Pirelli Elect

The Porsche Taycan is the first car to use Pirelli Elect tires.

With low rolling resistance to increase autonomy, decreased road noise, immediate grip that puts the power down for a quick getaway and a special structure to support the weight of a battery-powered vehicle, Pirelli Elect tires are changing the game.

They are developed specially with leading car manufacturers to meet specific technical requirements of and be compatible with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

The Elect marking, which was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019, is the distinguishing factor. It is available as original equipment for the most modern cars.

The new P Zero Elect was developed by Pirelli’s own engineers for the Porsche Taycan, and they capitalize on the already staggering performance.

Pirelli’s perfect fit philosophy was the baseline for the tire, and the compound, construction and tread pattern suit the Taycan to a tee.

Even with the power and low-down torque of the Taycan, the Pirelli tires give the driver autonomy, grip and reduced noise, enhancing drivability and perfecting safety.

All drivers of Taycan can now feel comfortable with tires designed with fully electric cars in mind. 

Pirelli has also created Elect versions of their Winter Sottozero 3, Scorpion Winter and P Zero Winter for all of the laws mandating winter tires in many different countries. The P Zero Winter is available in 19-inch and 20-inch sizes.

Winter tires are recommended for those who put in a lot of miles in the cold or simply want the best performance in harsh conditions.

When temperatures drop below 44 degrees, summer tires are unable to perform to their maximum capabilities. Winter tires are softer, allowing them to work even when temperatures drop below zero, providing secure braking.

New York Botanical Garden Reopening

The Botanical Garden began phase 1 of its reopening plan, welcoming the general public to the grounds of its 250-acre site, on July 28.

NYBG is among the most comprehensive botanical gardens in the world, an urban oasis and integral part of the cultural fabric of New York City, anchored in the Bronx. In this next phase of NYBG’s reopening, visitors will once again be able to explore the Haupt Conservatory’s interconnected galleries, each featuring a different botanical habitat and specimens from around the globe. Outdoors, the verdant landscape is currently showcasing seasonal standouts such as striking cardinal flowers, mauve asters, and sweeping grasses among its one million plants.

Scenic paths and trails crisscross the Garden providing opportunities for discovery through encounters with nature. The gardens, outdoor collections, and natural features include the Native Plant Garden, with its meadow, woodland, promenade, and centerpiece water feature; Bronx River, with its waterfall, which runs through the 50-acre Thain Family Forest; layered and colorful patterns and plant groupings of the Perennial and Herb Gardens; lushly textured Chilton Azalea Garden; award-winning Rockefeller Rose Garden; inviting paths through the Ross Conifer Arboretum; Benenson Ornamental Conifers; and more.

Tram Tours, public programs, and group tours remain suspended temporarily as a safety precaution. The LuEsther T. Mertz Library, Edible Academy, Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, and Hudson Garden Grill remain closed.

The first phase of NYBG’s public reopening was prefaced by Appreciation Week, when Garden Members, Bronx Health Care Heroes from the eight public and private hospitals in the borough, and Bronx Neighbors were welcomed with first access and complimentary tickets. Communities in the Bronx are among the most severely impacted by COVID-19 in New York City. Through this initiative, the Garden acknowledges, with gratitude, the dedication, strength, and resilience of Bronx frontline health care workers and residents. Free grounds admission for those groups, originally slated to conclude September 13, has been extended through February 28, 2021.

The Garden’s gradual reopening process incorporates enhanced safety measures based on best practices and guidance from health authorities and government agencies. New measures include requiring staff and visitors over the age of two to wear face coverings; increasing sanitization of public and staff areas; daily health screenings for on-site staff; supporting hygiene and social distancing practices; requiring timed-entry tickets purchased in advance; operating at a reduced capacity; and more.

The new, limited timed-entry ticketing system staggers visitorsߣ arrivals, promotes social distancing, and mitigates the risk of crowding in high-traffic areas. Advance purchase of timed tickets is required and will be confirmed by e-mail with the option to print or download a mobile ticket. Ticket options include the Garden Pass + Conservatory for access to the outdoor gardens and collections, the newly reopened Conservatory galleries, and the Courtyards; the Garden Pass for access to outdoor gardens and collections; and the Grounds-Only Pass, available to New York City residents only with valid proof of identification. Visitors who do not purchase advance tickets will not be guaranteed admission at this time. Garden Patrons and Members must also reserve timed tickets in advance. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the website at nybg.org.

Jeremy Zucker Makes Late Night Television Debut with “supercuts”

LISTEN TO “supercuts” HERE
WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE

Last night, Platinum-Certified singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker made his late night television debut performing his new single “supercuts” on The Late Late Show with James Corden—watch the performance HERE!

The live performance, shot socially distanced at New York’s MAISON 10 art gallery, brings Zucker’s feel-good summertime anthem to life. In just a few short weeks, “supercuts” has amassed over 10 million global streams nearly 2 million lyric video views, as the song was hailed by UPROXX as a “feel-good single” and praised by HYPEBAE as “a bright, summer anthem.”

