Bert H is a name that need no introduction to connoisseurs of liquid drum & bass. Since his first release on Celsius in early 2014, the Moscow native has slowly made a name for himself by featuring on some of the finest labels in the scene; including Liquicity, Fokuz, Galacy and Pilot. We now welcome his piano riff enthused, soulful sound to Skankandbass Records in the form of ‘Alone In The Field / Foreign’, featuring the mesmerising vocals of Becca Jane Grey on the B-side.

Why Canada Goose Jackets Are So Expensive | So Expensive

Canada Goose jackets are made to withstand the coldest places on earth, and the company has a brand history to back it up. CEO Dani Reiss used that history when he turned the company into what it is today.

Following is a transcript of the video:

Narrator: This jacket has been banned from a UK high school. Why? An effort to poverty-proof the school environment. Shielding low-income students from feeling bad about not having a pricey coat. Canada Goose jackets cost anywhere from $500 to $1,500, and they’re not just popular in English high schools. They’re everywhere. How did these coats get so popular? And why are they so expensive?

Pamela Danziger: Canada Goose started out as a working-class brand, and it was really focused on the working-class laborers up in Canada.

Narrator: Canada Goose was founded in 1957 by Sam Tick in a warehouse in Toronto, and it was originally called Metro Sportswear. By the ’80s, people were sporting the company’s jackets in the coldest places on Earth. Its expedition parka became standard-issue at Antarctica’s McMurdo Station, where the scientists nicknamed it “Big Red.” And in 1982, one of the company’s jackets made it to the top of Mt. Everest on the back of Laurie Skreslet, the first Canadian to summit the mountain.

Susan Fournier: So we’re always trying to find the authentic in a saturated world that’s kinda contaminated by materialism. You get those credentials through the craftsmanship. You also get it through a history of the brand, where it’s born of experiences that were actually real that then became products.

Narrator: So what do Canada Goose jackets have that others don’t? The company uses high-quality Canadian Hutterite down, recognized as one of the highest quality in the world. The company claims its animal fur trim disrupts air flow and protects exposed skin against frostbite. In fact, Canada Goose says its jackets can withstand temperatures as low as -30° Celsius. And that sort of quality doesn’t come cheap. Western coyote fur, similar to what Canada Goose uses, is estimated to cost $104.

Danziger: People need that kind of performance, that kind of functional quality in their day-to-day lives, and it’s unusual to see such a brand transform into a luxury brand, but Canada Goose has been very successful at making that transition.

Narrator: By the turn of the millennia, the company got a new CEO who would revolutionize the name “Canada Goose” into the luxury brand we know today. In 2001, Sam Tick’s grandson, Dani Reiss, was named as the company’s president and CEO. He started expanding the brand in Stockholm. His commitment to quality limited supply, but that only increased demand. The brand spread throughout Europe, mainly on word of mouth. Then Reiss targeted America. His parkas became the unofficial uniform for cold-weather film crews, and in 2004, the coats made it in front of the camera. Reiss continued to market through the silver screen, sponsoring film festivals in cold places like the Berlin Film Festival and Sundance. And its US exposure hit a new high in 2013 when Kate Upton donned a Canada Goose parka on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Fournier: Cultural marketing is that the products are part of the culture, and the advertising is actually the products just living lives with the people who use it. 

Danziger: Through that association, they really raised their stature, and again that’s an interesting, authentic way that Canada Goose made its entrance into the luxury market.

Narrator: There has been some backlash though. PETA has protested against the company’s production methods and pushed the company to use a cruelty-free alternative. Despite the protests, the company is on the upswing. At the end of 2013, Reiss sold a majority stake in the company to Bain Capital, which allowed the company to expand manufacturing in Toronto and Winnipeg and eventually open a store in New York City. Its expansion continued for four years, and in 2017, the company went public. On its first day of trading, the company’s stock jumped 25%, and it’s continued to rise through most of 2018. The company’s revenue has increased from CAN$291 million in 2015 to CAN$591 million in 2018, a 77% increase.

