A mix of internal i-5 employees and new hires will compose the staff of Lucky Puppy, which will operate independently from Dogster, but will enjoy promotion to the one-million registered users across i-5’s web properties. The first publication and brand of its kind, according to the publisher, Lucky Puppy will launch on i-5’s Dogster.com in January, with a print and digital quarterly magazine set to debut in the spring. The magazine will be distributed for free to a combined 400,000 print and digital readers, with plans to ramp that figure up to one million readers by the end of 2016. Founded in 2013, i-5 moved quickly that same year to acquire the special interest media assets of BowTie, Inc., including Cat Fancy, Dog Fancy and Horse Illustrated. After purchasing web-based properties Catster and Dogster in 2014, i-5 then closed both Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy and introduced bimonthly, alternating print versions of Catster and Dogster in their place. Earlier this year, the company introduced Petcha.com, an interactive pet search site for prospective adopters. Lucky Puppy’s content will fall under the guise of three defining principles: live well, do good and be great. Topics of coverage will include the best pet products on the market, healthy diet and exercise routines, training behavior, and ways of transforming communities and the lives of shelter pets. The premiere issue will include a feature on creating the ultimate dog-friendly neighborhood. “There’s a huge community out there of rescues and shelters that we found don’t necessarily need a lot more help; what they need is more people taking pets home,” Jennifer Black, chief digital officer at i-5, tells Folio:. “The whole purpose of the new magazine is to talk about the integration of a lucky puppy or cat into your life once they’re at home, and creating awareness around those kinds of things.” “In general, this is part of something that i-5 is doing as a give-back,” continues Black. “We’re giving the digital edition away for free. There is absolutely a need for the content and for the education. This is the way we felt it was best to get it out there to as many people as possible.” i-5 Publishing, producer of enthusiast brands Catster, Dogster and Cigar & Spirits, among others, announced the launch of Lucky Puppy, a new digital and print lifestyle brand devoted to pet adoption and integration into homes. The print version of Lucky Puppy will be distributed four times a year, free of charge to Dogster subscribers. In addition to the built-in Dogster and Catster subscriber base, the magazine will be distributed to rescue organizations and veterinary offices across the U.S., free of charge. “It’s for those people who really make mindful choices,” says Melissa Kauffman, group editor. “The choice you make to rescue a dog or a cat. The choice you make to buy that pet the best possible products. All positive choices you make.” “It will be living on Dogster.com, but we will be creating unique and fresh content for Lucky Puppy that will be separate from Dogster,” says Kauffman.
How to choose a running shoeChoosing a running shoe is a personal endeavor, according to ultramarathon runner Jamie King. “I look for a shoe that is lightweight and flexible, but also supportive,” King tells me. “I always tell friends that they should not base their running shoe purchase off what their running buddy wears, but instead to go and try a few pairs on and move in them to make sure they work for your body and your feet.”For King, that means a shoe that is lightweight and flexible, but also supportive, and allows her to maneuver easily over rocky terrain. For me, that means a shoe with extra arch support and a relatively thick midsole (more on that below) that keeps my knees from aching. For you, that might mean something else entirely. Now playing: Watch this: 1 5 reasons why fitness trackers don’t guarantee you’ll… 18 Photos Ned Frisk/Getty Images Blisters, bunions and bruises — no, thank you. Choosing the right running shoes can help you avoid all those unfortunate foot problems and more. I know this from experience: After my first half-marathon, my right big toenail bruised from underneath and completely fell off a few weeks later. It happened because I wore shoes that I knew didn’t fit all that well, but they were cheap, so I bought them anyway. I walked around with a toenail-less toe for months. It wasn’t comfortable, and it definitely wasn’t pretty — even the pedicurist looked stunned when I went in for some help after it started growing back. I vowed to never buy ill-fitting shoes again for any reason, not even if they were 50% off. After my next half-marathon, all 10 piggies were perfectly intact. So heed this advice and take your time finding the right running shoe. Related: Stop tracking your heart rate and track this instead Many people make the mistake of purchasing running shoes with fashion as their priority. It seems like running shoes are historically ugly, designed with a handful of mismatched neon colors scribbled all over the shoe in weird designs. In recent years, many brands have pushed more aesthetically pleasing designs, but still — when it comes to running shoes, you should purchase based on fit, not fashion. Save your fashion-forward flair for your running apparel and gear. Of course, your budget will make a difference in your choice. You don’t need to drop hundreds of dollars on a pair of running shoes, but I promise it’s almost always worth spending an extra $20 for the $100 pair that fits just a little bit better than the $80 pair. What’s in a shoe? Surprisingly, quite a lot. Running shoes have their own anatomy of sorts, and if you’re searching for a pair that will support you through many miles (and keep all your toenails where they belong), you’ll need to be familiar with that anatomy. Look out for these 12 factors next time you head out to buy a new pair of running shoes. The upper of these running shoes have a knitted texture. Pramote Polyamate/Getty Images Upper portionWhat it is: Everything above the insole, including the tongue and laces, usually made with layers of mesh or knitted fabric. What to look for: A shape that matches the shape of your foot. It shouldn’t be squeezing or pinching the top of your foot and should not chafe. OutsoleWhat it is: The bottom-most layer of your shoe, where it meets the ground. What to look for: You want a durable outsole made of materials suitable for whatever type of running you’ll be doing in your shoes. For trail running, look for a very grippy