    Review of Workout Headphones Yurbuds When running, any old iPod earbud just won't do. Earphones that slip off easily can distract you and keep you from meeting your workout goals, and who wants low quality sound when they need an extra heartbeat raising boost from their playlist? Nike Free Run 2 That's why you need a good pair of earphones that are designed to stay snugly in your ears while you work out. We tested out five types of workout designed earphones meant to stay put while elevating your auditory experience. Keep clicking to read the reviews, and check out more earphones designed to stay put. Motivated to don a pair and go for a run? Don't forget to enter our Get Fit For 2012 giveaway for fabulous prizes that will also revamp your workout. Cheap Nike Shoes Pros: There's a reason why these earphones are endorsed by the Ironman competition: the Yurbuds Ironman Inspire Pro earphones ($60) stay put no matter what. Once you twist the molded silicone buds into your ear, you get crystal clear, secure sound. The Y shaped three button Dry Mic is a useful tool during runs: it includes three buttons to control your music easily as well as to take calls, and it's placed in a convenient spot on the cord that makes accessing it easy. Cons: You have to make sure you twist them into your ear for them to be secure; a couple of times they fell out while I was running because I hadn't, and since the left and right designators are hard to read, getting them back on while running can be a hassle. Also, I found that the silicone buds fell off the earphones rather easily when I wasn't using my pair, so carrying them in the included zippered pouch is a must. The button controls don't work for Android phones (they do work for iOS devices). In the box: Headphones, different sized buds, and zippered pouch Pros: The unique flat design of the a Jays Four iPhone earphones ($70) means that these headphones don't get tangled which is good news if you are used to chucking your headphones in your purse and gym bag. Cons: The in ear noise of the headphones rubbing against my clothing while I ran was way more pronounced using this pair than the others I tested, which made for a less enjoyable sound experience (I also found the sound quality to be a tad tinnier than the others). The three button controls on the headphones (for use on iOS devices like iPhones and iPods) is placed too high on the cord. cnvnclkv In the box: Headphones and different sized buds Pros: The Skullcandy Fix In Ear earphones ($70) are comfortable, and they offer high quality sound that is well rounded and deep. For the most part, the slanted, hook like design kept the simple rounded buds snugly in my ear. Cons: Every once in a while, I'd start a run thinking that my earphones were secure only to have one fall out when I started. Also, while the Fix headphones were comfortable when I first put them on, I always started feeling a dull ache when I had them on for an hour or longer. Nike Running Shoes In the box: Headphones, zippered pouch, and different sized buds Pros: Over the ear headphones tend to irritate me after awhile, but the Polk Audio UltraFit 3000 ($100) headphones were soft and flexible enough to keep me comfortable. Other user friendly details include a simple screw in design that lets you change out the bottom half of your headphone cords to one of three lengths, and prime placement of the volume and phone controls (which work for iOS devices). The bud fittings were also the most comfortable out of the ones I tested. Cons: While I loved having a choice when it comes to cord length, the lengths don't entirely work if you wear your music device on your wrist (I used the Polk Audio headphones with the MotoACTV wristband, and I found that the distance from wrist to ear was in between the longest and second longest options). In the box: Different sized buds, three sizes of cords, headphones, and zippered pouch Nike Outlet Pros: Like the Yurbuds, Sculpted Eers use silicone molded buds to fit snugly into your ear. But the Sculpted Eers PS 100 ($200) take it a step further by using a unique molding technology that expands and shapes the bud right in your ear. The custom fit made these the most noise canceling of all the ones I tested, which also meant I could listen at a lower volume during my runs while still maintaining a high quality sound. In addition to the molded buds, the over ear design made for even more security. No matter if I was jumping, sprinting, or jogging, these headphones didn't budge. Cons: While the results were worth it, it's important to note that it takes a bit of prep and instruction reading (or a professional fitting) to mold the buds to your ear. During the fitting process, the sensation of expanding silicone in your ears, while not unendurable, doesn't exactly feel pleasant. Also, even with the customized fit, the buds still felt uncomfortable after wearing them for an extended period of time (they did, however, feel more comfortable the more I wore them). And while these earphones are high quality and fit securely, the price tag is high.

