Vogues Wintour Gets ASMEs Hall of Fame Nod

first_imgVogue’s high pharaoh of fashion, the prickly Anna Wintour, has received a high honor from the American Society of Magazine Editors. No, it’s not a new pair of her signature sunglasses. The group has elected the devilish editrix to its Magazine Editor’s Hall of Fame.Wintour [pictured] officially will be honored at the annual National Magazine Awards ceremony scheduled for April 22 in New York City.Her election to the Hall is no big shocker, really. She’s easily one of the most recognizable magazine editors—if not by name then by appearance—and has steered one of the industry’s biggest brands for more than two decades. Wintour began her fashion career in London in 1970 and launched into magazines six years later at Harper’s Bazaar. She later served as a senior editor at New York before transitioning to Vogue in 1983 as creative director. After a stint as editor-in-chief at British Vogue and as editor at HG, Wintour returned to the U.S. brand of Vogue as editor-in-chief in July 1988, where she currently resides, serving as editorial director.Sure, she’s been the target of some criticism and jokes and movies over the years, but that comes with the territory. It’s about time ASME recognized Wintour. She joins fellow Hall of Fame inductees including Hugh Hefner, Martha Stewart, Tina Brown and Jann Wenner.last_img read more

Hot Wheels ID adds Amiibostyle magic to its cars

first_img Tags 50 Photos Hot Wheels have been around for 51 years, and Mattel has experimented with funky tech in its cars before. A video racer doubled as a video camera. A GoPro-connectible Hot Wheels car could record close-ups of stunt footage. There was even a Rocket League Hot Wheels game set.Hot Wheels ID cars don’t have cameras, unfortunately, but the cars do look nice. They’re also more expensive than normal Hot Wheels, at $7 a pop. The packaging feels collectible, and the boxes are designed so you can scan your car into the Hot Wheels app without ever taking it out of the box. The car designs, including a funky hammerhead shark (my favorite), are…well, they’re Hot Wheels.21-hot-wheels-idThe $40 Portal piece that’s needed to record stats on the cars. Sarah Tew/CNET Tracking speed, laps and more (but you need the extras)When Mattel first described Hot Wheels ID, I expected a truly self-contained smart car. That’s not what these are. In fact, all sensing data is done off the car. It’s a basic toy, plus an NFC chip. The base Race Portal launcher has Bluetooth, IR sensors, and NFC, and measures the speed of a Hot Wheels ID car as it passes through. Now playing: Watch this: 2:26 Post a comment Sarah Tew/CNET My kids have Hot Wheels scattered all over our house, in boxes, under chairs. At a dollar a pop, they’re the cheap consolation prize at the supermarket. Hot Wheels is going a little more upmarket this year, embedding NFC chips into its newest line of cars. Hot Wheels ID (technically it’s “Hot Wheels id”) is like the Nintendo Amiibo of toy cars, aiming to be a new line of toys that scan into phones and tablets, and track lifetime race stats on a little chip inside. I got to play-race with the cars and Mattel’s Smart Track set that are launching today: here’s what they’re like.I say Amiibo because, really, Hot Wheels ID cars aren’t smart cars. They’re NFC-enabled, but they store data, they don’t actively record it. To know your Hot Wheels’ virtual miles an hour, or rpm, or laps raced, you’ll need some extra hardware: either a $40 Hot Wheels Race Portal, or a much more expensive $180 Smart Track race kit. In another unusual spin, Hot Wheels ID will be an Apple Store exclusive for now before expanding to Android later this year. Share your voice The speed is calculated into an estimate of the scale car’s miles-per-hour equivalent. The little smart gate can also count laps raced. The $40 portal comes with two cars, so it’s clearly the gift package Mattel envisions as the “starter pack.” The portal connects with existing Hot Wheels race track sets, so it can basically turn your old track into a “smart” one.07-hot-wheels-idThe launch cars for Hot Wheels ID (the shark one is my favorite) Sarah Tew/CNET But for the full experience, there’s the Smart Track ($180), which has a pump-accelerating launcher and zips cars along the course one by one. There’s not much to the “game” here…it’s nothing like what Anki’s robotic race cars did. Instead, you’re just seeing how fast you can get those cars to do laps before they fly off the track. (Hot Wheels fans, you’re familiar with what’s going on.) The Smart Track can also measure launch rpm and lifetime mileage for your cars, but $180 is a pretty big gift to ask for.11-hot-wheels-idNFC-equipped iPhones can scan the cars directly, something other toys haven’t done yet. Sarah Tew/CNET Scanning your car into an app gameMattel has a new Hot Wheels ID game app that stores the cars you scan in and turns it into a museum/arcade of sorts: you could look at details up close, study stats, or race in video games with the car. That’s a lot like many other app-ified toys, but Mattel sees this “mixed play” strategy as a way to not need the iPhone or iPad around all the time. Kids would play with the real toys in real life, and sometimes go to the screen, but not necessarily both. It’ll be interesting to see how that plays out over time as Hot Wheels ID expands.38-hot-wheels-idRacing on the $180 Smart Track, which needs a lot of table space (and pocket change). Sarah Tew/CNET A world of NFC toys to come?Maybe the most interesting part of Hot Wheels ID is that it can use the NFC capability on iPhones to scan directly in (for iPads, you’ll need the $40 portal as a car-scanner). iOS devices haven’t unlocked NFC for a lot of uses, and Hot Wheels are the first toys I’ve seen that do this. (The cars will work on Android in July, timed to Amazon Prime Day.) If Mattel is launching a bunch of cars that do this, maybe a lot more toys with NFC chips are next.Hot Wheels ID don’t seem revolutionary, and they’re not magic robot cars. But they look like a model for where all action figures, toys and collectibles are going next: being scannable.