Bushfires rage after Australia’s hottest summer on record

Homes have gone up in flames as nearly 1,000 firefighters battle dozens of out-of-control blazes in southern Australia in the wake of the nation’s warmest summer on record. A days-long heatwave sent temperatures soaring towards 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) over the weekend, with bushfires raging across Victoria state forcing thousands of people to flee their homes.

‘It’s ridiculous out here’, people brave -22F (-29C) in Chicago

“It’s ridiculous out here and its gonna get worse!” says one person braving temperatures of -21 degrees Fahrenheit (-29 Celsius) in Chicago. Temperatures in America’s third-largest city are colder than Alaska’s state capital and even parts of Antarctica.

How The Alfa Romeo Giulia Is Made

Since its release in 2016, the Alfa Romeo Giulia has become one of the most acclaimed sport sedans on the market today. At the automaker’s historic plant in Cassino Italy, this award-winning luxury car comes to life.

Following is a transcript of the video:

The Alfa Romeo Giulia. Since its release in 2016, this luxury newcomer has become one of the most acclaimed sport sedans on the market today. Between its fast acceleration, incredible handling, and overall comfortable ride, the Giulia easily stands out amongst the wide array of options in its class. It is at Alfa Romeo’s historic plant in Cassino, Italy, where this driving machine comes to life. The Cassino plant has a production capacity of up to 1,000 cars per day. Since opening in 1972, it has produced over 7 million vehicles.

The building process begins in the plant’s press shop. Here the car’s body panels are formed through the use of both hot and cold press metal stamping. A combination of weight, pressure, and intense heat are applied to flat sheets of metal. Temperatures inside the hot metal press can reach as high as 950 degrees Celsius.

Next stop is the plant’s body shop. It’s the most highly-automated area of the plant, featuring almost 1,300 robots. Alfa Romeo takes advantage of new technologies to construct the Giulia’s body, the lightest in its class. Laser brazing is used in place of conventional welding to seamlessly attach the car’s aluminum doors, while fully-automated self-piercing riveting joins steel and aluminum components. A special gluing process is then used to attach the carbon fiber roof found on the car’s Quadrifoglio performance model.

In the plant’s paint shop, the car’s body is dipped and turned in an anti-corrosion chemical treatment bath that optimizes bonding to metal surfaces. Sealant is applied robotically to make the vehicle waterproof and airtight. Primer, a base coat, and glossy clear coat finish are then applied to the body. Each car then receives final inspections from paint shop employees.

The plastics shop is where all plastic components to the car are formed. This includes front and rear bumpers, dashboard shells, tunnel consoles, fuel tanks and more. These plastic components are constructed through a combination of thermoforming, molding, blowing, and painting.

In the plant’s assembly shop, the final product comes together. This area features mostly human-performed processes. Here the car’s chassis, engine, and gearbox are attached to the body shell. All glass and plastic components are added to the vehicle as well. After some final weather-testing and time on the dynamometer, the entire process ends with a brief test drive to ensure everything in the car is in working order.

How The Alfa Romeo Giulia Is Made

Ice is a lifeline for the world’s coldest region

Yakutia, in northeastern Siberia, is Russia’s largest region and experiences the planet’s coldest temperatures, but for the inhabitants of this remote place, the cold isn’t an obstacle, it sustains their very lives. Braving -41 degrees Celsius, locals harvest ice to use as their only source of potable water as tap water is only available two and a half months of the year due to freezing pipes. With the cost of digging wells too high because of the thick permafrost that freezes the ground all year, the majority of the villages in Yakutia stick to the old ways of ice picks and frozen eyelashes.

The Siberian city crumbling due to climate change

In Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk, one of the coldest on Earth, climate change is causing dangerous melting of the permanently frozen ground, or permafrost on which the buildings stand. Average temperatures in Yakutsk have risen by 2.5 degrees Celsius over the past decade, say scientists at the Russian Permafrost Institute located here, the only such research centre in the world.
