CHRISTOPHER WARD LAUNCHES ITS FIRST BRONZE TIMEPIECE

A timepiece that could be said to be bespoke for every owner, the new C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 watches will each be a limited edition of only one, owing to each piece’s ability to develop its own distinctive patina.

Premium watch brand Christopher Ward is delighted to announce the launch of their first bronze timepiece, the C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600. Because bronze begins to oxidise on contact with moisture, either in the air or on skin contact, each touch from the watch’s handler will initiate the aging process; the first finger prints becoming the basis for the development of a patina which will then continue to advance as the watch is worn and exposed to air. The watch is therefore individualised to its owner and becomes its own unique ‘special edition’.

Mike France, Co-Founder of Christopher Ward, said: “As Christopher Ward’s first bronze watch, and with each piece undertaking a personalised oxidation process, the C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 is a truly unique addition to the bestselling Trident series. With our characteristic commitment to delivering premium quality without passing excessive costs on to our customers, we are hugely excited to introduce a bronze timepiece that is both steeped in heritage, yet available at a far more competitive price point than usually found.”

The first corrosion-resistant metal alloy known to man, bronze was a vital material to ancient warfare and sea faring however the material has only relatively recently been adopted by watchmakers. The first bronze watch cases were crafted as recently as the 1980s, with many watch brands experimenting with the material, particularly for divers’ watches.

Due to the complex manufacturing process which requires an extraordinary level of care and attention to prevent the oxidation process from materialising too soon, bronze watches of this quality have previously only been available from brands with an extravagant price tag attached. With their usual diligence, the brand has created a one-of-a-kind timepiece, which will be available at an accessible price point (RRP £795).

Since bronze alloys vary in formula, their coatings have varied effects; some age into copper, others into brown, yellow or green tones. Christopher Ward’s bronze, a Japanese-made multi-alloy bronze of copper and tin, ages to a discreet and distinguished copper brown with delicate textured hues for an individual, ‘vintage’ authenticity. Each piece will also evolve over time as it is handled, for a bespoke finish that is personalised to each individual owner.

The C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 can be worn up to depths of 600m and is complete with a Swiss made automatic Sellita SW200 movement. The signature Trident case design is expressed in multi-alloy bronze throughout, including the bezel, middle case and crown with a stainless steel backplate. To enhance the unusual metal’s colour, the dial is then presented in a deep-hued, marine blue with a smooth-textured matte effect. Hour and minute hands are picked out in light bronze-coloured plating and covered with A-Grade SLN Light Old Radium GL lume paint. The characteristic second hand with its signature Trident counterbalance has also received the bronze-coloured plating to contrast against the marine blue dial. Baton-style, lume-covered indexes then complete the distinguished yet purposeful dial design. To complement the rugged bronze look and dial hue, the C60 Trident Bronze is available with a heavy textured blue canvas webbing strap, with cream-white stitching.

RISE OF THE SILVER SOARER

-Majority of UK drone owners are over 50 years old-

-68% started droning to take photos and videos-

UPTAKE OF DRONES and flying gadgets is soaring in those aged 50 and over, signaling the rise of the ‘silver soarer’.

It is often assumed that stereotypically younger people tend to be the first to adopt new technologies, the majority of drone users in the UK (31%) are aged 55 and over, compared to just one in ten (10%) who are aged 18-24, according to research published in the Drone Usage Report 2017 by leading drones and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) retailer, DronesDirect.co.uk.

Those aged 45-54 are the next most likely to own a drone (28%) while just 12% of 25-34 year olds own this type of technology. One in five (19%) 35-44 year olds say they currently own a drone.

68% of those who had started droning in the past 12 months credited photography as the reason for taking up the hobby.

Drones are suited to outdoor activities and walks in scenic countryside and many drone owners have these types of hobbies in their spare time while not using a drone with 45% of drone owners confessing to preferring a hike or walk in their spare time when not using a drone, and almost 1 in 5 (18%) taking part in extreme sports.

Mark Kelly, marketing manager at DronesDirect.co.uk, said “It’s great to see such a variety of generations embracing new technology and taking to the skies. Droning is no longer a niche hobby enjoyed solely by early adopters, and is being enjoyed by a wider proportion of society.

“The older generations may have higher disposable incomes and sometimes have more free time which could be a contributing factor to the soaring popularity. A rise in ownership among the older demographics can also be attributed to the flying gadgets being gifted as Christmas and birthday presents in recent years.”

