Master & Dynamic and Bamford Watch Department team up for these cool-as-ice wireless cans

first_img Editors’ Recommendations The Best Valet Trays for Keeping Your Stuff Together The Evolution and History of the Home Stereo The Best Wireless Charging Pads and Stands, No Strings Attached Master & Dynamic, an up-and-coming high-end headphone maker out of New York City, has teamed up with expert timepiece manufacturer Bamford Watch Department (BWD) to craft a limited special edition redesign of M&D’s flagship MW60 headphones. The result is a stylish piece of luxury audio that should fit right in with any smartly dressed audio fan’s best business attire.Keeping in line with all of Master & Dynamic’s sleek gear, the MW60 are a premium pair of wireless over-ear headphones inside and out. This new design upgrade matches black lines of stainless steel and aluminum, black lambskin leather on the ear pads, and black Saffiano leather trim on the outer headband and earcups with Bamford aqua accents on the underside of the headband and interior mesh of the earcups, as well as on the exterior logo decals. This touch of color makes the pair standout from the rest of the MW60 family — and other premium headphones as well.When it comes to technical specs, the MW60 impress. Custom 45mm drivers are fed by Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX technology, designed for high quality wireless transfer from compatible devices. They also feature long-range wireless connection (at over 100 feet), 16 hours of battery playback per charge, easy-access touch controls for power and playback, foldable earcups for storage, and of course, the same anvil-strong construction we’ve come to expect from M&D.Fore those who need a wired connection, the headphones ship with a four-foot long 3.5mm cable, a gold-plated quarter-inch adapter, a micro USB charging cable, and a canvas carrying pouches for the headphones and cords.Master & Dynamic says this meeting of minds came about after Master & Dynamic CEO Jonathan Levine was introduced to BWD founder George Bamford, whereupon “the two bonded over a love of materials, craftsmanship and their shared passion for engineering excellence and innovation.” Both companies are well known for their attention to detail and form, and a collaboration based on these mutual sensibilities makes sense.All we know is the new MW60 look chic and pair will with a spendy timepiece, a three-piece suit and, we dare say, a sharply cut crystal tumbler of your favorite beverage.The special edition MW60 redesign is available now for $549, and can be purchased from both Master & Dynamic and BWD.

River boys make statement in win over Mark Morris

first_img @AndyBuhler (360) 735-4557 By Andy Buhler, Columbian Staff Writer Published: January 3, 2019, 11:09pm River boys make statement in win over Mark Morris Chieftains get convincing 69-50 win Columbia River ChieftainsVideo Could this be the season someone ends Mark Morris’ 18-year run of league titles?That was certainly the question looming ahead of this season, and on Thursday night, the Columbia River boys gave plenty indication that they’ll be a firm obstacle. But coach David Long insisted his team isn’t looking that far ahead.“It’s an old cliche, but it’s one game at a time,” Long said. “We’ve just got to keep winning games. Records take care of themselves, RPI formula, we can only control what we do out there on the floor.”The Chieftains made 10 of 11 shots inside the 3-point line and held Mark Morris to 14 first half points, creating enough separation to withstand a late comeback to beat the Monarchs, with whom they shared the 2A Greater St. Helens League title with last year, 69-50 at Columbia River High School.“Tonight we wanted to come out and make a statement against league rivals and come out and give it to ’em,” junior guard Nate Snook said.

(Nathan Howard/The Columbian) Photo Gallery Share: “He’s a tough kid, good athlete,” He did a hell of a job in the second half. He’s the straw that stirs their drink. No question about it. We couldn’t contain him.”A Dirksen 3 gave River a cushion early in the fourth when Mark Morris cut the deficit to single digits. It was River’s four returning rotation players who delivered key plays to freeze the Monarchs’ momentum.Caden Dezort finished a three-point play and Snook hit a 3 to put the Chieftains up 14 with 2:23 left in the fourth quarter. Dezort added 10 points.Snook and Dirksen have stepped into larger roles in Long’s rigidly structured offense by filling in for the loss of the team’s two leading scorers from last season. GO Receive latest stories and local news in your email: 21 Photos Share: Well, statement made.River built a 22-point lead at halftime and stymied a second half Mark Morris jolt that turned the game physical.“Our defense really led the way,” forward Evan Dirksen said.Snook scored 18 of his game-high 26 points in the first half, personally outscored Mark Morris 13-6 in the second quarter and hit the dagger 3-pointer that silenced a late swing of Monarch momentum.Dirksen had 20 points for the Chieftains, most of them coming in the second half when the Chieftains looked for ways to respond to a fiery Dawson Fritz. The Mark Morris point guard hit a 3 and completed a three-point play early in the third quarter to inject life into the Monarchs and, perhaps unwittingly, pounce on River’s trend of coming out flat in third quarters.Fritz scored 16 of his team-high 19 points in the second half to help cut the River lead to single digits at one point. 2 Photos By signing up you are agreeing to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. Andy Buhler Columbian Staff Writer And with a disruptive perimeter defender on him (Fritz), Snook let loose in the second quarter by slicing into the paint and finding the free throw line, from where he was 4 for 4 in the second quarter. He also added three 3s, two in the first half.“When (teammates) get steals and I leak out, I get easy layups and I just couldn’t do it without my teammates,” Snook said.The Columbia River boys have led at halftime in every game but one this season. It’s a the mark of a team that knows how to start off strong, and against perennial league juggernaut Mark Morris, the Chieftains delivered a 16 near-perfect minutes of basketball.“Our halftime spread was so nice, that we were able to survive their run,” Long said.Now, in the grand picture the Chieftains (8-2, 2-0) appear poised to take a swing at the run the Monarchs have sustained over nearly two decades.