“supercuts” was co-written and co-produced by Jeremy and Max Martin’s MXM camp in Stockholm, Sweden. Sunny guitar strums back-and-forth, as Zucker candidly details being in a relationship that you know is inevitably going to fail. Minimal instrumentation and bright chords offset the sing-song hook, “I don’t want to make your momma cry at dinner and see her at the mall next winter, at Supercuts, she hates my guts, well alright.”

Stay tuned for more to come from Jeremy Zucker very soon!

7715 New Song and Video

The Southern California-based alternative pop band 7715 released a new song titled “Lost in Boston” on Tuesday.

The song is accompanied by a music video that you can see by clicking right here.

The lyrics of the song suggest the band has met someone in Boston they love spending time with. The video leads us to believe they’d prefer the sunny beaches of Southern California, but they’re willing to stick around in Boston for a minute if it means they can get a personal tour of the city from this stranger at the bar.

“Lost in Boston” follows “Gone,” 7715’s song from earlier this year featuring Lil Aaron, and this summertime anthem will be featured on the band’s debut EP “Encino,” which is slated to release in September.

7715 most recently accompanied Bryce Vine and Mod Sun and is comprised of four members. JP Clark, the songwriter, has written for artists like Blink 182, blackbear, Bryce Vine and Lukas Graham. Stu Da Boi raps, Tyler Wilson sings and Daniel Geraghty plays guitar and produces the songs.

Their name came from the address of the house that came to be the band’s birthplace. While partying, jamming and partying some more, they found that they could combine their talents to make songs that are magnets to ears.

Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo Success

Jhené Aiko’s blockbuster album CHILOMBO re-asserts its claim to the title of R&B album of the year this week, as the deluxe edition powers the album to over 46,000 new units. CHILOMBO re-enters the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 at #6, and reclaims the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B albums chart.

CHILOMBO DELUXE adds nine previously unreleased bonus tracks and remixes to the original 20-track album – including the new single “Summer 2020” – with new guest features from Kehlani, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Mila J and Wiz Khalifa. Check out the in-depth cover-story profile of Jhené in the new issue of HITS magazine.

Chilombo (released in March) entered the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart at #1, and the Billboard 200 album chart at #2.  Over 170 million first week streams ranked it as the biggest album debut in four years from a female R&B artist (since Beyoncé’s Lemonade in April 2016), and the biggest album debut of Jhené’s career.

Chilombo arrived on the strength of its five massive advance tracks, with cumulative streams over 700 million to date.  They comprise: “B.S.”  (featuring H.E.R.), “Triggered (Freestyle),” “None Of Your Concern” (featuring Big Sean), “Pu$$y Fairy (OTW),” and “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” (feat. Future and Miguel).  The visual for another album track premiered in May, “Magic Hour.” The momentum continues to build with the release of “Summer 2020.”

Chilombo proclaims the artist’s full name, Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo, as it celebrates her coming into her own personal power. The initial jam sessions where she freestyled the lyrics to each song, took place on  where Jhené’s great grandmother was born. Jhené was inspired by the beauty and power of the island’s volcanoes, having visited throughout the years. Chilombo means wild beast. The volcano is symbolic of the beautiful, yet powerful beast. Jhené Aiko is Chilombo. In contrast to her 2017 album, Trip, which intricately detailed the process of grieving, Chilombo finds Jhené embracing her strength and power, coming into her confidence as a woman, a creator and a healer. She has always embraced magic in her particular brand of soulful, trippy, ethereal R&B, but now on Chilombo she has taken it all to another level.

THE MAGIC HOUR, Jhené’s highly-anticipated 32-city North American tour with special guest Queen Naija, originally scheduled for May-June, will be rescheduled. Special merch and digital album bundles are available at Jhené’s official D2C store.

Florida Mijas Beach

Only 25 kilometres away from Málaga and 20 minutes away from the most populated areas of the Costa de Sol, Florida Mijas Beach—a new complex where the name of the game is enjoyment in each and every one of its corners both day and night—opens its doors in Cala de Mijas. Dining and entertainment come together in 3,000 square metres of floor space comprising a restaurant, terrace, beach club with pool, sun lounge area on the beach and nightclub.

After captivating thousands of visitors in Madrid and Valencia, the Florida brand’s love for Andalusia drove it to search for a location down south where it could offer an all-around experience. Thus, it found the ideal multicultural venue in Mijas, where the group can continue growing and sharing its expertise in organising events, providing leisure activities and superbly catering to a large number of diners. Florida Mijas Beach has been created with a universal vocation: the enjoyment of locals and visitors—whether Spanish or international—alike, groups of friends, family and events.

