Each of the 10-odd pairs was hand-cobbled by one of Nike’s earliest employees Geoff Hollister. The shoes are made of nylon and sewn together with fishing line. The outsoles – shaped with waffle irons – are in two pieces as there was no better technology available then.Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods have announced that Nadal has acquired the 1972 Nike Waffle Racing Flat ‘Moon Shoe’ for $437,500 – more than four times the previous world auction record for any pair of sneakers, and in multiples of their pre-sale high estimate of $160,000.Nadal purchased the pair in an online-only auction, following his acquisition of 99 of 100 of the rarest sneakers ever produced.Stadium Goods, premier sneaker and streetwear marketplace, had curated a selection of the most prized footwear from their famed Trophy Case – the most exclusive and coveted sneakers ever produced by Nike, Air Jordan, Adidas, Yeezy and more, spanning over 15 years of the most sought-after, limited-edition drops in sneaker history.Also Read: Nike extends kit partnership with BrightonNadal had originally presented an offer to acquire the entire collection of 100 pairs. However Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods then elected to keep the pair available in public auction. Nadal could thus acquire only 99 pairs last week and the 1972 Nike Waffle Racing Flat “Moon Shoe’’ remained open for bidding in an online-only auction.An avid car collector, entrepreneur, industrialist and philanthropist, Nadal plans to display the sneaker collection at his Dare to Dream Automobile Museum in Toronto, Canada. The private museum features an extensive collection of classic cars. He plans to share the collection with friends, family and charitable organizations, upon request.“I am thrilled to acquire the iconic Nike ‘Moon Shoes,’ one of the rarest pairs of sneakers ever produced, and a true historical artefact in sports history and pop culture. When I initially acquired the 99 other pairs in this auction last week, I just knew the Nike’s had to remain part of this remarkable collection, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I think sneaker culture and collecting is on the verge of a breakout moment, and I hope Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods will continue to lead the way in this exciting new future,” said Nadal.Noah Wunsch, Sotheby’s Global Head of eCommerce, commented: “We are excited the iconic Nike Moon Shoe achieved more than double the previous world auction record for a sneaker today. The success of Sotheby’s & Stadium Goods Ultimate Sneaker Collection sale is a testament to the strength of this burgeoning collecting category. We’re thrilled that all 100 pairs of this exceptional selection of rare sneakers will remain together with Miles in his private museum. To partner with Stadium Goods, the world’s premier sneaker marketplace at the forefront of the culture, on Sotheby’s very first sneaker sale – which was 100% sold! – is an amazing thrill. We are eager to see where this sale takes us, not only infuture sneaker offerings, but also in other new luxury lifestyle areas.”John McPheters, Stadium Goods co-founder and co-CEO, said: “We’re extremely pleased that the Moon Shoe ended up in the hands of a collector who has the intention of preserving and displaying this incredible piece of sneaker history, and sharing it with the world.”Nadal’s automobile collection includes 142 cars and 40 motorcycles which comprise the Dare to Dream Classic Car collection. The collection ranges from the first motorized car in 1886 – The Karl Benz Motorwagen – to the 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing, to most of the modern-day super cars. Housed in a private, 94,000 square foot facility at the Dare to Dream Automobile Museum in Toronto, Nadal’s precious possession also features a substantial collection of automobile and racing artefacts, collectibles, and antiques.Also Read: FIFA Women’s World Cup: Nike selling record number of US team jerseysNadal is the Founder and Executive Chairman of Peerage Capital, a leading North American business services and private investment firm with over $8 billion of assets under management and 1,500 employees. The firm’s business encompasses real estate, real estate services, asset management, and financial services. Throughout his 39-year business career, he has created $6 billion of enterprise value across a variety of industries and organizations. He is also the founder of Dare to Dream, a multi-faceted philanthropic initiative whose mission is focused on supporting community-based organizations, healthcare research and fundraising, child welfare facilities, and higher education development, from executive management leadership to bimolecular research.Through this array of charitable outreach, Nadal has spearheaded numerous projects, including providing the keystone gift to the Jewish Community Centre in Toronto to re-vitalize the facility as an inclusive community hub for all residents, now named the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre; providing three decades of involvement as a director, fundraiser and donor for Mount Sinai Hospital, culminating in a major donation to create the Miles Nadal Family Heart Centre in 2015, as well as being a substantial contributor to Harlem RBI and the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation; aiding the Global Medical Relief Fund in building a facility in Staten Island, New York, to care for childhood victims of war and disasters; and providing generous support in establishing world-class education facilities, such as the Miles S. Nadal Management Centre for York University’s Schulich School of Business and a molecular genetics research laboratory at The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.The Nike “Moon Shoe” is one of the most significant artefacts in the history of the multi-billion dollar athletic brand. One of only a handful of pairs known to exist, the present pair is a handmade running shoe designed by Nike co-founder and legendary Oregon University track coach Bill Bowerman. As the famous story goes, Bowerman was first inspired to create the innovative waffle sole traction pattern found on the brand’s early running shoes by tinkering with his wife’s waffle iron and pouring rubber into the mould to create the first prototype of the sole. Made for runners at the 1972 Olympic Trials, only about 12 pairs of the Moon Shoes were created, with even fewer still remaining today. The sneaker is the only pair known to exist in unworn condition.Also Read: Naomi Osaka silences reporters in a bold Nike commercial Brands Brands Previous articleEhsan Mani named chairperson of powerful ICC Finance CommitteeNext articlePGA TOUR names DraftKings Official Daily Fantasy Game Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

