Al Capone of the Yoga Mat

Posted: at 4:47 pm


without comments

As a springtime gift to myself, I bought a bright green cover for my yoga mat to sling over my shoulder. Conically shaped and easily tucked under the shoulder, its about 25 inches long (64 cm) and 15 inches (38 cm) round.

With it, I can jauntily hoof it the half-mile to the yoga studio where I submit myself to the torture of Pilates and yoga at least twice a week. The bag puts a spring in my step as I go forth to conquer the aches and pains of Boomer arthritis.

Yet something about the United States recently spoiled this idyllic picture. After Pilates, I decided to walk about 50 yards to the corner Citibank branch to get some cash. As I approached the corner, I noticed the Dunbar Armored vehicle with its motors running.

Being an American hardened by the United States gun culture, I actually thought to myself, Woops, maybe I should wait until they are finished. After all, they might think I have an AK-47 in that yoga pouch.

Silly thought, I said to myself. Probably been watching too much House of Cards. This is not the movies this is just my suburb!

So I went toward the door of the bank, trying to look as innocent as possible and definitely not like Patty Hearst or Al Capone preparing to empty the vaults at gunpoint. Unfortunately, I know my culture all too well: the Dunbar guard, exiting with a big heavy bag of cash, came to a halt, looking startled at me and my concealed mat!

Then the bank manager, with whom I have passed pleasantries in the past, furrowed his brow and looked at my yoga mat. Poor fellow I know he is originally from Spain, but he has evidently become just as cynical as my initial train of thought, after living in our gun culture for a while.

I deemed it advisable to move slowly and coolly sideways toward the automatic tellers on the sidewall of the room. I reached for my ATM card. At that point, the guard hightailed it out of the bank and the manager went back to his desk.

Obviously relieved, he sat at his desk and looked down. One of his colleagues, a young woman with a strong accent and dressed to a tee, smiled and asked me if I did yoga. Yes, I replied, pointing to the opposite corner of the block where the well-know yoga studio sits.

Arent we an exceptional country? A mere fitness aficionado, I was momentarily suspected of packing heat inside my yoga mat cover!

Reviews: Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Ultrabook

Posted: at 4:46 pm

The second coming of tablets came in on the heels of the iPad, and frankly, crushed the PC market. It took some time for the market to adapt to the new reality, but it has, and Lenovo has a handful of devices that attempt to cater to both markets. The Yoga 2 Pro, the second version of the transformable computer is available, and has taken heed of some criticisms of its predecessor. Electronista has been living with one for a while now.

The Yoga 2 Pro is thinner and lighter than the original Yoga, measuring just 0.61-inches thick (15.1mm) and weighing in at 3.06 pounds. It is also powered by the latest Intel Core i7 Haswell ULV chips, running Windows 8.1 - and it incorporates storage options up to a 512GB SSD and 8GB of DDR3L RAM. The Yoga Pro 2 also supports Intel WiDi for wireless streaming to TVs, boasts Dolby Home Theater v4 for audio, and is claimed to offer up to nine hours of battery life. As with most Ultrabooks, there just isn't room for an Ethernet port, but the Wi-Fi is generally sufficient.

The notebook, taking after its name, can flex into four different positions including notebook, tablet, stand and tent. It also features a new smart capability called Yoga Picks that works like a concierge to suggest suitable apps based upon the device's mode. In tablet mode, for example, the tablet will suggest apps like the Zinio e-reader, or sketching app Fresh Paint in tent mode. It also incorporates a new backlit keyboard, and comes in a new signature Gray or Clementine Orange.

The i7 Haswell processor makes light work of most tasks we've thrown at it, and as a bonus, doesn't seem to scald our lap area. The power-sipping that the Haswell line excels at serves the Yoga 2 well, with Lenovo promising about seven hours of battery life as a realistic "real world" result in normal use. Our testing bore that out -- gaming sessions with the processor-heavy Civilization V gave us about five hours of use, with surfing sessions and other relatively light use clocking in at over eight hours. Playing a H.264 720p video at 4000kbps bitrate on continuous loop sucked the battery flat in about five and a half hours.

The elephant in the room is the keyboard on the tablet. Older slates had a sophisticated rotate and fold mechanism, which broke more often than not. The Yoga 2 just opens all the way, with the (deactivated) keyboard and trackpad now adorning the back of the device. When the user handles the device in tablet mode, fingertips seem to naturally scrape across the keyboard, and try as we might to adjust our holding technique it just isn't a natural feeling. We initially hoped we'd be able to adjust, but our reviewers just thought that it was an uncomfortable hold as a tablet, which is unfortunate.

The biggest issue we're having with the device isn't Lenovo's fault at all. Windows 8 is simply suboptimal with high-resolution displays, with a lot of unused real-estate and microscopic text, which inconsistently responds to customization efforts within Windows This isn't a problem when actively using Adobe Reader, gaming, or other such applications which take heed of the higher resolution display and address it properly. The gaming industry figured out resolution independence in user interfaces a long time ago, why is it taking Microsoft so long to figure this out?

All told, the Yoga Pro 2 is burly enough to perform comprehensive computing on the go or at home. We like the power, we like the engineering. We can tolerate the transforming nature of the device, and wish there was a better solution for the keyboard, but it is functional as it stands. What we don't like is Windows 8 in any flavor on a high-resolution display like the Yoga Pro 2 has, which is truly unfortunate. Should Microsoft fix this problem, or make a truly resolution-independent UI, then the supremely high resolution screen on the Yoga 2 Pro and other similar devices will shine, and shine bright. Until then, devices like the Yoga 2 Pro are hard to recommend for everyday use.

Yoga used to help students learn control over their lives

Posted: at 4:46 pm

HOUSTON (KTRK) --

"I robbed a bar. I walked into an establishment with a gun and I robbed the place," he said. "Before the age of 21, this was my fourth arrest and I was on my way to prison."

Mai started doing yoga while serving a three year prison sentence at the Cleveland Correctional Center. Members of a non-profit organization called In-powered teach yoga classes to prisoners there.

Now that he's out of prison, Mai owns and operates a food truck and is planning on buying another. But he's still does yoga regularly.

"It seems like it's for the able bodied, wealthy, white population. That's what people think it's for," said In-Powered Chief Operations Officer, Cristina Houston. "That's part of our mission. To break what you think you have to wear, what you think it's supposed to look like, and who it's for."

In-powered also works with students at YES Prep, a Houston charter school for children from low income neighborhoods.

"It was one of those things that I needed to relax and zone out from everything," said 19-year-old Jasmine Pardo.

Another student, Giselle Rojo, ran away from home earlier this year. She was skipping school and hiding from her family, but now the 15-year-old believes she's on a better path. And yoga helped her get there.

"Whenever I hold a pose, you know, it releases emotions," she said. "I hold a pose and it's like I can apply that to real like scenarios. Like keep going, keep trying."

Trying is the only requirement in the yoga classes at YES Prep.
