Omega Counts Down

 

OMEGA SPEEDMASTER CHRONOSCOPE PARIS 2024

 
The Olympic Games Paris 2024 begins in just 100 days, and the Official Timekeeper OMEGA has marked the moment with a new Speedmaster Chronoscope in the colors of the competition.

The new Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024 43 mm series has four available models, each presented in the gold, black, and white colourway of the Olympic Games Paris 2024. This includes a version in full stainless steel with an anodized aluminium bezel, and another with a ceramic bezel and 18K Moonshine™ Gold case and bracelet – OMEGA’s own yellow gold alloy, known for its subtle hue and long-lasting shine.

Most notable on each watch is the silvery white opaline dial, which is transferred with three dark grey timing scales in a 1940’s “snail” design. These include a tachymeter scale, a pulsometer scale, and a telemeter scale, bringing a wide range of measurements to the wrist. Other details are the blackened subdials, Arabic numerals in 18K Moonshine™ Gold, and leaf-shaped hands and subdial hands that are Moonshine™ Gold coated. Read More

New Jersey to Hawaii: Surfing USA

Spring Skiing Montana: 3 Days in Bozeman

 

 

When I headed out to Bozeman, Montana last week for a quick 3-day ski trip, I assumed those 3 days would be spent at Big Sky. It was one of the few ski resorts out west I hadn’t skied and been at the top of my list. As the name implies, Big Sky encompasses a sprawling 5850 acres of Rocky Mountain skiing terrain, ranging from wide-open groomers to dynamic glades to challenging steeps, with more runs to ski than I’d ever jam into 3 days. Little did I know there are two other mountains to ski in the vicinity: Bridger Bowl, the community run mountain where the locals ski, and at the other end of the spectrum, the ultra-exclusive Yellowstone Club.

A few years ago a good friend of mine, Lynn Shanahan, moved out to Bozeman. We met on a press trip about 20 years ago when she was a Group President at Tommy Hilfiger and I was the Visual Editor at Self magazine. Tommy Hilfiger was sponsoring the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team at the time and had invited a handful of editors to Deer Valley, Utah to watch an Olympic lead-up competition. In the good old days of the print magazine business, our accommodations were at the world-famous Stein Erikson Lodge and the rest of the weekend followed suit in alpine luxury.

Lynn has quite the different life now, having opened up a bar and café in Gallatin Gateway, just southwest of Bozeman, called The Jump. Once a strip club, The Jump still has dancing but not on poles. She herself is a competitive ballroom dancer. With regular live music, locals and tourists alike, along with students from Montana State University in Bozeman, can be found on the dance floor nightly for some country western two-step and line dancing. They offer dance lessons too. Read More

Sunshine and Eggs

 

 

As winter starts to thaw, we put away the puffers, and peel off the layers, many of us have a spring awakening by what’s left underneath. The body is not as toned as we’d like, and there is a spring realization that it’s time for a spring cleaning. The search begins for a quick fix: a restrictive diet, cutting out a food group, intermittent fasting, a juice cleanse – something radical to lose that winter weight fast. But what if the answer was a back-to-basics approach of 3 balanced meals a day, real food, and eating more, not less?

Robin Barrie Kaiden MS, RD, CDN, CSSD, one of the nation’s leading experts in wellness, nutrition, and fitness, and frequent contributor to CBS, NBC, ABC, Parenting, and Forbes.com, among other media outlets, says of her 2-week Reset program, “It’s not a strict diet where you lose a pound only to gain three the next week. I want to teach people lifelong healthy habits to take with them going forward. The only way to lose weight and keep it off is to change your habits.”

Kaiden is a graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences and an Exercise Science minor. She has a Master of Science Degree from Columbia University as well. Her post graduate work was at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, studying nutrition and dietetics at the hospital level. Read More
