High-Tech Boxer Briefs For the Athletic Man

Regardless of discipline or sport, athletes, in general, have one common mantra: always bring your A-game. That applies to everything, whether you’re sharpening your jump shot or increasing the power of your straight punches.

But that could be a challenge if you don’t have the right apparel. Everything should be a good fit, from the jersey, trunks, sneakers, all the way down to the underwear, which many tend to neglect. Comfort is key because you don’t want anything holding you back.

Good thing there’s a brand out there that provides the best boxer briefs for the superstar athlete. We’re talking about Tani USA’s top-of-the-line products. You can never go wrong with high-quality underwear, and this company provides just that.

Using newly patented, and innovative fabrics, Tani USA simply feels better and fits like no other underwear brand. With thousands of 5-star reviews, read for yourself about the amazingly soft feel,

The iPhone 12 Is Cool, But It Just Made The iPhone 11 An Even Better Deal

The iPhone 12 is impressive.

Some of its new features may sound evolutionary, but they hit all the right spots. The iPhone 12 has a new super-hard glass, a new design that makes it more compact and lighter than before, a new Super Retina XDR display, a super-fast A14 processor, 5G, improved cameras on all fronts, and MagSafe tech that opens up a bunch of new possibilities. (Check out our overview of all the new features of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini here.)

But at $799, the iPhone 12 is also more expensive than the iPhone 11 was at launch, and that’s a bit of a disappointment.

The iPhone 11 was a massive change in Apple’s strategy. For the first time, the Cupertino-based company positioned its mid-tier model as the front-and-center iPhone, giving it nearly all the important features of the Pro models, and all at the very

3 ASX tech shares that pay dividends // Motley Fool Australia

When it comes to ASX dividend shares, the mind usually doesn’t jump to the tech space. Tech shares have long been associated with high-growth, high-octane investors. If you ask a typical ASX investor to name ten top dividend shares, I would wager that there wouldn’t be one tech share on the list.

Tech shares and dividends have long had an interesting relationship in the investing world. Over in the United States, dividend-paying companies even have a certain stigma attached to them. Probably due to a lack of a ‘franking’ system, US companies are considered ‘mature’ or ‘tired’ if they start paying a dividend. Even today, US tech titans like Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN), Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG)(NASDAQ: GOOGL), Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) still don’t pay dividends, despite their mountains of free cash flow and (in some cases) trillion-dollar market capitalisations.

One tech titan that does

‘It’s a win-win’: Wake Tech EMS students take over critical health checks at NCDMV

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) — At this point in the pandemic, temperature checks have become routine. But starting out, the NCDMV Headquarters on New Bern Avenue had to stretch its own resources to get it done.

“We had employees who were doing this job–screening employees before they came in every morning. They did that in addition to what they had to do for the workday,” NCDMV Commissioner Torre Jessup said.

Now EMT students from Wake Tech Community College are taking over.

“We’re taking temperatures and documenting and making sure employees temperatures are within normal ranges,” EMT student Kathryn Sprague said.

The new partnership is a win-win for the school and the more than 200 employees at the DMV.

“Because of the pandemic, a lot of our clinical sites shut down, and we had a period of time where students were not able to go to clinical opportunities or they were limited

The ‘American Pickers’ of Aerospace Technology

In the television show, American Pickers hosts Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe sift through warehouses, barns, and storage sheds looking for lost or valuable antiques. The owners may not know the value of their possessions, or perhaps they aren’t inclined to do the legwork needed to sell the item. 

Joe and Tricia D’Cruz are the American Pickers of the intellectual property world, working with defense contractors and industrial companies to bring proprietary technology to market. With extensive experience in start-ups and early-stage businesses as well as leading divisions of multi-national corporations, they have built an advisory board that helps them identify needs in the marketplace with their company Catalyze Dallas. 

Finding these products, identifying their use, and then staffing new companies to market the products are multi-year engagements that require industry expertise and strong relationships with the C-suite in these companies.

Catalyze Dallas identifies leadership for the new company, raises

In the era of electric cars, machine learning and ultra-efficient vehicles for space travel, computers and hardware are operating faster and more efficiently. But this increase in power comes with a trade-off: They get superhot.


To counter this, University of Central Florida researchers are developing a way for large machines to “breathe” in and out cooling blasts of water to keep their systems from overheating.

The findings are detailed in a recent study in the journal Physical Review Fluids.

The process is much like how humans and some animals breath in air to cool their bodies down, except in this case, the machines would be