Research found that a large proportion of drone users are male (96%).

The largest UK drones retailer, DronesDirect.co.uk operates a ‘try before you buy’ service on the latest drones within its dedicated in-store Drone Zone.

DronesDirect.co.uk has previously pledged its commitment to helping ensure safe and responsible drone usage via its Customer Charter, and has called on other major retailers to follow its lead.

DOG GONE BREATH LAUNCHES NEW ALL-NATURAL FRESH BREATH REMEDY FOR DOGS

December 4, 2017 (Westlake Village, CA) – Dog Gone Breath announced today the launch of an all-new natural fresh breath remedy for dogs. The revolutionary new formula is currently available in chewable tablet form and the company will introduce a powder in the new year.

After years of suffering with her own dog’s bad breath, Dog Gone Breath founder, Jenna Fishoff, figured there had to be something out there to address this. She couldn’t find it, so she developed her own solution.
Bad breath in dogs has many causes, which are typically symptomatic of an underlying health issue. The two most common causes of halitosis, the medical term for bad breath, in dogs come either from the mouth (periodontal) or the gut (gastrointestinal tract). While most products sold in the marketplace mask the symptoms by giving the dog a mint, Dog Gone Breath goes after the root causes and works on eliminating the source of the problem. Dog Gone Breath promotes an overall healthier and happier dog.
“I just couldn’t take it anymore,” laughs Fishoff. “My dog would get in my face and I’d almost choke! Thankfully after much research and development, we have a great product that really works.”
The ingredients in Dog Gone Breath are all natural and include Cardamom Seed Powder, Carrot Powder, Chicory Root (Inulin), Chlorella Powder, Cinnamon, Coconut Oil Powder, Ginger Root Extract, Kelp, Licorice Root Extract, Manuka Honey, N-Acetylcysteine, Papain Powder, Parsley Powder, Peppermint Leaf Powder, Slippery Elm Bark Powder, Tumeric Powder, and Yucca Schidigera. Available exclusively at www.doggonebreath.com with an MSRP of $19.99 for 60 tablets and 3.5 ounce powder, and $34.99 for 120 tablets.
About Dog Gone Breath

When she couldn’t find one, she developed her own solution: Dog Gone Breath. The two most common causes of halitosis, the medical term for bad breath, come from the mouth (periodontal) or the gut (gastrointestinal tract). While most products sold in the marketplace mask the symptoms by giving the dog a mint, Dog Gone Breath goes after the root causes and works on eliminating the source of the problem.

How the Moon Regained Her Shape by Janet Ruth Heller (Arbordale, 4th edition 2014) is a picture book about bullying influenced by Native American legends.

The link to the e-book for reviewers is http://www.arbordalepublishing.com/eBooks/reader/book/index.php?

Her friends include rabbits and Native Americans. Then she regains her full shape, happiness, and self-esteem, and she returns to her orbit. An educational appendix gives advice about bullying, scientific information about the moon, and ideas for related activities for children. Illustrator Ben Hodson won a Benjamin Franklin Award for this book?s artwork in 2007. How the Moon Regained Her Shape also won a Book Sense Pick (2006), a Children?s Choices award (2007), and a Gold Medal in the Moonbeam Children?s Book Awards (2007).

Almost a fifth of employees have had a severe warning due to their Christmas party behaviour

A London-based boutique corporate events company has revealed research it has conducted over the last few years on work Christmas party behaviour and created a quiz for the public to take to see what type of office Christmas party person they are. The results reveal that on average almost a fifth of employees have had a severe warning due to their Christmas party behaviour and a tenth have been sacked.

As businesses around the UK begin organising the office Christmas party, a boutique corporate events company has released a ‘what office Christmas party person are you’ quiz for members of the public to take ahead of the festivities.

Team Tactics has created the multiple-choice quiz based on personality and lifestyle questions that have been created in line with research it has collected from its customer database, post-Christmas party over the last 2 years.

To take the quiz click here: https://www.teamtactics.co.uk/blog/2017/11/14/christmas-office-party-quiz/

The anonymous research Team Tactics conducted investigated what each respondent did at their office Christmas party, including whether they got drunk, didn’t drink at all, made out with a colleague, told their boss they hated their job or fell asleep for example.

The research also revealed that on average almost a fifth (19%) of employees have had a severe warning due to their Christmas party behaviour and a tenth (8%) have been sacked. Just less than a third (27%) said they avoided getting drunk at their office Christmas party in case they embarrassed themselves in front of their boss and co-workers.