outsole. For road or track running, you can get away with a smoother outsole. The outsole of this shoe has a grippy rubber texture. Angela Lang/CNET InsoleWhat it is: The cushion-y layer inside your shoe that supports your foot, particularly your arch. What to look for: An insole should match the shape of your arch as closely as possible. If you can’t find a pair that matches, you can always buy removable insoles to add extra support. MidsoleWhat it is: The bulk of the running shoe. The midsole encompasses the layer foam between the outsole and the insole. What to look for: A midsole that absorbs enough shock to make your run comfortable. Not enough foam, and you might end up with achy ankles and knees. Too much foam, and you might feel like you’re running in moon shoes. See that white layer of foam? That’s the midsole. Sarah Mitroff/CNET Ankle collarWhat it is: The cushion-y wrap at the top of the shoe where you insert your foot, intended to hold your heel in place. What to look for: An ankle wrap that feels snug and comfortable. Your foot shouldn’t slip up out of the ankle wrap, but it shouldn’t be so tight that it squeezes your Achilles tendon — both scenarios can cause serious blisters. Also note how the sides of your ankles feel. The ankle wrap may be too tall if it rubs the bony bulbs at the base of your shin (the end of your fibula). Heel counterWhat it is: A small insert beneath the insole, usually made of plastic, that reinforces the fit of the shoe at the heel. Heel counters intend to reduce the amount your foot rotates within your shoe (i.e., over-pronation or over-supination).What to look for: If you need a lot of support, choose a shoe with a sturdy heel counter. If you need less support, choose a shoe with an external heel wrap or a minimalist shoe with no heel counter at all. SaddleWhat it is: A reinforced bit of the upper portion of the shoe that encloses your instep, also called your arch. The saddle works with the laces to keep your foot securely in place. What to look for: The saddle should be snug, but not too tight. Like the rest of the upper portion, it should mold comfortably to the shape of your foot and not produce any chafing, pinching or rubbing sensations when you run. The toe box on your running shoes shouldn’t smush or rub against your toes Angela Lang/CNET ToeboxWhat it is: The front portion of the shoe where your toes and the ball of your foot reside. This usually refers to the first set of eyelets all the way to the cap at the very front of the shoe. What to look for: You need a toebox that comfortably fits all of your toes. Your toes shouldn’t be overlapping, smushed together or otherwise poorly positioned. Also purchase a shoe with a toebox suitable for your activities. If you run trails, you’ll want a toebox reinforced with a rubber bumper for durability. Forefoot cushioningWhat it is: Cushioning in the midsole from the front of the shoe to the arch. What to look for: The forefoot should feel responsive to your natural stride, rolling with the motion of your foot as it strikes and leaves the ground. Too much forefoot cushioning might make your stride feel unnatural and clumsy, while not enough might cause you to strike the ground too hard with the ball of your foot.Heel cushioningWhat it is: The cushioning in the midsole from the arch to the heel of the shoe.What to look for: You want to find a balance of support and ground-feel (again, you shouldn’t feel like you’re running in outer space). You also want the heel cushioning to make your stride feel stable — no rolling to one side or the other. If you have sensitive joints, you should look for more padding in the heel. These running shoes have flex grooves that help them bend naturally with your foot. Getty Images Flex groovesWhat it is: On the forefoot portion of the shoe, flex grooves are part of the outsole that help the shoe bend like a foot naturally bends. These little indentations allow you to roll through a stride rather than smack the ground with a flat foot. What to look for: A shoe that bends the way you want your foot to bend, and ideally matches the pace at which your foot rolls. Don’t be timid — take a few laps around the store. Heel-toe dropWhat it is: This refers to the difference, in millimeters, between the height of the heel cushioning and forefoot cushioning. Most shoes, except very minimalist ones, have at least a small heel-toe drop. What to look for: A drop that feels natural and comfortable: You shouldn’t feel like you’re wearing high heels. 3:45 The 17 best health and fitness apps for Apple Watch Share your voice Tags Comment Fitness
Actress Sophie TurnerGetty ImagesGame of Thrones season 8 has received negative reviews for poor writing and mediocre execution of such an eminent story. Sophie Turner has a word or two for all those who have something negative to say about HBO’s Emmy Award-winning fantasy drama.In a recently released interview with The New York Times, Sophie Turner talked about all the negative comments coming from the fans and how those trolls and online petitions are actually disrespectful to everyone involved with the show.We talked about the disappointed fans and how there were several loose ends in the story which the writers did not cover. At the same time, by the end, it did not even feel like watching a series that beheaded its protagonist in the very first season. It felt more like a happy-go-merry kind of tale where everyone happily lived ever after. As we earlier stated, an online petition titled, “Remake Game of Thrones season 8 with competent writers” has got more than 1.3 million signatures.”All of these petitions and things like that — I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season,” Sophie Turner said during her interview. “Like 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.” Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark for more than eight years, further stated that fans had a perception as to how the series is going to end and when things did not go the way fans wanted, they started to talk about it like this.In the final episode of Game of Thrones season 8 titled “The Iron Throne,” Sophie Turner’s character, Sansa Stark, was appointed as the Queen in the North. As per the 22-year-old Sophie, Sansa would be a loving ruler in the North as this is the place where she truly belongs. This is Sansa always wanted, to go back to her home and protect her people.Sophie Turner will next be seen playing the role of Jane in the upcoming X-Men: The Dark Phoenix movie. The movie is slated to release on June 5, 2019.
