PUMA × NINTENDO TEAM UP

PUMA teams up with the iconic video game brand, Nintendo, to bring consumers the latest of a string of J. Cole’s signature basketball shoes: the RS-Dreamer Super Mario 64. The launch is in celebration of the 35th anniversary of Super Mario, and is the successor of PUMA and J. Cole’s previous collaboration, the now sold-out RS-Dreamer ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears.’

The debut collaboration with Nintendo features design elements reminiscent of Super Mario 64. The new pair of J. Cole’s signature shoes take the quintessential video game to the basketball court with its striking red and blue colorway and animated feature font and design. 

The silhouette features PUMA Hoops technology, which includes a disruptive cord lacing system for a snug and responsive fit, a ProFoam midsole and RS-Foam heel for maximum energy return, and a high abrasion rubber outsole for increased grip.

Like past collaborations between J. Cole and PUMA, the shoe will cross league boundaries and be worn by both NBA and WNBA players during their respective leagues’ play. The new release comes shortly after PUMA’s debut of the highly anticipated RS-Dreamer, J. Cole’s signature basketball sneaker in July, and its additional colorways in August.

The RS-Dreamer Super Mario 64 will retail for $125 and will be available starting this Friday, September 4, exclusively in store and online at the Foot Looker Inc., PUMA.com, and the PUMA NYC Store.

J. Cole × PUMA

After the highly anticipated launch of J. Cole’s signature basketball sneaker for PUMA – the RS-Dreamer – the two will be releasing additional, limited-edition colorways of the signature shoe in August.

The first release – ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ – is inspired by the grit, determination and hard work needed to accomplish one’s dreams, despite the obstacles faced or time passed. With countless hours putting pen to paper and throwing shots up behind closed gym doors, J. Cole knows the grind like no other. So, Cole and PUMA Hoops are paying respects to putting in that work with this next Dreamer drop – The RS-Dreamer Blood, Sweat and Tears.

The newest drop features an audacious red colorway, the Dreamer logo and PUMA Hoops tech; these kicks are ready to grind, as long as you are too. Nothing worth having comes easy. Available in limited quantities, the new launch comes after the initial debut of the RS-Dreamer in July, which sold out online and in-stores within minutes.

Retailing for $125, the limited-edition RS-Dreamer ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ will be available starting this Monday, August 17th at 10:00 AM EST exclusively on PUMA.com and FootLocker.com

Youth Against AIDS

Youth Against AIDS and AXA announce a collaboration to build a prevention platform for the young generation

On occasion of World AIDS Day 2019 Youth Against AIDS (YAA) and AXA announced a collaboration to support YAA´s efforts to create a comprehensive sexual health and prevention platform for the young generation.

Digital tools and technical innovations are creating new opportunities in the fight against sexually transmitted diseases. This is especially true for prevention amongst young people. YAA and AXA use the advantages of the omnipresence of smartphones and growing demand of digital services to reach young people regardless of location or time. The platform, called FAQ YOU, includes a chatbot to answer the most common and pressing questions about sexual health and sexually transmitted diseases (FAQs) 24/7. The beta version of the chatbot will be launched in the US. Further tools will be integrated into the platform which will give  young users guidance to services like conducting HIV tests, finding an STI clinic or condom dispensers or getting in touch with medical services via tele medicine. The platform aims to complement personal counseling services, which are often unavailable for young people, at at later stage.

“Today, we see many silos in the sexual health sector. It remains a challenge for our generation to access credible content, get the right answers on demand and to access youth-friendly services. We want to change this by creating a digital one-stop-shop solution for all needs on sexual health and  education that meet the needs of our young target group. We believe that we need more innovation in prevention and FAQ YOU will be our answer to push these topics and to make a difference in the life of young people. We are grateful for the commitment of AXA that enables us to use modern technologies to help our generation to live healthier lives.”

Daniel Nagel, CEO Youth against AIDS 

“The partnership with Youth Against AIDS is very exciting for AXA – with this initiative we support YAA to evolve from a communication and awareness channel for youth to a digital source of health related content and services on sexual health and other taboo topics. We bring our expertise in emerging technologies and data while remaining true to our commitment to health and disease prevention.”

– Astrid Stange, Chief Operating Officer AXA Group

Virtual Cardiovascular System

MU scientists advance a way to track changes in a person’s cardiovascular system

Scientists have discovered a way to provide early detection of various cardiovascular diseases — a mathematical model of the ballistocardiogram. While an electrocardiogram uses a contact approach to measure the electrical activity of the heart, a ballistocardiogram is a non-contact way of measuring the mechanical effect of the blood flow through the cardiovascular system.

“Even when we stand or lie still, our mass redistributes inside our body and generates a bodily motion that can be captured with a ballistocardiogram,” said Giovanna Guidoboni, the lead researcher on the study at the University of Missouri. “By applying our mathematical model, we can see information that we haven’t previously known about an individual’s cardiovascular system, such as the elasticity of the arteries, the contractility of the ventricles in the heart, or the viscoelasticity of the blood vessels. We built a virtual cardiovascular system by mathematically modeling the blood flow in our bodies.”