Team Tactics profiled respondents based on a series of personality and lifestyle questions, their likes and dislikes and hobbies and discovered correlations between the answers and their office Christmas party behaviour.

Outcomes of the quiz can be: mistletoe lurker, drunken shame, backdoor shuffler and co-worker kiss chase.

Founded in 1996, Team Tactics is a boutique corporate events company based in London. It has a number of team building events available, as well as bespoke client or staff events. Team Tactics has worked successfully with a number of high-end brands such as Facebook, Microsoft and Google. Some of Team Tactics’ flagship themed team-building events parody franchises including the Apprentice, James Bond and Robot Wars, as well as a charity treasure hunt.

Tina Benson, managing director at Team Tactics said,

“Office Christmas parties are always an interesting time of the year, it seems that employees are either really excited or get nervous about attending! I think the way you feel about office work parties is highly personal, so we decided to do a little digging and see if there are ‘types’ of Christmas work party people, and our research indicates there definitely is!

“If people want to steer away from the generic office Christmas parties, there are other options available, which is what we cater for. Bonding with your co-workers is important, you probably see these people five days a week and establishing a good relationship is crucial for a productive workplace.”

‘THE LEADER IN ITS FIELD’: BLACKPOOL PARK VOTED THE UK’S BEST IN 2017

Public names Stanley Park in Blackpool as the UK’s Best Park for 2017
Public nominated 360 parks from across the UK with over 15,000 votes cast
National awards celebrates the UK’s green spaces and champions the people behind them

Blackpool’s Stanley Park has been voted by the public as the UK’s Best Park at the prestigious annual Fields in Trust Awards 2017. Designed by celebrated landscape architect Thomas Mawson in the 1920s, the park which boasts an Italian marble fountain, boating lake, bandstand, Medici lions, Italian gardens and Art Deco styled café, has scooped the headline award at the annual Fields in Trust Awards 2017.

Each year the Fields in Trust Awards showcases some of the UK’s best open spaces, and shines a light on the efforts and achievements of the people whose tireless dedication ensures that these vital outdoor spaces can be enjoyed by the public. Now in their sixth year, the Awards are organised by The Fields in Trust Charity, which counts His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge as its President and protects the UK’s vital open spaces, from sports pitches to children’s playgrounds, bicycle trails and country parks, safeguarding them for future generations.

For the third year running the UK’s Best Park Award, voted for by the public, celebrates the nation’s favourite park. This year the public nominated 360 parks in total from across the UK, with over 15,000 votes cast. The finalists shortlisted included Craigavon City Park in County Armagh, Roath Park in Cardiff and Rouken Glen Park in East Renfrewshire. The award was presented by former Wales and Lions rugby player Brynmor Williams, Chairman of The Fields in Trust Wales Committee. The celebratory dinner took place at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, hosted by TV sports broadcaster Jacqui Oatley.

Commenting on the UK’s Best Park Award 2017, Helen Griffiths, Chief Executive of Fields in Trust said: “On behalf of everyone here at Fields in Trust, I would like to congratulate Stanley Park. The UK’s Best Park Award is open to any green space regardless of whether or not it is protected in perpetuity with Fields in Trust. The people of Blackpool have sent a clear message that they love their local park and I hope that Blackpool Council will recognise this by working with us to safeguard Stanley Park as a place for community sport, play and recreation forever.”

Parks and Green Spaces Minister Marcus Jones said:

“Many congratulations to Stanley Park on being voted the UK’s Best Park 2017 in the Fields in Trust Awards. The public support shown for this park and all the finalists highlights just how much the residents of Blackpool and local communities more widely care about their treasured green spaces. Through the new Parks Action Group we have a great opportunity to ensure our parks remain places to be proud of for generations to come.”

Other successes of the night included Kimberley Mpukusa who scooped the Young Champion Award. An avid tennis player, Kimberley has been actively involved in the BME Sport Cymru project, engaging and inspiring women and young people from BME communities. Her achievements in tennis alongside the challenges she has overcome in her life, have been an inspiration to those around her.

Friends Group of the Year, an award which recognises the contribution of passionate communities to their local parks, was awarded to Friends of Angel Meadow, Manchester. The group was formed in 2004 to campaign for the park’s regeneration, and since then has transformed an abandoned, unloved site into a green retreat amid the bustle of the city.