A man holds the flags of India and the U.S. while people take part in the 35th India Day Parade in New York August 16, 2015.Reuters fileApplicants from India for EB-5 (employment-based fifth preference) visas are expected to decline by up to 80 percent, according to CanAm Investor Services, one of the leading provider of this immigration-linked investment programme.The forecast comes amidst a proposal by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to increase the investment amount from $0.5 million to $1.3 million for EB-5 visa applications by next year, newswire PTI reported on Sunday.The employment-based fifth preference category (EB-5) visa is meant for high net worth investors to earn the green card, which offers permanent residency in the U.S. for themselves and their immediate family through a one-time minimum investment of $500,000 into a new U.S. business that creates 10 or more jobs for the Americans.As per the estimates of the New York-based CanAm, the proposed increase in investment can result in a fall of about 80 percent applications from India, which is expected to become one of the largest applicant countries (for EB-5) in the world.The number of EB-5 visa applicants from India has more than doubled since 2014 and the country is expected to become the second largest applicant country in the world.In fiscal 2017, over 500 Indians applied for EB-5 visas against 354 a year earlier.”Depending on the increase in the amount, the number of applicants from here may fall anywhere from 50 to 80 percent,” CanAm Investor Services vice- president for India and Middle East Abhinav Lohia told PTI.Till recently, Chinese investors used to account for around 90 percent of all participants under the EB-5 visa programme. But, owing to growth in India, Vietnam and other countries, China’s applications (via CanAm) in the EB-5 visa have declined to less than 70 percent.

The Associated PressThe family of a Florida man killed by a sheriff’s deputy in his home has been awarded 4 cents by a federal jury.The jury ruled May 31 that 30-year-old Gregory Hill Jr. was 99 percent responsible for his death because he was drunk and the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office was 1 percent responsible. TCPalm reports the jury awarded Hill’s relatives $4, of which they get 1 percent—that works out to 1 cent for his funeral and 1 cent each for his three children.Gregory Hill Jr. and Monique Davis with their daughters Destiny Hill, left, and Aryanna Hill, right. (Screengrab)Deputy Christopher Newman and his partner went to Hill’s home in 2014 for a loud music complaint. After they knocked on the garage and front doors, Hill opened the garage. When the door started back down, Newman fired through the door, killing Hill. An unloaded gun was found in Hill’s back pocket.Tests showed Hill’s blood-alcohol content was 0.40, five times the driving limit.Hill’s fiancee, Monique Davis, told TCPalm she could not stay in the courtroom during the verdict reading of the verdict.“It was basically a slap in the face. You value someone’s life as one dollar?” she reportedly said.Family attorney John Phillips also told the news outlet that jurors were confused by the instructions given by the judge. He said he plans to ask for a new trial.“A finding of no negligence and no civil rights violations is one thing,” he said, “but the series of one-dollar awards for these kids was shocking, upsetting and confusing.”

