iLive Wireless Tailgate Speaker

Sports are back, which means tailgate parties are starting up again and this year, they’ll be more exciting than ever. After a year of being deprived of tournaments, games and the thrill of scoring at the last second, fans are itching to get back to sporting events. Hanging out with friends, grilling food and seeing who can drink the most beers before the doors open up are staples of any good tailgate party. But not having a speaker to blast your tunes and keep up with the crowd’s hype is a major buzzkill.

The iLive Wireless Tailgate Speaker is a must-have for any sports fanatic. The Bluetooth capable device can jam out tunes hours before and after the game without needing to be charged, has a carrying handle to bring the party with you wherever you go, provides easy volume control to drown out your competitor’s party and the wireless range can reach up to 60 feet to keep your music blasting even when your phone isn’t near it. And with the ability to change the LED light colors, even your speaker can rep your favorite team’s colors.

The iPhone Photography Book by Scott Kelby

You already know that the iPhone can take great photos, but if you’re ready to take your iPhone photos to the next level, here are five tips from Scott Kelby’s new book, The iPhone Photography Book, that can make a big difference (and help you get the best shots you’ve ever taken with your iPhone).

1. Super-Quick Lighting Fix
Getting your tone right—where your photo isn’t too dark or too bright—is a big thing when it comes to getting great photos with your iPhone, and it’s actually really easy to do (once you know the secret). After you tap once on the screen (right on what you want to be in focus), you can make the image brighter by holding your finger on the screen and dragging it up to make it brighter, or it down to make it darker. This makes a bigger difference than you’d think.
Lighting Fix

2. Making Your Photo Fill the Screen
Have you noticed that when you take a photo with the iPhone’s camera it doesn’t capture the entire screen? It leaves blank areas at the top and bottom (if you’re shooting vertically) or on the left and right (if you’re shooting horizontally). If you want an image that fills the entire screen, there’s a trick for that: switch your Camera app to shoot in Video mode. You’ll notice two things: (1) the video fills the entire screen, and (2) once you hit the red record button, there’s now a little white shutter button that appears onscreen. When you tap that white shutter button, it takes a still photo, and like the video, it fills the entire screen. When you shoot video, by default, it zooms in closer than the regular camera does, so your still image will be zoomed in a bit closer as well. But, it’s better than just cropping a still image because cropping your still image would make it smaller, and it wouldn’t fill the screen like this video trick does, so it’s definitely worth trying. I know a number of iPhone photography pros who only shoot in Video mode for that very reason.
Fill Screen

3. An Easier Way to Take Your Shot
Besides just tapping the round shutter button onscreen, there is another way, perhaps even a handier way, in many cases, to take a photo. This very popular way is to use the actual volume up or volume down buttons on the outside of your iPhone. When you have the Camera app open, and you press either the volume up or down button (as seen here), it takes a picture. It’s super-convenient, and my guess is once you try it, you’ll fall in love with doing it like this.

4. Killer Tip to Keep from Missing the Moment
If you see something cool that you want to take a photo of, and time is of the essence (you need to get to your camera quickly), don’t unlock your iPhone and launch the Camera app and all that (you’ll have already missed the shot!). Instead, just pick up your iPhone and swipe left on the screen. That takes you directly to the Camera app and you’re ready to shoot. You don’t have to unlock the iPhone or anything—it’s just ready to go. This is ideal for times when your friend leaves their locked iPhone on the table at a restaurant and goes to the restroom for a moment. I’m not suggesting you pick up their iPhone, swipe to the left, and start taking random pictures and selfies before placing it right back into the same spot where they left it, so the next time they go to their Photos app they see all these odd pictures, and then finally a selfie of you, but…I’ve heard of people who have done things like this. Not me, mind you. Other people. I’m sure.
Missing Moment

5. Want a Better Portrait? Cut Off Their Head. Well…at Least Part of It
Cutting off the tops of people’s heads in portraits is a super-popular look these days, as long as you cut off enough so that it doesn’t look like a mistake. It should look like you did it intentionally, otherwise you’ll hear people say, “Oh, that’s such a nice shot of him. Too bad you cut off the top of his head.” It has to be at least 1/3 of their hair or head to where it looks so intentional that nobody questions it. This brings your subject closer to the person viewing the shot, it makes the shot more intimate, and it gives it a more professional look (you’ll see this “cropping off the top of the head” look in ads on the web, in magazines, in product photography— it’s pretty much everywhere).

“42” Limited Edition T-Shirt – Leovici

Honoring Jackie Robinson: Leovici x JP Crawford

On April 15, 1947, baseball and the larger world we live in changed forever. When Jackie Robinson suited up for the Brooklyn Dodgers for the first time on that famed Tuesday, he went hitless through all three of his at bats. However, in the grand context of his story and legacy, it was unarguably the most successful day in the history of sport. Breaking the color barrier in baseball, Robinson’s actions penetrated deep into American society, had a profound impact on the elimination of the segregation practices black Americans faced daily, and provided fuel to the civil rights movement that promised to change the moral fabric of the United States forever. This momentous impact, which Robinson cultivated through his resolve, actions, and performance, still continues to have an unmeasurable positive effect on and off of the baseball field.

