Muckles’ Ink making “quaran-tees” to help community come together

first_imgIn addition, Muckles’ Ink has a bigger concept they refer to as “Muckles Rally.” This gives businesses and local nonprofits the opportunity to pair up with Muckles’ Ink. Muckles will create the wanted material, and the business will then rally its market to purchase the products. In return, a certain percentage goes to that business. Coolbaugh says if you want to take part in this, the Muckles business design makes it a simple process. Some of the shirts feature designs from the famous cartoons of John Hart Studios – one of the companies Muckles Ink has teamed up with for this brand. “We thought well, let’s come up with some fun ideas for a new line of shirts, we’ll call it quaran-tees, brilliant. We’ve teamed up with a few businesses, a few local non-profits, and we’ve just kind of split the profits with them and do our part to help the community out,” said Coolbaugh. While the retail side is currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis, its online shop is business as usual. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Muckles’ Ink is a print apparel shop located in downtown Binghamton, and like many local businesses, Muckles is doing its part to keep its operations going. Founder Casey Coolbaugh and his team created a concept of shirts called “quaran-tees” to put a unique spin on the store’s apparel, as a way to not only stay relevant, but to help the community come together. “What’s nice about Muckles’ is its vertically integrated. So our print shop is in the basement. So we can come up with an idea and pretty much go from idea to product in I don’t know, a day or two. So if we have a fun idea we can whip it up real quick and if people like it we make some sales and print the order,” said Coolbaugh. “We’ve got some fun Gronk the dinosaur ones, some B.C. ones that are kind of like a newspaper throwback. There’s some cool designs. We’re just trying to stay relevant, you know trying to keep some money coming in. I mean everyone’s bottom line hurts now for sure, but we’re just trying to do our part, stay relevant and keep the dream alive.,” said Coolbaugh. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter.last_img read more

Latest: Liverpool 0 Chelsea 1

first_imgChelsea lead in the crucial game at Anfield courtesy of Demba Ba’s goal just before the break.Premier League leaders Liverpool looked to make their now trademark fast start but failed to score a first-half goal for the first time in 26 matches – and then fell behind following a mistake by Steven GerrardReds skipper Gerrard slipped and Ba raced through to score a potentially pivotal goal in the title race.Chelsea had spent much of the half under pressure but had the best chances and might have had a penalty before they went ahead.The home fans were quickly complaining about time-wasting tactics by the injury-hit visitors, who got men behind the ball and then had the first effort on goal.Ashley Cole, who has never scored under Jose Mourinho, brought a good save from keeper Simon Mignolet with a stinging 25-yard shot.Liverpool responded strongly and Philippe Coutinho missed a decent chance for them, side-footing a volley into the side netting after being found by Luis Suarez.And when Cole had to clear off the line following a corner, Suarez thumped the ball back into the danger zone and centre-back Mamadou Sakho blazed over.At the other end, Chelsea felt they should have been awarded a spot-kick when Mohamed Salah’s shot struck the hand of left-back John Flanagan.Suarez then went close, firing just over after Cole had given the ball away.Chelsea boss Mourinho, without the injured Petr Cech, John Terry, Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto’o, as well as the suspended Ramires, named Gary Cahill among his substitutes and gave Czech defender Tomas Kalas, 20, a full debut.Kalas made an impressive start and had a great chance just before the goal, glancing a header wide when found by Frank Lampard’s corner.But Ba, Chelsea’s match-winner in vital games against Swansea and Paris St-Germain, made no mistake, calmly slotting home his fifth goal in eight matches.Former Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge, who has been nursing a hamstring problem, came on for Liverpool just before the hour mark as the Merseysiders went in search of an equaliser.And they would have found one had stand-in keeper Mark Schwarzer not produced a fine save to stop Joe Allen’s volley.DembA baaaaaaaaa❤️❤️❤️❤️— Eden hazard (@hazardeden10) April 27, 2014Chelsea: Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Kalas, Cole; Lampard, Mikel, Matic; Salah (Willian 61), Ba, SchurrleSubs: Hilario, Ake, Cahill, Van Ginkel, Baker, Torres.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Raiders Straight Talk: A quarter-century of memories at the Coliseum

first_imgOAKLAND — With a quarter of a century of Raiders home football coming to a conclusion Sunday, the number that comes after 252 is zero.I’ve covered 252 Raiders games at the Coliseum since 1995. There were 48 exhibition games of which I remember almost nothing, expunged immediately from my brain as being the pointless exercises they were. Five postseason games, of which the Raiders won four. And 198 regular-season games, of which the Raiders won 94 and lost 104, with No. 199 coming up Sunday …last_img

