Wrath of the TitansIt’s a box office battle of mythic proportions this weekend as remixed fables and fairy tales go head to head. In one corner, Mirror Mirror, a snarky retelling of the Snow White fairy tale. In the other, Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to the widely panned remake from 2010.
The Modern Collection is a big departure from the casual canvas shoes the brand is built on. If it weren’t for the iconic star logo, would you even recognize them as Converse? BTW, if you’re wondering why these sneakers look eerily similar to your favorite Nikes, that’s because Converse is actually owned by Nike who knew?!At the forefront of the new collection is the Auckland Modern shoe, which is an update on the old school Auckland Racer design of the 70s and 80s. The new track inspired style comes in five colors (gray, red, black, green, and blue) and is pimped out with Nike’s Hyperfuse construction and Phylon outsoles designed for better cushioning that will hold up during your workouts while still allowing for good mobility.

Today, with more than 1,000 operational satellites in orbit around Earth, our immediate cosmic neighborhood has become busier than a big city rush hour [source: Cain]. And then there’s the discarded equipment, abandoned satellites, pieces of hardware and fragments from explosions or collisions that share the skies with the useful equipment.
According to Patricia Hill Collins in “”Booty Call: Sex, Violence, and Images of Black Masculinity,” African American athletes are considered to be “hyper heterosexual” (Hill Collins 158). African American athletes represent the pinnacle of masculinity, historically viewed as being “primarily bodies ruled by brute strength and natural instincts” (Hill Collins 152). It is no surprise, therefore, that Gold Bond opted to feature this imposing and masculine athlete to market their product, in order to remove some of the stigma of femininity that some men may feel about using lotion.