Chef Iván Cerdeño is the mastermind behind a menu exclusively created for the restaurant based on local, seasonal produce. Awarded one Michelin star for his restaurant Iván Cerdeño-Cigarral del Ángel, the Toledo-born chef is responsible for the Culinary Management of Florida Mijas Beach as part of the Florida Family in its most Mediterranean iteration, offering Spanish cuisine with a refreshing twist through two clearly differentiated menus for the restaurant—more formal and avant-garde—and the beach club—much more informal with finger foods.

Among the dishes created by the chef, it’s worth pointing out the cured and marinated dishes such as salted fish or Salad Olivier with shrimp, dishes featuring the bounty of the land and the sea such as the traditional gazpachuelo from Málaga with salted fish, fried aubergine with rosemary honey from Ronda, fish such as fried whole rubberlip grunt with caper mayonnaise, and charcoal-grilled small cuttlefish. There are also Almadraba tuna delicacies such as red tuna tartare with tomato and smashed-up fried eggs, aside from an assortment of rice and meat dishes accompanied by side dishes that are up to the diners. And let’s not forget the famous ham croquette named the ‘Best Croquette in the World for 2020’.

Diners can enjoy the different nuances of the culinary offerings in any corner of the restaurant while taking in the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea. Florida Mijas Beach is comprised of different areas where the ultimate goal is enjoyment: Palmira Mijas, with its restaurant, terrace and cocktail lounge, is the most remarkable—gastronomically speaking—with offerings that juxtapose the avant-garde with tradition. In contrast, there’s Origen, divided into Origen Pool–for those who wish to sunbathe on sun loungers around the pool, enjoy the freshest fare or enjoy a drink at the Bar for the famous Afternoon Drinks—and Origen Beach—for those who prefer to kick back and relax on daybeds by the beach and the pool’s restaurant area.

And lastly, Lighthouse, the trend-setting nightclub where everyone can enjoy the cheekiest and most fun-filled nights until 3am. The place to be to spend the best nights in the area, which delivers everything that Florida Nights is widely famous for. A space that will offer different entertainment options throughout the night.

What’s more, the versatility and multidisciplinary nature of Florida Mijas Beach make it a venue with a unique style where all kinds of events can be held, ranging from corporate events to networking meetings with a buffet and hors d’oeuvres, including more informal meetings and even private events such as weddings boasting sea views. The diversity of spaces, the different menu options and the excellent quality of the ingredients used in the dishes are just some of the reasons why Florida Mijas Beach is the ideal venue for an event, where the customers’ enjoyment comes first.

With this opening in such a distinctive environment, the Florida Mijas Beach team seeks to add an all-encompassing tourist experience to the wide range of choices in Mijas, in order to give customers a unique experience throughout the day and night.

SUMMER OPENING HOURS

Open Monday to Sunday from 11 AM to 3 AM

Hollister Back-to-School

Hollister Co., a division of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF), and the global teen brand celebrating the spirit of an endless summer, is partnering with TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Pugliano for its new back-to-school campaign – leveraging the platform that has rapidly grown in popularity among its teen audience.

Charli, Dixie and Noah will serve as the brand’s “Jeanealogists”, together with science educator and television personality Bill Nye. The trio’s “experiments” in Hollister’s Jean Lab, led by Bill Nye, determined the science behind the brand’s perfect denim fits. This content will be featured across Hollister’s social channels and in store. Every aspect of the jean fits were tested and approved by Charli, Dixie and Noah, alongside other teens, to ensure they make teens as comfortable and confident as possible through features like smoothing pockets, curvy fit styles, new soft stretch fabrics and more.

“The ‘jeanealogy’ experience was amazing for us because Hollister has always been one of our favorite brands. We’ve been buying their denim for years and even borrowing each other’s. We loved being able to perfect our favorite denim and share it with everyone else,” said Charli and Dixie. Charli and Dixie’s favorite jean fits, which they hand-selected and marked with their official “stamps of approval,” will be featured in stores and online starting today, July 16.

As part of the partnership, Charli, Dixie and Noah are also launching the #MoreHappyDenimDance – a TikTok challenge choreographed by Charli that encourages users to celebrate comfort, and to share their “happy dance” when they slip into the perfect pair of Hollister jeans. Hollister fans who participate in the challenge will have the chance to be selected for a virtual meet-and-greet with Charli and Dixie.

“We are thrilled to partner with Charli, Dixie, Noah and Bill, as they combine the excitement of TikTok with the nostalgia that our teens love,” said Kristin Scott, President, Global Brands at Abercrombie & Fitch Co. “This is the start of a longer-term relationship with Charli and Dixie, both of whom share our passion to spread positivity and build confidence among teens – especially during the uncertainty that surrounds this year’s back-to-school season. Additionally, as one of Hollister’s original brand agents in 2017, we are excited to have Noah on board for an even more robust partnership.”

Throughout the fall, Charli and Dixie will also be participating in various Hollister digital activations, in-store shopping events, and more.
