depth and was created to dry multiple athletic sports gear, Domenic shared.

In creating the Rocket Stall™, Ciarallo was quick to point out it provides added space for performers who don either more bulkier equipment such as a goalkeeper or a team mascot, who often sport apparel that far exceeds their physical frame.

“The Rocket Locker™ is big and the Rocket Dryer™ is limited with the amount of equipment. But the Rocket Stall™ was created because of space constraints for some people,” he said.

The male gorilla is renowned for being the head of and protector of the family so there’s no better way to say thank you to your own pillar of strength and give support from one dad to another.

The Born Free Foundation is an international wildlife charity working throughout the world to stop wild animal suffering and protect threatened species in the wild.

The gorilla is the largest of the great ape species. It is thought to have shared a common ancestor with humans about 10 million years ago, today sharing about 98% of its DNA with humans. Faced with increasing pressure from human population through habitat destruction, hunting and disease gorilla populations are under sever threat.

Although many organisations have been striving to protect great apes and monkeys many species are still in decline. That is why Born Free remains committed to supporting conservation action, trade restrictions and law enforcement to help stem this tide.

All proceeds from the adoption packs help protect numerous gorillas worldwide from deadly poachers, including two extremely rare Eastern Lowland silverbacks Mugaruka and Chimanuka who live in DR Congo.

What’s included in adoption pack gifts:

Adoption starts from just £2.50 per month and supporters will received a unique pack including:

A cuddly toy gorilla
A glossy photo of your adopted gorilla