The elongated, south-facing building site offers a wonderful view into surrounding meadows and fields. The decision to position the building centrally on the plot, results in a layering of private and semi private outdoor areas north and south of the house. The carport with 2 storage boxes and a workshop forms a spatial barrier to the street and hides behind the leafy courtyard with a circular pergola. This introverted exterior serves as a buffer zone to the actual residential buildings. The internal organization of the two houses follows similar rules, but varies in shape and size. In both volumes, the living and dining area spreads on the ground floor as a large one-room over the entire depth of the building. A spatial structure is created by centrally positioned service rooms, kitchen and stairs. The bedrooms on the first floor benefit from floor to ceiling glazing, which provide views and spaciousness.Save this picture!© Karoline MayerRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAYou can enjoy nature on the south-facing wooden terrace, which stretches across the entire width of the building.

Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law March 12, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa News News RWB is outraged by armed Jihadi group’s latest propaganda method SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders is appalled by today’s release by Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (also known as Islamic State and ISIS) of a video in which John Cantlie, a British journalist held hostage since November 2012, is forced to deliver a statement defending the armed Jihadi organization.“This shameful piece of propaganda, coming on the heels of the recent barbaric beheadings, has taken Islamic State’s hostage-taking to new level of horror,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “By releasing a video of British journalist John Cantlie speaking under duress, after staging the beheadings of US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, ISIS is committing one war crime after another and is displaying its contempt for all human dignity. Cantlie must be released, like all the other hostages.”Entitled “Lend me your ears,” the three-minute video shows Cantlie and no one else. Dressed in orange, like the Guantanamo Bay detainees and like the hostages who were previously executed, he sits at a table and addresses the camera.Identifying himself as a British journalist who worked for leading publications such as the Sunday Times, Sun and Sunday Telegraph, he says:”In November 2012 I came to Syria where I was subsequently captured by the Islamic State. Now, nearly two years later, many things have changed including the expansion of the Islamic State to include large areas of eastern Syria and Western Iraq.“Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, ‘He’s only doing this because he’s a prisoner. He’s got a gun to his head and he’s being forced to do this,’ Right? Well, it’s true. I am a prisoner. That I cannot deny. But seeing as how I’ve been abandoned by my government and my fate now lies in the hands of the Islamic State, I have nothing to lose. “Maybe I will live, maybe I will die. But I want to take this opportunity to convey some facts that you can verify. Facts that if you contemplate might help preserving lives.”He then indicates that this is just the first of a series of videos designed to show how the western media try to turn pubic opinion against ISIS.“Over the next few programmes I’m going to show you the truth as the western media tries to drag the public back to the abyss of another war with the Islamic State.”Reporters Without Borders points out that such forced statements, the result of psychological torture, are regarded under international law as inhuman and degrading treatment.Cantlie was originally taken hostage with a Dutch journalist in northern Syria in July 2012. After being injured in an escape attempt, they were rescued a few weeks later by the Free Syrian Army. His recapture in November 2012 was the subject of a media blackout.Today’s video comes five days after ISIS released a video showing the beheading of British humanitarian aid worker David Haines, which was preceded by the videos showing the murders Foley and Sotloff.It also comes three days after an international conference in Paris to discuss military intervention in Iraq. Twenty-seven Arab and western countries and three international organizations attended the conference.

