New Men’s Underwear Brand Aims to Provide Innovative and Stylish Underwear Exclusively for Men!

Vin’s Answer is launching a Kickstarter campaign to bring comfortable, supportive and attractive underwear for men to the market.

At the time of this press release, the project has funded over 50 % in less than 24 hours.

March 30, 2017—Brand Vin’s Answer is releasing their line of men’s underwear built specifically for the male physique this March. The company is seeking funding through their Kickstarter campaign to bring their first products to market. Owner Alper Hafif developed Vin’s Answer as a response to the market’s lack of attractive, high quality, and supportive underwear specifically for men. His goal is to change the market with uniquely designed undergarments that both men and women can appreciate.

“I got inspired by Victoria’s Secret but knew from my experience that men don’t care for sexy underwear in the same way women do,” said owner Alper Hafif, “so comfort had to be the key word for men and sexy for women. It’s a hard thing to do, but I truly believe we have done it.”

Vin’s Answer is seeking $4,400 USD through their Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of their first design in two different colors—Black and Blue.

The underwear is made from 92 percent MicroModal and 8 percent Elastane—materials. The combination aims to be skin-friendly and is three times softer than cotton as measured by the Kawabata method.

The waistband is a blend specially made by Vin’s Answer and is one of the most elastic waistbands on the market, if not the softest. Embossed into the waistband fabric is the brand’s logo in the front of the underwear.

The u-shaped design in the front supports active men, while the overall design remains flattering. A triple-stitched waistband is applied to the underwear to reduce the risk of tears and premature degradation. It is fortified to retain its appearance after washing, meaning it looks attractive for far longer than traditional cotton underwear.

To help bring Vin’s Answer to life, visit their Kickstarter campaign on March 30, 2017.

BRITISH ACTRESS VICTORIA SUMMER TO STAR AS TITLE CHARACTER IN THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SAMACO FILMS AND LAUGHING MAN ON FIRE CO-PRO INDIE THRILLER “ALEXIS COLETTE”.

Los Angeles, CA, (April 1, 2017) Berkshire, England-born actress Victoria Summer, best known for playing Julie Andrews opposite Tom Hanks, Emma Thomson and Colin Farrell in the Oscar Nominated film “Saving Mrs. Banks” and known most recently for her breakout role as Eleanor Morgan alongside “American Pie” alum Chris Klein in “Game of Aces” will be playing the title lead role in the upcoming indie thriller “Alexis Colette”.

This ingenious film, which was conceived and co-written by creative auteur Anthony W. Johnson, a published poet and prolific writer in his right, is set during the McCarthy era 1950’s America and takes place inside of the now infamous Eloise Mental Asylum.

The story, which centers around a young, passionate journalist named Eric, who seeks to discover whether the legendary mysteries surrounding the hauntings and several unexplained deaths at the Asylum in the 1950’s were as the result of natural causes, murder, or the results of risky, then considered, ground-breaking methods like electroshock therapy, mind control and lobotomies.

An elderly Guide, not only escorts the young reporter throughout the abandoned building, but helps steer the buried history, and mysteries of the eerie asylum, including that of the young Alex, and a vibrant showgirl named Alexis Colette. Alexis, who is married to the successful doctor that heads the Asylum, begins her journey as a product of her time, where women often dressed and acted like dolls.

Moreover, not only may she possibly be the culprit, she furthermore, but could also be the ghost that currently inhabits the Eloise Mental Asylum to this very day. When asked why he was so determined to land Victoria Summer for the lead title role of Alexis Colette, Anthony W Johnson responded, “Aside from her apparently extraordinary and timeless beauty, I was immediately drawn to her acting prowess… her sensibilities; also, the role requires a triple threat talent with dynamic vocal and acting range such as Victoria, whom also possesses a perfect blend of gut instinct and classical training”. Johnson went on to add, “I have also been so fortunate to have co-written the script with an amazingly gifted writer Louiza Zouzias, who brings lots of clarity, precision and discipline to my work”.