    Review of Yakult Probiotic Drink I first said "yeah" to Yakult because I love saying the word "Yakult." I also love probiotics to promote healthy digestion. Plus, this probiotic drink comes in cute little bottles about the size of a shot glass, so it seemed like a fun way to drink healthy. Yakult isn't a yogurt; it's a "fermented dairy drink" first produced in Japan and contains live, probiotic cultures to help boost your immune system and the good bacteria in your tummy. Sold in packs of five, the 2.7 fluid ounce bottles can be downed as drinks, but I also enjoyed it poured over cereal in place of milk. So how does it taste? I was surprised by how sweet Yakult tastes; it has a tart, almost fruity flavor that, believe it or not, reminds me of Sweet Tarts. Thankfully, I poured it over a cereal that wasn't sweet; otherwise it might have been a bit much. I expected it to be thicker, but it's barely as thick as milk. Replica Louis Vuitton Wallets Nutritionally, Yakult's results are mixed. Each tiny bottle enough to cover your cereal contains 50 calories, 11 grams of sugar, and zero fat with just one gram of protein. So while it's packed with probiotics, it doesn't offer much in the way of protein or calcium. Unfortunately, the ingredients aren't all natural either: water, sugar, skim milk powder, glucose, artificial flavors, and lactobacillus casei shirota (the cultures). For that reason, I probably won't make Yakult a habit, but it was a nice change from yogurt or milk. Find out where it's carried near you. Do you Yakult? Louis Vuitton Replica In india it is available now. I took around 7 bottles in 2 days. Does it have any effect on digestion. It tastes good and my kid loves it. Each bottle cost Indian Rupees Rs 10. It comes in 5 pack that is Rs 50. Does it make sense to drink such expensive one. I have not found any special difference cnvnclkv Louis Vuitton Outlet Skimmed Milk Powder, Water, Sugar, Glucose. Contains Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota, added natural natural identical flavours. It has a shelf life of 40 days, when refrigerated below 10C. There are no preservatives in Yakult. Per Serving50 Kcal0.8 g12 g 4 years mamasitama probiotics are strains of bacteria that live in your intestines that help your body break down fiber and make vitamin K and other nutrients. Lactobacillus species and Bifida regularis are the most common ones that are added to foods. I actually don't usually buy into them because if you eat enough fruits and vegetables, these bacteria will grow on their own in your guts and will prevent the harmful bacteria from setting up colonies. Replica Louis Vuitton Handbags This Yakult stuff sounds kind of nasty to me. I don't like sweet milk, especially on cereal. At first I thought maybe it would be like kefir, but it sounds like it's probably not. Plus, there is hardly any protein in it, so I'll have to pass on this stuff.

    Shark Jumping the Surfer Viral Video You probably saw this video over the weekend of the spinner shark jumping over the surfer at New Smyrna Beach, Florida? It a rare moment caught on video and one that might make you wonder just what you encounter out in the deep blue this 4th of July holiday. We asked the weigh in so we don miss riding a single wave this weekend. cnvnclkv Ralph Lauren Polo Shirts Matt McClain, Surfer, Director of Marketing CommunicationsThe video was certainly interesting as that sort of jumping behavior, while common, hasn't been well documented on film and certainly not in proximity of surfers. Ralph Lauren T Shirts As far as surfers recreating in the ocean in proximity to sharks well, sadaknkj2 it is the ocean! Most surfers recognize that we share our surf breaks with sharks. Most of the time they tend to be fairly benign species leopard sharks, nurse sharks, angel sharks, etc., but also occasionally include larger species of predatory sharks, including tiger and white sharks. Ralph Lauren Kids Most of the time, we surfers never even know these sharks are there. On those few occasions, where surfers or swimmers do encounter sharks the sharks behavior typically ranges from mild curiosity to flat out disinterest. I think most seasoned surfers understand this and as such, take the presence of sharks in stride. Ralph Lauren Shirt Bottom line is that while the threat of shark attack always exists, surfers and bathers have much, much, much greater chance of getting hurt or killed traveling to and from the beach, then they do while they are in the water.

Nike Free 4.0 Sharks Sweater History

Nike Free 4.0 Sharks Sweater History

Nike Free Run 5.0 TEAL: On the road the Sharks wore teal with black and white V neck. Body stripes at bottom are white, black, gray, black and white. Sleeve stripes are white, black, gray, black and white. White with black trim on sweater numbers and name on back. Round logo on each shoulder. Triangle crest logo on front. Manufacturer logo and NHL crest embroidered on lower right back tail. Manufacturers: CCM (1991 92 to 1996 97), Nike (1997 98).

Nike Free 3.0 v4 WHITE: At home the Sharks wore white with teal and black V neck. Body stripes at bottom are teal, black, gray, black and teal. Same design on lower half of each sleeve. Teal with black trim on sweater numbers and name on back. Round logo on each shoulder. Triangle crest logo on front. Manufacturer logo and NHL crest embroidered on lower right back tail. Manufacturers: CCM (1991 92 to 1996 97), Nike (1997 98).

These sweaters debuted at a time when the entire National Hockey League changed over to the Rbk EDGE Uniform System. This was the first time an entire North American professional league embraced a uniform sadaknkj2 innovation. These sweaters utilized technologically advanced materials and fabrics that are more breathable, more water resistant, more comfortable and more compatible with equipment.

But the major change came in the look, starting with the crest. The primary crest still had the shark chomping down on a hockey stick, but the updated look incorporated more Pacific Teal (the primary color) and emphasized speed, strength and determination. The eight supporting marks (with most of them making their way onto each of the sweaters) also utilized the same characteristics right down to the showing of the shark tail.

TEAL: Worn as the home sweater, which featured a stripe sequence on the mid arm and below the main crest on the tail. The player number, which is white with orange and black trim, is located on the sleeves, above the main crest on the front and on the back of the jersey. The shoulders are black with white trim. Each shoulder has the full jumping shark logo. The V neck collar is composed of a black orange white stripe sequence. The name on the back, located above the numbers, is white with black trim. cnvnclkv

Nike Free Run Womens THIRD: The alternate sweater made its debut during the 2008 09 season. The all black sweater combined the classic tradition of previous Sharks sweaters with the updated look that debuted in 2007 08. The full body Shark logo was used as the crest. The sleeve stripes featured two white stripes bordering a thicker swatch of Deep Pacific Teal. The shoulder patches displayed a shark fin in a diamond with the letters The sweater numbers on the sleeves and back were white with teal trim. The name on the back was on white letters. Finally, the third sweater had a neck, a subtle homage to hockey sweaters of the past.
