Zappos was founded in 1999 by entrepreneur Nick Swinmurn, who decided it was time for a great on-line shoe company after failing to find shoes in stores and on-line himself (Zappos, 2012). Although he knew nothing about selling shoes he soon gained the advantage by recruiting Tony Hsieh a young multi-millionaire who had sold his web-advertising company, LinkExchange, to Microsoft for $265 million in 1998. Hsieh (pronounced Shay) ceased the chance in a market where people were still buying shoes from catalogues.

With obesity at a staggeringly high rate in the United States, people are choosing incorrect and often controversial, methods of losing weight. As a result people are gaining back those pounds they have worked so hard to lose. Eating the right kinds of foods is the most important way to properly lose weight. Paying close attention to the nutrition labels on the back of the packaging can help. One should not focus entirely on the picture of the food and its’ price, but focus on the Nutrition Facts label. The amount of calories in a serving is how much energy the body will be receiving. Consuming an excess amount of calories each day can be linked to obesity. It is imperative to, also minimize the amount of nutrients like fat, cholesterol, and sodium one consumes. Knowing how much nutrients to eat can lower the risk of certain diseases, like heart disease and high blood pressure. Not all foods labeled as healthy foods are in fact healthy for the body. Do not assume because the words “fat free” or “low fat” are present on labels it must be healthy to eat. The body may not be getting all of the nutrients because of added ingredients that make foods appear healthier. The second most important way to lose weight is choosing foods that......

Playing for Keeps

...Playing For Keeps: A History of Early Baseball by Warren Goldstein is a historical novel about the economic and sociological advancements of the game of baseball. Goldstein used sources like biographies, magazines, and various newspapers. He used these sources most likely because they were readily available at the time and provided him with many hands-on experiences and a direct source of information from that time period. Goldstein portrayed throughout the book that baseball went from a club-based fraternity sport based on pure enjoyment to a business that was profit driven as well as a boyish sport to a manly one. He states that baseball has “two very different kinds of histories: one linear, chronological, and cumulative, the other cyclical, generational, and repetitive” (Goldstein 2). The origin of the sport began in the nineteenth century. Baseball was created by taking three different sports – town ball, rounders, and cricket – and blending some of the rules of those games into what was then called “base ball.” Before the Civil War, baseball was played out of pure enjoyment. The first baseball club, the Knickerbockers, played themselves at first but eventually started to play other clubs in 1846. The members had occupations varying from firefighters, policemen, barkeeps, and more. Playing other teams created competition, which in turn brought up the idea of every team having their own specific uniform, captains, and an umpire at every game to call the shots. Soon......

Reasons to Keep Fit

...REASONS TO KEEP FIT “I once felt my breath cease, and seconds later my heart began to pound, so deep that I couldn’t explain what was happening to me. And in that moment I felt I was going to die, because the situation was unusual,” said Martha peters, age 20, student of INTI College, Malaysia. Fitness has been known to allow the heart, blood vessels, and respiratory system to supple fuel and oxygen to the muscles that enables long sustained exercise for the body to be active and to be in good shape.

The ability of the body to function or work effectively and efficiently, enjoy leisure time, meet emergency situations, be healthy, and resist hypokinetic diseases, is a state of being fit. Hypokinetic diseases or conditions are diseases such as heart disease, low back pain, adult-onset diabetes, and obesity which is associated as a result of lack of physical activity or too little regular exercise required by the body for its maintenance and active functioning.

...Srivastava Priyanka Singh FP Tech-II Proposal: The proposal is to study the concept of Virtual Fitting Rooms and understand the technologies involved in this concept. Introduction: Shopping for clothes online is an exercise in guesswork. Those jeans may seem perfect, but often as not, when they arrive, you try them on and they look terrible. It’s enough to keep a potential e-shopper from buying. E-fitting means "testing fit on the computer." Just as you have a fit session for a garment in real life, with a fit model and a design team, e-fit Simulator takes digital patterns and turns the pattern pieces into "virtual cloth" that can be sewn in the computer and tested on a 3D fit model, right in the software, showing you exactly how the garment is going to look before you sew a single real sample. Virtual dressing room is a relatively new concept which is slowly becoming more available on various fashion websites. Taking form in different ways, the virtual dressing room allows the at home shopper to virtually try on dresses and other fashions online. This allows the consumer to gauge if the style and the fit are an appropriate match before adding it to the virtual shopping cart of a web store. There are currently several different online virtual dressing rooms, but brick and mortar stores are also starting to use virtual technology in the physical dressing room. Technology Involved: The two programs, and are likely to revolutionize online......