Executive Producer and owner of Samaco Films, Franco Sama, who has executive produced over 20 successful independent feature films starring the likes of such notable stars as Gary Oldman, Christian Slater, Dane Cook, Thora Birch, Kathleen Quinlan, Chris Klein, David Arquette and Vivica A. Fox, and has partnered with Laughing Man on Fire Productions, helmed by the films’ creator Anthony W. Johnson, to produce and provide funding for the project, which is currently in the late stages of development and is slated to enter into pre-production in the first quarter of 2018. The filmmakers are currently in talks with several high-profile directors and plan to enter the final stages of the principle casting phase by the end of this year.

Alexis Colette is destined to become the next “Sixth Sense” as moviegoers will want to conspire to keep a deep, dark secret and will want to watch the film over and over again to discover what they missed the first or second time around.

Longshot to Save Wantagh for Sewage Breakdown

The Wantagh Cedar Creek Sewage Plant now give the PC name of South Shore Water Reclamation Facility has a history that we cannot forget, During Superstorm Sandy, the plant, which sits just yards from the bay, was knocked out of service for two days after being hit with a 9-foot tidal surge. It dumped an estimated 2 million gallons of raw sewage and 2.2 billion gallons of partially treated sewage in the bay waters in the 44 days after the storm — the worst sewage overflow in New York state and the second-worst in the Northeast, according to scientific researchers at ClimateCentral.org.

Now part of the plan to try to reduce the problems we have from the methane gas smell and the risk of having raw sewage in our backyard there is a plan to use an 110-year-old, right water pipe that runs under Sunrise Highway as a possible conduit for treated waste from the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant. All to try to safeguard the very venerable Wantagh Neighborhood and Bay.

The Plant Opened in 1973, mgdWantagh NY, Nassau’s Cedar Creek sewage plant, tucked away behind the scenic waterfront picnic areas and playgrounds of county-run Cedar Creek Park bordering Wantagh and Seaford, performs a critically necessary function for Long Islanders. The 70-acre facility is permitted by the New York State (NYS) Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to receive and treat up to 72 million gallons per mg) of sewage and wastewater sent from the drains and toilets of countless homes, businesses and hospitals spanning the Suffolk County border on the east to Freeport on the west and parts of the North Shore.

But is It Safe?

The fact is Flush the toilet, pretty much anywhere within these parameters and its contents will end up in some shape or form at this plant. The problem is the plant is aging and could be in need of great repair, part of the question is, why build this plant so close to children’s play grounds and schools when clearly it is releasing orders from methane gas produced from treatment of human waste. The fact is this plant processes everything from, Oils, to paints, blood is something you would think would be located far from kids or any housing.

The Concern

As the plant has gotten older the neighborhood has noticed more and more times when you can smell the methane gas even all the way to the tip of North Wantagh, And even greater concern is if the plant stopped working or had an explosion or malfunction. Base on previous reports this could lead to sewage in the streets. It could result in sewage in the basements of people’s homes and backyards.
Further investigation will be forth coming to find out want can be done to end the intermittent problems of the sewage smell in the Wantagh area, as well as find out what plans are in place if the plant would face a 100 percent shutdown or worst case explosion as of now most home owners know of now evacuation plans or ways to be notified.

8 Kitchen Remodel Trends You Don’t Want to Overlook!

Are you thinking about remodelling your kitchen this year? If so, you’ll want to read up on the hot trends taking over the kitchen remodelling niche.

At Lottare, we’re excited to see how design trends dictate buying trends, but what we’re more interested in is seeing how you decide to change your kitchen. Check out this 8 kitchen remodel trends before you invest in any kitchen products this year.

Stainless Steel is In—But Keep it Low Key

Metal is a key design feature in kitchens this year. Despite being a modern metal, stainless steel will change from being front and centre to a background feature. You might even see details like bronze faucets and metallic hoods. Think accent instead of a focal point, with your stainless steel metal features.