As a company that prides itself on innovation, excellence, and its promise to disrupt “the way things are”, Robinson is not just one of our inspirations, but also one of our greatest heroes. His performance on the field speaks for itself. Throughout his career Robinson maintained a batting average of .311, hit 137 home runs, batted in 734 runs, and was crowned a six-time all-star, two-time stolen base leader, MLB rookie of the year, and world series champion. However, as deafening as those career statistics may seem, the ballad of Robinson’s impact off the field will always sing louder.

The statistics and awards are impressive, but it is undoubtedly Robinson’s steadfastness, commitment, and desire for change that we and generations past, present, and future will continue to remember and cherish the most. The home runs, the batting average, and the world series title made Robinson a hall of fame baseball player, but his impact on and off the field made him a hero.

Reflecting on Robinson and his legacy has inspired us to partner with another baseball legend in the making. JP Crawford currently plays shortstop for the Seattle Mariners. While we are sure you already know a thing or two about his resume, such as his recent designation as the 2020 Gold Glove recipient, you might not know how greatly Crawford has been impacted on and off the field by the life and actions of Robinson. When asked about this impact, Crawford, a descendant of interracial parents started off by stating, “without him I probably wouldn’t have been born, he broke barriers that were larger than baseball.” Later when talking about Robinson, Crawford also stated that he was deeply affected by Robinson’s courage. “ I know I couldn’t do what he did. He got so much hate [thrown] towards him for no reason… to want to play baseball. That man changed the course of history… BY HIMSELF! He took on what so many people can’t even bear to take on a piece of.”

To honor this courage and one of our joint heroes, Leovici and JP Crawford are proud to present that this year, on Jackie Robinson Day (April 15th), we will be dropping a limited edition Leovici x JP Crawford “42” hoodie. The garment features a black and white portrait of Robinson on our bone colored hoodie. While we know that no garment, no matter how greatly it is manufactured, can live up to the legacy of Robinson, we are deeply honored that the Leovici name will be paired with one of its greatest inspirations.

The impact Robinson has had on Crawford continues to be reflected in his words, admiration, and love for the man who forever changed baseball and life as we know it. This impact can be seen on and off the field through Crawford’s performance and conduct. The standard set by Robinson has led us to the decision to donate profits from the “42” hoodie to the Jackie Robinson Foundation.

The limited edition Leovici x JP Crawford “42” hoodie will only be available for a limited time. So, if you want to snag one you will want to act quickly. Whether you purchase one of our hoodies or not, both we and JP Crawford hope that you will join us on April 15th to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day and honor one of the greatest heroes the world has ever known.

New Releases in Children’s Books

In Mona Lisa in New York by Yevgenia Nayberg (3/9/21; ISBN: 978-3791374451; Hardcover $14.95; Ages 4-8; 32 pages), a love letter to New York City, Mona Lisa is a tourist who experiences the city for the first time, and finds art, love, and inspiration in unexpected places.

Mona Lisa is taking a trip to New York from the Louvre. Yes, that Mona Lisa. The one with the knowing smile. After hanging in the museum for a while she decides to explore the city. She slips out of her painting and meets Tag, a street art figure. He takes her on an adventure from the Bronx to the Brooklyn Bridge and it turns out Mona Lisa doesn’t know as much as she thought. In this beautiful and charming book, artist Yevgenia Nayberg, an immigrant to New York herself, shows young readers the city she has fallen in love with. Cleverly portraying da Vinci’s iconic subject as a world-weary, know-it-all, Nayberg takes readers on a tour of New York. Mona Lisa and Tag eat pizza in the Bronx, listen to jazz in Harlem, dance to salsa music on the High Line, and swim at Brighton Beach. As Mona Lisa says goodbye to her new friend, she–and the readers–come away with a profound appreciation of the city and its wonders.

Spend hours navigating the world’s great rivers with Great Rivers of the World by Volker Mehnert and illustrated by Martin Haake (3/23/21; ISBN: 978-3791374703; Hardcover $19.95; Ages 8-12; 40 pages), a vibrant, fact-filled book for kids that blends geography, history, and culture.

Where in the Rhein does the Nibelung Treasure lie? What river helps mark the prime meridian? Why do people make pilgrimages to the Indian city of Benares? Why is the Mekong called the “Nine Dragon” river in Vietnam? How does the Mississippi divide and unite the United States? These and hundreds of other facts are explored in this wonderfully illustrated atlas of the world’s great rivers. Each spread in this book offers a colorful map packed with drawings, figures, and facts. Cities that border the rivers are highlighted, as are distinct flora and fauna, significant natural and human-made features, and fascinating historical details. A “biography” of each river describes where it flows, and its importance to the communities it passes through. Special attention is given to the ecological health of the rivers–those that are thriving and those in danger of losing their valuable habitats. Along the way, young readers will come to understand the enormous impact that rivers have on our lives, while learning valuable information in a way that will spark their curiosity and imagination.

Come aboard the Polar Star and accompany its crew on their half-year stay in Antarctica. Through full-page illustrations, children will experience the work and life of these explorers and scientists as they study penguins, whales, and seals, measure the depth of the ice, chart wind speeds of up to 186 mph (300km/h), examine old volcanoes, and withstand some of the lowest temperatures ever recorded. Kids will also learn about Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott, the legendary explorers who first set foot on Antarctica. Equal parts thrilling adventure and in-depth exploration, this book is an unforgettable illustrated expedition to Antarctica that is sure to satisfy the boldest bedtime traveler.