Gavin Newsom announced a statewide moratorium on water shutoffs for nonpayment in the midst of the deepening coronavirus public health crisis.This executive order follows a March 16 order that asks the California Public Utilities Commission to monitor measures taken by utility providers “to implement customer service protections for critical utilities,” including water.“Water is critical to our very lives, and in this time, it is critically important that it is available for everyone,” Newsom said in the press release.The order directs utility companies to restore water to residents that had water shut off since March 4.“This executive order will help people who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring they have water service,” Newsom said in a written statement after hinting at the action during an event broadcast online.The moratorium comes on the heels of a letter by Food & Water Action on behalf of its 172,000 California members, urging swift action to ensure that every state resident has access to clean, affordable water service for the duration of the Coronavirus pandemic.“We’re very pleased that Governor Newsom has made the common-sense decision to halt water shutoffs in the state while we confront this overwhelming public health crisis. He must also ensure that water is restored to every home where it was previously cut off. When the first instruction to every Californian is ‘wash your hands often,’ it’s crazy to think that many residents of the state don’t have that option in their own homes. Access to clean, safe water is a right that every Californian should have, in times of heath crises and in normal times as well.”“Thanks also to all of the grassroots organizations throughout the state that have been pressing the governor on this issue for many weeks.”Food & Water Action is running a nationally-used aggregate of local action on water service across the country since the spread of COVID-19 here.

The Falkland Islands are one segment of the Permo-Triassic Gondwanian Fold Belt that was displaced during the fragmentation of Gondwana. Palæomagnetic, structural and palæocurrent data, reviewed in this paper, provide convincing evidence that the Falkland Islands rotated from an original position off southeast Africa to their present position off South America during break-up. The rotation mechanism and trajectory are less certain but are an essential component of any plausible Gondwana break-up model. The Falkland Islands possess two roughly orthogonal structural grains. D1 structures form a southerly verging fold belt that correlates with the main folding in the eastern part of the Cape Fold Belt following relocation of the islands. D1 folds were overprinted by the Early Mesozoic D2, northeast-southwest trending, Hornby Mountains Anticline producing localised kilometrescale Type I and III fold interference patterns. It is suggested here that the D2 structures may represent a break-out structure related to a dextral transtensional shear couple that may have existed between East and West Gondwana during the initial stages of break-up. Clockwise rotation of the Falkland Islands Block (FIB) could have taken place along a series of east-west faults (e.g. the Gastre Fault Zone) in Patagonia as southern South America moved towards the Pacific during Middle Jurassic times. Contemporaneous Pacific-ward motion of southern South America during rotation of the FIB would have avoided collision with the Falkland Island Block as it docked. On a geological timescale, the break-out of the FIB and associated movements of other Gondwana fragments were rapid events, which appear to correlate with the major magmatic pulse at ca 183 Ma, related to a mantle plume beneath Africa and Antarctica. If this is correct, then doming above a large mantle plume in the South Atlantic region may have helped formation and rotation of Gondwana microplates, with rotation occurring above a viscously deforming, hotter-than-normal, substratum in a transtensional setting.

Indian billionaire sets his sights on UK new homes marketDubai-based Sobha Realty opens Park Lane sales office and plans to become major force in UK new homes sector and float on the London Stock Exchange.Nigel Lewis3rd May 20191 Comment2,525 Views An Indian billionaire property developer has arrived in the UK to set up shop in London and says he wants to be a major new player in the UK within three to four years.PNC Menon, who is a major house builder in many Indian states, Dubai and Oman, has opened a huge sales office ‘studio’ for his company Sobha Realty on London’s Park Lane at the site of Foxtons’ former flagship 4,800 sq ft branch.He aims to establish a £400 million turnover business in the UK by 2023 building apartments in the luxury market initially in central prime London.His firm then plans to move outside the capital and into the more affordable new homes sector, if all goes to plan.Sobha Realty’s arrival in the capital means the UK’s property market is to have a significant and well-funded new entrant to the new homes sector for the first time in decades.Billionaire backingThe 70-year-old dollar billionaire and his £270-million turnover company have considerable resources at their disposal including 3,700 employees around the world.But he says the company will be using UK contractors to build his first developments in central London supported by a team of in-house architects.Sobha Realty says it will also be looking for UK property industry partners and plans to eventually list on the London Stock Exchange.“London is a world city, with last year over 40 million visitors travelling to the capital for business and leisure, so this studio showcases our brand to the world,” he says.Park Lane PNC Menon Sobha Realty Foxtons May 3, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentJohn Socha, Orchard BMS Ltd Orchard BMS Ltd 3rd May 2019 at 1:36 pmEasy to see which market this billionaire is targeting. Prime central London. Until we solve the shortage of building trade workers, nothing but wonderful sounding pledges will remain just that.We need to emulate 1966. Not only did England win the World Cup in football, we also built over 400,000 new homes.Like football, we have been declining ever since.Sadly, no pundit has spotted this flaw in “The Cunning Plan” to build more houses. Not enough skilled building workers, so we will have to train them.Again, no plan, just platitudes.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