The Ordeal Of A Houston Senior Citizen Who Lived Under A Blue

first_img X Editor’s note: This story was originally published on December 19, 2016Back in 2008, hurricane Ike damaged thousands of homes as it swept across the Houston region.Eight years later, hundreds of properties have not been repaired.Many can be identified by the blue tarps still on the roofs.Vallia Huff lived in one of the houses with blue tarps.Al OrtizVallia Huff, a retiree who lives in south Houston, lost her home’s roof after hurricane Ike swept the region, back in 2008.Ike’s strong winds knocked over a big tree onto Huff’s roof and, despite working hard on temporary fixes, she had to deal with water leaks for eight years.Multiple water-caused stains in her home’s walls and ceilings gave proof of the problem Huff was dealing with.“The scariest part about is the water is coming in on the electrical wiring and I’m afraid to put on the porch light because it might short out and then I have a house fire, and then I really would be in bad shape because I have nowhere else to go,” she told Houston Public Media back in September, when we visited her at home.Huff had a rough time with the torrential rains of 2015 and 2016.“It would just be a joy that when it rains I don’t have to move furniture, I don’t have to put a plastic bag over my head and it would be just a good feeling,” Huff explained when asked how a new roof would change her life.Al OrtizMultiple water caused stains and holes in her home’s ceilings gave proof of the problem Huff was dealing with.Besides, the damage was not limited to the structure of Huff’s home.“I had beautiful furniture in my home, wood furniture, old school furniture,” Huff recalled “but when you have that many floods and water is coming in your house three feet, or whatever, it’s gone. There’s no replacement and the insurance… You can’t replace it because the insurance says: ‘We don’t care anything about that wood furniture Miss Huff’.”We asked Huff about why she hadn’t been able to get a solid roof over her head for such a long period of time.She had a host of reasons to explain it.First, Huff says her insurance company made a mistake and her homeowner’s policy didn’t cover the repair after the devastation Ike caused.Then the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) denied her financial assistance.Al OrtizWorkers from a roofing company hired through the program launched by the City of Houston put a new roof on Huff’s home at the end of September.According to Huff, FEMA inspectors concluded the damage to her home was a pre-existing condition.After that, she turned to the non-profit Rebuilding Together Houston.Huff was told they didn’t have sufficient funds to replace her roof.And without enough cash on hand to pay for the repair herself, she learned to live with a leaky roof.“You’re sitting up trying to have a halfway decent home and you can’t,” Huff lamented.However, things changed with the election of Sylvester Turner as Houston’s Mayor.Turner is following through on a campaign promise to eliminate the blue tarps from the city’s landscape.Al OrtizWorkers from a roofing company hired through the program launched by the City of Houston put a new roof on Huff’s home at the end of September.“From day one I’ve talked about building complete communities and a part of building complete communities is taking homes with blue tarps on them from hurricane Ike from 2008 that have not been repaired and that are needing to be repaired and are simply deteriorating in front of us,” Turner noted in a press conference shortly after announcing the launch of the roof repairs program, back in September.At that time, the City of Houston identified more than 500 houses with blue tarps and allocated about two million dollars to repair at least 200 of them, with additional funding as needed.Turner said the rest were properties with worse levels of damage that would have to be rebuilt or demolished.Ironically, Rebuilding Together Houston is the city’s partner for the program.One of the first homes approved for repairs at the end of September was Huff’s, a retiree who lives by herself.Huff is a native of East Texas who was born on Christmas Day in 1938.She recalls vividly how she and her late husband bought the house. “I moved here August 1st 1970. We paid for this home October 16th 1986.”The day the new roof put an end to her eight-year ordeal, Huff had a simple wish.“I’m going to fix me some ginger tea, sit back and put my feet up on my yard and look at my roof,” she said with joy as the repair crew worked on her property.Marissa CummingsAfter eight years of not having a solid roof, this is how Huff’s home looks now.