Airing from 1985 through to 1992 and starring Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty in the lead roles, The Golden Girls has gone down in history as one of the most beloved sitcoms of all times, and in 2020, fans of the show will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to climb aboard a cruise ship for a very special Golden Girls event. CNN reports that the five-day cruise will set sail on February 24, 2020 from the port of Miami, FL, which is the city where the girls themselves lived on the show.The cruise will sail down along the Florida coastline, stopping off at Key West along the way, before heading across the Caribbean Sea to call at the Mexican island of Cozumel and finally heading home.The Celebrity Millennium cruise ship docked in Nassau, Bahamas. Photo by Captain-tucker CC BY-SA 3.0The whole cruise will be themed around the popular NBC sitcom, including various special events like a cheesecake party, a bar crawl, a fancy dress party, a bingo night, and a karaoke night, with plenty of humorous references to the show and opportunities for passengers to meet fellow fans and indulge their adoration for Rose, Blanche, Dorothy and Sophia.The cruise is being organized by Flip Phone Events, a travel company specializing in themed cruises, and will be taking place on board the Celebrity Infinity. A Millennium Class cruise ship, the Infinity is ranked as one of the finest vessels in the Celebrity fleet.It measures over 960 feet in length and features all kinds of amenities and facilities including a rooftop terrace, an outdoor movie theater, multiple restaurants, luxury suites, and more.This cruise will represent an amazing chance for long-time watchers of the show to live out some of their favorite moments and share their love with hundreds of other fans. Demand for tickets is expected to be quite high, with equally high asking prices to match — tickets for a regular cabin are expected to cost around $1,000, with larger and more luxurious cabins available at higher price points.The Golden Girls was, after all, a very successful show. It won multiple Emmy Awards, as well as several Golden Globes during its seven-season run. It’s also been ranked as one of the funniest, best-written, and most enjoyable shows ever made by many critics and experts. It often features in top 10 lists of the best sitcoms in TV history and has legions of fans of all ages.Bea ArthurEven now, many years after the show ended, The Golden Girls is still gaining new fans and followers as younger generations learn about the show and enjoy the quick-witted comedy and big personalities of the four main characters. Sadly, only Betty White remains as the sole surviving member of the main cast, but the show’s legacy is clearly stronger than ever.Golden Girls has had a strong influence on many modern sitcoms and pop culture in general.

Disney have been running themed cruises around their various films and franchises for years, with recent examples being Star Wars and Avengers-themed cruises, and there have also been cruises based around shows like The Walking Dead and Star Trek.Read another story from us: Golden Girl Bea Arthur was one of the First Female Marines to Serve in WWIIJust like comic and movie conventions, these kinds of events are a lot of fun for the fans, giving everyone an opportunity to dress up, meet like-minded people, have fun, and celebrate the shows, films, books, video games, and other forms of entertainment they love. The Golden Girls cruise is set to be another fine example, and fans are already looking forward to booking their tickets.

Posted by SAN JOSE, CA — Regardless of age, gender or region of the world, travellers say their biggest pet peeve when flying is the person sitting right behind them kicking their seat. That’s one of the many findings of a new international survey on the global travel experience.The new study indicates that today’s travellers are highly sensitized to the need for careful preparation. They’re doing more research on destinations, seeking better travel deals, and purchasing travel insurance to protect against travel disruptions, emergency medical needs, and other global risks. Travellers are also looking to benefit from loyalty and rewards programs, as well as special services that make travel easier and more manageable.The research was conducted by the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Council’s GeoBranding Center in partnership with AIG Travel, a worldwide leader in travel insurance and global assistance services. “The Adept Traveler: How to Care Less about Travel Stress” is based on responses from more than 2,100 American, European and other global travellers via an online survey fielded this summer by the CMO Council and Travelzoo.Western Europe remains the favourite destination of travellers around the world in 2016. Some 28.7% of all respondents identified Western Europe as the most desirable place to visit. A third of North Americans said Western Europe is their favorite destination, more than the 29% who identified the U.S. as their favourite. By comparison, a third of Western Europeans said their home region was their favourite destination, compared to only 11.4% who chose the U.S. The top four most popular destinations in order were Western Europe, the U.S., Asia-Pacific and the Caribbean.More news: Canada raises travel warning amid escalating protests in Hong KongTravel Stress and StrainThe study explores the top causes of travel stress and what travellers are doing to address these issues. Chief among their biggest frustrations are flight delays and cancellations (66.5%), researching and finding deals (38%), sickness or injury during a trip (37.2%), crowds and congestion at travel points (36.1%), airport security (28.2%) and luggage weight and size problems (27.1%).Travellers said that when on an airplane, their top pet peeves were first and foremost people behind them who constantly kicked their seat (56.9%), followed by people who recline their seats too far (33.6%), loud people (32.2%), crying babies (25.5%), and passengers who take more than their share of overhead bin space (24.5%).Asked whether and what kind of fellow traveller they found most difficult, slightly less than half (49.7%) said they had no problems travelling with anyone. Some (24.6%) identified strangers as the people they were likely to have the most problems, followed by children (17.8%), a boss (16.2%) and extended family (14.2%).The worst situations that travellers said they had experienced first-hand were trip or flight cancellations, illness, theft of a wallet or other possession, and lost luggage that was never found.Today’s Prepared TravellerThe importance of research and planning to improve the travel experience was a major recurring theme among travellers.