Why Air Canada flew a lone Boeing 737 Max across the country

While the world’s Boeing 737 Max fleet remains grounded after two fatal crashes, a solitary Air Canada plane has been spotted in the skies, shuttling between Quebec and Ontario.In a rare exemption, approved by Canadian aviation regulator Transport Canada, the 11 flights in August and September were partly to maintain the qualifications of senior training pilots, Air Canada told Reuters in response to a query about flight tracking data.A spokesman for Air Canada said the airline was not able to use similar 737s within its fleet “to maintain check pilot authority in alignment with (Canadian aviation regulations).”“So we are utilizing the 737 Max during planned maintenance movements to maintain qualification.” Between Aug. 28 and Sept. 8 the Air Canada Max plane criss-crossed between Montreal, Val d’Or, Quebec and North Bay, Ontario, data from Tracking website FlightRadar24 shows.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Then last week, it was flown to Pinal Airpark in Arizona to be parked in a desert storage site.Although unusual after the grounding imposed worldwide in March amid concerns over an anti-stall system, the flights highlight growing pressures facing some airlines as they prepare for the return to service of the 400-plane Boeing fleet. Air Canada says Boeing Max grounding hit it harder than other carriers ‘Extremely frustrating’: Air Canada will acutely feel the absence of Max 737s in the third quarter Air Canada scraps 737 Max flights until 2020, joining Southwest The planes have been sitting idle since March following two crashes in the space of five months.For airlines like Air Canada, which did not have earlier versions of Boeing 737s in their fleets, this has made it difficult to make sure pilots can demonstrate the skills required to retain their licenses.As North America’s sole Max operator which had not flown the earlier 737NG, Air Canada cannot use that model to maintain the qualifications of its check or trainer pilots, the company said.So regulator Transport Canada authorized a select group of Air Canada’s check pilots to fly the grounded jet, which was also conducting maintenance flights, the airline said.All the jets have the same control software suspected of contributing to the accidents, which Boeing is now in the process of revising to smooth its impact. However, some pilots have said existing procedures can prevent similar accidents.Boeing declined to comment.MARKET BATTLETransport Canada said in an email that it authorized the flights “because the carrier does not operate the Boeing 737 NG aircraft, but the pilots still need to maintain currency.”However, one U.S. carrier questioned by Reuters said such flights would not be possible in the United States where pilot training was not included in a list of exemptions to the ban issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.“Pilot currency isn’t a listed exemption in the U.S. order,” an FAA spokeswoman confirmed.North American Max operators, including Southwest Airlines , American Airlines, United Airlines and Canada’s WestJet Airlines, said they would only move their Max jets for maintenance and storage purposes.Air Canada’s position as a newly converted 737 operator follows a seven-year battle between Boeing and Airbus over the introduction of airplanes offering bold new fuel savings.The introduction of the Max, an upgrade of earlier 737 models with advanced new engines, coincided with a bitter contest for market share between Boeing and Europe’s Airbus, which was offering its similar A320neo.The feud saw both planemakers use the transition to a new generation of jets to try to poach each other’s customers, and traders said Air Canada’s 2013 decision to switch from Airbus’s A320 family to Boeing’s 737 Max stood out as a major defection.Now, the decision to switch suppliers potentially weighs on some of those same airlines as they cope without a 737 fleet.Boeing has predicted that the 737 Max will be cleared to take passengers early next quarter.The FAA, facing growing international scrutiny over its certification processes, has said it cannot give a precise date for the approval of software and training changes carried out in the wake of the two accidents, which killed 346 people.FAA chief Stephen Dickson plans to fly to Seattle this week to test modified 737 Max software in a simulator..© Thomson Reuters 2019 read more