Weightlifters No Match for Insects

first_imgFor Olympic season, here are more comparisons between human and animal capabilities.Weightlifting:  The BBC News showed that, as remarkable as it is for a human to lift 2 or 3 times his body weight, leaf-cutter ants do better: 50x their body weight – and they’re not even contenders for the gold.  A male rhinoceros beetle can lift 850 times its own weight – equivalent to a human world champion “lifting six double-decker buses weighing over 8000 kg.”  There’s more: “But, the species to beat is a tiny mite that has been shown holding forces of up to 1180 times its weight and even pull 530 times its weight on a vertical surface.”Sharpshooting:  The same BBC News article included a video of an archer fish hitting its target in the air from underwater, accurate up to 2 meters.  “This expert in ballistics even allows for the curving of the jet through gravity, and adjusts for the way light bends at the boundary between light and air, which appears to shift the position of its target.”   Blood-spitting cobras are pretty accurate with their shots, too.Boxing:  Animal contenders in the boxing ring include male brown hares and kangaroos, who fight as courtship displays.  As reported here June 13, mantis shrimp have the fastest punch known in the animal kingdom, 23 meters per second.Wrestling:  Champion animal wrestlers include red deer and stag beetles, with their “grand antlers and branching jaws” that lock during combat.  A video clip shows a beetle wrestling match.Swimming: Dolphins have the best skin suits to reduce drag, the BBC News said, with thick blubber for a sleek look.  But it would be hard to beat penguin suits, that glide along through a skin of bubbles.  As for long distance records, remember the polar bear that was observed swimming nine days nonstop? (1/25/2011).In other animal news:Elephants emit long-distance infrasound signals using the same vibrating larynx mechanism as humans, Science Daily reported.  Scientists determined this by testing the actual larynx of an elephant that had recently died of natural causes.Bird airlines:  Migrating birds keep remarkable time, PhysOrg reported.  Songbirds as common as the wood thrush” follow a strict annual schedule when migrating to their breeding grounds – with some birds departing on precisely the same date each year.”  A scientist at York University remarked, Much like airplanes, there are many factors that can influence birds’ flight schedules, such as weather at departure and expected conditions at the other end of the journey. Amazingly, these small songbirds are highly consistent in their timing between years.”These are wonderful stories that call for a film or Powerpoint presentation by someone.  A good entry was the Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution series.  Nature is filled with even more captivating events for us human spectators.  Cheer on our animal champions!

Buffalo City empowers hawkers

first_imgLungiswa Mama (left), whose stall is at the Mdantsane Highway taxi rank, was one of 90 informal traders who completed the Hawkers Capacity Building and Training Programme.(Image: Shamin Chibba) For Lungiswa Mama, an informal trader from Mdantsane in the Eastern Cape, business at the Highway taxi rank will never be the same. As of this week, her fruit and vegetable stall will reap profits she has only dreamed of – until now.This is because Mama and 89 other informal traders from East London, King William’s Town and Mdantsane recently completed the Hawkers Capacity Building and Training Programme.Earlier in December the 90 hawkers were commended at a graduation ceremony at the East London City Hall.The training programme is the brainchild of the Buffalo City Municipality (BCM) who had set aside R400 000 for this year’s course.Speaking at the ceremony, BCM mayor Zukisa Faku said that findings indicated that there were more hawkers than formal businesses in the city.“It can be proved by the fact that one finds up to three hawkers’ stalls in front of a single shop in town, not to mention the fruit and vegetable vendors who do not have stalls. The municipality can therefore not ignore this industry,” she said.“In this financial year, we will have to maximise the municipality’s job creation potential, and open new and affordable markets for our people to pursue.”BCM providing business knowledgeAccording to Samkelo Gqeba, BCM’s communications officer, the goal of the course is to equip hawkers with knowledge that will enable them to grow their business. “The course is aimed at building the capacity of street traders to enhance the growth and sustainability of their businesses, through the provision of business skills training.”Gqeba added that hawkers ran their ventures haphazardly because of poor of financial management and their failure to diversify their business.Therefore, the curriculum was divided into five parts, namely basic bookkeeping, stock control, health and hygiene, marketing and customer care, and costing.The programme began in 2007 after the BCM’s research discovered that hawkers, particularly at the Highway taxi rank, played an important role in the area’s economic development, and boosted job creation. It also found that many hawkers had neither the knowledge nor the access to information needed to grow. Since then, the municipality’s Mdantsane One Stop Shop has conducted the course.According to One Stop Shop coordinator Khungeka Somnono, these subjects covered aspects of business the hawkers were previously unaware of.“Participants have gained a lot from the training because they did not know certain things such as the need to register a business.”She said the training has helped hawkers understand the basic principles of running a successful enterprise. “Now they have learned they must have a bank account and save their profits. Others did not know about stock control. They only placed orders as they wished,” she said.Mama said the knowledge gained from the training has helped her business to soar.“I was taught how to deal with different types of customers in a professional manner. Now I am reaping the rewards because I am able to retain old customers and attract new ones.”The BCM course has also inspired her to tackle issues such as slow trade in the middle of the week.“The training has taught me to think out of the box and look for other business. I have decided to sell airtime to supplement my profits,” said Mama.last_img read more