Open Kitchens

Open kitchens have recently become popular with home builders, and homeowners are now starting to join in on the fun. Contractors often find themselves knocking down walls for consumers who want to see well into their kitchen. Consider this trend if you want to encourage family time, but be sure to keep the small details like cabinetry in mind when you do.

Au Natural Color

Gone are the days of bright yellow kitchens (thank goodness). 2017 is all about muted, natural hues that blend seamlessly into a variety of appliances and metals themes. Whether you add a coat of paint to your cabinetry or want to switch the colour on your walls, go with natural hues to stay on trend.

Quartz is In!

For a good long while, Quartziano has offer quartz products, and we’re happy to say that 2017 will be the year for quartz. It will become the hottest countertop material, closely followed by granite. Even in our store we’ve noticed a significant uptick in quartz product purchases. Check out our selection to find something perfect for your new kitchen.

Mixed Hardware Finishes

Forget about the monochromatic stainless steel design features. Homeowners in 2017 are opting for appliances and accessories that have mixed metal hardware fixtures. An eclectic, but a wholly unique kitchen, is the final result.

Hidden Appliances

No more modern tools. 2017 will have homeowners searching for hidden devices that easily blend into their overall design theme. They provide the perfect added touch for your kitchen, without forcing you to spend tonnes of money on large stainless steel appliances.

Diverse Kitchen Lighting

No more recessed lighting or overhead kitchen lamps. Homeowners are now reaching for complex lighting arrangements that are 100% original. Natural light is always highly sought after, but bringing the outdoors in with unique lighting is all the rage. Think lit up cabinetry and series light fixtures. Those will lead the way in 2017.

Beverage Counters

More families are creating kitchens that are designed to entertain. This means integrating unique features like beverage centres. Keep your family and friends happy with a brand new beverage centre that has everything you need to treat the right way.

Wrapping it Up

No matter what design trend resonates most with you, our team at Lottare can help you identify the perfect item to complement your vision. Whether you need Granite composite sinks or are opting for something more muted, we can help. Make this the year you get the kitchen of your dreams, and use these trends as a jumping off point for your ideas.

CHAOS AS U.S., U.K. BAN DEVICES FROM FLIGHTS TO OVER 10 COUNTRIES

Travellers Seeking Ways To Circumvent Ban Have Ally In SpecsPro

As the United States and Britain ban devices on flights from over ten countries in response to ISIS terror fears, many consumers have been left scratching their heads over what devices are allowed—and which ones will be consigned to the dangers of the cabin hold and less-than-delicate baggage handlers.

“It might seem trivial to many, but the simple fact is that many people who travel to, from and through these nations are international business travellers,” said Jen Kravt, the founder of SpecsPro, a tech specs comparison website. “Even something as simple as a cell phone being too large will fall foul of this ban. There is only one way to avoid the inconvenience—and that is having a device that does not fall foul of the newly disruptive ban.”

SpecsPro is rapidly becoming one of the best sites to compare mobile phone specifications and prices—and it also includes the dimensions of the phone, letting browsers know if the phone fits their needs (and those of the new ban) entirely. With up to seven comparisons allowed at any one time, users can quickly find the right cell phone.

The site features up-to-date lists, and doesn’t just cover cellphones: users can also compare cameras, TVs, laptops and tablets prices and specs side-by-side online.

For now, passengers are protesting at the thought of long flights without simple devices to hand—while people in business are griping about the lost ability to work on international flights.

“The new ban is going to affect many innocent travellers who just want to get from A to B,” said Jen. “However, with SpecsPro, they can quickly find a secondary cell phone to take with them on flights to and through these nations. Is it ideal? No, but the option is there, and we make it easy just to find the right device.”

About SpecsPro

SpecsPro lets its users compare up to seven devices for their technological specifications at a time, along with expert reviews. Users can also leave their reviews on a variety of devices, making the community the first stop for those researching a potential purchase the smart way.
